I don't. It's a great historical record. All the god stuff is a result of broken brains.

The greatest weakness of humanity. Having faith in something imaginary helps you get through hard times and makes you feel good.
Human nature is to look down on others to make you feel better about yourself and your own shortcomings and the bible always provides...

I cannot, with a clear conscience, say I do not believe in God. I do. But I also cannot argue with you on those points, except that I'm not so sure the Bible encourages us to look down on others to feel better about ourselves. I think that's just the way too many people interpret it. If that's not what you meant, my apologies.

The bible provides the reason, the "sin" that believers use to look down on others, the "sinners". That reminds me, I forgot to mention the hypocrisy...

I have been a christian all my life. I read the bible, took my confirmation classes, personally kneeled and asked Jesus into my heart. I have never looked down on people I never thought of myself as better than anyone. In fact I put my Faith in action many times helping others in need. You ask for truth in the bible, I can't answer that, I just put faith in it as you all put faith in something you believe in.

"I have never looked down on people I never thought of myself as better than anyone." It's good to hear something rational from a true Christian for a change! Please spend some time influencing your fellow "Christians" to be as friendly and accepting as you are. If only more were like you...

That is fine. Everyone should strive to be best person they can be. If you need an outside source to place your faith, so you can be a good person, great. What upsets people is your belief that because you have faith in an invisible being, everyone should have faith the same as yours. The fundamental Christian beliefs automatically assumes a superior attitude. You believe I will go to hell for not believing like you, a bad place. You believe you are going to heaven, a good place. You automatically assume you are good and I am bad and need saving. I believe in myself. I have faith in me, that I will be the best person I can be. I don't need a go-between for my salvation. I have achieved salvation, here and now, in myself. I don't believe I am better than you for it. I don't believe I get a special place that others don't.
If there is an after life scenario that requires a form of judgement, it will probably be based on you, not what you worship.

I too have been a Christian most of my life. I choose to have faith in the bible and my beliefs. I don't push my faith on anyone or judge anyone. What does upset me tho is how harsh SOME of the people who don't believe are. I have seen MANY threads on here with people who don't believe bashing those of us who do in many different ways. The same goes for some of those who claim to believe. We all can only live our lives the way that we decide too. Being mean and hateful to someone bc of what they believe doesn't justify anything. Accepting that its ok for someone to believe differently than u do is completely justifiable. I just wish more people....believers and non believers alike...could see that.

There is no evil no good. Both are perceptions of reality.

I actually read the bible and never let anyone interpret something else into it. The bible basically explains sin in the old testament. The new testament explains the Forgiveness of sin and how get forgiveness. Which is ask, be repentant of your sins and believe in your heart that Jesus is our savior. It's that simple. I do not like Christians that Judge or look down on people that choose not to believe. That's opposite of what Jesus wanted. He wants Christians to show others love through his word. And through our actions invite those who want the blood of Christ to show them the way.

Going by that logic, there's no difference in molesting a two-year-old child and saving one's life. Either can be good or evil depending on how you look at it. OK, got it.
