Peace has been a religious concern for a big part in history. Regardless of one's faith tradition, rejection of institutional religion, spiritual direction or complete atheism. The work by peaceful religious initiatives ice encouraging and should be encouraged. Followers of every religion can cite from scripture that justifies violence but all of the world´s religions also contain scriptural teachings that advocate peaceful relationships among all people.


Christianity: Whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them. Matthew 7.12”

I think is a little bit selfish. You can´t just do whatever you feel like it doesn't work like that. So no I don´t think it is peaceful.


Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. Talmud, Shabbat 31a”

I think it is peaceful, like don´t hate on other people just because you hate it.


Islam: Not one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. Forty Hadith of an-Nawawi 13”

Is peaceful, Love your brother as much as you love yourself.


Hinduism: One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of morality. Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva 113.8”

For me this is peaceful, just don´t do anything bad to someone if you doesn´t want someone to do that to you. In Confucianism they say the same thing just in other words, some religions are alike.


Buddhism: Comparing oneself to others in such terms as “Just as I am so are they, just as they are so am I,” he should neither kill nor cause others to kill. Sutta Nipata 705”

I think it is peaceful because everyone is equal, you and I are the same.


African Traditional: One going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts. Yoruba Proverb (Nigeria)”  

This is peaceful, see how it hurts before you do it to someone else.


Confucianism: Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you.” Analects 15.23”

I think it is just like in Hinduism, is peaceful and it makes sense. Would everyone think like this I think we would have more peace in the world.
