Even though I disagree with you on certain issues, I totally agree what damage religion has, done , it is not religion it is the people that use it as a power of control. Like a hammer is a great tool but used wrong or as a weapon is deadly.
But just like the Washboard and Sling Blade, some tools are no longer very useful to us. If we insist on continuing their use, then we are only stagnating ourselves, for no reason but to continue to be a sheeple.
I certainly agree that we have better technology ,but just because we have advanced in that knowledge does not mean as examples computers that are advanced and can do the work of doctors. But do we still need doctors certain thing you can not replace
When the harm outweighs the benefits of a tool, the reasonable thing to do is discard it:
I checked you link I am confident and very positive about my faith ! So far you talk about what people out grow! So far there is no total cures for sickness and death,and that is a reality the bible speaks about,until this ends the bible is updated
If there is a cure for sickness and death, it will be accomplished by science, and not an ancient book of myths. The bible provides nothing but confusion, hence there are over 3000 denominations...thinking they are interpreting God's words.
I agree getit there are many religions ,like it is many forms of counterfeit money, but do we have access to real money?Of course we do. That does not mean we should lose hope in what money can accomplish and what it is used for because of bad copies
Not quite a fair analogy. Since no gods have ever been proven to exist, it cannot be stated that there is a REAL word of God, hence every supposed word of God is counterfeit. First, prove the existence of God, then prove the bible is his words.
The proof is not good enough for you and has been stated , the answers are not by your standards ,which simply means you do not believe based on your own standards not the fact of your own existence and the creations of heavens are enough .
But is it religion or ego that is the culprit. Ego will misunderstand anything in order to create negative effects. Ego is ignorance.
True ego of a emotion can be a door stopper a ego will be more important to some people then accepting the truth of a matter. Some people will never admit to a good point of truth so they say all things you say are wrong. A few on HP prove this.
Kiss and Tales. I know you don't realize that your response is totally dishonest, because of your indoctrination, but we don't just SAY that you are wrong we flat out PROVE it. Fear and blind faith compels you to reject logical alternatives.
To getit my indoctrination ! So now you are the judge of who is indoctrin. You do not know enough about me personal to give thatJudgement ,but you prove by your comment that you judge people prematurely without accurate knowing facts, also the bible
I'm not judging you. I'm just proving that your claims lack any evidence. You don't get to define evidence based upon faith. Baseless claims are nothing but a response to indoctrination. I have been indoctrinated as well. Are you saying u haven't?
Indoctrin by who ! Who!s doctrin! You see you can not say because you do not have the facts on who what and how ,prejudging is not valid!
Also getit example if you wear prescription glasses your vision would not be like another ,there are people who do need prescription the see 20/20 ,so the one that needs help and limited should not doubt those who see and understand at 20/20.
To getit true the bible has the Old Testament those books lead to a future of prophesy to be fulfilled in our behalf, when that fulfillment arrived through the New Testament .both are a witness of before and after. Jesus updated a made it better.
If that god is satan sure they can. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie,"
That scripture at John 8:44 calls him. Murder! Lady E
I actually like the phrase, "what people have done to religion". That is a true observation.
I agree here Austinstar!
I also agree with Austinstar. Excellent observation. This is the essence of ego (ignorance). Selfish intent never looks for what is good for others.
