Deeper Consideration of Why Any Religion Compells Belief Without Love

Reader comment on item: Why the Death Edict on Salman Rushdie?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Aug 23, 2022 at 13:35

In view of the resident antipathies that avid adherents of Islam hold to 'protecting' their belief system and apparetnly always being 'on alert' to defend Islamic 'honor,' followers of the venerable Ayatollah Khomeini must adopt these positions or be found guilty, like Salman Rushdie, of violating those precepts that Islam has been propagating for centuries. In this we reiterate the contrast of the Messianic Gospel, which Islam tries desparately, but cannot, replace the message of love in believing that salvation of the cross is a better pursuit.
The key difference between the two is that Messianic belief is predicated on forgiveness in the love of the Savior, something that is missing in the edict from the Ayatollah, the mullahs, and the adhrerents that would prefer to kill in order to prove their devotion. How is that better? It is deceptive to think that it is; but who is willing to see that following Islam does not lead to peace. Just ask any Muslim (like a 'Palestinian') if life is really better without the love of God leading them.
