in the Quran Surah 3:3 say
"He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel."
Does Mean you believe in the Torah ( 1st 5 books of the Holy Scriptures) and the Gospels (Matthew,Mark,Luke and John). would this be our common ground or its referencing another Torah and Gospel I'm not familiar with?
For me personally Going up in what I would Call a "Hood" Low income high crime rate area I was subject to a high level of Trama in my life that resulted in alot of Mental Health Issues Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, and High level of paranoia which often lead to suicidal thoughts. I wasnt religious at all and had no spiritual understanding. I Can sayin in the last 5 years of learning about the Spiritual Side of life and applying Bible principles I've completely got rid of Anxiety and Paranoia I...
I think we can choose to do things but I also believe we are not free to do what we want.
Does that make sense?
So I've been a mess intellectually. All over the map. Normal reading has led me to meditation. Simple stuff. Stop for 5 minutes and focus on your breath... when you find yourself distracted and off on some tangent no judgement... just go back to the breath. Try to take control of what your mind focuses on. I want to focus on that time period... Five minutes.
I don't know about...
Global Flood evidence:
1.Vast herds, comprising perhaps millions of grazing animals, discovered within the muck fields by gold hunters in the Alaskan and Yukon regions. In the Siberian permafrost, a few have been discovered upright, with food (delicate flowers like buttercups, that only grow in temperate climates) discovered still unchewed in their mouths, like the Berezovka Mammoth. (They died instantly, not from a slow-moving ice age!)
As Christians tell their story, god has heaven and hell waiting for us after we die. Which one we end up in depends either on our works (the Catholic belief) or the grace of god (the Protestant belief). Plus, both require accepting Jesus Christ as one's savior, which essentially consists of coming to god/Jesus to be saved, repenting, having faith, and being baptized.
Do all these things and there's a good chance you'll avoid hell and end up in heaven, an exceedingly more desirable place...
When we look at various major Religions, we find that, always there are disagreements if a Leader is truly chosen by God or not.
For example, Jews expect the Messiah, but they did not agree with Christian view, who believed Jesus was the true Messiah.
Likewise, Muslims believe Muhammad was a promised One by Jesus but Christians do not see it that way.
Same disagreements are seen with regards to the Bab and Bahaullah, as the promised Ones of other Religions.
Even, within Islam, there was a...
I am reading the Quran, Gospel, Psalms, Tora, BoMormon, Avesta and i wonder if the Vedas are also...I wonder if the Vedas are also inspired by the One and Only God, our Father, who created the Heavens and the Earth, your God, my God, the God of everything and everyone.
Now i am reading a translation, but the translation is polytheistic. And i don't trust translations, because 99% of the translations that i saw of different religious Holy Books were sectarian and polytheistic.
So my question is. Does someone know Sanskrit? And could he explain if the Book is Monotheistic?
I am already...
Scripture says " Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
Like so many other verses in the Bible, "he will give you the desires of your heart" does not mean " he will give you the desires of your heart."
Sort of like "ask anything of the father in my name and it will be given to you" doesn't mean what it says.
So many other places in the Bible, it doesn't mean what it says. Since the Bible is so famous for not meaning what it says, how do you know which verses...
