Yup.

Same here. Choirs (plural), Sunday school, Church, Vacation Bible School, yadda, yadda, yadda.

I still accompany my parents on Christmas to their church, and throw in a few bucks in the plate, but do so just out of respect to my parents.

No we aren't. God and free will are incompatible. You are unaware of this because you haven't applied the slightest thought to your religion.

But don't worry, there's not a shred of evidence for it.(shrug)

Have no worries. You have a better chance of getting hit by lightning or winning Lotto.

I applied thought to the religious indoctrination that was being foisted upon my young mind. That's why I am no longer shackled to 4th C dogma

Take a peek at Joshua 24:15 and Romans 6:16-23. Oh yes we do have a choice of which route to follow, one will do much more than just shrug when they wake up in torment after this life.

when ligntening does hit it sure tears up jack, doesn't it? I think a 50/50 chance is much more probable than either of the events you advocated.

Oscar Wilde wrote "The importance of Being Ernest" also. I was not aware he was a noted theologian and thus offered his opinion on spiritual matters. Lassie has an opinion also.W.C. Fields wrote "the best way to fight temptation is to give in to it". Do you ascribe to that theory?

HOw you like these odds?...Obey and serve God faithfully until death and receive your heavenly reward 100%, Ignore God and/ or Serve something other than God and receive eternal punishment 100%. Sounds like a slam dunk to me Skippy.

Patriot, don't you understand that your Bible is full of flaws?

Bad science, bad history, failed prophecies and self contradictions abound.

Why should anyone believe it? Since the Bible is terribly flawed you cannot use the Bible to prove the Bible, you have to find some outside source that supports your claims.
