Revenge is NEVER the solution

Postby Angelight » Fri Sep 10, 2010 7:57 pm

The news that American pastor Terry Jones is going to burn the korans tomorrow on Sep 11 just give me the shivers. Revenge - an eye for an eye - is never the solution to a problem. On the contrary, it will only make matters worse. It will only create a vicious cycle that may cause more bloodshed and hatred.

This set me thinking that sometimes in life, we also tend to strike out at those who have hurt us. Revenge may be sweet (to some people), but it will definitely bring about adverse consequences that may come back to haunt us later in life.

I really pray that this Terry Jones will not carry out his acts cos more innocent lives gonna be at stake. :pray:

If he is a pastor ...what kind of example he is setting for his church???

The Koran is a Holy book to many ...let respect each others faith....

Apparently, he gave conflicting comments on whether he would proceed as planned.

Let's hope sanity prevails at the end of the day. :pray:

This guy is just trying to get Obama to speak to him. :P

in my opinion... it is nothing more than for personalfame and glory
... nothing to do with religion. PERIOD

I wonder what kind of testimony is he trying to show...

Agree that revenge is never the solution whether it's regarding religious matters or in our personal lives. He who conquers anger conquers the greatest enemy. Seems a little in conflict to human nature, but it truly is the best way. Still learning..... ...but where there's a will, there's a way.. :celebrate:

If Al Qaeda bombed the WTC, that doesn't mean that evetry Muslim is bad. Burning the Koran is a direct insult to EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM out there.

How would he feel if someone started burning the Bible???? :x :x
