I have determined that I wanted to understand the thoughts of those who are Jewish, Muslim, Buddist , Christian etc.
However, I keep running into major obstacles that are hard to understand.
1. Jews claimed they are the chosen people, but God said he made everything in His image to worship Him. So what is the truth? If all humanity is made by God for God why would God seperate us to feel superior and inferior to each other and have us doubt our place as His creation?
2. Muslims claim that to see Allah a man/woman must be Holy and Pray several times a day. How is it then as a Muslim you have time to fire guns and set off bombs and rape women?
3. Buddist claim that they are seeking the calm and stillness of the mind.
How is it then that whole nations of practicing Buddists are inslaved by miltary dictatorships? Is the gun more powerful than the thoughts of a peaceful man/woman?
4. Christians claim they are the followers of Jesus Christ and they follow the 10 commandments.
Around the world the Christian world/churches is filled with meaness and anger and bitterness of actions and heart, example the Christians who attempted to steal the children from Haiti.
Where are we going? Is these religions really serving the needs of humanity now or are they a relic from a past and have no place in the minds and hearts of today's man and woman. How do we find a way to have accountability of these religions to the actions they have inspired in humans to hurt and destroy each other in the name of God? I would really like to know.
