Resolving the Eschatological Crisis

So how do we resolve the eschatological crisis apparent in Islamic extremism which spills over into violence? Maybe the following:

  • The First Choice: Live a quietest religious life aiming to attain Paradise. Use religion personally. Have a strong religious identity that is private and personal.
  • The Second Choice: Dissociate from extremist interpretations.- even if mainstream or attractive. Isolate and insulate yourselves from bad things – nominal believer. This may involve belonging to another sect e.g. the Ahmadis or Sufis.
  • The Third Choice: Leave the religion (or convert).
