So, the Quran states that the Jews did not crucify nor kill Jesus, but Allah took Him up to Himself.
I would like to get answer on this from:
1. Christians who believe in Bible. What was Muhammads purpose of rejecting crucifixion and what goal was He seeking by this? Please state your reasoning and evidences.
2. Those who are atheists or followers of other religions than Islam or Christianity. What was Muhammad intention of rejecting crucifixion?
3. Muslims. For Muslims, I am...
Just a thought for the day, brought to us by another; not me.
If we brought all of the religious writings, and everything religion-related together on one day, and destroyed them, while simultaneously erasing the memories of all religions from every person on the planet......
and at the exact same time, we gather all scientific journals and documents and books and recordings and memories from every person on the planet, and we also destroyed them......
.....Then 1000 years later, all of the...
The search for the historical Jesus is well known to be one of the most problematic issues in Religious Studies - it's really hard to figure out exactly what, if anything, can be safely asserted about the historical Jesus.
What are you guys' opinions?
Did he exist?
What was he like?
What did he do and say?
The Bible healer medical research and determined spatial studies of the past.
Correlated and written after the fact of the attack/sacrifice of natural life x multi male, human/female and animal life, plus the attack on the Garden nature.
As the first original theme....where science as its own invention began....and its cause and effects as an attack/conversion of natural life on Earth.
A medical science account.
As heard after the fact.
As seen after the fact.
This church decided it could no longer grow without kicking out all the older people.
They want new younger people in, and are starting to play different more pop music too I understand.
Well hallelujah, why don't they just kill off their folks after they get old?
A church made headlines for allegedly asking older members to leave. But the reality is more complicated - CNN
I see one of the greatest dangers of social media unfolds in the pernicious act of backbiting. Backbiting is one of the greatest spiritual errors any person can make. It has long lasting negative effects.
In all Faiths, they show us how to make ourselves better and not concentrate on errors that we see others may have. In the Bible it says we should "remove the plank from one's own eyes before trying to remove a splinter from another's eye."
So when will this stop?
Do you post or share...
The Christian scriptures make the claim that "Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins." Hebrews 9:22 This is a great part of their reasoning for the necessity of Jesus as the sacrifice for all sins.
The problem is, this assumption is quite mistaken so far as the Tanakh (what Christians mistakenly call the "old" testament) is concerned. Let's look at what the Tanakh has to say.
1. From the TORAH: Although commandments are given to make blood sacrifices for various...
I'm watching The Land Before Time, parts 1-7 or so, on account of missing my cat, and needing something mindless. And yes, I can definitely tell you that it is cute and entertaining. I can also tell you that the series is probably not good food for impressionable young minds, since along with dinosaurs, along with talking/singing dinosaurs, along with in at least one episode dinosaurs coexisting with simple mammals like squirrels, the message of the story is the same trite multiculturalism...
Sorry this is long.
I ended up in a heated discussion with someone, whom I think was an atheist and evolutionist, who exclaimed birds came from dinosaurs. I said that I didn't think little, tiny birds evolved from great, big, gigantic dinosaurs and that Oregon State University research showed that a bird's lung development was different from a dinosaur's, i.e. a bird would not be able to breathe and fly if they had lungs like dinosaurs. He came back and insisted, "BIRDS ARE DINOSAURS!" and...
Ismail and "Hajar"
One of the things I noticed in Quran, is that Quran says not a word regarding Hajar who supposedly was a slave of Abraham and Sarah and who Abraham had Ismail through. Somethings to recall is that according to the Torah, Abraham had other children before that, but it was pertaining to the covenant and chosen guides type children he and Sarah were awaiting.
Of course, it's easier to dismiss the importance of Ismail despite clear words praising him in the Torah and the...
