An axiom is a fact with no scientific evidence
A = B, B= C so logically C must equal A
That's an axiom

Your talking about personal truths, totally different

Religion by its own standard is a faith, faith is not an axiom

People are individual and have individual and free thought
Some choose what resonates to them for whatever reason

It's not and never can be an axiom

Jesus taught love, even those we should hate
That is not logical

Do you want to be content and at peace or do you want to be full of hate?
Unless you forgive you cannot be full of love.
It is pretty logical.

If you believe you can 'own' God then you will not get in.

Allah Moon God


Is Allah the God of the Bible, or is Allah the moon god of ancient Arabia?

While "Allah" could refer to God literally, the Allah of Islam is the moon god of ancient pagan Arabia.

The Arabic word for "god" is "ilah," while "al" is the Arabic for "the." Therefore, "Allah" combines "al" with "ilah" and removes the "i" to literally means, "the god."

But much like "YHWH/Yahweh/Jehovah" is the personal name of the God of the Bible, "Allah" is also the personal name of the moon god, the chief among the three-hundred sixty pagan idols that were worshipped in Mecca, the home town
of Muhammad.

Is there evidence that Islam's "Allah" is the pagan moon god of ancient Mecca?

Consider what the ancient pagan Arabians did to worship their moon god, Allah: they prayed while bowing toward K'abah, the "house of Allah" in Mecca that houses a meteorite - a rock from space - several times a day, visited it once a year, and
walked around it several times during their visit. To worship their Allah today:

Muslims pray bowing toward the K'abah (right) in Mecca five times a day.

About two million Muslims visit Mecca every year and walk around the K'abah
(the black cube, which is 40 feet tall).

The Muslim "holy" month of Ramadan starts at the sighting of a new crescent moon.

Perched atop churches across the world is the cross, the symbol of the sacrifice made by the God of the Bible (see True Gospel). Perched atop mosques across the world is the crescent moon (above), the symbol of Allah whom Muhammad chose as the god of Islam.

When confronted with the details above, Muslim typically re-assert that "Allah" still means "al" + "ilah" - i.e., "the" + "god" - and is same as the God of the Bible, not the moon god of pagan Mecca. They even point out that Arabic Christian Bibles
use "Allah" to refer to God. The "Allah" in the Arabic Christian Bibles is literally "the God" and does refer to the God of the Bible. Advise Muslims that if this is really the God they are worshipping, then they should stop bowing down to a meteorite five times a day and the crescent moon should neither start their "holy" month nor top their mosques.

If the "Allah" they are worshipping is genuinely the God of the Bible, then they should worship Him as the Bible instructs.

So many gods.... only ONE real one.....the rest? FRAUDS....fallen angels, demons, aliens...whatever you call them.

You got that wrong......He owns me through my own free will. He is the master and I his servant.

You said he was 'your god' (like you own him). You did not say that 'he owns you'.

On the language point;
The word "my" does NOT always mean "something I own".
It means "something related to me, or associated with me", but there are many different kinds of relationship.
A man can speak of "my street", "my neighbours", "my employer", "my home town", "my state Senator", "my profession", "my enemy", "my generatiion", "my ancestors", even "my wife", but it doesn't follow that he's claiming ownership of these things.
So don't play verbal games. Someone who says "my God" is not claiming to own God.

The thing is 'you' believe that 'you' are separate to God. Until the 'me' and 'mine' go the illusion of separateness continues.
All is God - there isn't any 'thing' separate.

Where are 'you' going to find 'God'?

Some 'thing' related to 'me'. Yes - that is two.
When the two become one the kingdom shall be revealed.

What is 'me'?

Prior to concepts (verbal games) lies the truth - hidden in plain sight.

In this two minute clip Dr David R Hawkins exposes the verbal game in which the illusion of a separate me is generated - mind blowing!!

If there is belief in some 'thing' then there is the delusion - so it makes no difference 'which' religion.
Strange though - cause all religions point to the same - no thing.
Advaita is now called non duality but what that actually means is 'not two'.
All religions point toward - not two.

If religion is blind faith, without questioning and personal growth it's always "worse", no matter what cultural circle it came from.
If it doesn't allow you to make it a personal experience but an accepted dogma out of fear, (be it afraid of your neighbour, your parents/family, or loosing them, or hell, ... whatever), you're already imprisioned in hell.
You have to be allowed to find god within you and that can be a bumpy ride with many wrong turns.

No it's not logical, outside of faith in Jesus, Christianity is completely absurd and stupid
It's a simple and direct question, what value is Christianity without Christ
