I have my moments, but just to be clear, I wasn't denouncing Baha'i beliefs. I was just responding to comments made on another thread that I took exception to.Beauty mate. Spot on.
Being Christian has nothing to do with Judaism being out of date. It's merely the belief that Jesus fulfills the prophecy of the Messiah.If Judaism is not 'out of date' why be a Christian?
If one believes Jesus is the Messiah, Christianity is part of Judaism and began long before th NT.Judaism is more tried and true? than Christianity.
The unpleasant parts of religion we might witness today (fanaticism, teachings to cause division among people, etc.) is a result of the distortion of the original teachings in time and through us.
Some modern religions had fanaticism and other unpleasant aspects during the founder's lifetime, known to and encouraged by the founder, for example Scientology.
So what you say is not true of all religions.
There aren't billions of Jews, either. But maybe other dimensions apply, such as geographic spread? Then again, Scientology is present in a lot of countries and on all continents. That's why I asked about the criteria.Well, with 5 million or so, Bahaiism is a 'wanna be', 'Jumping Jack'.
Religion may focus on anything but humans will go by their material ways. Religion does not make any significant different. Most of the time it engenders conflicts.
No, conflict within the religion and with other religions as well. Changing the world virtually is an interesting hobby.Yes. Conflicts with the irreligious.
Meanwhile, if Matrixism is seen as, "global"? And if, in it's tenets, it's dictated that a member subscribing to it must be affiliated with one of the worlds major Faiths, how can it be considered a separate, "religion"?
