    Religion War?

    Before I go and say somehting that someone will take wrong and get pissed at, Let me state that I am a Wiccan, but through out my life I was agnostic and studied the religions with no affiliation, so my thoughts and "philosophys" (if thats what you want to call them), are not...

    I get confused sometimes about the bible,

    I can't wrap my head around some of the things that God did in those days. Can someone answer me why God would terrorise Job; take everything from him, only to prove to satan that Job was a faithful servant and would not curse God's name or question his motive. If a man did that...

    I AM NOT trying to start a debate about whether

    or not the line I am about to quote is true. But, here is that line from a sermon I heard recently. "What you see from Al Quieda, Boka Harem, and ISIS, is true Islam. The peace loving Muslims are the nominal Muslims". Even if every syllable of that statement is true, other...

    I've always wondered why religious people consider their beliefs to be the ultimate and true beliefs, at times even going so far as to discriminate against and persecute those who do not share their beliefs. Who are we as human beings to assume that we know something involving...

    Why Is It That People Most Committed To Their Doctrine, Seem To Be Least Transformed By The Power Of Their Beliefs?

    I love talking with others about their diverse spiritual beliefs, but it seems like too often it turns into a debate over who is right and who is wrong. I started noticing that those who defended their doctrine the most tended to be the ones who had the least fruit, or evidence...

    Man Made Label

    Putting an infinite God in a box is most unwise. When you cage the beast, the beast gets angry. Man's attempt to reach God while holding back simultaneously is counterproductive and produces a stalemate. Labeling what you cannot quantify is nonsense. Besides, the path to God is...

    Religion and Faith Should Mean Peace.

    There are better ways to make a point than screaming at your opposition. It would be nice if everyone could just make their points, pure and simple, for all to consider, rather than just forcing their opinion on people.
