I completely understand what you're saying June. Rose is a Christian as you say, but she is a friend and a sweetheart too me regardless of her Faith. I have Topix friends that believe somewhat like you do June, and I call them friends, and the ladies I call sweetheart.
If Rose was a Muslim she would still be a friend and a sweetheart. Would she fit MY image of Heaven? To be honest, probably not. That's why I said I understand what you were saying completely.
I can see why you refer to your religious passion as non-denominational.

But from my way of perceiving, you are still a Christian that believes Muslims should be kept out of your image of heaven ... and that smacks of Catholicism and Protestantism ... no matter how you try to distance your self from the dogmas.

There is something terribly lacking in human nature, and religion makes the problem worse.
There is nothing lacking June. It is a matter of stifling the negative side of what you possess and promoting another side of what you possess, rather than a lack of something.

The problem seems to be more along the lines of a simple fact that we are animals in all physiological respects, and we possess animalistic urges and traits. Add to that mix the fact that we humans attempt to legislate acceptable behavior instead of solving things as other animals do (battle till one gives in or dies), and you have quite the dilemma.

Religion is bunkology. Another word for our new dictionary.

Do you have any new words to add?

So far we have Stuporidity and Edumacated, and of course Theologaster which is ancient, but of great value to society.

Those in religion that killed and still kill others in the name of gods (as heretics or infidels) believed and believe they are being positive.

Humans are ignorant and their is no cure for ignorance, as ignorance can't go beyond itself.

Prove that the carrots in my garden are suffering June. Prove my animals are suffering June. Prove that an amoeba is suffering June. Prove that you are correct in your claim that we live in a world "where suffering of all forms of life exist."

We did not invent the popes...THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DID...... I guess it is better to be MADE OF paper than JUST a figment of someones OVERACTIVE imagination....

A Pope finds no foundation in the Scriptures..NEITHER DOES A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH....

JUST A WISP IN THE HOT AIR OF ROME...

If a creator created humans, it fell WAY short of it's own mark of smarts. It really needs a lot of therapy. If only we could find it we might be able to help it overcome its adversities.

In trying to be WISE, you prove your self to be an idiot.

If you think animals don't feel pain, you don't understand their language.

Absolutely we can include your word! It's a REAL keeper. One of the best.
However, I insist that the word "theologaster" takes center stage, even though it came from Martin Luther.
Will you be content with second place???
:)
the most important thing is that I am included.

Martin Luther used the same bible as did the popes, and without the Catholic bible there would BE no Protestant religion.

You might study that KJV and you might be certain that you are wise and holy for studying it because they suggested you would be wise and holy if you studied it ... but I suggest you are dumb as a bag of hammers.

You ARE included.

And if I believed in bliss in an afterlife, all forms of life including all humans, would be welcome.

I wouldn't settle for less.

Mind you, I'm not too fond of mosquito's or other animals that want to eat on me, but I presume in an afterlife all will be love, so we, as animals, won't have a need to bite, claw, inject with venom and kill in order to survive.

tongue in cheek

Looks like a good lesson to learn. I would bet this also applies to cell phones, tablets, digital cameras, and other devices that use lithium batteries.
You think this may be a reason why the Postal Service will not ship electronic devices that contain lithium batteries any longer?

GPS was placed in its bracket in the windshield and left in the sun. The battery overheated and exploded!

I answered your question about what is the difference between religion and spirituality from my perspective, and you keep repeating the question ... so I ignore you.

Why would St. James tell us to confess our sins to one another? The context of James 5 is to the priests. Who was he talking to? Was he telling the other apostles or everyone?
Did Jesus give the apostles the authority to forgive sins? Yes or no.
Did St. James tell us to confess our sins to one another? Yes or no.
Did St. James NOT realize that the "one another" refers to men who were sinners? Yes or no.
What would be the purpose of Jesus giving authority to forgive sins to men who sin and St. James telling us to confess our sins to one another if it were not for the purpose of being absolved of those sins?
If Jesus DID give the authority to forgive sins to the apostles, and they are MEN who were SINNERS, and St. James says to confess our sins to one another, why do you refuse to do so and insist you only confess your sins to God?
Horse apples!!!!

Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

There are dozens of parallel verses...none of which mentions "sin" nor "sins".....

Who blots out your transgressions and remembers your sins no more????

Per Scripture: Isaiah 43:25
"I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
