When People Are Truly Inspired By God They Help Each Other

3 posts in this topic

Against all the hatred being spewed by certain sectors at the moment, far too often justified by some interpretation of the Bible, there are also many stories of people doing religiously inspired good deeds. I posted in another thread about one example of a church group helping refugees (of course everyone knows the Bible tells one to help strangers in a strange land). Here's another, in this case of reaching out across faiths. It's these kind of stories that give us hope for humanity.

And then to add to this idea, we have also seen Muslims reaching out to Jews to help physically and financially after the recent desecrations at Jewish cemeteries. It's so inspiring to see people motivated by their religion to reach out and help those of other faiths.

Could not agree more. All too often organized religion has an agenda that has nothing to do with advancing the behavior espoused by said religion.

I am of the mind that a true "Christian / Faithful" is not defined by what that religion is or what church you belong to but rather ones behaviour towards ones fellow man.
