(Philosophy Poem) Fear, Anger, And Life

FEAR, ANGER, AND LIFE

 

My heart my heart, how faint are thee

Throbbing, pulsing, connecting my life to Soul

Will you desert me now in this moment of many tears

Do I bow down now for my first time to a local Societies Deity

We all need be sure to Whom it is whose heart we so wish to please

Heart given to Light our Soul freed like an Eagle on a mountain breeze

 

We were all born Alpha in your own life, our’s to give or to keep

To Whom do we bow our head and Soul, to whose Throne is worthy to be

The most precious Jewels of our life, have we ever given so another could live

O Spiritual Soul why would you cower here to another, who is it that you host

Use your Spine, you are not a sterile seed, but a Vine in the lineage of future History

Stare in your mirror, deep eye to eye, your Soul is looking too, can you see, that is you

 

Life is filled with beauty though clouds sometimes do skew our Spiritual view

Humans must hold dear to love, let it overflow heartaches, melting our fears

As we all spin with the Sun, anger sometimes inevitable in the human cycle of life

Dust to dust, too late, if fear or anger ruled our day, and the dreams of our nights

O Heart, O Soul, while air of blue sky from the thought’s of God you still breathe

When a Heart is given in Love, fear only your losing the giver of the heart their of

 

Soul are you one whose Heart’s Beam gives the World no light of which to see

Fear only the darkness of He who stealthily can steal your Soul’s light and love

Andes gives Light to knowledge, Aramaic buried one through nine long ago

Could Ten be The End, when two come down to die by The Weeping Wall, then live

Many of us walk through this life bathed in Light, yet with our eyes tightly closed

Don’t be a coward, angry at any and all, diluted to the beauty of God’s gifts within

 

Common Myths Concerning Islam

Common Myths Concerning Islam

A Muslim professor discusses “moderate Muslims.”

His definition of this term should be read very carefully. Also notice that he includes the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe, Tariq Ramadan, as one of this group.

China has its problems with jihad. And then there were the bus bombings.

A Muslim doctor on how to take over an American hospital and make it a Muslim one.

Debating About Islam

Once you know something about Islam and try to talk to others, you may find yourself in a debate. Here are some of the “standards”.

CAN YOU READ ARABIC?
Everyone from Muslims to atheists uses this. The implication is that Arabic is a unique language that can’t be translated and therefore, how could you know what you are talking about? First, the Koran claims to be a universal message for all humanity for all times. If the message is universal, then it must be able to be understood by all. If the message cannot be understood by everybody, then by definition it is not universal. So, which is it?

Another thing to consider is that over half of the Koran is about Kafirs and politics. Do you really think that a political message about a Kafir cannot be understood by the Kafir? If so, what is that message that cannot be understood?

It must be made clear which Arabic is being spoken about. The Arabic of the Koran is classical Arabic which is about as similar to modern Arabic as the English of Chaucer and Beowulf is similar to modern English. Said in another way, not even a modern Arab can read classical Arabic. It is estimated that fewer than a thousand scholars who read classical Arabic can compose a paragraph on a random topic.

And what about the nearly billion Muslims who don’t even understand modern Arabic? If it is necessary to understand classical Arabic to understand what the Koran is about, then how can those billion non-Arabic-speaking Muslims understand the Koran? And if they cannot understand the Koran how can they be Muslims?

Ask the person who presents the argument if they have any opinions about the doctrine of Christianity. Then ask them if they read Hebrew, Aramaic or Biblical Greek? If they do not read those languages how can they form an opinion about something they have to read in translation? Of course they can read it and form an opinion, the same way we can read and understand the Koran.

A secondary question is why would anyone want to believe that the Koran couldn’t be understood? What is the purpose of believing that out of all the books in the world, why would there be one that cannot be translated?

The Koran is only 18% of the total doctrine. Would the questioner believe that the other 82% of the doctrine not be understood as well?

WELL, THE CHRISTIANS DID...
This response usually comes after some grim facts are given about Islam. This is probably the most common response from non-Christians. The best response is to ask if they have a reason that they don’t want to talk about Islam, since they want to change the subject. The average person knows next to nothing about Islam and sometimes this gambit is merely a way to steer the conversation into a familiar ground.

They are just trying to prove that Islam is not any worse than Christianity. At this point, welcome the chance to compare the two. Choose the ground of comparison. The best place to start is the founders. Compare Mohammed to Christ. The other good comparison is in ethics. Compare Islam’s dualistic ethics to unitary Golden Rule ethics.

Another version of this is that the person will compare some failed Christian to a “good” Muslim they know at work. It is fairly useless to do personal comparisons. How do you choose which Muslim out of 1.5 billion Muslims and which Christian do you choose out of a couple billion Christians?

A variation on the “Well, the Christians did …” is “What about the Crusades”? This is the time to say you welcome a comparison of the Crusades to jihad. Start with the question of why the Crusades were needed. Islāmic jihad caused the invasion of the Middle East. The Crusades were a response to a cry for help by the tortured and oppressed Christians in their native land. Did the Christians do some very wrong things? Yes, but notice that the Crusades have been over nearly a thousand years. Jihad is active today. And while we are at it, why do academic libraries have many books on the Crusades, which lasted only 200 years, and so few on jihad, which has lasted 1400 years? The West has analyzed the Crusades forever and has never analyzed jihad.

I KNOW THIS MUSLIM AND HE SAYS…
Why is the Muslim your friend knows the only Muslim out of 1.5 billion that makes him the expert on Islam? Remember, the average Muslim knows very little about the doctrine of Islam. Why? Because, historically the imams have acted as the high priests of Islam and they have never made the doctrine simple to understand. That is one way they keep their prestige and power.

But once you know something about the doctrine, you can say that you know also know a Muslim, and his name is Mohammed, and what you say comes from the Sunna. In short, your Muslim, Mohammed, can beat your friend’s Muslim on any issue of doctrine. If the Muslim your friend knows says something about Islam that agrees with Mohammed, then it is right. If what he says contradicts Mohammed, then he is wrong. So this Muslim your friend knows is either wrong or redundant, but never more right than Mohammed.

I KNOW THIS MUSLIM AND HE IS A NICE MAN
Probably so. What does that prove about Islam? He may follow the Golden Rule and not Islam. That is, he may be a poor Muslim and a good person.

Now is the time to explain about the Islam of Mecca and the Islam of Medina and which one is the more powerful. It is also time to explain about dualism and how Islam always has two faces.

Stay with doctrine and history of Islam, never get personal and talk about an individual Muslim. Actually, there is one way to talk about any Muslim, show how what they do and say follows the doctrine.

Besides, you know this Muslim and his name is Mohammed. Don’t talk about “Muslims,” talk about Mohammed.

THAT IS NOT THE REAL ISLAM
If you are quoting the Koran or the Sunna, then it is the real Islam, by definition. The Koran and the Sunna are Islam, the real Islam. All other Islam, such as is found in the media, is the false Islam. There is only one real Islam, the doctrine of Islam.

THEY DON’T REALLY BELIEVE THAT
This comes after you have revealed some horrific part of the doctrine. What do Muslims call themselves? The believers. What do they believe? The Koran and the Sunna. They say that is what they believe. Really believe.

I KNOW THIS MUSLIM AND HE IS NOT VIOLENT
This is a restating of, “I know this Muslim and he is good man.” He may be a poor Muslim and a good man who follows the Golden Rule.

But, the statement shows that there is no understanding of the duality of Islam. The Koran has both violence and tolerance against the Kafirs. Today in America the power of Islam is just getting started, so Islam is still weak. When Mohammed was weak in Mecca, he did not kill anybody. Islam is still in the first phase of jihad here.

But the Koran says that one Muslim can beat two Kafirs. It also says that Islam must be the dominant political system. So when Muslims reach a third of the population (that makes it 2 to 1), they will be in the full stage of Medina and violence becomes a standard operation. But even then, we know from the Sira, that many Muslims just don’t have the stomach for the violence. The Sira shows that Muslims can support jihad many ways, besides personal violence. The “peaceful” Muslim you know is commanded to give money to Islāmic charities and the charities give the money to the actual fighters.

WHAT ABOUT THE VIOLENCE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT?
Look at the violence in the Old Testament. It has two qualities—local and temporary. None of the violence is commanded to be global and eternal. In each case the violence is directed in a political struggle and when it was over it was over.

The violence in the Trilogy is for all Muslims, in all places and for all time. Jihad is to stop only when every kaffir submits. Look at Mohammed, the perfect example. He was involved with violence until the day he died. And on his deathbed he directed eternal violence against the Kafirs when he said in his last breath: “Let there be neither Christian or Jew left in Arabia.”

IF ISLAM IS SO VIOLENT, HOW CAN IT BE SO SUCCESSFUL?
The Sira records that when Islam committed violence, it attracted new followers. As Osama bin Laden says: “People like a winning horse.” After 9/11 in the US, new followers joined Islam. Communism was a political system that preached, promised and delivered violence and it attracted many people. Many people love violence. Have you never paid any attention to Hollywood? Violence is piled upon violence and people line up to see it.

Islam is growing rapidly. but most of the growth can be attributed to high birth rates, not conversion. Islam’s growth in Kafir countries is due to immigration, not conversion.

The Great Prophetic Story Book That Is The Old Testament Book Of Daniel

 

Daniel, a Prophet of God whose name means ‘God is my judge’. This Old Testament book is really quite an enjoyable read. The book is only 12 chapters long and contains several well know stories as ‘Daniel in the lion’s den’ and his three friends who were thrown into the furnace of fire that was so hot that some of the men who took them to the furnace died because of the heat. Three friends who would not bow to a fake God were to be burnt alive because of it. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, three men thrown into the fire because of their beliefs. Three men thrown in yet the King witnessed four men walking around within the fire. The King calls them out, three men come out of the fire with out a burn or even singed clothing. I believe that evening the slaves and the soldiers who witnessed this event had a story to tell to their wives and children, not exactly the normal day at the fire pit/office.

If you would this would be a wonderful book to read to your children during a family hour at home or during a set time you and your family set aside for the Lord each evening. I believe that the story of Daniel in the lion’s den is one of the first if not the first Bible story I remember hearing as a small child. It has been my experience that the stories within this book have always been well received by most everyone young or old who were hearing it for the first time. If you do not know these stories personally, please take the time to explore them with your family, I honestly believe that almost all of you will enjoy it. I am on purpose leaving the lions den story vague hoping that you will take the time to explore it for yourself.

 

Daniels life and his ministry covered a time that the people of Israel were in bondage in the nation of Babylon where they were taken and lived for seventy years. Daniel was deported with the other Israelite’s who had not been killed during the battle, he was 16 years old at the time. Daniel was hand-picked along with his three fore mentioned friends for government service. They were educated in Babylon’s best schools for three years and given new names, Daniel was given the name Belteshazzar  after a Babylonian God and the name meant ‘Bel protect his life.’

 

Daniel was blessed by the Spirit of God with great wisdom and interpretive skills which through time brought him into a position of prominence with the King, especially with Kings Nebuchadnezzar and King Darius. Daniel was mentioned three times by the sixth century BC Prophet Ezekiel as a man  who was ‘greatly loved’ and as a man who was an ‘example of righteousness.’ Jesus Himself also attributed a quote to Daniel the Prophet in Matthew 24:15.

 

The Book of Daniel is also widely known as a book of Prophesies and in the eleventh chapter alone there are over 100 prophecies of historical events that have come true.  The Book of Daniel just like the Book of Isaiah give the world a very detailed and quite through view of world events through the end of this world as we all know it. In his book Daniel wrote the first chapter in his native tongue of Hebrew. Chapters two through seven were written in the Aramaic language in which he chartered the future course of the future Gentile world powers.  The last five chapters (8-12) Daniel reverted back to Hebrew to show the Jewish nation of Israel under Gentile domination. The events written show the sovereign control that God has over the affairs of world history. These writings would be a lot of comfort to both the current captives of Babylon as well as many years later to the Church that Jesus would set up here upon the Earth. The truth is laid out that there will be kingdoms like the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, English and Germans but that they will all come to ruin. Yet the fact remains that God will establish His Kingdom where Israel and God’s redeemed will stand forever. Please consider Chapter 2 verse 44, “And in he days of these Kings shall the God of Heaven set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed: And the Kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these Kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”

 

The Book of Daniel  is a beautifully written piece of art that you and your whole family can enjoy together. Daniel is one of only a very few Biblical people where nothing negative is written about them anywhere in the Scriptures. Daniel was truly one of God’s most loved and trusted servants. Daniel set himself aside from the world around him that was full of sin and violence. He chose to be a man of God through his actions of love faith and obedience to the teachings of his Creator. Daniel chose to be a pillar of faith and Godly works even though he lived in a world where he and his people were captives and slaves. Friends, O how I wish that these traits could be said about the human race today. I wish these were traits of all of our families, the Churches we attend, about our own selves! I hope you have enjoyed this little piece about one of God’s most faithful servants. I pray that the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob (Israel) will ride with you in all of your journeys. Friends, until we meet again, Shalom.
