Anybody who reads the bible can understand what God wants from us and what he wants us to do. His words tell us to teach others and tells us for instance how to worship properly and how to handle problems that life may throw at us.
I can understand it alright - violent, erroneous and ambiguous.

<quoted text> If you saw someone doing something that was harmful to them, wouldn't you intervene in helping them. This is no different than what I'm doing. I see someone who is lost and I tell them first that they are lost because it's important to be totally honest with them. I then proceed to show them why their lost and show them how to get out of being lost, this is what I'm doing, I am not judging and God commands we do take action to help someone who is lost There are those who seem to think that it is always wrong to judge because Jesus said, "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1). We can know with certainty, however, that this was definitely not what Jesus meant. We know this because He also said, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24). Therefore we are not only permitted but commanded to judge. But our judgments must be righteous not unrighteous.. This is what I do, as your soul is important to me, just as it is to God. Yes I do have evidence to back it up. Did God make up the Baptist church, the catholic church, the Pentecostal church, the Episcopalian church, the Methodist church and all these others you see popping up everyday on a corner near you, yes this is my evidence because if you think God made these churches up you're deceiving yourself, these were made up by men , all of them. Do you see a Baptist church mentioned in the bible, NO YOU DON'T. You do see a Church of Christ, yes you do, because that's the Church Jesus built and it's easy to see because we worship the way the bible says to worship, that makes the Church of Christ the true church of the bible. Does your church worship the way the bile says? Do you even know how the church of the bible is suppose to worship, I bet you don't.

There is but one church, not two, and with that said I am considered radical by you, then so be it, but I'd rather be considered radical and tell the truth, than not tell the truth. You speak always as I am on this mission alone, but remember this, their are millions of Christians who walk with me, and you know this to be a fact, to say you don't would be a lie.
Ok, so let's look at this like I believe Jesus would.

I think you would agree that Christians would be known by their fruits, I.e., their lives would show it through their service and love to others.

Do you or your coven work with the homeless by providing them a warm place to stay, food for their hunger and clothes when they need it? Do you or your den of vipers provide social services to the poor of the community such as school supplies for inner city children, a place for the poor to get coats, clothes and food when they need it? Do you or your hive tutor school children, provide mentors for them, free clinics and dentistry when they need it? Do you or your hovel of hobbits help homeless people find jobs and provide a place for them to live free of charge for 6 months until they can get on their feet? Do you or your troop of trolls provide free drug and alcohol counselors to those without insurance who truly want to get clean? Do you or your gaggle of goblins provide family services like marriage counseling, family counseling and parenting skills for those who can not afford it? AND do you or your cavern of kooks do these things with no expectations in return but because you see a need and your love of The Lord makes you want to do it?

I doubt it, I know where you go to church and your "service to the community" is to tell everybody who doesn't go to your sect of radical church that they are going to hell. Oh you may have some catchy and cute sayings on your sign like "God answers knee mail" or "The Bible....Gods text message to you". But if you had a bunch of our homeless guys walk in your church on Sunday you would think they stink, they have on dirty clothes, they smell like they were drinking last night, etc, etc, etc.

You come into a REAL church of people who love Jesus with their actions not just their words and you see blacks, whites, homeless and professionals worshiping side by side and taking their Christianity to the community instead of waiting for the community to shower, dress appropriately and sober up before they come in.

By the way, these things happen at my church AND we clap, raise our hands, have praise teams. Which church do you think Jesus would call HIS church?

I mean no disrespect when I say this but you are completely wrong! Personal doctrine/beliefs should be kept personal. If spoken of outside of the church it's fair game. If you feel as though you should teach/spread the "word" of god, you shouldn't have a problem with people presenting an alternative, especially if your belief has any truth to it. Fact is anything that's true can withstand criticism and your religious belief is not one of those things. Forget about all the violence and discrimination auntie talks about. Christians and other believers claim to go by a book that has all the answers and have yet to substantiate any evidence to support the claims. If religion can't compete with skepticism then it should be discarded. Religious beliefs should not be given a free pass because. Religious beliefs are a mental disease that limits not only freedom but also freedom of thought. That is very evident because believers are taught to not question god. Christians have no problem accepting the bible or a belief in god on FAITH, but will not accept EVIDENCE presenting by science, i.e evolution. Religion is not beyond criticism and is not due any respect.

Science is not out to disprove god, it's more along the lines of observing and explaining the world around us.

Skeptic you have a right to your opinion. My post was aimed to the person who claims Everyone including yourself must be CoC. I'm not saying we must all be the exact doctrine. No disrespect to you but this was intended to a believer.
I'll believe in God forever. I've seen and witnessed too much to Not Ever Believe. You would need to sit down with me to talk to fully understand my stance. It's so hard to post comments to convey faith.
Ridicule me if you want. I follow Jesus not man.:)

Skeptic I need to add this as well. I mean no disrespect to folks who wish to not believe. So I don't understand your remark saying you feel the need to disprove my belief if I post something outside of church. If I said something to support your non belief, you wouldn't have responded to my post. This is one of those, I agree to disagree times.
Ummm, free speech & freewill.

Many of my FB friends are religious lunatics. I like them just the same. However, some of the shit they post and share is nutty as they come. Some post their bar pics on their wall along with their churchy pics. lol

<quoted text>Skeptic, it seems to me that your third sentence is suggesting that christians should not have the same freedom of speech to talk about their faith outside of church. Isn't that the agenda of atheist, to close the mouth of christians? Religious beliefs have never been classified as a 'mental disease'. That is your opinion and without science fact. As for myself, if there is a God it seems (to me) that he has dropped the ball on a few things, but if he's real I suppose he knows what and why he does what he does. I believe in science also, but it appears that you have made science your religion.
I don't know if that's good or bad bc science has made many a good blunders in the past, and I'm sure they will continue to do so in the future. And yes, I'm aware that science has also made great strides throughout history and will also do so in the future.
I'm an atheist and I have no agenda. I was not suggesting that christians have their freedom of speech surpressed in any way. While in the "house" of worship their beliefs are respected and shared by many. Once outside of the church they should not expect anyone to respect their beliefs because they are not above criticism. Religious beliefs are a mental disease because they suppress critical thinking. People apply critical thinking to just about every aspect of life, but when it comes to religion critical thinking stops at the door. Just in case you weren't aware science is NOT a religion. I was using science as an example of people turning away from evidence to believe something that presents no evidence. I agree that science is wrong at times but it is self correcting especially when new information is brought to light.

I apologize but I see nowhere in any post I've made that I feel the need disprove your belief. I have and will continue to respond to all posters christians and atheist. Example a while back, I'm not sure which forum I disagreed with the thought another non believer had that babies are atheists too. Believe it or not it's something to be learned from everyone whether they believe in god or not, but I must add this is not one of those times to agree to disagree :)
