Allah being a translation of the word God is true, but Islam is certainly not an Abrahamic faith. It was created during the apostasy and forced onto the descendants of Ishmael and other nations in Asia and Europe, such as the people in what are now the countries of Turkey, Chechnya, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.



The Wikipedia has this to say:


Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are sometimes called Abrahamic religions because they all accept the tradition that God revealed himself to the patriarch Abraham. The theological traditions of all Abrahamic religions are thus to some extent influenced by the depiction of the God of Israel in the Hebrew Bible, and the historical development of monotheism in the history of Judaism.


The Abrahamic God in this sense is the conception of God that remains a common attribute of all three traditions. God is conceived of as eternal, omnipotent, omniscient and as the creator of the universe. God is further held to have the properties of holiness, justice, omni-benevolence and omnipresence. Proponents of Abrahamic faiths believe that God is also transcendent, meaning that he is outside space and outside time and therefore not subject to anything within his creation, but at the same time a personal God, involved, listening to prayer and reacting to the actions of his creatures.




Interestingly, Richard D. Land, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, who calls Mormonism a fourth Abrahamic religion, along with Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

"Wells Fargo ad is cleverly designed social propaganda…Franklin Graham calls on all Christians to boycott Wells Fargo bank.


“This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention.”Wells Fargo went beyond being homosexual-friendly to being a public advocate — through a national TV advertising campaign — for a lifestyle we, as a Christian organisation, believe to be biblically wrong.”

"Now hear it, O inhabitants of the earth, Jew and Gentile, Saint and sinner! When our father Adam came into the garden of Eden, he came into it with a celestial body, and brought Eve, one of his wives, with him. He helped to make and organize this world. He is Michael, the Archangel, the Ancient of Days! about whom holy men have written and spoken—He is our Father and our God, and the only God with whom we have to do." (JD vol 1, pg 50)


"Though we have it in history that our father Adam was made of the dust of this earth, and that he knew nothing about his God previous to being made here, yet it is not so; and when we learn the truth we shall see and understand that he helped to make this world, and was the chief manager in that operation.


He was the person who brought the animals and the seeds from other planets to this world, and brought a wife with him and stayed here. You may read and believe what you please as to what is found written in the Bible.Adam was made from the dust of an earth, but not from the dust of this earth. He was made as you and I are made, and no person was ever made upon any other principle." (JD vol 3, pg 319)

"Look at today on the Hebrew Calendar. And then look on the same calendar, same date, two years ago. Both the 9th and the 17th of Tammuz are days of mourning on the Jewish Calendar due to the Babylonians (on the 9th) and the Romans (on the 17th) breaching the walls of Jerusalem on the way to destroy the Temple (which happened on the 9th of Av on both occasions). Also look at 27 June 1844 (date of the martyrdom of Joseph Smith) and you will also find it fell the day after the 9th of Tammuz. This was NOT the destruction of the Jewish nation, but it paved the way to the destruction of the Jewish nation. It is a day of mourning.


Today's SCOTUS ruling concerning Same Sex Marriage fell on the 9th of Tammuz. The walls have been breached."

"Without question, the Supreme Court’s decision to impose homosexual marriage as a constitutional right is disappointing. There was a time when the Court rightly bestowed a great respect for America’s Christian heritage and to the Creator on which the Declaration of Independence was based. Sadly, those time are passed.
As Christians, we know God, in His great wisdom, established the institution of marriage as only between one man and one woman. Not even the Supreme Court can change that.
Because of judicial activism, Christian ministries can and should take steps to protect their religious freedoms. No longer can even churches believe they are immune to the compulsive and aggressive nature of the homosexual agenda.


AFA strongly urges your church and other Christian ministries to consider three recommendations immediately:
Adopt a clear statement of faith regarding human sexuality and marriage.
Clarify that weddings in your church are Christian worship services.
Adopt a policy that clearly restricts the use of ministry facilities to the ministry’s religious purposes.
AFA makes several resources available to aid your church pastor, leadership and ministry in protecting itself against the coming storm of homosexual activism.
American Family Studios has produced a short documentary that provides legal analysis of the dangers posed to religious liberty by the ruling. Watch it here. vimeo.com/131252937
Read and print this article written by AFA General Counsel Pat Vaughn. It will help your church understand the dangers of doing nothing. Will a gay marriage storm crush your church?
Alliance Defending Freedom has produced a handbook that will walk your church through every step of adopting strong marriage policies, including sample resolutions and statements. A Legal Guide for Churches, Christian Schools, and Christian Ministries
As Christians, we can and must guard our religious freedoms while showing Christ’s mercy to people in bondage to homosexuality. Avoiding problems in the future depends on what we do today.
Please use the resources provided to insure your church or ministry is ready for the certain dangers ahead. May God bless our efforts, as we stand on His word."
Tim Wildmon, President
American Family Association

Millionaire gay couple is suing to force a church to hold their wedding
Faith Braverman March 18, 2014 Faith & Freedom 
"The Antithesis of Freedom is Forced Association
DANBURY, U.K.–A wealthy gay couple has decided to launch a lawsuit to force their church to perform their wedding. The Drewitt-Barlows, a millionaire couple from the U.K, stated, “We’ve launched a challenge to the government’s decision to allow some religious groups to opt out of marrying same-sex couples.” Both attend St. John the Baptist church, a branch of the Church of England, and have been in a civil partnership since 2006. Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said that he and his partner Tony, “feel we have the right as parishioners in our village to utilise the church we attend to get married. “It is no reflection on our local church, who have been nothing but supportive towards us. We understand their hands are tied by a higher group of people within the church.” This reaffirms statements that Drewitt-Barlow made earlier this month, stating going to court was, “the only way forward.”

“It is a shame that we are forced to take Christians into a court to get them to recognize us. It upsets me because I want it so much—a big lavish ceremony, the whole works. I just don’t think it is going to happen straight away. While same-sex marriage is now legal in the U.K. after a bill cleared Parliament earlier this year, the legislation still protects the right of churches to opt out of performing gay weddings, specifically the Church of England.
Drewitt-Barlow is not pleased with the law, and said, “As much as people are saying this is a good thing, I am still not getting what I want.”

"The Ten Commandments monument must be removed from the grounds of the state Capitol, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. In a 7-2 opinion the Supreme Court found the placement of the monument on the grounds of the state Capitol violate Article 2, Section 5, of the Oklahoma Constitution which prohibits the use of public money or property to directly or indirectly benefit a "church denomination or system of religion."

The ruling overturned a decision by Oklahoma County District Judge Thomas Prince. In its ruling the Supreme Court cited a clause in the Oklahoma Constitution that states: "No public money or property shall ever be appropriated, applied, donated, or used, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, or system of religion, or for the use, benefit, or support of any priest, preacher, minister, or other religious teacher or dignitary, or sectarian institution as such."

Justices said the plain intent of that language was to ban state government and its officials from "using public money or property for the benefit of any religious purpose." In authorising the monument's placement on capitol grounds, the Legislature apparently believed it would be legal so long as the text was the same as the text displayed on the Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol, and "a non-religious historic purpose was given for the placement of the monument."

Oklahoma Supreme Court justices noted that the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Texas Ten Commandments monument did not violate the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. "However, the issue in the case at hand is whether the Oklahoma Ten Commandments monument violates the Oklahoma Constitution, not whether it violates the Establishment Clause," the opinion stated.

As far as the "historic purpose" justification goes, "the Ten Commandments are obviously religious in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths," justices stated. Justices John Reif, Yvonne Kauger, Joseph Watt, James Winchester, James Edmondson, Steven Taylor and Noma Gurich sided with the majority in the opinion. Justices Doug Combs and Tom Colbert dissented."

"Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me.”

"What a great example of the serenity and grace of a man who lives his life in service to his God and not to the base whims of man. And what a contrary picture those homosexual activists gave by subjecting him to their malice and scorn.  Now just imagine what would have happened if it was a priest doing the spitting instead?”

"The relationship between a man and a woman has a potential that is completely unique. It has attributes that cannot be emulated by any other human relationship. Societies across the globe and throughout history, have attested to the power of the male-female bond and appreciated the fact that the survival and propagation of civilisation depends entirely on it. No other relationship bears the weight of that responsibility. So, in light of this, most societies have afforded this bond a certain respect, both out of necessity and sound philosophy, and this bond was given a name: marriage.Marriage is the context in which families are formed and maintained. That’s why it’s important. That’s why it’s different. To “open up” the definition of marriage to include relationships that do not share these essential components, is to actively undermine the importance of the family, and to obliterate any reason for the institution to exist.


What Is Homosexuality? People aren’t “born gay.” Your sexual proclivities develop as you get older and go through puberty. Your attractions aren’t set in concrete from birth — they change and grow and, in some cases, warp over time.  Progressives believe that our gender can fluctuate between any of 52 different options over the course of our lives, yet they insist that our sexual appetites are somehow written in the stars from the moment of conception. It’s ludicrous, obviously, but it’s necessary in order to convince us of two contradictory propositions: 1) Gays are a community as natural and legitimate as any racial or ethnic group. 2) Men and women are groups more fluid, transformable, negotiable and indecipherable than any other entity or substance on Earth (other than the Constitution).  Through this clever bit of nonsense, they’ve managed to procure for gays the special right and privilege to redefine the institution of marriage, and for men and women they’ve created the supernatural right to change their biological nature.


The truth, however, is that your sexuality is closer to what they say about gender, and your gender is closer to what they say about sexuality. They have it exactly reversed, as usual. Your race, your sex, your species — these are categories of being. They can’t be altered or modified. They are given to you, they are you. They are part of your design.  The same cannot be said of homosexuality.What a homosexual is experiencing is a compulsion, a temptation, a proclivity. He is not defined by it unless he chooses to be. He is defined in part — at least on a physical level — by his race and sex, but his sexual desires do not control him or create him or enslave him. They are just urges. And it is simply preposterous and insane to afford special rights to a man’s urges.


There’s one other point that needs to be made here: Before the legalisation of gay marriage, the government wasn’t “involved” in marriage, as so many have claimed. It merely recognized the reality of it, acknowledged its importance to society, and took rational steps to protect this essential institution. This was not an interference. For a government to say, “we need strong marriages in this society or our civilization will collapse” can hardly be considered some kind of overreach. It just made sense. It was logical. It was prudent. Now, though, with the State finally and universally proclaiming that marriage is something other than what it actually is, we will see what government interference in marriage actually looks like. People have long complained that the government should get out of marriage, but it was never in marriage until it decided to dismantle and reshape it. This is the government in marriage, and it’s a disaster, and our nation will suffer for it, as well it should. But no matter what happens next, even if America itself crumbles and dies, marriage itself will remain what it’s always been. There is only one type of marriage. Marriage can only ever mean one thing. The Truth of marriage will stay the same, even as our society descends into total confusion.”

"In what could be considered a preview of the coming judgment from God upon modern sodomites in America, China's sodomite community faced a blazing fireball in the wake of celebrating the US Supreme Court's unconstitutional ruling on redefining marriage. Nearly 500 people were injured as a result.


freedomoutpost.com/2015/07/fireball-engu...


The China Post reports (translation):


As the number of injured in yesterday's colored powder fire disaster in New Taipei rose to 498, government officials banned the event organizer from leaving the country and focused on determining the cause of the disaster. According to health officials, more than 200 are suffering from severe injuries.


The incident occurred at approximately 8:40 p.m. Saturday in New Taipei's Bali District, where a fire broke out among a packed crowd of hundreds, many of them young students and teachers. The immediate cause of the disaster is still under investigation.


Over half of the victims are being treated at 15 separate hospitals located throughout Taipei City. The city's Department of Health is urging all residents to refrain from diverting much needed emergency hospital resources to non-urgent cases. City officials from the Department of Social Welfare have already set up posts in hospitals and are distributing consolation money to victims' families. New Taipei Mayor Eric Chu (朱立倫) has coordinated with police and fire officials in neighboring Taipei and Taoyuan City for additional resources.


The fire began on the stage where musicians were playing, but apparently it was metallic glitter particles that were ignited. Mike Adams of Natural News reported, "A youth party in Taiwan went horribly wrong last night as a special effect consisting of huge clouds of rainbow-colored glitter particles was launched into the air over the partygoers. To the shock and horror of everyone, the metallic glitter ignited, raining down a firestorm of death upon hundreds of attendees who were engulfed in flames."


Of course, Adams also blasted the state-controlled media in America for not wanting to admit that this was a sodomite party. Photos posted at Natural News confirm that this was a sodomy celebration. He wrote, "…it was sponsored by an openly gay organization featuring a sperm logo and gay men associated with an international gay modeling organization. I'm not blaming gays for this horrible tragedy, but let's not be ridiculous and try to claim this gay pride rainbow party wasn't a gay pride rainbow party. It clearly was. I thought now that gay marriage was out in the open and made universal by the Supreme Court, we didn't have to hide talking about all this anymore. Apparently, I underestimated the degree to which people still want to keep all this in the closet when it comes to gay pride public events. Somehow, it's still wrong to refer to gay pride events as gay pride events..."


Oddly, as a news site that specifically deals with health issues, Natural News claims that they view sodomy as "love" and are not an "anti-gay publisher." One would think Adams would also report on the health issues of sodomites, as well as the criminal actions of sodomites. However, at least Adams and his team don’t have a problem in reporting on this issue as a sodomite party and don’t have a problem calling out the useful idiots in the US media for not reporting it as such.   Lvzhong Ji , the event organiser and sodomite activist, has been arrested and questioned. Later, he was released after posting NT$1 million. He is also not allowed to leave the country.


These sodomites and their supporters who were injured should immediately repent as God has spared their lives. He did not do such a thing with Sodom and Gomorrah.  Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. –Genesis 19:24-25


This is a warning to those who continue to practice sodomy in America and around the world.  This is clearly within the Providence and decree of God. Sodomites, celebrating their abomination brought about their own judgment. Now, I wonder if our Chinese brothers and sisters, who are growing in numbers, will take to them the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray God would grant these people true repentance and forgiveness (1 Cor. 6:9-11) for what they have engaged in and supported.”
