Bashing in the name of Religion

I really don’t understand the Christian need to bash other religions.

Believe in your religion.  Know doctrine.  Don’t worry about what you don’t know about other religions.

In all my experiences, no one, other than the person who believes and practices their own religion, KNOWS that religion.

The worst thing you can do, is tell me what I believe.  No one knows what I believe more than I do.

If you want to know about what I believe, ask me.  No one else can tell you.

Just as I wouldn’t go ask a baker how to change the oil, in my car, I would not go to a particular leader, of any church, and ask about another church.

Its  not insulting to my religion.. its insulting to my intelligence.

    I have to say I have noticed this same trend in different churches I have visited.
    I recall one in particular that left a distinct distaste in my mouth.
    It was surprising how much the other faiths and churches we slammed.
    It was enough that I never went back. I felt that if you are so negative about others and their thoughts how could you accept mine.

    Thank you for having courage enough to express your thoughts and feelings.

    To use a very dear quote to me by Edith Wharton
    “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

    I agree and disagree. There are multiple religions, we know this, and many followers of each. Do I think it is right for the Christian religion to bash others? Absolutely not. In fact, those Christians that do are in fact in fault even in their own religion where we are taught to love those around us no matter what. Bashing is inacceptable. Yet, I believe the bashing is derived from Christians trying to relay the message and our belief that the Christian Religion is indeed the universal religion and is proved over and over again in the Bible.

    God Bless
