More Muslim shinnanigins! Below is a question I have been asked, any want to attempt to bend their intellect to it?
**Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. **(Isaiah 55:7)
Above verse of the old testament shows that a man could have pardan, before the coming of jesus christ. by doing good works.
But After the coming of jesus christ, God change his system of pardoning. and that system is mentioned in the NEW testament as below;
For all who rely on doing the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the book of the law."Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous one will live by faith. But the law is not based on faith, but the one who does the works of the law will live by them. **Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us **. (Galatians. 3:10-14)
Now the question is very simple, if there is still a need of doing good works for pardoning ourselves, after believing the jesus Crucifiction. then jesus crucifuction is considered as meaningless, and purposeless. because there was already been a way for pardoning ourselves through good works. [before Jesus coming]. (see, Isaiah 55:7)
And if there is no need to do good works after believing on Jesus crucifiction. like written in the new testament Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (Galatians. 3:14) Then my dear christians tell me why Jesus said that;
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17)
