Since the onset of the violent protest about this very controversial movie on Prophet Mohammed and Islam titled “Innocence of Muslims“, I kept mum on producing any report on it but as at today, I’m compelled to write a report on it after reading the peaceful protest held by Arab Muslims in Israel today.
First we all have to acknowledge what religion is and how it affects our morals.
According to it’s dictionary definition: Religion is:
- The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.
- Details of belief as taught or discussed.
- A collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and worldviews that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values.
We should not blame Muslims for supporting their Prophet but the violent movement behind is the point of concern.
Apart from other religion in the world, Christianity & Islam are the majority.
Christians are taught to embrace peace even if something bad is said about Jesus whom they believe is the son of God.
As a Christian, we’re taught to avoid violence at all cost. My bible claims follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. Hebrew Chapter 12 verse 14.
If someone tears my bible in front of me, I will challenge the individual however, I will not kill him/her simply because it’s against my believe.
I have so many Muslim friends in Nigeria that are upset about the movie, Innocence of Muslims because of the way it portrayed Islam as a religion of violence. I support the outrage but the only thing I condemn is the violence that is attached to it.
God bless Muslim people in Nigeria and other parts of the world for not allowing violence of this sort.
Correct me if am wrong, unlike Christians who’ll not kill someone for tearing their bible, a radical Muslim might kill anyone who tear or burn any page of the Qu’ran right? Because that is their religious upbringing however some Muslim especially the ones I know very well’ll not engage in this type of behaviour it’s only Islamic fundamentalist that’ll kill others in support of their religion.
Christianity is a religion of peace and on the other hand, most of my Muslim friends in Nigeria are people of peace so that doesn’t portray all Muslims as violent people.
Religion Aside, Let’s Embrace Peace
Whether you’re a Muslim or Christian, let’s all embrace peace, according to an article I just read on this site that forced me to pour out my mind on this controversial subject, we do not need violence to change the world.
Muslim or Christian, we need no VIOLENCE for the outside world to be converted.
I’m not sure if there is anywhere in the Qur’an that justifies killing and violence if someone says something bad about Prophet Muhammad however, killing innocent people all in the name of religion is not just.
LET’S ALL EMBRACE PEACE, IT’S ONLY PEACE THAT WILL CHANGE THIS HURTING WORLD.
WHETHER YOU’RE A MUSLIM OR A CHRISTIAN, WE ALL HAVE A COMMON CREATOR, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, who created the heaven and the earth.
He is not asleep neither does he slumber, he is watching our every deeds whether good or bad.
He will use our deeds on this earth to judge us on the last day.
Let’s keep that in mind
God bless you.
