A New Muslim Vision: Rebuilding Solomon’s Temple Together

To cast believers out is a heinous and cruel policy, an offense not only to men, but to Islam.

The Temple as seen in the Holyland Model of Jerusalem, a 21,520 sq. ft., 1:50 scale-model of the city of Jerusalem in the late Second Temple Period.

The Temple as seen in the Holyland Model of Jerusalem, a 21,520 sq. ft., 1:50 scale-model of the city of Jerusalem in the late Second Temple Period.

The unique importance of the Temple Mount to Judaism and to Islam makes the location vulnerable to tensions and conflicts between Jews and Muslims. Usually, these incidents originate in rumors such as: “The Jews are coming today to bomb the mosques and build their Third Temple.” Obviously, false accusations and baseless suspicions like these turn the site from a holy place of prayer and love into a site of violent political demonstrations. And, consequently, potential escalation of tension brings more restrictions and discomfort to all. Who benefits from this? Surely not the believers.

While the Israeli government ensures limited public access to the Temple Mount regardless of religious beliefs, only Muslims are allowed to pray at the place, which is known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif. Otherwise, the government has prohibited everyone except Muslims from worshipping there since 1967, due to security concerns. Nevertheless, Muslims, too, are occasionally restricted. The Jordanian Waqf which administers the site has restricted non-Muslims from entering the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque since the year 2000. What’s more, non-Muslim religious symbols are not allowed to be worn while entering the site.

Freedom of worship is an essential issue. The Temple Mount, where the First and Second Temples stood, is the holiest place to the people of Israel. However, it is no less holy to both Muslims and Christians. Since this is a location that God has announced to be a “house of prayer for all nations,” it should be a place of festivity for all believers. As all who call on the God of Abraham are brothers, Jews and Christians should be able to offer prayers there in dignity and peace along with Muslims. To cast believers out from such a place, to prevent worship there, is a heinous and, quite frankly, cruel policy, which is an offense not only to men, but to Islam. God Himself condemns anyone who forbids worship:

“And who is more unjust than he who forbids that in places for the worship of God, God’s name should be celebrated?-whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except in fear. For them there is nothing but disgrace in this world, and in the world to come, an exceeding torment.” (Koran 2:214)

Likewise, the Tanakh declares the will of God to make this unique spot a common sanctuary where all people learn to coexist and pray together:

“For then will I turn clear language to the Nations, that they may all call upon the name of God, to serve Him shoulder to shoulder.” (Zephaniah 3:9)

Anywhere one prays to the One and Only Almighty God is a house of prayer. Therefore, it is an atrocious thing to forbid anyone from praying at the Temple Mount. The longings of Bnei Israel to pray in that place can never be an offense to a Muslim. On the contrary, it is very pleasant to see Jewish people praying at the Temple Mount. Indeed, all the faithful people should be able to pray there. As a matter of fact, in Istanbul’s Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and others houses of worship, foreign tourists often come and pray. Some perform their religious obligations according to their own faith, and it is something quite beautiful to see.

As a devout Muslim, I take pleasure when Jews pray to Almighty God, and their praying anywhere in the world, including at the Temple Mount, would be a glad tiding for me as well.

As a devout Muslim, it would be a joy for me to see Prophet Solomon’s Temple rebuilt as well. No, you did not hear me wrong. Prophet Solomon’s Temple being rebuilt in all its magnificence and glory would be a great delight for me, as it would be to any Muslim. Under different circumstances, in an atmosphere of trust, love and brotherhood, Muslims would welcome this with enthusiasm. The Temple of Solomon is also a historically important place, and rebuilding it would be a wonderful occasion for all believers to contemplate. Every Muslim, every believer, will want to experience the spirit of those days again, and strive to bring the beauty of those days back to life. Actually, it is everyone’s aspiration for that city to be adorned, to be beautified, and to regain the magnificent glory it had in the days of the Prophet Solomon.

Solomon’s Temple being rebuilt does not entail any harm to these shrines. So I beg my Muslim brothers and sisters not to take my words in a direction that I do not intend. They should not feel unease at all, because the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock will stand until the Last Day. Nobody will be able to harm them, because they are under the protection of God.

There is a broad expanse of land around the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. The land there is quite convenient in that respect, and the Temple can be placed just a little way from Qubbat As-Sakhrah, and a little ahead of Masjid el-Aqsa.

The Prophet Solomon—King Solomon as the Jews call him—is a prophet to Muslims too. All Muslims have profound love for him. Prophet Solomon had a superior understanding of beauty and aesthetics, and no doubt, rebuilding of his Temple in its original form would be a splendid undertaking. Decorated exactly as it was, with the same beautiful ornaments, covered in gold, adorned with fruit trees and beautiful gardens, and restored to its former glory, would be splendid!

It is of course very exciting to remember those beautiful days, to rebuild this beautiful compound, and let this beautiful prayer house be open to all. This very much excites me as a Muslim and excites other believers as well. The very thought of Christians, Jews and Muslims cooperating to rebuild this house of worship, together hand in hand, and worshipping there together, is a matter of joy.

Think of the waste of energy and resources consumed all over the world by the contention between Arabs and Jews, which could be used to beautify these holy places, to put them in a brilliant state, instead! There is plenty of space, and there are overwhelmingly sufficient resources for everyone to live there in peace and tranquility and enjoy their freedom of worship.

How have we allowed these unending wars, sporadic clashes, security walls, unnecessary discrimination and restrictions to bar us from being able to embrace each other as brothers? Why do we take it for granted that we are under any obligation to perpetuate these senseless conflicts? Why does everyone simply presume that this is the way things are meant to be? We all want suffering to end and peace to prevail in the region! Obviously we cannot achieve this peace as long as we lack the spirit of unity.

The Jews have the exact same vision, with the Third Temple being a center for all believers, not only for Jews:

“Also the aliens, that join themselves to God, to minister unto Him, and to love the name of God, to be His servants… Even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be acceptable upon Mine altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” (Isaiah 56:6-7)

We will rebuild—not only the Temple of Solomon, but those of all the prophets too. As a matter of fact, apart from the Prophet Solomon’s Temple, the other prayer houses of other prophets, the places where they inhabited, should be rebuilt as well. The places where they worshiped should be restored and glorified. Similarly, they should be opened, and Christians, Muslims and Jews should be allowed to visit them at the same time. The places where the Prophets Abraham, Joseph, Isaac, Jacob, Aaron lived should be restored and beautified also.

The main entrance to the Old City is the Jaffa Gate. This gate was built by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in 1538. The name in Arabic, Bab el-Halil, or Hebron Gate, means “The Beloved,” and refers to Prophet Abraham. In the entrance hall of the Gate, there is a stone on which the following text is engraved: “There is only one God and Abraham is his friend.” It is written this way because Jews and Christians were also using this gate along with Muslims, and the text refers to our common belief in the Prophet Abraham. So this should be the spirit in this site: We all worship the same One God and we are all children of Prophet Abraham!

Let us embrace each other with respect and love! Let us talk together, and envision better days in which we can all pray, and unite in celebration and brotherhood in this Prayer House of our blessed Prophet Solomon, and praise the glory of Almighty God together! Let every Christian, every Muslim, every Jew unite in this one godly desire! Let us endeavor to achieve this together, and let us believe that it is possible for everyone to perform their prayers in joy and peace!

    @ charlie one of the many names of allah is "the great deceiver" look it up.

    Do you think that Hashem is the great deciever?

  2. Tim Upham says:

    In the Qu'ran, Jews and Christians are referred to as "The People of the Book," because it is from them that the Muslims got the scriptures from. But I do not see the wisdom behind rebuilding Solomon's Temple. It is a thing out of the past, and it required Cedars of Lebanon, which are now an endangered species. Rebuilding Solomon's Temple would be like Saddam Hussein wanting to rebuild the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. They were never rebuilt, and Saddam Hussein was executed. Instead of rebuilding the glories out of the past, why not focus on closer relations between Jews, Muslims, and Christians.

  3. Ahron Ebert says:

    One of the problems with this plan is the Mosque is sitting on the site for the main building of the Bais HaMikdah

  4. Marc Heatherington says:

    Charlie, being monotheistic doesn't translate to 'same god'. Muslims worship a God that requires death and evangelism by the sword. Their God is Satan.

  5. Marc Heatherington says:

    Yori, you confuse Christian with Catholic. Not the same.

  6. Eva Feld says:

    Madness, sheer madness, without "g-voolot" bounderies. Doesn't anyone read the Book of Jeremaiah? The Temple is inside us. We need to be Jews, we'd be come building worshipers. Madness, sheer madness.

  7. Rajel Ventura says:

    And I'd like to add to what you say that not only we (Jews and Muslims) worship the same One God, but we're also allowed to pray in the same place.
    But we can't pray in a church, because it contains statues that are supposed to picture God. Sooo.. to those hallucinating wth satans, demons and anti-thingies, please, don't.

  8. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Chaya Goldstein Rabbi Meir Kahane’s father, Rabbi Charles Kahane, was involved in the Revisionist Zionist and was editor of the Jewish Press. He’s probably turning over in his grave that the present editor of the Jewish Press, Yori Yanover, supports and defends Islam.

  9. @Mo Arthur…

    You may be talking about verse 3:54 of the Qur'an. The verse has to do with the Prophet Jesus. Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified, but was raised up to the heavens by Allah. Maybe you are asking this question because the word "deciever" has a "bad" connotation. The Qur'an is in Arabic, a complex language, so lets look at several English translations of verse 3:54.

    Sahih International
    And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.

    Muhsin Khan
    And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus) ], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners.

    And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.

    Yusuf Ali
    And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.

    And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners.

    And they devised, and God devised, and God is the best of devisers.

    The unbelievers plotted and God planned, but God is a much better planner;

    They plotted and schemed, but so did GOD, and GOD is the best schemer.

    And they (disbelievers) plotted (to kill Iesa (Jesus) ), and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners.

    The unbelievers among the children of Israel plotted against Jesus and Allah also devised a plan to raise him up, and Allah is the best in planning.

    The opponents made some plans, but so did Allah. And Allah is the Virtuous of planners. (They schemed to arrest and crucify Jesus but Allah assured him).

    Maulana Ali
    And (the Jews) planned and Allah (also) planned. And Allah is the best of planners.

    Free Minds
    And they schemed and God schemed, but God is the best schemer.

    They devised, and Allah devised. And Allah is the Best Devisor.

    George Sale
    And the Jews devised a stratagem against him; but God devised a stratagem against them; and God is the best deviser of stratagems.

    JM Rodwell
    And the Jews plotted, and God plotted: But of those who plot is God the best.

    And the unbelievers schemed [against Jesus]; but God brought their scheming to nought: for God is above all schemers.

    And the explanation of the verse from Tafsir Al-Jalalayn:
    God says: And they, the disbelievers among the Children of Israel, schemed, against Jesus, by assigning someone to assassinate him; and God schemed, by casting the likeness of Jesus onto the person who intended to kill him, and so they killed him, while Jesus was raised up into heaven; and God is the best of schemers, most knowledgeable of him [Jesus].

    So, NONE of these translations even use the word "deciever".

  10. Guru Nanak is the founder of the Sikh religion and forefather of Sikhs considered Muslims good people. He praised the Quran and mentioned the name of the Prophet Muhammad (saas) every time respectfully. Do you need source???

  11. Mo Arthur
    @"allah is the pagan moon god"

    Allah as Moon-God is a claim put forth by some Evangelical Christian groups. "Allah" is simply the word for "God" in Arabic, which ultimately derives from the same root as the Hebrew words "El" and "Elohim", both used in the Book of Genesis. "Allah is simply the Arabic word meaning God. In fact people who speak Arabic, be they Christians, Jews or Muslims, often say "Allah" to describe God, just as God is called "Gott" in German and "Dieu" in French.

    Quran says "The hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder."

    Before Islam, the Kaaba contained a statue representing the god Hubal. The alleged miracle of the splitting of the moon shows that God is not the moon, but has power over it. Whether or not Hubal was even associated with the moon, both Muhammad and his enemies clearly identified Hubal and Allah as different gods, their supporters fighting on opposing sides in the Battle of Badr. Ibn Hisham notes that Abu Sufyan ibn Harb, leader of the defeated anti-Islamic army, called to Hubal for support to gain victory in their next battle;

    When Abu Sufyan wanted to leave he went to the top of the mountain and shouted loudly saying, 'You have done a fine work; victory in war goes by turns. Today in exchange for the day (of Badr). Show your superiority, Hubal,' i.e. vindicate your religion. The apostle told ‘Umar to get up and answer him and say, God [Allah] is most high and most glorious. We are not equal. Our dead are in paradise; your dead are in hell

  12. Sorry, but you error when you say they are one in the same. It simply isn't true.

  13. Joey Loving Jesus Risner says:

    Edin Luan Limani disagree all u want but they are not the same God u are being led astray by the teachings of chrislam. jehova God would never tell us to do even 1 thing that the muslims claim God teaches them to do. u are deceived!!! repent and come out of that teaching!

  14. Joey Loving Jesus Risner says:

    Lisa Liel um yes it is I pray to God almighty Jehova or YHWH or Yeshua this is the same God and Son and Holy Spirit trinity the Jews pray to but not the mooslimes!

  15. Joey Loving Jesus Risner says:

    yes they do u stop showing ur ignorance!

  16. Darby Watson says:

    Edin Luan Limani, are you aware the Quran calls their God aka ALLAH, the greatest deciever of all? Jesus was NOT THE SON OF GOD, according to their book. It also says to kill Jews and Christians and by doing so one will be guaranteed a place in heaven. What bible are you reading? Mine doesn't say such things, it says we are to love one another. Jesus said and he doesn't lie, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

  17. James Martin says:

    To allow muslums to pray their is to allow them to pray to the Babylon god Allah represented by the cresent moon. Muhammad's father's middle name translates to "slave of Allah." Muhammad even took on the holidays of this religion. The God of the Jews is a God of love. Allah, as stated in the Koran, is the greatest of schemers and a god of hate. The Koran says God did not have a Son. Jesus was the Son of God.

  18. Kristi Jones says:

    They are not the same GOD…The GOD of the Bible has a Son, and the Muslims reject the Son as the Son of GOD.

  19. "The Temple Mount, where the First and Second Temples stood, is the holiest place to the people of Israel. However, it is no less holy to both Muslims and Christians."

    If the Temple Mount is no less holy to… Muslims, than why is it (Jerusalem) considered the 3rd most holy location in Islam behind Mecca and Medina?

    Jerasulem is not considered one of the most holy places to Jews and Christians, but THE most holy place.

    as they say, I'm just saying.

  20. The author is also ignoring the fact that Islam did not come into existance until the 7th century, thousands of years after the first and second temples were built by the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, not the god of Ishmael decendents.

    However, the New Israel has to answer the question of WHY they call the land of Judah, Isreal, and why they spurn God's destruction of Israel forever (Isaiah) in the prophecies.

    Jerusalem is in Judah, not Israel. But those who chose the path of Zionism, and the Balfour Agreement, chose also to use a name for the land that is not in accordance with the Almighty's Word.

    Bless Isreal… but for Christians, it is NOT to segregate the Jews as something above. Yeshua said love your neighbor as you love yourself.

  21. Kristi Ward Barragán says:

    Does anyone find the version he used for Isaiah 56:6-7..a little odd? "alien" I mean I know we call foreigners aliens.. In the times that we are currently in and all the consuming talk about aliens. :|

  22. Joe Johnson says:

    Yeshua is the Word of God made flesh. We are created in God's image, so consider how you have a body, mind and spirit; all you, but different, yet under the authority of your mind. We have no way to know one another, except by our words and actions. Our minds/soul are concealed from one another, but we experience each other through our bodies;
    God's interaction with His creation is like this as well, remember we were created in His image, one of the first things the Scriptures say about Man….
    If you have a heart to understand, you can meditate on this concept in prayer, and ask God to show you whats up….

  23. A vital difference between the Islamic and Christian views of God is the biblical concept of the Trinity. In the Bible, God has revealed Himself as one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God’s Son came in the form of man, a truth called the incarnation (Luke 1:30-35; John 1:14; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 4:1-3). The Lord Jesus Christ conquered the penalty and power of sin by dying on the cross (Romans 6:23). After rising from the dead, Jesus went back to heaven to be with His Father and sent the Holy Spirit to believers (Acts 1:8-11). One day, Christ will return to judge and rule (Acts 10:42, 43). Those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus will live with Him, but those who refuse to follow Him must be separated in hell from the holy God.

    “The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him” (John 3:35-36).

    Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.(1 John 4:3).

  24. Tony Rojas says:

    So you are aware that being all together with Christians with the Pope leading the union is part of the last prophecies? As stated in Apocalipsis and the bible? And that Satan itself will sit on the temple as a world leader worshiped by the Pope and all religions? and then he will show himself as Satan. This is not new for us. It has to happen and it will as the bible states. The end is so close with this new pope calling all muslim, Jews and Christians together but those who don't adore this pact and his leader will be prosecuted and killed. Only those who persist till the end will be saved.Don't fool yourself with good will for this union as a human success.

  25. Tony Rojas says:

    Edin Luan Limani Is the same God. But the fact is that Jesus is the only way to reach him. But this true will be changed to customize it to this new Union. It must happen an Satan its working on it, cheating all unaware believers. This world is coming to see the Christ return and all eyes will see it and all tongues will recognize him, like it or not.

  26. Cary Grant says:

    Maybe you should read Psalm 83. They plot against God's chosen people and God Himself.

  27. Amen!!! YESHUA HAMASHIA, JESUS CHRIST, JEHOVÁ is not the same as Alá, the moon-god of old…This line of thinking is precisely what is going to bring about the the agreement to rebuild the III Temple! The predictions are right on schedule…watch for soemthing Big to happen on the 22 of this month…just have a feeling about it…those Ilu-mi-na-d-os love their symbolisms… This is what the Book of Revelations referred to as "The Great Deception"…get ready people, because their is coming an event of such magnitude, something that is going to literally rock this world! The Rapture of the Church, of YAWEHS Saved is right around the corner! Amen!!!!

  28. Edin Luan Limani ,

    Read it, but truely read it, with an open heart, and you will see that what you are saying is a fallacy…ther is only One True GOD, and that is YAWEH, JEHOVÁ, YESHUA, JESUS CRISTO, ESPIRITU SANTO, Amen! And you sir, are deceived by Mystery Babilon, the "Seed of Satan", that will unite all religions under the False Prophet, the Jesuit, disciple of the bloody mystic and Il-umin-ado Ignacio de Loyola, and even took the name of the 2nd most bloodiest jesuit after Loyola, Francisco Xavier!!! The Tribulation is about to be presented to mankind…ONLY JESUS CAN SAVE YOU!!

  29. Mo Arthur

    I´m about finished translating his book "God's War on Terror", the best book, after the Bible, I have ever read!!!! JEHOVÁ is not Alá. No way!!!!

  30. ¡Gloria a YESHUA HAMASHIA, JESÚS CRIST, JEHOVÁ!!! The Rapture of YAWEHS Saved is at hand!!! Repent world, and get your life right, because YESHUA is coming soon to judge the world for its crimes, past, present and future) against Israel!!! The Final battle between YESHUA and Satan, Alá, is coming soon….

  31. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is nothing but the truth!!!!!

  32. And it is here Brother, and just watch how the Temple will be built in a short time from now…The "Spirit of Deception" of the False Prophet is about to make its grand entrance to the world stage…and the Rapture can't be far away…

  33. How fitting…that the new Pope is a disciple of the mystic and Iluminado Ignacio de Loyola…father of the Jesuits and sorcerers that slither to-and-fro inside the Vatican, the "Seed of Satan", and of the "santa Inquisición da fe"…and he so loves his company, that he took the name of Francisco Xavier, the second most evil and wicked inquisitor behind Loyola…watch how this man will indeed be "Petrus Romanus", the False Prophet of the Apocalypse, who will bring together the worlds religions to worship the Islamic Beast!

    The Rapture of the Saved cannot be too far away! Amen!

  34. Boni Biggun says:

    "Get behind me Satan!"

  35. Really? The god of Islam hates Jews and Christians. Do you think the God of the Bible hates Jews and Christians?

  36. Awie Mulder says:

    nobody will enter heaven without JESUS THE SON OF YAHWEH!

  37. Around the top of the mosques is inscribed, "God has no son", so how can Christians join in worship with Muslims?

  38. Charles T. Randall says:

    You're deluted. Pope Francis took the name from Francis of Assisi. Get a life and quit attacking the one true church.

  39. Ralph Pelliccia Sr says:

    The Koran states God has no Son its also inscribed on the monument on.
    The temple mount in Jerusalem The Bible states God so Loved the World He gave.
    His only Begotten Son So you make up your mind which will you believe.

  40. Yea, right…you a just the type of person the Catholic church loves…the kind that will eat up any garbage they feed them…It would do you good to come visit Mexico, and really get to know it, like I do, and see what these poor people have to live through…The State of Guanajuato, one of the most catholic states of this country, and has the most ignorant and idolatrous people you can encounter…just the way the Vatican loves to see her followers…The Catholic Church will soon be judged for her whorish nature!, for corrupting the true doctrines and teachings of YESHUA, and for all the blood they have shed upon this earth!!! Amen!!!!

  41. Tama Hinckley says:

    You are very correct, Mikael! Jerusalem is The Most Holy City to both Jews and Christians. And The LORD Who keeps Israel doesn't slumber or sleep. He sees all that is going on and He will keep and defend Israel!

  42. How can we go and worship in the "House of Blasphemy"? Mahoma represents the highest form of Blasphemy on this planet…a murderer and pedophile thief and madman! is what he is…

  43. My bet is on the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

  44. The fact of the matter is that rebuildling the temple is one of the prophecies in Revelation described by a vision of St. John. This is simply another sign of the times. Just wait til Israel signs a peace treaty with her surrounding nations, then S is going to hit the fan.

  45. Clay DeMars says:

    Temple of the sun, sol om on all words for sun. Why someone Linked me to this garbage I'm unsure, religion causes so much violence it's sick.

  46. Jerry Jack says:

    No wonder if stones and trees talked against Zionist Jew, that much you Zionists do to Palestinians and eradicating them and stealing their land and ruins their cultivation…. sick as you all are ..so expect it and it will happen…. and The hadith is about the Zionist Jews who oppress people regardless of their religion including Palestine Christians and Orthodox Jews… not all Jews you try to portray …. Qur'an also says that There are Jews who are Just and they don't have to worry ….. and their reward is with the God God says in the Qur'an….

  47. Jerry Jack says:

    Mo you are a moron!! there is no base in what you talk… you claim that "one of the many names of Allah is great deceiver" lol .. where did you get this dude?? first get your facts straight and talk otherwise shut the **** up… you are the deceiver talking things that you have no idea of. you vomit what you are fed by Islamophobic sites…

  48. Rob Morrison says:

    Im mot sure what everyone is arguing about. Does the Word of God say that there will be poeple with God that we wouldn't think they would be in Heaven? Likewise there will be people we eexpected to see there but are not? Doesnt the Word of God teach that belivers of the one true God (God of Abraham, Messiah, Jehovah) will be with God in the end?

  49. The thing to keep in mind (not worry about) is the tribulation and longsuffering prior to being with the Lord. We'll be ruled by a false messiah.

  50. Rob Morrison says:

    So my question is this. Of someone of different faith lets say Muslim, actually believes in the one true God (God of Abraham) is he not a believer? Please explain it to me cuz it is confusing to me. Im not trying to argue of accuse anyone i am just trying to the views of others

  51. Hennie Nel says:

    So was I, but after I read the comments my heart sank again. Most of the comments are religious mudslinging when the author speaks of tolerance and love.

    Peace and love I pray…

  52. Though the Scriptures say that those who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved, who are we to say that the Lord will not be merciful to those who are faithful to the belief system they know? Unless someone preached to them and have learned of salvation, it is said by many that the Lord is loving and merciful enough that He will still save them. That is different than teachings from other major world religions.

  53. Unreal Muslims supporting the building of a third temple. Who would have thunk it.
