So... what's my position here... well, I think the best way to describe it is this:
I'm not anti - Islam...
... and I'm not anti-Hindu.
Nor am I anti - Buddha or anti -Taoism...
or even anti - Scientology or anti - Krishna.
Because here's the deal - we were told to spread the Gospel... and Jesus is the Gospel. Why do we tend to tell people why what they believe is wrong when we should be telling them, and focusing on, why what we believe is RIGHT! Jesus sells himself in His Word... and we should show Him in our actions.
The Gospel is faith, love, hope, forgiveness, service... and so many other things. The one word that does not fall anywhere close to the Gospel though is Hate... and Hate is what feeds these radical religious extremists.
But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness
and walks in the darkness,
and does not know where he is going,
because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:11
These radicals who hate... regardless of the G/god they follow are in the dark. And as for me, well...
"Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”
love y'all - KC
