    Before I became a Muslim, I was of those who went around calling myself "god" and believing that the black man was the original God of the universe.

    Yes...

    My favorite quote was Psalms 82:6-"Ye are all gods, children of the Most High God."

    I had my own philosophy down pat and challenged any and everybody to prove me wrong.

    PEACE RALF:

    It is not necesssarily any philosophy that is faulty, but our understanding of it that may be in question.

    The concept of God In Man is an ancient and primordial one. It didn't begin with a single Biblical verse, or even the 120 Lessons. In fact these are but recent incarnations and filterations of these principles, modernized in a form that our contemporary people can fathom and perhaps appreciate it.

    Nothing is new under the Sun.

    PEACE

    If we are God's where has our power gone? How is it that we can no longer bring one atom into existance a priori much less an entire universe teeming with life. Is it a lost art which we will regain if we turn our backs on western cybilisation? Was the creation o the white race our last mistake?

    May I ask, how long it's been since you first took your Shahadah?

    PEACE

    PEACE RIVER:

    In my response to PURPLE in the QUESTIONS thread, I asserted that alot of our understandings of most things spiritual have been filtered through western understanding.

    God for many ancient peoples never meant the same thing it means for people in today's modern world.

    It doesn't (necessarily) mean that we can fly, read minds, shoot laser beams, or other such outlandish stuff (though those things aren't necessarily ruled out).

    I no longer believe that we are gods (big or little "g").

    The REAL God showed me who was actually in control

    I've been a Muslim for about 6 years now.

    12 is too young to take shahada if you ask me.

    A person can practice Islam and believe but they should only take the shahada when they actually know and understand what they are saying.

    I'm tempted to say that one should commit to any religion ONLY when they have properly studied a wide range of others and can compare as I have.



    Do you still believe in the oath you took that there is NO GOD but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger?
