What other prophets pointed to themselves as the solution other than Jesus? Mohammed, for example, points away from himself. Jesus tells us to come to him for life.
Also, while Islam is massive, Jesus' teachings are based on love; love your neighbour as yourself, love your enemy etc.
Faith isn't based on sight. Faith is based on promises. But the Bible tells us that a deposit of such promises is placed in the heart of a person who chooses to enter into a relationship with Jesus.
Christians don't insist on faith, the Bible does. And if the Bible is the Word of God, then this insistence comes from Jesus himself.
Even if all of this stuff about Jesus is a probability rather than hard, evidence-based fact, I just wonder if it bears close, personal examination, because if it's true, if we can have life and life to the full through Christ right now, plus eternal life as a guarantee, then it's serious stuff.
Romans 5: 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we a have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we b rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we c also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
