In life we all relate to God in different ways although His names usually contribute to the path we walk down. His names are innumerable.
Some relate to Him as Jehovah, which means The All Mighty one. And as all mighty implies, there would be a degree of humbling servitude in how He is related to because of His unlimited power and strength.
He is also known as Abba, which means The Eternal Father. As such, He is related to as a child receiving guidance and direction from one’s father.
He is also called Eloi or Eluhanu, which means Our Eternal Friend, whereby we will turn to Him knowing that he will always have our backs.
He is also called Krishna, which means The All-Attractive One. When you think about someone that is all attractive it is not hard to see that someone who is all-attractive possesses every quality possible. He is usually related to any way that you want to relate to Him, but usually as your childhood friend whereby you can have the upmost fun, respect and admiration for Him.
Then there’s Allah, The All Compassionate One. This is where I have strong doubts about some that follow Allah.
Compassion, according to Webster, means sympathy for or to feel pity or sorrow for one’s misfortune with an urge or desire to help them.
So, where is compassion exhibited when you force someone to follow your path?
Where is compassion exhibited when you cut off someone’s head because you consider them an infidel, which is someone who does not believe in a particular religion or path or who has no particular belief or does not follow what you want them to follow?
How does force equate to compassion?
Where is the compassion when you strap bombs to a little child, send him into a crowed area and blow him and everyone else up because you consider them “infidels” and then justify it by saying The All-Compassionate One will honor the child by performing this heinous compassionless act?
The worst of the worst is how women are treated as creatures that require no respect, and can be exploited in any way imaginable.
This was all put into perspective by Nonie Darwish, a Muslim woman that escaped and converted to Christianity, in her book, Joys of Muslim Women.
She points out that in the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child and consummate the marriage by the age of 9.
A dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman who becomes his slave and for the purchase of the woman’s private parts to be used as his toy.
Should the woman feel and experience abuse, she cannot obtain a divorce and if the woman is raped she must have 4 male witnesses.
To make matters worse, after the woman is raped she can be returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. Then, the family has the right to execute her, which is deemed an honor killing, to restore the honor of the family.
Husbands can beat their wives at will without any justification for the beating and the husband is permitted to have 4 wives and a hooker for an hour at his discretion.
The Sharia Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.
In the Western World – Canada, Australia, United States and Great Britain – Muslim men are starting to demand Sharia Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control over her.
With the radical Islamists working to impose Sharia on the world, Western civilizations will be destroyed because the thought that all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual, Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed. Ah, the height of endless compassion!
While people in the Western world believe that all religions encourage some form of golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics: one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims, espousing that peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules the world.
While truly compassionate people believe that everyone has the right to develop a relationship with God as they see fit, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.
Many believe that in 20 years there will be enough Muslims voters in the Western World to elect the heads of government by themselves.
In the oil countries, petroleum dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam.
Free choice in life is a blessing. Intolerance is anything but compassionate. It’s as if the Nazi’s are reforming under a different “label”.
