The worship of images (this includes churches and crosses) is idolatry. The "church" should be the temple that is the body, not a building. When Jesus was crucified, he was tortured beyond belief. At the moment of his death, as his spirit came out of his body and away from the cross, what do you suppose he felt toward the thing that caused him so much misery? What do you think he thought of as he looked at that cross? He more than likely felt disgust and/or the need to avenge his pain and misery. His ENEMY was the cross. So why would someone put a cross on a building that they claim that God is in? What God? Certainly not the God of Jesus, because he would not approve of people kneeling down praying to a cross... Which I might add, is idolatry.
Jesus came to teach us many things, but it was not to start cults (what religions all are) and it was not to imprison souls or damn souls with mind control that the cult leaders, preachers, and priests like to inflict. The message of Jesus was perverted the moment that the first building was erected and people were told that God was in that building. God is inside your head. He has to be found within your soul. Not in a building or through any leaders, false gods, or arrogant preachers that think they have the authority of God to tell you that you will go to Hell if... God is the only authority. Preachers are not God, so they have no right to make judgement in God's place. God is the judge. Not preachers. So Christianity and all religions are Anti-Christ, since they take you away from a personal path to the Light. You can walk the narrow road that you must be independent on finding God, or you can walk with the masses that take the wide road of illusions and mind-control.
Arius and his followers advocated the belief that is known as Arianism. To put the controversy simply, Arius and his followers maintain that Christ was not homoosios with God. This means Arians did not believe in the Trinity.
Arius and his followers believed in a different kind of trinity where the Son is Subordinate to the Father, which is actually more biblically true...
And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. - Mark 14:36
1. That God is a flame and fire
2. That God encouraged incest
3. That God encourages cannabalism
4. That God had peoples hand, feet and heads cut off
5. That God had tens of thousands killed cause they could not spead a word properly when talking.
6. That Sampson went around killing people and tearing them apart and it was all good with God (and this is after the ' thou shall not's ')
7. That God is a war monger
8. That he himself has said he is vengeful, fearful, cruel, and more...
9. That this list could go on and on.....
10. In the old testament God killed over 10 million people
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. - Luke 6:37-38
Okay now wait what book says God encourages incest? That is a sin, but then again I guess you mean by the fact that the bible says we are all related. Cause then encouraging incest was the only way to survive since we would die out and if that was what you meant then if you believe the bible then if you are married you commited incest. Please clear this up for me as now I am confused.
