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.
St. Paul, who had been a Pharisee, often bores Christians who do not know what he was arguing about, in his discourses haranguing Pharisees. But one familiar with the Talmud can appreciate his diatribe against the "uncleanness" of those, "Who changed the truth of God into a lie" and: "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools," until "God gave them over to a reprobate mind ... . Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness ... ." (Romans 1:22, 25, 28).
Pt 1– ‘Our man in the Vatican’
At a time when organized Jewish interests worldwide are in perpetual screech mode over the fact there isn’t quite enough war, lawlessness, and human suffering, it’s a bad sign—bad sign indeed–when these same interests gather to sing the praises of a new Pope, said to represent the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.
Did we say ‘singing the praises’ of a new Pope? Our apologies then for short-changing the reader. It—the reaction on the part of organized Jewish interests to the election of one Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio–has been nothing less than a quiet riot of sorts, or at least mildly Purimesque.
This is a backgrounder of the struggle in Tibet and how the US has been building up Dalai Lama to pursue their ideological struggle. In the US many uninformed people had been awed by his philosophy on "peace" and "non-violence". This article will bare facts to the real color and intent of the Lama, why the US had given him a Nobel Prize and many more. - Kalovski Itim, The True Story of Maoist Revolution in Tibet, When the Dalai Lamas Ruled: Hell on Earth.
Hard Climate, Heartless Society
Tibet is one of the most remote places in the world. It is centered on a high mountain plateau deep in the heart of Asia. It is cut off from South Asia by the Himalayas, the highest mountains in the world. Countless river gorges and at least six different mountain ranges carve this region into isolated valleys. Before all the changes brought about after the Chinese revolution of 1949, there were no roads in Tibet that wheeled vehicles could travel. All travel was over winding, dangerous mountain trails by mule, by foot or by yaks which are hairy cow-like mountain animals. Trade, communications and centralized government were almost impossible to maintain.
When we study religions, comparing them, we find that part of the world has believed in reincarnation, but most of the world has not held this belief. Krishna, Shiva, and Buddha are said to have taught the doctrine of reincarnation; Moses, Christ, and Muhammad have said nothing about it. This divides religions into two groups; but when we make a deeper study we see that we can combine the two, for the tendency of the Sufi is rather to unite than to differ.
There are four widely spread religions, Brahminism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, which have great influence upon humanity through their diffusion. Let us ask each what it has to say on the matter.
Islam is silent on this subject; Christianity says nothing. In their scriptures if there may rarely be a verse which supports this idea, there will be ten verses which disprove it.
Let us now consider Brahminism. There are four grades of Brahmins: Brahmachari, Grihasta, Vanaprasti, and Sanyasi. The three lower grades will perhaps answer, 'Yes, there is reincarnation, but it depends upon our Karma, our actions. If we, who are men, behave like animals; we may come again as animals; we may be a cow or a dog or a cat, or else we may be a human being of a lower order than we are now; and if we live a righteous life we shall find ourselves in a better condition in our next incarnation.' When we ask the highest authority among Hindus, the Sanyasi, he will say, 'You will perhaps reincarnate, I shall not. I am Jivan Mukta, free; I am above the cycle of births and deaths.'
