But your question was crap. It's far better to do the right thing than seek credit for it.

Why is your god so needy of praise? Why so insecure?

Why do you ask questions but dont answer the questions posed to you?

Simple question:

If you created say the internet yet I got credit for it and did things with the credit I was given, do you think this is right? Or are you gonna take your stance that "oh well it was the right thing that I did" even though I took credit for what you started? If my question was crap, then answer it and then pose your question. Not just toss it to the side and then pose your own. Otherwise you're just here to argue

What do you mean by credit? My countryman Tim Berners Lee invented the www and enabled all us internet users.

Yet Tim doesn't expect us to wank off to church every Sunday and put money in the collection plate.

Obviously it's nice to get credit, but that's not why I do good things. I'd still do good things even if I didn't get credit.

That makes me better than your idea of god.

Is my question this difficult? I dont even understand why you're avoiding such a simple question. So let me ask again. Before I do, let me say that I didnt say anything of good deeds. I didnt say anything of bad deeds. What I said was:

If you did something (my example was creating the internet) would you want me to act as if I created it and not only lie on that, but run with the credit that you deserve and gain good things for myself? OF COURSE NOT. You created the internet therefore that credit doesnt belong to me, or my friend James, or your first cousin from your moms side. IT BELONGS TO YOU.

And my idea of god? Where have I shared this in this thread?

Moses wasn't a Christian. He wasn't even Jewish. As the story is told, he was a Hebrew who was brought up as an Egyptian. Moses did borrow some of the rules in the 10 Commandments from the Code of Hammurabi, as did all ancient Middle Eastern nations.

I answered your question. I'm only very slightly bothered about receiving credit. Receiving credit is not a major motivator for me. That's my answer. Period.

Now, why not tell me why your god is so very insecure and needy of praise?

Really? So taking the lords name in vain, or working Sundays is worthy of burning for an eternity, but not rape, or slavery?
it really doesn't make a difference, what has been said, explained
your heart is made out of stone
even when someone says things of common sense
you will, like others find an make an excuse and find ways to argue about
thats the truth
with all sincerity, WHY are you so eager to fight the belief of GOD
be honest, why are you fighting against something
you say, you don't believe
are you really having a spiritual war, with yourself,
and your so angry, because your losing

So you would be fine with someone else taking credit for what you did and gaining say millions of dollars off of it?

Wanting credit for what you did is not "needy" or "insecure" If I came up with something I wouldnt want another that had little to no involvement with what I came up with to get credit for it. Thats me and others though. It doesnt make me "insecure" or "needy"

it is rather sad, because here we have people who say the gospels are man made
but, here they are quoting buddhism, babylonian, roman way of belief

you give more honor to men then GOD
you believe what archaeologists, scientists say as gospels
i hope one day you'll open your eyes, ears and most of all
it tells me you would rather follow flawed men,
GOD is the ultimate perfection
GODS word is perfection
Unfortunate that you don't know that most of the parables of Jesus came from Buddhism.

If your Bible is so knowledgeable about god, than why is the Noble Eightfold Path better morally and actually helps develop the mind?

It does not force you to love God, it lets you learn self control, so lovecomesforth naturally for everyone, including God.
