Why is faith a virtue?

We laugh at those who tell us the holocaust never occurred, and mock those who whisper 9/11 conspiracies. We cross to the other side of the street when approached by a fellow mammal babbling to an imaginary friend. Would we not call someone who believes the world is flat a delusional crackpot? Why do we not judge all people by the same standards? Why do "people of faith" get a special pass?

In religious terms, the word faith is defined as a belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence. A person of faith not only holds such beliefs to be true, but considers it a virtue to make critical life decisions based on those beliefs.

America's Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee citizens many glorious freedoms. This includes the Freedom of Religion which endows individuals the right to believe whatever they choose concerning gods and religion. However, this freedom does not include the right of respect.

For far to long, people of reason, have tried to peacefully coexist with people of faith. However, the "faithful" are not content with their own freedoms. They feel compelled to control the freedom of ALL people. They insist on forcing their "faith" into legislation concerning education, medical advancement, and the redefinition of science.

This site is dedicated to providing a different kind of ministry. We are dedicated to helping free people from their irrationality and provide aid and community for those who have been enlightened.

Re: Why is faith a virtue?
Because you don't have to wast time understanding and solving real problems.

You just pretend that everything is ok.

The path of least resistance.

Why worry about making the world a better place? Nobody else gives a rat's ass. They'll just persecute you for ruining their blissful illusion.

Blissful ignorance is better for your health and your family's welfare.

What is called "faith" nowadays is nothing more than an excuse to hate one another. True FAITH is far beyond that.
Simplicity is the key to Heaven...more than ever.

Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Mat 18:3)

All to often, the term "faith" is used as an excuse to let God do it for you.......

But when true faith matures, it becomes "knowing"......and at that point you no longer need faith, because you now Know!

Do the work, and don't expect God to do it for you, and soon enough you will grow into your knowing!

With true knowledge, faith is not necessary.

That's why Christians called themselves the 'body of believers' and not the 'body of knowers'.

The only way anyone could KNOW if there was a God would be for that god to actually appear in person.... with proper credentials, for all to see.

Delusions don't count for shit.

Of course all rational people know that imaginary gods cannot appear. The bible god is entirely imaginary so it cannot appear.

True knowledge is fine , but most of the time the argument is presented by godless fucks who have been communized and in their pursuit of social justice would have us all enslaved to the lowest common denominator

Nonsense! Maybe you are simply failing to interpret what you are seeing correctly......

Let me express it to you this way: The Universal Language is Light...not sound. Sound is simply Light slowed down. Now if God is Light (and science calls them photons), then God is all around us....everywhere....in all things....through all things. Thus, God is as near to you as your nearest breath!

You simply don't interpret what you are seeing as God, because you want God to appear to be what you want Him to be. See my point? or am I just being too delusional for you?
