I am new to this message board and want all of you to know that I have the utmost respect for your perspectives even if they differ from mine. I also have a concern and a love for you even though we have not met. This love is made possible through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whom I believe is the Son of God born of a virgin and who lived a perfect sinless life. This perfect sinless life was only possible because He was and is one with God - it is impossible for man to be sinless due to the curse passed on to the children of Adam. Therefore Jesus is God in the form of man and His perfection was the substitute for my imperfection in the form of a sacrifice to God when Christ was crucified. That is what I believe...
Now my question to the followers of Islam is this...
Why is it illegal for those who practice your faith to search for answers in any other faith? If you have no freedom to search for the truth and satisfy your spirit or to prove that what you are being taught is true, then there is a great chance that the God that is restricting you is afraid you will find the real truth. If the God of Islam were indeed the truth then one should have the freedom to search for that truth without it being forced on them...because Allah should have nothing to fear in the truth... Why? Because if the teachings of Islam were indeed true you would ultimately realize this and come back to Islam anyway, but if not you would find the truth.. Why does Allah forbid this?What is He afraid of...losing followers?
I find that the truth is in Christ...the only way, the only truth, and the only life... The truth gives us the freedom to choose our own path - the path that leads to life...or the path that leads to death... Christ came to us in love and offered us life...we can take it or we can walk away... the decision is ours to make - that is love - however, forcing someone to follow is not love.
Jesus said “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Friends the truth has nothing to fear...it will always be true with or without you or me. I encourage you to search for this truth - If the truth were in Islam Im sure I would have found it there...but I found it in Christ. Im convinced you will as well.
