Fundies' god has muscles. It's uber-macho to the max.

One can almost picture it singing YMCA.

So, lets talk facts.

What thread is the largest? Certainly it is not Jesus, Holy Spirit, or God the Father. Think about it. A forum to discuss “Christianity” and it is not the the most written topic? And, Not to mention the thread starts off as an attack against believers who trust the Bible as the inspired Word of God!

What does God through His Word say about homosexuality? We all know the verses. Yet, it is simply ignored or claim misinterpretation.

There is a division and we all know it. But it is not exactly what you think it is.
No, it came from my own heart and knowledge. I don't discuss religion anywhere else on the Internet, so there would be nothing to parrot.

Even above, you just can't get out of the whole prison of "God through his Word said.." thinking. There is a saying, "You can't try to escape from a dungeon if you don't realize you are in one." Just hoping you'll think and that one day your eyes will open.

The reason bible fundamentalists cannot get past the perception of God they hold in their minds to the much broader view of God is their perception of God being a sin hating God, holds them as well as the ones they condemn to be sinners under the same condemnation. They have not understood the good news, the vastness of the love of God and felt the effects of it.

Not that I need people to agree with me...but, it is always nice to see others see the same thing.
This insight does nothing less than to exalt God, this magnificent, eternal Being...praising His actual Divine Nature
of pure love...
not the stories told about Him and all He is blamed for doing and wanting.
My take.


Couldn't rep you again.

college grads and have degrees....and have grown up since 3rd grade Sunday School.

hey, I was atheist by 3rd grade.

the universe made pacaso, calculus, emerson lake and palmer, lincoln, sherman, lee, washington. the universe also created the anti-those. Gravity is the only thing so far without an anti particle, it doesn't fit the standard model. lmao, but its here.

yes, some of us don't like christianity because of how christians behave. Me? I am not a christian simply because there is no way a dude died, woke up, and flew away for our sins. I mean in third grade i saw it.

I am against people that are hide personal emotionally based agenda's behind nobel causes. I don't much care what they believe. I am only an atheist. I do not make any choices based on a god. More precisely, I don't make any choices based on a statement of belief about god. or how I feel about christianity.

NO I agree with your general statement. except for where start accusing christians.
what part I disagree with you is that God still hates sin in us.. but Jesus the man died for it.. it is father's plan to bring us back into the knowledge and right standing with God our Father.. and yes it was a glorious gift..
Now that means we must still try remain humble and thankful and repentant when we sin or realize how we sinned and burdened man or God and do the best we can to submit ourselves to His Spirit to change our hearts , so that we are not an offense to God while we learn of him by trail and errors .
and some day there is a water that will wash us clean of all our sins and falling shorts.
in the mean time we need the Lord and his wWords to wash our minds with both his wWords . and the living words which is His church walking our his wWords!


Eph 5:24

Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Eph 5:25


Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27

That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies( as Jesus did and does now ). He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29

For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.( we are all his church/his wife)

Eph 5:31

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Eph 5:32

This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

the goal has never been lowered .. the way to walk in it has been provided and supplied By Him !
