  • My niece who is Methodist was planning to marry a guy who was Catholic. It didn't go too well with her parents. But eventually, it didn't matter, she decided to break off their engagement.

  • Well let me put it this way.... you can do whatever you want ... but if you chose to bring in other religions and mix it with Christianity ... it is basically saying God isnt good enough and His Word is not good enough... it also says Worship the Lord your God and only Him shall you serve ( not in a slavery way but in an honorable way) . When it is decided to join other pagan beliefs with Christianity it dishonors God. Lastly ... Light cannot dwell with darkness Evil cannot mix with Good.

  • I believe there is a common message found in each of the faiths, so really, from my experience and understanding they all compliment each other, and that common message is reinforced by applying teachings of other prophets/sages/teachers from other faiths to our own. I'm a pluralist (believe in the equal validity of each faith) and a syncretist (pull from different faith traditions), though, so I'm rather biased. I have a foundation in Christianity, and feel a strong connection to other faiths as well. I have felt/found God through each of the faiths I have studied. There are teachers/teachings from each that I admire and incorporate into my own faith.

    I don't believe that there has to be any contradiction, that just because I'm a Christian means I can't recognize the truth found in other faiths. If anything, I think Jesus would have done the same thing, instead of focusing on the differences and excluding anyone...

  • I think it's 100% ok - not everyone will find one religion that fits. I'm a Buddhist, and hold onto those teachings, but I know other Buddhists that also embrace Wicca, and even some aspects of Christianity. The important thing is that you find your own spiritual path, regardless of the labels applied to the teachings.
