Um...no. The main difference between Sunnis and Shiites is that the Sunnis follow Mohammad's life, almost literally, whereas the Shiites believe that Allah is the only one that can choose a person to safeguard Islam. The Shiites also believe that Ali ibn Abi Talib is the true first of the Twelve Imams, and thus is the true successor of Mohammad.
Wait wait wait waitwaitwait...are you serious? You can't be that stupid to think that the Mormons believe that God is a being of flesh and bone. No one can be that stupid. The Mormons don't believe that. They believe that God is the same entity as all other religions, an omnipotent being. The only difference is they believe that God, and Eden, resides on a planet close to the center of the Milky Way. They also believe that only a select few, selected from birth, will have the "password" to get into God's special tree fort.
Seriously, give it up. You've clearly shown you have no idea what the hell you're talking about at any given time. I remember you claimed your dad was Muslim, obviously that's not the case because you don't know shit about your supposed patriarch's religion. This doesn't help your case, just as saying your dad was Muslim, but you mom was christian (Shariah law wouldn't allow that).
You can spout off things easily but unlike so many when I have a question about things I go to the source.. I have asked Muslims that Identify with The Nation of Islam and Sunni Muslims what they believe and have attended Jumu'ah services and asked an Imam questions about their religion. From the answers given and the classes I sat in on.. this is where i draw my information for their definition of God.
I never compared Sunni and Shiite Muslims.. so again just throwing bullshit in the air to make yourself feel smart.. but kudos on your knowledge or lack thereof
On the Mormon thing how can you tell me one thing and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints commonly called Mormons say's something totally different. I lived with a Mormon family when I was in Colorado and attended church with them on a regular basis and even was baptized into the church at one point in time. Before you can do that you must learn the Articles of faith . the tenets of the religion as set forth in the scripture of the old and new testament, the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price.
Furthermore it's true there is a planet for God named Kolob which is in the milky way but in Mormonism God isn't a a ethereal blob or ghost thingy sitting on a cloud but a Man of flesh and bone but not of blood.. God or Elohim as they say his proper name is, along with Jesus , visited Joseph Smith in the state of New York and revealed to him that he should not join any church as they all were false. Years later God sent the angel Mormon,also a being that had a physical body, to Smith to reveal to him the location of the plates of Mormon hidden in the Hill Kumorah in Palmyra,NY so smith could begin the restoration of the true church of God( Ie. minus all the bullshit as you would say it)
Now in Islam Elohim is not only the title for god but also of his angles. and God isn't a stationary unit but a revolving pantheon of successors that gain the title of Elohim or God.. whoever assumes this title makes the rules and laws mankind is supposed to abide by for an age or one great year ( 25,0000 years roughly the time it take the earth to reach it's starting point in procession) each age has a ruler the previous one was Anu or Annanuki.. spoken of in the old testament as Anuk.. or the God of the Canaanite people before the current god Yahweh ( or Jehovah) became ruler of the Gods and all others were forced to submit to his rule until we enter the next great year or Age of Aquarius and the next divine scientist or "Best Know-er" takes the helm and sits on the thrown of Elohim.. which is a title of leadership in much the same way our american president changes every 4 years but it is the office of president which is honored and not the man himself.
Jesus was asked a question by his disciples of how long they would have him.. and his famous response was until the end of the age. The age of Pisces. Isn't it interesting that all these people have the Jesus fish logo on thir car but yet don't understand it's significance
Now as for my father he was a believer in the teachings of The nation of Islam which is Islam that was born here in America and they don't abide by sharia Law. None the less if one would ask a member of the nation of Islam what their faith is they would tell you Islam or Muslim since they too follow the teachings of Muhammad out of the Qur'an
Now that we've cleared the air on the subject I can't see where i was wrong in stating that Mormons and Muslims believe that God in fact has a body like that of a human.
See this is the problem with you guys and your debates on religion.. you assume much instead of seeking answers from the correct places
