How To Get Born Again (part four)
Will this Jihad truly get anyone to the heaven of the True Creator?
“In Buddhism there are several Heavens, all of which are still part of samsara (illusionary reality). Those who accumulate good karma may be reborn in one of them. However, their stay in Heaven is not eternal—eventually they will use up their good karma and will undergo rebirth into another realm, as a human, animal or other being. Because Heaven is temporary and part of samsara, Buddhists focus more on escaping the cycle of rebirth and reaching enlightenment (nirvana). Nirvana is not a heaven but a mental state” (from Wikipedia). The Bible says categorically, “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11). Heaven is an everlasting joy. Buddhism cannot get you born again.
One of the heavens of Buddhism?
“Heaven is said to see, hear and watch over all men. Heaven is affected by man’s doings, and having personality, is happy and angry with them. Heaven blesses those who please it and sends calamities upon those who offend it. Heaven was also believed to transcend all other spirits and gods, with Confucius asserting, “He who offends against Heaven has none to whom he can pray” (from Wikipedia).
‘In Islam if one’s good deeds outweigh one’s sins then one may gain entrance to Heaven. Conversely, if one’s sins outweigh their good deeds they are sent to hell. The more good deeds one has performed the higher the level of Heaven one is directed to. It has been said that the lowest level of Heaven, the first one, is already over one-hundred times better than the greatest life on Earth. The highest level is the seventh Heaven. Houses are built by angels for the occupants using solid gold’ (Wikipedia).
Getting born again is not of a man’s doing. This is what the Bible says in John 3:6, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” Spiritual ignorance has enabled satanic influences as it is alluded to in Jude 1:19, “These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”
It is either that Mohammed knew that it is the finished work of Jesus or, no heaven, or worse still, that he is totally oblivious of the Truth: the Lord Jesus. He called Jesus by His title ‘Christ’ eleven times in the Qur’an, which he attributed to none else. The Christ is the Saviour! Amen! I do see the possibility of Mohammed’s Islamic mission of deceit.
Some Qur’anic verses are given for elucidation. “If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female – and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them” (An-Nisa 124).
Chapter 3:142 “Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those of you who fought hard (In His Cause) and remained steadfast?” Qur’an 2:216 says, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
The At-Tawba, which is the 9th chapter in the 81st verse says, “Those who were left behind (in the Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their inaction behind the back of the Messenger of Allah: they hated to strive and fight, with their goods and their persons, in the cause of Allah: they said, “Go not forth in the heat.” Say, “The fire of Hell is fiercer in heat.” If only they could understand!” The last part of chapter 4, called Mohammad quotes, “… But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”
This is the true expectation of devout Muslims!
Allah’s Qur’an admits to heaven based on man’s righteousness and war mongering prowess. One Hadith, according to G.J.O. Moshay, says each Muslim (especially if he had fought very well on earth for the cause of Allah), would be entitled to 500 houris, 4,000 virgins and 8,000 non-virgins -12,000 women- in his book, “Who is this Allah?” Sura 44:54, “So; and We shall join them to fair women with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.” What kind of women? They are found in sura 55:56, “In them will be (Maidens), chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or Jinn before them has touched.” Mohammedan heaven is a place of abundant food, wine and a marathon of sex! Even demons will have their own demoness wives!
‘According to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of Ahmadiyya sect in Islam, the soul will give birth to another rarer entity and will resemble the life on this earth in the sense that this entity will bear a similar relationship to the soul, as the soul bears relationship with the human existence on earth. On earth, if a person leads a righteous life and submits to the will of God, his or her tastes become attuned to enjoying spiritual pleasures as opposed to carnal desires. With this, an “embyonic soul” begins to take shape’ (Remember Isaiah 64:6?).
‘The heavenly beings are referred to as devas (masculine form) and devis (feminine form). According to Jainism, there is not one heavenly abode, but several layers to reward appropriately the souls of varying degree of karmic merits’ (Wikipedia).
Karma is plainly of esotericism. It does not share the divine mind of God’s word, the Bible.
Get truly born again by saying this sinners’ prayer: “Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
Jesus never used forceful conversion
