    To have a Christian or Muslim stand before you and openly admit, as an adult, that they believe in an imaginary person and talk to “him” every day and expect “him” to answer their prayers is galling. That is why it gets ugly. In any other context such a person would be institutionalized.

    God is great and the only way to the Father is through the Son if you cant comprehend pray for wisdom The problem the world has is that we do not have a king we need Gods representitive on earth we need the root of David we need the Lion of the Tribe we need faith – to believe in something we cant see we need love – the spirit that binds us we need Jesus – the answer and remember you can not petition the lord in prayer

    Muslims also say: “God is great” (every few seconds).
    Yet, their god has no son! If the only way to god is through his son, what are Muslims supposed to do?
