Some, maybe many, might say it is premature to predict the imminent demise of all life on our planet. However, I believe them to be like ostriches with their heads buried in the sand. Never before has mankind had the tools for total self-destruction. In the event of nuclear war, it is likely that no area of the earth would be spared. And why should we be concerned (scared out of our wits)? Because of extreme ideological and/or religious differences that exist among nuclear-weapon-equipped nations. Foolishly, over the years, our leaders have “kicked the can of reconciliation down the road”, dreadfully close to the point of no return. And why do all of those ideological/religious differences exist? Simply, because no one of authority, to my knowledge, has taken “the bull by the horns” and demanded the recognition of “a least common denominator” of our Spirituality which all can accept. Of course, in doing so, millions of preachers, prelates, and princes would ‘be out of a job’; preaching religion is the major source of income for millions. Each is hammering his/her theme harder and harder attempting to garner a larger audience and, of course, at the same time a fuller collection basket. That singular selfishness is the greatest obstruction to basic reconciliation with each other and with our Creator. Religion and ideology (a form of religion), are the obstructionists to peace. We wouldn’t have needed nuclear weapons in the first instance were it not for irrational ideologies, one of which, Fascism, was supported by the Church in hopes of maintaining and even gaining more influence. As a global community, we must rapidly come to understand that each of us is imprinted with the image of the identically same Creator (call that Creator what you may). Likely, divisiveness has progressed to the point of no return. I have yet to hear a preacher of any denomination of any religion preach a sermon exclusively about the singular message Jesus gave us, LOVE; love of God and love of neighbor. Love is the only healer, but, sadly, it will never be preached because there’s no money to be made preaching love. Only hellfire and damnation get peoples attention and their pocketbooks. I think my warning is definitely not premature. What do you think? You probably have heard the expression “dead right”. You may have the green light while driving though an intersection, but if you don’t take the precaution of looking for cross traffic, you may end up “dead and right”. Each preacher is certain of its valid message even though that message is at 90 degree angle to all others. The problem lies in the fact that the money lies in hammering the incidentals rather than the fundamentals (love). If we in the Western World cant reconcile Christianity, why would we expect to reconcile the entire world? I have repeatedly called for, and will continue to call for the recognition of the World Wide Communion Of Spirituality. It is our only path to survival.
