An Instant World View Just for You! Now in New Meme Size!

Tom Luth[shared meme] Oh dear, and yet...

Harry Marks - Unfortunately, it will never happen.

Janet Valentine - It could, if people would open up their minds and realize that religion is mythology, and we don't kill one another over the antics of Thor or Loki or Gilgamesh? Do we?

Tom Luth - They might kill you for suggesting their one true religion is mythology.

Muhammad Rasheed - I don't think it's open-minded to 'realize" the One God is a mythology. An open mind would recognize that the message of the One God has endured throughout the ages, encompassed by numerous religions that, in their essence, say the same thing. The open mind would recognize that the One God is the only deity to address mankind directly, tell mankind exactly who He is, and instruct them on what they need in order to prosper. The false mythological deities conspicuously lack such a message.

Muhammad Rasheed - The most dangerous people are folk like this Betty Bowers, who actually think you can pull one sentence out of a 1,000 page book and understand the whole message in context. Is that not the exact same nonsense that other extremists routinely perform?

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: "Yours says to kill me! - Qur'an 2:191"

Full message: Qur'an 2:190-193
190 Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.

191 And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

192 But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: "Yours says I'm going to burn in hell! - Qur'an 4:115

Full message: Qur'an 4:113-116
113 But for the Grace of Allah to thee and his Mercy, a party of them would certainly have plotted to lead thee astray. But (in fact) they will only Lead their own souls astray, and to thee they can do no harm in the least. For Allah hath sent down to thee the Book and wisdom and taught thee what thou Knewest not (before): And great is the Grace of Allah unto thee.

114 In most of their secret talks there is no good: But if one exhorts to a deed of charity or justice or conciliation between men, (Secrecy is permissible): To him who does this, seeking the good pleasure of Allah, We shall soon give a reward of the highest (value).

115 If anyone contends with the Messenger even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him, and follows a path other than that becoming to men of Faith, We shall leave him in the path he has chosen, and land him in Hell,- what an evil refuge!

116 Allah forgiveth not (The sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods with Allah, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right).

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: “Your Mohammed says I’m dirty loser! Qur’an 3:110/2:121”

Full message: Qur’an 3:110-117
110 Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.

111 They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; if they come out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help shall they get.

112 Shame is pitched over them (Like a tent) wherever they are found, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah and from men; they draw on themselves wrath from Allah, and pitched over them is (the tent of) destitution. This because they rejected the Signs of Allah, and slew the prophets in defiance of right; this because they rebelled and transgressed beyond bounds.

113 Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of Allah all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration.

114 They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.

115 Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knoweth well those that do right.

116 Those who reject Faith,- neither their possessions nor their (numerous) progeny will avail them aught against Allah: They will be companions of the Fire,-dwelling therein (for ever).

117 What they spend in the life of this (material) world May be likened to a wind which brings a nipping frost: It strikes and destroys the harvest of men who have wronged their own souls: it is not Allah that hath wronged them, but they wrong themselves.

Full message: Qur’an 2:116-123
116 They say: "Allah hath begotten a son": Glory be to Him.-Nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: everything renders worship to Him.

117 To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: When He decreeth a matter, He saith to it: "Be," and it is.

118 Say those without knowledge: "Why speaketh not Allah unto us? or why cometh not unto us a Sign?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike. We have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith (in their hearts).

119 Verily We have sent thee in truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner: But of thee no question shall be asked of the Companions of the Blazing Fire.

120 Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: "The Guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance." Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah.

121 Those to whom We have sent the Book study it as it should be studied: They are the ones that believe therein: Those who reject faith therein,- the loss is their own.

122 O Children of Israel! call to mind the special favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all others (for My Message).

123 Then guard yourselves against a Day when one soul shall not avail another, nor shall compensation be accepted from her nor shall intercession profit her nor shall anyone be helped (from outside).

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: “Yours says to stone me! - Deuteronomy 13:6-10”

Full message:
6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
7 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
10 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

So how is a believer in the One God of Abraham telling another believer in the One God of Abraham to “serve other gods?” Did this Betty Bowers even bother to read that passage, or was she just willy-nilly shotgunning it, knowing no one would bother to check up on this stuff, but just blindly swallow it as is?

Tom Luth - It is just a meme, a launching point for consideration, or perhaps a discussion. I would trust that anyone curious of the cited scriptures would google them, as I had, and reach their own conclusions.

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: “So does yours! – Revelation 2:18”

Full message – Revelation 2:18-29
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

This one is saying that if you follow the way of God and keep His works you will be saved, but if you give in to the temptations of the evil one, you will fail. How is this supposed to be a special admonishment to the Muslims from the Christian book?

Muhammad Rasheed - Meme wrote: “Your Jesus says I’m a dog! – Matthew 15:26”

Full message: Matthew 15:22-30
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

These verses reveal a Jesus figure who was reluctant to stray outside of the bounds of his strict mission to the children of Israel; specifically to soften their hard-hearted “eye for an eye” doctrine and instruct them in performing mercy. The messages of all the prophets except Muhammad (peace be upon them all) were local messages, while the Qur’an was sent as the universal message to mankind.

Muhammad Rasheed - "Deven Green (born January 31) is a comedian, performer, and musician. Green is known for her video comedy parodies, including her performance as the satirical character Mrs. Betty Bowers, 'America's Best Christian.'"

Oh. Now it makes sense. Especially the slip-shod scholarship part.

Sumako Artist - I like this MEME...a lot! I hope it gets around more. Good findTom!

Muhammad Rasheed - lol
