You people need to chill. So I offer another brief musical interlude.

As as you say Beeswax, it's for such suggested beliefs, requirements like those, that I have no interest in observing my own religion.
So... you think that Free Will is a requirement that is a bridge too far? Well ok then. You can opt for the other thesis: we are wholly determined in what we think and do. Try fitting that theory into real life. Rape, Murder, Robbery, Genecide...all non mea culpa
The fact is, uncomfortable though it may be to be faced with, is that turning away from God is a manifest act of Pride in Selfishness. Religious duty is just too hard for most people in this world. I pray they wake up before they meet their sentence.

beeswax wrote:Their God seems to want to send non believers and believers of other faiths to eternal hell for doing nothing wrong other than NOT believing in Jesus as God and thought crime. The act of 'pride' is reserved for those that think as they do surely? Its why they believe in a false God. Its not MY idea of a loving and just God anyhow.
beeswax wrote:The second very obvious point is that most people are not Christians and don't need 'religion' to live out their lives and what is difficult about religious 'duty' anyhow. To me its not difficult at all. Its actually easier to believe than not to believe in fairy tales and all the ritualistic nonsense that religion embraces as part of its 'belief' system.

So, here is another song, from my home state and basically sums me up...sort of.
I hear the music of the Florida redneck.....
I am a person of faith, but truly, I am not that dangerous.
beeswax wrote:Hi RR,
You said the 'script' says that all will be judged etc..
I'm saying your 'script' is not true and so how are you to convince others on that point?
beeswax wrote:The Rabbi once told a Christian who tried to convert him that how could a loving compassionate God send 6 million Jews who experienced hell in the holocaust and send these same men, women and children to another hell, not just for a lifetime but for all eternity?
beeswax wrote:You see my friend, none of this is reasonable, nor logical and certainly not loving nor just and why it cannot be true and its time it was stopped being peddled as some kind of revelation from God...Are you prepared to accept its nonsense?
beeswax wrote: Faith is indeed a belief in things unknown and unseen but we don't need scripture OR faith to know what is true and what is false. We have come of age compared with biblical times and we should embrace truth when we see it...
