I think that is the basic question. If God is our creator, then of course we have to respect and cherish our fellow creatures.
That is why the question about Gods existence is so important.
Unfortunately belief in God does not always help us to accept each other. Now why is that?
God does not respect or cherish humans, he wipes them out at his whim or whenever he is angry. This is the lesson he teaches his followers so they too do not respect or cherish others.
What will make us respect and love each other?
We should start respecting and loving one another. It is enough that one is a human being; respect and love should be by default; it has not to be earned.
Well for me it worked the other way around.
If Id listened to some of my family's opinions growing up, I would have been indoctrinated to think all white people were power hungry and greedy for money.
I think that its because, to be frank, some people you encounter in life are dickheads... You will find it hard to respect a dickhead, and even harder to love a dickhead.
Respect is earned, respect those who deserve it and love those who love you in return.
Ah a breathe of fresh air.
Its not easy to love someone ,when they are being ..um what he said.
People will always have a problem with the concept of God. Very well then. Don't call him God. Just recognize that whatever created this beautiful, dangerous, complicated world has expectations of us that require us to put others before ourselves...peace follows.
You must first love and respect yourself. Then you will develop the intellect to transfer that o others.
What will make us respect and love each other?
You've to be an "ego-less" person... very difficult for the westerners to achieve! Dealing with poverty will help. So far you guys only dealt with materialism (most of you).

TRUST BREEDS LOVE.TRUST IS THE FOUNDATION OF LOVE.WITHOUT TRUST,THERE IS NO TRUE LOVE..IT IS TRUST THAT MAKES US LOVE AND RESPECT EACHOTHER.
You said; Unfortunately belief in God does not always help us to accept each other. Now why is that?
I think I know the answer to this one. Those who believe in God have religion.That's the answer to the question. Religion doesn't allow people to be accepting.
The problem is, different people believe in different gods, and it is human nature to want to be proven right. So, believers are willing to kill in the name of their gods. Even people of the same religion kill each other, because they have a slightly differnet belief concerning the same god. However, even if everyone in the world was an atheist, we would still find reasons to kill each other, it is just an innate part of our nature.
the only feeling to serve to serve and to serve
there are three things
1.to take to take...that's greed
1.to give and then to take...that's business
3.only to give to give and never ask for return...thats love.
i love because i like, so its me who had to be devoted...it comes back or not a lover never thinks, that's the work of a business man. better ask him.
You know people today talk about being a good person and treating people right which may very well be true But these action of right and wrong have long since been laid out. Let's go back to when right and wrong was about who had the strongest army, the most wealth, the most power.
It is a contradiction to say I'm a good person when we are born with a sin nature. Growing up we are taught or should have been taught how not to do this or not to do that because it is in us to do these things.
Now we can follow the rules of society and say we are a good person but to care for one-another means we have to call upon God to allow us to over look the smart remarks we like to make to each other, God has got to blind our mind and eyes to the taking advantage of each other. We could get along with each other wonderfully if we were to give in to God and rid ourselves of the pride we carry around with us everyday of our lives.
This I believe. Religion is not the answer, witness the Pharisees of the New Testament. God is love. God is Spirit. We are created in God's image. We are also carnal beings. In order to love someone we must allow our spiritual nature to transcend our carnal nature. I agree with your conviction that we must love and respect ourselves in order to love our fellow human beings.
