in response to reader comment: The Middle East Conflict And The Enemy

I've taken it upon myself to very carefully and slowly read the Koran. I'm not finished but this is what I've read so far in a nutshell:

God is all knowing and wise. To no other poeple on this earth has he given as much to as he has the Jews; however, with all the clear signs that he has given them, they really screwed it up.(his covenant). The Christians are no better, they say they do not lean on the Jews but they have the same book (the Torah). Both parties very nearly almost didn't even do the very minimum of things that God requires of us to do. Therefore, since we are offspring of Abraham through Ishmael, it's our turn.

Of course, there is much more included in the Koran, like how to cover your sins.

This is the dilemma for the Muslim poeple:

God established his covenant with Abraham who passed it to Isaac. The birthright cannot be claimed by default.

Christ spoke of the offspring of Abraham, and said it is not enough to be just that.

Only the blood of the Lamb of God can cover sins, not works.

The law only exposes sin, and those who live by the law will be judged by the law.

As for anyone who does not understand these words, I welcome them to ask God for an explaination. Be ready, he teaches in extraordinary ways.

As for anyone who doesn't care to know what these words mean or finds them to be folly, be careful; the truth is stranger than logic.

As for any Muslims who read these words, you are not far from salvation; make your salvation complete by coming to the Prince of Peace, the one who has been established to be our King forever, and that is Jesus the son of Mary. The covenant is with the Jews, no effort will succeed to change that no matter how poorly the covenant was carried out; God promised to never break it. At various times, consequences of the Jew's actions may have lead them to lose favor with God; do not take this as a sign that the nation of Islam is now the heir to the promise. As descendants of Abraham, become his seed by kneeling before Christ and you will be amazed at the results.
