Rather than blurping out 'just so ' statements how about you substantiate your claim ? I can see you only emitting hot air without any substance
what is different about you from before that experience? You are a Spirit Being. The Spirit Being cannot die. No mortal is born again. Transfiguration is being born again.
Despite it feeling extremely real and certain, there's some very compelling neuro-scientific evidence just in the past several years about the notion of free will actually being much more myth than anything resembling fact.
I loved his "each culture has a spin on it, as if Thor and Yahweh were comparable" or a lot of the other ones.
So Christians defend each and every verse in the bible as godly and right?
Interesting scenario. It contradicts the narrative of the OP, so haven't taken anything like this into consideration but it is realistic. The late arrivers should bring plenty of useful stuff to pay for acceptance into the colony.
Or in other words...
I think you should do what's best for you. Love yourself first. It is better to be happy and alone than miserable and shacked up with someone. If you're done and don't want to continue trying to work at things [particularly because he doesn't seem to be holding up his end of the bargain], free yourself. Live your life.
Never mind that millions were killed, robbed, raped, and enslaved in Jesus' name.
Hi Boris, welcome to the conversation! I happen to agree with you on this point. I have talked to several Bible scholars and they have all raised question as to the tampering of religious text, probably sometime around the 4th century when I believe it was Constantine who requested additions be inserted by catholic monks to make a more compelling narrative when "sharing the gospel" with non believers during the Crusades. This has caused me great concern as I have waded thru much research, with an open mind and a willing heart, trying desparately to discern the truth. This is still an ongoing search for me, which is why I post these contraversal topics and discuss these issues with anyone I can engage with, regardless of faith or religion or neither. As a progressive, I try to give all an equal voice in expressing what you feel and in so doing, I am broadening my perspective on issues the church has turned a blind eye to.
If by "it" you mean being a published author with several books, a millionaire and earning 6 figures a year, maybe....
?re, first part; but what would we talk about here? :P
How did nature know that bears would need white fur in the deep cold?
No you just feel like it is true, you have no evidence at all.
My grand paw preacher believed the original sin was how the people of ANCIENT CITIES mistreated newcomers. Sodom and Gomorahh being the main one.
The word moral has three meanings and you are conflating two of them. This discussion is about the adjective and not the noun.
I once held a little blue penguin in my hands.
her theory of symbiogenesis is a component of neo Darwinism.
Then proving the existence of this heaven of yours should pose no problem.
"You had a woman pastor on at the end of you sermon. It appeared and / or sound as though you whole hardly agreed with her position."
Okay, maybe it's not a matter of agreeing. But you just said an "image...used as an object of worship" and I don't use it as an object of worship, but as a symbol of my faith, so that people know what they're getting into when they meet me ;)
What court might order such a thing?
According with my beliefs, I would not support that abortion either.
