A prominent member of Egypt’s officially-banned Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Council has “sharply” denied his organization wants an Iranian-style administration, after anti-government demonstrations forced long-time President Hosni Mubarak to step down following 18-days of protests.

Esam Alarian, spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, told VOA members of his organization are only interested in participating in parliamentary elections, not the presidential vote, as speculated by some international media organizations. “Absolutely wrong; that is (a) false allegation. This is not true. We are calling for a civil state, moderate state, (and) a democratic state, equality, prosperity, justice for all and freedom for all citizens.

All are equal. Egypt is not Iran. Egypt can build its own model of democracy according to its culture and Islamic preference.” The Muslim Brotherhood has been officially banned as a political party in Egypt, but holds parliamentary seats through “independents.” How Accurate is the Bible? The trustworthiness of Scripture is essential to a well-grounded Christian worldview, since it provides a foundation for authority that transcends the limitations of human reason and experience.

Consider the following statements: The Bible says that God helps those who help themselves. I. A. B. C. II. III.

God Defined

God. History of the concept of creativity. History of the concept of god. The Origin of God | Learn The Bible. God is, by definition, that being from which everything else came but who Himself came from nothing else. In this regard, some have called God the causeless Cause. We say that everything must have a cause. However, if we apply this reasoning forever into the past, we must accept a logical requirement for one original cause that had no prior cause.

This original cause must contain within itself the source of its own being. Now, you did not ask for logical reasoning, but rather for scriptures, I do not want to disappoint you. If God is the original cause of all things, then He must be before all other things. According to Psalm 90:2Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. But more than that, God is not even limited to the framework of time. It used to be that you would hear someone described as a self-made man. This self-existence is seen in other passages as well.
