No. Christians not only follow the teachings of Jesus Christ but they also worship him as God incarnate as part of a Trinitarian God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit, because Christians believe that Jesus' claims to be God incarnate are true, and are born out in his miracles, his death, his resurrecti…on from death, his ascension and the coming of the Holy Spirit as a result. Christians regard scripture as the Bible - the Old Testament being the Hebrew Bible before Christ, and the New Testament which tells of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the early Christian Church. Moslems still worship God (whom they call Allah) but reject the idea of the Trinity. They accept Jesus as a prophet as they (and Christians) would accept Moses and Elijah as prophets (as examples), but they do not regard him as divine. Instead they follow the teachings of another prophet Mohammed, whom they believe is the most important of all prophets who have ever lived. Whilst Muslims do not reject the Bible (they still trace their roots, like Christians and Jews, back to Abraham), they have as their scripture the Koran (Q'ran) which sets out clearly Muslim doctrine and theology. As there are so many differences between Islam and Christianity they can therefore be regarded as two separate religions, despite the common ancestry. As far as personal faith and behaviour are concerned there are many similarities between Islam and Christianity; it is in the main doctrines, however, of just who Jesus is , where the main differences lie.

Hardly likely, seeing that most Muslims that were in India left the country during the partition in 1947 that set up Pakistan as a Muslim state.

Yeah. Quite a lot of the population of the planet is non-christian. Get over yourself people. Ure not the only religion out there.
There have been clashes between the two faiths shortly after thestart of Islam in the 7th Century AD. However, presently as another'caliphate' is attempting to start in the Middle East, Christianswho have lived in the lands in question - having had roots theresince the 1st Century AD long before the… origins of Islam - are nowbeing given 3 choices: convert to Islam; remain but pay a price forthis privilege with perhaps some persecution, or simply leave thearea.

Which part of the world has Muslims what part of the world has christians what part of the world has Jews what part of the world has hindus what part of the world has Buddhist?
Muslims are mostly from the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, and Indonesia. Christians are found mostly in the West, as in Europe, the Americas, and Australia (though there are many Christians in Africa as a very much growing group), Jews because of the diaspora are located around the globe and are …very spread out but Israel is in the Middle East (which is the Jewish homeland and only Jewish country) and the United States up until the last few years had the largest Jewish population in the world and is now a close second to Israel. Hindus are mostly constituted in India, and most Buddhists are in East Asia as well. Though all of these religions are global and have believers scattered across the world. (MORE)

I have seen an estimate which predicts 2020. Answer: The whole Muslim population conspiracy theory relates to bad science and poor data being used to support fear mongering. Typical is a YouTube video that claimed that Europe will be Muslim (Islamified) in just a few decades. Most of the countr…ies do not even collect the data through censuses that the claims are said to be based on. It is not even good science. As an example a lot of the claims such as Moslem women having an average of 8.1 children (opposing this the average "Christian" birthrate of 1.8) are unsupported, or that the Dutch Muslim community has half of the newborns even though they represent 5% of the population (14 times more fecund than the non-Moslem rate). The video claims inflated representation of Moslems in many countries, claims to report on government predictions of population shifts that have never been made. As a consequence the conclusion that there will be a wholesale shift of populations from one group to another is unsupported, and the question "When will Muslim population surpass Christian population?" must be answered with "Not in any conceivable future" (MORE)
yes, because Islam welcomes every one into the religion. they just have to read by heart Kalima-e-Tayaba
This is actually incorrect. There are roughly 2.1 billionChristians and 1.6 billion Muslims. As a result, there are moreChristians than Muslims.
Estimates vary a great deal, not least because of the huge growth in Christianity in the far East (like China) where Christians are still persecuted and so official numbers are difficult to obtain because of the secrecy involved in being a Christian there. However estimates range from around 2.1 bi…llion to 2.5 billion, or over a third of the world's population. (MORE)
It is about 30% of the earth. But if you had to count every single Christian, all I can say is a lot of people. I hope the Christian population will get higher and higher

The crusades raised the Christian population because people feared they would be killed if they were not Christian, Jewish people were murdered and went in to hiding but were tolerated in some countries and Muslims were forced to Asia there declining Muslim population.
NO! although Christians and Muslims are similar in many ways, there are come very big differences! like Christians believe Jesus was the son of god, but Muslims believe he has a Prophet of god! Answer If you mean 'can a person born a Muslim become a Christian if he converts' then the answer is,… of course, 'yes'. Many Muslims become Chriistians every day as they move away from Islam and embrace Jesus Christ as their Saviour. However, this tends only to happen a lot in free countries as many Islamic states ban Christian activities, and in some conversion to Christianity carries heavy legal punishment - even death - under Shariah Law.

Why do Muslims say they do not hate Christians when they kill them all over the world and then celebrate it?
You are referring to two different groups of people. Some Muslims hate Christians. They kill them all over the world and then celebrate it. Other Muslims would never dream of killing anyone. Those are the Muslims who say they do not hate Christians - because they don't.
Of the three choices, Islam is the youngest, having been born from its predecessors in the 6th century ce. Christianism was - again born from its predecessors - about six centuries before that, give or take a few decades depending on who is talking. Hinduism, a religion defined as that culture of fa…ith that originates in India, is as old as India itself. Again, depending on whom you talk to, that could be between four and twelve-millennium ago. Hinduism gave rise to Jainism and Buddhism about the 6th Century bce. There might be a dispute over who influences whom with regards to ZarathUshtraism, since his rebellion grows from a kindred culture of faith. (MORE)
Do the Pope and Vatican's intent to convert Indian Hindus to Christianity threaten the Muslim World?
never ever. Christians; per faith; are closer to Muslims than Hindus as both Muslims and Christians worship same God and have many common beliefs. In the historical ancient wars between the Byzantines (Christians) and the Pershians, Muslims were very sad and upset when the Byzantines were defeated a…nd Sone verses of Quran are revealed to tell Muslims that the Byzantines will win in less than 10 years and it happened. Quran says (meaning English translation): . The Byzantines have been defeated (2) In the nearest land. But they, after their defeat, will overcome. (3) Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice (4) In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. (30:2-5). On other occasion Quran says: On other occasion Quran says: . You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers (Muslims) [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers (Muslims) those who say, "We are Christians." That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant. (5:82). Catholic Answer The Holy Father (the Pope) is Our Blessed Lord's Vicar on earth. As such he is here to lead Christians to heaven. The Vatican is only there to carry out his wishes. Individual Christians are responsible to preach the Good News to everyone they meet, the responsibility of convert non-Christians thus is in their hands, on the Holy Father's. Secondly, the Church is not a military organization, as Our Blessed Lord said, "My kingdom is not of this world." Christians are not supposed to "threaten" anyone!. (MORE)
Out of 5 people of the world, one is Muslim. This ratio amply tells about the population density of the Muslim world.

A terrorist has no religion. Anybody who takes or plans to take the life of innocent people revolts against the authority of Almighty God. Islam does not permit it. All human beings are created by Almighty God and He loves them all. This is the basic teaching of Islam. A person who goes against it i…s NOT a Muslim. Islam demands Complete and Unconditional Surrender to the will of Almighty God. Thus anybody who rises in revolt to the will of Almighty Allah is not a Muslim. A terrorist may put on the label of Christian, Jew, Hindu or Muslim he is none of them. He is just a terrorist-Rebel against Almighty God. Humans are the family of Almighty. (MORE)

Why are religious differences emphasized to the point that Muslims and Jews Muslims and Christians and Christians and Jews are clashing in different parts of the world?
Answer The clashes between these groups at this point in time aretypically not based on theological differences. For example, theviolence in Egypt towards the Coptic Christians by some Muslims inEgypt does not stem from the fact that Islam holds the idea thatJesus is God to be blasphemous. The viol…ence typically stems fromeach religious group using their religious groups as ethnicidenitifiers. The religious conflicts are more akin to ethnicconflicts than theological ones. Like other ethnic conflicts, thereason for the fighting is land or resources that one group has andthe other group wants or vice versa. Discussion of Religious Groups as EthnicIdentifiers. In most Arab states with large minorities, the conflicts betweenthese groups break out along religious lines since the religionsserve as good ethnic identifiers. This means that the groups wouldsee themselves as a distinct entities using the religions as cleandividers. Both Maronites, Sunni Muslims, and Shiite Muslims speakthe same language, eat the same foods, and live in mixedcommunities and mixed provinces. However, the Lebanese Civil Warand its continuing aftermath pitted Maronite Christians againstSunni Muslims against Shiite Muslims. The Iraqi Insurgency pitted aunified government with Kurdish Peshmerga allies against ShiiteExtremists and Sunni Extremists. These groups do not attack eachother on account of their religious differences, but use thedifferent religions to identify what part of society or which groupeach person belongs to. Oddly, this issue is not part of theIsraeli-Palestinian Conflict. While most Palestinian combatants areSunni Muslim and most Israeli combatants are Jewish, the IsraeliArmy and general populace include a large variety of non-Jewishmembers and Palestine still retains a Christian minority. Thiskeeps the primary confrontational identities national and notreligious as ethnic identifiers. (MORE)
