Fair and love

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Khalis (Malaysia), Dec 13, 2006 at 15:41

It will never make any sense to me, when this two things joint together with christian. Christians preach that Jesus will save everyone from sin. What does that mean ? Is sin a bully, demon or a monster ? I mean, you save somebody from a bad guy, right ? Is sin a bad guy ? Certainly not. A person that have sin is the bad guy. A very bad guy have a lot of sin. A bad guy, lies, steals, kill, rape, and bully other people around. In other words, christianity preaches that bad guys will be saved because of gods love.

Where is fairness, in christianity ? I think , this is too much to take. A bad guy kills your brother for fun will be saved by Jesus just by admitting that he is sinful ? Love and fairness are two different things. You love a person but fairness is still necessary. In Islam , we believed that you will get what you work for. Allah will give it to you, either now or later in judgement day. You will be rewarded and punished depending on your doing. Allah will love a good person more. No hope for bad people ?

We believe that Allah is full of forgiveness but at the same time fair. In Islam , we believe that if we make a sin to Allah like being irrespective and not following orders is between that person and Allah. We can remind but not judged him or her to be condemned to hell. However, a sin between human is another thing and can only be settled between the two.

For example, if you steal a car you will have to pay back to the person on the day of judgement but you will not get punished if that person forgives you . This still applies even though a religious leader steals a car from a prostitute. The prostitute have every right over the religous leader. I think, this is clear cut fairness. How about love ? Isn't forgiving an example of love ? Love is a feeling. Fairness is reality. They go hand in hand . Everyone will be judged to the speck of dust of their doing in the judgement day is what Islam preach. However, christians preach that Jesus died to save mankind from their sins out of love. I think, christianity is trying to teach a person to love someone blindly. This is the fundamentals in christians and does not make any sense at all.

Jesus was crucified for the sins of mankind. Why do you sacrifice yourself to protect the bad guys ? What do you sacrifice for people ? I think, you should sacrifice yourself for a good cause. Sacrifice your money for poor people, sacrifice your time for your family, sacrifice your life to protect your country from harm. Sacrifices are done to make things better and for something very valuable. I am talking common sense . Is it sensible to sacrifice yourself to protect a criminal ? I agree that the idea is fantastic, but it did not touch reality at all.
