Modern Societies, especially ones that were formed from religious expression dating back to the early Sumerians, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, ancient Asian and all the others that sprang from exiles of the tower of Babel, all invariably have a primal issue of the inability to express what constitutes living a life that focuses on a single truth: as creations that are given a choice to live in eternal truth, why would we choose the lie?
Worse yet; we are children of a created being that had first choice and to the detriment of the rest of us, chose wrong, thereby causing the entirety of the rest of created humanity to be subject to the same error.
Centuries and millennia have gone by in which the same question is posed: how do we relate to the Creator?
Religious guesses do not get it done.
Then, where do we get the power to obtain the righteousness necessary for entry into eternity?
Only One individual in history of the entirety of humanity, from the family of Abram, Abraham, can tell us the truth. He taught that religion does not get it done. His words formed the the truth before time; can that be said of the religious words of any other religious following? Certainly not in Islam, let alone any of the others. Certainly not in any of the actions that teach self destruction is a valuable means of expressing eternal life.
We are, of course, speaking of the only Person that was put to death for challenging the false piety of the religious leadership of the time of His first appearance, they doing so for the false narrative they taught to their generation for the lack of belief in the things of eternity He taught in love. They rejected HIs love.
Modern societies today reject His love in the same way, making excuses and alternative reasons for not allowing any to enter into eternity, rejecting the Gospel of Yeshua, Jesus Christ, for reasons of not desiring to follow Him in the love of God He expressed. His proof: He died, shedding His blood for the redemption of mankind; then rising in truth to be the pathfinder into eternity and eternal life. Islam, in fact no other religion, including impious Judaism and Christianity and the others, cannot make any such claim to entry into eternal life; and using this in order to frustrate the witness of true 'conversion' is what the world cannot solve on its own.
BTW: The 'easter' bunny is a modern expression of an ancient religious myth that has ties to pagan rites of fertility, definitely not the way to immortality or eternity.
