Let's hear something positive about a religion not your own!

I am Seventh Day Adventist but I have always really admired the Jehovah's Witness. They really work hard going door to door and I am sure that is not always easy. They are very convicted of their beliefs and provide free Bible study's and free literature.

  • I have nothing negative to say about any religion.

    I have found: peace, solace, wisdom, guidance, love, and compassion in every religion I have ever encountered or studied. Every place I have been in this world, has had people of different beliefs. And I have still found all of those things amongst those varying beliefs.

  • My impression of Mormons is that they are so family-oriented and they believe in being faithul and not being sexual with anyone until marriage. Those are really good values and I am very impressed with them.
    I am also agreeing with the Jewish religion for many of the same reasons and for their belief that Christ has not come to earth yet....I think Jesus was a wise man but not the son of God.
    I also feel a kinship with the Quaker religion because of their Pacifism...they will not go to war unless they can avoid killing (in any way)and do not approve of guns.
    I need to read about other religions too.

  • Without Islam, we would not have any of the great works of the Greek Philosophers, Scientists or Mathematicians today. Any knowledge we retain from Ancient Greece and Rome, we have because Muslim scholars preserved it while the Greeks and Romans blew each other up.

  • I actually agree with pixie - there is much in each faith that I find inspiring, and common themes that I respect through them all.

  • I admire the Jewish and their community feel. Their ability to make everyday about their beliefs and live it.

    I admire many things about many religions but there is one specific.
