    What's the difference between quoting Bible versesand discussing spirituality? I maintain that they are not related in the slightest.

    Technically I think you are right as they are really not the same but I suppose they can compliment each other. The sad thing in this forum is that it is often the end all beat all arguement some folks use because they are afraid to challenge anything that has been taught to them.

    The Bible is merely a part of spirituality as Joe pointed out.

    Perhaps this is why the religions are so horribly confusing 😞

    good point
    the bible is but one book written for spiritual purposes
    there are other ancient text written in hebrew
    not to mention all the egyptian texts
    it seems to me holy writings are a part of all cultures and they seem to convey a similar message theme

    I agree with this. Ultimately there is only one religion or spirituality and that is the one that gives us our personal relationship with God.

    Which 'god' are you referring to, CE? You're obviously a Christian based on your posts in other threads. Do you have anything other than subjective experience to prove that this 'god' exists? Or, indeed, that we are s/he/it's creation?

    This answer is about as close to evidence as you're going to get without searching for any.

    When the Polio virus was plaguing America, did the scientists not bother to look for a cure based on the lack of evidence? Peoples separation from God in many ways has been the plague of this world.

    Evidence has to be sought after in order to be found.
