    Sand,

    Many of the Seekers in the Maranatha quest will not blindly accept a path to follow. There has to be proof, reasons, which allow such individual to discover Truth.

    Here is a short list of religions, each have proponents that claim their way is the Way:
    1) Buddhist
    2) Catholic
    3) Born again Christian
    4) Hindu
    5) Cathar
    6) Mormon
    7) Humanist
    Are they all correct? Which one is correct? Should we throw a dart, and devote our life to the result? Or, follow one religion because we were born into it, or stumbled across it one day?

    As part of this Quest, we were advised to question what we see and hear. That advice spreads far, wide, and deep. And, its not really pleasant path at times.

    But, to pursue our Father with your whole Heart and Mind, one needs reasons. The reasons / proof does not necessarily mean documented evidence or doctoral theses, and many will find their individual reasons while pursuing their own path.

    This is what it means Who Mourns for Adonis several posts ago.

    Berating and beating people over the head with something does not convince, and is almost always counter-productive.

    In my opinion,

    Does strong belief make something Truth ?

    Do you know how stupid you sound?

    You make a list of a bunch of religions and then claim them all untrue by the statements you make.

    Yet let this site and sites like them come along and your hooked lined and sinkered to them, like they are your truth and you fight for them.

    When your in hell burning for your beliefs, I hope this site comforts you then to.

    Idiots.

    Thanks, both.

    It is a path that goes way back. I believe it is of utmost importance to maintain an open mind, to find the commonality in the fragmented attempts through the ages, to find Truth. When we think we know the answer, we have cut ourselves off from progress.

    What a oxymoron of a statement.

    Do you think when you start to realize I was right, that there will be a way out for you?
    No, there won't. Problem with you people is you don't give the devil credit.

    When they murder the winner, will you think your not part of it or its ok because they tell you its for the greater good?

    I can tell your paths are set. Just don't say I didn't warn you. I didn't try. I didn't beg you. I didn't plead with you.

    Because I did.
