    What if what Jesus said to the christians count for those who follow christianity
    What Muhammad told his followers count for those who follow Islam and so on?

    That the teaching that has been given gives the answer to that particular prophets teaching?
    (and yes i do see Jesus as a prophet and not as Gods son)

    Is anyone going to be saved? Saved by whom, from what? We have only one life; and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, knowledgeable or ignorant, all will pass away.

    Yes that would two completely different ' truths ' . Islam and Christianity are not compatible at all . Literally what Islam teaches about Jesus and salvation is the complete opposite . A Muslim dare not even think about their God having a ' Son ' , or that Jesus is God , came to earth as a baby ,lived among us and was eventually crucified . Islam completely rejects Christianity s central core claims .
    9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    When it says ' Lord ' in verse 9 this a reference to him as God . This is to be believed . That Jesus is Lord . Not a prophet . Yes he was a prophet also but thats not the same thing as claimed by Islam.

    Yes there is differences in the teaching between Christianity and Islam that does not (in my understanding) mean its wrong from any of them

    It depends on what you mean ' its wrong ' . We have two different Jesus,s . Tnwo different Gods , two different plans of salvation ( Islam being a works based religion , good deeds out weighing, bad deeds ect ) Contradicting books . You couldn't have two more opposing worldviews if you tried . Literally one has to be false on its claims about Jesus and about salvation . Islam says Jesus is not God , he didn't die for the sins of the world , He was not crucified , he did not rise from the dead ect . This is the essential part of the bible/ Christianity. Only one can be the truth .

    To be a "good" muslim it is a lot of work inward yes. And much about understanding our own faults in life, so we can correct our own being.

    I worry about repair people too. It wasn't about homeless people. It was about strangers.

    I do not fear for my life so much as I might fear being used.

    I believe it is more than a view, it is a living reality.

    I believe you are going by what you were taught by the church and not what Jesus said.

    As if a holographic existence were not enough, please take a peek at this:
    Is Time Linear, or Can the Future Influence the Past?
    It's a perplexing concept worthy of intel scrutiny.
