Waiting on a Saviour

Visible to anyone in the world

I came across this recently and thought it was worth sharing and something to think about especially in the present times.

Hindus have been waiting for Kalki for 3,700 years.

Buddhists have been waiting for Maitreya for 2,600 years.

Jews have been waiting for the Messiah for 5,500 years.

Christians have been waiting for Jesus for 2,000 years.

Sunnah have been waiting for Prophet Issa for 1,400 years.

Muslims have been waiting for a Messiah from the line of Muhammad for 1,300 years.

Shiites have been waiting for the Mahdi for 1,080 years.

Druze have been waiting for Hamza Ibn Ali for 1,000 years.

Most embrace the idea of ​​a “saviour” and claim that the world will remain full of wickedness until this saviour comes and fills it with goodness and justice.

Our problem on this planet is that people are waiting for someone else to come and solve their problems, rather than doing it themselves.
