Where Religions Differ
Comparative religion looks at what each religion teaches on important subjects directly from their religious books. Clear statements from the Qur’an, Bible, Talmud and other religious books are presented so that the reader can judge for themselves what the true message is from each holy book regarding issues of importance to all human beings. Historical actions taken in the name of these religions are also examined. The attacks against Al-Islam are defended by direct comparisons between what Al-Islam teaches and Muslims practice versus the teachings and practices in Christianity, Judaism and other religions.
This section addresses areas where religion differ. It is believed that rather than the univesal message of oneness from our Creator, the areas of difference represents the influence of human beings on our Creator's divine words.
The French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, wrote Democracy in America when he traveled here in the first third of the 19th Century. In ringing tones he sang the praises of America’s invulnerable strength and spirit. He attributed its greatness to its citizens’ sense of morality… even with the abundant church attendances he observed in America. De Tocqueville wrote in French and is credited with this familiar quote: America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.
Sometimes it seems like there are only two major religions left: Holocaustism and Islam.
According to Gilad Atzmon, "The Israeli Philosophy professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz was probably the first to define the holocaust as the ‘new Jewish religion.’”
But as the persecution of Bishop Williamson makes clear, Holocaustism has replaced Christianity as well as Judaism. You can tell which story is sacred and which one isn't by the reaction you get when you commit sacrilege.
They seek to gain control of your mind, for with that, they will rule you in all things. One of the great fortresses of the mind, which they must capture if they are to change your destiny, is your religion.
I want to point out a few things in the scripture to show you how you are being robbed of real scriptural teaching. Genesis says, "Let there be light." The church will not tell you that this scripture means, "Let there be knowledge in the heads of the people." They teach you to think that God's first order was that man should strive for spiritualism, when it really means that man should strive for knowledge. The first commandment of God is to let the brain grow in intelligence and to let the head be lit with light. This is the first commandment because if there is no light in the head, what can we expect from the body? The head has to rule over the body.
In the church's history it has persecuted education and educators. This is what brought on the Renaissance in Europe and the movement of the enlightened people against the leadership of the church. We would not have free education in public schools today if there had not been an uprising to overthrow church leadership. This is a clear fact in history that tells us that the church did not obey the first letter of the Bible. The early Christian leaders knew that they were limited in knowledge, so they felt that the only way to keep themselves on the throne of power was to keep knowledge from the majority of the people.
I know that to many sincere Muslims, Christians and people of other faiths, reading false reports and misrepresentations about their religion by others is very disappointing. Even to people who are non-religious. Reading or hearing a statement about your nation, organization or group that is far from the truth is very disheartening. The simple question that comes to mind is why can't just the simple truth be told? Why do people have to lie, falsify and present half truths?
In the mainstream media, on the Internet and many other places, lies are continually being told about the religion of Islam. The natural question that comes to mind is why. Why are fabrications continually being propagated about the religion of Islam? Why can't the people responsible for the fabrications just simply tell the truth?
