The Coming War, Part One.

An Introduction to the"End of the World," As We Have Known It

Before examining the "coming war," as I said I would in my last entry, I’ve spent the last week reading "numberless" sites that reveal the current religious thinking and behavior of monotheists around the world. Most of the "talk" boiled down to the same old stuff: Some Muslims devoutly believe it’s time to make the world Islamic, but others don’t; Christians are busy seeking their "personal salvation" and telling others how to do it; and the Jews, as usual, are trying to survive and waiting to see what God has planned next, for them and the world.

At the end of this entry, I’ll post some URLs of informative sites, so you can see for yourself what various people are saying these days. But, incredibly, all the sites — including the most "religious" — left me amazed by their absolute silence concerning the HEART of the three religions and the HEART of their disputes: The Lord God of Abraham and His most important promise.

Long ago, the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Lord God of Abraham foresaw mankind’s inevitable "need" and promised to send us a "Savior." The Prophets of Judaism, Christianity and Islam spoke of that promise. But the manmade interpretations of those "Messianic" messages incited the hatreds that have produced our long history of "Religious Wars" and have now brought us within "sight and sound" of a nuclear "showdown."

I suggest you visit these particularly informative sites, before I begin to discuss my challenging solution to our "urgent problem."
