To some degree, I could see why many people may be attracted toward Islam. It really bridges the gap between the strict legalism of Orthodox Judaism and the overt mysticism and transcendent nature of Christianity that often leaves people frustrated. For me, personally, my problem with Christianity is the whole other-wordly emphasis. Quite frankly, I'm sick of being fed seemingly false promises about a future (that may never come) and stupid existential cop-outs for the problems in our world. The problem of suffering really makes no sense from any Abrahamic religion's perspective tbh, but I find Christianity's approach to it the most confusing. I think now that my main criticism with Islam is that like all religions, I don't think I can bring myself to worship a God who didn't become man. I simply see no reason to break my back for some detached authoritarian figure in the sky who does nothing about our suffering and yet expects that I worship Him. The Incarnation personally to me is the ONLY thing that makes God worth worshipping. I don't buy into all those silly "He's greater than us, He deserves worship by default" or "But look at the beauty of the world! He deserves worship!" arguments that many mainstream Christian and Muslim apologists make. I could care less about a God who knows nothing about our condition. If He wants my worship then He has to earn it and come down to my level. And I think that's really the only reason I choose Christianity over other religions, no matter how contradictory, confusing, and difficult it is.
