I honestly love and accept people, regardless of their religious/spiritual beliefs. (I'm a Christian)
I feel everyone deserves respect and dignity
I have friends from a variety of religious persuasions and I love them all. I may disagree with their beliefs but love them as a unique human being, which is a central part of my faith.
God creates man with free will to think independently.<br />
Lower creatures don't have free will and rational sense<br />
to make choices. They live in herds, while man lives<br />
personally in conscious love and cooperation.<br />
God educates human beings by sending down His<br />
Divine Messengers with His Counsels which are<br />
divinely recorded in Holy Books.<br />
By independent investigation of Truth, with physical<br />
senses, reason, inspiration, intuition, experience,<br />
prayers and meditations, man get into communion<br />
of God and translating His counsels into actions.<br />
The highest attainment of a man cannot contain<br />
the omniscience of God, so he cannot expect other people<br />
to shape themselves in his fr<x>ame.<br />
I think that each human being is completely free<br />
to attain self-realization in his own way with or<br />
without the guidance of God.
Amen. Doesn't matter one bit, as everyone is entitled to think anyway they want.
love all people no matter their beliefs.
You have the right to feel any way you want. Faith is a private thing No one has the right to jam religion down your throat And a lot of "religious folks" don't really have true faith at all
I honestly think we should respect each other's views on religion and say nothing disparaghing to each other.
Let us pray.....
I wish that everybody agreed with me but I know that's not going to happen.
I believe that my religious beliefs are best. If I didn't then why would I put my faith in my beliefs. As a christian my desire is for everyone to find salvation through Jesus Christ. This desire comes from a love for mankind and not from a desire to be "right".
Yes, but how do you find your own path without learning from others and their experiences. Anyone who thinks that they can find it on their own, well, to me that seems a bit arrogant, and I believe we all have a responsibility to help others in their search.
Sadly it's true that many people claiming to be christians have an un-christlike attitude toward those in need of help, and you are absolutely right about many christians voting conservative, including myself. The Bible teaches they we are to assist those in need but there are different opinions on the best methods for doing that. Many are against our "welfare state" as it seems to be self-perpetuating. I wish I had a solution [like they would listen to me anyway]. Social issues like abortion, religious freedom and such are what tie many christians to the conservative politics.
We all have to have the same views on everything , same book, same god, or else.<br />
Ah, don´t we all miss the bright days of the Inquisition ?
up to them i suppose , as for myself i'll still pray
You have yours, I have mine, as long as we can both respect that and co-exist it's all good.<br />
and if can't I'll just have to go Jehad on you like a mother-fuker..
Live and let live
