BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, January 18th, 2013 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“In all instances, what religious ideology claims as truth has been handed down over generations from one person to another, with each new storyteller or writer likely adding their own bit of journalistic license to the mix. In the end, what we are told is the “Word of God” is something that we had to have been introduced to by someone else, and based on that introduction, we are expected to blindly accept it because that is what a good Christian, or Muslim, or Hindu, etc. should do. Yet, haven’t you ever wondered how the God-Force could apply different rules to different groups of people?

To dare question the source of the information provided in religious texts is often considered by many religions to be at least inappropriate, and at worst sinful. The reality is that individual religious dogma cannot prove its own truth is actually the truth, nor can it prove that another religion’s truth is not the truth. Once you open your mind to this fact, it becomes easier and easier to be more open-minded about spirituality in general.”
