That was a powerful video.
The Hebrews made the same mistake with the Torah. They took the laws of God and applied them to a set of standards called the Halakha. The pharisees
were condemned by Jesus for their strict view of the law against mankind. In reality, the law as a guardian
3) for mankind to show that we are incapable of
pleasing God apart from loving others. When we choose to love self over others, then our judgment from God is the consequence that follows us into
our own final judgment. Apart from loving God and others, we are left with the judgment of the law. Men are not to be the judges.
The Quran is very clear on its pronouncement of judgment on the unbeliever. The unbeliever is defined by their messenger Jesus: To be considered a
believer, a person must love God and love their neighbor--even their enemies. This is found in Luke 10. A believer must bless those who curse them
and pray for those who persecute them. The true believer must not judge his brother. In the same manner that we judge others, we will be judged.
Unless we forgive and cover the sins of others in life, our own sins will not be covered in the day of judgment. This was Jesus message to mankind.
Sharia law is not the law of God, but the law of man.
Justice and mercy are a reflection of God's law, which demands that we deal with the law fairly and equally. Those who follow the law must be
preserved from those who do not follow the law. This is true. How do we view Sharia law? It can only be described as law that neither preserves the
dignity of others or reflects equity of all men and women. It is a double standard and creates hypocritical treatment and duplicity. Just laws are
equitable to all. Unjust laws treat people with inequity.
We will be judged in the same manner that we judge others. If we judge others by the intent of the law, we judge righteously. If we judge others
according to our own righteousness, we judge ourselves. God's law demands love and equity for all. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the
few. When the few rule the many, inequity rules the day. The wicked light the fire they burn by. The righteous are the light to others.
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
