Most of the people in this world were born into one or another of the various religions in practice today, with over three quarters of them affiliated with one of the five major systems of faith. Unfortunately, says author Edward A. Walsh, there is not now, nor has there ever been, an effort, or even an inclination, to merge the basic principles of thier creeds. In fact, Walsh points out, the bloodiest confrontations among people have been motivated by religious rigidity. Mankind, Walsh warns, is in danger of destroying itself on the altar of a false interpretation of God's will, as though He mandated lethal hostility among religions. As an uncontrolled population growth (an obsession with the more prolific of religions) shrinks our world into an even more dangerous convergence of impervious dogma, what is there on the planet to prevent nuclear Armagedon in an effort to establish a "one and only" conception of God? Walsh insists that if religions are to persist on earth without an internecine showdown, they had better affiliate into a confederation of churches with the same motives and objectives, recognizing MAN as the quitessential being of all creation.
