"So you use "God" as an excuse to be nice? That's a little frightening."
Not as an excuse, but as a means. God enlivens all things you know?
"It implies that you see no reason inherent in your fellow man to exercise kindness, compassion and understanding."
Nope, all desire for holy passion is given by God. God enlivens all things and without God there is nothing.
By myself I could do nothing, but with God... Everything.
"Are you a sociopath? "
IDK, your the "psychologist" you tell me. Why do so many want to play the role of psychologist? Your wisdom is nothing compared to God's.
"That's because you lack discipline. With discipline, one may dabble in a variety of pursuits for education's sake, yet know when to pull out and
why. Clearly, you either don't have the inclination or don't have the control. That's the point of self-reliance - understanding yourself so you
know what needs to be done and when, how, and why. Perhaps "God" can give you some answers, but the Bible is not written on a personal basis. It
will tell you nothing about yourself except on the most general of terms. The subject itself inherently limits the degree to which any instance of the
Bible comprehends any one person specifically. Pair this with the fact that the psychology and social mechanics of the Bible are archaic at best, and
you have something that would not be out of place in a philosophy class. Excellent material for reference work, but nothing else. "
I have weaknesses and you do too. Be concerned of your own and I will be concerned for mine.
At first I was just analyzing the Bible, then I found out there is a beautiful Creature in it, and that the bible is the introduction to wisdom
itself, to Jesus Himself.
"So you are refining yourself in following "God"? On second thought, given your previous responses, perhaps that is best for you. Some people have
a difficult time using themselves as an anchor for propriety. You appear to be one of them."
Who am I?
