He is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Some of the early Christians were Unitarians. Even today, there are Christian Unitarian churches that do not accept the Trinity. While in Islam, a Trinity is totally rejected. Jesus is neither God, nor Son of God in the literal sense.
Jesus was a human prophet and not divine. These prophets were human beings, not divine, and should not be worshipped directly or indirectly. So there is nothing special or divine about Jesus being called son of God and therefore Jesus should not be worshipped. However, it is unacceptable to believe that God is the biological father of Jesus meaning that God had sex with Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Angels are created by God; therefore, they are not divine and should not be worshipped. The Quran says Jesus did not die on the cross, but God made it appear that way to people.

In this Council of Nicea, Church leaders from around the world debated and finally decided on what should and what should not be included in the Bible. There were different views expressed in the Council; however, the views of the those who were most powerful won.
As a result, lots of Gospels were thrown away. For Christianity to be adopted by the Roman Empire as its official religion, it had to succumb to the desires of the Romans who wanted to incorporate their own pagan religious beliefs and myths into Christianity. The integrity of the message brought by Jesus from God was compromised to appease the Roman Empire.
Christianity has evolved into a cult that has deviated significantly from the true teachings of Jesus by: A holy scripture must be in the form and content intended, inspired, or revealed by God, not created by human beings. Many Christians insist that Muslims do not worship the same God of Christianity.Top ten reasons why Islam is NOT the religion of peace.
