The majority of the Christians follow the Nicene Creed proclaimed in the Nicene conference 300+ years after the death of Jesus.

The majority of the Jews follow Talmud instead of the Torah, the revealed word of God.

Mishnah and Gemarah are similar to Hadith and Sunnah as they are sources outside the scripture written by humans.

This collection of articles is not meant to insult those who chose to believe in one doctrine or another but rather to present educational materials. We may not agree with each other but we do respect your choice and expect the same from you. In some of these articles we have received comments about verses of the Bible taken out of context and used in the wrong place. We urge everyone reading any material on this site or any site to verify that material by themselves (Quran 17:36). As for the books referred to here, we are not promoting any of them. We are only using some of the material because of the interest raised. We have full respect to those who believe different from us. The Quran mandates that "There shall be no compulsion in religion" per verse 2:256.
