Gatherings are with trust

We can see in all cultures that many may have a wrong impression. Here the writer of the article also believes that in the West it would be considered a given that anything said to other people would not be private by default. But normally we would consider everything said between people as something for their ears and normally private unless otherwise stated.

 

Normally we would consider a form of ethics that the person spoken to knows exactly what can be shared and what not.

 

A sitting with two or more people is in the West like it is in the East considered a meeting between four eyes and four ears, where privacy is the rule of the day and one does not expect the other being a clarion.

 

We do not know why this writer thinks we in the West do not have any rules of privacy nor dignity. But spreading such stories is doing no good to neither societies.

 

The writer should also know that as for them the exceptions to the rule would be gatherings (meetings) that are considered public by nature. But even for those bible classes are intern, and as such would also have things there being said which would not have to come to the general public.

He should know that like Islamic classes or halaqas where an open invitation is sent to the community, Western people also know it is better to only relate what is part of the scheduled talk and not things said as an aside, especially if they are personal.

اَلْمَجَالِسُ بِالْأَمَانَة (رواه أبو داود)

Gatherings are with trust.

مجالس (majaalis) is the broken plural for مجلس (majlis) which comes from the root جلس (jalasa), meaning “to sit”. Basically, a majlis is any sort of a sitting with two or more people.

An أمَانَة (amaanah) is a trust, and it comes from the root امن (amuna) which means “to be faithful, reliable, trustworthy, to be safe, to feel safe”. Other words from this root include آمين (aameen, related to the English word amen), and مؤمن (mu’min) which means a believer.

In Islam, it is considered a given that anything said to other people is private by default. This is opposite to how much of the Western world operates, where all communications are considered to lack privacy unless people enter into an agreement of privacy – and…

Powerful Russia rising from the ashes

Bible in the News has been watching closely the a dramatic climax as Russia annexes Crimea and sets the precedent for future activities which will see Russia fulfil its role mapped out in Bible prophecy.

Bible students who have considered the prophecies of the Old Testament have long looked for a dominant, powerful and arrogant Russia. This understanding of Bible prophecy seemed almost laughable even only 30 years ago but since the fall of the Soviet UnionRussia’s power has been on the rise. So much so that in recent events we see unfolding before our eyes the aggressive, ambitious and powerful Russia has now reached a stage where the other nations of the world can do little or nothing to keep her inline with their world view. This rise from the ashes of communism and dominance in the East is precisely what we would expect from examining Bible prophecy.

The best the EU has been able to do is put asset freezes and travel bans on about 30 Russian individuals it holds responsible. In an article entitled “Putin laughs off sanctions as he signs bills to transfer Crimea to Russia” The Guardian newspaper reported Putin was jovial about the sanctions and even made jokes on the issue. He knows he is dominant and the West can do nothing of impact. {Russia’s President Putin and the Gogian Style Rule}

  • So what happens next? Putins project of war (opentheword.org)
    The pattern of aggression from Russia resembles Nazi Germany’s expansion at the beginning of World War II and there is real potential for the crisis to become a serious war. The situation is scary, and some Christians have wondered if this is the beginning of the end and if Vladimir Putin is the Antichrist.So should we be afraid?

    There are at least two things we should know:

    • War is a project and successful projects always have deep roots in planning. The plans for this Russian conquest project are probably larger than the seizure of Crimea. Much more is planned and this is not a good time to be living near Russia.
    • The Bible predicts where this project will go. Bible prophecy often predicts the future by showing how humans always behave. The past is the future in the Bible. For example, we were told 2000 years ago that there were already many antichrists among us (1 John 2:18) and “many deceivers are entered into the world … this is … an antichrist” (2 John 1:7). The final great Antichrist will be nothing new. He (or she) will be corrupt like all the others, but with the power to dominate the whole world.

    Meeting for the first time since last week’s annexation of Crimea by Russia, Group of Seven leaders said last night they won’t attend a planned G-8 meeting which was to have been held in Sochi, site of the Winter Olympics, and will instead hold their own summit in June in Brussels.Both sides in Ukraine’s crisis spent the day calculating what to do next, with Russia consolidating its control over Crimea and maintaining forces along the border with Ukraine in the most serious confrontation between Moscow and the U.S. and its allies since the demise of the Soviet Union.

    “While a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine can by no means be excluded, Putin must surely calculate that it would be a poor and risky option,” Roderic Lyne, deputy chairman of Chatham House and a former U.K. ambassador to Moscow, said in a website comment. “He also knows that it would trigger much deeper Western sanctions, which would hit his Achilles heel –- Russia’s declining, unreformed economy.”
