Religion means peace or fight..!!!
We are neither race nor relatives, nor any community. Neither are we inert. We are only souls, servants of “Krishna”(God).
Religions are meant for peace.Though why do we fight in the name of religions ? opinions are invited on this issue......

Hi! Glad to see you back again. Smile

It seems to me that much of the problem lies in the notion that some particular religion is the one true faith authorized by God. This leads to the desire to push this faith on others. It also leads to the thought that anyone who does not follow this 'God-given' faith is inferior and not worthy of the respect due to 'real' human beings. Mix in several such religions, including the inevitable factions within each, and a sense of urgency arises to increase the power and domain of one's own religion before another one grabs what is properly yours. This situation is amplified and compounded by the frequent identification of religion with culture. 'They' are not just trying to destroy our religion but our culture as well.

My opinion anyway...

RE: Religion means peace or fight..!!!
I'd agree with that, Parousia. I've always liked the idea that all religions are paths to God, and people choose which one they want, but they are all inevitably right as long as they lead you towards God.

This is partly the appeal to me about Hinduism, in that as far as I'm aware you don't tend to get evangelical Hindus, and they are happy with accepting Jesus, etc, into their pantheon. Missionaries had this problem, in that Hindus would put the crucifix right next to their murti of Ganesh.

It's a shame so many people are convinced only their beliefs are right.

too funny too funny Angelic

Ganesha is connected to the swastika Praying as some folks might be aware of.
along with the OM symbol.

So would the Christians like it if the SWASTIKA was placed next to an image or symbol representing Christ? Sad

guess what?
They used to do just that...

Note the LARGER swastika beside Christ's Monogram the Chi Rho.

So much to learn, so little time.
Good swastika site ... moSeS with a swastika on his robe as he crosses the Reed Sea too?

Swastika was one of the symbols most commonly used by early Christians, as well as the fish. This was before the more obvious cross, and probably to hide it a bit, as it was a common Greek / Roman symbol. There are lots carved on 1st & 2nd century tombs in Rome.

People who start wars use religion as a tool of manipulation because:
1. It is usually widespread over a vast variety of people.
2. A message from "one's God" must be obeyed.
3. Religion often requires scriptural interpretation and there are thousands of ways it scripture can be interpreted.

those who are taught by the right God nolonger learn war and they are being set straight in more ways than one
micah 4;1-4


And it must occur in the final part of the days [that] the mountain of the house of Jehovah will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will certainly be lifted up above the hills; and to it peoples must stream. 2 And many nations will certainly go and say: “Come, YOU people, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will instruct us about his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” For out of Zion law will go forth, and the word of Jehovah out of Jerusalem. 3 And he will certainly render judgment among many peoples, and set matters straight respecting mighty nations far away. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. They will not lift up sword, nation against nation, neither will they learn war anymore. 4 And they will actually sit, each one under his vine and under his fig tree, and there will be no one making [them] tremble; for the very mouth of Jehovah of armies has spoken [it].
