Christian Dogma is not Pluralistic madison88

No, Christian teachings, especially Bible based Christian teachings are NOT pluralistic or tolerant of any other beliefs.

The teachings of the Bible are very clear. Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. It is a very straightforward either/or situation. Either accept Christ, or be dammed to eternity in Hell.

I've already provided a Bible based description of what happens to those that stray from the path:

The Fate of Spiritual Off-Roaders:

There is no room whatsoever for following the faith of your fathers, or to believe what intuition or logic point toward.

If anyone thinks I am making this up, or making it out worse than it really is in the Bible, just ask and I will provide ample documentation from the Bible.

fachad's standard Babble Faith Disclaimer:

My familiarity with religious ideas should not be mistaken for religious belief. I am an agnostic.

I not a Christian, I do not believe the Bible is the Word of God, nor do I believe in ANY revealed religion (i.e., religion that was revealed by God to some person or through some purported holy book.)

I am especially disdainful of religions that take mythological material, which is beautiful and meaningful in that it tells us about our collective unconscious, and claims that it is historical rather than mythical in nature.

>if we are allowed to believe what our intuition and logic point to is the truth w/out being condemned to hell, then we have the freedom to tolerate the views of others, then we won't feel suppressed. where is this freedom in Christianity? All i see is a dogma that requires we believe or go to hell. it's not much of a choice.
