We are simply to do the will of God.

No one has to do the will of God.
What actually is; is always only ever the will of God.

It is neither good nor bad.....it just is.

I disagree with the will of man always being the will of God.

So is it then ok to judge man?
Is it ok to say man is good or evil?

We are to forgive those who repent.

Do you think your forgiveness helps them or you?

If you are angry at someone or something.....that anger is in you.

Then don't.

Are you saying that you cannot forgive anyone that does not repent?

You seem confused and I don't think you need to be told either. I have no idea what wasn't clear in the first place. We are to forgive those that repent. See how amazingly simple that statement is? Don 't make anything harder than it already is.

You write; 'we' are to forgive those that repent.

What do you mean by 'we'?

Not everyone believes that repentance is required for forgiveness.

But you do!?

What would be the point repenting when you won't be forgiven? That's why we should forgive when someone repents.

Evil is a judgement.....
Good is a judgement....
The Bible says that if one judges then they shall be judged.

Accept What Is — Don’t Judge as Good or Bad : zen habits
zenhabits.net...


I think this is more concerning a person “judging” another person’s soul will be damned to hell. You still have the free will to determine what is evil. To know if your actions are evil. To understand when evil is done against you. And understand when something is not holy.



37Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”

38Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!

biblehub.com...


People have free will to deny God, to know God, and to ask for forgiveness when they “judge” they have sinned, and to forgive those persons who sin against them.




Matthew 6:14

Parallel Verses
New Living Translation
"If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.

biblehub.com...


So yes. You are given the intellect and freewill to understand when someone has sinned against you, or cheated you.

You insist on talking out of context.

The issue is God exists or not.

God in concept is the creator cause of man and the universe and everything with a beginning.

That concept entails that God is an entity from itself, not from another entity, for example, man is an entity from another because he has a beginning.

So the distinction stands: there is a distinction between existence from oneself and existence from another self.


Tell you what, do you have a concept of God at all - otherwise you are out of context here in my thread.

[quote ends]



Are you speaking to someone in particular?
You use the pronoun "you", as if you were, yet the post is not addressed to anyone, and it has been twice now that have answered your questions, and then you just stop responding to me.

Do you just make the replies wrong, or you don't like my answers, or who are you talking to ?






I am talking to everyone who read my posts, but I don't read some posters' posts here because they are into nothing but nonsense stubbornness.

So, tell you what, everyone, you just cite my text and then reply to it, okay?

To make sure that I see your post addressed to me, just put at the top this inscription: Addressing Pachomius.

From Pachomius: Okay, answer yes or no: Do you exist, yes or no?

From Nothin: No.





Okay then, bang your nose very hard against a concrete wall until you are bloody and near to death, then report to me whether you are still not existing.

Is every comment that doesn't please you : "...nonsense stubbornness..." ?

Would you also like us to use a particular color, and/or style of font ?
Any particular formatting you require ?
Some pleasant background music ?
Should we anoint your feet ?
Would you like us to bring you food offerings with that ?

( Hope you're smiling, because am just teasing. )

Got a similar reaction a couple of years ago, from a supposedly very religious member, who wanted me to stab my hand with a knife.
What's up with the incitement to do harm ?
Know of any God's that would approuve of that ?

If a person has an accident, and has a finger amputated: Who's left ?
Is the finger that they send to bio-hazard waste: still the person ?

We hear from biology that all of our body's cells are expired, and exchanged anew over a period of about 7 years.
So the question is: if you are your body: then have you died after 7 years, and are you are a new and different you ?

Are you your body ?

Addressing Pachomius.

I just started a new religion.
It's actually not new. And it isn't a religion.
It's just a Gospel really.
Mostly copy and paste, with comments by me tying things together.
And it's actually mostly on someone else's thread.
