You obviously do not know what we're talking about here.
That's where my different concept of His relationship comes it. We are the effective, but imperfect, presence of God in the universe of space and time. He is outside of time, so His power and virtues are expressed by the sub-divine entities, the creatures, some more so than others.
The Church is losing credibility even among it adherents. In your analogy of corrupt politicians in the US, if the US never did anything about corrupt politicians then no one would believe the constitution. The say for the RCC, it is losing credibility because people are realizing that these sex scandals have been happening since the 4th century will little to no change. The church teaches preaches and insist on the Magisterium, Tradition, theology, the sacraments, etc bu they don't actually practice them. The constitution is respected in the US because it is enforced enough to make it real and valid.
Of course you are correct. I seem to get in the habit of including religion when responding to some who don't have any clue at all.
lol in retrospect, im not sure it's even 'gay'. i've done things some dudes would consider 'gay' and i dont have nuts hanging off my truck... so maybe its just stupid lol. overcompensation.
In the mind of the demon!

Is that somehow better? Invaded is invaded. "looking different" only helped make the conquest more palatable to the ignorant.
Why do I think so? What?
You are not even rational - "criminal" - this is how we love one another.
The meaning to every passage in the bible has been played out different interpretations to everyone.
Well, now we're talking about his stand on climate change. That's a different matter. It isn't ignorance though, it's indifference to things important in favor of playing to his base of stupid, hateful people.
Yes or No depends. ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??
So you're only dangerous on Wednesdays?
Wow, the OP isn't about atheism nor an attack on atheism. These comments are crazy. |-D
Yes. And if one takes a close look at these so-called "medical bankruptcies," a fair number are from claims of "depression" and "anxiety," people who have drug and alcohol problems, and - as you wrote - decided not to get health insurance.
I missed the whole show tonight. Had a school music concert to attend. Was not surprised at the results nor the resignation upon leaving the gymnasium.
Not for churches. For Christian (or Jewish, or Bhuddist, etc.) SCHOOLS.
The rules are still in effect.
Yeah I prefer the term evangelizing
Something wrong with the question.
This is but a tacit affirmation for man and woman to marry. It is not a proscription against same sex marriage. Jesus also never discussed flush toilets are laptops. Are those also against the Bible?
The world will always be the world and no reform movement is going to change it. On the whole we're doing well.
This analysis coincides with observations I've seen elsewhere: that the rise of Trump facilitated and legitimized all kinds of really nasty RW behavior that existed before in a less dramatic and widespread fashion -- among other things, by facilitating communication among such people. Part of the precise point of Trump is utter shamelessness, arising from utter unconcern about others and about the truth. It's not hard to connect that disposition to trolling -- indeed, it seems fundamental to the activity.
Didn't I say several times this guy was going to wing it. Kim is being prepped by the Chinese, Russian and Vietnamese governments. I wonder what Trump is willing to sell off of America to get his Nobel Peace Prize? Believe me, Trump only wants a win, a feather to put in his cap, and he can care less what the rest of us must pay in order for him to get it.
Out, then in.
An "atheist" does not get to define what "real Christianity" is.
Thank you for your thoughts, Godstrombone. I certainly dont reject Gods word, but I do challenge Christians to think outside the box. I really dont know how much of the Bible IS Gods word. I know that Jesus IS the Word. That is good enough for me. ???????

He uses his brain? The young man can not put a sentence together without a curse word in it. He has ?handlers? sitting behind him to remind him not to cuss. He?d be missing his front teeth if I was his dad and he talked about me like he did about his parents. He?s a PUTZ!
Good morning all.
God created everything you can see. Including your stupid question.
You are mistaking hope with logic.
