    I never understood this point. Are you claiming to know what God did or didn’t accept? At the end of the day there could be a variety of reasons that God rejected an act of worship you could’ve:

    1. Done it to show off
    2. Not fasted period
    3. Intended to fast for something other than God. Like to lose weight for example.
    4. Fasted for another god besides God.

    So you can’t claim to know what God did or didn’t do. You have no contract with Him. Muslims are simply being humble in their intent. For someone to run around and say “I’m saved! I’m saved!” I find that extremely arrogant to be quite frank.

      In the past britney has tried to argue that Muslims are secure that they are saved. To copy Christians.

      1. LOL, you moron! Muslims will be saved! But who that will be is a different question. The knowledge of that rests only with Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He). We don’t go around saying “I’m saved” like you idiots do. I can say that if I stay on the path of Islam, with pure intention and believing in Allah and His prophet, then Allah has promised salvation for me. But whether my intentions are pure and whether my faith is pure, Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) will be the judge of that. Get it?

        You idiots go around claiming you’re “saved”, trying to give the impression of some sort of “guarantee”. But guarantees can be given by anyone, even a shady salesman. They don’t mean anything without proof! It reminds me of a scene from “Tommy Boy” with Chris Farley (excuse the language):

        Salvation is a gift from God. My deeds don’t need to be weighed or accepted to gain entry. Simple really. Compare Islam

        “Being a Muslim it is our belief that we have to die one day and our final destination is the life of the hereafter. In the hereafter, we go to Jannah (Paradise) or Jahannam (Hell-fire) depends upon the deeds that we did in worldly life…”

    Oh no that’s not what I meant to allow me to clearer. All Muslims are going to Heaven period.

    What we all don’t know is if a specific individual will die a Muslim. For example, I don’t say QB and I are going to Heaven and you’re going to Hell because I don’t know how either you or us will die. QB and I could’ve been hypocrites (and we seek God’s protection from this) and died saying there is no God. You at 80 years old could turn around and say “Islam was the truth and God I repent from everything I ever said about it” and then die an hour later.

    Unless revelation of some sort is said by God or a prophet we remain silent and pray to be among the people God guided. For example, we can say for sure Abu Lahab, The Pharaoh, any nation God destroyed, Abu Jahl, the Devil and the Anti Christ, etc, are going to Hell. No, if and’s or buts.

    In the same way, we can say all prophets, martyrs, disciples, etc are going to Heaven because God has said this.

    1. the simple answer is no, they shouldn’t because they are damaged and when they continue to sin and have DOUBTS , then their damaged nature is dominating over them. this is why their belief and their deeds are like menstrual rags…this is why they need intermediary , james white says “even my REPENTANCE isn’t good enough” i.e he already told himself that his god let him get away with WEAK insincere repentance, dependence on krists blood creates this in christian mind. a crosstian does not have to feel guilty about his crime because his krist already became guilty on the cross, a crosstians job is to CELEBRATE after every sin he does because his guilt is DAMAGED and STAINED. christian is damaged creature from BIRTH.
      so no, according to christianity, christian cannot do good and if he does, he knows that his “good” is FILTH stained and it won’t get him any points in his gods eyes because his god is self obsessed with his self abuse.

        if your gods PROPHETS couldn’t produce the fruits EVEN when CHATTING FACE TO FACE with your god, if they COULDN’T do his laws and rituals , if they fell into IDOLATRY even after REGULAR visits, HOW IS it possible for one who is BORN with DAMAGED nature? your “holy” spirit is A lie since it is SIMPLY a feeling within you…but feelings could be BS….your confidence could be COMPLETE bs GIVEN to you by your DAMAGED and dented nature.

    1. He won’t answer bro because his religion offers contradictory answers itself. He knows this, but won’t admit it. He will try to put the best possible spin to make it appear that it’s “simple really”, when reasonable people know it’s not.

      Let’s compare the contradictory versions on salvation in Cerbie’s scripture:

      “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.” (Matthew 25)

      Hmm, so who are the “sheep” and the “goats”? Is salvation really a “gift from God” as Cerbie claims? Um…no. It turns out that the “sheep” are those who did good deeds:

      “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

      The “goats” on the other hand are those who did not do good deeds:

      “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.”

      So, where is the gift from God? Contrary to Cerbie’s lie, people’s deeds are indeed weighed. Those who did good deeds will be rewarded. Those who did not will be punished. Simple really…

      But then the false apostle Paul said that salvation comes from God only. Cerbie seems to be rejecting his savior’s teaching in favor of the false apostle’s teaching:

      “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-” (Ephesians 2:8).

      But even Paul contradicted himself on this matter! For example, he said that women will be saved through childbearing. What?!

      “But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety” (1 Timothy 2:15).

      So much for Cerbie’s “simple really” comment. Cerbie is just a liar, just like his sinful savior.

    jew:

    This flatly contradicts God’s own teachings, that we are supremely in command of our spiritual destiny through our actions. See Genesis 4:7; Deuteronomy 30: 11-14, 19-20; Ezekiel Chapters 18 and 33. Also Psalms 145:18.

    a christians porn addition, murder, killing, backbiting, homosexuality, WEAK faith, doubt in faith, doubting INERRANCY, LACK of trust in god (weak faith) won’t be the deciding factor , so WHY try to perfect your repentance , deeds or your faith ?

    anything you do internally, “in your mind” or physically is not deciding factor to gain entrance into paradise.

    even your “faith” is crap since you are human “born in sin”

    “Being a Muslim it is our belief that we have to die one day and our final destination is the life of the hereafter. In the hereafter, we go to Jannah (Paradise) or Jahannam (Hell-fire) depends upon the deeds that we did in worldly life…”

    yes, this is correct, but islam says “for them is FORGIVENESS and great reward….” meaning the FORGIVENESS WILL PRECEDE the reward. Who is the one doing the FORGIVING ?

  5. cerbie,

    your thoughts, (try not to dance too much):

    As far as your question, the ALmighty in the Quran almost always states in regards to the entrance of Paradise, that “For them is forgiveness and a great reward”. Forgiveness precedes the granting of the reward of Paradise, alluding to the fact that perfection is not a condition of Paradise and never was.

    In other verses, this same idea is alluded to with man being purified of any enmity he had towards others, meaning even people who do not like each other, when they enter Paradise their grievances will be removed. The point is, Paradise is made through sincere effort, which includes sacrifices on this path, to overcome one’s own weaknesses. To understand this issue even better, we simply need to go to the core philosophy of the Quran, which is life is a test to see what we do, without actually observing with our own eyes reward and punsihment.

    The development of reason and intellect would be pointless if man could see the fruits right before him.

    Man is faced by situations where he has to act with either taqwa or sabr, the foremr alluding to protecting one’s self from the ‘charms’ of this world, while the latter refers to being steadfast in the face of the ‘hardships’ of this world for the sake of a truth he does not see, but believes in the core of his heart exists. When he chooses right, this consciousness of iman increases and he becomes more and more certain. This is what Allah refers to when he says their belief increases. Further, when man errs or makes a mistake, he repents and learns and modifies his behavior. These mistakes are also part of the learning process and is one of the reasons, the Prophet (S) said that an ijtihad, even if it is wrong gets rewarded by God. Repentance is necessary as well for the development of the consciousness, because humility is an essential aspect of knowledge. The point is, it is the attitude towards a mistake which leads a person to his downfall, not the mistake itself. This idea of test to develop the concisouness is alluded to throughout the Quran, a shining example being in surah Baqarah, when Allah refers to the change of qibla as a means to develop the faculties of man, including his moral conscience. Allah states that he did not do this to make people lose their faith, but to bring forth their good qualities and remove their bad. The good quality being alluded to is that it divested the Muslims of blidn allegience to cultural norms and traditions of their forefathers, as well as broke the bonds of excessive ritualism, leading to a concept of righteuounsess that is illustrated in verse 177 of surah Baqarah. This allowed them to obtain the spirit of Abrahamic obedience, who, no matter where he was, no matter the time, no matter the cultural traditions of his people or the people he lived in, was ready to obey God over all others. Life is dynamic and deeds are the ‘sacrifice’ by which one attests to his faith. It is absolutely a fatal flaw to approach Islam from the perspective of grace, and at the same time, it is also a fatal flaw to approach Islam from the position of arrogance, i.e. by my deeds I earn something. As Shad beautifully points out:

    yup, we will know only on the Day of Judgement. That is the whole point of creating moral tension in man so that he/she dwells between hope and fear (as opposed to jude’s certitude of salvation..). This moral tension has a positive bearing on life in that it propels us to always be proactive in doing good (for we never know if enough is enough) while at the same time it allows us to indulge a bit in the world (since God loves us)…

    Man has to cultivate this moral tension to succeed in life. It is rooted in living in the world and dealing with people and society, by maintaining one’s connection with God, despite not seeing him. Further, it is absolutely incorrect to assume we are not guaranteed Paradise and salvation. God does not go back on his Promise. The argument by the evangelists that through Jesus we are saved is meaningless and nonsensical. Everybody is guaranteed salvation and Paradise, if they make a sincere effort to live by the truth. It is a matter of living by the principles that we know are true, not simply acknowledging it.

      If salvation is a gift, it can’t be earned. That’s the point.

      Christians live their life in thankfulness for the gift of salvation.

      Muslims live their life hoping their deeds suffice. Even then their intentions are only known by Allah. So zero personal confidence. That’s why britney has nuances his position by only saying Muslims are saved, but acknowledging he doesn’t even know who these mysterious Muslims are. He may not even be one (clearly not by his inability to live by the Koran and Sunna.)

        Are Christians supposed to do good and where does Jesus say that one doesn’t have to do good?

        Next, Muslims do not “worship” Muhammad(saw) however a prophet is given authority to command things by God. We do not worship Muhammad(saw) any more than the Jews worship Moses(as) who commanded things. It comes with being a prophet.

        Moving on. I know Christians like to tell people about their beliefs (like the Jews supposed “sacrifice system”) but I’ll ask again please list anything from the Qur’an or Hadith that says Muslims believe good deeds are more important than faith. I’ll wait… Also why you’re there please tell me where you talked to God and he told you that you’re going to Heaven.

        Finally, there is no force compelling you to do things. It is not contradictory to also check one’s intent. Due to the fact that it’s too “complex” for you to know whether you need to good, I’ll explain:

        Believe it or not, you can start with one intention and change it to another through the course of an action. An easy example is our last discussion the Prophet(saw) said: “All actions are by intentions.” When he said that was after they migrated to flee oppression. A man in the city that was oppressing the Muslim originally didn’t want to move, however after he got a marriage offer by a woman he moved. In his mind, he thought oh alright I’ll move here get the reward for migrating for the sake of God and get married. So he believed his intent was for God but it was for the woman hence the above saying.

        At an easier to digest level, I asked a Christian one time why he had put money in the offering plate. His first reaction was worshipping God. As we explored and I asked what compelled you to go up and do it when you weren’t going to do it he said he saw other people doing it and he didn’t want to look cheap. So he convinced himself he did something for God when the reality was he wanted it to be said of him. This is a lot more common than you think. They say one thing but when you get to the nitty gritty what was truly in their heart comes out hence constantly checking the intent.

        P.S. the verse made sense your reading comprehension is low:
        Judge what you do now because you are enough of an accountant for your self.

    are those who believe and do good the same as those who disbelieve and do evil? We are “giving back” what God provided and God owns…it is God who is the one who says “you did RIGHT”

    “Even then their intentions are only known by Allah. So zero personal confidence. ”

        Of course, the Hebrew Bible doesn’t use the term “get to Heaven” but having life. While traditional Jews believe in the afterlife, it is barely alluded to in the Hebrew Bible. But that is a whole different discussion!
        As for control over our actions, the Torah teaches us that we have the free will to choose to obey or disobey God and therefore the free will to choose life or death (Deuteronomy 30). The Torah teaches us that God will reward those who obey and punish those who disobey (Deuteronomy 11). There are no free lunches, but anyone can repent at any time if he chose wrongly, as Ezekiel explains in chapters 18 and 33. He teaches that if you turn away from your sins, they will be completely forgotten.

    First, I asked what’s the difference between your concept of God and the Aztec and Hawaiian pagan idols involving blood sacrifice? ANd how you have no forgiveness you’re simply trying to appease and bribe a blood god?

    Next, are you saying Jesus(As) didn’t talk about SALVATION? And so you have to appeal to Paul who never even quotes Jesus(As)? This is very odd, why would Jesus(as) be silent on this issue, which is the MAIN reason for God sending a prophet? We have time for parables for days but no clear understanding from the man, that’s highly unlikely.

    Moving on, you say the question requires more nuance but then attack Islam’s position and try to invent our beliefs. If a religion is based on “works” then the action is more important than faith. Since you believe we are works based please show your evidence because I can provide textual evidence to the contrary. Islam has the exact same position as Christianity on the subject. We do good because God commanded us to and they reflect the faith in our hearts. Oh, look at that it’s that simple of an answer. The only place we differ is you believe faith is in Jesus(as) and we believe faith is in the one who sent Jesus(as).

    Finally, you’re intent can change without you realizing it. Now IF you know your intent was pure and according to what God sent He will accept it but you still remain humble about worship. For example, when Abraham(as) was building the Kaaba he said: “Oh our Lord please accept this from us”(referring to him and Ishmael(as)) His intent was fine, he(as) was even God’s friend but he still was humble about his worship.

It never means innocence, nor vindication, nor justification, nor “being right with G-d” as Paul of Tarsus and the NT teach us. This one NT teaching has pulled the wool over the eyes of people who don’t know Hebrew and has also killed the heart of the Torah, namely Hashem’s love of true righteousness which is the DOING OF TZEDAKAH.)

        QUOTE :

        Paul has turned TZEDAKAH (the practice of justice) into SELF-CENTEREDNESS. Instead of tzedakah meaning “what must I do for others”, he turns it into “HOW CAN WE SAVE OURSELVES FROM BEING CONDEMNED BY THE WRATHFUL FATHER.”

        And ironically, Rabbi, that is exactly what Christians REALLY believe when they are not trying to convert people, but living their life in a cycle of sin and repentance. How many times have we seen the bumper sticker that reads, “Christians are not Perfect, just Forgiven”?

        This is the catch-22 they face. If God can forgive and welcome an imperfect person, then what is the need for Jesus? On the other hand, if they are still sinning even after accepting Jesus (and ALL of them are, by their own admission), then on what basis are they fit for God’s presence, if sinless perfection is the qualifying criteria? Think about this: if it is about “the blood of Jesus” and “Jesus dying for our sins”, then there is no need for repentance or even right-doing, since God does not consider your sin, but Jesus’ supposed perfection in your place.

      3. “Re intentions- did Allah accept your fasting? Yes or no?”

        1. are you asking this question from HEAVEN or asking this question from your DAMAGED , filthy original sin STAINED nature ? who is SPEAKING in you when you ASK THIS QUESTION? WHO? the bible cannot be a STANDARD , since EVERY AUTHOR was “BORN in sin”
        so who is ASKING this question ?

        from Quranic perspective does ALLAH ACCEPT fasts? YES! Allah does accept fasts .
        NOW i can say “yes God does accept my fast…the QURAN says so”
        that’s EXACTLY what u will say

        “god does accept my faith…the bible says so….”

        but then you will LIST OUT CONDITIONS FOR FAITH… LOL

        you dumb crosstian!

        now let me ask from biblical perspective

        a crosstian does charity, but his charity , his believe is from DAMAGED nature. his INTENTIONS are DAMAGED since it is “born in sin”
        meaning you can NEVER be sure if it is “spiritual force ” speaking in you OR Your damaged being. you can never be sure if it is damaged being giving you the FEELING of confidence or the spiritual force which is within you.

        did yhwh ACCEPT your beliefs? even the ONES who were PERFORMING miracles and doing mighty deeds, thought that they were ACCEPTED……

        even crosstians who DIVORCE (COMMIT ADULTERY) think that their beliefs are BEING ACCEPTED….

      4. “First, I asked what’s the difference between your concept of God and the Aztec and Hawaiian pagan idols involving blood sacrifice? ANd how you have no forgiveness you’re simply trying to appease and bribe a blood god?”

        “Appease God? What part of “salvation and faith is a gift” is unclear to you? Straw man big time.”

        you pathetic born in sin DAMAGED crosstian,

        1. if you can’t score points with your god, that means your “repentance” your “faith” your “deeds” are all
        NOT REQUIRED.

        even if you say “i must ACKNOWLEDGE ….” you are telling yourself YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING for your god……

        the moment you say “….but but i need to be a better crosstian” means that you know deep down that you need to GIVE something to your god to get something back.

        i have had enough of this nonsense that you don’ score points with your god, when you know for a fact that you do.

        you need to give your faith, SOMETHING which he does not have in the understanding that he does not have the EXPERIENCE of practising it like human being….

        everytime someone says x, y and z is NEEDED one is clearly doing it to make someone else happy. if NONE OF IT makes x happy and x is only happy by what he does, then it EXPLAINS WHY crosstians live a life of EVIL AND SIN…..it explains why they celebrate murder AFTER FULL WEEK OF SIN

        like the jew said :

        This is the catch-22 they face. If God can forgive and welcome an imperfect person, then what is the need for Jesus? On the other hand, if they are still sinning even after accepting Jesus (and ALL of them are, by their own admission), then on what basis are they fit for God’s presence, if sinless perfection is the qualifying criteria? Think about this: if it is about “the blood of Jesus” and “Jesus dying for our sins”, then there is no need for repentance or even right-doing, since God does not consider your sin, but Jesus’ supposed perfection in your place.

        It is not a strawman they’re are 2 different discussions. You claimed Muslims have no concept of forgiveness. I argued its you who dont have the concept and your simply appeasing a blood god like the pagans.

        Also you basically admitred you dont get theological beliefs from Jesus(as). Very interesting… Anyway our theological beliefs come directly from the Prophet(saw) and no one else. So Paul the person who taught your theology never quotes Jesus so what is his proof using the life of Jesus for his beliefs?

        Finally like the early church schisms you’ve provided no textual evidence and are using flawed philosophical arguments. Please provide evidence that we believe we can work for our salvation.

        Of course Christians get theological beliefs from both the teachings and life of Jesus. But we don’t isolate ourselves to one portion of our scripture.

        Much the same as Muslims get their theological beliefs from the Quran and the sunnah. I don’t see you complaining about that?

        Like

  14. like qb said, this religion is clearly contradictory ,

    i quote :

    In the synoptic gospels, Jesus never once says ‘believe in me.’ The most famous passage in the bible is John 3:16–and it’s the most important one for Christianity–and Matthew Mark and Luke somehow forgot to include it. (I think a good argument can be made that John’s Jesus is historically inaccurate, so I don’t think it’s fair to just ‘combine the gospel teachings into one.’)

    There are some passages consistent with ‘grace’ in the synoptic gospels–there’s forgiveness of sins, but that’s always contingent on whether we forgive other people for their sins. (Mt 6:14, Mt 18:21ff, Mk 11:26)

    There are however quite a few passages that, I think, clearly teach ‘works righteousness’

    Mt 5:9–Peacemakers (an action) will be called children of God
    Mt 5:44-45–Love enemies/pray for those that persecute you, SO THAT you may be children of God
    Mt 13:40-50–Evildoers and those who cause sin thrown into lake of fire
    Mt 18:8–Better to cut off your hand/eye (thus avoiding sin) than go to hell
    Mt 19:16ff–Rich young ruler to follow law and give away possessions to inherit eternal life

    Mt 25:31ff–Sheep go to heaven for helping others, Goats go to hell for ignoring others in need
    Mk 2:15-18–Jesus–I’m here to call sinners, not righteous people, to repent
    Lk 1:5-6–John’s parents are righteous in God’s eyes, following Law impeccably
    Lk 10: 25ff–Love God and neighbor (Good Samaritan story) to inherit eternal life
    Lk 15:7–More celebration in heaven for the one who repents, than 99 who have NO NEED of repentance.

    Some people are already righteous. They don’t need to repent. They don’t need Jesus, just like the healthy don’t need a physician (Mk 2:15-18). You can be a child of God by having certain attributes, or doing certain things. You can avoid hell by avoiding sin. You can gain eternal life by helping others, following the law, or loving God and others. There are several other passages that echo these thoughts, but these I think are the most clear.

    I’ve heard Christians try to harmonize these passages with grace, but they’re all bad arguments. For example: Jesus is speaking hypothetically to the rich young ruler in Mt 19. You can hypothetically follow the law to gain eternal life. Then when he tells him all that he lacks is giving away his possessions (and he gains eternal life), Jesus is changing the subject (‘riches in heaven’ refers to leading a spiritually fulfilling life), without telling they guy (or us) that he’s changing the subject. (‘One thing you lack’ connects the two thoughts and makes this argument impossible; the guy came to ask about eternal life, and Jesus would be very disingenuous to answer a question he wasn’t asked.)

    Or, in Mk 2, ‘I have not come to call the righteous to repent but sinners’ becomes ‘I have not come to call those who THINK they are righteous to repentance, but those who KNOW they are sinners.’ (Read the NLT; this is how they solve this problem.) Obviously if Jesus was referring to ‘self righteous’ people, he would have said it. And, the analogy no longer makes sense…Healthy people (in reality) do not need a doctor–and therefore people who think they are righteous don’t think they need Jesus…what? They have killed a perfect analogy. Here is how the analogy goes: Healthy people don’t need a doctor–therefore the righteous don’t need Jesus. It’s inconvenient theologically, but it’s a perfect analogy.

    OTOH, here are the passages (in the synoptic gospels) that are consistent with grace–unlike they above passages, I don’t think they ever teach explicitly that you (gain eternal life/avoid judgment/become a child of God/are considered righteous) by (faith/belief/Jesus’ death). Some do talk about forgiveness and being saved…but no one ever connects the dots. ‘Being forgiven’ and ‘being saved’ are gifts Jesus gives–but it is never clearly laid out what they mean. If you are not forgiven for your sin(s), do you avoid eternal judgment? Does ‘being saved’ refer to ‘salvation from eternal judgment?’ (I think this probably is the case, but I don’t know.) Even if Paul, in his writings, connected these dots, how do we know Paul and Jesus held the same soteriology? It would have been nice if Jesus had defined his terms. The ‘grace’ passages: (If there are other passages besides this, there aren’t that many, I have looked and looked.)

    Mt 1:21–Jesus will save people from their sins
    Mt 9:2ff–Jesus forgives sins of paralytic (there may be similar passages to this, but most seem to give no more information)
    Mt 20:28 (Mk 10:45)–Jesus’ life given a ransom for many
    Mk 15:37-38–Temple curtain torn top to bottom (symbolically) just AFTER Jesus dies
    Mt 19:25-26–With man this (salvation) is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
    Mt 26:26-28–Lord’s supper–his blood, poured out for sins
    Lk 1:77–Jesus will give knowledge of salvation through forgiveness of their sins
    Lk 7:50–Your faith has saved you (she had been forgiven by Jesus in v 47)
    In above 2 passages, ‘forgiveness’ and ‘being saved’ are connected–even though it’s not clear what either imply.
    Lk 18:9-14–The man who asked for mercy for being a sinner went home justified before God
    Lk 18:42–Your faith has saved you (context is a healing, however, it doesn’t say what ‘saved’ means.)
    Lk 23:42-43–Thief on the cross will be in paradise with Jesus–but passage never says why.
    (Passages like ‘the one who endures to the end will be saved’ don’t help any with our understanding of what ‘being saved’ means, or if it always means the same thing.)

    So, we have passages that seem pretty air tight:
    –do good works/avoid sin/follow the law/forgive others/help others/possess certain qualities, and you will:
    –gain eternal life/become a child of God/be forgiven/avoid judgment

    And, we have passages that, combined, make a good argument–but are not air tight:
    –Have faith, ask for mercy, and you will:
    –Be saved, be forgiven (but again, forgiveness is 100% contingent on you forgiving others)
    –Gain eternal life? Seems possible, maybe even probable–but no air tight case.

    Did Jesus teach two contradictory ideas? Did he start with ‘works righteousness’ and change to ‘faith righteousness’ later on? Did the gospel writers correctly represent his teachings?… (Just a few questions that I have been trying to answer for decades!)

    Lol, what was that source because that definitely didn’t sound like a Quran ayat or hadith. Please use a real reference.

    Next, Quran and Sunnah are complementary to one another. The Qur’an is God directly speaking and Muhammad is a Prophet and can speak on God’s behalf.

    Paul is neither one of these things so what is the evidence for his personal opinions because he doesn’t quote Jesus(as) so where did he get his authority from?

    so how does it work exactly ? how does the “transferal work” lol

    so jesus ‘ “righteousness” is in you lol ?

    i want to try to picture this.

    when you do a deed, is it mixed with jesus’ “righteousness” ?

    so is it jesus doing the deed or you doing the deed? is it a combo? so you have “purified deeds” ? HOW DO YOU know lol ? is it a feeling ?

    is yhwh happy with your act or jesus’ “righteousness” ?

    is yhwh happy with your ACT and jesus’ “righteousness” ?

    none of your nonsensical bs makes sense. you are a DAMAGED born in sin christian. your heart is FILTH and filled with hate, anger, lust, adultery, murder…..YOU STILL SIN TODAY and tomorrow and the next day , GUARANTEED !

    SO WHAT does it mean “transferred ” lol

    first your god TRANSFERS ALL THE CRAP you do from -mon-sun and ABUSES himself with your sins, then he TRANSFERS “righteousness ” to you ? what?

    so you sin from monday-sunday and have transferal of someone else “righteousness” ?

    when you are doing deeds, is krist doing deeds in you lol ? so krist is experiencing your faith? experiencing your charity? experiencing your temptations? experiencing your worship?

    i don’t know how this transferal works, do explain.

    you did not even reply. IS IT THE “righteousness” of krist which god is happy with or your faith, deeds , repentance? do you really think you, being born with DAMAGED nature can sincerely repent ?

    you are STILL a crosstian SINNER….you still a WEAK , POLLUTED AND CORRUPT human being….is krist “righteousness” in your CORRUPTED state? does he partake in your corrupted acts, repentance, and deed?

    i want to know how X is in the DEEDS, repentance, guilt ….of Y, when Y is by NATURE CORRUPT AND POLLUTED AND STILL SINS……

    so your god is SIMPLY covering your DAMAGED BORN IN SIN BEING with his krist, and LETTING you get away with your POLLUTED NATURE, RIGHT? RIGHT? RIGHT?
