The Dalai Lama has said: “My simple religion is kindness.
There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
This might sound as if religion as a system of practices, rituals and beliefs has been or could be made redundant.
If only, humanity tried twice in the twentieth century and failed disastrously, as much so as if it had tried to abolish art or science.
In the twenty-first century we have to renew religion, not abolish it.
But one day in the holy city (as the book of Revelation says), there will indeed be no temple “for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb” (Revelation 21:22).
Until that happy day we have to listen to Jesus who speaks in tune with all religious leaders worth listening to; don’t enter a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue unless you are prepared to love your enemies.
Anything you are involve in that teaches hate, killing or any form of violent is against the very extent of God and man, God is love, he take’s no happiness in the death of sinners, he make’s rain fall on both good and evil.
God is all powerful, he created the heavens and the earth, do you mean if he wish anyone dead, he cannot simply send fire as the case of Sodom in the bible, with the coming and sacrifice of Jesus a lot have changed, the love of God becomes more intensified.
Imagine a world who’s religion is kindness, I imagine a peaceful world.
