We all have our own paths in life but you are a truth seeker I detect, so apart from my posts about the person of Muhammad vs the person of Jesus Christ being totally antithetical (and thus you have to discern which is good, holy, true) let me bring up another consideration to recognize things that are "of this world".Not of the religion per se. Maybe of some groups of people and their approach to the Faith, which I consider wrong.
Yes I know it may sound stupid or superficial but at the moment I don't have anything to add or to ask to the users who posted long and detailed answers. Like I said, I am going to avoid getting into debates about what's wrong and what's right. Someone thinks that Prophet Muhammad was violent and didn't represent a "true prophet"? That's fine, I don't enough resources and knowledge to use against this argument. Maybe I am too ignorant and don't possess enough knowledge about my religion? It may be. I didn't say I do and don't want to pretend I know everything about it. I just like to inquire about things and hear opinions from knowledgeable people. In this case negative opinions about my religion. That's it.
If in the coming weeks or months I'll read I post to which I'll have an urge to reply to, then I'll do it. Until now it has not been the case. Please don't take this as an offence or underestimation (don't know if that's the proper word) of someone's opinions.
Look at Mormonism and Joseph Smith. He literally followed the playbook of Muhammad to a T - both are reconstructionist religions, both were polygamists, both had revelations conveniently when things didn't make sense. Do you think that's a coincidence? Did these men live their lives rejecting things of this world? The answer is obvious and self evident, not that I'm asking you to forsake your life and family, etc. Just so that as a truth seeker, you are aware of what's going on. And this isn't my opinion, it is verifiable and based on the historical record and the claims of both "religions."
