    Brother. Dont just say "Barnabas". Or dont just say "The Barnabas". Because there is nothing called "The Barnabas". I am only telling you so that you will consider this. No problem if you dont wish to admit something. No problem.

    I was referring to the "Epistle of Barnabas", not the "Gospel of Barnabas" which you are referring to. The prior was in the canon.

    Cheers.

    How do you keep up with all that? I have one religion and it takes a lot of my time. How can you focus on that much all at once? your head must be spinning.

    I was also refering to the epistle of barnabas.

    Why Wasn't the Epistle of Barnabas Canonized as a Part of Holy Scripture? | OrthodoxChristianity.net

    Well then you are absolutely wrong, because it was in the Canon. Maybe you are not aware.

    Oh Im sorry. This habit of mine is appalling. Where I am from we have this habit of always calling people with brother, sister, aunt, uncle, friend, mate, something. So this happens quite often. -_-

    God did want people to have different religions and that is why there are different religions.
    God is okay with people having different religions, at least for now.

    Baha'is believe that God wants all the religions to unite but that won't happen until the distant future.
    Until then the Bahai goal is for all the religions to associate and learn to get along in a spirit of harmony and unity.

    “That which the Lord hath ordained as the sovereign remedy and mightiest instrument for the healing of all the world is the union of all its peoples in one universal Cause, one common Faith. This can in no wise be achieved except through the power of a skilled, an all-powerful and inspired Physician. This, verily, is the truth, and all else naught but error.”
    The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 91

    That is what Baha'is believe, and that is why we say we believe in all the different religions.

    No, we do not deny anything in the Bible. We just (a) interpret some of the Bible differently than Christians and (b) we do not interpret everything literally.

    All Christians do not interpret all of the Bible literally either but they are still Bible-believing Christians.

    What many liberal theologians believe about Jesus' death

    Not all Christians believe in the Trinity either but they are still Bible-believing Christians.

    My head spins with just one religion too, which is why I don't even try to keep up on the others. ;)
    I only know enough about other religions to be dangerous.

    it's not hard because:

    What the religions share of belief: the religions believe in one God who is the creator of the universe/universes, prophets or holy souls of God, prayers to God, some form of the ten commandments, Heaven/hell, that the most important is to serve God and loving each other

    And i believe that no religion is the only truth. but that truth is found in most religions

    you wrote:

    at least for now" =
    i diagree strongly with "at least for now" part


    "Until then the Bahai goal is for all the religions to associate and learn to get along in a spirit of harmony and unity" = This I agree with. God wants all religions to live in peace.
