Islam is not Like Christianity - The Goal of Afterlife is Not the Same in Apostasy

Reader comment on item: The Need for a Focus on Western Islamism

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jan 31, 2022 at 20:14

In Christian circles, obtaining righteousness is the goal of being obedient to the premise of the study of Biblical principles; going to heaven because loving the Savior is the truth of life and death. In Islam, death is treated differently since love is not its source.
This is what Islamism misses and cannot be separated from its base Quranic goals as premised by following Islam independently, whether one follows the teaching of al-Madhi or not.
