Complex and self-justifying

complex

It makes holistic sense to the person who sees themselves as one among a great number of ‘beings’, and who finds themselves confronted by plurality of ‘powers’.

Such a view of reality seems far removed from the world of formal Islamic faith. We have discovered an unusual kind of ‘Islam’!

Of course, the world of official faith is most advertised as Muslims relate to the world around them.  However, within ‘Christian’ communities, they mirror many of the religious experiences I have described in this blog.

The aim was to try to describe and explain subject matters of formal and unofficial religious belief and practice, as they apply to theistic faiths.  Out of such explanation will arise a clearer understanding of what’s meant by ‘official’ and ‘popular’ Islam.

Of course, it is always good to bounce these off of your friends from the Middle East and North Africa.

 

 

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
