You take all the good teachings of Jesus, Buddah etc, condense them, and make them moral/social requirements for day to day life. You take all the gods of all religions and fuse them into one entity, its name would literally be Super God. People are not required, but rather encouraged to believe in Super God. Reward for belief would be eternal bliss in paradise. "Punishment" for non belief would be to be reincarnated and continue life on earth until belief in Super God is acheived. Thats pretty much the bare basics. And no, this is only being half serious about things. Thoughts?

Who would pay the 'organizers'? You can't seriously be suggesting that parents understand how to raise their own little parishioners? That parents be responsible enough not to lie to their children about misunderstood things?
Austinstar, Maybe I'm giving parents too much credit! LOL! I've never been a fan of "organized religion". :)
You have taken the words out of my mouth. Why have an organized religion at all in this postmodern society People are owners of their spirituality. Religion and/or spirituality should be between them & God or their own source of Higher Being.
Exactly what I was going to say!!!
If i had to pick one to follow, Super God sounds like a pretty chill guy. A lot less bias and hate.
Religions are like a$$holes - everyone has one!
And what is yours, Austinstar? Aren't you atheist? LOL
Actually, there are over 9000 religions on Earth. Probably most claim to be Absolute Truth, but none can answer all questions. Choose whichever suits you best; if that's none, so be it.
Say Yes - My religion is food. Love the stuff!
EXACTLY! THANK YOU!
Or flying spaghetti monsters! LOL. Yep, you can have any religion you want in the USA.
I agree with everything you said, except the part about allowing people to abuse you. Back in WWII, Winston Churchill said all that was necessary for evil to prosper is for the good to do nothing.
First, look up the def. of "worship". Not all people practice this. 2nd, No one knows what "REAL" Christianity is. They may think they know, but they do not. Too many disagreements amongst Christians for it to be "REAL".
But of course, you know, Austinstar.
No, Lybrah, I do not know what real Christianity is and neither do you. This is evident because Christianity contains hundreds of different sects all claiming that they are the REAL Christianity. No one can even figure it out.
Reading comprehension does wonders on the internet, Lybrah.
Austinstar, when I say worship, I mean whatever you give affection and allegiance to.
I have been saved by Jesus Christ. I'm being renewed in Him each day. Real Christianity is from Christ, and the life I live is in His power, not my own.
Go to the top of the class for indoctrination, Fit2day.
You say, " It denies the fact that Jesus was 100% man and 100% God." So, Jesus/God is 200% Strange then. The N.T. repeatedly says that Jesus is the "Son of Man". Not a God, not the "son of God", He was just a rabbi if he was real at all.
Austin.... and again you are misinterpreting the Bible. I suggest you study "ALL" the Bible before making such ludicrous statements.
Son of man = son of God. Same thing. Jesus was BOTH God and man.
johnnycomelately, what's your goal here,
Austinstar, Jesus is and always was God, He came to earth as a man, leaving His throne to die for sinners like you and me. Is your goal to insult Christianity or are you seeking truth?
Fit2Day, indoctrination is your problem when it stops you thinking beyond your repetative unintelligent dogma.
johnnycomelately, I have found out there is a God, it's not me, I'm not here to tell anyone about my credentials or to prove how intelligent I am. You want to call me unintelligent, fine, but I have Christ, why would I search for a lie?
And a good chunk of them assert that theirs is the correct one, none of which ever seem to bring solid evidence to the table to prove that.
Seems to be more like a game of who has the better god most of the time.
LOL! And the problem with a new, all-inclusive religion would be that someone would decide they don't like something about it and branch off into yet another new, all-inclusive religion.
Nothing wrong with that, provided it keeps to the same guidelines in voiding eternal punishment for something as silly as non belief as well as the good teachings of all religions.
Kind of the whole point of this post

Stas, since you taught yourself English you have done quite well. I encourage you to keep learning. There are self-teach course via the Internet.
LAST CHANCE to send in a dollar! Remember the prisoner who became a millionaire through this scam? At least he didn't warp people's minds through establishing a cult! LOL!
I'm not talking about the cult. I'm talking about harmony. We are imperfect. Only God is perfect. This means only the perfect organization can make us happy!
Especially for Alan. I do not want to know English perfectly because I am not a US citizen
Read my response to Revelation 13, the False Christ, God the Son and the Trinity Doctrine!
Strangely enough, what you are saying is true. It's like smoking, eventually, everyone quits!
All religions are trying to do the same thing; explain how the world works, and how to live the best life here. As long as they don't go off track and become dictatorial cults, there's no problem.
"... not about religion but a relationship...." what a preposterous promotion of parsonage and proprietorship in order to proclaim presumption of superiority!
Stop kidding yourself!
Mmm, so by that logic Christianity was doomed before it started, since there were plenty of other religions that came before it.
Only if you don't believe!
So you really have to think the Rabbit was in the Hat all the time Link.
Put away that logical mind and just Believe! Thinking will get you no where!
I am sorry you couldnt actually say anything about the post, rather than compare it to the Anti Christ.
L Ron Hubbard wrote many successful books and convinced his followers to believe in strange things. Just like the writers of the bible!
You know how you get worked up when we take issue with Christianity and how we don't believe it, and u feel persecuted? Why do you do it to other religions if you don't like it done to u. It may b false 2 u, but so is Christianity to some.
I don't know what you are talking about. Link is an atheist, for all intensive purposes. I'm not criticizing another religion, unless you want to count Scientology as one.
Agnostic atheist, if you would.
Many people do count Scientology as one - so, yes, you are criticising another religion. You don't like it when yours is criticised, why do it to another? I'm neither religion - I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy.
Pot calling the kettle black and all.
So rather than keep to your word that you wont interact with me, you break it to call me a narccisist. Indirectly of course.
How very christian of you. Thanks for the comment JT.
How do you know what "christian" is? So how are they supposed to act? You people think we are to be sounding boards for everything foolish and egotistical you have to say. Everything you say is condescending and rude. You worship yourself!Narcissist!
Is that based off your own biased viewpoint, or is it based off of personal info about me? I would have to go with the former, since i dont recall ever saying i worship myself.
Nice of you to assume and generalize things though.
JTh42, do you get accolades from your congregation every time you stand up for your religion? Are they all so gullible?
