Abstract

MASANGO, Maake J.. Religion, violence and abuse. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2018, vol.74, n.3, pp.1-6. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v74i3.5144.

Abrahamic faith-based religions are always regarded as peaceful. The question to ask is as follows: how do its followers use violent text in order to justify their action? This article analyses how extremists within these faiths abuse the text and use violence as a means of forcing non-believers into their faith. They claim that God often sanctions their actions of violence.
