Don't let atheists grow in influence

Oct 11, 2013 Full story: This Is Staffordshire 207

Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism? The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence.

I respectively disagree with you.

There will be peace in the world when people recognize that all of us as the entire human race are the Whole Messiah.

The only purpose of a Messiah is to glorify GOD.

The gist of the message of the historical Jesus is that the OMNIPRESENT GOD introduced to humanity by the nation of Israel is LOVE and we are all one with this LOVE that is GOD.

It's important to grasp the reality that GOD is neither male nor female.

Male and female are complements to each other. But GOD is ONE:

Deuteronomy 6:4 :

"4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one."

Logically if GOD is ONE there is no complement, neither male nor female. Both male and female deities are imaginary gods created in humanity's image by humanity.

The message of the historical Jesus contradicts the so called Christianity of those who have fallen for the Patriarchal Hierarchical Christianity created by the Romans to unify the Roman Empire. This hoax is the only form of Christianity that most people know.

And the message of the historical Jesus isn't about a hierarchy of power. A matriarchy is just as unbalanced as is a patriarchy.

What the historical Jesus was pointing towards was an egalitarian democracy where humanity learns to live in harmony with GOD (LOVE).

The daily practice of these two most important commandments in both the Hebrew and Greek scriptures are essential in allowing us to awaken to this simple truth of our existence in GOD (LOVE).

In The Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37 we read:

"25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus.“Teacher,” he asked,“what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied.“How do you read it?”

27 He answered,“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and Love your neighbor as yourself.

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied.“Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus,“And who is my neighbor?”

30 In reply Jesus said:“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.

31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.

32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.

34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper.‘Look after him,’ he said,‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied,“The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him,“Go and do likewise.”"

The Samaritans were probably the most despised sect in Israel at the time.

Jesus did not say to join the Jews, the Christians, the Moslems, or even the Samaritans. He simply said to LOVE. Not as a pious feeling of the ego but as an effective action from the heart.

Instead of waiting for the Messiah, why not be the Messiah?

Join the rest of those who are casting off the shackles of false religion and embracing the truth of who they truly are in GOD (LOVE) and living it in their daily lives.

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!

Spirits are neither male nor female, there is no sex in heaven. The serpent was an earthly creation for reproductive purposes. But God is coming to the earth and will inhabit the body of a woman. God is not an hermaphrodite. "Mankind" includes women.

Often they are regarded as an embarrassment by fellow atheists.
Some Evangelical Atheists seek relief and vindication by lobbying to pass laws that will make it difficult for religious people to voice their opinions in the public square.

I think you and I worship two entirely different gods.

I worship the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel that even now is slowly being proven to be real by recent scientific discoveries.

The historical Jesus taught that this GOD is LOVE and contains all that is. Any other god is a creation of humans and is imaginary.

While I consider the bible to be a helpful guide on the spiritual path it must be used with discernment. It's really a collection of 66 books by different authors.

I consider the myths in the bible to be teaching myths, not literal accounts of creation.

I also find the scripture at Genesis 1:27 interesting:

Genesis 1:27 (New International Version,©2010)

"27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. "

Male/Female duality isn't just about reproduction. It is the foundation of the manifested universe.

Anyway, that is what I hold to be true. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

peace

Indeed not!

Sex, next to laughing, is one of the very few things in life that makes it worthwhile and is also free.

That would not be heaven-- that would be a hellish existence just for existing alone.

I cannot think of a more hellish thing.

I also wonder, if you could still get turned down in heaven? That would suck.

Well... if you could? It wouln't be very heavenly, would it?

Yet... if the other person was just a robot? That'd be bad too.

*sigh*

I suppose-- in heaven? Your pick-up lines would be ... heavenly? And irresistible?

:)

But to make that work? You'd also have perfect radar-- and you'd instantly know ahead of time, if the woman would turn you down no matter what, saving you the embarrassment at the outset.

Of course...

... all that certanty? Would be boring too...

... meh.

Face it-- there can be no optimum solution, without a little mystery.

Probably - these liars invent everything that happens up their anyway.

With nothing to worry about in heaven, they must all be depressed.

actually the word "heaven" more accurately points towards a state of consciousness.

Having a euphoric sexual experience is important because it allows us to sometimes experience this state of consciousness for a brief instant. It's a vital part of our evolution and gives us impetus for growth.

The Roman form of Patriarchal Hierarchical Christianity actually denies heaven by condemning the pleasures of the flesh. You could say celibacy is really the root of all evil.

Why then, you might ask, does the church hate sexual passion so much?

Well,,,..,,, You see, when you can truly share a brief moment in heaven in the embrace of the one you LOVE, who needs a church that tithes ten percent of your income and doesn't have a clue as to what heaven really is?

There is no sex in heaven because there is no reproduction. The "serpent" (part of Adams anatomy) was an earthly creation for purposes of procreation. Inhabitants of heaven are spiritual, not carnal, and there is no division of male and female. All Angels are alike.

So.

No eating? No drinking-- of anything?

No games--'cause games have a winner and a loser-- so none of that, either.

Which means: no sports of any kind in heaven.

Booooooooring...

... pass.

There will be **NOTHING** worth while to DO!
