Islam Paper Since 9/11/2001 we as Christians, and as Americans, have come to realize the impact of Islam on a personal level. Although, 9/11 was perpetrated by radical Muslims carrying out a Jihad (holy war) against the America, we as Christians must not judge all Muslims based on what transpired that day back in September 2001. Jesus said in Luke 6:37, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” As Jesus proclaimed, we as Christians must find a way to forgive thy enemy, even if they are of Islamic faith.
But in a Christian nation, as our Founders would have defined it, the principles and institutional foundations are Biblically based and the people in general share a Biblical world-view. Before America was America Christopher Columbus' commission was given to set out and find a new world. Though this order was given from King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella of Spain according to Columbus’ personal log, his purpose in seeking undiscovered worlds was to “bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the heathens. …. It was the Lord who put into my mind … that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies … I am the most unworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely … No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Saviour, if it is just and if the intention is purely for His holy service.” Columbus, being a Catholic, was Protestant and felt obligated to bring God to the world.
He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, which ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord”. Islam and Christianity take a monotheistic (belief in one GOD) approach when it comes to religion. Muslims recognize Allah as the Creator and Christians recognize GOD as the Creator. Both religions believe that human beings have the ability (free will) to choose between good and evil. Another eye opener for me is that Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary and at the end of the world, Jesus Christ will come again.
Paul was one of the first delegates to oppose the elders of the church in Jerusalem, and the observance of the Mosaic Law, as long as it did not interfere with the liberty of the Gentiles. Paul believed that salvation is available to all humanity, and salvation was won by Christ’s death and resurrection and given as a pure gift, along with many other things. Paul was a missionary, working to convert gentiles and Jews to Christianity in places where it was not widely practiced. He travelled on four major journeys, spreading the message of Christ. On his journey, Paul also set up Churches with leaders in many major towns.

Catholics believe that only good works from people was the only way to get to salvation, but Luther was trying to make people know that you do not need to pay to be saved you just got to follow God’s rules, be good, and follow Jesus´ footsteps. Luther translated the New Testament so that people could learn about Jesus and his teachings. The church back then made Catholics fear God, they did this to take advantage of Catholics and make them pay money to the church. Luther always said that Go was never going to leave us and that he was going to be always with us. He also preached that when the time was right you will go to eternal salvation and not doing by paying.
Winthrop formed the Massachusetts Bay joint stock company and governed the colony. For those seeking change from corrupt England, this charter became a chance to establish a “true Christian commonwealth” (Breen 35). They sought to create a society where “the will of God would be observed in every detail” (Morgan 69) because they felt as though England failed them by deviating from Gods’ word. Ultimately the Puritans wanted to emphasize that the Bible was the supreme law of the land as well as the only source of instructions to live by as a Christian. They wanted to establish the New World as a region free of sin.
