    When does a belief system fall into the religious category?  And when do they become Zealots in their beliefs.  Is Atheism a religion, if so when do they become Zealots. Paul was an anti Christian Zealot until he went down the road to Damascus.
         So My question is what exactly is a ZEaLOT ???   
    And how do we know when we become one ??   Help me  ai don't know if I want to be one or not.

        a zealot is a fanatical person. So is more likely that a believer would be.
      Or in the first centuries there was a jewish movement whose members were called zealots, fanatics as well

    I would think they are the ones who have total disregard for your personal religious/spiritual thoughts, opinions, practices and condemn one for not being the same. hmm

    Is a Zealot a person that has total disregard for the rights of others to have their own beliefs ( as Dame scribe said or)and or  feelings concerning anything or can only Christians be Zealous???? I don't know but I thought that the definition of a Zealot can cover much more range than just ... ME...   I used to believe Zealously that I should go fishing on Sunday!!

    Zealot~Noun

        * S: (n) Zealot (a member of an ancient Jewish sect in Judea in the first century who fought to the death against the Romans and who killed or persecuted Jews who collaborated with the Romans)
        * S: (n) partisan, zealot, drumbeater (a fervent and even militant proponent of something)

    Zealotry was originally a political movement in first century Judaism which sought to incite the people of Iudaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the holy land by force of arms, most notably during the Great Jewish Revolt (AD 66-70). Zealotry was described by Josephus as one of the "four sects" at this time.
    Search Wiktionary     Look up zealot in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

    The term Zealot, in Hebrew kanai (קנאי, frequently used in plural form, קנאים), means one who is zealous on behalf of God. The term derives from Greek ζηλωτής (zelotes), "emulator, zealous admirer or follower".[1][2]

      Earnest? Honestly, are you educated? I would tend to believe that you are and I see too you are not a child. So why then would stoop to the level of a child in your immaturity so as to name call?

      Can you not have a discussion where you do not do that? I think you can.

      Ok you choose to not believe and we do, is that any reason to sink to that level?

      I think you are a person who can reasonably assert your positions without doing that don't you think?

      Come man, can't we just all get along??? LOL big_smile

          OOPS! I guess I better note here that was a joke and not meant to reflect that you are in fact sad, or sick, or little, or even a man for that matter. LOL lol

            Yes I'm a sick little man. I'm going to die before the end of this year

              I am sorry tantrum I guess my joke was inappropriate then. I will pray for you though, really I will, in all seriousness.

              As I do all on here. Whether they believe as I do or not.
              Maybe even because of knowing that too.

              But I will tantrum. And I know you don't share my belief in healings then either, but I will pray and ask God for a healing in your body whatever the illness may be.

              Ok, well its time for me to stop now and get some sleep, nite all! smile

        You obviously wish to know as little as possible about the puppet in question. I have read his hate filled crud on here under other names, the stuff he has written would get you uppity too!
        He gets chucked off for a reason! smile

          When was I chucked off Earnest?
          For what offense?
          Proof?

    Earnest you seem to be filled with hate, even if you try and justify the hate, the hate will kill you early!!!

    What's a "zellot'?  I know what a "zealot" is.  smile

        Zellot is a fish restaurant near Vienna in Austria, but I think he meant a zealot

    I have read the encyclopedia. That word has been thrown around lately and I wanted to know what "yaul" thought it meant. A Zealot does not necessarily have to be a 1st century Hebrew. I think that we all have the ability to be a Zealot concerning any issue.

        I have pondering this issue for a few days.
        Faults are kinda like the back of knee caps.
        It is easier to see someone less than it is to see our own.
        We can do it but it takes extra effort.
        If the back of my knee cap says zealot somebody get an eraser
        Please
