You say you pray to Jesus, and nothing. I can't add anything to that, that you. Too bad for you. But I agree with you that experience gives knowledge. Knowledge though sometimes is only relevant to the person with the experience. That experience and knowledge is not relevant to no one else.
[QUOTE who="Mark"]<quote d text>
Belief is accepting things on authority.
I do not believe anything. that does not mean I am not prepared to accept that Earth revolves around the Moon until I have been able to see that for my self. But I will always distinguish that from real personal experience.
Spiritual people can experience Gods and other spiritual beings, that is true experience and not belief (as long as you are not giving special meaning to that). Even the Divine can be experienced directly by the lucky ones. But there is no reason to truly believe that until you have experienced that. True experience gives knowledge, not belief.
I have prayed to Jesus Christ a lot and never even experienced a thing. I can not say anything definite about Jesus as a man, but as a God he sucks. Christ or Chrestos comes from gnostic belief based on the ideas of Plato about a perfect God. It is based on his theory that this world consists of bad copies of perfect forms in a higher roam. Lots of these ideas were mixed into Christianity.
But they are not based on spirituality either. You can pray to Christ until you die and feel nothing. It is just a theoretical God of Plato.
This changes when people do stupid things like inviting the spirit of Christ. What actually happens is that often unclean spirits enter them, like demons. That is why so many Christians started to murder like madman. They think they are possessed by Jesus Christ, but do not have a clue who is really controlling them. It is a very dangerous practice that was revived in the charismatic churches to make Jesus tangible. See an example here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =PZ0373FD5f4XX
Serous religions have warned against inviting any spirits. Good spirits will generally refuse that, and evil spirits you do not want. To invite the Divine is total nonsense since all creatures already carry his spirit. It is also stupid to think that by calling Jesus name and leaving the door wide open, only Jesus could enter. But since Christians lack any deeper spiritual knowledge they do these stupid things. And many of their pastors are demonic themselves and like to control their flock this way. Christianity is mass control and attracts power hungry leaders.
Spiritual people will sense these pastors are rotten from a mile but Christians let themselves be driven like cattle into huge barns and do not even wonder if they are called "flock" and "sheep". That is why the German Christian herd so easily followed their pastor, fuhrer, leader, Adolf Hitler, who was also a devout Christian churchgoer, paying his church tax like an upstanding Christian, but also a real evil creature.
Christians have often been ruled by such evil people, no wonder, they were so from the moment it became the Roman state religion. It was constructed by these evil people to do exactly that.
Hitler have to answer to God, just like everyone. So I wish you the best. You talk about Demons, so you believe Spirits exist. All I can tell is good luck on your search for spiritual peace. My peace and contentment comes from Jesus Christ. Obviously that not work for you. but that you.

I have also had messages from the other side from both of them (and also my Stepfather) and although I have always believed in our afterlife, they have just added further confirmation.

Glad you enjoyed your day, I am sure your Grandma did too!!
That's sad...why did you never know your grandfather or sister?

If you don't believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, you'll be judged by him when you die.
When you see him, you can't give him the excuse of "no one proved him to you." You're accountable for your own ignorance of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

On a side note, my phone autocorrects Flying Spaghetti Monster to have capitals whereas it doesn't for "god."
I think that's proof enough the my god is more real than yours.

We know Christianity, and we know what kinds of people it generates. We know your (collective) values and priorities. We know what you care about, and what you don't care about.
So then you guess. Nice.
For example, compare the numbers of posts in this thread from Christians complaining about gays or blasphemy with the number about unjust death.
I will. But first you compare the number if atheists complaining about Christianity instead of unjust death.

Go.
You express concern for American troops, but not the victims of the collateral damage they inflict. I've seen the bumper stickers.
That's how we know. We know you.
You get your info from bumper sticker?!?

You think posting some ludicrous ideas on an Internet thread is "doing something"??

No.
Good, cuz it isn't.
I think that posting good ideas is doing something. Suggestions for a revised Constitution stimulates thought. It focuses on specific problems and offers specific solutions.


Yes, I read your um......proposal. It stinks, to be frank. It's set up just for little ole you, not the American public.
If you studied it, you would see that your problem has no hope of a solution by voting for a Democrat or Republican, and that your government isn't really yours any more.
I don't need to study it, remember? I only need to read it, which I did.

According to you, "reading it" makes one an expert.

Oh, and I do vote either Democrat or Republican.
Your worst problem is lobbying. You can't have democracy in an environment where "voting" is done with dollars.
I don't lobby and I don't vote with money, what are you talking about?!

You "haven't seen a single post from [me] about the murder of innocents"? Really?

I've stated numerous times that is the reason that America goes to war, to save the innocent from dying. What Hussein did to the people of Kuwait and to the people of his own country was inexcusable and it demanded military intervention to stop him.

I know you think holding up a protest sign that says "down with Hussein" would've worked, but you'd be wrong.

<quoted text>
Which justification was that one? I've forgotten the order. I know that WMDs was the first lie offered as a justification. Which came next - the murder of innocents excuse or the al-Qaeda ruse?
Incidentally, that invasion caused an expansion of al-Qaeda. From Wiki :
"al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), also known as al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia, is the Iraqi division of the international Salafi jihadi militant organization al-Qaeda. It is part of the Iraqi insurgency. The group was founded in 2003 as a reaction to the American-led invasion and occupation of Iraq"
Nice work.
And America is making new blood enemies with every drone attack.
We needed you to be a little more informed and a little more critical in your thinking - not to believe whatever lie you were told next.
But don't let it trouble you. If it's more comfortable, go wave a flag and throw on a Toby Keith CD.
A CD? Dude, what?

Yes, I can tell.
How is being black like being a Christian?
It's not, I was being facetious, not literal.

Just to demonstrate your bigotry.

You don't recognize it in yourself, I was hop if you would by changing the "black" in your post to "Christian".

I guess your bigotry is so entrenched in your psyche you still can't tell.
One is the result of genetics, has no bearing on the character of the individual, and is none of anybody's business, while the other is a choice with associated behaviors that are my business when they affect me and the people I care about.
Huh... Just like the difference between race and sexual preference...
Furthermore, my characterizations of how the collective of Christians appears does not mean that I think that every Christians is exactly like that.
HA HA HA hahaha!!!!

I'm not buying THAT load of crap.
Perhaps you are referring to my characterization of German Christians in World War II, who I accused of moral laxity for sitting idly by while Hitler killed Jews in the name of their god.
You haven't demonstrated that they did, I'm not taking your word for it.
I generally speak about Christians collectively - often as "the church." It's an unflattering review. That doesn't make me a bigot. It makes me a critic.
A critic? Lol, no that makes you a bigoted stereotyping fool.

Oops! I just insulted you. I better hope no one notices...

You reveal more of yourself than you apparently know. It's not hard to pass judgment on that comment. Watch: That was passive-aggressive mean spiritedness. And here's the rationale.
Are you really as indifferent as you think your words suggest?
I also don't care whether gays marry or not. But unlike you, I support the rights of gay couples to make that choice for themselves, meaning I favor law that supports that choice, and would speak out for and vote for such a law.
You're nothing like that. You won't help at all. I don't see indifference. I see mean spiritedness trying to pass as neutrality.
I would think that most people would either speak out or vote in favor of or against such a thing. Saying that you would do neither just doesn't ring as sincere.
That you don't see yourself this way in no way invalidates the opinion, nor makes it a guess or assumption. There is evidence for it.
I told you I don't care if gays marry and I meant it. Which is why I stay away from it (legally) and do nothing to promote or hinder it. It's called apathy - I just don't care.

You on the other hand claim to not care about it but then write "I support the rights of gay couples to make that choice for themselves, meaning I favor law that supports that choice, and would speak out for and vote for such a law" which shows that you DO care and have an interest in it.

Now either opinion makes you and I right or wrong. It's just our opinions.

For the love of God, respect my opinion.

@MARK.....Responding here for space. You are wrong about who Jesus considers neighbors. In the book of Luke is where He specifically describes what makes one a good neighbor and the choice of the Good Samaritan was not coincidental.Samaria often was in conflict with the Jewish people and Samaritans were not thought of positively by Jews and vice versa. Yet Jesus chose a Samaritan for that parable. He also says in the book of Matthew that you have been told to love your neighbor and hate your enemy but He tells you you must love your enemy and pray for those who would persecute you. So Jesus had an all inclusive message of love and also told people to leave the judging to God. As far as slaves and murder, the United States has the same history. Do you hate your country or the Constitution? Or do you put the blame where it belongs, on the individuals who comitted the crimes?

I am going to stop you right there since you are an ignorant bigot. You have no idea what my church teaches me. The priests in my church are in their 80's and still do more volunteer work than most people on the planet. The kind, loving old men who don't have a mean bone in their body. They teach love and forgiveness and trying to find little ways each day to make someone else's life just a little bit easier. They teach us to be more like Jesus. They teach us not to give up or to be lazy as those are just excuses and even though it is hard sometimes, that we have all been blessed and we should show our gratitude for that by helping the less fortunate. My church teaches it doesn't have to be money, that sometimes the greatest thing you can give someone is your time. It is why I volunteered in a program where elderly people set up times for people from the parish to come visit them. I talked to a women in her early 90's that knew more about the Detroit Pistons than I did and watches every game
You are simply a bigot who thinks he knows what goes on in tens of thousands of churches around the country but you know nothing.
You are a deserter of church and country and it wouldn't surprise me if your bigotry was nothing more than your way to justify your already existing hate of people. You are a bitter man who apparently never got the love and popularity he so craved so he goes around the Internet searching out needy younger people and trying to talk cool in hopes of impressing them. You regurgitate Wikipedia in hopes of making yourself look intelligent to them and rarely stray off of two subjects to keep up the facade. You make up an imaginary demographic and keep saying hilarious things that imply you are changing the world! At the end of the day, at the end of your life for that matter, you will be the same loser you have always been and the church will still be going strong

This post caught my attention...
Can you direct me back to where LeLe admits she is not a Christian and never has been? I am curious to read it.
No offense intended but I would not have the interest in spending hours going thru back posts just to satisfy your curiosity. However she didnt deny it and her defense was she never claimed to be a saint.And when talking about Jesus the other day and saying some people who claim to follow Him act poorly, she referred to Christ as "their Lord". However a much quicker way would be just ask her yourself if she believes the Bible.(T) PEACE
