Dan, Chris, and I met at Redcliffe on Sunday ready to spread God's Word to the people of Redcliffe. It looked like it was raining on Stradbroke Island, so the Whale Watching boat came in earlier than usual. There would have been over 200 people on board so we managed to give gospel tracts to them all as they left the boat. There was even a person who received the tract that was reading the gospel message on the back really loudly as they strolled down the Jetty.

Redcliffe Jetty

I had a pleasant chat with a Muslim fellow about how one gets to Heaven. I showed the man that if God is to remain always just, He cannot just forgive someone's sins without the fine being paid. In the Hadith it says that if someone becomes a Muslim, Allah automatically forgives a person's sins committed before they were a Muslim. This man denied that this was so. So I asked him if he knew about the unforgivable sin within Islam called Shirk. That is, to associate anyone with Allah. He did know about it, so I pointed out that if Allah does not forgive the sins of Muslims before they converted, then no Christian could ever convert to Islam and go to Heaven. But the man said, "Oh yeah, Allah forgives Shirk if someone converts to Islam." Hence, Allah is not always a just judge because the fine is not paid. Meaning, the god that the Qur'an describes does not exist, as Allah is also claimed to be always just. But that is an internal contradiction.

Many gospel tracts went out and good one to one conversations were held. To God be the glory!
