DOES THE BIBLE USE THE WORD MUSLIM?

Religion, Bible,Does the Bible use the word Muslim?,Luke 6:40,Bible Luke, Islam, Religion sucks,
This post is presented to refute the gross misuse of Luke 6:40 by Muslims who claim that verse uses the term Muslim when translated upon translation of another translation.

Once again, we have desperate Muslims performing linguistic gymnastics in an attempt to misrepresent the etymology of a specific word. Here we find Muslims citing Luke 6:40 as if it says the word Muslim. Apparently, Muslims don't see the fallacious aspect of their argument when making a claim that a specific word is the same based on similar sounds these words make? A rat must be a cat, and house a mouse because they sound similar?

Folks, please keep in mind that the Injil (Gospels) was first written in Greek, not in Hebrew or Aramaic, nor in Arabic.

Here is Luke 6:40, "The disciple is not above his master; but everyone that is perfect shall be as his master."

The Greek word that Muslims are jumping through hoops to perform their linguistic gymnastics is "katertismenos" derived from the word "katardidzo" according to the Greek lexicon. The following is how this word is rendered according to the Strong's Concordance as noted from Blue Letter Bible (www.blueletterbible.org):

1) to render, i.e. to fit, sound, complete
a) to mend (what has been broken or rent), to repair
i) to complete
b) to fit out, equip, put in order, arrange, adjust
i) to fit or frame for one's self, prepare
c) ethically: to strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be

Yet, apparently, these Muslims in the midst of their linguistic gymnastics, forgot to talk with someone that knows how to speak Hebrew.

When one reads the Hebrew translation of Luke 6:40 is:

התלמיד אינו יודע יותר ממורו, אולם אם ילמד בשקידה ובחריצות יוכל להגיע לרמת ידיעותיו של המורה.

The Greek word “katērtismenos” is translated into Hebrew as “learn diligence”. Nowhere will you find the word “she’mushlam” in this verse, as this is not a proper rendering of the translation of the Greek word into Hebrew. Furthermore, even if one was to appeal to such an argument, the entire word as noted from these deceitful Muslims is she'mushlam which does not mean Muslim unless the one making such arguments purposely distorts the word to omit the "she"??? In addition, as noted by the definitions above, we find that the Greek word "katērtismenos" does not denote submission, which the 7th Century term Muslim implies. Therefore, these words carry different meanings, which means they are not the same nor did anyone in the 1st Century imply them to be a religious term associated with Islam.

Thus, this begs the question, if the so-called term "she'mushlam" means Muslim, then why was this term not used significantly elsewhere in religious texts to denote such a religion or people group? Why did it take until the 7th Century before the term was originated as Muslim in the Arabic? Why do Muslims have to appeal to a translation of a translation of a translation in an attempt to find a specific word, when the context of such a reading does not give premise to the usage of the 7th Century meaning? This is an etymological fallacy in which a reader attempts to misuse or misrepresent the original or historical meaning of a word or phrase as if it was similar to a more modern term, such as a Muslim attempting to read back a 7th Century term as if it was the same in the 1st Century.

Thereby, I challenge any Muslim to provide any ancient antiquity of evidence proving that in the 1st Century the term "she'mushlam" referred to one who submits? However, what is even more damaging is the fact the Greek word "katērtismenos" has as root καταρτίζω, which when it is translated into Arabic, it is بصيرة (baseera), meaning insight, able to see, sober or perception.

Yet, here is the final nail in the coffin of the Muslim who appeals to such an argument which is taken from their own Koran. Please keep in mind that Jesus was present on earth during the 1st Century, and His disciples were present during and after His ministry.

Surah 61:14 “O ye who believe! Be ye helpers of Allah: As said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples, "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the disciples, "We are Allah's helpers!" then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed, against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.”

Surah 3:52 “But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he cried: who will my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said we will be Allah's helpers. We believe in Allah and bear thou witness that we have surrendered.”

Surah 3:55 “Behold! Allah said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE SUPERIOR to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.”

COW FESTIVAL | GAI JATRA

Cow Festival,Gai Jatra, Religion, Cow Festival in Nepal,King Pratap,Malla,What is Cow Festival,What is Gai Jatra?
Gai Jatra, The Festival Cows/Remembering the Dead: The festival commemorates the death of people during the year and is generally celebrated in the month of Bhadra, the fifth month of Nepali lunar calendar (August-September). As cow is regarded to be the most venerated among domestic animals, she is believed to accompany the soul of the dead to other realms. That is why the festival is named Cow Festival.

The Festival of Cows is one of the most popular festivals of Nepal. It is celebrated by the community/s to remember and honor defunct and to diminish the sadness from the loss of a family member/s. During the festival, cows are marched in the streets, palanquins with the statues and pictures of different divinities are carried on shoulders, children dressed in disguise of different gods and goddess walk in the streets, mask dancers follow the rhythm of drums, banners are carried with the pictures of dead, musical instruments are played, stick dances are performed, food and drinks are offered to public, parades of traditionally dressed old and young follow in line carrying incenses and more. The multifaceted Gai Jatra festival has its roots in the ancient times when people feared death and started worshiping Yama, the lord, and messenger of death.

It is said that when King Pratap Malla lost his son, the queen remained grief-stricken like any anyone for a long time. The king was very sad to see the condition of his beloved queen. Nobody was able to help queen heal from this loss. In order to make his wife understand that death is imminent and is a part of the natural process, he called on people for a carnival if someone had died in their families. Many people came out on the call of the King from the families who had lost their dear ones. Thus began the celebration of Cow Festival to heal members of the family suffering from the loss, to remember the dead and also to remind us all that life is guided by impermanence and death is imminent!

ATHEIST WHO HAS SEEN GOD

Philosophical Thought, Atheism, An Atheist who has seen God, God and holy spirit, God, We eat we shit, Butterfly effect, Atheist and God
I speak as an atheist who has seen God.
Why is the knowledge of good and evil sinful and worthy of death? If you can answer such a riddle, you too may see the divine Truth.

Here are a few hints to contemplate:

God is the alpha and omega. The beginning and the end.

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed only changed from.

God is eternal.

Given a long enough timeline all things that can happen, will happen.

We do not know what happened prior to the big bang, but that it all came from nothing sounds silly, maybe.

For change to exist, something must have come before as it causes, therefore, change has been rolling around eternally.

The holy spirit is in all things.

Good and evil are subjective. Knowledge of the distinctions of good and evil is the cause for its creation, a rock or a tree has no sense of good nor bad. As such it does not suffer nor die, only does it change in form.

We are all gods children and all that is is in his plan.

Dust to dust, ashes to ashes. We eat, we shit, we shed skin hair and nails. We die and our bodies break apart. Born of the act of creation, the big bang, born of burning hydrogen. Born of trees and of rock, once we were stars and no doubt we will be again.

Butterfly effect. Chemicals react. All is one. Those who see themselves in God and God in all things is one who knows the truth.

Contemplate, meditate and pray on these thoughts, live a life that feels as close as you can get to being worthy of having lived, seek to grow in the good and the wise constantly. Question yourselves and all else, find the truth :)

UNIVERSE EXIST

Universe exist,Existing,Exist,Universe, Philosophical Thought,
Something significant has shifted for me today. My previous consideration of the first cause argument completely crumbled.
I've been so harshly indoctrinated into the epistemological approach of invisible character fillers that it really took me a while to realize that I was coming to the argument all wrong. When people argue about a first cause, it usually appears that both people are trying to provide an answer to two equally valuable questions. "How could something come from nothing?" and "Could the physical universe have an infinite regression?"
Those sound like two equally valuable mysteries, right? Totally wrong.
I don't claim to know much about physics, and that makes it kind of intimidating to talk about. But I have followed new articles about the general cosmological theories.
At this point in history, it seems like we're at a point again, where thinkers have only said: "We thought we knew, but we were wrong again, or can't be sure." At some point, professionals believed that time had a beginning, and then they refuted themselves in many cases.
We have to acknowledge that it's math. It's a thing that's attempting to mathematically project only a very approximate understanding into the motions of the observable universe, and it's not an overstepping telescope that travels back in time. So understandably the big bang is still one of the biggest mysteries out there.
So, what I've been realizing is that there is literally no reason to ever suggest that a person has to provide a theory on how something could come from nothing.
The most factual thing that we know of to be true is that the universe exists. That's it. That is the end and all of what we know for sure. There's never been a point where it's knowably not existed, to us.
The non-existence of the universe is the ONLY assumption and only seemingly anti-scientific claim that would ever have to be proved, and not the other way around. Because of the non-existence of the universe, and the existence of the universe on not on equal grounds, as far as probability goes. So far it's only and in every way 100% verifiable that the universe does exist. In light of this it's a harsh 0% probably, and 0% verifiable that the universe has ever not existed.
Asking someone how something could come from nothing is like asking someone what if you existed, even though you didn't exist also?
That's a really weird abstract thing to believe and have faith in, that something that we know exists used to not exist in magical ways we can't even imagine. That's the greater assumption if compared with the concept of infinite physical regression.

WAS MUHAMMAD A PEDOPHILE?

Islam, Prophet Muhammad, Pedophile,Pedophile Muhammad,Was Muhammad a Pedophile?,Muhammad and Aisha,
Was Muhammad a PEDOPHILE?
Muhammad - and any 54-year-old man who has sex with a nine-year-old PREPUBESCENT little girl, for that matter - is a pedophile!

This Prophetic analogy - where Israel is depicted as a baby girl growing, developing, and coming of age - makes that point very, very clear. It states ~

“‘Then I passed by and saw you kicking about in your blood, and as you lay there in your blood I said to you, “Live!” I made you grow like a plant of the field. You grew and developed and entered PUBERTY. Your breasts had formed and your hair had grown, yet you were stark naked. “ ‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were OLD ENOUGH FOR LOVE...” (Ezekiel 16:6-8)

Not only did the girl (i.e., Israel) FIRST reach PUBERTY, but it was only AFTER that point that Yahweh said that she was READY FOR LOVE.

And even when judged by the scriptures of the PAGANS Muhammad is indubitably found to be a pedophile ~

"Thus the man will be paired with the girl, who is yet a virgin, ONLY AFTER MATURING, WHEN HER BOSOM HAS FULLY DEVELOPED, And when the young man's beard is seen upon his cheek, Within the gardens and paths will she find her husband" (Atrahasis: Tablet 1).*

MUHAMMAD THE TWISTER OF HISTORICAL FACTS

Muhammad Ibn Abdullah appeared to be a member of the Islamic militant group of the Islamic militant group of the Islamic Republic of Iran. in Arabia. A few examples will explain what I mean:

1. The story of Abraham is the father of the Jewish race of Christian faith was twisted to be the Ancestor of Muhammad the Qyurash Arab through the Ishmael of the last of Abraham of whom God has no covenant. Gen 17:21, 21: 2

2. The story of Abraham was twisted to Abraham (Gen 22; 2) was twisted to Sarah the wife of Abraham (Gen 22; 2) was twisted to Ishmael and his Egyptian mother was born out of wedlock (Q2: 127) Abraham who was tried to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah is a prophet in Islam who followed his father to the valley of Mecca to build Kaaba the shrine of the polytheists which became the center of Islamic worship . Can you believe this?

3. The story of Alexander the Great, the Greek conqueror and King who conquered the world of his time, as well as the history of the two horn man was Twisted to an Islamic prophet and Messengers of Allah called Dhul-Garnain in the Quran 18: 83-86, he was said to have been sent by Allah to follow the sun till he reached the land of the setting sun to either punish them or allow them to live. Can you believe this?

4. The story of Mary the mother of Jesus from Judah who born Jesus in Bethlehem of Judea in a manger was twisted to be Meriam the sister of Aaron the brother of Moses from the tribe of Levi who gave birth to Jesus ) - (he probably means Esau the twin brother of Jacob who is Isa in Arabic) under a Palm tree. (Q19: 23-28) Can you believe this?

5. The story of Jesus Christ who was confirmed crucified by Roman soldiers dead and buried but rose again after three days and ascended to heaven after forty days of appearing to his disciples and giving him much assurance of his resurrected life and gave him his last command (Q4: 157.) Can you believe this? I did not have any problems.

6. The Story of Jesus Coming back again as the kingdom of Kings and Lords of Lord (Rev 1: 8,19: 16 was twisted means Jesus only coming back to deny Christians who worship him as God burn crosses, marry and live as a Muslim and die and be buried beside the grave of Muhammad. Can you believe this? Let me stop here and wait for the Muslims response.

BIBLE NOT THE BIBLE MENTIONED IN QURAN

Islam, Religion, Bible in Quran, Bible not the Bible mentioned in Quran, Muhammad did not know anything about Bible, Bible and Quran, Prophet Muhammad,
Bible not the bible mentioned in Quran. So many names of books are mentioned in the Quran. And Muslims were initially very proud of their many books such as the Torah, the Injeel and the Book of Zabur, which is mentioned by the Quran.
But you know, if you ask which books are these? None of the Muslims can answer it. Because none of those books appear in their form or they cannot explain which book of Torah, Injeel, and Zabur is meant by the Quran.
Meanwhile, according to the Quran, these books were revealed by Allah or the Quranic term if given by Allah, it was called "revealed". Revelation according to the Quran is not the same as revelation according to the Christian Bible.

While the Christian Bible (there are Torah, the books of Prophets (Nevim), Other Books (Ketuvim), and the books of Apostles. Everything was written by the prophets and the Apostles, unlike the Quran, that the books were given directly by Allah. For example, the book of Isaiah was written by the prophet Isaiah. The Book of Peter was written by the apostle Peter. Jesus was never given or learned from the book or wrote a book. In the Quran (Q. 19:30), the Injeel was given by Allah directly to Isa. (According to the Quran, the Book of Injeel and the Torah are separated). Generally speaking, the Christian INJEEL was written by PROPHETS and APOSTLES.
So based on the way in which the book came from, it is clear that the Torah, the Gospel, and the Zabur that the Qur'an refers to, are not the books that guide Christians.
Thus, where are the books mentioned in the Qur'an? Is there a Quran lying?
Now let's read QS. 4 An-Nisaa: 163.
"We have inspired you, as We had inspired Noah and the prophets after him. And We inspired Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and Jesus, and Job, and Jonah, and Aaron, and Solomon. And We gave David the Psalms."

This means that each of the prophets obtained a book from God. And of course, the same question is: where is the book? Hidden? Who is hiding? What for?
And lastly, the Quran (Qur'an 87: 18-19) also mentions that eternal life is in the earlier books of Moses and the Book of Abraham. This is also a question, do Muslims know, where are the books? Are Muslims not interested in Eternal life? Could it be that Allah Muhammad in the Quran lied?
If the Quran correctly contains the words of Allah why did Allah tell the book to read but did not tell where the books were?
If Muslim brothers cannot answer where the books are, this means you fail to maintain that the QURAN IS THE WORD OF GOD.

If the existence of the books cannot be explained, this also means that 24 prophets before Muhammad were mentioned in the Quran, only a Quranic tale originating from the illusion of Muhammad who cheated on the Bible. And obviously, Muhammad did not know anything about the books of the Torah, the Bible, the Psalms, the Book of Abraham and the other prophets' books.

MUSLIMS ARE WORSHIPING MUHAMMAD

Islam, Religion, Muslims are worshiping Muhammad,Worshiping Muhammad,Muhammad in Islam,Allah vs Muhammad
I find it hilarious that Muslims tell us they don't worship Muhammad. The Islamic sources (isnad) go out of their way to remind us that the creation and even Allah's throne was not made but for him.

al-Hakim in his Mustadrak, Baihaqi in Dalail an-Nubuwah, Tabarani in his Kabeer, Abu Na’eem in his Hilya and ibn Asakir in Tarikh Damishq report from Sayyiduna Ameer al-Mu’mineen 'Umar ibn al-Khattab Farooq al-A’dham (radiyallahu ta'ala anhu) that:

I won't copy paste the whole thing. But if you want the full reference here it is below. The question was possessed like below and the answer was INDEED...

QUESTION: What do the respected ‘Ulama of the religion and Shari’ah say about the hadith:
لولاك لولاك ما خلقت الأفلاك - “Law laaka law laaka maa khalaqtal aflaak”. Which book is this hadith in? Is the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) the reason for the creation or not? Are there other ahadith that support this narration?

Answer: Indeed the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) is the reason for the creation of Adam ‘alaihis salam and the universe. If the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) was not in existence, then the ‘Arsh and Kursi, Lawh and Qalam, the Skies and the Earth, Heaven and Hell, the trees and stones and all other creatures would not exist.

And while the lafdh in question is not considered an authentic wording from the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam), it is, as Mullah al-Qaari said, "Though al-Saghanee says this is mawdu even so I say its meaning is saheeh (authentic) even if it is not a hadith.” Please read about Ibn Taymiyyah and his discussion of the hadith law laaka in Majma` Fataawa Ibn Taymiyyah.

CATHOLIC CHURCH SEXUAL ABUSE

Religion, Christianity, Catholic Church,Catholic Church sexual abuse,Church of the Bible,Catholics for Bible,Pope sexual abuse
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
Americans! You've got to realize Catholicism isn't the church of the bible and they're NOT YOUR FRIENDS! They are here to lead you to hell, and to rape your children!

Founding Fathers on Catholicism

"I have long been decided in opinion that a free government and the Roman Catholic religion can never exist together in any nation or Country." "Liberty and Popery cannot live together." - John Adams 2nd President of the United States

"I do not like the late Resurrection of the Jesuits. They have a General, now in Russia, in correspondence with Jesuits in the U.S. who are more numerous than everybody knows. Shall We not have Swarms of them here? In as many shapes and disguises as ever... In the shape of printers, Editors, Writers, Schoolmasters, etc. If ever any Congregation of men could merit, eternal Perdition on Earth and in Hell... it is this Company of Loyola." - Thomas Jefferson3rd President of the United States

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country — the United States — are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars in Europe."- General Marquis De Lafayette

"All worship of images and saints is an abomination to God; it is idolatry, which is strictly forbidden in the Bible." - American lexicographer and statesman Noah Webster

"I hope that the last day is at the door. Things could not become worse than the Roman see makes it. It suppresses the commandments of God, it exalts its own commandments above God's. If this is not Antichrist, then someone else must tell what it is." - Luther's Reformatory Works," p. 280. Copenhagen: 1883.

Wycliffe the great reformer wrote: “Christ is a truth, the Pope is the principle of falsehood. Christ lived in poverty, the Pope labors for worldly magnificence. Christ refused temporal dominion, the Pope seeks it.”
