topping the trend of religious warfare is the prime-most factor among people of faith. For ages, people of different religious faith were fighting and killing each other over religious beliefs. However, I have seen where people of faith can coexist easily and efficiently. Once again, this falls upon the shoulder of the religious educators of our time to make this possibly. Our lord already laid the groundwork for us.
St Luke 9:49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out demons in Your name. And we prevented him, because he does not follow us. St Luke 9:50 And Jesus said to him, Do not prevent him, for he who is not against us is for us.
WAR OF DOCTRINES
Men lacking the will to understand other men, in time will became like the beasts, and the beasts ways of life, will be ours. When we consider how religion comes about, it is rather stupid, for people to hate each other over religious dogmas. Especially over something that base on other people dreams. The founder of our leading religions said that they got a vision of God. Some said they had a vision or a dream of an angel giving them the revelation for the book that they have written. Moses said an angel has spoken to him. Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" said it was the angel name. Moronic Spoken to him. Mary said: it was an angel name. Gabriel spoken to her. Joseph the husband of Mary said: it was an angel told him in a dream about Jesus. Mohammed the founder of Islam said it was an angel name. Gabriel gives him the revelation to write the Koran.
I have seen where Muslims, Christians and Jews can coexist peacefully, if they truly want peace, and have the will to look for it. I reaches the place in my Christian walk with God, that I can live with any other religious people.
RELIGIONS ARE BASE ON FAITH AND BELIEFS
If you and I cannot prove a thing by scientific means. Then! The things have to be classified as hears says, or is in the same bracket as faith on beliefs.
Can my reader imagine a man tries to divorce his wife? The judge asks the reason for the divorcement. The man replied that he had a dream, or gets a vision, that his wife was having an affair with her boss! The judge would have thrown this man out of his courtroom, and dubbed him a fool of the worst kind. If a thing is base on a dream and a vision. A dream that is not even your dream, but other people's dream, it is rather foolish to fall for it. In addition, still more foolish to resent other and hate each other over it.
BELIEFS ARE BASE ON INFORMATION
Beliefs are base on information, if a person failed to believe, it is because you and I failed to provide information. If a thing cannot be proven scientifically. It has to be classified as faith on beliefs. If it is base on faith an beliefs, then it does not work killing or even dying for. There is no doubt, why God keep himself wrapped up in everlasting light hidden from the sinful eyes of man. We must accept his existence as we come into personal relationship with him. Even then, we still cannot prove his existence by scientific means. To prove that the so-call. Big foot Existed we must catch one, drag it into our scientific lab, and dissect it. Nobody has ever catch one, therefore the whole thing is base on hear says. It is rather stupidity for two educated person to be standing by the side of the road throwing stones and trash at each other over opinions that the infamous, Big Foot Existed.
All the foundation religions are base on a vision of an angels or a dream. It is up to each man to believe it or reject it. If it makes you feel good to believe it, then go ahead and believe it. If it makes you feel better not to believe it, by all means go ahead and do not believe it. After all, it was not your dreams or vision that brings the Bible into existence. It is each Christian's educator job to so educate the people. We must be ready to die for our believe in Jesus, but not to died foolishly. Why throw away our lives when we can live one more day? Why hate people when we can turn them into lovers? Why live at war when we can enjoy peace and tranquility? Look at the trend that follows in the following verses. Our great religion has it root in something an angel says. Or in a dream or vision.
MARY SAY IT WAS AN ANGEL NAME GABRIEL
St Luke 1:26-35 (KJV) And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.  And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.  And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
JOSEPH SAY AN ANGEL APPEAR
TO HIM IN A DREAM
Matthew 1:20 (KJV)But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
MOSES SAY AND ANGEL SPOKE WITH HIM
Exodus 3:2 (KJV)And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
MUHAMMAD SAY IT WAS AN ARCHANGEL NAME GABRIEL
Muhammad probably heard Christians and Jews expound their religious views at commercial fairs in Mecca, and, troubled by the questions they raised, he periodically withdrew to a cave outside Mecca to meditate and pray for guidance.
During one of these retreats, he experienced a vision of the archangel Gabriel, who proclaimed him a prophet of God. He was greatly perplexed by the experience but was reassured by his wife, and, as new revelations followed, he came to accept his prophetic mission. His wife and his cousin Ali became his first followers, and eventually he began to preach in public, reciting the verses of his revelation, which came to be known as the Qur'an (Koran). He gained some prominent converts, but the movement grew slowly.

Muhammad (prophet) (570?-632), founder of Islam, whose prophetic teachings, encompassing political and social as well as religious principles, became the basis of Islamic civilization and have had a vast influence on world history.

Muhammad was born in Mecca. He belonged to the clan of Hashim, a poor but respected branch of the prestigious and influential tribe of Quraysh. His father died before he was born, and after his mother's death when he was six, he was brought up by his uncle Abu Talib. Pensive and withdrawn in temperament, he displayed an acute moral sensitivity at an early age, and he was known as al-Amin the trusted one). Like his fellow tribesmen, he became a trader and made several journeys to Syria, where he may have met and conversed with Christians. He then began to manage the business of a rich widow, Khadija; she was greatly impressed by both his honesty and ability, and she shortly offered him marriage, which he accepted at the age of 25.
JOSEPH SMITH THE FOUNDER OF THE MORMON FAITH
"Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" Joseph Smith organized the Mormon religion after experiencing a series of visions from 1827 to 1830 that called him to restore true Christianity. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, major world religion of 11 million members, established in 1830 by Joseph Smith, known as the prophet. Followers of this religion are called Mormons. From a handful of members at the beginning, the movement has grown steadily through proselytizing and a relatively high birth rate. By the early 1990s, there were 5 million Mormons in the United States and the number in other countries around the world totaled slightly more than that. Before World War II, conversions had been most numerous in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Scandinavia, but during recent years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has grown rapidly in developing countries.
Smith translated the Book of Mormon from gold plates that he said the angel Moroni revealed to him. The new religion, officially called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, drew converts rapidly. Due to severe persecution by outsiders, the Mormons fled from New York to Ohio and Illinois. A mob, suspicious of the economic and political power of the Mormons, as well as the Mormon practice of polygamy, killed Smith in Carthage, Illinois in 1844.Hulton Deutsch

NO MAN EVER SAW GOD
Exo 33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. Exo 33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: Exo 33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:
Exo 33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
1Jn 4:12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.
1Jn 4:20 If anyone says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar. For if he does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
St John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
KORAN AND BIBLE SAID MARY IS JESUS MOTHER.
Luke 1:26-28 (KJV) And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.  And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Koran 3:45 Behold! The angels said: "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: His name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah;"
BOTH THE KORAN AND THE BIBLE SAID,
MEN DID NOT KILL JESUS, AS IT SEEMS
Koran 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah"; --But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, in addition, those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no
(Certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not: --
Koran 4:158 Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise; --Koran 4:159 And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them; --
JESUS SAY HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE.
John 10:17 (KJV)Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. John 10:18 (KJV) No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
John 10:19 (KJV) There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
Both writers. The Koran and Jesus are using sarcasm. Is as if they are mocking the enemy of souls. They really think they kill Jesus, but Jesus was not killed by the will of men, as it seem. This is what the writer is saying. They are not saying that the Bible account that Jesus was killed is false. The Koran is not contradicting the Bible, they are in agreement.
THE KORAN ENDORSES THE BIBLE
Koran 2:62 Section 8. Those who believe (in the Koran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, --any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, shall have their reward with their Lord: On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Koran 5:72 Those who believe (in the Koran), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians, --any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, --on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Koran 22:17 Those who believe (in the Koran), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians, Christians, Megians, and Polytheists, --Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: For Allah is witness of all things.
THE JEWISH SCRIPTURES
Isaiah 9:6-AV For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Acts 4:12-AV Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Matthew 1:21-AV And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
WE SHOULD NOT BELITTLE THE RELIGION OF OTHERS
People take offence toward those who look down upon their religion. Treat people like how you would want them to treat you. You found the truth; do not use it to stone others.
Not everybody that is born in a Christian's family is Christians. Accepting Jesus is a personal choice each person must made on his or her own. It is not good wisdom to stop our family member who falls in love with Muslims from getting married if they want. When people come of age, they should be free to do as they please. Without we cast them out of the family, only because they choose to marry somebody from a different religion. The scriptures told us not to marry to an unbeliever. However, I do not see genuine Muslim as unbeliever. Because a person is a protestant, and the other is a catholic, they should not classify each other as unbeliever. They both believe in God, but differ in some things. Even a Christianís pastor and his wife in some cases have different opinion on certain subjects.

and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will
Do you repent of your sins before God and Man, and do you embraces Jesus as your savior? If the answer is yes! By the power invested in me, by the Church, and by the Holy Ghost. I pronounce you forgiven of your sins. Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
