In his book, An Introduction to Hadith , John Burton explains that oral transmission through the generations aids preservation by diminishing reliance solely on written records. Manuscripts which are not protected through memorization can be altered, edited or lost overtime.
However, a book that is committed to memory by millions of people across the world over centuries cannot be changed due to the amount of people who know it word-for-word. Many people mistakenly believe that the Quran was authored by Prophet Muhammad p. In fact, the Quran is the preserved speech of God.
At the same time, one might ask, which proofs indicate that the Quran is the Word of God and not the writings of Prophet Muhammad p? In other words, Prophet Muhammad p , who was known to be illiterate, neither read any previous scriptures nor wrote the Quran. Yet, he was willing to forego all worldly glory in order to fulfill his mission. As a result, he suffered patiently through persecution and exile before ultimately succeeding in revolutionizing the entire Arabian Peninsula. Through it all, God kept on revealing the Quran to him piecemeal. Occasionally, the revelations stopped temporarily, reminding him and others that he had no control over them.

However, revelation did not come during the next few weeks even as Meccans taunted him. The Quran was revealed at a time when the Arabs excelled in oral poetry. However, despite his intelligence, Prophet Muhammad p was not skilled in composing poetry. Yet, when the Quranic verses were recited, they stunned even the most acclaimed poets in the society. Deeply moved by the rhythmic tone, literary merit and penetrating wisdom of the Quran, many converted to Islam. Indeed, the science of Arabic grammar was developed after the revelation of the Quran, using the Quran as a basis for devising its rules.
There are many miracles in the Quran which themselves attest to the fact that this truly is a divine scripture. The Quran mentions phenomena that were unknown at the time. In fact, many were only recently discovered by modern science. We created man from an essence of clay, then We placed him as a drop of fluid in a safe place, then We made that drop into a clinging form, and We made that form into a lump of flesh, and We made that lump into bones, and We clothed those bones with flesh, and later We made him into other forms —— glory be to God, the best of creators!
Quran, It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God … because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. Your conscious mind needs to remember that it will be temporarily taking a quiet back seat in this unique experience. The day of your session eat a good meal beforehand as you will need energy, but not necessarily coffee… Your session could go up to 7 hours, it varies from one client to another.
So please plan and allow time in your day for this. The session will be audio recorded and given to you on a Thumb Drive. You might remember some, all, or little to nothing of your session while you are hypnotized. The recording is an important part of the session.

As you listen to it, you will have more clarity come to you and more mental dots will be connected, and with each connection - the healing continues. Your session is private and confidential, others may want to sit in on the session, however in order to feel completely safe and to relax with the process, no one else is allowed in your session, this is your time. Afterwards if you wish to talk about or share the recording with others it is at your own discretion.
We will discuss how easy it is to allow yourself to experience this and be guided into a peaceful and relaxed state. Where your Super Conscious can be contacted and you will have access to that larger part of yourself that has infinite knowledge and answers that will help you move forward in life in the most fluid way possible. We will first guide you through regression and possibly through past lives or other experiences you have had. Your Super Conscious selects which ones are the most appropriate for you to be shown, so that you can best understand the answers to your questions.
Once we have gone through this portion of the session, then we will contact your Super Conscious. This is where the answers and healing can occur, and reasons why each was shown to you. With this the profound explanations and healing happens. They fail to realize that Jesus could hardly be a great moral teacher if, on the most crucial point of his teaching -- his identity -- he was a deliberate liar. Another possibility is that Jesus was sincere but self-deceived. We have a name for a person today who thinks he is God. Mentally disabled. But as we look at the life of Christ, we see no evidence of the abnormality and imbalance we find in a mentally ill person.
Rather, we find the greatest composure under pressure.
The New Revelations, by Neale Donald Walsch
Were he to return, he would immediately repudiate them. However this does not hold up. Modern archeology verifies that four biographies of Christ were written within the lifetime of people who saw, heard and followed Jesus. These gospel accounts contained specific facts and descriptions confirmed by those who were eyewitnesses of Jesus.
The late William F. Albright, a world-famous archaeologist with Johns Hopkins University, said there is no reason to believe that any of the Gospel were written later than A. The early writing of the Gospels by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, is why they gained such circulation and impact. Jesus was not a liar, or mentally disabled, or manufactured apart from historical reality. The only other alternative is that Jesus was being consciously truthful when he said he was God.
Anyone can make claims. There have been others who have claimed to be God. I could claim to be God, and you could claim to be God, but the question all of us must answer is, "What credentials do we bring to prove our claim? It probably wouldn't take too much more to dispose of yours. But when it comes to Jesus of Nazareth, it's not so simple. He had the credentials to back up his claim. He said, "Even though you do not believe me, believe the evidence of the miracles, that you may learn and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father. His moral character aligned with his claims.
The quality of his life was such that he was able to challenge his enemies with the question, "Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? We read of Jesus being tempted by Satan, but we never hear of a confession of sin on his part.
He never asked for forgiveness, though he told his followers to do so. This lack of any sense of moral failure on Jesus' part is astonishing in view of the fact that it is completely contrary to the experience of the saints and mystics throughout the ages. The closer men and women draw to God, the more overwhelmed they are with their own failure, corruption, and shortcomings. The closer one is to a shining light, the more he realizes his need of a bath.
It is also striking that John, Paul, and Peter, all of whom were trained from earliest childhood to believe in the universality of sin, all spoke of the sinlessness of Christ: "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth. Even Pilate, who sentenced Jesus to death, asked, "What evil has he done? Jesus constantly demonstrated both his power and compassion. He made the lame to walk, the blind to see, and healed those with diseases.
For example, a man who had been blind from birth was known by everyone as the familiar beggar who sat outside the temple. After Jesus healed him, the religious authorities interrogated the beggar about Jesus. The man replied, "One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see! Jesus also demonstrated a supernatural power over nature itself. He commanded a raging storm of high wind and waves on the Sea of Galilee to be calm.
Those in the boat were awestruck, asking, "Who is this? Even the wind and waves obey him! He fed a massive crowd of 5, people, starting with five loaves of bread and two fish. He gave a grieving widow back her only son by raising him from the dead. Lazarus, a friend of Jesus' died and had been buried in a tomb for four days already. Yet Jesus said, "Lazarus, come forth!

It is most significant that his enemies did not deny this miracle. Rather, they decided to kill Jesus. Jesus' supreme evidence of deity was his own resurrection from the dead. Five times in the course of his life, Jesus clearly predicted he would die, and in what specific way he would be killed, and that three days later, after being buried, he would rise from the dead.
Surely this was the great test. It was a claim that was easy to verify. It would either happen or not.
It would either confirm his stated identity or destroy it. And significant for you and me, Jesus' rising from the dead would verify or make laughable statements such as these:. He who follows me will not live in darkness, but will have the light of life. So by his own words, he offers this proof, ""The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise. If Christ rose, then all that he offers us, he can fulfill.
It means he really can forgive sin, give us eternal life, and guide us now in this life. As God, we now know what God is like and can respond to his invitation to know him and his love for us in a personal way. On the other hand, if Christ did not rise from the dead, Christianity has no objective validity or reality. It is all false. Jesus was merely a man who is dead. The martyrs who went singing to the lions, and contemporary missionaries who have given their lives while taking this message to others, have been poor deluded fools.
Given all the miracles he had performed, Jesus easily could have avoided the cross, but he chose not to. Before his arrest, Jesus said, "I lay down my life that I may take it up again.
