Faith, Jesus and election results
Faith is often a factor influencing or determining election results. In quite some countries, Jesus and his teachings are often a factor playing their part.
But, if Jesus were alive today, what would he as a peace activist think of the present world and the way politicians, business leaders and people in general treat their fellow citizens and Nature?
What do people believing in him or anyone caring for a better world for all think?
He would not be able to understand why so many lives are wasted and ruined.
He would not be able to understand why so much money is wasted on destructive activities such as wars while the money could be used to save many people and Nature.
He would not be able to understand the magnitude of the selfishness and greed of a large part of the people on this planet.
He would not be able to understand how people can disrespect Nature at such a scale as to endanger all life on Earth.
He would not be able to understand the excessive materialism and the lust for exclusive luxury of a large number of people especially when half of the world’s population does not have enough food or basic facilities.
He would not be able to understand the endless political bickering and conflict about imperfect socio-economic and political systems, leaving so many people out in the cold.
He would not be able to understand why religions and political parties have not agreed on a common compendium of universal values.
He would not be able to understand why some religions and political parties consider themselves to be superior to others.
He would try to make it clear that there is only one peace, one Humanity, one Nature and one love.
He would try to make it clear that most political parties are a kind of religion too. They adore money as their god.
He would try to make it clear that life is strengthening humanity or human values in harmony with Nature and being guided by peace.
He would try to make it clear that peace results from the respect of human values. Human values are the basis of a sound society and a healthy planet.
He would try to make it clear that these human values should be common to all people, all religions and all political parties.
He would try to make it clear that God or what he stands for can only be reached by building peace and that peace can only be reached by respecting human values.
Maybe Jesus is still with us today…
At least, his teachings and ideas are inspiring people all over the world to warn us all we have to change how this world is run and how Nature is treated.
