Listening for the Language of Peace

As-Salaam Aliakum.

It is not because some lunatics or some power horny people want to get their lust for power fulfilled and therefore use terror to achieve their goal, that a full community has to be penalised with the idea that all Muslims would agree with what ISIS or Al Qaeda is doing.

As in Christendom not at all Muslims look op with owe to those ‘crusaders‘ who misuse the name of Allah.

Many Muslims are moderate believers who honour Allah, trying to live according to His Laws and who do know that lovers of Allah have to respect the creatures He allows to live on this earth. They also know that sharing the love is a much mightier weapon than the man-made weapons which literally kill, but never can kill the connection with the Most High divine Creator, when a person has an intimate relation with the God of gods.

Jews, Christians and Muslims who love God should show to others that Allah is a God of love. They too, who know they are created by the Most High Almighty God, should share the love God wants us to bring forth to all around us, so that we can conquer them by our love, the Sword of God, and not by the sword of man.

To remember

  • often heard Muslim greeting “As-Salaam Aliakum” = Peace Be Unto You! > in a world that doesn’t understand the language of peace
  • Wa-Aliakum Salaam = shared in response
  • barber Mo = devoted Muslim + highly intelligent + deeply peace giving spiritual man
  • online activities of typed out words, posted banners, shared videos profess a great divide between our brother and us… our sister… according to way we dress, worship, or seek meaning and purpose
  • language of a person of peace = not to have a linguistic barrier restricting from culture, religion, our nationality
  • language of peace = built upon power + significance of our relationships to the other = language of communal embrace!

Just Wondering...

Peace and IslamAs-Salaam Aliakum. So often I think we hear these words today and the hairs on the back of our necks rise as images from Paris, Syria, and Iraq flash in our minds. Is this not a Muslim greeting?!

Wa-Aliakum Salaam. I hear it shared in response while I sit in the barber’s chair at my local neighborhood men’s barber shop. Mo has cut my hair for the last 6 years and we have developed an amazing relationship. We’ve spoke about his family, his kids and there schooling, his 5-year-old son (now 8 years old) who is dealing with Leukemia. I passed along comfort and gave financially to his family while I told him of my prayers for him when he went through a massive heart attack a little over a year ago. And yes, we have deep discussions about faith, Jesus, and the stories of scripture both in the Bible…

In Defense of the truth

Like the former Christian minister, writer, musician says “You can lead a horse to water, but sometimes you just have to drown them.” (or something like that) we should remember that it is important how we want to use our mind and find or bring logic and reason to the forefront of the place where we live and in our conversations with those around us.

Facing the difficulties in life we are always surrounded with many questions and most of us are looking for what we call”the Truth“.

In that quest for Truth most people are also confronted with religions and with ministers who work for certain denominations. Their attitude, their response to the many questions, often shall take the questioning person to take his or her next steps and shall bring on an attitude for the future.

We can not deny that probably “every single pastor (and pastor’s wife), every evangelist, every church planter and self described theologian” that has come certain persons their way over the past few years may have “slithered away like a de-fanged, de-rattled snake, back into the night where they came from.” Is that not a shame?

Have those ministers or priests had to go in the darkness again because they could not explain what really happened in the garden of Eden? Was it not because they could not show the writer of this reblogged text that there is not such thing as “a child murdering, rape endorsing, slavery promoting deity”?

God is a god of love. Out of love He has given the right for the people who took adversary on Him to rule the world and to arrange the things themselves. Though now they want to blame Him because He does not play the dictator and interferes, making everything like He wants it to be.

We may not forget that it is not God who is the cause of all those diseases and disasters which hit the world. He is not ruling this world. It are the adversaries of God (Satan) who are ruling this world now.

We just have to be patient enough until the third World War and the thousand years afterwards. Only then, after Jesus his return and the fulfilment of the promise of the Great Reality of the renewed Israel and the handing over by Jesus of the Kingdom of God to God, those who had their faith in this hope of Unity and Peace and did everything to live according to the Laws of Christ and the Law of God, shall be able to enter that Kingdom of God and enjoy a world without pain and without difficulties.

  • Labor Pains of Human Life (prayersofmysoul.wordpress.com)
    Nothing can permanently interfere with God’s plans and purposes. The delay in putting an end to our grief is not proof that destructive forces are conquering God. Nor is it due to an uncaring attitude of God. He uses it all – the good and the bad, the angels and the demons, the easy-going days and the hard times – to bring salvation to untold numbers of people.
  • *The purpose of our lives of faith* (correctunderstandingofshinchonji.wordpress.com)
    The world is full of religious scholars, but what do they study? Supposedly, they are studying the true will of God and the true meaning of the Bible. Which of them, then, knows the true will of God? The truth is that none of them know it. They study the Bible because they do not know. Only God knows his true will, and God does not reveal this mystery until the time he has appointed arrives (Eccl 3:1; Dn 12:8-9; Jn 16:25).
  • On Hope (storiedwithgrace.com)
    how we can’t hope in ourselves or in anything in this world, only in Jesus, His Word, His Kingdom Everlasting. The pastor said if I hope in “having it all together” here on earth—a life of total freedom, without trouble or persecution or any harm, then I’m hoping in the wrong thing. That hope is not possible, for as the pastor pointed out, as a Christian, I am bound to suffer, in some measure as Christ suffered.
    +
    What is the proper attitude to have, then, in whatever caliber of suffering I endure? It’s to be totally optimistic. Totally hopeful. Always thinking good thoughts. Maintaining ultimate self-control. Embracing the ones who hurt you. Enjoying the experience. Being patient when there is no way out, when you are truly doomed. Believing in the unseen, no matter how impossible. Having faith that you’ll breathe again, even when blood is clotting in your lungs. Loving. Simply loving. Jesus revealed all of these traits while suffering on the cross. He did so at so great a cost. He wagered Himself, and all His character, for His enemies, who had none. It is sobering to consider my Savior’s attitude when He held His arms out for me as I butchered Him.
  • Reflecting on Suffering (barefootpreachr.org)
    Did you hear the story of the little boy that wanted to share in Christ’s suffering? One Sunday he heard the preacher talking about Jesus’ walk to Golgotha. And he heard how Jesus’ walked the streets of stone. And he heard about the man who helped Jesus. Then the little boy went home and began to think. The next morning he picked up a small pebble (he WAS a small boy) and he put it in his shoe so that he too could walk with Jesus. Well, that story ends something like this: “And little Johnny walked for miles that day with that pebble in his shoe and he did it for God.”
  • “Sanctify them in Truth” (disciplesforlife.wordpress.com)
    Christians are to be in the world (vs. 18) yet not of the world (vs. 16). In this way our mission is like Christ’s (vs. 18) who was sent into the world by the Father.
  • 400 people in a plane – how many will enter the Kingdom of Heaven? (allanblog.me)
    I wondered, how many of these people would actually be interested in knowing how someone can get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Especially if I told them the truth. You know, the price they need to pay. Dying to themselves, and allowing Jesus Christ to be their Lord and Master of their lives. No longer doing what they want to do, but what He wants to do in them and through them.
    +
    400 people on the plane. How will I go about trying to get them to listen, to what most people would say is, ridiculous, fanatical, asking too much?
  • Religulous Freaks (venitism.blogspot.com)
    Every week, Ulster Christians flock from across the province to the 3,000-seater auditorium, there to hear Pastor James McConnell preach his Christian message. Not the Christian message of the BBC’s Thought For The Day, however; you may hear Beatitudes at Whitewell, but it’s not a place for platitudes. This is the real deal, fire and brimstone; damnation and salvation. If you’re not going to Whitewell, you’re going to Hell.
    +
    In an interview with the BBC’s Stephen Nolan, McConnell refused to back down, claiming that all Muslims had a duty to impose Sharia law on the world, and suggesting they were all merely waiting for a signal to go to Holy War. A subtle examination of modern Islamist and jihadist politics this was not.
  • Towards a Safer and a More Secure World (politicsfromthemiddle.com)
    The truth is that not all problems in the world can be solved. A requirement for peace is to have at least two willing parties who are willing to talk when a conflict is pending or when two parties are in active combat.
  • The Beginning of Truth…. Chandler’s Story (branditrent3.wordpress.com)
    There have been times that we felt like we could not get up and go on. And, yes. I have been rescued. In fact, I am rescued every, single day. I have had to learn to rely on God. I have had to set my hope in Him. And, you have played a significant role in this for us. Your prayers. They have protected us. The prayers have led us to put our trust in God and His ways. Not our own.
  • Twelve Leadership Lessons from a Hike with a Fellow Leader (Part IV) (hikerdude.wordpress.com)
    As Pastor Todd and I talked while we walked along the trail, he shared some of the things that had greeted him at the threshold of his 50th birthday: the sickness and death of his father, his mother’s brain cancer and recent death, and diagnosis of his executive pastor with stage 4 lung cancer. And just a few years earlier he had lost much of his retirement savings during the “economic downturn,” even though he had invested heavily in bank stocks, which had been thought to be one of the safest, most secure investments. Then, both is daughters had gotten married within six months of each other (joyous, yet stressful events). All of this was going on as he was leading one of the largest churches in West Georgia. It would have made him want to pull his hair out, if he had any left to do so.

Center For Reason

I like to argue. Anyone who knows me at all knows that I will debate anyone but what I really enjoy is a good argument where I don’t have to be polite or patient and I especially enjoy arguing with pious self righteous bigots who have made a career of selling heaven for profit like monopoly real estate.

So I woke up this morning like usual around 5 am. And like usual I reached for my phone to check my Facebook and Twitter accounts for comments.

I saw a couple of posts from friends a few conversations were going on about science and reason but today there were no heated arguments or comments from professional fucktardery profiteers offering prayers for my soul or proposing to change my mind about evolution or show me the error of my apostate heart and being me back to the feet of jesus at the…
