The christian cult's morals are that they do not kill or steal because their god is watching but they rape children because the bible does not say they can not do that

Regarding "miracles"...
When someone is saved from certain death by a strange succession of circumstances, they say that's a "miracle."
But of course if someone is KILLED by a freak chain of events..being in the wrong place at the wrong time.. that must also be a "miracle."
Look at all those people who decided "what a nice day to go to the beach"...and ended up being killed by a tsunami.
All of those who were on the planes that were hijacked and flown into the Twin Towers.
"Miracles??" Yep.
"Just because it's not nice doesn't mean it's not miraculous." --Terry Pratchett
But, but that would mean it is "gods" fault when these things happen. That would mean it is gods fault people starve and children get beaten to death, gods fault when people get killed in horrible accidents, why it would also be gods fault when people commit crimes..........

This "Imaginary Friend ,as you call him,is my Best Friend.

This Imaginary Friend has helped me resolve some Real life problems
that I've had to face when no one else was able to help me

But ,that is what Best Frieds are for..

This Imaginary Friend has also made me become very aware of the many faults I posses,has helped me deal with them and has given me a Peace of mind that I had never experienced before.
As he said" My Peace I leave with You,not as the world knows it"

He has been my Friend and advisor.
The only payment he requires is that I be obedient to his teachings,which have proven themselves to be excellent.
let me ask you ;
Do you have a friend that you can compare to my "Imaginary Friend"?

Why would a Gaytanic Priest care about children starving or being beaten? Don't you sacrifice them on your gods alter? Or do you just have Gaytanic sex there?

<quoted text>I'm not saying this is the case with your ear story but as a JW growing up we had all kinds of weird demon stories and we use to repeat them as we were there and saw it. One of them was about Smurfs being demonic and a JW who's child brought one home from school saw it walking around. Lots of JWs have claimed to see Smurfs move, not just the one. Then there are books that won't burn or music albums that were also fire retardant because it was Devil music. I've even have a few of my own stories of weird things that would happen and I believed it to be demons. Looking back now tho I feel pretty stupid for actually believing those things but I was taught to believe that way.

Can I ask if most Mormons know about the ear story or is it just a small local to you amount? I guess what I'm asking is if I meet a Mormon and ask them about a child's ear being reattached then will they know what I'm talking about?
Most Mormons probably will not know about this instance. He told his family and close friends and I'm sure his wife did too. But they didn't want this to be something that drew a lot if attention to their family.

Heheheeee... you are a smart cookie.

"God" is either a sadistic bastard or non-existant.
Let's give "him" the benefit of the doubt and go with the second choice.

If you "know that there is a God", it's not that you don't "need" faith. It's that you don't HAVE faith. You never "need" faith.

I am quite aware of what you've convinced yourself of. You don't need to keep reiterating what you believe. Every logical person here has explained why the basis of your belief would be insufficient as proof.

I will add that I could walk up to any given three year old, pretend to pull a penny out of their ear, and if I was pretty smooth they would be completely convinced that I just pulled a penny out of their ear. What they thought they saw would be enough to convince them. And they would probably argue with people that told them otherwise.

why do we have poodles, yorkies, pit bulls, wolves, and coyotes on top of that. cuz they are all of the same species in the tree. the same as lions, tigers, cheetahs, and cougars are all the same thing as the little siamese kitten. the monkeys and apes that are here now also evloved from that same ancestor and they evolved in there own direction the same as we did. it takes very little to see what im sayin here if u just look at DNA.

So you have a crayon drawing from a child as evidence. Your standards for evidence are too low to consider you a thinking person.

This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth.—Matt. 24:14.
This earth-wide witness work regarding God’s Kingdom is being done on an ever-increasing scale. Today, over 7,500,000 Witnesses of Jehovah, associated with more than 107,000 congregations throughout the earth, are preaching about God’s Kingdom, even as Jesus made it the theme of his preaching and teaching.(Matt. 4:17) As a result of our present-day preaching work, great comfort is being given to mourning ones. Why, in two recent years, a total of 570,601 individuals were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses! The great scope of this preaching work can best be appreciated by noting that Jehovah’s Witnesses now translate and distribute Bible literature in over 500 languages. Nothing like this has ever been seen in all human history! The existence, work, and growth of the earthly part of Jehovah’s organization are truly extraordinary. w11 10/15 4:5, 6

Why I generally distrust Mormon scholars

When I was growing up in the Mormon Church, I liked the Church but didnÂ’t really have a testimony of it. I wanted to really know if the Church was true. I prayed about it after reading the BofM and didnÂ’t receive any confirmation either way.

I went to the LDS bookstore and bought several books written by Mormon scholars. One that had a profound impact on me was the book The Book of Mormon on Trial by Jack West.

It gave some pretty convincing evidence that the BofM was true. It showed all these big statues in Central and South America that were Egyptian as evidence that people had come across the ocean like the BofM said. It recounted conversations with Native Americans ,who when asked what the name of a local mountain was, they said “Nephihah” and when asked what the name of a river was, they said “Moronihah”.

That was proof to me as these are the very names given as cities and lands in the BofM. There was no way Joseph could have known that. Books like this one really helped give me a testimony that the Church was true. Why would I even think to question that a book I bought at the Church Bookstore, written by a Mormon scholar would be anything less than truthful?

In wasnÂ’t until many years later that I tried to verify the claims of the book to find out that the author, Jack West, made this stuff up. There are no Native Americans that knew those places as Nephihah and Moronihah.

Those pictures of ancient statues that he said were Egyptian were actually Aztec. I was pretty unnerved to find out I had bolstered my testimony on lies made up by a Mormon scholar that seemed to believe that ‘the ends justifies the means’.

Get people to believe any way you can seemed to be his philosophy. Or maybe he just wanted to sell books and made up stuff to make his case for the BofM stronger than it really was. Current LDS apologists like Kerry Shirts candidly admit Jack West and other zealous LDS authors made stuff up in their books.

There is no excuse to lie. I haven't seen this particular author. Thanks for sharing. I'm sorry that this person left you with a distaste for all Mormon scholars.

In reference to post 101219 - SP

The Bible is, and always was, the only Word of God, providing, in it’s own words, a lamp to our feet, and a light to our paths. The Bible is our only sure guide to heaven, containing all the counsel and guidance we need along what is often a long and difficult journey. As Paul said …

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”(2 Timothy 3:16).

However the Bible contains both Old and New Testaments, each with seemingly different teachings and commands, which has led to more than a little confusion for those that have not grasped the seamless relationship between the Old and New Testaments. Many Christians struggle with the tension between the Old Testament emphasis on regulations, and the New Testament emphasis on grace, and are not clear what our relationship to the Old Testament should be, especially when it comes to the Old Testament Laws (particularly the Ten Commandments), and the keeping of the Sabbath and/or other Feasts of the Old Covenant.

For example the Ten Commandments, held in high regard by most Christians, are often prominently displayed on the walls of courtrooms, school rooms, and churches, which leads one to suspect that the vast majority of people (both Christian and non-Christian) believe that the Ten Commandments are foundational laws that all Christians are to conform to.
Which then leaves out the vast majority of the laws of the Old Testament and the question of what we are supposed to make of them. Are any of them applicable to the Christian world? And if so, how are we supposed to decide which are still in effect. What criteria is to be used in making the determination as to which of the laws we follow, and which of them we ignore. There are usually two main schools of thought on the subject.

Some Christians will tell you that the Ten Commandments are timeless moral laws which apply to all Christians for all time, while the rest of the law is not applicable to Christians today.

Others have endeavored to rationalize their beliefs about which of the laws are to be obeyed by making a distinction between ceremonial, civil and moral laws, the last category supposedly the only one that is still to be observed.
Ceremonial, Civil And Moral Laws?
Those that believe that the content of the law is the criterion by which we make our decision as to which of the Mosaic laws are valid for today, also run into huge problems. For starters it has to be noted that no such distinction occurs in Scripture…. they have been imposed on the text from outside the text. In any case deciding which category many of the laws fall into, is not as easy as some may think. Any one who gives the matter some thought will realize that the Sabbath law in the Ten Commandments is not a moral law but very clearly a ceremonial one… moral and ceremonial commandments often found mixed together in the Old Testament. Also consider…

Jesus identified Leviticus 19:18 (“You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself”) as the second greatest commandment ever. However this verse was directly followed by the commands to not breed together two kinds of your cattle, nor sow fields with two kinds of seed, nor wear clothing woven of two kinds of material" (19:19). Yet many have decided that verse 18 is a timeless moral law, therefore applicable to 21st century Christianity, while commandments in the very next verse are civil law, and therefore can be rejected
However, while instructions on sowing your field may sound like a civil law, it really wasn’t.

Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is basically about two groups of peoples that lived in the Americas some 1,000 years apart. They were steel-smelting, chariot-driving, temple-building people that grew so numerous that 2 Million people died in a single battle. Yet there is absolutely no evidence that any of these people ever existed.

The BofM is not backed up by any archeological, anthropological or linguistic evidence. There is no evidence of any Hebrew culture in the Americas as you would expect from descendants of Israel as is the premise of the BofM.

DNA evidence indicate that the natives of the Americas originated from Siberia, and probably came across the Bering Strait, just as scientists have thought for decades and not from the Middle East.

Isn’t it strange that we have found much evidence of many other cultures that existed in the Americas like the Aztecs, Mayans,Toltecs, etc. yet not a single Nephite coin, steel sword, armor, or ‘Reformed Egyptian‘ writing has ever been found which is unbelievable considering the span of Jaredites, Nephites & Lamanites which numbered in the millions over the almost 3,000 years that these various peoples reportedly flourished.

http://www.exmormonscholarstestify.org/stephe...
I refer you to the FARMS website to see that there is some evidence of the BOM people.
