What?

How exactly is Islam and Christianity one voice when they both say different things about a central character named Jesus. That is like me saying Libertarians and Communists are one voice, because they all have political opinions.

We are all brothers and sisters

we walk on the bridge to God -- the bridge's name is Love.

Catholic Spinner here

From approximately 1991 to 1995 the Grateful Dead, an American rock band, had a very small percentage of fans who termed themselves as "spinners", who would spin similar to dervish spinning to the band's music.

When I could no longer surf, I turned to spinning with the Dead and people asked me frequently if I was a sufi. The poem says it all

Water that's poured inside will sink the boat While water underneath keeps it afloat. Driving wealth from his heart to keep it pure King Solomon preferred the title 'Poor': That sealed jar in the stormy sea out there Floats on the waves because it's full of air, When you've the air of dervishood inside You'll float above the world and there abide...

Where is God?

I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there; I went to the Temple of the Hindus and to the old pagoda, but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere.

I searched the mountains and the valleys but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him. I went to the Kaaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers, but He was beyond their understanding.

I then looked into my heart and it was there where He dwelled that I saw him; He was nowhere else to be found.

-J. Rumi

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
"Gold is the money of kings; silver is the money of gentlemen; barter is the money of peasants; but debt is the money of slaves."

I hear that voice is heard at the new DP Religion Forum!

What is a Sufi Muslim? It is my limited understanding that the Muslim faith refutes the death of Jesus by the cross. Is that the case?

Romans almost never used crosses to crucify.

They use a single vertical post, or a structure that resembled an uppercase "T." The lower case "t" is a pre-christian symbol, used to represent righteousness, which is why the mark is made on people's foreheads on Ash Wednesday. Alot of the Jesus myth is just that, a myth.

******************
"To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world."

The T Jesus was nailed to had a place for a sign

Matthew 27:37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

I care not whether it was a T or a t.

Nice

Thank you Tom.

One of my favorites as well.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Greetings Bear,

a while back I had typed a reply here but then I clicked back to see your other post (re the cross, above, on this page), when I returned the text was gone. so I typed this one again.
DP is very easy to use, I need to read the options /tools.
