Could you say the mere existence of religion and law in so many cultures is evidence that the God you choose must be moral?
Huh?

Anyways, absolutely not. If god got "his way," as elucidated in his book, our society would be an absolute shit hole.

Now you know how the mobocracy works.
Yeah. Not really anything new. I guess I get a bit of sadistic pleasure in defining the details. It's kind of like watching a scared rodent choosing where to run next, but the simple folk are very willing to assume that everyone is as dazed and confused as they are. It's rare to see something new.

Happy turkey day! I've already killed the diet for the week, but it was a fine meal.

There are still some elements of truths in oral traditions, but from your premise, you are saying it is wrong.
I really do think the earth is not what you guys think it is.
There is still some secrets that one can reveal, except the almighty. The quest continues.
Don't tell me what is or isn't called for. Don't bother telling us your feelings if you don't have any facts to support them. Don't waste my time with your artificial "secrets" spawned from your artificial creation myth.

Of course he wasn't. In his investigation of scripture and nature he was unsatisfied. His interpretations of Jesus was idol worship. I wonder how much of him being a Christian was just a front to avoid punishment from the power vested in the church.
Disagree!
There were some anomalies, the leaders of the church were doing that he was kicking against.
Then, you can not really fight the leaders or majority, due to the absence of the rule of law.
Due to this absence, he was rightly accused, but he still a remain a christian until his death.

Charles, I have this theory, that the earth is hollow, and that that's where demons come from. Do you agree? There's this little dark spot found in satellite photos of antartica - I think it's obviously the hole that the demons come out of.

Constantine. Without him unification and relevance of Christianity doesn't happen. It was a political move with a touch of him taking Pascal's wager.
There were/ are many lessons from the story of Constantine, one of them teaches us that, God can use any one, irrespective of their fame, power, position or wealth.

Nor will the love of Christianity. The good merits or ill will of a person need not be described by scripture or declared by self appointed spokesmen for imaginary deities.
Lol.
Who said that?
A mere mortal. Lol
Good luck.

I'm not asking for Christianity to take me anywhere and I'm contemptuous towards all the major religious groups who meddle in other peoples affairs. It just so happens that you're selling the preferred snake oil in this part of the world.
If you want to label it hatred, make sure you're pointing it at the right thing. I hate meddlers, especially the ones with criminal intent. Don't bring your witch doctor dance to my house. Once I've publicly rejected your literal interpretations of the Bible, I don't expect to see you shoving them at me again or you'll have a hard time distinguishing my contempt for the concept and contempt for you.
If you hate that, what are you expected to do, you ignore it.
That post was not actually directed at you.

Ah the power of God... Amazing how he/she/it can miraculously conform to your position without a shred of reliable evidence.

People really can say all sort of things, whether true or false.
But we can not rule out the existence of spirits and demons.
They do exist.
