To save time and space this morning I will forgo Webster’s definitions of winners and losers because if you don’t know who you are by now, Webster can’t help you.
Yesterday I imparted my opinion concerning Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul’s concern over his neighbor Isis’s “unorthodox” aggression against its Muslim brothers.
It’s funny how folks get “clannish” when they come to the realization that their (wealth and celebrity) are no longer enough to shield their necks from an axe.
A simple verse known to every five-year-old who has spent more than five minutes in Sunday school…
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Aggression is every bit (as much a part) of human nature as preservation. Homo sapiens are and have always been one of the most, if not (the most) violent creatures on the planet.
Which, when considering the fact that God provided us with the capacity to create tools (beyond the imagination) of any other creatures, we are, and/or, we have the capacity to be the most dangerous creatures in the universe.
Which of course is why God also provided us (mankind) with a capacity for benevolence, compassion and reason, so that we (mankind) could contain, or, overcome our “proclivity ” to dismiss the value of life.
Question: Who, and/or, what is God?
Conventional authority, and/or, The Holy Bible, ..in simplest terms, describes God as the creator of the universe and the source of all “moral authority,” and/or, the supreme being.
According to Webster: “mor·al,” adj. (In context) Conforming to standards of what is right or just in behavior; virtuous.
By this measure, Allah is not a God, he’s a monster as there is absolutely nothing “good or virtuous” about slaughtering a human being for power or profit.
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
