2nd Past Suffering Through The Koran, Sura 47 the Prophet.-pppd-175

Business If you turn back (from the Path), He will substitute in your stead another people; then they would not like you. [47:38] Apostasy and any other crime cannot be covered up with covert methods. The moon deity is all-knowing. He sees every move, action and hears every thought. Any un-Islamic gesture, motion, or mental aberration is carefully recorded by the moon deity. Know, therefore, that there is no god but Allah, and ask f.iveness for your fault, and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how you move about and how you dwell in your homes. [47:19] It is as if there is a permanent web cam attached to your body, beaming back all deeds and actions to the man in the sky. There is no escape. Most importantly for Mohammed of course, Allah has demanded that everyone follow his Messenger. Mohammed is not only the spiritual incarnation of Allah; he is also the political and military leader of the cult. …resist the Messenger, after Guidance has been clearly shown to them, will not injure Allah in the least, but He will make their deeds of no effect. [47:32] O you who believe ! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and do not make your deed vain! [47:33] For Mohammed this is the whole point after all. He can’t build an empire and enrich himself and his friends if followers don’t submit whole-heartedly to the cult. Follow Mohammed and be saved ! He is the moon-guy’s earthly representative. Kind of like a pre-modern Benny Hinn. Get close to Mohammed and you will get close to ‘him’, or ‘it’, or ‘the thing’. Whatever Allah might have represented to untutored, illiterate and superstitious Arab minds. According to Muslim liturgy, and this Sura, Mohammed who suffered a mental and nervous breakdown at age 40 is declared by the moon deity to be a ‘prophet’. Of what exactly ? According to this chapter it seems that Mohammed is little more than a warrior, a racist, a hater of the infidel, and a man inspired by Allah or ali-ilah the Meccan male moon deity, to use force and coercion to ‘convert’ or convince people to follow the Islamic path. It sounds like madness more than ‘religion’. But this is the Koran after all. Why should it make sense ? Islam was a political project for the benefit of one man and his brigand friends. Conflating that with religion is akin to declaring that 19th century Shinto-based Japanese fascism was ‘similar’ to Christianity. It wasn’t and neither is Islam in any of its forms.
