I dont know if this is part of the topic but I really get sick of people copying and pasting entire verses of the bible in threads. If people wanted
to read the verses they would, and you are most likely to see the same verses most times because people actually believe they are the most important
ones concerning the future. I think those people are delirious.
I agree. I mean, God obvious didn't write
the book, in the first place, nor did God update the book at any time. To say the opposite would
certainly be delusional. Oh, they say, well, God Inspired
the book to be written. OK, I can somewhat accept that. What about other books, did
God inspire those too? No, those are inspired by the Devil/Satan. Si I don't understand what we are basically forced, every time, to read over the
self same quotes, again and again, as if we are too stupid to see them the first time.
I tend to think that the religious folks are at least sub-consciously, attempting to bring about Armageddon. Drenched in the blood of those different
from them, they try to en-flame the hearts of mankind and bring the Muslim World down on Israel, as I understand it, so Jesus can come down from the
sky, riding on some sort of craft that is called "The Kingdom of Heaven," whip up on "Satan's followers," and establish his new religion, which
will last for 1000 years. And why is this? My first thought would be so that they, the Good Christians, could rule the world according to whatever
their version may be. It is often stated in here that America is, and was founded as a Christian Nation, even though there is much evidence to the
contrary. A little research into American history will show that this statement is a lie. The men responsible for building the foundation of the
United States had little use for Christianity, and many were strongly opposed to it. They were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They
were Deists who did not believe the Bible was true.
When the Founders wrote the nation's Constitution, they specified that
"no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."
(Article 6, section 3)
This provision gave equal citizenship to believers and non-believers alike. They wanted to ensure that no single religion could make the claim of
being the Official, National religion, such as England had. After all, they had left England for just that reason. Nowhere in the Constitution does
it mention religion, except in exclusionary terms. The words "Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, and God" are never mentioned in the Constitution--
