    GOD is dead?

    My friend sent this to me in email, and I thought I would share it.

    http://www.bogvaerker.dk/Bookwright/...d_is_Dead.html

    GOD IS DEAD?

    WHO KILLED HIM?

    We did!

    We located Him

    and confined Him to the heavens,
    excluding Him from the earth.

    We dared to make images of Him.

    We gave the Ancient of Days

    a long grey beard
    and a human form.

    We cast His role

    as lying at the beginning of creation,
    with odd interventions
    here and there in history.

    We only conceded to Him "Acts of God"

    strange capricious disasters
    which insurance companies
    will not cover.


    We restricted His worship to drafty,

    old, stone buildings,
    one day out of seven.


    We gave Him Who has no form as we know it,

    a human form,
    and when a mortal human being
    reminded us of God's transcendence
    we elevated that man into a deity.


    Our scientists stole His laws,

    straight plagiarism.
    The planets had moved in elliptical orbits
    for millions of years
    before Newton 'discovered'
    the Laws of Motion.


    Lacking a Supreme Being we elevated nature

    to a position not hers.
    Then we methodically set out
    to conquer this power,
    devastating land,
    sea, our food
    and the very air we breathe.

    Already satisfied that we had got rid of God,

    we revived an assembly of lesser gods
    that would have confused the Greeks,
    embarrassed the Romans
    and are the envy of the Hindus
    .

    We are contemptuous of worship and prayer,

    yet we pass our lives
    in a thousand empty rituals,
    adoring and propitiating
    a multitude of friendly
    and hostile gods.


    We spend lives dedicated to eating and drinking.

    Is this not worship?


    We have committed ourselves

    to spending the greater part of our lives
    making money,
    and by that we make money our god,
    for no ascetic monk in his little cell
    ever showed more complete devotion.


    We have restored the old idol

    of voluptuous sexuality,
    and its nubile form graces our newspapers,
    films, our walls
    and our dreams.
    It, in its turn, has rewarded us
    with venereal diseases,
    their sister AIDS
    and social disintegration
    on an unparalleled scale.


    We are too proud to bow before God,

    but we will crawl on our faces
    to the bank manager,
    when we run into trouble on our mortgages.


    We are, in fact, living our lives

    in order to buy our houses,
    like Pharaoh
    who dedicated his reign
    to building his pyramidical tomb.


    With God passed away Heaven and Hell

    and in their place we put the fantasy,
    never-never land
    of computer graphics
    and its fully-automated,
    centrally-heated,
    double-glazed,
    fast-food brothel
    which has unfortunately
    the terrifying potential
    to metamorphose
    into the Gulag Archipelago,
    genocidal massacres and state tyranny
    as a way of life.


    Now comes the part where Christians might differ

    So God is dead
    We killed Him.
    Yet the God we killed does not exist anyway.


    God one-of-three
    does not exist.
    God old man with grey beard
    does not exist.
    God remote above the heavens
    does not exist.
    God of this or that people
    does not exist.
    God who sent His son
    does not exist.

    There is no god,

    But Allah.


    Allah is One.

    He is not located in any place,
    for if He were,
    He would be limited and so,
    not divine.


    He has no form,

    for He is the ceaseless originator of all forms.


    He eternally creates the entire cosmos,

    and He sustains every photon,
    atom, cell
    and quasi-stellar object
    at every instant.
    Without Allah they do not exist.


    He sustains every living thing,

    Christian, Jew, Hindu or Atheist.


    He is not the Lord of the Arabs,

    or the Jews,
    or the Christians,
    but Lord of the Worlds,
    of all beings
    and of all Being.


    No thing resembles Him,

    no image nor concept,
    yet He is the Hearing, the Seeing.


    He has no son,

    for His son would have to be a god
    with limitless power
    and it is impossible
    for two omnipotent beings to exist,
    they would limit each other.
    Anything limited is not a god.


    He is terrible might and power,

    and sublime mercy and compassion.


    He is far exalted above

    being one out of a pair of opposites.


    He is Allah.

    He is the Answerer.
    He is the Vast.
    He is the Universally Merciful.


    God is dead.

    Allah is,

    The Living Who does not die.

    I heard an interesting lecture on this recently. It basically concluded that both radical christianity and radical Muslimism were a result rejection of the gross secularization of modern western society.

    If you look at the ideas that fed the rise of Hitler, Marxicm as it actually unfolded. and radical Muslimism, (all rose at around the same time), you can clearly see how the last century gave rise to planting seeds of some very radical movements.

    It was a NPR production, and I can't do justice to it. but is anyone is interested I will look up the specifics if anyone wanted to order it.

    unfortunately, I know what it is. Sighting it as a source was questionable though IMO.

    ALLAH ---> Literal meaning = THE GOD

    its a pronoun , which emphasises 'THE GOD' meaning the only ONE GOD !!

    so its better to say ALLAH than just God !!!

    yes!

    but I HATE when Muslim says ALLAH!!!!!!!!!

    they speak in french, spanish, english, they will not use GOD, but Allah

    this puts a separation like Muslim have a better god or THEIR GOD like some use in vain, not thinking we have the same GOD, that he is name
    Dieu, God, Yahvé, Allah

    Allah is not a PC word anymore!!!!!

    God is God
    Allah is Allah
    Dieu est dieu

    I don't like this thread.

    Allah is Allah and God is God. Not to be confused. If you say Allah, you will sound Muslim, if you Say God you will not sound Jewish but Christian or Catholic.
