EVERY RELIGION NEEDS A NEW TESTAMENT IN IT’S “BIBLE.”
The Bible is a generic term for the holy book of any religion. In the Christian religion, the Old Testament is full of hatred, discrimination, carnage, incest, genocide, adultery, and corruption. Islam, is a counter to Judaism and subsequently Christianity. To embolden and empower converts, Islam preached violence against other religions in the same manner that Judaism employed violence against nonbelievers.
Judaism metamorphosed into Christianity, and the New Testament corrected the ills of the Old Testament. Islam has no New Testament and the extreme violence in the Quran is being interpreted literally by illiterate, semi-literate, and zealous Muslims. They use the Quran justifiably to inflict economic, mental, and physical violence on so called Infidels, Unbelievers, and minority sects of Islam.
It is not too late for a prominent Muslim Cleric to claim a divine vision and write a “New Quran” that will expunge the violent parts of the Quran. The same can be said for Judaism which uses the Torah or Old Testament as its “Bible.” Orthodox Jews who take the Torah literally are more confrontational and combative towards the Arabs. Judaism also needs a “New Torah.” This new Torah could be the New Testament modified to de-deify Jesus Christ, who is not God to the Jews.
Religions, by including the language of the New Testament in their holy books will usher in an era of tolerance without terrorism. Every Islamic terrorist attack presently can be justified by a passage in the Quran that the religious fanatics, or is it, lunatics, use as a justification for their murderous acts. The new language will remove the religious backing for their actions. The world will finally become a safer place.
