Updated post for greater clarification and sensitivity toward the Muslim population:
This is a radical question about a radical situation. Islam is not a religion, nor a race; it is a complete life ideology (including politics) that allows no room for dissent. If you are a Muslim, you must believe in the Koran, or you have no basis for calling yourself a Muslim. If you believe in the Koran, then you believe that infidels (those who are not Muslim) must have one of three statuses – be dead, be a slave to Muslims (called dhimmitude), or be converted willingly or unwillingly. There are no other options. Below are numerous links to a better understanding of the threat to your freedom and way of life. If it’s o.k. in the Koran for a Muslim to lie to infidels (unbelievers) in order to either deceive an infidel in the Jihadist war, or to achieve his objectives in general, then how do you know when he/she is not lying?
Keeping this in mind, it is also noteworthy that Christianity is a world view that in the minds of Christians requires the permeation of its tenets throughout all of culture. This puts Christianity directly at odds with Islam. The main difference is that Christianity wishes to do it by peaceful persuasion , and not by chopping off heads or enslaving anyone. Christians understand they are chosen by God, and they can do no work to be chosen or get into heaven, but Islam, along with virtually all other religions, calls for works to be accomplished to please God and get into heaven. The difficulty arises when one tries to decide what kind of works and how many works and how many works are enough. Below, please find a copious list of links for your review and consideration. Your life, liberty and happiness depends upon understanding this dilemma.
