“Conflict between religions threatens future of the world”
In 2007, Islamic scholars essentially told the Pope ‘we should talk’ …
“If Muslims and Christians are not at peace, the world cannot be at peace. With the terrible weaponry of the modern world; with Muslims and Christians intertwined everywhere as never before, no side can unilaterally win a conflict between more than half of the world’s inhabitants. Our common future is at stake,”
- Sixteen years later…
- Iran is on the verge of achieving their nuclear ambitions under a regime that wants Israel to cease to exist
- Nuclear-equipped Russia has invaded Ukraine for unjust reasons, destroying the country day by day for the past year
- North Korea is strutting their war-readiness offensively
- China is waging a technology war
This is not just Islam against Christian – it is nation against nation. That phrase “nation against nation” sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
2 Chronicles 15: They were broken in pieces, nation against nation, and city against city; for God troubled them with all adversity.
Yahweh is with you, while you are with him; and if you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.
So what happens when we are right with God?
All Judah rejoiced at the oath (to seek Yahweh, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul), for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found by them. Then Yahweh gave them rest all around.
