Comparative Religions 101 Guidelines

Welcome to Comp Religions, this is where the sights and sounds of the many world religions come together in a big World's Fair type atmosphere, without those delicious funnel cakes.

World Religions is a theist only type place, but that does not exclude certain religionists who practice non-theistic faiths ala Buddhism. If you are not sure, ask a moderator.

This is not a place where we argue the existence / non-existence of God.

And as usual, the forum rules apply.

  • American evangelicals vs. American religious Jews on Israel

    A Pew research poll has determined that far more American evangelicals believe that God gave Israel to the Jews than American Jews. Even if you only count Jews who believe in God (since obviously all evangelicals believe in God), it's still 27 percentage points higher for evangelicals.

    No agenda here, just found this interesting.

    I see one problem with the study, though. There seems to be ambiguity over whether it's asking if God ever gave Israel to the Jews (from a Christian perspective, undeniably yes) or whether God gave the Jews this land for perpetuity. Many Christians believe that the Jews forfeited their end of the bargain at the time of the exile and that the promise does not hold today, and the study should have been more specific which question was in mind.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

      CP, as someone who has been involved with the Home School movement, would you have a problem with requiring the same "testing" required by Public Schools?

      It seems there should be an easy compromise that would be ok with both sides...

          I've posted about this before:

          The bigger takeaway is that while Evangelical Christians are enamored with Jews Jews don't think any better of them than they do of guys who blow themselves up in their coffee shops.
