COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART THREE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 512A]

Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Deuteronomy 5:8 – 10, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) command that we should NOT have any kind of idols is quite clear and is echoed at Exodus 20:4, [AV] “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:” And at 1 Corinthians 10:14, [AV] “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.” Yes, He will NOT give his glory to others and this is made clear at Isaiah 42:8, [AV] “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”

[2] PART THREE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Contradictions in the Quran by Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

CREATION OF THE HEAVEN AND EARTH

Which one was created first? As you will see in the verses below, Allah at one time says that Earth was created first and another time he says that the Heaven was created first.

Quran 2: 29 It is He who hath created for you all things that are on Earth; THEN He turned to the Heaven and made them into seven firmaments (Skies)....

Quran 79: 27 - 30 Are you the harder to create, or is the heaven that He built? He raised the height thereof and ordered it; and He has made dark the night thereof, and He brought forth the morning thereof. And after that, He spread (flattened) the earth


Now, does it match modern science? Do you believe that, Earth was created first, after that, God created Heaven? Modern science tells us that? Or How come SEVEN firmaments (layers)? Modern science tells us that, actually there is no such thing Sky is no "roof" over us. It is only a space with no known boundary at all. These verses simply reinforce the ancient idea of ROOF over us which is called SKY, is it not so? How funny!

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART FOUR OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 513A]

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:6 – 7, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, we should exalt Almighty God (YHWH) over everything else including ourselves, and this truth is clearly stated at Matthew 23:12, [AV] “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” And at Matthew 6:25, [AV] “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” Instead, we should per Psalms 55:22, [AV] “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

[2] PART FOUR OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Contradictions in the Quran by Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

This part consist of: 3- Sun-set and Sun-rise and 4- A Resting Place For Sun!?

SUN-SET AND SUN-RISE
Koran teaches us that the Sun sets in a muddy spring:

Quran 18: 86 Till, when he (the traveller Zul-qarnain) reached the setting-place of the Sun, he found it going down into a muddy spring...

Quran 18: 90 Till, when he reached the rising-place of the Sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We had appointed no shelter from it.

Serious scientific errors here! Firstly, it is scientifically accepted fact that, the Sun never go down in a muddy spring. Secondly, this seems to presuppose a FLAT Earth, otherwise how can there be an extreme point in the West or in the East? A sunrise there would be basically just the same as at any other place on this earth, at land or sea. It would still look as if it is setting "far away". It does say, that he reached THE PLACE where the Sun sets and in his second Journey the place where it rises.

A RESTING PLACE FOR SUN!?

Quran 36: 38 And the sun runneth on unto a resting place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.
Quran 36: 39 And for the moon We have appointed mansions till she return like an old shrivelled palm leaf.
Quran 36: 40 It is not for Sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.

Allah is indeed a big scientist. Where is sun and where is moon situated? Can anybody tell me how they could collide/meet/overtake each other? Are the sun and the moon neighbors to each other? I have the answer for this error: Ancient Allah saw (bare eye observations) sun and moon traveling from east to west seemingly in the same Sky area or same path, without colliding, causing day and night etc. Allah hardly could imagine that all these phenomena are simply due to Earth's rotation and NOT by Sun's rotation. Sun is stationary for Earth, because earth is stuck in the sun's Gravity, like we are stuck in earth's gravity. Allah never says any where in the whole Quran that, EARTH ROTATES. Perhaps Allah could not feel earth's rotation.

A resting place for sun WAS CONFIRMED BY HADITHS?

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 421
Sahih Bukhari Hadiths: Abzur Ghifari (ra) narrated: one day Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) asked me, "Abzar do you know after setting where does Sun go?" I replied, I do not know, only Allah's apostle can say better. Then Prophet (SA) replied, "After setting, the sun remains prostrated under Allah's Aro'sh and waits for Allah's command for rising again in the East. Day will come when sun will not get permission to rise again and Qeyamot will fall upon Earth".

Can anybody tell me what is it? It was the superstitious belief of ancient people reflected in the Quran and Hadiths by Allah. A 10-year-old boy would not tell such fairy tale story today.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART FIVE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 514A]


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) clearly has given the gift of life to all, good and bad, this is clearly shown at Matthew 7:11, [AV] “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Yes, as shown at Malachi 3:6, [AV] “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” He does not change.

[2] PART FIVE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Contradictions in the Quran by Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

Part Five consist of 5- Why Allah Created Stars! And 6- Is Sky/Heaven A ROOF or Canopy Over the Earth?

WHY OLD MIDDLE EASTERN CELESTIAL MOON GOD, "ALLAH," CREATED STARS!

Quran gives us further scientific knowledge by telling us that the stars were created by Allah as missiles to throw at the devils:

Quran 67: 5 And We have (from of old) adorned the lowest heaven (sky) with lamps, and We have made such (Lamps as) missiles to drive away Satans...

Quran 37: 6-8 We have indeed decorated the lower heaven (sky) with beauty (in) the stars, (for beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious Satans. So they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side.

Thus, the stars are nothing but missiles to throw at devils so that they may not eavesdrop on the heavenly council. Once again we find how Allah was high on his superstitious weirdness.

IS SKY/HEAVEN A ROOF OR CANOPY OVER THE EARTH?

Quran 21: 32 And We have made the sky a roof withheld (from them). Yet they turn away from its portents.

Quran 31: 10 He hath created the heavens (Skies) without supports (pillars) that ye can see, and hath cast into the earth firm Mountains/Hills, so that it quake not with you; and He hath dispersed...

Quran 2: 22: Who has made the earth your couch, And the heavens (Sky) your canopy

Modern science tells us- whole thing around the earth is space and there is no boundary even if we go Billions of light years away in all directions. Questions are: When there is no sky above us then how in the world, it needs pillars for support? Do we really have a roof above us? Is there a canopy above the Earth? Is there anything called above or beneath us? Are mountains there to prevent Earth from shaking? Give me a break!

Once again Allah considered sky as roof over the Earth, which will broke/shattered during dooms day

Quran 78: 19 And the heavens (sky) Shall be broken (opened) as if there were doors opens...

Quran 82: 1 When the Sky is cleft asunder

Quran 69: 16 And the sky will be Rent asunder, for it will That day be flimsy (soft)

Quran 81: 2 When the stars fall, losing their luster.

Yousuf Ali comments in his Tafsir: beautiful blue-sky overhead (which we take for granted in sunshine) will be shattered to pieces. Modern science tells us that there is no such thing as roof/sky or any canopy over the Earth; rather all around Earth is a limitless space. Only Allah knows what will break/shatter or will get soft/flimsy or how doors will open , there is no walls, where from doors will come? In some Ayats Allah threatened kafirs by saying: "I (Allah) will throw broken pieces of sky over your head."

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART SIX OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 515A]

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) has always existed and He does not change. As He said, Isaiah 43:10, [AV] “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” Yes to be His genuine follower, you must keep yourself without spot from the world per James 1:27, [AV] “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

[2] PART SIX OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Contradictions in the Quran by Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

Part Six consist of 7- Does Sun Rotate Around the Earth? And
8- Does Earth Spread Out Like Carpet (flat)

DOES SUN ROTATE AROUND THE EARTH?

Quran 31: 29 Seest thou not that Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night; That He has subjected the sun and moon (to His law), each running its course for a term (time) appointed.

Quran 21: 33 It is He who created The Night and Day, And the Sun and Moon; each of them Swim (float) along in its own course.

Ayats mentioned above could be found over and over again and again almost in every pages of Quran. Because, Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," standing in the open Arab desert saw very well that, every morning SUN is rising from the East and gradually (appointed time or fixed time) setting to the West, and as a result, day and night follows. Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," truly mentioned this wrong knowledge (sun moving) of pre-historic people. Every time Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," mentioned Sun & Moon, He mentioned day & night, as if it is due to sun's movement day and night follows. But surprisingly, all the hypocrite Mullahs giving false credit to Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," by saying: look Quran told about sun's movement 1400 years ago which modern science only found out now. In real world, sun takes 225 millions of years to make just one complete circle through the solar Universe. And obviously this movement of sun has nothing to do with DAY & NIGHT of the earth. Actually, Sun is stationary in relation to the Earth, because the Earth is stuck to the giant gravitation force of the Sun, and the Earth also moves along with the Sun wherever it goes, just the way we are stuck to the Earth's gravitation force and do not feel its movement at all.

Why then, Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," was telling the Sun's movement again and again. I have already mentioned above, why Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," was hysteric about the Sun's movements. Now dishonest Mullahs are claiming science here. I wonder, why Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," has to mentioned about the Sun's 225 millions year journey (which is even unimaginable to mankind) to tell about day and night? What relation Sun's movement has with the day and night?

DOES EARTH SPREAD OUT LIKE CARPET (FLAT)?

Quran 15: 19 And the earth We have spread out (like a carpet); set thereon Mountains firm and immovable;

Quran 78: 6-7 Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse, And the mountains as pegs (anchor)?

Allah was sure that earth is flat like a carpet and mountains are there to anchor the earth so that earth does not shake with us. Allah is really merciful scientist.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 516A]

But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Jeremiah 10:10, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, Almighty God (YHWH) alone is the all powerful we can put our trust in as shown by Joshua 3:10, [AV] “And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.” Joshua’s trust was not misplaced because He did give him victory over all these enemies. He could do so since as Psalms 10:16, [AV] “The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.” And as said at Psalms 90:11, [AV] “Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.”

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Lemon drop mangosteen, Garcinia intermedia (Clusiaceae)

Common Names
English: lemon drop mangosteen, mameyito
Spanish: mameyito, sastra
Portuguese (Brazil): achachairu

Origin and Distribution
Native to southern Mexico and Central America. Cultivated sporadically throughout the tropics.

Botanical Synonyms
Rheedia intermedia, Rheedia edulis and Calophyllum edule.

Description
Lemon drop mangosteen is a small tree, from 15-20 feet (5-6 m) tall, with a straight, dark brown trunk. Young branches have smooth green bark. Contains yellow latex. Leaves are opposite, stiff, 3-5 inches (7.6-13 cm) long and 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) wide. Flowers are whitish and small, perfect, and produced in axillary groups of 1-15 at branch nodes. The fruits are round, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter, with a thin orange to reddish peel. The whitish pulp has an aromatic sweet sour taste, and contains 1-2 seeds.

Propagation and Culture
Lemon drop mangosteen is usually propagated by seed, which loses viability rapidly if allowed to dry out. The seeds germinate easily and the tree is precocious, flowering and fruiting in 2-3 years. It can be grown and will fruit in a large pot.

The tree is very adaptable, growing well in different soils and environments from sea level to 4,000 feet (1,219 m) elevation. It grows well in full sun or shade, but fruits better in full sun. Flowers and fruits sporadically throughout the year…

Cultivars and Related Species
There are no named cultivars of lemon drop mangosteen, but some trees have sweeter fruit, and could be propagated by grafting.

There are over 100 Garcinia species, mostly from southeast Asia. Garcinia species from the Americas were once classified as Rheedia, but now all are considered Garcinia.

Uses
Lemon drop mangosteen is primarily consumed fresh, but can also be used to make juices, jams and jellies. The wood is resistant to termites, and is used to make posts and tool handles. The tree is an attractive ornamental, especially when in fruit. [source - retrieved from http://www.montosogardens.com/garcinia_intermedia.htm on 5/11/2013]

Growth
The fast growing tree reaches a height of about 5 meters. It is tolerant of a wide range of soils, up to an altitude of around 4000 feet. It can be grown successfully and will fruit in a large pot. It grows best with regular water in full sun in a humid environment. It tolerates high temperatures but is probably not frost hardy. It has small, whitish flowers which are perfect and makes an attractive ornamental tree, especially when in truit, which may be year round. Its leaves are opposite.

The wood is termite resistant and used to make posts and tool handles.

Propogation
The tree is generally propogated from seeds, though it can be grafted. No named cultivars are known. Seeds lose viability if dried, but can retain viability for a period of months if kept moist.

Fruit
The tree may fruit after as little as two years. The fruits are smooth spheres about an inch in diameter with a thin yellow, orange or red rind around a white pulp. They are edible and have an appealing sweet and sour taste. It is usually eaten out of hand, though can be used for drinks, jams and jellies.[2]

Distribution
Native to Central America, it is cultivated sporadically throughout the tropics.[3]

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART SEVEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 517A]

What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. 14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
Psalms 116:12 – 14, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

It is imperative that we serve the true God, and His son directed us at Matthew 28:18 – 20, [AV] “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Jesus (Yeshua) himself when speaking to Simon Peter stressed the importance of feeding his sheep at John 21:16 – 17, [AV] “He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

Part Seven consist of 9- Is Man Created From Clotted Blood? And 10- Is Religion Compulsive or is it not?

IS MAN CREATED FROM CLOTTED BLOOD?
Quran-23:14: Then fashioned We the drop (semen) a CLOT OF CONGEALED BLOOD then fashioned We the Clot a little lump (foetus), fashioned We the little lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators. ( Bengali translated Quran said: "Zamaa't Raokto theeke Manoosh banieesi" And this Ayat has been repeated again and again throughout the Quran ) Quran-75:38: Then he becomes a CLOT; then (Allah) shaped and fashioned...

Quran 96: 2 Created man, out of a mere clot of congealed blood

There are serious scientific problems here:

Blood clot cannot grow into anything. This idea also came from the Greek. Aristotle erroneously believed that, humans are originated from the action of male semen upon female menstrual blood, which is absolutely an incorrect assumption. Quran's assertion on Clot (alaqa) is completely wrong about human development, since there is absolutely no stage during which the embryo consists of a clot. The only situation in which an embryo might appear like a clot is during a miscarriage, in which case the clotted blood that is seen to emerge (much of which comes from mother) is solidified and by definition no longer alive. Therefore, if ever an embryo appeared to look like a clot it would never develop any further into a human; it would be a dead mass of bloody miscarrying flesh. Since Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had some thirteen wives it is entirely possible that he would be very familiar with miscarriages.

Modern science tells us that, the formation of human embryo is a seamless continuation from conception to birth; hence there are no hard- and- fast boundaries of stages as Quran describes. Quran describes 4 stages, which matches exactly with Galenic description of development of human embryo (which was proved wrong by modern science).

Creation of bones and clothing of bones with flesh: According to modern embryologists including Prof. Moore, the tissue from which bone originates, known as mesoderm, is the same tissue as that from which muscle (flesh) develops. Thus bone and muscles begin to develop simultaneously, rather than sequentially (as the Quran is telling us). Moreover, most of the muscle tissue that we humans have is laid down before birth, but bones continue to develop and calcify (strengthen with calcium) right into one's teenage years. So it would be more accurate if the Quran had said that muscles started to develop at the same time as bones, but completed their development earlier. The idea that bones are clothed with flesh is not only scientifically completely wrong/false, but was directly copied from the ancient Greek doctor Galen's hypothesis.

Also, the idea of saying: "made into bones and clothed the bones with muscle" came from the technique of making animal statue out of rod and cement or mud. People usually make the skeleton (out of rod or stick) first and, then cover it up with cement or mud. This is scarcely a scientific description of embryonic development. It is rather a description of an unlettered man.

IS RELIGION COMPULSIVE OR IS IT NOT?

Quran 02: 256 There is no Compulsion in religion....

OR

Quran 9: 29 Fight those who do not profess the true faith(Islam) till they pay the polltax (jiziya) with the hand of humility.

Quran 9: 5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them and take them captive, and besiege them and prepare for them each ambush....

Quran 47: 4 When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads....

Quran 2: 191 And slay (kill) them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

Quran 8: 65 O Apostle ! rouse the believers to the fight of....unbelievers.

Very often apologetics claim that, Islam is a religion of peace and there is no compulsion. Yet punishment of an apostate in Islam is, of course, death penalty.

In very many Ayats Allah claimed that, He has given this Quran in the easy and clear language so that, it will not be difficult to understand by the ordinary Arabs.

Quran 44: 58 Verily, We have made This Quran easy in the tongue, in order that they may give heed.

No matter which translated Quran we read, the Quranic materials remain the same to us and every sentence is self explanatory and it does not take a rocket scientist to comprehend what is the message Allah wanted to transmit for Arabs. Yet, bigot Mullahs will always blame translators for Quranic contradictions/errors/inconsistencies etc. and will try to find lame excuses to cover up Allah's ignorance.

Comments:
The Holy Quran is full of inaccuracies, contradictions, inconsistencies, redundancies, no chronology or chapters, grammatical errors, etc. One can find hundreds of contradictions/errors/inconsistencies in the Holy Quran. The above-mentioned Ayats are just selected samples from the Quran. But still it is a miracle to those who are blindfolded bigots.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART EIGHT OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 518A]


The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes many out of fear of man will, Proverbs 29:26 - 27, [AV] “Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD. 27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”

Remember what is written at 1 Peter 3:14 – 15, [AV] “But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”

[2] PART EIGHT OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 1

But first a statement by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza.

Are these any better? Look, my whole point of this is that I am tired of hearing how EVERY OTHER religious book out there is "wrong and has lies but the Quran is perfect" I see that no one stepped up to defend some of the other things that I posted.....like this (these aren't errors, I'll get back to those in a minute):

1. "Do not let non-Muslims enter mosques. They will go to hell." ( Repentance: 17 )

2. "O ye who believe! The non-Muslims are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship." (Repentance: 2)

3. "O ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers .... and let them find harshness in you." (Repentance: 123)

4. "Humiliate the non-Muslims to such an extent that they surrender and pay tribute." (Repentance: 29)

5. "O believers, do not treat your fathers and brothers as your friends, if they prefer unbelief to belief, whosoever of you takes them for friends, they are evil-doers." (Repentance: 20)

6. "Certainly, God is an enemy to the unbelievers." ( The Cow: 90 )

7. "God has cursed the unbelievers, and prepared for them a blazing hell." ( The Confederates 60 )

8. "Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends.... whoso does that belongs not to God." (The House of Imram: 60)

9. "O believers, do not make friends with the Jews and Christians; ..whoso of you makes them his friend is one of them." (The Table: 55)

10. "The believers indeed are brothers." ( Apa rtments: 10 )

11. "Moslems are hard against the unbelievers, merciful to one another." (Victory: 25)

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

What are some of those about? You aren't a good muslim if you are friends with a christian? If that is the case, how am I suppose to trust what someone is saying to me if I don't believe in their religion? It's kind of hard to "follow" something when it's telling me to "murder those of the disbelivers"

Oh well, like I said at the beginning of this......are these any better? I know a couple of them are the same but it's from a different place.

Error in the Quran

This article was written in answer to a statement that the bible contains error whereas the Quran, the muslim holy book, does not.

It highlights ten of the more difficult to explain contradictions within the Quran and will hopefully help get some of our muslim friends thinking, if you are a muslim I invite you to explain these contradictions and assure you that your refutations will be made public if this is what you require.

Please note however that I will not accept simple statements such as "you are wrong" as fact, answers must be supported by either convincing evidence or at least by a logical argument.

1) The Samaritan that never was:
Surah 20:85-87 and Sura 20:95-97 state that the calf worshipped by the Israelites was made by a Samaritan but neither the country of Samaria (where Samaritans come from) nor the term Samaritan existed during this time (the time of the Exodus) and so it is historical fact that Moses could NOT have used the term or had any dealings with a Samaritan.

Sura 20:85-87,

020.085
YUSUFALI: (Allah) said: "We have tested thy people in thy absence: the Samiri has led them astray."
PICKTHAL: He said: Lo! We have tried thy folk in thine absence, and As-Samiri hath misled them.
SHAKIR: He said: So surely We have tried your people after you, and the Samiri has led them astray.

020.086
YUSUFALI: So Moses returned to his people in a state of indignation and sorrow. He said: "O my people! did not your Lord make a handsome promise to you? Did then the promise seem to you long (in coming)? Or did ye desire that Wrath should descend from your Lord on you, and so ye broke your promise to me?"
PICKTHAL: Then Moses went back unto his folk, angry and sad. He said: O my people! Hath not your Lord promised you a fair promise? Did the time appointed then appear too long for you, or did ye wish that wrath from your Lord should come upon you, that ye broke tryst with me?
SHAKIR: So Musa returned to his people wrathful, sorrowing. Said he: O my people! did not your Lord promise you a goodly promise: did then the time seem long to you, or did you wish that displeasure from your Lord should be due to you, so that you broke (your) promise to me?

020.087
YUSUFALI: They said: "We broke not the promise to thee, as far as lay in our power: but we were made to carry the weight of the ornaments of the (whole) people, and we threw them (into the fire), and that was what the Samiri suggested.
PICKTHAL: They said: We broke not tryst with thee of our own will, but we were laden with burdens of ornaments of the folk, then cast them (in the fire), for thus As-Samiri proposed.
SHAKIR: They said: We did not break (our) promise to you of our own accord, but we were made to bear the burdens of the ornaments of the people, then we made a casting of them, and thus did the Samiri suggest.

Sura 20:95-97,

020.095
YUSUFALI: (Moses) said: "What then is thy case, O Samiri?"
PICKTHAL: (Moses) said: And what hast thou to say, O Samiri?
SHAKIR: He said: What was then your object, O Samiri?

020.096
YUSUFALI: He replied: "I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf): thus did my soul suggest to me."
PICKTHAL: He said: I perceived what they perceive not, so I seized a handful from the footsteps of the messenger, and then threw it in. Thus my soul commended to me.
SHAKIR: He said: I saw (Jibreel) what they did not see, so I took a handful (of the dust) from the footsteps of the messenger, then I threw it in the casting; thus did my soul commend to me

020.097
YUSUFALI: (Moses) said: "Get thee gone! but thy (punishment) in this life will be that thou wilt say, 'touch me not'; and moreover (for a future penalty) thou hast a promise that will not fail: Now look at thy god, of whom thou hast become a devoted worshipper: We will certainly (melt) it in a blazing fire and scatter it broadcast in the sea!"
PICKTHAL: (Moses) said: Then go! and lo! in this life it is for thee to say: Touch me not! and lo! there is for thee a tryst thou canst not break. Now look upon thy god of which thou hast remained a votary. Verily we will burn it and will scatter its dust over the sea.
SHAKIR: He said: Begone then, surely for you it will be in this life to say, Touch (me) not; and surely there is a threat for you, which shall not be made to fail to you, and look at your god to whose worship you kept (so long); we will certainly burn it, then we will certainly scatter it a (wide) scattering in the sea.

The term was not used by anyone until around 722 BC, hundreds of years after the exodus that the "error free" Quran describes in this sura.

History proves without question that the term and the country did NOT exist until HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER.

Would a perfect god make this blatant historical error?

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART NINE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 519A]

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:5, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, we should humble ourselves before our creator as shown at 1 Peter 5:6, [AV] “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:” Remember,per Galations 6:7 – 10, [AV] “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” Also, we should carefully pick our companions as testified to at Proverbs 13:20, [AV] “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

2) The miraculous journey:
Sura 17:1 of the quran reads....
"Glory to Allah Who did take his servant for a journey by night.
From the sacred mosque to THE FARTHEST MOSQUE".

Sura 17:1,

YUSUFALI: Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things).

PICKTHAL: Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far distant place of worship the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, that We might show him of Our tokens! Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer.

SHAKIR: Glory be to Him Who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts, so that We may show to him some of Our signs; surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.


The furthest mosque (arabic name of which is Al-Masjid-ul-Aqs-a) didn`t exist until AFTER Muhammed died, Muhammed COULD NOT HAVE VISITED IT!

Of course if this was added AFTER his death then it would have been easy to make such a mistake, but muslims are adamant the quran has not changed....

This verse is said to have been revealed around 622 AD but then the place the mosque, mentioned by name (so no doubting which mosque is meant), is at did not exist and indeed the place it now sits was in CHRISTIAN hands then and not muslim.

And no temple existed there either.

Muslims have attempted to say that the name is incorrect, that the name in the Quran ("the farthest mosque") must simply be another mosque with that name or that it refers to the temple (which of course we know didn`t exist then either) - anything they can rather than admitting that the quran got it wrong.

3) Two of everything:
Sura 51:49 of the quran tells us that....

"of everything we have created PAIRS that ye may receive instruction"

Sura 51:49,

YUSUFALI: And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

PICKTHAL: And all things We have created by pairs, that haply ye may reflect.

SHAKIR: And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.


The quran claims to be from allah and here allah tells us that everything was made in pairs (incidentally muslims say they worship just one god, allah, yet here the quran says "WE have created" and not "I have created"?).

Guess allah didn`t make everything after all then, after all there is gravity which keeps us down - but no anti-gravity which pulls us up.

Bdelloid Rotifers (I`m not a scientist so hope I`ve spelled this right are a class of life that have apparently, according to the experts, been pair-less for millions of years.

I will not detail whole lists of things here that are not made in pairs such as certain types of plant, bacterium, etc etera as I`m sure most will know of at least one example and even one disproves the qurans claim.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART ELEVEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 521A]

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. Genesis 3:5 – 6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Pride and a feeling of wanting to be more in charge led Eve to disobey Almighty God (YHWH) and ultimately leading her husband put all man under the curse of inherited sin. This is made clear at Psalms 91; , [AV] “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” Yes, He shall deliver all seeking to do his will as shown by Genesis 6:5 - 8, [AV] “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.” The Creator delivered Noah and his family because they were doing his will and they found favor with Him.

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 4

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

4) Alexander the great - the muslim BEFORE Muhammed:

We all know of the infamous Alexander the great, he happened to think he was divine and had statues erected to himself among his historical achievements.

But did you know he was a muslim?

Surah 18 tells us of Zul-Quarnain, who muslims have always claimed is Alexander the great.

Sura 18:83,

YUSUFALI: They ask thee concerning Zul-qarnain. Say, "I will rehearse to you something of his story."

PICKTHAL: They will ask thee of Dhu'l-Qarneyn. Say: I shall recite unto you a remembrance of him.

SHAKIR: And they ask you about Zulqarnain. Say: I will recite to you an account of him.

And,

Sura 18.86,

YUSUFALI: Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People: We said: "O Zul-qarnain! (thou hast authority,) either to punish them, or to treat them with kindness."

PICKTHAL: Till, when he reached the setting-place of the sun, he found it setting in a muddy spring, and found a people thereabout. We said: O Dhu'l-Qarneyn! Either punish or show them kindness.

SHAKIR: Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people. We said: O Zulqarnain! either give them a chastisement or do them a benefit.

And,

Sura 18.94,

YUSUFALI: They said: "O Zul-qarnain! the Gog and Magog (People) do great mischief on earth: shall we then render thee tribute in order that thou mightest erect a barrier between us and them?

PICKTHAL: They said: O Dhu'l-Qarneyn! Lo! Gog and Magog are spoiling the land. So may we pay thee tribute on condition that thou set a barrier between us and them?

SHAKIR: They said: O Zulqarnain! surely Gog and Magog make mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute on condition that you should raise a barrier between us and them


According to muslims he was a great muslim, a follower of one god and apparently lived to old age.

Alexander the great, however, died at 33 years old after having put up statues to lots of different gods and even thought he himself was a god.

Clearly he was not a muslim, despite their claims, and he did not live to old age.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 522A]

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:7 – 8, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This fact is reaffirmed at Amos 5:4 – 8, [AV] “For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live: 5 But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought. 6 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel. 7 Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth, 8 Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:” yes the need to resist the Devil and take on the protective armor against his is emphasized at Ephesians 6:10 – 18, [AV] “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Garcinia kola (bitter kola, a name sometimes also used for G. afzelii) is a species of flowering plant in the Clusiaceae or Guttiferae family. It is found in Benin,Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Liberia,Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
Garcinia kola or bitter kola is a tree that grows in the rain forests of west Africa. The fruit, seeds, nuts and bark of the plant have been used for centuries in folk medicineto treat ailments from coughs to fever. According to a report from the Center For International Forestry Research, garcinia kola trade is still important to the tribes and villages in Nigeria. As with any herb, never consume garcinia kola without first discussing its use and benefits with your physician, especially if you are currently being treated for other medical conditions or are on any medications.
Traditional medicine
Garcinia kola is traditionally used by African medicinemen who believe that it has purgative, antiparasitic, and antimicrobial properties.[2] The seeds are used for bronchitis, throat infections, colic, head or chest colds, and cough.[2] It is also used for liver disorders and as a chewing stick.[2]
Barriers to cultivation
Despite its socio-economic importance of Garcinia kola, the cultivation of the species is very much limited. Factors that have discouraged farmers from growing Garcinia kola include difficulties encountered in the germination which reduces the availability of seedlings in the nurseries for possible plantation establishment. Most of the productive trees are those which were left in the wild when farm plots were cut out of the forest (Adebisi, 2004). Researchers have studied the germination problems of G. kola seeds and suggested various means of breaking its dormancy (Gyimah, 2000, Anegbeh et al., 2006, Kanmegne and Ndoumou, 2007, Oboho and Urughu, 2010, Oboho and Ogana, 2011). But there is still a great need to investigate more simple and practicable methods that could be easily adopted by the farmers with low technological input. G. kola seeds has both seeds coat dormancy and physiological dormancy probably imposed by the chemicals in the seed (Oboho and Urughu 2010). Seed coat dormancy of Garcinia kola can be reduced by removing the seed coat before sowing while the physiological dormancy can be reduced by soaking in water for 72 hours (Yakubu et al., 2014). the removal of the seed coat, soaking in water for 72 hours, placing inside air tight transparent polythene bag and sprinkling of water on the seeds when needed for constant moisture will give early germination period of 2 weeks (Yakubu et al., 2014).

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART TWELVE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 523A]

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12:9, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, and his appearance as revealed at Revelation 12:3, [AV] “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” He is the personification of evil which first appeared in the garden and is described at 2 Corinthians 11:3, [AV] “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” Even the Son of God was tempted to do wrong as shown at Matthew 4:1, [AV] “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.” Unfortunately he has been quite successful in blinding the minds of the greater number of earth’s inhabitants as testified to at 2 Corinthians 4:4, [AV] “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

[2] PART TWELVE OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 5

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

5) The amazing tale of pharoah:
We all know of the infamous pharoah and how he perished chasing after the Israelites.

But did you know that allah killed him and also let him live?

Surah 10:92 tells us that allah saved pharoah and let him live but the same story elsewhere in the quran (Suras 28:40, 17:103 and 43:55) say that actually pharoah drowned!

Sura 10:92,

YUSUFALI: "This day shall We save thee in the body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! but verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!"

PICKTHAL: But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayst be a portent for those after thee. Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.

SHAKIR: But We will this day deliver you with your body that you may be a sign to those after you, and most surely the majority of the people are heedless to Our

Compare with,

Sura 28:40,

YUSUFALI: So We seized him and his hosts, and We flung them into the sea: Now behold what was the end of those who did wrong!

PICKTHAL: Therefor We seized him and his hosts, and abandoned them unto the sea. Behold the nature of the consequence for evil-doers!

SHAKIR: So We caught hold of him and his hosts, then We cast them into the sea, and see how was the end of the unjust.

And,

Sura 17:103,

YUSUFALI: So he resolved to remove them from the face of the earth: but We did drown him and all who were with him.

PICKTHAL: And he wished to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together.

SHAKIR: So he desired to destroy them out of the earth, but We drowned him and those with him all together;

And,

Sura 43:55,

YUSUFALI: When at length they provoked Us, We exacted retribution from them, and We drowned them all.

PICKTHAL: So, when they angered Us, We punished them and drowned them every one.

SHAKIR: Then when they displeased Us, We inflicted a retribution on them, so We drowned them all together,


Now if there is NO ERROR in the quran then how can pharoah have died in one Sura yet not died in the others?

Still no contradiction? Let’s get real.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART THIRTEEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 524A]

And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Matthew 13:3 – 8, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Jesus spoke this illustration with respect how people would react upon hearing the word of Almighty God (YHWH). Now let’s consider each part. First, Matthew 13:19, [AV] “When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.” This harkens back to 13:4, above. Then, Matthew 13:20 – 21, [AV] “But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.” Refers back to Matthew 13:5 – 6. And Matthew 13:22, [AV] “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.” Which refers back to Matthew 13:7. Last, Matthew 13:23, [AV] “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” We should seek to be of this later class which harkens back to Matthew 13:8.

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 6

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

6) Angels cannot disobey allah:
Sura 16:49-50 says of the angels that "...They ALL fear their Lord, high above them, and they do ALL THEY ARE COMMANDED."

Suras 16:49-50,

16.49
YUSUFALI: And to Allah doth obeisance all that is in the heavens and on earth, whether moving (living) creatures or the angels: for none are arrogant (before their Lord).

PICKTHAL: And unto Allah maketh prostration whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth of living creatures, and the angels (also) and they are not proud.

SHAKIR: And whatever creature that is in the heavens and that is in the earth makes obeisance to Allah (only), and the angels (too) and they do not show pride.

16.50
YUSUFALI: They all revere their Lord, high above them, and they do all that they are commanded.

PICKTHAL: They fear their Lord above them, and do what they are bidden.

SHAKIR: They fear their Lord above them and do what they are commanded.

Here we are told angels NEVER disobey allah.

But, not suprisingly, the quran then says in Sura 2:34 when talking of the angels being told to bow down to Adam that

"And behold, we said to the angels: `bow down to Adam`. And they bowed down, EXCEPT IBLIS. HE REFUSED AND WAS HAUGHTY".

Sura 2:34,

YUSUFALI: He said: "O Adam! Tell them their names." When he had told them, Allah said: "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what ye reveal and what ye conceal?"

PICKTHAL: He said: O Adam! Inform them of their names, and when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not tell you that I know the secret of the heavens and the earth? And I know that which ye disclose and which ye hide.

SHAKIR: He said: O Adam! inform them of their names. Then when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not say to you that I surely know what is ghaib in the heavens and the earth and (that) I know what you manifest and what you hide?


So according to the quran ALL angels do as commanded, but not always

UPDATE: In fairness to Muslims I have offered to show any problems found with the articles on Islam. One has written and been discussing with me this error in particular about angels disobeying allah.

As he rightly points out there is another Sura (Surah 18:50) which says the same thing but also says Iblis was a Jinn. Surah 2:34 however says ALL the angels bowed EXCEPT Iblis.

Sura 18:50,

YUSUFALI: Behold! We said to the angels, "Bow down to Adam": They bowed down except Iblis. He was one of the Jinns, and he broke the Command of his Lord. Will ye then take him and his progeny as protectors rather than Me? And they are enemies to you! Evil would be the exchange for the wrong-doers!

PICKTHAL: And (remember) when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord's command. Will ye choose him and his seed for your protecting friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy unto you? Calamitous is the exchange for evil-doers.

SHAKIR: And when We said to the angels: Make obeisance to Adam; they made obeisance but Iblis (did it not). He was of the jinn, so he transgressed the commandment of his Lord. What! would you then take him and his offspring for friends rather than Me, and they are your enemies? Evil is (this) change for the unjust.

If the Quran is indeed error free this passage makes no sense as for all angels to bow except Iblis implies he too is an angel, if not then the command did not apply to him and so the Quran is wrong to say all angels except Iblis bowed.

The given answer to this, and one I cannot argue is wrong as I do not speak Arabic, is that the translations are in error and that the original Arabic language Quran reads in such a way that there is no confusion.

While I can`t confirm this without reading Arabic I felt I should add this possible explanation in the interests of fairness as I`m not here to mislead but to be honest. Basically the argument for explaining this difference is that the English translations are incorrect and that the Arabic version is the only one not.

[size=150]COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART FOURTEENTH OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 525A]

But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, Matthew 24:37 – 38, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, our day is a critical time as we are living in the time of the conclusion of the last days of which Luke 17:26 – 27, [AV] “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.” Testified it shall be as in the days of Noah. And like the days of Noah, the greater number are not taking heed or noting the critical times.

[2] PART FOURTEENTH OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza


And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 7

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

7) Allah tells Moses about following Jesus gospel - 1000 years too early:
The Injil (or gospel) is what muslims say was given to Jesus.

Jesus was born about 1400 or so years AFTER Moses.

Sura 7:157 reads "Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures), in the Torah AND THE GOSPEL".

Sura 7:157,

YUSUFALI: "Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper."

PICKTHAL: Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honour him, and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful.

SHAKIR: Those who follow the Messenger-Prophet, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel (who) enjoins them good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things and makes unlawful to them impure things, and removes from them their burden and the shackles which were upon them; so (as for) those who believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him, these it is that are the successful.

The quran makes it clear Jesus was given the gospel but here allah tells Moses that the people of that time could find Muhammed in Jesus` gospel - when it wouldn`t be knowen for well over another THOUSAND years.

The only way a muslim seems to find out of this one is to say it refers to the gospel, as we know, but that it is telling them it is yet to be revealed - unfortunately it is quite evident that allahs speech here is in the present tense to them, i.e. he is addressing them as if it already exists "WHOM THEY FIND MENTIONED" not "who they WILL find mentioned".

The incredible changing man:
Did you know that allah created man, according to the quran from one thing.

[1] A blood clot (Sura 96:1-2).

Sura 96:1-2,

96.1
YUSUFALI: Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created-

PICKTHAL: Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth,

SHAKIR: Read in the name of your Lord Who created.

96.2
YUSUFALI: Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:

PICKTHAL: Createth man from a clot.

SHAKIR: He created man from a clot.


[2] ....and water (Suras 21:30, 24:45 and 25:54).

Sura 21:30,

YUSUFALI: Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

PICKTHAL: Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then We parted them, and we made every living thing of water? Will they not then believe?

SHAKIR: Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?

And,

Sura 24:45,

YUSUFALI: And Allah has created every animal from water: of them there are some that creep on their bellies; some that walk on two legs; and some that walk on four. Allah creates what He wills for verily Allah has power over all things.

PICKTHAL: Allah hath created every animal of water. Of them is (a kind) that goeth upon its belly and (a kind) that goeth upon two legs and (a kind) that goeth upon four. Allah createth what He will. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

SHAKIR: And Allah has created from water every living creature: so of them is that which walks upon its belly, and of them is that which walks upon two feet, and of them is that which walks upon four; Allah creates what He pleases; surely Allah has power over all things.

And,

Sura 25:54,

YUSUFALI: It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power (over all things).

PICKTHAL: And He it is Who hath created man from water, and hath appointed for him kindred by blood and kindred by marriage; for thy Lord is ever Powerful.

SHAKIR: And He it is Who has created man from the water, then He has made for him blood relationship and marriage relationship, and your Lord is powerful.

[3] ....and clay (Sura 15:26).

Sura 15:26,

YUSUFALI: We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape;

PICKTHAL: Verily We created man of potter's clay of black mud altered,

SHAKIR: And certainly We created man of clay that gives forth sound, of black mud fashioned in shape.

[4] ....and dust (Suras 3:59, 30:20 and 35:11).

Sura 3:59,

YUSUFALI: The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was.

PICKTHAL: Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, then He said unto him: Be! and he is.

SHAKIR: Surely the likeness of Isa is with Allah as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, Be, and he was.

And,

Sura 30:20,

YUSUFALI: Among His Signs in this, that He created you from dust; and then,- behold, ye are men scattered (far and wide)!

PICKTHAL: And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!

SHAKIR: And one of His signs is that He created you from dust, then lo! you are mortals (who) scatter.

And,

Sura 35:11,

YUSUFALI: And Allah did create you from dust; then from a sperm-drop; then He made you in pairs. And no female conceives, or lays down (her load), but with His knowledge. Nor is a man long-lived granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life, but is in a Decree (ordained). All this is easy to Allah.

PICKTHAL: Allah created you from dust, then from a little fluid, then He made you pairs (the male and female). No female beareth or bringeth forth save with His knowledge. And no-one groweth old who groweth old, nor is aught lessened of his life, but it is recorded in a Book, Lo! that is easy for Allah.

SHAKIR: And Allah created you of dust, then of the life-germ, then He made you pairs; and no female bears, nor does she bring forth, except with His knowledge; and no one whose life is lengthened has his life lengthened, nor is aught diminished of one's life, but it is all in a book; surely this is easy to Allah.

[5] ....and nothing (Sura 19:67).

Sura 19:67,

YUSUFALI: But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?

PICKTHAL: Doth not man remember that We created him before, when he was naught?

SHAKIR: Does not man remember that We created him before, when he was nothing?


Believe it or not there really are these FIVE different accounts of what man was made from.

Still no contradiction in the quran?

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART FIFTEEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 526A]

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. Ephesians 4:17 – 19, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

And 1 Peter 4:3, [AV] “For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:” shows we should give up our wrong ways. Yes, many of those doing what Almighty God (YHWH) does not want knew who He is , but as stated at Romans 1:21, [AV] “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Yes, all need to per Acts 26:18, [AV] “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” For those not wanting to be obedient to him, He per Romans 1:28, [AV] “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” So we should per Isaiah 56:11 - 12, [AV] “Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. 2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.”

[2] PART FIFTEEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 8

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]


8) The magic inheritance:
Suras 4:11-12 and 4:176 of the quran tell us the details of the muslim inheritance law.

Sura 4:11-12,

4.11
YUSUFALI: Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases ('s) after the payment of legacies and debts. Ye know not whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit. These are settled portions ordained by Allah; and Allah is All-knowing, Al-wise.

PICKTHAL: Allah chargeth you concerning (the provision for) your children: to the male the equivalent of the portion of two females, and if there be women more than two, then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance, and if there be one (only) then the half. And to each of his parents a sixth of the inheritance, if he have a son; and if he have no son and his parents are his heirs, then to his mother appertaineth the third; and if he have brethren, then to his mother appertaineth the sixth, after any legacy he may have bequeathed, or debt (hath been paid). Your parents and your children: Ye know not which of them is nearer unto you in usefulness. It is an injunction from Allah. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise.

SHAKIR: Allah enjoins you concerning your children: The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females; then if they are more than two females, they shall have two-thirds of what the deceased has left, and if there is one, she shall have the half; and as for his parents, each of them shall have the sixth of what he has left if he has a child, but if he has no child and (only) his two parents inherit him, then his mother shall have the third; but if he has brothers, then his mother shall have the sixth after (the payment of) a bequest he may have bequeathed or a debt; your parents and your children, you know not which of them is the nearer to you in usefulness; this is an ordinance from Allah: Surely Allah is Knowing, Wise.

4.12
YUSUFALI: In what your wives leave, your share is a half, if they leave no child; but if they leave a child, ye get a fourth; after payment of legacies and debts. In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child, they get an eighth; after payment of legacies and debts. If the man or woman whose inheritance is in question, has left neither ascendants nor descendants, but has left a brother or a sister, each one of the two gets a sixth; but if more than two, they share in a third; after payment of legacies and debts; so that no loss is caused (to any one). Thus is it ordained by Allah; and Allah is All-knowing, Most Forbearing.

PICKTHAL: And unto you belongeth a half of that which your wives leave, if they have no child; but if they have a child then unto you the fourth of that which they leave, after any legacy they may have bequeathed, or debt (they may have contracted, hath been paid). And unto them belongeth the fourth of that which ye leave if ye have no child, but if ye have a child then the eighth of that which ye leave, after any legacy ye may have bequeathed, or debt (ye may have contracted, hath been paid). And if a man or a woman have a distant heir (having left neither parent nor child), and he (or she) have a brother or a sister (only on the mother's side) then to each of them twain (the brother and the sister) the sixth, and if they be more than two, then they shall be sharers in the third, after any legacy that may have been bequeathed or debt (contracted) not injuring (the heirs by willing away more than a third of the heritage) hath been paid. A commandment from Allah. Allah is Knower, Indulgent.

SHAKIR: And you shall have half of what your wives leave if they have no child, but if they have a child, then you shall have a fourth of what they leave after (payment of) any bequest they may have bequeathed or a debt; and they shall have the fourth of what you leave if you have no child, but if you have a child then they shall have the eighth of what you leave after (payment of) a bequest you may have bequeathed or a debt; and if a man or a woman leaves property to be inherited by neither parents nor offspring, and he (or she) has a brother or a sister, then each of them two shall have the sixth, but if they are more than that, they shall be sharers in the third after (payment of) any bequest that may have been bequeathed or a debt that does not harm (others); this is an ordinance from Allah: and Allah is Knowing, Forbearing.

And 4:176,

004.176
YUSUFALI: They ask thee for a legal decision. Say: Allah directs (thus) about those who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs. If it is a man that dies, leaving a sister but no child, she shall have half the inheritance: If (such a deceased was) a woman, who left no child, Her brother takes her inheritance: If there are two sisters, they shall have two-thirds of the inheritance (between them): if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), the male having twice the share of the female. Thus doth Allah make clear to you (His law), lest ye err. And Allah hath knowledge of all things.

PICKTHAL: They ask thee for a pronouncement. Say: Allah hath pronounced for you concerning distant kindred. If a man die childless and he have a sister, hers is half the heritage, and he would have inherited from her had she died childless. And if there be two sisters, then theirs are two-thirds of the heritage, and if they be brethren, men and women, unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females. Allah expoundeth unto you, so that ye err not. Allah is Knower of all things.

SHAKIR: They ask you for a decision of the law. Say: Allah gives you a decision concerning the person who has neither parents nor offspring; if a man dies (and) he has no son and he has a sister, she shall have half of what he leaves, and he shall be her heir she has no son; but if there be two (sisters), they shall have two-thirds of what he leaves; and if there are brethren, men and women, then the male shall have the like of the portion of two females; Allah makes clear to you, lest you err; and Allah knows all things.


When a man dies, leaving behind three daughters, his two parents and wife, they receive respective shares of 2/3 for the three daughters together, 1/3 for the parents together and 1/8 for the wife which adds up to more than is actually possible

Example two is that a man leaves only his mother, his wife and two sisters, then they receive 1/3 , 1/4 and 2/3 [the two sisters, 4:176], which again adds up to 15/12 of the available property.

How can allah tell them this is how much each will receive when it adds up to MORE than 100% of what is actually there, it is physically impossible - if you are left three cars you can`t give five of them away can you (because it`s impossible)?

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] PART SIXTEEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 527A]

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16 – 17, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, as Jesus (Yeshua) said at John 14:26, [AV] “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” And,Romans 15:4, [AV] “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” Shows the purpose of the entire Bible. And we must pay attention to the exhortations of the past per Hebrews 12:5, [AV] “And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:” Uf we pay attention to these per 2 Timothy 2:21, [AV] “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” And we warned to flee from the bad things at 1 Timothy 6:11, [AV] “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

[2] PART SIXTEEN OF SERIES APPARENT BIBLE CONTRADICTIONS VS. REAL CONTRADICTIONS IN THE QURAN:

Additional Contradictions in the Quran by Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza

And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation" (Quran 25:33).

More Errors in the Quran - Section 9

[[Note, exact quotes from 3 Qurans are being added to writings of Quranic scholar, Syed Kamran Mirza, to assist all in understanding his research product]]

9) Angels don`t protect, but they do:
The last of these brief contradictions (it`s taken me a while to compile these so don`t expect another list just yet looks at the role of angels in the error free quran.

Suras 2:107 and 29:22 tell us that "Besides Allah you have no protector nor helper".

Sura 2:107,

YUSUFALI: Knowest thou not that to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth? And besides Him ye have neither patron nor helper.

PICKTHAL: Knowest thou not that it is Allah unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; and ye have not, beside Allah, any guardian or helper?

SHAKIR: Do you not know that Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and that besides Allah you have no guardian or helper?

And,

Sura 29:22,

YUSUFALI: "Not on earth nor in heaven will ye be able (fleeing) to frustrate (his Plan), nor have ye, besides Allah, any protector or helper."

PICKTHAL: Ye cannot escape (from Him) in the earth or in the sky, and beside Allah there is for you no friend or helper.

SHAKIR: And you shall not escape in the earth nor in the heaven, and you have neither a protector nor a helper besides Allah.

But in Sura 41:3 the angels tell us that "We are your PROTECTORS in this life and the hereafter"

Sura 41:3,

YUSUFALI: A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Quran in Arabic, for people who understand;-

PICKTHAL: A Scripture whereof the verses are expounded, a Lecture in Arabic for people who have knowledge,

SHAKIR: A Book of which the verses are made plain, an Arabic Quran for a people who know:

and in Suras 13:11, 50:17 and 82:10 we are told angels guard and later that they protect (Sura 82:10).

Sura 13:11,

YUSUFALI: For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Allah does not change a people's lot unless they change what is in their hearts. But when (once) Allah willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.

PICKTHAL: For him are angels ranged before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's command. Lo! Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts; and if Allah willeth misfortune for a folk there is none that can repel it, nor have they a defender beside Him.

SHAKIR: For his sake there are angels following one another, before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's commandment; surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition; and when Allah intends evil to a people, there is no averting it, and besides Him they have no protector.

And,

Sura 50:17,

YUSUFALI: Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (and noted them), one sitting on the right and one on the left.

PICKTHAL: When the two Receivers receive (him), seated on the right hand and on the left,

SHAKIR: When the two receivers receive, sitting on the right and on the left.

And,

Sura 82:10,

YUSUFALI: But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,-

PICKTHAL: Lo! there are above you guardians,

SHAKIR: And most surely there are keepers over you

So, in summary, the quran (which is claimed to be 100% free of error) tells us....

Allah made man from lots of different things, that you can inherit more than you are ever left with physically, that Alexander the great was a pious muslim, that someone corrupted the Israelites hundreds of years before he or his country came into being, that Muhammed went somewhere which didn`t exist until AFTER he died, that EVERYTHING is made as part of a pair, that pharoah died chasing Moses, that Moses was spared his life while chasing Moses, Jesus` gospel was really given by Jesus 1400 years before He was born and that angels never disobey allah - except when they choose to.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 528A]

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Acts 17:26 – 27, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Genesis 5:2, [AV] “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” Clearly shows Almighty God (YHWH) created them, and that He wanted them to be per Genesis 1:28, [AV] “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” And as stated at
Deuteronomy 32:8, [AV] “When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.” And that bounds were placed on them per Psalms 74:17, [AV] “Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.” His intention is for the righteous to inherit the earth forever as shown at Isa 34:17, [AV] “And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.” Therefore, we should per Isaiah 55:6, [AV] “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:”

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Garcinia livingstonei (African mangosteen), lowveld mangosteen,Livingstone's garcinia or imbe) is a species of Garcinia, native to a broad area of tropical Africa, from Côte d'Ivoire east to Somalia, and south to South Africa.[1]
It is an evergreen small tree, growing to 6–18 m tall. The leaves are borne in opposite pairs or whorls of 3–4, each leaf blue-green, oval, 6–11 cm long and 3–5.5 cm broad. The flowers are produced in clusters on the stems. The fruit is a small, bright, orange, thin-skinned berry 1–4 cm diameter, with one single large seed; the small yield of edible fruit is pleasantly sweet, yet acidic, but also containing a latexthat some people find unpleasant.[2][3]

Cultivation and uses
A traditional food plant in Africa, this little-known fruit has potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare.[4]

It is mainly grown as an ornamental fruit, but is sometimes eaten. The juice is known for staining very badly. Mostly eaten fresh, it is also used in drinks. It can be grown in southern Florida.

Both a male and female plant are needed in order to obtain fruit, although both sexes can be grafted onto the same plant to achieve the same effect.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Jesus (Yeshua) also conformed this at Luke 6:20, [AV] “And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.” And 1 Corinthians 2:14, [AV] “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Therefore, we must per James 2:5, [AV] “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?”

[2] MURDER OF ONE'S DAUGHTER TACITLY APPROVED BY ISLAM,

The World News proves that Islam even tacitly approves of murdering your daughter if she gets raped, can you imagine? Why penalize the victim? Let's look at the evidence.

<<<"Turkey works to stop 'honor' killings
The government, under pressure from feminists and the European Union, responds at a level unheard of in the Islamic world.
By Tracy Wilkinson, Times Staff Writer
January 9, 2007
DIYARBAKIR, TURKEY - Desperately unhappy, 21-year-old Sahe Fidan left the husband she despised and sought refuge in her parents' home. They refused to take her in. A married woman can leave her husband only in a coffin, they told her.

Fidan returned to the husband, and she left him in a coffin. A few weeks ago, she was found hanged in the bathroom, her infant son strapped to her back with a sheet.

Her corpse was discovered when the baby, unharmed, began to cry. Fidan had committed suicide.

Or had she?

After her death in a village in southeastern Turkey, another version circulated. Some activists and officials suspect that Fidan may have joined the ranks of Turkish women forced to kill themselves, or whose slayings are disguised to look self-inflicted.

The killing of women and girls by male relatives who think the females have brought shame to the family's honor is an atrocity that has plagued Turkey and other Islamic countries for generations. Thousands of women have died, been attacked or compelled to commit suicide in so-called honor killings.

In Turkey, the government has finally taken action. Under pressure from an invigorated women's movement and eager to win approval from the European Union, the government has launched a major campaign against honor killings, at a level and with a breadth virtually unheard of in the Islamic world.

Turkish imams have joined pop music stars and soccer celebrities to produce TV spots and billboard ads condemning all forms of violence against women. Broaching a topic that remains largely taboo in many conservative societies, the nation's top Islamic authority has declared honor killing a sin.

Late last year, jail sentences for men and boys who commit the crime were stiffened, and new provisions in the penal code make it harder for a court to reduce sentences. (As recently as 10 months ago, in a typical case, the life sentence of a young man who had killed his sister was substantially reduced because the judges decided he had been "provoked." He had buried her up to her neck in rocks after she was impregnated in a rape.)

In cities and towns with the highest honor killing rates, officials working with advocacy groups are holding town hall meetings and setting up rescue teams and hotlines for endangered women and girls.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the head of a conservative, Islamist-rooted party, went before a gathering of the Organization of the Islamic Conference in November to argue for better treatment of women and to condemn honor killings as a scourge that must be eradicated from Islamic societies.

"We can say these murders are isolated incidents, yet we cannot turn a blind eye to such inhuman acts that are largely the product of ignorance," he said. "Discrimination against women is worse than racism. We must reject the treatment of women as second-class beings."

The challenge is enormous: fighting archaic customs based not so much on religion as on deep-seated tradition and feudal clan systems.

Many of the experts, social workers and officials involved speak of a new era of openness and willingness to confront the problem, but they caution that it will be a long time before attitudes are changed. There is no indication that the number of killings or forced suicides has dropped, though advocates say they feel they now have a better arsenal.

"On paper, we seem to have achieved a lot," Fatma Sahin, a lawmaker with the ruling party who oversaw the drafting of a 300-page report on honor killings, said in an interview in Ankara, the capital. "But when we go out into the field, we recognize that a lot more needs to be done."

A significant segment of the Turkish population defines all-important honor in terms of the chastity and obedience of each female member of a family. As "owners" of women, men must defend honor by safeguarding their bodies and sexuality.

In a United Nations poll conducted last year, 17% of Turkish men said they approved of honor killing. Many more approved of lesser punishments, one of the most common being the slicing off of a woman's nose.

Such attitudes persist in many segments of the Turkish population, especially in the Kurdish southeast. But local activism in behalf of women is also flourishing.

"This is a part of the country where it is not accepted that women work or travel, where they are not valued as individuals," said Canan Hancer Basturk, deputy governor of Diyarbakir. "But girls see the other side, modern Turkey, on TV or in the media, and with the rise in literacy, people's expectations are rising.

"So they want to break out of their shells, and that's where the clash comes between girls and their families, and for some boys too," she said. " 'Honor' is another way of clinging to values and resisting change."

Alarmed by the soaring number of women seeking help, the Diyarbakir government opened the region's first proper shelter for abused women in 2005.

Behind a metal gate on the forlorn northern outskirts of the city, the low-slung complex houses about 50 women. Its location is discreet and, theoretically at least, kept secret out of fear of attack by angry relatives. (The Times was given access on the condition that the women's names not be published.)

One resident was a tall, fair 16-year-old who said her father had ordered her to kill herself.

He had arranged for her marriage to a man she wanted nothing to do with, and she went along at first, long enough to become pregnant. Then she left her husband, hoping to join her true love. But he had married someone else. She returned to her parents' home.

Incensed, her father labeled her damaged goods and gave her a single option: suicide.

She fled to the police and was placed in the shelter, where she gave birth.

Many residents of the shelter were young, in their teens or early 20s, and had been raped; several were toting babies, the product of the rapes. A woman who is raped is often blamed for the crime and risks punishment, even death, at the hands of her relatives. Sometimes she is given the "option" of marrying her rapist, on the theory that no one else will want her and that the marriage wipes away the shame.

Only one of the rape victims interviewed said she thought she could go home again. "My parents know it wasn't my fault," she said. The woman was at the shelter under court order because the rapist was loose and considered a threat.

Sacide Akkaya, an official with KA-MER, the leading women's organization in southeastern Turkey, has seen a progression in the women she works with, from a resignation to violence as a part of their hard lives to a timid but growing willingness to challenge the status quo. It enables social workers to save more people, she said.

"I wouldn't say the volume of incidents has been reduced, but it is less secret now," Akkaya said. "The relatives of the women are often the ones who will tip off authorities, or maybe the neighbors will call. Even the men are starting to get it - many of the tipsters are men. That's what gives us so much hope."

Among the hundreds of honor killings in Turkey, it is impossible to quantify the forced suicides. A special U.N. rapporteur, Yakin Erturk, was dispatched to the country's south last year to investigate a rash of suicides. She concluded that some probably had been "instigated" and cited a host of contributing factors: forced and early marriages, denial of reproductive rights, poverty, migration and displacement, among others.

Victims say they've been ordered by relatives to kill themselves, locked in rooms with a gun or rope, watched over while they were expected to slit their wrists. The infraction can be as slight as a desire to work or the wearing of jeans, the sentence often decided in a family council.

Handan Coskun, a former journalist, started a women's center in Diyarbakir in response to suicides she began investigating several years ago, when the rate in southeastern Turkey was two to three times the national rate. There were dozens of cases, many not related to honor issues. One consistency was that far more females committed or attempted suicide than males, which is the opposite of the worldwide pattern.

Women typically feel isolation or alienation more acutely than men, Coskun said, especially if the family has been transplanted from its rural village to a city. Tens of thousands of families, primarily Kurds, were forced to move into southeastern cities during the Turkish army's fight against Kurdish guerrillas in the 1980s and '90s.

At not quite 5 feet tall, Coskun has had to shout down angry fathers as she rescued women and girls, or gone toe-to-toe with 17 armed clansmen who invaded her office looking for their female relative. She believes she and her team have prevented 17 killings in the last year.

"When we intervene with a family that seems likely to kill a daughter, we have to be very tough to show the same toughness that the family shows," she said.

Turkey's failure to improve the status of women has long been one of the impediments to its integration into Europe. Outsiders are watching to see whether the latest steps will bring real change.

"There is no evidence yet that we are changing the mentality," said Meltem Agduk, a Turkish expert on honor killings who works with the U.N. "The important thing is that people are not so quiet about the issue. And because of that, change will be more rapid than it has in the past.">>>.

This definitely is not in keeping with what Jesus (Yeshua) said at Matthew 22:37-40, "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." (Authorized King James Bible; AV) .

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] SELF-DEFENSE VS. INSULTS:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 531A]

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:2 Timothy 3:15 – 16, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Here we have an account with respect a disciple of Jesus (Yeshua) who had been taught the scriptures from childhood. This is mentioned at Acts 16:1, [AV] “Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek:” All, like Timothy (Timotheus) continued daily to search the scriptures which testified on Jesus (Yeshua) as shown at John 5:39, [AV] “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” Yes, as Jesus (Yeshua) was about to ascend to his Father, he stated, at John 14:26, [AV] “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” In fact, all things written were per Romans 15:4, [AV] “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] SELF-DEFENSE VS. INSULTS:

Self-defense, a Biblical view. The Bibles' view of self defense depends a lot on the circumstances surrounding the situation. First, it shows we should seek peace at all times with our fellow man and not return insult for insult. The Apostle Peter shows that we should seek peace with all and always be ready to give an answer to all, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16 ¶ Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing." (1 Peter 3:15-17 AV)

And Jesus Christ (Yeshua) clearly showed he was no pacifist and the Bible shows he will lead God's (Yahweh - JHWH) at the end-times; however, he stated, " But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" (Matthew 5:44 AV). Here he plainly shows we should love our enemies. With respect insults, he showed, " And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also." (Luke 6:29 AV); this clearly showed we must do all within our power to maintain peace with others including enduring insults and other abuses without reacting in a violent way. In other words, we must always keep our temper in check and often this is quite difficult to do.

Often instead of a kind inquiring question or comment you will be confronted by individuals with harsh demands or words. For example, when dealing with a person that 'blows-up' in a road rage incident over a wrong or perceived wrong, the individuals words are quite harsh and threatening and the natural tendency is to answer them in kind. This, however, should not be done as the situation could easily escalate into a violent confrontation. It is imperative that one take all steps to avoid a violent confrontation and failure to do so could lead to blood shed. There are many other situations that can arise that can lead to similar confrontations. The genuine follower will do all in his power to defuse such situations and this includes absorbing insults rather than also making them in retaliation as it takes too to make a fight. If violence can not be avoided, one may need to use the necessary force to protect him/her self which will be dealt with later.

Another situation that may arise is that someone in authority will want you to fight for him/her or his cause. Here the genuine Christian must remember he is a follower of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) and his father God. Long ago when Jesus Christ (Yeshua) was on earth he was questioned on whether to pay tax by his enemies ot entrap him, but he answered, "But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." (Matthew 22:18-21 AV). Here he showed we should render the governments things to the government, but God's things to God. Since the lives of genuine Christians belong to God and not to man, we should give them in his service not mans. Therefore, when governments and others seek to have us put our lives into dangerous situations for them; we must remember our lives belong to God and not to them. We must, " Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it." (1 Peter 3:11 AV), " Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it." (Psalms 34:14 AV). These scriptures clearly show it is our obligation if we are genuine Christians to seek peace and pursue it; therefore, we would not become a party or get involved with the wars of men and their other violence. We should remain neutral, remembering our lives belong to God and not to man. Of course this is up everyone's conscience, and each must make his/her own decision whether to obey God or man, " Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29 AV).

Clearly we are to make every effort to steer clear of situations that could result in violent confrontations as shown by Jesus Christ (Yeshua), "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison." (Matthew 5:21-25 AV). Some of the situations and possibilities that could lead to violent confrontations and bloodguilt have already been dealt with, and the scriptures are clear on the matter, " Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness." (Psalms 51:14 AV). We must work hard at maintaining a good consciousness, " And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." (Acts 24:16 AV). We must maintain a good conscience no matter how the militaristic minds and violence prone minds of this world may criticize us as genuine Christians. In his sermon on the mount Jesus Christ (Yeshua) clearly showed we should do on to others as we would want them to do onto us, the 'Golder Rule;' however, he went further and showed we should at all times love peace and pursue it, "Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. 38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. 43 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:36-41 AV).

Unfortunately, try as we might to avoid violent situations where we may need to defend ourselves, sometimes these situations may occur through no fault of our own. The Bible does recognize very limited situations where killing of a fellow man may be justified and one will not incur bloodguilt. In the case of a thief breaking in during the night whom the householder kills while defending his house, there results no bloodguilt upon the householder, "If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him. 3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft." (Exodus 22:2-3 AV). This scripture clearly shows the right to even kill a thief who comes at night since he can not be readily identified and also might be with weapon to kill the householder; however, if by day the thief could be easily identified and also whether he had a weapon and planned to use it. Moffatt's translation makes this even more clear, "If a thief is caught breaking into a house and struck so that he dies, the householder is not quilty; but if it was after dawn, the householder is guilty." Therefore if a householder delivers a fatal blow at night to a thief and it is reasonable under the circumstances no bloodguilt is incurred; whereas, killing the thief, unless he had a weapon and showed inclination to use it, during the day would be going too far and bloodguilt would be incurred.

Clearly, genuine Christians must not take the law into their own hands, and return an injury to others. However wen can postulate from Exodus 22:2-3 that if a householder was justified in striking a thief at night and would not incur bloodquilt, he/she would likewise have the right to defend his life or those of his/her loved ones and if this resulted in having to kill another who was actively intent on killing one or his loved ones and there was no other way of stopping him/her this would be reasonable under the circumstances. Killing one just to save property is not reasonable as revealed at, " For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26 AV), since what material item could be of equal value to a life?

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] SOME MUSLIMS DEFEND DISGUSTING SEX PRACTICES

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 532A]

Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? 24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written. Romans 2:21 – 24, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This point about not stealing is restated at Joshua 7:11, [AV] “Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.” And show that hypocrits are not doing Almighty God (YHWH) Will at Mark 12:40, [AV] “Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.”

But as shown at 1 Corinthians 6:9, [AV] “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,” And the Prophet Malachi delineates some of these wrongs at Malachi 3:8, [AV] “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.” Yes, many will not heed His laws per Psalms 78:10, [AV] “They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;”

[2] SOME MUSLIMS DEFEND DISGUSTING SEX PRACTICES

INTRODUCTION:

Some Muslims seem to be in favor of disgusting sex practices such as oral and anal sex, sodomy, homosexuality, etc. These same ones even try to twist the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, to support these disgusting practices.

ATTEMPTS AT SCRIPTURE TWISTING:

Her are some actual examples of their attempts to twist scripture,

Anal Sex in Accordance with God's Will

In fact, many Biblical passages allude to the act of anal sex between men and women. Lamentations 2:10 describes how "The virgins of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground," indicating how a virginal maidens should position themselves to receive anal sex. Another suggestive scripture tells of a woman's pride in her "valley" (referring to her buttocks and the cleft between them) and entices her lover to ejaculate against her backside: "How boastful you are about the valleys! O backsliding daughter who trusts in her treasures, {saying,} ' Who will come against me?' (Jeremiah 49:4) And in the Song of Songs, the lover urges his mate to allow him to enter her from behind: "Draw me after you, let us make haste." (Song of Solomon, 1:4)

"Isn't anal sex dirty?"

The Bible says, "To the pure, all things are pure." (Titus 1:15) The Lord created your body, and no part of it is imperfect or unclean. God also created our bodies for pleasure, and anal sex is just one of the many ways, including standard sexual intercourse, that we can enjoy this pleasure and share it with a partner.

Disgusting isn't it?

THE BIBLE' CORRECT TAKE ON DISGUSTING PRACTICES:

First, a definition of terms to assist the understanding of all:

Now let's look at the dictionary/encyclopedia definition of Sodomy and Homosexual

SODOMY:

[1] The American Heritage(r) Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

sodomy

Any of various forms of sexual intercourse held to be unnatural or abnormal, especially anal intercourse or bestiality.

[2] Glossary of Unusual Sexual Practices

Sodomy: oral or anal intercourse involving penetration with male, female, or animal
[source - The Encyclopedia of Unusual Sex Practices]

HOMOSEXUAL:

[3] The American Heritage(r) Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

Homosexual

Of, relating to, or having a sexual orientation to persons of the same sex.
Now let's look at Romans 1:27 and 28 and compare what it says to the definition for Sodomy and Homosexuality given by dictionaries and encyclopedias.

THE BIBLE'S TAKE ON THE MATTER:

Romans 1:27-28, "Their women have exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural[[A clear showing of Sodomy, note, the word unnatural contrasted to natural intercourse]], and their men in turn, giving up natural relations with women, burn with lust for one another; males behave indecently with males,[[A clear showing of Homosexuality, men burning in lust for other males]] and a paid in their own persons the fitting wage of such perversion. 28 Thus, because they have not seen fit to acknowledge God, he has given them up to their own depraved reason. This leads them to break all rules of conduct." (The New English Bible; NEB).

Colossians 3:5, "Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:" (Authorized King James Bible; AV)

1 Corinthians 6:18-19, "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" (AV) .

Galatians 5:19-20, "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies," (AV).

Hebrews 13:4, "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies," (AV).

1 Corinthians 6:9-10, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (AV).

WHAT BIBLE SCHOLARS SAY- IN BRIEF:

And here is what world renown Bible scholar Barnes had to say on the matter on Romans 1:27-28:

<<<"Verse 27. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Ver. 27. And likewise the men, etc. The sin which is here specified is that which was the shameful sin of Sodom, and which from that has been called sodomy. It would scarcely be credible that man had been guilty of a crime so base and so degrading, unless there was ample and full testimony to it. Perhaps there is no sin which so deeply shows the depravity of man as this; none which would so much induce one "to hang his head, and blush to think himself a man." And yet the evidence that the apostle did not bring a railing accusation against the heathen world, that he did not advance a charge which was unfounded, is too painfully clear. It has been indeed a matter of controversy whether paederasty, or the love of boys, among the ancients, was not a pure and harmless love, but the evidence is against it. See this discussed in Dr. Leland's "Advantage and Necessity of Revelation," vol. i. 49-56. The crime with which the apostle charges the Gentiles here was by no means confined to the lower classes of the people. It doubtless pervaded all classes, and we have distinct specifications of its existence in a great number of cases. Even Virgil speaks of the attachment of Corydon to Alexis, without seeming to feel the necessity of a blush for it. Maximus Tyrius (Diss. 10) says, that in the time of Socrates this vice was common among the Greeks; and is at pains to vindicate Socrates from it as almost a solitary exception. Cicero (Tuscul. Ques. iv. 84) says, that "Dicearchus had accused Plato of it, and probably not unjustly." He also says, (Tuscul. Q. iv. 33,) that the practice was common among the Greeks, and that their poets and great men, and even their learned men and philosophers, not only practised, but gloried in it. And he adds, that it was the custom, not of particular cities only, but of Greece in general. (Tuscul. Ques. v. 20.) Xenophon says, that "the unnatural love of boys is so common, that in many places it is established by the public laws." He particularly alludes to Sparta. (See Leland's Advantage, etc., i. 56.) Plato says that the Cretians practised this crime, and justified themselves by the example of Jupiter and Ganymede. (Book of Laws, i.) And Aristotle says, that among the Cretians there was a law encouraging that sort of unnatural love. (Arist. Politic. b. ii. ch. 10.) Plutarch says, that this was practised at Thebes, and at Ellis. He further says, that Solon, the great lawgiver of Athens, "was not proof against beautiful boys, and had not courage to resist the force of love." (Life of Solon.) Diogenes Laertins says that this vice was practised by the stoic Zeno. Among the Romans, to whom Paul was writing, this vice was no less common. Cicero introduces, without any mark of disapprobation, Cotta, a man of the first rank and genius, freely and familiarly owning to other Romans of the same quality, that this worse than beastly vice was practised by himself, and quoting the authority of ancient philosophers in vindication of it. (De Natura Decrum, b. i. eh. 28.) It appears from what Seneca says, (epis. 95,) that in his time it was practised openly at Rome, and without shame. He speaks of flocks and troops of boys, distinguished by their colours and nations; and says that great care was taken to train them up for this detestable employment. Those who may wish to see a further account of the morality in the pagan world may find it detailed in Tholick's "Nature and Moral Influence of Heathenism," in the Biblical Repository, vol. ii., and in Leland's Advantage and Necessity of the Christian Revelation. There is not the least evidence that this abominable vice was confined to Greece and Rome. If so common there-if it had the sanction even of their philosophers-it may be presumed that it was practised elsewhere, and that the sin against nature was a common crime throughout the heathen world. Navaratte, in his account of the empire of China, (book ii. ch. 6,) says that it is extremely common among the Chinese. And there is every reason to believe that, both in the old world and the new, this abominable crime is still practised. If such was the state of the pagan world, then surely the argument of the apostle is well sustained, that there was need of some other plan of salvation than was taught by the light of nature.

That which is unseemly. That which is shameful, or disgraceful.

And receiving in themselves, etc. The meaning of this doubtless is, that the effect of such base and unnatural passions was to enfeeble the body, to produce premature old age, disease, decay, and an early death. That this is the effect of the indulgence of licentious passions, is amply proved by the history of man. The despots who practise polygamy, and keep harems in the east, are commonly superannuated at forty years of age; and it is well known, even in Christian countries, that the effect of licentious indulgence is to break down and destroy the constitution. How much more might this be expected to follow the practice of the vice specified in the verse under examination! God has marked the indulgence of licentious passions with his frown. Since the time of the Romans and the Greeks, as if there had not been sufficient restraints before, he has originated a new disease, which is one of the most loathsome and distressing which has ever afflicted man, and which has swept off millions of victims. But the effect on the body was not all. It tended to debase the mind; to sink man below the level of the brute; to destroy the sensibility; and to '' sear the conscience as with a hot iron." The last remnant of reason and conscience, it would seem, must be extinguished in those who would indulge in this unnatural and degrading vice. See Suetonius' Life of Nero, 28. [source - Barnes New Testament Notes] >>>.

ATTEMPTED JUSTIFICATION OF DISGUSTING PRACTICES BY MUSLIMS:

Now let's look at how some Muslims try to justify their practice of disgusting oral and anal sex by sidestepping and trying to paint others in a bad light and my reply to such obfuscation and deceit.

<<<" In Moslem Countries, although the Islamic Shari'ah is not enforced, We do
NOT have Single Moms + We do NOT have Live-in Couples (living without
wedlock) + We do NOT have Same Sex Marriages.">>>.

And, My reply to their sidestepping and deceitful obfuscation,

<<<" So, you execute them as they did to a Saudi Arabian Princess that got pregnant from her boy friend some years ago. Now is that supposed to be better or is that just a Sunni act?

Also, is killing victims of rape, i.e., murder, better than the wrongs of apostate (counterfeit) so called Christians? Some Muslims even kill their daughters for getting raped or want them dead just because they made the mistake of marrying an abusive husband as revealed by Tracy Wilkinson, Times Staff Writer, on January 9, 2007, in a report,
<<<"DIYARBAKIR, TURKEY - Desperately unhappy, 21-year-old Sahe Fidan left the husband she despised and sought refuge in her parents' home. They refused to take her in. A married woman can leave her husband only in a coffin, they told her. Fidan returned to the husband, and she left him in a coffin. A few weeks ago, she was found hanged in the bathroom, her infant son strapped to her back with a sheet....

The killing of women and girls by male relatives who think the females have brought shame to the family's honor is an atrocity that has plagued Turkey and other Islamic countries for generations. Thousands of women have died, been attacked or compelled to commit suicide in so-called honor killings...

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the head of a conservative, Islamist-rooted party, went before a gathering of the Organization of the Islamic Conference in November to argue for better treatment of women and to condemn honor killings as a scourge that must be eradicated from Islamic societies.[[Openly admitted that it exist.]]...

In a United Nations poll conducted last year, 17% of Turkish men [[Muslims.]]said they approved of honor killing. Many more approved of lesser punishments, one of the most common being the slicing off of a woman's nose...

"This is a part of the country where it is not accepted that women work or travel, where they are not valued as individuals," said Canan Hancer Basturk, deputy governor of Diyarbakir." [[So much for Islam's claim of equal rights and treatment for women.]]...

One resident was a tall, fair 16-year-old who said her father had ordered her to kill herself.

He had arranged for her marriage to a man she wanted nothing to do with, and she went along at first, long enough to become pregnant. Then she left her husband, hoping to join her true love. But he had married someone else. She returned to her parents' home...

Among the hundreds of honor killings in Turkey, it is impossible to quantify the forced suicides. A special U.N. rapporteur, Yakin Erturk, was dispatched to the country's south last year to investigate a rash of suicides. She concluded that some probably had been "instigated" and cited a host of contributing factors: forced and early marriages, denial of reproductive rights, poverty, migration and displacement, among others.

Victims say they've been ordered by relatives to kill themselves, locked in rooms with a gun or rope, watched over while they were expected to slit their wrists. The infraction can be as slight as a desire to work or the wearing of jeans, the sentence often decided in a family council....">>>.

This definitely is not in keeping with what Jesus (Yeshua) said at Matthew 22:37-40, "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." (Authorized King James Bible; AV).

CONCLUSION:

With respect to the deceitful practice of trying to trist scriptures of the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, to justify such disgusting practices, it makes you pity their their poor wives and girl friends.

What is being done in many Muslim lands is just unconscionable, yet was admitted to by some of the highest officials in Turkey as previously shown.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] THE BOOK OF ENOCH IS NOT AN INSPIRED WRITING:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 533A]

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: Deuteronomy 6:4 – 6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

We should love Almighty God (YHWH) with all our heart and per Deuteronomy 5:7, [AV] “Thou shalt have none other gods before me.” Jesus (Yeshua) echoed the same truth as recorded at Matthew 22:37, [AV] “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”

This same thought was expressed at Deuteronomy 11:13, [AV] “And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,” But per Mark 12:30, [AV] “And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] THE BOOK OF ENOCH IS NOT AN INSPIRED WRITING:

INTRODUCTION:

While the Book of Enoch is NOT an inspired writing of the word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, it is an important writing as it, like the four books of Macabbabees - 1 Macabbabees, 2 Macabbabees, 3 Macabbabees, 4 Macabbabees, fill in an important part of history between the ending of the Old Testament in approximately 443 BC and the beginning of the New Testament in approximately 41 AD with the Gospel of Matthew.

In fact, some maintain it is referred to in the Bible by various book writers as is the Book of Jasher, another NONE inspired writing which likewise is NOT apart of the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible. The Book of Jasher is referenced as follows in the Bible:

Joshua 10:13, "And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.." (Authorized King James Bible; AV).

2Samuel 1:18, "(Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.) " (AV).

However, reference in the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, of a book in no way makes or infers that it is an inspired writing. With respect, the Book of Enoch, I could find no reference to it in the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, although some claim that Jude 1:14," And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints," (AV) is just such a reference. Numerous Bibles read similarly, but none seem to qualify it as a book, but seem to deal with Enoch as only a person of faith. Same holds for all the other places where the name Enoch appears in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE APOCRYPHA IS:

Now an explanation of what the apocrypha is needs to be given to help all understand.

First, let's consider what they are as defined by the Columbia Encyclopedia, sixth edition, by Columbia University Press. This encyclopedia defines the Apocrypha as, "(pk´rf) (KEY) [Gr.,=hidden things], term signifying a collection of early Jewish writings excluded from the canon of the Hebrew scriptures. It is not clear why the term was chosen." In reality they were nothing but uninspired writings, many purporting to be written by other than who was actually their author, or basically illegitimate and lacking credence. In fact, the real author of only one of the Apocrypha is actually known. Some religions, unfortunately, have included some of the Apocrypha in their Bibles, but even these were few in number. A list of most of the Apocrypha follows:

1 Clement, 1st Apocalypse of James, 2 Clement, 2nd Apocalypse of James, 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Acts of Andrew, Acts of Apollonius, Acts of Carpus, Acts of John,Acts of Paul, Acts of Perpetua and Felicitas, Acts of Peter, Acts of Peter and the Twelve, Acts of Pilate, Acts of the Apostles, Acts of Thomas, Additions to the Book of Esther, Anonymous Anti-Montanist. Anti-Marcionite Prologues, Apelles, Apocalypse of John, Apocalypse of Peter, Apocryphon of John, Apollonius, Apology of Aristides, Aristo of Pella, Ascension of Isaiah, Athenagoras of Athens, Authoritative Teaching, Bardesanes, Baruch, Basilides, Eel and the Dragon, Book of Elchasai, Book of Thomas the Contender, Books of Jeu, Caius, Celsus, Christian Sibyllines, Claudius Apollinaris, Clement of Alexandria, Colossians, Coptic Apocalypse of Paul, Coptic Apocalypse of Peter, Dialogue of the Savior, Diatessaron, Didache, Didascalia, Dionysius of Corinth, Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth, Dura-Europos Gospel Harmony, Ecclesiasticus, or the Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach, Egerton Gospel, Epiphanes On Righteousness, Epistle of Barnabas, Epistle of Mathetes to Diognetus, Epistula Apostolorum, Excerpts of Theodotus, Fayyum Fragment, Fifth and Sixth Books of Esra, Fronto, Galen, Gospel of Judas, Gospel of Mary, Gospel of Peter, Gospel of Philip, Gospel of the Ebionite, Gospel of the Egyptians, Gospel of the Hebrews, Gospel of the Nazoreans, Gospel of the Savior, Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Truth, Hegesippus, Heracleon, Hippolytus of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Infancy Gospel of James, Infancy Gospel of Thomas, Inscription of Abercius, Irenaeus of Lyons, Isidore, Judith, Julius Cassianus, Justin Martyr, Kerygmata Petrou, Letter from Vienna and Lyons, Letter of Jeremiah, Letter of Peter to Philip, Lost Sayings Gospel Q, Lucian of Samosata, Mara Bar Serapion, Marcion, Marcus Aurelius, Martyrdom of Polycarp, Maximus of Jerusalem, Melchizedek, Melito of Sardis, Muratorian Canon, Naassene Fragment, Octavius of Minucius Felix, Odes of Solomon, Ophite Diagrams, Origen, Oxyrhynchus 1224 Gospel, Oxyrhynchus 840 Gospel, Pantaenus, Papias, Passion Narrative, Passion of the Scillitan Martyrs , Philostratus, Pistis Sophia, Pliny the Younger, Polycarp to the Philippians, Polycrates of Ephesus, Prayer of Azariah and the Song of the Three Jews, Prayer of Manasseh, Preaching of Peter, Ptolemy, Quadratus of Athens, Rhodon, Secret Book of James, Secret Mark, Serapion of Antioch, Shepherd of Hermas, Signs Gospel, Sophia of Jesus Christ, Suetonius, Susanna, Tacitus, Tatian's Address to the Greeks, The Additions to the Book of Daniel, Tertullian, Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, Theophilus of Antioch, Theophilus of Caesarea, Tobit, Traditions of Matthias, Treatise on the Resurrection, Trimorphic Protennoia, Valentinus, Victor I, Wisdom of Solomon, etc.

As can be seen many of these none illegitimate books try to give themselves credence by closely mimicking the names of actual legitimate canonical books of the Bible. These books are often called the pseudepigrapha? The term is a transliteration of the Greek plural noun that literally means "with false superscription". According to Webster's Third New International Dictionary (p. 1830), the term can be defined as, "spurious works purporting to emanate from biblical characters". The Random House Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language defines the term as, "Certain writings (other than the canonical books and the Apocrypha) professing to be Biblical in character, but not considered canonical or inspired. These are NOT lost books, just NOT legitimate books of Bible cannon.

THE VALUE OF SOME UNINSPIRED BOOKS:

However, a few of these uninspired books have value from a historical point of view in that they fill in a time period not covered in the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible. The Book of Enoch, - 1 Macabbabees, 2 Macabbabees, 3 Macabbabees, and 4 Macabbabees are examples of such apocrypha books.

For example, the Book of Enoch, as shown by the Internet column Frankly Answered Questions - FAQs, as follows:
<<<" The Book of Enoch is a book written between the Old and New Testaments. Probable date of writing was between 150-80 B.C. Copies of the Book of Enoch have been found among the Dead Sea scrolls. If this date is accurate, obviously the Book of Enoch was not written by the real Enoch who lived before the flood.
Your question raises the whole issue of what books are inspired by God and what books are not. There are many other Jewish writings from this time period which are like the book of Enoch, such as the books of Maccabees, The Wisdom of Solomon, Judith, Tobit, etc. These books give supposed prophesies, visions, and history of the Jewish people between the Testaments. Protestants usually call these books the Apocrypha (Greek, apokruphos = "hidden") and do not consider them inspired writings.
However, it's not just Protestants that think the book of Enoch is suspect. The Roman Catholic Church doesn't consider the book inspired either. The Roman church does include books in their Bible that Protestants don't, but Enoch is not one of them. So this is not an issue that divides Roman Catholics and Protestants.
Through the years some translations of the Bible have included the Book of Enoch and other Jewish works; other translations have not. The Douay version of the Bible was one of those translations that included parts of the Apocrypha and also in this case, the Book of Enoch.
Now back to Jude's quotation from the Book of Enoch. Jude's quotation of the book of Enoch does not mean that Jude considered it inspired. The book of Enoch was a well respected writing among some of the Jews in New Testament times. Even though it was not inspired, it contains some truth (and some falsehood - like angels marrying humans) like most books. Jude simply uses a passage from the book of Enoch to prove his point about the coming judgment of wicked men. It would be similar to me appealing to a book by some famous author: "Even Tim LaHaye in the Left Behind series talks about the judgment of wicked men when he says...".
Other New Testament quotations from, or allusions to, non-Biblical works include Paul's quotations of Aratus (Acts 17:28), Menander (1 Corinthians 15:33) and Epimenides (Titus 1:12). Such usage in no way suggest that the quotations, or the books from which they were taken, are divinely inspired. It only means that the Biblical author found the quotations to be helpful confirmation, clarification, or illustration.[source - Frankly Answered Questions - FAQs , http://www.new-life.net/faq013.htm ]

R. H. Charles who actually translated the Book of Enoch had this to say about it,
<<<"The Book of Enoch, written during the second century B.C.E., is one of the most important non-canonical apocryphal works, and probably had a huge influence on early Christian, particularly Gnostic, beliefs. Filled with hallucinatory visions of heaven and hell, angels and devils, Enoch introduced concepts such as fallen angels, the appearance of a Messiah, Resurrection, a Final Judgement, and a Heavenly Kingdom on Earth. Interspersed with this material are quasi-scientific digressions on calendrical systems, geography, cosmology, astronomy, and meteorology." [source - The Book of Enoch. by R.H. Charles in 1917 , http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/ ]>>>.

Also the Encyclopedia Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says,
<<<"The Book of Enoch is a title given to several works that attribute themselves to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah; that is, Enoch son of Jared (Genesis 5:18). Enoch is also one of the two people in the Bible taken up to heaven while he is alive, as the Bible says "Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him."(Genesis 5:24) . (There are also three other characters named Enoch in the Bible: the son of Cain (Gen. 4:17), the son of Midian (Gen. 25:4), and the son of Reuben (Gen. 46:9; Ex. 6:14). The last two are transcribed "Hanoch" in the modern translations).
Most commonly, the phrase Book of Enoch refers to 1 Enoch, which is wholly extant only in the Ethiopic language. There are also 2 other books called Enoch, 2 Enoch (surviving only in Old Slavonic, c. 1st century; Eng. trans. by R. H. Charles (1896) [1][2]) and 3 Enoch (surviving in Hebrew, c. 5th-6th century[3].) The numbering of these texts has been applied by scholars to distinguish the texts from one another. The remainder of this article deals with 1 Enoch only.
Most modern scholars consider the Enochic literature to be pseudepigraphal.[citation needed]
Whilst this book does not form part of the Canon of Scripture for the larger Christian Churches, various groups, including the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the Coptic Church of Alexandria, regard parts or all of 1 Enoch to be inspired Scripture. The currently known texts of this work are usually dated to Maccabean times (ca. 160s BC).

The book consists of five quite distinct major sections:
? The Book of Watchers (1 Enoch 1 - 36)
? The Book of Parables (1 Enoch 37 - 71) (Also called the Similitudes of Enoch)
? The Book of the Heavenly Luminaries (1 Enoch 72 - 82) (Usually abbreviated to The Book of Luminaries. Also called the Astronomical Book)
? The Dream Visions (1 Enoch 83 - 90) (Also called the Book of Dreams)
? The Epistle of Enoch (1 Enoch 91 - 108)
According to some recent scholars,[1][2] these five sections were originally independent works, themselves a product of much editoral arrangement, and were only later redacted into what we now call 1 Enoch. However, this view is opposed by many scholars who maintain the literary integrity of the Book of Enoch, one of the most recent (1990) being Wossenie Yifru.
A great deal of the undercurrent to the narrative of the sections has been claimed to be concerned with the era of the Maccabees and it is for that reason that these western scholars date the sections as having originated during or after the 2nd century BC, although these assertions have not proved convincing to all concerned, for what they say is lack of any legitimate evidence of Maccabean-era authorship. 1 Enoch 6-11, part of the Book of Watchers, is thought to have been the original core of that Book, around which the remainder was later added, not least because Enoch is not mentioned in it.

The Book of Parables appears to be based on the Book of Watchers, but presenting a later development of the idea of final judgement - rather than being a final judgement of the fallen angels, the Book of Parables instead presents a final judgement of earthly kings. The Book of Parables contains several references to a Son of Man, as well as messianic themes, and has only been found in Christian editions of 1 Enoch, so several scholars have taken the view that this section dates from more Christian times. However, since the term was also just a Jewish way of saying human, and since the final chapters of the section appear to identify Enoch himself as the Son of Man in question, the work may be earlier, and a number of academics have proposed that the Book of Parables may be as early as the late 1st century BC.

The Book of Dreams contains a vision of a history of Israel all the way down to the revolt of the Maccabees, leading scholars to date it to Maccabean times.

Before the discovery at Qumran (among the Dead Sea Scrolls) of fragments from 1 Enoch, there was some dispute about whether the Greek text was an original Christian production, or whether it was a translation from an Aramaic text redacted in Jewish circles. The chief argument for a Christian author was the occurrence of references to the Messiah as the Son of Man, however such references can also appear in Jewish texts around the turn of the era. The Ethiopian Church considers its Ethiopic version to be the original, since it is the only complete version, while the other languages only have different fragments of the work. Despite this, the majority of western scholars now claim a 3rd century BC Jewish authorship for its earliest parts. Before the Qumran discovery, scholars had been unwilling to date it any earlier than the next earliest known reference.
Józef Milik has suggested that the "Book of Giants" found amongst the Dead Sea Scrolls should be part of the collection, appearing after the Book of Watchers. For various reasons, this theory has not been widely accepted." [source - The Encyclopedia Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia].

Likewise the four books of Maccabbabees, 1 Macabbabees, 2 Macabbabees, 3 Macabbabees, and 4 Macabbabees contain a lot of valuable historical information that fills in the time period between the ending of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New testament.
Interestingly and paradoxically the Roman Catholic Bible includes 1 Macabbabees and 2 Macabbabees, but does not include 3 Macabbabees and 4 Macabbabees. This clearly shows there is a problem with the Catholic Bible since if two of them are mistakenly considered inspired by them, they should all be. Obviously, none of the books of Macabbabees is inspired; therefore, none should be included in any Bible, i.e., they are all aprocypha.

THE EXTERNAL BOOKS QUOTED IN THE BIBLE:

Also, There are many external books quoted by inspired Bible writers as references. Many are, "not aware that the Old Testament authors depended upon other writings as their sources which they freely admit. Among these are: the Book of the Wars of Yahweh (Num. 21:14), the Book of the Jashar (Josh 10:13; 2 Sam. 1:18), the Book of the Acts of Solomon (1 Ki 14:19; 2 Chr 33:18), the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah (1 Ki 14:29, 15:7), the Annals of Samuel the Seer (1 Chr 29:29), the History of Nathan the Prophet (2 Chr 9:29), the Annals of Shemaiah the Prophet and Iddo the Seer (2 Chr. 12:15), the Annals of Jehu the Son of Hanani (2 Chr. 20:34), and others. Some teach that Moses compiled the Book of Genesis from other writings that surely had to have been handed down and preserved by his forefathers. Genesis can be broken down into eleven separate history books, each being separated by colophons at the conclusion of the books. This is known to have been a popular style for such ancient writings. ...According to this theory we have eleven separate books having the following authors: Adam, Noah, and eight other authors which Moses merely compiled into one book. [source= Ronald G. Fanter Cutting Edge Ministries].

One of these books is still existent today, the Book of Jashar or as it is sometimes called the Book of the Just, and another, the Book of the Wars of Yahweh, is actually thought my most scholars to actually be the Book of Jashar. The Book of Jashar is quite interesting, but one must be careful in obtaining a copy as there are counterfeit books masquerading as the Book of Jashar which are not. Also, there is a counterfeit Book of the Wars of Yahweh which is of course a fake since as previously said, this book is thought to just be another name for the Book of Jashar.

CONCLUSION:

Just because a writing, a book, is quoted or referenced by an inspired writer in the word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, in no way makes it an inspired writing. To understand what is an inspired writing, we should consider, the Bible was NOT written by one person, but had over 40 individual writers who wrote under divine inspiration/guidance putting the thoughts of God (YHWH) into the words of men much as transcribing secretaries today taking transcription and then later typing it out. In other words one real author, God (YHWH), and many scribes each of whom wrote in his own style over a period of approximately 1,600 years. All of what people call or consider inconsistencies are really not such, but most often just a problem of translation and/or understanding, i.e., lack of understanding of what the original writer writing in his own language and culture meant/said in his original writing. What is remarkable, is the writers over such a period of time all wrote in harmony when even most posters on threads on this forum can not even stay on track or subject over a period of a few days and/or weeks at most with the original subject of the thread. This fact of harmony over a period so great as to almost stagger the imagination shows that it had one guiding force or author who divinely inspired its writers as humans of their own volition can not keep on track over short periods of time.


To wit, the Bible is the ONLY book God (YHWH) ever inspired men to write as his scribes. In other words, God is its author and men only put his thoughts given to them by divine inspiration into their own words, the words of men. Not only that, all the other writers of later so called religious guidance books borrowed from it and made changes in accord with their strong man or so called prophet. Take the example of Joseph Smith who borrowed from it to write the Book of Mormon, but failed to give credit or source to the Bible and twisted some borrowed things into bizarre distortions. Other examples are of course the bizarre writings of David Koresh the Prophet of the Branch Dividians of Waco, Texas; and the Quran, etc.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.



[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 534A]

According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 1 Corinthians 3:10 – 13, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, the foundation of the genuine congregation of Christ will be founded on him, and he desires all true followers to per Romans 15:20, [AV] “Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:” As stated at 1 Peter 4:11, [AV] “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

Jesus (Yeshua) was to be the cornerstone of the genuine Christian congregation per 1 Peter 2:6, [AV] “Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Garcinia madruno (charichuelo) is a fruit-producing tree species from the rainforests of Central and South America.[1] The leaves are dark green and leathery. The fruit looks like a shriveled droopy lemon, and has a similar rind. The interior is soft white pulp and has a popular, slightly citrusy taste people have compared to a sweet santol fruit or lemony cotton candy. The species was formerly included in the genus Rheedia, which has since been absorbed into Garcinia, as Rheedias species are now known as "new world mangosteens".

Cultivation
Garcinia madruno is well adapted to a wide variety of soils, tolerating even poor soils or heavy clay. It is a slow grower and takes about 5 to 7 years to fruit. When young, it must be protected from frosts and it will not fruit in cold areas.
Distribution
The fruit is not very well known outside of South America and a few backyard growers in South Florida.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] MANY MUSLIMS WHEN CORNERED BY REALITY RESORT TO A PLAY ON WORDS

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 535A]

And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. Genesis 8:21, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) is not satisfied with animal sacrifices, but wants the genuine love and obedience from the created. This is clearly stated at Hebrews 13:16, [AV] “But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” But most men were not obedient to their creator as shown at Genesis 6:6, [AV], “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” Yes, God searches for genuine followers with the right heart condition as testified to at Genesis 31:7, [AV] “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.” Why? Because as the Apostle Matthew wrote under inspiration at Matthew 15:19, [AV] “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:”

[2] MANY MUSLIMS WHEN CORNERED BY REALITY RESORT TO A PLAY ON WORDS:

INTRODUCTION:

Many Muslims when cornered by reality and fact resort to a play on words, Logomachy, to avoid seeing the reality, the truth, per John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (Authorized King James Bible; AV).

For example they will say that "Allah," is the Arabic word for 'god' which it is not or that Mosque means a place of prostration implying it is not a proper name (noun), but none of that is in line with how proper names and nouns are constructed in Semitic languages. Names and words for specific items/buildings in Semitic languages such as Arabic are many times made up of two or more words. They well know this, but use this trickery or deceit to avoid reality.

Let's look at some specific examples that illustrate this fact.

EXAMPLE ONE FROM HEBREW A SEMITIC LANGUAGE:

When Moses asks, in response to the calling of God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?" He is first given a description and told to tell the sons of Israel that "I AM the One I AM" ???? ??? ?????, or "I AM whatever I need to become".(Exodus 3:13) This phrase is shown to be the meaning of the name when, in poetic parallel "I AM (?????) has sent you." is replaced by the name. "Say to the Israelites, 'YHWH, the God of your fathers-the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob-has sent me to you.' This is MY NAME forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation."(Exodus 3:15).
According to one Jewish tradition, the Tetragrammaton is related to the causative form, the imperfect state, of the Hebrew verb ???? (ha•wah, "to be, to become"), meaning "He will cause to become" (usually understood as "He causes to become"). Compare the many Hebrew and Arabic personal names which are 3rd person singular imperfective verb forms starting with "y", e.g. Hebrew Yôsêph = Arabic Yazîd = "He [who] adds"; Hebrew Yi?yeh = Arabic Yahyâ = "He [who] lives".

And,

<<<"Another tradition regards the name as coming from three different verb forms sharing the same root YWH, the words HYH haya ????: "He was"; HWH howê ????: "He is"; and YHYH yihiyê ?????: "He will be". This is supposed to show that God is timeless, as some have translated the name as "The Eternal One". Other interpretations include the name as meaning "I am the One Who Is." This can be seen in the traditional Jewish account of the "burning bush" commanding Moses to tell the sons of Israel that "I AM (?????) has sent you." (Exodus 3:13-14) Some suggest: "I AM the One I AM" ???? ??? ?????, or "I AM whatever I need to become". This may also fit the interpretation as "He Causes to Become." Many scholars believe that the most proper meaning may be "He Brings Into Existence Whatever Exists" or "He who causes to exist'".[source - Answers.com - world's greatest encyclodictionalmaanacapedia, http://www.answers.com/topic/tetragrammaton]>>>.

And,

<<<" Then, too, we must keep in mind that names then had real meaning and were not just "labels" to identify an individual as today. Moses knew that Abram's name (meaning "Father Is High (Exalted)") was changed to Abraham (meaning "Father of a Crowd (Multitude)"), the change being made because of God's purpose concerning Abraham. So, too, the name of Sarai was changed to Sarah and that of Jacob to Israel; in each case the change revealed something fundamental and prophetic about God's purpose concerning them. Moses may well have wondered if Jehovah would now reveal himself under some new name to throw light on his purpose toward Israel. Moses' going to the Israelites in the "name" of the One who sent him meant being the representative of that One, and the greatness of the authority with which Moses would speak would be determined by or be commensurate with that name and what it represented. (Compare Ex 23:20, 21; 1Sa 17:45.) So, Moses' question was a meaningful one.
God's reply in Hebrew was: ´Eh•yeh' ´Asher' ´Eh•yeh'. Some translations render this as "I AM THAT I AM." However, it is to be noted that the Hebrew verb ha•yah', from which the word ´Eh•yeh' is drawn, does not mean simply "be." Rather, it means "become," or "prove to be.'"[source - Insight on the Scriptures, Vol. 2]>>>.

Thus as can be seen, in Semitic languages proper names are made up of words strung together. The proper noun or name may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up. This will clearly be shown with respect to 'Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah,"' and its relationship to the two words making it up.

ALLAH, AND ILAH AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP IN ARABIC:

As stated in the last part, in Semitic languages proper names are made up of words strung together. The proper noun or name may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up. This will clearly be shown with respect to 'Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah,"' and its relationship to the two words making it up.

Scholar Syed Abul Ala Maududi said, with respect one of the words, 'ilah,' which is the Arabic word for 'god' and is one of the words used to make the proper Arabic name "Allah,".
<<<"The root of this word consists of the three (Arabic) letters, alif, lam, and ha and the connotations of various derivations, as one finds in lexicons are as follows:

Became confused or perplexed.

Achieved peace and mental calm by seeking refuge with someone or establishing relations with him.

Became frightened of some impending mishap or disaster, and someone gave him the necessary shelter.

Turned to another eagerly, due to the intensity of his feelings for him.

The lost offspring of the she-camel rushed to snuggle up to its mother on finding it. Became hidden, or concealed. Also, got elevated.

Adored, offered worship to.

If we reflect upon these original meanings, we can gain the necessary idea of how the verb came to mean the act of worship and the noun to denote the object of worship. There are four considerations to bear in mind in this connection :

1. Foremost among the factors which engender a sentiment of some degree of adoration for some one is a person's own state of being in distress or need. He cannot even conceive of worshiping someone unless he has reason to believe that someone to be in a position to remove his distress, to fulfill his needs, to give him shelter and protect him in time of danger, and soothe his troubled heart.

2. It goes without saying that the above belief is accompanied by a belief also in the superiority of the other in status, power, and strength.

3. It is also a matter of fact that where any of the needs of a human being are met under the ordinary process of give and take, which takes place perceptibly before one's own eyes, it leads to no sense of reverence, much less of adoration, for the other. For example, if I should be in need of money and, having applied for, and been given a job, am paid for it, since the whole transaction would take place within the full ken of my senses, and I would be fully aware of the circumstances or the reason for giving me the money, I would experience not the slightest desire to offer my employer any adoration. That sentiment arises only when there is some element of mystery surrounding the personality, the power, or the ability of the other to fulfill peoples' needs or to influence events. That is why the word chosen to denote an object of worship includes in its meanings the senses of mystery, perplexity, and superiority in status, etc.

4. Lastly, it is only natural that if one believes another to be in a position to fulfill one's needs, to provide shelter and protection, to soothe a disturbed heart and fill it with peace and calm, one turns eagerly to that person as a matter of course.

We may therefore safely conclude from the above that the connotation of the word ilah includes the capacities to fulfill the needs of others, to give them shelter and protection, to relieve their minds of distress and agitation, superiority, and the requisite authority and power to do all these, to be mysterious in some way or hidden from men's eyes, and the turning of men eagerly to him.

The Pre-Islamic Concept

Having discussed the various literal senses of the word, let us now see what the pre-Islamic concepts of ilah were, and which of these the Qur'an strove to reject :

And they have taken for their ilahs others than Allah, that they may according to their reckoning be a source of strength to them (or that coming under their protection may confer security).
(19 : 81) Surat Mariam

And they have taken others than Allah as their ilahs hoping that they would help when needed.
(36:74) Surat Ya'aseen

From these two verses we learn that the Arabs of the Jahiliyyah (the pre-Islamic period of Ignorance) believed that those whom they regarded as ilahs were their patrons, would come to their rescue in time of danger or difficulty, and that by placing themselves under their protection they rendered themselves safe from fear, molestation or harm.

And when the Decree of your Lord had gone forth (and the time came for its execution), the ilahs they used to invoke instead of Allah proved of no avail to them and contributed only to their Doom.
(11 : 101) Surat Hood

And those whom the people call to instead of Allah have not created aught, but are themselves creatures. Dead they are, and not alive, and they know not when they would be raised from their state, the real ilah is the One and Only Ilah.
(18 : 20, 21) Surat Al kahf

Invoke not; or pray to, any ilah along with Allah. There is no ilah but He.2
(28 : 88) Surat Al Kassas

And those who, instead of praying to Allah, pray to His supposed associates do but follow suppositions and idle guesses.
(10:66) Surat younus

These verses point to three aspects. The first is that the Arabs used to address their prayers to those whom they regarded as their ilahs and invoke them in times of distress or for fulfillment of any of their needs. The second is that these ilahs included not only Jinns, angels, and gods, but dead humans too, as one can see from the second of the above verses. The third is that they believed that these ilahs could hear their prayers and could come to their rescue.


It seems desirable to clear up one point, at this stage, about the nature of the prayer made to the ilah or ilahs and the help or succor sought of them. If I feel thirsty, and call to my servant to give me some water, or am unwell and call for a doctor for treatment, my summons to them does not constitute du'a, that is, it has no similarity to a prayer sent up to a deity, nor does this make either the servant or the doctor into an ilah. Both these are common, in everyday happenings, with nothing of the supernatural about them. However, if I should, while feeling thirsty or unwell, call to some saint or god instead of the servant or a doctor, that obviously would amount to treating the saint or god as an ilah and to my addressing a du'a to him. Addressing a prayer to a saint confined to his grave hundreds or even thousands of miles away3 clearly indicates that I believe him--though dead--to be possessed of the power to listen to a prayer at such a distance or to otherwise being aware of things so far off or, if one may use the appropriate Arabic words, to be both samee and baseer 4. My action would clearly imply belief in their exercising such a way over the realm of creation as to be able to have the water reach me or to make me recover from my illness. In the case of a god, my prayer would mean that I believe him to possess power over water and over health and sickness, and to therefore arrange, by supernatural means, to fulfill my needs. Thus, the basis on which a prayer is addressed to someone includes necessarily a concept of his being possessed of some supernatural authority and power.

And, verily, We did destroy the places of which you see ruins about you, and We showed them Our signs in diverse ways that they might turn (away from their wrong ways to Us). So why did not those whom they had made their ilahs, and presumed to have access to Us, help them in their hour of doom? Far from helping, they abandoned them and made themselves scarce, exposing the hollowness of their falsehoods and fabrications 5.
(46 : 27, 28) Surat Al Ahqa'af

And wherefore should I not give my worship to Him who created me and to Whom all of you will return? Should I take for myself ilah other then Allah Who, should He Who is also Ar-Rahman wish me any harm, will avail me naught by their intercession, nor will they be able to come to my rescue?
(36 : 22-23) Surat ya'aseen

And those who have taken others then Allah as protectors or helpers say, "We do not worship them except that they may bring us closer to Him." Allah will decide for them on the Day of Judgment regarding that in which they differ.
(39:3) Surat Al Zoumar

And they worship other than Allah those who have power neither to harm nor benefit them, and they say that they are their intercessors with Him.
(10 : 18) Surat younus

What we learn from these verses is, firstly, that it was not that the Arabs believed their ilahs to account for the whole of divinity among themselves or that there was no Supreme Being over and above them. They quite clearly believed in the existence of such a Being for whom they employed the special Proper name of '"Allah"." As for their ilahs, their belief consisted essentially of the concept that they enjoyed some share in the divinity of the Supreme God, that their word carried some weight with Him, and that their intercession could result in some gains or ward off some harm or loss. It was on these grounds that they regarded them as ilahs besides Allah and, considering their precept and practice, we may say that it was the belief about someone to have power to intercede with God, the act of addressing of prayers to him for help, the performing of certain devotions indicative of respect and reverence and adoration, and the making of offerings, that constituted in their terminology, the treating of Him as ilah.

And God said : "Do not make two ilahs ;there is but one ilah ; So, fear Me alone." (16:51) Surat Al Nahl

And (Ibrahim said to them): I fear not those you associate with God. Any harm can come to me only if He should will it, and not otherwise (through any or all of your supposed gods).
(6 : 81) Surat Al Ana'am

(And said Hud's people to him :) All we think of yon is that you are under the curse of someone or other of our ilahs.
(11:54) Surat Hud

According to these verses, the Arab belief about their ilahs was that if they should give them any cause for offence or should otherwise be deprived of their favors and attentions, they would suffer epidemics, famine, lose of life and property, or other calamities.

They made their religious scholars end rabbis their rabbs instead of Allah, and Jesus son of Mary too into one, although they had been told to worship but one ilah only, besides Whom there is no ilah at all.
(9 :31) Surat Al Tawba

Have you noticed the men who has made his selfish desires his ilah ? Can you assume any responsibility about such a one?
(25:43) Surat Al Forqa'an

And in this wise did the supposed gods of pagans make infanticide appear an approved act in their eyes.
(6 : 138) Surat Al Ana'am

What! Have they partners in godhood who have established for them some religion without sanction from Gods?
(42:21) Surat Al Shura'h

Here we have yet another concept of ilah very different from those dealt with above. Here there is no element of the supernatural. The ilah here is some human being, or man's own selfish ego or selfish desires. No prayers are offered to it, nor is it regarded as being in a position to will any harm or benefit to someone nor is it looked to for help or succor. It is an ilah in the sense that its dictates are accepted and obeyed to such extent that that which it declares to be permitted or prohibited is treated as such, and it is deemed to have an inherent right to make us do or not do certain things, with no higher or superior authority whose approval might be necessary for its orders or which might be appealed to against them.

The first verse we have quoted here (9:31) speaks of religious scholars and rabbis having been made into ilahs. We get a very lucid explanation of this in Hadith. Hazrat 'Adi bin Hatim once asked the Holy Prophet, on whom be peace, about the verse, and in reply the Prophet told him that whet was characterized as taking as ilahs was the practice of accepting as permitted or prohibited anything pronounced as such by the scholars or rabbis, without caring to ascertain what God had actually said about it.

As for the second verse, (25:43) the meaning is clear enough. He who obeys only the dictates of his selfish desires or inclinations or, rather regards his personal views as the only law, in effect makes his self his ila'h instead of God.

The last two verses use the word shuraka which we have translated as supposed gods or partners, in godhood, but although the word ilah has not been used, the implication clearly is that to treat any beings, etc., as shuraka amounts, in effect, to believing them to have a share in divinity. The import of these verses is that those who regard any custom or rule or practice as permissible although it has no divine sanction, are guilty of treating the originators of the custom, etc., as having a share in divinity, i. e., of treating them as ilahs.

The Criterion for Godhood

There is a clear logical inter-connection between all the different concepts of ilah set out above. Whosoever regards any other person or being to be his helper or patron in the supernatural sense, or capable of solving his problems or fulfilling his needs, of hearing and granting his prayers, or of doing him harm or good, does so only because he believes that Person or being to enjoy some measure of authority in the management of the universe. Similarly, if a person's avoidance of certain actions or performance of others is governed by the hope or fear that they would win him the pleasure or displeasure of some other person or being, he does so obviously because of belief that that person or being possesses some hind of supernatural authority in shaping the affairs of men. As for him who believes in God and yet turns to others for the fulfillment of his needs, he too can do so only because he believes them to have some share in God's authority. And, lastly, no different is the case of the person who accords the status of law to the commandments of someone other than God, and binds himself to obey the injunctions or prohibitions of that someone. for he in effect thereby accords him supreme authority. We can therefore safely conclude that the essence of godhood is authority, whether it is conceived as sovereignty of a supernatural kind over the whole universe, or on the basis that man is bound by God's law in his worldly life and that all of His injunctions are to be complied with because they emanate from Him."[source - http://www.islam101.com/tauheed/ilah.htm]>>>.

So, now let's look at how the "Allah," is constructed. The word "Allah" comes from the compound Arabic word, al-ilah. Al is the definite article "the" and ilah is an Arabic word for "god." It is not a foreign word. It is not even the Syriac word for God. It is pure Arabic, and as can be seen follows the general rule for Semitic languages that proper names are made up of words strung together. The proper noun or name may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up. This has clearly been shown with respect to 'Old middle eastern celestial Moon god's name, "Allah,"' and its relationship to the two words making it up.

Now let's look at what others say about the old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah."

[1] Dr. Arthur Jeffery, one of the foremost Western Islamic scholars in modern times and professor of Islamic and Middle East Studies at Columbia University, notes:

<<<"The name Allah, as the Quran itself is witness, was well known in pre-Islamic Arabia. Indeed, both it and its feminine form, Allat, are found not infrequently among the theophorous names in inscriptions from North Africa">>>.

[2] The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, states, <<<"The origin of this (Allah) goes back to pre-Muslim times. Allah is not a common name meaning "God" (or a "god"), and the Muslim must use another word or form if he wishes to indicate any other than his own peculiar deity">>>.

[3] The Encyclopedia of World Mythology and Legend, states,<<<"The name Allah goes back before Muhammad">>>.

[4] Hastings' Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics I:326, T & T Clark, states:
<<<"Allah" is a proper name, applicable only to their [Arabs'] peculiar God.">>>.

[5] And scholar George W. Braswell, Jr. states:
<<<"Pre-Islamic Arabia also had its stone deities. They were stone statues of shapeless volcanic or meteoric stones found in the deserts and believed to have been sent by astral deities. The most prominent deities were Hubal, the male god of the Ka'ba, and the three sister goddesses al-Lat, al-Manat, and al-Uzza; Muhammad's tribe, the Quraysh, thought these three goddesses to be the daughters of Allah. Hubal was the chief god of the Ka'ba among 360 other deities. He was a man-like statue whose body was made of red precious stone and whose arms were of solid gold." [source - George W. Braswell, Jr., Islam Its Prophets, Peoples, Politics and Power" (Broadman & Holman Publishers, Nashville, TN; July, 1996), p. 44]>>>.

[6] And by numerous scholars, a summary:
<<<"The old middle eastern Moon god who has gone by many names is still well venerated. This is shown by "The Archeology of The Middle East" which states, "The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah." The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was "Allah" the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre-Islamic times? The Muslim's claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if "Allah" is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre-Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most wide-spread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. As demonstrated by Sjoberg and Hall, the ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen and Asimbabbar. His symbol was the crescent moon. Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this Moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria. The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out, "Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites." [source - The Archeology of the Middle East]"[additional references - "South Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations" (Berta Segall, The Iconography of Cosmic Kingship, the Art Bulletin, vol.xxxviii, 1956, p.77).; Isaac Rabinowitz, Aramaic Inscriptions of the Fifth Century, JNES, XV, 1956, pp.1-9; Edward Linski, The Goddess Atirat in Ancient Arabia, in Babylon and in Ugarit: Her Relation to the Moon-god and the Sun-goddess, Orientalia Lovaniensia Periodica, 3:101-9; H.J.Drivers, Iconography and Character of the Arab Goddess Allat, found in Études Preliminaries Aux Religions Orientales Dans L'Empire Roman, ed.

[7] Answering-Islam says,
<<<Allah (allah, al-ilah, the god) was the principal, though not the only, deity of Makkah. The name is an ancient one. It occurs in two South Arabic inscriptions, one a Minean found at al-'Ula and the other Sabean, but abounds in the form HLH in the Lihyanite inscriptions of the fifth century B.C. Lihyan, which evidently got the god from Syria, was the first center of the worship of this deity in Arabia. The name occurs as Hallah in the Safa inscriptions five centuries before Islam and also in a pre-Islamic Christian Arabic inscription found in umm-al-Jimal, Syria, and ascribed to the sixth century. The name of Muhammad's father was 'Abd-Allah ('Abdullah, the slave or worshiper of Allah). The esteem in which Allah was held by the pre-Islamic Makkans as the creator and supreme provider and the one to be invoked in time of special peril may be inferred from such koranic passages as 31:24, 31; 6:137, 109; 10:23. Evidently he was the tribal deity of the Quraysh. (Ibid., pp. 100-101; underlined emphasis ours)

OTHER EXAMPLES OF FORMING OF PROPER NAMES IN SEMITIC LANGUAGES:

As previously stated and shown, in Semitic languages proper names are made up of words strung together. The proper noun or name may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up. This was clearly be shown with respect to 'Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah,"' and its relationship to the two words making it up, "Al" and "Ilah".

Now here is another example provided Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with respect to the name of a former Crown Prince,
<<<"Example, Crown Prince 'Abd al-Ilah (also written Abdul Ilah), (1913-1958), was the cousin of and brother-in-law of King Ghazi, and was regent of Iraq for King Faisal II from April 4, 1939 to May 2, 1953, when Faisal came of age. He also held the title of Crown Prince of Iraq from 1943.

A son of King Ali ibn Hussein of Hejaz, who was the elder brother of King Faisal I of Iraq, he assumed power upon the death of his brother in an automobile accident. He was deposed briefly by former prime minister Rashid Ali al-Kaylani, who led a pro-German coup during World War II but was restored after the United Kingdom invaded the country in May 1941.

'Abd al-Ilah stepped down in 1953, when Faisal came of age, but he continued to be a close adviser of the young king, and an advocate of a pro-Western foreign policy. He was killed, along with most of the royal family, on July 14, 1958, in a coup d'état led by Colonel Abdul Karim Qassim that brought an end to the Iraqi monarchy."[source - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]>>>.
Note, His name like that of old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah," contains the Arabic word for god, "Ilah". Just another example of proper names are made up of words strung together in Semitic languages. The proper noun or name may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up.

In fact some members of Islam even seek to deceive with respect to the meanings of Arabic proper names that are made up according to how proper names are made up of words strung together in Semitic languages by claiming the proper name has the meaning of the two or more words that make it up. Of course this is nothing but pure grammatical nonsense only meant to deceive when they are in a state of denial with respect to the truth. Let's look at one example by a member of Islam,
<<<" Mosque literally means a place of prostration. As such, it is not necessarily characteristic of a dome or a building. If the Quran had said that Muhammad(saw) visited the Temple(using the word "haykal"), an anachronism would appear. However, the pertinent verse says "masjid" which in this case means a ground whereon a worshipper prostrates.">>>
Whereas, knowing how Semitic languages construct proper names of things, places, and people from words in those languages making up the proper name this is sheer grammatical nonsense used only to deceive.

CONCLUSION:

The construction of proper names of things, places, and people in Semitic languages has clearly been shown to be by combining words in those languages to form the. The proper noun or name thus may or may not bear a relationship to the words that make it up. This was clearly be shown with respect to 'Old middle eastern celestial Moon god, "Allah,"' and its relationship to the two words making it up, "Al" and "Ilah", the name of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, that of a former Crown Prince, and that of the name of the building used by members of Islam to worship in, "Mosque," which is made up of two Arabic words, "haykal" and "masjid" per a member of Islam.

Also, as noted by scholar S.A.Ala Maududi, sometimes the original meaning of a word gets obscured,
<<<"But as centuries passed, the real meanings of these terms gradually under went subtle changes so that, in course of time, instead of the full connotations, they came to stand for only very limited meanings or restricted and rather vague concepts. One reason was the gradual decline of interest in the Arabic language and the other that the words ceased to have the same meanings for the later generations of Muslims that they had for the original Arabs to whom the Qur'an had been revealed. It is for these two reasons that in the more recent lexicons and commentaries many of the Qur'anic words began to be explained not by their original sense but by what they had by then come to stand for, e.g., The word ilah, as used in respect of others than God, came to be synonymous with idols or gods; The word rabb came to mean only someone who brings up or rears or feeds another or provides for his worldly needs; 'Ibadah began to be understood as the performance of a set of rituals of "worship"; Deen began to mean a religion, or belief in some precepts; and the word Thaghut began to be translated to mean an idol or the Devil." [source - The Meaning of ILAH, (taken from S.A.Ala Maududi's article : "Four Basic Terms"), http://www.witness-pioneer.org/vil/Articles/shariah/ilah.htm]>>>.

And as noted by Teri Riddering, on Jul 13, 2005 at 13:28,
<<<"I am very surprised (and aghast) at Daniel Pipes' candid comparison between "Allah" and the God of the Jewish & Christian Scriptures. Even semantically, there is no equivalence! The muslims would have the world believe that "Allah" is a generic term for the god of all humanity because, in that manner, they can more easily convert people to Islam.

I want to quote some paragraphs from David Hunt's section of Questions and Answers in "The Berean Call" of April 2003. As he clearly states, the generic term in Arabic for God is NOT "Allah", but "ilha", which is also used throughout the Koran. Example: "There is no 'ilah' save him... Allah is the only one 'ilah'." (2:255; 4:171, etc.)

Allah is a contraction of "Al-ilah", meaning the chief or greatest god. Allah was the chief god in the Ka'aba, a pagan temple that held more than 300 idols. Allah was the Moon god who, by his spouse the sun goddess, had 3 daughters: Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat. The presence of the crecent moon marking Islam is evidence of that long-established paganism. Muhammad carried the rituals associated with the Ka'aba and Ramadan over to Islam almost exactly as pagan Arabs practiced them for centuries.

But the true and honest Muslims have to admit that theologically, Allah is not the Christian God. In the Koran it says: "Far is it removed from his transcendent majesty that he should have a son" (Sur 4:171). For that reason, it is blasphemous for a Muslim to say that the Christian God is the same as Allah, because they would never say that Jesus is "Allah's Son"!

On the other hand, it is also a huge mistake to say that Allah is the same as the Jewish/Hebrew God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because of the vast difference in their instrinsic qualities. Their "personal traits" are totally opposite, as well as their ultimate goals.The Biblical God's motivation for doing things is always love, so as to bless His people and the nations of the world, while the motivation of the Koran's god is always domination and subjugation of his people and all the nations of the world using any avaliable means, including treachery, deceit, maiming and death.

On the other hand, the Hebrew God clearly states that He has chosen the descendants of Jacob to be His people, and not the descendants of Ishmael, whose nation of people is called by God in Genesis 16:12 as a "wild man" (lit. mountain donkey). Try asking some Muslim if Allah says that about the descendants of Ishmael!

No, even though there may be some similarities between the Koranic/Muslim god and the Biblical God, whether Jewish or Christian, (as stated by their respective followers), the difference far outweigh the similarities, thus belying any attempt to make them equal![source - Teri Riddering, http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/23458 ]>>>.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] LOVE, THE CHIEF ATTRIBUTE OF GOD (YHWH):

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 536A]

And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. Genesis 8:21, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) is not satisfied with animal sacrifices, but wants the genuine love and obedience from the created. This is clearly stated at Hebrews 13:16, [AV] “But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” But most men were not obedient to their creator as shown at Genesis 6:6, [AV], “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” Yes, God searches for genuine followers with the right heart condition as testified to at Genesis 31:7, [AV] “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.” Why? Because as the Apostle Matthew wrote under inspiration at Matthew 15:19, [AV] “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!



[2] LOVE, THE CHIEF ATTRIBUTE OF GOD (YHWH):

INTRODUCTION:

The true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, chief attribute is Love as testified to at 1 John 4:8-11, "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." (Authorized King James Bible; AV); and 1 John 4:16-19, "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us." (AV).

MANIFESTATION OF LOVE SHOWN BY GIVING HIS SON SO MEN MIGHT LIVE:

But let's look a little more at the subject of love.

John 3:16, says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (AV); and 1 John 4:9-10, "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (AV).

REQUIREMENT TO DEMONSTRATE GENUINE LOVE:

But you can not come to know the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, to gain his love as brought out in 1 John 4:7-8, "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." (AV) .

Love for the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, and his only begotten Son, Jesus (Yeshua) is shown by obedience per 1 John 2:5 and 1 John 5:3, "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." (AV) and "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous." (AV); and 2 John 1:6, "And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it." (AV); and John 14:15-21, "f ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 ¶ I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him." (AV)

LOVE IS THE MARK OF TRUE CHRISTIANS:

True Christians are marked by outstanding love for one another as shown at John 13:34-35, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." (AV); and John 15:12-13, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (AV); and 1 John 3:10, "In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother." (AV).

This is in sharp contrast with other religions such as Islam where in just one Muslim country members of different flavors of Islam killed over 34,000 of their brother Muslims in just 2006 alone. No love there.

Strong bonds of love should unite families, and it does among genuine (true) Christians in keeping with Ephesians 5:25, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;" (AV): and Titus 2:4, "That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children," (AV).

Godlike love motivated by principle and the seeking of the lasting welfare of the ones loved per Proverbs 13:24, "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." (AV); and Revelation 3:19, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." (AV); and Hebrews 12:6, "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth." (AV).

GODLIKE LOVE MOTIVATED BY PRINCIPLE:

Love is not to be limited to those who love us per Matthew 5:43-47, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?" (AV); and Luke 6:27-33, "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.[[Refers to insults.]] 30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same." (AV).

And we should be guided by accurate knowledge of the inspired word of the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, creator of all there is, the Bible, per Philippians 1:9-11, "And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God." (AV).

CONCLUSION:

Many say they have love for their fellow man, but their actions clearly show otherwise since they are not acting in accordance with 2 Corinthians 8:24, "Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf." (AV). Clearly most do not comply with 1 Corinthians 13:4-5, "Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;" (AV); and Ephesians 4:1-2, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 ¶ With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;" (AV).

Remember Proverbs 10:12, "Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins." (AV); and Galatians 5:13, "For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another." (AV); and 1 John 3:17-18, "But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth." (AV).

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] CAN A RELIGION BECOME A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND NEED TO BE DISSOLVED?

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 537A]

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:8 – 10 [authorized King James Bible; AV]

It is most important to have love for your neighbor, and to treat him as you would want to be treated. This righteous principle is highlighted at Matthew 7:12, [AV], “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” However, members of false religions do JUST THE OPPOSITE. Take for example, the false religious cult of Islam, it has been very violent against others and shows them no love. This was clearly highlighted in the South Florida Weekender on August 21, 2015, in Volume 7, Number 34, on page 7, as follows, “The cult followers of Muhammad have killed 270 million people in 1,400 years. That’s 528 people per ad and 22 people an hour (approx.) The causalities of Islam are nine times more than of Stalin and Hitler COMBINED.” No love of neighbor shown here. And the The Weekend Australian, November 26-27, 2005 said, “The lust for violence that many members of Islam have that is responsible for 90 to 95% of the violence in the world today.” In fact this cult is so rabid racist that some of their apologist even said, “There is no place for a none Muslim in a state supported Muslim school.” Galatians 6:9 – 10, [AV], “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” Which is the EXACT opposite practiced by Islam.

[2] CAN A RELIGION BECOME A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND NEED TO BE DISSOLVED?

THE PRESENT IN LONDON, TERRORISM AT THE LONDON BRIDGE, BOROUGH MARKET, AND VAUXHALL, PLUS THE RECENT ATTACH IN MANCHESTER BRING UP THE QUESTION OF WHERE DOES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM END AND A SO CALLED RELIGIOUS GROUP BECOMES SAVAGE TERRORIST. NOW THIS IN NO WAY MEANS ALL MEMBERS OF ISLAM IN THE UNITED KINGDOM ARE SAVAGES AS MANY ARE GOOD PEOPLE DUPED BY A NON-PEACEFUL FALSE RELIGION WHICH IS UNFORTUNATE. HOWEVER, IT BRINGS UP A SERIOUS QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE FACED; TO WIT, AT WHAT POINT IS IT PRUDENT TO CHANGE THE STATUS OF A RELIGIOUS GROUP TO SAVAGE TERRORIST FROUP. THIS IS OF COURSE NOT AN EASY QUESTION, BUT RECENT EVENTS, 7/7/2005 BOMBING OF THE TUBE CARRIAGES AND BUSSES, THE DEPARTURE OF MANY MEMBERS OF THIS RELIGION TO THE MIDDLE EAST WITH THE INTENT OF COMMITTING SAVAGE CARNAGE OR BECOMING APPOINTED BE HEADERS SUCH AS THE ONE FROM LONDON WHO BEHEADED MY FRIEND JAMES FOLEY. OF COURSE, ALL OF THESE ONES SHOULD BE TRIED UPON THE RETURN TO THE UNITED KINGDOM FOR BEING ACCESSORIES TO MURDER AND/OR MURDER.

NOW THERE ARE TWO IMPORTANT ITEMS TO BE CONSIDERED AS FOLLOWS:

FIRST, HAVE THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS DONE ANYTHING TO REMOVE THE SAVAGE EVIL ONES FROM AMONG THEM? LET’S LOOK AT THIS IN DETAIL.

Guilt Comes On Organizations That Fail To Clean House Of The Wicked Ones:

INTRODUCTION:

First, The world we live in is ruled by the wicked one as testified to by 1 John 5:19, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (Authorized King James Bible; AV). If we pick up a newspaper in any country, we find reports of cruelty and violence on an unprecedented scale. Man’s inhumanity to man is troubling for a righteous person to contemplate as testified to at Ecclesiastes 8:9, “All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.” (AV).

Second, Most individuals and/or groups seek to avoid responsibility for their own actions rather than take corrective actions. This also applies to so called religious groups that seek to absolve themselves of responsibility for the wrong actions of members, but fail, willingly, to take action against these wrong doers by purging themselves of these wicked ones.

THE REALITY:

If a religion fails to clean house of evil and wicked men when they are discovered, and especially of evil and wicked men/women taking the lead in a congregation, and/or congregations such as Pastors, Ministers, Sheiks, Imams, Bishops, Cardinals, Etc., THEN THE RELIGION IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR WRONG DOING. Some religions such as Islam have never cleaned house of evil and wicked individuals when they are discovered and that religion has been violent since its beginning, and many of its members lust for violence in such acts as beheading of others, suscide bombers, makers of IEDs, etc. do to the teachings of their groups religious leaders. One notable example of an evil and wicked individual Islam well knows of who is a leader of a large group of members of Islam is Sheik Osama bin Ladin. Of course, Islam, is NOT the only religion that fails to take effective action against evil and wicked individuals and leaders of groups among them, another is the Catholic and Angalican churches that for many years just moved pedophiles to a new congregation when they were uncovered as the world's news media has so well identified. Groups seeking to keep themselves clean of evil and wicked individuals that sneak into their group take the appropriate action; to wit, they throw them out.

Now many religions seek to escape reality by claiming they have no provisions within their religion for purging out these wicked ones, but this is no excuse since it is their failure to provide measures for purging out these wicked ones and no one else’s.

Now let’s look at one such religion that tries to escape their responsibility for cleaning house so to speak.

ISLAM FAILS TO CLEAN HOUSE:

Now of course it is important to recognize that not all Muslims are terrorist and jihadists nor refuse to recognize the property rights of others, it is likewise equally important to recognize that all jihadists are members of Islam. Islam is totally responsible for their actions as they tacitly approve of their evil wrong doing and have never cleaned house of these wicked ones. To wit, by not doing so, they have taken on the responsibility for their wrongful actions upon themselves. Yes, of course they are not the only religion that has failed to clean house; thus taking on the guilt of these wrong doers. Any religion, no exception, which fails to clean house is nothing but an evil false religion. And as previously stated, ‘Now many religions seek to escape reality by claiming they have no provisions within their religion for purging out these wicked ones, but this is no excuse since it is their failure to provide measures for purging out these wicked ones and no one else’s.’

CONCLUSION:

Many are just fooling themself, it is not what either the Bible or the Bible knockoff the Qur'an actually say, but how religious leaders be they priest and/or imams or muftis or what ever teach the people is the interpretation of what is written either in the Bible or the bible knockoff the Qur'an that matters and governs actions. It matters not what the Bible and/or the Bible knockoff really say. People go by what they are taught by their religious leaders. Take the genocide committed by the Roman Catholic Church at the direction of their supreme religious leader, the pope (Pope Innocent III (1160 or 1161 – 16 July 1216)), what mattered was not that the Bible clearly said at Exodus 20:13, "Thou shalt not kill." (Authorized King James Bible; AV), but what their religious leaders told them. Therefore, it is the religion which is at fault, ir-regardless of what their particular holy book, be it the Bible or the Bible knockoff the Qur'an may say. Neither in so called Christianity or in Islam are most individuals actions really governed in any way by what their particular holy book really says, but they are governed by the interpretation of their religious leaders. Thus, knowing this reality, one would be either just plain stupid and/or dumb to even bother looking at a particular religion's holy book and expect the members would conform to it. Take the Rig Vede and find me for example a Hindu actually conforming to it instead of the interpretation given to it by his religious leaders, like looking for a needle in the haystack per K.S. Lal, India's greatest historian.

Likewise the failure to clean house of evil ones puts their wrongs directly upon the organization failing to throw out evil/wicked ones when they are found out.

SECOND, CONSIDER WHAT WAS DISCOVERED IN A POLICE RAID IN THE USA RECENTLY WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE LEADERS OF ISLAM’S INTENT IN THAT COUNTRY, AND I BELIEVE ALSO IN THE UNITED KINGDOM:

MANY MUSLIMS WANT TO TAKE OVER AND ARE ANYTHING BUT PEACEFUL PER THE FOLLOWING NEWS ARTICLE TAKEN FROM THE WEB.

Feds Just Raided Muslims’ House In Virginia – Walked In On Final Step Of America’s Worst Nightmare

| The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic 30-year plan for taking over America from within was a closely-guarded secret until THE FBI RAIDED A HOUSE IN ANNANDALE, VIRGINIA, where agents found a disturbing bundle of documents containing a blueprint for the Muslim takeover of our country. Now that the cat is out of the bag, we must do everything in our power to expose what’s going on, as startlingly, these American-hating vermin are in the final phase of their 5-step plan to destroy our country.
Twenty-seven years ago, Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradwai traveled to America to organize Muslims across America, educating them with his diabolical plan for the compete Muslim takeover of America that would take 30 years to complete. It included a key tactic known as “Muruna,” where Muslims are able to violate Sharia Law in order to convince Americans that they are just like us. Just like an Ebola virus, Muruna is extremely effective, as Muslims are now able to seamlessly integrate into every facet of our society, as they make their way into our public school systems, our federal and law enforcement agencies, and key positions within our government.

But due to the raid, their game is up. Now that their highly-guarded secrets are out, we as Americans must stand up and expose what’s going on, while doing everything in our power to stop their rapidly approaching plans from coming to fruition.

While the Muslim Brotherhood in America would love for everyone to believe they’re just a peace-loving group of Islamists, nothing could be further from the truth. Their recently-discovered plans for America is highly chilling, where documents reveal what’s called a “civilization-jihadist” process, where American Muslims are actively destroying western civilization from within, as they seek to make Islam recognized in our courts and schools, bullying their way with political correctness which has proven to be a highly-effective tool. Here’s their 5-phase plan, and disturbingly, they are now in the final phase of their mission:
“Phase One: Phase of discreet and secret establishment of leadership.
“Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities (It greatly succeeded in implementing this stage). It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government. Gaining religious institutions and embracing senior scholars. Gaining public support and sympathy. Establishing a shadow government (secret) within the Government.

“Phase Three: Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.

“Phase Four: Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.

“Phase Five: Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.”

While that is their general overall plan, the document that was seized in the raid reveals a chilling insight into their operations, mindset, planning, and vision of the Islamic movement rapidly taking over North America. Via Shariathreat.org:

• Expanding the Muslim presence by birth rate, immigration, and refusal to assimilate;
• Occupying and expanding domination of physical spaces;
• Ensuring the “Muslim Community” knows and follows MB doctrine;
• Controlling the language we use in describing the enemy;
• Ensuring we do not study their doctrine (shariah);
• Co-opting key leadership;
• Forcing compliance with shariah at local levels;
• Fighting all counterterrorism efforts;
• Subverting religious organizations;
• Employing lawfare – the offensive use of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits;
• Claiming victimization / demanding accommodations;
• Condemning “slander” against Islam;
• Subverting the U.S. education system, in particular, infiltrating and dominating U.S. Middle East studies programs;
• Demanding the right to practice shariah in segregated Muslim enclaves;
• Demanding recognition of shariah in non-Muslim spheres;
• Confronting and denouncing Western society, laws, and traditions; and
• Demanding that shariah replace Western law. Note that many of the foregoing techniques entail, in one way or another, influencing and neutralizing the American government at all levels.

What’s alarming is that not only are these terrorists close to reaching their goals for the complete takeover of our country, but liberal politicians across America are drastically speeding up the process. President Trump as we know has been trying to implement a ban to keep terrorists from infiltrating our country under the guise of being “refugees,” but we still have these mindless morons advocating to bring these vermin in, as they’re now joining forces with Muslims in America in anticipation of “zero hour,” where their sleeper cells will be activated and the complete annihilation of our country will ensue.

CONCLUSION:

REALITY IS AS FOLLOWS,

NUMBER OF JEWISH TERRORIST IN LAST 17 YEARS = NONE
NUMBER OF CHRISTIAN TERRORIST IN LAST 17 YEARS= NONE
NUMBER OF MUSLIM TERRORIST IN LAST 17 YEARS= IN EXCESS OF 26,000.

ISLAM IN THE WESTERN WORLD SHOULD BE GIVEN AN IMMEDIATE ULTIMATUM TO CLEAN UP THEIR ORGANIZATION IN THE WESTERN WORLD OR HAVE IT DISSOLVED AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. THERE ARE MANY OTHER RELIGIONS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ELSEWHERE IN THE WESTERN WORLD THAT GOOD PEOPLE NOW IN THIS RELIGION COULD TURN TO. TO WIT, IN THE UNITED KINGDOM THERE ARE OVER 200 SO CALLED CHRISTIAN RELIGIONS, 6 DIFFERENT JEWISH RELIGIONS, HINDUS, SIKHS, JEANS, ZOROASTRIANS, BUDDHIST, AND OTHERS AVAILABLE TO THEM.

NOTE: LET'S FACE IT, SOME IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE JUST SAVAGES, AND SHOULD BE SENT BACK TO WHERE THEIR FAMILIES CAME FROM IF THEY CAN NOT LIVE LIKE CIVILIZED INDIVIDUALS. MANY MUSLIMS ARE OF THIS ILK. INSTEAD OF SHOWING GRATITUDE TO THE HOST COUNTRY, THEY WANT TO VIOLENCE, MURDER AND TO RAPE HOST COUNTRY NATIVES. TO WIT, MANY LEFT THEIR OWN COUNTRY BECAUSE LIFE WAS UNBEARABLE THERE, BUT INSTEAD OF STRIVING FOR A BETTER LIFE IN THE HOST COUNTRY, THEY SEEK TO MAKE THE HOST COUNTRY LIKE THEIR HOME COUNTRY THEY LEFT BECAUSE THEY COULD NO LONGER BEAR LIVING THERE. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY SEEK TO IMPOSE SHARI LAW IN THE HOST COUNTRY AND CLAIM THEY NEED IT TO PROPERLY DISPOSE OF THEIR PROPERTY. THIS IS OF COURSE A BIG LIE AS ANY COMPETENT PARA-LEGAL CAN FASHION A WILL TO DISPOSE OF PROPERTY IN ANY LEGAL WAY INCLUDING PROPERTY LEFT TO NON-HUMANS SUCH AS DOGS. IN THE UNITED KINGDOM IN EAST LONDON THEY ARE OFTEN SEEN PROTESTING WITH SIGNS READING ‘FREEDOM NO, SHARI LAW YES’ WHICH IS NOTHING SHORT OF TREASON IN MY OPINION. IN ADDITION, THEY WANT STATE SUPPORTED RACIST SCHOOLS SO THEY CAN PERPETUATE THE EVILS OF THE COUNTRIES THEY CAME FROM. NO COUNTRY NEEDS IMMIGRANTS OF THIS TYPE.

TOKYO IS THE LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD, BUT HAS NOT EXPERIENCED ANY OF THIS TYPE OF TERRORIST ACTIVITY SIMPLY AS THEY DID NOT PERMIT IMMIGRANTS FROM PREDOMINATELY MUSLIM COUNTRIES CLEARLY SHOWING THE SOURCE OF THIS VIOLENCE IS IN THE UNCIVILIZED BELIEFS OF SOME IN THOSE COUNTRIES, DEFINITELY NOT ALL. EXTREME VETTING MIGHT CATCH THESE UNCIVILIZED ONES, BUT IN THE USA WHERE THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO IMPLEMENT A SMALL SCALE RUN OF THIS, HE EXPERIENCED EXTREME OPPOSITION FROM THE OTHER POLITICAL PARTY.

NOTE – YOUR COMMENTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED!

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BIBLE AND RELIGION – BOTH TRUE AND FALSE – AT WWW.JW.ORG AND HOW FALSE RELIGION IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE VIOLENCE ON EARTH.
