    Hello everyone!


    I hope I can find some good conversation and build friendships here.


    My religion is hard to nail down, so to speak. I have a Muslim friend on FB who calls me her friend who "doesn't know he's a Muslim".

    I consider myself Christian, but it's more complicated than that. While I was raised "judeo-christian" (my term for those who believe Jesus is a God and the "jews" we have today are the descendants of the Israelites of the Bible), and after a short stint as an atheist (thanks public schools), I now consider myself a "True Christian"; one who follows God's Law, believes in One God, knows who the real Israelites are, that Jesus is God's greatest prophet, and Muhammad is God's final prophet.


    I told you it's complicated.

    No because you basically said it's complicated and a few other things if it was the same as what I said then you wouldn't have said that u would have said I'm a Muslim and also you quoted your friend instead of saying I am a Muslim but I havnt token my shehada so that means that you don't believe your a Muslim but people say that you are and I'm just re assuring that you are a Muslim

    If you are a Christian or a Muslim, you are brothers in the faith. If you are "jewish" then you follow the Talmud over the Torah, which is not a holy book, but a satanic (satanists and wiccans even use the jewish kabbala for their holy book). If you are "judeo-christian" then you believe Jesus was a god and you worship the israeli state. Christians and Muslims are on one side (with God I believe), and "jews" and "judeo-christians" are on the other.

    I think you are confusing Christian with "judeo-christian". I do not believe that Jesus was a god, or that the "jews" in the world today are the descendants of the Israelites of the Bible (their own writings admit this).

    Greetings Geoffrey, and welcome to the forum.

The Final Testament if you like, after the Old and the New. If you accept the final Prophet, are you prepared to follow the final scripture too, which is 100% the word of God, with not a single word from any man adulterating it, which supersedes the previous scriptures, while being a continuation, confirmation and culmination of the original message contained within them, in its last and final form?

    Peace.
