THE BIBLE IS NOT THE FINAL AUTHORITY ON RIGHTEOUSNESS THERE ARE OTHERS



The Bible scriptures are no more far reaching or the final authority of sin in the world than any other 4,000 religious books scriptures. Each has their core "thou shall not". Will Muslims suffer from laws from Jesus. Will Hindus suffer from laws from Moses or will Buddhists suffer from laws from Allah. Judaism states, "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy" how many religions will that affect. Islam states, When an unmarried male commits adultery with an unmarried female, they should receive one hundred lashes and banishment for one year. How many religions must abide by that.

There are an abundance of religious laws but how do you choose them when they each comes from a different holy book. You choose your religious laws base upon what seems to be righteous to you. But seldom, if not at all, will you accept laws from another religion. You simply ignore them because the assumption is they didn't come from Jehovah or Jesus. Jehovah and Jesus doesn't corner the market on righteousness.

“My Mercy encompasses all things” (Qur’an 7:156). “My mercy takes precedence over my anger” (hadith qudsi, a saying in which God of Islam speaks through the Prophet). Isn't that worth believing and obeying but it's not Christianity or Judaism. Conclusion: Judaism and Christianity are an authority on righteousness but they are not the final authority unless you believe in them. An identified sin in Christianity is not an identified sin of the entire world because each religion has their core "thou shall not" that doesn't pertain to you because simply you don't want it to.
