Dominion: Comments and Discussion
Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 12 Mar 2010

Dear Ruth:

It seems to us that we are really talking about the same thing when it comes to peaceful living with the whole of creation and truly doing no harm. The problem is how do we get their.

Richard and we are working with more that 85% of the US population, and many more people around the world who consider themselves to be either Jewish or Christian, the vast majority of whom totally reject anything that is seen as coming from an Eastern religion, and thus they are turned off to the term 'ahimsa'.

We're working within the Judeo-Christian religions to expose the misinterpretation of dominion and show that really means absolute stewardship and to do no harm, which is the concept of ahimsa, but we need to do it in ways that people will listen, and we are having slow but very good results.

Instead of arguing over terms, we need to find ways to work together to achieve our common goals.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
