Religious Tolerance in…Religions

Hello, everyone. I'm the creator of the Religion Group here on CR and I had created my group with the hopes of encouraging a peaceful co-existence between the bickering religious groups on Crunchy Roll. There's a major war going on between antireligious and religious zealots of many denominations and descriptions. While people are free to bicker as they please, I would like to discourage this behavior.

So, I decided to create a thread on the public forum. This thread is to post citations from religious cannons and speeches that encourage religious tolerance.


Qur’an

“For each [religious following] there is a prayer…wherever you may be, Allah will bring you forth…” 2:148

Tanakh

Micah 4:5 “All the nations may walk in the name of their gods…” Micah 4:5


Reading that more in context he’s basically prophesying that there would be a time of peace and prosperity where religions co-exist without fighting or arguing. Essentially Micah says, “They will worship their gods, we’ll worship ours.” So, it’s not encouraging a melting pot of religion, but perhaps it is encouraging of a salad bowel? You can read and judge for yourself.

N.T

In the book of Luke (9:52-56) we find a group of people that refuse Jesus Christ. His disciples tell him toe punish the villagers but Jesus refuses. He simply turns and goes to another place where is welcomed. This story is retold in some of the other synoptic gospels.

No surprise, the book of Roman’s is also a good place for this kind of thing. Roman’s 14 is the particularly powerful one.

“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. One man’s faith allows him to eat everything, but another man whose faith is weak eats only vegetables. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not.”

Basically being a Christian believer benefits us but that doesn’t make us better than anyone else. We’re still supposed to peacefully coincide without judging or bickering. It goes on to say:


“…Who are you to judge somebody else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls.”

Which obviously means that he’s measured by his own morality. To me, though some “conservative” Christians might argue, this is basically saying that God is going to judge us based on our attempt to serve goodness. So, a Muslim isn’t condemned for bowing to Allah. He’s rewarded because this person feels that doing so is a good thing.

1st Corinthians 10:26 “If and unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conciseness.”

On verse 32 of the same chapter I found two translations. I don’t currently know what the language boundary is or what caused this-but I may pursue and try to find out. The first translation was:

“…Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks, or church of God.”

The second was:

“Do not cause anyone to stumble whether they be Jew or Gentile.”



Here is the link to my religious tolerance group as well as some other related groups here on Crunchy Roll.

Buddhism

Bible Study

Islam and Muslims

Well, I think that depends on which sect of Christianity-and even then, there’s always the individual argument. I’m a Christian and I believe that God will reward us for attempting to do what we feel is right regardless of our religious beliefs. I can also support this biblically, though not 100% conclusively.

Whatever the case, please refrain from posts that are simply going to exacerbate things. The whole idea is to kind of bring about peace and education, and if you’re not trying to do this your post simply doesn’t belong in this thread-because, that’s not what this thread is for.

Besides, it’s actually possible to believe other religions are condemning paths while still exorcising religious tolerance.

Sikhism, Budhism, Hinduism, Shinto, Wicca, Scientology…these are just a handful of major religions that do NOT preach that you go to hell for not believing.

personally, i feel that a war would start in here instead -.-

but seriously, i agree with krn. most of the christians that i meet tell me that.
its not an impression provided. but more of its what they say. -.-
and i believe that it is NOT stated in the bible for nuts.

As a Christian I’ll tell you…most Christians are ignorant, narrow minded, and don’t really know a lot about their own religion. Now, mind you, they’re not really “bad people,” in my opinion. They want to do what is right. It just so happens that their warped version of Christian morality is actually a cultural prejudice.

Yes, most Christians are going to be like that. But, that’s only because most -people- in general are. Christians are just people. Most people are ignorant/narrow minded. It follows that most Christians would be ignorant/narrow minded.
