    What do you find intriguing or nice about other religions?


    I like the way they all show reverence to God's Love.

    I agree, Heyo; Admirable, and I especially admire the JW's steadfastness and determination to adhere to their professed values, whatever the cost.
    I also like the collectivist Hutterites' working communism, and the Jains' respect for life.

    I like that Quran says:

    …The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah …believe in Allah and His messengers. ….
    Surat An-Nisā' 4:171
    Surah An-Nisa [4:171]

    Have you been following the Hutterite Covid crisis? There are lots of colonies where I live. The farm I grew up on was bought by a colony, along with about 4 neighbour farms. The communal part is really hurting them with regard to Covid. With most people, we're already separated most of the time. But those guys are incredibly used to working side by side. I hope they figure it out, or they'll suffer loss of elders, who are also the leaders.

    Do all religions show reverence to God's Love?
    Aside from what their scriptures say, how can they know that God is Loving?
    What has God done to show He is Loving, or are we just supposed to believe that?

    You should have FAITH and be certain with us. God loves us and must remain passive at all cost, the truth. I can help you, but you must save yourself by unleashing your pleasure lion.

    Why must God remain passive while people suffer?
    Why should we believe that God loves us, just because it says that in scriptures?
    How do you KNOW that is the truth, or do you just BELIEVE it?
    Or maybe you FEEL God's love? Sorry, not good enough because feelings are not evidence of anything.
    I have no idea what you mean by a pleasure lion.

    Not all religions are God based.

    A religion is a belief or set of beliefs that manifests an ethic in it's adherents. These need not be dictated by a divine lawgiver. They may be perceived as inherent in nature, or evidenced by research, or socially beneficial, or simply appealing to conscience.

    The usual example of an atheistic religion is Buddhism. While many Buddhists have come up with various theological menageries over the centuries, Buddha himself was uninterested in theology.

    In order to end their suffering. To kill for happiness is the definition of sadistic, and inner peace is the only way to be happy.

    To have faith without reasoning, but reason itself remains.

    Faith is absolute trust, if I believe, and I do, I would posses the knowledge of the one true God, who is before me.

    Faith is to knowledge, as fire is to light, and I wouldnt need evidence to be religous.

    Not being angry and being happy is like uncaging a lion.
