yeah, that kind of thinking is frowned on in here. don't think, just bash the other side. they think that denying everything removes the springboard, even if it is the springboard to more valid beliefs.

You're getting monotonous. Many of us don't have any problem with individuals being religionists, providing they keep it to themselves.

I don't care which "camp" you're talking about, or both. I judge a person based on their actions and their words.

all I need to know is where my post was directed at you?

or why you would feel the need to so vigorously defend yourself something that wasn't directed at you?

You're on a forum. Posts are "directed" to everyone. If not, message them privately.

No, it isn't free at all. It has to be paid for - and the payment is that you abandon logic, reason and common sense, that you forego verifiable evidence and instead, rely on 'faith'.

Should I commit all so called "sins" to get ahead in life? Because all the great men mostly did. T
That's because all men are sinners and fall short of the glory of God - but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus
