In bible versus quran bread eaten in secret is pleasant

In Bible Versus Quran: Bread Eaten In Secret Is Pleasant

The Water in Bible versus Quran (1)

The exact translation of the Hebrew verse, Proverbs 9:17, is:

«Stolen waters are sweet, and hidden bread is delicious»

Herein, you will see how different five Bible’s versions translate this simple statement.

As a matter of fact, I could not find any comment(s) about this verse that may encourage stealing of water.

In addition, I do not believe that the Lord God said that the «stolen waters are sweet».

Does the Lord God encourage stealing that He forbids in His Ten Commandments?

On the other hand, Mike Scott*, the minister, says: in his article, «What is the symbolism of water in the bible?»

«The Koran states, «From water we have made all things.» Water seems to play an elemental part in Islam. I should remind you that the Koran was written some 600 years after the writing of the Old and New Testaments, and is largely an answer to Christianity; therefore, we would expect to see a lot of similarity in the teaching of the Koran with regard to water.»

N.B. Mike Scott*, the minister is:

1) The Pulpit minister in Texas, Colorado, California and Arizona

2) The Pulpit minister for the Mt. Vernon Church in Prescott, Arizona, and

3) The commentator on the Television Program “What Do the Scriptures Say?”

Now, let us see if Mike’ statement about the Quran is true and valid.

Verse 21:30 of the Quran, says:

Have not those who disbelieve in Allah, Muhammad and the Quran known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, were aligned with each other then Allah has parted them and separated them from each other. Also, have not they known that Allah made every living thing of water?

Will they not then believe by affirming Allah’s Oneness and Muhammad Prophethood?

Now, you smart reader see the similarity in the teaching of the Koran with regard to water that is claimed by Mike Scott.

Nevertheless, we will talk later about the relation between the verse 21:30 of the Quran and 1) the water in Biological sciences and 2) the recent cosmological theory of Big Bang and the subsequent development of the Universe.

================

The Bible, Proverbs 9:17 (five different versions)

New International Version: «Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!»

American Standard Version: Stolen waters are sweet, And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

English Standard Version: «Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.»

King James Version: Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

Young’s Literal Translation: Stolen waters are sweet, And hidden bread is pleasant.’

================

The Quran, Verse 21:30 (four different translations)

QARIB: have the unbelievers not seen that the heavens and the earth were sewn up as one (solid) mass, then we unstitched them, and that we made every living thing of water? will they not believe!

SHAKIR: do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but we have opened them; and we have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?

PICKTHAL: have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then we parted them, and we made every living thing of water? will they not then believe?

YUSUFALI: do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? we made from water every living thing. will they not then believe?

================

Back to my question to the smart and interested reader:

Are the Scholars truthful when they claim that the Quran quoted from the Bible?

Three tips to get poland cooking

Three Tips to Get Poland Cooking!

If you’re looking for a new and fun experience, attending cooking school in Poland may be the perfect option. While it may not be everyone’s first thought as being internationally renowned for its culinary chefs, Poland offers an up and coming cuisine and a great cultural experience for someone looking for their culinary degree.
While there may be a school in your area that specializes in Poland cuisine, this is no match for the experience gained from attending cooking school in Poland. Not only will a student master the art of Polish cuisine, but they’ll also soak up the culture and tradition of this fascinating country. The experience gained there will lay the foundation for the rest of your culinary career. If you’re looking to go to culinary school in Poland here are a few things to get you on the path:
1. Consider all of your options. While Warsaw may be the most natural choice because of its huge size, some of the best opportunities are in the outlying rural areas. Much of the cuisine found in the cities of any country will be a modern take on traditional cuisine, it’s imperative, however, to have a foundation in the traditional cuisine before modifying it. Training in a small local restaurant can be some of the best experience and learning found in Poland. Also, consider smaller, private schools for more one-on-one training.
2. Check out the alumni. Research some of the famous faces that sought formal training at your school of choice. This can often be the very best indicator of a school’s success.
3. Finance your education. This is often the most important factor when choosing a school. Know that not only are there Polish grants available, especially to individuals of Polish origin, but there are also grants and scholarships that can be used from your own country to go to school in Poland. The biggest thing when searching for grants is perseverance; they’re not always easy to come by, but money is available to fund your way through school, so be patient and start researching.
Remember to follow your heart and your stomach. If Poland is where you see yourself going to culinary school, there are always options to get you there. Poland offers a varied cuisine and rich cultural experience to the aspiring chef. Remember to look outside the major cities to find the best little local places to teach you the art of traditional Polish cooking.

Southern cooking brings essence to food

Southern Cooking Brings Essence to Food

I was born and raised in the heart of the Deep South. From as far back as I can remember I remember long summer afternoons spent drinking iced tea and shelling peas and butterbeans on my grandmother’s porch. I have moved on from my roots and have made my way into other regions of the world. One thing, however, that has remained constant in my life is my deep and abiding love for southern cooking and cuisine.
I was probably well into my teen years before I realized that tea could be served any other way than loaded with sugar and over ice. It was about that same time that I realized some folks would eat vegetables that hadn’t been soaked in batter, dredged in cornmeal, and deep fat fried. Southern cooking is not for the faint of heart though it can cause many hearts to grow faint. One thing that can be said is that you’ll never find anything else like it on earth.
People in the south learned to make do with little in many instances. Some of the poorest people in America live in the southern part of the country. Of course, you will find that many of these people despite their poverty are also among the most generous. The same can be said of food. It’s the one thing that seems to be in ample supply in most southern homes and very few will turn you away with an empty stomach.
Perhaps it’s the seasonings that are often used when cooking southern food. From the crab boil and gumbo file of Cajun Cuisine to the secret ingredient that almost every southern kitchen contains for their fried chicken recipes (and no one on earth can fry chicken like a born and bred southern grandma). Perhaps it’s the Sunday church dinners where everyone shares a little of what they have with others or the love that goes into preparing these meals that are shared with friends and family. Whatever the case may be, if you ever have the occasion to experience real southern cooking, do not pass it up. You might shave a day off your life, but a good southern fried chicken leg is really living and well worth the sacrifice if you ask me.
Of course it would be remiss to mention southern cooking without bringing up some of the more delicious desserts that seem to be perfection for the south. I mentioned banana pudding above but there are so many more. Pralines are a perfect for those living down around New Orleans as is bread pudding. A little to the east there are grandma’s who have taken their lemon icebox pie recipes to the grave with them so coveted were these delicious deserts and the same holds true for pecan pies as well. We should never forget the flavorful Mississippi Mud cake though, and so many other wonderfully delicious treats that southern cooking has introduced to the world at large.
Favorite vegetables in the heart of the south as I mentioned above included peas and butterbeans, snap beans, corn, summer squash (after all, it’s summer all year in the south), and okra (fried or boiled in many southern kitchens). Not all vegetables were deep fried though few were off limits. I remember eating my share of fried okra, fried squash, and yes, fried green tomatoes. Life was good back when calories weren’t counted and no one really worried about clogging arteries. While I wouldn’t make these a daily dish in any household, I certainly would recommend trying them out if you ever find the opportunity.
Another great thing about southern cooking is the wonderful fried seafood that seems to abound. From fried fish (almost any variety works well when it’s southern fried) to fried oysters, seafood just seems to taste so much better in the south. If you are hoping to learn some of the southern cooking and cuisine you will most likely need to order your spices and have them shipped unless your grocery store has a  rather extensive ‘exotic’ foods selection. You can sometimes find great southern seasonings on the International food aisles in grocery stores as well. If you want to really treat your family to an outstanding meal, you should really try southern cooking for the night.

The chinese cooking wok the traditional way to prepare authentic chinese food

The Chinese Cooking Wok — The Traditional Way To Prepare Authentic Chinese Food!

Since ancient times, the Chinese have been known to be hung up on tradition, especially where cooking methods are concerned. They are equally concerned about nourishing food cooked in proper sanitary conditions. It is with this view in mind that the Chinese cooking wok has found its own niche in every Chinese kitchen around the world. In addition, the Chinese realized that cooking in utensils handed down from ancient times have helped their dishes to retain their exact, original flavors.
With Chinese food being so popular, it is no wonder then that the Chinese cooking wok is making its way into American households and other parts of the world. Many international stores today stock this main Chinese utensil along with others.
Why is the Chinese cooking wok so unique? To get an answer to this question, we will have to delve into its design.
The wok is basically prepared from carbon steel or iron. The round-bottomed utensil is hammered into shape by hand. The wok therefore becomes delicately flared at the edges, enabling food to be thrust inside with ease. When the perfect shape is attained, the wok is flipped from outside or inside. The rounded bottom of the wok helps it fit over the stove perfectly. Bare metal handles are more commonly used for the Chinese cooking wok. Such handles are known as loop handles. Another type of handle is the stick handle which is formed from carbon steel and resembles Teflon. Thus, the vessel is now ready for anything such as stewing, braising, steaming, deep frying, or preparing soups.
In an attempt to copy the Chinese cooking wok, yet make it more suitable for Western styles of cooking, Westerners have developed woks looking like flat-bottomed frying pans. For more compatibility, woks with double handles are more popular than those with single handles. The bottom of the wok is fitted with an adaptor ring. This helps to retain the wok’s grip over the top of the stove (western ranges).
The very design of the original Chinese cooking wok itself should be enough to convince anyone that it is better than a frying pan any day! Oil intake is very less, food can be tossed properly, and best of all, there is uniform distribution of heat. So copies can never take the place of the original.
In conclusion, the size of the Chinese cooking wok is designed to suit the purpose. A small family can make do with a wok measuring 36 centimeters, while a still larger one is suitable for a bigger household. The largest-sized ones are used only in restaurants for large-scale cooking.

If it turns golden brown after one minute, the oil is at the right temperature for deep-frying.
If the oil is too hot, the food will be cooked on the outside and still partially raw inside. If the oil is not hot enough, the food will soak it up and come out soggy.
