He protects us
The one who is above us
The great son
He is the sky and the light
He protects us from evil
now and in the afterlife
Am I describing Jesus, or Horus? A God from 2400 BC. Admittedly Jesus never threw his semen on lettuce though.
Uniting the people
The last prophet sent from God
to spread his word
Persecuted for his claims and beliefs
Ascended to heaven
Jesus or Muhammed?
Came to unify us
Messenger of God
God is the source of all creation
We should connect to God through prayer
and service to humanity
God has no equal
Bahá’u’lláh, Jesus, Muhammed? Should we go on to compare Buddha, Krishna, L. Ron Hubbard?
Since Christ is the basis of Christian faith, it was incorrectly assumed that Muhammed was an equivalent. With time the feeling that “something would have to be done about Islam” grew. At the time they attempted forms like wholesale Muslim to Christian conversion - which was primarily politically motivated - protecting “our way of life”.
When the original story is lost, the next generation can't tell the difference between what was lore or history. All things are equal and unknown.
