Would the Creator, with all the love, power and wisdom of the universe, make us all so different and then deem only one right way to get to His kingdom? I would think not. Who are we to decide which part of God is the best?

I believe that we are all connected spiritually to God so I really don't think there is a wrong or right way. There is a universal energy that goes on forever that we are a part of.

I think most major religions have one basic thing in common, be good to your neighbor. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. I think we humans are too obsessed with the little detailed differences, wars are fought, people die over these differences that in the end will seem like nothing to us when we know the real truth.

My brother is a PHD in physics and knows many scientists who are convinced that we all share a certain energy wavelength that they cannot quite understand yet. I think the bible teaches us it's your soul.

I do not believe in hell. I think that we are all responsible for the good and the bad of the human race, we are all brothers.

I believe there are trillions of planets just like this populated by people just like us and we all share the same energy and we all have the same God.

LOL, thanks. In tribute to my wife's grandpa who always thought that was the funniest thing anyone ever did. He would tell his little grandchildren or great grandchildren the same thing and then make a funny face or noise when they did it. I guess you had to be there...

So do you think God is unfair if He makes the rules in His universe?

Exactly, but we may never see them. Bryan Greene goes as far as to say there are many replicas of us out there.

You lost me a bit by adding the clause "of the universe". Also I think that once you whittle away all the things that don't matter to be able to get to his kingdom, there little there is to need to accept, is really quite minimal. Fore example, it doesn't matter if you accept you are saved by Jesus or Yeshua.
