First, this is a very controversial topic. I understand that. Considering that fact, I ask that if you are easily offended, you do not read the opinions of others on this topic: that is, go away now. I am allowed my opinion and I am allowed to say what I think. If you do not like that fact, too bad: right now America allows it. (Ten minutes from now, who knows? But right now they do.) If you have a probelm with people quoting things from the Bible, the Koran (Quran), the Torah, the Tanach, the Siddur, the Chatechism of the Catholic church, or any other source I have, then get off this page quickly because there are opinions in this section that will offend you. I study them all; I believe in only one: the Bible. That is my stand and if you have a different opinion, that's okay. God loves you anyways, whether you love Him, know Him, or even give a flip about whether He is real or not. God loves you anyways. Because of that, I cannot and do not hate you if you have a different opinion or belief system. Your beliefs are your beliefs, fine. But don't try to push them onto me. If you think that writing to me and complaining about what I post on this page, and others similar to it, you won't have a leg to stand on because I told you to go away. Run now! Don't allow yourself to get all upset because if you stay and read on, that is exactly what you will be doing: making the choice to stay and read after you have been warned. So, feel free to be angry, upset, irate, hurt, saddened, whatever. I cannot help that you feel that way (ask any psychologist or psychiatrist and they will tell you that I cannot control your feelings); nor do you have the right to complain after I warned you to not read my writing on this subject. So, now that you know where you stand, if you have the courage to read on without whimpering about it, trying to sue me for it, or without complaining until even Mt. Everest was tired of hearing you, read on. Maybe you'll learn something.
I have a code I live by while doing my research into religion: If I am going to research a religion (or religious belief), I NEVER read what others outside that particular religion have to say about it without making that only one-tenth (if that much) of my research. If I am going to learn about Mormonism, for example, I read the Book of Mormon, The Pearl of Great Price, the Doctrine and Covenants and writings by Mormons and the Mormon Church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints); Islam, the Koran (Quran); Catholocism the Chatechism of the Catholic church and writings of Catholic priests; Judaism the Torah, Tanach, Siddur and writings by Rabbis; Jehovah's Witnesses, the writings of their church. That is my creed. If I want to learn the truth of a particular religion, I go "straight to the horse's mouth" so to speak. I listen to what that particular religion has to say about itself and what it believes rather than reading what the Baptists say about Mormons, Catholics, Jews, or Muslims. I read the foundation books of the particular religion; not just the heart-wrenching stories of hurt, success, failure, love, betrayal and/or jealousies -- stories within the church, but not explaining the truth of what that church believes. Some may call what I read, the "reference manuals" or something similar. And, that is what I read. That is what interests me about different religions: finding out the truth about what they believe.
Of course, I do compare what I read in the source materials with what the Bible (usually King James Version) says because that is what my source ("reference") material is. The Bible is what I believe (every jot and tittle). I do comparison studies of the sources of a particular religion with the Bible and then I comment. As I said earlier, if you are easily offended, leave now.
So if all of the "easily offended" have left, then on with the show.
Let's start with the facts:
My Bibliography is growing regularly, but what I have listed so far is listed here.
My Writing on the subject of Religion:
Compare GOD to Allah: Are They The Same God? A chart that will show you the differences between the two.
Read my "How I know GOD Is" if you want to know why you should believe GOD is real.
Have questions about the Bible? You can ask me and I'll see what I can find for you. Some of the most common questions I have heard over the years are answered here. If you need more information let me know.
Why do I believe that GOD created the earth? That's easy: "Random Creation: Look at the Numbers". The numbers for anything else just don't add up.
Another "Difficult Question" is "Why Did Jesus Have To Die For Us?" That's easy, too.
People also find out that "Difficult Question 8" is "Agreement, Spoken Word and GODís Handiwork". This covers why agreeing with another person or the Holy Spirit is so important in your life and in getting blessed and your prayers answered. Even GOD had to have agreement to create the universe, so you know it's important to you.
I've heard people say that the "mark" on Cain was that he had dark skin and they use that "mark" to justify being a bigot. The proves their ignorance and their lack of biblical knowledge. The truth about the mark on Cain is "GOD's Protection of Cain". Read it and learn.
I've heard people say for years that GOD makes us sick, or breaks our bones, or whatever in order to teach us a lesson. I'm not of that opinion. "Job: A Different Perspective" refutes the whole idea of the Christian world's reliance on Job as being "proof" that GOD hurts us to teach us a lesson. I hope you'll read it and give some consideration to what I wrote. Read the Bible for yourself and make up your own mind. It's important and it may teach you more about GOD than you think.
There's more to come.
Remember: Anyone who does not give you a wake-up call when they see you being stupid, self-destructive, or both, just plain doesn't care about you. It's those of us who do wake you up who care.
