    Default Theology Megathread

    Any debate concerning philosophy and world views - whether it be preaching Christianity or vehemently opposing it - belongs here. That way this place isn't inundated with threads concerning the subject.

    I think that if the world had to change to one religion, and I had the choice, I would not make it Judaism, I would make it Buddhism. Why? Because Budhism has had the least wars.

    Buddhism is chilled out is why.

    Christianity also labels buddhism a CULT which speaks volumes on their tolerance.

    well apparently mormons are a cult in fundamentalist christians' eyes, even though mormonism is an offshoot of christianity.

    no but high ranking christian sources have been saying it. a christian college in my area even released a study detailing how buddhism is a cult.

    I don't think the bible is all that bad; it teaches good morals like being kind, but it's really the church that ruins it for me. they completely twist the bible to suit their own needs. I really hate how the roman catholic church really seems to do nothing but bitch about gay marriage and abortion.

    church is what puts me out too. it's there to praise god and teach you about god. now all church has done is thrown away the bible, yet claim it's their backbone. if church used the bible/referred to the bible 50% more and sang fake praise songs 50% less, things would be a whole lot different, for the better i think. as for catholics, things seem hopeless. its almost not even the same as 'christianity' anymore. everything is just so fake nowdays that it kinda scares me.

    Religion can be pretty awesome at times, but only when taken with an open mind. It's the closed minded religious nuts that ruin the entire aspect of it.

    Most of the negative aspects of Christianity come from the Old Testament, so technically they're not actually twisting the bible at all. But by promoting such exclusion goes against the basic principals of the supposed creator of the religion; which isn't anything new and has been happening since shortly after its inception.

    The bottom sounds like store-bought naturalist pseudo-intellectualism.

    I hope its meant to vocalize the feeling among outspoken critics and the confines of society instead.

    That's the tragedy of it though. It upsets me that this cycle of ignorance in the name of a God continues to this day. I would have thought Christianity would have been wiser maybe thinking "But God is LOVING, why do we need to be so exclusive?"

    They fail to question themselves, and by failing to do so, they harm the world around them by preaching ignorance and bleeding hypocrisy.

    If you're referencing the Dinobot quote no that's not what I was pointing to, that's from a Beast Wars episode that almost made me cry.

    but haven't we progressed far enough as a society to be able to free ourselves of insensitive restraints such as those imposed by the bible? Supposedly Christians are supposed to love everyone, but as Mex pointed out, they're incredibly exclusive. Only those within their own faith seem to be saved, and gays are exempt.

    But of course, why focus on just Christianity? Islam does this as well, and I'm sure Judaism does to a certain extent as well. Hinduism has the caste system. I'm sure there are other religions out there who practice these prejudicial concepts, but religion isn't exactly my forte.

    Apparently not, the reason Christianity is the way it is in America is because of the brand that was brought here first.

    I'm well aware, even so called "non-religion" like atheism tends to have rabid close-minded followers, this behavior is in no way exclusive to religion.

    Religion shouldn't be on a societal level at all as far as I'm concerned.

    I love Dinobot T_T

    On a serious note the quote itself is good but the fact it's from beast wars made it special.
