Done a few dives into the Scriptures past few days and looking through the visor with my Incisive Christian born Buddhist Taoist Shia Vegan vision, i have spied with my little eyes some very interesting things!
Things that would bring the Arabs and Jews around the Family Table Celebrating, together with the Hindu's and Buddhist, Taoists, aTheists, and who knows, even the Devil worshippers might come out of the Darkness, together with Politicians, Industrialist & other business professionals, Doctors,Lawyers, Clergymen etc
and join in the Feast of Food that is REALLY Halaal, Kosher , amidst Goood Cheer and general Bliss..

That's Great Qassem! It's always good to dive into the Scriptures; they are full of great gems of information and lessons (among other wonderful things.) We should all set aside time each day to do this; but sadly, we (including me) don't read them as often as we could.
There are many ideas and events in the Bible that most people of other philosophies would not contest. For instance, most people wouldn't contest treating others kindly...but(!), the Bible doesn't say this; it says to treat others as you would have them treat you (as I'm sure you know.) The major issue that the others would disagree with is the idea that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah, that he was sinless (through a virgin birth), lived a righteous and sinless life, was convicted for crimes that he didn't commit (claiming he was God (He is)), was killed, then came back to life three days later, and ascended into heaven. I'm sure you know this, but people who are captive to a different message deny this.
We are called, as Christians, to pray for those who are captive to a different message. We are not called to treat them in any other way than as we would have them treat us.
Sorry, I don't mean to preach; but, I love the message and I love my neighbors (Christians and not). We are not alone, even when we feel as though we are. I pray that our awesome God blesses your (and everyone's) reading of his word and truly blesses your life richly from every word you read.
