I never understand this quiz. I've taken it multiple times during my life, deliberately changed answers, my personal ratings on questions.....And every single time I get the same response, with Islam 100% and Orthodox Judaism in 2nd place. My mother and my sister (two VERY different women) took the quiz and got the EXACT same results. Is this just trying to promote certain religions regardless of our answers or something? I fully disagree with Islam, it just is not something I can be a part of, and neither is Orthodox Judaism. :S

I still can't understand how Jesus was born and raised in the middle east native family and have blonde hair and blue eyes. What else did they get wrong.

Because Christ is Latin for "Messiah", which is Hebrew for "Savior". Jesus was not is actual name either. His real name was Yeshua Ben Yosef.(Yeshua is pronounces Joshua in English, Ben means ", son of", and "Yosef" is pronounced "Joseph" in English.) Jesus came from a mistranslation of a mistranslation. "Yeshua is a Hebrew name which has been transliterated into Greek as Iesous (IhsouV: pronounced ee-ay-SUS or ee-ah-ZOOS). The English 'Jesus' comes from the Latin transliteration of the Greek name into the Latin Iesus. Now Greek has no 'y' sound, but the Latin 'i' is both an 'i' and a 'j' (i.e., it can have a consonantal force in front of other vowels), the latter of which is properly pronounced like the English 'y' (which explains the German Jesu, 'YAY-su')That is why we spell Jesus as we do, taking it straight from Latin, but we pronounce the name with a soft 'j' sound because that is what we do in English with the consonantal 'j'."

How could "CHRISTianity" come before Jesus Christ?

Re: "Abortion is prohibited." - many scholars say it's allowed (though most strongly discouraged!) during first 3 months, especially if it's to do with woman's health. Re: "there are some waiting periods and restrictions on multiple remarriage to the same woman." - waiting period is to do with rights of child as child has right to know his lineage, so after divorce it should be clear woman's not pregnant before remarrying as this may lead to confusion over parentage. Rule re remarrying former spouse is valid for both genders; this is to encourage proper deliberation before embarking on big decision. My 2p. In peace, globalnomad

"How does this even make any sense? Jesus preached Christianity not Islam. Christianity is over 2000 years old, Islam cant even compare." We Muslims do not believe Jesus preached Christianity. We believe Jesus told his people to worship the one true God, and that Jesus himself worshiped this one true God. Worshiping one God is the message of Islam; which is why Muslims believe Jesus was (in essence) a Muslim. In other words, we know the religion Christianity came much before Mohammed, but the message of Islam (to submit to the one God) has always been around, and Jesus preached this message just like all the other prophets. Hope that clears it up, peace.

Jesus Christ was a Prophet/Messenger of miraculous birth who performed miracles, ascended to heaven before crucifixion, and will return as a Muslim--but he was not an incarnation of God. How does this even make any sense? Jesus preached Christianity not Islam. Christianity is over 2000 years old, Islam cant even compare.
