    If you are so sure YOUR version of "God" and YOUR religion are the only true and proper ...

    "God" and religion, what about believers in other versions of "God" and religions?  Why are you do you think the others are idiots and deluded and you are so smart and enlightened?  Be humble, now.

    Mocking you -- let's see how long this questions lasts before the religious zealot moderator removes it.

    God is Goodness, Religion is Evil.

    My faith is that we are to ALL love one another regardless (even those who would be our enemy) and it is not our place to "judge" for that is God's final task to perform for us.

    Although I do not mind openly discussing my beliefs and foundation in biblical scripture to point out things which are contrary to that, I still reserve the final decisions to Him as it is not my place to do otherwise.

    Actions speak more truthfully than words. So it becomes more of a matter of who is acting in accordance with these things,  who is living righteously or sinfully, not what they verbally say they believe in and do.

    All I know is that the scripture I understand and support (the Holy Bible) does state what the differences are, as far as who is in support of the one true God or not, and it is very clear in the fact that if you are not with Him, then you are against Him because there is no other alternative.

    Ultimatley, He will return to correct all these matters. So it comes down to a matter of conscience, whether you have done the right thing or not, we will all be convicted in our hearts to the real truth.

    All religions are essentially the same. While they may have gods or a god or a stone or whatever entity to worship, they share a commonality of belief in a diety and the requirement of faith that it exists without concrete proof. Since this form of sprituality can provide a "grounding" of thoughts and usually a set of moral standards, religion is overall a good thing for society. All religious activity has its validation and, lets face it, following a road of faith is absolutely a proprietary activity. No one religion can be proven better, only different. Its when a believer attempts to impose his faith on others or uses it as a rational for righteousness that the trouble starts. In the religious sense, we are all equal but remember that not everyone believes in some all-powerful divine being. Some of us just believe in ourselves.

    The whole idea of having faith in one or another vision of existence precludes any possibility of recognizing the plausibility of any one or another vision of existence apart from ones own. If I am so convinced that my belief is the one that reflects reality how could I avoid considering yours to be delusional if it is not the same as mine. The Agnostic is the only one who can avoid making any judgements and ironically his belief is really no belief at all.
