You’ve sinned.

“You’ve sinned so much. So much that it seems like there is no ray of hope of forgiveness anymore. O withered soul, what caused you to do such?…” - I’ll read it later, but tbh this online sermon seems to be a translation of Paul’s doctrine into Islam.

The Protestant, by nature, is a searcher because he depends on his personal interpretation of the Bible and he denies Tradition

“Like the bible, and to apparently an even greater extent, the Qur'an of today cannot be claimed to be a true version of the oldest Qur'an in the world discovered in 1972, written in 705-715 AD, and available to researchers in 1979. There are TREMENDOUS differences, an excellent example of one being an original text of ‘72 grapes’ being changed to the infamous ‘72 virgins’ awaiting the faithful in the afterlife hundreds of years later.

The standard histories of Muhammad and the early development of Islam are based on Islamic literature that dates to the ninth and tenth centuries -- some two centuries or more after the death of Muhammad in 632. Islamic literary sources do not exist for the seventh and eighth centuries, when, according to tradition, Muhammad and his immediate followers lived. All that is preserved from this time period are a few commemorative building inscriptions and assorted coins.

As the researchers meticulously show, the name ‘Muhammad’ first appears on coins in Syria bearing Christian iconography. In this context the name is used as an honorific meaning ‘revered’ or ‘praiseworthy’ and can only refer to Jesus Christ, as Christianity was the predominant religion of the area at this time. This same reference exists in the building inscription of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, built by the caliph `Abd al-Malik.

The implication of these and other findings here presented is that the early Arab rulers adhered to a sect of Christianity. Indeed, evidence from the Koran, finalized at a much later time, shows that its central theological tenets were influenced by a pre-Nicean, Syrian Christianity. Linguistic analysis also indicates that Aramaic, the common language throughout the Near East for many centuries and the language of Syrian Christianity, significantly influenced the Arabic script and vocabulary used in the Koran. Finally, it was not until the end of the eighth and ninth centuries that Islam formed as a separate religion, and the Quran underwent a period of historical development of at least 200 years.

In other words, even should one believe the Qur'an as written by Mohammad is a sacred text, the Qur'an of today is a substantially different book, unqualified to be called the true Qur'an or even a reasonable facsimile. Thus contemporary Islam is complete bullshit based on the false and inaccurate Qur'an in current use by Muslims. Muslims leaders, of course, reject the physical and irrefutable evidence and facts presented.”

DISCOVERY: Oldest Quran Found Has Little Similarity To Modern Version

“Jesus in Islam seems to be a character that doesn't fit in. He has a virgin birth yet God is not his father. The idea of the virgin birth was copied from Christianity whereas it wasn't in the oldest gospel.”

“The idea of Jesus having a virgin birth – This story does not exist in the oldest Gospel Mark, but actually appears later on in the gospel of Matthew and Luke. When we look at the 4 gospels in order from oldest (Mark) to newest, we see how Jesus goes from barely a hint of being God in Mark to ‘In the beginning Jesus was God’ in John which is the last gospel. If it was clear that Jesus had a virgin birth, why didnt Mark mention it? Why was it not mentioned until Matthew, 70 years after the supposed event.

This idea of virgin birth has been around in antiquity, Horus in ancient Egypt being born to the virgin Isis and many other stories. This is how religions come about, they copy each other.

Muhammad took an idea that was invented to promote Jesus being God (having a virgin birth) and included it in the Quran.”

To Hear or Be Heard

“‘Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth.’ (2 Timothy 2:25 NLT)

James echoes this thought when he says the wisdom of God is first of all pure and kind and adds, ‘Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.’ (James 1:19-20 NLT)

So let’s recap. I am loved by God and have been given the ministry of reconciliation. In spite of all I’ve done to undeserve His love, He has won me back and invited me to be a part of His work. That is, I’m here to tell people God wants them back. I get to tell the world God wants them. How do I do that? Well, I don’t have it all figured out, but I know it does include laying my life down, serving like crazy, not judging, being gentle, listening, and not getting angry, because anger does not produce righteousness.

Got it.

Now, what does that mean for gay marriage?

To say the decision today was a big deal, is a gross understatement. I wouldn’t even call it ‘landmark,’ I would call it; ‘nuclear.’ The Supreme Court ruling sent supporters into the stratosphere with joy. Rainbow flags blew up the internet while #LoveWins came straight from the oval office. Furthermore, it sent adversaries into a state of mourning. Doomsday prophecies abounded. Fingers were pointed. Prayers were offered. Hard lines were driven into the sand. I posted a pic without really thinking saying the decision was ‘historic.’ In a few minutes, I was labeled a heretic, a hero, and a demon; and I didn’t even think I had offered an opinion.

I scrambled. I regretted posting anything, I felt like I was in the middle of a cultural crossfire and I was being commanded to choose; with the only two sides being avid support or open hostility. I didn’t want to be a proponent of either.”

  • standwithpalestine: Take note ~Christian Zionists~ living in a bubble in America, who think they’d be treated with any form of respect by Israel if they lived there.

  • arosemorose: It’s really sad to see Christians being left out of the conversation, it isn’t a Jewish/Muslim issue
