    Religion
    How does one get around the egocentric pitfall of "looking down on", being prejudiced about, or "putting down" another person's religion because one feels that they possess the truth about who God is and the other person's religion is wrong?

    Compassion is something that is missing from most people these days. Simply put, most people lack tact... which is where most of the problems come from.

    This is not just a problem in Christianity either...

    Well, I suppose that you would have to shed your human nature to avoid it altogether. But, until that happens, I suggest mixing 1 part humility with 1 part compassion with a measure of humor to top it all off. Seriously.

    Peace...
