Don’t Convert. Expand!

"Mark" asks how he can get started "dealing with the crazies" in a "different way," without giving up his religion and without having to "kill anyone."

It certainly seems that life would be much simpler if we could just kill all the so-called "crazies" and go on with the endless verbal fights and hatreds we had, before the "fanatics" began to tell the world to "convert or die." The truth is, Muslims have been using that "battle-call" on individual groups throughout their history. But now they can speak to the whole world via television, so everyone is finally hearing them!

I will answer Mark and the people he calls "crazies" with the same advice—because it holds true for both sides of this explosive argument! I urge you to EXPAND your understanding of God by listening to ALL the Prophets. (The quickest way to do it is to read my book, "Of Promises and Previews: Urgent Old Messages for a New Millennium.")

If you will become acquainted with all the Prophets, you’ll learn:

The Prophets of Judaism introduced the world to the One and Only Creator of everything, the Single Source of all the energy in the universe.

Jesus and his disciples introduced the world to the promised Messiah, who will, eventually, rule the world with wisdom and justice, which humans are finally beginning to realize we simply aren’t able to do for ourselves!

Muhammad introduced billions of idolaters to the Lord God (which Christian "missionaries" could not persuade). But, he also corrected the erroneous interpretations of the Jewish and Christian clergies. The Jewish clergy had refused to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, and the Christian clergy was calling Jesus "God." Of course, those "corrections" only made Jews and Christians hate Muhammad and call him and his religion "frauds."

The question is, after all these centuries, are we ready to learn from ALL the Prophets. Or are we only ready to kill each other on a large enough scale to wipe out our past!
