Expect no saviours – because there are none

There are no external saviours, not in the original Jewish scriptures nor in the Quran.

God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.

There is only one way to head off what’s coming, and that is do to what the Quran tells us to do: to warn the elite in order to make them eligible for the punishments of God.

That is the Quranic model.

Sectarian Islam is not in the Qur’an

The religion which the media and the Traditionalist calls Islam is not in the Qur’an. All definitions come from the Hadith literature.

This would be fine if the Traditionalist admitted as much, but he doesn’t. He conflates a religion which has its origins elsewhere with a revelation which God has given to mankind.

And this is important since the West is now importing this religion wholesale into countries with an entirely different tradition.

The Companions of the Cave in the Quran DECODED

The Traditionalist’s reading of the story of the companions of the cave in the Qur’an (chapter 18) suffers like so much of his presentation: it requires one to assumes his conclusions and accept his values imported from elsewhere – and the result is a bit of a mess.

In this lesson, I go through – step by step – the verses identifying Qur’anic mechanisms en route to elucidating both the meaning and the import of this important story. The result is that we are all called upon to stand up – not for a religion – but for God alone, and that the imperative to warn our communities against idolatry is for all believers, not just prophets.

Human archetypes: key personality types defined by the Quran

This is a study in some detail of verses 1:1-2:20 of the Quran; it gives you an introduction to some part of my hermeneutical method.

The second chapter of the Qur’an opens with precise definitions of the key character types one finds in life. The Traditionalist has missed this because he comes to the Quran with his definitions taken from elsewhere.

But once we learn how Quranic definitions work, we readily see – and can learn to benefit from recognising – the core types we meet in life: key personality types according to Quranic definitions.

Repentance means turning back to God

This is in response to the many questions I get about repentance, especially fornication and a past spent in sinful activities.

Just because you led a sinful life in the past or made mistakes doesn’t mean you are defined by those mistakes forever. Look at Moses: he killed a man.

Repentance is a personal decision to turn back to God; to stand alone and do what is right; to stand upon scripture and the laws which God gave us to follow no matter how the world responds to that.

I want to make a difference

This is a general answer to all those who write and ask me: what can I do to help.

That depends on what your talents are and how much you want to contribute. But we can all make a difference.

I don’t know about you, but I want to feel like my life makes a difference. When I die, I want to know that I did my duty. Not everyone can do what I am doing, but everyone who wants to help can get involved.
