3.08.2014. I'm visiting the warm people of Pittsburgh and at www.templesinaipgh.org enjoying a Torah reading this morning. A wonderful saying in there bulletin this morning says "First we thank God for the ability to come and worship, This part of the service ends with a prayer for peace for the Jewish people and the whole world"
A Reform Jewish Congregation in Pittsburgh | Temple Sinai
Temple Sinai is a Reform Jewish congregation in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism.
2.22.2014 Well I want to share with you a personal experience I had yesterday that has caused me to do many hours of research on it, and factually find true answers. For the past three months I have, and continue to do visits to various Christian, Islamic Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, and Hindu religions throughout the Midwest, South and East Coast regions. (Please keep in mind, along with my efforts I have also reached out to many other religions and spiritual gatherings too.) I must respect the Islamic Muslim temple I attended, and not isolate them out in any way, but also share my enlightenment to everyone on what I have learned yesterday that caused me to do so much research. (So I will not mention them by name) I was sitting with roughly seven of the truly devoted followers who have been so kind as to take me in and answer my questions and concerns. Despite their belief that Muhammad is the last and greatest prophet sent by God, they still have been very kind in hearing Third Noah’s message of peace and strengthening ones connection to GODTheSource. In our many discussions over the months, one stood out last night when I was told by all of them that “It says in the Quran, the only way to be with God in the afterlife is through the Islamic Muslim Religion.” I was instantly taken back by this statement and quickly challenged it and said, “Are you sure?” “I don’t think 1.6 Billion Muslim’s believe that 5.5 Billion people (Not including those seen and unseen throughout the Universe) are all misguided, and won’t be with GODTheSource in the afterlife.” They all continued to say that it is stated in the Quran and what is written in the Quran is word from God or Allah in Arabic. I really didn’t know what to say after hearing this, and continued to listen to them share more on their thoughts involving this topic… Last night I reached out to a source to question this and I also did some research online. This morning I continued my research and have concluded that the seven were misguided in their statement that The Islamic Muslim religion believes they are the only path to GODTheSource Allah. I have read through the Quran and missed the quotations I’m about to give you, but after doing a great deal of research online, I was able to pull up factual specifics that quote directly in the Quran the differences. I have also gone a step further and did research on the Roman Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, and Hindu stances involving this topic as well. It is a very exciting revelation for me to find out that the 5 religions mentioned, do respect the beliefs of other religions and them finding their own paths… Please take a look at the articles that support my conclusion. Also if you have comments to mention here, feel free to talk about them. Remember I am always learning and evolving and the day I sit back and assume I know it all, is the day I stop learning… Thank you everyone for reading through this, I hope the enlightenment that I have experienced today, has also strengthened your understanding of the other religions. In love and understanding of others we grow, and that is what GODTheSource wants us to do… “IN GOD WE TRUST PERIOD!” Third Noah

The Quran promotes freedom of religion Quran: 5.69 Indeed, those who have believed [in Prophet Muhammad] and those [before Him] who were Jews or Sabeans or Christians - those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness - no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
Quran 2:62 Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.
Quran 2:256 There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.
Quran 5:48 Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD's revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws (shari'ah) and different rites. Had GOD willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To GOD is your final destiny - all of you - then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.
The Quran promotes friendship between people regardless of their religion;
Quran 60:8 GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.
The Quran encourages Muslims to stay polite and not argue about our beliefs and differences.
Quran 41:34 Not equal is the good response and the bad response. You shall resort to the nicest possible response. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend.
Quran 9:15 He will also remove the rage from the believers' hearts. GOD redeems whomever He wills. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise. Quran 48:26 While those who disbelieved were enraged, and their hearts were filled with the pride of the days of ignorance, GOD blessed His messenger and the believers with peaceful contentment, and directed them to uphold the word of righteousness. This is what they well deserved. GOD is fully aware of all things.
Quran 29:46 Do not argue with the people of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) except in the nicest possible manner - unless they transgress - and say, "We believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you, and our god and your god is one and the same; to Him we are submitters."
Quran 49:11 O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or make fun of your names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors.
The Quran promotes racial equality
Quran 49:13 O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.
The Quran promotes gender equality
Quran 3:195 Their Lord responded to them: "I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female - you are equal to one another. Thus, those who immigrate, and get evicted from their homes, and are persecuted because of Me, and fight and get killed, I will surely remit their sins and admit them into gardens with flowing streams." Such is the reward from GOD. GOD possesses the ultimate reward.
The Quran promotes critical thinking
Quran 17:36 You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them. 49:6 O you who believe, if a wicked person brings any news to you, you shall first investigate, lest you commit injustice towards some people, out of ignorance, then become sorry and remorseful for what you have done.
Quran 9:6 If one of the idol worshipers sought safe passage with you, you shall grant him safe passage, so that he can hear the word of GOD, then send him back to his place of security. That is because they are people who do not know.
Quran 8:70 O you prophet, tell the prisoners of war in your hands, "If GOD knew of anything good in your hearts, He would have given you better than anything you have lost, and would have forgiven you. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful."
Roman Catholic 841 catholic church 847 http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/__P29.HTM 841 The Church's relationship with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."330 847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church: Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may achieve eternal salvation.337 Bible Verses 1 John 4:5-8 ESV / 69 helpful votes They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them.

He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide for strong nations far away; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore; but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken. For all the peoples walk each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.
Jewish Jewish answer: The Torah teaches us that every person, Jewish or otherwise, is of great importance (Mishna, Avot ch.3), in the divine image (Genesis ch.5). The sages of the Talmud constantly taught us to be cordial (Berakhot 17a) and seek peace with everyone (ibid). Judaism is rare in that it teaches that those of other religions are able to merit the reward of the afterlife. And non-Jews who do decide to become Jewish are accepted fully.
Also the search on Wikipedia also reference the points that Judaism accepts other paths… http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_views_on_religious_pluralism
Buddhist Very helpful link here with Wikipedia that talks about Walpola Rahula’s comments… http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism
Walpola Rahula states: "The question has often been asked: Is Buddhism a religion or a philosophy? It does not matter what you call it. Buddhism remains what it is whatever label you may put on it. The label is immaterial. Even the label 'Buddhism' which we give to the teaching of the Buddha is of little importance. The name one gives it is inessential. What's in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet. In the same way Truth needs no label: it is neither Buddhist, Christian, Hindu nor Moslem. It is not the monopoly of anybody. Sectarian labels are a hindrance to the independent understanding of Truth, and they produce harmful prejudices in men's minds."
Also the main website of the Dalai Lama talks about Religious Harmony… Here is the link:
Due to the wide diversity in the beliefs, practices and traditions encompassed by Hinduism, there is no universally accepted definition on who a Hindu is, or even agreement on whether the term Hinduism represents a religious, cultural or socio-political entity. In 1995, Chief Justice P. B. Gajendragadkar was quoted in an Indian Supreme Court ruling: Wikipedia gives a great breakdown on the Hindu philosophy and associations with the various religions. In their research, there isn’t any discussion of Hindu’s not accepting other religions and paths… Please feel free to view for yourself…
Third Noah, I wanted to talk to everyone about an important message that I have received DIRECT from GODTheSource! I want to first explain to you the fact that my calling to the validation of Third Noah is something that has been in the making ever since my existence. I have talked DIRECTLY to GOD and the message that is being sent is a very simple one. That is for ALL who are challenged today with giving off negative vibrations and energy in the way of thoughts, manipulations, verbal, physical in any and all capacity, this is ALL seen by GOD (Nothing is EVER hidden from GOD) so all that are aligned with GODTheSource, include GOD have always been and will continue to guide you to GOD. If you continue to choose the negative path, then it is simple. GOD has said “GOD is and will always continue to guide you and work with you in reaching the path of full connection with GODTheSource direct.” GOD validated the fact that we are ALL at fault in one form or another with this, but we must learn to connect Direct and ask for forgiveness, in order to allow GOD to work in your existence. Going against this is only going to cause you more lessons. GOD loves ALL throughout GOD’S creation of the universe! Just like the pebbles on a beach are smoothed down by the motions of the water, so too is GOD’s gentile hand in guiding ALL of us to 100% knowing. If we ALL unite on this front we will see peace on earth and beyond. ALWAYS remember GOD is there and when you are willing to drop the negative vibrations/energy that is when everything will open up in your existence. This is true for ALL Religions and Spiritual paths including all those seen and not seen through the universe. May you learn to be more absorbent in the negative vibrations that test you and learn to then channel those negative vibrations to GODTheSource! Never forget this effort is of an individual effort one on one with GOD.
Third Noah here, I spoke with someone who wants to remain anonymous, he is in his 80’s and asked me what the site of www.GODTheSource.org is all about. I told him all about the site, then I followed up with a question on how he thinks he could talk direct with GOD. His reply was “that God is too far high of a level for him to talk too.” I said well if you did, what would you say. He said “I would thank him for everything.” I said that is it? He said he didn’t know what else to say or how to say it. I shared with him the experience of a roller skater or ice skater learns to skate, they hold onto something at first. You must first crawl before you walk and walk before you run. Just like a runner, doctor, preacher, singer, artist, waitress and waiter teacher, public servant etc reaches their peak, they have to start at a beginner level. I suggested to him, you love to swing on the front porch swing, how about 1 minute a day for one month, when you’re swinging, you are praying to GOD direct. He said ok he would try this, but what else could he pray for and when it goes to month two and increases (prayer time from 1 minute to more) what else could he include in his prayers to make up for that space. I then went onto to share with him how each day we give off positive and negative energies and we also receive positive and negative energies. He wanted me to explain deeper, so I said sure, for example let’s say you are at the store waiting in line to pay for your items and someone cuts in front of you. Now you can either choose to give them a positive response or negative, in a verbal way and also through your thoughts as well. This is what I mean by giving off positive and negative energies. If you give them positive energies then good, but if you give them negative energies then this might be what you can take back to that session you talk to GOD in your own unique way. I shared with him that this can’t be in a methodical or scripted way either, but more of when he felt the sincerity and genuineness to reach out to GOD direct and talk to GOD. I also reassured him that there aren’t two of the same snowflakes or people so keep in mind his conversations of saying thank you and now sharing the experiences are unique to everyone, no two are the same. GOD knows what you are thinking and doing before you are thinking or doing it, and GOD also puts people and experiences in our lives to help us grow and learn. Therefore we MUST be open to anything and everything because life is a lesson from GODTheSource… He thanked me and said this is going to take time, I then said no problem I would be praying for him. I hope this story helps and I hope those reading it will please take the time to post their stories. You can remain anonymous. It will help others connect to GODTheSource!
