I have a question, is it haram to do the thing that Christians do when they do the cross on their chest? I have seen a few Shias do it on social media to show that we don't have a problem with christians and stuff but is it haram to do it? If you don't know what I am talking about I am talking its the thing where they touch their left shoulder then their right then their forehead.
The reason I am not a Muslim or a Shia is because I can't find any evidence for the claim six centuries later that Jesus didn't go to the cross to overturn the eyewitness testimony of the Apostles in various group settings in the first century sources. Would God ask you to overlook the evidence and believe what Muhammad said? As well, I know that I was a sinner and sin leads to death and the second death which is Hell an eternal separation from God. And that no man by his own strength or works can bridge the gap between and infinitely great God and himself. Therefore, it stands to reason, God must intervene by entering into His creation to atone for the sins of the world that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Not only, therefore, have I been forgiven for all sins I have ever committed, but God also brings me to the cross with Jesus to die to my old man. God doesn't go after the root of sin or place us into asceticism by depraving the body, but goes after our old man so that Satan can't work in Christians for that which has died is dead. Biblically "dead" refers to lost communication. My spirit has been quickened with God's life and is no longer dead.
