Time and again the news in recent years is filled with actions and words of hate. You have a man that calls himself a “reverend” and even holds a Bible saying that all cops hate all blacks. Yet does not police forces throughout this nation have black people within them and even leading them. The very sentence this person states negates itself showing that it is a lie. Yet thousands listen to him as if he is the new messiah and will bring paradise unto them that listen. He has been preaching these same words since the 1970s, should not the paradise have been reached by now? Yet it is worse than ever for those that listen to this man that lives a luxurious life style as he hob knobs with the rich and powerful as he avoids paying his own taxes that will in turn help to improve things for those that he claims he wishes to help.
Then we have a group of men that have taken words out of context in the Qur’an. They say live their way or die a horrible death. Hundreds if not thousands have been behead, several of them recorded and shown throughout the world to promote their way of view and to bring others to their “cause.” They have declared war upon the world and most of the world sits back and does nothing or even runs the other way. Jesus says blessed is the peacemaker, yet at this time no one is trying to make peace they are encouraging, promoting and allowing war because they do not wish to infringe upon the rights of those that are committing these horrors and statements of hate. Their excuse in the United States: “because we have wronged them by trying to impose our values upon them.”
These values they are referring to are those values taught within the Bible and Qur’an. Abraham is the “father” of the nation of Israel and the nations that follow the Muslim faiths. Abraham is the “grandfather” of Christianity since that faith came from the Jewish religion and the teachings of the Son of God the Lord Jesus Christ.
These three religions have a common beginning and so they all three worship the same God, yet due to those like the man first described above pervert the Bible and the Qur’an for their own goals and glorification. They show themselves to be selfish self-serving, self-glorifying humans. The very thing that we are taught to turn away from. Yet they twist the words of these two books to cause those that listen to think it is the truth.
But why do they listen? Why do they not see that they are being taught lies? Because they themselves refuse to read these two books and come to understand their message. Now I can only talk of the Bible for I do not know enough of what is within the Qur’an, but the message of Jesus Christ is very clear. We are to love God first and then we are to love our fellow human beings as we love ourselves. Also in Titus chapter 3, it states that we are to follow and respect the laws of the land and those that are given the job to uphold them.
It is important that each and every person FULLY read their respective religious book. It is extremely important every person truly study and come to understand what is written within these books. If we do not we will fall prey to the wolves walking amongst the sheep and the pack of wolves howling from the darkness just beyond the light of the fire of understanding and knowledge.
Blessed is the peacemaker. The word “peacemaker” means to bring peace, which means there is war and chaos and mayhem. How can you make this peace? It is never made with words it is made with actions. These actions mean to arrest and placed in jail or even unto war. So those that are peacemakers are the police and soldiers as well as those that through action and effort cause the defeat of hate, chaos and bloodshed.
It is good to love all including your enemy, but if your enemy comes at you to kill you have the right defend yourself. If this was not so there would not be nearly one hundred battles listed in the Bible supporting this.
Matthew 15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
