Idolatry

All eyes forward, all minds closed…

All mouths shut except to “sing praise”.

Alas, “the faithful” are so blind that that cannot see that the preacher is the real object of worship.

  1. Just because Christianity is rooted in Judaism, and Islam is rooted in the book of Abraham (and you forgot the Mormons) does not make God confused. Only us.

  2. The Priest, Rabbi, Christian Pastor, Shaikh or any leader, orator, professing /teaching faith or religious belief is ONLY a Messenger, not a source for praise. One must study, question and seek supernatural guidance (prayer) to decide what they believe and who is the source of thanks, praise and ultimately salvation.

  3. Precisely. Good point.

    And this is what Allah (God), Most High, warns us about:

    “They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah – i. e. God (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah i. e. God)…” (Qur’an 9:31)

    Which is why God tells Muslims specifically, but everyone, generally, to worship God alone – and not our/ people’s opinions of Him.

    Thank you for your words, thoughts.

    • It never ceases to amaze me how so many Christians and Muslims never think that my meditations are about THEM and about THEIR “one true religion”.

      So, just to be clear, I would add imams, ayatollahs, and supreme leaders to the list of preachers… not to mention all the patriarchs in every “faith” no matter what their title…. as well as most every politician, man and woman, conservative and liberal… AND… wait for it… all those dictators (Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, etc) that “true believers” like to use in order to attack non-believers (an epic fail).

      By the way, you do realize that both Christianity and Islam are rooted deeply in the book of Abraham… And, as such, each and every flavor of Christianity and Islam is a sect of Judaism.

      Salam, Shalom, Peace.
