You religious ones always favor pointing outward at nasty stuff and pointing at your selves as HOLY-ones.
Silly people NEED religion to puff their egos to grandiose proportions.

I suppose the point is that a person is affected by the society in which they live. And being part of the Commonwealth, you may deny it, but you exhibit its schizophrenic response concerning Islam. Modern Britain more or less denies religion, so that it can contain religion. And you do this as well.

Christians consider themselves as being sinners, and unworthy of God's Gift. No ego involved. What you want to see, is what you see.

I will ask it again and see if any of you devout religious believers will respond.
Do any of you believe that without religion ... you would be evil???

It is quite evident ....You ask loaded questions...because you want

Although I have grown to believe that a large part of the Roman Catholic organized religion is more about power and control than spiritual enlightenment, it is difficult and sometimes emotionally disturbing for me to think that everything about organized religion is corrupt. Coupled with the evangelical and fundementalist view of scripture, it would appear that evil has it's hooks firmly implanted in our spiritual development. When I consider the dark side of the "organized" church, I turn to the new testament and remember the ways of Jesus. He was forgiving and his gospel is love. Although I am having my own personal issues with same sex marriage, Jesus calls us not to be judgemental, to love, to forgive, even our enemies. I'm stuck with this human condition and can only try harder.

All preachers preach what the gods WANT us to believe, how we must behave, how we must not behave, and how we will be rewarded, or punished.
Religious preachers are scam-artists. They come in disguises as tellers of truth.
You will never hear such preachers say "I don't know the answers ... I just have questions."

You should know you from personal experience have preached 56,828 sermons

God made earth Holy with out the pollution of sin

The whole earth reacts to sin. and it effects all inhabitants...

It convulses with earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes,plagues

Volcanic eruptions etc...

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

who="jethro8" Science has never disproved anything in the Bible and it never will.....jethro: that's not quite true LT,it has proven no great flood took place, the massacre of thousands of new born's by herod never took place, the earth is older than 10,000 yrs. which religion states it is, it's million/billions of years old, dino's and man never lived side by side, except the wooly mammoth, and lacking the technology, we can't prove if anything in the sea was alive the same time man was except the whale, sharks, whale-sharks, anything else would be a guess right now until something is found.... continued.

**********
Jethro...you are reading too many 'modern' history books. People of this century are imagining what went on thousands of years ago.

Archaeologists are turning up new proofs continually. You say that Herod never murdered the babies? And you have PROOF? Funny, your only 'proof' is that you don't have any proof...either way!

Pharoah's chariot wheels have been found in the Red Sea. Abraham's home city of UR was recently uncovered by archaeologists.

Keep your eyes open. It ain't over till it's over...

Evidently the Roman Catholics believe that the redemption of the body takes place when some one dies..

The believe that the dead are in the presence of Jesus

as mediators between Him and themselves..

Question

What profit is it to die and go to be with God

if one has to continually be aware of the ungodliness and sin upon the earth...

That would not be heaven,,,

Heaven is supposed to where

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

In religion, pride comes before the admittance of "I don't know the answers. I only know what I have been taught to believe by other humans."

Devotees to the cults are warned of such pride, but because they are IN religion they don't perceive that their preaching stems FROM pride.

I barely escaped religion before I died.

Seventy years is a long time to be led around and around and around by conflicting theological baffle gas.

What a relief it's been to not have to cater to such ridiculous nonsense.

When I die, I will find out the truth ... or not!

But until then, my mind is at peace with the concept I have that religion is not at all necessary and it's more often than not the worst disturber of peace to even infect the human race.

If you believe that, you are indeed a "willful" idiot!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

The Grapple Tree (Harpagophytum procumbens) of South Africa produces a fearsome fruit called the “Devil’s Claw” which has been known to kill a lion. The fruit is covered in fierce hooks, which latch on to passing animals. In trying to shake the fruit off, the animal disperses the seeds but at the same time, the hooks sink deeper into the creature’s flesh. If the animal touches the fruit with its mouth, the fruit will attach itself to the animal’s jaw, inflicting great pain and preventing it from eating. Antelopes are usually the victims.

I watched a program about a young woman who survived a horrific life in war-torn Bosnia. She escaped to America where she found a job cleaning rooms in an upscale hotel. She worked hard, was well accepted and respected by other staff and felt safe in her new environment.

A man who previously worked at that same establishment as a maintenance man broke into a room where she was cleaning. He raped her first and then strangled her with a coat-hanger twisting it tighter and tighter around her neck.

He killed a few more women in other hotels before the police caught him and he is now incarcerated.

Such was the life of this poor woman who caught a glimmer of happiness before dying a horrible death.

The creator (according to theology) saw it all unfold and decided that as a sinner she deserved to suffer her horrible fate.

Stupid dogmas!!!
