Muslims promote Sharia law. Why do Christians not promote their law?

Franco Carrieri - pass your disagreement to Amazon. Mail them. It's they who say so. And they are the owners of this forum.

If you disagree, buy Amazon and change the rules

If you are so totally unable to go to *this* OFFICIAL thread:

and to *read* what the *Amazon Community Team* says to you, I very much doubt anything of what you say has any value

The Koran denies that God is a Trinity--"God has no son" and they say Christians are infidels for believing in a Trinity. Bible says God told Moses his name was the Hebrew word for "I AM WHO AM". But Mohammed says Archangel Gabriel told him God's name was "Allah" (recycled name of pre-Islamic animist moon-god-- convenient for Mo. Crescent moon also recycled as symbol of Islam. Not terribly creative)

Why don't Christians push to make their religious law to be civil law the way Muslims do? Hint: Christ said, "My kingdom is not of this world." and at another time, "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." This sounds like he was in favor of separation of church and state. . .

That is none of your business, Franco Carrieri.

Tell you a secret though. I am a devouted worshipper of St. Antispam, and that makes you an infidel in my view

The Jews have Halakah courts operating in the UK, Muslims have Sharia 'courts' operating in the UK.

Christians are the only ones that claim to follow scripture but don't put any of it intopractice or practice the beliefs of the 'founder' of Christianity. For example:

1) Jesus believed in the One god - Christians beleieve in Trinity
2) Jesus did not eat pork - Christians eat it
3) Jesus was circumcised - Christians especially in the West don't follow it

There are many other examples!

Could I respectfully suggest that before you draw a straight line between Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas you do a google search on Ibn Sina?

Hi Mrs R
A wee piece of trivia for you. There are 99 names for Allah in Arabic. It is said that camels look so proud because they know his 100th name.
Cheers

Ian says:
"This indicates that either Muslims are more religious than Christians, or Christians know that their laws would never be accepted as the law of the land."

Or, Christians beleive that their God will judge everyone in death and there is no need to force their law on others in this life. Muslims lack this confidence and instead use their religion as an excuse to make everyone live life according to their 'religious' rules.

Then again, there are a lot of Christians who do try to make people live according to their rules; they must be the ones who are not confident in the truth of their beliefs.

Paula Unger says:
Strictly speaking - that is, based on the reported words of Jesus as witnessed in the Gospels - the Christians don't have a law. The Law Jesus preached was the Law of Moses, but his crucifixion was his willing sacrifice to fulfil that Law and he says: "I came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it". (Sorry, can't remember the exact reference.)

Paul develops quite a complicated argument explaining this point (again, read it too long ago to think of the reference right now and no Bible to hand), of how Christians are absolved of the Law and therefore no longer bound by it. So the idea of Christians pushing a 'Christian Law' is actually rather unscriptural.

Roma says:
Ciao Franco
There are, fortunately very few, people who need to despise others: some of these are religious and some are not. I don't think it wise to ever make gross generalisations of specific groups of people. Many people are inspired by their religious beliefs to treat others with respect and to act compassionately towards those in need of support - as many do who profess no religious faith at all.

Arrivederci

It seems my post was too complex for you to read/understand yet again. Sorry, I can't post in pictures, so won't bother anymore

If you mention your book one more time I will write it a review. I don't think you want my review...
