islam has no savior from sin

According to Islam, no one died and rose from the grave for us.

No one paid the price for us to be reconciled to a loving God.

No one rose from the dead on our behalf, overcoming sin and death.

Allah has done nothing to overcome death and that is why there is no assurance of salvation or eternal life in Islam.

The resurrected Jesus said: “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.  Amen.  And I have the keys of death and Hades.“  (Revelation 1:18)

The greatest proof that Jesus is exactly who He said He was—the Son of God and the Way of salvation—is His resurrection from the dead.  “This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.“  (Acts 2:32)  His disciples never would have risked their lives to spread a false hope.  You don’t die for a lie.

His disciples were convinced that He was the Savior.  His miracles, His sinless life, and His teachings all proved to them that He was sent from God.  But it was His resurrection which confirmed beyond a shadow of doubt who He was.

The amazing thing is that Jesus put everything on the line by declaring beforehand that He would die and be raised to life again.  He foretold His own resurrection on several occasions.  “And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.”  (Mark 8:31)

Matthew records an angel telling Joseph to give Christ the name ‘Jesus’ and then explains why:

“Then Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly.  But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’”  (Matthew 1:19-21)

To understand the connection between Jesus’ name and his work of saving people from their sins, we need to keep in mind that Jesus’ Hebrew name is Yeshua, which essentially means “Yahweh is salvation.”  The angel was basically informing Joseph to name Jesus “Yahweh is salvation” as a way of identifying Him as The Savior sent by Jehovah God.

Matthew isn’t the only Gospel writer who records an angel labeling Jesus as Savior.  ”Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  (Luke 2:9)

Jesus himself taught that he came to offer his life as a ransom and to shed his blood in order to procure redemption and purge every sin: ”the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”  (Matthew 20:28)

The main reason Islam has no Savior is because Muhammad is still in the grave.  He is buried at the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina, Saudi Arabia.  Millions of followers visit it every year as part of their pilgrimage to Mecca.

Allah did not have the power to raise Muhammad up.  It takes Jehovah God–The Living God–to perform the Easter miracle.

Politics.

Dono much about politics but I do have an opinion or two

Religions.

All religions are not same. Religions are exclusive, not inclusive. Each religion's claims are radically different in some aspects while similar in some other aspects. As far as religions are concerned, all roads do not lead to the same destination. Just like the word 'science' is a general/broader term but each branch of Science is vast, deep, and different; so are the claims/ideologies of each religion. I am a seeker of the truth, willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads.

Science

Science is materialistic.

Culture

Culture is where society is.
