Rescued by two Muslim men from Pakistan on a rainy day — 3 Comments

  1. Actually, pre-Islamic Arab Christians used “Allah” to refer to God as it is a generic name for God in Arabic.

    Some scholars feel that the word “Allah” is similar to the Hebrew Elohim (Lord/God/Diety) which itself came from “eloah” a semitic word for God.

    “They are still yet only ignorant of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for the sin of mankind on the cross, but they do acknowledge the doctrine of sin and that all humans are sinners. “—-That is not so—Muslims are very aware of Jesus Christ(peace be upon him) as he is mentioned thoroughly in the Quran.—However, Muslims do not have the doctrine of “original sin” (Neither do the Jews)—both Jews and Muslims believe Man is created inherently good. In Islam this is called the “fitra”. Neither Jews nor Muslims believe a sacrifice is required for God to forgive sin—because God is most Compassionate and Most Merciful therefore he forgives sin to those who ask for forgiveness.

    • My friend, the Muslim man did tell me that everyone on earth has sinned. And I know the Bible says:

      And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
      Hebrews 9:22

      In whom we have redemption through His (Jesus Christ’s blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;
      Ephesians 1:7
