on your first one is the pratice of the other.
on your third point im pleased you were set free, i can only guess as the meaning of your freedom comes from not the letters in bible. A strange term . ...[text shortened]... ve and will continue with our without religion. it maybe letters in a book but what good letters
I agree with you. I am not Jesus. Judgement does not belong to me.
I don't have a problem with people giving or receiving presents. I think the attitude with which one give and receive makes all the difference. Where a loving attitude is present, I believe God is present.
Words are made up by letters. People interprute words in the way that suites them, also words in the Bible. And if you are only interested in staying with the literal meaning of the words in the Bible and never discover the love of Jesus, many wicked things can be justified because the Bible tells you so.😠
Burning of people were permitted in the name of religion, if it was only suspected the person could have been a witch. I live in a country where apartheid was justified out of the Bible not so long ago.
I also believe God has created in variety. I am very thankful I could choose to find my salvation in Jesus teachings. I don't know what is the next person's salvation.
The wrongs of this world will continue as long as people choose not to agree to disagree in love.
