a mATTER OF sPIRITUALITY

christian-convert-mona-walter“Turn the other cheek…Let him who is without sin cast the first stone….Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars…As you do to the least of these, so you do unto me…..” Said Jesus. 

All spiritual truth is simple…but hard to live by.   Sprituality has more to do with a reformation of the internal, than with micromanaging specific activities of daily life. Violence to non-believers, the division of war booty (Mohammad got 2 /5  tribute from all spoils), number of times one prays etc, etc. are not spiritual truths. Such statements are instructions (requirements if you will)

9:5. “Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun {unbelievers} wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat {the Islamic ritual prayers}), and give Zakat {alms}, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Said Mohammad.
