This is exactly how I feel. Unfortunately, I'm smack in the "bible belt", and there is only one religion out here...Christianity.
I have trouble accepting the Jesus story as it is told in the New Testament. I would like to go to church, but if I cannot accept Jesus as the Son of
God, complete with all the miracles and the raising from the dead, etc., then it's a little hard to sit through the sermons, because I don't believe
in the basic premise, which separates Christianity from Islam and Judaism.
Also, the original thought of this thread is interesting. I'm a little tired of people of one religion demonizing another. I would like to know how
the other Abrahamic religions think, and what is in their holy books. It's a good thread if you want to know which posters have an agenda and want
to slam other religions while holding theirs up as the "true" one.
If a road leads you to God, and you live a good life because of it, it is true. If you choose to pervert that road and take a shortcut which causes
you to hurt others, it is false. There is more than one way to God, as well as to hell.
