First let it be known.. I have no problem with moderate church going folks of all religions! I belive everyone has a right to find God in their own
Those who don't belive in a God, are welcome to belive what they wish!
We live in a time where groups of people still feel that the Bible is the absolute WORD of God.. And do not feel this book was written by men..
Granted you have every right to belive what you wish.. Yet why are these same people SOO hurtful and angry to anyone that doesnt belive in their
I have tried to meet these people half way. But with no luck.. When will the time come that we can move on as a people together?
Why must they hold so many people back with such small ideas. That become such BIG deals..
Why can not people that belive in this stuff have love in their hearts for others. presay nothing BUT hate and fear!
They claim we all are born with sin.. And we are all sinners! All that fire and brimstone stuff.. Going to hell if you don't see it their way!!!
Some belive a person can not just be a "good" person.. And that its selfish to serve yourself and not serve GOD. Why is it that people can not just
be good people, unless they belive in the absolute word of the bible, or God?
There are so many different names for God.. Yet each one lays claim to being correct. While the other group will burn in hell.. As its okay to have
faith and belive.. Yet extreamists push it and people get hurt, and even DIE!
Why must I burn in hell forever just because I won't hate someone else for feeling another way than me?
I don't hate people who feel the bible is the absolute word of God.. Lord knows I have tried everything in my power to befriend them.. To help
And to show them how much hate they spread in this world..
They do not care! They only see what they have been taught since a young age.. And nothing will stand in their way..
They proclaim a WAR on those who do not belive..
They feel they are Warriors for GOD.. They want a WAR with those who do not belive as they belive..
Someday a time will come when we can shed such old ways..
A day will come when all those filled with such HATE will come to an end..
While I do not see this happening in my lifetime.. I hope that someday my grandchildren can just be who they are without being hurt and picked on by
Look at the past.. And how much has changed.. A black man now stands in office.. Working for the white devil! While things change.. Nothing changes
all that much..
And evil still rules this world.. The good guys are the ones who wear black.
While the evils of this world run amuck!
And how many extream groups of absolute words of God types do we have?
Well theres more than just 1 group of these folks.
So since we have more than 1 group of people who belive their book was written by God itself.. Why would God write up so many different books?
Is God like some trickster God? An Evil spiteful God? Who loves to see its childrens fight and kill eachother?
No, I don't think thats what God wanted.. Yet its not Gods job to come here and figure this out.. This is a huge universe.. And we are not Gods only
children.. God wanted us to figure this out for ourselfs..
And the time is comming soon.. When we must stand up to these bullies..
And say enough is enough..
While I would not empose my faith upon them.. I would not strike them down and tell them they must belive in my GOD..
However I would make a stand.. And tell them.. The time has come.. And you have hurt and killed so many people that the world has lost count..
Its time we stick up for ourselfs.. And stop these bullies from killing and hurting us all! So that we can move on as a human race!!
yet my problem is this.. I do not want to kill anyone.. Nor hurt anyone to get my point across..
How do you fight evil?
How do you fight something without attacking it.. Or hurting the people being blinded by such maddness?
I am open to suggestions.. As if you go to attack groups of people.. You inturn become as bad as them..
If you tell them what they should belive.. You become the very thing you set out to defeat..
And its how we have been trapped in this loop for so freakin long!
How do we end their rain of maddness.. How do we stand up to a bully.. Without punching him in the face..Without doing the very things the bullies did
How do you beat the bully without becomming the bully?
I told myself I would stay out of these threads.. And all religion based stuff.. But Its been on my mind the last few months.. If you got this far
into the thread thanks for listening.. I just wanted to get this stuff off my chest and into writting..
Peace and Love to all!
IMPORTANT THREAD ANNOUCMENT
Edit-- Before my edit button wears out I want to post one rule in this thread.. Please all moderate members please follow this golden rule..
If a person comes in and posts in an angry or spiteful way.. DO not reply to that person! Allow them to expose their true nature! And only reply to
those who want to talk about this in a civil manner!
I repeat! DO not feed trolls in this thread.. Or you will become one yourself!
Its called Gandi Tech.. And its the only way to deal with Fanaticism!
Gandhi, on the other hand, taught to peacefully confront the problematic people and let them show their true colors or character, and then
publicize their actions. I call this Gandhi Tech. Gandhi's methods were to help all humans equally
