So does anyone out there have any good friends that they are able to have friendly conversations about religion with.
My friend Stephen is a very devout Christian. We have had some really great conversations about the larger themes that one finds in a multitude of religions and philosophies.
For instance: One cannot go through life without causing some kind of harm to others. No matter how hard one tries, one will inevitably make some kind of mistake or judgement in error that will hurt another, even if just emotionally. We feed ourselves by killing other organisms.
Thus the Christian concept of Redemption, or Buddhist ideas of Suffering and Forgiveness, for Non-Believers it is the principle of taking responsibility for one's actions.
