Whoops, sorry, I think I misunderstood you! I asked you where you get the idea that god says not to question hom, and you quoted the 2nd commandment, and said that some religions no longer follow this. I said that the second commandment has nothing to do with questioning god, it is about worshipping false idols. Did you mean something different to how I understood it? I think that, whether your religion takes the scripture you quoted ad relevant and important or not, it still doesn't have anything to do with not questioning god.

(my interpretation of that is 'any other god besides the Judeo-christian god')
So to worship any other god on offer at the time would be a form of 'questioning your chosen god' or disobeying your chosen god [or in the case of children, your parents' chosen god.
False = wrong
False = alternate
False = not our rules or law
So it's like saying 'if you don't follow ME, you'll suffer the consequences.
Question = doubt
Question = have issue with
(I wasn't meaning it in the sense 'ask him a question so you get a reply')

When I question God, I'm asking HIM for clarification...not a man...not some guy behind the pulpit...not my parents and not some other God or graven image that I don't even believe in. I'm asking HIM....how that can then equate to worshipping other Gods is beyond me sorry.

exactly Regina - you are lucky enough to have born into a generation of a culture located in a specific place in the world that has tweaked the story that way.
Not all are the same.

Sorry mine are sounding abrupt too...I just read back. Don't mean it too. I'd just got back from the shops where I was almost squished by a semi trailer so my nerves are shot right now.

and good for you Des...
You obviously don't follow like some people do.
Your 'love filled' interpretation of an authoritive order is different to some.
if something is open to interpretation, like this collection of religious writings - then ofcourse you are going to get variations.
