Stumbling Blocks on the Path to Peace...

Stumbling Blocks to peace are not only Religious but by their very nature Political and if a Religious person of Organized denomination is also into Politics then you a recipe for a stumbling block and oppression. Allow me to give a few examples and I welcome others to offer more examples can you think of any? Buddhism can be a stumbling block because the path to peace is not real, you must not face negativity but return to the nothing that you are. Of course the opposite for a wise Buddha is to find a field of practice that pays well and everything positive is a reward of good and a sign of a peaceful coexistence. Money we can not live with out money but money really has no value, who determines the value of money? Money is only a tool for exchange, you can control the exchange rate by not purchasing an item that will cost you too much money. Ignorance, like the rude Islamic or Muslim people who take offense to people exposing the truth about their religion and infect the conversation with personal or derogatory attacks. If they have a leg to stand on it would appear to be hollow made of wood... Christianity, the duality of all religions is to promote both good and bad, and to pick one side over the other. It is written that the Spirit of Christ will return and use both the good and the bad to the Glory of GOD... They refuse to see and accept they know not the Christ that they seek and the Christ does not know them. The true light of the World would be offended by most if not all Christians. Judaism the root or greatest stumbling block of all three is the false foundation upon which this religion is built. So what does the Judiciary have to do with being a stumbling block? It is about conflicts of interest. What is a conflict of interest? I'm heading out to skate...

There are sveral stumbling blocks on the path to peace. A). Lack of questioning spirit : When people accept everything without questioning, they are not bound to be peaceful. A questioning spirit is very important. If you obey others without question- well, then we might even obey a man like Hitler and harm millions of people. B). Lack of joy : People say we should love others, but nobody stops to think that without being joyful, it is not possible to love others. It is not in the department of a miserable person to love anybody. So, joy first. With joy, there will be love. With love, there will be peace. C). Religion : Religion has always been a block to peace. Religion gives set ideas and thus, destorys the joy of man. When once the joy of man is destroyed, then he cannot love. And without love, there can be no peace.
