a guilt inducing means to control the masses and making them subservient to a religious authority? Or do you strongly believe that sin and evil exist in ACTUALITY and REALITY?

I've often wondered how people came to believe that 'god' actually wrote the various books of the bible. The fact is that these books were written and chosen for inclusion by various people. A 'god' did not stretch a finger down from the sky and ...
Very true! A lot of folks act as though there were no corrupt ministers and prophets during "biblical times". The fact that there was a "process" to decide which books to include/leave out is an admission there was a "slant" to control the masses
Ppl have told me that the texts that were ommitted were not true...likely story of the ones who put the books together. Their aganda anyone? Oh do not ? authority they yell at me. Or you will go to hell if you read them for Urself. Hogwash!
I've heard the "decision makers" didn't like what was written in some books. The Book of Enoch has an interesting storyline for why it's not included. In the Alphabet of Ben Sira (Lilith) was Adam's "first wife" created at the same time. LOL!
Well the scriptures are inspired by God , his thoughts transmitted to men of his choice where his spirit of power worked with them to write. down his thoughts, not hard to believe, because we all are transmitting through the Internet as we speak,.
God doesn't have a religion...men do for the simple fact of mass controling others.
its your loss and u are welcome to it.
have a great day.
Good and Evil exist everyday in our lives,
crime against another human being is evil, taking another's life because he can and holds the power is evil. There are many examples, but on the other hand goodness supplies us with necessary things of life
If you only live in the physical life mentality, then you accept the conditioning. But if you look at higher wisdom, it is an illusion, and it will pass too. Everything disappears into nothing upon a close examination. How can nothing be evil?
But "nothing"is everything,so your intention matters.Since we have consciousness--it must be for a reason.
To God the choices we make lead to record. dealing with our characters , rather we make it a practice of doing good, or a practice of acting out evil.
Which lead into a future of life eternal , man was made into the image of God which is something
I agree and yet what I notice is that laws of what is sin or evil is based on what would only hurt us as humans, example lying only hurts those who practice it and the ones they use it on, sins are usually laws that effect us as humans not God.
A concept that man can make a choice of action . If your neighbor commit s a crime against you , then what concept is that, it is not against God .it is against you.
People would like to believe that the meaning of evil is only in religion. NO!
Why do you ALWAYS pull from that Bible that is not complete? Things were good way before that Bible even existed. Evil is only what men's thoughts are. God is Within you and it is what you have in your heart
So you would say to Jesus why do you always pull from the bible? " Jesus himself said at Matthew 4:4 But in reply he said It is written " Man must live , not on bread alone , but on every word that coming out of God's Mouth " the bible is his mouth.
