Do you think that someone with beliefs that oppose yours can be genuinely happy & fulfilled?
If you are Christian, do you believe a non Christian can be completely happy & fulfilled (in this lifetime & say they never live to see "the end")? Or do you believe someone must have Jesus in thier life to have true fulfillment?
If you are not Christian, do you believe that a Christian can be completely happy & fulfilled? Or do you believe that in order to have true happiness & fulfillment they must share your religion/beliefs/philosophy?
If you are Athiest or Agnostic, do you believe that those who have some form belief in God or Religion can be completely happy & fulfilled? Or do you believe that God/Religion is a crutch and therefore antithetical to genuinne happiness?
Or do you believe something else entirely?

Joy and peace can be found in many paths; if someone is finding deep meaning and connection with God and unconditional love for all mankind through the teachings of Jesus and the understandings of Christianity then that is absolutely the right path. If Christianity creates in a person a closed heart and spirit of pride and smugness, then that person's ego is in between them and the Divine. This is the case with all paths. I found great happiness in Christianity, and I smile when I hear Christians say "Couldn't have been very devout, if you gave up your faith!" because I was THERE at one point. I did have true, pious, observant faith...but not anything like the peace and joy that I have found in pantheism, a broader understanding of God. I tried to remain Christian even as the Whole of Everything that Is was pulling me to a closer relationship, deeper connection, larger communion. Christianity is not for me.
