If one just looks deeper they will see pure religion does not cause wars,[only false religion does which is sin]no sir war is the result of sin,it's desire that causes wars the desire for power and control the desire for wealth.The old testament is descriptive of violence not prescriptive like the quran ,and the christian gospel actually condemns violence,there is no violence prescribed in Christianity which is pure religion.
