One just needs one fanatic to upset the world

Through email I received an interesting brief note called: “the German’s view on Islam”. It is a brief explaining that simply states that the fact that 99.99% of all moslims are pacific, hardworking, caring people is beside the point. So were most Germans just before Hitler invaded the world, or the Japanees prior to engangement into WWII, and so many other situations where the sheep had nothing to do with the few wolfs among them. It is not about Islam but about fanatism. It is not about the peaceful mayority but the mayority that let’s fanatism florish beyond control.

The article in fact states that fanatism should be fanatically erradicated by the crowd. But what is fanatism? And what is the democratic right to have a different opinion and shout for it? Is the difference that when you are fanatic you’d be willing to kill for it? And when you have a different opinion you keep your counterparts alive?

In the current society we see two types of fanatics:

1. The ones who advocate the will of God
If God represents our moral inner concience that is challenged by a wise terrestrial, human institution, it would represent a valuable counterpart to our material search. But if God represents a higher power only available to a happy few who use His name to take decisions over everyone, then we start questioning the power they claim. Those who “believe” will become submissive and fearful, those who donot would become the enemy. Now, what if God does not exist, as we were thought already by Confusius? Those who claim to speak His word would become powerless, those who are fearfull would be encouraged and those who are submissive would be asked to stand on their own leggs. Those who donot believe would not be an enemy anymore. What if God is inside all of us, being all the energy that surrounds us, fullfils us and connects us, the sum of us all?

2. The ones that advocate the power of Money
Now if in the above you change the word God for Money, do we not say exactly the same thing? Money for sure does not exist. It is an instrument invented by humans, empowered and unjustly worshiped by humans. But it only represents the energy that surrounds us, that we are composed of and that links us.

It takes one fanatic to upset the world but what if the crowd stops to worship God and Money and starts to care for itself (God and Money is IN us)? No fanatic would ever stand a chance.

    Dear JP, An interesting article but unfortunately based on both a shallow knowledge of the koran and the God of the Bible. Firstly the general assumption that Allah and the God spoken of throughout the Bible are the same is false. The Judeo-Christian God is a personal caring God whose main desire is to have a personal relationship with every man and woman, the ultimate proof of this is in what Jesus His Son did on the cross to save us. Allah is an impersonal cruel god, with no provision for forgiveness or dealing with human sin and Islam has historically been spread at the point of the sword. Some might point to the crusades, or the work of the inquisition comparitively, yet these are Biblically untenable and were the work of a degenerate and corrupt church in seperation from Christ. There are 109 suras in the koran which advocate violence and murder. But there are of course reasonable muslims who love God, but these are generally those who say the koran can’t be followed literally. The distinction between Islam and true christianity is that those who follow the koran are v.often indoctrinated by hate, whereas those who FOLLOW the Bible tend to be reminded of their own sins and Christ’s forgiveness of them which usually fills people with love for others, as they are constantly reminded that their salvation came from God’s grace towards them.
    God clearly wants to live inside every one of us in the form of His Holy Spirit, but for that to happen we need to be born again (John 3:3) by surrendering our lives to Him. We might pray Our Father, but must ask ourselves are we His children?
