in response to reader comment: Islam is the only perfect religion

It is written: THY RIGHTEOUSNESS IS AN EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND THY LAW IS THE TRUTH. PS 119:42. As a young man I was in the refrigeration business during the seven day war. At that time Islamic people enter into the NYC community by the thousands. They worked hard and together. They open grocery stores throughout the community. Black Muslims was very strong during this time. They taught a deep sense of self respect to black people. They taught us some things about Islam. A person may not agree on everything they said but you had to respect them. Men that was in prison, on drugs and other forms of weakiness stood tall. They spoke with confidence. Black people saw new hope. Indeed i was so impressed I gave my daughter the name Sharifah.

I was born in a so called christian country (USA). With this background I was almost forced to compare the religions from without and within. I study the Koran and the bible. I study the history of Islam and christians. I went to meetings. I spoke with strong leaders of both faiths. I also openly talked and listen to anyone on the subject of Islam and christianty. Most important after reading many books and praying for wisdom I came to what I believe is more important then anything, that is truth that is greater then religion. Truth that challenges me and anyone who wants it to rise higher in thought and action. Truth that will stop all wars. Truth that has a very high price.This truth is not determined by where I was born or one group of people thinking.

Before I explain what the Lord has taught me ,America going with weapons and so call freeing others is not an acceptable answer. Members of Islam forcing people to think and act a certain way is not acceptable. It is not the creator purpose to give us what ever we think we want but to give us what is best for all creation. "Perfect religion is not the one where we get whatever we want: it is one where God works out in us whatever he wants." You think Islam is the perfect religion and others think Christianty is the perfect religion. Then others think they have the perfect answer. What do I think? If you are interested we will email each other again. However, you will be suprised. Perfection is only possible when we submit to the creators will. "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. " from sylvester..
