    Only Christians: what are the limits of mixing denominations?

    Keep in mind we are not in a debate section, so please do not correct anyone. I'm just gathering and don't want to get into an argument about who is or isn't a christian or why I shouldn't believe this or that. (sorry posted in wrong section) These are important considerations, but I have a...

    Christianity and Atheism commonality.

    Christians believe "Blessed are those who wash their robes" as mentioned in the bible (Revelation 22:14). This means anybody who doesn't wash their clothes are dirty and filthy. Ashiests also think people who don't wash their clothes are dirty and filthy. I think we can all agree regardless of...

    Power of Relics

    Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and many other religions have relics. Sometime their small trinkets spanning into weapons and even human body part remains or full bodies. It is fascinating to me that so many people would treasure these relics for so long. It really shows how...

    (Catholics) Why do some Catholic churches do the wine drinking ceremony and other Catholic churches don't?

    Why do some Catholic churches do the wine drinking ceremony and other Catholic churches don't? Some churches do it with the eucharist, but other churches don't do it at all. This happens during Holy Communion.

    Unity within Religious Groups

    The Baha'i Faith is a very interesting religion. It allows its members to do virtually anything they want and remain a Baha'i. If you are gay and want to have a gay marriage, you cannot have a gay Baha'i marriage, but you can get married the secular way if your government permits it. There's a...

    I recently had said that monotheism is a contradiction because it is impossible to not be of the Universe yet be involved in it in so many ways. That's probably not true. I mean, look at the Internet. I'm interacting with all of you despite not being in your house. But exactly what does God do...

    Not Christianity, But Something Similar...

    I have a belief that borderline makes me Christian. Let me explain. I believe that Christ was born of Mary and Joseph, that Mary wasn't a virgin when she conceived Jesus, and that the miracles that Jesus supposedly performed during his lifetime either didn't happen or were greatly exaggerated...

    Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, Syncretism and relationship

    Howdy ho! At this point I may as well call myself Syncretism cat. Recently I was meditating and praying as is my usual activity. Sometimes I mix up which form of God I focus on though usually it is Kali, Shiva, Waheguru etc. This time I decided to use Christ as the center focus and use the...

    Systems, Theology, No path Path

    Howdy! I just felt like sharing some thoughts. The universe started with a divine dance. Not something like a waltz but something more like salsa. Shiva and Shakti came together, and their dance created all things. There was passion, lust, adventure, thrills, horror and so many other things...

    The Bible Is A Heavily Outdated Book

    Nothing in the bible and what it says can be applied to the normal way of life today. Heck, some of its texts are almost 3,000 years old! The bible is a collection of 66 books composed by random authors over the course of a very long period of time. Most of the authors, at least in the old...

    The "Lukewarm Christian" Logical Fallacy Debunked

    Ex-christian here. When I was a christian I was presented with two distinct forms of christianity; one where you say a few abracadabra words and you are good to go and the other was "you just have to keep at it or you are lost." The latter makes LESS sense than the first concept if you are a...

    Interesting Experience and Thoughts about Interconnection

    So It's been a little while since I posted on these forums but I have been continuing my practice. Yesterday I was doing my normal ritual worship and meditation. I offered a banana to Ma Kali then bowed down so my head touched the floor. When my head touched the floor I was immediately filled...

    Poll: Jesus - Liar, Lunatic, Lord, Legend or Lost?

    Lewis's trilemma - Wikipedia I know, I know, there's a lot of threads out there that are already like this. But I wanted to make a specific poll that asks people this specific question. I am not looking to proselytize anyone. I am not even a Christian. There is a saying that Evangelicals using...

    Your Christian Identity

    If you identify as Christian, what is your belief, or view on cussing - profanity - using abusive speech or words. I'm referring to those words which most news media and TV channels censor. @Kenny @InChrist and others, I would really like to hear your side on this. Could you also identify...

    Asking Questions and Not Taking it All So Seriously

    Howdy! I just thought I’d share some thoughts while they were fresh in my mind. I’ve been fascinated with religion most of my life but for a long time it was purely academic. I was an atheist after I left Islam and remained as such for quite a while. I would debate people about the existence...

    What would you like to share about your religion/worldview?

    Howdy! Being a cat I am ever curious. What do you want to share about your religion? What do you wish people would ask you about your religion? Are there any assumptions made that drive you nuts? What about common misconceptions you would like to correct? I think I would like to share that...

    Meaning In Fictional and "Real" Religion

    Howdy folks. This was inspired by the post Fictional Religions so you guys should check that out I suppose. I was thinking about fictional religions and the thought I kept coming back to is that whether an idea appears in what we might call fiction vs what we might call scripture is...

    Evidence That Jesus Was Plagiarized From Earlier Gods

    Jesus Christ Byzantine Portrait c. 7th-11th A.D Jesus is a mythological character derived from many different gods way before he came to be. let's take a look at a couple of deities that look very similar to him and have done miracles very similar to his as well. Yes, there are many more...

    CHRISTIANS ONLY: Trinitarian Christianity - Monotheistic or Polytheistic?

    I am confident in saying that Christians view themselves as monotheistic. Whether they are Unitarian or trinitarian Christians, all Christians see themselves with the belief of one God. Trinitarians, which make up the vast majority of Christianity, see God in three forms: The Father, The Son and...

    The Obvious Facts Nobody Else Outside Your Faith Seems to Understand

    When I talk to Christians they seem to have much of the same talking points, that is apologetics. If God exists why is there evil? To allow free will. I then argue from that point that there is no free will in Heaven, if there is no evil in Heaven. I digress. Most Christians seem to be equipped...
