“Of Spirit and Faith” (318 hits)

Gregory V. Boulware

Separation – We Are Not Merely Separated By Race And Skin Color, But Merely By Religion And Culture!

On several occasions, I have espoused my belief in what religion means to me. While continuing to believe that religion is man-made. I seek refuge in the Lord of the People – The King of the People – refuge against the Jinn and Men, for God is the beneficent and the most merciful. I seek the Peace, Blessings, and the Mercy of the Lord for Myself and the Dear and Near to Me. I seek Peace and Contentment for the Masses who suffer – be it injustice, hunger, and/or ignorance. It is with God’s help that mankind enters God’s Religion. “When cometh the help of God and the victory, and thou seest people entering the religion of God in multitudes, celebrate then the praise of thy Lord and seek thou his protection – There is no God but God!” (An-Nasr – The People)

Very Often, a fiction author depicts life and the great truth of life better than the historian. The writer does not pretend to write what is exactly true. He or She describes all things with imagination. Ordinary people are therefore privileged to see what grounds the commonly accepted scriptures reveal. One can examine the pile of evidence and do ones own sifting through the maze of text. Thousands – Millions of people look to the New Testament as their leader and guide. It is paramount to know upon what authority this information is derived, and many women and men will be delighted to find the evidence clearly presented before them.

History may be true, but in a sense tradition is even much more true. Many times it's been said that history records what has been, but it is tradition that tells what it ought to have been.

Perdition is Damnation – the Eternal Death!

People must also remember that such a thing as historical accuracy is a comparatively novel product. It is a remarkable fact that the events recorded in the Holy Scriptures, as far as we know or can find out, were verifiable and the chronicles were truthful – most of them.

No man has ever appealed to the mass imagination of the world and so played upon our feelings as has Jesus of Nazareth. The ordinary man, woman, and child is invited to take his place in the council chamber which accepts and rejects the various writings and scriptures. It is interesting to know what forms of stories and speculations about him took place in the early period of the Christian era. It is safe to say that the conclusion desired can be left to his or her common sense. Whereas, it can no longer be said that our scriptures were/are accepted by learned men; we do not know that, but we must accept their conclusion, yes?

I think not!

In speaking for myself, and as a spiritual believer in the authenticity of accepted scriptures – and some that are not – I have no reluctance or hesitancy in saying that I, like many others, am perfectly satisfied to let the common sense of people of the world decide upon the superiority of the acceptance of certain scriptures and the rejection of others. All of the information is perfectly intelligible to the common woman or man.

“I worship not what ye worship, nor worship ye whom I worship; nor shall I worship whom ye worship; nor will worship ye whom I worship – unto ye be your religion, and unto me my religion. The one with the knowledge of the truth, can never give way for any other consideration or purpose.”
(Al-Kafirun – The Disbelievers)

Happy 82nd, M.L.K…

May GOD Bless Us All
