Does God’s Need Protection? My opinion on religiously motivated violence:


Well it hard to understand why now a day’s 99% violence and terrorist attacks happen under the name of religion. Does any religion say that’s you should bomb country or attack people of different religion because they are different colours, got different culture and believe in different faith?

Recently when Pope commented some thing on sensitive issue, we had seen the reaction of people; a nun was gunned down in Somalia after a cleric declared that “whoever offends our prophet Mohammed should be killed on the spot by the nearest Muslim.” Yemen, where conversion away from Islam can be punishable by death, was threatened to cut diplomatic ties with the Vatican. More than half a dozen of churches have been burned down. Al-Qaida in Iraq warned Pope Benedict XVI on that its war against Christianity and the West will go on until Islam takes over the world, and Iran’s supreme leader called for more protests over the pontiff’s remarks on Islam., and only two three days ago we heard the news that some Hindus fanatics forced Christians to bow head in front of Hindu God.

Well I don’t want to comment on what Pope said in his famous speech, nor do I want to go in details about Hindu fanatics who forced the Christians to bow heads in front of Hindu God or what Muslims preachers preach about religion and what Muslims should do to protect Islam from non believers.

But my question is why all these people talk or start violence in the name of religion? Saying we need to protect our religion and God, it’s our duty. Total Lie’s

 

Does our God (Jesus Christ, Lord Krishna, Lord Ram, Allah and Guru Gobind Sahib) need any sort of guards or protection, to protect themselves, their believers and their preaching? No

 

If you have believe in your religion, follow the Holy books and have faith in your God, then you should understand that God does not need any protection, he can protect himself and also other human beings, God can see who is doing wrong and who is doing right, and he can do justice. We have no rights to do justice on behalf of him. We are created by God! God created us for his own pleasure. God’s justice creates and sustains the conditions for life. God has made an all-inclusive covenant with all creation.

 

People who call them God’s army or protector of religion, faith, believes and God, in any religion, I don’t think they hold their god as a highest authority as in my opinion God does not need any sort of protection.

 

God or you can call what ever you believe in has never forced and will never force anyone to follow his religion, believes or teachings e.g. Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism Christianity and Islam, so why these people (so called army of God) is trying to force their views on other peoples of different believes?

 

God has made religion but I guess he never had clue that followers of the religion will bring bad name to his teachings.

 

God is Eternal; God does not fear death because it is a gateway created by God.

 

God don’t require any army or so called religious preachers who preach hate towards other community and religion.

 

What does God require of us?

 

Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God. Our peoples need peace that restore right relationships, preserve responsible communities, shrink hate and inequalities, and allow space for all of creation (religion) to flourish in its diversity.

 

“Lord, we need your protection,”

  1. Hmmmm. you’re right God needs no protection. But the jewish scriptures prove that at times God *did* call the jews to fight their enemies. Wars. and we christians believe that he did it and was right in doing it. But these wars were not wars the way we see them now. I could write a lot about this. Mostly, I agree with you. humanity should be loved and God loved more. from love of God we should abstain from violence in any form. Religious violence which comes from one’s own judgement about “moral punishment” for “weaker nations” (weaker i.e. politically strong and morally weak) is egoistical and judgemental, and unloving.

    good post 🙂

    PS – God always knew exactly what the result of religion was going to be 🙂 Jesus himself said, “I have taught you all myself, yet one of you is a devil” (referring to Judas) and he said “many will come in my name, but they will not be mine, and on that day they will come to me saying “Lord, Lord” but I will say to them, away from me evildoers, I never knew you”

    Oh he knew… we grieve God so much by our sin 😦 but he loves us so much and is so willing to lead us out 🙂 praise the Lord!

  2. Thats like asking “Is Paris Hilton ugly?” We all know the answer 🙂

    War in the name of religion is just an excuse. Its like when we tell the terrorists what they’re doing is moronic, they’ll go, “God told me!” Putting the blame on someone else.

  3. I agree with slim’s comment … it is all an excuse.

    I still think that the world would be a better place without religion … no chosen people who think they are better then everybody else.

    Hopefully that is where the world is slowly moving to. The secular section is spreading and has really only been allowed to do so for the last 50 years in the Western World.

  4. Religiously motivated violence is just for filling the belly…these people live by violence…take out violence from their life and there is nothing in it.

  5. God requires us to protect the innocent and follow Jesus Christ. Those who reject Jesus Christ will spend eternity in hell because of their sins. Those who accept and follow Jesus Christ will be in heaven because Jesus Christ has forgiven their sins and they are born again.

  6. “Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God”
    Well Said.

  7. People always use reliegion, as it is easy for them to hide behind it and achieve their ulterior motives… Also, it is a powerful weapon to make the mob go frenzy…. what is the most common element that can bring people together?? Religion!!
    The great leaders shud use this for global peace rather than for global destruction..

  8. Jesus said that a tree is known by the fruit it bears. You can tell when someone is truly honouring God by their religion, and when somebody is just hiding behind religion to satisfy the lusts of his flesh (which includes violence or whatever else).

    Micah 6.8
    He has showed you, O man, what is good.
    And what does the LORD require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.
