Nothing wrong to base your beliefs on faith IMO. Not all religions or modes of worship appeal to everyone - some people need an anthropomorphized human deity to direct their energies to, and some people (like me) don't. I think ultimately it leads you to the same place - the only difference is that in my path I try not disparage other's habits unless provoked, while certain other posters do (in a logically inane attempt to rationalize their habits and path).
That all said, if those certain other posters would just give up their rationalizations and accept faith for what it is, perhaps they would be a better person by not disparaging other's belief systems.
Organized religion is just one huge glass house IMO - with separate apartments - silly to throw stones at your neighbor.
What constitutes provocation?

True what you have said about Jesus.
But, how come satanists, perverts, mass murderers and criminals like the biblical David are anointed as kings?
Think a bit before you post.
Use the little intelligence that you possess in an unbiased and in a rational manner.
Ok?
Too easy. He was anointed king because he was so good at killing Philistines. In general, that is how anyone gets to be a king, barring some moistened bint lobbing a scimitar at you...

rabbee: well according to, the context any better. indicates that i do not see any difference, between your faith and his. they both, appear to be untrue in equal opposition.

and the belief of the existence of HaMosheeach, comes from TheTorah. whether it be considered as Noach, Avraham, Moshe, or Adam. with Adam One having the stronger case, of being made in THE-OUR IMAGE And LIKENESS of G-D, than adam's two two... and of course it gets perverted, by fallible men. this is why this world, is so screwed up here in TheTorah again...

and i do not need faith, to know The-Existence of HaShem G-D, or that what they say shall happen shall happen here in TheTorah. that ain't happening the way, this whole world is all lying about it.

since i failed to believe, in G-D that day. because the whole world has failed, to give to their children Only The Uncorrupted Torah as commanded. this world teaches their children, how to fail G-D their own idol not here in TheTorah way.

since G-D said everyone on earth, has become a liar. i have no one else to trust, here in TheTorah again. what am i to do, when G-D takes of for the day of rest again? and i can't even trust, my assigned mate. i mean this world and their grandmother chaooah has already betrayed me, two going on three complete Torot Times.

and leading people away from the right place, will never get you to the right place. and when you get to a fork in the road, your even more forked.

You live in a rented apartment all these years?
Surprising.
Given your advanced age and single status, I think it would be better to stay put in your rented pad than to make an outright purchase of real estate which would be a waste of money.
Wishing you the very best in life.
rabbee: well i used to live in a house, before the divorce. but house payments are now cheaper than, my apartment rent by quite a bit. plus i am paying for the appreciation, of their property value not mine. so actually it does make sense, to purchase a house. a house payment would be only about half, of what i am paying in rent here near downtown Denver for a one bedroom apartment.

rabbee: well i am quite proficient, in repairs and maintenance. i am also a proficient carpenter, since i did the finishing of two of the houses i once owned. and having worked as a government scientist, at SERI i am quite familiar with inspection of homes and active, passive solar instillations and structural integrity. i also at one time, was a licensed electrician, machinist, and tool and die maker. and quite an accomplished, plumbing, HVAC, apprentice and auto-mechanic.

LOL.

This King David of the Tanach was an evil man.

The other patriarchs were no better.

And fools consider these barbarians "men of divine revelations".

I can imagine the kind of degraded inborn instincts they passed on to their future generations.

Aside from the noble Buddha - despite being ignorant and deluded as he was in many ways - no other scriptural personality qualifies for prophethood. The rest who people label "prophets" were rogues - either mass murderers, satanists, diabolical sorcerers, megalomaniacs, fanatics, thieves and/or sex perverts.

Really?

Don't make me laugh at your stupidity.

I have no problem if you're content being a dunce in Math and in logical thinking.

Above all be a good human being and shed your fanaticism and tribalism.

Improve. Fast.

RAGAS & MANTRAS:

In Indian classical music that has no peer in the world of music, a raga (pronunciation - raag) is a musical piece with the words and music composed in such a way that they mimic the natural rhythms of the human nervous system or of any natural phenomenon like rain, fire, sadness, happiness, peace, thunder, etc. If rendered in its pure form, the raga can evoke the natural rhythms of the said subject. Ordinary human beings make a mess when they attempt to compose a raga. Only a rishi or a sage who's in tune with the natural rhythms can compose a raga. Similarly, a mantra is a natural sound that mimics the natural rhythms of a specified plane/state of consciousness.

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF SAME-SEX-MARRIAGE!!!+++++++ God has changed His mind regarding Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengence!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I myself, is a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.

Shavua Tov, y'all. I see the chief crazy has run out of Thorazine and has come back for group therapy.

To be honest, when I hadn't seen him for a while I assumed suicide.

The Messianic Jews face many challenges in the present and future. They are a gentle charitable group. They stand firm with Isreal and should be afforded respect.

rabbee: don't care how true you are to each other, to jews, or to Ysrael. if it is not true to G-D, here in TheTorah it's all vanity.

and pretending that your words, are equal to or greater than G-D'S is still blasphemy. TheOnly Word of G-D, given to anyone on this planet is called TheTorah. everything else is from, fallible vain men in vain perspective.

the new testament tanach, the christian new testament, and the muslim new testament quran, are not TheWord of G-D. and tend to be vain and bigoted, to their own classifications. everything from men, contains their own vanity versions of pretend trueness. none of your words, are equivalent or superior to G-D'S.

Another Grade 7 Math question :

How would you expand (3a - 4b)^15 without using the binomial expansion formula?

Show all the working steps.

.
But I never asked you your opinion regarding the truthfulness. Just like I never solicited the evangelical Christian's opinion. Why would I?

The point is tolerance. We are all a part of the greater picture. Intolerant people only serve to alienate themselves, by definition.
