Reader comment on item: Is the road map still relevant?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jan 18, 2007 at 01:51

It's interesting. In the Eastern Orthodox Churches on Christmas day the gospel reading is from the gospel according to Matthew. It's the list of generations from Abraham to Yeshua 'nzaret. We find scoundrels and honourable people listed there, as well as men and women, and Jews and Gentiles.

So, what does a section of scripture have to do with the roadmap? Simply this, as long as there is no room for progress or history, life will only be immutably cyclical. For how else can progress be introduced into a world that has no room for it, other than a one-to-one relationship with the One Supreme God. This goes for the person, but also for the human race. The sons of Allah have the immutable cyclical perspective of life down pat, but there is more to life, and frankly they are barred from life as it can be, indeed as it ought to be - lest they contradict what has been handed down to them for centuries: namely, Arab Aryanism.
