Look, I understand the rush to dismantle Scripture, to sanitise and make contemporary the words written so many hundreds of years ago, words that seem to be of no use to anyone except the religious criminals who terrorise cultures with their literal cacophony and brutal physical punishments.
However impossible the task may seem though, there will be no meaningful advance through the present vicious cultural logjams that fails to bring the prophetic expectations of the Abrahamic vehicles together with the more ancient voices of the Buddha and Krishna.
When Muhammad (pbuh) spoke to his fallen enemies on the battlefield clearly because he was actually seeing that they were in their promised Hell, when Jesus wept tears of blood, when Jonah ran from his given mission, when Moses asked for Aaron’s help from the God that was sending him into harms way, when the Buddha faced his demons and stated that the Earth would bear witness to who He was, when Arjuna was brought through his fears by Krishna in the epic of The Bhagavad Gita …. well, these messages do not need to be utterly dismantled to be replaced by an insisted Oneness that cannot answer to their original veracity except by way of inventing a phoney connection with Mystery even more literally arcane than that which is apparently sought to be justly got rid of.
The ferocious analysis of the intellect softens when a sickness diagnosis is truly accepted. The logical due diligence of the take over plan for the seeming chaos of the global religious business must eventually give way to love, if it is to prevent turning into a more hopeless monster than that which it covertly seeks to asset strip.
