  1. Joshua Stoley says:

    In as much as the Moral Law is written on all human hearts and God’s common grace extends to the just and unjust, sure.

    “Even a broke clock…,” right?

  2. Stephen Howsare says:

    No.

    43 For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit.
    44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush.
    45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. Builders and Foundations (Luke 6:43, NASB)

  3. James Gore says:

    Absolutely. Everything can teach us something. I mean what do you have against setting aside times to pray to God like the Muslims do? Or caring fir people and animals like bhuddists do?

  4. William Mc Sr. says:

    IF You are not rooted in the word of god it is best to leave false religions alone. when I firs became saved; iwanted to be sure of salvation so I went to the library and studied every book I could think of about religion. I first started out with islam then ended up with demonology. it was by the grace of god omnipotent through his son the lord jesus Christ I did not gey carried a way.

  5. Mike Davis says:

    I don’t know what an authentic christian is. From my perspective a lot of christianity is rehashing or retellings of more ancient stories. Most christians holidays are rip offs of pagan and roman celebrations.

  6. Wyatt McIntyre says:

    Sure, but it is a fine line to walk, one that we have to be incredibly careful in so we don’t embrace religious pluralism. There are concepts in other religions I admire a great deal, but, in that admiration, I need to make certain it does not change my Christianity.

  7. Anthony James Rollan says:

    Paul wrote in 1-Corinthians – For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, that I might win the more. 20 And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law, though not being myself under the Law, that I might win those who are under the Law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some. 23 And I do all things for the sake of the gospel, that I may become a fellow partaker of it.

  8. Joshua Smith says:

    II Corinthians 6:14
    [14]Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

  9. Michael Hurley says:

    Bad manners corrupt good habits. The Bible transforms our minds and hearts to have good manners if we study it and apply its teachings. The good habits will follow.

  10. Shawn McComas says:

    “good practices” as in what society dictates in various cultures. Absolutely.
    Like being politically correct instead of Biblically correct.

    “Good practices” as in good for the Christian soul?.
    No. Not at all.

  11. Victor Van Der Woude says:

    If there are any good practices it should be observable from the Bible. Christians don’t believe in multiple ways to G-d so trying to pick and choose from other religions is a heresy.

  12. SherrynGary Parrill says:

    I don’t see how. Religion is man trying to reach God. Christianity is God coming down to man. Religion itself doesn’t believe nor teach this

  13. Seth Iris says:

    They can learn, they can also practice it. But what do the bible say? If you know its wrong, do not do it for you already know its wrong.
    Its like looking in the mirror and saw yourself have a dirt in your face. Wont you remove that dirt or just leave it there? There’s a verse for that, i just forgot where (help me find it 😅).
    Also, the Lord encourage us to read and study the bible so we wont sin without us knowing. He said, people suffer because we lack knowledge (hosea 4:6 if im correct).
    So read the bible so we wont be astray.
    God bless

  14. Chris Lindsay says:

    I think so, as long as you have a solid understanding of your faith, so you can parse the errors from the good stuff. I knew some immature Christians in high school who were attracted to the social fabric of the LDS church and seriously considered converting, not knowing about the problematic theology of Mormonism.

  15. Nikki Sheppick says:

    Learn? Like what? Unbelievers are blind to the Holy revelation/inspiration of God Himself, so it is written in the Holy Scriptures, …. unless you mean …. by no longer following after what unbelievers do.

  16. Fuchs Norbert Peter says:

    Yes from the yehova witnesses, example: theren strong belief over the Work of and from Street Evangelisation, but in my personal mind we are must learning first of all from the ministry from Lord Jesus Christ, because there is books and books for Pastors etc, but to day a lot of Pul Pit Members can not bring People to Jesus direct from the streets and places outside from our Churches, my Organisation YWAM do this Daily and Daily world wide.

  17. Alan G Hales says:

    Tim Spangler, Yes Christains can learn from dalse religion, For an example, look how smartly dresed the JWs and Mormons are, whereas a lot of Christain minister are very scruffy as to how they dress. They have no respect for God or their ministry. At least false religions look like they respect theit god. They but some Christians to shame.
