The Bible is the doctrine of Christianity

Reader comment on item: Did the ACLU Disrupt My Talk at American University?
in response to reader comment: Which doctrine is closest to Christianity?

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Jul 23, 2008 at 16:43

First of all, thanks go to Daniel Pipes for allowing posts which bear very little resemblance to his initial aticle, "Did the ACLU Distrupt My Talk at American University?" Dr. Pipes is a gracious host.

Second, it is, in my opinion, profoundly ridiculous to claim the religion of the Muslim and Christianity have "similar doctrine".

From the sacrificial lamb of Abraham's time to the actual substitutionary death of Christ on the cross for the sins of the world, by which through faith we receive eternal life, no other religion in human history is comparable. All religion outside of Christianity, that of the Muslim included, since the dawn of time, is based on works - the works of mankind.

Christianity alone is based on Christ. This is not a "work" done of our effort. It is eternal life through the work accomplished by CHRIST - the Son of God - on the cross.

Muslims DO NOT believe that God had a Son. Muslims DO NOT believe that a "Messiah" is needed for salvation.

Remember, all the apostles of the New Testament were JEWISH. Paul was a Jew, and he wrote most of the New Testament. Thousands of Jews accepted salvation through faith in the future Messiah in the Old Testament - "Abraham believed, and God credited to him as righteousness" - and thousands of Jews accepted salvation through faith after Christ, the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, was sacrificed on the Cross.

In the last 2000 years, thousands more Jews have accepted salvation through faith alone in Christ alone.

And, as the Bible reveals, when Christ returns, he will restore the Land to believing JEWS.
