Tenrikyo /A Religion of Arrogance or Tolerance

It is interesting that the Muslim religion is said to be the fastest growing religion in the world. It is also interesting that a research done by the Igarape Institute has found that Muslims inhabit the cities that are more prone to collapse. The following is the initial paragraph of the article:

According to Robert Muggah, global security expert and research director at the think tank Igarapé Institute, there are a total of 66 cities dealing with such rapid urbanization, high unemployment, and risk of natural disaster and violence that they’re highly vulnerable to physical or economic collapse.

Why does a religion expand in spite of the suffering and violence that continue upon its people? I believe it is arrogance that fuels the fire to the people that suffer. The mind of arrogance leads to hate and enmity, which like an infection is easily transmitted from person to person. Throughout history, false prophets and clergy have blamed others for their sufferings. They have used the emotion of hate and fear in harvesting new members. They use God, and often call out his name before inflicting pain and death on their victims. But in spite of their devotion, their people continue to be plagued by poverty and suffering. The fervor of hate also clouds their minds as they suffer. The clergy tells them to be patient as paradise waits for them in heaven.
