Is Islam a universal religion? | Yes; sure it is

Islam claimed that it has been sent to all human beings.
And it is a fact that Islam has spread in all the countries of the world. I don’t think there is any country in the world where Muslims don’t live.

Simple concepts; easy to practice religion.

  1. Hank Kimball Says:

    One organized religion, teaches that, according to the bibles scriptures, all conscious beings are living souls. Also, that all living souls do NOT live on after death; Genesis 1:20-21 “And God went on to say: “Let the waters swarm forth a swarm of living souls and let flying creatures fly over the earth upon the face of the expanse of the heavens.” And God proceeded to create the great sea monsters and every living soul that moves about, which the waters swarmed forth according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to its kind.”

    Also in Genesis 1:24; ‘And God went on to say: “Let the earth put forth living souls according to their kinds, domestic animal and moving animal and wild beast of the earth according to its kind.” And it came to be so.’

    Notice the scripture says “living souls”. The soul is not separate from the body. Claiming that it is separate from the body is stating that all live is immortal, so therefore did not become created, but always WAS.

    Further, this is how the bible claims man WAS CREATED. Notice at Genesis 2:7; “And God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul.”
    Again, A LIVING SOUL.

    This is some of the scriptures on death, Ecclesiastes 9:5;”For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten”
    Proverbs 16:25; “There exists a way that is upright before a man, but the ways of death are the end of it afterward..
    ONLY GOD has the Power to bring a soul back to consciousness AFTER death.

    Notice John 5:24-25; “Most truly I say to ​YOU, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life, and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.“Most truly I say to ​YOU, The hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who have given heed will live”

    It only makes sense, IF I believe the bible, that IF God’s statement to Adam that he will surely die in the DAY that he eats from the tree of Knowledge of good and evil, his dying has begun the moment he eats from it. If a religion is claiming man’s soul does live on after death, THAT religion is making the same claim Satan made to Eve. It calls God a liar. All worldly religions, save ONE, claim that very thing. Talk about blasphemy!

    This religion is TRULY organized. Can the following be said about ANY other religion?— On ANY given Sunday, ALL across the world, the SAME PRECISE bible truths are being revealed in each and every congregation. i.e. If a congregation in Paris, France is discussing ” Having come to know God, Now what?”; EVERY SINGLE congregation in the WORLD is studying the same precise topic, out of the bible. Matthew 24:45; “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?”

    It is obvious IF a religion is getting it’s spiritual food from 1 source, Almighty God, it would logically follow that ALL congregations would ALL be getting the same PRECISE information at the same time. Remember it is critical to “keep on the watch” as Jesus said.

    Workers of Lawlessness? What is Jesus referring to? Notice in Matthew 7:22-23; “Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew ​YOU! Get away from me, ​YOU​ workers of lawlessness”

    Imagine that! Many (a religion or religions), will be prophesying in Jesus name, AND they will be expelling demons too, along with “many powerful works”. Sounds very ATTRACTIVE to many people in this system of things. Sounds like an “angel of light” that Satan keeps transforming himself into. WOW, this statement Jesus makes caused me to see the constant worldly claims of many religions. Claims they make, no doubt, to be praised by man. They have their reward already.

    A love for God and truth must grow in the heart of a man. We can not afford to be seduced by miraculous events. This cannot be the attraction in joining a religion.

    Notice at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “Let no one seduce ​YOU​ in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction. He is set in opposition and lifts himself up over everyone who is called “god” or an object of reverence, so that he sits down in the temple of The God, publicly showing himself to be a god.”

    My friend, I know you do not know me. I don’t know you. You may be offended or feel I am lost believing the bible is the word of God. My only reason for sharing bible truths with you is because it is my responsibility to spread the Good News.
    I do know ONE thing about you, by your enthusiasm. You are a seeker of truth.

    Some where a man has to take a stand. NO book including the bible is perfect. This is not because it is written by man. It is because of the preconceived ideas people have about what is true prior to ANY scriptural investigation. It is because man measures perfection with absolutely NO living proof of it.

    I, personally, do not believe that because you do not believe as the bible teaches, you will not have eternal life. God judges the heart of a man, AND his works.NO MAN on earth can say ‘this man God will not grant eternal life to; or, this man he will’. It would be arrogant upon me to make such statements about God’s decisions.

    My love for you is. There is NO way I cannot feel this way in light of all you have shared about your search in truth, and your honest desire that all be armed with the facts about the here and hereafter. May the Grace of God be with you always paarsurrey!

    Thanks for the appreciation.

    By the way; have you studied the Quran?
