I have nothing against you or your religion....or for any religion for that matter. You can find very devout, kind, generous and good people in any religion but you can also find very evil, greedy and untrustworthy people in them too. I personally don't care what religion anyone follows, how moral ones religion is, how spiritual ones religion is, how truthful ones religion is provided you keep that between you and your religion. When followers of a religion or religious dogma try to infect my life with their beliefs...that is when we will run into problems. Religion and religious dogma breeds intolerance towards anyone who doesn't think exactly as they do and has for eons. It would take a tome 10,000 pages long to elaborate on that....which is something I have no desire to attempt but you already know exactly what I'm talking about. Just take a look into the world we live in, you'd have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to see it. I no longer choose to live a life with religious blinders on anymore and that is my right, just as it is your right to keep your on.
A 12 year journey?...you were just religious about a month ago...you can't shine me on...I know where you got your info from, the same sources i got mine from...i recognize the wording...

well I would say religionanity instead of christianity as christianity does not use threats of death, or execution but many a religion that is suppose to be based on christianity does.

Which just goes to prove my point of how people who see a God who can create both good and evil.

If people beleive God can do evil, it helps justify themselves when they do evil.

We truely are what we eat

And we all know what Adam ate

I am glad you posted that scripture because I have always said that if [some] Christians TRULY believed their bible, they would STOP trying to re-convert those who have left the faith. Doesn't the bible say it is IMPOSSIBLE to do so?
Yup...i don't even try...good luck to you all...

Oh, yes, that I know. I talk about it enough.

Just, how the heck did it get built on a carpenter who talked about love? The Bible has been mishandled, misused, and outright mistranslated to beat down the masses. The theme throughout that Bible, if you know what you are looking for, is LOVE. I KNOW! Hard to believe!

I happen to believe in the Restoration of All Things. I came back from a LONG and difficult trek through the world and it's loveless systems. I was ANGRY for a very long time. And, sometimes I still am. It can be very difficult to get to the core of who God is when you are steeped in thousands of years of religion and wars. But, the alternative (Marxism and such) is not any prettier. Trust me.

I believe Jesus when he said, "My kingdom is not of this world, THEN would my people fight. (The LAST thing he wanted was physical WAR!! The Catholic church and her daughters have MUCH to answer for!)

Do you not believe what god has written in his inspired and inerrant bible????
you'd be surprised how much the bible and archeology agree with one another...

Totally different view is it not?

Which view do you beleive Jesus saw the Father through?
H1254
בּרא
bârâ'
baw-raw'
A primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes): - choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat).

you seem to be like other people, only giving half or part of a word meaning...in order to confuse...

Jesus was a myth...like all of the other myths of that time....so my answer to that would be Jesus saw NOTHING because imaginary beings cannot see.
Do you know for a fact He was a myth?...Why don't you read what the Jews said about Jesus, i mean the secular account of Him...they said He was a troublemaker...why would the Jews even bother writing about a myth in the real secular sense that they did?...Obviously He actually existed, they did not believe in Him and tried to eradicate Him...look it up...it is in their own secular accounts of Him...like i said....i pretty much read everything on this...from every angle...

Pneuma and I are both believers in the Restitution of All Things. We are certainly acquainted with the Crusades, etc.
