You got it all wrong. Radical muslims follow the teachings of mohammed who modeled conversion by the sword. Radical Christians follow Jesus who modeled conversion by love. He didn’t tell us to cut off the hands of theives but to hang out with them, love them as individuals worthy of GOD’s love and HIS sacrifice.
If one is to go blow up innocent people he definitely is not following the teachings of Christ. The Jews at the time wanted Him to lead a military and political overthrow of thier roman oppressors and He didn’t. He freed them from the oppression of sin instead and those who didn’t understand or refused to were the ones who wanted Him hung from a tree in shame.
Radical muslims have more in common with fascists and need a reformation to be able to live peacefully in the modern world. Christians have continued to grow in tolerance of others over the decades and the religious freedom of American individuals is a great example of that tolerance.

You believe in a loving Jesus like I do. Many Christians do not, or if they do it sure isn’t evident from their lives. They use Christianity as a sword of hatred, and as a way to bolster their own egos. This hatefulness is what has driven many people away from Jesus.

Watch that video I just posted and tell me how a RFC and Muslim would view it.

parsy, who says again, he hopes he is wrong
