So?
ENLIGHTENED Churches are SUPPOSED to be like that-spiritual medical offices for those in need!
if that is all the church is then why are they tryin to dictate laws and regulations against anything that their book is against (abortion, gay rights, etc...). if churches were doin like u say they should be there then i wouldnt say a thing against the religion but they are far from that. they all do the same things the rest of the world does but they just hide it and cover it up then condemn the ones that are brave enuf to stand up say that they are wrong and that everyone should be treated equal. religion equals non democratic and very unequal. u are either part of the group or u are hell bound and persecuted by them for the same things they do in private (priest molesting kids and covering it up). the church needs to decide what they are and what they stand for and do it instead of being hypocrits, either follow all the bible or throw it all out becuz the bible itself says god is never changing so u cant just cherry pick what u want.

Christians who cry out, "It's wrong to judge," are ignoring the context of the passage (Matt. 7:1-2), which does not forbid judging, but instead insists on judgment according to God's word. In addition, a judgmental criticism of judgment is self-refuting.
Judge NOt lest you want o be judged right back!!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps it comes as no surprise to learn that there is little preaching against sin from today’s pulpits. And those churches, who do voice their opposition against such lifestyles, rarely do anything to actually hold Christians accountable for their behavior.

Sit back and think about this;

Does God defend sin or does Jesus? So why do Christians? The bible has many scriptures saying to go and sin no more. John 5:14

dodge much? no one can say it is my fault if i go to hell becuz its my choice about where i go. ill make it easy and go ahead and say i dont want to go to hell so im goin to heaven. now its up to god to force me in to hell. i will not go in on my own choice and i do not believe in him either. therefore if i go to hell it is not my choice but it is in fact the choice of your god to putme there becuz i didnt give in to the bullying style love he shows us in his book.
That's NOT My GOd-that's YOUR God.

MY God allows me to have accountability for MYSELF, including responsibility for My OWN actions and behavior.

And that suits Me just FINE.

God's holy spirit didn't compel Solomon from hanging around whores and raping young virgins and taking them as wives. I have to give it to Solomon for writing a book to make him look holier than thou like some memorial countries make for mass murders to look good.

Maybe Solomon just had a scribe write it and make it look good to spare the life of the scribe and his family from a burn sacrifice to God. Possible he just killed the scribe anyway to keep him quite.

People are people no matter what the race, creed or color.

I REFUSE to apply Any ignorant lump and labelDUHM BIGOTRY in my life and hate or JUDGE people based upon their race, CREED or color.

Because anything else is just EXTREMISM, as in IMBALANCED, IRRATIONAL, ILLogical and just plain old OFF in the head.

One of Satan's most deceptive and powerful ways of defeating us is to get us to believe lies.

You have to have courage, to be obedient to God. Most people don't even like the word obedience used in life.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
Better to listen to the new Pope than to read the Bible. The Pope is nicer than God even.
and the Pope is real.

that is one version of God, from right wing extremists. it seems that some of the folks on here are not quite that horrible in their beliefs and in their views about the God they believe in. And in the real world there are other believers in a version of God that is much nicer than what we generally see on topix. They just seem to be much more quiet. The rightwing extremists in politics and religion are the noisy ones now, unfortunately the media augments their voices.

I do not think you can prove that there is a true statement about God or Satan. It is all opinion, including whether they exist. It is tough enough to be an effective kind person, but it is worth it. To be obedient to a lot of nonsense that some fool claims is God's word can be easier in some cases, or more difficult in other cases, than being a kind person. But being kind is better than being mean and claiming God told you to be mean. The rightwing extremists are the ones who prefer being nasty and claiming to obey God. Just look at the gOP legislative record everywhere - stealing food, votes, and health care from poor people. They are trying to get votes from socalled Christians!

i agree with u 100% about treating ppl all equal but from what u say here it is easy to see u are no follower of the god of the Old or New Testament becuz both books endorse slavery of all races except Jewish unless u are Jewish yourself then u can only enslave a fellow jew for a certain amount of yrs but all other races can be slaves til they die. your last sentence there proves that u think god of the holy bible is irrational, illogical and off in the head and once again i agree 100% with that statement as well.
