Why is it so important to some that everyone must share their spiritual or religious belief?


Or even their lack of belief? We cannot ALL be the only ones who know the truth about life,or God, or the bible yet so many people are convinced that they do know, and what's more, the rest of the world are mistaken and should also believe as they do.They quote the bible or other sacred books to make their point-but that only shows us what THEY believe. If you believe in A God, (or whatever name you wish to use) is not fighting and hating anathema to that God? If you don't believe in a God, why insist no one else should either?

    I agree. Nice comment. The unknown, indeed, scares people. They forgot (we all are), that we need to be happy like putting the unknown to our advantage by being excited, willing to be challenged by it.

    So true.....quoting scriptures and saying all the right words remains exactly that. Plus I'm not into, neither impressed with ones knowledge of scriptures and who they are as an individual defies their scriptures in addition to their belief.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. This is a topic that most people stop at the face value of "someone is trying to shove words down my throat." But they need to think. There is a reason people do this other than being right.

    Fair comment, Duffsmom, but I am genuinely interested in what people answer. Some of the answers here have already given me some understanding of why people feel it necessary that we all believe as they do.
