    The Theology of Islam (Understanding World Religions #18)

    in Islam

    Our quote for today is from Martin Luther King Jr. He said, "Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals."

    In this podcast, we are making our way through Garry R. Morgan's book, "Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day."

    Our Understanding World Religions topic for today is, "The Theology of Islam." 

    Monotheistic Islam shares many similarities with Judaism and Christianity, along with Zoroastrianism and Baha'i. But there are important differences. For example, Muslims share Judaism's belief in God's absolute oneness. Christians also believe God is one Being and that he eternally exists as three persons. The Qur'an and the Bible likewise agree on many of God's attributes, but again there are areas of disagreement. That the same or similar words are sometimes used with different meanings generates misunderstanding. For instance, Muslims and Christians both say God is merciful, but the Bible adds to this his grace and love. Minus these attributes, salvation as a divine gift is incomprehensible to Muslims.

    Melchizedek Gospel—Response in the Occident (Part 4)

    in Religion

    The cult of Mithras arose in Iran and long persisted in its homeland.  By the time Mithraism reached Rome, it had become greatly improved by the absorption of many of Zoroaster's teachings.  It was chiefly through the Mithraic cult that the religion of Zoroaster exerted an influence upon later appearing Christianity.  During the third century after Christ, Mithraic and Christian churches were very similar both in appearance and in the character of their ritual.

    The Natural Law Hour- What are Angels

    in Spirituality

    An angel is a supernatural being or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Zoroastrianism and Abrahamic religions they are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence.[1][2] Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks.[3] The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. The theological study of angels is known as "angelology".

    WHat are Angels? Are they little  babies with wings  on their back?

    Melchizedek Gospel—Response in the Levant (Part 4)

    in Religion

    The doctrine of the Abrahamic covenant was virtually extinct in Persia when Zoroaster appeared to revive the smoldering embers of the Salem gospel.  This new religion was one of action—work—not prayers and rituals.  And while failing to evolve the Trinity concept, it did in a certain way approach that of God the Sevenfold.  The teachings of Zoroaster successively impressed three great religions: Judaism and Christianity and, through them, Mohammedanism.  This week we begin our studies with Paper 95, Section 6.

    Moving Forward as a Religion

    in Religion

    Now that the Black Mass of Oklahoma is reached its pinnicle in the media, we will continue to move forward.  For those who are unaware, part of constitution is: We shall call chaos into order in unison with the vexation brought about by the Proclamation of Evil Deeds done by the entire original denizens of Hell. Thus creating finite evil, infinitely.  Our Purpose is to practice and organize in the worship of Angra Mainyu, to maintain Traditional Ahrimanism by creating chaos within our communities as shown to us by Angra Mainyu, and to educate people about religious Ahrimanism.

    Where are we moving next?  Well, listen as Dastur Adam Daniels explains where the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu is moving into the future.  Is this just a fad or has this Church been progressively moving forward while being ignored by the media untill recently.  Here we stand proclaiming the Devil at the Gates, Gawd in all his glory is powerless against us!

    in Spirituality

    God is often conceived as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith. In theism, God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. In deism, God is the creator (but not the sustainer) of the universe. In pantheism, God is the universe itself. The concept of God as described by theologians commonly includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), omnibenevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence. Monotheism is the belief in the existence of one God or in the oneness of God. God has also been conceived as being incorporeal (immaterial), a personal being, the source of all moral obligation, and the "greatest conceivable existent". 

    There are many names for God, and different names are attached to different cultural ideas about who God is and what attributes possessed. In the ancient Egyptian era of Atenism, possibly the earliest recorded monotheistic religion premised on there being one "true" Supreme Being and Creator of the Universe, this deity is called Aten. In the Hebrew Bible "He Who Is," "I Am that I Am", and the "Tetragrammaton" YHVH are used as names of God, while Yahweh, and Jehovah are sometimes used in Christianity as vocalizations of YHVH. In Arabic and other Semitic language, the name Allah, "Al-El," or "Al-Elah" ("the God") is used. Muslims regard a multitude of titular names for God, while in Judaism it is common to refer to God by the titular names Elohim or Adonai, the latter of which is believed by some scholars to descend from the Egyptian Aten. In Hinduism, Brahman is often considered a monistic deity. Other religions have names for God, for instance, Baha in the Bahá'í Faith,[Waheguru in Sikhism, and Ahura Mazda in Zoroastrianism.

    The Legacy of Mithraism in Magick and Masonry

    in Radio

    On Thursday, September 26, 2013 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on The Legacy of Mithraism on Magick and Masonry. We will trace the origins of the Mithra sect from the ancient Persian Magi -- an offshoot of Zoroastrianism -- through the Greco-RomanMiddle East, into the mileau of classical Alexandria, where its western branch acquired a cosmology that was largely Hermetic. In fact one might say that the Greco-Roman Mithra sect was ritualized Hermeticism. For several centuries it rivaled Christianity but was eventually overcome when emperor Constantine, himself a Mithraite, made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire for practical political reasons. The Mithra sect was an elite, initiatory, all male religious fraternity that extolled honor, bravery and loyalty. Great for the Roman army but not for the downtrodden masses. Its influence on the later Masonicfraternity is obvious. Mithraism had seven initiatory degrees so similar to Crata Repoa that John Yarker called his Crata Repoa degree in Rite of Memphis "The Sage of Mithras." We will unravel the complex astrological symbolism of the "Tauroctony", the ritual slaying of the bull, the mystery of the strange lion-headed god, and the theory that the secret communion meal was the old Persian-version of Soma. Our main text reference will be D. Jason Cooper's "Mithras" (1996) with references to Franz Cumont's (1912) "Astrology and Religion Among the Greeks and Romans" and "Mushrooms, Myth & Mithras" by Carl A. P. Ruck,et allia (2011). So, if you want to follow us down into the underground temple of the Mithraeum for a look into the origin of many of our rites and degrees, then tune in and we'll lift the veil.
