"Stand forth" - For Christianity to Become Complete

For Christianity to Become Complete

By what can Christianity be measured in terms of its truthfulness?

We may judge it by the attitudes of followers of the religion toward their enemies or Judaists.  Christ Jesus did not accuse Judaists as a whole.  He did not curse them.  Christ Jesus just condemned false Judaists who did not believe in God.

So, followers of Christ Jesus have no reason to attack and oppress Judaists, but actually they have done it all through the long history of Christianity.

While followers of Christianity, the religions that put its base on teaching by Christ Jesus, discriminate against Judaists or attack and oppress them, the religion Christianity itself is not complete, though the Gospels might be holy.

In this context, as the Holocaust in the 20th century showed, Christianity was not complete till the 20th century.  If we see, for example, that a Judaist becomes US president, we may think that Christianity has come close to its completion.

But what about relationship of Christians with Muslims?  Christ Jesus told that after He was ascending to Heaven, God would send a holy spirit or Christ Jesus again to this world.  In this context, Islam could be the holy spirit that Christ Jesus promised.  

So, there is a possibility that Islam was given to the mankind to complement Christianity that could not be complete alone since followers of Christianity started to discriminate against Judaists at the time of the emergence of Islam.

Maybe, for Christianity to become complete, it needed Islam.  But, to date there have been no such efforts of Christians as trying to learn lessons from Islam to make Christianity complete.

At least, there is one thing clear that Christians should learn from Islam: Women should hide their hair by wearing hijabs.  Indeed, women living in the Westernized and Christian-culture influenced world have come to look indecent with too much exposure of their bodies in the public.  Only Christian nuns in uniform look decent in this context.  But such temptation is a means for Satan to capture men and make them his slaves.

For Christianity to become complete, its followers should stop discriminating Judaists and lean from Islam.
