Same Difference

When we talk about other’s religious history and beliefs we call it folktale and mythology but when we speak of our own religious history it is fact.

The more I read about different religions or beliefs the more I realize everyone has the same stories just slightly different to suit their cultural situations.  It seems more and more like the biggest problem isn’t that everybody disagrees it is that everyone refuses to learn about other cultures and religions.    If everyone just stopped acting so full of themselves as if they have all the answers in their own little book they would realize that everyone else has the same answers.  

Now my question always becomes are those answers universal because of a supreme being or are they universal because just like how no one has to tell you what love, no one has to tell you that taking another’s life is wrong.

  1. Exactly! Which is why I believe in G-d but not in any one religion. Oh yes I loosely follow Judaism and Christianity for the spiritual connection I feel and the traditions I love, but I believe G-d has revealed Himself to various people in various ways throughout history and then it gets formed into all these “religions” by humans, who are, well…human! We are limited in our understanding.
