    Talk with God, no breath is lost. Walk with God no strength is lost. Wait for God no time is lost. Trust in God; you will never be lost! Who agree with this statement and what’s your standpoint?

      Which god? The Greek gods, Roman gods, Hindu gods, the Abrahamic god (Jewish, Christian and Muslim), the Sikh gods, Shinto gods, Taoist gods? Africa alone has at least 23 different spiritual traditions, each with their own deities. So when you say "talk with god", which one do you mean?
      exactly?

        Does it matter? Wouldn't the statement apply to most any god?

        Don, thank you for your reply. There is only one God and he our heavenly father.

          That would be the one mankind has labeled "Thor", right?

          But you have made some pretty sweeping statements here - can you support them with something other than your personal (unsupported) opinions?  Or was it like so many other claims - no more than a request for others to chime in with the same belief, thus supporting your own through the logical fallacy of argumentum ad populum?

            Don't you mean Odin?

              I appreciate your perspective and No, I do not mean Odin and I welcome what the bible say about one God. The Bible is no ordinary book. It is God's true word written especially for us. Ephesians 4:6 — One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

                " The Bible is no ordinary book."

                Neither is the Koran.  Or "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu.  Or the writings of Buddha.  Or even "Don Quixote", for that matter. 

                Outside of your personal belief system, what makes your book more special than any other?

                That was actually directed at Wilderness. Odin was Thor's father and considered to be the father of mankind; I believe.

                I have no problem with  your beliefs. Mine are similar; but I do assume it doesn't matter what you call the god you worship. There being only one God, they would simply be worshiping some aspect of that one.

                  I believe, like, all roads lead to where I stand, that all religions lead to God.  Only true-Christianity leads to forgiveness and eternal life by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and God's acceptance so we can approach Him.  However the Bible is clear that when we die, all will meet God...and it is every individual's choice where they will spend eternity (and eternity is a very long time).  Knowing God better now is like breath to me, and I desire to transcend even more when I leave this material world.   

                  Added:   I have a very hard time imagining a monoconscience having God, because it is a man-made religious manipulation to control masses with their own creation of a god, but try and tell them otherwise and you might get you head cut off.

                    I don't know that all roads or religions lead to God; except in the sense that God is in all things. I think we all seek but the condition of our hearts determines which direction we go so in seeking we may simply move further away.  I think the primary benefit of Christianity is that one knows and believes the good news of Jesus Christ. But, I don't think it would be good news if it were the news many Christians are spreading.

                    I get what you are saying about the desire to control masses but I also believe that this tendency people have to believe that whatever they believe is right because they are 'moved by the spirit' is foolish and dangerous.

    It works for me! And I think its true for any one who believes. There are many who do not believe, but that is just the way it is. Every one must follow their own path, remaining true to themselves. It's all about freedom. It's a beautiful thing. Have a nice day!

      Thank you so much, Paul, nicely explained, and I agree God gave us all free will. I believe, and it does work as well as a beautiful thing. You have a good day as well!

    In our country there is a saying that "God has created us but the religion is created by us". We have created the religion, different aspect of the God who is one. So follow any God you want indirectly you are following the God who had made us.

      Thank you so much princemaxp for that beautiful answer. I agree with you; God created us as we can follow any God we want, it only one God but many religions made by us. Regardless what religion we worship we following the same God. Be Blessed!
