A slightly modified version of a reply I left a Muslim who told me that I would lose my soul if I didn’t become a Muslim.
All have sinned...
For there is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin.
Therefore, every disembodied soul that dies in its sin shall be held in Hades until judgement, and this by ‘The Law of Sin and Death’.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
Therefore, the only hope for us sinners bound for Hades until a resurrection unto judgement, and thus a certain sentencing to a place in Hell worthy of our sins... is if someone should redeem us...
7 - None of them can by any means redeem his brother nor give to God a ransom for him
8 - For the redemption of their souls is costly and it shall cease forever.
9 - That he should continue to live eternally and not see the Pit.
But who can do such a thing?
For everyone has sinned, thus are under the same condemnation as us being accountable for their own sin before a Holy God!
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
This is why God sent His only begotten Son into the world, born under the law through the Jewess Mary, that He could first live a sinless life before offering it up as an atoning sacrifice for sin, but not for His own sin for he had never sinned, but for the sins of others as foretold by the Law and the Prophets.
And after the sixty-two weeks [483 yrs]
Messiah [Greek: Christ] shall be cut off [killed], but not for Himself.
Which is why when seeing Jesus, John the baptists said...
“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
God gave His Son as an offering for our sins, the question is...
Will you refuse God’s only provision for the sins of men?
1 John 2:1
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
For if you refuse God’s only sacrifice for sin, it is certain that following your death your soul shall descend immediately to Hades [not hell] below, there to be held-fast by the Law of Sin and Death until you are called to stand at the Judgement of the damned, where having had your sins examined a place in Hell can be found worthy of them and you sentenced there forever.
But this doesn’t have to be, for if you die having been washed from your sins through faith in Christ’s work of redemption upon a Cross foretold by the Law and the Prophets, you shall receive eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Now please Muslim, tell me how, and on what basis shall your god redeem your disembodied soul from Hades and a certain sentencing to Hell for sin, you having spurned His only provision? Even His Son’s death on a Cross.
11 - Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.
12 - And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books [record of sin] were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
13 - The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
14 - Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire [Hell] This is the second death.
15 - And anyone not found written in the Book of Life [those who rejected Christ’s sacrifice] was cast into the lake of fire. [Hell]
