Christians Embrace All Religions

What is a Christian? Is a Christian someone who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ, and loves, forgives, and embraces all people? Or is a Christian someone who follows an organization, and only believes what is written in The Bible? Should we not embrace all religions, for their belief in a GOD?

When the Jesuit missionaries first preached the Gospel to the Lakota hundreds of years ago, they pointed to the many similarities between their religion and ours. They used that as a starting point to then lead them away from some of their other "pagan" beliefs and into faith in Jesus Christ. This proved far more successful than missionaries who tried to "westernize" the Lakota. We should respect other religions while preaching the Truth.
---Greyrider on 2/1/08

All people are GOD's Creation, but, NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE GOD'S PEOPLE. Because not ALL people follow GOD. The Children of GOD are those who are "adopted" into GOD's Family by REPENTING OF SIN and receiving YAHUSHUA, His Son, as Personal Lord and Saviour.
---Gordon on 2/1/08

No, True Followers of GOD (YAHUVEH) should NEVER embrace ALL RELIGIONS, for the "Gods" of the other religions are FALSE GODS. There is only ONE TRUE GOD (YAHUVEH) and the other religions are not embracing Him! They would have to go through accepting YAHUSHUA (a/k/a Jesus Christ) FIRST. YAHUSHUA said in John 14:6 "I (YAHUSHUA) Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father (YAHUVEH) but by Me." NO ROOM for Krishna, Buddha, Rev. Moon, Allah, etc.
---Gordon on 2/1/08

Christians believe in Jesus Christ and His teachings and doctrine...only! We can respect other religions but we are not to accept their teachings and doctrines,especially, if they teach aginst Jesus Christ teachings and doctrines. Christians are sold out to Jesus...only! Can't mix and match.We are to accept the Father,Son and Holy Ghost. All three are as One.Baptism etc....
---Robyn on 1/30/08

No, Christians embrace only Christ and his Commands, and not any other false religions nor idols of man.

The comparison included knowing God (Thomas) and believing in God (John). Other writers have made similar observation. She explained her view on what we have come to know as the expression *A DOUBTING THOMAS.* John is the source of this expression, which was intentional in her opinion. Nonetheless, the Gospel of John, even with it heavy emphasis on believing in God, is still a MYSTICAL book, as you may know from your background. The word *KNOW* appears several times therein and is

The subject in question might be best to be discussed on the "Is The Soul Immortal" blog, because I think "who we are", has a connection to the soul being immortal or not. Or if you would like to discuss it here it would be OK with me. Ill check this blog Sunday afternoon to see where you would like to continue this discussion at. Till then God bless
---Billy on 1/26/07

Billy, God bless you my brother! For most of my life I have been asking this question. I just posted a message on the Trinity blog on this same question. Like you, Peter and several others, I can write day and night on this question. It is a question that brings EVERYONE closer to God and it transforms lives! Peace Profound.
---I_AM_I on 1/26/07

[a] Bill

YOU WROTE: Saying "I AM" is believing you are something when your nothing.

Is there really nothing (i,e., NO THING)? Isn*t nothing really something? Does Scripture say we come from nothing or something? As Peter correctly stated, first we are NO WHERE and then we are NOW HERE. The letters are the same; just different spacing. Billy, neither you nor any one else can ever describe yourself without the letter *I*. This is what Peter was getting at.
---I_AM_I on 1/26/07

[b] Billy

How are we beast, keeping in mind that this is one theory of human nature? I agree that the prideful man must be tamed, and God does that taming. However, I think you are misunderstanding one of the meanings behind this concept or idea. It is beyond pride. In fact, its objective is to overcome the ego in us! Let us discuss this further.
---I_AM_I on 1/26/07


Man shouldnt think of himself more highly than he ought to think, so I would like to ask a question that I am I has asked.

Who am I?

So, getting to the very marrow of our being, to know who we are is the greates step to knowing our purpose in this life. "Man, know thyself". I would have to say that I know who I am.
---Billy on 1/25/07


If you find false prophet among you, EXPOSE him or her! I hope you know the difference between I AM THAT I AM; I AM; AND I AM I. The letters G.O.D. symbolize what? The letters A.L.L.A.H. symbolize what? The letters J.E.H.O.V.A.H. symbolize what? All these represent a concept or an idea! Is the name used to symbolize this concept more important than its application to our lives?
---I_AM_I on 1/25/07


I could care less what people call this concept! I am more interested in its application in our lives. People have fought wars over what to call this concept, as if the name will change the concept. For example, here is a glass with water to the half way mark. (i)You may look at the glass with water as half empty and (ii) I may look at the same glass with water as half full. Has the glass with water (i.e., the concept) changed? NO!
---I_AM_I on 1/25/07


However, we see it (the concept) differently. Let us assume the glass with water is immortal, invisible, all-powerful, all-knowing and universal. If I still call it half full and you still call it half empty, will it change depending on the name we call it? NO! Shouldn*t we get to know this immortal and universal concept (e.g., the glass with water) so that we can have a relationship with it? Admittedly, in developing a relationship

Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
---Billy on 1/25/07


with this concept we must call it something. However, the relationship with this concept is more important than the name attributed to it! This is the same thing with your name (T.r.a.c.y). Instead of calling you a human being or person (e.g., hey person, come here!), your parents named you Tracy (which represent a concept of a human being). The world would be crazy if our parents called us human beings. Therefore, they gave us names.
---I_AM_I on 1/25/07


Saying "I AM" is believing you are something when your nothing. Man is a beast, and this is the truth of the matter. The sooner we get "only with Gods help" this prideful man under our feet, the sooner the sons of God will be manifested. Please take no offence in what I say, I love all of Gods children, I just dont believe what ive just read. God bless
---Billy on 1/25/07


Do you think the name your parents gave you is more important than them developing a relationship with you? They can change your name, right? You may even change your name later in life, as some people do, right? Tracy, naming a concept is indeed important (that is why Moses wanted to know what name to call the burning bushes). However, the relationship is more important than the assigned name! Do not get sidetrack by a name you do not understand!

---I_AM_I on 1/25/07

All I am saying that when Biblical discussions are at hand and you refer to yourself as I am, we all know who the Bible refered to we it talks about (I am) concerns me. It is not an attack on anyones character but in this day and time of false phrophets it raises a red flag. I am trying to be encouraging in anything I type so don't take it negatively. I have nothing but love for others.
---Tracy on 1/25/07

Tracy- Would you not say "I AM", or would you say "I AM NOT"? Why would you question the existence of others and yourself? You probably say "I AM" all the time like most people, but you will add something like "I AM going to the store". When you say "I AM" and then cease to speak, it is a powerfull statement of truth because nothing can change that not even "death". PEACE.

Eternal damnation is a reference to being seperated from Christ forever. As far as hell goes the Bible explains there is such a place. Using the words to describe yourself as I am is certainly a way to make Christians concerned about your teachings and thoughts.
---Tracy on 1/24/07

Tracy, show me eternal damnation in the Bible. Be careful how you translate the words ETERNAL and DAMNATION. These are two of many poorly translated words in Scripture. They have caused so many millions or billions of people to think God*s beautiful children will be tormented in some INVENTED hellhole burning with fire. There is no such place!
---I_AM_I on 1/24/07

Jesus said: I am the way, the truth and the light and no one comes to the Father except through me. We should pray for the people lost in in religions that invite eternal damnation. We love the person and not judge what they believe because the Bible has already judged them.We show them the light and pray they find their way.

2/Emcee, you find it heretical to PROVE ALL THINGS (1 Thess. 5:21). What was Jesus* great commandment? Love God with heart, MIND, soul and strength! How can we love God with our mind?

So long as I have breath and consciousness in me, I will QUESTION you and everyone who want me to surrender my mind to your belief paradigm!!!

3/Emcee, I put my trust in God and not in those who want to tell me how to communicate with God. I trust the wisdom or intelligence (GOD) that created me and not the wisdom or intelligence of those whom you follow. When I trust the wisdom or intelligence that created me, I TRUST MYSELF! This is what has been called micro and macro or as above, so below. In biblical terms, the Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU (Luke 17:21).

4/Emcee, you really have to learn to trust yourself. Do you not share in the SAME intelligence as everyone else? Isn*t there ONE INTELLIGENCE behind the universe?

5/Emcee, finally, I knew you would not join us under the trinity blog!!! You cannot defend this MAN-MADE doctrine. There is absolutely nothing mysterious about God manifesting in triune!

Thanks for the story on Mark Twain. Unlike Twain, God is at the center of my life. There are those who believe in God and there are those who KNOW God. I count myself as one who KNOWS God.

YOU WROTE: The Holy Scriptures themselves were written in the Middle East in ancient Hebrew from the 36th century B.C., and were used since the time of Moses in 1525 B.C. The actual Temple Scriptures were collected from around the Mediterranean, from Palestine, and the Middle East.

When will you stop making statements that reveal your lack of knowledge on history? First, there was no Middle East in the 36th century B.C.
---I_AM_I on 1/21/07


In fact, there was no Middle East during Jesus* time and many centuries thereafter. Go research history! Second, the Bible contradicts your time of 1525 B.C. for Moses. Moreover, Egyptian history contradicts a time period of 1525 B.C., assuming there was a Moses. You should stick to biblical history. Frequently when believers or Christians leave biblical history for historical proofs, they will run into CONTRADICTIONS! History does not correlate with biblical history in many places.

You are better off reading the Bible as a story that is more mythical and spiritual than literal and historical. When I read the Bible as spiritual and mythical, I can set aside many of the historical contradictions. I can set aside the fact that several of the characters cannot be readily found in history. I focus on the spiritual messages surrounding these characters rather than whether the characters actually existed.

Debate is expository, thus those who oppose debate fear exposure. Emotion/heart matters are essential, but so is the MIND. One can say "I believe in my heart that the ocean does not exist" and when a big wave knocks them down FEEL HURT, like they have been given a black eye.

The Bible is indeed an impressive collection of books. The issue is who determined what books to include in and exclude from the Bible. Another issue is whether all the books, if any at all, are the inerrant and inspired word of God. Who exactly did God inspire? For example, you and I were discussing Moses and the Torah on the Symbolic or Literal Bible blog. You pointed out, and I agree, that there are different sources that contributed to Genesis and other parts of the Bible.
---I_AM_I on 1/18/07


Therefore, if Moses is not the only author of the Torah, if at all, and the Torah and other parts of the OT were written by the four UNKNOWN authors and edited by a redactor, then how can we be 100% sure God inspired these five people? Who made the determination that God inspired these unknown authors? Similarly, who made the determination that God inspired the books that made it into the NT and not the ones others consider *anti-clerical,* to use your term?
---I_AM_I on 1/18/07


When some of these *anti-clerical* books were being used by the early church, were they considered inspired then? Also, there are several *anti-clerical* books that are quoted from in Scripture. Are the parts quoted from inspired by God, since the entire Bible is the inspired word of God? I can go on, but I better stop here, because THIS THING IS A MESS! Thank God we were all given the ability to communicate with God with our heart, mind, soul, spirit, etc.

Eloy, I read the KJV and other translations. I would read your translations also. However, I would get a RED PEN while reading to make CORRECTIONS, because you will translate the same way as your fellow politically motivated and corrupted translators! I have read your posts to see your BIASES! Further, have you read Deut 22? If yes, please share your findings with this blog and tell us if Deut 22 sounds like the LOVING Jesus of the NT.

I AM I, I have more than one Bible, and I also translate the Holy Scripture. But the so-called bibles you are reading are not Holy, but instead are uninspired works which originated from man's imagination and not from God's mouth. I count all uninspired works, especially those which dissemble themselves and try to propose themselves as holy, as dung; and they who gather these pseudo-gospels to themselves will find themselves greatly lost in the wilderness who do trust in them most.

I AM I- I haver read all the books of Elaine Pagals and many others. The Gospel Of Thomas is basically Gnostic, and anti-clerical, that is why the RCC saw it as threatening. I haver read all the Nag Hammadi, the gnostic Gospels, the Essenic Dead see scrolls, and other 'lost books of the Bible. To be honest, little of any of these books compare with the Bible. Sheperd of Hermas comes close, as does the Gospil of Philip, but little else, in my opinion.
