A letter to K, a New Age apologist for Islam, though he denies that he is an apologist, while simultaneously denying the facts about Mohammad’s insatiable sexual lust, the violence of “The Prophet’s” life, and the violence embedded in Koran.
I am trying to figure out how to proceed with you K.
You are not a seeker that I can recognize. I sat three feet from you and let you know some other entities were present, and you weren’t curious. You appear to me to be a collector of comfortable self-stroking beliefs, and programmed to think this is divine work, while being blocked off to the unexpected. That is, you live in a concrete bubble of studied world view. The concrete is made of ideas.
I have reviewed below, your suggested reading, the excerpt from Norman Brown’s The Prophetic Tradition, found online.
I would like to point out the arrogance and globalist prejudice within the sentences I found below.
Before I highlight these sentences, I will point out that the title of his book excludes prophecy in thousands of other cultures which have nothing to do with the Mid East or it’s ugly story about Adam in Genesis. His title “THE prophetic tradition” announces that there is only one true lineage of prophecy. Only one. His.
Just by the title, I would never open such a book.
“ it is to recover the prophetic sense of the unity of world history”
“The human race needs [one] Divine instruction and admonition; the human race like sheep is prone to stray and is brought back to the right path by another manifestation of the one true voice of prophecy.”
“…. the one true prophet, form age to age, from the beginning of the world; Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Christ, Muhammad….”
“Islam represents a return to the original Mosaic theocratic or theopolitical idea. The Kingdom of God is a real Kingdom on earth. The dualism between temporal and spiritual regimen is rejected; the concessions to Caesar (or Constantine) are abrogated. Prophetic revelation has to replace Roman law with its own law: “The Law, which is the constitution of the Community, cannot be other than the Will of God, revealed through the Prophet.”
“The Prophetic movement then has to be a political revolution [against what is natural and diverse]: Muhammed is the prophet armed. Islam committed by the Hegira and the take over of Medina to the seizure of power. At the same time the Mosaic theocratic idea is freed from its national (ethnic) limitations and given new and revolutionary content as a program for instituting theocratic world-government.
[Excuse me, barf]
“The glorious idealism of Dante’s De Monarchia, Book I, is pure Islam; “Of all things ordained by our happiness, the greatest is [the impossible] universal peace [impossible universal stasis]”; ….. [See my article on this]
He ends paragraph….
“Muhammed toward the end of his life called on the empires of the world to submit to the rule of God. Prophet against Empire, but Prophet Armed.”
Well, so much for the “religion of peace.”
I need not review this globalist monotheistic unnatural hegemonic work further. Pure puke.
And this is what you recommended for me to read to give me a true understanding of Islam! Indeed, it did do that.
