In the response to my writing there is found the reason I would not normally engage is in such discussion, because there is now misinterpretation of this reader's intent. It was not intended to dissuade the reader ahmadzafire from his beliefs, for he must follow his own conscience in determining his own destiny. The distinction that was to be made and is reiterated here is if one does not desire to follow Christ throughout life, it should not be by excuse in misunderstanding what true Christianity really is.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is that He entered into this world sinless so that when He was put to death on the cross, His sinless death paid for the sins of all who believe, being our redemption to take us from spiritual death to eternal life in the power of His Holy Name. This He did in obedience to the Almighty God, our Father in heaven, out of His grace, mercy and love, something this world so desperately needs. Is this not so? In truth, it is so.

This reader believes it is so and it is on this point only this reader stands. The rest may be debated, but it all comes to the same conclusion, that one would need to ask, to pray that Jesus Christ forgive them of their sins and ask Him into their hearts to really understand. It is the only way to begin to comprehend true Christianity. Look around, and into one's own heart, and see if this is not the real battle that is being fought.

The real issue between world and Christ is His love and whether or not this world would live in the light of His love. Take away the true love of Jesus Christ and the world will fight itself into its own destruction, just as it is doing now. Look and see if this is not the real battle, globally and individually. One can deny it, but never survive it. Hence the real need for Jesus Christ and His love.
