Can we say the same about sharia law?
I agree with you, that is something that can't be said for sharia. Islam doesn't have grace. But Mosiac law doesn't have it either. In that regard they are not different, they both lack grace and ultimately can't save people.
But the difference is that OT law had its purpose. And that purpose was never meant to save. It was meant to point to Christ, correct?
Mosaic law points to grace. Does sharia law?
You are right but to me it makes no difference i would not prefer to live under either mosaic or sharia law.
I agree. And I'd go one step further, and say that I wouldn't prefer to live under any type of theocracy, including a "christianized" America.
Is your county under anything resembling sharia?
No, thank God, there is no sharia law in effect. There are movements who want it in effect, but the govt of Pakistan is strictly against it and has banned all such political and religious groups which want a caliphate or a sharia law. All person demanding such are kept under strict surveillance and usually arrested if they try to take any steps in preaching such with a violent message.
Rick, I agree with you on that because even the separation of the church and state in your country was made stronger only by the fact that Christians like the Danbury baptists, a minority, were being marginalized by major denominations of the church which historically led to Jefferson's famous "...building a wall of separation between Church & State." letter.
