Lesson from Islam Convert

In the CNN article "Rejecting radical Islam -- one man's journey", a man named Daveed Gartenstein-Ross is quoted as saying about Islam "he saw the religion which he had embraced for its tolerance become obsessed with rules and ideology."

Point: Works based salvation always tends toward licentiousness, legalism, or both (inconsistently).

Solution: Grace salvation rather than works salvation. Grace based righteousness rather than works based righteousness.

Perhaps others can learn a lesson from Daveed before becoming entwined in Islam's net.
