    belief/ideology that is different from theirs?  No one faith, religion, doctrine, and/or dogma has any preeminence over another?  In other words, there is NO ONE TRUE religion/faith. All roads lead to God, the Universal Force, Higher Self, or Higher Consciousness.

      Because, clearly, an ancient collection of mistranslated, heavily edited, bureaucratically-selected fairy tales is the only reliable source.

        Oooooouch, so on target and succinct!  Some people just DON'T get it at all!  They are metaphorically asleep.  When will THEY AWAKEN to the TRUTH of the matter!

          That's the problem. You think there is a truth that can be known. As do they. This thread appears to be evidence that you are offended by an ideology different from your own. Are you so different? Are any of us?

      Totally untrue. Very few roads lead to God. the widest road leads straight back to this sh@thole and Satan, the lord of this world.

        If you're referring to the planet Earth, I couldn't be more excited, bewildered, awestruck and completely blown away by everything on this planet, and all the things I've yet to see. It is wonder and a marvel to observe. It literally is paradise if one could find any relative reference to such a place.

        It's mind boggling how you believers can describe Earth using such terms. There must be some correlation between how indoctrinated a believer is compared to their hatred of reality. smile

    Christians aren't "threatened" or "afraid" of other beliefs, not for themselves personally.    Although we do sometimes have to watch where and when and how long and which people we spend time or communication with, in order to avoid temptation.
    They (we) are afraid for the souls of others.   Including those of people we're close to who are subjected to false and spiritually-fatal doctrines.

      I see, not threatened. Just feel your religion is the true one and feel patronizing to those who choose to believe differently.

        Do you not pursue, support and defend the ideology you hold to be true?  Do we only see love and tolerance of all views from you?

      When I speak of stuff I have no idea about but believe what the ancient books wrote, I'm always right.
      You are not concerned about others souls but only validity in numbers, the more people believe this the more correct I am.

      Souls have never been shown to exist, hence your fear is just a delusion.
