Last Page First
Some of us like to look at the last page of a book to see how it ends, particularly if it is a long book. There is a lot of information on this site and I want you to take time to read it and know what it is you will achieve if you do.
I ask you all who read, to ask yourself, Why would God make it so difficult for us to know what he wants from us who seek very seriously to know him? Either he is not there and God is a manmade concept, or we have not read the Qur’an AND the Bible enough to know what the OVERALL message might be. This is what A Certain Myth oR iS iT tRUE provides. It is a lifetimes seeking, reading and testing of WHO and WHAT God is. Think of the message of God like this. A large jug of milk with a small amount of cream at the top. All the milk below the cream is all the words of the Bible and Qur’an. When we have read ALL the words of these books, we then KNOW and UDERSTAND the “cream” of the words of God “One True Message of God” which is in A Certain Myth oR iS iT tRUE (www.ACertainMyth.com) It takes 1- 3 hours to read instead of 60 years of life. You will have the basic facts of what these 2 books say, not what the Leaders say, there is a difference.…and it makes a difference to what happens with the Terrorism. While we know only “part” of these books, or only read one of them, we are lost, even “drowning” in the “milk” in the jug, and are dragged off into errors of belief by others following the same error. ISIS is a profound example of this, but so is the Trinity teaching by the Christians and that Jesus is God. These are also errors believed by many. As is the belief that we go to “Paradise” if we kill for God, or that Jesus is not the Son of God, which the Qur’an DOES agree Jesus was miraculously conceived, but not in those words but “God says Be and it is! (Surah 3:45-47), and if miraculously conceived, then he is the Son of God, for an embryo has to have the 23 chromosomes each from a man and a women to become a child, and if God conceived him by his “power” and spoken word by the Angel (which the Bible AND Qur’an say is the case), then those ESSENTIAL 23 chromosomes normally provided by a man, had to have been provided by God’s miraculous power, so we have to conclude he is the Son of God and that the Qur'an is not te "perfect" word of God, for it later contradicts itself by saying God cannot have a Son. But the Bible also has contradictions and is ALSO not the "perfect" word of God. However I do believe there is a God having experienced his power sevral times in 1988. I do not ask you to read www.ACertainMyth.com and this website so that you “believe” in God necessarily, but so that you and others KNOW what is ACTUALLY said in these 2 books and you Share on Facebook/Social Media www.ACertainMyth.com / www.ACertainBattle.com and/or 1 or 2 of the You Tube video clips on this site and gradually, but quickly hopefully, we can abolish the terrorism, which comes from lack of knowledge of what these books REALLY say and not knowing them BOTH. I ask this of believers and unbelievers alike. Please help the world and do this, there is no money involved and you are not compromising your "faith", you are clarifying it. Why should any of us fear other "words" if we believe we have "truth" already, we can make no judgement on ANY book or faith without knowing about it, we cannot rely on what others tell us. I ask this of you to abolish terrorism, not to win you over to another faith, yet there should only be ONE faith in the world anyway if there is only ONE God. Hence I say, www. ACertainMyth.com is to CLARIFY your faith, or if you are an unbeliever, to confirm you are right or not in your "unbelief" fo there is much error being taught.
On account of the current war and recent mass exodus of Syrians, you should be aware that Abraham was also Syrian (Deuteronmomy26:5-9). He had a wife and one son from her called Isaac. Abraham's grandson Jacob (twin brother to Esau) was renamed Israel by God, he married 2 wives who were also Syrian. He had 12 sons of which Judah was one, this is the Jews. Abraham also had a son called Ishmael by his wife's Eygptian handmaid. Ishmael married an Eygptian had 12 sons who "Princes" as declared by God and whom God said he would bless and make a great nation also. These are the Arab/Middle Eastern nations. Ishmael also had a daughter and she married Esau. This makes the Jews and Israel located within their natural family origins within the Middle East and nearby their ancient relatives in Middle East. It is the Roman Empire that destroyed the 2nd Jewish Temple in 70 AD/CE and took the Jews captive to Rome, Italy, leaving Jerusalem desolate and ruined. The Jews were eventually dispersed from Rome around the world. Jesus Christ predicted this would happen in Luke 21:20-28. Since 70 AD/CE the Jews have been stateless and homeless moving from nation to nation until 1948 when the United Nations gave permission for the state of Israel to be established following the end of World War 2 and the Holocaust, when the Nazi regime sought to destroy the whole community. Please see Headings "Home Page" and "Baseline Story" for more details.
So what is the ultimate aim of this website?
We must put in order the correct interpretation of religion and 2 of the most relevent books, the Bible (containing the Torah and Prophets) and the Qur'an. For we are ALL currently in error and this is causing unnecessary wars and murder. We must also establish a better means of prosperity, political process and mutual understanding for ALL nations.
1)To establish the One True Message of God and 2010 Creed Of God which is in "A Certain Myth...oR iS iT tRUE?". A Link is provided on this website free to read, or go to www.ACertainMyth.com. The true message of God does not include the "trinity" (God being 3 in one) for this is not scripturally correct. The true message of God DOES prove scripturally that the Qur'an confirms Jesus IS the Son of God. The true message of God DOES confirm the Messiah had to come about the century Jesus did or not at all. There will not another Messiah to come for it would be out of the prophetic timing of Daniel 9. These and other issues are key areas of discord between the 3 religions and yet ARE proven scripturally in A Certain Myth oR iS iT tRUE (www.ACertainMyth.com) and also on this website.
2)To appeal to Jews, Christians and Muslims to step back, CALL A TRUCE, and look again TOGETHER at what they are believing. To Read A Certain Myth and establish the One New Nation under God with that One New Nation International Culture which has discarded ALL religious laws, all having the same expectations and goals of God in mind. If there is only ONE God there should only be ONE message about and from Him, none of us have it yet. A Certain Myth may contain the beginnings, or IS the FULL message of God as it is meant to be. Any message of God should bring the experience of the miraculous. If it does not, none of the messages are true, but words of men only.This may not be the best website in the world, and you may find errors along the way, which I will gradually eradicate as I notice them. Nor are my books the best books, but there are "certain" things I have learnt about life over 60 years, and some of these things may assist you, particularly if you are young, the youth of the world, if you read them. This is in order that you do not waste time on things that are not true, particularly where religion is concerned, be you Jewish, Christian or Muslim.
3)To gradually test and establish a new Political process, Polity, the rule of the many, by the many, but just as a voluntary voting system initially via the internet so that the governments, or the UN, or EU, can see the ideas and votes put forward on an issue. Voting based with knowledge, honour, self discipline and integrity of those voting to benefit the many, be it a nation, the EU, or the whole world and all of its citizens, with the same open and known goals with no hidden agendas kept from the people. Please see Heading: The Future Faith & Politics, and side page A New Politics. The above process can EVEN NOW run alongside every nations current governments, but let there be a central website that individuals register to vote first for issues for their own nation, then a central international website for issues on the world, or the EU. Like the Syrian war for instance, or the mass immigration problem, or each nation that is at war. On each issue there should be 2 youtube 5 or 10 minute presentations of 2 experts outlining the issues and then the options to resolve the issue. On issues of a warring country let each "faction" be allowed to present their case on video, together with a group of citizens suffering the affects of the war. The listener votes and/or perhaps they put forward their own ideas to resolve any issue in the initial stages. There is nil tolerence for abusive comments, if it occurs just once that person will be removed from the data list and not allowed to reapply for voting.
4) To agree and establish one compulsory language to be used worldwide so that all the world can communicate. This probably should be English or Spanish as they are already widely spoken. For expediency it probably needs to be English because it is already widely spoken as the first language of many nations, already the second language of many nations and the Language I believe used in banking, computer systems and airline use, although I may be wrong. Let there be a Free on-line basic English Language course set up available worldwide. I ask that readers do not become agitated at this suggestion but consider the state of the world, the difficulties many suffer, and the need for expediency, to get to the end result as quickly as we can. I am suggesting a compulsory second language, not first language. This would also allow people from other nations to apply and gain work throughout the world. Immigrants should also learn the basics of the language of their new home nation within 3 years, some seem to make no attempt to do this yet attack that society when then want to make demands on the "social rights" of that system. I have experience of this. A person cannot integrate or function properly in a country if they cannot understand even simple public notices or spoken requests. Costs are also increased to their new home country in having to provide translators. There has to be some effort on the part of immigrants to take responsibility for themselves and not rely their new national home to bear the cost of such things that can be changed
5) Even as those already living in any particular nation, immigrants or otherwise, they should not expect that nations health and social care system to pick up the cost of alcohol abuse, overeating, smoking, expensive pets and new children while on benefit etc. It is not fair that tax payers have to cover the cost of irresponsibility and lack of self discipline. The rich and the poor have potential for corruption for we are all part of the human race. The poor are not "saints" neither are the "rich", nor are the immigants, nor the English, nor the "foreigners". We can all choose to act more honourably and stop being lazy, rude, demanding, abusive and doing as little as we can, for as much as we can get for free. Do not strike, do not riot, do not loot. Obey the laws, even the small laws like not throwing litter in public places or cleaning up after your dog. Do not be rude or argue with the police if they ask you to do something, its not a TV programme, but do what they say, in most countries they are just attempting to doing their job fairly. If you have a gun on you or run from the police and are shot, you may deserve it, for why do you run or argue with them if you are doing no wrong? Their work is to protect the public, NOTHING warrants a riot of that persons friends to cause severe social disruption and cost, it particularly does not warrant it if it is established a person IS doing criminal activity of some sort, and it PARTICULARY does not warrant it if a gun is somehow a few yards away or on their person. Be kind, consistent and fair to your children and explain to them what you want them to do. They understand more than you think and have a great sense of justice. You set the example to them as to how to behave in life, they will copy you, they hear much of what you say, even when you think they are not listening. Even how YOU speak about the Police.
5) Perhaps to eventually set up a fund that people, governments, celebrities can pay into, to be distributed nationwide and worldwide to telephone accounts by bitcoin (for transfer charges are 90% cheaper) or other currency to those in need or on a "dollar a day" or to supplement health care and social systems. Governments could pay some of the "AID" this way, to individuals rather corrupt Governments. We could set it up in the UK initially and then worldwide in each country as per Acts 2:42-46 below. So that the wealth of the world could gradually be distributed to benefit all until all nations were democratic, at peace and had economic growth. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.
6) To establish/provide access to a basic (non academic) knowledge available to all via the internet eventually to be free of charge and in every language together with a Free on line Basic Englsh language course. So that ALL nations have the same basic understanding of history, religion, science, physics, astronomy. This in order that we all have a basic understanding of our origins and "where we are now" in life and history. I have given further reasons for this under Heading: The Future Faith & Politics side page Education. This is very important. Below is the beginning of a list but it will be added too or improved in due course. These DVDS contain some information on all 3 religions and some history of most nations of the world.
1) History of the World by Andrew Marr 2) The Wonders Collection with Prof. Brian Cox (wonders of the Solar System) 3) The Story of Science Presented by Michael Mosely 4) Darwins Dangerous Idea presented by Andrew Marr 5)The Richard Dawkins Collection (a Channel 4 DVD available from Amazon) 6) A History of Christianity presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch 7) Jerusalem (The making of a Holy City) Presented by Simon Sebag Montefiore.
We "the people" can change the world for the better this way….and soon, not by force, suicide bombings, strikes or riots, but by pooled knowledge of experts on any issue of life on earth and government, be they in government or not, then by internet discussion by blog by the many after hearing/reading the experts opinion on a matter, followed by free internet vote of the many, to be considered (but not strictly followed initially) and then enacted by the Politicians elected as they perhaps consult the voting figures and the ideas they may put forward. This without any bias for a country, a people, a party political line or a religion, but what is best for the world. This will lead towards testing a new government system Polity. All politicians eventually being "independant" and only loosely linked/affliated to a party. According to Aristotle, democracy (goverment of the many by the few) is a corrupted form of Polity (Government of the many, by the many). Please see Heading: The New Faith & Politics Side page A New Politics. At present opposition parties put forward old ideas that have not worked just for the sake of "opposing" the either side, yet there is no basis that these ideas will work as they have failed once already. Socialism, Communism leading to Miners and other Strikes 3 day weeks and riots. If all MP's are independant there can be "one" sensible way forward for a nation that is discussed and agreed wihtout having some "ideal" or party line that has to be adhered to. There should perhaps be a short Political Course provided that all MP's should have taken prior to standing as an MP's to cover the basic principals of Politics, Law, Economics, and the prodedures of Government. It may be helpful that all citizens take this course even at school so that all citizens are "Politically aware" and can vote and even behave responsibly in society, particularly if "Polity" polling is used.
However, the "people" have to have intergrity and seek the best for all and have some "knowledge", of history etc (such as the DVDs suggested above) committment and sense of responsibilty for their vote otherwise we will continue with corruption and disorder. Perhaps only those who have watched the DVDs and the Experts 10 minute video for each issue will be eligible to vote. We have to have self discipline, integrity and responsibilty, and once adults, seek also to apply self discipline for our own health, lives and families and our decisions for the world. No drugs, no smoking, no pornography, no excess overeating, excess alcohol etc etc. This all costs money to the nation and health systems of the world unneccessarily. If we abuse our body and then expect the tax payer to pay the costs of putting us right. and then do the same thing again, this is not responsible and unfair to the rest of the community. As is getting so drunk and taking up the time of police and A & E hospital services. As does no use of contraception when a couple have no job, no home and no stabilty. Society cannot afford and keep allowing and paying for such irresponsiblity. The children should be taught this so that they are aware of what the NHS system will cover them for and what they may not now be covered for if the Goverment decides to withdraw cover for those that abuse their bodies and make unfair and irresponsible decisions. The Catholic church must also alter its position of banning contraception, it is not based on scripture and not all contraception disallows its use under the Catholic criteria.
People are abusing the social and health care system and then rudely demanding "rights" at the same time, which the "politically correct" public dialogue and sometimes the "law" supports. These "laws" are often a European "directive" and Europe is an "ideal" political system being tested and is also not working properly. As with Communism, it has to be adjusted as the "ideal" and the "test" of it fails.
In addition to, or instead of, giving Asylum to thousands we cannot afford,with no end in sight of the numbers, and our systems already overloaded. It is better to assist more decisively in resolving ALL wars and resolving the message about God, and providing AID for rebuilding. For we can do nothing if immigrants keep turning up, the UK and other nations may try and return unsuccessful claimants to their country, but this is not easily accomplished for they abscond and dissappear into the system, or utilise the legal system fo 10 years at great cost and then still abscond. We need to improve the "lot" of poorer nations, to abolish corruption and assist with advisers to esablish democracy and free market together with AID to establish this aim to encourage them to transfer this.
The West has its peace and prosperity because the generation of World War 2 had to stand and fight and work to establish peace with their oppressors. They were shot if they ran away and it was compulsory to fight. My Father and his generation had to sort it out.
Europe and its rules and economy is not "working" as it is. If we take in year after year ALL immigrants who apply under the current "Asylum" rule, our cultures will change and we will be having civil wars in England and Europe. It is a different mentality and mindset they bring and probably a religion they will not want to reject even though it is the lack of understanding of their religion that is causing the problem, as with the division with all religions. Perhaps we should also query/reconsider the law that allows freedom to follow our God as we see fit. Islamic State believes that Sharia Law can only be established by the "sword" and force. The Qur'an on its own is not a book of peace when not read together with the scripture from "aforetime" (the Torah/Bible) as it instructs us to do. The Hadiths were also "spoken" or established by the Prophets example life, but this was when the Prophet was NOT under the "inspiration" of God as the Qur'an is claimed to be. It is from the Hadiths the Sharia Law has come from.The Hadiths are the laws of men, and some Muslim scholars already query their accuracy. This is why they are leading to such violence and oppression. We have to read the Bible and the Qur'an if we want the One True Message of God that TRULY leads to Eternal Life or Paradise. For a quick introduction to this message(for it takes a long time to read both books if you are working and with family life) please read A Certain Myth on www.ACertainMyth.com. It will take you 1 to 3 hours to read.
It would seem that religion is trying force its way back into politics, into the democracies of the West, and we have to deal with this. We do not want Sharia law which brings such oppression and cruelty when in the wrong hands and which is based only on the writings/example of the Qur'an and that of one Prophet, there are 20 other Prophets at least. The Qur'an itself tells us to "obey" Jesus, to read the scriptures from "aforetime" which is the Bible and which contains the Torah and other 20 Prophets of God. The Qur'an also tells us it makes "no distinction" (no difference) between the Prophets, and to listen to all God's Prophets or "messengers". There are about 20 other Prophets in the Bible and if we only read the Prophet of the Qur'an we will not be hearing the "full" message of God and we are in disobedience to the command in the Qur'an. There should not be Christians, Muslims or Jews and any more but "One New Nation" of "believers", with "One New Culture" that have read both the Bible and Qur'an (or read "A Certain Myth" which is the overall message of both books, please see link on this site or www.ACertainMyth.com) who seek peace and the best for ALL nations and people and expect to experience the miraculous or "power" of God in their lives, which, if you read both books, you will see this IS to be expected.
It means Christians discarding the teaching of the "trinity", Muslims accepting that Jesus is the Son of God, which the Qur'an DOES confirm, but it uses different words, and Jews accepting that Jesus is the Messiah and that there is not another Messiah to come and that he had to come around the time Jesus did or not at all. This is all confirmed by scripture and in A Certain Myth, which takes 1 - 3 hours to read.
As a separate issue, I only recently realised, very late in life, after hearing most of my life that we as individuals cannot do very much to affect the world, that we can only affect our little “corner”, our family, our neighbours, our town. This is NOT true. It is INDIVIDUALS that have changed and affected the whole world for good, or ill. Buddha, Christ, Moses, Mohammed, Plato, Aristotle, Bill Gates (Microsoft founder), Tim Berners Lee (Internet founder), Louis Pasteur (Pasteurisation/vaccination), Watson and Crick (DNA Double Helix), Winston Churchill....Hitler, Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Osama Bin Laden.
Most of us do not want war, or to be blown up for no reason, or any reason come to that. We all just want to live a happy fulfilled life in good health, enough food, shelter, warmth, work we enjoy, someone to love and who loves us. Because of this, we ALL need to fulfil our potential to the fullest extent for the benefit of all, it MATTERS what YOU do with your life until we ALL get to the bottom of its mystery. So we keep on keeping on whatever our interest or speciality, even if it IS dealing only with a small corner of the world, for that IS important, but let it be for the good of all, to build up… not destroy, or bully, or kill, or making life difficult for others. What does war and striking achieve? Devastation of the company that employs us and further loss of jobs, or making life difficult for society, your fellow man, and at worst when there is war, devastion of that nations cities and economy. Its not the way to resolve issues.
The main problem in the world at present is our Faith or "belief" in God, currently most of us have only part of the message of God. I believe I have the FULL message, having read the Bible AND Qur’an. I do not rely on what others teach me but just what these books say. Yet there are contradictions in them. If we read both books, or A Certain Myth, we would eradicate the errors we currently follow and which cause so much trouble. If we eradicate the errors, we eradicate the religious wars, abuse, poverty, illness and potential “end time battle” that the above 3 religions believe will occur and may unnecessarily be trying to create, or hurry it along, in order to bring about the “end times” and new world that is meant to follow.
These books are being incorrectly interpreted by not reading them BOTH enough, in order to understand the FULL “end” message they may provide about "eternal" life or "paradise". If we do not keep reading them we get stuck half way through, we then act on a "half" message, thinking we have the full message, when we do not, hence the wars and killing. There is meant to be a tangible “power” present when we have the One True Message of God, confirming He is with us.
I want to eradicate the foolishness of war, much of which is created by incorrect interpretation of the above 2 books. I want to also eradicate the foolishness of some politics and some belief systems that we have and that hinder us in life for the sake of just having a little more knowledge. Knowledge that can be read, or heard over a video in a few hours, but may take years to discover on our own.
The end result/ message of the Bible & Qur’an is that God’s Spirit will dwell IN us which will heal and resurrect us. We receive it by certain words and by our "belief". Since Jesus Christ came he has fulfilled ALL religious laws and there are now NO religious laws to follow for diet, length of beard, the way we dress, male or female circumcision, special days of worship etc because of these words;
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth”. (Romans 10:4)
This means since Jesus Christ came (if he did) he has brought to an end the need for mankind to obey religious laws in order to make us "righteous" or acceptable before God and therefore obtain eternal life of paradise. But it is now "Faith (belief) that works by "love" and "love is the fulfilling of the Law". In the Qur'an it has Jesus saying to obey him, all of his words are in the Gospels in the Bible. We all need to read those words to understand the "life" he says he brings from God. The basic message/words are in A Certain Myth. Please read it before you make any decision about your faith or life.
Galatians 5 1Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. 5For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. …….. 13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
The Bible and Qur’an and the relevant history related to them, takes a long time to read and even begin to understand. After 60 years I certainly do not understand it all but I understand more than I did 40 years ago, even 2 years ago. The scholars and religious leaders are all in dispute about these words, and each teach their followers different things, hence the wars we have had, and still have. The youth, if they read A Certain Myth and trust that I have no dispute with any religion or person, but only present and unbiased view of the Bible and Qur’an. They may save themselves and the world a lot of trauma, trouble, wasted years and lives. There is a message within these books that can be proved by Gods own intervention in our lives by a miraculous experience or answered prayer.
I have believed and do believe in God still, and have experienced his “power” as described on this website and in the book A Certain Life with A Certain Message. I want to eradicate the errors we teach each other and we are taught by the religious leaders and scholars. Teachings and messages that are NOT in the Bible or Qur’an. These errors lead us away from what may be The One True Message of God… which SHOULD bring “power” and answered prayer into our lives for ALL believers once they have discovered the TRUE message of God. I believe this message is as related in A Certain Myth or iS iT tRUE? Which can be read in 1- 3 hours and is free on line via the link on this site or www.ACertainMyth.com or it can be purchased as a book on Amazon or Waterstones (see link on this site under heading The Certain Series).
For others that have experienced the miraculous more than I. Please also see www.smithwigglesworth.com (1859-1947) and www.burrswood.org.uk/about burrswood/our history please also see the pdf files at the bottom of that page link and also obtain if possible, the book from their bookshop link on that page, “The Living Touch and The Fulfilling” by Dorothy Kerin (1889-1963) it is a remarkable healing and testimony and was in the newspapers at the time (1912). The book is Currently £7.50. To place an order for "The Living Touch and The Fulfilling" Call 01892.865996 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also read the excerpts of my own book and experience which is on this website under heading A Certain Life with A Certain Message" and go to side page A Certain Life/1988 Prophecy. Please also read a recent book "Do What Jesus Did" by Robby Dawkins Available on Amazon.
We have to move on to new ideas and concepts, for the world cannot go on as it is using again the old systems and concepts which are not working and are being abused by the elite and the common man/woman. We have to restore the concept of honour, i.e. doing the honourable thing even if others are not, self discipline, respect for each other and integrity in each individual to do what is right for the common good. We all need to be aware of the negative side of human nature in all of us and the reality of it, and find a constructive intelligent way of dealing with it. For instance, I took it for granted that those coming out of prison were given assistance when they came out, yet it is only recently that such assistance has been given to these people. I was stunned at this, it is obvious I would have thought, that offenders will return to their offending if they come out of prison with no money, no home and no friends except those they had before they went to prison and led them into it.
Please read the book "The Future of (almost) Everything" by Patrick Dixon. See how the world leaders may be assessing the future. Please also read The Politics Book by DK an any of the other books they offer you may find of interest, Economics, Religion etc. They are very basic easy to read but give the ordinary man and woman a good basis of each topic.
It is a common sense logical end result that "Asylum" is not what it was 30 years ago when maybe a dozen a year might apply. We have to remove the concept of "rights" for Asylum and refugees for Europe cannot now sustain the numbers and demands of it. Or if it is to remain then it must be compulsory that the Middle East, Russia China, all the world, becomes part of this offer for rehabilitation coupled with AID and assistance to each country, or direct to the migrants from a pooled monitored fund. At present it appears Saudia Arabia and Iran may be funding the terorrism activities undercover yet are part of the Allies official fight against the war and neither take in Asylum Seekers. Its crazy really, but abviously difficult to resolve. We can resolve it if we "sort out" the "Message of God" and religion generally, for we let people "believe" on foolishness really. I am 60 now and very upset that I may have spent so much of my life making decisions on "untruths" that the educated know and could have told me in a few words the facts when I was young. Greater effort should also be made to resolve the issues where the wars are, compulsory attendance to a meeting of all warring parties and AID provided for reconstruction if they do come to discuss matters and a truce agreed. A number of refugees or citizens or the warring nation should also attend.
The One True Message of God must be established worldwide in order that everyone has the basic FULL knowledge of what the Bible and Qur'an say, so we all have the the same mindset and expectation for the future and we are all waiting and working towards the same goal, be it a secular future or the spiritual future which is God's goal according to these 2 books, the Bible and Qur'an. Remember "Spiritual" and God is directly connected to "words". Therefore the "spiritual" goal is according the "words" in these 2 books. If there is a God, and you have that belief, there has to be one message for ALL people to easliy access it, including Jews, Christians and Muslims. We do not find this FULL message because we are not looking at each others books and do not read these books long enough to find the message. That message is now in A Certain Myth...oR iS iT tRUE (www.ACertainMyth.com).
My life has never been "easy", always only having just enough to make ends meet and not having my own home, or "living in" as one job, and then doing another day job. Even for 4 years sleeping in converted fitted wardrobe with my clothes hanging over me! That flat had no cooking facilities or drinking water either, but at least it was self contained, yet in size only about 7' x 6' but I lived and worked and fulfilled family obligations from there and did not expect too much else from life. I am single, white English and an ex nurse. My Father risked his life for 4 years in El Alemain, when he returned he worked 7 days week as a farmer and when that finished he worked 6 and half days a week in a job linked to farming, leaving at 6am and home most nights at 8pm or even 10pm at times. My Father and his generation gave their lives (he survived) to establish peace and a social system to protect the vulnerable at times in life. When I was in my teens it was considered dishorouble to claim this if you did not really need it. Immigrants AND some English are dishonourably claiming and making demands on that system that is already under pressure, both in the UK and elsewhere in Europe.
The belief systems of many are causing these wars and discord and a huge mass movement of people, it is based on an incomplete message about God. We MUST sort the Religion out, the Jews, Christians and the Muslims. We are ALL in error.
Please take time to read this website and A Certain Myth. Please also watch the youtube videos on this site. Then decide what you want to do about God and your life. If we first get the message about and from God correct, we will be 99% on the road to success and changing the world for the better for ALL nations. We cannot leave it just with the religious leaders, YOU read these books, the Bible and Qur'an, but read first A Certain Myth which is only 1 to 3 hours reading to understand the basic message with relevant scriptures. It is illustrated with very basic illustrations which will be improved in due course and in other languages.
The words you read and believe and act upon are CRUCIAL to your life “now” and your “Eternal Life” or “Paradise” after this life, if there is such a thing as “life after death”. Because of my experiences I still believe there is a God who will prove His existence to us if we read the Bible and Qur’an in FULL, or just read A Certain Myth. If you are are unsure after reading it then read both the Bible and Qur'an and you will KNOW what is error and what is "likely" to be true.
Suicide bombers DO NOT have the FULL message of God and die in vain, they will be victims of their own lack of knowledge, they are relying on half truths, for they have not read the Torah and other Prophets of God and Gospels which the Qur'an instructs us to do. We all need to read the following words;
John 1: 1-2 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
John 4: 23-26 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
John 6: 60-63 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? 61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? 62What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63It is the spirit that quickens (makes alive); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life
According to the Bible, which contains the Torah and the Gospels, it continues a “theme” which the Qur’an does not develop further. The “theme” is that God is a “Spirit” and words are “Spirit” and He will come and live IN us when we believe in Jesus as the miraculously conceived Son of God and the WORDS he says as written in the gospels Mathew, Mark Luke and John.
You will see from other verses in the Bible and Qur’an and provided in A Certain Myth, that God is invisible and comes to us with “power” through the “words” we read, particularly the words of Jesus Christ who claimed he only spoke the words that the “Father” wanted i.e. what God wanted. A Prophet is one that “speaks” for God, for God is an invisible “power” or “Spirit” and Spirit is linked to “words” in some way. Even our own words is our “spirit” going forth and is invisible, in this manner we are the "image" of God. When we receive Gods words as declared by Jesus in the Gospels we receive God's Spirit with power INTO us which brings his miraculous power to heal and ressurrect us, and we are truly in the "image" of God then. This is the theory of the true message of God. Some have experienced the reality of this "power" in some way, as have I.
The Qur’an has verses telling us to hear and obey Jesus and the scriptures from “aforetime” i.e. the Torah, the other 20 prophets in the Bible and the Gospels. There are some teachers of Islam and also Osama Bin Laden who said there is a Torah “that has not been changed” and the current Torah is corrupted, i.e. not fully true. This is just the opinion of some men. Both the Bible and the Qur’an are imperfect, i.e. corrupted, for they both have contradictions, and perfection should not have contradictions in it. For something as important and as mysterious as “life after death” we need to read both the books we DO have WELL and see if that “power” of God comes to us and if the message makes sense. It is your “life” at stake, do not rely on another’s interpretation of these crucial words that may bring Eternal Life or “Paradise” to you. Please read A Certain Myth, it is only a 1-3 hour read for the “baseline” understanding of what the One True Message of God really is, without the current Christian, Jewish or Muslim errors in it.
Surah 3: 47.-51. She (Mary) said: My Lord! How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me? He said: So (it will be). Allah createth what He will. if He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is. (in other words the miraculous conception by the power and word of God spoken by the Angel Gabriel, making Jesus the Son of God, as conceived by Gods power and spoken word, not by a man in the usual way) 48. And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel. 49. And will make him a messenger unto the children of Israel, (saying): Lo! I come unto you with a sign from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird, by Allah's leave. I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I raise the dead, by Allah's leave. And I announce And (I come) confirming that which was before me of the Torah, and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden unto you. I come unto you with a sign from your Lord, so keep your duty to Allah and obey me unto you what ye eat and what ye store up in your houses. Lo! herein verily is a portent for you, if ye are believers. 50. 51. Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.
You will also see on this site and in A Certain Myth, that the Qur’an agrees that Jesus is the Messiah and that he is the “Son of God” simply because it agrees that Jesus was miraculously conceived by God’s word, power and spirit and not by a man. Therefore the DNA and Chromosomes essential for a functioning embryo were provided
by God's power. You will also see that both the Qur’an AND the Bible have contradictions in them. This does not mean there is no God, but it does mean the books are not the “perfect” word of God to be followed literally in the manner some do. We have to know both books and understand the overall message.
We have to set all these teachings/words/messages “in order”. We have to set them in order.God is IN us by His words, for words are spirit that carry God’s “power” to heal now, and able also to resurrect us. We have to know ALL the words, so that we know the One True Message of God.
Know the correct words and message that brings Life and understand them. It is not meant to be a mystery anymore.
Isaiah 44: 6-8 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. 7And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. 8Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
Please challenge me if you wish, be you Jewish, Muslim or Christian. Please prove me wrong scripturally, I will welcome it, so that the world can hear the arguments for what is true or not that we teach from these books. But your challenge can be based only on the Bible and Qur’an for the Talmud, Hadiths, Catholic and other Christian writings cannot be accepted as the “inspired” word of God, for these were words spoken or written by men when they were NOT under the influence of the “Spirit” of God. If indeed any of them were, we have yet to discover this, and it can be discovered and proved by the miraculous power of God. We have to call a "truce" between the religions, perhaps for 2 or 3 years, and look into it, ALL of us.
As a separate, important and linked issue, for it is about knowledge of ourselves and the world and life. If, like me, you did not remember that much from your school education, be it due to inability, disobedience, boredom, or emotional or difficult issues at home that distracted you, then remove that “ignorance”, (which really only means “lack of knowledge”), by buying and viewing all the videos below. I speak from experience. You will have a “baseline” knowledge of what you missed at school. They are entertaining and not "heavy" and easy to watch. Try and pay attention and focus on the videos and get your friends in to view them as well, be you an adult or a teenager. Even if you are doing well at school, or just starting out as an 11 -12 year old. Ask for them as Xmas and birthday gifts. The information in them will give you a “baseline” to attach (in your mind) all the other information you will learn at school, and you will learn quicker and have better chance of retaining that learning. Watch them more than once, 2 or 3 times a year. For adults who remember very little about their school learning, then these videos will “fill you up” so you know some of the basics of the "basic" subjects/information on Life and you will not “flounder” anymore in your mind.
This really is very important. Do not flounder in life and society any more in a darkness of unknowing, know who you are as a human and where you have come from, what the world is about, how we have reached the stage we are at now. When you know it, you will realise what you have missed in not having that "Knowledge" and feel stronger mentally, spiritually and emotionally. You do not have to take notes or be tested, just watch the videos and “realise” who and what you and the world is all about. Those who are educated will not realise what it is we are missing, YOU will not realise what you are missing until you do this.
The DVD’s I recommend are mostly available from www.bbc.co.uk. Item 5 can be obtained from www.Amazon.co.uk (or the site for Amazon applicable to your country) and I list them in suggested order of priority/usefulness if you unable to buy them all at once.
