Buddhism and Taoism aren't really religion. They are more like ideas and perspectives.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I'm a Christian. I believe in God and his word. But I don't really go to church at all.

I feel as though Christianity has been distorted by some people, and by some people, I mean people who call themselves Christian. Like the "God hates f*gs" signs. Which has put a bad wrap on actual Christians and the religion itself.

In reality, Christians are kind hearted people who care for others, regardless of race, gender, creed, religion, or sexual orientation. I mean, I have quite a few atheist friends, and also a homosexual friend. And we get along great. It's out job to spread the word, not convert. It's a persons decision whether or not to accept Jesus. We have no right to force someone to believe in anything, but as long as we tell, we've done our job.

Sorry to go off on a little tangent, just wanted to establish my views on Christianity.

I believe that God hates sin, not the sinners, since all of us are sinners.

that really depends on which sect of Buddhism you're talking about, many have come to have their own groups of deities to worship etc.

Exactly, which is the rule I live by. Hate the sin, not the sinner.

not really, one has real people getting hurt, the other simply bruises the egos of people who tries to put themselves in other people's business.

I think it can be very hard for some people to not hate a murderer, especially if they know the victim(s). I don't think that I could be free of that hate (but hopefully I will never have to find out).

But at the same, that's just another confirmation that I am also a sinner.

So when God, who knows everything about all people and have judged that all have sinned, is willing to be reconciled with anyone (even a murderer) who repents and takes the salvation offered through Jesus Christ, it is not my place as a fellow sinner to say otherwise.

being aware of your hate so that it doesn't get out of hand is important too. After all even a murderer has reasons for the deed, even if they are wrong, and there are some types of murder that make us angrier than others.

Eh, I would hate the murderer, and I would hate the person that blatantly lives a life of "sin".

Unlike Evangelical Christians, my view is that we're all fundamentally good, and that "evil" is the exception. And evil conduct should be ostracised with extreme prejudice. However, I judge "evil" more narrowly then most. Jaywalking, or cheating on your wife, are not "evil". Murder, on the other hand...

I removed all the off-topic discussions that had nothing to do with the purpose of this thread. If you wish to debate the merits of church within religion, whether Jesus wanted a church, or anything not directly related to answering the question "What is your Religion?" please do it elsewhere. This is not the thread for such a discussion. Please consider this an official warning.
