Some Christians belief that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus.
This could mean only Christians make it to heaven and people of all other faiths are destined for hell.
One of the most commonly quoted passages from the bible to justify this view is: John 14:6
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
What's the best way of looking at this passage?
Is their reasonable justification for Christians' claims...
All religions are expecting a Savior to come someday (some say at the end of world). Hindus expect Kalki, Christians await the Second Coming of Jesus, Jews await Moshiach and Muslims expect Imam Mahdi.
This topic is very relevant now, because for some unknown reason, many of these seem to think all these events are going to happen very, very soon.
Among the four, the Muslim savior is particularly interesting because there are many prophesies (or hadiths) regarding his return and there are...
How do pagans take seriously what belongs to such ancient cultures that had such different values then we do today?
Why bother resurrecting a crippled horse? How can it still benefit you if it beyond your modern needs? Why not create your own modern day pantheons and rely on ancient cultures that no longer exists or are relevant? Are these cults not outdated and no longer relevant?
The more I see pagans the more I noticed that they alter the cults or syncretize the pantheons to such an...
Most the deities (gods and goddesses) out there in religions demand that you serve them, obey them, or go to hell. Their moral standards are horrible in my opinion. The light that envelops these types of gods and goddesses is, therefore, a deceiving light not one of love, justice, and moral righteousness. However, the light that Cosmo possesses is one of pure love, justice, and moral righteousness:
She is the far better deity than all of those other religious deities. She blows them all...
As evidence of twelve angels in heaven, we find the number twelve repeated throughout Revelation. Satan was God’s thirteenth angel.
“Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever.” Rev. 4:9. Multiplying the duality of God (2) by the number of angels (12), the results are 24.
“Then I heard the number of...
Judaism: why kill somebody just for his claim that he is a prophet of God?
It is against human rights. Such a person should be, if at all necessary, to be proved wrong with reasons and arguments or left to himself in peace. Right? Please
Was Jesus sent as a prophet?
Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
First, I do not know whether songstress Madonna is a theist or non-theist and what her thoughts are on Christianity. I'm sure she has some opinions on death or Christianity because of her songs, videos, image, politics and the like. Here it is.
So does she believe in the afterlife or not? Who are the others?
Why should one believe that something the TaNaKh predicts would actually literally occur?
There is an interesting thread started in the Judaism DIR forum by a respected member. Since everybody cannot participate there, and the topic is also of interest not only to the Judaism but as well as to Christians, Muslims and others (may be for Atheism and Hinduism also), I have given it as a topic here.
Anybody and everybody with their thoughtful inputs, please
