Fringe Benefits – Part 7 September 12, 2013
As I was falling asleep last night it dawned on me it has been great being able to sleep on my left side, on my right side, or on my stomach if I want. There’s nothing like being stressed about waking up and realizing you turned on your left side during the night. The Allah/Muhammad duo loved to micro-manage the hell out of everything.
Fringe Benefits – Part 6 August 24, 2013
BOOM! I can eat any kind of rice krispie treats with marshmallows and not spend my time hunting down halal/kosher versions.
“Are you not from everlasting, , O Lord my God, my Holy One(קְדֹשִׁ֖י )? we shall not die. O Lord, you have ordained them for judgement and, O Mighty God, you have established them for correction.” ~Habakkuk 1:12
Al-Quddus or The Holy is also קְדֹשִׁ֖י in this verse(The Holy written in Hebrew).
“O LORD, I have heard your speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy(rahem).” ~Habakkuk 3:2
The Hebrew word for mercy also reflects one of the 99 names of Allah: Rahem or mercy or רַחֵ֥ם
“Consult together, argue your case. Get together and decide what to say. Who made these things known so long ago? What idol ever told you they would happen? Was it not I, the LORD? For there is no other God but me, a righteous(Saddiq) God and Savior. There is none but me.” ~Isaiah 45:21
“Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like me.” ~Isaiah 46:9
“Listen, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone(ehad).” ~Deuteronomy 6:4
Umar Lee leaves Islam June 16, 2013
Anyone who was really involved with Islam in the past 20 years or so has probably heard of Umar Lee to some degree or another. He wrote a really popular series titled “The Rise and Fall of Salafiyyah” that told the hard truth about salafism. I’ve spoken to him on a couple of occasions in the past when I was still Muslim and I have to say I am surprised and not surprised by this revelation. I think the signs were there that would eventually leave. I’m not sure if he truly left or is just going through a burnout phase but I hope he slams the door shut and doesn’t look back. Perhaps I will reach out.
Happy Anniversary March 2, 2013
WordPress wished me a happy two year member anniversary and it is also my two year apostasy anniversary. What an interesting two years it has been. I have learned quite a bit and will probably set one day a month, possibly two, into writing on this blog.
