Nonsense.I certainly do not consider myself GOD's favorite. I don't hold other people in contempt, in fact I pray and long for the salvation of everyone. I believe that the Truth that GOD wishes us to understand is fully revealed in His Holy Word (the Bible). It isn't for me to change GOD's Word; however, if I am shown that I'm in error through GOD's Word, I'm very willing to change my understanding based on what the Bible reveals. I believe that the worst tyrant is not a former slave, but that individual who is content to believe he is GOD.You do not.
The intent was to show the truth of this poem that pertains to both Islam and Christianity and the lousy attitude of Christians and Muslims.
"Whoever imagines himself a favorite with God,
holds other people in contempt.
Whenever a man believes that he has the exact truth from God,
there is in that man no spirit of compromise.
He has not the modesty born of the imperfections of human nature;
he has the arrogance of theological certainty and the tyranny born of ignorant assurance.
Believing himself to be the slave of God,
he imitates his master,
and of all tyrants,
the worst is a slave in power."
