What I admire about Muslim Faith & Scriptures why I am Christian

I have intended to write this entry for some time. I realized that there is one characteristic of the Muslim faith that I absolutely admire. That is their willingness to defend their faith, not back down, and not be apologetic or silent about it. On the other hand, many so-called Christians are merely churched and do not know what they believe or why they believe it, and do not stand up for their faith in any way. And Jews are worst than that--they cower and pretend to have no faith when challenged--to 'blend in' with the secular world so as to be unnoticeable. 

I am Christian because I am a believer in JESUS, whose title was Messiah, or Christ meaning the anointed one.  JESUS was born on the earth as fully divine and fully human male. He is GOD Incarnate--GOD in the flesh. I believe HIS life and His testimony of GOD the FATHER in heaven to be true, and I was baptised in a river and was lowered into the river as if into a grave and then lifted up again to a new life in the Spirit of GOD. That is what baptism means --being spiritually buried to the old sinful life and resurrected to a new life GOD's way.  It is a symbolic act of choosing to live for GOD. JESUS Himself was baptised and set the example.

JESUS said, 'go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptised shall be saved; but he that believeth not, shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: in MY NAME, shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues [not in the vulgar, godless, secular language they did as sinners] ; they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thiing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. And after THE LORD {JESUS} had spoken unto them, HE was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of GOD."  Mark 16: 15-19, King James Holy Bible.

These scriptures are why Christians go into all nations of the world and teach the gospel--because THE LORD commanded that we should do that.

The New Testament is the written record of JESUS ' time on the earth. IF you want to know more about JESUS, then read it entirely beginning with the book of Matthew and read it through as you would read any other book, through to Revelations the final chapter that tells of what heaven will be like and who will be in heaven.
