    Why would you get married?

    Salvation for believers but not 'from' anything since there is no original sin to be saved from. We only need to be saved from our own shortcomings, our lower nature that opposes our higher spiritual nature. The way we are saved from those is by following the teachings and laws of God that...

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    You are wrong about that. I have a religious reason to believe what I do about the soul, from its inception, through its life in this world, and its eternal destination. What do you have to support your belief about the soul? What proof do you have that what you are saying is true?

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    That would be true if those beliefs were based 'only' upon faith, but religious beliefs are also based upon evidence which justifies our belief. I know there is no evidence that would justify your belief in them, but hopefully we can agree to disagree. I do not use the word justify in the...

    Why should a Christian even look into Islam as a Possible true Faith?

    Nonbelievers have their own confirmation biases. They are biased against faith-based belief systems. It is their confirmation bias that constitutes a veil and prevents them from seeing the truth of any religion. Evidence for religion is interpreted subjectively. Nobody is completely objective...

    Why should a Christian even look into Islam as a Possible true Faith?

    I meant that you are not a Christian or a Muslim. So do I. I do not only look at things from a Baha'i perspective. No, not really, since they are not false just because they are not fully accurate. There is a lot of truth in both Christianity and Islam. Sometimes my own words are...

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    That is a religious belief, not a claim, thus it is not subject to proof. Catholics also believe that the soul begins at the moment of conception. I am saying I believe that the soul comes into existence at the time of conception, BEFORE the moment the entity becomes aware of its own...

    The Great Lie.

    ‘Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” (Rev 21:1) I believe that verse is symbolic, not to be interpreted literally. By that I mean I don't believe that heaven and earth are literally going to...

    The Great Lie.

    Then please explain what you meant. You said: I'm in no way saying the pain isn't there. Pain in this life is an inevitability. It's the condition of living. But non-attachment to that pain eliminates suffering. I speak from direct experience. If non-attachment to pain (whether it is...

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    It is not a guess. It is a faith-based belief.

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    I believe that is all true, but that does not exclude the possibility that the soul is associated with the human mind, which is what I believe.

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    According to my beliefs the soul is the person, but the soul associates itself with the body before we are a viable person: Each individual life begins when the soul associates itself with the embryo at the time of conception. But the association is not material; the soul does not enter or...

    Why should a Christian even look into Islam as a Possible true Faith?

    I agree. There is no reason to believe any of the older religions since we cannot really know what is true and what is false, given how much they have been corrupted by man over time. Why do you think that veils are being placed? Who would be placing those veils? I don't think you understand...

    The only solution is to love all mankind

    I am not sure if it is billions, but millions of Christians who are waiting for Jesus to return and fix everything that is wrong in the world. They believe that Jesus is going to build the kingdom of God on Earth single-handedly. That way they won't have to do anything but wait, but they are...

    The Great Lie.

    John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    What practical function does religion hold?

    I do not think that the practical function of religion has ever changed, so it is the same in modern society as it was in ancient times. “The greatest bestowal of God in the world of humanity is religion; for assuredly the divine teachings of religion are above all other sources of instruction...
