"Godly religion"

Someone in another question just made the statement that Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions were 'Godly', implying that people of other faiths do not have 'Godly' religions.

Okay, are you kidding me?

  • hahaha. that's kind of funny, though i'm sure they were just not educated on other religions. any higher power COULD be called god if the person wanted. the word has many connotations. since i don't know the point of her statement i can't really form much of an opinion on it, but i can certainly chuckle. everyone has their own opinion of who/what "god" is (if anything)

  • Apparently, pnwmom, our Gods, the Gods of Hindus, Sikh, etc do not count.

  • Oh gotcha. I get tickeled when some say they know about other religions because they read about them in the Bible. Then I have to think ...but that is one book ,that is rather biased is it not.

  • well, the best thing to do, when someone says such things.. is to post a link that can help them educate themselves on what you believe.. stress that you aren't trying to convert them, but you would like them to understand your religion before they discuss it.

  • obviously whoever wrote that statement doesn't know anything about other religions or they would realize that many other religions have gods, godesses, or other entities.. just because its not THEIR Gd doesn't mean we dont have one!! or two.. or 10.. or whatever!!

  • I would not say a "Godly Religion" but possibly the religions that follow the God of Abraham...

  • There are many gods but there is only one God that reigns in heaven and is King of all the earth. :Psalm 47:7-8 For God is the King of all the earth: sing praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
