"All religion have been violent, including Christianity". Popular views about religion and violence are mostly wrong because most people are still religious and they never blame their religion.
I like the way Karen Armstrong writes and have many of her books. I only wish I have time to read them all but one must do what is important than like.
I checked my Kindle and I am only 6% into her latest book.
At 2% of the book, Karen Armstrong repeated herself for the second or third time which I have highlighted below.
Sure, this is not new, I have seen and heard it on BBC documentaries, but it is the way she puts things across to readers like me. This has been on my mind for many days: the necessity of violence.....good for Singapore bad for many of its people.
One important feature of the 21st century is the continuous need to de-learn. It is also what cause many to misunderstand America and gobsmacked the Chinese on and on about their greatest rival. Closer to home, our leaders are poor de-learners.
Please, what you know is good only for a time. Even if they are still good you gotta to look at them differently and therefore at a deeper level for it to remain useful. This is not new because Jesus Christ continues to ask, "Who do you think I am?"
