ISLAM or CHRISTIANITY – Which Religion Is Better?

ISLAM or CHRISTIANITY – Which Religion Is Better?


Islam and Christianity are two of the world’s biggest religions and while the big similarities among others between them is that they’re both monotheistic religions meaning that they believe in one God there are several differences between them How’s it going everyone I’m Leroy Kenton, and this is another episode of FTD facts now This is part of our which is better episode series like our other episodes in this series We aren’t really concluding which religion is going to be better But rather sharing both religions with you so that you guys can have a clearer understanding And then you as the viewers make your own decision so guys let me know down below in the comment section which religion is better Islam or Christianity Okay, so let’s begin Islam is currently the second largest religion in the world after Christianity But if demographic trends continue Islamic followers are expected to overtake the number of Christian followers by the end of the 21st Century now just to clarify when referring to Christians I’m combining both Protestant Christians and Catholic Christians under the same umbrella in this episode all right now members of Christianity and Islam would have us believe that they are poles apart But their histories begin in exactly the same place in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve Also Islam and Christianity along with the Judaism are known as Abrahamic faiths Meaning that they believe that the biblical prophet abraham was one of the original fathers of the faith in the quran the prophet Abraham was known as a beloved servant of god and because of abraham’s devotion to god God made many of abraham’s descendants prophets to their own people Now the story of the Prophet Abraham being commanded to sacrifice his son is known in both Christianity and Islam in Islam that son is Ishmael and it was through his lineage that Islam was established through the Prophet Muhammad In Christianity the son that was supposed to be sacrificed was Isaac and through the line of Isaac came many prophets like Jacob Joseph Moses David Solomon and of course Jesus Christ Okay, so let’s take a look at the scripture so the holy book in Christianity is the Bible and it’s said to be the inspired Word of God this means different things to different people but basically it means that Christians believe that the books of the Bible were written by many people over a 1,500 year period and those people were guided by the Spirit of God through divine Inspiration these writings came in the form of poetry songs stories and genealogies where we see personal expression of mortals working hand-in-hand with God Now the Koran on the other hand is said to be the Word of God dictated directly to Muhammad and written down word-for-word Without the personal expression of one or many humans now the truest reading of the quran has to be in its original arabic form because translating it into other languages can also take away from the interpretation of the quran So how has the interpretation of the holy books effected their evolution in Christianity has been able to evolve throughout its history it has been able to adopt with scientific technological And economic and moral developments you can see this because there are over 30,000 denominations or branches associated with christianity there are divisions However between the different groups on issues such as the nature of Jesus and the relevancy of the Pope Islam however is very different in that department with the number of Islamic sects Estimated to be less than 100 now due to the nature of the Quran Islam requires that the society adopts to it rather than in Christianity particularly in the New Testament it’s more adaptive to a society and Except for the political separation along the sunni-shia divide is LOM has not particularly shifted and has far less divisions within the religion Now regarding Jesus right so Islam accepts that Jesus of Nazareth Did exist and that he was born of the Virgin Mary? But Islam also believes that Jesus was simply another prophet equal to previous prophets like Abraham and Moses Muslims believe that Muhammad is the final messenger and is superior to all previous prophets that came before him Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God which makes him equal to God and before he came to earth as a man He is accepted as the second person of the Trinity and also called the Word of God who became flesh and lived on this earth His lab doesn’t believe in the idea that Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross They believe that God spared him from it and took it upon himself for Christians the sacrifice that God made by Sacrificing his son for the sins of humanity is the focal point of the entire faith and without that act the world would remain hopeless in sin now I want to talk about the Trinity or the Godhead and it’s a core belief in Christianity that says that there is one God who has three manifestations the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit kind of like a Corporation who may have three founders, but they have different roles under the umbrella of the same corporation I think that analogy makes some sense to kind of understand what’s going on there Muslims however believe that they practice pure monotheism, that is not affected by concepts like the Trinity where God is three but somehow one and the core belief of Islam is that there is no God worthy of worship? but God It’s a simple concept in which worship is directed to Allah alone now in terms of what leads to salvation Islam teaches a salvation based on work to achieve it a Muslim must keep the five pillars of Islam Confessed the Shahada. There is no god, but Allah and Muhammad is His Prophet Muslims have to kneel in prayer towards Mecca five times a day They have to fast during the daylight hours one month of the year which is Ramadan They also need to give money to the poor and make a pilgrimage to Mecca sometime in their lifetime Islam teaches that on the day of judgment people will have their good and evil deeds weighed in the balance So the standard for judgment is the actions that they take whether they’re good or bad Now Christianity teaches that a person is saved by the grace which is a gift from God? through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus and on the note of Salvation and judgment. That’s exactly where I’m gonna end this episode But before I end off this entire video you got to check out our facts about Islam part 1 and part 2 The links to those videos are down below in the video description where I cover a lot of the history and information about Islam that Really surprised you and nearly 1.5 Million people have watched both of those videos the discussion in the debate going on in the comments sections is Unreal and very insightful tens of thousands of people have started to join in from all different religious backgrounds It’s been a great conversation so again the link down below two surprising facts about Islam part 1 & 2 are below but in conclusion now some similarities between the two religions again both Islam and Christianity are Abrahamic monotheistic religions both Islam and Christianity Have practices or duties that are central to the life of their religious community Catholics are expected to take part in as many as seven sacraments as Possible while Muslims are expected to practice all five of the pillars of Islam both Islam And Christianity are based primarily On the lives and teachings of men sent by God be sure to leave any requests on future topics that you want us to do A video about here on FTD facts, and yeah, let me know which religion is better Wow Hey, and he made it to the end of another video Don’t forget to check out our facts about Islam part 1 and 2 we have a bunch of videos on religion on this channel So go ahead check something out.

  3. One of the things I least like about religion is all the rules, mainly the "don'ts" 👎. Look around. Look within. See how…. Men claiming to explain & or represent God have most folks as afraid to Live as we are to die. Admittedly, that used to best describe me, though I no longer fear physical death. The issue for me is that my religious past taught me to be so afraid to (truly) Live that it eventually came to define who I (still) am, in more then just a few ways. Now, as I learn what real life actually is, it's a challenge to get past the what religion stolen from me, which is what Paul tries to explain in Gal 5:1. Those verses which explain the liberating concept of "renewing our mind," turn out to be, totally blowing mine. Amen. I'm SK & I approve this message.

  4. My reply to all African Christian community if only we eliminate these Europeans folks out of this beautiful earth , there comes the new era of optimism and prosperity ! The time of vengeance has come! If we do not say word against these cunning white Aryans there would be whites everywhere and destroy all the mangol, African , Arab and south American community ! There comes a day when only few people like 1 percent from North American people will be dominating us forever! I speak these things because I want to change you, I speak because you are sorrunded by false assumptions and fake stories!
    I speak because I fear nobody! I fear only God, in my sense, is our internal core where our soul lives !
    I speak because even if I get assisanated before I reach my goal, any smart person from another generation will fulfill my beautiful aim listening my voice !
    Please open your eyes today ! For further inquire, plz inbox me on my Facebook "Sanjay das kabir"
    You re requested to visit my Facebook profile as that name and YouTube channel if you want to know the real peripheral concepts about spiritual growth and about salvation and empowerment !!

  8. I want tell u something guys im christian but why muslims love only Allah why not jesus Jesus bild the world to se life in that respect for muslims jesus dont wanna respect…

  9. is religion a program ????? can religion bring people together ? yes….. can religion separate people ? yes….. can a religion be updated ?!?!?!? if so, what is taking so long ? its 2020 ….. which one is more peaceful ??? i heard Buddhism has the least amount of links to War

  10. This is a question to Christians and Muslims:
    You guys believe and obey every single sentence written in your holy books?? Just asking, cuz I'm not either one of them…I just want to know..

  11. There is no such thing as a so called better religion. In fact, Islam doesnt even say it is the best religion or better religion. It is up to the individual to make up his or her choice what religion is better for him or her. There is one rule though that Islam says. If you choose to.keep up the faith as a christian, then follow the Bible. If the Bible says don't eat pork, then don't eat it. It is mentioned in the bible don't eat pork then don't eat the dam pork. Dont be a christian or muslim living in sin. Follow your canon, the holy book that is tied to your religion and steer clear from misguidedness! The pope? Get rid of it. Don't eat pork even if the Western culture adores pork meat.

  12. If you want to know if Jesus is God or if Islam is the truth, do this: Ask Allah to reveal himself and then ask Jesus to reveal himself, then see who answers. This works especially well in the darkest, worst moments of your life when you need the most help. Any human can try this. Try and see for yourself. God does not hide.

  13. There's only one religion and that's is Islam. Islam means to submit yourself totally to God, Almighty. That's why all the prophets were Muslims including Jesus (peace be upon him).
    Christianity is not a religion from God but a twisted form of what Jesus taught to his desciples. No Prophet asked people to worship other than God. Today, most of the Christians are fully fooled by their priests and fathers in the churches.

  14. Hi.Don't mind me. Im just here to watch the war going on all around me. Haven't even watched the video just clicked on it cos i knew the comments section would be a blast! Oh wait, i might of commented in other places so look out for me! Enjoy WW3 and im probs not going to get involved cos no one understands each other anyway and yep thats life guys! Hope u enjoy! NOW KEEP ON SCROLLING!

  15. In Islam all prophets are Equal! Prophet mohammad and jesus are equal to muslims. Because if you deny one you deny all! They are equal cause they had the exact same message.
    There is no God worthy of worship except Allah

  16. This is the dumbest video title of all fucking time saying which religion is better is just a bunch of bullshit it all matters what we believe in and both religions for people are different for Christianity some families go to church and the Islamic people cade from the line Ishmael and the Bible described Ishmael as a “Beast of a Man” and if Islam’s believe that Abraham was the father of Ishmael then who created Abraham and of you go back all the way in the Bible you will end up in Genesis and find that God created Adam and Eve and Adam and Eve are the ancestors of everyone in the world so I believe that Islam is just a bunch of bullshit because the creator of Islam is Ishmael a “Beast of a Man” and the book that Christians read from has hope for the world when the world ends so wouldn’t you rather believe in the book that says you will go to Heaven if you ACCEPT GOD INTO YOUR HEART

  17. Praise be to God, because I am a Muslim and my religion is Islam, the religion of truth, there is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God and a path to heaven

  18. Hinduism is the best religion.
    What is Hinduism?…..

    A Hindu was flying from JFK New York Airport to SFO San Francisco Airport CA to attend a meeting at Monterey, CA.

    An American girl was sitting on the right side, near window seat. It indeed was a long journey – it would take nearly seven hours.

    He was surprised to see the young girl reading a Bible unusual of young Americans. After some time she smiled and we had few acquaintances talk.He told her that I am from India

    Then suddenly the girl asked: 'What's your faith?' 'What?' He didn't understand the question.

    'I mean, what's your religion? Are you a Christian? Or a Muslim?'

    'No!' He replied, 'He am neither Christian nor Muslim'.

    Apparently she appeared shocked to listen to that. 'Then who are you?' “I am a Hindu”, He said.

    She looked at him as if she was seeing a caged animal. She could not understand what He was talking about.

    A common man in Europe or US knows about Christianity and Islam, as they are the leading religions of the world today.

    But a Hindu, what?

    He explained to her – I am born to a Hindu father and Hindu mother. Therefore, I am a Hindu by birth.

    'Who is your prophet?' she asked.

    'We don't have a prophet,' He replied.

    'What's your Holy Book?'

    'We don't have a single Holy Book, but we have hundreds and thousands of philosophical and sacred scriptures,'

    He replied.

    'Oh, come on at least tell me who is your God?'

    'What do you mean by that?'

    'Like we have Jesus and Muslims have Allah – don't you have a God?'

    He thought for a moment. Muslims and Christians believe one God (Male God) who created the world and takes an interest in the humans who inhabit it. Her mind is conditioned with that kind of belief.

    According to her (or anybody who doesn't know about Hinduism), a religion needs to have one Prophet, one Holy book and one God. The mind is so conditioned and rigidly narrowed down to such a notion that anything else is not acceptable. He understood her perception and concept about faith. You can't compare Hinduism with any of the present leading religions where you have to believe in one concept of God.

    He tried to explain to her: 'You can believe in one God and he can be a Hindu. You may believe in multiple deities and still you can be a Hindu. What's more – you may not believe in God at all, still you can be a Hindu. An Atheist can also be a Hindu.'

    This sounded very crazy to her. She couldn't imagine a religion so unorganized, still surviving for thousands of years, even after onslaught from foreign forces.

    'I don't understand but it seems very interesting. Are you religious?'

    What can He tell to this American girl?

    He said: 'I do not go to Temple regularly. I do not make any regular rituals. I have learned some of the rituals in my younger days. I still enjoy doing it sometimes'.

    'Enjoy? Are you not afraid of God?'

    'God is a friend. No- I am not afraid of God. Nobody has made any compulsions on me to perform these rituals regularly.'

    She thought for a while and then asked: 'Have you ever thought of converting to any other religion?'

    'Why should I? Even if I challenge some of the rituals and faith in Hinduism, nobody can convert me from Hinduism. Because, being a Hindu allows me to think independently and objectively, without conditioning. I remain as a Hindu never by force, but choice.' He told her that Hinduism is not a religion, but a set of beliefs and practices. It is not a religion like Christianity or Islam because it is not founded by any one person or does not have an organized controlling body like the Church or the Order, I added. There is no institution or authority..

    'So, you don't believe in God?' she wanted everything in black and white.

    'I didn't say that. I do not discard the divine reality. Our scripture, or Sruthis or Smrithis – Vedas and Upanishads or the Gita – say God might be there or he might not be there. But we pray to that supreme abstract authority (Para Brahma) that is the creator of this universe.'

    'Why can't you believe in one personal God?'

    'We have a concept – abstract – not a personal god. The concept or notion of a personal God, hiding behind the clouds of secrecy, telling us irrational stories through few men whom he sends as messengers, demanding us to worship him or punish us, does not make sense. I don't think that God is as silly as an autocratic emperor who wants others to respect him or fear him.' He told her that such notions are just fancies of less educated human imagination and fallacies, adding that generally ethnic religious practitioners in Hinduism believe in personal Gods. The entry level Hinduism has over-whelming superstitions too. The philosophical side of Hinduism negates all superstitions.

    'Good that you agree God might exist. You told that you pray. What is your prayer then?'

    'Loka Samastha Sukino Bhavantu. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti,'

    लोका समस्ता सुखिनो भवन्तु !!! ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः !!!

    'Funny,' she laughed, 'What does it mean?'

    'May all the beings in all the worlds be happy. Let there be Peace, Peace,and Peace every where.'

    'Hmm ..very interesting. I want to learn more about this religion. It is so democratic, broad-minded and free' she exclaimed.

    'The fact is Hinduism is a religion of the individual, for the individual and by the individual with its roots in the Vedas and the Bhagavad-Gita. It is all about an individual approaching a personal God in an individual way according to his temperament and inner evolution – it is as simple as that.'

    'How does anybody convert to Hinduism?'

    'Nobody can convert you to Hinduism, because it is not a religion, but it is a Culture, a way of leaving life, a set of beliefs and practices. Everything is acceptable in Hinduism because there is no single Authority or Organization either to accept you or to reject you or to oppose you on behalf of Hinduism.'

    He told her – if you look for meaning in life, don't look for it in religions; don't go from one cult to another or from one Guru to the next.

    For a real seeker, He told her, the Bible itself gives guidelines when it says ' Kingdom of God is within you.' I reminded her of Christ's teaching about the love that we have for each other. That is where you can find the meaning of life.

    Loving each and every creation of the God is absolute and real. 'Isavasyam idam sarvam' Isam (the God) is present (inhabits) here everywhere – nothing exists separate from the God, because God is present everywhere. Respect every living being and non-living things as God. That's what Hinduism teaches you.

    Hinduism is referred to as Sanathana Dharma, the eternal faith. It is based on the practice of Dharma, the code of life. The most important aspect of Hinduism is being truthful to oneself. Hinduism has no monopoly on ideas. It is open to all. Hindus believe in one God (not a personal one) expressed in different forms. For them, God is timeless and formless entity.

    Ancestors of today's Hindus believe in eternal truths and cosmic laws and these truths are opened to anyone who seeks them. But there is a section of Hindus who are either superstitious or turned fanatic to make this an organized religion like others. The British coin the word 'Hindu' and considered it as a religion.

    He said: 'Religions have become an MLM (multi-level- marketing) industry that has been trying to expand the market share by conversion. The biggest business in today's world is Spirituality. Hinduism is no exception'

    He said "I am a Hindu primarily because it professes Non-violence – 'Ahimsa Paramo Dharma' means – Non violence is the highest duty. I am a Hindu because it doesn't condition my mind with any faith system.

    A man/woman who changes his/her birth religion to another religion is a fake and does not value his/her morals, culture and values in life.

    Hinduism is the original rather a natural yet a logical and satisfying spiritual, personal and a scientific way of leaving a life..

    Thanks for reading …:)

  19. Islam is just too violent in my honest opinion. I’ve read a few passages of the quran and some of it is far beyond what most would consider peaceful.

  20. All religions teach all well. Islam and Chris, you can be good in games of God. But Buddha's ability is good and can be above the game of God.

  21. Real born again Christians are not religious we have been set free from all that we know our God personally the creator of the universe Jesus Christ God almighty

  22. Moe was a senile pedophile warlord who went too far. Jesus was a peaceful revolutionary who did not go far enough. Fuck religion

  23. The bible says that there is one god. But also christians say Jesus is god. If he is also a god there are two gods. Doesn’t make sense

  24. In respect of Our Brotherhood Religion (Christians)…do.U know Isa (Jesus) Came to Earth to Say That.A last prophet will come…(Muhammad)

  25. I am a Muslim And I like Jesus and I respect all other religions … Because god mentioned jesus as a messenger in the Quran .

  27. Allah means god in Arabic
    Concept of Allah (God )
    Allah is One
    Allah is Independent(Self Sufficient) (independent from body,gender etc)

    Allah is Eternal (Existing Forever)
    Allah is supreme power (who is creator and sustainer of everything)
    Allah(God) is neither created nor have any Children (Jesus(a.s),Muhammad(s a.w),Musa(a.s), Ibrahim (a.s) etc they all are Prophets (messager) of Allah)
    No one equlivalent to Allah (Swt)
