we do unto others as we would have them do unto us

Reply Sat 4 Dec, 2010 06:47 am
It's easier to start wars than to end them. It's easier to blame others than to look inward. It's easier to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right path, not just the easy path. There is one rule that lies at the heart of every religion,that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

Is the bolded part a quote from the bible?
Is it the same as "Do not do unto others as you don't want to be done by"?

It's not a quote but an interpretation:

Luke 6:31 (New International Version, ©2010)

31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

From religioustolerance.org:

The Ethic of Reciprocity -- often called the Golden Rule in Christianity -- simply states that we are to treat other people as we would wish to be treated ourselves.

Almost all organized religions have such an ethic. It is normally intended to apply to the entire human race. Unfortunately, it is too often applied by some people only to fellow believers.

A listing of the Ethic of Reciprocity from many religions may be found Here.
