    My Aunt and I were having a discussion about ppls behaviours and she brought up a Bible quote 2 me. She stated that Jesus said "If u think it u have already committed the sin". I pondered this for a min and explained 2 her that the Qu'Ran states that "If u think it but don't act that is a blessing". Of course she argued me up and down being that she is a very devout christian. My question is this "Which makes more sense 2 ya'll"? Which one is easier, "Being Perfect in thought and deed,(which none will ever do)" or being human but showing discipline and responsibility not 2 act?


    Awaiting any and all responses. Please feel free 2 go with this as u will.
    *I paraphrased the bible and Qu'Ran quotes.

    Peace

    thinking is different from doing....I'm with the Quran on this one and a lot of other things, because I find it more practical and realistic....

    Thanx for the response Bro

    If I apply any religious teachings 2 my life it all will come frm the Qu'Ran because it is a guide that can be used here and now. It is practical and teachings are more applicable 2 here and now.

    had a simuliar conversation with a friend.. in realtion to people that leave sexual,criminal, or other "bad" lifestyle alone.. and whether or not the thoughts come in to question.. as being sinful..

    or same with adultry.. if you think it..

    but im with the Quran as my preference

    Leave that mystery god tricknowledge alone. Make your own decisions about what's correct.

    I feel what u r saying and agree. I was saying that if I do apply any religious beliefs 2 my life, from what Ive seen the Qu"Ran would be my choice.
