I want to tell you about how see things. About God and religion.
One thing history has shown us... God is not a problem. Doesn't matter if you're a Christian, A Jew or Muslim. We have the first and most important thing in common. God. And God is God no matter religion.
God's first command is the the same for ALL of us:
"Thou shall not have no other God before me"
For ages people have faught about religion and everyone claims MINE IS THE ONLY TRUE ONE. People have killed and still do. All in the name of God.
I can't exept that God ever wants us to kill each other. Never.
God is not the problem. The problem is religion. People all over the world are more concerned with religion then the actual relationship with God.
Christians say: Christianity is without a doubt the true path to God.
Jews say the same. And so do Muslims.
Let's never forget. All 3 religions are the same. The same God.
In the Koran ( 5:69 )
He who belive , Jew Christian or convert in 1 God 2 The final day 3 A righteous life has nothing to fear and will not feel sorrow
Take a moment and think about what this really means. I know there can be arguments in all eternity... and That these words conflict others and so on.
But I really believe that this means God is for ALL who belive in him. No more no less.
God cares about your relationship with God. Not if you belive in every word in The Bible or the Koran. Two holy books that's pretty much the same. Only difference is that Koran says Jesus is not the son of God and the Bible says he is.
Both thinks Jesus is a great prophet. End of discussion.
Both books talk about men and women in a way that puts men in control over women. Something I firmly belive is NOT God's word.
Example of word I will never accept as God's words. These are the words of human men.
In the Bible
"I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labour you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you."
1 Corinthians 11:3
"But I would have you know.. that the head of every man is Christ... and The head of the woman is the man"
"Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as unto The Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of church and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their husbands in everything."
"Teach the young women to be obedient to their husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed"
" Your woman is a tilth for you to cultivate so go to your tilth as you please"
"........ and they the women has similar rights as those of men over them in kindness and men are a degree above them."
"Men are in charge of women because Allah had made the one of them to excel the other.....
Good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah has granted. As for those women you fear rebellion from admonish them and banish them to beds apart. and scourge them."
unto The male is the equivalent of two females"
"And tell the women to lower their gaze and be modest.vAnd display only of their adornments only that which is apparent and to draw their veils over their bosoms and not reveal their body save to husbands or fathers, brothers other women slaves or children who know not about women's nakedness....."
Theses are just part of things I will never except comes from God. Never.
In my heart I really feel God loves women and men equal and do not place men in charge over women. Never!
I don't swear myself to any religion. I believe in God and I believe in things said in both the Bible and The Koran. But since both religions are tainted by humans and don't put all humans as equals I follow God not words from humans.
And to honest... Imagine what a beautiful and peaceful world we would have without religion. With just us and God. Religion can be guide but when religion takes over then the state of this world is what we get.
Have my beliefs and I'm 100 % sure I have God with me.
