Since the terrible events in France many have attempted to say that all religions have been involved in senseless atrocities, and thus the religion of Islam cannot be counted as guilty for last week’s events.
Is it fair to say that all religions have been involved with atrocities? No! It is not fair to judge any religion by the immoral acts perform under the name of that religion. However, it is fair to look at the theology a religion teaches and judge that religion by its teachings. For instance one can look into history and find atrocities that were said to be done in the name of Christianity. However, I defy anyone to find those atrocities conforming in any way to the teachings of Jesus. I even defy anyone to find me a single unkind or harsh word Jesus ever spoke to a sinner. Search the manifestos of Jesus and judge Christianity by His teachings, and not by the violence done in its name. One must conclude: Not Guilty.
Now hold Islam to the same scrutiny. Study Islam’s theology and then compare it to the atrocities that have been committed in its name. One must conclude: Guilty.
Jesus, what a difference,
