People are now moving back to their roots of fundamentalism. Rituals and doctrines are strictly adhered to in recent times (Thomas, 2010). In the article, the author talks about how Christianity has been spreading at an increasing rate and how the US can use religion as a medium to promote international peace and security and also make the lives of people of the world better. Christianity is known as the religion of peace with most of its rituals and teachings are based on the concept of peace, harmony and love among people. With the growing acceptance of religion and specifically Christianity, the author urges the United States to instill the beliefs of Christianity in their foreign affairs and use it to promote the message of peace and prosperity around the world. The United States has been at an advantage since the last two decades with the country politically involved with the whole world. There have been several problems too; where things have gone worse and have led to inevitable wars. A few notable examples could be Afghanistan and Iraq. There were political conflicts and a lack of understanding, settlement or ceasefire led to bloody wars that demolished the nation and put them back by hundreds of years. Nearly every attempt to resolve the issues by dialogue failed. The phenomena of war increased all over the world and United States, being the power it is, held responsibility of promoting the message of peace and prosperity, especially in international relations, which is something Christianity preaches. The author talks about how the United States should use the growing belief in religion all around the world to promote international peace and use it to settle their relations with other nations of the world. The message in Christianity is a strong one and if obeyed properly, can lead to peace in the world. Nations have become more and more religious. According to the author, during the last three years there has been a sudden resurgence of religion and faith. Nations who talk about religion tend to have a soft spot for all other nations that have strong inclination towards religion. There is a growing influence of religion on international politics. The United States should be using religion as a tool for promoting peace and molding their relations with other nations of the world. If two or more nations can agree upon the ideologies and beliefs of religion, their differences could be eliminated. This could happen if the motives and aspects of politics could be directed by what Christianity or any religion preaches. One example of how religion did this could be that of Islam. Several centuries ago, the Islamic leaders used the teachings of their God to solve political conflicts of the world. The word of their Islamic book, the Quran, was deemed as a guide to put an end to the conflicts and problems that arose among nations. Holy books were respected, believed and never objected to. The message in the books about national peace and prosperity was accepted by nations across the world and hence any conflicts that arose were solved according to the directives that were given in religion. Today, when religion is on the rise again, it is no surprise that the writer is urging the United States to move further towards religion and use it to promote the message of pe
A Globalized God Scott M. Thomas In the past, when the concept of religion was diminishing, many scholars remarked that a time will come when religion will be on the rise again and actions in the world will be directed based on religion.
