  • If you don't believe in the Truth, then you exchange the truth for a lie. My faith (divinely bestowed on me by the author of Truth) tells me what is true and what is false. I believe that those who believe in the lie are fooling themselves, but I don't believe that deep down they know God is real (at least not a conscious level - an argument can be made that sub-consciously they know and are trying to suppress that knowledge).

  • What is the truth Eilish? It is according to your religion and faith for what is true for you but it is not true for others so it would me it is not necessarily truth in that it is real or not

  • I think that people of other denominations than mine can go to Heaven, the ultimate goal for Christians. I also believe that they will have to turn to the one true God.

  • Me personally.

    Nope. Main reason being as a person who was raised Hindu, I believe all are one. Meaning, everyone/anyone who believes in The One Universal Creator, regardless of what name they choose to use (God, Jehovah, Brahma..etc) all believe in The One Creator. Regardless of what names one chooses to use, what holy text the read/believe, what rituals of worship they perform..etc All believe in/worship The One Universal Creator. All paths are paths to the Divine/The One Universal Creator. Since this is my personal belief, I believe that all believe in the same Creator, there is no "My God" "Your God" type thinking or belief for me. Just "God" (using the term/name that is most generally used).
