What is the difference between a terrorist and a religious person? There may be a fine line. Some people believe that they are serving God by propagating their religion, and suppressing others that have different view. In many parts of the world, religious people are killing others in the name of God. They truly believe that they are representing God by their actions. They believe that they are Good, and will be rewarded by a loving God. In reality, they are good people that are on the wrong path.
In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is said that there is no one who is essentially evil. Everyone is a child of God. It is only because these dusts of evil have permeated their minds. These dust are greed, arrogance, and self-love. It is only when we remove these evils from our minds that we can we open a path to a joyous future.
In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is stated that God will save everyone, even the arrogant religious fanatic who terrorize the world today. When they realize that their actions and thoughts create their own sufferings, they will begin to eliminate evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from their minds.
Everyone is a child of God. God does not want his children to suffer. We must not hate those who try to hurt us; we should pray for them. We must pray that they realize that they are causing their own sufferings. We must pray that they eliminate greed, arrogance, and self love from their minds. When this happen, the world will be joyous, with everyone helping each other.
