    Hi Muwahid. There are many instances in the Old Testament where the coming of God as the Messiah is alluded to. Jesus fulfilled scores of prophecies. Indeed, statistically speaking, the evidence is overwhelming. We Christians believe Christ is one with God because of His sinless life, His many miracles, and most of all, because He said so. Had He called Himself just a Prophet, that is what we Christians would believe. Had He called Himself just a Teacher, that is what we would believe. But the confession that God took upon our nature in order to save our race has ALWAYS been the cry and confessions of the Christians. Why? Because that is the Gospel Christ came to preach to the world, and those who have ears will listen. Had He not risen from the dead, history would have forgotten about Him long long ago. But because He did rise from the dead, (since death could not hold the very Life-Giving Word of God), because His disciples did see Him ascend into Heaven in glory as King and Judge, because He truly did keep His promise to send down the Holy Spirit of God, these disciples freely gave their lives confessing this fact. So too today, innumerable are the Christians who do the same, even while under intense persecution and discrimination, because it is the same Holy Spirit who strengthens them and sanctifies them. What Islam emphasizes is what it emphasizes, but it does not supplant what God has revealed through the mystery of the Incarnation. For God willed that through the Incarnation, He might take upon Himself our nature, out of divine and immeasurable love, so that He might lift us up as sons and daughters by grace. This is the great paradox which has shaken the world, that God would die for us, so that we might live. This is the God Whom the Christians worship - the God of love and revelation. Only in the Crucifixion, does our fallen nature find redemption. Only in the Resurrection, do we find life after death. Only in the Ascension, do we find salvation and entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Wait for Zippy's next excuse that the Russians hacked into the Express website and is fabricating this story. After all, it's not on the Turkish news, therefore it must be a false report and evil Russian propaganda! lol

    And I'm still trying to figure out how using a lower case 'g' is somehow more respectful and pious in the modern English language than using a capitalized 'G' for the word God. BTW, I am NOT accusing it of being disrespectful, because I don't believe that is orafi's intent, I just find it a bit confusing since it is usually the atheists and agnostics who use lower case 'g' for the word God.

    The Greeks have a passion for life, and more importantly, in sharing it with others! When you come out east to visit me, I will roast one to celebrate.

    For the most pathetic amongst us, Christians make easy targets. Eventually, however, in this fallen world, even the Christians must sometimes form an army.

    And not a single drop of remorse or sadness for the beheading of a child. You really are a sick individual and you should seek help, especially now that you are in the last years of your life.

    Matthew 18:18-20: "Truly I say to ye (Greek plural "you"), that whatever ye (Greek plural "you") may bind on earth shall be binding in Heaven, and whatever ye (Greek plural "you") may unbind on earth shall cease to be binding in Heaven. Again I say to ye (Greek plural "you") that, when two of you should agree on earth on every matter that they may petition, it shall be done to them, by my Father in Heaven. For where there are two or three congregated in my name, there shall I be, amongst them.” Christ gave St. Peter the keys to the Kingdom, but not exclusively to him. He gave them to all the Apostles who were the forefunners of the Bishops. In the above verse, we see that Christ is speaking in the plural. He is no longer addressing Peter exclusively; He is addressing all the Apostles who were present. And according to the first verse of this chapter, these words (the very same words that He said to Peter about binding and unbinding) are now being said to all of His disciples. It was the authority of Bishop, which He was bestowing on ALL of His disciples, and to their successors, the Bishops of the Church. So, this supposed “unique” authority of the Bishop of Rome (Pope) -as Peter’s successor- is unfounded. ALL the Bishops of the Church are successors, to ALL of the Apostles! And the authority to bind and unbind consequently belongs to all of them, and not just one of them.
