Religion and Faith in the Truth of the LORD Yeshua HaMashiach of the Holy Bible are Two Separate Things

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Would to the LORD Almighty God that all mankind would forsake religion and come to faith in Yeshua HaMashiach as believers in His love, grace and mercy. Unfortunately, as mankind fell in the garden from the sin of Adam and Eve, religion became the manmade substitute to try and reach Almighty God, who turned away from the sin that now separated Him from the creation.

It is because of His love and the fore sight and knowledge of the fall of mankind that the LORD prepared salvation through His Son Yeshua HaMashiach before it happened, and the Holy Bible was commissioned by the LORD to document this. It did not matter which language it was written in, for the LORD made sure it was written in the language of the people He chose to reveal it to. It is now written in hundreds of languages to that it is real to those who have chosen to follow Him in faith.

Now, from you and other who claim they are followers of the original Quran, we understand it is written in original Arabic. Is this not correct? It has also been proposed that only those to whom the original document was written are to be the only recipients of its specific blessing, that all others being non-Arabic cannot enjoy what it is supposed to offer. Is this not so?

Thus, since the Holy Bible tells this follower of Yeshua HaMashiach that belief in Him in the faith He calls for, to provide salvation unto me for my faith in His love even though I do not deserve it, my sin debt paid for by His blood shed on the cross of His death, and my justification of faith being found in His resurrection and ascension into Heaven, there is no way that the empty and unsupported words of an unbeliever of Jesus Christ is going to make the proven and manifested Word of Almighty God in the Holy Bible go away. Neither you can do it, neither can the unbelief found in the Quran, neither can the years and decades and centuries of unbelieving men and women who turned Yeshua HaMashiach, and neither the Adversary and his minions.

So I will make my claim the same as Paul of Tarsus, to know nothing save my knowledge of Yeshua HaMashiach, and will take my blissful ignorance of the unbelieving words uttered by the Islamic Prophet and wait for my Savior, Jesus Christ, to return, and to prove once and for all, that HE IS THE LORD ALMIGHTY GOD, to the everlasting shame of the world that could not come to terms with the truth of Who He is.
