I think deepblue is a little bit off the planet telling TLD™ that if he is not tolerant of Christians telling him how to live his life, then he is not tolerant of Christianity at all.
It's perfectly valid if that is a core aspect of Christianity.
that is a core aspect of missiology, JOM. Not one of the core teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Look to your Q source, there is no missiological sources in there.
No one has the right to tell anyone else how to live their lives and what values to live by. We all have to work it out for ourselves.
According to whom? Or is this just your opinion? Because, by saying that I don't have the right to tell anyone else how to live their lives, you are telling me how to live my life.
Behavoiur reveals choices. Choices are based on values. Values are teleological, ipso facto, one chooses ontic good, not ontic evil. Therefore, yad bhavati, tad bhavatum. What you feel is good for you, you choose. you choose what will serve you and your beliefs.
I am not telling you how to live your life, I am saying you make choices. Choices will attribute good to you; you don't choose evil, you choose beliefs, behaviours, attitudes and your food in accord with what you think, know and understand to be for your benefit.
The worst thing any religion can do is have someone live in fear of death of eternal suffering, punishment and damnation. People should not die with fear, they should die with love.
Perhaps that's why Christians tell others the good news that, by believing in Jesus, you can avoid that eternal suffering. Then, and only then, can they die with love, rather than the fear of eternal suffering, the fear of returning as a pig, or whatever.
Well, human being running in the human race with horse blinkers on, your good news is not the only good news. Its good news for you people who believe it to be so. And its bad news, telling people there is eternal suffering.
Do you really believe this?
Who has come back from the dead and told you what is over there on the other side?
Have you met anyone who has told you that?
Tell, so we may know and understand.
However, if you tell me that based on your beliefs on what is contained in the scriptures of your religion, then you are a human being running the human race with horse blinkers on, and the horse blinkers are your beliefs.
