Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord! I'll do whatever you want me to do!" Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas -Bill Maher

So in other words its like allowing irrelevant celebrities to fill the empty space between your ears and you buying into it to the point that you begin quoting it as if it has any merit. Point taken.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither Servant nor Free person, neither male nor female, for all of you are one in Yeshua The Messiah.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

http://bible.cc/galatians/3-28.htm

It is about POWER, power over other HUMANS.

In the heaven Jesus was trying to portray, NO ONE will have power over anyone else.

There will be no ruling class, there will be no BOWING in "SUBSERVIENCE" to a master or boss or ruler. there will be no Pecking ORDER.

Religion has been turned into a tool to create SUBSERVIENT OBEDIENT unquestioning SHEEP through the use of FEAR and Mis-Information and Subterfuge.

It has been used to create a laddered pyramid system of Slave to master, Slave to master, Slave to master, Slave to master, Slave to master, Slave to master, to exploit their labor through the sheep's faith in pretty green paper.

People can get on here and say what they want, what the believe, and there reasons... For those who believe and close their eye for the last time, they will do so in peace, for those who don't believe they will be more worried than a stray cat in a dog pound. I will be in peace come my time.

Sorry about your cancer but isn't that "God's Will" for you to have cancer. So if you make it prayers worked but if cancer wins does that mean people didn't pray hard enough or wait that "God's Will" too.

Insert eye roll, whatever gets you through the day. Then if it is God's hand then why use conventional medicine. If God wants you healed he will do it without Chemo.

We don't know why God works as he does. That is where faith comes in. Roll your eyes all you want. I will not be discouraged by you. Who says he won't heal me? Now while I respect your right to your opinion, I will not argue with you. I have a bigger fight on my hands and I don't need negative people or thoughts ruining the good days and the beauty surounding me. God bless.

It is the non-believers that are dangerous. You live your lives with no fear or expectation of anything, and in living that way you fill the world with hatred and violence, rape and murders, bigotry, deceit, adultery, and everything else. If you truly lived a good, God loving life, these things wouldn't exist. But alas, you prefer to mock everything, believing that nothing is going to happen to you. Rest assured of one simple fact though...you WILL die one day, there is no stopping it, it WILL happen. Once you do, would you rather continue on in heated darkness, unable to move, unable to escape, unable to do anything but think back of what got you here...or would you rather be embraced in the loving arms of your Creator, and see friends and family that you knew on the horrid planet that were believers as well? I know that non-believers joke, they say: "At least in Hell it will be a party because all my friends will be there!" No. Hell is not like the movie Little Nicky. But nothing I type will convince you, you are already blinded by sin, by the Devil, and that is too bad. I, along with so many others, wish I could save you. But we can't. You just can't believe in anything greater than yourself. Your body is fragile; a temporary vessel to carry your soul while you make the decisions that will decide ultimately where your soul is going to go. It is weak, it can be destroyed easily... why people believe in it, why they believe that they are so strong, and cannot believe in a greater power, baffles me. It has already been proven that bodies are weak and temporary. But it has NEVER been disproven that Heaven and Hell exist. I don't have to PROVE it to you, for I have faith, you have to DISPROVE it to me, with your fact-finding and negativity, and guess what? You can't. Argue on, it matters not. One day you COULD find the light...unfortunately, you probably won't.

I don't live my life in hatred, nor am I hateful to anyone. I simply made a statement as to the belief in God. If you are healed it is because God answered prayers, if you aren't healed, that is Gods will. Sounds a little like bullshit to me. Maybe the reason one isn't healed they didn't pray hard enough or maybe weren't worthy enough to be healed. My point is, why use conventional medicine? Why not pray to God and leave it in his hands for a cure. Or maybe the reason a person is cured is because of modern medicine and has nothing to do with a God healing someone. So because I bring this up, I am automatically assumed to be a hateful person who encourages rape, murder, and any other bullshit crime. No, wait, the reason those things happen is because God wanted them too.

Why would God leave me and you here for our whole lives with the 3rd or 4th most powerful being ever to exist , The Devil" , as our baby sitter, Who you say is in charge of this world?

It is quite obvious after all these years, those in charge of the churches and governments and industry are corrupt to the core and always have been.

Believe what you want, or shall I shall, don't believe in anything you want. Of course you think things are "BS", you don't live for anything but yourself, and believe in nothing. I am not surprised you have trouble believing in anything that seems different. It is ok, you can continue on your path of nothingness, for as you do nothing and believe in nothing, nothing is what you are going to get not only in life, but in afterlife as well.

Wow those are loving words by a "Christian". I'm pretty sure Jesus would have loved me, unlike your hatred filled heart. Calling someone nothing because they don't have the same belief system as you is not how the good book tells you to live. You seem to be very judgmental assuming I only live for myself. It is actually quite the opposite. I am not only more giving than you I am also more accepting. I would never call you a nothing because you believe in something that I don't. Maybe if you want to preach the "word" start practicing what you preach!!

How many human lives are worth just one soul?
Is Jeffery Dahmer in Heaven, or Hell?
Anybody who worships a god that teaches that SAVING HUMAN LIVES is not as important as believing in some barbaric blood sacrifice is SICK IN THE HEAD!
Anybody who worships a god that kills babies to punish their parents for their leaders disobedience SERIOUSLY needs to reevaluate their life!
Anybody whose lives revolve around something that happens after you are DEAD is a DEATH WORSHIPER!
The very idea of some afterdeath "soul" undermines the true tragedy of death, and undermines every facet of the beautiful defiant creativity and defiant curiosity of life itself!
