Which team do you think god favors in the Super Bowl?
San Francisco, or Baltimore?
I ask because, very often following a game, players on the winning team thank god for the victory.
Best prayer wins? smile. Nah, just a simple giving of thanks for the win. It's a game of chance and "best team wins" all rolled up in one imho. The losing team should give thanks and be grateful as well... I mean, they still are millionaires, have nice cars and trophy wives, right?

If it is honorable to "believe" without evidence, then one may believe themselves in perfect harmony with the god, and yet remain honorable. If another who professes "belief" disagrees with any (small) portion, then they are not a true believer
that is why Patty speaks for god, is consort to Jesus, and if you doubt that, then you are not a true christian.
Who is Patty?

How could you seek love for a man who does not love? A man with no compassion but only vengeance. A man who fails to care and understand but segregates and dictates.

That is what I fail to understand. The blind concept of religion. Of god and Jesus.

You say rapture yet close your doors on those who are kind at heart, honest and good solely on the grounds that they do not belief in your religion. How medieval are your practices? How blinded are your eyes?
I don't close my door on anyone because of beliefs.

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8). Thank you for your promises, Oh God! I want to draw closer to you, to feel your presence as never before. Fill me with reverence and awe and humbleness in your presence. Touch my soul and cover me in your joy and peace. Minister to me Lord, I pray. All praise and glory and honor be unto You. In the precious name of Jesus I come to you and trust in you, dear Lord. Amen.

Prime time with God
Amen <3

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Today I come to You, bringing prayers for my neighbors before Your throne. I don't know what each and every one is going through right now, but I know that each has their own hurts, challenges, problems, needs. I know that some are grieving, whether over an errant child, a lost job, the death of a loved one or something else; some are lonely; some are lost and need the Savior; some are ill and need healing and comfort; the needs go on. Please help me to know what to do to be a good neighbor to them. Give me opportunities to reach out and share Your love. I pray that the Holy Spirit will minister to each one and meet their spiritual needs. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Prime Time with God

Encouraging Words.....

This is real love - not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

I haven't seen one since my mother stopped collecting them in the sixties. She also collected Blue Chip stamps and Viceroy (cigarette) coupons. I used to tease her that she could redeem them for an iron lung.

Doesn't Christian doctrine teach that if what God saw in Jeffrey's heart on the day he died was repentance, that Jeffrey is forgiven of killing and eating those children, and will enjoy an everlasting reward? I'm sure that that is what he was promised.

How do you feel about that? Would you feel free to criticize that kind of "accountability" if you wanted to?

Anyway, my point is not to put you on the spot an ask you to criticize your god, but to address that word "accountablity" as I see it used on these threads. Where is the accountablitiy when there is forgiveness on demand?
The thing for me is that no matter what doctrines, laws and interpretations men come up with, only God knows Jeffrey Dahmer's heart and whether he truly repented or not. He was a Sociopath so to me, it would be a true miracle if he actually felt anything as deep as regret. Many killers become 'Born Again Christians', for real? For sympathy? For fame? To defame Christians? Only God knows Teddy. I'm not interested in Doctrine, dogma, religion, factions, law etc... But I feel, trust and love God. I accept that there is a lot I don't and can't know.

Not according to Christian dogma - not if they demanded their forgiveness.

Here's what we DO know. The Lord Jesus Christ died for our Sins--ALL our Sins, and for ALL Mankind, and IF we BELIEVETH on the Lord Jesus Christ, we shall have EVERLASTING life.
Actually, what we know is that the Christian god is mythological. It couldn't possibly exist. It is self-contradictory.

Nope. I've asked you to stop paraphrasing me. You distort my words every time you do. Where did I say that "Christians feel they don't need to apologize to others"?
Skombolis wrote:
I have asked you repeatedly is that what you did when you were a Christian? Because if so then perhaps your problems with Christians is your own lack of morality while one. And if not then your statement was a deliberate lie as you know better. It is what it is.
And I have told you repeatedly that what I did is irrelevant to what Christian doctrine teaches and permits.

atheists do not "believe"
why would you ever use such a filthy word?
They BELIEVE the provable right? I believe you have said so yourself on another thread.

Science does not prove atheism... Atheists just use the very small part of science, Evolution, in attempts to justify their own beliefs in atheism. Other than the evolution theory (which is yet to be proven), science and atheism are 2 very different things.

Science as a whole is neutral. Now I do think that Atheists and other "neutral" scientists (who are neither atheist or creationist) help to keep science neutral. Otherwise you might have young-earth creationists who would insist that the earth is only 6000 years old.

But evolution, that small part of the whole, is a theory that is simply wrong. But if you want to go there with science, then prove that God does not exist using the scientific method and we can have further discussions on the matter, or NOT! Smile

Then you don't know who the Christians are, do you? Certainly anybody that gets into heaven was a Christian, and everybody that doesn't wasn't. And you can't tell the difference from this side of life.

But don't you consider your salvation assured, assuming that you continue living as you do? Are you deciding for your god that that has been good enough?
Skombolis wrote:
No God has decided for me
Actually, you have decided for your god that you meet his criteria. That hubris could cost you right there.
Skombolis wrote:
scripture tells me enduring to the end and being faithful and obedient is result in God fulfilling His promise to me to save me
How do you figure that you're being obedient? Do you lie? Do you gossip? Do you lust? How many times a day do you need to ask for forgiveness? You seem to be assuming that you get it - what I call forgiveness on demand.

the ethical "problem" is that the animal cannot give "informed consent". The same situation exists when one person is mentally a child.
So then you would or wouldn't agree that people having sex with animals (or let's say, playing with gerbils in a certain way to fulfil their inflamed lusts) is abnormal sexual activity and is disgusting?

<quoted text>
your reference to disgust, suggests you have "sexual issues", perhaps if you avoided the barn, you would have less strange desires.

You need each other constantly propping each other up and using a gang mentality to attack people. It shows mental weakness to me.
How insight-free are you really? Most of this thread is Christians exhorting one another to remain strong in the faith. Does that show mental weakness to you?

Your church is an institution devoted to attacking - gays, atheists, "fornicators," and science for starters.

who would not want the ridiculous promises of religion, were they even a little true?
Who are Atheists?

The truth is, every man has been given a measure of faith. Where they "choose" to put that faith is ultimately up to them. Faith can be strengthened in whatever area they choose which means they will have doubts in other areas. That is why people find worth or value in something ---> (worth+ship = worship)...

Obviously you worship, I mean, find your worth in atheism or agnosticism.
