Ask yourself... Why would God NOT talk to His people???
It doesn't say He won't in the Bible...
In fact it does say in Joel, that He'll pour out His spirit on ALL flesh!
Do you have flesh??? If so, I'll bet it's something else blocking it!
May the Lord lead you in all Righteousness!
Amen!
True, God sure does talk to people. President Bush said God talked to him so why wouldn't he talk to you guys as well.

"President Bush said to all of us:'I am driven with a mission from God'. God would tell me,'George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did. And then God would tell me 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq'. And I did."

Mr Bush went on: "And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me,'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East'. And, by God, I'm gonna do it."

No need to get all defensive. Sorry but I don't buy into the fact that God talks to you or anyone else for that matter. I figured that you just go around, posting your same lies over and over on any board that discusses religion and it seems as if I was right.
I thought Paul was very clear on a woman's role in religion. Sit down, shut up and obey your man. I find it strange that a woman hating God would tell you to 'judge the 12 tribes', is that what you claim he said?
I think you have put the cheese on the cracker for the apostle amber. I have doubts this person is even a female by the responses posted especially posting a email. I will save my tithe in my savings account instead.

Ha, well I'm not the crazy JW Known Fact, I just thought I would use his name for a little while. Kind of blend in with the crazies. Yeah, you're probably right that AA is male, you can't really believe anything someone says any more. The fact that we have Google at our finger tips then there's no excuse for buying into BS. I'm sure a lot of people buy his story hook line and sinker. I'm sure they will at some point ask for a donation so they can plant that 100 dollar seed. What a joke.

Sin? That's one of those words that doesn't actually mean anything because it doesn't refer to a real thing.

It's in good company because there are plenty of other meaningless words that also fail to refer to something real. Words like:

Sin, blasphemy, heaven, hell, holy ghost, Jehovah, Jesus, salvation, damnation, Satan, etc.

Really???

See...
You do not know what is right, or wrong, and spout hate
for what your are clueless about!
If the main bathroom is occupied then I have no problem with a boy using the girls room.

I certainly don't need any invisible sky pixie to tell me what's right and wrong.

Amongst other things, your religion means defending genocide and infanticide. It means you approve of the murder of homosexuals, as well as anyone else who wishes to exercise religious freedom.

Furthermore, you base your whole moral system on an unproveable supernatural being. You've already demonstrated that this means you're prepared to kill for those morals.

You'll excuse me if I prefer the foundation of good solid non-belief for building my ethics. My morals can be based on verifiable common interests, known causes and known consequences.

Except your god's great plan is a failure. Of all the humans who have ever lived and who are yet to live - only a small amount will end up in heaven.

And your last statement is a bit ironic, in that you, Duquette and other atheist whiner types, certainly cannot whine about "contradictions" on that one....because that IS what is written-no "contradictions" there now is there.
POST OT-(IE: The Golden Rule and similar attributes of)
"Thou shalt not harm others" (via hateful gossip, lies or physical harm against them)
and then-
from OT dark age era -
“I the LORD thy God am a jealous God”(Exodus 20:5)

BIG Difference.
Just more from the OT-on the IMPERFECTIONS of humanity through out civilization as we know it, and the ways of the same. Good reading for thought however, on characteristics worthy only of AVOIDENCE in cultivating ones self.
WHY I personally have no special regard for the OT when it comes to it being any sort of "model of human behavior".
Because it's not. NOT at all.
Consider this:

A perfect and omniscient entity like the god of the Bible (who we hear is positively overflowing with love for his people) creates a primitive and barbaric justice system and expects his creation to enact it.

or

A primitive and barbaric people produce tales of a primitive and barbaric god who wants his followers to follow a primitive and barbaric justice system. Which, co-incidentally, is the only kind of justice these people know.

I know which one I would opt for.

That's nothing but a "grand delusion" in itself.
I don't expect any god to step in and save the children and babies because I don't believe in any gods.

However Y and A doesn't only believe in his god but he also believes his god personally stepped in and helped him out.

When Y and A sees the thousands of children and babies that die every day, he must think that his god values his life far more than he values theirs.

I'm not a scientist but when it comes to explaining our reality I do believe in the unparalleled success of the scientific method.

Just because it hasn't found answers for everything doesn't mean the answer is superstition and myth.

They don't but your belief in them shows how low you set the bar when it comes to evidence of your god.

From your bible - cleansing ritual for lepers.

Get two birds. Kill one. Dip the live bird in the blood of the dead one. Sprinkle the blood on the leper seven times, and then let the blood-soaked bird fly away.

Next find a lamb and kill it. Wipe some of its blood on the patient's right ear, thumb, and big toe. Sprinkle seven times with oil and wipe some of the oil on his right ear, thumb and big toe.

Repeat.

Finally, find another pair of birds. Kill one and dip the live bird in the dead bird's blood. Wipe some blood on the patient's right ear, thumb, and big toe. Sprinkle the house with blood 7 times.

There - that's all there is to it

<quoted text>You reject all of it!
Read the Bible without hate...
The Book of Daniel tells of today, and His return!
The whole Bible tells of Christ!
Your rejection is on you... Not God!
Hang on a minute. You're referring to the Old Testament and by your own admission, you don't follow it's rules.

The books that make up the Old Testament belong to the Jews, not the Christians. Those OT *prophecies*(I use the term loosely) were made by the Jews. It's their religion, not yours.

Ask a Jew whether Christ fulfilled those prophecies and you'll get a quite different answer to the one you want to hear. Who are you to tell the Jews that their belief system is wrong and that they're not interpreting their own scriptures properly? Christians see the whole Jewish mythology as little more than a dress rehearsal for their own mythology.

Anyway. Many people who know the Bible far better than you or I, state that Daniel was written around the time of the Maccabean Revolt (approx 160 BCE).

I trust you're also aware that Daniel contradicts other scriptures.

What does Daniel have to say about why we suffer?

As far as Daniel is concerned, humans suffer because of forces (beasts) opposed to God and his followers. The *righteous*(another word I use loosely) behaviour of God's followers leads to their persecution and suffering. This is in Daniel 7:18 & 7:27.

Now check out Amos 3-5 where you'll see that people suffer because it's caused by God on the people who have broken his rules.

So, a quick recap here and you'll see that in Daniel it's God's enemies who cause suffering and in Amos it's God himself who causes it.

What does Daniel have to say about how suffering ends?

Well, Daniels says it will end very soon when God destroys the evil that's at large and leaves the way clear for his kingdom to be created.

What does Amos say about how the suffering ends?

Amos doesn't say it will end soon. All he says is that it will be at some point in the future and will be when the people repent.

In Daniel suffering is to end very soon when God personally intervenes and destroys the evil forces that are arrayed against him.

In Amos it's none of that and suffering will end when the people return to God.

Damn those biblical contradictions!

Yes a joke and google is one of the tools to debunk and help those in a cult to think they may be fooled by charlatans.

Example:
"I'm praying to Jesus to bless these ink pens and to those who will donate money to build a christian ministry in north korea for the unsaved children souls that has been denied the water of life. I will sent each and every one of you these blessed ink pens with baby Jesus picture on them for you donation "

How many I wonder would send money. A lawyer that appears on T.V. holding a bible in his hand to show clients he is a honest and righteous man.

How many of those starving children do you help???
Is it your choice to gripe about it, or do something about it?
Go easy on the hyperbole

Perhaps you should check out the dictionary and read the definition of "baby" before you spout more made-up statistics.

I regularly give to charity and donate money on telethons and appeals. Your god is supposedly omnipotent. That means saving the world's starving children is probably easier for him than blinking is for us.

Putting things in perspective, I do far more to help starving kids out than your absent god has ever done.

You talk about choice. What choice would that be?

According to the Bible we have no choice:

"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will"

Ephesians 1:11

Do you know what "predestined" means?

pre·des·tine (pr-dstn)
tr.v. pre·des·tined, pre·des·tin·ing, pre·des·tines
1. To fix upon, decide, or decree in advance; foreordain.
2. Theology To foreordain or elect by divine will or decree.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/predestined

In other words, everything we do has been mapped out and decided in advance by your god.

That includes abortion doctors. They are doing what God decreed in advance for them.

How you know if your a true Christian!:
You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions but you feel outraged when someone denies the existence of your god.
You feel insulted and dehumanized when scientists say that people evolved from lesser life forms, but you have no problem with the biblical claim that we were created from dirt.
You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a trinity god.
Your face turns purple when you hear of the atrocities attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in Exodus and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in Joshua including women, children, and animals.
You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that a Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.
You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth, but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by prehistoric tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that the Earth is a couple generations old.
You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs, will spend eternity in an in infinite hell of suffering. Yet , you consider your religion the most tolerant and loving.
While modern science, history, geology, biology and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in tongues may be all the evidence you need.
You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.9% failure was simply the will of God.
You actually know a lot less than many Atheists and Agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history, but still call yourself a "Christian"
This was dead on!
