God is omnipotent. He created all mankind. He created the very first man. Whose dna is inherited in ALL generations since. Why would the God who created the entire known universe, be selfish enough to choose a favorite race, and then selfishly choose a special place on a single planet out of the entire cosmos, for that so-called special people? Jeezus, we are ALL special. There is no sign of life ANYWHERE beyond our tiny little planet. We are as special and as unique as it gets, as a species. Instead of celebrating God’s great gift of life, we spoil it with selfish greed and righteous indignation, acing value of our lives over others.
We are ALL children of Abraham, regardless of whatever messiah or prophet we choose to worship, so we all worship the same God. Instead of fellowship in brotherhood, we spill each other’s blood in hatred and vengeance. If we truly understood God’s message and purpose for us, we wouldn’t need weapons of mass destruction to do his work. Moses didn’t kill for his beliefs. In fact, he brought down THE LAW, directly from God himself, to his people that basically Commanded, among nine other things, THOU SHALL NOT KILL.
And Jesus Christ did not kill for His beliefs. He DIED for them, like a common criminal. If we truly believed in God, the way our teachers did, then why are we so worried about dying that we are so willing to kill for God? Is it that we would rather stoop down to the brutality of our enemies than stand up to the expectations of God?
