Scriptures can be blurry - more so if one doesn't search them!
Jesus: I am ..... come to give life ..... not come to destroy .....
Truly, there is no directive to kill anyone for Christianity! So what happened?
Nations do defend borders, alas religion is made a scapegoat!
Search for me .... Jer. 29:13. ******** Read:
Is God in control, allowing everything for us to understand?
Is God a Heavenly Father, simply the Creator, a Taskmaster or beyond comprehension or unknowable?
God is in control and allows nations, religions, powers and even the devil, to reveal the Messiah.
God speaks with the devils! Can’t different religions communicate to improve the lives of the less fortunate?

And God ..... divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. (Gen 1:7).
And the LORD said unto Moses ..... lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea (Exo 14:15-16). For more read:
Racism is the border-line of most nations they protect religiously. Is racism a religious or scientific blend? Has man or religion fostered racism? Did racism lead to religion as we now know it; with diverse laws and tenets to overcome racism?
Isn't it reverse racism to point fingers of racism without examples of tolerance?
Do nations undertake the responsibility to represent race, religion or else?
To know more read:
Racism needs the love of Jesus. Does any nation have the responsibility to represent Christianity or is church / state separation inherently Christian, with Church a unique Diplomatic Mission / entity?
Jesus: I will build my church … against the gates of hell. (Note: not a nation!)
Also, Jesus: My kingdom is not of this world.
Is there anything in the New Testament to contradict the above?
To find out read:
Church is a unique DIPLOMATIC entity that nations abused through history due to zeal, fear, greed or national goals.
Lack of New Testament insight missed the message: No directive to kill anyone for Christianity.
Is education alone a panacea for peace, understanding and love?
Ignorance enabled Hitler to control churches in the run up to World War II and its Holocaust.
Astonishingly , Germany's literacy rate was 100% - 400 years after it pioneered the printing of the Holy Bible!
Ignorance of the New Testament led to abuse of Science, WWII and the Holocaust the most heinous crime ever.
New Testament wisdom could have saved WWII and the lives of 70 million worldwide including 6 million Jews.
Reading the Holy Bible becomes all the more relevant to prevent abuse of church and religion.
Reading these 66 books of the Holy Bible takes around 70 hours.
WHICH NATION REFLECTS THIS:
Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son. He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment. The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor. They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth. In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. (Psl 72:1-8)
Rest, love, joy and peace are the attributes of every household on our planet!
Jesus conveyed these and more from a heavenly household perspective!
Christianity doesn't impose laws on nations. They apply their own laws!
Women note: Jesus removed harassment and abuse of women 2000 years ago. For the truth read:
All of creation believe in the Almighty, even devils believe in God. However, what or how is your relationship with the Almighty?
Fathom the Divine seek to do simply as its name suggests through fostering the reading of the Holy Bible. Though the focus is the New Testament, to remove misgivings about Christianity that result in the misrepresentation of Christ Jesus, it also seeks to highlight the reading of the Old Testament, enabling the reader to set apart law and grace. Reading the scriptures often and entirely helps to grasp this, while building and confirming the faith.
From a worldly perspective, the US Constitution is 200+ years old and has gone from a 13 pages document to 20,000+ pages of federal law. Incredibly, the New Testament message or constitution is 2000 years old and is free from any such documents of law, as it is free from the establishment of religion. In Christ, freedom from the establishment of religion has given Christians the privilege to approach our Heavenly Father and much more through love rather than the fear of a plethora of laws and their adherence.
One may also sense that just as rest, love, joy and peace are the attributes of every household on our planet, Jesus conveys these attributes from a heavenly perspective for the children of the household of God. And some may even note: as one steps out of their house / household one is bound by the law! Through simply observations one can fathom the Divine privilege received due to Christ Jesus.
And, reading the Holy Bible in the lobby while my wife had her three hour dialysis (about the length of a movie) gradually led to the 28 Days Holy Bible Adventure, to fathom the Divine.
Yet God did not do likewise as revenge.
Imagine, man began murder / killing and God is made the scapegoat!
Are not Christians responsible for not conveying the truth and
is it because we do not fathom the Holy Bible?
Do we not have the responsibility to find the truth by reading the Holy Bible?
The nation of origin of this scribe is Pakistan that marks its independence from Britain and separation from India as a major Muslim country on August 14, 1947, with huge potential! Its people are affectionate, while politics and religious anomalies can have their toll as in any country seeking laws or obligated thus. Our family had accepted Christ over a generation earlier.
Christ says: be merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Curiously, the Quran asserts - repeatedly, for a purpose - that God is merciful! Christians are and can bridge diversities between religions and nations by reflecting this attribute of God, while we have the privilege of not only loving others, but bless and do not curse; even ones enemies. Surely, we can be praying for others, including Muslims, more so, knowing that following Christ is a Holy Spirit born-again freedom of choice - not for all - yet exceptionally available freely!
READING THE BIBLE EXPOSES & EMBOLDENS LOVE!
