What if there was a Truth?

The great battle is volition and it's consequence. What preserves volition has evidently, through historical evidence, throughout human history, been the one constant. Volition is what continues to be preserved, here and there; societies, religions, philosophies, ideologies (liberalism, communism) that seek to render volition obsolete are done away with. Periodically events occur that tamper down if not nullify situations which are obstacles towards volition.

Yes, Christianity and Judaism have swept so far as to be pacivist with regards to implementation of cornerstones such as family. Human interpretation and miss-application of Biblical scripture has been disasterous. Something, someone has been hard at work to convolute the Truth.

This world is an imperfect world, filled with imperfect humans. There ARE guide lines, provided by the Bible. I should explain that having studied under a pastor teacher, for thirty years, the Bible in the original languages, Greek and Hebrew, that NOTHING this world has to offer has much surprise for me. The Angel of the Lord Himself wiped out 185,000 of the enemy (Assyrian army). Defense of one's VOLITION is justified. Indeed, battle and defeat of the enemy is required to preserve FREEDOM.

The Bible is the ONLY faith, throughout human history, that is based on who and what God is, NOT who and what WE are, or can DO for God. Through non-meritorious faith, we accept eternal life. It's what Christ did on the Cross, not what we do through our own efforts. Non-meritorious faith requires VOLITION, something Islam seeks to wipe out. Christianity, in fact, requires it. Ergo, it is.

It is, and will ever be. Islam just happens to be the latest attempt to subvert volition. But it is an obvious attempt, with it's own scripture instructing, condoning and commanding the destruction of individuals who choose against Islam. A religion that deals with dissent by not just punishment, but by obliteration.

"Thou shalt not murder" - why? Because it takes away a person's VOLITION. Notice, it does not say, thou shalt not kill. The ones who would and do interfere with another's volition, yea or nea, towards God, WILL BE WIPED OUT. Volition is THE ONE constant, volition is the key, and whomever attempts to subvert that will be decimated. Islam will be. Watch.

A person can be agnostic or athiest, but his right to choose is perpetuated by FREEDOM. Freedom is cherished by countries dominated by Christians. What does that say? What if there is a Truth, and the Truth values FREEDOM and VOLITION?

That Truth is not to be found in Islam.
