In this world of numerous faiths, how should one see other religion as. We should respect beliefs and faiths of others or not? i have seen people being abusive and using harsh words against other faiths. Are we still fighting oveer faiths and still say we are modern. Why is that respect and disrespect arise whenever you look at a religous posting on the net. You see people fighting over it abusing each others faith counting short comings of others faith. Everyone feels ones own faith is the best but does that means cause disrespect to others? We all know we belong to one creator and HE is the one to decide the right and wrong. So why cant we leave that to HIM and live a carefree life and keep our faith to our own selves and respect people on their Identity and not by their faith. In the 21st century do we have a right to choose what we think is right or still see that blindly. Wake up guys its high time. What you say about this

I think that my faith best suits me and other peoples works for them. They are free to worship and what ever how ever they choose. If you don't have anything nice to say then you aren't being a good stewardest of your faith. That's just what I think.

I think matters of faith are a personal choice. Just because I believe in God, and somebody else believes in a God of a different name, doesn't make a difference...they still believe in a higher power than themselves. I try to respect others religions just as I do my own. If a person is disrespectful of anothers religion, then that doesn't say much about what they've learned about the love of God and how He expects us to treat others. Maybe they don't believe in the same God, but at least they believe!

A light has seven colors so are the different names attached to the Almighty. No Matter what name they call HIM he is the ONe and the only ONE. Respect and Faith

As per Islamic belief, From the beginning of the mankind onwards God gave directions to believe through thousands of prophets, Who ever follow them in the right way is a true believer. Later many people diverted from those paths and created their own religion. Anyway we should respect all religious people, and should not abuse each other.
