Preachers that are hired by god often shout it out!
It seems that god prefers shouting matches by his followers concerning who he loves.
Even physical violence doesn't seem to bother "him."
God just sleeps his life away
While his greedy children PLAY

Jesus said, "He that has ears, let them be shouted into."

OK. I might be paraphrasing.

I will relate to you a story. It is that of the MU(original "American"
indian). The MU were a people of the Pacific. Maybe 20,000 or more years ago. Their land has "sunk" in the Pacific-just as Atlantis in the Atlantic (southern).
The original inhabitant was not of this planet. He was from without this solar system.(I can not recall his name at this moment).
ANYWAY... he was not happy with his circumstance in the place where he dwelled. He had spoken to this individual who had spoken of him of a "blue" planet which was wonderful in aspect and becoming of fortitude. He spoke with his grandfather(one of wisdom) and asked his permission to travel and settle in this new world. His grandfather gave his permission and support for his venture to him and his famly..The planet was what we know as "earth"...and he took this expansive venture in the "wings if the eagle" of none other than "ENKI"(who was unknown to anyone other than the Sumerians-Thousands of years before this event-[and half a world apart]).
This is not the entire revelation, but it is sufficient to make the point.
ENKI IS INDEED [Quetzalcoatl]!
Thanks for sharing that myth. Religion (created by humans) has a long history, but there's no doubt about it that the ones who believed the gods favored them were as certain back then as the religious right-fighters are of today.

Once the gossip started, it took off like a house on fire ... morphing and twisting it's tales into more and more tales.

who="Tony17" There was no garden before creation. In the beginning when God originally created everything in the universe,not the RE-CREATION that He did after the world became void and without form,GOD GAVE SATAN AUTHORITY OVER ALL THE WORLD. That's why
Satan could offer Christ the riches and the governments of the world if He worshipped him. They were his to give. Satan was possibly also a High Priest as well before he fell. One needs to study the precious stones in Ezekiel 28 that was Satan's covering. They are the same stones that the High Priest of Israel wore. There is much many of you still need to learn before you will begin to see that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is Satan.

**********
God did not give Satan authority over the world.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and LET THEM HAVE DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and HAVE DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

When Adam obeyed Satan's directive (eat the fruit), he gave HIS dominion to Satan. Jesus came to take that dominion back...and He did not fall for Satan's offer to 'give' it to Him. It was already His, and He knew it.

There is soooo much more to it than that. And who and what does the Abrahamic religion denigrate?
Why did they destroy the library of Alexandria?
Why do you suppose I have stated so many times that who I spoke with was "misled". I -was -NOT -lying!
I believe that religious myths valued as certainties always mislead and still mislead believers.

I don't cotton to any religious myths as being based on truth.

I'm satisfied to not know the answers to what remains mysteries.

Let me guess, your sky fable created the world in seven days 6,000 years ago? You're cult could never explain the dinosaur bones when they were discovered. THE UNIVERSE WAS CREATED by DARK MATTER ROUGHLY 14.8 BILLION YEARS AGO! We know this by temperature readings. After the big bang the universe continues to expand. It is infinitesimal! And it's hard to imagine that we are the only beings living. There are literally billions of stars and planets, and moons out there. You really want to tell me that Zeus created those things? Follow the money trail you simple minded fools. It was always about the power. Pilot was afraid of the political uproar being created by the Hebrew tribes, Jesus wasn't even real! A virgin birth...ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Sure Muhammad was visited by the angel Gabriel, on his flying unicorn in the middle of the desert and told him that he was the final prophet and Allah's revelation. He flew through the seven layers of the sky for 11 years to write down his holy words via the Quran. What a bunch of garbage...all of it...JUNK NONSENSE!

I don't believe that people ever survived by peaceful means. The aggressors always wanted more land and more control over others. It's the basic nature of the human beast.

The Egyptians did worship gods.

Heaven is a KINGDOM. We know who the King is, so who is the Queen?
Jesus told you to search the scriptures Jack, so tell us who the Queen would be?
**********
The Word says plainly that Israel is the wife of God. It also declares The Raptured Church to be the Bride of Christ. All argument about THE church will be settled when the CHURCH that God is building is caught up to be with Him, and is part of the wedding supper.(Hint: THE church is invisible. It is part of every nation, tribe and tongue. It is not yours, or mine, or theirs...it is HIS.)
It would be a twisted mess to present a natural human being (Mary) to be both the mother and the bride of our Savior!
KayMarie
AGREED Kay. The Catholics claim of course that Mary is Queen,because many good kings of Israel had mothers who were Queens,and Mary is such.BUT, the problem with that is Mary was never a Queen,nor was she of royal Blood,and she is not the wife of God our Father.

Mary cannot be Queen of heaven as God in Three Persons perfect Trinity is the Royal family in and of H I M S E L F.The word King is our English definition of the highest leader in the realm of leadership.We only go by the word KING,rather than Emperor or Czar as it were.Human words cannot truly define the ultimate Regency of G o d,as Creator,He is altogether the total Administration of Deity.We need not define a female part to H I S realm of being a King,because G o d is Perfectly the title of His Authority and Majesty on High.The word King is really not completely sufficient enough to hold His Majesty,but naturally as we can in our limitations fathom such an OFFICE, the word King as given in our English vernacular is part of the written description for H I M in Scripture.NOT that He needs a female counterpart as a Queen.

Human logic for God as King and Him having a Queen is purely what is posted here:HUMAN LOGIC. God is ONE,and in Three Persons:Father, Son and Holy Spirit.All sufficient,completely harmonious in Will,Desire,Thought and DEED!

There never was a need in the Trinity to absorb a human concept of Male King and Female Queen,and NOW in the present of our own understanding of such things,a King and a Queen is purely a Physical realm of definiting the Leadership over a dynasty or kingdom.

G o d is complete male and female in character,form and logic.We humans are not able to comprehend the dynamics of God's character in the Male or female,therefore it is basically wrong to define God as a Male figure,even though we call God a HE,HIM and so on.We are upset when we see God described as a she,as we now see religious groups praising and worshipping WISDOM or Sophia. But that error is understandable,as human beings want to relate to the FEMALE in God,especially women,of course you can relate to that.

However God is complete in both the male and female,Father is our limited term for God as Omniscient and Sovereign,a loving Parent in the male sense.As we see fathers as head of households,and the most noble figure of a caring father who loves and protects h i s children.But God is remarkably the father-mother of us all,equally giving to us the attributes of both in Love,mercy,and compassion.YET having the authority of a father,stern at times,but merciful as well.The mothers who raise children alone without a husband can relate to being both a father and a mother to their offspring.

God is all consuming in the Trinity of Persons,but ONE in total Character as to what the Father,the Son and the Holy Spirit exude in Love,purpose,deed,and most of all WILL,as Jesus so strongly told us we need to do the Father's Will.Jesus does not need a bride,a woman as it were,but He chooses to marry the whole body of Christ the CHURCH,and that is called His future bride.Not a particular female person,as that is not the point,but we can understand that concept as it relates to US.

Is yours the voice of experience? Did or does your husband sodomize you? Is that why you hate men?
There's no need to be nasty.

My point was that if your supposed god hates sodomy, he also hates that heterosexuals perform sodomy on their wives, and that means it's not about homosexuality ... it's about sodomy ... period.

Silly dogmas for silly people.

More Egyptian mythology

From the book compiled by Larousse … World Mythology

The doctrine of Aten

Rejecting polytheism with its densely interwoven mythology, Amenophis IV recognized only one god.

But this sublime doctrine, founded on the principle of monotheism and proclaiming love of one’s fellow men, did not have time to take root during the relatively short reign of the pharaoh who initiated it. Sincere belief was probably restricted to a relatively small circle of followers, while the mass of the population remained secretly attached to the religion of their ancestors. When Akhenaten died, his opponents reappeared and forced the reformer’s weak successors to reinstate Amun and the other banished gods.

New fads are certain to have new followers.

Each religious cult though history placed high value ONLY its own dogmas.

It's just the way religion "operates."

Well, that's not entirely correct.

There likely was an historical Jesus.

And the best critical scholars would agree with that: Pagels, Ehrman, Koester, Tabor, Charlesworth, Smith, Beck, Metzger, et al.

But a Christ?

Naw.
