When I talk about politics, I do tend to offend some people, but I feel that is because I tend to be very blunt and sometimes brutally honest. i.e I do not feel we should be helping the middle east anymore because we have spent thousands of lives trying to free these people and as soon as we leave, they get taken back over by terrorists. Even when we give them our most efficient and up-to-date weapons and training, they still prove incompetent. What we are doing now is extremely similar to what we did in Vietnam, and we all know how that turned out. I also feel instead of the death penalty for murderers, we should use life imprisonment because it causes insanity and a slow breakdown of their humanity. We have no evidence that Hell exists, but with life imprisonment we can make their time a living one, just as it is for the family of the murdered. When one is sentenced to life in prison, he has nothing to live for anymore, but we are making him live anyways, to feel the pain and emptiness of those close to the one he murdered. I feel this is a more satisfying punishment than the death penalty, which I feel is the easy way out, just as suicide bombers are cowards.

For some reason I read religion as politics. Oops. :oops: Anyways, I am an Atheist, so sometimes I end up offending religious people for some reason.

It's not likely Jesus said that. This quote was attributed to him by his followers after his death once they realized the physical kingdom of God wasn't coming anytime soon. They spiritualized it in the same way Ellen G. White spiritualized the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Well..i guess that is possible..but it is a recurring element in religions all across the world..an essence and truth that rings true for countless individuals and groups throughout the ages...

Nothing Jesus said was new...

The truth and essences are always the same...

Only the language...groups..and individuals change...

l most definitely experience the bliss and or nirvana in now almost every moment of every day...

it took me over 5 decades and countless challenges at adversities..to get tHERE...

But the evidence of whoever said the kingdom of heaven is now..is simply my life..and so many others..scattered here and there...

and almost every animal..but man..experiencing it common..as NOW

But as i have stated many times on this site..and so many others have reported throughout the years...

if ya don't actually experience this bliss...

it simply does not exist...

and oh boy it ain't free ..as brain washed individuals subject to the illusion of complex languages..collective intelligence and cultures...

can only move through it only IF THEY FIND A WAY..OR PATH..

THAT'S THE HARD PART...

A PATH THAT TRULY WORKS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL..THAT WILL ALWAYS VARY FOR FOLKS THAT PERCEIVE AND EXPERIENCE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY....

Well dude.. that is exactly my philosophy...

EXCEPT.. I WILL REPLACE MORALS WITH ETHICS..AS MORALS IN GENERAL ARE OFTEN NOT ETHICAL AT ALL

The difference BEYOND THAT IS AND A HUGE IS..IS i have a totally open mind..and heart...AND SPIRIT..

THE TRINITY OF TOTAL HUMAN BEING..IF YA WILL..

LIKE THOSE CATHOLICS THAT START WITH THE FATHER AT THE MIND.. THE SON AT THE HEART..
AND THE SPIRIT ACROSS THE SHOULDERS..TO EXPRESS WHAT THEY CALL AS A SIGN OF THE CROSS...

SO..

THE FATHER IS THE MIND OR WHAT SOME FOLKS DESCRIBE AS THE BRAIN
THE SON OR SUN IS THE HEART OR FIRE OF CORE OF BEING AND EMOTION
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ONE ALL ENCOMPASSING FORCE..THE CHI..THE QI..THE DAO..THE GOD..THE ALLAH..THE GREAT SPIRIT..THE CHRIST OR WHATEVER THE f**k [email protected] IS
ASonE

IT AIN'T NO FRIGGIN CROSS OF DEATH..
IT IS THE SYMBOL FOR FULL RESURRECTION OF THE HUMAN BEING IN THE NOW..SIMPLY AS IS IS...IS NOW

Without ALLTHAT the eye of the needle

is completely closed...

And that my friend...

Will make yA the camel...

But there is one other thing...

If ya ever get there...

You will never roll your eyes

again..

period

Notice the word ya..
instead of you..

Ya is directed at your spirit

You is directed at your

noun..

Same way most lost people around here..

look AT THE TRUE FORCE THAT EXISTS THAT SOME PEOPLE THROUGH ALL RECORDED HISTORY..

DESCRIBE AS GOD..ALLAH..CHRIST..THE GREAT SPIRIT..THE DAO..THE QI..THE CHI..THE HOLY SPIRIT OR WHATEVER THE f**k

IS SIMPLY THE ESSENCE OF [email protected]

AS A NOUN
INSTEAD OF A VERB

GOD IS FORCE IS ENERGY..IS MOVEMENT

IT AIN'T NO DEAD VEHICLE OR VESSEL TO DESCRIBE A MYTHOLOGICAL BEING WITH A DISTINCT PERSONALITY...

LIKE A SILLY LITTLE ANT

OF
A
HUMAN
BEING..

GOD IS ALL

NOT
JUST
A
SILLY
LITTLE
HUMAN
BEING
PERSONALITY


OR WHAT THAT LITTLE ANT
CAN SEE WITH HIS LITTLE OR BIG TELESCOPE..
IN JUST THE
LIMIT
OF
ALL
OF
THAT

GOD IS ALLITIS
ASonE

And of course all of this is just my opinion..in totality..and the opinion of quite a few
other enlightened silly little human ants..
across recorded history..

as NOW IS NOWKNOWN

BUT NOT JUST A FRIGGIN
NOUNKNOWNOW
OF THE TOTALITY
OF
[email protected] IS
NOW

FTW

NOT

WTF

IS
IS

Personally, I have a large amount of disdain for religion. I don't like the philosophy it instills and I don't like the way it often makes people think and feel about the world. However, it's been a long time since I've attacked people for being religious.

Truth be told, anymore I look at more in a way that I am befuddled by people (especially intelligent people) who believe in things like religion, or any other pseudo-intellectual belief system. I get that it makes people happy --for reasons I'll admit that I don't understand-- but I just wish people's innate response was "Believing this makes me feel better and helps me cope with the world", instead of "Clearly, Book X is the most important book ever written and is obviously true. Can't you see that it's obviously and plainly true?"

The aspects of religion that lead people to bully people (homosexuals, women, science, atheists, followers of other religions, etc) really bothers me though. It's why I have such a strong distaste for the entire practice of religion. If all religions followed the Methodist example, I'm pretty certain that my only problem with religion would be that it makes claims that don't correspond to this reality.


That may be the greatest/strangest complement to Methodists ever.

Dr. Peter Berger on Religion & Modernity.

Pentecostalism which first occured on 312 Azusa St Los Angeles CA has gone global and may be the fastest growing religion on earth.

In the late 1890's the chain link or chain topic system of bible teaching/preaching was developed and picked of by and used by the new pentecostal religion. Every church I have went to with only one exception uses this method. I did not know what to call it so I called it the cut and splice bible study. You can say almost anything you want with this method, it has a lot of flexibility which I suppose why it seems to be universally used often with much success.

+ 1 FOR THE AQUAS


I found that Aquariuses like to do this. In fact, I am really good at spotting them online now. Whenever someone is saying things to deliberately provoke I ask them if they are Aquarius and they say they are and I am a good guesser but really it's just I notice a pattern in the Aquas. They always try to offend certain others by what they say. They feel like they are doing the world a service this way. So Aspies, no. Aquas, yes.

If Christianity's pure fiction, then what incentive did the New Testament authors have for inventing it?

To provide propaganda that would keep the Patriarchy in power, promote slavery, keep women subjugated (and thus maintain the patriarchy), and to justify conquest of foreigners and indigenous peoples by genocide.

These were the principles of America's Founding Fathers.


That is the most bs story I've ever heard. That is about as likely as you being a deacon. Bs...
