    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...

    With Peace And Understanding

    I want to talk about religion peacefully. I want to share beliefs, ideas and opinions without mean words and anger. We can learn from one another. I'm tired of religious conversations turning into hateful mudslinging.

    In This Group

    I ask everyone who posts in this group to please be courteous to others with different beliefs from your own, even if you don't understand them (or even if you do understand them). If you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all.

    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.
