Sin and Forgiveness in Christianity and Islam
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Mankind and Jinns and all that exists, and peace be upon the Master of the Messengers, his family and companions.
The followers of Christianity have been making tremendous efforts to spread their dubious beliefs all over the world, especially the Islamic world. They have got various means that help them propagate their deceptive falsehoods, such as offering medical and educational services, humanitarian aid to those suffering from disasters and catastrophes, etc. Such efforts are usually accompanied by religious ceremonies, Christian propaganda, priestly conducts and numerous theological words and slogans. Besides, some practices of a strange nature are performed in such a manner as to give the impression that something reasonable and serious is being presented to the layman who is supposed to believe that Christianity is based upon great fundamentals and practices which aim at saving mankind.
Christians claim that their belief is constructed upon pillars of tolerence, love, mercy, sympathy and self-denial for the sake of others; and their belief and all efforts at the end aim for the happiness and salvation of human beings from sins and getting them into the Kingdom of God, claiming that Christianity is the only way leading to paradise.
Eternal happiness – sin and forgiveness in christianity and islam
Furthermore, they also insist that their beliefs and efforts will eventually and inevitably lead mankind to eternal happiness through salvation which will free man from sins and take him into the Divine Kingdom of God where Christians only are admitted.
However, the truth is far away from what they claim. Two of the amazingly strange things they believe in are (1) the idea of the so-called “original sin and forgiveness”, the sin that has been inherited by all mankind from Adam (peace be upon him), and (2) forgiveness of this sin through crucifixion.
They also believe that all other religions are false and groundless since none of these grants man the privilege of salvation through the belief in the idea of crucifixion; thus non-Christians are not qualified to enter paradise.

1) The Origin of Sins in Christianity:
The story of human sin, according to the Old Testament, begins with Adam (peace be upon him) who lived with Eve in Eden, tending the Garden of God. They were permitted to eat from all trees in the garden except from the Tree of Good and Evil. But a serpent persuaded Eve to eat fruit from that forbidden tree. Eve gave some to Adam, who also
ate the fruit. As a result, they became mortal and God expelled them from Eden. Christian and Jews claim that Adam was seduced by both Eve and the serpent who persuaded him that the forbidden tree was the Tree of Knowledge, and if he ate its fruit, he would be given transcendental knowledge. Christians claim that God, believing Adam would be His rival after acquiring knowledge of the invisible world, became wrathful and uttered imprecations against Adam who was sent down to Earth.
Christians believe that Adam’s sin is the mother of all sins. It had remained closely connected to his descendants for ages until the incident of crucifixion occurred. They also believe that evil first existed and then spread all over the world because of Adam’s misconduct. In addition, they attribute all sorts of human conflicts and wars to this sin.
The story of crucifixion has always been a source of controversy among Christian leaders who sometimes charge each other with infidelity and atheism.
The most influential of all Christian Apostles was Paul who basically established the doctrines of Christianity known today, especially those related to
Crucifixion: – SIN AND FORGIVENESS IN CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
Belief in crucifixion is central to Christianity. According to Paul, crucifixion is the corner stone for all Christian Beliefs, and those who deny it are not considered Christians and do not deserve God’s blessings. They cannot enter the Kingdom of God or transcend to glory. They will be destined to eternal torture in Hell for being disobedient to Jesus Christ.
What is the content of this idea? Where did it come from?
The content of this idea is found in some of Paul’s epistles to the Romans, Corinthians and Hebrews. He claimed that Christ was not betrayed and crucified by his enemies (the Romans and the Jews) because of the threat he posed to their beliefs and secular powers, but he willingly chose to be humiliated and crucified as a kind of atonement for people’s sins, liberating them from the original sin committed by their father, Adam, who ate from the forbidden tree.
