In the present time, when one listens to some of the TV Evangelists, and reads the New Testament one gets completely different sides of Jesus. Those Evangelists are experts in presenting half the truth about both Jesus and Muhammad. They stress only one side in the most forceful and persuasive way. They raise the slogan “believe in Jesus.” But one should have the right to ask, which Jesus?
The one who said honor your father and mother, Matthew 15:4, or the one who called his mother Woman, John 2:4?
The one who said love your enemies, Matthew 5:44 or the one who said he did not come to give peace on earth, but rather division, Luke 12:51.
The one who said if some one slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him, Matthew 5:39, or the one who went to the temple and drove people out and overturned the tables, Matthew 21:12?
The one who said have peace with one another, Mark 9:50 or the one who said he did not come to bring peace but a sword, Matthew 10:34, and the one who said sell your coat and buy sword, Luke 22:36?
The one who said forgive, and you will be forgiven, Luke 6:37, or the one who said if your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you, Matthew 18:8?
The one who said bless them that curse you, Matthew 5:44, or the one who said he who curses father or mother, let him be put to death, Matthew 15:4?
As a Muslim, I understand both sides, because Jesus, like Muhammad, was both merciful when mercy was required and powerful when power was required. God himself has both heavens and hellfire. Yet half the truth Evangelists never failed to present only the merciful side of Jesus, and only the powerful side of Muhammad.
