Considering the abundance of sexually abusive religious leaders is anyone surprised? Of course not.
"Over the weekend, during the Savannah Bridge Run 10K in Georgia, a local TV anchor was discussing the race when the live camera caught one of the joggers slapping her [butt] as he ran by. The footage went viral both because of the shocked reaction on her face and the disturbing fact that the culprit, whoever it was, seemed to touch her so casually. Like it was a normal thing to do.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
This is what the Bible States religion is, so where does that leave us?, Are all these other topics just argumentative statements?
The Universe appears to be pretty huge – millions of galaxies, billions of stars, over trillions of light-years…
But what if it is not as vast as it seems?
What if it’s really only very tiny?
And what if all the distant stars, galaxies and exo-planets we can observe are all mere illusions?
What if we’re all alone, and our sun is the centre of the Universe and everything outside of our solar system doesn’t really exist in any great detail?
What if all the majesty and awesomeness of the...
I was thinking about whether we had childrens and then left them in a place where they could learn everything except religion or faith
No one will find faith in Jesus
They will not imagine that there is a god who came to earth to sacrifice himself
Likewise, other religions such as Hinduism or some of the Buddhist sects that believe in the incarnation of Deity or even Baha'i
They will never believe in any deity on earth because they will think they are a human element but it is...
So when you think about it, probably all of the ancient peoples had their god or gods imbued into whatever technology they had, which was cutting edge at the time. Noah's ark, the pyramids, the Staffordshire hoard, all of this was associated with divine forces. We do nothing like that at all in proper proportion within our age, with modern objects. To truly have the religiosity of the ancients we adore, we would have to imbue our gods into our computers, our skyscrapers, and our cars, and...
I would like to request from those who believe that Jesus will return in some form or the other based on Ahadith, could you quote Authentic, Sarih hadith from any of the books of ahadith?
My intention is to understand what ahadith are quoted as evidence to the topic. Clear-cut evidence, not inference. I would state my objections if the evidence is not clear, or if its not Sarih. Please do quote authentic ahadith only. This is a very wide area as some say there over a million ahadith and...
For people who are spiritual or religious the word, spiritual practice often comes up.
But what does it mean to you? What is the part of the practice? What is it you are practicing?
To me, spiritual practice means the cultivation of body and mind, to heighten the morality, speaking truth, being benevolent and show compassion toward others.
But it is the part of purifying thoughts, actions and spoken word that is the cultivation, then meditation and if the path one follows have exercised one...
I've had an audacious thought that naturally wants me to let it loose on the Internet...
The central revelation of all religion is the understanding and preservation of the meaning and value of the Name and that to which it refers. Meaning arises from the Name being good and valuable and in some way belonging to its knower. The meaning of the Name must not be sullied by associations with what is bad or of no value. In truth the Name pervades all things in such a way that the right mental...
