Interfaith Experiment

First, I would like to apologize for my lack posts and activity, I am a college student and this semester has been a heavy load. I do appreciate all the wonderful comments and have been keeping track of some wonderful posts by my favorite bloggers.

I have started a new blog on an interfaith experiment I have designed. For the next year, I will study Judaism, Islam, and Christianity in order to learn more about their similarities and differences, their inner conflicts, and how they have shaped the world around me. I'll also continue with my Buddhist practice, so there will be some Buddhist insight as well. I'll still be up keeping this blog from time to time depending on energy and time.

Wish me luck, and if you are interested in following my observations, or would like to leave a comment or suggestion, the blog can be found at http://religiousdiversityblog.blogspot.com/

I'm quite surprised by this seeming sudden and drastic departure from your previous path.

What initiated this decision.

It seems like you are seeking something.

You've gotten my attention.

If you would like to debate/discuss religious/spiritual stuff.

I can be contacted at. daviddepape@yahoo.com

76. The disciple should associate with a wise friend, who detects and censures his faults, and who points out virtues as a guide tells of buried treasures. There is happiness, not woe, to him who associates with such an intelligent friend.

I have to admit that you are so much more tolerant of christianity than I am. One of my hobbies is to go on forums and find the biggest baddest meanest most hardcore fanatical christians and rearrange their religion for them.

Awhile back I took down the owner of what might be the largest Christian debating website in the world. This guy has been defending Christianity in debate for over 10 years. He might be one of the best Christian debators in the world. I only asked him 1 question.

Didn't you go through enough as a child, havn't you realized yet how rotten christianity is?
