Alot of people question whos religion is right who do they follow? Will I go to hell if Im wrong? Should I just follow the religion of my parents? The answer is nobody has the fool truth and god tests different people in different ways. He created different paths for different people for various times. Was Bhudda wrong was Jesus wrong was muhhamed wrong? No they werent they were divinley inspired according to circumstance. Rules aren't the path to heaven the path is knowledge, enlightment Nirvana Gnosis what ever you want to call it. Ill use gnosis today. What is it? Well its an internal knowledge an infalliable truth that you can reach through many different means whether its psychedelics or meditation. Providence loves and is merciful towards all so if your religion feels right and works and causes you to do good follow it dont fear hell. Hell is reserved for only the most evil and those that reject gods love. heaven is within you hell is within you the choice is yours. The bible says god is within us all. We just have to embrace him.
No you cant Agnostics accept that they dont know everything and that is never wrong.
The ones who are wrong are those who honestly believe there is nothing greater than they. Who believe all this was an accident that serves no purpose. It is they who are very wrong.
I dont believe in right and wrong as most people see it. Its not as black and white as people think. I believe if what you do leads you to a path of happiness and a path you enjoy your doing right. However if your path does nothing but bring down yourself and others then you've done wrong.
I've never seen any path that is purely negative, if there were such a path I would apply for High Priest. The universe operates according to the laws of Balance, though, and no one and nothing is wholly good or evil.
There is a path for everyone.
You can't prove they are wrong.
I think the proof of something out there is pretty self evident. Also nobody can prove there is nothing out there.
I've personally kicked it with 3/6 of those figures.
So you're siding with Christianity, eh? How about the Qur'an? Is it wrong?
I think theres definite flaws with both religions in particular some of the rules that seem much more man made than god made. For instance the old testament says to kill someone who works on Sunday and how Islam says to kill apostates. I do believe jesus was the son of god however I am open to the possibility that Islam was correct in saying he was a prophet and the messiah claims were made by man. What I notice is that most religions seem to share the same basic story. We were created do good towards your fellow man dont do evil end times etc etc. And I think the basic truth is that there is something much greater than us yet its also within us. I dont think we can ever know the 100 percent truth until after we die but there are key things to learn from all religions. In the end I think the key is to try to do good and be mindful of god but at the same time your not going to hell for jerkin it or not praying at the right time.
Getting back to topic--all religions that I am familair with have some elements of truth, but none have the Whole Truth.
I think there is a hell nearly every religion has a concept of one however I think only the most evil of people go there. And its not a literal lake of fire but merely the complete absence of god and good. Are you saying Ghandi and a guy that proudly kills rapes and eats babys while blasheming with no remorse will go to the same place?
All religions are fucked in some manner
Saying it's self-evident is a cop out and it's certainly not logical. If it were self-evident, everyone would see it and there'd be no doubt. Why? Because it would be self-evident. This is a cop out because it doesn't answer or even try to address my issue.
I never said anyone could prove there is nothing. You cannot prove a negative. It's a logical fallacy to even try. As an example, you cannot prove that the giant spaghetti monster isn't the creator of everything. You have no evidence that he doesn't exist. You have no proof he isn't the divine creator.
You cannot use the bible as proof simply because it says "this is the truth." The historian character in Don Quijote says his story is the absolute truth. We're supposed to believe it too?
and on topic.
I think what he means by "self-evident" is not that it is obvious or in plain view, but rather if you explore your "self", you can find the answers within your "self". I'm sure we all have had the experience of knowing and not knowing. It is silly to say because everybody is not born knowing, or that many people do not know; therefore it cannot be known. It's just like if your "self" lacks eyesight, then you are blind, and you cannot see the light of sunshine, or the presence of the sun globe; then the sun does not exist to you, as far as you are concerned. Does that mean that the sun does not exist? The sun is just as important to a blind man as a man with perfect eyesight, though one is better able to enjoy. That is an example with corporeal occurence. The same principal applies to ethereal occurence.
Is bilal arabic for satan?
Bilal ibn Rabah al-Habashi was the first muezzin(caller for prayer). He was a freed Ethiopian slave.
