. . . Oh, wait...are you going to pull one of those "True Jew" arguments where you decide that only a Christians is a real Jew and those who call themselves Jews don't count?
Why don't you start by telling us what you think a "Jew" is? ------Before determining who is or isn't a Jew, it would be nice to know what a Jew is?
The term is problematic for many reasons (I assume we will get into those reasons, here), but it shouldn't be.
The term refers to a state of "notness," similar to the term "sober." It's the natural, an affected state. The default.
Sober, means "not drunk." Infants are sober, just like chickens and jellyfish, though we don't apply that term to infants, chicken, or jellyfish, unless there's extenuating circumstances that merit the term's use.
Atheist, means "not a god believer." Infants...
Faith is a word to signify our emotional engines. It's a necessary partner to reason. Reason should be the captain at the helm, while faith is the motive power. Without the former, we run off course and eventually end up on the rocks; and without the motivation of faith, we're dead in the water ending with the same fate.
Faith that denies the use of reason is blind faith.

Also, not just aimed at Muslims: Folks of other religions with prophets; do...
And if there is a scriptural proof, please provide it.
In various discussions I have had over the years with people about their concepts of Heaven and Hell I have noticed something interesting. Keep in mind that most of those I have had this discussion with are from a more Christian fundamentalist background.
When discussing concepts of Heaven there was much room for friendly discussion. Some had the streets of gold in the clouds view. Some had an opinion that Heaven would be a perfect world with beautiful mountains sparkling rivers and no...
There is much talk today on the subject of end times, especially among Christians and Muslims. With this in mind I would like to invite my friends on this forum, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Hindu, or whatever faith or tradition you follow to share with us your views on this subject.
Personally i don't think it is fair, most people haven't recognized the Gospel of John is made up, the writings of Paul contradict Yeshua, and Simon being called the stone (petros), was meant to warn people he would mislead them.
So realize it is far to late to stop it happening to begin with, as most Jews, Muslims, and Christians have all been mislead by what they'd call the Dajjal, Anti-Christ or Armilus.
Yet what to do to inform everyone it has already occurred? Is it possible based on...
