Is it sufficient?

If you are Jewish and maintain you've "explored other religions" because you've studied orthodox, reform and conservative, or a Christian who has looked at 5 or 6 different denominations of Christianity, or a Wiccan who has studied Alexandrian and Gardnerian, does that really count as exploring other religions and asking questions?

  • Nope. Exploring other paths within your own faith is NOT exploring other religions! Although I encourage both exploring those religions outside of your path as well as those within.

  • yes..'sufficient' is up to the searcher. not everyone desires or needs to know all there is to know about world religions. unless they are teaching courses or debating/discussing religions outside of their own..sufficient is..sufficient.
