Have a little faith [Let me use the celebration of Easter as a chance to dismantle atheism]

Apr 3, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Free Republic

It's Easter. And that reminds me of the story of philosopher Bertrand Russell being asked on his deathbed what he would say to God if he found that, contrary to what he believed, the creator did in fact exist.

Once again, it all comes back to the same word. FAITH. This may be hard to explain to someone who lacks it, but those who have faith need not be bothered with these questions. Not only that, but I know from Jesus Himself that these things are true. I have heard His voice, and seen Him will come true, He has changed my heart and made me new, giving me eternal life. He has taken me out of the kingdom of this world, and brought me into His own.
In the last 2012 years too much harm, unjust, crime, murders, bigotry has been in the name of religion. Too many words in the “good Book” justify the above. Too many follow the words. Too many do not understand where the book came from. Too many believe it came from a god and not men that wrote it.

The bible is a metaphoric allegory of words and phrases. Over twenty centuries of being interpreted, translated, transformed, decoded, and twisted to conform mans words and thoughts. Hundreds of years of the “word” being used to control people to do the will of others.

It would be best if people took the time to study and understand the bible and the history as well as all neglected and forsaken letters and books that have been purposely left out over the last 2012 years.

I am not trying to change any ones faith but they should challenge it to make you think for yourself and not just, what you are told.

Throughout history, man was told what to believe, could not, and was not allowed to even read the text.

Control of man and his faith or belief was and is a powerful tool to control him.
If you would go as sheep to slaughter then you are blind and cannot know the truth.

Now you ask do I know the truth, yes I know my truth and studies and found a lot of what man holds to be real and or truth is false.

They need to challenge their faith to become totally unlighted. Then they will have true and unadulterated belief. They must admit that it is faith in something that cannot be proven and may not exist at all.

If it is not total faith in an unsubstantiated being that cannot be proven then the faithful could give us undisputed proof and show absolutely the existence of a god without the bible.
It matters not the religion or lack of, but man’s heart and what guides it.

I understand faith, but who told you to have this faith?

Forty-three years of organized, controlled and fundamental ideology turned me away as well as I have never see any proof even in the belief and faith.

I live my life the way I want to be treated and not the way that others tell me or mandate so that I will be in some heavenly place. That is extortion and terrorism in my view. Reading the whole bible “word of god” has shown me that there cannot be a god, but I do not disallow others beliefs unless that belief becomes overbearing, pushy, and harmful to others and at times all religious beliefs become just that.

Too much harm, unjust, crime, murders, bigotry have been in the name of religion. Too many words in the “good Book” justify the above. Too many follow the words. Too many do not understand where the book came from. Too many believe it came from a god and not men that wrote it. The book took hundreds of years to be written, transcribed and interpreted. That is why the bible cannot be trusted as a source.
