If Yeshua according to the Tanakh is physically David with the spirit of the Lord (YHVH) upon him, and the Jews don't accept the fulfillment of these prophecies, they virtually no longer accept the Messiah, David, Salvation (Yeshua), and YHVH.
Now we could say the Jews are still determined that they should only worship the God Most High (El Elyon); which is a good statement to make.... The only issue with this is the Most High has no image, and YHVH Elohim appears multiple times in human...
This universe was never meant to be. If you think about it, it makes no sense for there to be anything at all. As a matter of fact, it would make no sense to say that there was a God who existed and created this universe. Therefore, this universe existing is all lies. None of it is real. Everything should be complete nothingness. The fact that things do exist (including a God) simply means that it is an act and is all fake. None of it actually exists.
From the looks of things in previous threads I am missing out on something but not having had a religious/spiritual experience in my life. At least none that I would qualify as real or as grand as others have claimed to have had.
So what does one do to have a religious experience? Is there a ritual involved? maybe random chance? Is there a formula someone can try out? Perhaps some pagan or hindu can set me right? What of the Christians? In all honesty i'll try any bit of advice provided it...
Worship of the Greek gods has for the first time been legally recognised by the Ministry of Education and Religious Matters as a 'known religion'. Apparently this is literally all that is required for a faith group to be granted full legal rights & protections.
This recognition has come with the bonus of being granted permission to construct a place of worship in Athens. Hopefully Athena will soon be worshipped publicly in her city for the first time in two millennia! Religions in Greece...
All across the bible, God and his messengers use fear and threats to force Gods ways on unbelieving people.
It was even so that God threatened Moses himself that if people will follow God's words they will not be harmed as God harmed Egypt.
This clearly suggests that the people of that time, who invented God, were "forced" to use scare tactics in order to "win" peoples minds.
How is it that all modern religions today, fail and "neglect" this fact with the excuse that this was not what God...
Lets pretend all religions are equally possibly correct. If one goes by nothing but the numbers the chance of you being correct are 1 in 19 if you count the large religions of the world . From there if you add in religious sects and dead religions the chance goes down even lower.
So how do you figure which religion is the correct one if there is indeed a correct one?
I've seen people approach this issue in two different ways, one is simply that you feel a connection to a certain belief...
I've long said that everyone believes in a little woo, even us staunch rationalists.
There's a tag line at the bottom of my signature. It makes a statement about people's propensity to have faith in things that many would otherwise find ridiculous. What I'd like to do (if it doesn't erupt into a flame war) is compile a list of beliefs among all of us, atheist and theist alike, of all the things we believe in that are rather absurd, both personally and religiously.
It's easier said than...
Are all aspects of the trinity equal?
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
You have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
From then till now, we can see there're a quantity amounts of people from some religions who tries to establish their religions' theocracy on Earth/countries.
If we have the technologies to let us safely live on other planets...
A quantity amounts of people who support freedom of religion and freedom from religion move to other planets so they can live on a planet free from any religions' theocracy.
If you're a person who want to convert every people on the Earth to your religion and...
