<quoted text>And if only the christian cult thought this way. The christian cult (not to be confused with christians who believe in their god) likes to pick and choose from the bible to justify themselves, ignoring the parts that do not fit their lifestyle.
In all four gospels jesus stated that not until heaven and earth pass away will the law pass away. It is plain and clear what he was talking about is the jewish laws. Yet people say that they are not under the old testament. Pick and choose.
When it comes to money they will cheat old people (well any one) and than say "that is business" they will lie, and lets not forget killing "for god" (defense contractors do not post earnings, how much profit do you think they made just from Iraq?)
The different interpretations of the Bible was the sole reason Joseph Smith had trouble picking which one to attend. The whole story of his first vision centers around this. When he asked which church to join, he was answered "none of them". He was told they had pieces of the truth but that the fulness of the gospel would be restored and would be done through him.

The Law of Moses was fulfilled with the atonement of Jesus Christ. The Law of Moses was not the entire Old Testament however. Also the Jews had their own traditions that they had added and complicated the law, that even Jesus said was unnecessary.

<quoted text>Is there true Christians in Mormons, and Catholics???
I'm sure there may be a few!
If any of them actually read the Bible...
They'd know that there is parts of it that expressly
forbid their beliefs... ie "another Gospel of Jesus", and
"Changing Laws, and dates"!
As far as ALL of us being "Whacko"...
Remember that when the Weeping, and gnashing of teeth begins!
Where does the Bible forbid "another Gospel of Jesus"?

What laws and dates?

<quoted text>What if instead of teaching about the Christian God they taught about the Muslim God, or Buddah, or whatever? Would you want that? What if they taught only about the Catholic God or the Baptist God? Would you want that? If you send your child to school to learn to read, write, add, etc. you should not have to worry about someone choosing their religion, that is not the responsibility nor the place of the public school. You teach that to your child at home. If you want them to learn in a religous setting then you send them to a private religous school. You don't force your beliefs on other children, what you may think is good and right may not be good and right to others, so keep it out of the school.
"IN GOD WE TRUST" not Buddha etc.... Our God is living ... Not dead...

Yeah, something else that some of our founding fathers would be railing against if they were alive today.
Replacing our motto "E Pluribus Unum" with that hogwash in 1956 would have made Jefferson's head explode.

Why do you worship evil? YOu are going to burn in hell.
Please define evil. Is evil sacrificing animals to a god, is evil rejoicing as you kill innocent children? Is evil the mass slaughter of people? Is evil slavery and selling your daughters as sex slaves?
Because all of that is what the god you worship demanded, read your bible before you call me evil.
There is no god and Satan is a word that means adversary or apposed it is a title not a name, there is no being named Satan READ YOU FREAKING BIBLE BEFORE YOU TRY TO PREACH SHIT TO ME!

I think it was talking about the book of revelations, the prophesy of the book itself. That said, the bible is made up of many books that was written by men who claimed to be led by holy spirit.

So now religion has a dilemma ,who is the real "Watchman of God" that can show that they have "the truth of Gods word" without any additions to it.

Today many books have been written by those who claim they have been led by Gods holy spirit. So then, how is one to prove that they are the real watchman of God, even prove God exists.

Many books, many writers of religious books, all claiming to be led by God's holy spirit.

GOP gave Christianity a bad name, so God gave the nod for Obama to be elected. I think the GOP was the man of lawlessness the bible speaks of.

I don't believe that and I don't believe that God teaches that. I believe life is a gift, the earth is a gift, it is not something to mourn. We mourn losing our loved ones because we won't get to see them anymore. I think you can twist the Bible to make it say whatever you want it to say. God is is the trees, the sky, the sunrise, sunset, mountains, oceans, seasons. So don't quote the Bible to me and think that is the proof, it is not. You may not be understanding it correctly, or it may have not been translated correctly by King James.
and sooo...out its I that has it all wrong and not you? Yeah, I don't think so. Need no to reply. Don't need your ignorance on top off all the other heathrens and heretics.

You missed my point. I'm not trying to convince you there is a God. I'm just saying you can't call people less intelligent just because they believe in God.
I've already told you that there is no proof that God exists, nor is there proof that He doesn't. We should all agree with that. Faith does not equal intelligence, just like lack of faith does not equal intelligence.
"You missed my point. I'm not trying to convince you there is a God. I'm just saying you can't call people less intelligent just because they believe in God."

Yes I can....
