Surrender Your Judgement

Here's something interesting I found.

Type into Google:

muslim surrender

And the first entry is about the Muslim Concept of Surrender to God

Now type into Google:

Jesus Surrender

The first entry points to "Surrending To Jesus".

How one chooses to surrender to ones faith is a matter of personal judgement, but you can see how a misguided leader can tell his flock to participate in suicide bombings, justification of bombings of abortion clinics, bombings of churches, invasion of countries.

The problem is inherently hard to solve though. How many times at work when you had to surrender your personal judgement because your boss told you to just "do it"? I do at least once a week, and I'd often say I'll do it, but under protest.
