  • When the power of love overcomes the love of power then humanity can evolve

Posted 18 March 2013 - 07:57 PM

From the article:

The unique importance of the Temple Mount to Judaism and to Islam makes the location vulnerable to tensions and conflicts between Jews and Muslims. Usually, these incidents originate in rumors such as: “The Jews are coming today to bomb the mosques and build their Third Temple.” Obviously, false accusations and baseless suspicions like these turn the site from a holy place of prayer and love into a site of violent political demonstrations. And, consequently, potential escalation of tension brings more restrictions and discomfort to all. Who benefits from this? Surely not the believers.
While the Israeli government ensures limited public access to the Temple Mount regardless of religious beliefs, only Muslims are allowed to pray at the place, which is known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif. Otherwise, the government has prohibited everyone except Muslims from worshipping there since 1967, due to security concerns. Nevertheless, Muslims, too, are occasionally restricted. The Jordanian Waqf which administers the site has restricted non-Muslims from entering the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque since the year 2000. What’s more, non-Muslim religious symbols are not allowed to be worn while entering the site.
Freedom of worship is an essential issue. The Temple Mount, where the First and Second Temples stood, is the holiest place to the people of Israel. However, it is no less holy to both Muslims and Christians. Since this is a location that God has announced to be a “house of prayer for all nations,” it should be a place of festivity for all believers. As all who call on the God of Abraham are brothers, Jews and Christians should be able to offer prayers there in dignity and peace along with Muslims. To cast believers out from such a place, to prevent worship there, is a heinous and, quite frankly, cruel policy, which is an offense not only to men, but to Islam. God Himself condemns anyone who forbids worship:


“And who is more unjust than he who forbids that in places for the worship of God, God’s name should be celebrated?-whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except in fear. For them there is nothing but disgrace in this world, and in the world to come, an exceeding torment.” (Koran 2:214)

You mean doing something that make sense like live together as one nation of many peoples and religions under secular laws and rights.

Think of the boost to the economy with the tourism alone.

PRECISELY....and because it is our nature to be hard headed and stiff necked we will almost have to extinct ourselves as a species before we finally learn this lesson.  Such a waste.  But I fully believe the vision this author has will come true some day.  All peoples worshiping the one true God.

Sounds lovely but it's wishful thinking. Anyways, if they ever did rebuild the Temple of Solomon, it would mean the return of animal sacrifice. That's a non-starter for me.

The book of Revelation mentions the animal sacrifice and the fact that it gets interrupted - I guess others will feel the same.

Have faith, pilgrims!

"A Scottish church has become the first in the UK to share its premises with Muslim worshippers.
St John’s Episcopal Church in Aberdeen now welcomes hundreds of Muslims praying five times a day in their building as the nearby mosque was so small that they were forced to worship outside.
The minister of St John's, Rev Isaac Poobalan, has handed over part of the church hall to Chief Imam Ahmed Megharbi and the imam has led prayers in the main chapel.
Rev Poobalan said today that he would not be true to his faith if he did not offer to help."

I figure that the big 3 evolved from the same root,and at some point split into the 3.If only they could get along,pesky artistic differences.

It is known as sectarianism.  The divisions within the Abrahamic religions -- Sunni vs. Shia, Orthodox vs. Reformed, Catholic vs. Orthodox vs. Protestant -- tell us there is inherent in the tradition a tendency to this sort of division and internal hate.

I think at root it comes from the Commandment to avoid idolatry -- that Jehovah is a jealous god who tolerates no differnces of opinion.

I think at the root it comes from tribalism and our love of feeling superior.

I believe Abraham sent away his Concubine Hagar and her son Ishmael,when another Concubine called Sarah reported to Abraham that Ishmael was making idols.Also, apparently he tried to kill Jacob.

This is allegedly where all Conflict is supposed to start.Although the site may be a bit dodgy.

Not sure of that version, I try and go by what the Bible says, but what I mean by the desendants were`nt  the Jewish people  and Christ  the desendants  of Issac,where as the Mohammed and his followers are the desendants of Ishamel. I`m not aganist any religion or belief,  just want to learn the history of why there was such a conflict.
