Post Post subject: Does God accept righteous works even when we sin? Reply with quote

Islamic scholars say that God is able to overlook and/or forgive sins when accompanied by righteous works. Muslim scholars explain that God does not punish because God?s mercy exceeds his justice, when it is also accompanied by faith in Islam.
    But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and believe in the (Revelation) sent down to Muhammad - for it is the Truth from their Lord,- He will remove from them their ills and improve their condition. Quran 47:2

    Those who believe and work righteous deeds,- from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them, and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds. Quran 29:7


In the Surah 3:84 below we see God does not make a distinction between any of his revelations.
    We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them - Quran 3:84.


According to the Prophets and the Injeel, we see

    All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags." (Prophets - Isa. 64:6)

    Whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it!" (Injeel - Jam. 2:10)

Question to consider:
Is the Bible and the Quran saying the same thing about good works capable of paying for evil deed?
