Why is it ?

    why is it that everyone doesn't respond to the truth when we hear it.

        The most popular threads are nomsensual ones like, did Jesus have a penus or why does God let so many children starve to death.
       Stuff that don't have an answer is most popular.


        WHY?     I think this is a distraction from that which is important.

      You're right Jerami.
      Many people simply want to play games instead of actually having to ponder the things that matter.

          No!  It's serious stuff.  Hard fact to face, but it must be done.

            This is true;   but, how do we function when we know that nothing is as it apears to be ?????

              Oops I gotta answer this.  The only way I know how to.
              We function by being set.  Set in our hearts and minds on the things that WE know to be true.
              As far as the rest, we function by being defensive.  Gotta protect the truth.  My father once said believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.  I think that's wise advice.

                I wonder????   is defensive where we are supposed to be?

                I think assured does not need defending.    Maybe?

      Most choose not to recognize truth, due to ego. (and no it's not implication of you, but a little fact about almost everyone)
      Actually, the threads you mention, I don't know about. However, there is a distraction from which is more important, simply due to distortion and misinformation, from many people who choose not to recognize truth. The ones floundering around making claims, based on their ego and fail to understand their own life, attempt to ensure their own comfortable nature, so they don't have to go out of their way.

        Actually;  everything that you just said could have come from the mouth of a believer.

          Yes it could.
          Doesn't necessarily make or mean it was truth coming from a believer. wink

                  Did you really need all of them? Or are you attempting to insinuate something more from your statement?

      I understand your frustration, but you have to take into account that people tend to argue, even when they do agree.  Sometimes people simply aren't listening to the other side of the conversation.  Call it ego, self absorption or whatever you want.

      Also, what is truth? Yours will never be mine.

      Life is full of distractions. Who wants to be serious all of the time? One of the examples in your OP is somewhat ignorant imo, but the other is a valid question.  But, both are valid questions to the person that posed them. Why do you believe that only the topics of discussion you deem worthy are the ones anyone should talk about?

        Thanks for the other comment,  much apreciated.

          And I agree with all that you said in this post.

          The messages in scripture does have somewhat different  applications (truths) that fit the needs of each of usindividually.

         
        2 Peter 1:20    Knowing this first, that no prophesy of scripture is of any private interpretation.

           Seems to me, this is saying there is but one truth written in prophesy in scripture  AND  YET the churches interpret most of them.

          They start at the end of the story   while working backwards in time, they interpret those scriptures in a way as to conform to their interpretation of the the end of the story.

          I very much agree with you Jeremy, the bible scripture can fit pretty much anything in the way of religious belief, a reality born out by the many sects.

              The words of a wise man; when kept short, can and does ring of truth in many ways to many people.

              I agree. Shame about all the other stuff that is taken as rote.

              There are some beautiful passages in the bible and some good common sense advice as well, that's about as close as I can get to agreeing with the bible. For the most part it is a place to park the shadow aspect of the collective in my opinion. smile

              Which leads back to the most basic fundamental of the human species...rationality vs irrationality. Which form is more dangerous type of thinking?

              Answer? Irrationality. wink

                  Nope.

                  Rationality is good.

                  Irrationality is dangerous(bad).

                    That really isn't a rational conclusion nor is it a bad conclusion. It isn't a bad conclusion because good and bad are not attributes you can assign to the rational without relative content.

                    To be rational means one is consistent with using reason and using their mind which is nothing more than a behavioral process for synthesizing and disseminating information.

                    We can find ample examples in nature and in our lives of the rational being bad and the irrational being good and not dangerous.
