I don't know either way ... but I don't like being bullied by those who are certain that they do know ... just because they are in a religion.
i understand i had to listen to it an bite my tongue when around my ex g/f's parents, you couldn't get through a conversation without him bringing god into it somehow, he was a very negative man, anything we told him/them what we were going to do like go somewhere ETC. he always always said would say oh you shouldn't do that, that's to dangerous, one time it was going to the zoo, where they have a large fenced in area with all types of deer that you could hand feed an so on, he would have a fit, saying we were nuts for doing that, then as we leave we'd get i'll be praying all day for you two so you don't get killed. you are happy being in the religion you are with that's fine, but don't push it on me, don't tell me a ghost created us an the world because you nor I can prove EXACTLY how we got here and how everything was created, to my way of thinking, i believe in " the big bang". evolution makes more sense than a ghost who just appears out of nothing and starts creating things. i'm going to gather some dust put it in a jar an see if it turns into a boy or a girl.

Jesus would have to appear before me and tell me that the catholic religion is my true religion and then he would have to change into his father since both are one, but how much do they look alike?

from what i just read no one believes the prophecy is genuine, which is no surprise since it's about the destruction of rome. that day will come, not in our life time but it will happen, i would love to get into the vaults and find out what they are hiding in there. gods church belongs to everyone not just one select group. that is why organized religion is a joke.

.....Young women getting married pray for sunshine for their wedding day, yet right beside the church, farmers are praying for rain.
..... People pray for all sorts things to happen or change. What's the point in God having a plan for each of us, if all you have to do is pray to screw up gods plan?
....I am grateful for what I have. I have been very fortunate. Hard work, taking the right fork in the road, and a little luck has got me where I am today. If there is a God working behind the scenes, I will take all his help I can get.
...but praying..not for me, however when I was growing up catholic I did pray a lot, so somewhere I must have an account of grace built up somewhere, that could become handy in the future.
"an account of grace built up" :) like a treasure chest

As for God's plan for me...well, He's had to revise it so many times it must be "plan W" by now.
That's what is amazing to me, because He can take my horrible mistakes and still make something good come of it. I've had to work harder to be where I am than I would have had to if I hadn't made so many mistakes. A lot harder. Everyone around me told me to give up and just take the welfare check. The only reason I made it was by some kind of miracle. I had four strikes against me. But I made it.

I'm telling you that faith based reasoning and faith as in "faith in god" is not a human universal. It's a cultural construct, a "way of accepting" religious knowledge.
2. I never made the claims you are making above and so am not sure why you are making them for me, then extrapolating on my person. That's a very strange way of debating.
3. Yeah, we all do. It's all good.

1. I am saying that a person or culture that is not based in reason and faith will be shortlived, for one without the other will at best make infertile the humanity within it.

2. As a general rule, I have found that atheists deny faith exists. Sorry if that has infringed upon your understanding, or acceptable way of "debating".

I used to pray that I was thankful for what I had, until I thought of the countless people who were starving to death daily and didn't have anything for which to BE thankful ... and also never had "their" prayers answered. it bothered my conscience to BE thankful to such a supposed god.
Bit by bit I quit believe that theologians had EVER received messages from gods.
It sounds like you are very concerned about justice. Where does that come from?

Thanks for posting.
The fact that you believe you have your own god apart from the Jewish god means that the Gnostics simply created another god to suit THEIR own self-perceived HOLY images ... as did the Jews.

There can't BE two monotheistic gods in the sky ... as mono means ONE. And the Jews created their god FIRST. So yours (according to the Jews) is a false god ... not worth even a mention.

The Christians have been yapping about the end of time "prophesy" since the first century. And none are tired of promoting the fear yet.

Every so often the nonsense gets hyped up and dies down again for a little while.

An earthquake could bring on more Christian convulsions in the proclamation that Jesus is coming AT LAST. Yet earthquakes are natural occurrences.

Silly, silly humans.

FOR THE UNREGENERATED THE UNSAVED

to be forgiven .to be born again

.this is what the Bible says DO..

Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

TO THE BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN THAT SINS...

1Jn_1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

TO KNOW WHAT IS SIN WE NEED TO BRING OUR DEEDS TO THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL..-->. TO SEE IF THEY ARE WROUGHT OF GOD.<--

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

(NOTE)
Joh 3:21 --> But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. <--

THIS ABOVE ....IS THE LITMUS TEST...

Hidingfromyou

If this were true, then one would not be able to go from one set of beliefs to another, and "believe" them.

In the case on this thread, most have moved from let us say, Catholic to Protestant. But also larger moves from Christian to Islam, or Buddhism.

With your construct these are like linear points, but rather it may be the awakening to knowledge, again a priori and a posteriori, which brings religious knowledge to fruition in wisdom.(It is not necessarily so.)

Is it a rather reductionist point you take with a human being, being merely the sum of its parts?

Justice to Christians means that Muslims will get their punishment in Christian hell.

Justice to Muslims mean that Christians will get their punishment in Islam's hell.

You tell ME ... what IS justice???

I simply don't even know if justice is a credible word. I think it also stemmed from the pens of men in religions.

The monotheistic Jews did not believe in sons of gods. The sons of gods were from the polytheist religions.
The Jews that created the one monotheistic god wrote in their literature that they were the gods chosen few. They didn't need or want any more sons of gods in their religion.
It was the Catholics that created another savior-son of a god myth to start their new religion.
Without a savior-myth, they would have no religion.
