THE SIN WITHIN

THE SIN WITHIN

The three major religions have mutual sins and also autonomous sins meaning self-governing in autonomous territory. In a nutshell you have your sins and I have mine.

Many of us grew up seeing only our homogeneous neighborhoods, experiencing only our local cultures and religious traditions, and learning right and wrong from our families and churches. Judaism was the originator of the laws that Christianity and Islam built itself on. But in-leiu of this there are Jewish laws and commandments that are for Jews only, and there are commandments for Christians and laws for Muslims that are not shared. Who's to say one is right over the other.

Of all the laws and commandments in different religions the golden rules exist only within your heart and not in a religion although heart and religion may be mutually agreeable in definition. As an example: Abortion is still a difficult, contentious and even unresolved issue for some religious groups as to whether it is permitted. The answer is not trapped in some religious jargon but resides in your heart.

The Roman Catholic Church – opposes abortion in all circumstances. The second-largest church, the Southern Baptist Convention, also opposes abortion, although it does allow an exception in cases where the mother’s life is in danger.

Which philosophy becomes your persuasive belief? It is whichever one is consistent in your heart. If you were on a deserted island with the opposite sex with no Koran or Bible, what determines right or wrong. Your heart determines right or wrong.
