God's Direct and Major Interference in History

When God interferes with the human world, there must be always an enough reason.

When God led Abraham and his clan out of Ur of Mesopotamia 4,000 year ago, the Sumerians were going to lose their independence and cultural traits.  Indeed, soon after Abraham and his clan left Ur, the Sumerian kingdom collapsed and the Sumerians were absorbed by the Semitic tribes.  Today, the Sumerians are regraded as a mysterious race.

When God led Moses and other Israelites from Egypt 3,300 years ago, traditions of Israelites were about to be destroyed as they had been slaves of Egyptians.  Indeed, soon after Moses and other Isrealites carried out the Exodus, Egyptians were engaged in battles with Hittites over Palestine.  If Moses and other Israelites had been involved in this war, they might have vanished.

When God sent Christ Jesus to Israelites in the early first century, Israelites had lost independence for centuries and some dubious royal family occupied the Jewish legal power.  The religion of Judaism was controlled by priests of the Jerusalem Temple and their clans in a manner God could not approve while other schools were selfishly competing over religious hegemony.  Indeed, decades after the Crucifixion of Christ Jesus, the Jewish-Roman War erupted and Israelites were dispersed from Jerusalem and Palestine.  However, God saved both Judaists and followers of Christ Jesus.

And then, when the Vatican and Christians fixed their religion on the creed that Christ Jesus was God through the fall of the Western Roman Empire, God gave Islam to the people in the Middle East around 600, thus allowing establishment of their creed that Christ Jesus was not God.

Since God endowed Islam to Arabs, etc. there has been no direct and major interference by God with the human world.

The point at issue in this history for us is that if we admit Islam is a product of interference with the human history by God, we have to think that the major reason for His interference is a defect in Christianity, and the most plausible defect concerned is its creed that Christ Jesus is God.

Anyway, no matter whether we may or cannot accept Islam and Muslims, the religion has survived for about 1,300 years or more.  It must be difficult without approval by God.
