This MyLot religious page is for anybody that has a topic that is about religion. The discussions can also be negative towards religion. I know that is hard for some of you all to understand, but not everyone excepts your deity or holy book as truth. Some have religious question, were else to go than to the MyLot religious page. To often people parade around their beliefs as an universal truth, and if someone dare to question this universal truth, how dare them!

The people that think that way are ignorants that were raised to believe in one thing only and never quetion it. There are many people like that around the globe, so naturally they will be on mylot as well... If they think that this section belongs to them, let them think that way. After all, the rest of us knows better than that.

If I wanted to learn about religion I wouldn't be going to My Lot. If I wanted to learn about the jewish religion I would talk to a rabbi someone who has studied and could give me the info I was looking for. There are also books you can read and study about. And for the last time I am so sick of saying this especially to you cause you are on all this discussions and always missing the point I am making. I am Catholic and I have respect for all religions. I have never said this page is just for Christians. Stop painting everyone under one brush. I do notice that when people don't agree with you that you have to respond with negativity and really rude remarks. You don't have to believe in my religion but you can still treat me with respect. I get the feeling you love to argue with people. I have no problem talking to anyone about God believers and non-believers. I am sure I will get another hostile response from you. It's okay it is getting to be quite amusing now. You know for someone who doesn't like or believe in God you sure talk about Him a lot.

I am totally agreeing. with you. Even if you don't believe in it, you have to respect it, and rReplying with humiliating comments doesn't add anyone respect.

Here on MyLot you are free to talk about anything you want to talk about, as long as you obey the rules. At no point have I violated any rules. I cannot figure out why you think that I wrote this discussion about you. Have you heard the song by Carly Simon "Your so vain" you know, your so vain you probably thought that this song is about you. I am sure you can figure out where I am going with that. I do not love arguing with people, but someone has to do it. What fun would it be if we all agreed with each other. I talk about God because I can, it is a hobby of mine. I spend much more time on the political page than I do on the religious page. At one time I rarely came on the religious page, but I thought about something, government can take your life but religion can take your soul.

The interest says religion , not Christianity!It is sad that some Christians can't understand non Christians need to question. But with that said I have posted many a question about Christianity and have learned a lot.I usually begin a post with Christians I need you help... and I get the answers I needed!

I would think if someone posted a discussion whether positive or negative, they would want the people on Mylot to participate. It should also be understood that not everyone will agree. If you have religious questions, it's fine to ask the people on Mylot for answers. Probably most every religion is represented here. Of course you must realize that we are giving you our opinions. If you really want a true understand of a religion, you should go to that religion's scriptures. You may question a religion, but it's hard to believe you really want answers if you won't go to the scriptures and study them. You come across as dishonest and not someone who is truly searching for answers.

I hope everyone feels free to voice their opinion whether here or anywhere else in their daily lives, but that works both ways. If you get to have an opinion and voice your opinion, so do I, whether you agree with me or not. Is it wrong for someone to share what they believe is the truth and what they believe could be of benefit to the hearer? No one can force you to believe as they do, but what would you think if someone knew something that could be helpful to you and refused to share it with you? Let everyone have their say, and then take it or leave it as your heart dictates. That doesn't mean any of us will stop trying to get through to you or any others who believe differently; but in the end, you decide whether or not you'll accept what we've shared with you.

As you say, it is a religion discussion forum page and there are many religions, so any religious topic can be discussed. In any discussion one can agree or disagree. I am a Christian and I believe the Bible is the only word of God. Others are free to agree or dis agree with me. When I post a topic, I welcome all opinions. Freedom of choice is what life is all about. Let God be the one to judge our choices! Joshua 24:15 (New International Version) 15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

I agree with you. It says religion, doesn't specify which. I also think that it is important no matter what your beliefs, for tolerance and education. I may not agree with your beliefs, but I will still hear them and give them thought. Ignorance breeds fear.

Well i know that this Place is for all religious question for a person to ask and to answer. personally all the answers i have posted here never focused on one religion they always were made in a much broader sense as for you second point. I do see that there are very few ANTI religious questions out here . Although i do have a few in the back of my mind i will spill them out somtime later..

Wow I am so glad you said that since you obviously dont believe it, I started a topic and you came on to yell at me for posting too many questions, cause your topics were not on the top page, now you have a problem with people talking about Christianity, wow. It says religion it does not say, only the religion that gewcew wants to hear about.
