All Abrahamic faiths include the Law of Moses in their holy writings.....some comments in another thread prompted me to ask....do all follow the instruction from God given through Moses?
Deut 5:9, 10:
"I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments." (ESV or whatever translation you use.)
I keep flip-flopping between religions and I'm tired of it. I should just learn my lesson - polytheism doesn't really click with me and it's a lonely experience for me. It doesn't bring me peace of mind and I don't really feel the gods, not in the same way I've experienced the Christian God in the past. That's just my experience.
But I am very angry and bitter at Christians, specifically Catholics, for how they have treated me and people like me. I do not feel like I was really accepted as...
Do you, as a Christian, live your life according to the Bible? Before you answer "yes", consider this:
In Matthew 5:17-19, Jesus very explicitly says NOT to annul any of the OT laws. Those laws are to be followed. When he says Laws and Prophets, he is talking about the Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy) as well as the books/scrolls of the Major and Minor prophets. Knowing that, reconsider the title question. Then answer these questions truthfully:
1. Do you eat pork in any form? Bacon,...
Since the Tao can be ascribed as being the way, and the logic that was there from the beginning of reality, through the Tao all things were made.
We find more or less the same thing with Dharma, that it is the right way, the logic there from the beginning of reality.
Find them more or less the same, other than that Dharma claims to be the right way; with Adharma being its opposite....
Whereas the Tao is the logic; yet seems to be more grounded in being neutral...
Like Dharma, and...
Is this the "spirit" direction the watchtower uses for translating their "divine truth"?

Geraint Watkin is also a member of the Bethel family. In the early 1980’s, he turned down a university education in favor of pioneer service. He supported himself with part-time work on his father’s farm. He enjoyed the pioneer work and hoped that someday he might become a missionary. So why did he apply for Bethel service? An article in The Watchtower in...
Eden. Original Sin or Original Virtue?
“Judaism preaches the Rise of man: and instead of Original Sin, it stresses Original Virtue, the beneficent hereditary influence of righteous ancestors upon their descendants’.”
From John Galt's speech, in Atlas Shrugged.
“What is the nature of the guilt that your teachers call his Original...
I’m a Christian with very unique viewpoints and would like to hear people’s thoughts on them. I’ll give some backstory of my life first so it’ll be easier for you guys to understand why I think the way I do. I have a habit of writing novel sized posts, so just a warning.
I’ve been a Christian since age 3. I’m now 22. My perception of Christianity has changed a lot over the years. My life experiences have been a huge factor.
A lot of what I mention will be ripe for debate, but I know this...
So me and my friend were talking about religions. And he said asked me do I respect the 10 commandments and listed them. I answered yes to all. I do respect them. Then, he asked do I help other people. I answered Yes. He asked me what do I do. I said: Today I helped my brother with picking up 30 min of his trash so when he come home he doesn't have to. I also cleaned my mom's room as a surprise. altogether about 2 h. I then asked "What is hell?". He explained it and I asked who goes to hell....
