    You disagree, too, with what you said? I don't get it...

    "Unless you pick up your cross and follow, you cannot be my disciple." Luke 14;25ff
    "Are you able to drink the cup I drink?" Matt. 20:22

    Grace is free, but there is a cost to discipleship.

    We have to give up our lives in order to embark on the journey of discovery. We have to seek before we can find.

    Why make it about me and what I call religion?
    What others claim is more than enough.

    As for "not always", that is a marvy understatement.

    People with religion have it figured out.

    May we assume that you most humbly figure you
    are one of the few with true religion and have figured
    it out?

    Perhaps you’d be so kind as to explain how you can both agree and disagree with something you wrote (seeing as how you have a greater intellect than I)?

    I would rather leave you confused about this, which you seem to be on other things as well.

    Why animals don't have their own countries similar to humans?
    Why humans care and animals don't? can you explain?

    That which is born of the spirit, IS spirit. I am not spirit and you are not spirit. Neither of us is born of the spirit. And if you are not "born" you canot be a chil. We are not yet children of God. But that potential is there. We can hope to someday be born and join God's family.

    Because God gave humans spirits so they can become part of His family. Animals do not have spirits.

    Never mind. I’m not here to play Romper Room mind games. You were probably the kind of kid who would tie fireworks to a cat’s tail, just to mess with it.

    We are all born with God’s spirit within us. Genesis says so.

    But it doesn't exist so how can something non existent be of any help? Unless maybe you're referring to metaphorical truth

    Yeah that seems to be the case.

    Huh? What do you mean?

    Why isn't the universe overpopulated with sentient beings then and why are there seemingly non sentient beings that exist?

    Why couldn't it be the case that their ultimate purpose is just showing off their creative power through creating the universe while not giving a crap about sentient beings?

    God doesn't care about them at all, as they are God and his angele admits the rubel.

    A wonderful world in your opinion, someone could argue the opposite.

    It looks like people teach themselves.
