Open Mind

Post by KendraK » Thu Jun 22, 2017 5:33 pm

In the book religion was discussed and a few specific religions were mentioned. There has to be a lot of religious exposure to the authors from many religions if they are going to write a book of this kind involving God, Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost, knowing full well there would be many differing opinions. I would like to know the reason for listing the religions specifically in the book. It made me curious.

In the book where there was a list of religions it also included political parties, nationalities, jobs, and different types of people.

The point was to show that God want relationships not institutions, and he includes everybody that wants to be in relationship with him.
