There is no reason to argue anymore,
In both the Gospel (the New Testament) and the Koran (the
Final Testament) the mission and identity of Jesus is echoed in
Christians and Muslims are in accord, consent,
acknowledgment, corroboration, harmony , unanimity, solidarity,
coexistence, attunement, settlement, compatibility, that Jesus

Along with other similarities, such as that we both believe
we will pass by Jesus on the Day of Judgement [as Jesus is
quoted as saying 'no one will go to the Creator except by me'],
we both believe Jesus is a descendant of Prophet Abraham, that
Jesus was born in Israel, the Jews were violent towards Jesus.
We also agree about the Ten Commandments:
(Exodus 12: 1-17 & Deuteronomy 5: 6-21) with confirmation in the
1. There is only One God (Koran 47:19)
2. Thou shall make no image of God, there is nothing whatsoever
like unto Him (Koran 42:11)
3. Thou shall not use God's name in vain, nake not God's name an
excuse to your oaths (Koran 2:224)
4. Thou shall honor thy mother and father, be kind to your
parents if one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say
not a word of contempt nor repel them but address them in terms
of honor. (Koran 17:23)
5. Thou shall not steal. (Koran 5:38 - 39)
6. Thou shall not lie or give false testimony. (Koran 24:7)
7. Thou shall not kill, If anyone has killed one person it is as
if he had killed the whole mankind (Koran 5:32)
8. Thou shall not commit adultery, do not come near adultery. It
is an indecent deed and a way for other evils. (Koran17:32)
9. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors wife or possessions.
10. Thou shall keep the Sabbath holy.(Koran 62:9)
Therefore, Muslims are not anti-Christs as a few separatists
teach, we are worshippers of the God of Abraham as our fellow
Christians are, we have a Christology similar to millions of
Millions of educated Bible following Christians also have
similar views as Muslims regarding the Prophethood of Jesus;
The very first groups of Christians such as the Ebonites, the
Cerinthians, the Basilidians, the Capocratians, the
Hypisistarians, the Arians, Paulicians and Goths also accepted
Jesus as a Prophet of God, Even in the modern age there
are a large number of Christian Churches which teach Jesus was
only a Prophet, for example;
The majority of today's Anglican Bishops do not worship Jesus
In the British newspaper the "Daily News" 25/6/84 under the
heading "Shock survey of Anglican Bishops" We read
"More than half of England's Anglican Bishops say that
Christians are not obliged to believe that Jesus Christ was God,
according to a survey published today. The pole of 31 of
England's 39 bishops shows that many of them think that Christ's
miracles, the virgin birth and the resurrection might not have
happened exactly as described in the Bible. Only 11 of the
bishops insisted that Christians must regard Christ as both God
and man, while 19 said it was sufficient to regard Jesus as
'God's supreme agent'"
The Roman Catholic Church no longer believes Christ is the
only single way to attain salvation; "The Church's relationship
with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who
acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are
the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and
together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's
judge on the last day." Vatican's New Catechism 841.
Catholics are the largest group of Christians who also
recently declare that even without Christ, you can be saved;
"This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of
their own, do not know Christ and his Church: Those who, through
no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his
Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and,
moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know
it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may
achieve eternal salvation." Vatican's New Catechism 847.

religious beliefs are based on the [erroneous] idea that Jesus

In conclusion, we know there are many ways to interpret the
Bible, yet one fact remains, Jesus never insisted that we
believe in his blood to be saved nor did Jesus order us to call
him God. Jesus never commanded anyone to worship him as the God
of Abraham did.
Jesus asked us to believe that he was sent by God (John 5:24), which Muslims along with other Christians believe.
Technically, Muslims are the largest group of Christians
(those who believe Christ was sent by God) approximately one and
a half Billion, and the fastest growing Religion.
Kindly accept fellow Monotheists, and let God be the Judge in
the End, treat fellow Monotheists as God would want, as brothers
and sisters. We can learn from each other and grow spiritually
from each other rather than be separated from each other
