this topic is not related to existing or proving God and assumed God exist.
existing God is discussed in other topics like:

is there any connection between two beliefs?
Christians worship Jesus Christ as God our creator.
Quran validate the Bible to some extent
does the Bible validate the Quran?
are the Muslim God & the Christian God are the same?
Islams says extinction of human existed before Adam&Eve.
does Some Christians also believe this?
is there any deviation in original Bible? (the Bible at time of prophet)
is there any deviation in original Koran?(the Koran at time of prophet)
such beliefs are true or deviation?:
God cannot look on sin, neither can there be sin in heaven.
Sin causes death.
Death entered the world because of Adam & Eve, who exercised their right to chose, & chose to sin.
Mankind has chosen to sin ever since.
There is only one way that sin could be neutralized; if a sinless eternal being gave himself up to death. So God came to earth in the person of Jesus & paid the price, so that all who believe are free from sin & death.
Islam believes there is no savior unless the person's good deeds and prophets only can have some help to God forgive some shortcoming of true believers.
Islam believes God is not human nor material and created all materials.
does Christians believe God is a human?

    May 28 2011: The Quran seems to be a Syro-Aramaic interpretation of Christianity. In any case Christian faith, just as Islam, has a philosophical basis. Taking some distance from the 'bookish beliefs' that have been emerging, we can see how in previous times people were often more wise with religion. Religion can never be bigger than God / Allah himself, for instance - it's that simple. God has to be bigger than the history of religion. But religion is valuable too, for the same reason. Religious thought is where the big questions of humanity have always been asked. Not the answers, but the questions are the beginning of the quest.

      You must be a comedian to say "the Quran seems to be a Syro-Aramaic interpretation of Christianity".. . I hope you know there is a Syro-Aramaic reading of the Koran....
      • Jun 11 2011: I do not know the meaning of Syro-Aramaic.

        Jul 16 2011: His point is exactly that. The Koran is a syro-aramaic interpretation both culturally and philosophically of ideals found withing the writing of Christ but crafted to the purposes of the culture and locale of its writings.
