Question by xenon: Is religious eclecticism disrespectful + sinful or is it an acknowledgment that all “spiritual paths” lead to
I love and respect each individual unadultered religion and I respect the followers
What I don’t understand is how a person can Go to temple on Saturday, mass on Sunday. Practice yoga infront of the Budda on Monday, Worship an Indian diety on Tuesday for luck or love. Get their crystals read on Wednesday. Consult with their interior designer on Thursday. Chant their mantra’s on Friday and start over again
I don’t see how bits and pieces can comprise a whole

It is because all religions are flawed – someone who takes all the good bits without the bad bits is showing that they don’t truly believe in, or are ashamed of the rest of the religion. I can see why!
However, according to the bible, god doesn’t see it that way, he wants you to be down with all the killing as well as the loving of neighbours – great moral god that he is!
EDIT: the answer below mine is ridiculous. How can ALL spiritual paths contain the truth. Even one (christianity) can’t explain itself without being self-contradictory.
