CONSUMERISM vs CHRISTIANITY
In the USA, which is REALITY and which is DELUSION?
Funny how we can all spin things in our minds. Somehow, Jesus wants us to have two cars, giant screen TVs, and be fat.
That can all be justified, because deep inside, most know it's only a delusion.
My God wants me to have cool stuff, if my potential allows.
My God does not force me to be a hypocrite.
Mine is the one true God.

Why the bad judgie? I think that is a good post.

The fact is if Jesus came down tomorrow and appeared before every Christian in the USA - like he supposedly did 2000 years ago for doubting Thomas, et al - then does anyone think the USA would continue as the world's most wasteful, consumer-based society?

Of course our behavior would change! But guess what?

Nothing will change, because it's a delusion and deep inside, most Xians know it.

YES YES Christians ... nobody deserved saviors except YOU.
That you are so eager to believe that nonsense makes it plain that you DO believe others deserve punishment in hell and you deserve rewards in heaven.
Shame on YOU .. you greedy fools!
Even as a child, I didn't believe that garbage.
Everyone needs a Savior.....

a Savior.....one......one....not two....but one....

Why, June, does everyone need a Savior?

Hi Chuck,
Why was John sent?
The insane dogma teaches that Adonai sent John as a practicum Jew in the old testament to look ahead to the day hundreds of years later when he would spring up in the new testament as a Catholic saint to baptize Jesus the Jewish Rabbi into Catholicism.

I suggest that you shake all that debris out of your psyche ... or not ... it's your choice.

Ann Coulter, the hair-flipping conservative Christian believes that because she has faith in Jesus she has the fast-track to heaven and that "conservative" Christians are perfected Jews.
She preaches in mega churches telling the dumbed-down Christians what they DESIRE to hear.

Like Jesus said, "pray publicly and loudly."

Oops, I forgot. Even they know that god is a delusion.

June,
What do you believe the word HOPE means???
Hope to me does not mean I live in the future.

It means that I try my best with each moment to be as fair to others as my circumstances allow.

I don't believe in the word perfection, and therefore I don't strive for such an illusion. I simply try to be less self-centered than my human nature often demands of me.

That is my hope.

No they don't, and that is the problem. They believe their own GOD is real and all other gods in other religions ARE delusions.

Different viewpoints from different people, to different people. Matthew to the Jews, Luke to the Gentile, John to the Theologically minded....
The closer one look at a cut diamond, one enters the view of a single facet, otherwise at a distance it sparkles....
I think it is the "job" of most people who believe in the one true God, thru life to see God in different facets, as experienced. It is the same God....
A cut diamond. I like that.

I think the human species as a whole was "theologically minded" through the late Bronze Age at least.

By the end, I doubt if he could be heard from the cross anyhow. Whatever, I think a true God should be more clear. But that's just me.

So according to Christian theologians, the creator attached his spirit to the spirit of Adam and Eve ... knowing ahead of time that his spirit was going to be tarnished by their sin, and that they were going to keep multiplying the sin?

Why would any god in his right mind WANT his own spirit tarnished, when he could have avoided such a catastrophe???

And why would the supposed creator create non-human animals to suffer when they had never "sinned?"

If you don't wake up, others can't do it for you.

Seems to me that you have a lot of things all screwed up and perhaps backwards in your thinking.
If one has "came to believe" a thing, anything, then the coping was happening during the period of coming to the conclusion ... NOT after arriving at that conclusion.

I suggest that people rely on theologians to take "care" of their "spiritual" NEEDS because they are too frightened, too lazy and/or too greedy for salvation to want to ask questions of the theologies.

I am as greedy as other humans in wanting my comforts, but not so greedy as to take the theologians at their WORD that they are teaching truth ... or any semblance OF truth ... if it even exists.

Is saying that you are a deceitful idiot the same as saying that you are being a deceitful idiot?
Try putting things in proper context if you are really seeking truth.

I DID say the words "you are a deceitful idiot". Does that mean I called you an idiot?

Pope Leo Xth and Martin Luther hated each other with a passion. They labeled each other as the antichrist ... and yet they used the same bible to preach that Jesus came with a message of love for all humanity.

If you don't want to see the lies, it is plain that you want to stay blind.

I can tell by your posts, June, you DO NOT have that complete rest.....

God gives complete rest.....you have to be willing to seek it out....

in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, and which now at his appointed season he has brought to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior,
