Different Christians tell me different things about Christian beliefs. How do I know which one of them is right?

RonH, you have to look at their reasons and judge for yourself.

Many Christians unwittingly view the Bible as Muslims view the Koran.

I think RonH makes a good point. CS Lewis actually echoes that. His book "Mere Christianity" is intended to cover what are "mere" or "core" concepts held by "most" Christians. The big-picture items, so to speak. There will always be areas of overlap and areas of solo flight but the "mere" zones are there. Don't know what those are for Islam as I'm not well schooled in that faith, although I have a few of the "big picture" items well in hand. As with a Christian, or an Atheist, or a Muslim, much of it is just sitting down and talking with one another and doing a little leg work on the side.

“Finding Water in the Desert” (4 CDs) By: Ravi Zacharias, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.

Discs 2 and 3 are by L.T. Jeyachandran and he covers many of the differences in the varied views of man’s relationship to God. Disc 4 is by Ravi Zacharias and he defines the differences and clarifies many of the fundamental positions in Christianity in relation to Islam.

Thanks for the reference, scbrownlhrm. Very helpful.

What exactly was the point of your question?

That Christians disagree?

OK.

Newsflash.
