Christians: Still taking credit for concepts they borrowed from other cultures. The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule... "Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you." Now let's look at what other religions have to say about that:



Bahá'í: "And if thine eyes be turned towards justice, choose thou for thy neighbour that which thou choosest for thyself."



Buddhism: "Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful."



Confucianism: "Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you."

Faith walk | Why an atheist goes to church
