And here we see the manifest difference between the Holy Bible, which has in its very beginnings the need, nay the absolute necessity for mankind to seek out the LORD, but cannot for pride and sin; and the ambivalence most of mankind has regarding the individual's need for reconciliation to Almighty God due to sin.

We are told in the previous post no such situation requires Divine action, but there is still sin. Sin may be disguised, put aside, described in political correctness, whatever, but Almighty God does not ignore it, for he sees its destruction on humanity every bloody day. And it is getting worse. The Quran does not deal with the innate aptitude of mankind, indeed the predilection for humanity to inflict terror, horror and depravity upon fellow humanity, only to pronounce Islamic platitudes from the Islamic Prophet who tries to take away the very reason for Jesus Christ to visit His people Israel. In this previous post and other posts we read some say that Jesus Christ did not die for the sins of believer, and yet we can walk to the very place in Israel when the very deed was done. How can such a contradiction be in the face of such evidence?

Sin has as its very central hold on humanity due to pride of the individual denying its existence in unbelief of the Holy Bible. And this is what those who are adherents to the Quran try to debate with disciples of Jesus Christ. What the Quran does not provide is the means for a sinner, or the whole of humanity (except Jesus Christ, sinless by His virgin birth), to be reconciled with Almighty God, Who will not by His declared Word, consort with the filthiness of a corrupted mankind. This was the plan from the beginning (Gen 3:15) to provide a Savior to be the Redeemer (only the lies of the Adversary and those whom he has fooled will deny this) and sacrifice for the sins of those who believe. Jesus Christ did take our burden, and gave us freedom for it.

To deny this is the central cause of division among believers having faith in Jesus Christ and belief in any other religious cause. Mankind is inherently darkened in sin and unbelief, and it is in the light of Jesus Christ that there is any hope of escaping the judgment that comes at the end of the mortal existence, and no hope for eternal life as promised in Jesus. So in that, it is supposed that if one were to take away the salvation offered in the Holy Bible through Jesus Christ, what does one have left? Well, it is guessed, maybe the Quran.

But the Holy Bible does tell us of Jesus Christ, and the Gospel of His death on the cross, His burial and resurrection, and of His ascension to Heaven. But faith is required, and before one faces the end of this mortal existence. In faith one can believe in the salvation provided for through Jesus Christ, asking Him for forgiveness of sins and accepting Him into our hearts. Almighty God speaks to everyone who needs His grace and mercy that through Jesus Christ, that the hope and eternal life are provided through His love, and all one needs to do is set aside the pride that grips the heart and believe in Him in faith.
