Like June, most the whole world that you claim Jesus died for choose not to believe it.
I wonder why not? Most didn't have it drilled into their heads since childhood like you.
Why did God choose you to be given a head-start?
Sorry never had it drilled in my head as a child. Far from it.
LOL.
Everyone has a sad story , all the bad stuff in the world is not God's doing.
Its because man wanted to please themselves, more then God.
Once man has set his own course in life God will not but in, unless He is asked to.
He however is always there waiting for us to come to Him and His arms will be open wide to welcome you home.
No matter what man may not forgive the things you done but God will.

Maybe science should diffuse the #2 links and put us all back to the "real time". It might be better for the planet anyway.
I have no idea if your theories are based on truth or over-active imagination.

ONLY if you become a Christian.
THAT is basic Christianity.
the term to "become a Christian" is subjective so let's go to the source and see what Jesus Himself said about how to inherit Eternal Life:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" Jesus (jn 3:16)

as you can see from the above text, Jesus did not say that this requires membership in a certain club nor does it imply that one must adopt certain philosophies in order to qualify; it simply says "whoever believes in Him". the following verses in jn chap 3 (if you care to know the truth) go on to describe what the opposite of believing looks like and why some choose not to believe.

Well maybe that is what many of us hope for ourselves. But as we all perceive life and its meanings from different points of view ... what is better and what is worse are all matters of opinions. And because that is so, it's only natural that we find it impossible to get along.

I don't preach that what I read in books is sacred to me and therefore has to be perceived as sacred to others.
That is the difference.
I post quotes from many different authors on many different subjects, and even I don't always agree with the contents of what I post.
Bible thumpers take ONLY favorite scriptures from the bible and ignore the other scriptures as though they don't exist.
You don't play fair at all, and you seem to believe that habit is the stuff of holiness???
I think NOT.
Many NPD individuals suffer from depression, thoughts of suicide, repeated failed relationship issues, and trouble at work or school. The majority of individuals with NPD in our society will never be officially diagnosed with the disorder. Therefore, learning to identify the traits and characteristics of individuals with NPD can help us protect our families and ourselves.

The DSM-IV-TR defines Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) as “an all-pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration or adulation, and lack of empathy, usually beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts,” such as family life and work. Dr. Sam Vaknin in his book “Malignant Self-Love” provides the following list of nine (9) narcissistic traits of which an individual needs to possess at least five (5) before being diagnosed with NPD.

1. Feels grandiose and self-important (e.g., exaggerates accomplishments, talents, skills, contacts, and personality traits to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements);

2. Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion;

3. Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions);

4. Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious;

5. Feels entitled. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her unreasonable expectations for special and favorable priority treatment;

6. Is interpersonally exploitative and uses others to achieve his or her own ends;

[7. Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with, acknowledge, or accept the feelings, needs, preferences, priorities, and choices of others;]

8. Constantly envious of others and seeks to hurt or destroy the objects of his or her frustration. Suffers from persecutory (paranoid) delusions, as he or she believes that they feel the same about him or her and are likely to act similarly;

9. Behaves arrogantly and haughtily. Feels superior, omnipotent, omniscient, invincible, immune,“above the law”, and omnipresent (magical thinking). Rages when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted by people he or she considers inferior to him or her and unworthy.

Well if your god sees all, then he is watching people have sex.

I suggest you don't be mad at me because I point that out to you.

Actually ... I'll bet that's why a lot of Christians watch pornography. They are comfortable with the idea that "god" watches people have sex all the time, so why shouldn't they?

But ya see, if god is hiding things from you, he must believe you can't handle knowing what he knows. So I suggest you simply don't move and don't think ... then when you die, god can't judge for anything.

Did Universe Always Exist?
After a long time of filtering of such theories many researchers have arrived at one of the most popular present ideas about the
origin of the universe which can be stated concisely in the following way: our universe always existed.

Those aren't the words of Jesus you moron.

No wonder people are leaving Christianity, it seems to be nothing but a club for lunatics, liars and idiots.

Good work killing your own religion.

I don't know those answers, but the theory that makes the most sense to me is that although it continually changes in form, the universe always existed and will always exist.

I don't have faith that I am right about such issues. I have faith that whatever occurred and occurs is beyond me to figure out, and that's fine with me.

Jealousy and bitter attitudes in the framework of religion was what resulted and what still results in people killing each other.

Attitudes such as "How dare you claim that your god is real, when I know that only my god is the real one???"

You won't see how cunning were the theologians who taught that rhetoric as truth ... until you want to see.

Don't you wonder why Catholics fought other Catholics to the death, and Protestants fought other Protestants to the death ... and why, to this day, you are still fighting over whose rendition of scriptures are right and whose are wrong???

The theologians taught you to fight their battles, and you continue to comply.

Ok OX. You asked for it.
My people are ancient. I mean thousands of years. The "blood/cut" I was speaking of is that they are different. The blood is not red when exposed to the air-it is blue. We are different, we were/are hunted.
Yes-we are Pagan(heathen)(according to the "Abrahamic" followers). My mother, I and my siblings are red blood. We are intermingled, as are what is left of my cousins. We are highly intelligent, and extremely fast healing, but we are disappearing fast. As far as I know, all contact has been lost with any others of our blood (about 40 years ago).
You wanted to know.
Now you know.
What does that have to do with calling a plant "bro????!!!"

People who are frantic about their religion being atoned to truth are not at peace. They don't trust if they relax, things will go well. They keep trying to steer others and convince others to follow their lead.

Four years ago I gave up my own religious nonsense, and decided to relax and take life as it comes.

If I try my best to be kind, I can't do any better.

Whatever will be will be.
