“”we all can be very wrong about what we believe””
The act of being crucified on the cross was a demonstration of freedom. ?
The enslavement of the mind to disillusionment is also slavery!?
“”Using the work of another to support my theory; Both I and the link could be false””
Human interpretation can twist the entire message.

Wow, great comments.

As I understand things. Human beings have an incredible talent for self delusion. We can create and imagine just about anything at all, and believe that our manufactured thoughts are real and absolute.

I state this, because, before any serious discussion is to be had, all parties in the discussion must accept the truth that we all can be very wrong about what we believe, and we must be willing, at least, to admit we are wrong. “The smarter I get, the LESS I know”

In philosophy we have a tenet that is called “An Appeal to Authority”
Whenever I use a quote, such as the link I just posted, I am making an appeal to authority. This means that I am using the work of another to support my theory. This does not guarantee that the authority that I am quoting is correct, or that I am correct for that matter. Both I and the link could be false.

Many times I use a link to the bible. This is an appeal to the authority of the bible. But, make note, I do not understand the bible to be absolutely correct in all its assertions.

I have never read the Koran; therefore I can not have much of an opinion of what it says in that book. The fact is, that not one piece of literature is so perfect as to “not be misunderstood” .Human interpretation can twist the entire message. Having said all that, I’ll get to the point.

The act of being crucified on the cross was a demonstration of freedom. How can you control a slave nation, if no one will do as they are told?

Punishment was the way to control the slaves. Jesus was out to free the enslaved, those enslaved by sin, and those who were enslaved to law. The enslavement of the mind to disillusionment is also slavery, as real as being forced to work manual labor at the end of a whip.

Psychology is the study of the human mind. It is amazing just how much pain we put ourselves through with our minds.

Rules are for those who are expected to obey; Principles are for those who are expected to think. Jesus was not demonstrating disobedience to the law, but instead he was demonstrating the Principle of freedom. In short, when the individual is finally free from the paralyzing fear, which slavery to sin makes us all, then that person will begin to know peace.

This is my opinion, and I could be wrong.

My goal is, to communicate and not be misunderstood.

Therefore I maintain that I am a scholar, and have much yet to learn.
Thank for the dialog. It is always educational and inspirational to post ones thoughts and get some feedback.

We will discuss the above comments bit by bit with a spirit of learning in separate posts. Though I don’t agree to all his views, yet I appreciate most of them.

I love Jesus and his mission as described in Quran.

I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
