Menurut orang Islam, setidaknya abah HMNA, orang Nasrani, Yahuid, 
Majusi, dsb semua masuk neraka (kecuali Isa a.s.?). Menurut orang 
Yahudi, semua yang bukan Yahudi masuk neraka (kecuali Musa dan 
Ibragim). Menurut orang Keristen, semua orang non Keristen, masuk 
Jadi: di Sorga kosong, hanya ada Ibrahim, Musa, Isa dan Muhammad.
Kesepian, dong.

Subj: [wanita-muslimah] Re: Bunda Teresa--&gt;Islam Dan Liberalisme

Saya dulu sering ditanya soal Bunda Teresa juga. Saya cuma jawab kita 
gak tau hati Bunda Teresa dan bagaimana keimanannya terhadap 
kekatolikan dan segala trinitas atopun ketuhanannya thd Yesus. Yang tau 
cuma Bunda Teresa sendiri dan Allah.

Membaca artikel dari abah HMNA, ada kemungkinan pikiran Bunda Teresa 
itu dikarenakan terlalu sering melihat penderitaan manusia. Seolah-olah 
dia bertanya "mana Tuhan yang katanya Maha Pengasih dan Penyayang?"

seperlunya :
> 1) ayat-ayat qur'an tentang "yahudi, nasrani dan shabiin" di qs 2:62 
dan yang mirip dan serupa juga adalah qs 5:69 dari segi asbabun nuzul, 
memang ayat tsb meresponse sahabat Salman al Farisi orang persia yang 
masuk islam ketika mencemaskan orang-orang baik yang dikenalnya dari 
kalangan majuzi, yahudi dan nasrani bakal dimasukkan neraka. Sehingga 
banyak yang menyimpulkan termasuk abah bahwa ayat tsb berlaku untuk 
orang yang sebelum nabi muhammad alias tidak berlaku bagi orang yang 
sesudah nabi Muhammad. Kalau menurut Abah, bunda Theresa (jelas 
hidupnya setelah Nabi Muhammad) penganut nasrani yang juga beriman 
kepada Allah dan hari akhir, apa amalannya yang dikenal di dunia bakal 
sia-sia ??

> For nine years Susan Shields worked as a devoted Catholic Sister, 
working for Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity. When finally 
becoming fed-up in 1989, she left Mother Teresa in disgust over the 
misuse of millions in charitable donations that never got to their 
destination -- the poor and afflicted.
> Shields story was recently sent to the Arctic Beacon, as printed in 
the Free Inquiry Magazine, revealing how Mother Teresa really turned a 
blind eye to the poor while millions of dollars in donations are still 
sitting in Vatican bank accounts.
> Here is her story entitled "Mother Teresa's House of Illusions: How 
She Harmed Her Helpers As Well As Those They `Helped' 
> "Some years after I became a Catholic, I joined Mother Teresa's 
congregation, the Missionaries of Charity. I was one of her sisters for 
nine and a half years, living in the Bronx, Rome, and San Francisco, 
until I became disillusioned and left in May 1989. As I re-entered the 
world, I slowly began to unravel the tangle of lies in which I had 
lived. I wondered how I could have believed them for so long. 
> "Three of Mother Teresa's teachings that are fundamental to her 
religious congregation are all the more dangerous because they are 
believed so sincerely by her sisters. Most basic is the belief that as 
long as a sister obeys she is doing God's will. Another is the belief 
that the sisters have leverage over God by choosing to suffer. Their 
suffering makes God very happy. He then dispenses more graces to 
humanity. The third is the belief that any attachment to human beings, 
even the poor being served, supposedly interferes with love of God and 
must be vigilantly avoided or immediately uprooted. The efforts to 
prevent any attachments cause continual chaos and confusion, movement 
and change in the congregation. Mother Teresa did not invent these 
beliefs - they were prevalent in religious congregations before Vatican 
II - but she did everything in her power (which was great) to enforce 
> "Once a sister has accepted these fallacies she will do almost 
anything. She can allow her health to be destroyed, neglect those she 
vowed to serve, and switch off her feelings and independent thought. 
She can turn a blind eye to suffering, inform on her fellow sisters, 
tell lies with ease, and ignore public laws and regulations. 
> Women from many nations joined Mother Teresa in the expectation that 
they would help the poor and come closer to God themselves. When I 
left, there were more than 3,000 sisters in approximately 400 houses 
scattered throughout the world. Many of these sisters who trusted 
Mother Teresa to guide them have become broken people. In the face of 
overwhelming evidence, some of them have finally admitted that their 
trust has been betrayed, that God could not possibly be giving the 
orders they hear. It is difficult for them to decide to leave - their 
self-confidence has been destroyed, and they have no education beyond 
what they brought with them when they joined. I was one of the lucky 
ones who mustered enough courage to walk away. 
> "It is in the hope that others may see the fallacy of this purported 
way to holiness that I tell a little of what I know. Although there are 
relatively few tempted to join Mother Teresa's congregation of sisters, 
there are many who generously have supported her work because they do 
not realize how her twisted premises strangle efforts to alleviate 
misery. Unaware that most of the donations sit unused in her bank 
accounts, they too are deceived into thinking they are helping the

write the thank-you letters. The money arrived at a frantic rate. The 
mail carrier often delivered the letters in sacks. We wrote receipts 
for checks of $50,000 and more on a regular basis. Sometimes a donor 
would call up and ask if we had received his check, expecting us to 
remember it readily because it was so large. How could we say that we 
could not recall it because we had received so many that were even 
> "When Mother spoke publicly, she never asked for money, but she did 
encourage people to make sacrifices for the poor, to "give until it 
hurts." Many people did - and they gave it to her. We received touching 
letters from people, sometimes apparently poor themselves, who were 
making sacrifices to send us a little money for the starving people in 
Africa, the flood victims in Bangladesh, or the poor children in India. 
Most of the money sat in our bank accounts. 
> "The flood of donations was considered to be a sign of God's 
approval of Mother Teresa's congregation. We were told by our superiors 
that we received more gifts than other religious congregations because 
God was pleased with Mother, and because the Missionaries of Charity 
were the sisters who were faithful to the true spirit of religious 
> "Most of the sisters had no idea how much money the congregation was 
amassing. After all, we were taught not to collect anything. One summer 
the sisters living on the outskirts of Rome were given more crates of 
tomatoes than they could distribute. None of their neighbors wanted 
them because the crop had been so prolific that year. The sisters 
decided to can the tomatoes rather than let them spoil, but when Mother 
found out what they had done she was very displeased. Storing things 
showed lack of trust in Divine Providence. 
> "The donations rolled in and were deposited in the bank, but they 
had no effect on our ascetic lives and very little effect on the lives 
of the poor we were trying to help. We lived a simple life, bare of all 
superfluities. We had three sets of clothes, which we mended until the 
material was too rotten to patch anymore. We washed our own clothes by 
hand. The never-ending piles of sheets and towels from our night 
shelter for the homeless we washed by hand, too. Our bathing was 
accomplished with only one bucket of water. Dental and medical checkups 
were seen as an unnecessary luxury. 
> "Mother was very concerned that we preserve our spirit of poverty. 
Spending money would destroy that poverty. She seemed obsessed with 
using only the simplest of means for our work. Was this in the best 
interests of the people we were trying to help, or were we in fact 
using them as a tool to advance our own "sanctity?" In Haiti, to keep 
the spirit of poverty, the sisters reused needles until they became 
blunt. Seeing the pain caused by the blunt needles, some of the 
volunteers offered to procure more needles, but the sisters refused. 
> "We begged for food and supplies from local merchants as though we 
had no resources. On one of the rare occasions when we ran out of 
donated bread, we went begging at the local store. When our request was 
turned down, our superior decreed that the soup kitchen could do 
without bread for the day. 
> "It was not only merchants who were offered a chance to be generous. 
Airlines were requested to fly sisters and air cargo free of charge. 
Hospitals and doctors were expected to absorb the costs of medical 
treatment for the sisters or to draw on funds designated for the 
religious. Workmen were encouraged to labor without payment or at 
reduced rates. We relied heavily on volunteers who worked long hours in 
our soup kitchens, shelters, and day camps. 
> "A hard-working farmer devoted many of his waking hours to 
collecting and delivering food for our soup kitchens and shelters. "If 
I didn't come, what would you eat?" he asked. 
> "Our Constitution forbade us to beg for more than we needed, but, 
when it came to begging, the millions of dollars accumulating in the 
bank were treated as if they did not exist. 
> "For years I had to write thousands of letters to donors, telling 
them that their entire gift would be used to bring God's loving 
compassion to the poorest of the poor. I was able to keep my 
complaining conscience in check because we had been taught that the 
Holy Spirit was guiding Mother. To doubt her was a sign that we were 
lacking in trust and, even worse, guilty of the sin of pride. I shelved 
my objections and hoped that one day I would understand why Mother 
wanted to gather so much money, when she herself had taught us that 
even storing tomato sauce showed lack of trust in Divine Providence."
