Fundamental forgiveness and liberalism is purely a Judeo-Christian root virtue in so much that in the west, we have bred generations upon generations of people who highly give to charity and are willing to be too compassionate and too soft as to allow an ideology that wants to destroy them.
Atheist Bertrand Russel once said that Mahatma Gandhi’s message may not have succeeded if he was not appealing to the roots/ hearts of a christian nation. If Gandhi was appealing to an Islamic nation, it would be a different story – that’s fact.
So here you see an Atheist commending a Polytheist but only thanks to the surplus atmosphere of a certain kind of theism.
Christianity is taking a new form in this new Era. We can no longer have faith without logical/ rational/ believable evidence like other religions. Let them define faith however they want. In Christianity, Faith without works (or evidence) is dead.
Let us show our faith not by stupid/ snowflake compassion and braindead forgiveness … but in this new Era, we need to show our faith by intellectual compassion (understanding the boundaries of our kindness) AND knowledgeable forgiveness (understanding that just because you forgive fire from burning your fingers, does not necessarily mean you’re stupid enough to put your fingers back in that fire).
