While We Were Sleeping Reblog #5 (Abraham the Father of Islam?)

I struggled with whether or not I should reblog this particular post.  It was one that caused great confusion and, honestly, I am not sure it is 100% correct.  However, I don’t think we can get a complete and accurate picture of the Muslim religion without it. I have decided to share it, but it has been edited and greatly shortened. Let me start off by … Continue reading While We Were Sleeping Reblog #5 (Abraham the Father of Islam?)

While We Were Sleeping Reblog #3 (Jesus, Salvation, and Jihad)

My apologies for being quite absent over the last two weeks.  The previous series on the End of Times, kind of took a lot of time and wiped me out.  I am also smack dab in the middle of a busy photography season. My plans for this week include the following:  Continue on reblogging my Israel series; Making Theme Changes (yes, again); And changing the … Continue reading While We Were Sleeping Reblog #3 (Jesus, Salvation, and Jihad)

While We Were Sleeping Reblog #2 (What is Islam Anyway?)

For those of you just “tuning in,”  I have begun reblogging my While You Were Sleeping  series.  I started it last December and, unfortunately, I allowed myself to be scared off the series and did not finish it.  Recently, while studying the book of Daniel, God reminded me that I am called to be bold and confident for Christ and, no matter what the consequences may … Continue reading While We Were Sleeping Reblog #2 (What is Islam Anyway?)

While We Were Sleeping Reblog

As promised, over the next few weeks I will be reblogging the “While We Were Sleeping” series.  I believe it was a powerful season with much needed information, but do to my fears of being contacted from several Muslims on my personal accounts, I shut down the series without finishing it.  As I have recently learned through the Book of Daniel, we must always go … Continue reading While We Were Sleeping Reblog

Abraham-The Father of Islam? (While We Were Sleeping Part 5)

Consequences.  Now that is a happy, optimistic word for 2015!  Right?  No?  Well, it may not be a happy or fun word, but it has far-reaching capabilities.  If you don’t believe me, just ask father Abraham. Most people know Abraham as the father of nations, the father of many sons.  While  Abraham’s story is the “go-to” story for faith and belief, it is also a … Continue reading Abraham-The Father of Islam?

What is the End Game? (While We Were Sleeping Part 4)

Earlier this week we have discussed  Islamic beliefs.  Today, I want to take a closer look at the purpose of the Islamic religion; what is the end game? In short, I have found that the main purpose of Islam is to know, worship, and lead others to know and worship Allah.  As a Christian, I can relate as I want to lead as many people … Continue reading What is the End Game?

Jesus, Salvation, & Jihad (While We Were Sleeping Part 3)

Yesterday we got a general overview of the Islam religion.  Today, we will take a closer look at what roles Jesus, salvation, and jihad play in Islam. Jesus It is my understanding that the Islam religion considers Jesus a great prophet, but a mere man, not the son of God.  They believe he spoke as a baby, healed the sick and lame, and raised the … Continue reading Jesus, Salvation, & Jihad (While We Were Sleeping Part 3)

What is Islam Anyway? (While We Were Sleeping-Part 2)

A few weeks back I began a new series titled While We Were Sleeping.  Yes, I have left you hanging and I’m sorry.  I spent last week frantically looking for all my lost research and writing thus far.  I thought for sure God would lead me to it.  Unfortunately, it did not work out that way and I had to start all over.  I hope … Continue reading What is Islam Anyway?

While We Were Sleeping

      What does this picture say to you? Do you even recognize this place of worship? For those of you who don’t know, this is our National Cathedral, the Washington National Cathedral (Cathedral Church of St. Peter and St. Paul).  You know the Episcopal Church (both Protestant and Catholic) where presidents’ (and wives) funerals or memorial services and inauguration prayer services have been held. … Continue reading While We Were Sleeping
