Thank you for that incoherent response to absolutely nothing in my post.

<quoted text>My grandson used to be scared in the hallway; above that doorway I have a plaque, with the image of JESUS how HE is perceived, and the words inscribed;
*GOD's Peace be in this house; And all who live here:
And I told him, don't be scared (name), JESUS and GOD are looking after us and we don't need to be scared in the hallway (or similar), and he ran to the end of the hallway, grabbing the toys and playthings when he got there.
I talk to him about whistling in the dark when we feel the urge to run, Praying to GOD when things are going wrong, and giving him all the Spiritual encouragement I can muster.
My Grandchildren were here just after my Queen Puggy died; I would just let the tears roll down my cheeks; I cannot fight them or I sort of sob LOL, and took them to the spot where she died and moved on to Heaven.
They have held her Ashes in her little Urn, and been here when I ordered Pugstar on the net and know what it is to0 care and love animals. One would hope it is the parent's responsibility to help them love the Vessel that their Spirit has consumed, and not to fight it continually.
I am not sure what you meant, and I'm probably not sure what I mean either, but perhaps there are two sides to the coin?
.. my post was about balance ..

.. I understand what you are trying to say. When you become misty-eyed about Queen Puggy, read D&C 77, 1-4 ..

<quoted text>You really have a fixture on Gays, Catcher1, and have surprised me with your continuing posts regarding same. You believe having your penis chopped off is normal, and one's boobs chopped off is normal too. You believe sex with the same partner is normal; well, sorry to offend you, but it is not normal. Accepted; yes, Normal, no. It is not up to us to approve homosexuality, Catcher1, who are we to judge? If people want to get married to the same sex, let them. Who gives a hoot really apart from their friends and loved ones.
Leave it between GOD and the individual to work out where they are on their Spiritual journey, for you can have no idea.
Just as you denounce Christians as being guilty, you approve Gays as being right; but you do not know the individual. And it is the individual that counts.
However, do you consider bi-sexuals normal too?
Unlike CS, I don't judge people and call them perverts for their sexual orientation.

That is all.

Yes Teddy, I do believe catholics worshipping their tin god do indeed call themselves Christians whilst molesting children and lying to everyone.
Speaking of Nazi Germany, do you know that 'the church' helped to fund Hitler's crusade, including his mad search for the Holy Grail??? Including the human experiments done on Jews???
I should not speak of such horrors too much lest I slip into fury over the lies and deceit of christianity.

When you say biological evolution, you talking theoretical. Because is really a theory that some micro-organism crawl out of the water and became human.
Huh? Your description doesn't remotely resemble the information we have b/c of biological sciences. I apologize, but I have to assume you don't know what you're talking about.

Evolution is both fact and theory. If you don't understand this, you aren't educated in these matters and your thoughts on this subject are childlike and not worth reading.
Even then you would have to go back before that and believe gases appeared exploded turned into planets and somehow earth get the perfect environment for life. The Higgs Boson big discovery last yr rendered that theory dead.
The above is exactly what I mean. You write nonsense borne of ignorance.
That is why Buddhism became a void.
No, it's not. History will give you a much better understanding of Buddhism than uneducated, religious interpretations of science.
Because the meditations aspects of Buddhism was quite spiritually intense, the teachings as sound as any religion, the discipline ethical and worthy, bottom line the philosophy is atheism, no personal creator. Huge void. Had to leave that alone and keep searching.
Totally false. Buddhists are not atheists. I believe a dictionary can help you here.
Jesus Christ filled that void and made perfect sense, and Jesus Christ affirmed my beliefs.
Oh, I see. It's religious bigotry that drives your ignorance. Sure, sure...you miraculously happened upon the "one, true religion." All the other peoples are just crazy stupid. <sarcasm>

Grow up.

I stopped reading at this point because you're quite clearly immature and not capable of realizing that other peoples think. Since that's the case, your words are worthless, except to understand you as a person - and, to be honest, I'm just not that into unempathetic bigots.

I offer you the Christians of "Why Should Jesus Love Me?" as exhibit A. The Christian people of Nazi Germany are a good example of that Christian moral courage as well. As you well know, if you were a Jew in a concentration camp waiting for the tens of millions of church trained Christians in Nazi Germany to stand up and say, "This is wrong! Stop, Herr Hitler!" you were a dead Jew.
Brother Lee Love wrote:
Had the people involved been Christian, there would have been much smaller armies considering that the Christian would have refused to commit any form of violence against other Christians to begin with.
How would that have helped the Jews? The Nazis were almost exclusively Christians. It didn't help anybody but Hitler.

And Christians are more than happy to kill other Christians. What were the Poles and Czechs that Hitler conquered?

You've no doubt heard of the American and English civil wars. How many times have the British and French fought, or either of them against the Dutch or Spanish? Or the Irish amongst themselves. These are all examples of Christians killing other Christians.

I took it (early on) as arrogance.
Looking back at it, I do see where it could come off as arrogance. In trying to provide the light of truth in a realm of darkness, it seems in hammering it home to people who purposefully hold on to error filled doctrine and dubious traditions, it appeared I made it seem as if I was a lofty noble-man speaking to a bunch of ingnorant and uncivilized peasants. Surely, this is not the effect I desired.

In essense, I apologize to you and to all others that I made to feel lazy and unrighteous in their religion; this was not my intent. Even though the truth is no respecter of man, so my information may come off as having a lack of respect. Simply, I feel I may not know how to share crucial information any other way but to tell it like it is.

Basically, I won't please all of the people all of the time.

Shalom!

Post the verse in the OT where Angels were having this alleged war and Satan leading them,
Problem #1- It doesn't matter what text it was recorded in. It's in the book called "Revelation" for a reason. It was a moment in time "revealed" to the prophet John. And if you reject the book called "Revelation," then from here on out, I must conclude that you reject every text not found in the Tanakh.

Problem #2- I asked you once already, but you didn't answer. As to this vision, are you understanding it in the correct chronological allotment?
G_O_D wrote:
where angles are said to have no genitals,
Here, I'm going out on a limb and assuming you're referring to where it's written, "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven." If I'm right, then I must ask: Where in this verse does it say anything about the angels being without genitalia?
G_O_D wrote:
where angels are explained as uncreated spiritual beings (which would make then Gods), etc.
I've answered this already. There's no scriptures that even suggest that the angels aren't created.
G_O_D wrote:
Yet, you have not posted a single verse.
Thank you for proving that such angelic stories are pure fabrications of Christianity.
Are your questions and skepticism based on the scriptures, or on how people interpret the scriptures? I ask, because if you're suggesting that we reject what's written just because people misinterpret what's written, then I think it's time you re-adjust and re-direct your agenda. The fact that nobody can quote a verse that proves something that the bible doesn't say anyway proves absolutely nothing. And it's only those that have no structure, or are trying to build unprofitable arguments, that'll only believe a thing only if it's written in the Tanakh. It seems to me you're simply searching for excuses that you hope will validate your belief-systems.

That's where the church comes in so handy - as the source of that stigma and hatred. <...edited...>
The Christian church appears to be the only significant source of homophobia in the West. It's not originating with the news media, nor Hollywood, nor the government, nor the schools. It's the church. The church has defined that value for America, which makes people's lives more difficult and dangerous. It does so selfishly in order to promote itself, and as far as I can see, offers nothing of value in return to offset the huge societal burden it imposes.
That's the definition of a societal parasite.
Wow - wake up call! I never thought of it that way, but wow.

How true. Religion is organized stigma and hatred of the marginalized.

Religion organizes society and the people in it reflect society. There are two ways to take this. First, religion isn't corrupt, but it's practitioner are. That's the message so many Christian leaders give, but it seems like illusion. It seems like illusion because of the fiction required for religion, the imagined reality that so neatly covers up discrimination and social inequalities - thereby furthering, if not promoting, them.

Second, religion itself promotes stigma to further itself. This point combines my append above, plus a reification of religion. That's dangerous, since religion has no separate existence from humans - but what it is about social performance of rituals that so unites people to discriminate against others, if not openly hate them?

I think it can only be that what we call religion is an organizing feature of humans "tribes" or groups. It unites them in common understanding against an "evil" other. It is then subsequently used by the charismatic and elite to produce social hierarchy. If true, the only solution is education and legal freedoms that promote equality.
