Bible calling for blind faith in its god, is that evidence that it is evil?
Image North Korea saying their leader is great, perfect, people must trust in their leader with all their heart and have blind faith in him, in reality, North Korea is a mess, continue violating human right, calling such violation of human right as justice. Bible claim the been it said to be its god to be great, perfect, people must trust in him with all their heart and have blind faith in him, yet the last time the west follow the bible, it got 1000 years of dark ages, poverty, inquisition, crusades, plagues and people only live to 35 and the bible call its human right as justice
You are telling me that this problem was always there. How noble! You are telling me, consciously or unconsciously, that the West is equally guilty. Much wisdom here. If we keep looking externally, we will see so much to complain about! Stalin and Hitler have gone. Bin laden has gone. Will more despondency come? Yes! Yes!
So what is the solution? There are those whose very nature is to seek solace in being guided, in following orders and again, the second kind will question, use wisdom, use the Heart.
Wisdom comes from within, like the mango comes from the seed. Everything begins in seed form before it can manifest in the world. You and I can serve the world with Light, more Light, by the vibrations that we offer the world and God knows it needs it right now. Largely, we get what we deserve. It is individual Hearts that must change, not minds. Much Love.
No. The collapse of the Roman Empire led to the dark ages, and the Bible wasn't the reason. Kim Jong Un (whatever his name is) is a ridiculous human being. To have blind faith in any man is just foolish. God, however, is different, a much higher power. God cannot be corrupt, God is always good and just. It is okay to put your trust in God, because God does what He says He's going to do, and He is perfect. As for the rest of your answer, poverty, inquisition, crusades, and plagues are not caused by following the Bible. Deceived men and women rulers created the Inquisition. Nowhere in the Bible does God or Jesus say to tie anyone to a stake and burn them alive. That is not how Jesus wanted people to come to him. The crusades were started to stop Muslim invasion. Are you seriously blaming the Bible for this stuff? This just proves you have not read it AT ALL.

Is there a difference between true faith and blind faith?I think true faith comes from prayer and reflection and meditation, while blind faith is believing in an individual rather than in the Word...eg: The May 21, end of the world forecast.

Hi friendsOne must think positively; no need to be skeptic “in the name of science” to start with, it is a negative thinking and of course a blind faith.ThanksI am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
