What makes your pastor correct ?
Why is his teaching correct and another denomination pastor's teachings false ?
Does he teach OSAS is right or wrong ?
Is the Trinity correct ?
Did he read the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts ?
Nice to meet you BenAdam -- please note I'm not here to prove anything to you -- from all I"ve read thus far I think you are intelligent enough and have formed your own belief system.

I don't need to argue Gods Word but I will say this Heaven is full of denominations and no denominations --

I wonder how many are just afraid to voice their doubts and how many are truly brainwashed. Seems they are either caving to peer pressure or truly insane.
Heck, even children stop deluding themselves about Santa and the Easter Bunny once they realize it is all a facade.

The Hebrew word is El and Elohim.
In Psalm 82 El address some humans and tells them they are all Elohim and Sons of El.
If SOME humans are Gods then ALL humans are Gods.
Why are you such a pathetic liar ?

Curious.
I have a very detailed explanation as to why I know the truth.
Ben gives this half-assed 'info' and you don't ask him the same....
Because I know exactly what he speaks of.

I know he can give a coherent and well reasoned explanation for why he holds the position he has.

You?

Just a lot of non answers and C&P's from websites that you offer up without adding your own reason and explanation ast to why you think or believe as you do.

Face it. You just want to remain quilted within your belief and don't want to explain why you believe as you do.

Fort example; I have no problem in explaining why I think as I do, or in giving the reasons for why I believe what I do.

You rarely, if ever, do that.

That's the Christian way.

Rich and powerful people hold back the plentiful food available! Astounded you even asked the question.... thought everyone could see or understand what is happening, once they have understanding of money, power, greed and politics.

But that does not have a reflection on the Scriptures, that is a straight out reflection on man(kind)...

Pardon the intrusion, but I have no problem with Jesus. I have a problem with the religion that developed in his absence....by the very people that had him killed in the first place.
That being said, I place absolutely NO veracity in their choices of writings or acceptance of scripture as gospel by their auspices for obvious reasons.
No intrusion...

I didn't misread a thing.
Whoever comes to me.... do you think we simply walk towards JESUS and man(kind) will make sure we are fed?? Doesn't work that way, does it G?

PEOPLE ARE STARVING PEOPLE ~ GOD gave us everything we need, in fact, GOD gave us more than we need. I suppose you believe in 3rd world countries too?

I will address that on your behalf, not RR's.
I KNOW what the Bible says. I do not agree with medieval Christian apologetic explaining away Psalm 82.
I believe that humans are real and deities are fantasy.
As such, humans are the closest thing in the real world to what the term "deity" means. Thus, I can "prove" in the real world that Psalm 82 means exactly what it says. We are all Gods.
Yeah, certainly, and to expand upon that thought...

What if the Bible was actually a collection of stories from various periods within mans history and from that cultures perspective - and all theistic cultures - that are meant to show the futility and folly of man in relation to the lengths he will go in order to please a god, revealing that the "god(S)" man tries to appease and placate are no more mentally stable than we are, and in reality created by man?

The culmination of the "folly of gods" being the Jesus story, in which that character essentially said we were on our own, no one needed to be told what was "good" or "bad".

With that final lesson being that we need to just get on with it. Everything that is needed is here, and now, not to be found anywhere else but within and all inclusive of ourselves.

In the years since - nothing in modern times - has been added to any deity belief - by the "god(S).

The irony seems apparent, to me anyway.

Go figure.

Yet, theists of all flavors wait for something that never has shown itself, ever.

Man and the "Folly of god(S)".












P.S - I in no way think that is what the biblical story is. Personally, I think the Bible is a crock. I also think that in and of itself shows it to be exactly that...



If you get me.

GOoD afternoon HFN -- I remember one night not to long ago, when praying "as I couldn't fall asleep" I was naming loved ones in Heaven and naming wonderful musicians and artists already there, and just reflecting on how sweet Heaven already is and how thankful that I knew in my heart it would one day be my eternal home as well --
As the names were rolling thru my mind I was trying to think of the name of dear lady I got to see in person when I was a child at Buck lake Ranch in Indiana -- she always came out with "Howdy" and wore a hat with a price tag hanging from it and a personality that just instantly warmed your heart. Then I said Oh yes, Miss Minnie Pearl.
It wasn't long till I drifted off to sleep. The next morning when I clicked on Facebook - my sister had posted a beautiful picture of Miss Minnie "just out of the blue" --
It was one of those God moments when I just sat here and said God it is so awesome the way you work in my life.
God finds many ways to let us know He hears us and knows our hearts -- TLC
Ahhh ~ Goosebumps received down here, after reading your posting!! Some people, sweet Sister of many, just miss out on so much :)

They don;t realize that the first five books of the Bible are the texts of a polytheistic Hebrew religion. The shift to monotheism in Judaism is still incomplete, Islam and Christianity are even worse.
The greatest example is the existence of the Evil God, Satan. They think that if they don't use the "G word" then it isn't a deity.
Just more proof these religions are only for the ignorant and deceitful.
Yeah, Christians really want to focus on the Jesus! these days, but there's the 'fatherly' Yahweh! waving at them in the background while the Satan! giggles with Ba'al and the ghost of Asherah winks at Mary...and..erm...the Ghost!

Fervently.
Exactly.
The greatest proof that Christianity is false, is Christians themselves.

Ok since you said to I will make my judgment. You are once again and again and again wrong. You Ians, personally, did nothing good for this thread. But I have been on topix a long time and we have survived and are still on topix and will be as long as God has a use for us here.
Have a good day/night
Amen ~ We come from the four corners of the earth (wooops, the 4 directions of the earth) and we find each other!! Those that believe they have resurrected and improved this forum were not here when it started, and they will never understand until they try to understand.... Glad that most of us drop in on occasion, or write often, and we will endure as we have in the past xxx

Blessings of everything nice to you my Quin, SeRaH :)

Yeah.
ArAr's answers aren't answers, they're just "babbles".
There are intelligent and honest devout Christians. You won't find many on Topix.

If it doesn't, then the Bible and Jesus are liars.

You still haven't a clue what the Bible says.
