        If the training wheels come off and we are riding a bike without a front tire, its not very helpful.
        So Maybe God could give us all really great bikes for our birthdays!

      Religion has been evolving and will continue to evolve. It was,is and will be the basis for any true civilisation.
      Please don't start with the same "right wing back woods fundamentalism" stereotypes: it's so dumb.
      Examine highly evolved philosophy like the Bahai or the Hindu or the Bhuddist etc. and you will see vibrancy and futuristic ideals.  Try to get away from the stick in the mud stereotypes.
      Look at the positive developments in ecumenical movements and cease cherry picking the bad.
      Evolution remember? The scientific atheist principle governing so called modern thought should teach us that winning prototypes go on to become the later success stories (be they organisms or ideas). Religion created true humane humans as well as all culture therefore it will grow in strength and change to suit the circumstances like it always has.

      Actually, that is exactly what has been happening over the past few decades - religions are diminishing while 'spirituality' is increasing. God never wanted nor developed ANY religion - they are all man-made constructs. In 30-50 years, 'religions' will be GONE. Nice poignant satire by the Onion - and funny, to boot, ha!

      Christian science proves there is a God, while secular human science tries to prove the big bag theory, it  only proves creation by design.   There is no getting away from it except through denial, but there it is anyway.

          You do not know what Christian science is about I take it?   It is a fascinating study.  Creation happened somehow, to exclude 'the big bang theory' would be naive.  That is not to say the BANG happened like a blast or explosion ...but more reasonable to believe it evolved over time in space.  One thing science proves is that it was by design by intelligence...a Creator.

          I'm not a hell fire and brimstone peddler.  "All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return."  -  Ecclesiastes 3:20, I believe that is a reference to our bodies, not our spirit and soul.  All that is left when we are cremated is some dust and fragments of bone.

            Meandering thoughts:
            What happens to our invisible soul after we die? Our invisible soul goes to a place which is also invisible? Is Heaven invisible?
            After we shed our bag of rattling heavy bones, we are light and free!
            Even a murderer, a Hitler gets to die. What happens to these types after they die?
            Are they also in Heaven for the sheer fact that they have no body?
            What would be Hell, if also invisible?

            What is celestially located hell fire and brimstone? Does it burn you to death … but you are already untouchable by physical fire and brimstone! You are invisible!

            The answer to these questions are not in the Bible as far as I know.

              Jesus caused many who were blind to see. -- “One thing I do know: I was blind, and now I can see!” John 9:25 

              There are several verses about spiritual blindness. Pharisees and religious leaders of the Law, Jesus called blind because they refused to see spiritual truth.

              "The Law and the Kingdom of God"  Luke 16:14-31
              https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s … ersion=ESV
              The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him. 15 And he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.... The Rich Man and Lazarus...

              "Heart" is interchangeable with "Spirit" in Scriptures (mind, soul)

              Hebrews 4:12-14:   "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight; everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. 14Therefore, since we have such a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we profess.…"

            Christain science facts

            The world largest Creationism museum tries to prove the earth is 6000 years old. Along with dinosaur co existing with them. That can be easily proven wrong.

            Noah story of the flood that hit the highest mountain. That would take 4 times the water on earth. Plus all the animal would die except the turkey vulture from freezing and too thin of air for breathing

            Russia drill a hole in the ground 9 km down. Then a Christain scientist put a microphone down to study all the screaming going on in hell. Their other proof that Jesus visit hell to covince the torture people he is suffering more than them.

            When are they going send down the next Christ-like person to report the evidence of hell in Russia that really dose exist.

            This is bigger than landing on the moon If he has enough faith to do it he proves everything Jesus said was the truth. Or just prove he is another idiot

              Those who believe in a younger age for the earth tend to agree that the Bible does mention dinosaurs, though it never actually uses the word “dinosaur.” Instead, it uses the Hebrew word tanniyn, which is translated a few different ways in our English Bibles. Sometimes it’s “sea monster,” and sometimes it’s “serpent.” It is most commonly translated “dragon.” The tanniyn appear to have been some sort of giant reptile. These creatures are mentioned nearly thirty times in the Old Testament and were found both on land and in the water.

                  Textbooks on evolution neglect to mention it for obvious reasons.

                  The layer is a 15- to 18-inch-thick layer of phosphate rock in the southeastern United States. The rock is 65 percent phosphate, which means that the layer is made primarily of the bones of dead animals. The bones were clearly deposited by a huge flood; the deposit is at least as large as the Everglades! And mixed into the layer are bones of all sorts of animals that evolution says could not have lived together, including human bones and Hadrosaurus bones

        To digress from the subject at hand, the poor will have to learn to help themselves & to progress away from beliefs, consciousness, lifestyles, mentalities, mindsets, outlooks, philosophies, & psychologies which causes, lead to, & result in poverty.  Many people are poor, especially in the United States, because of what I have described.  They are poor because of a passive, rescue me, irresponsible, & fatalist attitude.  NO ONE has to be poor in the United States.   No one owes the poor anything-the poor owes themselves. To help the poor only causes them to expect it, becoming more dependent, & never rising above their negative socioeconomic condition.
        http://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/9025033.jpg

        There have been government programs ad infinitum to help the poor but to no fruition.  The poor need to help themselves & stop being passive, expecting others to do the job for them. Don't you agree?  Oh yes, religious charities also enable the poor by subliminally conveying to them that being poor is okay, even noble.  They also keep the poor powerless by such conveying & themselves in power.   Time to educate poor people by tough love & teach them to do for self.

    As humankind evolves into spiritual adulthood, there will be no longer a need for religion.  Religion was instituted for the purpose of keeping humankind in spiritual infancy.   All educated & aware people know this.   Religion was constructed to control & disempower the masses, keeping them uneducated, unquestioning, powerless, blindly obedient,  & woefully ignorant.   

    More & more people are progressing out of religion & into spirituality which is beyond religion.  Only a very minute few will be religious in the 21st century & beyond.  Religion is slowly becoming extinct.  Even people who belong to a religion aren't taking religion seriously.  They see it as a psychic balm of sorts.  Only a few retrogressive elements are taking religion seriously.

    Matthew 13:24-30 (NIV)

    The Parable of the Weeds
    24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

    27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

    28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

    “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

    29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

    Conclusion:
    God will never wean Humans off religion unless it's already time for harvest. Unfortunately, harvest is not yet. What are you going to do with the other righteous truly devoted Christians out there who are really doing their Job? Must wheat really have to suffer because the field is full of weeds? Wheat and  weeds are present not only within religious organization but also in other organizations such as government establishments, businesses, schools and even families. Then do we also have to wean the Earth of these organizations?
    God will spare the whole City if only He can find few residents with a righteous conduct in that City.

    Weaning the whole earth with religion is like depriving Man his Wife. God said it is not God for a Man to be alone. No matter how frail the Woman is, Man has to take care of Her because tomorrow, the next Son they may bear might become the ruler of the world.

      Weeds are a hell of a problem.

      What I do is play God and control the air, Sun and water inside a greenhouse. Result very little or no weeds and bugs. Rather than these Christain farmer who use pesticides and growing chemical that kill everything else insight and reproduction of seed.

      Not only that, most animals on earth are dead the last 50 years. These top authorthies politician/religion their time is up from ruling the earth. They also interfere on how we have sex/love and what natural products we put into our bodies. That"s not all folks, they threaten us with a second coming to destroy the earth if we don't obey even harder. The top 5 threats to mankind is the natural environment relationship related, not the fear of Jesus to get another shot at us.

      Supernatural superstitious organization are not working and empty prayers to a natural planet that is already given, let's not mess it up.

      It's worth worshiping nature, woman and the Sun. Rather than everything synthetically made like religion/politician who are the only ones who can get elected and attempt to create a phony One world order and one world religion.

      I can except keeping one's religion to thy self as an important Commandment in order except and respect most others.

        "Not only that, most animals on earth are dead the last 50 years."

        An interesting claim.  Whether you're using total animal tonnage or the number of individual animals, I highly doubt that over half of animal life has died in the last 5 decades (particularly as half the tonnage of animal life on the planet is bacteria and far more than half if it is the number of individual bacteria).  Can you back up your numbers at all?

          According to WWF, Half of the wildlife animals, birds and fish have died in the world in the past 40 years.

          I don't count livestock in which much of it is unhealthy to eat and inhumane to produce.

            The government says they need to be the keepers of land and our natural resources because they know better than the people who inhabit the lands.  They end up ruining those lands, and eliminating the natural resources people use to survive with pesticides, toxic spills, etc.

            Not so.  The WWF figures apply ONLY to some 3,000 specific vertebrate species, and even then had to be recalculated using a different base of species to come to that figure.  The 2012 calculation, for instance, showed that it was increasing - something they didn't want to spread, so they picked different species to use.  A database with many more reptiles, fish and amphibians, and only a very small portion of the 62,000 species described around the world.  It is worth noting, at the same time, that all invertebrates are excluded from the calculation; a group that includes a large majority of all animal life.

            I suppose it helps as well to exclude domestic animals, as you indicate.  Cherry picking the species to be included is an easy way to "prove" the point.

              OK, I could have said natural living animals.

              These Governments don't really care about human, when they enslave and cage us.

              What protection and research could Governments possibly care about wildlife destruction. The wildlife ripoff is second to the drug trade. Since we are bio organisms first, it's most important to me since age 6 with a zoo in my basement to belonging to many wildlife organization today. Building many natural history museum displays and theme park animal displays.

              After traveling 95 countries since the 60s I have no problems being an eye witnesses to 90% big fish in the Ocean being dead. Or to 75% useable trees dead and most mammals, birds and greatest amphibians dead. If we can't get environmental lawyers to do a dam thing. I'll sculpture wildlife stories around the world.

                God gave the solution but He knew Man will present their own. Christ also said many will come in my name and will deceive many. God wanted the weeds to stay with the wheat because he wanted to boost the immunity of the wheat. Immune wheat are likely to survive pests as well. When consumed by Man, these wheat provide great boost in Human immune system. Very few of these wheat could indeed survive but these survivor wheat will live in the house of God.

                For the other wheat intended for mass production, you may apply your "play God and control the air, Sun and water inside a greenhouse". But know that these wheat are not fit in the house of God for they are gentile's wheat.

                Now as for the weeds, God appropriated 6 days of work in the field but on the 7th day, the shemitah of God must be observed to strengthen again the land to support the wheat in overcoming the weeds. This does it all. Violation of this instruction from God resulted into the field's poor condition today.

                God said it is His duty to separate the sheep from the flock not ours, for we are not capable anyway, on the Judgment Day.
                =====================================
                "“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

                29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”"

                  1. You work longer and harder going it the old fashion way (weeding and bugs by hand forever)

                  2. Commercially planting with poisoning the soil, plant, bugs and humans.

                  3 Work smarter, not longer. Work eeverything healthier in a greenhouse for 4 season, easy to bug and weed. If God loves grace, he will love us, and give the finger to Satan over doing of poison, weeds,bugs and the evil of money.

                    If you are a rich parent and you give everything your children whatever they want then when they grow up, they will only exploit your wealth to the very last penny. When everything is gone, they will even blame you for their miseries.

                    Parenting on the human realm is a very long, painful, tedious process often requiring acts of sacrifice, discipline, wisdom, passion and love. That is the way to nurture and produce truly responsible, wise, firm and obedient Children. Whatever your children do is likely to flourish.

                    On the Spiritual realm nurturing God's children could take as long as 6000 years perhaps. The creation of the Earth and Universe took Billions of years. There is no shortcut to success.

                    Whoever gave you the idea that we can create success easily by the use of wit and intellect could be someone whom God Himself gave all the power of Wit and Intellect but in the long run, is not anymore willing to endure pain and suffering with God in creating other beings much much more capable of restoring and taking care the creations of God because he already lusted and wanted to take the creation by Himself.

    "Got to wean humans off religion ",  ........  There is an awesome point  of contention !  And my point ?    The weaning of humanity away from at least religious like morals , IS the biggest reason for the decline in cultural , social , political maturity in not only America  , but all across our world .     Even a path of intellectualism alone isn't enough  without a sense of common human decency  !   And that doesn't mean just Christianity but all religiously  influenced human behavior.  Wean man  away from God ? More the opposite would be far better , but I'm certainly not surprised to see this coming from here !

    Are the origins of morality  assumed to originate  from intellectualism only ? Only psuedo-atheists think so here.

    A better question ,  Does intellectualism generate enough morality ? Personally , I'd rather be acquainted with   a decent  lower I.Q. God freak than  a dozen pretend  intellectuals .
