|The True Religion Of God : God (creator) And Creation by Oricha62(m): 6:31am On Jan 17, 2018|
God and Creation
Since the total submission of one's will to God represents the essence of worship, the basic message of God's divine religion, Islam, is the worship of God alone. It also requires the avoidance of worship directed to any person, place or thing other than God. Since everything other than God, the Creator of all things, is God's creation, it may be said that Islam, in essence, calls man away from worship of creation and invites him to worship only his Creator. He is the only one deserving of man's worship, because it is only by His will that prayers are answered.
Accordingly, if a man prays to a tree and his prayers are answered, it is not the tree that answered his prayers but God, Who allows the circumstances prayed for to take place. One might say, "That is obvious"; however, to tree-worshipers, it might not be so. Similarly, prayers to Jesus (p), Buddha, Krishna, St. Christopher, St. Jude, or even to Muhammad (p), are not answered by them, but are answered by God. Jesus (p) did not tell his followers to worship him but to worship God, as the Qur'an states:
"And behold! Allah will say: 'O Jesus, the son of Mary! Did you say to men, worship me and my mother as gods besides Allah?'; He will say: 'Glory to you, I could never say what I had no right (to say)'" (Qur'an 5:116)
Nor did Jesus (p) worship himself when he worshiped, but rather he worshiped God. And Jesus (p) was reported in the Gospels to have said:
"It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.'" (Luke 4:
The basic principle is contained in the opening chapter of the Qur'an, known as Surah al-Fatihah, verse 4:
"You alone do we worship and from you alone do we seek help."
Elsewhere in the final book of revelation, the Qur'an, God also said:
"And your Lord says: 'Call on Me and I will answer your (prayer).'" (Qur'an 40:60)
It is worth emphasizing that the basic message of Islam (namely, the worship of God alone) also proclaims that God and His creation are distinctly different entities. God is neither equal to His creation nor a part of it, nor is His creation equal to Him or a part of Him.
This might seem obvious, but man's worship of creation, instead of the Creator, is to a large degree based on ignorance, or neglect, of this concept. It is the belief that the essence of God is everywhere in His creation or that His divine being is or was present in some parts of His creation, which has provided justification for the worship of God's creation and naming it the worship of God. However, the message of Islam, as brought by the prophets of God, is to worship only God and to avoid the worship of His creation either directly or indirectly.
In the Qur'an, God clearly states:
"For We assuredly sent amongst every people a prophet, with the command: Worship Me and avoid false gods." (Qur'an 16:36)
When idol worshipers are questioned as to why they bow down to idols created by men, the invariable reply is that they are not actually worshiping the stone image, but God Who is present within it. They claim that the stone idol is only a focal point for God's essence and is not in itself God! One who has accepted the concept of God being present in any way within His creation will be obliged to accept this argument for idolatry. Whereas, one who understands the basic message of Islam and its implications would never agree to idolatry no matter how it is rationalized.
Those who have claimed divinity for themselves down through the ages have often based their claims on the mistaken belief that God is present in man. Taking one step further, they claim that God is more present in them than the rest of us, and that other humans should therefore submit to them and worship them as God in person or as God concentrated within their persons. Similarly, those who have asserted the godhood of others after their deaths have found fertile ground among those who accept the false belief of God's presence in man.
It should be abundantly clear by now that one who has grasped the basic message of Islam and its implications could never agree to worship another human being under any circumstance. God's religion, in essence, is a clear call to the worship of the Creator and the rejection of creation-worship in any form. This is the meaning of the motto of Islam:
Laa ilaaha illaa Allah" (there is no god except Allah)
The sincere declaration of this phrase and the acceptance of prophethood automatically brings one within the fold of Islam, and sincere belief in it guarrantees one Paradise. Thus, the final Prophet of Islam (p) is reported to have said:
"Any one who says 'There is no god but Allah', and dies holding that (belief) will enter Paradise."
Belief in this declaration of faith requires that one submit his/her will to God in the way taught by the prophets of God. It also requires the believer to give up the worship of false gods.

Say, “Who rescues you from the darknesses of the land and sea [when] you call upon Him imploring [aloud] and privately, ‘If He should save us from this [crisis], we will surely be among the thankful.’ Say, “It is Allah who saves you from it and from every distress; then you [still] associate others with Him.” (Quran 6:63-64)
And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful.
True prayers are to be directed to Him alone; and those to whom they pray instead of Him do not respond to them at all, but they are like one who stretches his hands towards water so that it may reach his mouth (by itself), while it is not to reach it. And the prayer of the disbelievers (that they make to false gods) is nothing but straying in void. (Quran 13:14)

Everything about Islam is false and idolatry.
1_The shrine ( Kabaah ) the pre Islamic idol worshipers used for their rituals is adopted by Islam.
2_Idol worshipers used to Tawaf the kabbah, Muslims tawaf the kabaah 7 times when they go on hajj.
3_Idol worshipers be4 Islam used to tawaf btw Safa and Marwa, the Muslims do that as well.
4_The idol worshipers used to kiss and worshipped the black stone, the Muhammed kissed the black stone and every Muslim does likewise.
5_The "Baal " worshippers were known to worshiped the moon and stars . "Allat" in mecca was worshipped as a moon goddess. Islam now makes the followers to worship this moon goddess by creating an image of half moon with star and makes the worshippers to place it at the topmost part of the mosques.
6_ The idol worshippers used the name Allah as their god when performing their rituals. Islam also adopted the name Allah as their God.
The crescent image of the moon and star is caved and place at the top most part of the Mosques for everyone to see and worshipped. God gave warnings regarding this in the Bible:
Zephaniah 1:4-6 KJV
I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord , and that swear by Malcham;
Deuteronomy 17:2-3 KJV
If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord thy God, in transgressing his covenant,
 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;....
Islamic practices are the same with the pre Islamic Arab paganism.
Moreso , the Muhammed was a sex addict. How can you trust someone who spent all day having sex and kissed the idolworshipoers black stone?
Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268:
Sahih Bukhari :
Anas bin Malik said, "The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number." I asked Anas, "Had the Prophet the strength for it?" Anas replied, "We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men)." And Sa'id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven).
Volume 2, Book 26, Number 675:
Sahih Bukhari :
Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:
"Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (Black Stone) saying, 'By Allah! I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.' Then he kissed it and said, 'There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now Allah has destroyed them.' 'Umar added, '(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).'
Op, go and deliberate on this , where you spend your eternity depends on knowing the truth. Satan is not a fool.
A fake always comes after the original. There is nothing like final revelation. God is not a failure and not author of confusion. God is the first and the last. The Bible is the first and the last.
|Re: The True Religion Of God : God (creator) And Creation by Oricha62(m): 10:01am On Jan 17, 2018|
enilove:All your accusations were all false ,if want to know the correct anwser to the above mentioned accusations bring them one after the another we shall discuss them.
Your heart wasn't inclined to know the truth but occupied with evils and hatred.
Can you denied that you didn't used vioent and harsh words in your post against my religion and prophet? Is that what your religion teaches?
Can YOU prove to me that your Religion is the true religion? And also prove it that bible is the first and last book revealed by God.
|Re: The True Religion Of God : God (creator) And Creation by enilove(m): 12:09pm On Jan 17, 2018|
I didn't you any harsh words.
I can prove to you that Christianity is the true religion and the Bible is the first and the last.
I will start from the foundation or origin of religion . Without this understanding , one can be deceived.
I will tell you the foundation of Christianity and the Bible as well :
Without the fall of Adam and Eve there wouldn't have been anything called religion. The curse of God on Adam makes everyone on earth prone to the attacks of Satan.
It was that sin that separated Man from God his Creator. This made Adam and his discendants living during the time of Noah to seek way to communicate with God. But unfortunately , Satan that deceived them did not leave them alone. Satan and his demons made the people of old to worship him and other demons. There 4 , the first form of religion was idolatry and witchraft. Thus, witchcraft brought wickedness and all the woes to the world and made man to be suffering contrary to God's wishes.
God began his ways of saving mankind ,after Noah ,by calling Abraham .
God told Abraham that his plan of salvation is through Isaac and not Ishmael , the founder of Arabia or the ancestral father of the Arabs.
Satan is always trying to disrupt God's plan. God new this so He told Abraham to send Ishmael away because His plan of Salvation is with Isaac and not Ishmeal.
Abraham , Isasc and Jacob died in Israel and were buried in the same place in Israel even b4 God gave them the land.
The God of Abraham can be trusted because of the wonders He did in Egypt when He called Moses and how He parted the Red Sea. God promised Abraham he was going to send his descendants to a foreign land and will bring them out with signs and wonders to show to everyone He is the Almighty.
This God has always been called God of Abraham , Isaac and Israel not God of Abraham and Ishmael.
Jesus came through the people of Israel . Moses only gave them the laws pending the coming of the Messiah , which is Jesus Christ.
Jesus came to take away the curse Adam brought on man to reconcile us back to God through his blood. This Jesus raised up the dead , walked on the sea , healed every form of deceases, used a clay to form a bird and it flew. He did not kill but came to be killed for our sake. His blood is not from any man but of the Holy Spirit. He did all those miracles and did numerous ones even for me and people living today.
The spreading of Christianity was not by killing the people but by showing signs and miracles which no one can do but God.
The Bible says that there will come a time when no one will be able to buy or sell unless he receives the mark of the beast 666. This is unfolding gradually through the computer and internet. The BVN registration , POS, and cashless policies are indicators to this prophecy. The Bible can be trusted bearing in mind that there was no bank as at the time of the prophecy.
Jesus' testimony speaks volume:
John 9:20-34 KJV
His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:  But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.  These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.  Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.  Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.  He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no , I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.  Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?  He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?  Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.  We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow , we know not from whence he is.  The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.  Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.  Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.  If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.  They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

enilove:Be patient with me because iam going through your post gradually.
You said( The curse of God on Adam makes everyone on earth prone to the attacks of Satan.)
I asked what is the name and description of God that cursed Adam (A.S) and also what was the curse God placed on Adam (A.S)?
|Re: The True Religion Of God : God (creator) And Creation by enilove(m): 2:52pm On Jan 17, 2018|
The name of God that cursed Adam is Jehovah . No man can tell the description of God because God is a Spirit Personality with Spiritual body:
John 4:24 KJV
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The curse God placed on Adam are these:
Genesis 3:16-19 KJV
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;  Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;  In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art , and unto dust shalt thou return.
Man was not created to die , it was the sin that made God to pronounce death of we humans.
John 10:24-42 KJV
Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.  I and my Father are one.
 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?  The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.  And many believed on him there.

Thanks for your reply. I didn't see in your post where God call himself jehova.
You said God doesn't have description even in the bible which people see as the book of God.
But In my religion(Islam), Allah description himself in the following chapter.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
112:1 Say: He, Allah, is One.
112:2 Allah is He on Whom all depend.
112:3 He begets not, nor is He begotten;
112:4 And none is like Him.
|Re: The True Religion Of God : God (creator) And Creation by enilove(m): 6:38pm On Jan 17, 2018|
I see that as attributes. I didn't know that was what you meant.
God is referred to in the Bible as :
The God of gods
The king of kings
The Lord of Lords
The Alpha and the Omega
The biginning and the end
The first and the last
The I am that I am
The consuming fire
The Almighty God.
God revealed His name to Moses:
Exodus 6:1-3 KJV
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord :
 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.
Psalm 83:18 KJV
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah , art the most high over all the earth.
Isaiah 12:2 KJV
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Revelation 1:8 KJV
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
I don't know if that answers your request.
