Can.anyone tell me the difference between Religion and deen?🙄🙄

syedmurtaza9’s Profile Photoاسیر زادہ ۔
Deen is the way of life i.e. complete code of life while religion includes spiritual and practices/ affairs only.
Deen includes religious and secular aspects of life e.g. economic system. Religion only caters to belief system and rituals.
Deen is dynamic and evolves with time but religion is static.
Deen is multi-dimensional encompassing relationship with God and transactions i.e. human relationship. Religion deals with the relation of God with man.
Deen is only one i.e. Islam but religions could be many i.e. Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism etc.

In Islam you are not allowed to make friends, girls cant use perfumes, you are not allowed to smoke, you have to wear burqa all the time. no i dont want to be a muslim there is no freedom.

In jew, uh have to go through some steps to attain liberation, in hinduism uh need to reborn in multiple beings to attain liberation, in Buddhism uh need to go through a process of liberation, in christianity, zoroasterism, daoism, ancient Chinese religions, jainism, bahaism, and many more religions have specific terms to attain liberation.
But islam says’ your good manners are your way to jannah’.

Would you date a person who isn't religious? Would you try to change them into being a believer?

My boyfriend isn't, but I'd never force him to believe what I do. I'd happily share Wicca with him if he showed an interest. But pushing and basically forcing religion onto someone is wrong and incredibly toxic!
I've had an unfortunate number of people on here try to basically "condemn my soul to hell" (their words not mine) because I don't follow their faith. Its unfortunately usually Christianity or Islam that is forced on me.. if anything it pushes me away from even wanting to learn about them!

Hello what you think about Islam?

It was definitely an interesting religion to learn about in school. Especially because of how diverse it was in comparison to traditional religion (Christianity) that I was raised in.
Personally it isn't a religion for me. There's aspects that I don't overly agree on. Same with Christianity. And sadly I have had people from both Christianity and Islam be incredibly disrespectful to me and my beliefs. I know they don't represent the religions on a whole, but it does leave a sour note.
Personally I follow Green Wicca! And I have never been happier within a belief system :3

Are there any interesting local legends where you're from?

My personal favourite that’s fairly local to me is the Chanctonbury Ring, with it being known as one of the most haunted locations in
the South Downs.
Legend has it, that the Devil had a hand in the formation of Chanctonbury Ring. When he discovered that the inhabitants of Sussex were being converted from previous pagan religions to Christianity he decided to drown them, with Sussex being the last county in England to convert to Christianity. If they converted, then the Devil would lose more of his power over the country.
He began digging a trench down to the sea from Poynings, sending large quantities of earth in every direction, one of which became Chanctonbury (I believe that the Isle of Wight may have been another). However, he was not to complete his work. An old lady living nearby placed a sieve in front of a lighted candle on her window ledge, in turn disturbing a cockerel perched on a fence. The devil heard the cockerel and, looking over his shoulder, saw what he thought was the sun rising and so fled before completing his task. (There are multiple versions to the latter part of the tale, this is just the one I know).
It is also said, that you can raise the devil at Chanctonbury Ring by running around the clump of trees seven times in an anti-clockwise direction. When he appears, he will offer you a bowl of soup or even porridge, in exchange for your soul.
My favourite association with the legend is that the Ring has gained something of a reputation in connection with witchcraft, UFO’s, ghosts and strange forces - particularly during the 70s, with levitations and sighting happening. Then you have the connection with the occult and Aleister Crowley frequently visiting the Ring too :)

Why is truth necessary?

In my opinion, we tend to confuse truth with fact. While they may be similar, truth is rather subjective.
Fact states something as it is and is universally absolute such as the Sun rising from the East and setting in the West. Meanwhile, truth states facts based on one's perspectives such as Muslims believing that Islam is the religion of truth whereas Christians believing that Christianity is the one.
So, to answer your question, truth serves as a compass and roadmap for us in making decisions that will eventually create an identity, individually and collectively.

🕍 Does religion do more harm than good?

It can do... it depends on the person!
Sadly it's the people who follow specific religions that cause the damage, not the actual religion itself!
There's a person on here who will harass women about Christianity. Only thing is, he isn't even speaking on his religion correctly. But it is people like that which are one of the reasons as to why I left that particular religion.
The people are what can be harmful, especially when they are blind to what they are doing.

Thank you and happy Eid.
I don't celebrate it 'cause I belong to the belief of Christianity. But thank you still for your wishes. And wish you the same. :3

Are you religious or spiritual, and if so what does that mean to you? How does it affect your life?

I was raised in the belief of Christianity, to be precisely I was raised as an evangelian. But I'm also a little spiritual myself. For me, believing in a higher entity is to have hope that I'm not alone and that there is someone or something that guides and protects me. I think it also inspires me to do good and to work on myself, in terms of personal growth. It also gives me a kind of safety feeling that all of the people and animals, in terms of their souls, that I've lost are safe and sound, somewhere in the hands of God.

What are your views on Christianity?

I grew up in a Catholic household, there was nothing super bad about it. I went to Catholic schools most my young life also. I also was an alter girl for 5+ years, by choice.
But after my father died when I was 16, I just sort of stopped believing in it. I couldn't understand why someone who was still kinda young, and a wonderful person was taken away. And other bad people keep going. Then there's other parts I just felt weird about. Like why should be do good things because God told us if we do good things we will go to heaven. Like... Surely you should do good things because it's the right thing to do period. Regardless where you go when you die. And when good stuff does happen in life, I feel like God gets all the credit, when actually it's from all the blood sweat and tears of people on earth.
Also as I've gotten older I just became a bit more free thinking. Wanted to decide for myself what life was about and not have stuff from a book, they think was written by some man about a guy there's no proof existed other than his word.
I respect anyone who believes it, and don't deny them that. I am open minded. If that's the truth, I accept it. But I wasn't to be open minded to other possibilities and not just have tunnel vision on one thing.

aribasultan1998’s Profile PhotoAriba
I still remember although I guess more than a year have passed since that thing happened. Actually on askfm an anon was questioning about Islam and he was arguing that bible is better than Quran and Christianity is better than Islam. Criticizing Islam for the terrorism in world. And that debate continued for so many days.
A man on askfm idk if he's still here, he said that
"I've seen you talking to this anon for so many days and I am so amazed to see that you've been dealing him with such maturity and patience without any expression of anger. You've a beautiful soul and a kind personality. It's difficult to handle such situations but your points are so valid and strong. I'm rooting for you" He said some other kind words as well but I don't remember exactly. Thank you once again for encouraging me that day ♥️🌺✨

My family are atheists/agnostic. My grandfather removed us from what would of been the family religion, but it wasn't Christianity or Catholicism, it was Jehovah's Witness which only makes birthday cakes and taking full advantage of national healthcare when needed all the sweeter.

Do you think God has a gender?

In a history of Africa, when Christianity came there, they made Jesus to be black in a certain year, so they would feel better about themselves and won't feel like just because he is white, he have a privilege to be considered as God.
In Bible Jesus was male. Some conspiracy theorists believe that Jesus was an alien.
I am trying to make a point here that we don't really know anything about the God and there are many of them, who are male or female, if to speak about the gender.

Is religion necessary to motivate people to behave morally? what are you thinking?

Morality is a construct and it’s kind of fucked up that people need a higher being to tell them how to behave or judge others based on that moral compass that religion sets in stone (I’m referencing Christianity mostly here). I don’t think it’s not necessary, it’s the approach that should be different. Instead of teaching people they’ll be punished or rewarded for how they act, wouldn’t it be more efficient and mature to think simply that your actions have consequences? That’s why I like this magick axiom: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”

We’re you born into a religion

Technically, yes. My family were Adventist (denomination of Christianity) when I was born.
But, when i got to around 12 years old both my parents had me study world religions & decide on my own what I believe. When I was 15 my dad tried getting me to go to church with him but i threw down some knowledge on him so i didnt have to go anymore 😂 i said, “if you believe in God all the time, & your faith comes from within why do i have to go to church & why am i supposed to always give money for having faith? Aren’t you supposed to be practicing your faith every day? Why do i have to go compete with others on who believes harder?” He was literally speechless 🤣

My boyfriend wants me to convert to Christianity. We've been dating over 1.5years and he's never mentioned how serious he is about it considering we've already done the deed multiple times. He told me he's struggling & thinks we won't work if I don't convert. I love him but idk what to do

Just because he's your boyfriend doesn't mean he can force you to do or believe in something you don't want to do

Y a-t-il des livres qui t'inspirent ? 😀

I’m reading the Brothers Karamazov right now, about 100 pages in. I’d say that it’s a highly philosophical book, and it’s filled with interesting characters. It’s been a while since I felt like I was enjoying every page of a book. Personally, I’m not sure how I feel about there being so many passages reflecting Christianity, but there’s a character who reflects Atheism as well. It seems to be a book that tells the perspective of each of its’ characters, and each of the characters has something charming about them, even if they’re described horribly. Most of the characters so far seem fairly flawed, and in that, Dostoyevsky shares some lessons from the morally superior characters. I think what I enjoy most about the book is the surprising way in which I find myself identifying with the characters for their flaws and for their longings. I also feel that I’ll be struggling to pinpoint what precisely about the book is so touching for the duration of my reading. I have about 700 pages left to figure it out, haha. :)
I read Infinite Jest while withdrawing from heroin and meth. It was, maybe, the worst few weeks of my entire life. I had been addicted for years - living outside or on a friend's floor, shoplifting batteries to return for store credit just so I could get something to eat (I would have never spent my cash on food), begging dealers to give me just enough so I could feel good enough to come up with some bullshit plan to get more money, etc - and I needed to try something new, immediately. I decided to pick up Infinite Jest, as I'd heard it dealt with some of the issues I was having such a hard time with, and something clicked inside of me. I had never before read what seemed like my own thoughts put so beautifully. I didn't realize there were other people out there that understood depression and addiction in the way I understood it. I felt alone until I read that book. It legitimately changed my life. It opened my eyes to the little everyday things I had been missing, and the importance of compassion. I had been truly alone - even when surrounded by other people - for so long, and David Foster Wallace became, during that time, the best friend I ever had. I didn't want to go out and use anymore, I wanted to stay home and read. I truly believe it played a significant role in saving my life, and sparked what I know will be a lifelong love of literature. I am addicted to reading now, and I could never describe to you just how much my life has improved over the past few years.
It came at the right time for me in my life and really inspired me to adopt a less self pitying view of the world. It taught me that the world is chaotic, life is unfair, and there will always be people who hate you for simply existing outside the norm, but standing up for yourself and taking the risky step toward self determination and fulfillment is always the better choice even when it fail completely. It is better than stagnant unhappiness.

What do you think about christians?

hi anon, I'm going to rephrase your question to, "What is your perception of Christians?"
my perception of christians based on my experience growing up around them and those who have been raised as christians is that they are generally kind and understanding.
I recall a fond childhood memory where I happened to be at a classmate/friend's home just before we went to primary school together (we carpooled, because both our families lived in the same condominium nearby).
my classmate's mum said that they had to pray before leaving for school, and I politely asked if I could watch them. I had always been curious as to how christians conducted their prayers, and wanted to observe them for myself.
their mum said yes, and I took a step back to watch eagerly — and politely, of course.
I was so fascinated and enthralled at how they performed their prayers and the words they used in their recitation. from then on, I had an even greater respect for them (i.e. christians), their practices, and traditions.
growing up, I made, and kept friends who practiced (or grew up learning) christianity because it was easy to discuss religious matters with them — given the nature of the religion that I practice (islam) and the religion that they practice. since we were subscribed to abrahamic religions, the nature of our conversations and discussions flowed easily.
of course, not every christian I've met and befriended are kind. like with every major religion, there are bound to be those who are "bad apples" and their behaviours do not properly reflect the teachings of their said religion/faiths.
this never deterred me from wanting to learn more about other faiths and their similarities/differences between them. in fact, it made me more open-minded, understanding, and tolerant towards those of different beliefs.
especially as a teenager, fresh out of high school, entering my first job at my favourite local museum. we passed the time by discussing our pastimes, school lives, hopes/dreams/ambitions, and of course, our take(s) on religion.
the way in which we conducted ourselves during these fruitful discussions have impacted how I view and perceive christians or those who grew up learning/practising the christianity.
that's all I can say about it, anon. I hope my answer suffices for you (and whomever else is reading this). ☺️😌

But the origins of Brigid's cross are far older than Christianity, thought? Originally it was used during Imbolc and was related to the Goddess Brigid, not the saintess. Its main purpose was to protect a house from fire and harm; and their original purpose doesn't fit with the Saintess' story

nevalorsen3159’s Profile PhotoThe Scarlet Ibis
Not quite.
Here is a link
About the origins
Of Saint Brigid’s cross.
The first was created
To teach about the crucifixion
Of “Jesus”.
The charm you’re thinking of
Is the goddess Bríg’s triskele charm.
To a Brigid’s cross
But only having three points.
The idea of Saint Brigid
Was a tactic of manipulation
Used by Catholics
To christianize Irish pagans.
They told the celts
“Saint Brigid” was the goddess Bríg
Or Brigit
in some spelling
Incarnated as a mortal.
In order to convince them
To follow the saint’s teachings.
And thus
Recreated Bríg’s triskele branch charm
To appear as a cross.
Bríg’s triskele
Never warded off
The supernatural.
It was a symbol of empowerment.
It praised the company
Of the gods and the Fae.

All the Holy books didn't convince u to convert to any religion... Do u think I 'll convince u that this 's wrong and it's considered a sin in any religion whether in Islam, Christianity or even Judaism ?!!!!!!
My talk would be about the logic in these books which u already don't believe in
So any discussion would be a waste of time and energy
But Anyway Away from my religion principles and beliefs
I think this industry is a SILENT RAPE
Every person who works in it suffers from humiliation but prefers silent cuz he knows at the end he gets money

I had asked a sheikh and he said that all the prophets were muslims. How was prophet Issa (Jesus ) muslim although Allah ( the god) descent the bible ( christianity ) upon his hands ? And prophet Mosa as well ?

الذي أجابك به : صحيح
فدين الأنبياء كلهم : الإسلام ، قال الله تعالى "إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الْإِسْلَامُ ۗ وَمَا اخْتَلَفَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْعِلْمُ بَغْيًا بَيْنَهُمْ ۗ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ "
ومادام قال "إن الدين عند الله الإسلام" فهذه قاعدة ..أي أن الدين المقبول عند الله عز وجل= الإسلام
وعن عيسى عليه السلام اقرئي قول الله تعالى : "فَلَمَّا أَحَسَّ عِيسَى مِنْهُمُ الْكُفْرَ قَالَ مَنْ أَنْصَارِي إِلَى اللَّهِ قَالَ الْحَوَارِيُّونَ نَحْنُ أَنْصَارُ اللَّهِ آَمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَاشْهَدْ بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ "
وموسى عليه السلام قبله قال الله جل ذكره "وَقَالَ مُوسَى يَا قَوْمِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ آَمَنْتُمْ بِاللَّهِ فَعَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلُوا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُسْلِمِينَ "
والإسلام الذي هو دين الأنبياء كافة = هو الإسلام العام بمعنى عبادة الله تعالى وحده لا شريك له والانقياد له بالطاعة المطلقة ، وأصول الشرائع فيه والأخلاق :واحدة..لكن تختلف بعض الشرائع من نبي لآخر ، لملاءمة الحال وفق الحكمة التشريعية..
ولمّا كان رسول الله محمد آخر الرسل صلى الله عليه وسلم كانت شريعته أكمل الشرائع وهي شاملة للناس كافة ..
والإنجيل أنزله الله على المسيح عليه الصلاة والسلام ،وفيه الإسلام العام ..مع إلزام قومه بشرائع تخص بني إسرائيل في زمانه ..ثم إنه حُرّف وضاع ، فلما بعث الله تعالى نبيه الخاتم تكفل بحفظ الوحي فقال "إنا نحن نزلنا الذكر وإنا له لحافظون"

Даже алкашу Аркадию нужны периоды трезвости, чтобы порадоваться тому что он наконец-то выпьет, чего не будет в вечном блаженстве. Вымышленный антипод земным страданиям, блестящий фантик для любителей уповать на незримое, нежели на себя. Живи правильно - в конце д̶а̶д̶у̶т̶ ̶О̶с̶к̶а̶р̶. А в аду что?

stmt999’s Profile PhotoJack of Spades♠️
Вау, игры со шрифтами - не думал, что тут так можно)
Я слишком сильно утрировал, дабы придать примеру яркости. Конечно, при более детальном взгляде это легко разрушить, хехе)
А вообще - это слабость организма, а не разума. Будь у этого Аркадия возможность выводить токсины так, чтобы не терять опьянение - он пил бы до бесконечности (до потери средств). Пить-то можно сколько угодно 🤷‍♂️
На самом деле, в этом и есть проблема человеческого мировоззрения. Страдания - это неотъемлимая часть бытия. Если ты не будешь чувствовать боли - не сможешь создавать для себя рамки и ограничения, которые будут делать тебя лучше.
А кормить себя условными "завтраками" по поводу того, что осознание проблем приведёт тебя к лучшей жизни попахивает самообманом.
Осознание - это только один из пшажков к исправлению себя, и с полпинка таким не займёшься.
Поэтому осуждаю христианство за такое.
В аду - ничего. Пустота. Всё то, что неприемлимо человечеству. Некая антиматерия. Абсолютное заточение тела и разума.
Впрочем, такое и в жизни бывает - инвалидность. Тюрьма. Восстановление после наркотиков.
Не думаю, что в Аду есть место людям, которые его не заслуживают.
Even the alcoholic Arkady needs periods of sobriety in order to rejoice that he will finally drink, which will not be in eternal bliss. A fictional antipode to earthly suffering, a brilliant candy wrapper for those who like to rely on the invisible, rather than on themselves. Live correctly - at the end he gets O̶s̶k̶a̶r̶. And what in hell?
Aww, games with fonts - I didn't think it was possible here)
I exaggerated too much to make the example brighter. Of course, on a closer look, this is easily ruined, hehe)
In general, it is the weakness of the body, not the mind. If this Arkady had the opportunity to remove toxins so as not to lose intoxication, he would drink indefinitely (to the point of losing funds). You can drink as much as you like 🤷‍♂️
In fact, this is the problem of the human worldview. Suffering is an integral part of being. If you do not feel pain, you will not be able to create for yourself the framework and limitations that will make you better.
And feeding yourself conditional "breakfasts" about the fact that awareness of problems will lead you to a better life smacks of self-deception.
Realization is just one of the steps to self-correction, and you can't do that with a half-kick.
Therefore, I condemn Christianity for this.
Nothing in hell. Emptiness. Everything that is unacceptable to humanity. Some kind of antimatter. Absolute confinement of body and mind.
However, this also happens in life - disability. Jail. Recovery from drugs.
I don't think there is a place in Hell for people who don't deserve it.

Is Islam more rational than Christianity? If yes, why does Christianity have the largest following? Is it because in most cases one becomes biased to the religion one is born to? Is it because rationality is not really a relevant factor in religion?

Yes, definitely.
Islam is more rational than the "current" Christianity, since in Islam, Christianity was a true religion but then it got distorted and most of the bibles nowadays are not the scripture that was revealed to Jesus -peace be upon him-.
Well, if it's more rational than Christianity, then why does it have the largest following in the world -so far-?
Short answer:
Power and politics.
Long answer:
Before the colonial age, you had two major religions in the world, Islam and Christianity, and many other places in the world were undecided yet or have other religions, then the colonial age started and religion was used by the imperial powers as a political tool, if you land in South American for example and make it a Protestant land, then it would be pledging allegiance to the United Kingdom, or Catholicism to be following Spain.. etc.
That's the first point:
2. When the colonial age started, Muslims weren't much of a super power anymore and didn't think about traversing the seas giving Dawah to people, while the christian institutions sent missionaries to Africa, South American And Australia, making these lands Christian majorities.
3. The percentage of practicing Muslims around the word are much higher than practicing Christians, so a large portion of Christians are non-practicing or don't care much about religion and don't attend services.
4. Christianity has many sects, and most of them have quite a considerable number of followers, and that divides the number even more, so considering Christianity now to be a one unified religion is kind of a stretch.
5. And the most important point:
Most of the Christians don't quite know their religion, you could stop a Christian in the street, read them a verse that you made up and claim that it's from the Gospel of John, and they will believe you.. The materialistic world right now views religion either as a tool or a hindrance to the progress of the world, but for those who search and try to find the truth, you will find that Islam is the fastest growing religion when people actually search and learn or when they're given Dawah.
So I think looking at the percent of growth or decline in number would be a more indicative evidence of what you're asking.

if you’re saying family that lives under the same roof works together better bc of religion you couldn’t be more wrong

Does the church of rome admit it committed crimes against humanity and the human spirit? Should every religion take responsibility and heal the people it hurt?

The Catholic Church is perfect in her moral teaching though the individual members, even individuals from amongst its clergy, very often fail to follow these teachings.
Similarly as a religion Christianity has not hurt anyone but only healed. Where Christians have hurt others they do have the responsibility to ask forgiveness and to make restitution where they can.
For anyone who is suffering from hurt the Catholic Church is their most loving Mother and is ever waiting with outstretched arms to embrace them.

hot take but i find it pretty stupid how y'all will criticize christianity until jesus christ rebirths but then as soon as someone points out a basic fact about islam that you just happen not to like it is "islamophobic"

okay but no, really
like i was raised orthodox, not even the type of christianity that is synonymous w bigotry or anything like that, and i dealt w so much bs from other people about my religion. not that thats bad, like ultimately i dont care and it doesnt bother me at all. make fun of “sky daddy,” idc. but the fact that people can endlessly criticize, tear apart and make fun of christianity but islam is off limits is ... so weird to me
i read something the other day in the manson subreddit abt how the modern equivalent to what he did back in the 90s would be someone getting on stage and ripping the quran or something - but that itd never happen bc it would completely ruin someones career. i thought that was interesting like ... why ? we acknowledge that the catholic church has a HUGE problem w covering up abuse but you even mention the prophet and aisha and you get attacked by a mob..its just bizarre

wat do u think about islam?

As an Abrahamic belief system, I do not perceive Islam any differently than I view Judaism or Christianity. I can respect and support some of the traditional elements shared by these religions and while I wouldn't be able to embrace all facets of any variant, I believe that each one has the potential to offer solace, wisdom and inspiration to adherents. Regarding any radical / fundamentalist offshoots of these religions, they are perversions of genuine tenets / ideals and should be ignored.

In Christianity we also believe in one God, in Islam people believe in one God 2.Ofc, there are some peculiarities in these religions. They r certainly different. I know a little about Islam, I know about Allah, the Koran, bt I wan2 know how the worship of your God happens, what do u do every day?

Part 1 🥺🥺❤
Please don't be mad from me and I hope that you won't be offended of what I will say 🥺🥺🥺
What are the Islamic beliefs briefly?
God definition in Christianity!
I wish it was simple just as you said!
Christians believe that there is one God but they are 3 at the same time!
Father is a God, Holy Spirit is a God & Jesus is a God!
They are all independent from each other!
They are all distinct from each other!
There are 5 objections here:
1. Why we have to believe that they are one God while they are 3 Gods?
They will never be one!
Did God sent God to crucify God in order to please God?
Did the trinity sent a part of it in order to be crucified to please the trinity?
2. This definition isn't found in the bible itself but rather it was born in 325!
Matthew 21:11
"And the crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee."
John 6:14
" Therefore when the people saw the sign which he had performed, they said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world."
3. Why they attribute to God such as these attributions?
1. Lamb Rev 17:14
2.Forgetfulness Psalm 13:1
3. Sleep Pslam 44:23
4. GOD wrestling with Jacob Gen 32:24-31
4. We are told in the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible that the disciples were being guided by the Holy Spirit. If Jesus is God, surely they should know it. But they did not. They kept worshipping the one true God who was worshipped by Abraham, Moses, and Jesus (see Acts 3:13).
5. Jesus said in John 14:28
"The Father is greater than I."
If they are the same one God, how it could be possible to say that?
Why Jesus can't be God nor son of God?!
And in vain they worship Me.
Matthew 15:9
1. Can God be killed or died! No!
Therefore Jesus wasn't God!
** Just note that We don't believe that Jesus PBUH was crucified!
2. Is God all-knowing? Yes.
Was Jesus all-knowing? No, He wasn't!
Jesusdid notknowthedayand hour of the day of Judgment! Therefore We can know the trinity isn't true, because if they were one God! Each one of them should have the ultimate knowledge! And can't be separated from each other!
3. Jesus in the bible is always referred to him as a different person than God!
John 17:3
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, (the only true God,) and (Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.")
Do you need a bigger evidence than this?
Jesus isn't powerful! He can't do anything by himself!
I can’t do anything by myself. Whatever I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just. I don’t seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me. John 5:30
in Matthew 19:17, Jesus responded to one who addressed him as "O good master", saying: "Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one. that Is God:'
lf he rejected being called "good", and stated that only God is truly good. he clearly implies that he is not God!

are there opinions you held in the past that you don't believe anymore? if so, what were they? what prompted you to change your mind?

poetalunam’s Profile Photoleigh;
I used to think having premarital sex was the worst thing I could ever do, and then I did it. I even have an answer somewhere in my top likes about how adamant my beliefs were about it, but I don't know. Everything changed when I went to college and actually started dating around. The bubble of conservative Christianity that I lived in seemed incredibly... unpromising. My chances of finding a guy who believed the same thing as me were slim to none. Not that I tried to look for one, because I found out the hard way that even if you agree on one belief, you probably won't agree on all of them. Looking back, if I wanted to stay a virgin, I probably shouldn't have dated anyone, but life's too short for that. I'm 21 and I've already been diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Who's gonna date me now, lol. I still think it would've been good to wait for someone who could've ticked a few more boxes, and if I have children I'm still probably going to encourage them to stay abstinent, especially during teen years. Once they're an adult though, it's up to them to make their own choices.

I respect very much your concern about misunderstanding Scripture and so will no longer question you about 2 Samuel 7:14. You mentioned in your answer that all the religions worship one God, explicitly mentioning Islam and Christianity. Do Christianity and Islam teach the same things about God?

Islam considers Jesus to be al-Masih, the Arabic term for Messiah, sent to guide the Children of Israel with a new revelation: al-Injil (Arabic for "the Gospel").
Christianity believes Jesus to be the Messiah of the Hebrew scripture, the Son of God, and God the Son, while Muslims consider the Trinity to be a division of God's Oneness and a grave sin (shirk). Muslims believe Jesus (Issa) to be a messenger of God, not the son of God.

With Christopher Columbus being more and more unpopular as time has gone on, what other historical figures may we see go from beloved to loathed?

His initial popularity was based on the notion that it was excellent to impose Christianity on the inhabitants of the New World. And to treat them as inferiors to be ruled by the White Race. Or just replaced, as in what became the USA. Such behaviour is increasingly seen as unacceptable.

i need the answer of this Q at first then i will depend it on the other question Muslim think that Jesus did not die ?

Good morning Relam,
Yes, Muslims believe that Jesus wasn't killed on the cross.
And aside from the fact that God told us so in the Quran, there is multiple evidence also from the Christian doctrine that supports that, from the bible and from different Christian scholars as well as Christians sects who didn't believe Jesus was killed on the cross and were deemed heretics by the Catholic church.
Here are some of the evidence that would be interesting to consider:
1- None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus peace be upon him- All that was mentioned is that his students fleed when the soldiers came and that there were only some women who witnessed it, and then mentioned later that these women found the tomb empty.. But that's it..
2- In the bible, it's mentioned that Jesus prayed to God to save him from that horrifying fate, in Mathews 26:39 it says:
"And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt."
And from the English standard bible, the verse goes "He went forward a little, fell on his face, and prayed, saying, "My
Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from me; nevertheless,
not what I desire, but what you desire."
so we have options to look at here in order to escape from this conundrum:
a. Jesus being, in the current Christian doctrine, fully God and fully man is not supposed to plea to God since he's already God! Also, being God, he should know that this is what he came here for? Right? I mean the very core of current Christianity is believing that Jesus died for our sins, that's the whole message, allegedly, then how does he not know the message by which he was sent? And I saw Stephan mention that this was him in his human form, but didn't the bible say "For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form", but even if we overlook this, wouldn't it make sense for Jesus (the man) to pray to Jesus (the god)? Why pray instead to the Father?
b. If Jesus was indeed in his human form oblivious of the god form he has, then how would he preach that he was God? And if he is indeed God's son, wouldn't god fulfill the request of his own son?
And here comes what is indeed the truth, that God accepted Jesus' prayers and he ascended to heaven and a resemblance was casted on one of his disciples who was crucified in his place.
God says in the Quran in Surah An-Nisa
"That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the
Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so
it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of
doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for
of a surety, they killed him not."
I hope this clarifies the matter for you, I am going to comment on the other answer in a wee bit.
