There is one judge and that is Jesus, Gods Son, who is coming to judge the living and the dead!

[@889684,Carazaa] You really need to begin ending sentences like that with "...according to the Bible."

No matter how often you repeat that rubbish, it remains rubbish.

Doesn’t quite reconcile with writings on “infidels”
Where is this written?

[@733785,SomeMichGuy] Jesus doesn't utter a word about same sex love or the definition of marriage, but we seem to find that in the Bible. We justify the existence of dinosaurs based on the creation story. Tenets of centuries old faiths revolve around occurrences found in the OT.

I don't follow the Bible per se, so I have no dog in the fight. Just talking.
[@627992,Graylight] I am familiar with the entire Bible, but people often say "the Bible" when they mean "Scripture proper", and often when they are referring to something un-Christian.

Yeah, there is a lot there, yeah, there are justifications for some things, but PLEASE, tell me which specific faiths you mean and which tenets...?

Of COURSE Judaism rests on the books on what has been brought into modern Bibles as the "Old Testament", and the New Testament has a non-trivial relationship to that, so we have Judaism and Christianity (thus, "Judæo-Christian"/"Judeo-Christian").

If you are also tying in Christianity++ as in the Utah connection & B'hai, say so, but don't confuse Islam as having other than a glancing regard for the Bible (Khadija's husband travelled to take care of her business, and obviously came into contact with Jews in the course of his dealings, etc., and that's likely when he decided to rewrite the story of Isaac to make the son Abram's/Abraham's first son, Ishmael).

The sex stuff is mostly in the OT, but Jesus--in a doubtful passage not in the most ancient authorities, in John 7:53 - 8:11--is at the intended stoning of the "loose woman"/"woman caught in adultery" where He says, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." After the crowd melts away, He asks the woman if no one is left, she says no, & He says that He, also, will not condemn her, but He doesn't give her a thumbs-up & say, "keep up the good work"; He says "Go your way, and from now on do not sin again." (NRSV for the textual info & last quote).

Sadly, a lot of Christians obsess about seeing the OT through their own eyes, not through Jesus' eyes.

I so much agree with you and believe this movement is the start of the One World Religion as seen in Revelations. Pope Francis and the NWO have been pushing CHRISLAM. I do not believe in this and see it as heretical and demonic. Without a doubt, we are living in end times.

{@lost4life ] 😆 all you can say to this god is going to get an ear bashing to remember from mohammed
[@3749,smiler2012] Yeah, God doesn't care about Khadija's husband's tongue-wagging.

Not everyone have guts so say truth as France teacher murder is example already...
You are brave to post on such sensitive topic .

Oh dear you're pushing the takkya prophganda muslims push to fool unbelievers..

Nope the quran and the accepted hadiths are not as this propoganda says..

quran 48:
29 Muhammad is the messenger of allah, and those who are with him are SERVERE against unbelievers, and mercifull amoungst themselves..

quran 9:
29 Fight those who believe not in allah, nor hold that forbbiden that has been forbidden by allah nor aknowledge the religion of truth, from among the people of the book, untill they pay the jizyah with willing submission and feel themselves subdued..

Quran 9:
123 Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you.
[@1086573,Adstar] Correct.

It's the first time I have seen this but it does not surprise me.
As with most religions it is the extremists that give a false impression of the religion.
In our current age, imho, Islam has been highjacked. I think most people, including myself, really do not know the teachings of Mohammed, Blessed be His Name. Christianity has gone down a secular, authoritarian line and it disables ears from hearing the real message of His Holiness, the Christ, Jesus.

I had long ago and for a long time, thought of the "One World Religion" or "NWO" from a Christian view (which is dogmatically against anything apart from it; and that WAS needed AT THAT TIME ). as a bad thing, authoritarian control...

I understand; but it is NOT REALLY THAT WAY as the Baha'i faith and His Blessed Beauty, Baha'u'llah has shared it with the world. We have matured as a society and people somewhat, [b]HOW BAD would it be to have ONE RELIGION and not have the wars and division caused by "reading different scripture"?[/b] See baha'i.org or bahai.us for more

The Baha'i faith has a beautiful, non clergy, non authoritarian solution: See each other and ourselves as ONE...flowers of the same garden, waves of one sea, leaves of one tree.

A song by Dan Seals (Baha'i), of the group England Dan and John Ford Coley, brother to Jim Seals of Seals and Crofts.

The teachings of the husband of Khadija are actually quite accessible; the Qu'ran is neither long nor complex, and the Muslim calendar is established by an event which tells much of what that belief system is about.

Though the four Gospels of tge New Testament are short abd easy to read, many Christians are misled by teachers who ignore the "Good News" and instead obsess about the Old Testament.

If you want to follow the teachings of the Baháʼí faith and think Baháʼu'lláh realizes a second coming of the Christ or whatever, you are welcome to do so, but different religions make different claims about ultimate reality, ultimate Truth, etc.; they are not interchangeable and do not cover the same territory, make the same or equivalent representations, nor offer the same (or any!) path forward.
Getting BACK to the original post; the NON-Muslim minority; would be the Christians or Jews or Baha'is in the region. Why are they persecuted in Iran; going against the teachings of Mohammed, Blessed be His Name. That really is a beautiful sentiment but is this being OBEYED by Muslims today??? Thank you for posting it; I wanted to "get back to the beginning" and not just show myself to "be one of the non-Muslim minority: as Baha'i, some see themselves not only as Christians or Jews or Muslims, or associate and love the Manifestation of God (Prophet) and his teachings but also ALL of the religions; loving all no matter to which religion they may adhere.

Thank you kindly. I have a "good" copy of the Qu'ran...also my KJV Bible in French and my Praise and Worship Version. I find the writings and prayers of Baha'u'llah, Abdul-Baha and the Bab to be most pleasant and LOVING toward all Humanity. I believe in a "progressive revelation", not over lap but pick up and teach humanity where it is now more mature to accept the teachings of a new Manifestation of God. Namaste.

What's up with airplane hijackers and suicide bombers? Guess they didn't get the memo.
[@1204745,Lust4Life], [@657449,ABCDEF7]

This might help to provide a fuller context:

He’s no pops.He’s an infiltrator..

No he won't. He'll give an account of the life given him before Jesus Christ, the righteous judge on that day.
Sharon · F
[@733370,GodSpeed63] Not going to happen. :)

BTW, you still haven't said how you're going to explain youself to Odin when you meet Him at the Doors to Valhalla. Maybe you'll have better luck with Allah.
