The Humanitarian Coalition for Peace and Freedom, in concert with The Coalition of Jews, Christians and Muslims for Peace and Freedom and The All Faiths Coalition for Peace and Freedom, welcomes you to join us.

The message we promote is in the best interest of humanity as a whole body, regardless of religious beliefs, because some people are in conflict and vehemently disagree about religious beliefs, even though religions should promote unity, harmony and peace.

Our main mission is to help foster understanding, mutual respect and peace between the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), to remind them of divine intent and bring them together as the family they are destined to become, and thereby bring them into the greater world family of religions.

This, we have learned, will help in the fulfillment of the actual, real prophecies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and of all other divinely inspired religions of the world that also foretell a future of peace following this terrible tribulation.

As you will see below, we have it on good authority that the responsibility for saving the world is ours, as fellow human beings, and that we will do so by obeying God and abiding by the Universal Divine Imperative which is common to all genuine and divinely inspired religions, and which has been updated to this modern statement: Treat all others as you would want to be treated if you were them.

We understand that all great spiritual teachers taught it, in one way or another. Thus Jews are supposed to be taught that we should not do to others what is hurtful to our self. Christians are supposed to be taught to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And Muslims are supposed to be taught that no one is a true believer in Allah until he loves for all others what he loves for himself.

We understand that, similarly, Buddhists are taught that we should treat others as we treat our self. Hindus are taught that we should not do unto others anything that, which if it were done to us, would cause us pain. The Taoists are taught that we should regard our neighbor's gain as our own gain, and our neighbor's loss as our own loss. That's because the founders of all true religions have said that the search for the Divine and Holy should be not in the world, but within, and when found it brings forth love that is universal and knows no bounds.

These teachings and spiritual values are at the very core of all genuine religions, and they are all about unconditional love, peace, freedom, honesty, humility, tolerance, forgiveness, compassion, charity, and pacifism.

Unfortunately, some of the worst atrocities in the world are being committed by people who ignore those values and yet claim they are religious. That is why a reminder is needed.

We beseech all Jews to understand that Solomon of ancient Israel, renowned for his great wisdom, said that pride goes before destruction and an arrogant spirit before a fall, and it is better to be of a humble spirit than to join the proud and militant in their aggressive and offensive pursuit of the "spoils" of war.

We beseech all Christians to understand that Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritually anointed son of man and sacrificial lamb of God, agreed with that, and he added that we should love even our enemy. He advised against retaliation, and against living by the sword. He declared that Man cannot serve both God and Mammon (which is defined as worldly wealth, but also includes worldly power abused and imposed unfairly). And, Jesus even declared that the meek are blessed and shall inherit the earth. Then, to top it off, he willingly martyred himself and sacrificed his life to set a good example and culminate his teachings regarding peace, love, tolerance, forgiveness, and pacifism. He was a true martyr.

We beseech all Muslims to understand that Islam's founder, Muhammad, knew and respected the teachings of Jesus, and he stated that killing is always evil, and that indiscriminate killing is especially evil. Moreover, like Jesus, he advised against retaliation and against force or coercion in religious matters, and he commanded Muslims to "be very courteous to Jews and Christians because we all believe in the same God." (Qur'an 29:46)

Of course, we also understand that proud and militant Jews, Christians and Muslims feel righteously justified in their actions, and in certain cases they have good reasons for that. In fact, many of them do have legitimate grievances. The trouble is, in far too many cases, they are misled by hypocrites who ignore many core scriptural facts and universal truths, and are totally ignorant of divine will and intent. They feign religiosity, preach the doctrines of men, and pray for the ears of men, but betray God and humanity as a whole body.

We understand these things because we have learned the truth from a message reflecting the Spirit of truth, delivered by the modern son of man, who is called by many different names and titles by different religions (even though he claims no title but son of man, fellow servant and messenger of God).

He does not seek power for himself. Rather, his work empowers us all, and it liberates us from all those who want to rule over us in the name of religion and/or patriotism. He shows us how to establish government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.
