WEDNESDAY WAYSDOM: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity



After the death of Osama Bin Ladin this week, it's time to examine the roots of all this divisiveness.  Here are the top 3 reasons for all of this madness:

1. Islam, Judaism, and Christianity follow the spiritual teachings of three different prophets.

2. Islam, Judaism, and Christianity communities worship on three different days.

3. Islam, Judaism, and Christianity have multiple ways on dealing with women (a loaded topic for another day), depending on the sect.

All things being equal, if you follow three different people, you will travel three different paths.  In the 21st century, we must find our similarities and overcome our differences.  Oppression is a man-made construct.  Freedom is our birthright, which transcends all religions.

In what Wednesday Waysdom do you welcome diversity into your life?
