If you put millions in a room alone and they all came out with the exact same story, I'd certainly investigate a little more.
Yeah, if you were a psychologist and knew a bit about the brain, you'd study their brains to figure out what triggered the mass delusion, unless there was any solid evidence supporting their story.

This is prophesied in the New Testament. We are told that before the second coming there would be a falling away from the church. We are also told that the heavens will be rolled up as a scroll (God will not directly speak to man. Ie. prophets) for a time. And we are also told there will be a restitution of all things.
I'm not saying He screwed up anything. I'm saying He fulfilled the prophesies.
That sort of makes your notion a failure, without adding anything to it. Since your church is new, the numbers have only swelled, there is no "falling away" at all, during the time that the church actually existed. Thus, either the "prophecy" was incorrect in the order of events, or it was made up.

So, no evidence at all for any assertions you make. Can't say I am not surprised. Thus, your religion is still a myth.

You go on and on about how "bad" it would be to programed to love our "creator."
Tell me what would change if humankind had been created with a built-in desire to worship Yahweh?
What terrible difference would it have made?
Your idea of a "creator" sucks.
We all do have a desire to worship...
Just some (as I did) worship the wrong things!
Your opinion of the Creator would change, If you got to know
Him personally!
Yes and Amen

LOL! You are not forcing anything on topix. Most of your post barely make any sense at all and I usually skip them. I believe I saw one where you used the term 'tard'. I would suggest that you should be ashamed of yourself but I don't think you get the concept.
The title of this thread is "Bible study rules for public schools proposed."
That is what I was referring to. Christians are not content to have the right to worship the way they see fit, they want to make everyone worship the way they see fit. They want to, and have passed laws to force people to do so.
If believing on Christ was all that was necessary then stop trying to force the Government to support your religion. Jesus did not try to force a change in earthly government. Never even suggested it. Follow His example.
Yes I did use the word "Tard"!
The shame would not be on me, as Being a Tard purposely is being ignorant/stupid! That is what it means!
Bible study does go on in our schools, and the proposed rules is what the bill was for!
The Bible has a great history in the US's founding, and growth, and the Lack of it... is our downfall!
Believing otherwise, and denying the evidence of it...
is being a Tard!
Yes and Amen

Those things have NOT happened yet!
"the heavens will be rolled up as a scroll"
This should tell you....
You will NOT be flying to another Planet to populate it...
Don't you think?
Another thing...
Read Revelation... NOWHERE does it say you'll fly off to another plane... NONE of the Bible says that! Only Joseph Smith...

Read the Bible man... throw away the BOM!

<quoted text>Obviously... you've not read my stories... How could I be saved by an imaginary God???
Fact is... I could not!
God is real... Get to know Him...
You will be glad you did!
The only real part was the fact you believed in the god. The idea of god might have made you change your mind.
A Hindu can be saved by their gods, yet of course you would deny they exist. It is all in the mind.

You quit, or didn't really want Christ to begin with!
Christ is still the answer for everything!
First, he is not like me, as he claimed to still be a believer.
He might be losing faith because he sees no god actually helping. But you cannot accept his this due to the claims ancient men made about god.
I lost faith due to knowledge, not any personal issues I had. I came to understand the gods are just claims, and the feelings about the gods are psychological made artificially in the mind.

You have one single idea that is to be the answer to all, Jesus. This is not a check and balance.

You do not seem to understand the concept of checks and balances. So until you do, discussing this is pointless.

"God is a God of order, and so He would want His church to have the same order."
You answered with truth here...
Since Christ's birth to Joseph Smith... 1800 years!
You are saying... God screwed up for 1800 years!
Good luck with that!
... Did God really say....?
Their are over 38,000 different sects of Christianity. Is this what you call order? You do not even think of Catholics as Christians. The history of Christian disputes shows a lot of disorder. It is a testimony to the lack of a holy ghost guiding. It is a testimony to the bible not having consistency.

You use force to keep gay marriage forbidden. These are your superstitious beliefs being forced upon others.
You have the right to not marry your own sex, but that is not good enough for you. You insist others marry as you do.

Nope, that is not accurate. Most religions are actually not spread through indoctrination, look at the ancient ones, particularly those of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Maya, and Inca. They were essentially political parties of those empires for those times, however, they were religions as well. People chose which "god" to follow based entirely on what they agreed with, and the priests of the gods with the most followers had more political power in choosing leaders, dictating policy, and even being the trial judges, depending on the culture in question. They did not use, nor need, indoctrination because it was a very primitive form of Democracy, so to have your voice heard, you had to choose a god in that religion to support.
Most people are in the political party of their parents.
Religion has been tied to politics for as long as religion has been on earth. It is tied to politics in America today.
Reading the bible it is clear to me the so called, prophets, were nothing but politicians using the claim of being able to speak to the gods as a political tool to have authority.

Humans chose based upon what they have been taught.'Indoctrination' is just a description of the teaching.
Political leanings are often of indoctrination.

Did you go on line to jw.org and at the top of the page click on publications then scroll down to the book "What Does The Bible REALLY Teach?". Then scroll down to chapter 11 "Why does God Allow Suffering?"If you have MP3 you can listen to it being read. Please do that before you make any blatant statements based on your personal opinion.
The fact you could not refute my statement tells me a lot.
I am sure your propaganda is great for indoctrinations.

Whoosh. I bet you hear that sound a lot don't you?
What you do to the English language, not to mention logic, in your average post is akin to a car wreck. And since you flood the thread frequently it's like a multi-car pile up. It's hard for most of us to avoid glancing.
