Dear Paul,


The answer to your question 1 is in the quotes in my last email as is the answer to the next 2 parts of question 2. Will you answer the question I posed in my email?

When have you done enough? I think this is answered at


I am not sure what you mean by “tough questions”. You have so far not asked me any tough questions.


Lazarus died and was brought back to life. And? Jesus’ final great miracle was the sign of Jonah, (Matthew 12:39-40). Jonah, presumed dead but miraculously lives another day. I believe Jesus was a great prophet, a messiah but I do not believe Jesus (peace be upon him) was or is God incarnate.


Does that make me guilty in your eyes?


The central problem in Christianity is this: If the crucifixion happened with the significance that, by it all our sins are automatically forgiven, then what about those people before the crucifixion? Either “salvation” becomes massively easier for people, which makes God unjust – or the way to “salvation” has not fundamentally changed with the crucifixion.


One or the other is true and they cannot both be true. So which is it? God is just. The crucifixion seems to me to be a repeat of the sign of Jonah. However it happened, somehow Jesus amazingly survived. It has the same significance as a proof of his mission as a prophet and it didn’t change the basics of “salvation”.


“Salvation” was, is, and will always be simply this: God guides us human beings to do what is right. We are each responsible to act on the knowledge we have and to sincerely seek to obey God’s will.  That is it - a simple truth.



I hope I have answered your questions adequately. Will you answer my question?


Do you submit yourself to the will of God?

Dear Lamaan,

I am sorry for shouting at you, I did not realize that I was. Also, I am a very bad speller at times but I think that this is rather a small point.  I realize that you are well grounded in your faith ,as I am in my belief that Jesus is the only way to heaven.  But, since we have made contact, maybe you can answer a few other questions.


1.  What does the Koran say about your salvation and eternal life? 


2.  How can you get eternal life from Islam?  Do you have to do good works in this life?  How do you know when you have done enough?  The only positive answer from the koran, is that one must die for allah in order to have the assurance of eternal life!  If this world is all there is to life, then it is not worth the living.  Faith, hope, and love abide in Jesus the Christ.


3. Why do muslims say that we christians have insulted them when we present them with tough questions?  I do not think your website or your questions insult me.  If I do not know the answer, I will seek out someone who does and not just say you insulted me. 


4.  You ask an age old question that is very worldly.  Where is the proof that Jesus is the only way?  There has been volumes and volumes of testimony that would take a lifetime to read giving proof.  The basics of faith is that we believe!!  The proof is that Jesus is the only one who has conquered death!  His tomb is empty.  Do not many muslisms journey to the tombs of the muslim prophet and clerics to pray?  Where is the tomb of Jesus?  When you find it, it is empty!  Read and study the Gospel of Luke.  Doesn't the koran even deny the death of Jesus?  Make no mistake, the Romans were very good at putting people to death.  Jesus died and as he said he arose from the grave!!!!


5.  One final question, Who would you rather serve; a god (allah) that says die for me and you shall enter heaven or a God who came in the flesh and died for our sins so that we might enter heaven? For me the choice is easy.  Brother, God loves you, you can be his child instead of being a slave to a god.  John1;9  says that if we confess our sins that he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness!!


Psalm 97;1-7--------"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad, let all shores rejoice!.....justice and righteousness are the foundations of his throne, fire goes before him consuming his foes. His lighting lights up the world, the whole earth sees and trembles.  Mountains melt like wax before the Lord, the heavens proclaims his RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all people shall see him in his Glory!!!!!  JESUS IS WORTH SHOUTING ABOUT!!!!!  HE LOVES YOU AND WANTS TO KNOW YOU. 


I hope you can answer a few of these questions for me if you are truly open minded as your website asks others to be, then maybe you can research this.  Especially the question about salvation and eternal life.

Dear Paul,


Thank you for your concern.


However, your email reveals a number of things which I would like to bring to your attention.


Simply asserting that a belief is true, does not make it so. To demonstrate such a claim you need reasons and evidence.


You imply that I am a bad person for not accepting your assertions. Why? What have I done wrong? Why are you attacking me in this way? If you preach to people in a way that insults them, accusing them of sinning, without giving an explanation of what their sin is (other than disagreeing with you) then, of course, people will stop listening. The louder you speak, the less people will listen. It is not because they are deaf that your message doesn’t get through. SHOUTING is not the way to get through to people.


Finally, you should not accuse me of being in error when at the same time you are make glaring errors yourself.


What is a “false prohit”? Of course you mean “false prophet”. What is an “Islamic”? You mean a “Muslim”. Now, if you are accusing Muslims of following a false prophet, then we might start to have a reasonable debate on the issue. However, what should I conclude given that you apparently don’t even know how to word the accusation using the right words? I conclude that you know very little about the Prophet Muhammad (May peace and blessings be upon him) and what he taught. As such, your claim that I am in error is weakened to the point where I don’t pay it any credible attention.


I do not blame you for not knowing about Islam and Muslims, but I find your unfounded accusations unjust and insulting. That said, I forgive you for it, in the hope that God will forgive me some of my own faults.


Let me finish with a couple of quotes from the Qur’an – the holy book of Islam:


And they say: "None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew - or - be a Christian." Those are their (vain) desires. Say: "Produce your proof if you are truthful."
Nay,-whoever submits His whole self to God and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Surah 2 Verses 111 - 112

The Religion before God is Islam (submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book (i.e. Christians, Jews and others with scripture from earlier revelations) dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of God, God is swift in calling to account.
So if they dispute with you (Muhammad), say: "I have submitted My whole self to God and so have those who follow me." And say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: "Do ye (also) submit yourselves?" If they do, they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, Thy duty is to convey the Message; and in God's sight are (all) His servants.

Surah 3 Verses 19 - 20

Do you submit yourself to the will of God?


Warmest Regards,

Very interesting how you distort the truth!  Many people and false prohits have tried to deny the deity of JESUS but they fail.  You can not compare JESUS to any aspect of Islam because he has no equal, his kingdom is without end, death could not keep him in the grave and his love for you endures forever.    THIS IS THE TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY ----JESUS IS ALIVE AND HE IS COMING AGAIN FOR HIS CHILDREN.  PRAISE THE ONE TRUE GOD IN HEAVEN THAT THE DAY WILL COME AND ALL THE EARTH WILL SEE HIM IN HIS GLORY!!!!  I BEG YOU OH ISLAMICS, REPENT AND ACCEPT HIM INTO YOUR HEARTS.  HE IS HOLY AND HE IS GOD.  ARE YOU READY FOR HIS RETURN??
