Thomas Jefferson's Koran

Wednesday, January 03, 2007
Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts - But It's Thomas Jefferson's Koran! - "Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, found himself under attack last month when he announced he'd take his oath of office on the Koran -- especially from Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode, who called it a threat to American values.

Yet the holy book at tomorrow's ceremony has an unassailably all-American provenance. We've learned that the new congressman -- in a savvy bit of political symbolism -- will hold the personal copy once owned by Thomas Jefferson."

is that anything like
FDR's copy of "Mein Kampf"?

IMO,it is,
since the contents (not the owners)
have rather a lot in common.

How about Hitler's copy of the Bible?

Why is there a division among those who believe in the same God? God sent his prophets to the house of Israel. Theen he sent his son into the world, as Jesus said: "For this I was born and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth." Then God sent another prophet into the world, Mohummad. They are all from the same God. We should listen to all of them. But that will not happen.

(1)The Jews have never accepted that the prophets were speaking to them.
(2) The theme of the Koran is to the disbelievers. Who are the disbelievers? Those who come in the name of Jesus will tell you the message is not for them, for they believe. But, they are a liar. I am not being judgmental when I say that, it is simply an observation, In John's first letter (John 1:3)he said: "He that says, I know him, and does not keep his commandmentes, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."

In teaching about praying, Jesus said (Matt. 6:5): "And when you pray you must be like the hypocrites; for they love love to stand in the synagogue and the street corners.----But whenever you pray you should go into your room, close the door and pray to you Father who is in secret." Go into any Christian church on Sunday and the people are behaving exactly as Jesus said you must not do, and they ignore what he said you should do.

The message in the Koran is for both the Jews and the Christians, which the Koran refers to as the disbeliever.

The Jews, Christians, and Muslims have a common enemy, Satan. And Satan has been successful in keeping the Jews divided, and he has divided the Christians and the Muslims. If all three religions were to unite and believe their one God, they would defeat Satan.
