Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I take it you don't like being called a shyster.

Understandable.

Why you resort to crudity instead of intellectual erudity. Shysters do that.

<quoted text>what were the "guys" right about?
As I told you before, just because someone calls themselves a Christian, does not mean they know Jesus Christ. A spiritual indwelling is what is needed for someone to know Jesus Christ. A "Christian" without a spiritual connection to the Christ, only has a religion.
Christianity...saves no one. Only Jesus saves. Christianity is man-made. Jesus never called anyone to Christianity, Jesus called people to Him, that they may be saved.
They said you were crazy and that I have more common sense than you, lol!

Hang on, in other post you said that christianity doesn't need me and is doing good without me, but now you're saying not every christian is a true believer in Jesus?

That's what I said, I believe in Jesus but not the bible.

If I had been raised a Mormon I would most likely would be a Mormon. Or if I had been raised a Buddhist than I would believe in Buddha.
Since I was exposed to both Christianity and Atheism. I reached out to God at an early age and found out God is real. How do I know? Well itís like this, I know beyond any doubt.
Over the years God has blessed me, give me direction, and God has spoken to me many times. Oh he doesnít have these long conversations with me. What he has to say he can say in just a few words.
I have seen his working of miracles first hand. I canít share them with you because of your unbelief. But I have seen many, real live miracles. One of them was my Brother, Mark.
He was a hopeless alcoholic with a extensive criminal record. He was also dangerous. One time the Houston SWAT Team had to go after him because he had taken a hostage with a pump shotgun.
Mark started drinking when he was 16 and didnít stop until he was 42. Doctor you have been around the block long enough to know how difficult it is for someone to stop an addiction. All I can say it was real bad. Mark was impossible to deal with.
He went to church one night and God delivered him of alcohol and drug abuse. Heís been drug and alcohol free for five years now. You would have to know and seen Mark from where he was to what he is today to understand.
God gave him a new life with a new beginning. Thatís something Atheism canít do for someone. How do I know God is real. Look at my Brother today. Heís clean and sober. Has a good job and goes to church regularly.
To bad neither you nor your brother had the inner strength to deal directly with your problems. One of the dangers of relying on an imaginary outside agent to guide you throughout adversity, is you don't learn to develop this inner strength. It's a crutch, a false sense of comfort, in the end it can only weaken you. Curled up in a ball whining for God to "please help me" instead of standing on your own two feet and facing the world like a man. You end up a whimpering child, begging your sky daddy to help and comfort you.

prayer should be in school so chldren can be taught to open heart and soul to a higher power. They should be educated in religion and spiritual truth. That way they will have knowlege to choose thier faith when mature enough to understand truth from the word, or thier own experince. Not be subject to so much hate and confusion. They should be protected from ignorance of stupid people, allow them to be taught the history of presidents, wars, law and look at how confusing it is to us we can`t trust goverment and it is not because of religon,or race it is because ignorance. Learn about welfare, durg users, children who have never know trust or love. They can not even depend on a church, Look how they have even confused our faith and judgment. We should focus on every religon and faith right along with goverment and law. The truth will always lead to the word. Their is a Higher power.

You donít want to let any of that rich aroma escape. Suck it deep into the lungs for that transfer of carcinogens into the hemoglobin. Dope heads rule! Another way to say it is, sh** heads rule!
You do know that there are beneficial drugs,right? Morphine, Codeine, Oxycodone, etc are opiates. Just like Heroin is an opiate. You allow politicians to decide which drugs are good and which ones are bad. Seems a bit silly to me.

lol..that's typical of these atheists.

Well..Christianity is growing, which is good. But only Jesus really knows how many of these Christians are authentic Christians that have a spiritual relationship with Him...and who the false hypocritical Christians are that have fallen away or only have a title "christian", own a bible, and go to church.

You believe in Jesus? is Jesus your personal Lord and Savior and the only God you serve? or do you just believe in Jesus because of his teachings? they are not the same thing. Many people believe Jesus existed and agree with His teachings, but that alone does them no good.

Dave.

You posted to Aerobatty, chiding him for smoking pot, and sarcastically telling him to suck deep. Knowing of your cigarette smoking habit, I posted to you, suggesting the same.

No crudity. Just your dirty-old-man mind.

Can I help you with anything else?

I don't think it matters what your belief is, if that belief is making you a better human-being, then go for it. Well, that's what I think.
You're not like most people, Clementia.

That's a good thing.

I used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I suppose you don't have a problem with that, though, do you.
Yes I do, cigs are killers.

Homey, take a junior college course on writing and basic sentence structure. In fact you and Catcher would both being doing yourself a favor by learning how to write. Neither one of you write worth a sh**.

Of course there're beneficial legal drugs. We were talking about the illegal ones.
