A Common Word in Cross and Crescent: Christians and Muslims on Loving in Nigeria

  • PE Nmah


The paper assesses a common word in both cross and crescent of Christianity and Islam as regards love of God and love of neighbour. The paper sought to find out the extent to which the Nigerian Christians and Muslims have satisfied and fulfilled the two greatest commandments of their respective sacred texts. Findings showed that they both have failed the commandments as evident by past and recent religious extremism, hatred, jealousy, rivalry, corruption, unemployment, moral decadence, spiritual ignorance, academic barrenness, and economic bankruptcy that are endemic diseases prevalent in Nigerian society. Recommendations in the way of using the Islamic and Christian sacred texts and scientific strategies capable of improving the situation were offered.
