The Christian And Racism: The Urgent Need For Good Samaritans In A Racially Intolerant world!

14 Dec

Xenophobia, hatred and racism words written with blocks on red background (All Bible quotations, except otherwise stated, are from the New International Version). Racism is defined as the prejudicial perception that members of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races. It can also be considered as discriminatory or abusive behaviour towards members […]

A church has a rat problem

The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

 man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.



Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.



The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.



After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”



The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

RATS!

1. Acceptance of the Faith is an act. Remembrance of Allah-swt is present in it, hence it is Zikr(Remembrance).

2. Acquisition of knowledge about the Deen is an excellent act and it contains the Remembrance of Allah, hence it is Zikr (Remembrance) .

3.(a). Every action whether it is a Farz (Obligatory), Wajib (Necessary), Sunnah, or Mubah (proper/permissible), includes the Remembrance of Allah, and is therefore Zikr (Remembrance) . This covers everything from worship to worldly affairs, and is known as Zikr-e Amli (Practical Zikr). It also includes Zikr-e Lisani (Oral Zikr), as recitation during Salah(Prayer) and Tasbihaat(Recitals) are Zikr-e Lisani. Similarly, studying and teaching Deen, Tableegh (preaching) are all included in Zikr, because Remembrance of Allah-swt is present in all of them. (b). The next form is Zikr-e Lisani; Tasbihaat, Darood Sharif and Recitation of the Quran are all included in Zikr-e Lisani.

According To Indian Mythology, Chitragupta Is The accountant Of God Of Death Who Calculate The Sins and Good Deeds Of a Person after Death.

This New Chitragupta Was Frustrated With His Job. He Was a New age Guy. He Was a Rebel. He Had Questions. He Believe That Every Authority Should Be Questioned Even The Lord of Death.

The Frustrated Chitragupta

One Day He Go To Yamraj and Ask Him That Why He Is Following Such an Unjust System. People are Always Miserable. A Few Handful Peoples Have Everything While Most Of The Humanity Is Suffering.

It Was Around 3000 BC. Streets Of Dwarka Were Slowly Filling With Water. It Was Slowly Submerging In to The Sea. Vasudeva Was Dead But There Was No One To Do His Last Rites. Balram Wasn’t There and Krishna Was In Tapovan Hundreds Of Kilometres away. No Smartphones Were There at that time. Arjuna Performed His Last Rites and Then He Went In Search Of Krishna.

After Reaching Tapovan Arjuna Found a Dead body Lying Under a Tree. It Was Swelling and Smelling To Much. After Seeing The Face Of It Arjuna Started Crying. He Cried Uncontrollably. His Charioteer and Few Others Tried To Console Him. It Was His Beloved Krishna. It Was God Himself. The God Was Dead. Arjuna Performed His Last Rites also.

Krishna Had Eight Wives, Atleast Ten Children, Thousands Of Friends and Millions Of Devotees But There Was Not Ten People Present In His Funeral. He…
