redemption

In a conflictual – what a surprise 🙂 ! – theological discussion between the Islam and Christian doctrines, my fellow discussion partner concluded that it will be good to make me shift to Islam since this way will also redeem himself. Not related with Islam or with my friend, this belief is widely wrongfully spread also between Christians.

However things are not how they first seems like. The redemption is not a followup, a bonus awarded for your belief, but the cause of the effect on the others. You cannot lead to salvation others if you didn’t already redeemed yourself, a blind cannot lead another blind. So only when you discovered the path to soul salvation, you can help others directing them on the right way.
