Arguments from silence on a path to Islam: A quick critique

I came across some comments on the Answering Christianity Facebook page where a woman had embraced Islam for a number of reasons. I will just simply look at the points made and try to respond to them accordingly:

"1. Jesus christ when he was alive he never practice christianity, he only bring islam"

First of all, Where in the Bible does Jesus bring Islam to the earth and second of all, so what? Christianity follows the teachings of Jesus. Define what you mean that he didn't practice Christianity?

"2. Jesus was never mention anything like christian when he was alive. But in Al-qur'an GOD called us muslim like Qur'an 3:102"
Doesn't matter, his followers are called "Christians" in the New Testament (Acts 11:26, 1 Peter 4:16). Just because Jesus didn't mention the word Christian, it doesn't render the term false.

"3. Jesus christ was never go to church when he was alive and there is no single verse in the bible that say go to church. But in Al-qur'an Allah says we should go to "jummuah"
He doesn't have to, The principle laid down by his followers is meeting in fellowship, be it in a church building or a house. So long as believers meet together and worship Jesus together, that's all that matters. See the following verse in Hebrews 10:
"25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

"4. There is no single verse in the bible where the word "BIBLE" is mention. But in Al-qur'an there was so many places where GOD mention Al- qur'an, like qur'an 4:82"
If this lady is arguing this proves the Quran to be true, This is another superficial argument that I have seen been used by others. Just because the word Bible is not in the Bible, that doesn't mean the Bible is false and likewise, Just because the word Quran appears in the Quran, that doesn't mean it's inspired.

The next lot of points shall be looked at in another paper.
