I see people claiming to be Christian who want homosexual behavior to not be a sin
My Bible says:
Thou shalt not lie with mankind … it is abomination, Lev. 18:22 (20:13).
There shall be no … sodomite of the sons of Israel, Deut. 23:17.
declare their sin as Sodom, Isa. 3:9
men … burned in their lust one toward another, Rom. 1:27.
nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Cor. 6:9.
them that defile themselves with mankind, 1 Tim. 1:10.
as Sodom and Gomorrha … going...
That is what I see happening.
The world events are fully reflecting both the promise of a United Future and the destruction of an old dysfunctional Old World Order.
So when will we get there, the Baha'i Universal House of Justice offered this in the 1985 Peace Message.
"Whether peace is to be reached only after unimaginable horrors precipitated by humanity’s stubborn clinging to old patterns of behaviour, or is to be embraced now by an act of consultative will, is the choice before all who...
Shout out to Sgt. Pepper who gave me the idea to create this thread.
I'm sure for many, in fact, most people, that the religion they are in now is the one they know and understand the most about. But I suspect for Sgt. Pepper he/she probably understands Christianity even more than his/her Wiccan beliefs.
I understand Exaltism very well, because I develop it every day. However with that being said my beliefs can be written down in one large essay and be done with. Yeah, sure, I keep...
Every religion has its teaching but each religious person will have their own understanding of the teaching. There will be times a believer will disagree with the teaching, especially in the beginning until their understanding of the wisdom of the teaching rise within them.
So no religion is not just black and White. One should not blindly follow, the study are ment to awaken the person slowly to the full truth.
Say a higher being makes itself known to you
And identifies itself as God
How can you be sure it is God and not some wicked imposter?
This happened to me
Turned out that "God" was actually the superintendent Superbrain of the simulation (which I call The Projection)
But I only think he misidentified itself as at that early time I had no concept of reality being a simulation, not out of any ill intent
To its credit, once I had ideas in my head about reality being a simulation it...
One could reply that it looked like Shiny Light, but I know better. It was "Heightened perception of reality." People, things around felt extremely real and full of Life and Love. It was not near-death experience.
And I have seen my Guardian Angel as well. He was like warm fire. He has kissed my lips. The Miss Love is God. Love is Being. Definition:
Spirit is NOT matter, and matter is not Spirit. God is not cat but Spirit. Holy Spirit. Love. Miss Love. Love is not rose you gave mother, but...
Yesterday (for me) i was answering about a question relating to baha'i scripture and homosexuality. And i replied something like "I can not tell other what they can and can not do in their belief/faith."
The person who made the question then directly assumed i had to be a homophobic, hateful person against every LGBTQ person.
I just wonder, how is it possible to conclude that a person is homophobic or hateful from a reply like the one i gave?
Just to clerify my true stand on it, i am...
This one's for the Atheists:
What would it take for you to follow a religion?
I mean, if a religion turned out to be verifiably true, would you follow it?
Assuming there were tons of evidence available for it that would make an absence of belief akin to denying the evident?
For instance, if Jesus were to very publicly return to Earth from Heaven and start working miracles would you become a Christian?
If you are an Atheist due to an absence of belief, would this give you cause to...
