Once again, I am struck by the violence ordered by God in the Bible. This is not the God I worship and I wish people would not keep saying that the Bible is infallible. If this were true, I would have to choose the path of an atheist because I cannot follow such a god. (I have to use a small g.)
And once again, I want to point out to my Christian friends who believe that the Koran promotes violence that by pointing their finger at Muslims, three more are pointing back.
There is much to teach and guide us into love in both the Bible and the Koran. It is OKAY to reject those words that promote violence, exclusivity and hatred. If you are one of these, as I am, no need to apologize. If anyone challenges you, just say, “I choose love.”
