Religions Worship God Whilst Both Warring Sides Pray To Him

Most people, Muslim, Christian, and atheist alike, are loving normal human beings. We all share the higher attributes of love, compassion etc. 
But, Religions do not. 
Religions can be used to swell hatred and animosity against others with murderous results. Friction between humans can be ugly, especially in war. 

My concern is that any god who advises to kill people demonstrates it is not authentic. 

We, as human beings, know we should not glorify any scripture that declares God, or any wholesome spiritual guide, as an advocate of "Murder." That holds for the Old testament, the Bhagavad Gita or any other aberrant 'divine revelation'.

True divinity is not petty. It is not vengeful. 
The divine does not hate a smaller lesser being, simply because it disagrees with it. A divine being does not punish with hell-fire, people who are disbelievers of any divine truth. The divine has pity on people who torture themselves. The divine keeps a reflection in front of us that shows us that our hatred of others is

People who commit atrosities in the name of religion really hate themselves so much, they look for outside justification for their spite. They know what they are doing is so despicable they dont want to take responsibility for it themselves.

Here is a great revelation:
The divine finds atrocities atrocious. 
The Divine does not approve of hate crimes just because the are committed in the name of the divine.
The divine does not condone crime, war, murder or hate. 

These things are not divine.
These things are not the problem of the Divine. These things are the problem of those who want to commit them.
If these perpetrators had no, supposedly, god given excuse they would be forced to admit to their own motive. Their vicious hatred of others is a hatred of themselves.

The Divine wants us to behave in a Divine manner.

So we have to logically question any person or misinterpreted book that encourages less than divine behavior in the name of any god.

This should be the test of true divinity.
The mark of people who are truly acting in a "divine" way should be their "humanity."

We have to question why the The God of the Bible and the Torah and the Koran is portrayed by his writers as being so very bloodthirsty and vengeful. The Koran is in fact less war mongering than the other two. Many sura of the Koran speaks of war and killing, yet, commands the faithful to be merciful, forgiving to their enemies, tolerant of religions other than their own, protective of other's places of worship and to behave in a fair manner, with strict rules for just engagement.

By contrast the Bible describes god as being Jealous and Vengeful many times eg:

"The Lord is a JEALOUS & VENGEFUL God; the Lord is vengeful & strong in ANGER."
Naham 1:22 

"When the Lord your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you…you shall utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them and show no favor to them. Furthermore, you shall not intermarry with them…. For they will turn your sons away from following me to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord will be kindled against you and He will quickly destroy you. But thus you shall do to them: You shall tear down their altars, and smash their sacred pillars, and hew down their Asherim, and burn their graven images with fire."
Deut. 7:1-5

The Bible and the Torah are politically genocidal books in essence. They contain more chapters devoted to political conflicts than are devoted to spiritual philosophy.  Both old and new testaments encouraging the eradication of nations that are not the chosen/saved race. 

"Only in the cities of these peoples that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, you shall not leave alive anything that breathes. But you shall utterly destroy them, the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the Lord your God." 
Deut. 20.16-18

Revelations see The Messiah slaughter the gathered nations until the blood reaches the horses bridles for 350 furlongs. Why? To establish God's kingdom for the chosen few. Really, what sort of divinity does that? Is this really a prophecy that any decent human being wants fulfilled?

Wars and genocide feature in The Bible and the Jewish texts far more than the Koran - The Koran actually preaches decent and fair treatment of all peoples regardless of their religion. Whereas the bible preaches viciousness even to children:
I, the Lord your God, am a JEALOUS God, PUNISHING THE CHILDREN for the sins of the fathers for 3 or 4 generations..
Ex 20:5 

...Yes. I the lord will give rewards to the one who

Ps 137:9

Yet, All these religions worship the same god. However, the bloodiest wars in the world have been fought whilst both sides pray to him... 

EVERYONE should be looking at ALL religions and asking:  
"If you really represent the Divine personality,
then WHY are you doing this???

Why aren't religions being a force for divine kindness, peace and unity?

It is time for all religions to attune themselves to the higher divine aspects of being humane.

Paris Terrorist Are Not true Islamics or Muslims

Terrorist Are Not true Islamics or Muslims

The Koran does not condone criminal behavior.
It is time for Islamic and Muslim peoples world wide to condemn these actions of those who perform such horrendous crimes in the name of your faith...

Make no mistake - these terrorist are criminals of the worst kind according to Islamic law. For this reason the Koran commands : 

"…And whoever commits injustice among you — We will make him taste a great punishment." (Quran 25:19)

"…and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just." (Quran 5:8)

The Koran condemns murder - these attacks in Paris were murders of innocents.
The Koran condemns rape and compels all Islamic men to protect ALL women.
The Koran condemns stealing other people’s land and their food. As we see in the following verses:

"Beware!  Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim, curtails their rights, burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment." (Abu Dawud)

"Indeed God, Mighty and Majestic, has not allowed you to enter the homes of the People of the Book(Christian Islamic or Jewish) except by their permission, nor has He allowed you to hit their women, nor eat their fruit ..." (Abu Dawood)

"And if any one of the polytheists (Pagans)seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of God (the Quran).  Then deliver him to his place of safety." (Quran 9:6)

The Quran instructs Muslims to treat non-Muslims courteously in a spirit of kindness and generosity:
"Beware!  Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim, curtails their rights, burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment." (Abu Dawood)

"If it had been your Lord’s will, they would all have believed – all of who are on earth!  Will you then compel humankind, against their will, to believe?" (Quran 10:99)

Not only does Islam give the freedom of religious freedom to non-Muslims, its tolerant law extends to the preservation of their places of worship:

"(They are) those who have been evicted from their homes without right — only because they say, ‘Our Lord is God.’  And was it not that God checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished  monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of God is much mentioned (praised).  And God will surely support those who support Him (meaning His cause).  Indeed, God is Powerful and Exalted in Might." (Quran 22:40)

Unbiased Western historians acknowledge these facts.  LeBon writes:
‘The tolerance of Muhammad towards the Jews and Christians was truly grand; the founders of other religions that appeared before him, Judaism and Christianity in particular, did not prescribe such goodwill.  His caliphs followed the same policy, and his tolerance has been acknowledged by skeptics and believers alike when they study the history of the Arabs in depth.’

The Koran even insists on fair treatment of non-Muslim enemies in battle
 "Go into battle, but do not go to extremes, behave treacherously, mutilate their dead, or kill children."

"God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from dealing kindly and justly with them.  Indeed, God loves those who act justly.  God only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion – (forbids) that you make allies of them.  And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers." (Quran 60:8-9)

Al-Qarafi, a classical Muslim scholar, describes the depth of the meaning of "dealing kindly" referred to in the above verse.  He explains the term:
‘…gentleness towards the weak, providing clothing to cover them, and soft speech.  This must be done with affection and mercy, not by intimidation or degradation.  Furthermore, tolerating the fact that they may be bothersome neighbors whom you could force to move, but you do not out of kindness towards them, not out of fear or financial reasons.  Also, praying they receive guidance and [thus] join the ranks of the blessed with external reward, advising them in all wordily and spiritual matters, protecting their reputation if they are exposed to slander, and defending their property, families, rights, and concerns.  Assisting them against oppression and getting them their rights.’

"O you who believe!  Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, God is a Better Protector to both (than you).  So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you avoid justice; and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do."(Quran 4:135)

All evidence in Islamic Law points towards protecting the people of the covenant.  Al-Qarafi, another classical Muslim scholar, wrote:
‘The covenant is a contract that has conditions that are compulsory for us, for they are under our protection as neighbors, and the covenant of God and His Messenger, and the religion of Islam.  If someone harms them with inappropriate speech, defamation, any type of harassment, or is an accomplice to such actions, then he has made light of the covenant of God, His Messenger, and Islam.’

It is time for Islamic and Muslim peoples world wide to condemn these actions of those who perform such horrendous crimes in the name of your faith... These criminals are giving Allah, Mohamed and your faith a bad name - Please publicly condemn them or the media will confuse the public. If all good Islamic and Muslim men and women stand together in condemnation of these criminals acting totally in contradiction of the principles of your faith, then you will be truly protecting not only your families but also the reputation of your faith, which these criminals are turning into a fowl stench, rather than it being the perfume of heaven.
