I believe this is the man?Show us what your Messiah is like, by all means, we're here for that!
You know, my experience with interfaith dialogue has been that it doesn't work at all to explain to other believers their own faiths, or to tell them what to believe.
Show us what your Messiah is like, by all means, we're here for that! (But leave everyone else's Messiahs alone).
I would generalize this even more, by saying the purpose of meaningful interfaith dialogue is to connect with each other. Making it dependent on the belief in a creator is going to exclude those whose world view does not include a creator, such as Buddhists, and atheists like myself.So if the purpose of having a constructive dialogue is to find out the best way to connect to the Creator, it makes alot of sense, otherwise the dialogue becomes meaningless, as we all fall into the whirlpool of proving each other right or wrong with no outcome.
The Promised Messiah(as) has come to all people of all religions according to their own Holy Scriptures. We can prove it.
I've saved the free pdf.
Thanks TonyThe opening explanation, is the stuff for great fiction, movies are made of this stuff!
".. The treatise puts forward the view that Jesus survived crucifixion, left Judea and migrated eastward in order to continue his mission to the ‘Lost Tribes of Israel’,..."
I skimmed a couple of bits of it last night. In my opinion it seems the author does not really have a deep enough grounding in the New Testament scriptures to understand the meaning of Jesus's appearances after the resurrection etc, to draw some of the conclusions that he does. It happens often in discussions about the death on the cross with people from other faiths, imo.
This already puts me off investing too much time in reading the book. I will rather try to post my own views in the thread:
30 verses of Bible say " Jesus did not die on the Cross"
I assume the points raised in this thread are basically the same points raised in the book, and in the thread one is able to comment on them as they come up ...
Anyone can post links. A bot can post links. I took my time to read and understand your post, and to formulate a question to you personally. I would appreciate a reply in kind, rather than a link to your religion's FAQ.Please read this link. Thanks
