With your waterfall of words, most meanings are lost

Summarise it TC
Summarise what your meaning is

I can do it for you

"All religions are evil, all religious people are retarded, we should push them into the oceans like the Muslims want to do to the Jews"


Dude...you just said humility would be a welcome wave to this forum. Hey, WWJD?
Try not to be so condescending. We all have reasons for where we are at. I have real big issue with much that you think is true in the bible. But guess what? 8 years ago, I sounded just like you. Hell, you should have seen how obnoxious I was when pushing the friggin Torah on all my Christian friends who LOOOOVED them some Paul. Now, I can't stand YHWH either. Oh, well.
It's all so dang ridiculous!
I said this very early on when I first started posting on here....the Bible is a book of dualities and polarities that produces those very things in people! Everyone's been arguing and killing people over this stupid book for millennial. Doesn't that tell you something about it's AUTHOR????? Well, there are a bunch of them, but I mean the spirit(s) behind the authors. There are good one's and there are evil ones. Can't you stand back and see that????

Thanks Matrixsurvivor, I will take it under advisement

First I will let TC answer for himself though

As for your opinion, its just your opinion, no need to go all fundy on me, preaching at me, I have heard your gnosticism before.
Thanks but no thanks


Jehovah is God a God of justice, sends Christ to earth to save people from justice that demands death.
Jehovah orchestrated many deaths as punishment for sin back in the OT, He will again when this earth wraps up, after Christ returns, after judgement day. There is only duality if you dont understand basic biblical theology.
Sadly You dont, if you think God was all brutal and bad in the first book, just wait and see whats coming in the final episode.
Those outside of Christ will suffer under the old laws

Now I dont have an issue with what you believe, its your choice

Sigh.....whatever man. You know what I spent 2004 to 2013 being for "Jehovah"?...actually, it's YHWH. There is no "J" in Hebrew. Anyway, I was called to be a "watchman" Well, "watchwoman", I guess, lol. YHWH literally spoke to me and gave me Isaiah 24. He also told me a whooooole bunch of other stuff. He's been speaking to me for a long ass time. So, you see.... I'm not some "gnosis fundy" (god, I hate freaking labels...why do Christians always label others outside of what they believe?).
But, I don't know WHAT I am. I do know this....something radical has happened to me and I feel like I've been listening to TWO different entities that both are wooing me. One is really, really, good...the other, not so much, but good at sounding good.
So, you can hang onto your Jehovah all you want. I get it. I did too, for a long time. But, when I started reading all the other things YHWH demanded, it really, really, felt wrong. It felt evil. So, if that means I'm destined for hell, right on. I will continue to do what feels right in my gut. One of those is not hurting animals, the other is treating other people with love.
And hey, according to Christianity, I can't lose my salvation anyway. (grin). So, I'm good, right?
LOL.
Rock on Raggedyman. And I mean that with no sarcasm.

Actually, that's exactly what happens.

You get a personal relationship. And you can actually measure it.


So you're saying it's all in your head, but you're still calling it a "Personal Relationship" and that you can also measure it now too.

At the same time there are now Christians within this thread now who don't agree on what kind of "Relationship" is or is even possible with the Divine but you all claim to know the Truth of God and Jesus and so forth.

Then you wonder why anyone would question these things you speak about. Well, just look at this thread for a good clue as to why.

Jesus' message wasn't the cross, bro. It was to love God and love others as yourself. The priests had him set up and killed for showing people what the real God was like. Jesus said, "if you've seen Me, you've seen the Father".
So, what was Jesus like? If you'd stop listening to Saul of Tarsus (aka, Paul) and clean your brain out from his false gospel, you might actually hear the Savior you say you follow. Jesus talked nothing like Paul. NOTHING.
Why you all still listen to Paul is baffling.

The only thing Jesus ever said about going to the cross was that He knew they were going to kill him. He didn't say, "Believe in my death on the cross and you will be saved". NO...He said, "believe in the things I've said and taught you and DO THEM".

Wow, that's amazing. What a fantastic quote from the BIBLE. As if it would say something opposite to that.

If it had it reversed it wouldn't exactly go toward convincing anyone in to anything now would it????

Maybe this will come as a shock to you but in order to get people to believe a lie, you have to either promise them something in return or make them fear not believing it. That quote is doing both. What else would you expect It to say???

What you should really be asking is what proof is there that they are in fact correct in that statement. Because if nobody can back it up it's BS.

Point well taken. Don't blame you, bro. The Bible is a mess of contradictions.

I always had the same problems with Christianity. I read this book and it blew my mind. Very interesting and new views on Christian concepts. It's called "Shedding Symbols" by John Dublin. I think it's like, 2 bucks.

Wrong he also said believe 'in' him. The fruits of the spirit are good acts and we can certainly trust his teachings but those themselves don't save. Lest someone would boast that they themselves were good enough to be holy and enter into his holy presence without him. Which is not true.

John 11:25
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Still don't agree. Here they asked him specifically what works they should do in order to have ETERNAL LIFE. Look at his answer.

John 6:27

Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Which Labour will produce meat, that will be everlasting for you? For Jesus will give it to them. So they asked Jesus.

John 6:28-29
Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


Simply 'believe' in him..............NONE OTHER
Anyone can do a good work but only one can save you. That is the difference.

"...if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell."

Wakey wakey brothers and sisters... the ignorance of others is the fruit you are bearing. You might as well tell the mirror how stupid its image is.

You know Matti
I am not here to justify God
If you dont believe thats your decision, you are welcome to that choice

Me I chose God, through Jesus
I know what I am and who I serve, I am no watchman, no problems with my theology, no worries about serving good spirits and bad spirits like you, no confusion
I dont have any misunderstanding of my salvation, it doesnt hinge on good feelings or bad, I experience them both

It would be great to not hurt animals and love each other but the reality is this world is broken, it doesnt work

God wants everyone to be Gnostic. Gnostic means Knows (Good God exists) or at least has knowledge of the Spiritual world.

Instead of telling everyone you do know God you tell everyone God is unknowable but it is possible to at least try.

It is better than bickering about something nobody really knows about and believing in the literalist view of the Bible which is mind boggling to me because it is not literal, not to say untrue though because it wasn't written that way except for the uneducated masses.

People who are not scared to say "Yahweh sucks ass" are called hellbound heretics and laugh because they know that person has been mind ucfkde and we are free to live in the Kingdom of God right here, right now.

A word of advice to all Christians in this thread. Its futile to evangelize on ats. Ive tried it in the past. all manner of jokers chime in to argue with you. The Bible tells us to resist the devil, not debate him.

Their flesh will be consumed from their bones as they stand upon their feet. (all paraphrased)


That's not a rapture verse, that's a verse about war. It sounds like a neutron bomb, Israel does have them.

Another states they will be caught up in the clouds wth great power and glory...

Israel did that, too, during Operation "Pillar of cloud" in Gaza.. Hard for them to hog all the 'glory' though, hi explosive have been in common use since the first world war.

Modern weapons are significantly more destructive in all those regards. Theres a lot of that going on already.

I am not a Mormon and don't believe Mormonism is a true Christian denomination, sorry
I believe the burning breast is of the devil, can't trust feelings

I am not a Catholic either


Then why do you use their Holy Books? Because without Catholicism you would not have Christianity or the Bible. So you just take traditions you like and don't believe in the Catholic Church as Christians.

They are as Christian as anyone and responsible for Catholicism and Christianity.



The failure is thinking that we know our relationship with God is based on feelings, it's not

I don't think that's tricky

If you disagree I am sorry


It is based on feelings, God GIVEN feelings like instinct.

All relationships are based on feelings and if you don't feel God you don't have a relationship.
