All this site is used for is devils work, Gossip, people on here say that they are Christian's. Guess what? GOSSIP ISN'T GODLY!!

Leviticus 19:16
Do not go about spreading slander among your people.

Proverbs 18:8
The words of a gossip are like wounds, they go down to a man's innermost parts of the belly.

Proverbs 11:13
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.

Proverbs 16:28
A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.

Psalm 34:11-14
Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord, Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

Gossip is defined by things that aren't true. can you PROVE, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that what is contained in the Bible is true?

Of course you can't. Religion is all faith-based and is never based on facts.

I'm not ignorant, thefinaldays. Please prove, beyond a shadow of the doubt, that anything that is said in the Bible is factual.

I'm not saying I don't beleive in the Bible or God or anything of the sort, but the fact of the matter is...religion, any type thereof, is based on faith, not facts. There is a difference. Please tell me you know the difference.

I'm just asking people to open their eyes and look at things differently than the way they've been brought up. Religion can be a great thing, yes. But, one must understand that it is merely based on faith. Nothing else.

But without FAITH there would be no BELIEVERS.

Websters Dictionary defines

FAITH -- Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting solely and implicitly on his authority and veracity; reliance on testimony.

BELIEVE -- To exercise belief in; to credit upon the authority or testimony of another; to be persuaded of the truth of, upon evidence furnished by reasons, arguments, and deductions of the mind, or by circumstances other than personal knowledge; to regard or accept as true; to place confidence in; to think; to consider; as, to believe a person, a statement, or a doctrine.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith." Hebrews 11:6-7

There are many things I don't understand about the Bible, but I would never question if it was real or not. I believe God put us here on Earth for a reason, and that reason will soon be revealed. God also made us the way he saw fit. He chose our race, hair color, eye color, and every feature. He even chose our talents...whether it be cooking, drawing, singing, poetry, and much more.

Don't waste your life gossiping about others and get right with God before its to late!

Get right with God? Can you prove to me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that god is, in fact, real, and, there is eternal life after death?

No you can't. Just like I can't prove to you that the Bible is a fake.

Who's to say that getting right with God is the RIGHT thing to do? It may actually be the WRONG thing to do. There's no way of determining one way or another is fact or fiction.

It's all faith based and that's been my point all along.

Lastly, why is that religions people, namely Christians, look down upon those that don't beleive in the Bible?(Again, I'm not saying that "I" beleive or don't beleive. Im just referring to people in general). Aren't you taught to treat everyone with the same amount of respect and treat others as you would want to be treated? If you read the Bible, you'd see God is a prime example of this. He extended his hand more to those who didn't beleive. Perhaps you should do the same rather than jumping all over people because they like, for whatever reason, to gossip.

We can continue this discussion for days on end. I love discussion as long as it doesn't get into name calling, etc. What's next on the agenda?

Lastly... You said, "God also made us the way he saw fit. He chose our race, hair color, eye color, and every feature."

So, he, I mean He, chooses what color hair each person is born with, etc? Uh, if this is the case, where do genes and the like come into play? Science is a proven fact...unlike religion.

It's a fact that the genes of your parents determine what color your hair is, your eye eye color, whether you have detached or attached ear lobes, etc. God plays no part in that. None.
