Over the years I’ve heard a number of religious personalities from different so called Christian religions say that God loves everyone, He loves people no matter what. The last time I heard that was very recently.
I understand that from the perspective of people who don’t like to obey anything except their own whims it must be cool to belong to that kind of religion. The ideology of “do whatever you feel like and God will love you anyway” makes things easier, doesn’t it?
But from a...
I was praying really hard that the Vikings would win today, all I can say now is "my God my God why have you forsaken me."
I prayed that God would guide all of their plays and curse Philadelphia Eagles to throw interceptions and make stupid plays.
I was hoping the forces of heaven would bless the Vikings and the forces of hell would curse the eagles. I even prayed to woden, Thor, frigg, freyja, and for the Viking gods and goddesses and spirits of deceased Vikings to all help our team....
With most of Christianity following the Pharisees John, Paul and Simon the stone (petros), which contradict Yeshua within the Synoptic Gospels.
Muslims are meant to be following the Quran, and yet many ignoring the Psalms, Prophets and Synoptic Gospels which it told us to accept.
Baha'i creating an alternate Messiah figure who didn't even noticed the false texts or prophet statements warning about it.
Many Jews thinking the whole thing is a joke; yet miss that the joke is on them...
I have heard so many times from atheists, agnostics, etc.. that religion is a natural part of human evolution and we will evolve out of thinking there is a God or dogma.
There is no way to prove that statement.
With ancient tribes why would the name God, or any name for a Creator be mentioned?
I've heard people say it'd be natural to say someone made it, but why would they just think that?
Is it on a whim?
"Oh, I am here.. someone made here."
not a natural thought.
1. I believe in evolution and I believe the earth is billions of years old. This is what I was taught and the
evidence is overwhelming to accept it.
2. I also believe the 7 day creation story from Genesis. It’s a beautiful story filled with incredible information.
My mind’s understanding of these things is in harmonious peace.
Does anyone else feel the same?
If not, do you think you could get there?
I am wondering: for those of you who are religious and believe in the legitimacy of religious/spiritual experiences and/or revelations, how do you determine which experiences are legitimate and which are delusions or hallucinations? Presumably you do not believe that *all* spiritual experiences are real in the sense that they are experiences that reflect reality or have any bearing on what is objectively true. In fact, in my experience, the majority of religious people dismiss MOST of...
atheism teaches us to see things as they are and not as we want them to be. atheism is the greatest tool when we want to examine facts apart from imagination. we all should have an atheistic mind to some degree, because it might help us to see things from a different point of view other than a religious one. maybe atheism will help us understand religions better.
From a high of about 48% of the US population in 1993 to a low of 31% in 2917.
Just to be clear, "born again" refers a person who has "confessed their personal sin, asked Jesus Christ to save them, and believes they will live eternally in Heaven only because of His grace toward them."
According to the linked article, the trend isn't likely to reverse itself in the near future.
"As older Americans pass away, the population proportion of younger adults will increase, continuing to drive...
"Pope Francis accused victims of Chile’s most notorious pedophile of slander, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.
Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadimas, such accusations against Barros are “all calumny.”
The pope’s remarks on Thursday (Jan. 18) drew shock from Chileans and...
