3. Ending cancer, leukaemia, meningitis, etc.
4. Loving people without involving pain and fire.
5. Avoiding errors and contradictions in his holy book.
Yeah, but apart from that, nothing is impossible for that god.

Well, maybe being in the presence of sin. But that's definitely it.

Wait! Also, accepting mankind as he made them without killing something. He apparently can't do that, either. Now we're done.

Except for making angels that wouldn't rebel against him. Apparently he failed there, too, just as he did with mankind - twice.

And there's something about iron chariots that is over that god's head.

Philippians 4:8 (NLV) And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Yes ~ we are deeply in need of that in here :)

Today's Prayer
Whew! Sometimes, Lord, it seems I'm "in the fire." Things are hectic, I'm bombarded with trials and temptations, and it is not easy. Please help me through the fiery times. I pray that I will emerge a better person, a more faithful Christian, and a living testimony to Your grace. I need Your strength, because I cannot do it alone. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus Name....Amen

Amen :)

The audience knew about the VB and resurrection?
Not so!
paul mentions the resurrection ample of times but not once on the VB.
So why would Paul repeatedly talk about the resurrection and leave out the VB?
They both go hand in hand, yes?
Because the "bishops"(Roman theocracy) were still arguing and trying to establish a 'universal" doctrine of divinity for another 400 years. The "trinity" was established by "imperial" edict of Theodosius-Feb, 27, 380 AD...one which most followers of Jesus of the time rejected. For that, they were persecuted and killed as "heathens"(heathenis m was also made "illegal" at this time).

There are just some things you shouldn't say even when you think it. Your attempted joke in no way is considered funny by me. Weigh your words Mr. Catcher. Loose speech may come back to haunt you.... eventually.
CS.
I don't share your fear of the afterlife.

I understand that your core beliefs are founded on fear; and guilt.

That's for you to deal with, not me.

So YahwehMart it is, dude.

Thank you for this post.
It looks like you were raised well.
Cheers ~ my Mother (she died in my arms June 9th last year) was a wonderful Christian who cared much about others; but I am possibly only really appreciating her now.

It is Mother's Day down here, and my daughter and I are going to drive the 3 hours to the cemetery to visit her, and my Stepfather, Grandfather and my older sister, who was burned to death when she was 2.5 years old.

It is also the town where I was born, and today means much to me :)

I also hope that everyone takes the time out to tell their Mother they love them (if they are in deed lovable) because we just never know when we might not get that chance again....

She didn't say you insulted me at all, I think you misunderstood that part of her post. She's saying that there are a lot of people on this forum who threw insults my way and very few people, if any, who claim to be religious had "come to my aid" (if you wish to think of it that way).
When one generalises Christians, then they include me. That is my point, Lacez, that we are individuals and should be treated as such!

hahaaa... So, your deity is only felt by people who have faith that it exists, and if you have that faith, then the devil(I like the "debbil", since it seems more boo boo boogity!) taunts you because you have faith...
<quoted text> somethin' somethin' somethin'
You know quoting from the bible as a - "proof" - to legitimize your biblical belief(since that is where your belief originates) is like quoting from a Superman comic as a proof that Superman, is, indeed, faster than a speeding bullet.
<quoted text>I think it's more accurate to say that your faith supported theistic belief gives you the additional faith supported belief there is a devil(aka "the debbil!").
Yeah.
I can only assume you have not had any Spiritual experiences in your life, and accordingly, feel very sorry for you ~ yeah!!

No one thinks all Christians are a-holes.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think everyone here knows that there are a hell of a lot more Christians that actually practice the teachings of Jesus (love), than there are those who practice hate (like Lawlest and Adam, pretending they're Christians).
I would hope that people can 'see' who we are by that which we write!

But you could be pleasant at least, or if you have nothing pleasant to say, maybe find a quote from someone who did write of pleasant things?

Yes ~ another migraine..... but I took 2 pain killers when I should have only taken 1, and not being used to them, pretty sure they had an effect.

I am a Christian, HL, so when you state "done by Christians" you are including me.

This is what I wear all day long. Adidas with Jeans
I will be wearing jeans today as I traipse around the cemetery, but will be wearing Fila runners - taking the Adidas with me though, so that I can take off the runners which no doubt, will be filled with mud. The cemetery I am heading off to is out in the bush, and is very countrified. Amazed at how excited I feel about going visiting my Spiritual Ancestors..... an adrenalin rush, so to speak!!

.. is Sereh trying to come between us ??..
.. do you think she wants the HL or Alice experience ??..
When I was about 15, my best friend at the time introduced me to her friend, who was a lesbian. I didn't care about her being a lesbian, she was the first one I knew, but I did care that she would ring me at work and tell me that she loved me, continually, and make passes at me. I gave her up as a friend..... she did not respect my heterosexuality. I am still friends though, with the friend that introduced us, and have known her for 43 years. I can assure you, I do not want the HL or Alice experience, if you are referring to anything sexual.

Does this purpose entail being respectful to your fellow humans no matter their gender, race, sexual orientation or religion?
Does it promote equality and fairness for all?

Ah, so he's not omniscient; because if he was, he would have known about this and never let it happen in the first place.
Looks like his plan failed so he decided to kill pretty much everyone and start again. I guess he's not omnipotent either.

You're one of these people who believes humanity is not in control of its own destiny and is beset from cradle to grave by angels and demons?
Don't worry though as Christianity can't claim sole ownership of this idea - other religions can be just a silly.
<quoted text>
Is this recommending meekness?
Or is it just saying "Don't worry if you're meek because God won't forget you - in fact he will give you the earth".?
Ah well, perhaps Christians should remember this divine encouragement to meekness the next time they sing "Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war" - that's really meek.

Yet hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Looks like whatever those good things are that he fills the hungry with aren't very effective.

http://politix.topix.com/homep age/5825-is-non-interventionis m-a-realistic-foreign-policy-f or-the-u-s The REALITY is that America probably shouldn't have to save muslim/islamic societies from themselves every time the tyranny of their godless leaders reaches it's zenith. But the REAL issue is that America, and every nation that knows they are ACCOUNTABLE TO ALMIGHTY GOD,'MUST' confront and overthrow the evil in our world. The evil that shows NO REGARD for the innocent. And many innocents around the world have no one else to turn to except the most powerful nations on earth that stand for the good of humanity! We know the destiny of evil, unrepentant criminals, and tyrants, when they give an account before the Lord on Judgement Day, but the Lord commands that the powers of righteousness confront and overthrow those in the world who have blindly aligned themselves with Satan the devil and his spiritual works! When will Russia convince themselves that it's in the best interest of their nation, the middle east, and the world,for them to distance themselves from the desperate tyrant of Syria??! So, yes, America should at least attack Assad's homes, installations, and strategic locations the way it attacked and flushed out Saddam. America, will Israel, Almighty God's chosen nation,have to go it alone?! they have PROVEN they are not afraid to confront Assad. Did America invade Afghanistan because it REALLY cared about the people of Afghanistan.....or was it only because America was steaming mad over September 11th,and because it only had it's own interests in mind?? If people suspect that it was the latter,prove the innocents of Syria wrong, America.
Just keepin' it R-E-A-L.

I guess I made the mistake of believing we could have an earnest discussion relating to the topic.
That avenue has been sealed by prejudice.
That's the last I have to say about it.
.. most born-again Christians won't touch the Gnostic Gospels with a ten-foot pole ..

.. although Harvard scholar Dr. Richard Valantasis (Phd. in Historical Theology, Church History, New Testament & Christian Origins) dates GoThomas between 100–110 AD, Trifecta said it's was written between 175-200 AD ..

.. that settles it, there's nothing left to debate ..
