God's Holiness cannot be matched by the most sincere efforts of man

Reader comment on item: Islam and Islamism: Faith and Ideology
in response to reader comment: Regarding Judaism and Christianity being defective variants of Islam

Eternal God, all-knowing and all-powerful God, protects his immaculate Purity, his attribute of Holiness, his Righteousness, with his attribute of Justice. God's Righteousness cannot be matched by human effort and yet islam teaches that 'righteous' deeds will be balanced against other deeds by God at a future time of judgement and that the eternal future of a believer is determined by the greater balance. God is Absolute and does not make relative judgements. How arrogant a system of belief , how foolish it is, and how satanic is it's origin. Satan declared "I will make myself equivalent to the Most High." Islam practices the same declaration

I clearly declare to you this day that the Holiness of God is a free gift available to all and is obtained by a single act of faith in Jesus Christ. And further, that the means of this so great Salvation is the plan and work of God, not man. And further still, that God's Justice judged sin at the cross by placing all of man's faults upon the underserving humanity of Jesus Christ who for our sakes became sin for us. God does not forgive based on sincerity. And finally, that the gift of God's Righteousness is given to each believer at the moment of faith is Jesus Christ. God communes only with those who share His Righteousness.

Islam rejects this work and instead seeks to establish it's own brand of holiness; how foolish , how arrogant, how satanic..

Christainity and Islam are polar opposites...
