And yet you come on here advocating a life ignoring facts and extolling your virtues as one of the annointed. You may not worry about what people think, but you definitely want them to know.

If that was the case, you would not even consider ascribing to a religion that teaches killing is only okay if they disagree with you or are children.

Your fond wishes are the source of your inability to think clearly.

I would prefer that we work towards minimising destruction ourselves, than rely on fond wishes.

You mean you don't find God in the maggot infested stench of a communal latrine in Maputo?

It doesn't matter who wishes what, it is what it is. I don't really want to suffer and die, but I know it will probably happen to me some day. Every one must die and then face judgement. There is only one way to be made acceptable to our Creator and that is through and by the power of his Son Jesus who holds th keys to the kingdom to come.

But dying is not longer scary when you know that you have an afterlife. That's why the scam is so easy to sell to people like you. It is not death that you fear, it is facing mortality that you fear more than anything. But that is not all for you, you enjoy being able to make assertions with no evidence, just making it up as you go, that is why you chose christianity.

With my last post, I meant you can add the two numbers of the year you were born to the two numbers of the age you will be this year and get the number 113.

Or perhaps it was merely the forces of nature which are not accidental.'Accident' implies 'randomness'. And nature is not random.

Not always anyway.

Perhaps, but you were still an accident, a throwback to the neanderthal likely.

like most cult members, you got hooked by their most useful tool.
I serve God because I want to and also for the reward. Just for the sake of argument, if I did my service to God as a hedge bet....what do you hedge your eternal future against? 1 Cor 15:19 "If in this life ONLY we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable" Each one of us need to prepare for the life that is MUCH more important than this earthly life of 70 or so years, that is just a drop in a GIANT bucket compared to eternity.
