Christianity vs. Islam

             Christianity and Islam are two of the world's most populous religions. Both are different in today's beliefs but similar in origin. .
             Like every other religion or philosophy, Islam also claims to be the one and only true way to God. The religion of Islam teaches that in order to achieve true peace of mind and surety of heart, one must submit to God or "Allah" and live according to His Divinely revealed Law. Being a Muslim requires willful submission and active obedience to God and living in accordance with His message. Muslims believe all of God's prophets, who include Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad brought the same message of Pure Monotheism. For this reason, the Prophet Muhammad was not the founder of a new religion, as many mistakenly think, but he was the Final Prophet of Islam. (Masters 1-4) The Muslim Bible, the Qur"an, is believed to be the last book of God sent to mankind. This is believed to have been given the destinction of being personally guarded by God from human tampering and shall remain safe from the tampering of mankind until the Day of Judgment as guidance for all Humanity. (Sabr Foundation 1-3).
             Christianity teaches that man is sinful and can never inherit eternal life in the presence of God as a result of the sins of our first parents, Adam and Eve, as well as our own personal sin. Therefore it became necessary for God to become man in the person of Jesus Christ, who as the Son of God was sinless and unblemished. His purpose was to suffer and die in atonement for the sins of all whom accept his sacrifice for sin. (The Geography of Christianity 1-3) Christianity is traditionally understood to be founded by Jesus of Nazareth as a religion for both the Jews and God-fearing Gentiles of the Diaspora. Christians view God as Lord and Savior over all and accept the Bible as his faultless word.
             Traditionally, it is seen as if Christianity and Islam have nothing in common.
