Democracy (in and of itself) sucks.
Be careful, man. You may have to account for what you've written here someday. Are you really willing to bet all you have and are, that the Christian and Muslim points of view are equivalent?
Your Biblical ignorance shows. Esau is a reference to the nation of Edom which descended from Esau. The nation of Edom chose to disobey God and was even direct military enemies of the nation of Israel. The entire book of Obadiah is knock against the Edomites.
You have a very arrogant attitude about God. You better check yourself, His mercy may run out on you soon. You need to repent of your sin and turn to the only hope of eternal life: Jesus Christ.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
No, they are quite different.
Both based on the same imaginary guy?
I have a similar attitude regarding Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny.
Who ever said Muslims worship the God of Abraham? Muslims worship the God of Muhammad's imagination. Of course, to form his imaginary god, Muhammad drew on what he knew from his culture. Not surprising that you still kiss the black stone when you go on Hadj. Where did that come from?
Well, that's what most Westerners, including myself, think. I'm sure you'd disagree. Guess we'll find out when we die, won't we. I wish you all the best. Curt
Genesis 16:14 “She called the well Be’er Lachai Roi It is between Kadesh and Bered.”
Ibn Ezra the great Jewish sage identifies the well mentioned by Hagar in Genesis 16:14 with Zimum (or in other versions, Zimzum), “where the Arabs hold an annual festival. This is Zemzem near Mecca. “
Why would Abraham (pbuh) taught Hagar and his son Ishmael to worship a moon god? Allah was the name for Almighty God in Arabia since the time of Abraham (pbuh). If Allah is personal name of a weak deity / moon god. Jews in Arabia/Yemen would not use the name Allah, the Almighty God.
