Default Re: Muhammed or Jesus?

peace D,

Faith is stressed because Jesus' only mission was to bring it into the focus again after being long ignored by the Jews, for the Jews focused on the deeds, the rituals and lost the meaning, the faith.

For example, Jesus and the Jews argue alot about the Sabbath, which was originally made for them to stop seeking material things and seek God alone instead, for one day, they took the Sabbath to an extreme and even refused to do righteous work on that day, a clear example of loosing faith and meaning, and focusing on the physical practices.

As for the people who don't know about God, how could that be? i believe even on the most rempote island in the pacific the primitive tribes know in their hearts about God, perhaps they give Him a different name, but the instinct in all of us is that God exists.

[7:172] Recall that your Lord summoned all the descendants of Adam, and had them bear witness for themselves: "Am I not your Lord?" They all said, "Yes. We bear witness." Thus, you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection, "We were not aware of this."

So we are all born already with this knowledge, the prophets and the books bring it to the forefront.

As for what God cannot do? Nothing.
