Similarities Between Christianity And Islam by Orodje(m): 7:57am On Sep 03, 2017
We could argue until the cows come home about which religion is the best or truest, and it would be a monumental waste of breath. God is not concerned about which religion is better than other religions. God is concerned with how well each religion brings its people closer to God, and how well each religion moves its believers to love and serve their fellow human beings.

Perhaps God does speak the same truth to people all around the world. The question is, when God speaks, what do people hear? Two people can listen to the same story and come away with very different meanings. We hear what we need to hear in order to face our own particular challenges. People of different times and cultures hear God differently, according to their own cultural and spiritual conditions.


It’s not that God is different for different people. God is eternally the same. It’s that we humans are different from one another, and we each see God in our own way. God gives every person and every culture what’s needed to know and love God, and to love and serve their fellow human
beings but we are not talking about that now I will share more on that in my next article but you should know Islam is a Religion of peace and love, Mr A was born in a Christian home that is why he think that's the true Religion vice versa but the question is have you take your time to study about other peoples Religion.

Let's see some similarities between the Quaran and the Bible.

The Ten Commandments From The Bible And Quran (Exodus 12: 1-17 & Deuteronomy 5: 6-21)
The Quran (Chapter: Verse)
Note; the first is Christian while the second is Islam

1. Thou shall not take any God except one God.
1. There is no God except one God (47:19)

2. Thou shall make no image of God.
2. There is nothing whatsoever like unto Him (42:11)

3. Thou shall not use God's name in vain.
3. Make not God's name an excuse to your oaths
(2:224)

4. Thou shall honor thy mother and father.
4. Be kind to your parents if one or both of them
attain old age in thy life, say not a word of contempt nor repel them but address them in terms of honor. (17:23)

5. Thou shall not steal.
5. As for the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands, but those who repent After a crime and reform shall be forgiven by Allah for Allah is
forgiving and kind. (5:38 -39) Note

6. Thou shall not lie or give false testimony.
6. They invoke a curse of God if they lie. (24:7) Hide not the testimony (2:283)

7. Thou shall not kill.
7. If anyone has killed one person it is as if he had killed the whole mankind (5:32)

8. Thou shall not commit adultery.
8. Do not come near adultery. It is an indecent
deed and a way for other evils. (17:32).

9. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors wife or possessions.
9. Do good to your parents, relatives and neighbors. (4:36) Saying of the Prophet Muhammad (P) "One of the greatest sins is to
have illicit sex with your neighbors wife".

10. Thou shall keep the Sabbath holy.
10. When the call for the Friday Prayer
is made, hasten to the remembrance of Allah and
leave off your business. (62:9)


Who’s confused, anyway? God or humans?
Let’s tackle some of these questions. The
first thing to recognize is that God didn’t make all those religions, people did.
I would really love to throw more light on this topic but as all you know Nairalanders don't like reading long article, so I'm going to stop here maybe next time.

Please we should respect other people's Religion, let love lead cool

God(Allah) bless you.

Actually it is the followers that misunderstood their respective doctrines.
The two religions forbade the same things all through. But we are not adhering to the holy Quran/Bible
