"The freedom allowed in the United States to all sorts of inquiry and discussion necessarily leads to a diversity of opinion, which is seen not only in there being different denominations, but different opinions also in the same denomination."
Religion in America, 1856

How true. Here's a great quote from the Buddha: "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it , or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and common sense." This applies to everything including the Bible.

    Strange how we have about 1000 different denominations coming from the same King James bible. Like our constitution, few will read it for what it actually says.

    Funny how the search for Truth leads so many to different conclusions...

    What did Jack Nicholson say in that movie, "you can't handle the truth"? This can be seen now in Washington DC who deliberately let the truth get away from them and started building lie upon lie, until now there are so many lies out there they are smell like skunks.

    cal, you're so right. The more I study ancient Hebrew law; and, where the concepts of founders came from I just have t shake my head in amazement. Archer, though many say they are seeking truth, I think the truth of the matter is they are mostly just looking for the easy way. ?
