does't that make your idea of IT a hypocrite?
<quoted text>then if god makes a rule/law then he/she cannot be above it.
<quoted text>the god of genesis is a plural. jesus, or adam, if you like is not the ABSOLUTE. the ABSOLUTE cannot be separate/apart from any aspect of itself.
Balderdash.... Just because a Rule/Law is made does not mean the make of the law/rule must abide by them... Take our Congress for example... Many of the Laws/Rules they pass, they are exempt from having to abide by....

then what is a person who makes a rule for men and then excludes him/her self from it?

Congressman, President....

As for the concept of a God, logic in behavior is worthless.... You cannot logically consider aspects of a totally illogical concept to begin with....

We live in America and Christianity is our religion. If you are not a Christian, then don't attend public schools or move out of our country. This is about whats right for our children. We shouldn't have to leave our religion and values at the school house doors in order not to offend a non believer or otherwise!,

You are Wrong on several levels....

We are a Nation of Laws based on the Constitution... Those Laws allow for the people to Believe how ever they wish Individually but they also prohibit the Beliefs of one individual or a Group of individuals from forcing Their Beliefs on another Individual or group of Individuals.... You statement is very much like the statements of Islamic Nations where they claim the mantle of One Religion governance...

Just because you practice Christianity does not make this A Christian Nation, it never was or never will be, and the religion needs to stay in the Church. Our children are already falling behind the rest of the World and your answer is to mix in a bunch of fantasy nonsense. If you want to warp your child at home then by all means have at it, but try to have the decency to let the others move ahead without yours. Wasting valuable school time with nonsense would only cause their test scores to go that much lower.

Is your closet cleaned out?

Matthew 6:6
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

I've never known anyone who actually did this. Must be like the speed limit, christians simply ignore it.

I know, but just can't help it, the christians bring out the funny in me. Have you read the pastors remarks who call himself "UNA FART"?

Bring out the duck tape,2x4's hammer and nails for hanging us heathen atheists and agnostics. The flames of hell will be turned up a notch for those who are making funny remarks and c4 stuff in their mouths to be blown up for the amusement of raptured christians by the Lord.

The chrisitains are commanded to love us they claim, even youtube shows their love for us. So what do you religies really think of atheists?

Ok I said when I found it, I would post it. But I wll post from the first 10 commandmets too. For there is a differace in the statements of each.

Matthew 22
37. THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL THY HEART, WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND.

Exodus 20
3. Thou shalt have no other god before me

Matthew 22
39. thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself

Exodus 20
16. Thy shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
17. Thy shalt not covet thy neighbors house, wife, manservant, maidservant, ox, ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbors.

Matthews was the last 2 commandments given to man.

Love is to be shown to all, not just to a few. No matter what religion one has, love is suppose to be given to them. He who can not love others because they choose other wise, is not of the true Father. Let me give a good example, though some may say I lie.

My sister was taken from us, her husband is the cause of her death. I still love him, I do not hate him. If I hate him, then I hate that which God created MAN. I do not have to have dealings with him, I do not have to speak to him. This he does know, but upon meeting him out and about. I still show him kindness, people can not understand why I do. Even my own family has scorned me for this, but here is what I have said to them.
Even though we know Jesus was born to die for our sins, we man killed him. God so loved us very much that we was forgiven, for Gods love was n is unconditionally.....Now do not get me wrong at one point I hated the man, who took my sister from me. That was untill I felt my Lord take that hate from me, after years of asking. One day I returned back to going to church, I walked in those 2 doors. I felt a burden lifted off of me, this same day the doctors wanted me in the hostpial bad lung infection. I refused to go, I was beingg called to another place. As I said as I walked through those doors I felt a burden being lifted, when I came up out of the water. I felt heat go through my body, I was healed of 2 things hate and infection.
Now I show love to those I once considered to be the ones I hate, love is a good feeling. But. only through God's guiding hands could that be done. For the hate I had was eating me up, and doing a good job at it.

Judge not others over their beliefs, no christian should do that. They are suppose to help them, not tell them to leave. If that one person does not want it, move on to the next, Ones religion can not be forced off onto another, that is their choice.

Thy closet is meaning,"Close thyself off from others, do not pray aloud."

Then how come christians make such a big show of it? Wanting to "pray with you:, and having big prayer meetings?

In the dark ages the church told us that illness was caused by evil spirits, we now know that illness is caused by germs.
In the dark ages the church told us the world was flat, we now know that it is round,
In the dark ages the church told us the pretty lights in the sky at night are angels, we now know they are distant suns
How is it that christians still believe anything the church said during the dark ages?
