It is written true Christianity, of which spirit truth is led to witness its own value, does not need debate to exert its truth upon the diatribes of mortal men. Actions in the frame of reference of how some of certain ideologies treat others that give evidence better than any mortal exchange. The basis of true Christianity cannot be measured by those who do not embrace its basic tenet, the love of one another in obedience to the command of Yeshua HaMashiach, which in certain circles, now even in supposed evangelical surroundings, is now being lost to the approaching apostasy, as is told by some in this forum.

As observed many times before, Islam made its appearance in the wake of the compromised witness of Christianity, the truth being set aside just as it had been at the time of the Crucifixion and resurrection. To debate any form of superiority between 'evangelical' Christian influenced improvements to society and those influenced during the Islamic 'golden age' cannot be measured equally, for both have equal damages to be considered when the truth of the Almighty Eternal Sovereign is applied. Before anyone gets too hot and bothered about an implied connection between the two religious factions, remember that true Christianity was impugned by false practitioners who claim Christ, but are lying in the spirit and killing wantonly in direct opposition to the words of Christ, much as Islam did in denying Christ.

Any representation of religion which cannot claim the truth of Yeshua HaMashiach as He has said, cannot also claim any advances which have done more harm than good to the society they came from; nor can the world. As was noticed in the recent Passover season, there was only one blood sacrifice that will be recognized in heaven; all else will fail.

When all the world is embroiled in the cataclysmic tirades of hatred, killing even the most contrite individuals of this earth will require judgment; and only a true return of honoring the commandment of love from Yeshua HaMashiach is going to bring peace. Neither an apostate Christianesque or Islamic held belief is going to prevent all of the losses of formerly excellent societal advances until that certain return brings the promised peace. List all the advances, every one; but until love is the basis towards reaching a relationship that exceeds the pride of humanity, only one way will remain to bring it all about and the peoples of this earth are not going to get it done.
