    What the mind thinks the heart feels. Both concepts of "heart" and "mind" are simply a way of objectifying your own consciousness ."Truth", especially religious truth, is relative to each person depending upon their imprints (powerful experiences) and conditioning (repeated experiences). This is all very basic psychology.

    I'd say the heart leads the mind.

    Have you never had health education classes? There is no neurological activity emanating from the cardiovascular system. The brain however does output neuro-chemicals that can affect the entire body. Which is the principle on how faith healing operates. You may have heard the more secular phrase "the power of positive thinking" promoted by christian author Joel Olstein among many others, these are the same principles without using the term Faith Healing.

    Ditto, Outsiders71.

    I believe there is more to our bodies and minds than science yet knows, or may ever know.

    Another that crossed my mind. Quite relevant.
    "People are getting fit for Truth
    Like they're buying a new tailored suit
    Does it fit across the shoulders
    Does it fade when it gets older
    We throw ideas that aren't in style
    In the Salvation Army pile
    And search for something more to meet our needs"

    Again, nothing in this book says Christianity isn't as valid as any other religion. Are you opposed to people even knowing about the existence of other religions?

    Not at all. If we don't know falsehoods, how can we define truth? We all have free will. I just find the catalog shopping of it a little disturbing is all.

    Nothing I hold against anyone. Like I said, everyone can and should have an opinion. I do find it disturbing, but I don't judge anyone for it. After all, one fundamental teaching of christianity is we're all the same and on equal ground at the foot of the cross. Reading this book makes no one better or worse than I. That is the last thing I want to come across as thinking.

    But what exactly is disturbing to you about it? I'm trying to understand why this is bothersome and incites such emotion.

    It's likely personal emotions about it. Not sure it can be put to words. It's probably an individual thing. We probably should just agree to disagree and think no less of the other for it. ;-)
