Religion is fine until people get a hold of it!

Best Answer

Matthew 13:33 "Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit." In more colloquial terms, You are know by your action. If they support war, they really aren't loving. <br />
<br />
(This ignores the logic that Pat Robertson once put forth, that the genocide Moses committed was loving because it prevented the killed from having children who would spend eternity in hell for believing in the wrong god.)

Sorry. Should read, Matthew 12:33

Best Answer

Because they are religions. When you boil it all down, an organised religion is always a form of crowd control, and it has to be geared to spread, because a religion that does not spread will get taken over by other religions that do. That's where the conflict arises (actually this appears to be more true for monotheistic religions, the polys have more of a fudge factor for peace).

Best Answer

Religions don't cause war most of the time; they are merely used as an excuse for it, or are ancillary to another political issue.

Great question. Why?

Best Answer

The idea that Christianity has caused "so many wars" is a myth. You have to go way back to the Thirty Year's War in the 17th century pitting Catholics against Protestants to find a war that really had anything to do with Christianity. And even in that war, France was on the "Protestant" side, so clearly it had much to do with great power rivalries.<br />
<br />
Islam does indeed cause a lot of wars, but since when is Islam a religion that supports love? Islam teaches that Allah is mad as hell at those who don't believe in Muhammad and wants revenge on them as quickly as possible.

Best Answer

The only true love there is in the world is the love of Jesus Christ. We love because Jesus loved us first. Unfortunately many of the wars originated in the middle east over land and territorial disputes. This is not as God would want it to be and someday, Christ will be coming back to restore all things.
