A Christian Perspective on The Jerusalem Conflict
Both Jews and Moslems claim Jerusalem is their Holy City: the temple mount their Holy Place. Both sides are willing to shed blood for control of this Holy Site, this tiny "speck" of geography on planet earth.
Whoever we believe God to be, Allah or YHWH (Jehovah), does He truly wish men to kill one another for control of an ancient site? Is not human life more valuable than the control of a religious shrine?
In the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel, He always places human life and need above material things and religious trappings. He himself predicted the second temple would be destroyed (Matt:24:2). This occurred in 70 AD when Rome sacked Jerusalem.
Maybe both sides in this conflict, Moslem and Jew, should take a time-out and read one of the Gospels and see what Jesus tried to tell the religious men of his day.
Ponder what it means to "Love One Another as Yourself."
HOW MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE MUST DIE IN THIS NEW HOLY WAR?
Bible Prophecy tells us this conflict in the Mid-east will continue to escalate, bringing the world to the brink of global war. Prophecy also tells of the Antichrist, coming onto the world scene with a plan for Peace, which includes the re-building of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. Yet his teachings also say that Lucifer and Extra-Terrestrials will ultimately trigger WW III and a Second Holocaust(666). (Rev:8-9).
ALL BECAUSE MEN COULD NOT SHARE CONTROL OVER A TEMPLE SITE TODAY!
God never intended for men to kill in His Name over a foundation of stones.
