    Why do people come on this site and spread Christian propaganda? Whats the point? Even after you reject them, why do these people still try to force the idea on you that you are going to hell if you don't believe in Jesus?

    We have discussions on most all religions / ways of life found here.

    I guess they feel as welcome to share what they believe, as everyone else does.

    Which is a good thing.

    I think thats part of the problem. These people base everything on belief, but never show facts.

    I think it all comes down to belief, since none of us were present in the beginning, and for the most part we're all accepting 2nd, 3rd, or 4th hand information as fact.

    True, but when it has to do with the spiritual(spirituality is the one thing black folk don't play about lol) well being of a person, the matter of knowing vs. believing becomes of utmost importance.

    Nsala malecum,

    Hopefully, you won't take this wrong way, but how does one "know"?

    I'm of the opinion that we are more alike than different, no matter what we know and/or believe.

    It came to mind that this is another thing all of us have in common, no matter what Religion / Spirituality we live.

    None of us were there in the beginning, yet we all consider that which we've heard or learned of, as fact.

    Brother Knowledge Seed ... how do we differentiate between those that know, and those that only believe, when none saw?

    :heart:

    When someone knows, they can prove it from several credible sources. Facts can't be disputed, because there are sources to back it up.

    One can present what they consider as "credible sources" to prove most any position.

    You will consider their sources not credible, and they will think the same of yours.

    Neither of you have first hand information.

    So who knows and who believes?
