The day that symbolizes the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Emmanuel) seemed like a good day to bring up some uncomfortable truths. Aside from India and their 1000 and 1 gods, religion on this planet comes down to Christianity, Judaism or Islam. Judaism believes killing goats will get you to heaven. Along with chanting certain prayers and I assume following the 10 Commandments. As Wikipedia puts it, it is an “ethnic” religion, you have to be a Jew to practice Judaism.
Islam believes the way to peace, happiness and eternal life is to kill everyone else on the planet who does not believe like they do (Jihad). That’s why the Middle East has been an eternal hotbed of violence. There’s your choice, kill goats or kill people. Well, I suppose there is a third way. Jesus. Actually, He’s not the third way He’s the only way. What’s funny is the Muslims and Jews that open their minds even just a little to God/Jesus/Holy Ghost often experience the most dramatic conversions.
God has a way of doing this throughout our history, taking the most unlikely people and working them into His plan. To make it abundantly clear that it is His doing. Not someone doing it on their own. Unfortunately, nothing will change this Christmas. “Peace on Earth” will not happen this year. Or the next, or the next, or the next. Nope, instead of accepting Jesus, stubborn fools will insist on keeping the bloodletting going. Which is ironic once again, as it was Jesus’ blood that did the job once and for all. So the other 2 religions were right in a way, there is a blood sacrifice required, just not theirs, or goats, or other people.
Sure these are uncomfortable truths that make a person squirm. Murder and violence make a person squirm too. The other 2 religions really don’t pass the smell test. Unless your mother was a Jew you won’t be going to heaven? And Islam’s requirement to kill the infidel makes sense? Its time people started calling nonsensical gibberish what it was. Jesus was born and died for you, not the other way around.
All you have to look at are trends and ‘big picture’ themes. Where do wars come from? Where do charities come from? What 3 continents have functioning societies? Why is it Muslims always flee to Christian countries? Who practices exclusion and says you can never truly be one of us? Who offers peace, love and forgiveness? Who offers murder, mayhem and dysfunction?
What’s the one spot on the globe that has never had peace in its entire existence?
Nope, until people are able to admit the obvious, we will make no progress. Some people are pagan savages incapable of civilized behavior. They are not ready for prime time. They do not play well with others. Harsh? You bet. So is their existence which has never contributed 1 positive thing to the world. If you want to end this unimaginable cruelty, you have to start somewhere.
“IDF strikes multiple ‘terrorist targets’ in Gaza in response to missiles fired into Israel on Christmas” – this just happens to be news from today, 12/25/20. Just the way it is for 1,400 years. Its what they do, its like breathing for them. And for anyone who refuses to see, no amount of evidence would ever convince them of the irrational nature of these savages. Just a bunch of gibberish dreamt up by a highway bandit.
