    Greater compassion for all peoples. Acceptance and respect for all religions. Practising spiritual precepts such as altruism and avoiding materialistic greed.

    GOD'S WORD!

    Oz said we should "Accept and respect other religions!"  If you BELIEVE The Creator, He says in II Kings 17:29;33-34 "Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt." (v33) They feared the LORD, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence. (v34) Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he names Israel;" 

    If GOD doesn't "Accept and respect other religions," why should we "IF" we BELIEVE The Creator - The GOD of Abraham, Issac and Jacob? 

    Verse 35 says "With whom the LORD had made a covenant, and charged them, saying, Ye shall NOT fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them."  Why then, should we "Accept and respect other religions?" 

    One should not worship a god because of one's "geographical location," but one should worship THE ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the ALMIGHTY "I AM," the "Creator" of the universe!!!

    Why do we continue to "go alone to get alone," rather than telling ALL "TRUTH" of what IS WRITTEN in the Word of God?  "TRUTH" is "LOVE!" 

    Therefore, the most "useful" thing "for the transformation of human nature" is to tell "TRUTH" of what IS WRITTEN in His Word so ALL may obtain eternal life!

    II Peter 3:9 says "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL come to repentance."

      Thanks Norine. This is an open platform to incorporate other views as well. Sometimes they add to the richness of the discussion. All mangoes and no oranges or other fruits can be dull, as all boys and no girls.

      Either one "believes" THE CREATOR who has left the Bible as our instruction for salvation or man-made gods! 
      We ALL have a "choice" (Joshua 24:15)!
