Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Compares the God Chosen People.

Nobody Cares

It’s ironic when you think about it: The biggest fight in the Middle East is actually between two tribes of people from the same father: Abraham. You remember him, don’t you?

After Adam and Eve. After Noah. After the Tower of Babel…there came into the story: Abraham.

Abraham had a wife Sarah, who was old, but nevertheless she gave birth to a son, Isaac. But before that even happened, he was screwing a young concubine named Hager, who also had his son, and she named him Ishmael.

In modern day terms, Ishmael was a bastard.

Sarah, being the sensible wife, told Abraham to get rid of Hager, (She was no doubt younger and prettier.) and so, he sent her and the boy off to the desert.

Both kids became the fathers of nations: Isaac the Jews. And Ismael the Muslims.

Yes, Abraham is considered the “father” of both Jews and Arabs. You would think that would give them something in common, right?

In fact, the Muslims even mention him in their prayers five times a day.

And they BOTH lay claim to Abraham as being the one man in history who ‘discovered’ that there was only ONE god.

They just both disagreed on the name of that God.

For the Jews, it was Yahweh. For the Muslims, it was Allah. It was the same old story: “Father loves ME best.”

They also both lay claims to the sacrifice story. You know, the one that scared you half to death when you are a little kid?

Fathers CAN take you out to gut you on a mountain, so be nice to them…AND to God.

Every Bible for kids has that picture of Abraham holding his young baby son on a rock…. I remember it scared the beheevies out of me. I thought Abraham was a monster. Nowadays, probably not so shocking since most kids now watch the Walking Dead.

Anyway…

The Jew’s story went: God told Abraham to sacrifice his son on Mount Moriah, (The Temple Mount) and so Abraham took Isaac up and at the very moment before he bought his knife down to cut him into little pieces, God STOPPED him cold.

(Little Joyanna was going “I’m certainly glad SOMEBODY stopped that mean man. I love God!”

And then God told him basically, that since he ‘obeyed’ God, then he would be the father of MANY nations. And HIS people, the Jews basically, would forever be “God’s chosen people.”

(I doubt Harvey Weinstein is feeling too chosen at this moment.)

The Muslims story goes that Abraham, after setting up a nice home for Hager and his son Ismael, left Sarah, to go live with THEM. And God ask the same thing of Abraham who was with Hager:

Sacrifice your son Ismael, to show me your loyalty.

Yep, you guessed it! God saved little Ismael life too! And so, Muhammad rewarded the Muslims with the fact that they are the ONLY true believers deserving to live on the planet. Everyone else is an infidel. And to make matters even better, the Muslims laid claim that the Temple Mound was THEIR Holy site. The Muslims claimed that Muhammed rose into the heavens on that same Mount.

Right back at ya…Jews.

Do you get the feeling there’s a bit of a copyright infringement here?

What story do you think came first?

You got it: The Jew’s version came before Muhammed.

Muhammed saw that becoming a sort of “Jesus” was a good thing…so…He proclaimed the spot, copied the best parts of the Bible, and voila! He was on his way.

Muhammad just copied it, ALTHOUGH…the part about the two brothers might just be true.

After all, the old Jews and Muslim tribes had a lot in common. Women were not permitted to do many things. They could have more than one wife. It took Moses to rectify that. They were both dark-skinned nomads of the desert and to this day, you don’t see too many blond Jews OR Muslims.

Put them in the same clothes and it would be hard to tell what tribe they belonged to.

I don’t know why I was thinking about this, but the questions from all of this comes down to:

Does GOD really WANT you to ….Obey?

Or is it the man that wants you to Obey?

I’m pretty sure that both Jews and Muslims wanted that advantage…to be the ‘chosen’ of God.

So, if you’re not Muslim or Jewish, then there’s always…Jesus!

I’m just saying….

Nobody Cares if I think about these things, right?

One thing we do know: While the Jews contributed tenfold to humanity, they basically married one woman, and the Jewish tribe was almost extinguished from the planet one too many times.

But the Muslims…while the Jews may have the highest IQs on the planet, the Muslims had four wives and have the numbers to take over the rest of the planet.

God has told them to do this..or that’s their claim.

Many of us already know who the REAL god is, and those of us who aren’t Jewish or Muslim are just praying he shows up a lot more.

I think humanity has “sacrificed” enough.
