To Lactantius

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Forgiveness and certainty of salvation

Submitted by Hafiz (Sudan), Oct 28, 2006 at 04:11

Dear

You asked me :

" will you please tell me what you are depending on to save you? "

and my answer is: I depend on God's mercy.there is this story about a man who has worshipped God his all life and was very committed to avoiding sins, at the last day he was asked :how do you want to go to Paradise? he answered : with my work and struggle, when they measured his deeds he was certainly in hell, then he was asked again :so he replied :with the mercy of God.

you said:

Muhammad's position basically admits that Allah is not self-sufficient, but is totally dependent upon his creatures, in order to express his attributes and characteristics, proving that Allah is not an all-sufficient deity!

and I don't agree, God is all-sufficient, merciful is his name,mercy is his description.

me too I wish to meet you,cause I really respect people with directions in life and I really enjoyed talking to you, but I'm afraid this is not possible-at least for the mean time-I'm a student at Khartuom Uni.,Sudan.

Salam
