...but very iconographic.

How are we defining "iconographic" here?

Byzantine, my bad.

No.  That would be this thread.  This one is as Asteriktos described.

Which religion do you dislike/hate more? Mormonism or Islam?

(Note: These are about the religions (i.e the ideas) of Islam and Mormonism NOT the followers of Mormonism or Islam. As Christians, we should pray for followers of both these religions so that they may see the light of Christ and come and follow him.)

Islam. Islam explicitly commands christians to reject that Jesus is God. it's a religion that actually makes instruction to non-muslims/unbelievers.

O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.

 Qur'an, sura 4

All the main schools of Islamic Jurisprudence endorse capital punishment for apostates. Most muslims belong to at least one of these schools of fiqh. See the rulings.

Al-Hanafiyyah

Imam al-Marghinaaniy says: "If a Muslim, may Allah forbid turns away from Islam, the religion of Islam should be presented to him. If he has any doubts they should be cleared…and he should be kept under supervision for 3 days. If he reverts to Islam, he must be set free, otherwise he should be executed. (Al-Hidaya)

Allamah Ibn ‘Aabideen says: "Note well! It is unanimous that a renegade from Islam must be executed" (Rasaa’il Ibn Aabideen)

Al-Maalikiyyah

Imam Maalik says: "The one who renegades from Islam to another religion and exposes it will be asked to repent from his action. If he does not repent, he must be executed." (Al-Mu’atta lil Imam Maalik)

Al-shaafi’iyyah

Imam al-Shaafi’iy says: "One who renegades from Islam will not be left alone, either he reverts to Islam or he will be executed." (Kitab al-Umm)

Al-Hanaabilah

Allamah Ibn Qudaama al-Hanbaliy says: "All the scholars are unanimous that a renegade must be executed." (Al-Mughniy with Sharh al-Kabir Vol.10 Pg.74 Dar al-Kutub al-Ilmiyyah Beirut)


Islam is not only false but it's particularly savage. No religion like it exists. Islam is truly the scourge of the earth.

I use it to make statements that by a whim I decide are better said here than in Random Postings or elsewhere. In essence, I treat it like Random Postings 2.0

Faith Issues / Re: Following Christ vs being like Christ
« Last post by minasoliman on Today at 04:21:01 PM »
What's the difference?

Probably this alludes to the idea that some Western Christians see the salvation of Christ as merely a moral endeavor, or at the very least the moral endeavor takes priority.  Eastern Christians do not deny the moral endeavor, but preface this endeavor by making the communion and partaking of the fullness of Christ as the priority of our salvation.  This is probably what it means to “follow” versus “being like” Christ.

Reviews / Re: What TV shows are you watching?

I was never a series guy, but last week I gave a shot to 13 Reasons. Really liked it, although I was much more attracted to how the characters (both living or dead) deal with many aspects of guilt and shame than with the suicide main theme. On the other hand, I feel it may give a bad message to depressed teenagers, suicide as an answer, a vindication against anyone who influenced this tragic decision. Even though it lectures those near the depressed (whether they're aware of it or not) well, the only moments I felt it was tacitly condemning the main character's suicide were the excerpts showing her devastated family. Otherwise it sounded more  like "Hah! You were mean to me, so now you have my blood on your hands, sleep with that."

Working my way through Boardwalk Empire again.  Jimmy Darmody was such an awesome, complex character.  Really feeling the loss right about now.

Prayer Forum / Cramps in my legs and allergy
« Last post by Peace on Today at 03:32:26 PM »
I am about to get cramps in my legs while I walk or stand the last hours. I also still have allergic symptoms and the medicine I took caused me allergy a bit. Thank you for your prayers!
