I think that verse is used out of context all the time

I don't think it means that you can't make any sort of judgements about someone you meet. You have to. How are you supposed to pick a wife/husband without making some judgements about them? Or how are you supposed to pick friends that are going to be good? If you can't judge, then who are we to stop being friends with someone?


what that verse really means (in my opinion) is that you have no right to judge whether someone is going to heaven or hell. You are not God. You don't have all the facts about that person so you have no way to know for sure that persons position and relationship with God.

That's just my opinion .

Oooh, you just reinforced my point!

We don't have all the facts about this person! And yet we try to judge if she's a hypocrite?

well, it's true.... who are we to decide that?

we don't know if she is a full fledged Muslim, or just some girl living in America.

and in the end what does it matter? God/Allah/whoever will sort it out in the end.... or if there is no sorter... then it doesn't matter

Really now? So you've gone out, and spoken to everyone who has a religion, and have actual data on how people view their religions?

Or is this just an opinion based on the VERY SMALL percent of people you've viewed in your life?

Has there not been Holy Wars in the past that go against their very religion, yet they name it in the name of God anyway?

As I said. Religion is not a Ruleset. Weather or not is should, or shouldn't be, it's not how it works. People WILL pick apart whatever religion they choose to follow, and interpret it anyway they choose.

And thus because of it, there is no true set for a religion, since everyone practices their own faith diffrently.

of course people are going to want to pick and choose. who wants to go into a religion that forces you to eat shit to pay respects for their god?

what is a religion, and what is the basis for such beliefs to become a religion? if there were millions of beliefs unassociated or non-connecting with each other, then it's not a religion. two people who share different views, and practices cannot be of a same religion. one person cannot believe there is no god, and another believing in a god can say that they both are christians or w/e. you cannot say there are no rules set for a religion. it's crazy to even think that. if there are no rules, then it's not a religion, but rather your own thoughts of how the world works.

and if you are talking about Holy Wars, i believe that both of the feuding sides have DIFFERENT gods. -.-' so no... unless i'm wrong about that, i dont think that was a good example. also, even if they were fighting amongst each other, they're not fighting about the rules, but rather how it's Interpreted.

from what you're saying, religion has no set rules, then how does one know if they're practicing it right as their god would want them to?

Even with set rules, how does one know if they're practicing it as their god would want them to?

regardless of what your god would want you to do, one cannot simply say he belongs to a domination yet have nothing in common with his fellow brothers and sisters in the practice of their worship.

bottom line, you can say you are whatever the hell you want or think you are, but you truly are not one if you dont share or practice the same rules. surly you can't break every commandment and still say you are a true and pure christian. well, you can say it, but it doesnt mean you are one.

Ah, but you're the one that brought up "what your god would want you to do", and you so hastily dismiss the subject? It doesn't seem that irrelevant to me, y'know.

Technically, as long as there's no bashing - which by now, I'm quite certain you're capable of avoiding - there won't be a problem.
