Very good and interesting overview that points out some truth but I do see some areas that need further elaboration to clarify the underlying truth.

These portions of excerpts stood out clearly to me!

“Later, when pagan, Jewish, and Christian communities were conquered by Muhammad’s armies and refused to convert to Islam, more revelations about jihad appeared in Surah 9:29: “Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam)”

“A permanent political split occurred between Sunnis and Shiites (supporters of Ali) which lasts to this day. Violent clashes and competition for territory and believers broke out, which resulted in the death of Ali’s grandson, Husayn ibn Ali, by the Ummayad Caliph Yazid in 680 in the territory that now comprises Iraq (Armstrong 158-159). Shiites still regard Husayn as a martyr and honor his death every year. Sunnis and Shiites still fight over political leadership and territory. Iran, a Shiite country, remains in conflict with Sunni Saudi Arabia. And the goal to spread Islam around the world is still alive and well.”

Due to these internal conflicts of a tribe like nature that still persist there to me can be no sound judgment as to who is doing the work of God or of the Devil. I believe Muslims are an accursed group both socially and religiously not performing in any Godly manner at all. How many charitable missions are performed or carried out by Iran or any major Islamic powered Nation for that matter in the Middle East; globally during times of need by foreign Nations say the way Christians have and do. Iran exports terrorism using many proxies such as Hezbollah to carry out terrorism and to this day seek to inflict harm upon their imagined enemies with extreme prejudice and hatred only because they are not of the same political and religious ideologies along with hatred that has festered for many centuries. Further the absolute historical evidence, eyewitness accounting and many correlating books of the Bible substantiate who Jesus Christ was and is leaving no doubt that He is the Son of God not just a prophet like say Muhammad claimed to be but contrary to that there is a body of evidence he was a blasphemer of God, heretic, polygamist and child molester.

The violence and call to Jihad within the Muslin religion is unprecedented as for example we do not see such radical behavior among the many denominations of Christians or Jews who are actually despised by many Muslim’s and the leaders of counties like Iran calling for the utter destruction if Israel and the Jewish people.  Here we have a group of religious zealots today in the 21st century going along with beheadings and crucifying of Christian’s in Syrian or Iraq by burning them alive, entire families, so no way will anyone ever change my mind about this religion not having anything to do with peace or a Supreme Being of Love and Justice!

The Crusades of the Middle Ages in Europe was to a good extent a direct result and reaction to the Caliphates encroaching into Europe during the first millennium established to Conquer all these Infidels outside of Islam throughout the European continent so many Christians and Jews!  Many were enslaved, tortured, and burned alive while many assuredly beheaded. Also Muslims have the steadfast belief that lying or deception is fine to accomplish their objectives with anyone especially those they consider enemies or Infidels; ex. The best known being taqiyya the Shia name.  This in circumstances which are usually not always that advance the cause of Islam; in some cases by gaining trust of non-believers in order to entrap them while drawing out their vulnerabilities to defeat them; to me very serpentine like thinking not anything God would condone under any circumstances at all. We Christians do put all of our trust in the Lord and do not have to resort to such evil thinking which is condemned and forbidden in Holy Scriptures; where these people do not trust in their professed God and do!  Such a cult that promotes outright lying and deception and the lopping off of Infidels heads by any of its members whether radicalized or not by any such allowing it unabated as just and appropriate; are not following God almighty; but Satan!

Lord's Prayer (2)

On Christmas Day a few years ago an internet assault by a Muslim man who I had run into on another platform made sure on Christmas Day that he belittled our celebration of Jesus Christ the Savior.  So I had to unload some specific information on him to either set his mind straight if that is possible which I doubt; or let him know he is my sworn enemy and I know it!

Here is the resulting response of that attack.

Victoria, for a couple of days leading up to Christmas and right on Christmas this phony and deceptive guy who was commenting on a post about the two Scandinavian young ladies beheaded kept twisting truth like the Devil to make Jesus nothing more than some guy like Muhammad. His denouncing Jesus and Christianity therefore on Christmas set me off onto my mission, as he would not stop it no matter how many important things I tried to explain to him.  He was a clever deceiver.  He did however stop after this piece I wrote to him on the post!

Aツaz Your own words; “live the way you want and not dictate as you are just a human and not a messenger of GOD, like Jesus and Muhammad were.”  “Muslim hoax” I am wondering how you equate a “hoax” with facts of an Islamic Empire” Wonder NO MORE, Pay attention and learn of your blaspheming error! You have a huge inaccuracy that needs to be corrected! Saying that Jesus is another prophet like Muhammad is blasphemous. First Jesus was not a mere prophet but was God Himself and therefore the Redeemer and Savior of Mankind as he said. Muhammad was only a supposed prophet and there is irrefutable evidence in the historical text of the time he lived that points to his being an outright liar and heretic as well as a criminal and child molester along with his being a polygamist! The following statements are highly accurate and actually proven. “In 632, only months before he died, Muhammad apparently met for the first time with a Christian community as such. An official delegation of Christians, probably led by a bishop, came to Mecca from Najran in Yemen. After engaging the Christians in discussion, the Prophet is said to have realized that Christian teachings are indeed incompatible with Islam, after which the revelation followed that only Islam is acceptable to God as a religion. The Quran also says very specifically that those who refer to Jesus as God are blasphemers, and that Christians saying that Christ is the son of God is an imitation of Jews, who earlier had said that Ezra is the son of God. According to the Quran Jesus was only a servant; Jesus the son of Mary was no more than an apostle of God. Quranic verses dealing with Jesus’ death have been interpreted differently by commentators, but generally they have been taken to mean that Jesus did not die by crucifixion. For Christians the Quran has thus served as a denial of Jesus’ incarnation and death on the cross and of the reality of the Trinity.” (Oxford University Press)

These two points alone put Islam and the Muslims completely at odds with Jesus Christ and all Christians and are the enemies of such! Muhammad himself began this conflict and was the spoiler and Heretic directly attacking God’s plan as foretold by all the previous prophets going all the way back to Abraham. Things have been in conflict because of Muhammad ever since and are getting worse, this will not resolve until Islam is Chastised or obliterated as a fake religion started by a false prophet and therefore heretic! In Summary Muslims are in complete denial of what Jesus Christ said and who He was which makes them Anti-Christ and supportive of the Devil and all that is unholy.

Basically Muhammad started this Blasphemy back in 632 AD and outright declared War on Christendom! Islam you yourself stated is an EMPIRE which puts it in the category of being a Nation not a Religion! It is not a religion that is backed up with solid historical evidence and prophecy over time by many prophets other than what Muhammad said, he made it all up, the heretic! Islam seeks to conquer and must be stopped! And it will be! God’s avenging angels are going to obliterate Islam at the time of the Final Judgment on earth and any of its followers, they are minions of Satan!

After this experience on Christmas day which I never in my entire life had any such blatant Anti-Christ in my face attack, and of all things on Christmas Day activity, tells me that we are in the End Times as Satan is working through all means available at a fever pitch to Attack Christianity and it’s faithful, because the time is drawing near for God, Jesus to return!  Of course I could be off by many years but this is my hunch as there are so many signs and I was attacked by evil several years ago to stop me from being the witness and faithful one that I am for Jesus.  A woman of a Christian order told me back then that there was a reason I was suffering for Jesus and it would become apparent at some point in the future why I was being prepared!  Now I see in retrospect that God did want me to do something for Him and it could be just to be as I am doing or maybe something more, like a priest told me recently, wait and see!

God bless you and may God’s absolute “Light of Truth” shine forth and enlighten many hearts and souls before it is too late! Amen.

What is the Role of the Prophet Muhammad in Islam?

on August 3, 2021

It is impossible to separate the Prophet Muhammad and the Qur’an from Islamic culture, society, politics, and religion. In the Islamic world, the Prophet Muhammad exemplifies the model of the ideal human, and the Qur’an outlines the duties and responsibilities (the rules, so to speak) of Muslim believers.

In the Qur’an, all of life belongs to Allah; and all believers owe their allegiance to Allah above all else (including family, clan, and country). The Prophet Muhammad never claimed to be anything more than a human being and the messenger of Allah. This places all the emphasis on Allah and away from his human representatives on earth.

Over the centuries, the Prophet Muhammad has been mythologized in many ways. A good example of this is the 16th century book, The Path of Muhammad by Sufi mystic Imam Birgivi, which assigned magical and supernatural powers to the Prophet.

But this is a departure from Muhammad’s original intent. The Qur’an clearly states in Surah 9:18 that “the Mosques of Allah shall be maintained only by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day; perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) [daily prayers], and give Zakat [charitable alms] and fear none but Allah. It is they who are on true guidance” (Al-Hilali and Khan, 241). Any believer, therefore, who is sincere in his beliefs and actions can be a religious leader in Islam. Nowadays, however, it is more common for religious scholars to manage mosques and act as imams (religious leaders).

The mosque in my community, for example, was built by a local physician who was also an imam in his native country of Pakistan. He hired a religious scholar from Pakistan to be the full-time manager and imam, but he retains total control over the mosque. His control moderates how far the imam can go in conveying orthodox/unorthodox beliefs to the community. When the imam announced one Friday that all Muslims who do not pray the five daily prayers should be killed (an announcement that shocked this westernized community), his fundamentalism was quickly squashed, and he returned to Pakistan a few months later. As a result of this shocking pronouncement, I suspended my visits to the mosque.

Political power has always been important in Islamic history to protect the Islamic community and spread Islamic beliefs (Esposito 60). Muhammad established the first Islamic political state in Yathrib, which was later called Medina. Many Arabs in the town were open to new ideas (Salahi 183-184) and converted to Islam. But the town was also split by internal disagreements and opposing groups. Eventually, a delegation from the town “invited [the Prophet] to come to Yathrib as arbiter of their disputes and de facto ruler of the town” (Esposito 8-9). Muslims from Mecca migrated to Medina, with Muhammad following them in 622.

The Quraysh in Mecca continued to oppose Muhammad and his followers, which led to more persecution and warfare between the two groups. It is during this time that Muhammad’s first revelations about jihad (holy war) appeared in Surah 2:190-191: “And fight in the way of Allah those who fight you . . . And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out . . . But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers” (Al-Hilali and Khan, 47).

Later, when pagan, Jewish, and Christian communities were conquered by Muhammad’s armies and refused to convert to Islam, more revelations about jihad appeared in Surah 9:29: “Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) until they pay the Jizyah [protection tax levied by the Islamic state] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Al-Hilali and Khan, 243).

By the time of Muhammad’s death in 632, all of western Arabia was under his control (Esposito 10).

Muhammad’s death left a leadership vacuum which led to a major political schism in Islam that still persists today. Passages in the Qur’an can be vague and contradictory – open to many interpretations. And traditional reports of sayings and events attributed to the Prophet (hadith) are not always reliable. Such is the case concerning Muhammad’s successor.

“Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s close friend, was elected by the majority, but some believed that he would have wanted Ali ibn Abi Talib, his cousin and son-in-law, to be his successor (kalipha)” (Armstrong 158). This belief was rooted in the events which reportedly happened at Ghadir Khumm on March 10, 632. While returning from Hajj, the Prophet Muhammad stopped his caravan at Ghadir Khumm and gave one of his last great speeches. He honored his son-in-law, Ali, by saying, “One who has me as his master has Ali as his master” (Tahir-ul-Qadri 17). Muhammad referred to his son-in-law as mawla, which has many meanings but generally translates as “friend” or “helper.” This is how Sunni (mainstream) Muslims interpreted what he meant. But the supporters of Ali interpreted this to mean that the Prophet was giving absolute authority to Ali. A permanent political split occurred between Sunnis and Shiites (supporters of Ali) which lasts to this day. Violent clashes and competition for territory and believers broke out, which resulted in the death of Ali’s grandson, Husayn ibn Ali, by the Ummayad Caliph Yazid in 680 in the territory that now comprises Iraq (Armstrong 158-159). Shiites still regard Husayn as a martyr and honor his death every year. Sunnis and Shiites still fight over political leadership and territory. Iran, a Shiite country, remains in conflict with Sunni Saudi Arabia. And the goal to spread Islam around the world is still alive and well.

The unifying power of Islam, however, is the concept of ummah (community). Every member of the community acts as one body to worship Allah and create a just and equal social order. There is no separation between Allah and the “tribe.” A Muslim’s duty is, therefore, both theological and social, as one evolves from the other.

5 thoughts on “What is the Role of the Prophet Muhammad in Islam?”

  1. I can’t get around the fact that the pandemic looks most like an Islamic attack since many European countries recently passed laws banning face-coverings and with Covid-19 they now require face-coverings. This seems in some way to contradict the solid evidence that it was China, however. I’ve wondered off and on for awhile if Putin isn’t behind many of the Islamic terror attacks, since so many are Russian or Soviet born. Since Russia is staying in Afghanistan with the Taliban, I again wonder.

    Those Muslims who want Sharia law, etc, do sometimes use charity to expand their power, as well as the educational system. (The charities are often a front, too, so sometimes get banned from the US). This is what happened in Algeria. Egypt sent their Muslim Brotherhood members to teach in new Arab language schools, as part of the Arabization program, after Algeria got its independence. The elites and indigenous Berbers of Algeria studied in French so a chasm grew, as well.

    Indigenous Berber activists say that North Africa is not Arab but Arabicised Berbers. St. Augustine was a Romanized Berber from Algeria. Algeria was the breadbasket of the Roman Empire. England, by the way, was populated by a Romanized indigenous population before the arrival of the Germanic Anglo-Saxon (and Jutes).

    After one of the Algerian earthquakes some Islamic Charities came in and helped out where the government failed. The charities used to give free clothing (Islamic garb), which provided a semblance of dignity to the poor women who couldn’t afford the latest French fashion. They married couples who couldn’t afford dowries, etc. They became popular with the poor and got elected. This is probably still the case. The French educated-speaking elites (FLN) got worried and did a military coup and then Algeria suffered a bloody civil war, as those who wanted Sharia law (FIS) fought back. The French speaking elites, practicing a more liberal Islam, were as blind-sided, as the rest of the world. As a French-English bilingual I’m most familiar with this case.

    Also the Red Cross is not allowed to operate in Muslim countries but has to be called the Red Crescent so that Christians don’t get credit for doing good. Islam tended to take over in areas of the world where Christians didn’t believe that Jesus was the literal son of God but the adopted son of God. They were thrown out of the Christian Church in I forget which year — probably ca 300s or 400s. There’s a special term for them too. I have known a lot of good Muslims or Muslim raised, who want the separation of church and state and many are fearful of extremists-sharia law. However, I don’t like that Mohammed put himself up as the equivalent of Jesus and his conquest at the point of a sword (or sometimes taxation) set up a very bad example and we are suffering the consequences. The good “secular” Muslims I have known are from areas which were historically important Christian areas, like North Africa and Turkey. And, there were/are Christians in the governments of the Assads, who are very bad. I struggle with the fact of mean-spirited Near Eastern Christians and kind Muslims. I think that Shi’a Islam has less room for moderation, since it is rule by clerics. I have been told that after the Yugoslavian war that some Middle Eastern countries set up huge mosques in Bosnia and built them over public parks. The traditional Bosnian mosques were much smaller wooden structures. Mohammed only had one wife until his first wife, Kadija, died. She was the first convert to Islam. Many of his subsequent marriages seemed to have been political marriages to establish political control of various tribes.

    Polygamy is one of the things that I hate the most about Islam. It was widespread in Africa, even before Islam. I remember someone telling me he was against polygamy because he saw how his mother suffered.

    I’m sorry to be so long-winded and this is one reason I don’t comment when I want to, because if I say more than a few words I go on and on. I don’t write like this for my blog because I must document everything, though I often say I need to and call it opinion pieces. The long-winded apparently comes from my western Scottish ancestry. We are talkers, not writers.

    Most of your posts really make me think and about the things that matter. And, that lends to me being long-winded.

    1. Very interesting historical and cultural overview of the situation in the general areas of Northern Africa, Middle East and Southern or Western European Areas over the last couple of thousand years! You mentioned here, “The good “secular” Muslims I have known are from areas which were historically important Christian areas, like North Africa and Turkey.” Think of how America has been called the “Great Melting Pot” only for a couple of hundred years, but then consider how such vastly differing cultures or ideologies have since ancient times had to assimilate with one another or sadly conflict and perhaps use lying as a tool to overcome the other guy before he does you!

      From my own not firsthand or direct experience of the overall region that you apparently have along with history study; I can at least say with confidence from my own discernment and study but by more importantly my faith that the leadership over all in Turkey is not good at all, and very brutal or getting worse with Erdogan being more Fundamentalist Muslim now pushing such policy and strategy more than previous times in a fundamentalist intolerant direction, along with the fact that China having massively large ambition of global conquest and control how it would and does look at some of these nations leaders as well peoples, as does Russia also; as useful idiots to do their bidding or even one hand helping the other sort of arrangements to eventually like the snake does to have its prey in its grip, and then slowly crush or choke the life out of it by having total control! I don’t trust anything about the Atheist CCP megalomaniac China leadership just like I don’t Russia with its Putin/communist party, now making energy deals with Germany and the EU only looking to future dominance and control; again like the snake taking the time and opportunity to eventually strangle what it sees as victims or useful idiots!

      For the most part that is all the Muslim nations can be to Russia or China not having any vast weaponry power to use as a bargaining chip, although the last I knew Erdogan in Turkey did have an America NATO stockpile of around 50 nuclear warheads maintained there; though I’ve lost track of what the status is of that dangerous potential problem; the point being it wouldn’t take more than just one nuclear weapon falling into the wrong hands to then use it to trigger a massive regional or even global response along with AI being huge in the Strategic Weapons Systems in place globally; I see a no doubt huge potentiality of something going very wrong or bad very quickly with just a certain nefarious element being engaged in the situation! My point being I don’t see the Muslims over all as a peace-loving and seeking group in that entire region Vis-a-Vis Iran’s overly zealous desire to acquire Nuclear Weapons Capability which I don’t doubt they would use because at some point leadership such as the narrow minded ideological Ayatollah or Mullahs, would take the opportunity to destroy Israel! I see a clear cut defect in the Muslim religion or let’s say it “invites racialism and eventual hatred” that festers to levels that are diabolical as we all have seen in the last couple of decades, that the Muslims themselves don’t seem too concerned enough in putting an end to such horrific thinking and indoctrination; and with splinter groups and especially now again the Taliban resuming its old stature of dominance in Afghanistan in the ready to prepare camps for training Jihadists; which can and will absolutely only spell trouble and more hostilities to brew throughout the entire region. My point is things are not going to improve or ever reach a satisfactory balance of those nations all collectively seeing eye to eye or work toward a common goal of peaceful coexistence! Why, because what we are talking here is many different human beings all having very differing ideological and religious views on who should be in charge and seek dominance over all others! The two superpowers Russia and China are looking to gain utter control at some point in the near future as I see it but all of these other factors but especially like Syrian’s Assad and Erdogan of Turkey are serious wild cards that will absolutely play into the building coming conflict, with of course the EU and all of its members needing at some point to assert and defend themselves against any massive plans being pushed down their throats. Israel or the Jews won’t and shouldn’t roll over either, so they I believe will always be in the ready to defend themselves against any such developments as they occur.

      Just to try wrapping this up for now, because I like you can be a definite talker although I try not to bore people; it has to be my Italian ancestry because some of my kin were great talkers and businessmen, lawyers and even politicians going back over the centuries. But, my main thrust or hopeful purpose in talking about this is to get back to Jesus Christ, who I have no doubt at all is absolutely who He claimed to be, and the mountain of evidence along with the uniformity of all the Holy Scriptures gives us much certainty that what happened with His birth and death being “the most unprecedented and profound event” in all the history of mankind, while prophecy is also real; and these factors give plenty of reason and opportunity for anyone who cares or wants to discern TRUTH, to not use lies to trick others as Muslims do and others like the Russians or China’s CCP; I’ll bank on the Truth of Jesus hands down any day of the week on all of what Jesus Christ told us, over anything these failed humans or any modern technology and science try to tell us otherwise! The obvious thing to me is how stupid or foolish, arrogant and blind to the Truth so many people are, even with so much exposure of the facts and historical record being discerned and supported now; yet so many turn from Truth and prefer Hate or Darkness more while pushing their own failed human agendas to do harm to others and have control over everyone they can! That is pure evil and comes from Satan; this is all so obvious to me and I wish multitudes of other humans could see things as I do; but sadly too many do not!

      A giant storm is brewing and it will strike upon humanity like nothing this world has ever seen before! The bullshit stories and arguments are hopeless and have festered far too long; causing more divisiveness not any unity and love which in and of itself demonstrates just how flawed and hopeless the human race is left to its own devices and this goes along with all the Biblical teachings or record! This is all a battle between Good and Evil, Heaven and Hell. Each of us has to decide which do we genuinely really want to be spending our eternity in, “Live by the Sword and Die by the Sword;” which is sadly exactly what the world has done far too long and is still looking to do going forward!

      Jesus Christ is the only Human who actually is God; to have shown the world what the answer to all of this is, not Muhammad or any modern day leaders and or men of science! This is all Vanity and will not bring us to the Promised Land or Eternal Peace; that is something only God can provide and will to those that believe His Son Jesus Christ!

      For now I want to leave this link to one of my recent Essays to give a bit more definition and clarity to what the Bottom Line is and must be. Thank you for the great descriptive overview and personal accounting here! God bless you and yours! Amen.

      Also something that just came to me via another blogger that speaks to Global Agendas in play currently does have some relevance about this subject matter because it discusses the lies, cover-ups and games that are being perpetrated on a global scale now and a bit about how this is happening with ultimate power being the game and money being the biggest tool along with Fear of death winning out over seeking righteousness by so many people who should! I’ve listened to Dr. Zelenko before but having a new look got me thinking about a few points I had overlooked!

      1. Thank you. Just to clarify, the nice Turkish people to whom I was referring agree with you on Erdogan and live in Europe and fear returning home even to visit. They fear Sharia law being imposed within Europe. And, many of the secular or mixed ancestry North Africans have had to flee too. When I say good, I mean that they are the types that would give the shirts off their own back to help you. Some have turned against religion because of Islam. I still need to carefully read your response, but wanted to make that clear.

      2. Perfect my Brother! Oh yes indeed I’ve met Turkish people over many years and some were just as you say I know they were sincere but like many Nations, not just Muslim leaders ruin everything sometimes; evil works through its cohorts and minions and who better to make one than a powerful leader!

        We have that freaking problem big time here now as you can plainly see I’m sure! Biden is a 50 years of high crime political figure who should have been locked away long ago! Lies are what he is about, evil too! Biden doesn’t care about anyone except himself drunk in his power and pride! Even Jesus was tempted by the Devil so we know Biden was and went along with his plan; now he is a possessed man and soul; doomed! Never worked an honest day in his adult life!

        Being quite frank about it; what bothers me is how Muslims for the most part should see all of this ruin within their history and fraudulent faith, so to me the wake-up call came long ago and why do they allow more perpetuation of a falsehood and lies!! No doubts some are misguided and brainwashed while others are afraid to break away from tradition in their respective societies and become an outcast or worse a target!

        But, it would be so good if many could and would awaken to the Truth that Jesus Christ has provided for all people. I’ve seen actual transformation of some Muslim women to Christianity and they love Jesus so much. One said she never knew what love really is, how this Jesus is about love and she grew up with anger or even hate, not a calm peace full of love toward one another the way she is living here in the US now! She had a miracle because before this change came evil spirits tormented her for years! Her personal story and journey as she tells it brings tears to anyone with a heart that loves!
        Peace Brother!

      3. We have stood by and allowed Christianity to be purged from the MENA (Middle East-North Africa) countries – gradually, but with punctuated moments. However, everything you point to is also the case: it is also a power play by leaders big and small, the only religion available to console the poor, and most importantly there is the threats and fear, especially for women. I was told that many of the veiled women that one sees around Europe (and probably the US) dress that way because of fear of spies from their countries of origin. I would never call Islam or Judaism religions of peace. However, there are many peaceful and kind Muslims. To me, Islam and Judaism are vindictive and many people want their vengeance – they don’t want to leave justice to God. The Bible says that vengeance is God’s alone. As the only religion of peace, Christians are at a disadvantage – really a suicidal disadvantage. You see what happened to Jesus. The good news is that since Jesus is important in Islam that Christianity can reemerge and perhaps it already has. We need to pray that this is the case. Maybe the peaceful Muslims are really Christians under the name of Muslims. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_in_Islam I worry more about mean-spirited nominal Christians, however. You know that most of Irish and Scottish history is very sad, and their problems created by fighting amongst themselves, which is why they were taken over and destroyed. This internecine squabbling over power and resources and favoring outsiders over our own people is why America is in trouble. I think the only time when it was good to be alive, contrary to popular opinion, was in an inland monastery from ca 600-1200. The talkativeness of western Scots, like many of my ancestors, is apparently because they were hand-loom weavers and they were able to talk and debate while they worked the looms. I know that my great-great-great grandfather was a Scottish weaver who apparently participated in the 1820 weaver’s risings (strikes-protests) and became an Irish weaver. Thanks for the links. I did see this doctor testify before a committee of rabbis. I also understand more why when I read you I often think that I am reading contemporary Pauline Epistles.
