We are a Christian family and we are raising our children as such BUT we want them to have knowledge of all other faiths as well. They are still young so we want to stick with how each faith is the same and how it is different than our own. I would like to hear these comparisons same/different from actual people not just books. What could I tell my children about your faith. How is it the same and how is it different. (Believe in God but not Jesus, Believe in being kind to others but believe in more than one God...) This is the basics of our faith.
Along with following Christ teachings of spreading the good news and being kind to others, Loving our neighbors....

I'm a Germanic Heathen, which is the faith of my ancestors. We get regularly lumped in with the category "pagan" but only in the sense that we are not a biblical religion. We have little in common with most eclecitc or Wiccan beliefs that most people assume you're talking about if you say pagan. Just like Christianity, we have multiple subgroups with different interpretations of the rules. I'm a Universalist Reconstructionist, which means I don't believe you have to be born to it to practice it, and that you don't get to change the rules to suit you or borrow them for other faiths and redefine things to make them fit better.

I think you should just try to educate your children about the spiritual aspect of life. Teach them how to care for their souls and the life of others w/o any prejudice. My faith is within self, and I practice self responsibility, and metaphysical science (aka magick). If you want to share with your children what I personally believe in then share with them an open mind. A mind that knows no limitsis free. I'm anti-religious for many reasons, and so my family and I live a natural spiritual life. We dont focus on right or wrongs. We explore many ways to learn about life and divinity. Everything about what I know and what I remind my children pretty much is opposed to in the church, but we are holy beings never the less.
