You have just lost me on your train of thought


As far as having knowledge when being with god. Isn't this the same god that kicks people out of paradise precisely for possessing knowledge?


FYI, It was the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Hate for people is STILL hate!
If they are consumed by an evil spirit, you THINK it's the person you hate but it is hate for the SPIRIT!
Jeshua said love your enemy, pray for them, do good to them! In so doing, you may see them saved from torment and become good for mankind!!!

Alright let's agree on this, I HATE REPUBLICANS!
Lol but seriously, I to myself am somewhat of a moderate Christian, I don't bring of much of Church into my heart as to base my daily life and actions on it, but I do believe in morals, but will never say "oh you can't do that, that is not Christian behavior" cause that in it's own way is somewhat opressive, and being a teenager, I extremely disliked being taken to Church on a Sunday morning, because Religion should not be forced on someone for the sake of it, if the person doing it know the person receiving the religion will dislike it. Now if i had my own choice to choose whether to go to church or not, I just might be willing to go if it were in my own will and not forced upon me to shovel and spoon down my throat.

You do realize Christians as well as Muslims or Hindus, for that matter, come from all walks of life,
Doctors, teachers, physicists, scientists, they are not retarded or stupid,

You need a history lesson.

I guess alot of the anti christian sentiment is brought on by the small minded view's of your fellow followers.




So you lump everyone into the same category?

Lets take a survey to see who is the more small minded.





I don't really make anti christian posts, ... but I often try to wake them up.


Wake them up?

Who appointed you?

This is just another form of control, and intolerance.

Some people believe that when a man is starving it is Gods way of testing that man.


For that matter so would Buddhist, claiming karma,

But for the most part I agree with your post,

The message was simple,




Mt. 25:31-46. "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on His left.
Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.'
Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite you in, or naked, and clothe You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?'
And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'


and Love one another,

but then if we understood love we wouldn't need commandments or call each other retards.

[edit on 7-12-2009 by oliveoil]


Think about it. He removes people from the garden for having tasted the knowledge of good and evil, which is just the beginning of the first stage of knowing. There are many kinds of knowledge and many stages. We are not even at the stage of fore-knowledge, or clairvoyance, of future events.
If the statement "when with god we see things as they are" has any validity -this would include the knowledge of good and evil, the very same thing that got us expelled. Clearly, someone deliberately does not want us to know. Not now, and especially not when with him.

This is why the statement "when with god you see.." is pure Yahweh propaganda.

It is not your fault, you are caught in his web like so many people.

You could say that about science today too.

It is a process, theory, at least they did eventually create schools of higher learning,

There are brilliant men and women that call themselves Christian.

I am not denying the sordid past of Christianity, but you could show that all of humanity, nations and religions, have caused incredible pain through out history of mankind.

Christianity has come a long way, there comes a time when we should acknowledge that fact,

Why continue to fan the flames?

Live and let live, if they are not harming you.

zerbot I also want to point out that during ancient times there was no distinction between a priest and a scientist,

From ancient Sumeria and Egypt, to the prophets of Israel, the priest were the scholars and scribes, the astronomers were astrologers as well,
en.wikipedia.org...

Take the book of Daniel,
or Moses who was said to have been trained in the ways of the Egyptian priesthood,

They were all great minds, I think they were the greatest of minds, we are just a shadow of what once was.

In my mind there are many ways to interpret the Bible, because it can be read on so many levels.

Takes religion out of it and it is a totally new experience.

I'd say many atheists have problems with all religions. I'm not an atheist but I don't like Christianity (I liked what Jesus did, but IMO it got so twiested it's not the same thing anymore). Many don't talk about Islam because... it's obvious. And if an atheist has got a faithful friend - he/she usually is a christian, bacause of the place we live in.

I understand what you are saying 100 %. However, you are very cloudy on your perception of man and why we are here according to the God of the Bible.
This "knowing" is in a spiritual sense, not a physical one.How can one have fore-knowledge, or clairvoyance of future events in a physical state unless you are a prophet.
It cant happen.

Where did you get that statement from?

when with god you see

This one too. are you making these up?

Well - I had a few mins and did a quick search. The study is a little old (05) - but its the only one I could find on short ntotice.

Scientists' Belief in God Varies Starkly by Discipline


About two-thirds of scientists believe in God, according to a new survey that uncovered stark differences based on the type of research they do.

The study, along with another one released in June, would appear to debunk the oft-held notion that science is incompatible with religion.

Those in the social sciences are more likely to believe in God and attend religious services than researchers in the natural sciences, the study found.

The opposite had been expected.

Nearly 38 percent of natural scientists -- people in disciplines like physics, chemistry and biology -- said they do not believe in God. Only 31 percent of the social scientists do not believe.

In the new study, Rice University sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund surveyed 1,646 faculty members at elite research universities, asking 36 questions about belief and spiritual practices.

"Based on previous research, we thought that social scientists would be less likely to practice religion than natural scientists are, but our data showed just the opposite," Ecklund said.

Some stand-out stats: 41 percent of the biologists don't believe, while that figure is just 27 percent among political scientists.

In separate work at the University of Chicago, released in June, 76 percent of doctors said they believed in God and 59 percent believe in some sort of afterlife.


It does make sense I think that it would vary by what field of science they are in. However, its still a bigger % than I had thought it would be.
