And now we have religion-based terrorism. It was reported that the terrorist's last words on 9/11 were "God is Great!" right before he slammed a jetliner full of people into the World Trade Center. I have looked at other religions because I am interested and like to find out more about who people are and why they do what they do. All your major terrorist groups seem to be radical islamic. I think they are misinterpreting the Koran. Islam is actually a peaceful religion. I have also studied a little bit about Judaism. Thats seems like a religion that preaches peace and tolerance.
you talked about all the wars that have been fought in the name of God. I am reminded of a comedian I once heard, forgive me if this sounds blasphemous, who talked about satanism. He was like "Maybe we are worshipping the wrong God. How many wars have been fought in the name of Satan? None."
Those are his thoughts, not mine. But at any rate, I respect all others beliefs. I don't feel you leave everything to God, I believe He has given us the power to be in control and relies on our faith to use it wisely.
I was once told that when you are visiting a foriegn country the 2 things you should never talk about are politics and religion. I have now violated both of those rules on this site.
