This is not against Islam and Christianity, the two resourceful and highly organized religions having greater influence over the humanity. They can be ten times more beneficial to the Humanity for which they must be ready to understand their own problems and crisis. They must adopt a different stand in the wake of rising youth and women anger and protest all over the world so that they can be more meaningful to the coming generation. Islam and Christianity, with unresolved Paradoxes and Identity Crises, are getting Irrelevant and Meaningless to the New Generation of Youth and Women. They have to be accountable and beneficial to the Humanity. Without creating a Just Social Order, ensuring Food, Dignity and Knowledge for All, they have no right to promise Paradise to the suffering millions, after death. They must be ready to Read the Writings on the Wall and Correct or Reform themselves and thereby prove their worth or usefulness to the Humanity. .

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY: HOW TO MAKE THEM BENEFICIAL,ACCOUNTABLE AND ACCEPTABLE TO THE NEW GENERATION OF YOUTH AND WOMEN IN THE CONTEXT OF THEIR FAILURE IN CREATING A JUST GLOBAL SOCIAL ORDER -- IMPACTS OF THE ARAB SPRING AND THE OCCUPYING PROTESTERS

  1. 1. MAKING ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY RELEVANT, ACCOUNTABLE AND BENEFICIAL TO THE HUMANITY DR. RAJU M. MATHEW
  2. 2. THE NEW GENERATION OF THE THINKING, AND PRO-ACTIVE YOUTH AND WOMEN <ul><li>This presentation is addressed to the New Generation of the Thinking, Questioning and Pro-active Muslim and Christian Youth and Women all over the world who want their religions socially and spiritually meaningful and relevant and above all beneficial to the entire humanity. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam and Christianity, while making Great Claims, must also be answerable to the Humanity and also to their own members, why they could not establish a Just Social Order and why do they support just 2% who own 80% of the wealth, leaving 80% of the mankind in poverty, ignorance and exploitation. </li></ul><ul><li>The Newly Emerging Thinking and Pro-active Youth and Women must take a more active role in the affairs of their religions rather than leaving them to the uneducated or conservative or narrow and criminal minded people, so as to make Islam and Christianity more relevant and beneficial to the Humanity. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  3. 3. WHY ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY? <ul><li>Islam and Christianity have emerged as the two biggest, fast growing and highly organized religions. They are competing each other to conquer the entire world; within each religion, rival factions or sects are fighting each other for dominance. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam and Christianity offer Paradise after death, though over 80% of the humanity, including 82% Muslims and 40% Christians, are cursed to live in a real hell-like conditions on the Earth before entering the Promised Paradise or the Cursed Hell after death. The value of wealth possessed by Islam and Christianity come in terms of several billions. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam and Christianity ,however, have been designed to safeguard or protect the interest of just 2% of the humanity who controls or owns over 80% of the wealth and resources of the humanity and enjoy all the pleasures of the Paradise on the Earth before death. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam and Christianity have acted as the catalyst of sustaining the misery of 80% of the humanity on the one hand and the power and wealth of just 2% who controls and enjoy over 80% of the wealth of the humanity on the edifice of ‘ Fate’ or ‘Pre determined Destiny’ or ‘Power and Wealth as the symbol of the Grace of God’ and ‘Absolute Obedience of the Authority’. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam and Christianity must be held accountable to the entire humanity for their false claims and their role in wars, brutalities and bloodsheds and above all perpetuating the misery and suffering of over 80% of the humanity for the sake of protecting the 2% who own and control over 80% of the global wealth and power. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  4. 4. WASTED TIME, RESOURCES AND OPPORTUNTIES <ul><ul><li>Both Islam and Christianity have wasted a lot of time, resources, expertise energy and organizational capabilities to solve the growing poverty, hunger, ignorance and denial of dignity affecting over 80% of the Humanity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But Christianity for the last two thousand years and Islam for one thousand and four hundred years have been employed their valuable time, energy, resources and opportunities for wars, conflicts and bloodsheds; debating on silly or irrelevant issues; constructing gigantic churches and mosques; and conducting tours and pilgrimages besides amassing a sizable share of the wealth and money of the corrupt or the criminals or the thieves or the looters or weapon traders promising them Paradise after death. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What Islam and Christianity did is less than 2% of what they could have done for the well being of the humanity. They have been committing the unpardonable sin or crime of omission and commission. As a result more than 80% the humanity still lives in hunger, poverty, ignorance and oppression . </li></ul></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  5. 5. FAITHS, HISTORY AND TRADITIONS OF ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY <ul><li>Islam and Christianity have long history and traditions, even going back to the ages of Moses or Abraham, starting from Genesis in the Bible. </li></ul><ul><li>Jesus Christ had propagated ‘The New Law or Testament , rejecting the Laws and practices of Moses or David or Abraham. What was rejected by Jesus Christ had cleverly been incorporated in the faiths and practices of Christianity that has become the real Irony or Tragedy of Christianity. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam or Mohammad, on the other hand, had glorified Moses and Abraham and adopted their laws and practices more rigorously than the Jews, demanding absolute and unquestionable obedience and practices from the believers or followers by a process of regimentation and military obedience. </li></ul><ul><li>The deep–rooted tribal ideology and belief of Abraham based on ‘ the Chosen people of the God ’ , ‘ the Right of the Children of Abraham for capturing ‘the Promised Land‘ with war and terror ’ that too with the Blessings of the God , and declaring the other tribes and peoples or their own disobedient men or women as the ‘ Enemies of the God’ or ‘Infidels’ and then ‘ eliminating or looting or raping them’ to please their God , had been reinforced by Moses. </li></ul><ul><li>They have become the very basis of both Islam and Christianity as is in the case of Judaism. They have been documented in the Old Testament, especially in Genesis, Deuteronomy and Joshua that had even inspired Adolf Hitler and Machiavelli for advocating or executing crimes and brutalities against the humanity. Hitler had praised Mohammad and attacked Jesus Christ. Max, Mao, Lenin and Stalin had heavily relied upon them to develop their theories or strategies in different contexts. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  6. 6. WHAT JESUS REJECTED BECOME THE CORNERSTONE OF CHRISTANITY <ul><li>By realizing the imperfections and inhumanness of the Laws of the Moses or the Old Testament, Jesus propounded The New Testament based not on revenge or cruelty, but on love, mercy and forgiveness which could not fitted with the Laws of Moses.Instead of proposing any reform, Jesus made a Revolution by projecting the poor, the oppressed and the women who had been treated as cursed one of Yahweh. Jesus rejected the concept of the Cruel, Angry and Jealous Yahweh and in stead projected the Loving and Forgiving ‘Heavenly Father’. </li></ul><ul><li>Jesus was even daring enough to teach his followers that he was not the son of David who called him “My Lord” , besides telling that the ‘Age of the Laws and Prophets’ had already been over and any body who claimed to be a Prophet must be a False Prophet to mislead the people. But, Christianity later incorporated what is written as the Laws and Prophets of Yahweh and made them as the “words of the God”, besides ignoring the cries and tears of the poor, the oppressed and the women and standing with the causes of those who have power and wealth. The deeds of mercy and charity rendered by the rich and powerful act as a protective shield from the anger and protest of the poor and oppressed. Here lies the failure of Christianity. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  7. 7. A SOCIO ECONOMIC SYSTEM AGAINST THE POOR, THE OPPRESSED AND THE WOMEN <ul><li>Islam is not only a Religion but a Socio-Economic and Political System, designed to give absolute power and authority to the rulers over the entire society. </li></ul><ul><li>From the fundamentalist point of view, in such a system, the role of the poor, the oppressed and the women is serving the rulers and the wealthy who represent the authority of the God on earth , with perfect obedience, making regular prayers and fasting and waiting for Paradise after death and if possible, making pilgrimage . </li></ul><ul><li>In such a rigid and closed system, the poor, the oppressed and the women have no right to protest or to bring reforms or revolutions that are treated as the greatest sin to invite anger and eternal punishment from the God. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the reason why; over 82% of the Muslims all over the world have to live in poverty, ignorance and oppression. In such a closed and rigid system, there is no room for the people with different faiths or religions. </li></ul><ul><li>Even the Islamic system of finance and banking and the great of act of charity or Shakat, could not improve conditions of the poor, the oppressed and the women, but to help sustain the power and authority of the rich and rulers over the rest of the society. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  8. 8. PARDOXES OF ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY <ul><li>It is a paradox that even though Jesus Christ had rejected the deadly ideologies of Moses and Abraham and propounded The New Testament based on Peace and Non-Violence, Christianity still upholds those ideologies and tells it followers as they are ‘the words of the God’ everyday. Though ‘Jehovah’ of Moses and ‘Allah’ of Mohammad are very much similar, they are no way identical or similar to ‘The Heavenly Father’ of Jesus Christ. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam has been built upon the edifice of the beliefs and ideologies of Moses and Abraham. Unlike Jesus, Mohammed had no problem in waging wars and killing the enemies or making use of the captured warriors and their armament for the next wars and also advocating Peace among his own men. </li></ul><ul><li>While Jews and Christians believe that the true heirs of Abraham and thereby ‘The Chosen People’ were the children of ‘Sara’ especially of Isaac , the Muslims advocate that the true heirs were the children of Hager, especially of Ismail. </li></ul><ul><li>This dispute is nothing but a family feud between two different tribal women of Abraham, that has grown to the extent of lasting enmity and war between different Semitic tribes. It has nothing to do with the Non-Semitic people, even if they become Muslims or Christians. </li></ul><ul><li>How can the people of India, China or Africa or Europe or America claim or believe that they are the children of Abraham, the father of Semitic Tribes, just by becoming Muslims or Christians? They cannot be ‘the chosen people of the God of Abraham on the basis of what has been written in ‘Genesis’ or ‘Deuteronomy’ of The Bible for all other tribes or nations were their enemies. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  9. 9. TRIBAL MINDSET OF ISLAM AND CHRISTANITY <ul><li>Abraham , the father of Isaac and Ismail who built up two powerful and quarrelling primitive Semitic Tribes , was made as the foundation of both Islam and Christianity. As a result, they cannot be free from the primitive tribal culture and mindset, such as loyalty towards the tribe, treating other tribes as enemies, dying and killing for the sake of the tribe as the greatest virtue and treating the God as the sole property of the Tribe, even making God as the supreme commander who fights against other tribes. </li></ul><ul><li>Even though Islam and Christianity spread across the world, crossing tribes, races and cultures, they retained the tribal mindset and culture of the primitive tribe of Abraham and also of the sub-tribes or sects of Isaac and Ismail. That is why; Muslims and Christians consider Abraham as their father. It is a historical and psychological necessity for Islam and Christianity to have lasting rivalries besides having several conflicting sects or cults who wage Wars and promote Terrorism. Some of the books in the Old Testament, especially Deuteronomy can be considered as the Handbook of War or Terror. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  10. 10. JUSTIFICATION FOR WAR AND TERROR <ul><li>As long as Islam and Christianity uphold the ideology of Moses and Abraham, they have justification for war and terror and their inevitability. That is the reason why; both Islam and Christianity, besides Judaism, treat their own common believers as the obedient and loyal people to kill or die for their religions and eliminating the people belong to the other tribes or faiths after branding them as the enemies of their God. </li></ul><ul><li>Since war and terror are inbuilt in Islam, Judaism and Christianity, it is natural that they fight each other besides infighting within each religion by the rival sects or cults such as Catholics Vs Protestants or Sunni Vs Shiite. Kings of Judea and Israel fought each other; in the western world, Christian countries fought each other; in the Arab World, Muslim Tribes or Countries fought each other. </li></ul><ul><li>Christianity had been involved in the Crusade and also in the two World Wars; Islam has been engaged either in war or terror for the last several years. Through Wars and Conquests, Egypt was made an Arab Muslim country. And Islam spread on several countries. Jews and Muslims have been fighting each other in the name of Palestine. War is inbuilt in their belief and practices. </li></ul><ul><li>There exist a nexus and unholy relationship between Islam, Judaism and Christianity with the Defense Industry and International Military Weapon Traders who promote Islamic or Jewish or Christian fundamentalism, terrorism and counter-terrorism. They are the major source of funding of these religions. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  11. 11. CAPITALISM ,AUTOCRACY, COMMUNISM AND CORPORARTISM <ul><li>Capitalism, Autocracy, Fascism, Communism and Corporatism are the bye-products of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. They have been built upon the ideology of ‘chosen people’, ‘promised land’ and ‘infidels and enemies of the God’. </li></ul><ul><li>Power and wealth have always been the privilege of the ‘chosen few’. The chosen few represent the authority and the grace of the God and therefore the people with wealth and authority must be obeyed or respected by the rest of the humanity. </li></ul><ul><li>Capitalism, Autocracy, Fascism, Communism and Corporatism create a World Order in which just 2% can have absolute ownership of over 80% of the wealth of the humanity and over 80% of the mankind live in hunger, ignorance and oppression. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam, Judaism and Christianity, in spite of their’ shakat’, charity and mercy deeds, in effect have reinforced the existence and sustainability of such an unjust and inhuman World Social order. That is why: 82% of the Muslims and 41% of the Christians still live without Food, Dignity and Knowledge. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  12. 12. MAKING ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY BENEFICIAL TO THE HUMANITY <ul><li>The greatest challenge of the twenty first century is ensuring Food, Dignity and Knowledge for over 80% of the humanity and reducing the widening gap between 2% and 80% of the mankind. This problem can be addressed only by making humanity, especially Islam and Christianity, free from the narrow tribal mindset and to develop a universal approach to the entire mankind irrespective of any race, tribe or religion or nationality and relieving God from the monopoly of any religion. </li></ul><ul><li>Unless Islam and Christianity are ready to change, within ten years over 90% of the mankind will be left without Food, Dignity and Knowledge and they will resort to revenge and violence to destroy the unjust and criminal Social Order reinforced by Islam, Christianity, Capitalism, Communism, Corporatism. The poor and the oppressed cannot be pacified with the ‘Fear of God’ and ‘The Promised Paradise’ advocated by Islam and Christianity, for they arte getting aware of the crimes, injustices and brutalities committed against them. If Islam and Christianity are beneficial only for just 2%, the rest of the humanity has the right to punish them also. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  13. 13. THE NEW GENERATION OF MUSLIM AND CHRISTIAN YOUTH AND WOMEN <ul><li>This presentation is started with a set of questions and paradoxes. The New Generation of Muslim and Christian Youth and Women, encountered with Globalization, Information Technology, Global Economic Crisis, the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movements have the answers with them. They have to give a global and universal values and outlook to Islam and Christianity which must be redesigned to solve the basic human problem and ensure lasting Peace and Prosperity. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a social, spiritual and historical necessity for Islam and Christianity to redefine their faith and practices for establishing a Just and New Global Social Order, ensuring ‘Food, Dignity and Knowledge for All’; empowering all men on the earth and thereby bringing lasting Peace and Prosperity for the entire mankind. Other wise, the relevance and the very existence of Islam and Christianity will be questioned by the New Generation of the Thinking and Pro-active Muslim and Christian Youth and Women all over the world. We have to make use of the vast untapped potentialities and resources of Islam and Christianity for the well being of the Humanity, in stead of wasting for silly and narrow issues that do not contribute any benefit to the humanity other than the vested few. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  14. 14. THE LIVING HUMAN BEINGS <ul><li>Islam and Christianity must give importance to basic problems of the Living Human beings rather than the ideology and practices of some primitive tribes lived, fought and shed a lot of blood centuries ago. They must realize that they can no longer fool the New Generation of Youth and Women with a set of ‘Fears’, as they have become ‘Fearless’, as has been happening in the case of the Arab Spring or Occupy Movement. </li></ul><ul><li>Without ensuring ‘ Food, Dignity and Knowledge for All ’, what is the meaning of promising ‘ Paradise ’ with all the pleasures of life after death to the suffering 80% and shielding the 2% to enjoy all the pleasures of the Paradise before death . </li></ul><ul><li>War and Terror besides rivalries and clashes between religions and within each religion and above all religious fundamentalism and terrorism are the result of the conspiracy of the 2% against the rest of the humanity and thereby keeping them in hunger, ignorance and oppression for ever. </li></ul><ul><li>Now the New Generation of the Thinking, Awakened and Pro-active Youth and Women are getting ready to establish the New Global Social Order after destroying the Unjust and Cruel Social Order. Every thing is written clearly on the Wall. The time is too short. This is the real threat faced by Islam and Christianity for the first time in the entire history. </li></ul>02/12/12 Making Islam and Christianity Relevant, Meaningful and Accountable. By Dr. Raju M. Mathew
