in response to reader comment: Verses of Quran, religious scriptures, and fighting the wrong battle

Many have wondered, that if Christianity were the faith system based upon the 'love of God,' why do Christians fight amongst other Christians as much as they might fight against other belief systems. Once Christians are jousting amongst themselves for the varying opinions of gnostic versus the variant versions of Scriptural translations (Hebrew, Greek, Roman, Aramaic-Syriac, and the multitude of English versions of Scriptures, et al) of the Gospel message, the enemies of of Christianity can sit back and throw rocks at the theocratic philosophies that comprise the Judeo-Christian belief ethic and make life hard for believing in such. But this is exactly what happened to the Messianic witness, even long before the English versions that the later Crusades helped produce in the later Middle Ages and the Quran had accomplished just exactly that, all by itself. All religious battles are wrong battles; but they are the evidence that humanity does not know where to find spiritual peace in its fallen nature and only One Savior came to send the Gospel message of salvation, for which the reward is peace of mind.
