Re: Some faiths

innerchrist:

require submission; others demand enlightenment. Others still obligate sacrifice or beseech violence. But ours only asks that we believe and accept. Ours is the religion of humility, of deference, of reverence and absolution. Ours is the one of adoration and hope; ours is the one of salvation despite all we have seen, said and done.

This is a stupid attempt at separating people.

Some faiths require submission.

Mandatory belief and acceptance is a form of submission.

Others demand enlightenment. 

I’ve never seen such a religion, but sure, let’s go with that. Isn’t the aim of the Catholic faith to awaken the Christian to his life in and with God? How is this not a form of enlightenment?

Others still obligate sacrifice or beseech violence.

Every celebration of the Eucharist is a sacrificial memorial of the loving death undergone by Christ through the violence of the Pharisees. 

Ours is the religion of humility, of deference, of reverence and absolution. Ours is the one of adoration and hope; ours is the one of salvation despite all we have seen, said and done.

I can say all of this of Hinduism as well. Catholicism is NOT special. 

Namaste.
