    The Dalai Lama said that the basic creed of all religions comes down to this: Love God/Love each other. What are some other creeds that you think ALL religions should adopt and why? Lilly

    hmm....sounds familiar...

    Math. 22:36 - 40 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" He said to him: "You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second, like it, is this: 'You must love you neighbor as yourself' On these two commandments whe whole Law hangs and the Prophets.'

    But, let's see all religions.. ? Should be against:

    immoral sex (rape, incest, children, adultry) , murder, stealing, false testimonies

    Okay...I'll play along!

    As the East and the West are illumined by one sun, so all races, nations, and creeds shall be seen as the servants of the One God. The whole earth is one home, and all peoples, did they but know it, are bathed in the oneness of God's mercy. God created all. He gives sustenance to all. He guides and trains all under the shadow of his bounty. We must follow the example God Himself gives us, and do away with all disputations and quarrels.

    (Abdu'l-Baha, Abdu'l-Baha in London, p. 38)

    The rule of three (also threefold law or law of return) is a common tenet in Wicca. It states that both the good and the evil that one creates in the world will be returned threefold (in joy or suffering). It is therefore seen as a pragmatic reason for ethical behaviour and compliance with the Wiccan Rede. In other religions, it is comparable to karma and the golden rule.

    I'm not Wiccan but this basic idea is pretty good. Whatever ya do good or bad will be returned three fold.

    If we thought that our negative actions would be returned to us threefold, maybe we would refrain from said negative actions.

    I second that motion.
