    ...or as I like to call you, the "spiritually homeless".


    If you don't have a divine set of rules, how do you determine right from wrong?

    - You are a grown man and you don't know right from wrong without a RELIGION or RELIGIOUS leader telling you and they may be corrupt him/herself?? Is religion a crutch for you??

    "spritually homeless"?? - thanx for showing such Islamic hospitality to those you don't even know -

    what kind of Islam do you follow to be so disrespectful with your almost every post????????? I know you won't care, but it's been a while since I've associated your name with Islam........

    - you do know that everytime you call someone a name that ALLah turns away from YOU!!!! & I'm sure he's been counting since you got here, so right now you are FAR removed from Allah's sight//////////just a little food for thought.......................(pbuh)

    to answer your ? - as Karma said" Our concious - the Justice of our minds is more than sufficient to determine right and wrong!! Divine Law..........set in place long b4 any of your religions, just as nature was........to follow a religion is to place a roof on how far the mind can go..........so who is truly homeless??

    Info

    Ah...now here you go.....

    Man, why I saw your name up in my thread I was rubbing my hands together looking forward to some MEAT on my plate.

    Here you are playing kindergarten cop and riding a bruthaz back about name calling.

    According to the bible, even Jesus called a group of people blind fools...did God turn His back on Jesus?



    Where in the Koran did you read that when you called someone a name that Allah turns away from you?

    Where brutha??????

    Where is that in the book of Allah?

    Show me the Surah and the verse.


    Allah NEVER turns His back on a believer.



    Now......


    Where can I find a copy of this "Divine Law" that was laid down before any religion?

    I'd like to see exactly what it says.

    I'd like to compare it with the beliefs of others around the world to see how I and others measure up to the Divine Law.

    believer in WHAT?????

    you are one of the most disrespectful people here, so where is your Islam??

    b4 you wipe the drool off the side of your face after seeing my name, may I suggest that yu study your system of right and wrong!!!!

    How can you ask the ? of others and it's more than obvious that you have no idea of what right and wrong is??

    Kindergarden cop?? don't know what you mean as I answered your ? and replied to your disrespect!! How do expect to bring others to Allah with your sub-human example????

    Why you tripping on me on this calm Sunday night brutha?

    You got a tooth ache or something?

    You in that New York frame of mind?


    I just asked a simple question, and YOU took it as disrespect.

    There are people locked up in prison and mental hospitals because they are always taking things the wrong way and see someone looking at them or crossing their path as a sign of disrespect and going ballistic.

    - your ? itself was not disrespectful, but what you added about what you call those who don't follow religion was!! It wasn't even neccessary to throw in....

    we can agree to disagree, but in your opening ? you've already started with the disrespect which is why a lot of people don't bother posting their comments for fear they might be bashed by you or other religious people who think everyone who doesn't "believe" what they believe is wrong..........

    - step outside and take a look back in & tell me what you see -

    the last sentence of your post, again you've lost me as to your intentions.....you just seem to flow with the wind, even if it's not on the topic that YOU started.......

    i have a very clear sense of right and wrong.
    i am not religious.

    both things are true.

    if you depend on a religious leader to tell you right from wrong you may be susceptible to manipulation.

    I go by my conscious. Has my conscious been influenced by my upbringing in a 'Christian'-based American culture? Yes, which is why I would feel guilty doing things that Christians might also consider wrong.

    For behaviors and situations that could be defined as morally 'grey', I use my own common-sense and logic. If the behavior is going to hurt myself or someone else emotionally or physically it is best to be avoided.

    The Divine Law

    Thou shalt not kill
    Thou shalt not steal
    Ten of them

    Written not only on clay tablets but on the hearts of all men. Even cannibals in the south seas know that it is wrong to murder. But like our white boys they convince themselves that those outside their group aren't fully human so killing them doesn't constitute murder.

    No man can deliberately break the Divine Law without rationalizing (telling himself rational lies).

    And that which we see on clay tablets and on paper is just a copy of what is already in our conscience. No written document is the original source of its contents.
