Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad, Socrates: The True Religion of Love (Part 6)
Updated: Apr 23
judgment and hellfire.: Not only is it wrong to kill, it is also wrong to get angry with others unjustifiably; hate is a destructive emotion which motivates murders. If you come to the temple altar to give a gift to God at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave the gift at the altar and go on your way, first make up with your brother, and, then, come back and offer the gift. : Our interpersonal relationships are extremely important to God-- before you try to offer God a gift, make sure you’ve made up with those in your life you have issues with. If you hurt another human being, God senses (knows) the pain. However, God cares about your true intentions, and if the intention was to help (to do good to the other person), that is not a bad thing; if the intention was to hurt, it is much worse. When you do unto others, you do (are doing) unto yourself and unto God. “God knows our hearts, our intent.” (Betty Eadie, “The Awakening Heart: My Continuing Journey to Love”, p. 51) “God knows their secret (thoughts) and their secret counsels.” (Noble Qur’an 9:78) "And when he had finished speaking, the people were amazed, for Jesus had spoken not as one of the teachers but as one having (being given) authority."
“Today, I have perfected your religion.”
“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor to you and chosen Islam as a religion.” (Qur’an 5:3)
Humility versus Arrogance
The Holy Bible and many other religious and spiritual writings write and tell about the danger of Arrogance. Being arrogant (cocky and showing off) and full of yourself is a danger. It leads to pain and failure. On the other hand, humility leads to happiness, joy, and success. When you act all “high and mighty”, you will get put down, but, if you are lowly and humble, you will be raised up and exalted. (Holy Bible - Proverbs 18:12) “Lo, everyone who lauds himself shall be abased and he who does not praise himself shall be exalted in the sight of God.” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 145:40) “He who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Jesus, Holy Bible - Matthew 23:12) “Being humble doesn’t mean being weak; it means to be strong. If you are humble, you are stronger than the strongest warrior in the world. It is humbling ourselves… loving our enemies… that will connect us with infinity.” (Betty Eadie, “The Awakening Heart: My Continuing Journey to Love”, p. 205) “Meekness and modesty are two branches of Iman(faith); and vain talking and embellishing (showing off) are two branches of hypocrisy.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #94) “God said, ‘I fulfill the faith of whosoever puts his faith in Me; and I am with him, and near him, when he remembers Me.’” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #201)
“Humility and courtesy are acts of piety.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #234)
“The arrogant will not enter Paradise, nor a violent speaker.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #356)
“That they should not let arrogance disturb their peace; that every man should esteem his neighbor [his fellow man – that is, everyone] as himself, laboring with their own hands for their support.” (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 27:4)
“The Sage… loves himself and does not exalt himself.” (Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)
“…teach them to humble themselves and to be meek and lowly in heart; teach them to withstand every temptation of the devil, with their faith on the Lord Jesus Christ. Teach them to never be weary of good works, but to be meek and lowly in heart; for such shall find rest for their souls.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 37:33-34)
“He who brags will not endure.” (Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)
“Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength, I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 26:12)
“Therefore, nobility is rooted in humility; loftiness is based on lowliness.” (Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)
The wind wears down the mountain which is lifted up. But, it fills up the lowly valley which is below. So choose to be like the lowly valley (lowly and meek).
“And now, because you are compelled to be humble, blessed are you; for a man sometimes, if he is compelled to be humble, seeks repentance; and now surely, whosoever repents shall find mercy; and he that finds mercy and endures to the end the same shall be saved.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 32:13)
“Verily, God instructs me to be humble and lowly and not arrogant; and that no one should oppress another.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #235)
“Puff yourself with … arrogance, and no one can save you from a fall.” (Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)
“To gain salvation, men must repent and keep the commandments, be born again, cleanse their garments through the blood of Christ, be humble and strip themselves of arrogance and envy, and do the works of righteousness…” (Book of Mormon, Alma 5: Summary)
Being born again is like getting a personality makeover.
“Salvation is in Christ, who is the life and the light of the world.” (Book of Mormon, Alma Chapter 38: Summary)
“But if you keep the commandments of God, and do with these things which are sacred according to that which the Lord does command you, (for you must appeal unto the Lord for all things whatsoever you must do with them) behold, no power of Earth or hell can take them from you, for God is powerful to the fulfilling of all His words.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 37:16)

“…the Son of God shall come in his glory; and his glory shall be the glory of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, equity, and truth, full of patience, mercy, and long-suffering…” [Be like this yourself.] (Book of Mormon, Alma 9:26)
“Therefore, if a man brings forth good works he hearkens unto the voice of the good shepherd [Jesus], and he does follow Him; but whosoever brings forth evil works, the same becomes a child of the devil, for he hearkens unto his voice, and does follow him.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 5:41)

“Behold, the Lord, the Lord of Hosts shall lop… the high ones of stature, and the arrogant shall be humbled.” (Book of Mormon, 2nd Nephi 20:33)
“True modesty is the source of all virtue.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #302)
“Modesty and chastity are parts of the faith.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #303)
“The reason why rivers and seas receive the homage of a hundred mountain streams is that they keep below them. Thus, they are able to reign over all the mountains streams. So the sage, wishing to be above men, puts himself below them; wishing to be before them, he puts himself behind them. Thus, though his place be above men, they do not feel his weight; and, though his place be before them, they do not count it an injury.” – Lao-Tsu, Taoism
When you are deciding a case between two people, be Just and fair(Holy Bible - Proverbs 1:3). Don’t show favoritism or partiality to the poor or to the rich(Holy Bible - Leviticus 19:15). Don’t go along with the crowd when they are in the wrong or doing wrong. (Holy Bible - Exodus 23:12) Don’t be unjust or unfair. Treat your fellow man (that is, everyone) fairly. (Holy Bible - Exodus 23:6 and Holy Bible - Deuteronomy 16:20)
“Treat others with justice and respect. In the long run, how you treat others will be how they treat you.” -- Buddhism

Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all of your acts." – Bahá’u’lláh, Baha’i Religion

Judging Others and Forgiveness
Do not judge others or condemn them. Instead, forgive them and be kind, tenderhearted, and compassionate toward them. If you forgive others when they sin against you, God will forgive your sins. (Holy Bible - Matthew 6:14-15 & Holy Bible - Matthew 7:1-2 & Holy Bible – Mark:25-26)
“...and you should forgive And overlook: Do you not like God to forgive you? And Allah is The Merciful Forgiving.”
You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against your family. Love your neighbor [your fellow man – that is, everyone] as yourself: I am the LORD. — Holy Bible - Leviticus 19:18
“Judge not that you be not judged.” – (Holy Bible - Jesus Christ -- Matthew 7:1)
“If you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Holy Bible – Mark 11:25-26 and Holy Bible, Matthew 7:1-2 and Matthew 6:14-15)

“[He] who forgives accepts repentance.” (Noble Qur’an 40:3)
Yea, and as often as my people repent will I forgive them their trespasses against me.

“Thus says the Lord, ‘Verily, those who are patient in adversity and forgive wrongs are the doers of excellence.’” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #191)
The Right Hand Path
This book teaches the way that is known as the “right-hand” path. The Right hand path is the path of loving your fellow man (that is, everyone) -- the path of traditional ethics and morals. (By the way, just because it is the ethical tradition does not mean that it has traditionally been kept and lived by most people.) In America, these are called ‘Christian values’ although they are not unique to Christianity – Islam, Buddhism, Zoroasterianism, and other religions also teach these very same values. It can be contrasted with the path of the left hand which is Satanism. Trust me, you don’t want to get involved in Satanism (like I have, in the past). Satanism is not a joke. It will only hurt you and others. “…if any take the Evil One for their intimate, what a dreadful intimate he is!” – (Noble Qur’an 4:38) If you have been involved in Satanism, you need to repent and turn to God, and God will help you. Even if you have given 99% of yourself to Satan, you can still turn things around with the 1% that you still have left. The right hand path has been taught by men such as Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammad and its principles are taught by their religions(the “white light” Golden Rule religions of light and love): Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam.
In a sense, there is only one true religion – Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity are like different versions of it.
“Let children learn that the basis of all religions – Muslim, Hindu, Catholic, Baptist, Jewish, New Testament, Old Testament, it does not matter – every religion comes down to the same word, and that word is the strongest four-letter word. It is love, and that is the commonality among all of us.” – Andrew Cuomo (New York Governor)
“This is really the practice at the core of all the world’s religions – love.” – (Dalai Lama, The Book of Joy)
Islam is the ‘brother’ religion of Christianity. Christianity is the ‘sister’ religion of Islam. Both are ‘child’ religions of Judaism – the world’s first monotheistic (one God) religion. All 3 are the so-called “Abrahamic” religions – that is, they trace their roots back to the patriarch Abraham.
“If you don’t forsake the straight path of righteousness, you will become a Buddha.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” VII.14)
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.” (Holy Bible - Matthew 25:31-33)
“…neither has he a shadow of turning from the right to the left, or from that which is right to that which is wrong.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 7:20)
“If any one does evil or wrongs his own soul but afterwards seeks God’s forgiveness, he will find God often-forgiving and Most Merciful.” -- (Noble Qur’an 4:110)
“I am (also) He that forgives again and again, to those who repent, believe, and do right.” (Noble Qur’an 20:82)
In America, these values are called Christian values. But, they are not unique to Christianity.
“And you shall be sorted out into three classes. Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand … and the Companions of the Left Hand.” (Noble Qur’an 56:7 - 9)
“…if he be of those nearest to God, (There is for him) rest and satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights. And if he be of the Companions of the Right hand, for him is the salutation, “Peace be with you” / “Peace be unto you” (Salaam Alaikum), from the Companions of the Right Hand.” (Noble Qur’an 57:90-91)
“…your Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind…” (Noble Qur’an 13:6)
“It is freeing the slave; or giving of food in a day of privation to the orphan with claims of relationship or to the poor down in the dust. Then he will be of those who believe and enjoin patience (constancy and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. Such are the companions of the Right Hand. But those who reject our signs, they are the (unhappy) companions of the left hand.” (Noble Qur’an 90:13-19)
“[The Buddha] has given up his kingdom, and has found the path of righteousness, thus setting [us] an example.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XXIII:13)
This book contains the ‘fullness’ of the gospel. The four traditional gospels in the Holy Bible are Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Some people define (interpret) the word “Gospel” as meaning “good news” (or ‘evangelion’ in Greek). I believe that the word ‘Gospel’ comes from the Middle English “God Spell”. The idea is that it is as if God casts a spell on you when you read them or hear them that makes you love Him more, live His values, be kinder, be gentler, be happier, increase your faith, and love other people more. “We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and we ordained in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy.” (Noble Qur’an 57:27)
“Jesus, the son of Mary, said: O children of Israel! I am the Messenger of God (sent) to you, confirming the Mosaic Law (which came) before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me whose name shall be Ahmad (the praised one).” (Noble Qur’an 61:6)
Holy Bible – Jesus - Matthew 5:17: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
If you live the teachings in this book and/or in the Holy Bible (or the Noble Qur’an or other spiritual/inspirational writings such as Near-Death experience literature or New Age literature – I recommend some good books later in this book), you will attain success in your endeavors. (God will bless you) (Holy Bible - Leviticus Chapter 26 and Holy Bible - Deuteronomy Chapter 28)
“Successful indeed are the believers – Those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk (showing off); who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from unlawful/illicit sex.” (Noble Qur’an 23:1-5)
“The Plans of the diligent surely lead to success.” (Holy Bible – Proverbs 21:5)
Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. (Holy Bible – Proverbs 10:4)
“Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, kindness, and wholesome recreational activities.” (The Family – A Proclamation to the World, Mormonism)
“If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land…” (Holy Bible, Isaiah 1:19)
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” (Holy Bible – Psalm 37:3-4)
“He whose intentions are righteousness and justice, will meet with no failure, but be successful in his enterprises and his success will endure.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LI.28)
“O Lord, will you comfort my soul, and give unto me success?” (Book of Mormon, Alma 31:32)
“Inasmuch as you shall keep the commandments of God, you shall prosper in the land.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 38:1)
“…if they were faithful in keeping the commandments of God, … he would prosper them in the land…” (Book of Mormon, Alma 48:15)
“Inasmuch as you shall keep my commandments, you will prosper in the land.” (Book of Mormon, 2nd Nephi 4:4 & Jarom 1:9 & Alma 9:13)
“And even I myself have labored with all the power and faculties which I have possessed, to teach you the commandments of God, and to establish peace throughout the land, that there should be no wars nor contentions, no stealing, nor plundering, nor murdering, nor any manner of evil…” (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 29:14)
“And now, because of the steadiness of the church they began to be exceedingly rich, having abundance of all things whatsoever they stood in need—an abundance of flocks and herds, and fatlings of every kind, and also abundance of grain, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious things, and abundance of silk and fine-twined linen, and all manner of good homely cloth. And thus, in their prosperous circumstances, they did not send away any who were naked, or that were hungry, or that were thirsty, or that were sick, or that had not been nourished; and they did not set their hearts upon riches; therefore they were liberal (generous) to all, both old and young, both slave and free, both male and female, whether out of the church or in the church, having no respect to persons as to those who stood in need. And thus they did prosper and become far more wealthy than those who did not belong to their church.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 1:29-31)
“…the homes of the upright – how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth and a generosity that never runs dry. Sunrise breaks through the darkness for good people – God’s grace and mercy and justice! The good person is generous and lends lavishly…” (The Message Bible - Psalm 112:3-6)
Happiness in life
Some self-help gurus and books suggest that you can become happy by making up your mind to or controlling your bodily movements in some way. I have found that the path to happiness is to choose to be good, kind, compassionate, and loving towards others in thought, word, and deed. You can become happy by choosing to be good instead of being hurtful, mean, wicked, evil, or bad. More people will like you and love you. Also, you will like yourself more. Happiness and success will then follow.
You can’t always choose happiness, but you can choose goodness instead of evil (badness/meanness), and, if you do that, you will arrive at and attain happiness.
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” – (Holy Bible - Proverbs 17:22)
“Be good to your good people.” (The Message Bible - Psalm 125:5)
“A compassionate concern for others’ well-being is the source of happiness.” – (Dalai Lama, The Book of Joy)
“In fact, taking care of others, helping others, ultimately is the way to discover your own joy and to have a happy life.” – (Dalai Lama, The Book of Joy)
“I have tried to make people aware that the ultimate source of happiness is simply a healthy body and a warm heart.” – (Dalai Lama, The Book of Joy)
“…to make one happy…” (Book of Mormon, 1st Nephi 8:10)
God’s Kingdom (Kingdom of God)
In a traditional Earthly kingdom, the King makes the law and owns everyone and everything. The King rules the Lords who rule the people. The King/Lord is the “mighty powerful owner”. Here in the United States, we have a constitution which is the law of the land. God is the king over all the Earth (and heaven) – the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” The Earth is His (God’s) kingdom. God’s law for the Earth is the Torah – (The “Books of Moses” from Genesis through Deuteronomy in the Holy Bible). A transgression of God’s law is called a ‘sin’. A good deed is a “Mitzvah”. The Prophets are God’s servants, and Jesus is His son. Jesus was (is) the ‘Crown Prince’. The Jews (and all other Israelites) are called upon to be a nation of Prophets. Jerusalem is God’s holy capitol city.
Many kings in ancient times were lifted up on their thrones; Jesus’ throne was the cross on which he was lifted up. Kings had crowns; Jesus had a crown of thorns – thorns only came into being after Adam and Eve transgressed by eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden – they were not part of the original creation. Kings would sometimes ride and walk out in the cities in their kingdom; Jesus walked out carrying the cross. Many people (multitudes) came out to see the king often to cheer him; Multitudes (a mob) came out to jeer and shout out and demand that Jesus be crucified. When Pilate asked the crowd, “Shall I release ‘the king of the Jews’?” (Holy Bible – John 18:39) (the king of the Jews is Jesus), the crowd cried out “We have no king but Caeser.” (Holy Bible – John 19:15) For a Jew to say, “I have no king but Caeser” is the ultimate rejection of God. Jesus was murdered on a trumped up charge of blasphemy like a criminal. The forces of darkness brought Jesus to the Cross not knowing that it would bring the world to his feet. “And as I am lifted up from the Earth, I will draw all to myself” – (Holy Bible – John 12:32). Jesus is the “King of the Jews” – “Melech Ha’Yehudim”. For, “Salvation is of the Jews.” (Holy Bible, John 4:22)
Help and love your enemies
Help your enemies, love them, and do good to them. “…the goodness of God…” (Book of Mormon, 1st Nephi 5:4) The law of the Torah in the Holy Bible says “If you see your enemy’s ox or donkey fallen down on the road, do not ignore it, help him with it – do your best to help your enemy.” (Holy Bible - Exodus 23:5) Jesus taught, demonstrated, and said to “love your enemies.” (Holy Bible - Matthew 5:44)
“Christ taught peaceful values, such as building up of a good character, loving each other, helping the poor and needy, etc. The same is true of the Noble Qur’an.” (Introduction to the Noble Qur’an by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan and Farida Khanam)
“…through the infinite goodness of God…” (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 5:3)
“Follow me… can we follow Jesus save we shall be willing to keep the commandments of the Father? And the Father said: Repent, repent, and be baptized in the name of my beloved son.” (Book of Mormon, 2nd Nephi 31:10-11)
“…if you have come to a knowledge of the goodness of God, and his matchless power, and his wisdom, and his patience, and his long-suffering towards the children of men.” (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 4:6)
“He who helps his fellow creature in the hour of need, and he who helps the oppressed, him will God help in the Day of difficulty. (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #248)
Have a Daily Spiritual Practice
Every day, pray, meditate, and/or read from the Holy Bible or other spiritual books such as this one or the Noble Qur’an(or spiritual websites like www.near-death.com or www.EmbracedByTheLight.com or from my website: www.hadar123.com). For example, I spend at least between a half-an-hour to as much as 3 or 4 hours a day reading the Holy Bible (or other spiritual books such as this one). When you do this, you are, in a sense, “programming” or “feeding” your brain with the right messages leading toward love, goodness, and happiness. This is also referred to as “sharpening the saw” (from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey – Habit #7) –- (a sharp saw makes it easier to perform well, do well intelligently, and do the right thing in the same sense that it is easier to cut a tree (or anything else) with a sharper saw) because it means making yourself into a better, more successful, kinder person, and it is as if you are “programming your mind for goodness – for doing the right thing”. In an average day, we are exposed to many different messages (e.g. on Television, Radio, books, in the newspaper, internet, other people, etc.). In order to maintain our goodness, reading books like the Holy Bible or other right-hand path literature (spiritual and inspirational – Like this book – daily – Holy Bible - Psalm 1:2-3: “…his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.3 He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season…”) reminds us of how to behave to be good, successful, and happy. “We must be selective about which books/newspapers/magazines we read, what radio and music we listen to, what television shows and videos we watch, which internet websites we visit.” – in other words, be careful about what you feed your mind (you may want to read this book over and over again in order to “Program” your mind with good messages) (Knowledge That Leads to Everlasting Life – Jehovah’s Witnesses). The more good stuff you put in, the more good stuff will come out. Religion and religious/spiritual literature (such as New Age literature or Near-Death experience literature (an excellent, fabulous, marvelous website is www.near-death.com), for example) is unique in promulgating (promoting/fostering) values like goodness, love, kindness, and compassion. As an example of meditation, Jesus would often withdraw to a mountaintop to be alone and to meditate and pray for hours at a time during his ministry – especially early in the morning (Holy Bible - Mark 1:35). You may want to read and re-read this book often in order to “program” or “feed” yourself with the messages leading to joy, goodness, happiness, and success.
If you keep putting good stuff in (in your mind, like reading spiritual books – studying, learning, reading) eventually good stuff will start coming out of you. Conversely, if you keep putting good stuff out (goodness to others), good stuff will come back in toward you from others.
Teach The Way of Goodness
“Receive the good law of truth, read and reread it, fathom it, promulgate and promote it, and preach it to all beings in all the quarters of the universe.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XLVII.19) “I will not experience final Nirvana (Nibbana - Bliss/heavenliness) until I have disciples who are knowers of the Dharma (Dhamma) and who will pass on what they have gained from their Teacher, declare it, and teach the Dharma (Dhamma) of wondrous effect.” (Buddha – Digha Nikaya 16.3.7) “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Holy Bible - Mark 16:15) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.” (Holy Bible - Acts 1:8)
Money -- Giving to the Poor (Tithing)
The word Tithe means one tenth. We are called upon to give at least one tenth of our income/wealth/our money to the poor. That is one tenth of our gross (that is - not net—in other words, 1/10th of your income before taxes) income. With regards to tithes and offerings is the one place in the Holy Bible (Holy Bible - Malachi 3:10) where God tells us to go ahead and test him and see how much wealth he will give you in return for being generous with the poor without letting others(anyone else) know about it. If you tell others about it, God won’t reward you as much for it (Holy Bible, Matthew 6:1). Og Mandino, in the book “The Greatest Salesman Who Ever Lived”, said to give 50% of your money to charity and/or to those less fortunate. Some even “reverse-tithe” – that is, they give 90% of their money to the poor/charity.
“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; 10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” (Holy Bible, Proverbs 3:9-10)
Give and you will receive (Holy Bible - Proverbs 11:25 “refreshed”, Holy Bible - Luke 6:38: “Give, and it will be given to you: Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will men give unto you. For with the measure you use, it will be measured unto you.” and Holy Bible - Malachi 3:10: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”).
The time to start Tithing is now. If you’re not going to give 10 cents out of a dollar, then you’re most likely not going to give $100,000 out of a million.
Holy Bible - Luke 6:38 : “Give, and it will be given to you: Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will men give unto you. For with the measure you use, it will be measured unto you.”
You can tithe and create your own bastion of justice, fairness, and economic (financial) success/abundance.
“Overcome stinginess/miserliness by generosity.” – Buddha
“Whatever good you give, shall be rendered back unto you, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly.” (Noble Qur’an 2:272)
“If you knew about the power of a generous heart, you would not let a single meal pass without giving to others.” -- Buddha
“So give what is due to kindred(family), the needy, and the stranger.” (Noble Qur’an 30:38)
“It is not life and wealth and power that enslave men, but the cleaving (clinging/desiring/attaching) to life and wealth and power.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XXIII:16)
“When it comes to kindness, paying it forward, and good deeds, every day should be like Christmas.” ― Brenda Priddy
“Let us live happily, then, free from greed among the greedy! Among men who are greedy, let us dwell free from greed.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XLVIII.54)
“For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” [Amass treasures in heaven by doing good.] (Holy Bible - Matthew 6:21)
“To those of your servants who please you, give to eat what you eat yourself; and clothe them as yourself; but those who do not please you, part with them; and punish not God’s creatures.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #389)
“The world and all things in it are valuable; but the most valuable thing in the world is a virtuous woman.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #420)
“The best women are the virtuous; they are the most affectionate to infants, and the most careful of their husband’s property.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #421)
“When a woman performs the five times of prayer, and fasts the holy month of Ramadan, and is chaste, and is not disobedient to her husband, then tell her to enter Paradise by whichever door she likes.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #422)
“He will not enter Paradise who behaves badly to his slaves. The companions said, “O Apostle of God! Have you not told us that there will be a great many slaves and orphans among your disciples?” He said, “Yes, then be kind to them as to your own children, and give them to eat of what you eat yourselves. The slaves who say their prayers are your brothers.”” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #390)
You should not have sex with anyone but your wife/husband. With regards to sex, you should either be a virgin or be married. In other words, the number of people you should have sex with should be either 1 or 0 (unless you are widowed or polygamous). If you have been promiscuous, you need to repent and change your ways. If you are unmarried, you should be a virgin and stay a virgin until you get married. If you are married, you should only be with your marriage partner (your spouse). Never have an abortion. Abortion is wrong! It is murder!
According to the Buddha, life begins at conception or very soon after, and so, to abort a fetus would be to take a life. A child conceived as the result of a rape is as entitled to live and be loved as any other child. – Buddhism
“Do not kill your children for fear of want. We shall provide sustenance for them and for you.” (Noble Qur’an 17:31)
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” (Holy Bible - Hebrews 13:4)
“Women are the twin-halves (soulmates) of men.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #419 and Plato’s Symposium)
(Just because something doesn’t happen in this life on Earth doesn’t mean it isn’t meant to be.) In heaven, you’ll be with your soulmate. That’s why there’s no need for marriage in heaven. Some angels are one with their soulmates. (Holy Bible – Matthew 22:30)
Christianity is the religion with the most followers in the world. There are over 2 billion Christians -- about a billion Catholics and a billion Protestants as well as other churches such as the Orthodox churches (there are some 250 million Orthodox Christians). Christianity is centered around the person of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. Since ‘Christ’ means ‘Messiah’ (“Meshiach”), Christianity means “Messiahnism” (or “Meshiachism”). Jesus lived a perfect life without ever sinning. Christianity encourages Christians to imitate Him by loving others and being kind and good. Christians are also motivated by the words of Jesus in the Holy Bible. For example, Jesus taught us to love everyone, even our enemies (Holy Bible - Matthew 5:43 – 48) and do good unto them as well as to give to the poor. (Holy Bible - Matthew 19:21 and Holy Bible – Luke 12:33) In addition, Christianity includes, in the Holy Bible, the old testament of Judaism – The Hebrew Bible. The two greatest commandments of Christianity and Jesus are “Love your neighbor” ((Holy Bible - Matthew 22:39 and Holy Bible – Leviticus 19:18) in other words, love your brother / fellow man—love all) and “Love God” (Holy Bible - Matthew 22:37 and Holy Bible - Deuteronomy 6:5). “Do you love the Lord your God with all your heart and do you love your neighbor [your fellow man – that is, everyone] as you love yourself?” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 179:12) “‘God is one, and there is no other than He’; and this loving Him with one’s whole heart and with one’s whole understanding and with one’s whole strength and this loving one’s neighbor [one’s fellow man – that is, everyone] as oneself is worth far more than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (Holy Bible - Mark 12:28-31 and “The Greatest Man who ever lived”, Jehovah’s Witnesses) Jesus taught, showed, and demonstrated that love and mercy overcome hate and anger.
Islam is the world’s second largest religion with over 1 billion adherents. Followers of Islam (those who submit themselves to do God’s will) are known as “Muslims”. Islam means: ‘peace through submission to God and His teachings’. The word ‘Muslim’ means: one who surrenders to the will of God. There are two main branches of Islam: Sunni and Shiite. Muslims are called upon to follow God by doing good (for example, helping an orphan) and to treat people well. Following the example of Mohammad is one way of being a good Muslim (Mohammad’s examples and teachings are given in the Sunnah and Hadeeth). Mohammad (an orphan himself) was (and is) a very humble, gentle, kind, honest, meek, and good man. Strive to be the same way yourself. Muslim teachings say that there have been 5 major spiritual revelations from God from 5 different men: One – the first -- is the Book of Abraham(in the dead sea scrolls), the second is the Jewish / Christian Torah (the first 5 books of the Holy Bible (The “Books of Moses” - from Genesis through Deuteronomy)– called the ‘Tawrat’ in Islam – “We gave Moses the scripture and the criterion (between right and wrong) -- which was brought forth by Moses”), the third is the Psalms (the Bible book brought forth partially by King David), and the fourth is the Gospels of Jesus (called ‘injil’ in Arabic). The fifth and final revelation was brought forth by Mohammad (peace upon him) and is the Noble Koran (Noble Qur’an). “And this is a Book which we have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that you may receive mercy…” (Noble Qur’an 6:155) The Noble Qur’an can be thought of as the “Muslim Bible” (It contains many of the same stories as the Holy Bible). The word “Qur’an” means “reading” (from the Hebrew words ‘Liqro’ – “To read”, ‘Tiqra’ – “Read”, ‘Taqri’ – “Recite” and the Arabic words ‘Iqra’ – ‘read’ or ‘recite’ and “qara’a” which means “he collected things together” and also “he read” or “he recited”). “…the Noble Qur’an was sent down as a guide to mankind… for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong).” (Noble Qur’an 2:185) Reading the Koran (Noble Qur’an) in Arabic and giving to the poor is also encouraged. The 5 pillars of Islam are the 5 things every Muslim must strive to do:
1. Shahadah – Declaration of faith. (Saying “There is no ‘god’ but Allah (there is no ‘god’ but the One God), and Mohammad is his messenger.”)
2. Salat – saying prayer to Allah(God) -- Prayer 5 times a
3. Fasting and self-control during the holy month
4. Zakah -- Giving money to the poor.
5. Perform Hajj – Visit the Kabaa in Mecca at least once in
I [God/Prophet] and the guardian of orphans (whether the orphan be of his near or distant relations, or of strangers) will be in one place in the next world; like my two fingers, nearly touching each other. (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #334)
“The same religion He has established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah—that which We have sent by inspiration to you—and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus; namely that you should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein …” – Noble Qur’an 42:13
“The Noble Qur’an was revealed not only to distinguish Islam as a separate religion, but the revelation of God came as the final message that embodies a universal message for people of all times.” (Introduction to the Noble Qur’an by Abdullah Yusuf Ali)
“The best Muslim house is that in which is an orphan, who is benefited; and the worst Muslim house is that in which is an orphan who is ill-treated.”(“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #335)
“…the men of faith. Each one (of them) believes in God, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers.” (Noble Qur’an 2:285)
Islamic quotes and teachings:
Spirituality in Islam is about nurturing tolerance, kindness, self-control, righteousness, and forgiveness while shunning arrogance, an overly selfish ego, anger, and selfishness. – Islam
A foundational message in the Noble Qur’an is its emphasis on righteous conduct built on firm belief and love for God. – Islam

Islam teaches that the merit of a person’s action depends on the intention (the intent – whether good or bad). Muslims believe that God looks at people’s hearts, not just their physical deeds.
In order to guide human beings to His worship and to truly differentiate between good and evil, God sent prophets as teachers and role models. He also revealed holy scriptures which provide us with knowledge directly from God and serve as manuals for virtuous living. The combination of prophetic examples, prophetic teachings, and divine scriptures (such as Holy Bible & Noble Qur’an) reinforces our moral inclinations and equips us with the knowledge to discern between right and wrong. They also provide us with the criteria which enable us to assess our motives and deeds. Above all, they teach us how to worship God and how to lead a life that pleases Him.
“…this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil)…” (Noble Qur’an 86:13)
“… that which has been revealed to you from your Lord is the Truth, but most men do not believe.” (Noble Qur’an 13:1)

A famous prophetic tradition states, ‘Genuine smiling is charity’. – Islam

“Those who receive good guidance, do so for the good of their own souls.” (Noble Qur’an 11:108)
“Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (Noble Qur’an 2:277)
“If any do deeds of righteousness, they will enter heaven (infinite heaven / infinite light), and not the least injustice will be done to them.” – (Noble Qur’an 4:124)

“Those who believe (in the Noble Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians (the people of the book) - any who believe in Allah(God) and the Last Day(Judgment Day), and work righteousness - on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” – Noble Qur’an 5:69

(Men have all these same rights as well.)
I am totally against the idea that a Muslim woman should not have the same opportunities as a Muslim man to learn, to open up, to work, and to help shape the future. To close Islam down to a sexist approach is totally intolerable and ridiculous. It's not Islam. -- King Hussein I

Buddhism was founded by the Buddha about 2600 years ago. It is the fourth largest religion in the world. There are about 488 million Buddhists in the world today. After his enlightenment, the Buddha had compassion and unselfish love for every person (and creature) he met. ‘The Buddha’ means ‘the awakened one’ or ‘the enlightened one’. Since ‘the Buddha’ means “the enlightened one”, ‘Buddhism’ means ‘the way of enlightenment’. Imitating the way of life of the Buddha is one thing some Buddhists strive for. One of the goals and teachings of Buddhism is to let go of selfish attachments to things and people. The Four Noble Truths of Buddhism are:
1. The Truth that Suffering exists in life.
2. Selfish Desire (craving and attachment) creates the suffering.
3. Ending selfish desire brings an end to the suffering.
4. The Eight-Fold path to ending selfish desire(also known as the ‘middle path’ of moderation between over-indulgence and total abstinence and deprivation):
1. Right View (Understanding the four noble truths)
2. Good Intentions (Having good and kind intentions of helping others and making them happy)
3. Noble Speech (Kind, honest, noble, and good words, not lying, not gossiping, not saying anything rude or malicious, speaking gentle and useful truths, no slander(lying and/or saying untrue and bad things about others) or mocking or backbiting)
4. Good Actions (i.e. acting out of compassion and love)
5. Right Livelihood (Selling products at fair prices, delivering (making good) on your promises, not working in a job related to the military, not charging interest(usury), not lying, defrauding, or cheating in business, not making or selling alcohol, drugs, or cigarettes, not butchering or killing animals, no prostitution, not committing crime, not ...
