Why claim that you have the truth?

Why claim that you have the truth?
Since Religion is splintered into thousands of sects, cults, Religions, denominations, and beliefs, why claim that yours is the truth and others are false? It seems that is what causes problems with Religion. If everyone would respect those of different beliefs, Religion wouldn't cause so many of the problems we're seeing and have seen throughout history.

God isn't speaking very clearly to those who seek. Even the Bible contains many verses that are the opposite of other verses and lead many people to opposite beliefs. This doesn't become a problem until one person claims they are right and the other belief is wrong. Wouldn't it be better and solve a lot of problems if no one was claiming they had the truth and no one was claiming "I'm right, you're wrong"??

Because of Emmanuel Swedenborg's proven spiritualism, http://www.religionforums.org/Thread-Swe...iritualism

I'm highly convinced that Swedenborg had actually delved into the spiritual realm where angels provided Swedenborg and his followers with the true meaning and correct interpretation of God's Word.

Jesus Christ tells us in John 14:6 "I am the way, the Truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by Me." And That does make a difference.

"Why claim that you have the truth?"

It's very simple- I'm right and everyone who doesn't believe exactly as I believe is wrong. I don't see the problem with that at all.

When someone asks "What would Jesus do?" remind them that flipping tables and chasing people with a whip is entirely possible.

I've provided evidence for why Swedenborgianism has the truth! If you've followed Swedenborg's interpretation of God's Word, then you'd know spiritual truths. Smile

But Swedishmeatballs doesn't believe exactly as I do. Therefore, it's obvious that he's completely and utterly wrong. Smile

Proven to himself, no doubt.

"Proven" as in: substantiated by actual evidence: obviously not. "Spiritualism" is an ill-defined area as it is, so "proving" anything about it is impossible.

How about Swedish spiritual meatballs? Big Grin

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it

Spiritual meatballs- Swedish or not- are without form and void, and are therefore totally useless for meal preparation purposes. Besides, everyone needs food and you can't eat spirits, unless you're one of the Inuit Spirit-Eaters who roam the arctic wastelands in search of lost souls to consume, but most of the time they just hang out in the casinos around Anchorage, Alaska, because boy howdy you can sure win big in those places.

Silly girl- I never take meds on the same day I get my weekly electro-shock therapy!
