Your God Isn't My God - And Never Will Be

So there so much liberal talk that all religions are the same and we all believe in the same God and it doesn't matter what you believe you just gotta try to be good and blah blah blah yada yada crapola.

Muslims’ concept of the nature of God and forgiveness of sin is very different from a Christian’s.

Jesus’ sacrifice for sin is a onetime free gift for everyone as per Romans 10:9,10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
God the Father took it upon Himself to reconcile mankind to Him.There is nothing we can do to justify ourselves to God.

Isa. 64:6
All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like a filthy rag; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind, our iniquities sweep us away.
To illustrate how unimpressed God is with our self-righteous works, the term filthy rags refers to the cloth that a Hebrew woman used to absorb her monthly period. There is nothing you can do to earn God's grace.

In Islam, it is the exact opposite; you gotta work for it. You must submit to the Five Pillars of Islam that will spare you Allah’s wrath (maybe); these are:
  1. Shahada – Profession of Faith (There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his Prophet)
  2. Salah – Prayer 5X day Facing Mecca, the position of your body is also important and you can’t rest your ass on your heels or something like that.
  3. Zakat – Giving of Alms (terrorists get 2.5% of your income)
  4. Sawm – Fasting during Ramadan (Ramadan is the name of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar) and then gorging yourself once the sun goes down
  5. Hajj – Pilgrimage to Mecca and get trampled to death by the thousands
There's more.
In 1 John 1:19 we know that once saved, we only have to confess our sins as they occur:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Muslims do not believe in original sin; forgiveness of current sins is a continual effort. Muslims use prayer beads to count the number of times they say these prayers asking for forgiveness; they pray over and over and over again because Allah is hard of hearing (or easily distracted) and if you are truly righteous you can repeat this all day long while rubbing your beads:

Waqur rabbighfir warham wa'anta khayrur rahimeen.So say, "Our Lord! Grant us forgiveness and mercy! For You are the Best of those who show mercy."
Quran 23:118

Rabbi inni zalamto nafsi faghfirli.
Oh my Lord, I have indeed wronged my soul!
Quran 28:16

Rabbana innana amanna faghfir lana zonoobana waqina 'athaban nar.
Our Lord! We have indeed believed. Forgive us our sins and save us from the agony of the Fire.
Quran 3:16

Rabbana latu akhitna in nasina akhta'na rabbana wala tahmil 'alayna isran kama hamaltaho 'alal lathina min qablina. Rabbana wala tohammilna mala taqata lana beh wa'fo'anna waghfir lana warhamna anta maolana fansorna 'alal qawmil kafireen.
Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error. Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us. Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Protector. Help us against those who stand against faith."
Quran 2:286.
Then of course there’s that whole Death To Infidels thing.
Oh, and pork. Can't forget their thing about pork.

Correct, Allah is not God, and Mohammed was not God's prophet but instead the prophet of Allah who commands his followers to kill, steal, and abuse.

Actually, we'd ALL be better off eating a kosher diet, but I LOVE pork and some shellfish. Pork is said to be the only fresh meat that contains a chemical otherwise found only DECAYING flesh.

Hmm? Have you spoken with your religious authorities? Oh, don't think I'm picking on you. Even the Catholics, but so too the rest, the elite have gone off on their own. Don't look now, but they are as busily religiously selling us out as our politicians and businessmen are politically and economically.

Gorges,

If you know anything about the lines of kings, in the West, East, and between? They learned, or naturally do, eat decaying things. From very aged sausages to nearly decade old salt cured fish, knowing how to eat what is beyond the taste of 'others' means the potential to survive longer. Not sure though, being that elites are both placed, blessed, and cursed by both God and Satan in some ways, whether that is a blessing or curse. :p Rot, not sure it'll do you good, but it will see you through, if you can tolerate. Probably in more ways than one.
