Does God encourage believers today to fight and war against people of different beliefs till their own religion triumphs? (Holy War / Jihad)

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Romans 12:17-19 – 17. Repay no one evil for evil... 18. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath… Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.

Hebrews 12:14 – Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

Al-Baqarah 2:190-193 – 190. Fight for the sake of Allah... 191. Kill them wherever you find them… for tumult and persecution are worse than killing… 193. And fight them until… religion is for Allah…

At-Tawbah 9:29 – Fight against those from among the People of the Scripture who do not believe in Allah…

Note: Jihad is the largest subject in the Qur’an: 139 verses out of 6,236 = 1 out of every 45 verses. The Hadith is 21% about Jihad: The Sirah (the biography of Muhammad) is 67% about Jihad. 64% of the Qur'an is malevolent against the "Kafir".
