In the dark ages the church told us that illness was caused by evil spirits, we now know that illness is caused by germs.
In the dark ages the church told us the world was flat, we now know that it is round,
In the dark ages the church told us the pretty lights in the sky at night are angels, we now know they are distant suns
How is it that christians still believe anything the church said during the dark ages?

Love is to be shown to all, not just to a few. No matter what religion one has, love is suppose to be given to them. He who can not love others because they choose other wise, is not of the true Father. Let me give a good example, though some may say I lie.
My sister was taken from us, her husband is the cause of her death. I still love him, I do not hate him. If I hate him, then I hate that which God created MAN. I do not have to have dealings with him, I do not have to speak to him. This he does know, but upon meeting him out and about. I still show him kindness, people can not understand why I do. Even my own family has scorned me for this, but here is what I have said to them.
Even though we know Jesus was born to die for our sins, we man killed him. God so loved us very much that we was forgiven, for Gods love was n is unconditionally.....Now do not get me wrong at one point I hated the man, who took my sister from me. That was untill I felt my Lord take that hate from me, after years of asking. One day I returned back to going to church, I walked in those 2 doors. I felt a burden lifted off of me, this same day the doctors wanted me in the hostpial bad lung infection. I refused to go, I was beingg called to another place. As I said as I walked through those doors I felt a burden being lifted, when I came up out of the water. I felt heat go through my body, I was healed of 2 things hate and infection.
Now I show love to those I once considered to be the ones I hate, love is a good feeling. But. only through God's guiding hands could that be done. For the hate I had was eating me up, and doing a good job at it.
Your sister death was a accident that was caused by her husband? Sorry for your loss.

Judge not others over their beliefs, no christian should do that. They are suppose to help them, not tell them to leave. If that one person does not want it, move on to the next, Ones religion can not be forced off onto another, that is their choice.
goes to the simple ideas of belief in general.

or as jesus said.

John 10:16
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

Sounds silly to be an unthinking sheep that blindly follows. But that is fitting for a religion started by middle east towel heads.(you do know that all of the people in the bible are middle eastern not white European right?)

really, i wouldn't have used the term "all" but that tends to be the case when bigots are generalizing, isn't it?

abraham came from the east and sent ishmael to the east country east. you do realize that the silk and spice roads were already en situ, don't you? there is a whole community of people in pakistan who strangely emulate the israelites in custom, culture, and even language.

abraham = brahman
sara = sarasvatti

Three types of angels appear in the bible: cherubim, seraphim and archangels. The Cherubim are like gods little body guards, the protect things with items like swords. Yep, angels need swords. The Seraphim are like gods pony express angels, six winged, speedy. Archangels are gods battle bots and messengers for heaven.

I do not know why god would need protection, but it seems a full third of heavens angels rose up in arms against the big guy..33 percent. So what becomes of an angel tossed out of the place most magnificent,, they are referred to as demons.

I've never seen an six winged angel but apparently wings are needed to fly, no teleportation from upstairs it seems. I've never seen Satan nor seen an archangel or seraphim nor demon. This bums me out.

Puff, puff, pass.

Hilarious coming from you. Just so happens I remember how you and your bestie Fat Pat talked about a little old lady on topix like a dog. Called her a child molester, devil worshipper, and even posted such nonsense under her name. Threatened to go to her house and put her to sleep, and bragged about having her address. Now you are just a big giant ball of love. A typical Christian, hypocrite, or whatever you want to call it. Anybody interested in religion that come across somebody like you would swear it off for life. Considering all the people I know I would estimate the nonbelievers to be more decent then the so called Christians. I know a lot of religious people and can't recall but a couple that were actually decent people. Three Preachers live on my Holler. One preaches at a Church on the holler. One sells dope, one is a drunk, and the last drinks and chases every skirt in sight. Worked with one that a number of people I came across bragged on. Claimed you could feel the Spirit as soon as you walked in the Church. He shot oxy IV before every sermon and claimed it put him in the spirit. He told me a story once about how a little old lady in the congregation said the Lord laid it on her to give him a hundred dollars, that she felt he needed it. He laughed and said she didn't have any idea how bad, and bought an 80 with the money. Know another who brags on how he is a Vietnam Vet. Turns out he spent two years in prison to keep from going, awol, dishonorable discharge. Well turns out he fought it later on somehow got it turned around in to a medical discharge. Claimed the Drill Sergeant drove him crazy. SOB is receiving benefits right now. Saw him at the VA Hospital in Huntington not long ago. Turns out he sells his medication on the street, so not only a piece of trash but also a drug dealer, oh and a preacher. One thing for sure is you fit right in.

You have experience and evidence that the light will come on when the switch is flipped. If the switch is broken you will quickly lose your faith in it. The Bible, Torah and Koran are broken light switches, and the faithful somehow believe they can see in the dark as they joyously bless their stubbed toes and kneel to grope for their dirty socks.
I have Experience that God is real...
Jesus is the Light, and you can grope for yer socks in the dark...
IF you want too!
Good luck with that!

<quoted text>What you posted was saying it does not matter that your god demanded you to rejoice while killing babies because jesus came and told you to love your enemies blah blah. That does not explain your hate filled god demanding that you be joyful while killing babies. Can you explain that? Maybe it was the words of a Jewish man wishing this would happen?
Your jesus stated he is not the father but the way to the father etc so jesus is not god. Can you explain that one?
Oh, so the old laws, like the ten commandments, do not apply?
Please tell me where it says that you are not subject to the jewish laws? Matthew 5:17 maybe?

I cut the statement below and pasted it here,, in the below statement it is not the time, nor the people that are important it is the "fact" that any god would see fit to smash babies against stones for any reason at any time that is fully messed up.
If that god did exist then we are little more than roaches to this god.
If the statement means from bad parents come bad babies, that would explain why all mankind is evil, we are all gods children, after all.
In which case, god would of been better served had he spoken words of wisdom and enlightenment into the primitive minds he dwelled in, not things like smashing babies, there is no way to make this nice, or a justifiable god like act.
Here's your scripture:;
Psalm 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
1st These scriptures are referring to the enemy of Israel at the time, if you read above that.
I guess thoese babies were some tuff little enemies.

And here we have displayed the problem with Christians (indeed, religions in general).
They believe they can, with their minds the size of less than a dust mote, comprehend the "mind" of an eternal, universe-creating (imaginary) being.
Yaa believes he is very special since Yahweh talked to him.
Fantasy at it finest...not to mention the hubris.
"God and I have a *relationship." Really?
How desparate for self-worth does one have to be to believe in an imaginary friend and THEN TELL EVERYONE ABOUT IT?
Believe it if you want but KEEP IT TO YOURSELF, people.
You should be embarrassed. I am embarrassed for you...
The funny part of all this....
You Could have a relationship with Him too!
Not His fault you do not know Him... it's yours!
Instead of crabbing about people knowing God...
Try to get to know Him too... IF yer not scared to do so!
You'll be glad you did!
