    If Obama was in a Christian church for 20 years, how could he be of Muslim faith?

    Most people would be very surprised to learn how similar Christianity and Islam are, according to their respective Tomes. The Koran and the Old Testament overlap in many areas, to the point that Muslims also revere Jesus Christ as an important prophet, just not the son of God, which interestingly, many Christians did not either until many centuries after his death, by the vote of a Papal council.

    When I was in Riyadh, I asked our Saudi cultural liason officer why they were so opposed to Christ, to the point we could not display Christmas decorations during that time of year. He told me it had nothing to do with Christ, but rather the materialistic and commercial influence Americans have allowed to dominate the holidays. That is when he pointed out the respect Muslims have for Christ, and their belief in his prophecy. That one threw me for a loop.

    The first century church new beyond a shadow of any doubt that JC was the son of God. This carried on through the first century until the game of telephone was invented not many decades after.
    Jewdeans and christians have alot in common,also.. They both believe in the son of God only the Judeans are still waiting for him to come for the first time.

    Pete,

    While the "unitarians" -- those believing that Jesus was a great prophet with a special relation to God, but not himself more than a man -- lost the vote at the Council of Nicaea, they were still a non-tirivial part of the Christian community. The majority decided to declare their beliefs to be heresy and proceeded to hound them into virtual extinction. However, this view enjoyed a revival during the 16th and 17th centuries and became a major part of the religious landscape that shaped our own revolution in the 18th century.
