Respect should be a default faculty of man

    Hi friends

    Respect should be a default faculty of man – one earns it simply by birth from the fellow human beings.

    Thanks

      Perhaps you could show some for God's prophet Paul then.

        Hi friends Disappearinghead

        But by defacing the beliefs of Jesus and his teachings Paul earned disrespect; his own fault.

        Thanks

          Paul enforced the teaching of Jesus. On what evidence do you have that He defaced the teachings of Jesus?

          You simply say Paul was defacing those teachings from your belief that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God and expect us to say "Hey thanks Paar for clearing that up for me, I was wrong all along. Please enlighten me with your pearls of wisdom."

          When you don't believe the foundational truths, it is to be expected that you won't believe the truths built upon that foundation.

          You expect the world to believe Muhamed. On what basis do you have that he was telling the truth?

          Well Paar I don't believe Muhammed. I don't believe Gabriel spoke to him either. I believe that the Arabs were an unruly bunch so Muhamed came up with a new religious system to bring them to heel.

        Hi friend  Disappearinghead

        The respect does not mean one should give a false status to someone who does not deserve that. Paul was a false Prophet, in my opinion, and he got killed in terms of the book OT he believed in.

      I agree. Everyone deserves respect up until the time they do something to earn disrespect.

      This from a person who under another identity here displayed his disdain for Jews, socialists and a list of people and organisations as long as my arm!

      lol lol lol Maybe I should post one of your previous identity's posts each time you post a new thread?

      Full of hate and paranoid, you were banned. Then you re-appear not only with a new profile, but apparently with a totally different set of values and beliefs!
      What happened? smile

    Islam gives respect to others ? I wonder why there are no churches, temples in islamic countries. Oh wait, for them other religions are false and on other hand they talk about freedom of expression,respect, human rights..oh irony.

        Skyfire obviously hasn't as he would note that places such as Egypt and the UAE are full of Churches and temples! Even Iran has synagogues and a fairly vibrant Jewish community in Tehran.

    Hi friends

    Strictly speaking, it is not rational to divide countries on the basis of religion; religion and faith is personal and the countries do not have faith or no-faith. Is America a Christian nation? No, many diverse people live in it.

        Hi friend manlypoetryman
        I started a thread; Is America a Christian nation? And people said no, it is not.
        So it proves that the countries should not be divided on the basis of faith or religion. I think that is a good proof. You may howeever differ with me due to your free will. I don't mind.
        Thanks

          Hi friend

          Whatever...? That didn't make a bit of sense...and I know I'm probably the "bad" one for saying anything ...but you say a lot of nonsense a lot of the time...which is your right...but then you try to back it and convince everyone that your right!

          That's still your right...according to your free will!

          Right now...my free will is telling me that I am tired of listening to you bad mouth Christianity...according to my free will...I have decided to make one or two objections in reference to it...to you. Nothing personal...It's all about the Peace!

          Thank you for allowing me to differ with you, my friend...I think that I will...very much!

    Hi friend

    I'm not going down the road where you keep getting to have the last word and your version of instructing me and others...according to how "wise" you think you are. I said what I wanted to... Peace.

    Respect is something to be earned by your own actions; it is not automatically granted by virtue of birth.

    Courtesy, on the other hand, IS granted by birth until abused.  Courtesy and respect are often construed as the same thing, but they are not.

      Another thing that is seen incorrectly... 
        Rights and privileges
        I don't think that we have as many "God given" rights as we all too often assume.

        Privileges are something else entirely
