So you understand the reasons behind it. But the reason I came onto this thread is because I don't like the way Christians in general explain the
whole process of original sin and tie it to Jesus shedding blood on the cross.
To me, the reasoning behind creating mankind with imperfections was to allow man to see that s/he is not Lord of things. That s/he HAS to depend on
God and find humility and reason to worship God. But I have a problem with the way Christianity explains it as: it was necessary so we believe in
Jesus's shedding blood on the cross. Whereas in Islam it is said that it was necessary so mankind could ask for forgiveness the minute s/he err'ed or
went against the orders of God. Which is what Adam did, so we're told. In this I believe Christians leave debate material for atheists who having seen
the time difference between Jesus's blood shed and the creation of Adam, have the right to ask you: so WHY did God wait so long to shed blood? get my
drift? There are other debates going on as well, in reality I believe these inconsistencies turn people from God simply because what they are told,
within Christianity, does not make sense.
The atheist propaganda has very strong tools working for them right now, among them is the belief some Christians have that God is a dude sitting in
heaven, that God preferred to have a son and not a daughter, that God somehow came down and shed blood to cover what He created Himself. These are all
one and tied to the same thing I believe. And its the kind of 'lost or twisted information' we Muslims refer to when we speak of Christian
I haven't actively started a debate on this since most people consider it an attack on their faith, but this is an open debate and something I'm
trying to understand when conversing with Christians in general.
Thanks for reading!
