Conflicting Ideologies/Theosophies Coming Full Circle:

So, the contention of the ages; which society will survive the epic conclusion of long lost empires and the failed attempts to 'resurrect' ideologies in the face of failed theosophies that cannot hope to rule a world that rejects religion for the idolatry of worshipping the self above all? How does any claim of moral supremacy serve a religious claim that none are willing to serve? But a final conflict is still brewing, that a law formed from a religion is still at odds with a law that was conceived in spite of religion. Obedience is determined as the key; however, is not willing obedience better than compulsion against the will? Serving in liberty serves in love, not hatred.

The answer to this is the source and basis of why civilizations cannot get along. Mankind is in rebellion and religion does not serve to bring obedience to truth. Humanity must surrender to the truth or be destroyed for failure in recognizing where the truth is derived.

In this latest explanation of how religion not based in truth, we find that truth has been shielded in mankind's attempts to attain self-determination. As described by earlier assessments of how the written testament of the Jewish Scriptures were camouflaged by erroneous transcriptions and later replaced by further attempts to eliminate what was written in in truth, the replacements substituting error for truth and exacting terrified responses of compliance to the new religion so that the message of redemption would not be revealed. It has been a death dealing blow to most of the modern culture of the Western civilizational era; but eventually the truth has prevailed. Eventually, anti-Zionism becomes the key, revealing that Zion is the place where the truth will ultimately triumph; and the Hebrew Holy Writ was right all along when opened to the truth in love.

But here is the conflict joined; that while the world is in a medically induced COVID-19 paranoia of fear and religion is being targeted for violations of pandemic exclusion, the chasm between the law of the Hebrew Holy Writ and the Quran is still as divided as ever; and the place where that is still as much of a flashpoint as ever is in Jerusalem. Here we see the 'Palestinian's are as divided as ever as well. Why, we wonder. Do the influences of Shiite Islam provide the source of solving their identity crisis; or does the Sunni overtures of the UAE and potentially other actors in the region provide a relief of tensions as inflections of apostasy(both in Muslims and Christians alike) and betrayal (even though toned down for the moment) are set aside to see where this agreement between Zionist Israel and anti-Zionist enemies can end up?

Again, how does the tension between which legalization of religious contentions get any relief if there is no true understanding of law? When Islam covered the Middle East with a new perception of which law to be obedient to, the controversy of the supposed disrespect of the Torah by converts to the Rabbi of Nazareth, who was executed at the hands of the Romans at the behest of the religious leaders in Jerusalem. This new revelation of law was well on its way in the centuries after the Romans destroyed the Jewish Temple, only to succumb themselves in later controversy as to which law was to be observed, making the circumstances ripe for replacement theosophy and more formal theology becoming the reasons of conquest for the cause of which belief system was to survive; and which people were to survive if they did not convert to the belief system of the victors. This was the basis of the crusades, and further, the continuing voices of contention today for the Muslim way of life. Not so in true Christianity.

In contrast, the original observance of the law of the Almighty in the Judeo-Christian venue was predicated on the incapability of mankind to be obedient to the law in conscience; so the sacrifice to the law was taken on by the Rabbi of Nazareth; that in condemnation, scourging, death on the cross, burial, resurrection and ascension, obedience to the law was now by believing that Yeshua HaNazaret did die for our sins and that belief is still the basis of salvation. There is no compulsion in that; belief or not, the decision is still voluntary as long as one realizes that rebellion to that requires consequences in eternal judgment. Therein lays the difference in obedience; believing in Yeshua is based upon compassion; otherwise the issues of compulsion going the other way become obvious.
