The truth burns the christians, they cant handle the truth so they hide behind faith.
And stick their fingers in their ears going "nananana".
Like 7th trump, when presented with truth and fact must side step by attacking the bearer of facts and use misdirection to avoid truth.
Why must people delude themselves with such utter delusions?

Yes they are, and in my Opinion wrongly so... I can have a 1000 Thoughts, does not specify what I Know... I can have many and varied opinion, Does not specifically state what I do or do not Know... But to Believe requires Faith in what You think You Know that you then state as more a religious statement than evidenced fact....
One could argue that opinion is based on intellectual IQ and belief is bolstered by emotional IQ. In either case, the thought of the subject is that they think they "know" the "truth".

Really, what about the cursades and millions killed in Jesus name after the death of Jesus, you thank him for that? I thank science and progress for taking us out of the dark ages of paganism. Breaking the spell of religion to become a secular nation free of religious theocracies. We are still progressing and hopefully will end the brain washing of children by religious leaders that stop our progress.
I thank Him for bringing the poor misguided out of the dark ages, using the Bible.

That's what happens when only a few are aloud to read it, and then preach their version. Just look at the JW, they would have you to never vote again, and kill all the babies you didn't want. Our Forefathers seen that, and that's why this country will never restrict the Bible.

So I give thanks to our Lord and Savoir, and the way He used the Bible to make this a great nation. If it were up to atheist, muslims, JW, and some of these other false religions nowadays, we would be back in the dark ages. Let there be Light.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
"You Ethiopians will also be slaughtered by my sword," says the LORD. And the LORD will strike the lands of the north with his fist. He will destroy Assyria and make its great capital, Nineveh, a desolate wasteland, parched like a desert
I will sweep away everything in all your land," says the LORD. "I will sweep away both people and animals alike. Even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will die
From there Elisha went up to Bethel. While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him. "Go up baldhead," they shouted, "go up baldhead!" The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces
Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, "Strike me!" But the man refused to strike the prophet. Then the prophet told him, "Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me." And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him
Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children
Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.
The men of Israel withdrew through the territory of the Benjaminites, putting to the sword the inhabitants of the city, the livestock, and all they chanced upon. Moreover they destroyed by fire all the cities they came upon
HOW IS IT THAT CHRISTIANS CALL THEIR EVIL BLOOD LUSTING HATE FILLED GOD GOOD?

To those with working brains... I actually don't think those things are thing all Christians do... I and most people that have a thread of honest integrity knows that the Claim of Christianity of a few that do bad stuff is not a brush to paint all...

Heres a christian and the christians opinion on religion in schools,

"Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith ... We need believing people."

I come from the point of view that Thinking one Knows the Truth in the absence of validated evidence is the basis of a religion .... and Equals Belief...

Lord knows we need strong voices in support of Judeo-Christian values, not only because they are demonstrably superior to the alternative, but also as an antidote to the rampant narcissism that pervades our culture. Jews have a particular standing to defend the need for justice in this life given the injustices to which they are constantly subjected. I have achieved a lot in this life, and am thankful for the fruits of my labor. And while I will continue to strive to live my life as if I will be measured by what I have done with the great gifts I have been given, I will pause on Thanksgiving to give thanks for the fact that I born into one of the greatest societies man has even known, built on the sacrifice and toil of generations before me. I wish all a Thanksgiving with family and loved ones. May our God bless our nation and judge our leaders. This is a day of thanks for all the many people of the U.S.A. Happy Thanksgiving!

Reality is the Universe could care less we microscopic humans observe it, model it or even if we exist... It will go happily along with out us as it did long before us... Giving the Human Mind more power over reality than it actually has is just the Human Ego at play....

Religion is just the Human Ego attempting to give the believer greatness... Human Ego strives to be Important in the universe and religion allows it to feel superior, to Believe that it is so important that a all knowing, all powerful being made it the pentacle of all creation... It give the Feeling of being better than others that do not fit someones human ego position of import...

It's hardto tell what your poor misguided JW bible says about anything. It has strayed so far away from the true Word, that I'm sure it doesn't care if you kill a child or not. But, thanks for the info. If any Christian reads your post, you make it pretty clear what your Michaelian bible teaches. I guess that's what happens when you start worshipping angels!
Why don't you do yourself a favor and check the same information in your King James Version....but be sure to check it with your manuscripts to make sure the KJV is not misleading you!

Known Fact wrote:
Just for the record...Jehovah's Witnesses do not worship angels. I think maybe you have us confused with your religion. Jesus said,"it is Jehovah your God you must worship and to him alone you should render sacred service." Matthew 4:10

Ignorance is Dangerous Reply:
This is what I'm talking about. The both of you have posted very good information in the past, and people can learn from both of you, But how is it that you two are still divided. I'll will tell you why, you hold your loyality to whichever man made organization taught you, instead of the One that taught the organization in the very beginning. There are Angels and there are Demons and there is God and there is Man. The whole reason we are all in a Mess is because so many get confused about which one to follow. We are all basically saying the same root things, because they all originally came from God, but we always seem to, somewhere down the road, forget who started the whole thing, and get caught up following something or someone else that may have a slightly different interpretation than someone or something else might have. Pride steps in, good ole Satan himself, blinds us from the LOVE of GOD, and we begin to divide ourselves up over rediculous issues and traditions that Christ himself referred to as "gnats"

Matthew 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Matthew 7:12 Therefore ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER YE WOULD that men should do to you, DO YE even so to them: for THIS IS THE LAW and the prophets.

Matthew 18:20 For WHERE TWO OR THREE are gathered together IN MY NAME, THERE AM I in the MIDST of them.

John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them,(((Destroy this Temple))), and in three days I will raise it up.

Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth NOT in Temples made with hands; who in TIMES PAST (((suffered))) ALL NATIONS to walk in THEIR OWN WAYS. Acts 14:15,16.

1 Corinthians 3:15,16 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
16 Know ye not that YE are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in YOU?

Revelation 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that OVERCOMETH shall NOT BE HURT of THE SECOND DEATH.

I agree that not all christians should be judged by what others, just like there are freaks who try to imitate Hollywood Satanist.
I have no problem with the few christians who TRY to live by their beliefs, but the majority who use the christian religion to justify themselves and elevate themselves above other I condemn. That is the christian cult, not the christian religion.
More evil has been done by people who raise themselves up above others and justify their evil through "gods will" I will always stand in the way of these freaks and (adversary) Satan towards their evil intent.

Superior to the alternative? Raping children, murder, killing innocent babies is superior? Te history of your cult is filled with evil hate and perversion, so now you want to say "we do not do that any more" and be different? Sorry, history shows the character of your cult.
Today is a day where we thanked the Native Americans for the help they gave us by showing us which foods are good and how to grow them, you know before we committed mass genocide and killed most of them to steal their land

Unknown to the Wise, when one throws out God he throws out his own purpose, that is why they can find no Purpose. And without purpose there is nothing, and they no longer matter. Their time is short, their days are numbered, and misery loves company.
