THE SUMMARY

JESUS | CHRISTIANITY

MUHAMMAD | ISLAM

The God of Jesus Christ sent His Son to die for you. The god of Muhammad demands that you send your son to die for him.

"When the threat of death becomes a door to paradise, the final barrier to temporal risk is broken.
When a Christian says from the heart, "To live is Christ and to die is gain," he is free to love no matter what.
Some forms of radical Islam may entice martyr-murderers with similar dreams, but
Christian hope is the power to love, not kill. Christian hope produces life-givers, not life-takers."

"The disciple is not above his master:
but every one that is perfect shall be as his master."
(Luke 6:40)

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom ye will serve; ...
but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
(JOS 24:15)
