Dear All,

Numbers are relevant in Political Power. In democracies the person who gets more votes can rule the nation. They can ban other religions. They can destroy other religious books, They can destroy temples and churches, They can implement Sharia and the rule of Allah.

And religion can be used for political power. Such as when people are tortured or killed because they are converts. Or the killings of many missionaries and the burnings of many churches. Bush is not leading a Crusade, he is leading an attack on terror after all, he is the reaction to the 9/11 cause.

But the truth is that the west has overcome the numbers with the pressing of some nuke buttons that the numbers in Billions can be turned to ashes. Bush knows that. Power flows thru' the barrel of Gun. or nuke Gun. ie why the Saudis are obliging the west Mr.musharaff is supporting the war on terror.

Bush is not leading a religious war. It is a war on force and terror. If it was a Christian Crusade then he'd be forcing every Muslim to become a Christian. No such thing has happened. This entire post of yours seems to be saying numbers rule. That being said, you seem to concluding that if Islam had the most people they can force people to follow their laws and commands. Sadly, this is already true in Islamic countries where Islam is a religion, culture, and government.

They know that they can not win with numbers also.

Sigh, you missed my point completely. I am talking about numbers in relation to the truth of a religion. If you think numbers matter for Islam, then Allah is a subjective God. Whatever the case, Jesus will forever be objective, no matter how many people believe in him.

May God Bless You All
