<quoted text>Actually there are a few scenes that might. Lincoln was a very honorable man, which is why I have always admired him so much. He did what was right, because it was right. He did not do what others told him to just because it was the "popular" thing to do. He was very moral, and principled. Little trivia, in one scene he looks at his watch. The ticking sound that you hear is the actual ticking sound that Lincoln himself heard, as the sound was recorded from the Smithsonian from his very watch. I get chills when I watch that scene knowing that. Really cool. Also, he was not religious. He was a Rationalist. Clearly he wouldn't have done much of what he had if he were religious. All the more reason to respect him.
You guys don't understand what being religious is.

I don't know much about him so i can't say anything.

I know plants r alive too, but i got to eat something to live. I say sorry to God for that, but some people never say sorry, they think what they do is right.

I can't cope with animals getting unnecessary pain, i just can't. It's just the way i am, it got nothing to do with me being good or bad.

I'm not a violent person, and I don't believe in war, but I would gladly lay my life down to protect the sanctity of this great nation. It is such a privilege to be here, and I just wish that politicians would remember that, instead of constantly bickering with each other all the time., but I digress. You will love the movie, and you will admire Lincoln for his great character and all he did for this great nation and all within it.

Faith is just commitment to a belief. If you have faith in God, you have committed belief in God. You can't be dissuaded. Losing your faith would be questioning your beliefs. Questioning your beliefs is something everyone should do if they care if what they believe in is actually true. If they don't care, if they believe for reasons other than wanting to know the truth, they need faith.
I don't have faith in a belief in God. I have faith in God. There is a difference. I don't expect you to understand.
This is why that verse was written, to keep people committed, to keep them from questioning. That's exactly what you want when you're misleading someone. A true claim holds up under close scrutiny. True claims don't require faith.
People don't stay comitted because of a verse, Tide. Tey stay comitted because of their faith. The verse is like using a roadmap to get you home. You don't sleep on the map, you sleep at home by using the map to get you there.
So, do you understand that when a believer in a deity other than yours has faith in their god, they can believe just as strongly and for the same reasons as you do? Do you know why? Are you able to consider it?
You probably aren't even able to approach this. The reason is that your worldview is based on faith. You can't afford to see faith for what it is, because then there's a good chance your house of cards will fall down. There is a protection mechanism in your brain that won't allow you to make these connections. If you did, you'd have to suppress any realizations you might come to.
Is any of this getting through?
Yes. Thank you. You don't have a clue to what real faith is, only a textbook definition. It kinda sounds like Koder trying to define what constitutes love )no offense).

That's the thing with me, i don't have confidence like that. I can get good grades in a test but i still can't act like i know it all. Like, if my lecturer asks me a question and I 100% know the answer, i will still say, " i THINK the answer is...." and he's like, "do u think or do u know?" I beat around the bush a lot, it's just a habit i have. I thought they might have some valid argument or something.
Sounds more like self esteem than anything. Seriously, I bet you've accomplished a lot in your life, and helped a lot of people along the way. This means you're special and you should be proud about that. I have no doubt that you're a light in this world. Shine on and don't worry about the details. Confidence isn't something that you earn. You claim it by appreciating the wacky, endlessly optimistic, passionately uninhibited free spirit which is inside your beautiful heart, the heart that makes you uniquely you. If I were your teacher I would have told you that I was going to call on you everyday until you could answer a question without saying "I think".:p

we've been born into captivity through sin; i.e., we lost our original connection to God in the garden when we made the moral decision to believe an accusation against Him and ever since we've been slaves of the kingdom of darkness.

God isn't a physical being that you can prove exists in the physical realm. Just like you can't prove that love exists.
Follow along here, hukt. You're losing ground.
You're the one with a problem following along.

It isn't about proving you have a wife... or that you love her.

Those are red herrings you're throwing into the discussion

I'm standing on solid ground here.

Love is demonstrable... but that isn't the point. I never said I could prove love exists.

You said you have proof there's a god.

Prove there's a god.

You have never communicated with "god". There is no reason for "god" to single you out of the entire universe and communicate with you. If you think that this is in error, then you are schizophrenic. You know right from wrong. If you're a good person then you'll follow what's right. If you're a bad person then you'll follow what's wrong. Simple as that.
