if all children go to heaven my question is, why not kill all the children in the world that way everyone of them will have a 100% chance to go to heaven? Wouldn’t it be immoral to allow a child to grow and maybe no go to heaven? Wouldn’t it be moral for you to slay children and guarantee that they will live forever in heaven?
Your post is moot. It makes no sense more than religion itself.
There are specific instructions NOT to kill.
The act, whatever the afterlife consequences for those being slain, is therefore an immoral one.
The law thou shalt not kill was not shared by the law bringer. Besides the benefits of your children living forever in heaven, surely out way the sin of murder. Which BTW can be forgiven.
Not sure what religious text you are reading from, but the faith that I follow does indeed state thou shall not kill.
Similarly, it's not up to me to rationalize the morality of a forbidden act through its perceived 'benefits'...
and whether an immoral act can be forgiven, does not make it any less immoral.
What is moral? Allowing your child to live on earth through suffering and maybe love, but with only a shallow chance of going to Heaven (Christian Belief system) or sparing them the torment and sending them straight to Heaven for all eternity?
Moral is following the commandments and the instruction of God.
What is your definition of God? How does this God give you morals? My morals were developed through nurture and my own personal opinions.
"thou shallt not kill"
Christianity? The bible?
Doesnt that same book tell you to kill those who try to lead you away from god? Doesnt that same book tell you to kill witches?
I think you need a new religion. You obviously dont know anything about this one.
Try reading the book before you decide to believe it is true. Otherwise you just look like an idiot.
It's not our place to determine a persons time on earth.
We aren't to take another's life. Quote all those scriptures from the OT if you guys want, but that was for that day and age. Christ came to set the record straight about how it was 'suppose' to be from the beginning.
No you shouldn't kill children.
Sorry you are wrong here. All the OT laws still stand. Jesus only came to abolish the sacrificial laws. No law will be up lifted until heaven and earth are destroyed.
Ha! So it was ok to stone rape victim to death back then?
Wow. Thats some imagination you have. How may I ask do you picture life 2000 years ago?
You think there is ANY circumstances when those acts are good moral behaviour?
You'll go to any length to defend your ridiculous book wont you?
"Wouldn’t it be immoral to allow a child to grow and maybe no go to heaven?" The logic would indicate yes it would be immoral.
I am not agreeing with the slaying of children just making an obvious point on Christianity and it’s BS
Unfortunately what meant to be a joke (somewhat cruel one) is an awful truth. In some religious sects they practise that - to kill everybody (mass suicide)including children to go to heaven at once. Do not want to go into details - too bizarre and depressing.
"The law thou shalt not kill was not shared by the law bringer." Just like the US government.
"but the faith that I follow does indeed state thou shall not kill.". Belief the reference was to 'God the law bringer' or so it was my impression.
"Moral is following the commandments and the instruction of God." Morality is conditional consequence. The treatment of things is based on what they are worth.
"the is no compulsion to agree with me". Beats me whatever that means. Are not you supposed to be doing comedy?
only if children have accepted jesus as their savior...if not your idea if implemented wont work for children of non believers...
Paradox for you! So all the children and unborn children that God slaughtered in Genesis are in hell? Unborn children cannot except Jesus as a savior.
well can't help it...accepting christ is must for any to go to heaven...that is rule...no liberties...
Your okay with eternal hell for children or was that a mockery towards religion in general?
m not ok with any one going to hell just because he/she doesnot believe in some god or book or prophet or any...infact according to me biggest hell is living in fear of hell or greed of heaven...one must live life according to one's conscience and forget about god ...who cares what some one up there thinks ... i care more about fellow human beings than caring about some one who existence itself is not proven...
No wonder religious people think we are evil incarnate.
PLEASE NOTE: This sicko does not represent Atheists in any way.
Isn't science fiction, myth and superstition fun to argue about.
If you read between the lines in "Fadedsnow's" comments and understand the points he's trying to make, he is making sense if one believes in scriptural "garble,"
Of course, in reality, it's all silly and a waste of time to consider except as childish entertainment.
It does pass the time and make for a good LOL
I personally dont understand how anyone in todays day and age (from a civilised, developed country) can beleive in any religion without evidence.
Of course it is perfectly understandable that third world countries will be more religious because education is not as good and widespread, but in america and the uk?
I honestly dont understand it. I also dont believe the statistics given that atheists in the uk make up only 15% of the population and even less in america.
When looking at religious videos on youtube, if you check the thumb up and thumb down rating, pro atheist thumbs seem to outnumber pro theist thumbs 2 to 1 and since most of those are from americans, I think that says a lot about what the numbers are more likely to be.
What do you think?
The majority of we Americans are still "primitives."
We pass on our religious idiocy to our children and they to theirs.
All mnonotheists are guilty of the same illogical, deadly practices.
I've written many hubs about this subject.
It will not change in our or our childrens lives.
I know he was trying to prove scripture is nonsense but he is going about it in a rather destructive way.
How many of you guys are American?
yes they do if under age of accountability

Why is it assumed that Morals are dictated by Religion? Doesn't that scare you?It is mentioned a lot that Morals are dictated by Religion, and the inference (or the direct statement occasionally) is that therefore Atheists are immoral. What makes people think this? I'm curious. Has anyone...

Are you afraid of going to Hell?I'm afraid. I'm worried I should be religious to avoid Hell, but I don't believe God would send me to Hell because I don't know what to believe.So are you afraid of going to Hell for all eternity?

Do you believe religion is needed for morality? Is the bible the only guide to morality?If you believe these things, do you really think you would go around commiting crimes and immoral acts if the bible didn't tell you not to? I actually give (most) people more credit than that, don't you? If this...

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...

Okay, I've really taken an interest in the forums for the last few days as I need something to keep my mind off of something. I've noticed a few things and came up with a few theories on HubPages groupthink. Thought it be fun to test them out, so here goes:I, technically, am a Unitarian...
