  1. Do Shias respect Christians?

    Those are fundamentalists. Some evangelicals can be fundamentalist too, but not most. I think too many Muslims confuse evangelical fundamentalists with Reformation Protestants. They have many beliefs in common but they are not the same. I've never tried to convert or demean a Muslim in my life. Most interactions I've had with Muslims were amicable and respectful.
  2. Do Shias respect Christians?

    Huh? With all due respect brother Jesus did preach the gospel of his Kingdom to the Jews and Gentiles (John 3:1-15; 4:1-42). He did not merely feed and heal people but also preached the gospel message.
  3. philosophers, logic, Aristotle, christian theology

    You cannot prove God's existence with these rationalistic arguments. Many Protestant scholars reject rationalistic proofs for the existence of God. I think in Islam there are also many scholars who reject rationalistic arguments for monotheism.
  4. Christians in general do not attempt to force religion upon those of non-Christian convictions. Aside from fundamentalists in some English-speaking countries, Christians overall have left Muslims to practice their own faith without interference and harrassment. The only time Christians will share about their faith is when a Muslim asks them initially. Thus, do Shias also have the same mentality towards Christians? If a Christian peacefully and respectfully declines to become a Muslim do Shias allow that Christian to remain and practice their Christian faith without interference and harassment? This is an honest question. (I heard that the Ibadis in Oman are the most tolerant Muslims out of all the sects. More so than Twelvers in Iran.)
  5. Evangelical Christians

    There is a difference between evangelical fundamentalist ideology so pervasive in the USA and true historic Protestant Christianity that has roots in the Reformation. You will find that the true Protestant theologians of the earlier times in Europe used exegetical, dogmatic, and philosophical methods similar to famous Shia scholars of the past. The modern-day phenomenon of American "evangelicalism" is merely an ideology that has significantly swerved away from genuine Protestant roots.
  6. Just curious what Shia think about these guys.
  7. Merry ( Happy) Christmas

    Not to put a damper on the festive season but Jesus' actual birthday was somewhere in September. Don't ask me how December 25 got consigned as his birthday.
  8. Jehovah's Witnesses don't celebrate Christmas

    A lot of non-JW mainstream evangelical Christians don't celebrate Christmas either. I'm not one of them but I do know quite a few. Have you guys heard of Saturnalia? A lot of evangelicals believe that Christmas is actually a pagan holiday disguised as a Christian holiday.
  9. [BREAKING] Shooting at Houses of Parliament, UK

    Fair enough. But there a lot of non-Muslims in the West who see Muslims from other denominations not taking bold enough steps to stop these radical Salafis. Most of the non-Muslim populace in the West are skeptical because of almost a too passive (and even permissive) approach by other Muslim sects to do something about this nuisance. I know Shias and other sects are fighting these terrorists in the Middle East valiantly but it doesn't seem to sway non-Muslims in the West just how committed Shias and other denominations are in getting rid of these guys.
  10. [BREAKING] Shooting at Houses of Parliament, UK

    Why don't Shias and other denominations speak up and tell non-Muslims that these modern kharijites have nothing to do with mainstream Islam?
  11. [BREAKING] Shooting at Houses of Parliament, UK

    I hope the general public realizes that these terrorists are not Muslims. Normal Muslims do not go around killing innocent civilians in the name of God.
  12. Liberal 'Christians' have lost their minds

    Ask andres he probably knows.
  13. Is the United States a Christian nation?

    If that is what you really believe then you, sir, are not a real Christian in any way or form.
  14. Is the United States a Christian nation?

    Weren't you the one who said awhile back that homosexual sex is not a sin according to the Bible?
  15. [BREAKING] Quebec Mosque Attacked, 5+ Dead

    The terrorists were shouting "Allah Ackbar!"
