Self-Sacrifice

The Christian’s “Jihad” (or self-struggle):

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.- Romans 12:1 (ESV)

Notice that this sacrifice is a living one, rather than a dead one:

Who can say even one word against this true jihad? House and young men must be sacrificed. Throats must be slit and skulls must be shattered. This is the path to victory.- Saudi Cleric ‘Aed Al-Qami

“Fundamentalist” Christianity and “fundamentalist” Islam are not similar: they are systematically poles apart. Thinking otherwise is shallow analysis.
