The purpose of this explanation is to show that people of all different cultures/nations believe the Gospel, and that they also are instructed to observe the Law of Moses with their faith (Romans 3:31 ESV).
This article is primarily written for those who may currently be of the Muslim faith, as it demonstrates how a verse (sura) from the Quran is not in agreement with Holy Scripture – as peaceably; all believers become Israelites, and everlasting life is to nation of [believing] Israel alone as per Holy Scripture (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:8, Eph 2:12, 2:19, Gal 6:15-16).
There are extra Biblical texts such the Quran, which may state that there is a different way to everlasting life, and some may sadly use such material as a way to justify their not observing the law of Moses etc. – for example;
‘…For each of you We have assigned a law and a method. Had God willed, He could have made you a single nation, but He tests you through what He has given you. So compete in righteousness….’
(Quran 5:48 Clear Quran)
The following will peaceably show that the above verse (sura) is not what the Gospel instructs, that everlasting life is for those who believe, and that all who believe become citizens of Israel (Eph 2:12, 2:19, Gal 6:15-16).
The Gospel means everlasting life – and is for people of all nations (Genesis 22:18, Galatians 3:16).
This is why we see other Holy Scripture confirming that gentiles (people of the nations who are not Jewish), believe and recieve newness by G-d’s Holy Spirit;
‘…the Gentiles…. And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, and he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith.’
(Acts 15:7-9 ESV)
We see later that new believers who begin to ‘…turn to God…’ (Acts 15:19 ESV), are instructed to start abstaining from four sinful things to begin with;
‘that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.”
Acts 15:29 ESV
When it says ‘…If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well…’ (Acts 15:29 ESV), this means that by abstaining from these four initial things to begin with – they will be ‘on the right track’.
These new believers then go on to learn more commandments and statutes, and do them as we see it says;
Further, we know this to be true, as the apostle Paul even supported people who were originally born Gentiles who then believed in Christ – in the temple to observe a cleansing statute as per Torah Law (Acts 21:28).
It is well known that gentiles are not allowed in the temple at all, and as the dear unbelieving though zealous Jews did not then understand the Gospel, they thought the Gentiles where still Gentiles, and not converted Israelites who believe in Messiah. This is why they persecuted the apostle Paul.
