A Mediator Needed Since we have sinned, we are not allowed to come into the presence of a holy God. But if we cannot go to God for forgiveness, how will we obtain forgiveness? If good deeds will not work, how will we ever enter paradise? What if someone went before God on our behalf? What if there was a mediator who could intercede on our behalf? Question: Wouldn't a mediator solve our problem with sin? Yes___ No___ Now, such a mediator must be sinless and without blame. Otherwise, he could not go before a holy God either. The mediator must be as righteous and as holy as God Himself or he cannot stand before God. Even if this mediator could enter God's presence, how could he clear the record of all our sins? He would have to pay off our debt to justice somehow. One obvious way is for him to take upon himself the punishment due to us. In other words, in order for us to escape the fires of hell, he would have to smother the flames of hell in his own bosom. This mediator would have to be the bridge between heaven and earth and between God and man. A mediator who is not quite God or not quite man is a bridge broken at either end. We need someone to represent God to us and us to God. This mediator has to be both God and man at the same time or salvation is not possible. The Gospel Have you ever heard the word "Gospel"? What is it all about? It is a word which means "good news." What is the good news? The good news is that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. He did what we could not do. He entered into the presence of God on our behalf to obtain forgiveness for us. How could he do this? On what basis? He bore our sins and iniquities in his own body on the cross. He died for our sins according to the Gospel. This is why salvation is a gift of God's grace. Jesus paid the price for our salvation. Thus God now offers us eternal life free of charge. We become a Christian by simply asking Jesus to be our Mediator- our Savior- our Redeemer. You don't become a Christian by joining a church, getting baptized or doing some other good deed. No, salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. He brings us into the very presence of God. Question: Haven't you ever wondered why the God of Islam seems so distant - so far off? Yes___ No__ Without a mediator, God is far off and distant. A distant God is only feared, not loved. He is unapproachable and seems far away. Question: Don't you see the need for a mediator to pay off your sins and clear your record? Yes___ No___ Question: Does Islam offer you a mediator to take away your sins? Yes___ No__ Question: If Islam has no mediator and no atonement, does it have any gospel, i.e. good news? Yes___ No___ The End Of The Matter Dear Friend, Islam leaves you high and dry with no way to deal with the corruptions of your heart here on earth or the record of your sins in heaven. It does not build a bridge between you and God. It does not have a mediator who is both God and man. With no Savior and no atonement, it can never give you any sure hope of heaven. But all these things are found in the Gospel. Stop right now and ask Jesus to be your Mediator. Ask Him to come into your heart as your Lord and Savior. Receive forgiveness through His atoning work. Pray this simple prayer. Lord Jesus, I ask you to reveal Yourself to me. Save me and cleanse me of my sins. Pay off my debt to God. Come into my heart and save me from hell and make a home in heaven for me. I acknowledge that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross for me. If you prayed this prayer, you have become a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus has now cleared your record in heaven and the Holy Spirit will now come into your heart to deal with the corruptions found in it. God is no longer distant and far off. He is your Father and you are his child. Welcome to the family of God! Contact us so we can share your joy.

If we view the statements and sayings of Jesus,we'll gather that he did not xplain the doctrine of trinity even once in his lifetime but he always gave instruction on the unity of God.In the gospel of Matthew 22:36 &Mark 12:29 jesus said "Hear O children of israel,the Lord our God is One,and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength"...

After jesus,his disciples are second in rank.If we research their statements we do not find any conception of trinity or incarnation.The bible ascribes the disciples to have used the word "God" for jesus.But this word has been frequently used in the sense of "Master" or "Teacher".There are a number of verses in the Bible in which the disciples refer to jesus as "Lord" "My Lord" in the sense of teacher.read matthew 23:8-11 also Acts 2:22 & Acts3:13 It is clear frm these veses that he ws considerd a messenger

If Jesus died on the cross,why there are contradictory narrations about the crucifixion or was it cruci-fiction?.Look at these narrations;Mark15:25 It was the THIRD HOUR,and they crucified him.... John 19:14 it was the SIXTH HOUR,and he was not crucified yet...Mark 15:21 they put jesus on the CROSS...1Peter 2:24 They put jesus on the TREE...John 20:1 The visitor to jesus' grave:Mary magdalene ONLY..Luke 24:10 Mary magdalene and another Mary and joanna (I suppose maryjane too)here is just a few to quot

godschild said "there is no other god but jesus christ" if you read your bible in Genesis 38:15 you will find Judah fornicates with his daughter-in-law and she bore two sons pharez and zarah. In matthew 3:23 the geneology of jesus we see that pharez is his ancestor.Here is a god whos ancestry involves fornication this is the jesus in the bible,while in the qur'an he is a prophet of Allah whos genology was from a pious family.

You said that your bible tells you to love your enemies and bless them that curse you.In your bible gospel luke 19:27 it reads "For these enemies of mine,who did not want me to regn over them,bring them here and slay them before me..there is no love,sorry folks!.In Exodus 13:21 god odered the people of Israel to borrow from the Egyptians their jewels and get away with them when leaving Egypt with Moses(.isn't it stealing?)there are many contradictions in the bible, so it is not trustworthy.

I see that you are quoting texts from the book of John to justify your claim that jesus is God. Can you justify to me "who wrote the gospel of john?"let us see how much you know about your own religion.

Good research on islam but you have complicated yourself with the simple truth.Abraham re-established the house of worship in Makkah and Ismail's descendants were practising Abraham and Ismail's way of worship but in a corrupted form already therefore Islam at the time of prophet Muhammad (pbh)purifies those rituals

Dear Friend, I am new on this site and though your blog was written in 2008 I can not help myself but to write something here. If you like reading, I would like to recommend you read the book entitled The Cross & The Crescent by Jerald F. Dirks. This book is about an interfaith dialogue between Christianity and Islam. I hope this book will help to answer all your questions and if you need more you can go to this website shareislam.com they have a live chat to help answer your questions. May Allah help you in your quest. Take care.

god is one, however we people call him, so no one is allowed to say "god of a specified religion" Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship with Jesus Christ. and there is no "good news" in islam??? Oh yes, i neither saw a christian blow him/herself up to kill others, but i saw them shooting innoncent people with long range machine guns and bombarding whole cities to weaken the muslims. And not to forget Hiroshima and Naghasaki, the atom bomb distroyed millions of innoncent people, they just used the bomb because they were losing the war in Japan. that was brave he????? ok...muslims have the impression that ALL westerners are Christians, that is not true, sadly to say, there are more non-Christians than Christians. the ''good news'' is: Jesus Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead and whoever believes in Him shall be saved and receive eternal life. He WILL return to establish His Kingdom (New Jerusalem). don't u see these words u wrote "i am the life", tell me if u believe so, how can u believe jesus was killed? I believe it with all my heart because it was suppose to happen to fullfill prophesy. I asked u :"where in the bible can I find these words? : I AM GOD??? (saying of Jesus (pbuh) ??? GOD is one and he mentioned it clearly, so if Jesus (pbuh) was/is GOD why didn't he metioned it clearly????? I already sent u the scripture: John 10:30 The Father and I are One KEEP IN YOUR MIND: U ASKED ABOUT THE ISLAM, NOT THE MUSLIMS when the name is "islam" which means peace, how can u say it isn't??? Isn't Islam the religion muslims are following?????? would you be willing to email me? God bless

You said you don't understand all this. You would understand if you would believe.

God is not against war, but it is sometimes necessary. About Jesus being God: John 10:30 But if I do his work, believe in the evidence of the miraculous works I have done, even if you don't believe me. Then you will know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father. John 10:30 The Father and I are one. 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity-the man Jesus Christ. It is written in Matthew, Mark , Luke, John and Acts of Jesus's death and resurrection. He had to die so we, if we believe in Him, will receive eternal life. His hands and side were pierced, and He showed Himself to His disciples and others after He has been raised. Then, He accended into Heaven, and He WILL come back on the clouds to take home His ppl and to establish His New Jerusalem. You asked me if I knew what ''jannat'' and falah means. It seems to me you aren';t really sure yourself what those words mean, since you said ''some kind of good news I think. Please answer me this question: If Islam is a peaceful religion, then why is there terrorism all over the middle east, suicide bombers? I have never seen a Christian blow himself up in order to kill others in the process. If you are seeking the truth and have specific questions, I will be glad to seek an answer for you.

There is only one God, Jesus Christ. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. About the quran, I have read some of the quran and find several contradictions, are you even aware of that? Islam versus the Truth of Christ: Islam and Christianity are not ''sister faiths''. Islam instructs its followers to kill their enemies. The Quran says to ''fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them'' (Surah 9:5). But our Holy Bible tells Christ's followers to :'' Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you (Matt. 5:44, kjv) Islam denies Christianity's core truth-the death and resurrection of Jesus. That they said (in boast), We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah'', - but they did not kill him, nor cruzified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for a surety they did not kill him. (Surah 4:157 Not only does the Quran deny Christ's deity, but also, as we see in the verse from the Quran above, it puts a curse on all who confess Jesus Christ as the son of God. Islam brings Jesus Christ lower than Muhammad, making him no more than a messenger. There is no other God but Jesus Christ. He said in John 14:6, I'am the way, the truth and the life.
