1.Is such a thing possible ? Why / Why not?

On just meditating, realized that there are two independent parts of us....
The Infinite soul, which stores our experience, and learns wisdom from our life times...
It can be in a state of pure consciousness, especially on recognizing the death of the physical, as it can be fully one with God/Brahman/Universal Mind (CPU).
It is connected by our heart, and thus regulates the whole energy within the body.
The finite self, is the physical mind, it projects our ego as a defense mechanism....
I would like to ask a question.
Im a christian but I am in love with a muslim men..
However we came across something which is blocking us from getting married and its very serious as we are even thinking of breaking up because we cannot compromise..
Both of us have our own religion which is fine but when it comes to our children, I would like them to be christian and my boyfriend is saying they must be muslims as per his religion. In islam if the children doesnt follow...
Sure looks like it. That is if one believes slavery is immoral. For those of you who don't, you're excused to go and attend your Bund meeting.
"In contemporary times, slavery is almost universally reviled; while human trafficking and similar practices are still far too common, people generally no longer argue that human beings should be owned like property."
Both the Old and the New Testaments have instructions regarding slaves which contemporary Jews and Christians generally disregard,...
While reading the Bible, I noticed hints of Socialism in the New Testament and even the Old Testament. Jesus says 'Feed the Hungry, Clothe the Naked, Shelter the Homeless'. In Luke 3:11, it says "And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”. It is possible that, despite association with Conservatives, it is entirely possible that Christianity is a Socialist faith.
What I think is that mainstream Christianity has been totally and inexorably influenced by Saint Paul's philosophical speculation which doesn't match with the most important principles of the evangelical message (the Gospels) To sum them up, it is sufficient to say that the Gospels clearly speak of the Kingdom of God, which is attainable only through men's efforts, so therefore Heaven is reached only through free will, that is, the choice of Good and the rejection of sin.
On the contrary,...
The bible tells about his birth then has one incident as a child then skips up to his adulthood? Id think that that's a huge thing to leave out.
It also says he escaped to Egypt and lived, I saw a tv show that said with King Herod in leadership for howeve rlong Jesus would've had to live along time in childhood in Egypt and he would braised as an Egyptian learning the Egyptian religion. Sense Egyptians believe in resurrection why shouldn't I believe Jesus just took Paganism back to his...
I think this is a very important question that all philosophies need to answer. In many cases, theism really understates the role of the individual in existence. The focus is on god, the outside world and its creation, things like that. And for political reasons, undermining the individual makes a ton of sense, because it takes away control. But even with the most closed minded of theists, the self has to be center to all you belief. As the title says, what do you know of your gods, morals,...
