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.

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.

You flunked the test.

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.

Jesus first had to exist to say anything. And if all those other sons of gods supposedly came to earth once and never came again ... my guess is the mythical Jesus will not show either.

Myths are not what they seem.

It's possible that as little we specks of some sort of life that came from other planets, life started and evolved on earth from that point. But I don't believe that humans flew in on space ships to start the human race on earth, and then left to go back home ... wherever that might have been.
To me, that is as silly as the idea that a creator exists and cares about who is good and who is bad.
I believe it's all the stuff of nonsensical mythology.
Tested and confirmed evolutionary theory says we didn't arrive intact by UFO. But it would have no problem with the spec theory.

However, we have replicated the beginnings of life in a laboratory.

We have also created completely new, self-replicating life forms from existing life (a new modified version of one of the simplest bacteria on earth).

That's my faith. I don't say you guys lie just because you believe in certain aspects of Christianity. I say you lie because you knowingly post slander to falsely accuse us. I also believe you lie because you sometimes manipulate sacred scripture to mean something else that you could not possibly really subscribe too.
Example:'Christ is not God'. I don't believe for a second you really think that Ox. I think you're just playing around with Holy Scripture to taunt us. You couldn't be a Christian and go against God like that ..
Hey, by all means if you choose to believe Christ wanted us to go by our own interpretations in Bible Alone, than have at it. I would think you'd need to provide some scripture where He commands it, but oh well.
I do not interpret Scripture...I do not use my own understanding...I am led to all truth by the Holy Spirit..

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

One question...by what reason do you reject the Catholic encyclopedia teaching: Christ the Incarnate Son of God and redeemer of the human race....

Sheez, I really didn't know you are that infatuated with my belief.

Like I said - I've spoken many times on this forum about my beliefs, but it will require you to take the effort and go and read them, if you want to really know what they are all about.

BTW - correct on being an ex-Catholic - since I was 16.

Even pope Benedict admitted to believing in evolution, but that was only if the theory "included" the idea that "god" created it first.
He has to fit Adam and Eve into the picture and the idea that a Jewish god in the sky impregnated a Jewish woman on earth and out popped a baby Jew who later supported ONLY the Catholic religion.
:)
On top of that, the new Jewish (catholic) church invented anti-semitism, to be used against the old Jews.

"The Jews killed Christ."

They even trained a former altar boy named Adolf to wipe out the ones who remained.
