Muhammad The Sinner and where sure and certain salvation is found
Submitted by Lactantius Jr. (United Kingdom), Oct 21, 2006 at 09:23
Painful as this may be to you to acknowledge, Muhammad was a sinner, take him at his word, he was a sinner and he knew it. This has been covered in many of my postings on Dr Pipes' site, demonstrating from the Qur'an and Sahi Hadith, that Muhammad was indeed a sinner, who knew the depth and seriousness of his sin, and the paper I now quote, authored by James Arlandson, brings all the information together, demonstrating from the Islamic source documents, that Muhammad was a sinner and knew he was, comparing and contrasting Muhammad's sinfullness with Jesus sinlessness, documented in the New Testament documents.
Were Jesus and Muhammad sinless?
The Bible and the Qur'an both agree Hafiz, that only Jesus was absolutely sinless, making Him unique amongst men, and uniquely qualified to be the sinners all-sufficient Saviour.
Here is what the New Testament says about human beings' massive problem with sin, and tells us the only way out of it:-
"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard." Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord."
"If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness."
1 John 1:8-9
We're all in the same sinking boat Muhammad was in, Hafiz, we're sinners and we need a Saviour, and His Name is Jesus Christ, who is:-
"Able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through Him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf."
We're not worth it Hafiz, we don't deserve it, and we can't earn it, as the Bible says, it's a free gift from the God Who loves us so much, He sent our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to pay the price to put us right with God, for anyone who will accept the gift, do you want it Hafiz? because:-
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."
He's our only hope Hafiz, a sure and certain hope, just take God at His Word, that:-
"Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved." Acts 2:21
These are all plain, plain words Hafiz, do you want this sure and certain hope of Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ? what's holding you back from the God Who says:-
"At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you. Indeed, the 'right time' is now. Today is the day of salvation."
2 Corinthians 6:2
Please take the hand of the God Who "doesn't want anyone to perish" 2 Peter 3:9 and secure your eternal destiny right now Hafiz.
With kind regards and very best wishes
