Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Thats true

Although keep in mind when applying that verse that the circumstances were work was available and people were capable of doing it but instead basically tried to steal the wages in terms of food that was paid to those who did the work

I have no idea how you apply it as I don't know you but I have seen some use it to justify not helping the poor and hungry without even looking into how they became that way

Also should add people are saved through grace alone. But the reasons God will save them with his grace is if they are obedient and faithful until the end
Also grace sometimes is being distinguished from works of law. Works of law is the Pharisees who thought simply by following the law they could be saved, even without belief
Can a childless woman who is faithful and lives a moral life be saved? Paul sez no.

I was indoctrinated against my will, as a baby, to belong to the cult that is Genuine Christianity™.
I remained brainwashed in that cult for most of my life, finally able to set myself free from the brain-damage that is faith, by simply reading the **whole** bible, and not just the pretty bits (as you no doubt do).
Once I realized how incredibly ugly and evil the bible is? I also realized that no god who GAVE A DAMN would have permitted the ugly bible to even exist at all.
So, clearly, there is no such being.
If god exists? God does not care one bit about the collective fate of humanity.
The proof is the very existence of the bible, the quoran, the book of mormon, the <insert religious book here> ...
Congratulations.

And after you left Christianity, you got indoctrinated into Atheism.

Not much of an improvement IMO.

Bolagna! They are nuts. These narrow minded bigots deceive themselves into believing that they are the new intelligentsia. The best and the brightest. The intellectuals of our Times. Everything is beneath them. They alone have been chosen to proselytize the world into correct thinking. The mere mention of God is highly offensive to self-appointed preachers of no-god. They scream in subtle ways the hell, fire and stupidity of the average religious boob, who wastes his life contemplating how many angels could fit on the end of a pin.
UNTIL LIFE OVERWHELMS THEM AND THEN THEY CRY OUT TO THEIR GOD, ANY GOD WHO WILL LISTEN, HOW DESPERATELY THEY NEED HIS HELP. LIKE THE passengers on a doomed flight with 30 seconds of terror left to live. GOD becomes more important than all else in strides, beloved.

So what moral standard are you using to judge the bible with?
If you don't mind other poster's opinions....here is mine:

I use the facts based upon archeological finds and literary scholars to come to the conclusion that what is read today IS NOT what was intended.

Too many changes cause the Bible to be in error of its teachings.

...and you? What is your standard?

I didn’t realize that’s what you call those who design & launch life boats,“Psycho?”

Psycho?

So all these people that have ever launched a life boat from a sinking ship or a oil platform you call,“Psycho?”

What would you call those that didn’t get in the life boat when they were perfectly able to?

Victims, unwise or just foolish?

So if the Bible says something that you don't understand or like, then just ignore it? Paul says women must give birth to be saved. That's pretty ridiculous I agree, but that's what it says. I agree that Paul was a misogynist. Actually, he was pretty loathsome all-around, and as you implied previously he also arguably contradicted alot of things Jesus said too. So do we just cherry-pick what Paul said? Or maybe we do like some other "red letter" Christians sects do and just focus on what Jesus said? Here is my advice: don't take an ancient book of collected documents of dubious provenance quite so seriously. Just be nice to other people and live a decent life. If any God would send you to hell for that, then that God is not worth veneration anyway.
You an Atheist, ineptly trying to teach us the Word of God without any reference. Why? Because you don’t want us to know what scripture you are talking about. We might see the truth.

I will go with the Amplified Version to make more clear the foggy assertion you are trying to make.

1 st Timothy 2:15

15 Nevertheless [the sentence put upon women of pain in motherhood does not hinder their souls’ salvation, and] they will be saved [eternally] if they continue in faith and love and holiness with self-control,[saved indeed][a]through the Childbearing or by the birth of the divine Child.

Why does the magician use prestidigitation?

Is it because his magic is trickery?

If you truly believe this position you have taken on 1st Timothy 2:15.

Then why do you revert to this vague and foggy deception about this scripture?

My beloved atheists are struggling to find arguments these days. Diarrhea is settling down. Krazi's been caught in so many lies, she's getting tongue tied. None of them dare answer the simple atheist test! They do, however, know how to make me laugh.
HELL isn't real and you will know for sure in no time. No one built the sun, either. It just stopped in one day and decided to hang around. No one ever baked a cake
