No.

God never encourages sins, but He gives compssionate warnings.
“3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.” (Christ, King James Bible, Mark)

Thank you for your clear response 🙂 Interestingly enough, Jude was inspired to warn the early Christian congregation about certain ‘ungodly men who had turned the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct and proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ.’ (Jude 1:4) It would seem that Jehovah God’s undeserved loving kindness is not to be abused by using it as an excuse to willfully sin against him 🙂

Baha’u’llah says:

Rememberest thou not God’s warning uttered in times past, that thou mayest be of them that heed His warning? He said, and He, verily, speaketh the truth: “From it (earth) have We created you, and unto it will We return you, and out of it will We bring you forth a second time.” This is what God ordained unto all them that dwell on earth, be they high or low. It behoveth not, therefore, him who was created from dust, who will return unto it, and will again be brought forth out of it, to swell with pride before God, and before His loved ones, to proudly scorn them, and be filled with disdainful arrogance.
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 230)

HOW TO UNIFY DIVERSE RELIGIONS OF WORLD?

How to UNIFY Diverse Religions of World?

they have more in common than diversity – maybe when you all realize that you can uniformly get on with life…..

Posted by mariellarose Aug 19th, 2009 at 6:25PM

Call it Acceptance.
The general acceptance of different religions and beliefs should be the unifying “religion” of the world.

Posted by Wizardneedshespills Apr 8th, 2012 at 12:10AM

That will never work since they all have different believes.

Posted by SolFeather Aug 20th, 2009 at 8:55AM

Simple. Stop each religion from teaching that they are the ‘one and only true way’ and that all others are wrong and/or evil.

Posted by Lulwa Aug 20th, 2009 at 4:20AM

I was thinking of that last night.

Maney religions belive in God. belive in Angels, prophets like Adam and Noah. I think some people from each religion who have a deep studey of theier religion should meet together and find the things that they all agrees on.

I have seen it but they were looking for te things that they were disagreeing on.

I suppose starting with 2 religions and then adding one by one.

you cant unite diversity…..thats why rational people invented acceptance

Posted by allofus Aug 20th, 2009 at 1:01AM
You can not, you have some who have 1000s of gods and some who have a one true god. Some have a particular people group that does not include any other peoples but their own. To many ways of worshiping the different dieties. Most have a salvation through study or deeds or good works or sacrifices or just simple faith. Some are dependent of believing in just the one diety and others of many dieties but ultimately only to the one within that system.
To much diversaty to unite into one faith, to do so would devalue the very essence of each of them until they were no longer what they were.

WHY “WISDOM” IS NOT “TRUTH”?

Why “wisdom” is not “truth” and “truth” is not “beauty”?

Human wisdom is not truth and beauty, because man is not omniscient.
But the Wisdom of God is essentially Truth and Beauty, because God’s
wisdom is like the Sun, while man’s wisdom is like the image in the mirror which is not real and depnding on the condition of the mirror.
I don’t know this Reality; I only repeat the Teaching of the Prophet.
The real problem is that man cannot conceive perfect wisdom;
we understand things relatively and we dispute back and forth
depending on our relative positions.

“Thy might beareth me witness, O my God, what befitteth Thee is far greater and more exalted than any being could attempt to accomplish. Indeed nothing can ever comprehend Thee as is worthy of Thee nor can any servile creature worship Thee as beseemeth Thine adoration. So perfect and comprehensive is Thy proof, O my God, that its inner essence transcendeth the description of any soul and so abundant are the outpourings of Thy gifts that no faculty can appraise their infinite range.”

Answer by pukirahe Apr 7th, 2012 at 10:11PM

Prayers revealed by the Prophet of God.
Books written by men are also food for the soul,
but they cannot be completely good like prayers.
Because revealed prayers not only sustain
the soul, but they also enlighten, empower,
protect the soul completely and eternally.
The most profitable literatures for human soul are
the Holy Books. The best books of men are good,
bad and controversial. Therefore, the world is illuminated
at about five centuries after the Advent of the Prophet,
when the sacred verses are read, meditated and practiced
by the great majority of people.

“O people of God! I admonish you to observe courtesy, for above all else it is the prince of virtues. Well is it with him who is illumined with the light of courtesy and is attired with the vesture of uprightness. Whoso is endued with courtesy hath indeed attained a sublime station. It is hoped that this Wronged One and everyone else may be enabled to acquire it, hold fast unto it, observe it, and fix our gaze upon it. This is a binding command which hath streamed forth from the Pen of the Most Great Name.”
