Thats a bit of a loaded question. But let me answer.
I believe God loves Muslims if they don't convert to Christianity. More simply, I believe God loves everyone, including you.
Then what is the purpose of any religion, if man doesn't get a say, yet want to dictate for what you are to believe?

BTW - this would Self.

It is when people stray from the awesomeness of God's Love that begins the injustice you speak of, in the minds and hearts, of those who believe, and are led astray, not so much by others, but their own passions, and desires.
We all must bear those who fault us, whether true or not, as the focus on God's Love gives peace.
Self - no religion required.

If a god gave me free will, it should be free will from the get-go forever more.
For a god to say "Wait a minute now, I gave you free will, but then I set some commandments for you to follow, and because you didn't follow them, you will now have to burn in hell," is the stuff written by theological imbeciles.
June:

I think you are mostly right in your thinking here.

I would differ with the thought on "commandments"(and laws), as I see them, they are more like a mirror, which displays our faults and shortcomings.

Thank you Regina. Sometimes I rely on their statements to be factual. I should know better.
If the Church DID have a plane, it would make economical sense with the amount of traveling they do.
You're welcome!

Do not ever, never, never, ever, never, and never again believe one word that comes from their mouths.

Not one.

Ever.(Especially that 'socci' thing that posts here.)

They have lying down to an art form. It's the only way they can justify their rejection of Christ's church, so they adhere to no boundaries of decency.

What you believe is irrelevant. Christian theology states from the get-go that all who wish to be saved MUST believe in Jesus, as it's the only way to heaven ... which would be a surprise to faithful Jews, as their theology indicates that Jews don't go to heaven.
June:

But you asked me what I believed? Why would you ask, if you call it irrelevent?

I don't need to believe in a generalized christian theology, or what other's believe(though I listen and discern for myself) as belief is based on experience and reason. I have my own experiences and reasoning.

Rather I believe in Jesus Christ. And my faith in Him as well. And thank you for letting me share this with you.

New Age Spiritual Leader:

Do I really think that men had/have the ability to define God?

If that is what you assume, declare, or ask, then my answer is, "No".

But we certainly can seek to find. And if I seek, then perhaps I have been lost. And if I find, then I am found. For I do not remember before I was born. And I think that makes me a human being.

Not so much fighting as, shall we say, correcting.

Perhaps there wouldn't be so much of it if people would learn to tell the truth for a change.

You misconstrue what an "idol" is.

So - it doesn't mean they worship her. Your ilk reads more into this than is necessary.

Symbolism.
Got that - it's just symbolism of a spiritual intake of Jesus.
Sheez - no wonder you hate. It sounds like you just don't understand.
<quoted text>
Neither do you - as you refuse to accept a good portion of his teachings as well.
You want to make claims about others, I am going to show you where you failed to have a pristine backyard too.
<quoted text>
Neitehr do you. Stop playing the matryr
<quoted text>
I disagree.
Citation please. Then again, you've only heard this, which probably makes it false.
I heard you would rather believe "Paul" than Jesus.
Now that is a fact.
<quoted text>
I disagree. The Pope doesn't interpret any texts in the Bible - he only refers to it and gives his opinion of the text.
<quoted text>
This was true - about 1000 years ago.
You should start living in the 21st C.
<quoted text>
WOW!! Such all-encompassing statements.
Who are you to say what kind of relationship an individual has with Jesus? Shoot, you don't even believe in all of his teachigns yourself.
Don't be a hypocrite.
<quoted text>
Must be close to the same source you get yours from, huh?
Christianity divides.

I appreciate your honesty in your response.

What is your honest response to the subject of this forum?

Thanks for reading my post!

I added much intelligence. You are the one refusing to answer or even post support for the claims you made.

You are starting to act like a Catholic, the ones you seem to despise.

But then there is that toasty issue of hell for others that you ignore that has nothing in common with grace or kindness.

Free will should mean JUST that, and I don't choose to go to hell for not believing in your image of god, or the Muslim's image of a god, or any other god, so I should get a free pass just as do you.

Free ought to be free!

Silly dogmas.
