Better yet than discussing them would be for us to live them. ” title=”Smile” />May 17, 2005 at 12:41 pm #4641
Well anyway, I do find it interesting how similar they all are.May 17, 2005 at 5:58 pm #4644

I hope you were not hurt by my reply. ” title=”Confused” /> You are right, they are very similar and interesting. I understand that this is a discussion fourm, but sometimes I find it nice to just reflect inward after reading something like this. I thought maybe some of the others would feel the same.
Do you ever feel that sometimes we tend to over analyze things and start to look for the negative? Like, “What Islam is really saying above is that a believer must desire that everyone else desire to become a Muslim. Those sneeky rats!” We could go on with the other religions too, I sure.
To change the subject, may I ask why you call yourself Uncertaindrummer? Now that’s interesting!
Blessings to you dear friend.May 17, 2005 at 6:33 pm #4646
Muslims are saying we all need to become like them obviously… stinking rats.
Anyway, I do think sometimes we tend to over anaylyze things, but most of the time discussion is good–if I didn’t believe that, I’d hardly be on a discussion board. But anyway, I call myself UncertainDrummer because I’m a drummer in a band named Uncertain End, so it just fits.May 17, 2005 at 7:17 pm #4647

This is only one of many similarities you can find. The Golden Rule falls into natural law. You can find natural law outside of Catholicism for sure. So it is not uncommon to find similarities. But in my findings it is only in Catholocism that you have supernatural law and natural law working harmoniously. In other words only in Catholicism can you find a SOLUTION to disorder (sin, exceptions in natural & supernatural law, etc.). This amounts to the human will aligning itself to the Church’s teachings.

Actually, yeah I was just thinking about that. The Natural Law is a funny thing… We all (or at least ALMOST all) acknowledge there is one, whether by our actions or our words, and yet no one seems to wonder where it CAME from.

I always thought “natural law” was more tooth and claw.
