Recently, I have been reading one of the books in The Old Testament pseudepigrapha: The Life of Adam and Eve.
My attention is drawn to:
Also, keep in mind "worship" refers to "bow", not literal worship that I know of.
But Eve heard and believed and went out of the water of the river, and her flesh was (trembling) like grass, from the chill of the water. And when she had gone out, she fell on the earth and the devil raised her up and led her to Adam. But when Adam had seen her and the...
I've heard it said a number of times by Muslims that Jews are planning (late at night at the yearly graveyard gathering no doubt) to build a Temple/synagogue on the Temple Mount currently occupied by al Aqsa Mosque. I thought I would take the time to make a thread about some of the reasons that this couldn't be true.
1. Israel is a secular state. Its Jewish nature is cultural not religious. Its hard enough to get them to clear a plot to build a synagogue anywhere else in the country, let...
Mr Trump was in the news recently threatening to keep out muslims from the US - he wants to hold a religious test in which muslims will automatically fail. But change the word US to Heaven and isn't it what religions like Christianity and Islam have been saying for centuries now? Heaven is segregated by religion, God will hold a religious test - you get a pass only if you are a Christian or Muslim, respectively, and others like us Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists are turned away - worse, we must...
And creationists say there's no such thing as evolution.
"No lions and tigers were on Noah’s Ark. Instead, God brought one pair of every“kind.”
At least 38 living (shown here) and 36 extinct cats descended from this original pair!"
"Cats of the Cataclysm
The cat kind provides a great example of the diversity God placed within the created kinds. Many Ark illustrations show lions, tigers, and other large cats boarding the Ark, but this concept is mistaken. All of these large cats are...
We have all heard and read accounts from different religions about the supposedly enlightened or divinely inspired people who preach new religions to their people and claim that they are "guiding" them to the "truth." What is also common is that we are put in the shoes of the preacher of the new religion, not the receiver thereof. Therefore, I think it is worth exploring the perspective of the disbelievers—or the kuffar, in Islamic terms.
Imagine there were a charismatic, sociable fellow...
If Satan is Evil, why did one third of the Angels of heaven take his side in the fight against the Archangel Michael.
That is a vast number, he must of had something going they agreed with.
He was Lucifer, the most beautiful and greatest of all the Angels, he sat besides God, yet God failed to notice this Evil.
Surely he did not along with the other one third become Evil overnight.
If someone were considering converting to your religion or philosophy, or has only just recently converted to it, what advice would you give them? Are there any common mistakes or mis-understandings to avoid? Or is there something extra that can make it easier and smooth the path to understanding and enlightenment?
As a Satanist, I hate people who claim Islam is Satanic.
It offends me because I don't want people to think the Satanic Philosophy I live by is associated with Islam.
Muslim people are also offended when you claim their religion is Satanic.
I'm not saying there is anything wrong with Islam, but Satanism and Islam are 2 different religions from 2 different paths. Islam is a Right-Hand Path religion while Satanism is a Left-Hand Path religion.
Right-Hand Path religions...
