What you say of Christianity and Today is true, howevere, as you know, it was not true at one time. What makes you think that Tomorrow Muslims may not be saying the same thing?Originally posted by: etech
The "Christian" church of today is not the same church that was involved in the crusades. Over the years the Christian faith has looked inwards and questioned and reevaulated its role in the lives of its believers and in the world.Originally posted by: sandorski
I think we've had this conversation before. The Crusades certainly do count and why can't Muslims have a Reformation?Originally posted by: etech

I think we know how you "feel" and what you "believe". It's what you "promote"(without stating it) that is a major contention. Islam is not the problem, look at history, it wasn't too long ago that Christians were doing the same thing.
How long ago was it? The Crusades don't really count. Funamentilist muslims today are killing people in the name of their religion.
Do you think that Islam can have the same type of reformation that Christianity had?
The religion of Islam has not had that "reformation" and there are many obstacles to it going through that change.
The simple act of questioning the relgious rulers brought a death sentence upon him. It is still under trial and may not be carried out.
Centuries ago the in the "Christian" church the same thing could and did happen. It would not happen today. It does in Islam.
Take a bible into SA and start preaching from it on the street corner. Let me know a few months before you do though, I would like to take out a life insurance policy on you.
