I explore Surah 53 of the Koran, which poses problems for Muslims who continue to insist that Islam is a monotheistic, Abrahamic faith.

Islam is a syncretist cult, sort of like Mormonism, combining various elements of whatever beliefs where circulating in the world at that time to obtain power for the leader.

In the case of Mormonism, it was a non-institutional, revival-style Christianity, heavily colored by Old Testament fantasies, combined with 19th century spiritualism and interest in magic (remember, Joseph smith believed he had a magic hat that would help him find gold). Upstate New York, where it had its origin, had been the location of wild religious movements for years and also of various “spiritualist” colonies.

In the case of Islam, it was bits of Judaism, bits of Christianity, and bits of the pagan astrological religions of the the area. And a lot of craziness. But it was basically to help Mohammed, who was a warlord, control the populations of places the Arabs overran.

Islam Originated in Midian. Where there was Baal worship.

It took that and incorporated it into Islam becoming the false religion.

A lot of pagan religions did. And Islam took bits of them into its bizarre brew.

Bingo. Islam is re-packaged, re-sold Baal worsbip. Created by another bigger traditional religion at the time, as a means of aiding to wipe out the jews, failed and got out of hand. Hence the crusades. Just a part of history, but not the rewritten version.

It is interesting the way socialists approach theological concepts for when it comes to Islam they are not the only ones who refuse to approach the issue. That even includes leading Christian clergy including Pope Francis.

Followers of Mohammed not only claim, but truly believe that God has authorized them to kill those who refuse to submit to their version of Gods will.

That is a basic tenet of that religion. A claim which goes unchallanged which makes it a theocratic creed advocating a form of government that is to replace the existing one.

While it is understandable for atheists which most socialists are, not to approach that claim on a theological basis. But believing by bombing and killing those who believe in it will end its practice,which will not. Islam as construed with its portrayal of a mercyless evil deity approving using deception and deceit is an abomination which must be discredited and condemed.

And that can only be done by attacking its assertions and tenets. Certainly not by ignoring and deying they do not exist. .

It is bewildering why many Christian clergy concerned about quote, political correctness, unquote, refuse to address what an insult to God islam is and worse yet are unable to condem then convince and convert its advocates and adhearants they are followers of an evil creed .

The Koran which was not given to Mohammed by God but by some angel .Demanding enforcement of sharia law which draws heavily from the Torah.It is a pseudo religious concoction using monotheistic selected texts, taken and misconstrued from the old (bible) and new testaments.

Both of which cite the Almighty has granted free will to accept or obey his laws and God is the final judge not man: Sodom and Gormora ,and Let he who is without sin cast the stone, are outstanding examples from both books. One deals with sin and Gods decision toward a group the other to an individual, neither is left to man.

Yet followers of Mohammed under the severest of penalties are forbidden to read either which would refute that assertion in a creed which institutionalizes disgusting arab tribal views,mores, observances,and customs. Claiming adhearants are authorized by our Creator to demand submission to it or suffer an ignominious death administered by followers of Islam simply because they answer the call to prayer 5 times a day.

The Bible says clearly that worship of any thing other than the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY (JESUS the Christ) is paganism, worship of false stone wood or beings and is purely evil.

Just saying...

Whom do you all worship? It matters.

Baal worship started before there was an ID of the Jews. At the time it was Hebrews or the 12 tribes, and one half tribe, of Israel. That is..until after Solomon. Then the nations spit.

But Baal worship continued after the Tribes were removed from Israel, except at/after that time the area of Midian became kind of remote and forgotten. Then came Mohammed. Claimed it all for himself.
