I don't like religion, plain and simple. My God is an aspect of me, I don't need a religion to acknowledge it.
Who thought you were an Athiest? God is an aspect of you and in you. You don't have to agree with organized religions to believe, but remember we are not a God or Gods we are human beings with heart and souls. Well if you believe it.
Hello, AEvans! The OP originally mistakenly interpreted a post I made in another thread to mean that I thought he was an atheist.
If I'm preaching anything, it's to be aware of the self, in all ways, including the way one may be percieved and to control every aspect, regarding one's own attitude and social condition.
You seriously started a new thread for this?
I'm starting to think you just like to hear yourself talk.
And what are christians doing, when they write long winded unoriginal regurgitations? Preaching is one thing, calling you out is another. I am not attacking anyone on any personal level, that's where the judgements come and their mostly coming from christians. I get the occasional Islamist but for the most part, it's pioused, right wing, evangelicals and southern baptists. I should know, I used to be just like that. Slinging judgements left and right, even though Jesus said not to. I understand the teaching, it's the religion that is flawed and it's the people that make the problem.
Calling ME out? Um, sorry no. I am not pious, right wing, evangelical, nor am I southern baptist. You're not addressing me in any of these posts. You're simply stirring arguments for the sake of sounding oh-so-enlightened. It's getting really old.
From what angle are coming at me from? You didn't have to read the thread or answer to it, that's all you. So who is attacking whom? What motivates you to go on the offensive? I'm curious... Do you think you "know" something that I don't?
I don't believe I indicated that I felt attacked. I often read threads of yours and there is very little openness to discussion. You simply want to hate religion. I find it tedious.
And, the whole...you don't have to read the thread nonsense is nothing but a way to try to shove someone off when they don't agree with you.
I apologize if you felt attacked. I simply feel that you are wrong, and that your very flimsy OP in the other thread could easily be turned back on you by anyone who has any opinion either for or against God or religion.
I talk to others about these things because I like to. It keeps me honest and if you'll notice, I include myself in everyone of my threads. I point out my own mistakes and my own humanity. It's one thing to read the thread, it's another to understand it.
Ah, then perhaps because I disagree with you, I am neither intelligent nor enlightened enough to "understand" your threads. I tend to think that you speak in circles and carry a hateful attitude towards anyone who espouses any sort of faith in a power outside of "self." I also notice that your insults are not nearly as clever or subtle as you believe them to be.
"Just because I don't follow religion", means I am a Pagan.

I've been supportive of Christians for the most part. Probably because of the respect I hold for the ministry of Jesus and the goodness I believe is the heart of the universe.I've lost the ability to support you guys. The lies and innuendo, the games many play circumventing the truth, the total...

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?

What are the most annoying responses Christians give to questions atheists ask?I'm a christian and I think that it would be helpful in ministry, if Christians new a bit more about how atheists felt about a Christian's rebuttal

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

Why are some Christians threatened by Atheists?Atheists are not a particularly large or unified group, so why is there this impression (in religious media and discussion groups) that atheists are a threat? Usually it comes in the form of questions like "why are atheists so mean?" or...

Why can't atheists and believers leave each other alone to not believe or believe?Why is it that atheists (not all, some) continuously question believers about their belief and vice versa; why do believers (not all, some) feel they have to justify their belief? Surely if you don't believe in God...
