Muhammad is one of the most influential humans to have ever lived.
Through him a religion formed denying the God of the popular Christianity, which at that time is remarkable.
Today Muhammad is the most common first name in the world.
Regardless of his intent he was able to form a huge following that still claims he was a perfect being and example to live by.
Yet, he was a military war leader who led many bloody battles. He did the dirty with a 9 year old. He had more women than Hugh...
Do you regard these concepts as virtually synonymous or distinct in kind?
Often, I find that people conflate the two as if they were the same. Exclusivist religions and people who hold exclusivist views, are deemed to be "intolerant" whereas inclusive or syncretic belief systems are deemed to be tolerant.
Looking at history, however, leads me to question if this is always the case. Indeed, exclusivism and intolerance have often coincided - one need only think of the Spanish Inquisition,...
It is the belief of Shi Islam that a day will come when the Mahdi will appear along with Jesus and fill the earth with peace and justice once and for all.
Regardless of your current beliefs, if such an event occurred and the Prophecies were clearly fulfilled along with the supernatural events and miracles, will you believe in the Mahdi and join him or will you oppose him. And why?
So I am currently a 21 year old in college and I am on top of my academics, never do drugs/drink and have a great social life. However, I have had a bad habit of masturbating ever since I was in the 9th grade. I can remember definitively that I have always had a guilty consciousness after I did it and have made numerous attempts to stop. I swore to god multiple times saying that I would stop, thinking to myself that, that should enough of an incentive to quit. However, I...
Is there really any such thing, or is this a mythology? I believe it is a created myth in order to bolster an image of authority to a particular set of beliefs and values, typically conservative/fundamentalist in nature. It is a moniker created as a political slogan in order to create a sense of validity and authority to their specific views."It's not my words, but God's!", which is of course a false position for any human to say. Everything read from the Bible, is subjective to personal or...
Hi guys, much as happened within our society over the past few years. Many have claimed one side or the other when it comes to homosexuality and the Bible. In this video, I give some statements about each side of the scope and discuss them a bit. I hope it help and maybe gives a new perspective.
The traditional Christian view is that Jesus was celibate. If he was indeed a regular human as part of the Trinity, remaining celibate his entire life was one of his greatest miracles. Or was Jesus was gay, given his comments about his relationship to his "beloved disciple," traditionally associated with the John and his speech about two men in bed and two women grinding together (Luke 17:34-35),
Came across the following decree in Numbers
11 Then the Lord said to Moses, 12 “Tell the Israelites this: A man’s wife might be unfaithful to him. 13 She might have sexual relations with another man and hide this from her husband. And there might not be anyone to tell him that his wife committed this sin. Her husband might never know about the wrong thing she did, and she might not tell her husband about her sin. 14 But the husband might begin to think that his wife...
