An opponent (enemy) in conflict, contest or dispute
cannot be viewed as being of the peaceful sort…
to think of issuing ‘a fatwa¹’ to proclaim one deserves
to die by writing something: perceived to be a retort…
blasphemy against the thoughts of their religion and
faith, counter to their belief, or representing it badly.
So is this what would be peaceful… to gain an eye
for an eye, to remove what God has given… so costly?
To gift all mankind with life, judgement is reserved for
God alone, for God gave mankind ‘free will²’, a choice,
and to deprive another human being from an idea you
would prevent from harming, belief or human voice…
to stop, remove or alter the appearance of damage
to the respect one holds, not the same as a Brother,
to honestly think someone or anyone might, by an idea
or even thought, could alter your belief… to bother
or change what you, by belief, do cherish, this action
is to then seek to remove any that may stand in rival…
here is where there can be ‘no peaceful purging’ of
another Mother’s Son, to evoke an animalistic survival.
1… Fatwa, any decision made by a mufti (Islamic scholar who is an interpreter or expounder of Islamic law). Fatwas issued in North America found here (there are more… good and bad). The most infamous fatwa is the one issued by Ruhollah Khomeini sentencing Salman Rushdie to death. This fatwa was revived 25 years after it was first issued, see this link here. One site at WordPress says this about fatwa and is Islamic in origin.
2… ‘free will’: of one’s own free will… of one’s own choosing, willingly, without compulsion, liberty, independence, freedom of choice.
Then we have this fatwa, requiring the killing of Americans, both civilian and military, from here. Is this not judgment also? Even ISIS has no more regard for Muslims than infidels… for they kill or behead any in opposition.
What impels a human to strive to remove another human’s will (today) to choose: a religion, desire for no religion or to force upon them a belief different than their own or face (under duress) sure death? There is nothing here to consider peaceful if it is done without love. When ‘terror’ is used to grow a: culture, society or religion is when injustice is thought OK and acceptable, and the end justifies the means.
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Love has given all for me to tell any whom might read this, this is love… to tell even one in opposition to what I understand- Jesus died to save even you, my enemy… an enemy of this truth I would gladly proclaim. Repent of this hate for anyone so different… as to believe different than you. I extend my hand in love… as Jesus did to me! I extend my heart… so you too might find due cause to know judgement comes- but the judgement of God Himself and not a man at all.
There are two differing views to one experience (a reality predicted by prophetic eschatology) within monotheism; which comes from Islamic writing and Christian writing. See a piece on ‘Monotheism’ here.
Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
A link to the increasing dreams as veracity to behold- to the witnessing of God’s Holy Spirit. This is God’s love at work.
