I’ve been reading through this forum in particular for a while and I’ve noticed so much tension between Catholics and everyone else. This just might add to that, but I hope not.
For a while I have heard such and such about the prophet Muhammad(sp?). I am aware that Islam teaches that the angel Gabriel appeared to this “prophet” and ordered him to convert people.
A major “what if”…
Could it be possible that the angel Gabriel did indeed speak to this man, but he chose to do something his own way, and thus creating Islam? What if Gabriel was trying to get Muhammad to promote the Word of God and he chose to purposely ignore it and spark a new religion?
While these thoughts are completely random, and possible insane, I was wondering if anyone else out there thought the same.
