We Muslims have been in many debates with Christians about 2 main cases :
How come Islam claims that previous profits including Jesus were Muslims?
Another group confirms without hesitation that Jesus would call Islam a serious heresy.
Let us do a simple practice to find out Jesus's answer from Gospels only.
The answer criteria should be with 2 conditions:
Copy & Past statements from Gospels only
It should be Jesus himself words only from his mouth not somebody Else's words
The Collective Messiah - Isaiah 53
We all know that the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 is the Messiah. So, no argument about it. But then whom did Isaiah have in mind when he wrote chapter 53? In fact, who was in his mind when he wrote the whole book? That's in Isaiah 1:1: "A vision about Judah and Jerusalem." That's the theme of the book of Isaiah: Judah. Or the House of Jacob called by the name Israel from the stock of Judah. (Isa. 48:1)
Now, how about the Suffering Servant? Isaiah...
It might be observed that some cultures hold a preconceived notion that young people are just not interested on the topic of religion. They're too busy doing this, that, or the other thing to be interested in answering the big, tough, philosophical questions of life or developing a life path to address those. Certainly, there is some research to back up the lack of participation in religions by various studies. For example, if you look at these data gathered by PEW Research, folks in the...
Didn't Jesus raise himself?
Doesn't the Son of Man raise all, like the serpent in the desert?
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
The first time I heard of "charging to practice a religion" was when I went to a Santera and she was telling me a bit about the Lukumi faith. You pay for the animals, the clothing, sacred jewelry statues, and statues, etc. People pay over $1,000 towards being a Santera/o and it is a life long devotion. Nothing overnight.
Nichiren Buddhism, the same thing. Except for the sacrament was I think $20.00, the Butsadan a little more, and the candles, flowers, etc. Less than a thousand.
Religion is often defined as being a communal or community affair. We come to this understanding in large part because of the prevailing religions of Western culture. In these same prevailing religions, authority tends to be vested externally in figures such as prophets, texts, and priests. The role of individual exploration is downplayed, and perhaps discouraged. In spite of this, the notion of "religion alone" can still be found in Western religious traditions and is particularly...
Economic conservatives have been saying this for years, that Global Warming is a religion promoting a theocracy with the Socialist State as God and the objective to defeat capitalism. Blind faith strikes once again.
A UN climate change official admits the real reason behind the “global warming” issue:
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not...
The antichrist is mobilizing for the enforcement of his mark. The global climate change movement has not met a halt simply because Donald Trump is in office. Donald Trump is simply giving the power to Christians that are needed, so that with the global climate movement, they can enforce Sunday laws. And not only that, but the climate change movement is moving forward with greater ferocity than ever. The Supreme court is to face off against Juliana vs. United States, in which the lawsuit...
I think it takes four attributes to be a Christian:
1. One must know the religion.
2. One must understand the religion.
3. One believe the religion.
4. And one must do the religion.
And I believe that obtaining these four attributes is very hard to do.
