You exist, you feel, you see, you hear, you enjoy, you suffer, you rejoice. But hey man? where were you say maybe 300 years ago? And where do you expect to be in another 300 years? I can tell you that if you believe in Jesus Christ as your saviour. Then in about 300 years from now you will be still a concious living being. While if you do not believe in Jesus and reject his sacrifice then you will know exactly the same and be just as concious as you where 300 years ago.

Everyone else is untouchable except Christ? Because someone says so? So a little mortal man decides he must advise us to embrace santa and his reindeers with red noses and dump Christ who said to forgive thy enemies?

Oh really?

Just as midtown Manhattan comes alive with Christmas cheer, festive window displays and Salvation Army bell ringers trying to channel holiday generosity to the needy, an atheist group has a message for the masses teeming into Times Square: Jesus is a myth.
With a picture of Santa Claus above another image of Jesus Christ, the sign, sponsored by New Jersey-based American Atheists, urges passersby to "Keep the Merry!" and "Dump the Myth!" Attacks on Christianity from the group have become routine, and in the bustling heart of America's busiest city, most folks don't even waste a shrug on the sign.

Is your faith so terribly weak that you feel compelled to consistently do this? I believe that must be the case because it's as though you're trying to convince yourself of something, trying to prove to your god that you are a dutiful believer.

You must evolve and learn that if you really have faith, you will understand that is enough for YOU and you should focus your thoughts and actions on other things, productive and creative things.

And if your faith is genuinely strong, you should be able to step back and allow others to believe or not believe as THEY choose.

There is no proof for those gods. Jesus was here 2000 years ago and the Bible says he is God. The Bible is then confirmed with a long HISTORY & SCIENCE.

There are no older religions. The book of Genesis was written by firsthand witnesses including Adam, the first man. (Wiseman Hypothesis on origins of Genesis)

Just because there are many other religions does not then mean there are none true. On the contrary, add atheism to the list of false pagan beliefs.

Jesus is a historic fact. Your denial will not change this. You only lie to yourself.

Here is a quote from the Encyclopedia Britannica concerning the testimony of the many independent secular accounts of Jesus of Nazareth: "These independent accounts prove that in ancient times even the opponents of Christianity never doubted the historicity of Jesus, which was disputed for the first time and on inadequate grounds by several authors at the end of the 18th, during the 19th, and at the beginning of the 20th centuries."

Actually those are Gods decrees. Christians are just the messenger and as such your enemy as God also stated.
 Quoting: Merci


The greatiest conspiracy ever perpetuated was convincing mankind that the words of men were the words of 'God'.

Why does an all powerful 'God' have to deliver his 'message' through a small group of men 2000 years ago? If 'God' is all powerful, he would have communicated his directives/messages directly to every soul, telepathically. Then there would be no confusion, no corruption,, and no mistaking the decrees of 'God' and we woud live in harmony through everyone of us knowing 'God's' undeniable message. . An all knowing 'God' would have known in advance that a small group of men would never have been trusted to deliver his message and how that message would have been manipulated, censored, and corrupted by the influence of other men, yes? So either 'God' makes mistakes and is not omniscient and omnipotent, or mankind has been lied to by a group of men who sought to control and manipulate others by passing off their self inspired words as the 'word of God'. We know this has been a reoccuring practice throughout history so to any open-minded and critical thinking individual, this should not come as a surprise.
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC

 Quoting: christian


Susie in all honesty you are one of the most hypocritical and fake 'Christians' on this site and your behavior could not be more divergent from the alleged teachings of Christ. You utilize the words of men in the bible to justify your self-declared righteousness & condemnation of others and you seek to create separation and division among the Creation. When others call you out on your hypocritical behavior you utilize the bible as an excuse to absolve yourself of any responsibility of having to face the disgusting nature of many of your posts. Sorry for being blunt but it's obvious you ignore what many people say to you and that no amount of civility will cause you to recognize the error of your ways.

People who teach that God tortures people who do not believe in him are really doing God no favours by spreading lies about him. Jesus died and spent 3 days and nights in hell(the grave) Hell is death and has nothing to do with the Hades from greek tradition. It is an abomination to even think that God who is love, will torture some people for eternity. The bible teaches that people have free will, God brought you nto existence from non existence and gives you the opportunity to extend that existence to eternal existence. And if you do not extend it then you cease to exist and have lost nothing and gained a life experience.How to extend it? well it can be extended by accepting Jesus Christ as your saviour. There is no other way.

whats disgusting is you christians constantly getting in our faces with your antiquated nonsense beliefs. its fine if you wanna believe some stupid made up shit then go for it, but please get of your high horses and stop trying save people you obviously dont give a shit about.

What's disgusting, is atheists spend their entire lives RUNNING from faith, and trying their very best to dissuade OTHERS to believe in man-made NONSENSE like Macro Evolution. You follow Christians around, slashing and hacking at their beliefs, mocking, chiding, provoking, attacking, and then you sit back in amazement when they actually DEFEND themselves from your accusations, slander, and misrepresentations.

You people are absolutely SICK. But as far as I'm concerned, that's OK, because it's YOUR problem, not ours.

Christian logic =

1. Judge not lest ye be judged.
2. Love yourself as you love your neighbor.
3. Turn the other cheek.
4. If you don't believe as I believe, YOU'RE GOING TO HELL!!!

uh ... wut?

Actually those are Gods decrees. Christians are just the messenger and as such your enemy as God also stated.
 Quoting: Merci


The greatiest conspiracy ever perpetuated was convincing mankind that the words of men were the words of 'God'.

Why does an all powerful 'God' have to deliver his 'message' through a small group of men 2000 years ago? If 'God' is all powerful, he would have communicated his directives/messages directly to every soul, telepathically. Then there would be no confusion, no corruption,, and no mistaking the decrees of 'God' and we woud live in harmony through everyone of us knowing 'God's' undeniable message. . An all knowing 'God' would have known in advance that a small group of men would never have been trusted to deliver his message and how that message would have been manipulated, censored, and corrupted by the influence of other men, yes? So either 'God' makes mistakes and is not omniscient and omnipotent, or mankind has been lied to by a group of men who sought to control and manipulate others by passing off their self inspired words as the 'word of God'. We know this has been a reoccuring practice throughout history so to any open-minded and critical thinking individual, this should not come as a surprise.

Ad,

funny how you always seem to inspire me... :)

I have often thought the exact same thing, but you have to consider that God made us in His image with free will... and is choosing soul energy that is compatible with His eternal creation... so many talk about a "bearded man" and other childish notions... not the Creator of all... we must learn humility or be incompatible to Gods will--to not make this choice in a sense would make us a cancer to creation...

Lucifer was created as perfect and chose to rebel, as did the other fallen angels... as do some of God's creations here in the occult who know better...

so God cannot tell everyone... we must make the choice ourselves to believe... this is the directive of free will and the creative process... we are vibratory energy either harmonizing or becoming dissonant with Gods song...

we get to choose, but God cannot make the choice for us... IMO

:)

 Quoting: christian


Susie in all honesty you are one of the most hypocritical and fake 'Christians' on this site and your behavior could not be more divergent from the alleged teachings of Christ. You utilize the words of men in the bible to justify your self-declared righteousness & condemnation of others and you seek to create separation and division among the Creation. When others call you out on your hypocritical behavior you utilize the bible as an excuse to absolve yourself of any responsibility of having to face the disgusting nature of many of your posts. Sorry for being blunt but it's obvious you ignore what many people say to you and that no amount of civility will cause you to recognize the error of your ways.

Thank you...

As a Christian I believe:One sends oneself to Hell by not living according to the Way..taught by Christ

Hell is the absence of Love..Love which is God because God is Love
 Quoting: wildhoney


If 'God' is love why does the bible say that he created evil and why did 'God' create Satan and demons by which to remove souls from love?

hmm
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


An honest question. God is speaking to you.

Is God really the one who created evil? To answer the question we must first look at how the word for evil, "rah," is used in the Bible.

First of all, the Hebrew word for evil, "rah" is used in many different ways in the Bible.
In the KJV Bible it is translated as "evil" over 600 times. The other 200 and some odd times it is translated as wicked, bad, hurt, harm, ill, sorrow, mischief, displeased, adversity, affliction, trouble, calamity, grievous, misery, and trouble.

So we can see that the word does not require that it be translated as evil. This is why different Bibles translate this verse differently. It is translated as "calamity" by the NASB and NKJV; "disaster" by the NIV; and "woe" by the RSV.

Second, the context of the verse is speaking of natural phenomena.

"I am the Lord, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; 6That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other, 7The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these," Isaiah 45:5-7.

Notice that the context of the verse is dealing with who God is, that it is God who speaks of natural phenomena (sun, light, dark), and it is God who is able to cause "well-being" as well as "calamity." Contextually, this verse is dealing with natural disasters and human comfort issues. It is not speaking of moral evil; rather, it is dealing with calamity, distress, etc.

This is consistent with other scriptures.

Re: Disgusting Holiday message: Atheists dub Jesus a 'myth' on Times Square billboard
In 1992 during a blizzard at 2am I was driving from Columbus to my town which is 62 miles, it was on I70, I ran my car off the interstate and down into a snow bank when I hit the snow bank I said Jesus please help me, got out in heels and hose and crawled up to the side of the road it was 15 below and windy and snowing. I didnt see any traffic when I stood up. Then I saw a pair of headlights coming toward me on my side of the road, it was a van it stopped in front of me and the sliding door opened and I got in, it was dark but I could make out 4 men. On the radio was hymn music, I told the driver where I was going and he asked where my home was , they took me 10 miles out in the country and pulled in my driveway and then left. So nothing can ever tell me Jesus wasnt with me that night.
