Quote from: Unbeliever on January 20, 2023, 11:31:23 AMHi Dreamer!I too hungered for T/truth, until I found it, or at least what satisfied my hunger. I can't say I've got the whole capital "T" truth, but I at least know enough so that I no longer fear death. And that's a very long way in the right direction.
Quote from: Unbeliever on January 20, 2023, 11:31:23 AMI am curious,though, about what prompted you to come here. What are you expecting to gain here? I do hope you enjoy your time with us, though.
Quote from: aitm on January 20, 2023, 08:43:45 PMIt is indeed much easier to believe in a god if you get to define what he is.
Quote from: Dreamer on January 21, 2023, 08:33:05 PMI think all deeper truths point to the same thing--and the Christian God is the same as Allah, as Brahman, certainly Yahweh... The distinction is in the eye of the beholder, in our varied histories, languages, viewpoints....
Quote from: Dreamer on January 21, 2023, 08:33:05 PMI'm more concerned with how I ought to live my life and govern myself.
Quote from: Mike Cl on January 21, 2023, 11:05:14 PMWhat leads you to believe Jesus (of the bible) is not a fiction?
Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on January 21, 2023, 10:58:31 PMYeah, they're all bullshit.
Quote from: Dreamer on January 21, 2023, 08:54:47 PMIndeed. God is love is both a simple and complicated definition. This inspires me to ask the children at Meeting, to define God.Also curious what the adults would say, though they're largely academics and know lots of lovely words they can use without actually saying much...As an aside, a number of Friends where I attend will also pray to Mother God and refer to God as She or They, not just always He.
