The differences between Islam and Christianity

The Great Divide“Alvin J. Schmidt, Ph.D., provides extensive documentation from history, the Koran, and the Bible that there are indeed chasm-wide differences between the two religions – and between the societies where they hold sway. ‘Islam is not just a different religion’, argues Professor Schmidt, ‘but interwoven with it is also a very different culture.’

“In comparison to the Christian West, he shows, Islamic nations throughout history have been culturally sterile, technologically backward, materially impoverished, prone to barbarism and cruelty, and almost perpetually at war not only with their non-Muslim neighbors but with each other.”
