A response to

Jesus is God's servant

Al-Kadhi tells us that Jesus is not God's Son, but that in fact He is God's servant. What is the difference, when He died for sins, and rose from the dead?

To argue about titles is proud, and blinds us to the essential question, how shall we return to God?

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Of slaves and sons, Jesus said, "Anyone who sins is a slave to sin, and a slave has no permanent place in the family. But the sons do. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed."

The message Jesus brought from God was love. Judge for yourselves whether this is truth. And love is free, or it cannot be love. We did not earn the love God revealed to us on the cross. We simply open our hearts and accept it, acknowledging that we need it. To deny the cross is to be ignorant of God's nature which is love. He did not spare His most beloved Messiah, but gave Him as a sacrifice for sins, even as Abraham was told to give up his beloved offspring, Isaac.
