"freely ye have received, freely give" - God, Religions, and Mankind

Ginza, Tokyo

God, Religions, and Mankind

In Europe after wars and wars in these 2000 years, finally many people have stopped following the word of God.

If in the US, more wars, more civil wars, and more domestic killings happen in the future, they would also stop following the word of God.

In this context, Obama is very symbolic.  It must be the will of God that an African American is elected as President in the early 21st century.  And, as it is fulfilled, the US may be given more chances by God.

Similar to the US, Judaists were given many chances in these 2000 or 4000 years.  No nations or empires could uproot them.  Judaiasts have survived to date.  They even restored their own nation in Palestine, good or bad, after WWII in the 20th century.  They have more than a reasonable share in the elite class in the US.  They are playing major roles in the international financial market.  It must be the will of God.

Indeed, with existence of real Judaists around, Christians in the world, especially in Europe and America, can deepen their understanding of the religion and contents of the Bible.  Existence of Judaists has really helped pious Christians in understanding the relation between God and man.

Then why did God give Islam to some people in the 7th century?  What is the intention of God?  Has Islam helped Judaists and Christians?  If so, in what sense?

From a viewpoint of the whole mankind, as Judaism became rotten, God gave Christianity to mankind, since Judaists came not to be expected to work as a tool to diffuse globally faith in God.  And then, as Christians got degraded and came not to be expected to diffuse globally and fully faith in God, God gave Islam to some people living around Arabia, North Africa, Southwest Asia, and as far as Indonesia and the Philippines.

In this context, there must be something in Islam that is final or fatal to mankind.

Anyway, it is a big surprise that we have no one equivalent to Abraham, Moses, Christ Jesus, and the founder of Islam in these 1300 years in addition to no new religion equivalent to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Accordingly, we have to face the end of the world or the Second Coming of the Son of God.

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
