Was reading a post on how the PM speaking about desecration of churches not being part of the "true Islam".
This got me thinking, what on earth is the "true" Islam, or Christianity, or Buddhism, or any other religion for that matter?
I am not a religious scholar, and I freely admit my ignorance, in the hopes that someone will step up and enlighten me. (heheh, religion; enlighten.)
There are certain parts of each religion that most people would consider abhorrent, such as the "true" Islam in the form of Syariah law where they chop off your hand for stealing, or stone you to death for adultery.
Christianity is no better, if you follow the "true" Christianity.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
then stop praying in public.
All I'm saying is, in this day and age, we shouldn't try to base our lives around codes set down some millenia ago.
Feel free to shoot me down.
Peace. and to you Christians, STOP trying to shove your religion down my throat. It's annoying.
