The Essence of all Religion

By: Dr. Dada Bhagwan; Niruben Amin, Editor

Those seeking to lead a spiritual life inevitably face challenges in their pursuit of spirituality and practice. As spiritual development progresses, facing one’s faults, failures, and unintentional mistakes become disconcerting – even for the most sincere seeker. One may then ask, “What are the benefits of the different types of religion? From the many religions of the world, which practices will accelerate my spiritual growth? In actuality, how to live exactly?” ...

A Good God : The Human Mind Bears any Heaven and any Hell

By: José Valteno Dos Santos; Carolina Coimbra, Editor

Many gods there are, for whom have eyes to see; in the East and in the West. Dead gods - Mayans, Incas, Aztecs and others; living gods charging dearly for their promises of gifts, and so many gods who are forged at all times and will forged. Here rises this good god, in everything compatible with his powers (omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient) and the expectations of his offspring. Truly, a god is born here who does not need to be evil in order to do good; does...

The Book

By: Siris Kane; Roman Korvinus, Co-Author

(Revised on 9/2/2016) From the point of view of a hermit, a vagabond, this book uncovers and explains the The Keys of Death and Hades. The very nature of what it represents is a direct contradiction to the teachings of the last two-thousand years. Dissecting pieces from various texts and philosophies, The Book shines a light on the various faces of man, how man resides upon the Earth, and how we as a people treat one another. It is vicious at times, truthful at othe...

Thomas Jefferson posed a question, “What has been the effect of religious coercion?” His reply was, “To make half the world fools and the other half hypocrites.” Indeed, a true fool one must be to stands before this world and say, “It is our god and no other way, and all others are damned!” —what a pitiful pettiness. With revelations as this, one is all but forced to ask, “Whose god created me? Do we not dwell in the house of the Lord forever? Is this house neithe...

Living Patiently When God Seems Far Away : A Devotional Study of Job

By: Dr. J. Allen Blair

Job provides a living example of God's matchless care and provision for His saints. Who of us is without trials or hardships of some kind? The circumstances may differ from Job's but the sorrow and anxiety are the same. But more than this, the Lord is the same. As He undertook so overwhelming for Job, we may trust Him to do the same for us. It is for this reason that living patiently is not only a requisite for happiness but a grand privilege for all who know the Lo...

Probably the oldest book in the world is the book of Job, which is believed to have been put into writing by Moses. Though it is not quite certain as to the time when the events of the book transpired, many seem to think that it was during Abraham's day. Doubtless it was no later, for there was no mention of Israel, the Tabernacle, the Temple, the law, or anything that would suggest a later date. The theme of the book seems to be, "The child of God facing trials". ...

What is Truth : Beit Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

There are many things in this book that might interest you, all of which have something to do with the Bible, or religions which claim to represent the Bible, or nations which have shaped Biblical history. There are some mathematical examples, Hebrew teachings, Bible verses shown in ways that most would not expect, and much more.

My first challenge to you is that you pray to our Creator, our Father in Heaven who I will from now on usually refer to as “our Father” or “Yehovah”. In this prayer please ask our Father to show you the truth by preparing your mind not for what I want you to see, but for what he wants you to see. Please ask him to show you real truth, not just what somebody says is the truth.

Mohammad the Prophet! : A Remarkable Tale of fortitude, Resilience...

By: Ahmed Moonamkai; VED from VICTORIA INSTITUTIONS, Editor

Periodically social systems crave for a cleansing. It is a mood created by divine will. It is not God’s duty to hold every man and place him in a particular position and induce agreeable passions. It is for man to learn, and arrive. This calls for the presence of great teachers. In social systems, where there is grave need for corrections, periodically, through the centuries, great teachers arrive. They come with the divine command to lend light to the people. Their...

Daniel : Devotional Studies on Living Courageously

By: J. Allen Blair

DANIEL - the example of a fearless life, a challenge to stand true to God regardless of cost. Here is the mighty power of God at work in overwhelming the forces of evil. DANIEL - one of the most fascninating books of the Bible, prophetic in nature, declares with clarity and certainty the personal, visible return of the Lord. Daniel is to the Old Testament what the Revelation is to the New Testament. Without a working knowledge of Daniel one cannot fully u...

It has been said that prophecy is history prewritten. Many of the events that have transpired in recent years, as well as those of our present day which have baffled the minds of military strategists, can be traced to God's Word. Daniel foretells the rise and fall of nations and powers. In fact, without a working knowledge of Daniel one cannot fully understand the present course of the world. Daniel gives the history of Jews and Gentiles. Furthermore, in precise det...

Political Interpretation of Islam

By: Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

In the political interpretation of Islam, politics assumes the central place. Every aspect of religion acquires a political hue. The true believer’s mission in life, according to this interpretation, is to ensure that just as God’s natural laws are followed throughout the universe, His shariah laws, too, must be enforced in the human world. This is a major deviation. Under normal or ordinary conditions, believers are duty-bound to observe and follow only that portion of ...

Psalmen : Das Brot der Seele

By: Ralf Peter Reimann, Editor

Ps – so lautet das Kürzel für das Buch der Psalmen in der Welt der Wissenschaft. Ihre Kraft haben sie bis heute erhalten. Pfarrerinnen und Pfarrer, Prädikantinnen und Prädikanten, Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler, Christen und Juden schreiben über die verbindenden Themen, die den Psalmen zugrunde liegen: Hoffnung etwa, Trost, Trauer, Leid, Zorn, Klage oder Musik. Die Autorinnen und Autoren spüren diesen Begriffen im Buch der Psalmen nach. Die Grafiken in diesem B...

Die 150 Psalmen haben bis heute ihre Kraft erhalten. „Die Psalmen sind für mich eins der wichtigsten Lebensmittel“, schreibt die evangelische Theologin Dorothee Sölle. „Ich esse sie, ich trinke sie, ich kaue auf ihnen herum, manchmal spucke ich sie aus, und manchmal wiederhole ich sie mitten in der Nacht. Sie sind für mich Brot. Ohne sie tritt die spirituelle Magersucht ein, die sehr verbreitet unter uns ist und oft zu einer tödlichen Verarmung des Geistes und des Herzen...

“The best creations in the world are the one that belong to the unsung spiritual powers that manifest as elysian or almost divine forms.

Fair Dinkum

By: Dave Mckay

This is the Book of James paraphrased as a comic book. It's radical dude! Using a modern Australian context and slang, this powerful twenty two page comic book will challenge and perhaps offend some, and it may even change your life! Don't be an Ozzie Ostrich and stick your head in the sand! Take a look!

Most religions do their own thing, and then use God to justify their selfishness. Don't be fooled, such religion is dangerous medicine...worth staying right away from (James 1:13-14)

Churchianity Vs Christianity

By: Dave Mckay

This is a comic book paraphrase of the book of Galatians. It uses modern situations (e.g. a church building instead of a synagogue, and reference to baptism instead of circumcision) to bring Paul's message forward into a 21st Century context.

No one has a monopoly on God anymore. He can speak directly now...like he did to me (Galatians 1:11-12).

Everything from McDonald’s Restaurants to a modern tractor and chain saw come into the illustrations as readers are challenged to consider this ancient manuscript in a modern setting.

Everyone claims to be sincere. But true sincerity is very rare...it means being willing to change when God says so.

The Liberator : Part 1: Part 1

By: Dave Mckay

The first twelve chapters of the Gospel of Luke are beautifully illustrated in this 48-page comic book. From modern applications (a teller’s window through which Matthew does his tax-collecting) to a bit of tongue-in-cheek (the angel Gabriel dressed as Superman), readers are challenged to consider passage after passage in an entirely new light. This is the first of two volumes which cover the entire Gospel. Across the bottom of each page are the relevant passages from th...

People who say Jesus is God etc, but who don't obey him, are his worst enemies.
