Imperial....Read my post before this one. The post just before your last post. I actually agreed with your argument. Also, what I said was that Christians don't think Jesus is "Allah". They think Jesus is one with God "The Father"... yes there's other old testament names for God but none of them are "Allah" ..... So no, Christians don't think Jesus is Allah .... and neither do muslims .... Now as to cultures and countries that practice preteen marriage today.... Even tho I conceded in my last post that in another time marriage and sex with 9 year olds could possibly be something godly....I don't think it can be godly in today's world of internet and satellite TV. Sex in today's world is casual. Sex in today's world is most exciting when it's illicit. No culture is insulated from this. I don't agree with subjecting a 9 year old to that.
