LOL did you not understand what " specific" means ??
He certainly represents the idea of a Christian god. But the idea is flawed and the man is flawed.
I just came her for the boobs and beers. Why did you forget the beers?
"You're such a hypocrite."
Um, okay... considering eternal torture doesn't seem to me to be peace of mind; the false hope is at least matched with a false fear; the guidelines are so shit that they have been part of the very problems with the filthy religion from the outset. It reduces the speed of social change from rapid to glacial... and, no, that's not a good thing.
If you read my post as carefully as you think you did, you'll see that I wrote that Jesus was predicting that the end of the world would come within his own lifetime. Just because he promoted himself as a prophet of the end times doesn't mean what he was predicting came true.
No but I will look that up. So cool.
YOU say: You should do good works. So should I.
The facts that the GOP caused the budget crisis in Kansas public schools, and the fact that sex education reduces unwanted pregnancies. Are you admitting you were, shall we say "mistaken" about those?
God is love. How can love create hell?
God has already proved He exists through the things He created. Your existence proves His existence because without Him you wouldn't even be able to draw your next breath. But true science proves that there HAS to be a designer. The things we see and that are all around us didn't just happen by chance. Your reasoning is as logical as this graphic. And you're pulling all the bogus strawmen arguments out to keep yourself from believing.
Those televangelists have both the money and love of it.
"I vust only following orders" -- Nuremberg trials November 20, 1945.
I can call myself that but if you call me that, it won't hurt my feelings. It's not the first time, I assure you. Sorry to burst your bubble if it didn't have the intended effect.
It's Jesus' way or no way.
The solution is smarter, more responsible gun owners. Even my firearms instructor shot himself in his own home. Well, his dog did. He had a loaded and cocked gun on him while watching TV because...reasons? Dog jumped on him and BANG.
Hey the prodigal son has returned and the bank account must be empty. lol Good, Bad and Indifferent depending on who is trying to hang you any given day. Hope you had a great holiday and I may be the only one that missed you but I did miss you. lol
Some people twist separation with abuse to try to advance their political agenda and some people see that as a slap to children that have actually been abused. I guess we know which side you're on.
Sorry, but no - SCOTUS did not rule on the religious liberty issue, the decision was really a due process / expression decision. All the court decided was that by publicly announcing their contempt for the baker and his religious views they deprived him of a fair hearing, and thus their order he make a gay cake was null.
corner. At 70 I am still learning, I doubt there is a limit to knowledge but I am confident that there is a limit to belief. If a belief becomes too removed from practical reality it may become dangerous to the believers as well as others.
Rather he's telling the truth or not you really shouldn't be in a relationship especially a marriage when you can't trust the other party. Decide for for yourself if you want to continue to fight for your marriage & if you're willing to do so alone.
What do you consider evidence? I've read that, with reluctance, even atheist historians agree that Jesus was a 'historical personage.' Look into it, not sure why you haven't yet.
Not me, not yet. I like to wait till a series is over or almost so I can binge watch it till the end. This one is on my list.
Do you mean I don't know much about the intelligence of dropouts? Tell us if you do.
I require seeing all of the calibration and audit sheets for the thermometers used today and 84 years ago.
This is exactly the problem presented by the ancient Christian Gnostics. They judged, from the hostility, indifference and mechanistic menace of the material universe that it was either not created by a deity, or was created by a false God, whom they called "the Demiurge", whom they frequently identified with YHWH, the god of Israel.
Yeah it looks like the towel on the Mussy's heads.
There is no proof or evidence for the Christian god.
Modern humans have existed for 200,000 years. (Per google... human ancestors a few million.)
Sorry... didn't have time to look it up so went with memory as to where the genealogy was in Luke.
Why would they get that far? As soon as he knew he was being asked to custom design a cake, he informed them that he couldn't do it so as not to lead them on.
Do you also laugh at the fox "chuckleheads"?
