You know, there's a difference between sin and heresy. Heresy in the English language like, ooh, like, we have an allergy to this word because of the Christian tradition of inquisitions and the arbitrariness with which they kind of decide their orthodoxy. But it's a very accurate and neutral term for just something that is an incorrect belief, right. And so it's a useful term and one that you know, we should use and, and utilize it.

But, um, but it's something to be on your radar, right? Because once you're in the arena of Well, I don't think Islam should say that. Who's your God?
