If the Love of Almighty God Through Jesus Christ is the Action, What Should be the Reaction?

in response to reader comment: To every action there is equal and opposite reaction

The touchy sensitivity in this dissertation comes down to this; Islam requires submission, and yet not all will submit. This is the true divergence of the situation, the point where one who has submitted to Islam is shocked that one who has not submitted to Islam will not.

Now, let us suppose for a moment that your assertion that Islam has some control over some peoples' lives is so. The problem in that assertion is that Islam does not have total control, that it does not have control over all peoples' lives. How is that so, one may ask?

People who have their lives in the hands of Jesus Christ are not under the control of Islam, but are under the control of the Almighty God of the Holy Bible, even to the submission of the end of this mortal life, and to the life eternal through Jesus Christ. Islam will never control that, and maybe that is the problem and conflict that caused Islam to adopt its attitude toward Christianity in the first place.

Islam exists because some people, like so many who reject Christianity altogether, did not want to submit their lives to the love of Jesus Christ. That is the truth about Islam.

The final point is this, that the love of Almighty God, who sent Jesus Christ to reveal the truth about life, sin, redemption from the power of death caused by sin, paid for by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, is so much more powerful that any other force in the universe, for it extends grace and mercy to this undeserving world. To whom should one submit? It is better to serve Christ in love than to submit to anything else in fear.

The fact that Jesus Christ is to return is the punctuation mark for completing the revelation of the power of Almighty God. And that will be the true power that all will see in the end.
