beccababy24 Went to St. Cecilia, a Catholic Nunnery/Motherhouse for World Religions class today. Enjoyed observing the prayer time the sisters had, and getting a tour around. Of course being an artist I enjoyed the architecture, paintings, stained glass, and sculptures as well. It's right up the street from my college and I've always wondered what it looked like since it's gated, but its beautiful once you get inside the gates. I recommend checking it out! #WorldReligions #College #Nashville 4h

ayeshascollection "You can study God through everything and everyone in the universe, because God is not confined in a mosque, synagogue or church. But if you are still in need of knowing where exactly His abode is, there is only one place to look for Him: in the heart of a true lover."

campeaglewilderness This week our Walkabout students are in Austin, Tx for their Worldviews and World religions trip! Pray that this trip would be a beautiful transition from the wilderness into the real world and that it would be a step towards learning how to interact with a diverse culture as a compassionate follower of Christ! #worldview #worldreligions #austintx #walkabout #gapyear 1d

justanotherapostate More children are born into Muslim families in a single year than the LDS church has grown in the 185 years since its founding. The Seventh Day Adventist church was founded over thirty years after Mormonism, and has 3 million more members. The Jehovah's Witnesses began over 45 years after Mormonism, and they claim 8 million members who proselyte for their church, with about 19 million who attend their annual Memorial of Christ's Death. Compare that with the estimated 5 million active LDS members. #justanotherapostate #exmormon #atheist #mormonism #statisticalreport #ldsconf #worldreligions (When you take a look at the big picture, you start to understand why the Pew Research Forum, in its December 2011 report on Global Christianity, lumped Mormonism into "Other Christian Traditions," the same category it described as containing Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Scientists, the Unification Church, Swedenborgians, and Christadelphians. It almost makes Mormonism sound like a fringe group. But what do I know? I'm just another apostate.) 2d
  •   poseyjt @sugarconnection oh they'll have the kids to fill outer space. That's why celestial polygamy. . But yea space is small and only 6, 000 years old so shouldn't take that long. I'm wondering how much butt kissing to get a planet closer to kolob? So I can get there in the twinkling of an eye for Christmas dinner. 1d
  •   senormac To be fair we should probably divide up Islam if we're going to divide up Christianity. 1d
  •   fresc18 And since Mormonism has such small numbers when compared to these other religions, it makes since that its more popularly made fun of then other religions! ...oh wait ;) 1d
  •   kenzey.d Lol @fresc18 that's exactly what I was thinking. 1d
  •   twowheeledfreedom Is Islam divided up? @senormac 1d
  •   angelblossom @justanotherapostate why do you think Mormonism has grown so slowly compared to the other SDA and JW when Mormonism arguably has the most organized and proactive missionary team of all three? 8h
  •   justanotherapostate That's a fair question, @angelblossom, and my lack of familiarity with the SDA and JW doctrines and organizations prevents me from speaking intelligently on the subject. Anyone with more insight care to answer the question better than I could? 8h

wanderwithkasey A young girl prays as her family looks on at Dazhao Temple. I don't know this family's beliefs, but the largest portion of Chinese citizens considers themselves nonreligious. It's possible that this young girl has chosen to take the uncommon, but traditional in many ways, path and become active in the Buddhist faith. Whether or not her family shares her beliefs, they seem supportive of her choices. I just had to capture her in this beautiful moment of serenity in devotion, unaffected by her surroundings. I rediscovered a series of photos I took with my good friend, @kimbaaaaa's cam while at #DazhaoTemple in #Hohhot, #InnerMongolia, #China. I'll try to share one daily from the series. 2d
