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.

I thought that we are not under the law but under grace. The old testament laws do not apply, or is it a sin to eat pork and shellfish? HMMM? Picking and choosing from the bible and making things up as you go along just proves that your god is not real and you do not believe that the bible is the word of god.

I didn't miss any point. I did not address whether there is 0, 1 or are a million gods. I implied that people manufacture and accept their most comfortable personifications of their god(s) and the mythological residences/creeds/doctrines etc. for them. I also said that intelligence is not a yardstick for gullibility. It is that silliness which deserves to be mocked.

How can you believe in Satan and not God? HUH? I don't get that. I mean I worship God and not Satan, but I believe there IS A satan, how could I believe in God and not Satan? Good and Evil. That is what they are. You worship Evil.
I confess that I don't know diddly about Satanic Priest's religion (?)- if that's even what it is... perhaps it's a philosophy? Obviously you have no idea either, but it doesn't at all hinder you from jumping to black and white conclusions.

What do you think about such behaviors, do whut? Are they indicative of intelligence?
Would you agree with me that it is reflective of an ethnocentric, xenophobic fundamentalist prejudice which is more "un-American" and potentially more harmful than my own disdain for artifice?

For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophesy of this book: if anyone adds to these things,God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book. 19) and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophesy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book.
Interesting and ironic. No additions beyond the Christ's gospel? Well, in the first place, there's no record that Jesus wrote ANYTHING. Revelations was written by John of Patmos - a guy who never met Jesus (and neither did Saul) and had no known credentials, but there's his book added to all the rest. Then people rant and rail for it over a hundred other writings that hold the same degree of authority. Nods to Moroni - Sic 'em!.

Aint no ones business what others do/worship/eat/sing/talk to/type to/dream about/tinker with/wear or whatEver else anyway, so long as they aren't hurting anyone else.

Just like IGNORANCE is NO EXCUSE for the HYPOCRICY of ANYONE who thinks they're own poopoo stuff stinks any less than anyone elses!

Reading some of these posts over the months, that ol'(reference) "Peyton Place" has Nothing up on on this thread!!

This is civilized 21st century AMERICA, NOT some dark age, stone-age land of barbarians!!!

And SOME people (ie: HATE spreaders-no matter the race,creed, NON-creed or color)need to straighten the hell up, GROW UP and act like it.

Shame on THEM-hate inciters of any kind!

How is pointing out the crazy things Christians do in the name of their God attacking Christians? If I point out the crazy things Obama has done is that me attacking the United States? Yeah the JWs have changed the bible somewhat but they still consider themselves Christians and their bible still contain stories of a Jealous God that kills billions of people.
You say the people that raised me will have to answer for their actions but why should they be punished for doing something they thought their bible told them to do? They didn't raise me that way because they were mean people, they did it because the bible told them to.
I have no problem with a person's personal beliefs as long as it doesn't hurt their children. I have a problem with organized religion because the larger the group, the more they try and enforce their beliefs on others.
I'm sorry you feel this way, but, YOU were the one who said you hated Christians because of the way you were raised by your Christian parents. You agreed with me that JW's changed the original Bible, to write it to their beliefs. I'm not trying to ENFORCE you to believe the way I do, just SHARING my beliefs! My KJV version does tell me though, to take away or add to God's Word is wrong! My Bible tells me to NOT hurt the children. Thank you for your comment & for listening to mine!!

I think peoples relationship with their God, are PERSONAL.

I don't go to church, but I that doesn't mean I don't know the God in my heart!

So there.

When someone breaks into your home how many are going to grab a gun and pray for help? When you are about to slam into another car what thoughts do you have? Do you say OMG? When you are about to slam into a car and it DOESN'T happen? Who stopped it? I have miracle after miracle that you could try and explain away but I know and others who have experienced them know exactly what I'm talking about and that their is certainly a God.
If you ...choose... Free will... A Choice... To deny Him... It's certainly your choice ...but it will also be your biggest loss..(best love you can ever know) and your last regret...

You know good and well that is not true! If evolution was a proven fact they would be so quick to state that and produce the evidevce so it could be called a proven FACT instead of a THEORY!
Here is your opportunity to produce the FACTS!

Christianity is not only following God's Word, but, having a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus! IF you profess to be a Christian & DO NOT HAVE OR SHOW LOVE, then you are not as you say! God expects Christians to KEEP His Ten Commandments, but, above ALL, Jesus says the Greatest Command is to LOVE!! Thank you again for listening to me, but please know that Jesus is LOVE & Not HATE! Not pushing my beliefs on you, only trying to explain why I LOVE GOD & HIS WORD! May God Bless You Abundently!
