right and wrong

Americans live in a society which provides religious freedom to its citizens which allows us to worship God in any manner we please. We have developed tolerance toward each other's beliefs; we recognize that each individual has a civil right to his own beliefs and no one has any authority to coerce anyone to believe anything. Most people in American churches believe that there are Christians in all denominations. When discussing the peculiar denominational beliefs of these churches, the members emphasize that each should be allowed to worship God in the manner in which he pleases and believe that God will accept the, worship of those in each denomination.
The fact that our civil government provides for the practice of religious differences should not be understood, however, to mean that God will accept every religious practice and belief. Satan is the author of the concept that God will accept every belief and practice. God has never revealed that he will accept every man's worship, just so long as he is good, honest and sincere. Rather, he revealed, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isa. 8:20).
Does Everyone Have A Right To His Own Belief?

We in the USA have the right to worship as we choose, but that does not mean that all types of worship will be received by God. Both the old and the new Testaments give us directions on how to worship.

Freedom is a wonderful thing to have but it comes at a price, freedom is not free. God is great!

I certainly agree with the comments made by Dizzy-Dick & Justastick! It should also be noted that acceptance of Jesus as our savior - is foremost of the "directions" from the Old and New Testaments. This is absolutely necessary - because we humans do a poor job of observing of the Ten Commandments - given by GOD for mankind to live by. God loves us so much - he permitted his only son to die on a cross - for our sins. And that is what Easter is all about! Cheers Ron Mahan

A long time ago when I was at Ohio State I decide that any major religion in the world that teaches the right way to live is o.k.

I just understand Christianity in this culture. I could not make head or tail of the Koran (not my culture).
