"we need not think alike to love alike" - Francis Dávid
Do you think your religious beliefs are correct and that other religious beliefs are wrong?
Or do you see all such beliefs as being equally valid?
I do but it doesn't offend me if someone thinks the same about my beliefs, that's a part of life, different people will hold different opinions
But I do feel considerable social pressure to keep this from others, to not say this in public
But yes, I freely admit that I believe I am right and that those with different opinions are wrong
But that doesn't mean I think any less of those who hold different beliefs to me
And it doesn't mean that I don't tolerate and respect those who hold different beliefs
And yes, people can hold correct beliefs alongside incorrect beliefs so people can be part right whilst also being part wrong
That's a rare attitude for a Christian to have. Most of the Christians on these forums come at you with everything they got to convince everyone else that their non-Christian beliefs are WRONG.
But as to your poll, mine will have to be a rather unique reply. I cannot honestly answer with a blanket YES or NO if other's beliefs are "right" or "wrong" based upon my own beliefs.
Now while I have no choice but to believe in my spiritual beliefs, as I will explain shortly, I let it slide if the overall intent of what they believe in is spiritually valid, minus the cloak of their respective mythology/religion.
As to your other thoughts, I realized as a child that practically everyone was spiritually clueless and completely content being that way. For having an experience with death and subsequently having my soul leave my body, meet God, and had a great amount of spiritual matters explained to me before being returned to life. And it didn't occur to me that I was returned to life any different from others until I went to school. There I was SHOCKED to discover that most of the other kids did not have the spiritual "gifts" or understands that I had. I could not understand that.
Especially since I could read their souls, so they surely had one, but they could not use it's abilities like I could. I just could not figure that one out at the time. Then after one bad experience when I let it slip that I knew something a couple of boys were planning to do to a girl, and seeing the look of FEAR in their eyes because I knew what I wasn't suppose to know, I quickly learned to keep my spiritual "gifts" and understands to myself. Knowing they were mostly spiritually broken for some reason and it would only bring FEAR, ridicule, or harm to myself.
And I have kept it all a secret to anyone I have ever met in person. Only expressing them in "anonymously" on these Internet forums. Mostly in trying to persuade others to look beyond their respective limited mythology/religion that binds their minds to this PHYSICAL realm/world.
