Of IMs and GMs in India is much more than no. Of IMs and GMs in china….In total, India has 69 GMs and 114 IMs, while China has only 48 GMs and 39 IMs, this implies although china is ahead of india by only 33 rating points of top 10 avarage, but India has 21 more GMs and 75 more IMs than china, so overall currently India is no. 3 because of so much more number of IMs and GMs

  20. If you are a christian,you have to read this

    The bible says adam,noah,ishmael pbut are also the sons of god.there are many sons of god in the bible. In the bible it says anyone who is lead by the spirit of god is the son of god,if I am lead by the spirit of god or if I follow the commandments of god i am a son of god,if you do the same you are a son god.with this meaning,jesus pbuh is definitely one of the best sons of does not literally mean he is the son of god.

    The quran says that concept of trinity is not true,and the bible is a huge book which is much bigger than the quran,yet,the word trinity does not even exist in the bible.the bible also says there is one god.

    there is a spirit of truth to arrive,as it is mentioned in gospel of john ch 16 verse 12 to 14,it is prophet cannot be holy spirit because a few verse ago,jesus pbuh says after I leave,the spirit of truth shall arrive.but holy spirit was already there at the time of jesus pbuh.there are other verses also that speaks about prophet muhammad like book of isaiah ch 29 verse 12 song of solomon ch 5 verse 16.

    Now lets come to his crucifixion.the quran clearly says that jesus pbuh did not crucify him but it just appeard so,even bible says the jesus pbuh was not crucified.In the bible,jesus pbuh says(no sign shall be given to you accept the sign of jonah,for as jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the fish,so he shall remain for 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth)if you know the sign of jonah,you should be knowing that jonah(pbuh) was alive in the belly of the jesus pbuh also has to alive to fullfill the sign.otherwise if he dies it would be proved that he is a liar(nauzubillah).so jesus pbuh was alive and he never died and god raised him up alive.

    You say that jesus pbuh died for our sins,1st of all he did not die on the cross as It is proved but even if I agree with you that jesus pbuh died,yet he cannot die for our sins because in book of Ezekiel ch 18 verse 20

    (The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.)

    There is not even a single unequequous or unambiguos statement in the complete bible where jesus pbuh himself says I am god or where he says worship me.Instead,in gospel of john ch number 5 verse number 30,(jesus pbuh says I on my ownself can do nothing,as I hear I judge,and my judgement is just,for I shall seek not my will,but the will of my father)anyone who says not my will but gods will he is a muslim because that is what the word muslim means.and he never claimed divinity.

    In book of acts ch 2 verse 22, it says(Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know." … God publicly endorsed Jesus the Nazarene by doing powerful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know.") this verse proves that he was a normal human and the miracles that were done by him were actually done by god.

    And your bible fails the test of science,theremany things in the bible are scientifically wrong and also has many contradiction.there are many versions of the bible with differences,if it is the word of god then why are there many versions.

    But the quran is in one form,and it does not have any scientific error,illogical statement or contradictions.I challange you to point out such a single verse from the quran.

    And by the way,If a christian means a person who follows the teachings of jesus pbuh,I feel very proud to say I am more christian than most of the christian themselves.the bible says not to have pork,not to drink alchohol,jesus pbuh was circumcised,women should cover their hair etc and most of the muslims obey them but most of the christians does not obey them.

    I being a muslim,I love allah and his prophets(pbut) including jesus pbuh.I respect him I love him I follow him but I dont worshipp him.

    So from the bible,it can be proven that,
    1-jesus pbuh was not god
    2-he was a muslim
    3-he was not the son of god(literally)
    4-he was not crucified(because he has to die to be crucified}
    5-and thus he did not die for our sins.
    6-jesus pbuh was a normal human from the people of israel
    7-prophet muhammad is the last and the final messenger of god
    8-bible is definitely the word of god but the quran is.
    9-we muslims follow jesus pbuh more than most of the christians,so if you accept islam,you are not going to become a non christian.instead you will become a true christian.
    10-concept of trinity is not true.

    So accept islam if you are a true christian.

  21. india's future number 2 in 5 years and possibly number 1 in 8 to 10 years . china isn't producing no where near as many chess prodigies as india . wang hao has just retired .average rating will come down .
