Christian Fruitcakes

"No one is against Allah, except those who burn in hell."
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

There's no real difference between these two unsubstantiated sentiments; just because the Muslims are deluded doesn't mean that Christians aren't EQUALLY deluded. At least most of the CHRISTIAN religous fruitcakes aren't willing to kill people to shove their particular religion down their throats.

My response:

SDC: Thanks for quoting Christ. If I had to choose between listening to him or you, it would be no contest. As for substantiation of claims, the miracles Christ did, the voice from heaven saying "This is my Son", and the little matter of Christ's resurrection from the dead are all evidences that substantiate his claim to be in unique communion with the Father. The fact that the leaders of the early church chose death rather than renounce their eye-witness testimony of Christ's resurrection is further substantiation. As is the pouring out of the Holy Spirit -- an experiential dimension that continues to this day and to which millions have attested.

Now, what are your credentials as a purveyor of truth?
