According to the Christian theology, Jesus is the son of God and crucified in order for the sins of the entire humankind forgiven. God in lieu of Jesus death will forgive the sins of the entire humankind provided they believe that Jesus is the son of God and the savior of the entire humankind. Those who do not believe that Jesus is the son of God and the savior of humankind will remain sinful and if they die in this state, they will enter hellfire. This is the belief of all Christians and it is the desire of the pious Christians to invite the entire humanity to embrace Christianity. Many Christians are roaming around the world as missionaries, preaching the doctrines of Christianity. Many pious Christians are willing to leave the comfort of their homes and live in the jungles of Africa and Asia in order to preach Christianity. The vigorous work of many Christian missionaries had caused many tribal and indigenous people of Africa and Asia particularly Indonesia, who have no religion to embrace Christianity. On entering Christianity, a person has to take a bath that will cleanse all his or her sins. Jesus crucified or taken to the heaven. It is true that with the death of Jesus, the sins of those who believe in him completely forgiven.
According to the Muslims, Jesus is still alive and taken to the heaven, to be with God. At the end of the world, Jesus will come down as the disciple of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and not as Prophet. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is the son of God but Jesus is only a Prophet sent to the Jews. Muslims believe that Prophet Jesus is just like a normal ordinary human being. His pious and holy mother who never had any sexual intercourse with any man conceived Prophet Jesus. Prophet Jesus has only a mother and he has no father as other human beings are. God is capable of doing anything and He is capable of making the pious and holy woman, Mariam to conceive Prophet Jesus without a father. Prophet Jesus has no father and he is the only human being in the world conceived by his mother without his mother having sexual intercourse with any man. Prophet Jesus can speak while he was a baby. Muslims believe that God is Allah, there is only one God, and God has no son or daughter.
God is single and alone and is not married. Muslims believe that there is no God except Allah, Allah has no children, and no one is supreme except Allah. Muslims believe that the birth of Jesus to the pious woman of Mariam is the sign of the greatness of Allah. It is abnormal and extraordinary that a woman can ever conceive a baby without having touch by a man. Allah can do everything and anything and when Allah wants to create anything, He has to says only create the things would be created. Allah has made the first human being the Prophet Adam, from clay and Allah made his wife Siti Hawa from one of the ribs of Prophet Adam. Allah made Prophet Adam without a father and mother and Allah made Prophet Jesus without a father. There is no reason to believe that because of Prophet Jesus was born without a father, then to claim a father of Prophet Jesus is Allah. It is a great sin and blasphemy to believe that Allah has a son. Metaphorically, we are all the children of God and God metaphorically regarded Him as the father but not in the real sense of the word. The truth remain that there is no God except Allah and Allah has no son or daughter.
Muslims do not believe that Jesus crucified. Jesus is the Prophet of Allah and Allah loves him. Can Allah let His beloved Prophet crucified? Allah love Prophet Jesus and He would not let Prophet Jesus defeated by his enemies. The enemies of Prophet Jesus are also the enemies of Allah. Allah is great and He can do anything without the help of the creations while the creation cannot do anything without the help of Allah. When the enemies of Jesus with the help of the betrayed deciples of Jesus name Judas want to kill Prophet Jesus, Allah with His great power took Prophet Jesus to the heaven and change the face of Judas to look like the face of Prophet Jesus. Allah makes the enemies of Prophet Jesus to think that Judas was the Prophet Jesus and they crucified him. In reality Prophet Jesus never been crucified by his enemies and the one who is actually being crucified was the betrayed deciples of Prophet Jesus named Judas. Allah saves and protects His lover and it is the rules that remain true at all times until doomsday.
Allah loves Prophet Jesus as He loves all His Prophets and Allah will never let His lover and His Prophets defeated by his enemies. It is illogical that Allah let the one that He loves defeated by Allah and His Prophet enemies. It is against the rule of Allah, the one He love is allowed to be perished. Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God and it is against the rule that a loving Father, the God, will let the enemies of His son to overpower His son when God the Father is the most powerful. Allah easily can make the enemies of His son to perish. Allah the most merciful and compassionate protect and save Prophet Jesus from his enemies and Allah takes Prophet Jesus to heaven. Prophet Jesus will return to the world towards the end of the world as the deciples of Muhammad s.a.w and he continues the work of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, to invite the people to Allah.
