After all, Christ said, Nobody comes to the Father except thru me, which means all other religions are false, if you take him at his word.
So, do you take Him at His word? This is, according to the site owner, a Pro-Christian site: "
My position stands. "The so-called book of Mormon is false gospel, ie, fiction. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity or the Word of God.
Look up false prophets in KJV.
Must be a flaw (among many flaws) in my up-bringing."
I take Him at His word. I believe nobody can come to the Father except through Christ.
I also believe that anyone, whether Mormon, Buddhist or Jewish, who believes differently and politely offers to explain why is not adequate reason to become offended, nor does their doing so constitute a hate crime.
To my mind, tattling to Daddy is more than a little inappropriate in this case.
I have been perfectly polite to you, and to the extent of my ability to everybody else I’ve ever spoken to on this forum.
I believe that American Christians who believe their own religion to be true do not have a moral right to be offended by people of other religions who believe the same about their own faiths and express that belief politely. To my mind, this smacks waaaay to much of the whole Muslim blasphemy thing.
Personally, I believe Christ could have had a rational and polite conversation with a Hindu or Buddhist monk, or with a pagan Greek priest. Possibly he did. He would not have budged from his position that they were in error, but he wouldn’t have tried to silence them.
The Apostle Paul in Athens calmly discussed Greek religion with his listeners, and even drew analogies from it to illustrate the truth of Christianity. He recognized there were truths even in pagan religion, though obscured by a whole bunch of lies.
BTW, I agree with Jim that the Book of Mormon is false doctrine.
I just disagree with you about how we should react to those who believe in false doctrines.
