...You would make a very devious Satan...

But then you would be struck with a dilemma: as a tempter of sin, why on earth are you punishing the sinners?

Then you have to throw yourself into the fiery pits and have a timeout for 5,000 years of illogical reasoning and wasted effort.

Actually it does say that.

Essentially, the ten commandments ask that you not be human. And that's why Christianity is doomed to fail. No matter how hard you try, you cannot succeed in denying your human nature.


Speak for yourself. With the help of the Holy Spirit you can keep all 10 commandments. love God with all your heart, and mind, and treat all your neighbors as you'd want them to treat you. The only two commands Jesus gave.

That may be so but... The spirit of the law is an unachieveable goal to aim for. In our humanity we can never be god.

We aren't asked to be God, we're just instructed to love. To forgive everyone. Love isn't that hard. If you wouldn't like someone to do something to you, don't do it to them. His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.

You are right of course and I'm to tired to carry an arguement that I will ultimately lose.

Sorry... Most people (Christians) arn't well versed in Philosophy and Christian Theology... Clearly you are.

sin is anything that is against life, that is antichrist...


To me "sin" is just another word us humans have put our own individual meanings in. I look at sin as to "miss the mark" or miss the point. Again that is just my opinion.

I see religion as a gift from God so we can learn to eventually come together and quit fighting over what God is the true God and embrace our shared humanity. It is in our nature as humans to label the world around us. The problem becomes when we mistake naming something for understanding what we have named.
