    In what the world are we living in

    As a human being who is alert and oriented we should be capable of identifying the deferences between black and white. In contrary though some of as we don't see the differences, Or we ignore the truth and we pick anything that benefit us. Ethics and morality is out of the question as long as we get what we want. Like Bedouin smugglers who kill people to* steal their organs from African refugees in Sinai desert or drug cartels* who live by killing and destroying peoples life. But The worst from all of I mentioned above is when a person kills people who knew, meet or seen before in the name of God which never meet or seen in a real life except heard of god name or read in a book like a fairytale story. Even in the bible or Quran says " if you don't love the person you know you can't love a god you don't know.

    Re: In what the world are we living in

    I'm not sure your passage is salvageable in English.
    Can you cite the verses in the Bible and Quran that give your last line?

    Re: In what the world are we living in

    Also read Matthew 25:34-45. I will only quote verse 40: 'The King will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."'
    So loving God automatically means loving others. If you don't love others, it is as if you don't love God.
    For the situation within a family, I will give you Ephesians 5:25: 'Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her'

    Re: In what the world are we living in

    None of those verses mean what you claim they do.
    A simple logical error you've made is to assume that what the King said also means "If you did not do this for one of the least, you have not done it for me."
    However, specifically it says nothing about loving a God you know compared to a God you don't know. Christians believe they can know God through Jesus, whereas (correct me if I'm wrong), Muslims believe that God cannot be known. So, your initial quote might be in the Quran.

    Perhaps:

    As human beings who are alert and oriented, we should be able to tell the difference between black and white.

    Say:

    On the contrary, some of us don't see the difference.

    (The Bible quote you have been discussing is in the Greek scriptures.)
