As Ramadan comes to an end, I can’t help but ponder on what I observed in my neighborhood. ...I can’t help but to be reminded of how Jesus answered a question posed to him by people seeking to be justified before God. They asked him, “What shall we do that we may work the works of God?”  Click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrMXlQ2ZWJ0

I have a Syrian Muslim friend with whom I have shared the message of Jesus many times.  Once he objected to the idea that people can be forgiven simply by believing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.  It seemed to him that if a person could be guaranteed forgiveness, he would use this as an excuse to commit whatever sin he so pleased.  

   

Ramadan Mubarak, Day 29: Community of God

How 1 plus 1 plus 1 is not a real objection to the triune nature of God

  "Been there, tried that. '1+1+1 does not equal one.'" 

I have heard this math operation as a proof that the Trinity can't exist before. It is a very popularized Muslim objection to the Trinity. I never quite understood it and I am not sure why we should assume the operation for such a question would be addition. Why not multiplication? 1 x 1 x 1 = 1 after all.

Voila! Problem solved.

"Been there, tried that. '1+1+1 does not equal one.'"

I sometimes try to imagine what it feels like to live as a Muslim. From my understanding, Muslims have been given a set of rules and laws to live by, found in the Qur'an and the accompanying hadiths. These laws are meant to apply to all aspects of life from what to eat, how to dress, how to greet, how to bless, how to do just about anything. As times have changed since the 7
th century, there are jurist (interpreters of the laws) who help Muslims understand what is halal (acceptable) and what is haram (forbidden).
