Whose God is Who???? 2015-96
If the God of the Hebrew, Christian and Muslim faiths are the same God of Abraham, THEN, is there a different god that is followed by those same faiths? Of course NOT!
All those following these religious faiths can say “God is Great!” or “Allah is Great” in Arabic, if you use that language.
To say or think that the God of Abraham likes only one of the religions mentioned and not the other two is ludicrous. I would think that to use a religion to exclude the others of the same God could be sacrilegious to do so.
To also believe that any that do not believe in the religion that you follow and to insist that those of the two other religions MUST do so, is— well I have many words I could use here to describe those people.
History can tell of how evangelists of Christianity traveled to parts far away to not just spread the word, but to somewhat force the unbelievers of Christ into believing in Him. Christians can deny that this happened, but too many writings have proven this to be a fact.
It is evident in reading the stories of the Old Testament that the Hebrews had a thing of dealing with those that did not believe in their God of Abraham, called Yahweh in the time of Moses and afterwards.
So, it is not surprising that certain Islam followers are trying to do the same thing today. The goal is to have the non-believers of Islam convert to their religion, even at the threat of death.
The difference is what the Hebrews did, what the Christian evangelists did, and what the Muslim followers are doing today is about the timing. What the Christian and Hebrew followers did then is not what they do now as a policy. Then and now does not represent now.
Is there prejudice against the other two religions by one religion today, not saying which religion they are right now. YES, would be the answer, for in reality, the minority of each probably does have resentment towards the other religions not of their own that they follow.
Does this make sense? NO!!! In this modern world there should NOT be this type of discourse today! I would think that the only God in existence must have problems with His children that have thoughts and actions the way they do today. Fellow man cannot be violated and killed in the name of God, regardless of the religion being followed.
God does not get pleasure in hearing “God is Great” or “Allah Akbar” (being about the same phrase) after one of his children does a despicable thing like killing in His name. I believe that those that do so are either primitive in thinking, brain washed, ignorant, or some other description that is appropriate for them. Using God as an excuse is inexcusable.
The main thing is if they kill, decapitate, destroy, maim, or kidnap, DON”T do it in the name of God and state that He is agreeing with your actions. If you do it, do it for your own personal corrupt reasons and not God’s if you feel you must do those acts! Or better yet, don’t do it but try to make a peaceful statement for your religion instead. There is NO reason for killing for killing sake anyhow…… Maybe I should say there is NO reason for killing ––period……
I really think I am writing, but not reaching the people of all faiths that do the things they do. I just watched the news (6-18-15) and listened to the reporter tell of nine people killed by a racist in North Carolina, because he hated blacks. He did it inside a church after staying at a Sunday School lesson for an hour, then killed everyone there except for two people who pretended they were dead.
What a world! Again, God of Abraham has to see these things happen and shake His head wondering about the human race then, now and in the future. So many atrocities that occur that probably remind Him that we are still primitive people on this planet Earth. To think that He is in agreement today or even before, of doing things in His name, must make him ponder of why He even bothered creating man…………………………. Maybe it is because He loves ALL, unconditionally, regardless of the faiths, beliefs, etc………………………… Hmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!
