Hi, I'm of another Faith although I did grow up Christian, baptized and born again, which I'm most grateful and appreciative of. I respect all religions and in fact believe that they are all from God. I would love to be able to discuss spiritual matters from all perspectives and I was wondering how that would be taken here since most of the discussion is Christian. Is it okay to respond to a thread from other Faith's perspectives as well as Christian? Would the poster be offended if I included some of my Scriptures and the Bible, of course, to a thread they had started? Just thought I would ask 🙂

(((fantas))), I myself wouldn't have a problem at all with that. However, I am fairly new to the liberation side so not sure how that works. I wouldn't know why that would be a problem though, I agree with you all religions are from God. "Freedom of Religion"...we are all believers of God.

I have found that most of the believers on this site are very tolerant of other believers and open to spiritual insight from whomever.

People are very tolerant like Tiger Trainer said. My thoughts as well. Please feel free to discuss your insight in spiritual matters.

Fantas,

I believe all religions are sacred. I have the highest respect for every single faith.

Hi all.....

I believe as soofoo...."I believe all religions are sacred. I have the highest respect for every single faith."

Thought I'd add my 2 cents.

I don't think I've been over here before. ;0) Nice place ;0)

Thank you all for responding. It's good to know that there are people open to hearing about other religions without judgement.

Hi fantas,

On the support threads, the guideline is to leave religion out of our posts.

Here on the Liberation Brew side, we can basically say whatever the heck we like!

For example, over here on libs it is ok for me to proclaim the one true Gospel, which very clearly instructs us:

1) "Marriage shall be strictly defined as the sacred union between a man and another man. Or sometimes, as the union between a man and a stuffed animal. All other unions are forbidden by God, and shall be not honored or recognized by any institution or government of man, upon pain of the punishment of eternal molten Velveeta."

2) "Those who do not obey His holy command to eateth of the steamed Broccoli with Velveeta sauce before sunrise of each day were then casteth into the lake of molten Velveeta."

I'm not crazy about Velveeta, but I know I don't want to spend eternity swimming in it, so to me, the Law is very clear and makes a lot of sense.

Anyway, you can say pretty much anything you like over here in Libs.

Yes, there are people open to hearing about other religions without judgement.

And there are those who are not.

Speak freely. Speak openly. Speak true to your heart.

You can't and won't be annihilated, but conversely made stronger by speaking despite those who belittle and mock.

This has been proven.

Do remember that 25% of all Americans from 18-29 (the young guns) dont have any religion (link to verify this posted in other thread).

25%, thats 1 in 4.

I think that many people on this site don't lay claim to a single religion and yet they have faith and believe in God. Furthermore I think the purpose of this thread is support faith and the believer.

The title of this thread is "Other religions". Buddhism in a Christian country would fall into the category of 'Other religions'.

The Buddha did not credit the existence of any 'God', or supreme being, in his sutras. It is my impression that the Buddha regarded any concept of the existence of a Godhead as delusional.

Nyanaponika Thera wrote:

"Quite contradictory views have been expressed in Western literature on the attitude of Buddhism toward the concept of God and gods. From a study of the discourses of the Buddha preserved in the Pali Canon, it will be seen that the idea of a personal deity, a creator god conceived to be eternal and omnipotent, is incompatible with the Buddha's teachings. On the other hand, conceptions of an impersonal godhead of any description, such as world-soul, etc., are excluded by the Buddha's teachings on Anatta, non-self or unsubstantiality.

In Buddhist literature, the belief in a creator god (issara-nimmana-vada) is frequently mentioned and rejected, along with other causes wrongly adduced to explain the origin of the world; as, for instance, world-soul, time, nature, etc. God-belief, however, is placed in the same category as those morally destructive wrong views which deny the kammic results of action, assume a fortuitous origin of man and nature, or teach absolute determinism. These views are said to be altogether pernicious, having definite bad results due to their effect on ethical conduct."

Thus not all religions are theistic.
