Every year the Shia Muslims make pilgrimage to one of their main religious sites in Iraq. And it is quite a sad spectacle to behold indeed.
A goulish / gastly site of folks beating themselves, whipping themselves, and cutting themselves till blood flows. Many have inflicted themselves with serious injury as a result.
While Islam has not been around since ancient times, [ 7th century], horrible and dispicable practices similar to what was just described were engaged in by heathen cultures.
A notable account of this is the confrontation between Elijah, the prophet of the Lord, and the false prophets of Baal .
When the prophets of Baal failed to bring about a response from their idol-god to meet the challenge put to them by Elijah, here is how they reacted:
"And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them."
Israelis were strictly forbiden by the Lord to engage in such heathenistic practices.
There’s a great war a brewin’. Has been for centuries. When the wrath of God will come and every valley shall be exalted and every mountain laid low.
And every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father.
Jesus said that we’d know false prophets like Mohammed (MHBH) and Chuck Darwin by their fruits. If that was the only thing Jesus had ever said after he learned how to talk he’d still be one of the ultimate wise men in history.
I take it you are unfamiliar with Holy Week in the Phillipines.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12:3)
