The following article about the Dalai Lama explains that his purpose in spending so much time in meditation is to promote compassion as the key to making planet earth a better place. This would mean working together with leaders of all religions in a cooperative effort.
This is very interesting in light of the fact that Pastor Rick Warren is holding a conference at Saddleback August 16, 2008 titled “Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion.”
Further, in an article we posted July 21 titled “McCain, Obama to Appear Together at California Megachurch”, the following statement was made: “In conjunction with the Civil Forum event, Warren will convene an interfaith meeting with about 30 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders to discuss joint projects that can benefit all Americans.” Notice the interesting common denominator with the two plans – the Dalai Lama’s plan and Rick Warren’s plan – working together with all religions to benefit all.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with having compassion for others – however, uniting together with other religions for a common cause to make the world a better place, may well end up being a slippery slope that will someday lead to the union of the religions of the world for the cause of peace that will eventually bring about sudden destruction by the Prince of Peace (Jesus).
