So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. (John 21:15-19).

Usually, people only need to be asked once whether they love someone else, or at least once a day, and never thrice in close succession the way Jesus asked Peter. In fact, Peter was sorely grieved when his Master asked him a third time whether he loved Him. “Lord, you are the only begotten omniscient Son of God who knows everything. There is not a single thing hidden from you. In fact, you have known everything every single person would ever do and think before the foundation of the world. And yet you ask me whether I love you? Do I need to tell you that I love you when you already know all things?”


Allah is a Translation for God?

Cahtolic God AllahCatholic church wants permission to call God ‘Allah’

December 15, 2009 –  from The Baltimore Sun:

Lawyers for the Roman Catholic Church have urged a court in Malaysia to let Christians use “Allah” as a translation for God and overturn a government ban that has become a symbol of religious grievances in the Muslim-majority nation, the Associated Press is reporting.

The High Court began hearing legal arguments Monday in the dispute, which began in late 2007 after the government blocked non-Muslims from translating God as “Allah” in their literature on the grounds that it would confuse Muslims.

Authorities have insisted that the name should be used exclusively by Muslims. The ban mainly affects the Malay-language edition of the Catholic Church’s main publication in Malaysia, The Herald, which is read mostly by indigenous tribes who converted to Christianity decades ago.

“Our position has been made clear to the court,” The Herald’s editor, the Rev. Lawrence Andrew, told the AP. “The main thing is we’ve been using this word … for a long time, for centuries.”

But in recent years, authorities have seized some Malay-language Bibles that used “Allah.”
We are reminded of reports a couple of years ago that a Catholic bishop in the Netherlands wanted Dutch Catholics to call God “Allah.”

Tiny Muskens, then the bishop of Breda, told a Dutch television station that using the name in church, as is common in many Muslim countries, would eventually promote rapprochement between Islam and Christianity.

“Someone like me has prayed to Allah yang maha kuasa [Almighty God] for eight years in Indonesia and other priests for 20 or 30 years,” he said. “In the heart of the Eucharist, God is called Allah over there, so why can’t we start doing that together?”


Is Allah the Name of God?

Allah is the name of the only God in Islam. Allah is a pre-Islamic name coming from the compound Arabic word Al-ilah which means the God, which is derived from al (the) ilah (deity).

The Arabic name for “God” is the word “Al-ilah.” It is a generic title for whatever god was considered the highest god. Different Arab tribes used “Allah” to refer to its personal high god.  “Allah” was being worshipped at the Kaa’ba in Mecca by Arabs prior to the time of Mohammed. It was formerly the name of the chief god among the numerous idols (360) in the Kaaba in Mecca before Mohammed made them into monotheists. Historians have shown that the moon god called “Hubal” was the god to whom Arabs prayed at the Kaa’ba and they used the name “Allah” when they prayed.  [Emphasis added] —

Allah is NOT the name of the Living God of the Bible.

Soul Journey to Godhood

Soul Journey

Soul Journey to Godhood

I always thought the big question was, “What’s the meaning of Life”,  but now I see it’s changed to, “Who Am I?” what “Journey” must I take to figure out who I am?

It would seem Rick Warren really did get his “what’s your purpose” message across loud and clear.  The message especially landed on all the ears of every occultist out there;  “Go out guns blazing people, Pastor Rick Warren has finally authorized our passports to go out to all nations and preach Spiritual Transformation.”

So I came across this website the soul journey with an Affiliate program as well.  I think Rick Warren will be kicking himself that he didn’t think of that one, the affiliate program that is.  Anyhow this website is run by some very experienced occultists who will give you “a grounded and practical guided exploration of the bigger picture of who you really are”.
