Hey there. Your OP really got me thinking. As christians how can we sit there doing our own thing learning about God and not go and learn about all the other religions as well? Let me explain a little. For one to be able to appreciate God and be able to provide good insite into the religion that has stemed out from his teaching we need to go out into the world and experience the other religions and inform ourselves about them in a real way (as in not reading about them or going on what someone has told you). We shouldnt be ignorant to everything else in the world, that would be foolish. But rather, we need to inform our selves to learn more about the dark forces of this world and see for ourselves how they decieve and go about their buisness.
Doing this would then make you stronger in your faith and it would also help you relate and possibly respect the people in this earth more.
But of course this doesnt just apply to just christianity but other religions as well.

That was well said, beautiful, and almost perfectly mirrors my beliefs. Starred and flagged, friend. Personally, I'm a Taoist. It just kinda stuck and made the most sense to me; however, I do not see it as the ONLY path to the Divine. That would be...arrogant. I also have an undying obsession with martial arts and you can find me standing in ma bu for a goddamned hour every day almost. I do Hun Gar kung fu and wing chun, what do you practice?

It may be of some Interest to you that in 1973, I was declared brain dead and was about to be embalmed, but I became conscious of your world again, after being decared brain dead, by doctors for more than 30 minutes!
What my real self experienced, while not aware of your world, was completely different, than what is spoken of, in ignorance by Religions and the Medical communities.
In fact, I found that death is only a human myth...
Today I am involved with the development and manufacture, of Optical Based Computer Interfaces, with what I refer to as The True Mind and have been in this field full time, for the last 15 years now.
These Interfaces are being used, to Interface between the True mind and your world, allowing us to Edit anything of your world, and can be used in many other situations or systems.
It gives one, access to any books or manuals of The True Mind and access to other Universes and worlds!
your Universe so called is only one Universe, of so many it is impossible to count them.
