In this book we will look at the history and “evolution” of the three deities making up the bulk of the world’s religions, and the evolution of the religions formed from the worship of these three deities. We will examine the history and development of Elohim, Yahweh, and Allah. In doing so, we will also look at the teachings of Jesus and Mohammed, and their influence on the Christian and Islamic faiths respectively. By an objective examination of the Gods of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths we shall see how man’s views of these deities changed over time, and with those changes we will examine how the faiths evolved. No concept of God or religion exists in a vacuum. Ideas and beliefs build on previous ideas and beliefs, combining to form new insights and forms of worship. Customs change when exposed to other cultures. So it is that religions and their gods grow and evolve as one religion or culture meets another. What and who God is has changed and morphed in time with these expanding views. What we see as God’s focus and strength change according to what a tribe or nation needs at the time. To begin our study we must go back to a time before there were Jews, Christians, or Muslims. In the primitive mind of man, there was God. Whether God was conceived or recognized is a matter for discussion.

The history of the Prophet Mohammed, the development of Islam, implementation of Shariah Law, and views of Qur’anic interpretations are all presented along with three separate classical translations of the Holy Qu’ran. Put simply, The Qu’ran is viewed as an unfolding revelation. Thus, the last statement in the Qu’ran regarding a subject supersedes any statement that came before it. This is called ABROGATION. Thus, we list verses in chronological order and examine the list for the last verses written on a subject to see what instructions are to be followed by Islam today. What is revealed answers the great questions facing modern Western civilization. What is Islam? What does the Qu’ran really say? How has Islam become so violent and why is Islamic terrorism flooding the world today?

Islam cannot be treated simply as a religion. Islam is a political movement seeking to bring about a worldwide theocracy with Muslims ruling through Sharia Law. Islam is a socio-political system founded on a religion. Its laws are a set of irrevocable and unchanging religious commands written in the 7th century in a book called the Quran (Koran) by the prophet and warlord, Mohammed. Today, Islamic terrorists are killing innocent people and destabilizing governments around the world, but what do we really know about their religion, their beliefs, and their ultimate goals? We will answer the following questions and more: Where and how did Islam originate? What does the Quran actually say and mean? What do Muslims believe? What makes this religion so dangerous? Why do Muslims insist on using Sharia Law instead of the laws of any nation? Why do some claim Islam is a religion of peace even as it spawns terrorism? How and why did Islam splinter into so many violent groups? What are the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS? Where did they come from and what do they want? Are terrorists and radical Muslims actually following the Quran? Do these Muslims really want a global war? Does the Quran actually support war, terrorism, slavery, polygamy, marriage to children, animal sacrifice, stoning, beating, amputation and decapitation? Why are many Muslim believers so eager to kill and die for Islam? Why are European countries sinking into lawless lands of rape, murder, and chaos under the actions of Islamic immigrants? What can be done to stop terrorism here and now? How can we defend our nation and our families against radical Islam? We will use direct quotes from major clerics and the Quran to reveal the truth about Islam. We will look into the plans of radical clerics to take over Europe and then the U.S. We will examine the history, beliefs, laws, aims, and goals of Islam. We will use the words of journalists and reporters to delve into recent events. We will uncover terrorist groups actually working with the U.S. government. We will read the words of noted security experts to gain insight into defense. We will understand radical Islam and be prepared to defend against the coming violence.

Buy this book now!

Presented here are three of the most popular and sought after apocryphal books in a single volume. – The Book of Enoch is quoted by Jude, cited by Peter, and read by the apostles, Enoch (1 Enoch) informs our ideas of angels and demons. Enoch tells us about the Watchers, the Nephilim, the fallen angels, and the origin of certain demons on earth. – The Book of Jubilees, also known as The Little Genesis and The Apocalypse of Moses, opens with an extraordinary claim of authorship. It is attributed to the very hand of Moses; penned while he was on Mount Sinai, as an angel of God dictated to him regarding those events that transpired from the beginning of the world. The story is written from the viewpoint of the angel. The angelic monolog takes place after the exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt. The setting is atop Mount Sinai, where Moses was summoned by God. The text then unfolds as the angel reveals heaven’s viewpoint of history. – The Book of Jasher reveals a large quantity of additional information about the period between divine creation and the time of Joshua’s leadership over Israel when the Israelites enter into the land of Canaan. The Book of Jasher includes details about the antediluvian patriarchs, angels, watchers, the flood, the tower of Babel, and many other events mentioned in the Bible. All three books reveal amazing information about the Watchers, the Nephilim, and the fall of the angels when the sons of God came down and took the daughters of man as wives and produced giants, monsters, and the nephilim.

Presented here are the Books of “The Sophia of Jesus Christ” (also called “The Wisdom of Jesus Christ”) and “Eugnostos the Blessed” with extensive commentary on the ancient texts, Gnosticism, and the Divine Feminine. Gnosticism holds a special and unique place in the formation of Christianity. The theology presented by the Gnostics demands a balance of male and female “energies”. In this book we will explore Gnosticism and the Divine Feminine through the lens of two great Gnostic texts. We will see the influence of Gnosticism and how their idea of the Divine Feminine effected orthodox or mainline Christianity. The treatise of “Eugnostos the Blessed” (50-150 A.D.) and the gospel called, “The Sophia of Jesus Christ”, (50-200 A.D.) are presented together in a single volume, due to their close and undeniable connection. In fact, one borrowed heavily from the other. “The Sophia of Jesus Christ”, also called “The Wisdom of Jesus Christ”, seems to be a later and Christianized version of “Eugnostos the Blessed”, a non-Christian Gnostic text. Gnosticism is complex and deserves explanation in order to better understand the texts. Extensive history, background and commentary are provided in order to reveal the inner working of Gnosticism, the place of women in their theology, and how Gnosticism influenced Christianity.

Among consenting adults, family should be a matter of choice and the configuration thereof should be the choice of the family members. There are between 50,000 and 100,000 families in the U.S. living in polygamy today. Recently, these numbers began to climb rapidly as certain Christian, Islamic, and secular groups seek ways to live according to their convictions, in spite of federal and state laws. The growth is accelerating at a surprising rate. Yet, there are few resources and little information to help those seeking happiness in this way of life. This book is a primer for those wishing to seek fulfillment outside the confines of monogamy. As people search for and find their own happiness, the population practicing polygamy will soon grow large enough to have a voice loud enough to change the laws of the land from within. Polygamy may be the next movement in the search for individual freedom and happiness. Polygamy: The act of having more than one spouse. A husband having more than one wife or wife having more than one husband is called polygamy. Polygamy is a general term and exists in three specific forms: polygyny, polyandry, and polyamory. Polygyny: When a man has multiple simultaneous wives, the state is specifically called polygyny. You will also hear the term, “Plural Marriage” or “Celestial Marriage” used by the FLDS church when one husband has several wives. Polyandry: When a woman has multiple simultaneous husbands it is specifically called polyandry. Polyamory: Group marriage, where the family unit consists of multiple husbands and multiple wives, is specifically called polyamory. This book will look at polygamy, its forms, functions, history, logistics, strengths and pitfalls.

Somewhere in our antediluvian past mankind both technologically and socially surged forward in a single leap, from being hunter-gatherers to city dwellers and inventors, we intellectually bloomed in a second of historical time. For millions of years we, as a species, saw little change, but around the time primitive men began drawing pictures in caves depicting aliens, flying machines, and spacecraft suddenly everything changed and man began to invent, create, build, and imagine a future. Synchronicity of these events cannot go unnoticed. The development of the wheel, the building of ornate astrological temples, the invention of writing, math, and all the technology that would lead to the modern age took place in seemingly a blink of an eye. For millions of years humanoids struggled to survive with little discernible advancement in their technology or skills, then overnight mankind began to develop at an amazing rate. For 10 million years we lived as animals lived, as cave dwellers, hunting and gathering when we could where we could. Then they came, and everything changed. We began to read and write. We began living in cities. We began wild adventures of creativity. We built pyramids. We learned about the stars. We could predict solar and lunar events. We became brighter, more intelligent, certainly more creative and inventive. To what do we owe this quantum leap in our development? The mere act of discovering or learning does not answer the question fully. We were thinking differently, deeper, more logically. We were being changed, altered, our DNA being manipulated. We were being made better. But for what purpose and toward what end was mankind being changed?

Jesus and Mary – Husband and Wife? Who Were They and What Was Their Relationship?

The newly discovered, “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” revealed to the public in September of 2012, has reignited controversy over what is now mounting evidence that Jesus may have been married. Gospels and letters, some hidden by the church and some lost until recently, tell the story of who Jesus was, what he looked like, and who he married. Jesus of Nazareth and Mary of Magdala, were they husband and wife? The evidence is piling up.

The disciples said to Jesus, “… … Mary is worthy of it … …” Jesus said to them, “My wife … … she will be able to be my disciple … (Gospel of Jesus’ Wife) – And the companion (Consort) was Mary of Magdala.

The Lord loved Mary more than all the other disciples and he kissed her often on her mouth. The others saw his love for Mary asked him: “Why do thou love her more than all of us?” The Savior replied, “Why do I not love you in the same way I love her?” (Gospel of Philip) –

Peter said to Mary; “Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than all other woman. Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember and know, but have we heard and do not know. Mary answered him and said; “I will tell you what He hid from you.” (Gospel of Mary Magdalene) –

Simon Peter said to them: Send Mary away from us, for women are not worthy of this life. Jesus said: See, I will draw her into me so that I make her male, in order that she herself will become a living spirit like you males. For every female who becomes male will enter the Kingdom of the Heavens. (Gospel of Thomas)

A Complete Study Guide For Technician, General, Extra Class Ham Radio Exams, and the Volunteer Examiner Test: Including the Correct Answers to All … on Basic Theory, Rules, and Regulations

Technician Class pool valid until June 30, 2014, General Class pool valid until June 30, 2015, Extra Class pool valid until June 30, 2016. – – – Don’t think of a black cat. Don’t think of a black cat. Do not think of a black cat. The brain does not process negatives very well. It takes in information first and then later attempts to filter out false data. To expose someone to incorrect answers on a test is to place fraudulent information in memory and then say to the brain, “Don’t remember these answers.” It is for this reason the only answers you will encounter in this book are the correct ones. For those who wish to memorize only the answers, there are no formulas needed, no math, no electronics or theories to learn. This manual contains the answers to all possible questions in all tests from Technician Class, General Class and Extra Class license tests. In addition, the manual also provides the answers to the Volunteer Examiner’s test. However, many people want to know why and many need a framework on which to relate the answers. That is why this book is arranged so that theories, formulas, rules, and regulations are explained in separate chapters. General theories and concepts of electronics and antenna design along with F.C.C. regulations are presented to the reader. Formulas, explanations, and diagrams from various sources give the reader all the information needed to pass the licensing tests, all in one book. This is a “two-pronged” approach. You chose the path that is best for you.
