Not really. Many countries where Christianity is growing are some of the most educated such as South Korea Singapore and Canada.
[QUOTE who="Henry"]<quot ed text>
The more people get educated the less they are religious! Science is a eral motivation for mankind. Unfortunately capitalism in the nuclear age means the extermination of mankind. Communism was the last chance for the survival of our race. This chance is over now!
Communism? oy! how can that work when the power in the hands of a few? Capitalism is pretty awful too, but at least you have some opportunity to keep your money.

1. Believers are good.

It is just laughable that non believers would have an aversion to truth. Atheists have real the truth, believers are mistaken by the truth. The latter one should get to science and reality!

Ever hear of crack babies?
Try again.
Having lived with a nurse who worked in with babies after they were born, I am very aware of the truth of that. Some babies are so addicted to drugs because their mother was a user that it is a serious problem for them when they are born. I think many of those mothers here are investigated by children's services and many lose custody of their own babies.

My partner had mixed feelings about the Children's services involvement, because my daughter was in the services that made those decisions, but my partner saw the heartbreak of a mother, who really wanted her baby but was not capable at that time of caring properly for it.

To add could I also say Faith is responding to something you hear and know is truth. To believe with your heart and mind. Faith is to trust in, with no doubting but seeking answers to grow.
Faith also comes from God.
Since there is no god is of course no faith at all. Faith is just an image! It has no meaning at all!

Gay people don't have sex/relationships with both sexes. Bisexuals do.
I find it strange that a "straight" person knows more about how a "gay" person feels than they themselves do.

When I wanted to learn about the gay community I went straight to the source...the gay community. I asked questions...then I listened...thought about what they said...then asked more questions. When I wanted to learn about transgendered...I asked a transgendered person. I went to an asexual when I wanted to understand an asexual.

If I wanted to learn more about Christianity...I would ask a Christian not an atheist.

If I wanted to learn about Buddhism I would not go to a Christian to learn.

When I wanted to know how about the racism shown to a black person I did not go to a white person.

When I wanted to know the affects of 9/11 was felt by a middle easterner...I went to someone that was from Pakistan.

When I speak of any of the above...it is from what I learned from each of these people...

I could explain to you from what I have been told why someone that is gay might have sex with the opposite sex. I don't think however that it would really matter to you. You are more comfortable with what you have come up with on your own.

I agree, Truths, that we should all act here in the same manner we would act if we were sitting in the same room at a serious discussion, or debate, in which we would not be permitted, by those in charge or by common courtesy, to act how some here act (including me at times). We are "flesh" however, and we are all 'of this world' regardless of what our out of this world beliefs might be, so we have no choice in that, except to how we present ourselves.
Well, we have now in the world more than 800 AKWs and in capitalism already it means that radiation is deadly for the whole humanity. But additionally to them we have devastating wars, and natural desasters (tsunamis, earth quakes and so one). Religions are meaningless for us.

Billions of people of all nationalities: white , black, red, brown,Asian.

ALL KNOW Him to be true due to similar life experience in HAVING MET OUR LORD Jesus Christ . Through the BLESSING of The Holy Spirit we were given THE gift of Jesus from God.
B I L L I O N S of people ALL agree He "IS" . Not because we read about Him in a book~
He was not "taught" to us LIKE math or science or Oprahs favorite "serve self" books...
But because we experienced His invitation and the miracles He performs in our lives. FIRST HAND experience !
No other proof is needed of His existence,as billions of us KNOW the truth. YOU too can MEET your brother Jesus simply by asking Him into your heart.
... people did NOT write the Bible , GOD made it RIGHT. By use of His willing servants.
SO look into your bible and use it as a time to visit with God and His words of wisdom.
If you read Psalms and Proverbs- I am certain that you will see that you already follow His advice.
We have currently reported to be about 2 1/2 billion people in the whole world who 'claim' the Christian faith. Likely 75% of those people would be in places where the level of education and understanding would not even enter the "experiencing of God in their lives". Yes a few billion Christians have lived since 2000 years ago, but the number of people who have lived in the past 2000 years is not that large based on the current population, as even in my lifetime the world population has about tripled, and records of the past 2000 years would indicate the world populations were a lot smaller than prior to the 20th century.

Of the 2 1/2 billion Christians reported to be Christians, only a very small fraction of them are currently active Christians, and I highly suspect that many of those that are not active in the faith would be claiming a personal experience with Jesus, or would even those who are active.

In my denomination the last time I checked the figures there were somewhere over 2 million members reported in Canada, but only about 200,000 actually are involved in their churches. Because of how records are kept etc., people tend to be classified into groups that they don't necessarily follow, though I think the membership figures, at least for my previous denomination would be based on names on the membership roles of people who actually at one time "joined the church" but subsequently fell away (or moved away) but did not bother to cancel their membership. That does actually create some problems for the business running of the church, because some churches are helped by the overall Church because they do not have sufficient members to sustain them, but with members on their list who are not active they cannot properly prove that they don't have those participating.

Also I think it is only certain denominations of the Christian faith that even speaks of a personal 'walk with God'. In my 40 some years in my church and a very active member, I do not recall that as being something that particularly was ever mentioned, other than when our congregation, or group of congregations, held a special "revival" week, and got in guest speakers who sometimes would be the type that would tell stories of how they were saved and how Jesus spoke to them. Personally I also felt that their enthusiasm tended to make their comments a bit beyond what they had actually experienced.

I cannot recall ever hearing a minister of my denomination ever speak about his talking with God, other than mentioning about praying. I think it was likely more the case that those who 'believed' accepted that God exists, and all that goes with that, and even many did not think that it was "Christian" to even question their beliefs. I have heard my mother state something to that effect, yet I have never heard my mother say that she personally experienced Christ in her life.

Nice post.
I am appalled to the level some here, as Lawlest and a
few others,
will sink to cling to their theory that being gay is a choice.
Do their judgements of another's being stem from fear, or
simple self righteousness??
They claim to stand on God's word in their blatant loathing of
the gay population- they want to tell you who you can love and
who you can be intimate with..
It's frustrating, to me, that one can claim a God of Love and
yet go into the world and harshly judge those different from them, in
the name of their Lord..
Whose "work" do they really think they are doing??
Who has given them the authority to be judge and jury
in the first
place??
Maybe they should walk a mile in the shoes of someone who is
born attracted to the same sex? Then maybe a bit of empathy will begin to
grow within their hearts??
-I don't know..*sigh*
Supposedly, there's a book about a straight Christian man walking in the shoes of a gay man. He went through all the steps.
He told his parents he was gay and got shunned by them, he felt the hate every day. I need to get that book and read about all he went through, but it made him a better person to understand that it was hard to live as a gay individual.

Regarding the bible, anyone who uses it to hate gay people or to call it a sin and claim they don't hate gay people is a hypocrite.
A famous clip from The West Wing can explain why:



Did you hear about France?
They just confirmed the approval of marriage equality, and as a result, the rates of violence against gay individuals are rising.
People are beating gay people up just because they want to have that feeling of being better, higher, and mightier.
It's a false feeling though, for their actions show that they are on the wrong side of morality and are worth less than crap.

No I would not rather have that. I would rather it be a non issue that no highschooler gets attention for - for having announced it. I would rather no one ever felt the need to announce "I am GAY"... I would rather that people did not feel that they have to tell everyone- it makes it seem that they just like the attention and that they are hoping for a challenge from others...so they can use the "hate crime" status when people object to the 'big deal' they themselves are making out of it.
I agree with you that homosexuality ACTS are a choice, and not born this way.
Just as Adultry, whormungers, murderers, pedophilia, and on and on with ALL sinning.
Our choice to do right or wrong.

I don't hear of any of those ANNOUNCING that they do those sins, except for the homosexual, I guess this is for us to accept this as normal.

We don't know the homosexual's heart and their talks with God, as some homosexuals say they are Christian . I know that all sins , you must REPENT , and ask Jesus into your life, and I don't see the ACTS of the Gay person any different.

Have a blessed day.
