So that's something you recommend - being Christ-like?
Presumably someone who claims to be a Christian will at least make an effort to emulate the object of their worship, and become more Christ-like over time. Although hopefully they do not go all the way and torture themselves to death.

So you think they should be Christ-like on some things; not on others.

Seems you and they are in sync.

Indeed I'm not. What do you think the ultimate judge that you claim to believe in would say about you?

Are you saying all Christians should torture themselves to death?

You are then consistent, if morally lacking.

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.—'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.'— Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.”

Certainly Atheism isn’t necessary either. As a matter of fact Atheism as a organized group is practically negligible in the charities. Sure there are a few scattered Atheist that are supporters of charities but again Atheist as a strong organized group are negligible.

There's your original post where you refute the statement there wasn't any American government when Columbus arrived in America.
So tell us, what government was established in America at that time?
My my such confusion over my simple joke!

You Christians are really messed up.
Some of the comments I nearly died laughing.

I think I will set the record straight. I said this to another poster named: Dave Nelson..

A unmasked slam at the government and christians!

Once again! By popular demand!

Here's another, let's see how screwed up they can make this one!

One time, feeling a bit on the silly side, and under the influence of marijuana, there was a knock at my door. I suspected Poe's Raven but was surprised to see camera showing two adults with a couple of children in tow, armed with Bibles and pamphlets.

I dabbed a dot of lipstick in the middle of my forehead, opened my door, clasped my hands together and began to chant reverently Hare Krishna ala the Beatles.

The question is did they speak or leave?

Does it matter one way or the other? NO

So you don't count non-religious people and organizations as atheists?

Okaaaaay.

There was the governments of the several nations, some of which were alliances.
BTW, the Iroquois Confederacy and constitution predates the US Constitution by damn near 100 years and it was used as a model for parts of it too.

Actually, I do know what I'm talking about, I'm glad to hear that you have projects to help the needy. But, like you said, you are just one church in one community. Most churches aren't like that.
BS.

Most churches ARE like that.

However, what is so hypocritical is a 'rational atheist' oxymoron like you JUDGING those who devote themselves to not just bettering themselves, but helping others while you do nothing. Even if it were just ONE church in each community, that STILL would surpass what atheists do.

Put up honey or shut up.

SMile.

The rate of abused and starving kids cancels most of that out, christians didn't "create universities" and giving out false hope built on a foundation of bloodshed and lies, is not a "good deed".

Hospitals have existed and would exist, without your religion.

So answer the question...smartass.
When Columbus came to America, which government was in charge?
There was no single government, as such.

In North America, there were various tribes, many of whom were smaller than some European townships.

But even the largest typically practiced a pretty primitive style of dictatorship/tribal leader.

Which is a form of government.

But no national government existed in North America at the time of the European settlements.
