Motivational Quote of the Day is by Yann Martel, Life of Pi:
“I challenge anyone to understand Islam, its spirit, and not to love it. It is a beautiful religion of brotherhood and devotion.”
When you here about the Islam Religion, do you immediately associate that with terrorism? Does this association come from true knowledge about that faith or does it stem from fear? If Islam equates to terrorism then shouldn’t we associate most religions with war and terror? Over the centuries, wars have been fought because of the righteous who say, “in the name of God or in the name of their religion.” So why is Islam so different from other religions? Is it, in fact different at all?
Today to your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with David Low. David is going to help us understand Islam and how it relates to Christianity, Judaism and other Western Religions. This clarification may provide a clearer picture that people cause wars not religions.
David holds a PhD in Religious Studies and is an adjunct professor at Rutgers-Camden, Rowan and LaSalle Universities. He has an MS is Community Counseling and has worked as a substance abuse Counselor for over 7 years. He currently does dreamwork and maintains a small counseling practice. David’s first book recently came out called “Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice.”
