I have no idea what you're talking about.
Faith is belief in something without evidence.
If you break the law, you will face the penalties. If you don't pay your taxes the gov't will place a tax lien on your house. You will lose your property and pay the price.
Rain man, I don't care about the "constitution or code." The gov't and the laws exist. This is fact, not faith.
Now tell me again what I am missing here.
Oh they exist on paper but just because a man with a gun takes property by force doesnt mean they are applicable.

If a church near you taxed you would you pay it?

Former---I do not worship anything or anyone and I don't go to any church, special or otherwise.But you do. Why?
HughBe--- Because I am NOT "special"
Former--You go to church because you are "not special?"
HughBe--- 100% correct.
Former---I thought god (or whatever you call your deity) made each of us to be very special indeed.
HughBe---God Almighty created Adam and Eve.
All others were BORN and are products of a sinful environment which has caused many to be "special" and even "very special".
I understand.

Your religion is your business.

Clearly you have a reason for going to church and you hold some sort of beliefs/faith.

You also probably realize it would not stand up to scrutiny.

That's ok. Same with most folks.

You're right though. You really aren't special. Just normal.

First all religions and belief in invisible omniscient god(s) that can be invoked to intervene in ones life, or control anything is sheer superstition.

Given that Jesus was a Jew and that his own brother felt that followers of Jesus should be Jews that believed in Jesus as the Messiah that Jews and Christians seem to dislike "Messianic Jews" is pretty ironic.

The great schism in the early church was over the very issue of whether or not one had to be Jewish to be a follower of Jesus.

Paul was the one who opened the following to pagans and other sects as long they could accept Jesus as the resurrected son of god etc. That is what evolved into mainstream Christianity that is dogma today.

Oh I see why now.
Some years ago I was in Denver and Aurora, the two cities were/are very close to each other, only 20-30 minutes by car so I thought Aurora was in the county of Denver.
rabbee: denver is a city and county, in it's self. but they do call denver and it's suburbs, the metro-denver area. when aurora is so large, that is it debatable, as to whom is a suburb of who.
and i do not know if this is still true today. but half of the population of colorado, lives in the denver-metro area. even the city of westminster, is larger than denver and spread out in three counties.

What facts do you rely on to presume that the constituton and code are applicable to me?
rabbee: you are bound by the law of the land, that you live in. and it is your responsibility to know, the law of that land. it is also your responsibility, to know if it is in alignment with your nations constitution or not. and if not, it is your responsibility to legally challenge it.

HughBe--- Of those without the required intelligence.



Former--You're right though. You really aren't special. Just normal.

HughBe---Please reread some of my words before you open your mouth again. "Indeed, the church that I attend has SPECIAL people but the church itself is not special."

There are no rigid or fixed laws; even science in its rare undogmatic moments recognizes that the laws are mere mental constructions. There are only cases, and if the mind could apply itself to all the circumstances it would find that no two cases are exactly similar.

What most people accept as "laws" are actually recurrence of surface effects - change the innate cause, the effect, too, would change.

Consciousness is not only “power of awareness” of self and things or events; it has also an innate “dynamic” and “creative” energy that's unified with it and so consciousness and energy are like the obverse and reverse sides of a coin. Consciousness-Force can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces.

Selfless service is rare. Providing medical care to the poor, feeding the destitute and opening orphanages and other acts of philanthropy are at the subconscious level usually associated with great ambition, pride and egoism - it gives such people a magnified sense of doing good to others and they think they can set the world right by providing services to the needy.

Without the poor, the poor philanthropist will feel like a fish out of water, deprived of his halo of greatness and inner feeling of grandiose.

We want to diminish suffering, but unless we change in fundamental ways right down to the subconscient, the capacity of suffering remains intact and humankind will not change. We turn in a circle – one civilization follows another; but the thing does not change, for there is something missing which is the higher consciousness and its transforming force that're are missing.

However, if it's a person’s destiny, in keeping with his past karma and genetic instincts of the present round of existence, to found schools and give instruction, to care for the sick and to open hospitals and free soup kitchens, it is only right that the person does it. But he must not take that very seriously. It's something grandiose he is doing for his own pleasure and satisfaction and in keeping with his innate nature but it cannot erase the suffering and misery and wars and diseases and death and poverty in the world. All this can be overcome only via the supramentalization of the earth nature.

In the place of the unregenerate earth nature must be manifested Knowledge, Power and Consciousness of the Supramental; otherwise, we shall always turn in a circle around the same stupidities.

The earth nature is in a period of transition that seems long to the human consciousness, but which is infinitesimal for the eternal consciousness. And this period will come to an end with the emergence of the supramental consciousness. The contradictions will then be replaced by harmonies and the opposites by syntheses.
