Why  take  a  chance,  by  rejecting  the  invitation?   What could it hurt, to just be on the safe side?   


I  wouldn't  insult  someone  dear  to  you,  unless  of  course  TPaine, who'll  understand, so please  don't  blaspheme  my  God  who's  given me  and  many  others  MIRACLES, and  it wouldn't  hurt  us  to  show  respect  by  captitolizing His  name, also.   After all He's done for us,  that's imo the least we can  do  for  HIm.

Yes, and I already have. There's really nothing to be said in favor of your position. Even if one posits the existence of God (which I don't) your account of his behavior doesn't make a lick of sense.

I have never blasphemed any God. I have criticized the Bible because I don't believe it is the Word of God. In fact I believe that its description of God is blasphemous.

In your last paragraph you asked us not to blaspheme your God, and in the very next paragraph you blaspheme the God(s) of Goddess(es) the other posters here by saying they are human inventions.

I'm not a fan of Paul Crouch Sr., Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, or other televangelists because they are multi-millionaires who take the money contributed by their followers, some who are so poor they are eating cat food to save a few cents, and use that money to build huge homes and buy expensive cars and other products. Evidently they don't accept in what Jesus of Nazareth said in Matthew 19:16-26, Mark 10:17-27, and Luke 18:18-27.

One thing we have in common, Eagle, is we both seem to be having printer problems at the same time. I enjoy the discussions in this forum because it gives us a chance to present our opinions. Laws, religious or secular have all been changed over time. They have to adapt to the cultural, political, and societal conditions of the times. These changes have existed since the beginning of civilization, long before the Christian religion existed. Personally, I believe in a Creator (First Cause) but see him/her far differently than the deity described in the Bible.

Christianity existed for over 1000 years before people had appliances, cars, planes, or electricity but the Pagan Romans did have running water. The people who started Christianity were primitive enough to belove that the Earth was flat and was the center of the universe. The American Founding Fathers were men who had various religious beliefs. Some were Christians, some were Unitarians, some were Deists, and some were Atheists. They were smart enough to create a secular republic that neither supported or prohibited religious beliefs. I have read and studied the Bible and other religions for over 50 years, so I believe I am qualified to discuss it. It's important to for us to grab the right lifeline, but each individual has to make their own decision about which one is the right one to grab.

I've never found anyone who could prove that his or her religious beliefs were the only correct ones. Maybe they all are. It's not impossible that there are many paths to the same place.

The definition of idol is:

idol -- noun
1. an image or other material object representing a deity to which religious worship is addressed.
2. Bible .
    a. an image of a deity other than God.
    b. the deity itself.
3. any person or thing regarded with blind admiration, adoration, or devotion: Madame Curie had been her childhood idol.
4. a mere image or semblance of something, visible but without substance, as a phantom.
5. a figment of the mind; fantasy.
Dictionary.com Unabridged
Based on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2012.


By that definition the Bible itself could be considered an idol, and people could unknowingly be worshiping it rather than God.

Jesus was executed by Rome because they considered his popularity to be a threat to lead a revolt against them because it had happened many times before. Why should the Jewish people have to "adjust" to accept someone as the Messiah who according to their holy books did not meet the qualifications the prophets predicted the Messiah would have. Link

More blasphemy, Eagle? This is a multi-faith forum that has people of various belief system (or no belief system) read and post in. If you want people to believe as you do, present some actual proof that you are right. I've asked hundreds of Christians to do so and have yet to have anyone present it. You may want to stop and think that all believers in God actually worship the same God in different ways based of different holy books. I respect your right to hold the beliefs you do and I'm sorry you seemingly refuse to respect mine.

First of all the word "god" is not a name, it is a job description. I do not capitalise job descriptions. Do you know the name of your god? I will gladly capitalise your gods name, if you give it. I have never blasphemed your god or any other god.

My gods are not Invented, they are gods. How insulting of you. You speak of miracles, I have experienced many miraculous experiences. None from your god, but from mine gods.

My gods do not require anyone to grovel at their feet. They do not ask for "Praise a thons" They love me and support me without making me feel inferior.


I have no problem if that gives you spiritual fulfilment, but do not assume others require the same.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

First of all the word "god" is not a name, it is a job description. I do not capitalise job descriptions. Do you know the name of your god? I will gladly capitalise your gods name, if you give it. I have never blasphemed your god or any other god.

My gods are not Invented, they are gods. How insulting of you. You speak of miracles, I have experienced many miraculous experiences. None from your god, but from mine gods.

My gods do not require anyone to grovel at their feet. They do not ask for "Praise a thons" They love me and support me without making me feel inferior.


I have no problem if that gives you spiritual fulfilment, but do not assume others require the same.

"The right of voting for representatives is the primary right by which other rights are protected. To take away this right is to reduce a man to slavery, for slavery consists in being subject to the will of another, and he that has not a vote in the election of representatives is in this case." Thomas Paine:
Dissertation on First Principles of Government (July 1795)

Eagle1, I'm a traditional American Indian. The only thing that Christianity has offered us has been death and despair.

Antichrist will claim to be Christ, as well as, the Iman or Caliphate, Buddha, Quezacotyl, Jewish Messiah, Baal, on and on, for he'll put claim to all gods as he fulfills all the above.


He will talk of peace and prosperity; he'll take away the daily oblation as Daniel reports, because the world will think he is the Coming One Promised.


Therefore, complete deception on every scale around the world, for the world will whore after him, as he heals the "deadly wound" of the One World Global System!


Get set for it!


Watch Jerusalem!


The Word of Almighty God, says so, and so shall it be!


The Word of God is AWESOME!


In Christ,


Nancy
