    I Am Sick Of How Both The Religious And Scientific Community Only Look At One Side

    Like Religious Fundamentalists and Naturalists fall into this trap of intolerance. I can understand why people would be turned off by Theism and Atheism when looked at from the perspective of Naturalism and Fundamentalism. On one hand, Atheism can be a cold system stripping all...

    Jesus Among The Other Gods

    There is no doubt that the number of different religions in the world makes it a challenge to know which one is correct. First of all let’s consider some thoughts on the overall subject and then look at how one might approach the topic in a manner that can actually get to a...

    People Who Say Their Religion Is The Only True Religion Are Only Lying To Themselves

    If people choose a religion for some personal reason, fine by me, I respect that.  If your reason for certain religious practices are for cleaning up the environment, helping the poor get on their feet, helping drug addicts recover, or some other noble reason, I respect that...

    What Needs Must Be

    First of all let me say how wonderful life is and second I'm appalled at all the anger and religious intolerance on here. Regardless of what you believe in I suggest you shouldn't force your beliefs on to others, because we have this thing called freedom and we should just let...

    Most Religions Have The Same Basic Idea

    In the grand scheme of things, every religion is correct.  At least in small ways.  Yet it seems, those small ways are lost to many of a religions believers.  The main feature I speak of is the message of loving your fellow man and not judging him.  These...

    "How Should Christians Stand Up For Their Faith In Such An Anti-christian World?"

    I feel as a Christian, the two things we can do to stand up for Christ are to live according to His Word and grow first in our own knowledge of Him. Christ said, “let your light shine before men…” (Matthew 5:16). This means that we should live and act in a way that supports...

    Cultural Relativism

    I am in the midst of a study of Cultural Relativism. CR is the view that all beliefs, customs, and ethics are relative to the individual within his own social context. In other words, “right” and “wrong” are culture-specific; what is considered moral in one society may...

    Appalled... But Not Surpised

    Not really. I don't follow a mainstream belief system. So I get all kinds of 'remarks'. Most are said out of blissful ignorance, others out of arrogance. And then there's the ones that are meant to be  hurtful, insulting and cruel. But... I was raised in a mainstream...

    I'm not exactly appalled

    because sadly intolerance is a thing that is almost expected to be found everywhere. But a lot of people on this site bother me. I'm a Christian. But I don't force my beliefs on anyone. I merely state what I believe and I try to respect other people no matter how absurd or...

    Compared to a lot of other sites I've been to, this seems like one of the few that isn't totally devoid of religious peoples' opinions.

    Love Is The Pennacle

    2 Peter 1:4-9 provides us a progression that leads us to a fruitful life in Christ.  Observe the way that this passage instructs to “add to”…take note also that we begin with a “whereby”, indicating that by that which was outlined in the previous verses we now have the...

    Religious Tolerance Does Not Equal Loss Of Morality

    The ignorant claim is that tolerance of other religions equals moral relativism.  Its the same ignorant claim that morality can only exist with strict, rigid rules.  That is utter crap.  If you think about it, the whole basis of all morality is the concern over the wellbeing...
