Quote of the Day: John 3:16


It’s Good Friday. This is a well known verse. It sums up the point of the day, and it sums up the whole point of Christianity.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Happy Easter.

David has studied history and political science at Melbourne University. His thesis was written on how the utilisation of Missile Defence can help to achieve nuclear disarmament. His interest in history was piqued by playing a flight simulator computer game about the Battle of Britain, and he hopes to one day siphon the earnings from his political writings into funding the greatest prog-rock concept album the world has ever seen.

    Looking at this posting and Ryan’s most recent (about the pernicious impact of Judaism and Islam on the once-Christian west) you would get the impression that there is a chasm separating the three Abrahamic religions. In my mind, there isn’t – it is the same vengeance-ridden paranoid God of the Desert underpinning all three – sure, the NT and Jesus greatly qualify the harshness of the OT/Torah, but the underlying supernatural entity remains the same one. It is “Allah” too.
    Hence, why are the societies dominated by the various hybrids so different? Clearly it’s down to the people upon whom each belief system has fallen. I know there is a contrary chicken/egg argument, but in my opinion, Christianity is as it is because of the Romans and ongoing European influence. Islam was stuck in the lands surrounding the Mediterranean – populated not with the peoples of antiquity, but the descendants of the savages who wrecked it.
    Judaism continued in Europe and Russia – it is not based on any lost tribes, it is largely European.
    So, in my mind, the west has prospered because of who we are – despite our links to the God of the Desert, not because of It.
