“I dont’ want you to advocate to anything. I want you to perform a miracle as great as the resurrection of that boy. Then you’ll tell the people that peace is the only solution, and they’ll listen to you. The high priest will lose completely whatever power he posseses.”
This is from Paulo Coelho “The Fifth Mountain”. It is a great book which give us an insight of the life of Prophet Elijah and how people used to think at the point of time (870 B.C.).
According to the tag I got from Kinzi, I have to copy and paste from page 123 of the book I have next to me. Thank you Kinzi for the tag.
Reading those lines, one has to wonder how much things have changed since that time. We still have many people who believes in miracles. We still have religious people with high authority, and we still fight and kill each other in the name of God.
Prophet Elijah may have won the battle for his God against the Phoenicians’ Gods. Now that people around the world follow one and one God, they have managed to fight now not for the name of this God, but to impose their own ways of worshipping him.
Will we ever realize that peace is our only solution?
I would like to know what Saadna, RedRose, and Mohammad read. Grab the nearest book you are reading, go to page 123, go down 5 lines and post the next three sentences. State the name of the book, the author, and tag three more people.
Mohammad (it is you, my dedicated blog reader :)) you don’t have a blog yet? You can post the lines under the comments section of this post. Thank you.
