No man is an island but any man who cannot stand on his own two feet will always be in the control of other people. Sadly other people tend to be corrupted when they have the type of power over another that control gives. I thank goodness I am a woman then
Cagsy, you are spot on! Being directed by someone or something else shifts responsibility for actions and specifically mistakes. The devil did not make me do it any more then God did, I f*ck up just fine on my own thanks!
Tell me something that is true, I know you, if you done have God in you live then you can not be happy. There is a imitation happiness, sorry I forgot this one. So you think you are happy, therefore, you are happy.
Is that something I can look you in a book, to see if you are happy. One of you comment. People call me everything under sun, why done I get mad. Look at skyfire comment, your comment, read this hub I sould be mad as fire, but, I know you are not mad at me you are mad at Jesus Christ, Religion, Christian.
You ask a question yet to fail to clarify; Hope for Who ?
Believe it, or belive it not there is life outside all of the various religious sects. A world peopled by those of us who wish to think and find truth and possible enlightenment in our own way without being told what to think, say or do by others.
René Descartes, one of the worlds greatesr Philosophers said "I think therefore I am; or I am thinking, therefore I exist."
Another said "The begining of wisdom starts with the statement I do not Know...."
I chose to believe that I alone am the master of my destiny and where does that destiny lie ? I do not know !
However I have dedicated my life searching.
How sad is it for someone to think they know everything because they have read the Bible or some other holy book or be told by another that God is the only answer.
Great I like the way you put things, but, I know nothing save Jesus Christ. Let me ask you a question, If you see your brother getting ready to kill himself , would you say any thing? I understand what you are saying, but, notice what God is saying. 'Save your brother"
I live without god or religion. No one, just may be idiots or completely insensitive people can be permanently happy. We all have our ups and downs. We get sick, our relatives die, we have accidents, we lose friends, money, homes, out trust to certain people. But we cannot live with fear of being punished by god or smb.else, we have to have strength of our own within us and most people do. We have to believe into us as human beings to achieve a lot and contribute to it. I am very happy when my friends or family share their joy or achievement with me, I am very happy when I manage to achieve something myself. When I was a 9 years old girl, one starry night I went outside and looking into that vast abyss above me,I cried: "Dear god, or whoever it is, please, take my healthy legs and give it to my little brother, I want him to be healthy. I can use a wheel chair, let him run and play." My little brother was paralysed and could not walk and I loved him so much! The big dark sky never gave me an answer. My little brother never walked. I never prayed anymore. If we want our life to be better we have to work for that here, now, at this moment while we are still alive.
Everyone dies, but not everyone livesWe have pushed Death away from Life, the dying away from the living - all in order to impose the illusion of control on the uncertainty of change. We have lost touch with the natural...
And it led me to believe that there must be something there. I don't profess to understand it, and perhaps later I will tell you my theory of why god must exist, based only on my experience and so not subject to debate...
Why is it easier for people to accept the physical reality of life and turn away from the spiritual reality?What I mean by this is..People readily accept evolution (even though it is just a theory and there is no proof...
