I didn’t know what to blog about, so I decided to do some link whoring. (Don’t know whether to laugh to cry.)
Things I have been reading about – mostly from Wikipedia (I’m such a Wiki-nerd!):
(I’m sure you’re beginning to see a trend here.)
So, why am I reading about religions/cults/sects?
Because someone somewhere had the audacity to suggest that “Allah” is just another word in the dictionary and that if Islamic teachings are the same as Christian teachings, us Christians should adopt them into our daily practices and beliefs too (and vice-versa).
Sorry, but I respect Islam enough to NOT just dismiss “Allah” as just another word referring to God AND respect both faiths enough to know that while certains things are similar, they are essentially different and should not inter-marry as suggested.
I just don’t feel comfortable using the word “Allah” in my faith and beliefs as a Christian.
