Quote from: Baruch on June 18, 2017, 09:05:36 AMAtheists are cool with that. No afterlife for them.
Quote from: popsthebuilder on June 18, 2017, 09:09:27 AMI'm cool with it too. Afterlife should be nothing but an after thought. Motives stemming from fear(of any sort) aren't aligned with any true religion or belief or faith. Baruch; correct me where I am wrong please. I specified you because of your resourcfulness and seeming lack of bias. peaceSent from my Z983 using Tapatalk
Quote from: Baruch on June 18, 2017, 09:21:10 AMI work hard at being unbiased. But that doesn't mean I don't have an opinion or a favorite (or unfavorite). I have studied everything I can, for my whole life. And I try to apply charity to all I read and to all I know. Some things I read (anti-semitism for example, read it every week) are hard to take, and so are some people. I won't say I love my enemies, I am just trying hard not to have any.Some of my posts are reactive. Didactic posts don't fly well. So not every post is thoughtful or researched. I am as spontaneous as I can make myself ... but it comes from the real me, even if the real me is a parfait, not an ogre. Yes, the greatest saint I know, is a Muslim woman who lived 1200 years ago. Ra'bia of Basra. She said that fear of punishment and hope of reward were ignoble motivations. She had pure Allah love ... she was more true Muslim than Muhammad himself.
