in response to reader comment: Plato: Read the last message of God and Forget other books

After missing a few days, this reader comes back to read:

"Besides, the books you mentioned are NOT from God (Allah) rather they are man-made (ie Reg Veda). By reading them you can clearly tell they are NOT from God, as the Quran is for example."

"There are NO instructions in those books about Life, Hereafter, Heavens, Hell, Angles, Prophets, Destiny , Prayers, etc"

Wait a minute. That the Quran is purported to have the only answers to Life, Hereafter, Heavens, Hell, Angles, Prophets, Destiny , Prayers, etc., is a very convenient way to dismiss the Hebrew – Christian Holy Scriptures. No matter how one wants to debate the subject, the original Hebrew Scriptures predate the Islamic works by several centuries, and some parts even further than the other references mentioned.

Most importantly, the place held by the Person of Jesus Christ as He revealed the truth of it all sets a higher standard than any man or woman can discern, and it requires full fellowship with Jesus Christ through His Holy Spirit to gain that understanding, and has all the wisdom about Life, Hereafter, Heavens, Hell, Angles, Prophets, Destiny , Prayers, etc., that any person would need to have salvation in this life, and eternal life thereafter.
