There does not seem to be any attempt by people who do not believe in Jesus Christ as LORD to discern the difference of Christian religion versus true faith in Jesus Christ in any of the discussion/debates continuing in this post. For someone to say that Islam is a true faith over other belief systems based on the biased observation of say, a denominational split occurring from failure to be true the Holy Bible, is a failure itself to recognize that belief in Jesus Christ in faith is just as viable and inspiring now, even more so as we see the evidence of scriptural fulfillment occurring before our eyes.

The idea that men have ‘edited' religious tenets for the benefit of making a belief system fit a particular world view is not a new thing, by any means, and all belief systems have been affected one way or another, including Islam, if one is to believe that Hadiths are not any different than Biblical commentaries or Talmudic writings. Were this not true, how is it that there are two distinct variants of Islam struggling to achieve primacy much in the same way that Catholicism has conflicted with Protestantism (much to the contradiction of the Papal anouncements in Australia)?

To say that Islam is a true faith is to stress the unbelief the Islamic Prophet had in the Holy Bible and in the LORD and Savior Jesus Christ; for before there was Islam, there is Jesus Christ. Believing as a true disciple in Jesus Christ is as much a true faith as any, and only in the religious dissembling found in mainstream religious Christian communities today is there the interjections of false beliefs so many are so willing to accept to try and confuse those with true faith in Jesus Christ. This comes from not reading and accepting the simple truth of the Holy Bible as being the revealed Word of Almighty God, and unbelief will hide the truth.

What we are seeing in America is the failure to hold the Biblical truths that help to found this country in the esteem necessary to hedge America from the sedition that comes from unbelief from any sector of society seeking to undermine the Constitutional guarantees, religious or otherwise. Any ideology not conforming to the principles that gave America its greatness is compelled to controvert it and must be defended against by standing with the founding principles, or America will succumb to its own inability to protect the freedoms and liberties under such attack.

It is said that there is ‘editing' of religious ideologies to suit a belief system, and this is just like there are ‘edits' of the laws that govern this country. Laws that were once based on Biblical principles are being exchanged with laws based on human thinking and are bereft of spiritual guidance. It has been advanced by some that a legal system based on observance of sharia law would serve to bring morality into a society that does so. But the evidence where it is employed tells a different story, contrary to what many will say. The hearts of mankind need to be changed and sharia does not expose the hearts of men or women.

Faith is the spiritual basis by which humanity can establish any relationship with Almighty God, and by the truth contained in the Holy Bible (and not by any editing of any religious convocation that tries to subvert its truth), faith in Jesus Christ and His Gospel has been established as the sole means to reach the Father, no matter what ideologically different belief systems might try to say otherwise. And yet faith in Jesus Christ is being shouted down because the world seeks after a different solution for peace, and without faith in Jesus Christ, there is no real peace. Soon, there will be no peace to be found in America, for faith there will be exchanged for religiosity of whatever kind, and then the final intervention in Jerusalem will demonstrate the Biblical imperative of why it was important to believe in Jesus Christ and the promises of the Holy Bible.
