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.

    A long history of pogroms and inquisitions from good Christians has that effect.

      Is Hashem a good Christian? According to the Hebrew scriptures, he has had a pogrom against the Jews for centuries upon centuries...

        The very first sentence reads "Jewish heretics (minim, from minuth Hebrew for "heretic") are Jewish individuals..." Heretics are individual Jews that believe certain things. There isn't a single place in that linked article that says that Judaism considers Christianity to be a heresy. All the references to "he" are to Jews.

        Judaism has never attempted to control the beliefs of non-Jews.
        Read the article more completely. It lists 'Jesus as a heretic.

        It is true that Jews do not make the accusation of heresy outside Judaism, but any Jewish converts to Christianity are considered heretics.

          No, Traditional Christianity is predominantly those who believe in a 'Trinitarian God and that Jesus Christ is God incarnate.'

          Cheers!!!

              Oddly accurate, but 'IFins' are meaningless. Something like counting frog hairs.

                Unitarians are closer to Jesus than Trinitarians in their belief of God.

                Trinity doctrine is not clearly taught in the Bible. For example, there is no single verse in the Bible where the third person in the trinity Holy Spirit is called God or worshiped. To the contrary, Jesus made it clearly in Matthew 24:36 that no one knows the hour except "ONLY THE FATHER" Had the third person known the hour, Jesus would not have said "but only the father" that knows the hour in Matthew 24:36.
