Isaiah 50 – 24 June 2017

Isaiah 50

1 This is what the Lord says: “Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce with which I sent her away? Or to which of my creditors did I sell you? Because of your sins you were sold; because of your transgressions your mother was sent away.

2 When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my arm too short to deliver you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you? By a mere rebuke I dry up the sea, I turn rivers into a desert; their fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst.

3 I clothe the heavens with darkness and make sackcloth its covering.” [  ]

Proof of Prophecy: A Logical Argument for Muhammad’s Prophethood 18 June 2017

This article continues from and assumes the conclusions of our previous article on the Proof of the Existence of God as Unconditioned Reality. We request readers not familiar with this argument and the concept of God as Unconditioned Reality to read it first before this article. We also recommend readers consult our earlier article 10 Surprising Facts to Know about the Qur’an, which is a companion article to this present piece.

Nature is the great daily Book of God…
God’s miracles are the very law and order of nature.

Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III,
(“What have we forgotten in Islam,” Letter to H.E. Dr. Zahid Husain, April 4, 1952)

The Prophet himself never claimed any miracle of any sort. The only miracle which you have in Islam is the Qur’an.

Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni Aga Khan IV,
(CBC Interview, “Man Alive with Roy Bonisteel”, October 8, 1986)

The purpose of this article is to offer a philosophical argument for the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad: to demonstrate that Muhammad b. ‘Abdullah (570-632) was a

Begin with Alef By Tzvi Freeman May2017

At Sinai, He said, “Let us bond together. Let us embrace in these mitzvahs, commune in this Torah, and in them we will be one.”

But He is an infinite, unknowable G‑d. If we cannot know Him, how can we bond with Him? [ begin with Alef]

Passover Timeline 2017-something to think about.

The passover is a significant event to Jews and Christians. This article explains more about it and why it’s important.

Good Friday is a Myth

All over the world Christians and Catholics will be observing Holy Week, from Palm Sunday April 9 to Resurrection Sunday April 16, 2017.

The Catholic church teaches that Jesus went to the cross on a Friday and rose from the grave on a Sunday morning. It sounds right, and mostly everyone across the board accepts those days and that chronology. Only one problem! It’s completely wrong according to the biblical account of what happened. This teaching is based on 1 Corinthians 15:4 which says this:

“And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:4 (KJV)

Artista que criou icônico pôster de esperança por Obama lança novas imagens: protestando contra Trump | VIVIMETALIUN

Há oito anos, o artista Shepard Fairey criou uma icônica imagem do então novo presidente dos Estados Unidos, Barack Obama. O pôster em azul e vermelho junto à palavra Hope (‘esperança’, em inglês) acabou se tornando o símbolo do governo do democrata, primeiro afro-americano a assumir o cargo.Agora, com a mudança da liderança na presidência dos Estados Unidos, o artista criou novas imagens. No entanto, ao invés de homenagear Donald Trump como fez com Obama, Fairey criou cartazes que mostram mulheres de diferentes etnicidades. Uma moça latina aparece junto à frase, “Lutamos pela dignidade“, a muçulmana acompanha a frase “O povo é maior que o medo” e a negra: “Protegemos uns aos outros”.As criações de Fairey fazem parte do movimento “We the People” (Nós, o povo”), iniciativa da ONG Amplifier Foundation e devem ser utilizadas em manifestações contra “ódio, medo e racismo”.Os cartazes representam as minorias existentes nos EUA que devem protestar contra a posse do republicano que acontece nesta sexta-feira (20). No sábado (21), dia seguinte à posse, está prevista a Marcha das Mulheres que vem sendo organizada desde a eleição de Trump e acontecerá em Washington e em várias outras cidades americanas.As imagens de Fairey e dos artistas Ernesto Yerena e Jessica Sabogal estão disponíveis para download gratuito no site da ONG.

Eight years ago, artist Shepard Fairey created an iconic image of then-new US President Barack Obama. The blue and red poster next to the word Hope (hope) became the symbol of the democrat’s first African-American government to take office.

Now, with the change of leadership in the United States presidency, the artist has created new images. However, instead of homage to Donald Trump as he did to Obama, Fairey created posters that show women of different ethnicities. A Latina girl appears next to the phrase, “We fight for dignity”, the Muslim accompanies the phrase “The people are greater than the fear” and the black one: “We protect each other”.

Fairey’s creations are part of the “We the People” movement, an initiative of the NGO Amplifier Foundation and should be used in demonstrations against “hatred, fear and racism.”

The posters represent the minorities in the United States who are expected to protest against the Republican’s inauguration this Friday (20). On Saturday (21), the day after the inauguration, is scheduled the Women’s March that has been organized since the election of Trump and will happen in Washington and several other American cities.

The images of Fairey and the artists Ernesto Yerena and Jessica Sabogal are available for free download on the NGO website.
