Religious wars are not caused by the fact that there is more than one religion, but by the spirit of intolerance... the spread of which can only be regarded as the total eclipse of human reason. In the long term we can hope that religion will change the nature of man and reduce conflict, but history is not encouraging in this respect. The bloodiest wars in history have been religious wars is that true? Atheists and secular humanists consistently make the claim that religion is the no one cause of violence and war throughout the history of mankind it is simply incorrect to assert that religion has been the primary cause of war.
The historical evidence is quite clear: Religion is not the number one cause of war.
If religion can’t be blamed for most wars and violence, then what is the primary cause? The same thing that triggers all crime, cruelty, loss of life, and other such things. Jesus provides the answer very clearly. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornication's, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man (Mark 7:21–23). On Christianity, we will never see peace in this current age. There is never a day without some conflict somewhere in the world, the only cure for war is the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ! When Christ returns as He has promised, He will close this current age and establish eternal peace. AMEN.
