Whatever your belief system ...

should you not speak your mind or quote from the many books if it means some choose to take offense at your own style albeit not preaching? Is preaching a dirty word for a Religion and Spirituality category? WWJD? Where does one go to answer the questions posed about ones beliefs if not in the appropriate category? Why the confusion?

Answer #1

Go ahead and preach… but just as you have the right to preach, others have the right to disagree, where else should they go but to express their religious/spiritual beliefs? Or perhaps you just like saying things, you dont actually like anyone who says anything different? Sorry, that’s not what the site is for…

Answer #2

Quoting from a book at appropriate times is fine, but quoting from it all the time, particularly when the quote has little to do with the topic…well that comes across as preaching.

Answer #3

Stating what YOU believe when answering a question is perfectly legit in the Religion & Spirtuality Catagory…it’s when people become insistant (and insulting)that THEY are right, and others are wrong that it gets sticky…That includes both believers and non-believers.

Respect is the key…dialogue is good, but if it stoops to name calling and insults, the discussion will be closed.


Answer #4

Phrannie is right.

starting your question with I BELIEVE won’t sound like preaching and bashing others. the problem comes in when you try and force your beliefs down other’s throats.
