  1. Monotheistic Dances part 24

    Abraham is one of the touch points of all three, but is perhaps the most important to the Jewish acceptance of Monotheism. Basically, Jews and Christians believe in the same God, it is Jesus that divides them. But, Muslims believe something different. As we have shown, the Quran does support the idea that Palestine is for the Jews, but nowhere quotes the landed promise that is found in Genesis 12, and repeated several times during Abrahams lifetime. For Mohammad, Abraham becomes one who was a prophet ...

    Mohammad began his ministry under what might seem like odd circumstances. He used to go, during the four holy months of the year for Mecca, to a cave on Mt. Hira. There he would pray and meditate. When he ran out of food, he would go home, get some more food, and return to his cave to pray and seek truth. One day, truth answered back.

He also experienced the death of several key people in his life while he was quite young. Just before his birth, his father died. His mother gave him to a bedouin tribe to wean and raise. When he was returned to his mother, she died shortly thereafter. He was then sent to live with his grandfather, Mutalib ...

    1 John 4:14ff: 1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
    1Jn 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
    1Jn 4:9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
    1Jn 4:10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ...
