A sad rant giving a one-sided view of the situation. Jews, Christians, and Muslims share the same God as I understand things. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Old Testament documents God calling Jews "The Chosen People, and leading them out of Egypt and into "The Land of Israel." Subsequently, the narrative changes and three paths emerge. The Jews still await the coming of the Messiah. The Christians accept Jesus Christ as the promised Messiah. I "think," as opposed to personally knowing, the Muslims consider Jesus Christ a Prophet. No where have I heard any claim that our God has removed the Jews from being "Chosen," nor has He taken Israel away from the Jews as their homeland. (This may be simplistic theology and/or betray my ignorance, but it is my understanding.) With the coming Jesus Christ, as set down in John 3:16, the opportunity for Eternal Life was vouched safe to all who believed in Jesus Christ as the Son of God; no ifs, ands, or buts! The challenge, as I see it, is one from our God to come together and live in peace with one another throughout the world. This should begin in this place that holds many sites that are sacred to all of us along side others that are unique for each of our heritages. I pray that Almighty God will open all of our eyes and lead us into His Peace which surpasses all understanding. Amen.
