I have been reading about the history and culture of the Navajo People (Dine), and along the way have learned more about my own heritage. In trying to understand the meaning of what I am learning, one source said that the Navajo are Animists. So, when I read the definition to that, it feels to me that many/most religions approach Animism.
In reading about the culture in Shiprock, New Mexico, it was surprising to find the presence of at least six Christian churches in that town. What I see...
My girlfriend and I lived in an apartment nearby where we are at the moment. Usually, we would meet a neighbour on the way to the lift. He was a bit odd, awkward and had that sort of complainy and needy people pleasing(but fakey) attitude. Whenever we saw him, he would talk about his girlfriend a lot and how they are getting married and eventually how they got married. However, the whole time we were there, we never saw a ring on his finger or his girlfriend/fiance/wife. We sometimes met...
I've knew one Catholic boy in high school who thought "soul" meant a "dead person".
I once asked a methodist pastor what the word "soul" meant. He said YOU are the SOUL.
I once heard a radio preacher claim that a SOUL can't exist without a BODY whether dead or alive.
Some claim the SOUL temporarily leaves the BODY when a living person sneezes.
Some claim the BODY is the temple of the SOUL.
Some claim the human soul is immortal.
Sometimes the term soul is used for a human being whether...
I am technically agnostic about the claims of Christianity and Islam. I don't know if they are true or not, but of course I think they are highly unlikely to be true. But even if someone could convince me that one of these religions were true, I still would not convert to either of them. For instance, even if I were convinced with 100% certainty that Jesus died and rose from the dead, I still could not be a Christian. Similarly, even if I were convinced with 100% certainty that Mohammed...

(edit)These views that I'm discussing here are not mine. They're a rough approximation to some issues that I think other people have with Islam, which I want to address. I might not be doing them justice. I'm hoping that people who are concerned about those issues will explain them better. Otherwise I'll have to go searching myself, for the best explanations I can find of the issues that people have with Islam.(end edit)

I've thought for a long time that exposing the fallacies in anti-Muslim propaganda is worse than useless, but now I might have seen some examples of where that might have done some good. Maybe it can do some good if it's done in the right spirit. One way I've thought of to help free people from anti'Muslim prejudices might be to help diversify their images of Muslims, but I haven't found any practical ways of doing that. I had some ideas that I tried on Facebook, but it took an enormous...
While the book of Revelation is an apocalypse when it comes to its genre, it is not a pure apocalypse (1) in that it is set in the context of a letter. We can see this clearly in the following verses. The Book of Revelation is not really a book; it is in fact a letter addressed to churches in the province of Asia. By its own witness, this apocalyptic letter also contains prophecy (Rev. 1:3, 22:7).
It is common to think of prophecy as predictions, but to an Israelite mind prophecy is...
