What kind of faith "IS" that to have in a creator?
I don't believe that if a creator existed that it WOULD be cruel.
That (in big part) is why religion made no sense to me.
Nature is cruel ... but NOT by intention.
Nature can not be measured by human standards of right/wrong, good/bad. It IS. Myths are often used to either reinforce this truth.. or to bury it under lies.

Spinoza makes much sense when he equates God to Nature.

Agreed. And if you read Genesis in Hebrew you would realize that humans and animals are created identically and both are 'nephesh'(In English "Souls") which means "living thing".
The "Essence of God" is the "Essence of Life". When you stop breathing, you stop living and the breath returns to God as the body returns to the Earth.
BTW, what your English translates as Breath and Spirit is more truthfully translated as "essence" from the Hebrew.
In the New Testament

SOUL DEFINED IN GREEK

G5590

psuche&#772;
psoo-khay'
From G5594; breath, that is,(by implication) spirit, abstractly or concretely (the animal sentient principle only; thus distinguished on the one hand from G4151, which is the rational and immortal soul; and on the other from G2222, which is mere vitality, even of plants: these terms thus exactly correspond respectively to the Hebrew [H5315],[H7307] and [H2416]:- heart (+-ily), life, mind, soul,+ us,+ you.

AFTER GENESIS (GOD'S CREATION)

THE DEVIL HAS ATTEMPTED TO PREEMPT GOD..AND HE HAS USED THOSE SUCH AS YOUR SELF to do so..

if there were no genesis...

(G1078

&#947;&#949;&#769; &#957;&#949;&#963; &#953;&#962;
genesis
ghen'-es-is
From the same as G1074; nativity; figuratively nature:- generation, nature (-ral).)

there would be no human beings to attempt to discredit GOD...upstage or copy him...

ONLY THE DEVIL ...THAT IS GOD'S ENEMY.and yours..THAT YOU HAVE SIDED

WITH., to you own destruction.

I don't see us verifying God until He shows His power to all, which it is written in countless manuscripts that this event is to come.
Nope - I don't pick and choose - I use context of what is written.

You can back-peddle all you want, it makes no matter to me.

"I don't see us verifying God until He shows His power to all, which it is written in countless manuscripts that this event is to come."
- One would think "God" must be waiting for something that is really "bad" in order to "come again", huh?

I guess 250,000 people dying is just a drop in the bucket for "God", huh?

You are disillusioned in what you think, because you choose to avoid and utilize facts.

You are probably Catholic, huh?

Child of a Jew ... "When did the Christians in sinuate that Jehovah favored them?

Rabbi ... "When the Christian theologians first in sinuated that a son of Jehovah came to earth to favor ONLY the Christians."

Child ... "Why did those theologians LIE?"

Rabbi ... "They had a desire to start a new religion totally foreign to Judaism."

Child ... "Will Jehovah forgive them for their lies?"

Rabbi ... "I don't know."

who="DeAngelo of Memphis" <quoted text>Actually it was Roman Catholicism which began after Jesus' death but he was a Jew throughout his ministry. The Romans took advantage of his image because to the people he died a hero. So they made his image unto God but Jesus himself did not establish a new religion as these brain-washed Catholics have been taught to believe. Christianity didn't began until people broke away from the Catholic church because pagan rituals were brought into the practice, in which the rebels were called Protestants.

----------
De: Mostly you are right, but we need a note here. Christianity has ALWAYS been, as God promised the Christ from the very beginning.
See it? Christ +-ian (like) is the foundation of Christianity.

Rome 'robbed' the movement some 300 + years after Jesus came.

Martin Luther was far from being the first Protestant. It can be fatal to disagree with 'religious' people's, and be thought a heretic. At least one Protestant group was completely wiped out.

who="HuskerDu" <quoted text>Oooh, forgot to tell you, Topix pulled chickey's threatening posts that shown what she said to me. And others who read this, it was pretty nasty to make someone post back the way I did. Also she was banned and not I. And yes you did do things personal to me, you threatened me with sending my posts to someone. But that person knew what was going on and said nothing was delivered.

Do you own Topix?

<quoted text>I would think that it's logical that we would be accountable for our overall actions and intent throughout our lives, the very same as we are accountable to man in our own system of laws. What about actions that aren't seen by others? What about the heart's intent which can't be proven by man just based on their word. But that's just me! Think about this hypothetical...your mom was brutally murdered and the perp was caught. Due to a technicality he was aquitted and walks free proud of his actions. Now I hope this scenario isn't offensive but it was intended for one to search their own feelings about accountabilty and the hopes that one day those that did wrong will have to answer before a higher power, which many manuscripts suggest. And another note, "self" is the same as that deep down personal relationship with this higher power...something that can be felt individually and can't be scientifically verified as science can't calculate emotional energies. I believe that for anyone to ask for proof would be ignorant (ignoring the facts).
I suggest that people in religion that have extreme emotional highs (hypnosis) from faith that they are special to a god or goddess, take that as being in contact WITH the god or goddess ... which to me is plain silly.

I suggest it's not a good plan to get too carried away with your self as being "ALL-THAT" important.

Protestant groups that first came to America were intent on wiping each other out ... until the supposed founding fathers at least in theory separated government from religion.

Martin Luther was extremely anti-Semitic AND anti-pope AND anti-Islam, and anti-all other religions, AND anti-atheism.

He was a horny old bugger that wanted to marry a nun, and so he indicated that the Jews AND the Catholics, AND the Muslims had got all that Abrahamic literature wrong and that dear old precious Martin had been blessed with Jehovah's one and only truth.

Stupid people!

<quoted text>Funny how you POST just like Ladi. What you posted is a bunch of bull cr*p. Yes it is. I don't have the time like you have to post so much or even to read what's going on. You complain about me just like the pro aboerts do, you think I am the only one who says things that hurts others. You of all people, yes you ladi said my parish priest molested my son. YES YOU DID. The post was taken down, I reported it , so did others. YOU put my parish priest's picture up. And yes, the Chancellor's office complained about it. YOU of all people had an abortion and wasn't sorry for it, right Ladi? You yourself laughed about it, so how the hell did one cry about others posting the name of the poor bay that was butchered? You told me to die, that I should walk in front of a mack truck, you stalked me, yes you did and not just me. You laughed at someone who almost died. Then of all things you go on as a woman named rose who has problems typing, but you type very well when you want to get a nasty message posted about another. I don't trust anyone on Topix because many people are on with multiple names. No one should trust,make friends with anyone on Topix forums. Oh, and yes i was banned for posting bible passages, you pro aborts ganged up on me and another poster. You can deny that you are ladi til the cows come home, but your posts show you are , ladi posted in a style all her own, used certain words just like you do. I don't believe your little naivete act either. I and others always wondered why you became fast friends with the pro aborts. It sure isn't because you were *Christian and pro life*.
Every last word

SLANDER AND LIBELOUS,.

I'M.not Ladi AGAIN FOR THE RECORD

I doubt she did any such thing..And by the way Topix knows what state we are in by our IP...SO THEY know I'm.not her ..for the record

I've told you before ..But you will not listen .
And now this one is MOST Serious..as it's untrue ..LIES,..SLANDER

I HAVe FOR THE 20th time ...so there is a record here again ..

Never had an abortion ...that's a,lie ..

.no.idea,about your priest ..except what YOU SAID about Him...

no idea about your Church except it's,Catholic ..

. I'm sure,at some point in 5 years you have read the TOPix Terms of Service ..

Why you have chosen me 9 months ago ...to harass,..I have no idea except you do not agree with me .

Within the ignorance of theology, how could Catholics, Muslims and Protestants be SO dumb as to believe that a god created by the Jews would shape-shift his emotions over to them, just because they said it was so???

I suggest that there is no hope for humanity!

Dumb is as dumb is, and we might as well face that fact.
