Which religion should I convert to?
I am answering this question as a Muslim. I hope I have been objective in my comments about other religions.In evaluating your present religion or choosing another one, there should be some questions to ask regarding not only what you want or expect from a religion but what you believe God would expect from anyone who believes in Him.Obviously, if one believes that a man/woman is born in original sin and needs a savior to die for him to be cleansed from something the first parents did then any other religion would not fulfill this need.Those who do reject this idea would not choose Christianity, at least for that reason. Christianity generally practices the concept of "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God's" which separates the civil from the spiritual, although this has not always been practiced and has allowed the Church or religious leaders to control or interfere with the policies of the state and declared indivduals as heretics for not obeying or threatened them with excommunication or other sanctions. The modern church recognizes the need for the state to act in conformity with ethcal and moral principles and not sideline religion to only the private sphere. Judaism would then be a possible choice, if one accepts that the Jews have received a revelation from God, where He made them the Chosen People and by fulfilling all the requirements of the Covenant and what their scholars have decided is necessary to do that will earn them merit in His sight. Early Jews did not all believe in a resurrection of the body or in a heavenly Hereafter, if I am not mistaken. In Israel, Judaism is the religion of the state and all laws must be in conformity to biblical law and tradition as interpreted by the Chief Rabbi. Old practices of sacrifice by priests are not possible without a restored temple. The practice of Judaism is now divided into Orthodox, Conservative and Reform traditions to cater to different concepts of how it should be practiced today.If one does not believe in a personal God, or in an absolute monotheistic one and the spiritual and moral discipline that those religions offer is sufficient for him, then he might choose Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Taoism or something similar. A goal ofachieving a spiritual state called Nirvana and in Hinduism a belief in reincarnation to achieve a higher state of being.1.
Amear_r2--Now how credible can Muslims be when they believe violence may be used to get infidels to bow before the Islamic god, and that the brave Muslims get 72 virgins if they die as martyrs? Muslims do not seem to understand the idea of unity of mankind and tolerance for other beliefs including nonbelievers. Islam is certitude!
Physicalist, merely because you are utterly consumed with vitriolic hate and demand the sexual violation of Christian and Muslim children, does not give you the moral ascendancy over God that you have repeatedly claimed, nor do your leftist games deny the existence of God, you worthless blasphemer.
Rocmike3 makes no contribution to Yedda. His lies make for rather sick reading. I suggest he try some medication.
