    Peace and Blessings Family,

    What good is your path ... your Spirituality and/or Religion ... if they do not keep you from disrespecting your Sister or Brother?

    How can you say you love, respect, and honor God (or even Our Ancestors) ... who you cannot see with your naked eye ... while showing virtually no love, respect, or honor for those you see (virtually) every day?

    How can your life path manifest such ugliness, demonstrated by you, yet it is the right and only way?

    You are a representative of your life path, yet you attack others for exercising the same God-Given right to believe as they choose, just as you're doing?!

    How can this be?

    How does your path justify such?

    Help me understand please.

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    i strongly disagree

    i see this for so called established traditional religions

    religion REJECTS ALL NEW INFORMATION, so therefore is rigid in its' thought process and you see the end results today

    i thought offering someone new information should be view as lack of love

    I THINK IT TAKES ALOT OF LOVE FOR SOMEONE TO SAY TO SOME HEY
    I HAVE INFORMATION THAT WILL HELP YOU GROW AND BECOME STRONGER AS A HUMAN SPIRIT

    SOMETIMES PASSION GETS IN THE WAY OF THE APPROACH SOMETIMES
    BUT TO SAY THAT IS NOT LOVE IS WRONG

    IT IS LOVE, BECAUSE IF SOMEONE DIDN'T CARE WHY WOULD THEY EVEN
    MENTION ANYTHING

    this closed mindedness it killing us, and when i say open mind THAT DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING GOES, but we are in a matrix that allows loseness
    of thought not refinement and so here we are

    so i say this out of love, not to show hate to you, i hate the lies we've been told

    think of it like this, when slaves where trying to teach each other to read
    that was out of love right? so if someone comes hardcore and says you need to learn to read they do it for love, but the other person says i don't want to learn to read, and person teaches sees the rigidness, knowing the reading
    will ultimately help, so the rigid person because of their rigidity see the love
    being expressed as disrespect or hate

    when the hate is actually the fact that

    WE HATE SEEING YOU LIKE THAT

    and the end of the day we are family

    most of us at destee.com understand or else we wouldn't be here

    and some of us have the eurotrix mentality which in its' base form is based in
    divisions

    also destee you like say there's no difference between spiritually and religion

    I DISAGREE

    THERE'S A BIG HUGE DIFFERENCE

    "RELIGION" CAN NEVER EXIST WITHOUT "WORDS"

    WHILE SPIRITUALLY DOES NOT NEED "WORDS" TO FUNCTION OR BE OVERSTOOD

    I would say the history of religion shows these attributes rather readily but if you can't see it you can see it

    why are we all so scurred to grow?

    we do we have to lose?

    besides finding that we've been lied to our whole lives?

    :help:

    You cannot say you love the Father but hate your brother or sister; the Father sees this, and does not approve of us behaving in such a way. This is why it is stated in Holy Doctrine that you cannot love the Father who cannot be seen here by us while hating your brother that you do see.

    There's much love, compassion, forgiveness and mercies to be given, but so many are withholding for fear of thinking it will be wasted. However, we should always consider ourselves; do we ever feel mercy is wasted on us? Or forgiveness? Or love and compassion? Ever? Then you should never think that about another! The Father knows every last one of our outcomes at our end, yet He does not at all withhold love from even those who don't believe. So how could one of us, not knowing our brother's or sister's end think we can decide not to give what we are given? It' hypocrisy and cruel. Give love, don't hate; let your feelings be sweet, not bitter.

    I'll say, the Father gave us an ultimate love and mercy with giving us His Holy Son, so giving the Father our own selves, by showing faith in He who was sent is a great thing one can do. A return of the love given to ourselves.:)
