Cosmic egg, you missed my point completely. I was making reference to the obvious two-faced propaganda in the MSM regarding Islam, but you sailed on
past it into a promotion of New Age mantras. There is no religion 'of' peace, but peace can be found in religion.
''Work justice, love kindness, and walk humbly before your God''.
This expression from the OT constitutes the sum total purpose of the Judeo-Christian 'religion'. When we strip away the human interpretations leading
to the many and varied modern expressions of Christianity, the above quote holds true as the purpose of Jesus' ministry on Earth, and the
responsibility of those followers who [are/ should be] His hands and feet in this dark world (reaching out to support those who are in need, showing
love in a variety of practical ways).
Justice, mercy/grace & humility - quite simply, what is expected of humanity. This three-facet principle complements the 'Torah on one foot' as the
Jews would put it, or the 'Golden Rule' of Christianity (almost everyone in the world has it as their 'prime rule of conduct') - neatly summarised in
''Do not do to others that which you would not like to be done to yourself'' - or,
''Treat others as you would like to be treated'' - or,
''Love your neighbour [look after your neighbour's needs] as yourself [as you look after your own needs]''
So going back to where we left off, and the actual purpose of the comment I made, I was trying to demonstrate that you'd made an errant assumption in
your estimation of my level of understanding re: 'the way things work', with reference to propaganda machinations.
You seem to have done it again, this time with regard to spirituality...
Anyway, take care and no hard feelings.
