    No, it's people themself, defending on beliefs! They should keep it to themselfs not discuss it and tell the whole world. It will create more and more opinions in which destroys us making us use force against each other. This is all hatred between us. If i were them keep it to yourself!!!

      Yeah i do agree with you but the matter of keeping at a private level seems to be against the spirit of religious teaching. One should propogate with peaceful methods and there should not be any compulsion nor winning loosing.

      It's natural for people to want to help, but as long as self-concern (ego) is involved, their efforts create more suffering.

      Keeping love to yourself is part of the problem! The problem is ego (separation).

    In my opinion, some people do use their religion as an excuse to do some very nasty things. I'm not limiting that to only one or two religions because there are people in all religions who will do it. The extremists in each religion give a bad name to the majority who use their religion to do good. Then there are the non-religious (not all of them, but some) who will say religion is the base problem for all of the bad things even when religion has nothing to do with the problem because they need someone and something to blame so they use the religion they don't like. So my answer is sometimes religion is responsible for some of the crises and sometimes it's not.

    No. Ego is always the source of the troubles we suffer, including the perversions we find in religion, science, government, etc.

    Religion is only a symptom.

    Love is the answer, but True Love has no self-concern. Most people treat "lust" as "love," and they're not the same thing.

    God is love. The suffering we're experiencing is as a result of self-concern (ego). The world will heal when we all give up our "selves" as Christ described -- when the first (egoist) shall be last, and the last (humble) shall be first.

    These are also the lessons of authentic Kabbalah, like that found in Bnei Baruch.
