In many regards the fact that Christianity is not more violent is the restraints, mores and laws of western civilization. Just because they dont fly airplanes into buildings just means they have been “forced” to be more subtle to champion their invisible guy in the sky. Their brain washing of children is an abominable evil.

Very true.  It’s the western laws of freedom that really have been a death sentence for Christianity.  Of course it’s a very slow process since Christianity was spread by force for over 1,500 years!

But if look at history in the past 2,000 years you’ll see Christians killed more people than Muslims did!

Christians kept on killing and raping and doing forced conversions!

Right, all will be challenged .......  search for the truth makes all fair game. “Ignorance is bliss!” 

Guess they figure they will “rise again” anyway.

Plus, they love to be “persecuted” by the godless, evil demons.

There might be violent Chistians but difference between New Testament and the Qu’rahn is that the New Testament never preaches violence, war towards others or makes note of wars waged by followers of Jesus. And by that I mean actual war not war as metaphor.
Also of the major religions founders/originators its only Muhammed that we for certain know waged wars and murdered people and his successors continued to wage war and murder people.

There is still plenty of violence and cruelty in the New Testament. As was stated earlier, it is just a matter of degree. The violence of the Quran is the same as the violence of the Old Testament. The Muslim extremist are the same as the Christian extremist of a couple hundred years ago. Religion changes slowly as society becomes less violent. That does not justify “brain washing” innocent children into believing that there is an invisible guy in the sky, that the world is 6,000 years old, Virgin Birth, Noahs Ark and other such mythology because dogma maintains New Testament is the literal word of God.

Where in the New Testament does Jesus endorse war, murder, beat ppl up etc?
I can’t recall him beating anyone up or endorsing violence. That stuff is up to God.
The rerence toombaru made earlier to Mark 6:11 is not a command to christians but what God will/might do.
Still waiting on reference to violence endorse by Jesus.

Soooooo…  “Gods ways are not our ways!” (thank God!) The “‘father” can be a genocidal, murdering idiot (like old testament/same god) while the “son” preaches LOVE! Is that correct? As long as good Christians interpret the Bible lovingly, God can do what he wants because he answers to NOBODY! ... “Just because his ways are not ours.”  Ask Job about that love (and his kids, wives and cattle) LOL

I pray for only 2 things daily to “A higher power of my own understanding.”  One…..  to be able to be honest with myself & two…  to have less ego/self and help my fellow humans. If Gods special, omnipotent, violent way is diferent, how do you tell him from Satan?

It was about christianity vs islam this whole thread. New Testament does not preach violence and murder.
New Testament replaces the old, if your not a biblethumping moron (some atheists seem to be biblethumpers as well). The old testament is for the jews and for “historical” reference if your christian. But lots of christians are stupid but so are most humans so no biggie there.

Actually Jesus himself doesn’t say much in the first place. Othe folks speak for him, 2nd and 3rd hand. Which makes sense, since he is mythical. Maybe you should think about how fast you call others morons, as doing so says more about you than them.

You do know that If hes mythical they cant speak for him in 2nd and 3rd hand. Since you know, there is no 1st hand.
Anyway its attributed to Jesus which is the point. He does not endorse or promote violence.

Point well taken .... 2nd and 3rd accounts of other mens God “inspired” literature. There ..... is that better.

Actually I’m not so hung up on Jesus promoting or not promoting violence. It is Christianitys history of that and Yawehs’ liking for it that are troublesome.

Why do we need an imaginary god to love each other, anyway?? Jeezy Peezy!!

Islam is currently worse, no doubt, just behind a couple centuries with their magic book.
