Okay im tired of people reading that first post then instantly judging and hating me.

I'll try to be clear here:

-"hate" was probably the wrong word. I have no respect for devout Christians.

-In case you don't know, definition of devout: 'Having or showing deep religious feeling or commitment'. The people who have read the bible cover to cover, memorize lines, etc.

-And for the other "Christians", the ones who base their beliefs on a few lines from the bible and disregard all the other bullshit: I don't even consider you Christians. Form your own worldviews and make up your own morals. Doing whats right isn't exclusively Christian.

-Call me a bigot all you want, give me a reasonable explanation as to why God wants to kill billions of people. I'm always open to ideas.

-I usually try to stay quiet about religion, its just really hard sometimes, especially with my personality. I know I'm not about to change anyone's beliefs over a forum, and that wasn't what i was trying to do. I just wanted to hear non-American views about the major religions of their country.

-I'm sarcastic ALOT. Don't take everything I say so seriously. No sarcasm above, but I can't say what will happen in future posts.

I think there was something else i was going to say but i forget

Am I any better in what way? Do I actively dislike or speak out against an entire group of people? No, I most certainly do not. I dislike and speak out against individuals, yes... but I do so with knowledge of those people and not based on poorly constructed perceptions.

If you can't understand why disrespecting an entire group of people, 90% of which you have not met, is bigotry at its core then no, I am not going to explain why. It should be self evident.

KGB, that is acceptable assuming you have witnessed their hypocrisy in some form. That is not speaking out against an entire group, merely select individuals who you find distasteful for legitimate reasons. There is a key difference in those two things.

I understand exactly what you're saying, you're just misusing words and being very naive.

Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

intolerant: unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters.

Personally I find devout *insert religious connotation here* highly annoying, often intrusive, and often devout only to the parts of their religious connotation that best suits them..
However, I have no strong opinions on anyone based on their religious belief, be it it mine, or contrary, -*save for when those people attempt to force their belief's on me*-.

Personally, I don't understand the need or desire to bring a touchy subject like religion, politics, etc. to a site which is based on trying to enjoy yourself /*gaming site*/ there are places for theological and political debates.. if someone feels strongly enough to spread their side, they -should- go there.. most of us seek only to defend our belief's, if that..

I am Agnostic... and because I have seen no proof or logical reasoning as of yet -*in my eyes of course*- that makes me believe any religion is more right then another, or that any religion shows the signs of being written by the ghost writer of an omniscient, I am currently Atheist, waiting to be proven wrong.

KGB, I have met very intelligent people that *hate* all of a given race/religion before... Intellect has limited value when an emotion eclipses it..

Call me a christian all you want, give me a good reason why I shouldn't believe in god.
If you really wanted to know other countries feels you would of come at this unbiased and neutral.. So I don't believe that for a second or you got no common sense.

Apple, it's impossible to prove something doesn't exist... it's easy to prove something does exist..

personally, I believe that which is easiest to disprove...
Example
I say there are wal-mart ninja's.. they hide in the rafters and sulk about the inventory rooms... There is no way for you to prove that they aren't there, but I can easily prove that they are there by capturing one of them, preferably while the naysayers are observing...


You cannot prove god does not exist.. But since his books, old and new both, are combed with miracles, it should be veritably simple to prove that he does exist, thus Imho belief should be put in the non-existence until evidence is provided..

Naturally those thoughts stem from my Agnosticism... I cannot fathom having belief's based on Gnosticism...


The same logic can be applied to many possibly fictitious identities, and everyone should be able to gather my belief's on them following it.

Jaysus, can the religious discussions please just stop? Nobody is going to convince anyone of anything. Look at the previous thread, 4 pages in like a day. I know I am prone to going off topic on the forums repeatedly, but I do enjoy the fact that most forum discussions are at least somewhat game-related.

So, reading a book makes a person devout?

"-In case you don't know, definition of devout: 'Having or showing deep religious feeling or commitment'. The people who have read the bible cover to cover, memorize lines, etc."

I've read thousands of books, and trust me, reading a book doesn't make you devout.

If god has a message that is so important that he needs me to know it, he should tell me himself about it. Since he hasnt spoken to me yet, i am an unbeliever.
The manipulative catholic church has pierced their controlpropaganda on to people for so many centuries, that its hard for most people to think free on their own again.
And it will stick to mankind for another many centuries, until we are able to move on and change our society to be based on reason and not on hypocrisy. But as long as oligarchy and plutocracy prevail on earth, religion will find its place, since people are so easy controlable through it.

myhandisonfire, I speak to you: *For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.* (Matthew 18:20) Before I said these words, as recorded by my disciple Matthew, a wise man from the state of Lu spoke of a similar concept: human-heartedness, whose symbol 仁 is also *two* and *people*.

If the Father spoke to you directly, you would be a prophet to fulfill what I, the Son, have left unfulfilled. *For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.* (Amos 3:7) A new holy book would be written to form a trilogy: Old Testament (God's covenant with Israel), New Testament (Christ the Savior), Newest Testament (myhandisonfire the Prophet).

The account named Jesus does not blesphemy Jesus.
Perrin, you clearly misunderstood the command in Deutoromy. God is not condemning you if you make an image in the form of anything in the heavens above, the earth below, or the waters beneath. He condemns you if you make an image and corupt yourself with image.

The account Jesus did not corupt himself, nor corupt God, for everything he posted so far is correct and accurate(based on the bible), exactly as Jesus himself would have said. If the account Jesus said, "murder and you will live", then that blesphemies the name of the Lord, for he has lied using the name of Jesus.

@Myhandisonfire, the Catholic church had did many wrongs (much in which they had admitted and apologized, many others are forgotten) because they are an organization formed by people. People according to God, are all sinners, thus it's only natural that they will sin. Christians are no different. You should judge Religion not based on its believers, but the religion's teachings. It's true God did not directly contact you to give you any messages, but clearly you are not willing to listen. If God knows all, then he won't give you the message, because he knows you are not willing to listen to it.
