Russia - Ukrain Crisis

Russia-Ukraine Crisis/Oversea Situation

I feel like this is not a crisis. This is cat fight over who gets what they want. Why is that Ukraine cannot be independent? Why is that Ukraine cannot be supported by US/European support? Russia why is that you do not want Ukraine part of Nato? Why can't Russia restore soviet territory? What harm What harm is it for these things to happen for Russia? Only reason I would see if the motive are wrong. China testing missle etc. What is that your going to get out of this by all this demanding back forth. Nothing, but here is the thing. Every leader that was voted into office overseas. Should think about the people and what they need. Some of these countries people are suffering. Why put these innocent children and adults through because everybody want what they want. If something a country reads because it's affecting their economy. Why withhold it from them. In my book the Russia-Ukraine and another countries people are important. Because God create them for a purpose in life but not to destroy one another out of hatred. Why keep testing this missiles? I have been on this earth 47 years. I've watch wars overseas destroy innocent children and people lives. It's bad enough when you have a natural disaster like hurricane etc. that destroy everything. But its a deeper hurt when your own government cause destruction. I beg for peace in America and other countries. God want us to love each other. I am reminded that Jews and Sameritan didn't like each other. Every religion I know talks about love and loving your enemies. It's in Islamic studies etc. I don't know what Russia or Ukraine, Taiwan or China religion. BUt I repent myself every religion teaches on loving your enemies or praying for them. Here is three example from different religions (love your enemies)

Jehovah witness: John 15:11 This is my commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you. No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his life in behalf of his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. We may not have to die for someone, but there are other ways to practice sacrificial love! Listening, helping, encouraging, giving. Think of someone in particular who needs this kind of love today. Give all the love you can and then try to give try to give a little more.

Islamic community:
A prayer; Loving your enemies (praying for them)

Al-Falaq or The Dawn

In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most merciful
1. Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn
2. From the mischief of created things:
3. From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads
4. From the mischief of those who blow on knots
5. and from the mischief of the envious ahead he practices envy

Christian community

Love (Luke 10:25-37; 1 John 4:7-12, 19-21)
The love God wants us to show to each other is an attitude, not an emotion. You don't have to like someone in order to show love to him or her or them. In fact, Jesus tells us that we should try to show love for our enemies! He doesn't expect us to like them (or else they wouldn't be our enemies!), but he wants us to love them! ([oee?] Matthew 5:43-47.)
The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) is about a man who was walking to show love to someone who needed help, even though that man would probably not have done the same for him. The Good Samaritan was even willing to take a risk to do so. He was willing to risk that his friends would call him a fool. He was willing to risk that his enemies would misunderstand him. He was willing to risk his time and his money. This is love. not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since GOd so loved us, we also ought to love one another (1 John 4:10-11) If anyone says, "I love God." yet hates his brother or sister, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother or sister, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen (1 John 4:20).

You see these are three different religion Love was utilize in differents ways. such as teaching and prayer. Neven want to one time it spoke on going to war, firing missile or mistreating your enemies.
I am calling for Peace all over United States, continents and nations based on I Corinthians 13:4-13
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reason like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. and now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Speaking to United States, continents and nations:
Paul says that love "is patient". Sometimes we're irritated or angered by others and we don't know why. Not all irritability stems from sinful or selfish motives, although the irritable treatment of others surely is wrong. Much irritability comes from a love of perfection, a deep desire that programs, meetings and structures be run perfectly. A desire to run things perfectly can erupt into anger at events or people who get in the way or ruin that desire. Those who are easily irritated need to remember that that perfection exists only in our higher power. We need to love our higher power and our sisters, brothers and neighbors, not the vision we have for perfection here one earth.
Our society confuses love and lust. Unlike lust, Higher Power kind of love is directed outward toward others, not inward toward ourselves. It is utterly unselfish. This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is possible to practice this love only if higher power helps us set aside our own desires and instincts, so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return. Thus the more we become like higher power, the more love we will show to others.
Paul wrote that love endures forever. In morally corrupt [cornith?], love has become a mixed up term with little meaning. Today people are still confused about love. Love is the greatest of all human qualities and is an attribute of God himself (1 John 4:8) Love involves unselfish service to others. Faith is the foundation and content of GOd's message. Hope is the attitude and focus, love is action. When faith and hope are in line, you are free to love completely because you understand how God loves. Does your faith in what you believe in fully express itself in loving others? If not, why not?

Thank you for the opportunity to transcribe your post. You speak to many fundamental truths about humanity in your writing. I especially appreciated the way you drew parallels across many religions––it really shows how we are one humanity, and there is no reason for us to wage war against one another. I pray that the world will hear and listen to your words.
