That's why all people know murder is wrong without being taught.


Is that why the death penalty is still legal in Texas?

If it appeals to god it must apply to him as well. Would they put someone in the position of a judge if they could not discern moral from immoral? No, because if they couldn't apply what was good to what they think good is, there would be a lot of guilty people going free. If they do not know good from bad, they wouldn't put in that position to judge who is guilty and who is innocent.

Man is the inventor of morals. If anyone should decide what morals are, it should be us. But we base it on a system of logic that is emotionally based...it's hard to measure emotion, and morals on based on an emotional scale.

Once you're with Jesus, what will you do together?

What is there to do in heaven with Jesus once you get there?


Remember the '2 witnesses' they were with God in heaven but they will be sent back here on Earth to prophesy (because Christians has not been doing their work)

Then they will be overtaken and killed.

Heaven doesn't want cowards. Heaven only wants those who will give it all up even his/her life for God's sake. Heaven needs people of great courage, a zealot for justice and righteousness, and one with great compassion for no reason.

Thanks for the reply...

This heaven sounds like a military training camp...

Wouldn't you think heaven would be a place of rest... considering this is a place of war/chaos

Usually, it's the zealots that make your "God" look like "Satan"...


and one with great compassion for no reason.


I don't see compassion and righteousness keeping company very well...

Stop acting like you know anything about a place you can't even prove exists, let alone been to. It's painful to read!

The real truth is, they are intolerant of "religionists" telling them to join the ranks of whatever cult or they'll burn in hell...

then why are they listening? even more puzzling is why they are believing it...

Probably because they don't want to go to a fictional place where they'll suffer forever. Just a guess though.

Here in Indiana too. Just because people know it's wrong to murder doesn't stop people from doing what they know to be wrong for whatever reason.

Not true. Compare an example of parents with teenage kids. They make a "rule of the house" that there are to be no alcohol in the children's rooms. It's their house, they pay pay the bills correct? Okay, that rule "APPEALS" to the parent's authority, and it "APPLIES" to all their teenage children.

Under that rule can the parents have wine in the wine seller? Are they bound by their rule for their teenage children?
