Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2011-128, Koran Klarifications: Hatred of Jews

Consider this statement,
“Abraham was neither Jew nor Christian; but he was sound in the faith, a Muslim; and not of those who add gods to God.”  Surah 3, “The Family of Imrhan,” verse 67
Do you get this?  Abraham, the father of the Jews is now not a Jew.  Abraham was really a Muslim.  It doesn’t matter that there is not a shred of evidence for this outside the Koran, because Allah has declared it, it is so.  I remember talking to a Palestinian who told me that Jesus was not a Jew.  You can see why these people got along so well with the Nazis.

Do you have a Muslim who acts like a friend?  Read this.
“O Believers! take not the Jews or Christians22 as friends. They are but one another's friends. If any one of you taketh them for his friends, he surely is one of them! God will not guide the evil doers.”  Surah 5, “The Table,”  Verse 51
Notice that anyone who takes a Jew of Christian for a friend is one of “them.”  That means he has become an Infidel. 

You need to be careful to people who talk of a religion of peace and how we can live together.  Those are the words of someone who either does not know his Koran or does not believe what it teaches.

All Koran quotes are from the translation by Rev. J.M. Rodwell, M.A. provided by the Gutenberg Project.
