The next time believers tell you that ‘separation of church and state’ does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word ‘trinity.’ The word ‘trinity’ appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin.
If they are still unfazed (or unphrased), by this, then add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural, Transcendence, Immaculate Conception, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation, Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, Sunday School, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Apostasy, Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible.
Those words we use now like 'trinity' are used to describe a theme described in the Bible where there is no particular identifiable word. Yes, people differ over the Biblical references, but it has nothing to do with federal law. We're not told by our government what to believe in terms of the relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

No amount of talking to or praying can make me suspend my belief of reality. A cult is a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. It doesn’t have to be real and size doesn’t matter.

Isn’t it lucky that you Jesus freaks happened to be born into the one true religion? Out of the hundreds of faiths and thousands of gods you got the right one.

A rational person rejects all gods equally, because all of them are equally imaginary.

RE: Believers
..... Anyone can invent a belief system and associated literature, and make changes to it if those changes will bring in more money. Last time I looked into an encyclopedia of Christianity there were about 3000 so-called "Christian" belief systems all over this planet.

That is why Rome persecuted the Christians.

Rome didn't care what God you worshiped as long as you put Caesar first.

But Christians don't make compromises with false Gods.

" you must not have strange Gods before my face" is the commandment.

What is that saying " a person who represents himself in court has a fool for a lawyer."

In the court in heaven Jesus pleads for us...got the best lawyer in the business.

Most people are NOT Christians.

Satan is doing a better job than God, which means that 1) Satan's message is more appealing (he's better at marketing than God is) and 2) Satan's message is more powerful than God's.

For God so loved the world that he gave Satan enough power to turn most of the world away from God.

Well done, God. Well done.

Man has free will..and Satan is Gods angel of destruction...the God of this world..." The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one"

Jesus has defeated him and proved his accusations a lie..

Most people are misled by Satan..

but the good news is Jesus is returning and will bind him for a thousand years and he will not be able to mislead the nations in that time...so cheer up..

Not only do fundamentalist Christians believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired word of " God" but they interpret everything in it to conform to their particular understanding. Similarly they interpret U.S. history and the Costitution to conform to their beliefs, in spite of the fact that neither the word "God" or Christ nor the name Jesus appears in the Constitution.

Now that's funny!

When the reality is the Doctrine of the Trinity was made a LAW by a Roman Emperor in order to settle the debate among the Believers/Churches! The Belief was forced on Xtian-dom by the LAW, as it would not have worked any other way - because scripture does not support the whole idea behind it!!

I think we have found a major contender in the 2013 Funny Things said By Xtians contest.

So IF Jesus defeated Satan, it was a personal defeat, not a collective one, that we all get to rely on.

We all have to go thru the same old tiresome Faith based Worship and rituals as before Jesus...now we just have to believe in an added absurdity, that Jesus rose from the dead and wholly ascended into heaven...to sit by his Father, er...himself...

Wait a minute...Jesus is sitting there besides himself...? Oh man, that's just silly...

Right! And the historic Western Xtian majority has been MOST WRONG, usually wrong, about most things they pontificate on.

Exactly what has Xtian-dom/Xtianity been right on?(that they can prove!)

Pride is defined as, "a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired."

Are you saying that deriving pleasure from one's achievements is a sin?

What if one of your achievements was to head up a church that saved millions of lost souls - would it be a sin for you to feel good about doing that?

Ignorance is a disease, and YOU are living proof of that.

Misleading atheistic propaganda. While most of the world may not be Christians, the majority by a long shot believe in some sort of god, thereby leaving YOU and the rest of the fools (atheists) in the minority, as usual.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_people_bel...

As of 2005 (most recent data), approximately 88 percent of the world's population were said to "believe in God" (Cambridge University). This is down from 96 percent in 2000. In the United States, 95 percent of the population "believe in God."

But an intelligent, and honest, reading of the Constitution proves it was largely based upon Christian values. Deny it all you want, this is STILL a largely Christian nation, the way it was INTENDED.

Pride is looking at the accomplishments of man and saying "I am the cause for all of the good in the world". Your arrogance is only surpassed by your stupidity.

Churches and man does NOT save souls. Only GOD saves.
