  1. Salam LeftCoastMom, True. However, it's interesting how some Protestant leaders were at first complicit with Hitler's schemes and then later realized how murderous his schemes were, when it was too late to help many people. For example, this famous quote is from a Protestant leader, Martin Niemöller: (I boldened some.) "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me." https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007392 He was an anti-Jewish for a time, but he didn't realize how horrible that was till later: In his book Über die deutsche Schuld, Not und Hoffnung (published in English as Of Guilt and Hope)—which appeared in January 1946—Niemöller wrote: "Thus, whenever I chance to meet a Jew known to me before, then, as a Christian, I cannot but tell him: 'Dear Friend, I stand in front of you, but we can not get together, for there is guilt between us. I have sinned and my people has sinned against thy people and against thyself.'" Aye. . Thank God that the KKK are known as a hate group and violence from the KKK people against other people won't be tolerated!!! (I hope that never changes!!!) Thank God many people in the USA understand that God created all people equal, regardless of their differences, thanks to the Civil Rights Movement!!! Peace and God bless you
  2. Salam E.L King, Aye. That's the shahadah.. Understood. However, I wish they would stop killing each other for having "deviant" views. Thanks for answering my question!!! Peace and God bless you
  3. Salam, May God comfort those who lost loved ones, and help the injured heal. May God give wisdom to the medical people helping the injured, and wisdom to the authorities. Peace and God bless you
  4. Salam Marbles, There are many white supremacists (including in the KKK) who actually want Muslims to fight them, because that will give them the excuse they want to be violent. They know they have an easier case to make if they are "defending" themselves. In some courts and areas, defending oneself with violence is "ok" even though it has been used to justify murder many times. The KKK by the way are having a field day with the attack in England, which they are using to justify banning Muslims. Peace and God bless you
  5. Salam DigitalUmmah, If you read Corrie ten Boom's autobiography, The Hiding Place, you might find some ideas for secret rooms. Corrie, her father, and her sister hid Jewish people in a secret room in her house, which kept them safe for a time from the Nazis. Granted, the technology of government authorities today is much more advanced than in Corrie's time, so that will have to be taken into consideration as well. Also, don't count out the importance of Non-Muslim friends in helping provide protection and necessary items (such as food, bedding, medicine, and so forth) for Muslims. During the Armenian genocide , some Armenians survived thanks to the protection of caring Muslim neighbors. Peace and God bless you
  6. Salam LeftCoastMom, Aye, I don't believe in transubstantiation. I do believe in the "Lord's supper" as being an important symbol/metaphor that Jesus commanded his followers to do. However, I don't believe that anybody is drinking/eating the actual blood/body of Christ, nope. Lol that's funny!!! Aye, and I think there is merit to that. While you know I don't agree with the popes in everything, I do appreciate their apologies for the actions of popes who lived a long time ago - even though I know those actions were not their fault. Definitely, most Catholics today don't hurt people who believe differently than they do!!! Well, there are disobedient and obedient Christians. What mainly hurts other people (and Christianity) is the disobedience of Christians to Jesus Christ's commands to love. Peace and God bless you
  7. Salam LeftCoastMom, It's possible that Jesus spoke Hebrew too. In the Messianic synagogues my hubby and I have visited, the people used Hebrew and English together: always translating the Hebrew into English for non-Hebrew speakers. Yep. It shows how God has a sense of humor how He used Paul, an ex-Pharisee, to stand up for Gentiles following Yeshua (Jesus)!!! (I boldened some.) Certain people came down from Judea to Antioch and were teaching the believers: “Unless you are circumcised, according to the custom taught by Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2 This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them. So Paul and Barnabas were appointed, along with some other believers, to go up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this question. 3 The church sent them on their way, and as they traveled through Phoenicia and Samaria, they told how the Gentiles had been converted. This news made all the believers very glad. 4 When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and elders, to whom they reported everything God had done through them. - Acts 15:1-4 (NIV) It's a good thing that God gave Peter the vision which helped him understand that Gentiles are "clean" (Acts 10:1-48) too! Then some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said, “The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to keep the law of Moses.” The apostles and elders met to consider this question. 7 After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. 8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. 9 He did not discriminate between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith. 10 Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of Gentiles a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors have been able to bear? 11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.” - Acts 15:5-11 (NIV) Peace and God bless you
  8. Thanks. I'm sorry I cut it down into sections. The thing is, sometimes I take too long to answer and then I have to sign in again, and I lose what I wrote sigh. Amen! And may God convict bad people to repent and to become good via His amazing grace, love, and mercy!!! Peace and God bless you!
  9. Ok, here's my problem with this. It seems every group that identifies as Muslims says another group that identifies as Muslims are "not Muslims." Some Sunni Muslims say that Shia Muslims are "not true Muslims" Should I believe them? What makes you right and them wrong? This is my definition of who = Muslim: 1. A person who believes that Muhammad is a true prophet. 2. A person who believe the Qur'an is truly from Allah. To me, both 1 and 2 qualify as a person being a Muslim. So, why do you think that the Sunni Muslims who invaded the Byzantine Empire, the Persian Empire (which interestingly is known as Shia territory), and Europe are "not Muslims"? To me, that's like how some Sunnis say Shias are "not true Muslims"
  10. Jesus did not want to fight, because he was busy fulfilling Isaiah 53, including the following verses: But he was wounded because of our transgressions, he was crushed because of our iniquities: the chastisement of our welfare was upon him, and with his stripes we were healed. - Isaiah 53:5 http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt1053.htm and By oppression and judgment he was taken away, and with his generation who did reason? for he was cut off out of the land of the living, for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due. - Isaiah 53:8 http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt1053.htm By the way, 2 Jewish ladies I know accepted Yeshua (Jesus) as the Mashiach (Christ/Anointed One) due to Isaiah 53. They don't accept the teachings of other Jewish people who reject Yeshua. One of these ladies was formerly from Reform Judaism. Another of the ladies was from an Agnostic Jewish family who rejected Orthodox Judaism. Jesus (Yeshua) will indeed fight when he returns. However, he has not returned yet. Out of curiosity, do you believe he will fight his own people the Jews, or do you think he will fight the enemies of the Jews, as the Tanakh says the Anointed One will do?
  11. Like I mentioned before, I've never heard Protestants defend the Crusades until recently. And yeah, you're right; the Muslim invaders were Sunni Muslims, not Shia Muslims. Christians in Christian-dominated countries long time ago faced Sunni Muslim invasions. Some of those formerly Christian-dominated countries are now Muslim-dominated countries, and the Western world is remembering that now. The Western world however is no longer Christian-dominated. Christians relinquished control because of freedom of religion, which I personally think is good, cause Christians have persecuted other people thanks to trying to control what people believe. I don't agree. Jesus wanted to fulfill the prophecy that he would be "numbered with the transgressors". That's why he said 2 swords are enough. Jesus knew that the New Covenant adds Gentiles. If Jewish people killed Gentiles, do you think that helps Gentiles follow the Jewish Messiah? Nope. Jesus is the light and salvation to both Jews and Gentiles: (I boldened some below.) And now saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, and that Israel be gathered unto Him--for I am honourable in the eyes of the LORD, and my God is become my strength-- Yea, He saith: 'It is too light a thing that thou shouldest be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the offspring of Israel; I will also give thee for a light of the nations, that My salvation may be unto the end of the earth.' - Isaiah 49:5-6 http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt1049.htm
  12. Wasalam 313 Seeker, The English are more powerful. There's a reason we are writing in English right now, and it's not Jewish people's fault. As for the holocaust, the American military documented with video footage the horrors of the holocaust. The German people who at first denied or were ignorant of the crimes had to face the truth of what their leader, Hitler, did. In the American military documentation for example, soldiers forced German citizens to come and bury the dead bodies of people who died in concentration camps. I don't know about you, but I've never been forced to do that. That's bound to have a profound effect on people. Can you imagine what would happen if American citizens were forced to bury the people American drones killed??? Some German people are actually more against questioning the holocaust than some Jewish people are. Why? Because they are ashamed of what their leader led. There are Gentiles in banking and media too. Neither is a crime. Well, that's interesting. By how some Muslims talk, it seems as if they think Jewish people (or Zionists) were according to Islam. I was going to ask you where, but thanks so much for quoting the Qur'an!!! Cool!!! Wow. I'm impressed. You're going to get some Muslims mad at you for even daring to suggest that God is blessing Jewish people, you know that right? For the record,Jews don't control the world; God controls the world. Cool. A Jewish lawyer (who is Atheist but identifies as Jewish due to family and traditions) helped my awesome hubby with immigration papers! Sigh no they don't own the world. God does, and you're going to hurt the English' feelings, because they did try very hard to control the world and again, we're writing in English, not Hebrew or Aramaic or Yiddish. Once most of the world starts writing in Hebrew or Aramaic or Yiddish, then I'd reconsider your point.
  13. Salam Shayk Patience101, Passages in the Tanakh are important to the Jewish people who care about them. (There are some Jewish people who don't care about what the Tanakh says.) While I'm not Jewish, I personally care what the Tanakh says because Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach) quoted from the Tanakh and cares about what the Tanakh says. Thank you. The Shia Muslims believe that Ali and his son with Fatima are rightful caliphs/imams, correct? Why do Shia Muslims reject Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman? Is the bloodline connection with Muhammad important to Shia Muslims? If so, then how is it wrong for Jewish people who care about their king to be from the line of King David, as God promised? I did not write the word "discriminatorily" . Do you deny that Muhammad killed (or order killed) Jewish people in Arabia? It is not my fault that some Muslims hate Jewish people, same as it is not my fault that some Christians hat(ed) Jewish people. Am I ashamed that some Christians hat(ed) Jewish people? Yes. Does my telling the truth about that horrible fact legitimize it? No. Here's the meaning of the world legitimate: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/legitimate Because of the horrible hatred by Christians against Jewish people, that is why I understand the need to stand up for Jewish people, no matter what they believe (and Jews are diverse; they believe different things.) I love Jews and Gentiles. Why? God loves both Jews and Gentiles. Peace and God bless you
  14. Salam Wahdat, Out of curiosity, why are you calling Shias "Kaffir"? Are you being sarcastic? I know that Shia Muslims are just as Muslim as Sunni Muslims, even though some people disagree with that. Invasions of other people by other people has been going on all over the world for thousands of years. My Coptic Egyptian friends don't appreciate the Arab invasion of Egypt. That's why they have immigrated to the USA, because they no longer felt safe in the country of their ancestors. Do you think God is punishing them? God does allow what seems to us to be strange, but He knows everything while we don't. Peace and God bless you
  15. Salam HumanForLife, I haven't watched this documentary yet. I'm going to wait to watch it with my husband. He's at work right now. Thanks for sharing. I am so sorry for what the USA did to Afghanistan. While I know it's not my fault since I don't have any power to control what the US government does, I am so ashamed of my government for their actions against other people. I wish God would rewind the clock and prevent the USA from hurting Afghanistan, but I know God will not rewind the clock. However, God will punish the USA for her crimes against humanity, same as He will punish every nation for the crimes committed against humanity. May God rescue the children of Afghanistan, give wisdom to the adults caring for them, and heal the nation for His glory. Peace and God bless you
