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.

<quoted text>
Where has God asked or demenaded Christians to kill in the NT?
Thats easy to descern for most.
You like many others, are trying to apply the OT with the NT..
The context here is that this was towards the beginning of Jesus' ministry; Jesus was now ready to give more detailed teaching to His disciples, many of whom would be instrumental in laying the foundations of the Church. Jesus wanted to ensure that the disciples correctly understood that the Old Testament still held a valid place in the Scriptures..
Matthew 5;18
For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.
The preceding verses were so opposed to the teachings of the scribes and Pharisees that some might assert that he was a destroyer of the law. He replies that he has not come to destroy it, but to fulfil. He does not say that he has come to perpetuate it. To fulfil. To complete its purpose. He was the end of the law. It was a "schoolmaster to bring us to Christ" (Gal. 3:24), but "after faith is come we are no longer under the schoolmaster."
No, he said that he was not here to destroy the laws, he was here to fulfill the prophecy. Explain how a law can be fulfilled.

The other two major points are; not one dot shall be taken from the law, until heaven and Earth pass away.

Earth has not passed away! Trust me on this! I live there.

Jesus goes on to say, "until all is fulfilled". Has all the prophecies been fulfilled? Has the prophecy on the second coming been fulfilled?

No. So there are three major clues for you that god's laws, according to the bible, are still as valid today as they ever were.

<quoted text>Who established that? This is the problem, someone makes up a definition and do so without proof, and then many just grab hold of it. No, faith is what you choose to believe in or not believe in.
Do you believe and trust in the people or somethings that presented to you evolution, speciation, black holes, time and space measurements and many things that people present and most place blind trust in???
As for God or no God, then you have faith in your uncertainty and that the evidence presented is not sufficient for you. You do have enough faith to believe that each time you turn your car on, it will not blow up and kill your family and you.
Here's were you fail. I do not have blind faith in science. Here is my analogy on science and religion.

Think a platform with stairs reaching far up into the sky and ending at another platform. We'll call that science.

Now imagine another platform and way up in the sky is another platform. There are no steps, just two platforms. We'll call that religion.

While I may not know or understand everything about science, there are these steps that we can view, test, retest and verify. That means that there is proof.

In religion, there are not verifiable, viewable steps. To get from one platform to the next requires blind faith. We cannot even talk to anyone who has made it to the top platform. In science, I can talk to millions who have walked up the stairs.

When christians use the word faith on the non-faithful, they are being dishonest.

I don't have blind faith that my child is going to come home when I tell them. I have taken steps to train my child to be respectful and obey. I don't have faith that I am going to wake up in the morning. I have successfully done so 18,809 times, why would I think tomorrow would be different?

NO, you serve no purpose, except as the alter ego of good. As for God, he existed long before evil entered into being. I am certain that His purpose remained and remains, despite the presence of you and evil.
The alter ego is the ID to your ego and an issue in your psyche which permeates your decisions and influences your actions and reactions.

<quoted text>Pay attention, if you do not believe that there is a God, then despite what you think you read, then you must believe that these people did the killing on their own. You therefore can not contribute the killings to God and it is senseless for you to argue that.
Of course I do not contribute the killings to god! What is your point? I blame it on brainwashing. The bible clearly states that god wants its follower to kill non-believers.
TRUTHS BUSTER wrote:
If you lack analytic critical thinking, then perhaps you should consider another hobby besides debate.
Now, like I said, if you decide that there is a God who made the order, then he is not human or subject to human emotions and laws. To God, you are as the ant is to man.
Sorry, if you thought you were more. You are not.
If this is beyond you, it is,since you do not have enough information to consider whether there is a God or not, then don't get trapped in small spaces.
I have plenty of information showing that the god of the bible does not exist.

The bible states that god does have the same emotions that it gave angels and humans. I agree, it is pretty silly, isn't it?

<quoted text>first point....if you are an atheist then you should be able to tell us what you are and we do not need to go to a link....
Second, If God does not intervene in your life is that proof that there is no God? No, that is just proof that God has not intervenes in your life. So, until you are worthy of God intervening in your life, freewill and choice, you are stuck with no evidence of God and no evidence of no God. It then becomes simply your self serving and non-evidentiary choice of what you freely choose to believe.
What proof do you have that a god or gods exist?

I said it was about correcting the bible? You hit your head while digging ditches?

I said no such thing.

So correct yourself and stop cherry picking verses and howling that other verses are taken out of context.

In a biblical knowledge debate I would go circles around you.

Now rest up and put some ice on your wounds Monday will be here soon and there will be grunt work for you to do.

That is more your speed anyways.

<quoted text>HA! I knew it. You DO think that verse is talking about correcting the bible.

You're not schooled in the bible at all - you have an elementary understanding of it, which is typical of atheists.

That verse is talking about correcting yourself, not the bible.

Without observable proof there is a god we people of reason have no logical rational to believe.

Your holy book tells the story of his crimes against humanity. Most likely what really happened is barbarians wanted to kill, rape and pillage and later claim some Jewish sky wizard told them to do it.
TRUTHS BUSTER wrote:
<quoted text>If you reject that there is a God, then God ordered no killing, it was just man deciding to kill. Now, if you accept as you claim that God ordered a killing, then you accept that He is Go and not a man. So, that his killing is even less so than you killing time or killing an ant. I am certain that the ant screams at you "murderer". Also, consider that you to God are another life form, like plants. So, each time you step on grass, the grass would scream " murderer, murderer".

On the other hand if you accept that animals and plants are here for our purpose, then you must accept that the giver of that purpose, God, put us here for his purpose.

The thing that you must know is this, God gives life and appoints the time. If you live to be 120, then so be it. If God decides that you are a waste of air and space, then your life may be cut-off at age 20. So, stop killing time, it may scream at you "murderer, murderer".

Christianity says a non Christian man can kill his wife and children also non Christian, get caught go to jail say rub a dub dub Jesus convert and he go to heaven while his victims are in hell or purgatory! This is true and you know it.

Such a sick twisted evil religion!

And Jesus specifically said he was not there to change even one word of the ancient Jewish prophets let alone abolish their laws.
