Some of the verses in the Qur'an about the other abrahamic religions.
لَتَجِدَنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا ۖ وَلَتَجِدَنَّ أَقْرَبَهُم مَّوَدَّةً لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّا نَصَارَىٰ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ مِنْهُمْ قِسِّيسِينَ وَرُهْبَانًا وَأَنَّهُمْ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ - 5:82
You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah ; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.
لَيْسُوا سَوَاءً ۗ مِّنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ أُمَّةٌ قَائِمَةٌ يَتْلُونَ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ وَهُمْ يَسْجُدُونَ - 3:113
يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَأُولَٰئِكَ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ - 3:114
وَمَا يَفْعَلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَلَن يُكْفَرُوهُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِالْمُتَّقِينَ - 3:115
They are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer].
They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and hasten to good deeds. And those are among the righteous.
And whatever good they do - never will it be removed from them. And Allah is Knowing of the righteous.
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالنَّصَارَىٰ وَالصَّابِئِينَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ - 2:62
Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] - those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
Do you tremble at God’s holy word?
Question - How do we study the works of the Lord?
Answer - Reading the Bible, going to Church and sitting under the preached Word. Observing God’s work in providence and in nature.

Praise the Lord 🙏
“CHRISTIANS ARE JUST GOD STANS AND THE BIBLE IS JUST A WATTPAD SMUT FIC” ~Kaitlyn, one of my roommates
I was raised non-denominal christian but I’m looking at the denominations and Episcopalians n Anglicans… :]] i am llooking
It’s been awhile since I’ve last shared anything and I wanted to touch base as to why I’ve been MIA.
I’ve been struggling with my chronic daily headaches, and migraines whenever they appear and it’s really hard to live with.
I’ve been focusing on transitioning back into taking online classes - which I hate.
I’ve had really bad writer’s block for quite some time now.
I’ve debated back and forth every day on whether or not the decisions I’m making in my life are solely focused around me or to please others.
I’ve spent a lot of time leading up to the 2020 election, which has forced me to do some research of my own and all the while, teach myself how to ignore any hatred I may get for having my political views.
I started a new job recently and I’m feeling more than blessed for that opportunity. It’s taken most of my attention since starting.
I’ve just been busy. It’s been immensely crazy trying to write on top of everything else and I hate myself for not only taking a step back from writing, but for putting my relationship with God on the back burner as well.
Being an adult is so difficult but I want the person reading this to know that things will get better, maybe not right away, but in time. I have to believe that, not only for myself, but for everyone else as well.
As my title states above, the poet is now born.
I have exciting news. After 14 weeks in hospital (excluding 6 days out) we are looking at discharge next week. It’s been a long road to get to this point with many emotional breakdowns, MET calls, abandonment of my study and being left to face all that I was running from.
I have had medication changes that are really helping but find most of my difficulty sometimes around food but in the emotional incredible highs and awful debilitating lows which has become a Cyclothymia/Bipolar Affective Disorder diagnosis to add to the list.
I now have a DBT group every week and regular psychology.
I have no idea of what lies ahead but I’m ready for the adventure 💕🦋🏳️🌈
I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.
Philippians 4:12-13 TPT
Martyrdom of Saint George
- Hans Rottenhammer
I wanna be someone who reminds you that God’s love is real.
In the rare event I get a headache I seriously want to cry my eyes out for all of you constant migraine sufferers. My migraine is one long prayer for all of you. I don’t know how you can so much as open your eyes or walk or even breathe you are all incredibly strong.
The inestimable value of the tried faith
Whenever you dare to step into your life of faith, you will discover something in your circumstances that, from a rational perspective, will directly contradict your faith. But reason does not mean faith, and faith does not mean reason. In fact, the two are as different as the natural and the spiritual life.
Can you trust Jesus Christ where your reason cannot trust Him? Can you walk boldly in the words of Jesus Christ as the realities of your rational life continue to cry out, “Everything is just a lie”?
When you are on the mountain, it is easy to say, “Oh, yes, I believe God can do this,” but you must descend from the mountain into the valley possessed by demons and face the realities that mock your faith on The Mountain of Transfiguration.
Whenever my theology becomes clear to my mind, I run into something that contradicts it. As soon as I say, “I think God is taking care of <<all my needs>>, the testing of my faith begins.
When I am exhausted and my vision is dark, will I triumphantly endure this test of my faith or will I give up?
Faith must be tested because it can become your precious good only through conflict. What puts your faith to the test right now? Testing will either prove that you have the right faith, or it will kill your faith. Jesus said, "And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” (Matthew 11:6). The ultimate thing is trust in Jesus. "For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,” (Hebrews 3:14). Believe in Him steadfastly, and all the trials that come upon you will strengthen your faith. The life of faith is constantly put to the test until the end of our physical life, which is the last great test. Faith means absolute trust in God - a trust that could never have imagined that He would leave us. (Hebrews 13: 5-6)
