yo! soooo umm I know this is really random, but what are some good verus for like hope and paitence? idk it's a long story but i'm way stressed and I know you usually have some pretty insightful ideas......thanks!

"Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." - James 1:12

"but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ." - II Corinthians 1:3-5

"For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." - Romans 15:4

"And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you." - I Peter 5:10

Naw this is great! Thanks so much!
User avatar #556 to #555 - jokeface (06/14/2014) [-]

Well my bf went to jail yesterday and I'm really bummed out about it......I waited for him while he was in prison for a long time and he's only out for r a moth then this happened......now idk wat will happen w/ him or us
User avatar #558 to #557 - jokeface (06/14/2014) [-]
Damn. That's rough. I'm sorry that happened, and I'll certainly pray for both of you. You know, it's my firm belief that God doesn't allow bad things to happen in the world without opening doors for good things to come from them. It's definite;y distressing that this happened, but at the same time, think of it as an opportunity to grow in your strength and faithfulness. When you put your trust in Christ, He provides comfort, and He will stand by you in times of great pain. And the pain will pass. It, like everything else on Earth, is finite. But the love and grace of God is eternal. Let Him guide you through this trial, and I guarantee you'll come out stronger on the other side.
User avatar #559 to #558 - justsomechickyo (06/14/2014) [-]
Thank you so much! Ya I know it will pass and I'm trying to stay strong but it's tough......I should really be focused on myself right now anyways.....I'm trying to get sober and that's enough of a challenge in itself. I know God is here for me and I will get through this all w/ him by my side

Do you know any good theist youtubers?
User avatar #561 to #550 - jokeface (07/17/2014) [-]
Update: I've been on Youtube a lot more than I used to be and I know a few more of the big names on there now. John Green is one of my favorites, and he's a Christian. But he's very soft-spoken about it and keeps his videos very impartial. Here's one of the only videos where he talks about religion:

I met this born again rapper at college, he's not a bad rapper, although he rejects reason in favour of faith by his own volition.
soundcloud.com/panterforever
User avatar #565 to #563 - jokeface (07/19/2014) [-]
What sort of reason does he reject?
User avatar #567 to #565 - thebritishguy (07/19/2014) [-]
Just the principles in philosophy like logic, he says that if people study philosophy, science and reason then they will turn away from God. So you must fear reason and logic as God is illogical and unreasonable. It's strange how much I agreed with him. I was dumbfounded.
User avatar #569 to #567 - jokeface (07/19/2014) [-]
Yea see, that's where I draw the line. I don't believe that reason and faith automatically have to oppose each other. I believe that sometimes they do, but I don't think it's always the case. As I've said before, most science I find very reliable and even necessary to human existence. Without science we wouldn't have most medicines and technology that allows us to live our everyday lives. The Christians who reject all science give us a bad name. They don't realize that they are the product of science. Maybe not physiologically, but psychologically, they grew up in a world that was shaped by it. They depend on it even without realizing it.
User avatar #570 to #569 - thebritishguy (07/19/2014) [-]
I just held up my phone and said
"This was built on the basis of scientific principles and theories, if science has no value and is innacurate, if the theories are just guesses and the scientists were deluded, it should not work"
Then I turned it on, at that point though he just caved in and said he was not interested in debating and whatever I say will not change his mind, so there was no point in it.

I think it's because a lot of people think it is either science or God when this is of course not the case. I consider faith to be apart from reason though because it is elementary that what can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
User avatar #571 to #570 - jokeface (07/19/2014) [-]
And you have every right to feel that way. I completely understand that mindset.
User avatar #562 to #561 - thebritishguy (07/18/2014) [-]
He's incredibly vague, he never really answered the question
User avatar #564 to #562 - jokeface (07/19/2014) [-]
Agreed, but he does that intentionally. As he said, the way people handle religion on the internet is very sloppy, and my guess is he feels that if he expressed his religious views outwardly, he would appear narrow-minded and bigoted, and he is very much NOT that. In fact, I've only ever heard him admit to being a Christian once, maybe twice, in all of his videos that I've seen. He doesn't ever say anything preachy, ever, and he doesn't let his faith define his character. So really, it wouldn't matter what his beliefs were, he'd still be the same person.
User avatar #566 to #564 - thebritishguy (07/19/2014) [-]
I'll check out more of his videos tommorow. It doesn't seem like he is taking a cut throat rationalist aproach though but more of an emotional appeal.
User avatar #568 to #566 - jokeface (07/19/2014) [-]
That's what I thought too, and I don't like when people do that, but I understand why they do it. And considering that so many of his videos are educational, and the fact that he and his brother also host a second channel specifically for academic learning (called CrashCourse in case you're interested), it makes sense that he's trying to reach as many people as possible, and quite frankly, he doesn't actually need to have a particular religious stance in order to be that kind of YouTuber.
User avatar #551 to #550 - jokeface (02/03/2014) [-]
I don't really know any Youtubers, let alone theist ones. The only one I really like is TomSka, and I don't know what he believes.
User avatar #548 - thebritishguy (01/04/2014) [-]
I don't know what this means
"'He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come" (Matthew 12:22-32).

So what actually is this unforgivable sin please?
#546 - snood (12/20/2013) [-]
Hey i just read a lot of your comments about Christianity. You're one of the good ones on here, at least from what i saw. Keep it up.

Thank you. I try to be good.

What do you think about Zimmerman? I think he was innocent, he just pulled a family out of a burning SUV!
User avatar #542 to #541 - jokeface (07/22/2013) [-]
I have mixed feelings about Zimmerman. On the one hand I don't support killing people, even in self defense. But on the other hand, I believe his testimony and understand why he shot the kid. If it had been me, and I was being attacked, I might have shot him, but not fatally. I would have tried to shoot his leg or something to just injure him so that I could gain control of the situation. But ultimately, from a legal standpoint and not a religious one, I consider him innocent.
#543 to #542 - thebritishguy (07/23/2013) [-]
From what the evidence shows I would have shot him but many people doubt the evidence. The way the media portrayed him was really silly I thought, he had several reasons why he was suspicious of Trayvon, it was raining and he was wandering around leisurely staring at houses, there were recent break ins in the area and the particular house Treyvon was looking at had been left unlocked on previous occasions. Yet the media insists that race is the sole reason Zimmerman not only was suspicious of Trayvon, but even why he shot him.
User avatar #544 to #543 - jokeface (07/23/2013) [-]
Yea I really don't think race had anything to do with it.

what do you think about atheist church's? there's one in England they just give science lectures, sing pop songs and comedians come on. I'd love to go
User avatar #503 to #502 - jokeface (03/24/2013) [-]
Sounds awesome. Of course, I wouldn't agree with them denouncing the belief in God, but other than that it sounds like it'd be fun. Why do they call it a church though?
User avatar #504 to #503 - thebritishguy (03/24/2013) [-]
I think it is just that there aren't really any other names for that sort of thing
The word church originally just meant a meeting place but I get what you mean

She was supposed to come up a few weeks ago but she never did. And I finally got fed up with not being able to see her, and so I put our relationship on hold until she comes up here. I'd go down to see her myself but I live on my own now and have a bunch of expenses that prevent me from being able to.

User avatar #483 to #482 - jingleforth (03/18/2013) [-]
Yes they do, but I've told you. If north korea attacks us, they lose support, and if such an event happened. They'd turn into a nuclear crater.

#475 to #474 - thebritishguy (03/17/2013) [-]
uuum like scared that world war 3 will begin or the civilians of North Korea will be nuked like Hiroshima , they have connections with Russia and China and have the fourth biggest military, Kim Jong Un told his troops to prepare for war and they always do nuclear weapon testing. On the other hand South Korea thinks they are just trying to get attention and trying to look big.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. - Matthew 24:6-7

I'm a little nervous of how it might affect people on a personal level, yes. But I know it's coming and I've accepted that fact, because as Jesus said, the end is not yet.

I find all Christians laughable on an equal level.

However, evolutionary theists have a special place in my colon.
User avatar #491 to #490 - jokeface (03/18/2013) [-]
And why is that?
User avatar #492 to #491 - jingleforth (03/18/2013) [-]
They're naturally trained to bullshit their way through an argument.

No matter what you say, it somehow fits in with science, or it's metaphorical, just...something to at the very least neutralize the argument given to them.
User avatar #477 to #476 - thebritishguy (03/17/2013) [-]
hmmm this supports my psycho analysis of the God delusion.
"When people make decisions they use their Ego to decide what to do, the ego is where morality comes from and is sometimes called the "soul" according to Frued. When people base their morality and decisions based on what they think a God says the God becomes the ego. This is supported by the fact people ignore/highlight certain verses and lessons if they agree/disagree with them rather than getting a true perspective of the characters to keep the character as their ego rather than having to separate God from ego. It is also supported by people using words like "reject" and why religious people are so protective of their Gods and are personally insulted when people criticise their Gods. Also the emotions they feel when some theists talk to atheists are similar to those of rejection, when an atheist doesn't believe in God they are not rejecting the proposed God and yet they use that word, it seems to me that they use the word reject because they feel they are being rejected"
User avatar #478 to #477 - jokeface (03/18/2013) [-]
Quite insightful. However allow me to make a few counterarguments.

From the perspective of someone who believes God exists as described in the Bible, consider that such a being would indeed have dominion over morality and, yes, even the ego of those who choose to submit to Him. That being said, can you really blame us for it?

As for your point about verses, understand that I don't ignore any of the Bible. At most, I don't apply the laws that Jesus and Paul said are no longer relevant. It's like studying slavery. We don't have slaves anymore, but that doesn't stop us from learning about the slavery that existed years and years ago. In the same way, some parts of the Bible, such as Mosaic Law, are now obsolete, but that doesn't stop us from learning about it.

Lastly, I don't think that's entirely why theists react the way they do to atheists. Because that would imply that theists view atheists as the "popular kids" and they feel excluded from them. Such is not the case. I mean, that might be said for some people, but speaking for myself and many others, being a theist among atheists is more like being in a special club with amazing benefits, and you can invite as many people as you want, but nobody else wants to join. And it hurts, yes, but not because we feel rejected; Rather, we're simply disappointed that no one else wants to share in our joy.
#481 to #478 - thebritishguy (03/18/2013) [-]
so then why would God make the morality so different? all of our morals are different and change over time, if I was born in the 60's I would probably have different morals than I do now, if I was born in Afghanistan I would have different morals, therefore morality must be something we learn to an extent (we all share common morals like murder, lying and stealing is wrong) rather than God given and also this would intrude on free will. When you think of God I'm sure you don't think about when he ordered the deaths of millions of people or the time he sent bears to kill children for making fun of a bald guy but you pay attention to all the nice verses or like how you ignore the part in the bible were Jesus said to give away all your money or that for some odd reason God dislikes ordinary things that you probably do every day.
I'm not implying theists desperately want atheists to like them I'm saying that when I say "God is a dictator" people start saying I personally attacked them when I didn't
User avatar #488 to #481 - jokeface (03/18/2013) [-]
What you say about common morals is true, and those are the ones which I believe God instills in us. But it's not an intrusion on free will because the morality God gives us is just instinct, and we have the freedom to either give in or resist that instinct. And I do think about everything in the Bible (or at least, everything I can remember, since I haven't been able to memorize all of it). I know God did some crazy shit in the past, but that doesn't take away from the importance of His words now. We don't ignore any of it. Or at least, the Christians I know don't ignore any of it. I'm sure there are some who do but I don't condone it. God gave us the entire Bible so that we could learn from the entire Bible.
User avatar #493 to #488 - thebritishguy (03/18/2013) [-]
I would have thought your morals would have come from the bible as you don't think sex before marriage is good for instance. Well I have never heard about all the horrible and contradictory things in the bible at Sunday school or in church I only heard about the nice (well they cartooned it to make it seem nice) stuff and how God was great. Never heard about the rape, incest, slavery, stoning, homophobia, sexism etc. until I became and atheist. do you know how the bible was written?
User avatar #494 to #493 - jokeface (03/18/2013) [-]
Some of it. I know the first five books (called the Pentateuch) were written by Moses. I don't remember who write the rest of the Old Testament. The Four Gospels were written by their namesakes: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John the Apostle. Acts was written by Luke, and Paul wrote the 21 Epistles. And Revelation was written by John the Apostle. It was completed almost 150 years after Jesus' death (about AD 150).
User avatar #495 to #494 - thebritishguy (03/18/2013) [-]
They are the scriptures. The first Christians needed a book to read to their people so they all met up and have a long conversation about which books to add and which ones to exclude based on what they wanted to teach. The first Christians already burnt a few scriptures which are amusing (there was one were Jesus tamed dragons) but they complied them together and then gave them to really good authors to edit so that they all fit together. there's a documentary on it

It seems Thebritishguy is quite intrusive on your profil, would you consider as him a friend or as more of a rivle?
User avatar #465 to #463 - jokeface (03/15/2013) [-]
He is what I call a "lost one". I feel no enmity toward him, but rather sadness at his adamant stance against the faith. However, he seems intelligent and his debate style is intellectually stimulating, so I imagine he would be fun to talk to about other issues, even if we disagree on those as well.

I am more moral than God, I believe no one deserves to be burnt alive for eternity, slavery is wrong, we should all be treated equal, witches don't...wait witches don't even exist, I'm not homophobic , I am against genocide, I don't demand constant worship, I don't threaten people so they agree with me. Surely you are also more moral than God?
User avatar #532 to #427 - jokeface (03/25/2013) [-]
To say God is anything less than perfect is to say that He doesn't meet the "proper" standards of decency. And if that's the case, then I have to ask, who has set the proper standards? Certainly no human. We're all flawed. So who are we to decide what's right or wrong? God is without flaw because there is no one to set standards for Him. Therefore only He can set standards, and if He is the standard, then anyone who doesn't match Him is wrong. Ergo, He is perfect.
#533 to #532 - thebritishguy (03/25/2013) [-]
God is perfect?

God is above the laws He sets for humanity. He is not bound to follow them, and even so, they can't really be applied to His actions for certain reasons.

Godly wrath is not the same as the sinful wrath, because He has every right to bring judgment upon us. As I said, He's perfect, so his wrath is justified, whereas ours is hypocritical.

The reason He doesn't want us to worship other gods is because He knows they are not real and therefore our worship of them is wasteful, as well as disrespectful to Him, the one true God whom we should be worshiping.

God was never idle, except for on the last day of the week of Creation, and it wasn't because He was tired or lazy, it was because He was setting a model for all of humanity to live by.

People do not hunger because God deprives them, but because we do. As agents of Christ we are called to help our fellow man, and if people starve because we fail to feed them, that's on us, not God. It's one of the duties we accepted when we chose to fall away from Him.

Once again, being perfect, He has every right to advertise Himself as such and demand people to worship. When He condemns humans for being prideful it's because we don't have anything to be proud of by His standards. Maybe by our own, but since we're not the standard, our own self-satisfaction doesn't count as praise-worthy.

God commands us to give to the poor and needy, not to Him. That is not greed.

He is not lustful, either. Lust would mean He gets sexually aroused, which He doesn't. I think whoever made this list just got to lust and couldn't think of anything so they just threw that one in their without much thought.

God never condoned slavery, "witches" in the Bible are referring to people like Wiccans and others who practice magic (that is, magic that is taken seriously, not magic tricks), God doesn't fear anyone or anything so He cannot be homophobic, and frankly it doesn't matter what your personal opinions are because just because you disagree doesn't make you right. God's word is infallible and His doctrines are perfect. No human can ever be more moral than God. Hell, no human can ever be as moral as God.

The bible never says anything about it not being real which is kind of fucking important seeing as millions of innocent people were killed because they were "witches". You know that homophobic doesn't mean scared lol it means you hate gay people. If you think it is perfect then go burn a witch! oh no wait you aren't going to do that you are going to ignore it like all the rest of the bible, if you thought it was perfect you would live by it, you would sell your computer and give the money to charity like Jesus said.

faggot
noun [C usually plural] (WOOD) (US also fagot)

Definition
› sticks of wood, tied together and used as fuel for a fire

hmmm I guess when people say faggot on the internet they are talking about bundles of sticks.
You know as well as I do that homophobes aren't simply terryfied of gay people, it also means if they have contempt towards homosexuals, particularly in this culture.

Obviously it can't be talking about real witches since humans can't do magic unless God gives them powers, and the only people He gave powers to were the Disciples.

And God doesn't hate gay people, He loves everyone.

And we're not ignoring the Bible, in fact, paying closer attention to it is exactly why we don't follow Mosaic Law. Because Jesus and Paul both clarified that it wasn't required after the Crucifixion.
User avatar #433 to #432 - thebritishguy (03/12/2013) [-]
Jesus also said to sell everything and give it to the poor and a rich man can't get into heaven. the question is whether God is a moral person, he said homosexual acts are an abomination and you should kill them. If the writers of the bible didn't believe in witches why the fuck didn't they say they didn't exist and it wasn't real? instead they had loads of rules on witchcraft, it's not like there was a word limit. don't be the interpreter

God didn't adopt the attitudes of men, men adopted the attitudes of God.

And it doesn't matter if God is benevolent or not, because it doesn't change the way the system works. We worship Jesus so we can go to heaven, or else we go to hell. That's a fact, regardless of whether or not God appeals to your personal preferences.

And yes, I know you don't believe in Him anyway, but for the sake of argument, let's say God revealed Himself to everyone, to the point where He could not be denied by anyone, and He confirmed to us that everything in the Bible is an accurate depiction of both Him and the afterlife. Are you going to sit there and tell me that you would accept eternity in hell just because God doesn't base all His decisions around what you think they should be?
User avatar #461 to #458 - thebritishguy (03/13/2013) [-]

I'm sure they did have those attitudes before the Bible was written, but what I'm saying is, the authors that wrote those things in the Bible only wrote them because God told them to. It doesn't matter what their personal feelings were, even if they agreed with them. That wasn't their motive. And if you admit that you would worship God out of blind fear then how can you judge us for doing the same?
User avatar #500 to #462 - thebritishguy (03/24/2013) [-]
I wouldn't say it was blind fear why Christians worship God, but there is barely any evidence for God. What I'm saying is do you think it's a coincidence that a benevolent and just God had the same attitudes as the homophobic slave owners of thousands of years ago? If he is real then those homophobic slave owners were perfect and should carry on fucking slaves. However it is really obvious that it was those people who wrote the book so they could justify having sex and beating their slaves among other things
User avatar #505 to #500 - jokeface (03/24/2013) [-]
God never said we should have slaves, and neither did the Bible. The most we're told about slaves is that if you are a slave, you should be kind and obedient to your master, because violent rebellion would be sinful. That's a commandment for the slave, not the slave owner.
#506 to #505 - thebritishguy (03/24/2013) [-]
just ignore the Old Testament why don't you
When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
I would argue religion is slavery as shown in this picture

Mosaic Law only applied to specific groups of Israelites at the time they were given. They became overruled when Jesus died.

stock·holm syn·drome
Noun
Feelings of trust or affection felt in many cases of kidnapping or hostage-taking by a victim toward a captor.
regardless of whether you follow it or not it is written in the bible and supposedly said by your God, my point still stands. Also the New Testament never says that slavery is wrong it says slaves should be good so it is on the side of the slave masters

Yea, there's a lot of names that make it sound bad, but the fact is that we're perfectly adjusted and functional, so there's nothing wrong with having faith. Submission to God has no negative impacts on a person's life. All it does is ensure our place in heaven after we die.
User avatar #511 to #509 - thebritishguy (03/25/2013) [-]
it had a bad impact on my life, I used to cry because I thought millions of people will be or are burning in hell, I find it quite bizarre that no body else seems to care. I used to feel guilty for doing normal things like fapping. Stockholm syndrome originated when hostages defended their captor. Their reasoning was that he was good because he didn't kill or beat them and they loved him because he didn't abuse them physically, this is very similar to religion.
User avatar #515 to #511 - jokeface (03/25/2013) [-]
I don't know what you mean by "nobody else seems to care." As Christians we care a great deal about the dangers of hell and naturally we aim to save as many people as possible from it. As for fapping, the Bible doesn't actually say anything about it. A lot of people like to reference some quote about it being better for your seed to fall into the belly of a whore than on the ground, but that's never mentioned in the Bible. As for the Stockholm Syndrome, I understand the connection your making, but the difference is that in that situation the kidnapper has done something bad by kidnapping the person. God's done nothing wrong to us. He's only done good and perfect things. He's not a villain, He's a hero.

Why does that make Him a cunt? He's a just God. Everything He does is perfect. All human beings deserve to burn for eternity because we all have wickedness in our hearts. But He has offered us salvation in spite of that, and that makes Him benevolent.

so when I burn alive it is justice? you ass hole! you need to get therapy for your severe Stockholm syndrome.

"There's nothing wrong with faith."

Sure, but it goes against the scientific nature of humans.

Our society exists on the structure of scientific discoveries, which is the exact opposite of faith. Faith is "idunoo lol, but i believe in it" while science takes a more reasonable approach forming extremely good hypothesis', testing them, making sure everything fits right.

I agree with loving your brother and refraining from being a dick, yes. That's something Jesus said was very important. But He said loving Him was just as important, if not more so.

And also, remember that those men were directly inspired by God. He put the words in their hearts and commanded them to write them down. Aside form the outdated Mosaic Law, there weren't really any commandments that lost their relevance. The only one I can think of is the one about women teaching. I researched that one and yes that one was relevant to both the current time period as well as the current place Paul was was speaking to. For reference, I invite you to go to this link:

Jesus told one man to sell everything he had to follow Him. He wasn't saying every human should sell everything they own. And nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to kill homosexuals. All it says is that they shall be put to death. It doesn't say we are the ones who should put them to death. It means God will kill their souls. And we know this is the case because Jesus said not to kill anyone, and killing the gays would contradict this. So death of the spirit is the only possible way to interpret it.
User avatar #435 to #434 - thebritishguy (03/12/2013) [-]
yes, killing the gays contradicts it, there are loads of contradictions in the bible, it says to kill loads of different people, I think we have had this conversation before it never says anything about the soul your just making shit up it also says that their blood shall be upon them but if God was taking their soul there would be no blood. He said a rich man won't enter heaven and he says on a number of occasions to sell your stuff and give to the poor, did you watch the video?
User avatar #437 to #435 - jokeface (03/12/2013) [-]
Okay, I watched it. I'll concede to the thing about selling your possessions, but I still don't think He meant literally. Remember when He went into the temple and got angry at the people who were buying and selling there, and He started flipping tables and shit? I think if He really wanted us to literally sell all our possessions, then He would be flipping tables every place He went. He'd always be scrutinizing people for owning things. No, what I think He means is to not let the possessions become more important than your loyalty to Him. That is, don't sell them from your ownership, but rather sell them from your heart. Let go of them spiritually, so that they don't prevent you from following Him.

The other part of the video I'll address is the thing about abolishing the old laws. Let me break it down for you:

Jesus said "I have not come to abolish [the old laws] but to fulfill them." What He means is that His arrival on Earth does not cancel or nullify the laws. They're still in place even though He has arrived, and because he is the Son of God, only He can fulfill them, because man is imperfect and can never fulfill the law. However, He goes on to say that nothing about the laws will change "until all is accomplished." What do you think He's referring to? I'll give you a hint: What did He come to Earth to do besides fulfill the law? He came to die. And right before He breathed His last breath, His last words were: "It is finished." That was it. That was Him declaring that the old law was obsolete and the new law would begin.

Then later in Galatians, the Apostle Paul write about how violation of the law no longer condemns us because Christ died to sanctify us in spite of sin: "[We] know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified...I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"

Buddhism is an admirable philosophy but it deceives you about the afterlife and the true God.

Okay, let's see...He doesn't verbally abuse us...doesn't control our money...doesn't isolate us...He's never been cruel to anyone...so we can rule out "Controlling" as a characteristic. I'd say He's more influential, seeing as His teachings and requisites can certainly impact people, though He doesn't force them on anyone.

He does have special rights but He sure as hell earned them by saving us. Nothing He demands are unreasonable and in fact we're getting much more than we deserve out of the deal. He's never violent either. So "Entitlement" isn't really applicable except for the fact that He has indeed earned what He asks of us.

"Selfishness and Self-centeredness" sure doesn't fit, since His sacrifice was entirely selfless, and His choice of inviting us into His kingdom is hugely charitable and not self-centered at all.

He holds no contempt for anyone. Contempt for sin, yes, but not for people. We're all loved infinitely by Christ. So "Superiority" doesn't apply.

He never claimed we were His possessions. He gives us full freedom from Himself. When He asked a rich man to give up all his wealth to follow Him and the rich man chose to turn Him down, Jesus never pressured Him. He just let Him go. Following Him is our choice, not His. So no "Possessiveness".

Again, He's never been violent. Unless you count flipping the tables at the temple, but He wasn't hurting people there, just making a mess. So He doesn't "Confuse Love and Abuse."

"Manipulativeness"...Nope. Not by this definition. Nothing He says is confusing or distorting, and He never lies.

He's not "Contradictory" either. He always practiced what He preached, and all of His teachings are clear and straightforward.

I don't understand how He could be "Externalizing Responsibility" either. This thing talks about shifting blame, but Jesus was blameless. Pure of all sin.

And "Denial" doesn't apply because as I've been making quite clear throughout this list, Jesus has no guilt to deny. He was, and still is, perfect.

1. The key word being faith. Humans are capable of immense amount of faith, but no one can truly trust God infinitely as Jesus did. Therefore, no one can harness His power (except the Disciples to some degree).

2. He's referring to His grace. If you seek the grace of Christ, He will save you. But if not, then you will never receive it. Plain and simple.

3. I don't understand how that one is a lie.

4. This one could be answered with my response to #1.

5. Same as #2.

6. I had to read the chapter this came from for context. It appears He's referring to the Disciples. Like I said, they were able to pull off some crazy Jesus shit themselves.

7. God makes all things possible through the works of nature and people. Whatever you want, if you believe in Christ, He will make it reachable in one way or another.

8. See #7.

9. See #1 yet again. Or #7. They both fit.

Jesus and God are the same entity. I mean in the Bible God created a physical form for Jesus while He was on Earth, but in general they're both one being. That's the thing about the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are all just different faces of the same single God.

I'll say this: On Earth, men can be good among men. God has a standard that we cannot live up to, but between us, some show greater dignity and conduct than others. And this is regardless of religion or spirituality or any of that. Gandhi was a good man among men. Malcolm X was a good man among men. I have respect for non-Christians who live good lives like them. But just understand that as good of men as they are, their goodness only benefits them in this life. For you this is fine because you don't believe in an afterlife, but for me it's distressing. I wish they were still that good and influential but just advocated Christianity.
User avatar #341 to #308 - thebritishguy (02/28/2013) [-]
Gandhi was a racist but Malcolm X was cool, according to the bible both men deserved to be burning alive for eternity.
User avatar #345 to #341 - jokeface (02/28/2013) [-]
The keyword being "deserved". Please understand that the difference between going to heaven and going to hell is not based on what someone "deserves". I believe in Jesus Christ, but I still don't deserve to go to heaven. I'm just as wicked as the next person, and I should be burning for eternity too. But the way we go to heaven is not by "deserving" to go there. If that was the case then no one would ever get there. Yes, Gandhi and Malcolm X both deserve to go to hell but their faith in Christ would not change that. They're still just as sinful as anyone else, no matter what. The only difference between going to heaven or hell is whether you accept Christ's gift. And doing so does not make you a better person, it just grants you undeserved grace in spite of being wicked.

I'm talking about physiological, biological characteristics. The ability to suffer physical pain (Zeus' headache which resulted in the birth of Athena) or sex drive (how Zeus spent the majority of his free time) to name just a few. And people have witnessed the afterlife, but as I said, they are often written off as just lying or being crazy - two things that Jesus was also accused of. And just fucking stop referencing the killing issue. It's been beaten to death (no pun intended). I've already explained to you and to several other people that God is allowed to make exceptions in special cases when He decides it is necessary. It's only a sin if you kill without being commanded to kill. But if you are commanded, then refusing to obey is just as sinful.
User avatar #369 to #368 - thebritishguy (03/01/2013) [-]
was it necessary to kill people who weren't married? I'm not going to ignore all the verses saying who to kill it's like ignoring the parts of mein kampf about killing jews.

User avatar #373 to #369 - jokeface (03/02/2013) [-]
If God deems it necessary, then yes, it is necessary. And which verses are you talking about?

User avatar #375 to #374 - jokeface (03/02/2013) [-]
He doesn't advocate any of those things anymore. Jesus said we are to forgive all sin and encourage others to walk with us in the Light. Our goal is not for people to go to hell. We want to save them.
#377 to #375 - thebritishguy (03/02/2013) [-]
he also said that every word of the scriptures must be lived and not to ignore a single word and that he didn't come to abolish the laws of the prophets.

He said the OT laws only apply until He accomplishes what He came to do. We aren't bound by the old law. And to prove that, I refer you to this link, as I forget if I shared it with you before or not: carm.org/christians-bound-by-law

It was a law given to a specific group of people during a specific time period. God knew from the start that Jesus would bring it to an end.
User avatar #381 to #380 - thebritishguy (03/03/2013) [-]
why would he put all those laws in in the first place?
User avatar #382 to #381 - jokeface (03/03/2013) [-]
Because He's God and He can do whatever the hell He wants. Look at the pork law. He literally said to not eat pork in the OT, and then in the NT Jesus literally said all foods were good to eat:

"And [Jesus] said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?” Thus he declared all foods clean." - Mark 7:18
User avatar #383 to #382 - thebritishguy (03/03/2013) [-]
"Because He's God and He can do whatever the hell He wants." that isn't good enough, not at all, if there is a character who ruins and ends lives and kills millions of innocent people just because he can then he is a twat and is not fit for worship
User avatar #384 to #383 - jokeface (03/03/2013) [-]
I didn't say He did those thing just because He can. I'm sure He has deeper meanings for the choices He makes, we're just not privy to them. The point I was making was, we have no place questioning someone who is infinitely wiser than us. He knows what He's doing.
User avatar #385 to #384 - thebritishguy (03/04/2013) [-]
still not good enough, science may have a few un answered questions but religion! that is a bullshit enigma
User avatar #390 to #385 - jokeface (03/04/2013) [-]
Not good enough? According to what standard? Who's to say what "good enough" is? A huge part of having faith is the willingness to believe without having all the information. That's literally what faith means. Believing without knowing. I can understand why you think that's illogical but you can't tell us what's not good enough for us. A third of the world says it is good enough. Why is it such a big deal to you to know everything?
User avatar #391 to #390 - thebritishguy (03/04/2013) [-]
I didn't say it wasn't good enough for everyone but there are loads of holes and un answered questions to the myth it simply is not good enough for me to believe in something so frail, it seems to me that faith is so over rated because they desperately need it to fill in the gaps and replace reason.

Just because some of the prophesies haven't been fulfilled yet doesn't mean they never will be. We still have time left. As for the science thing, who gives a shit?

The problem is you insist that having never interacted personally with this person constitutes that I shouldn't trust Him. But our ancestors knew Him personally and they passed the stories down to us. If my grandfather had an old war buddy that I never met but he told us countless stories about, I'd believe him. Jesus is like the old war buddy of everybody's grandfather.
User avatar #317 to #311 - thebritishguy (02/26/2013) [-]
no, I am saying you have no reason to believe he exists and that it is impossible to act loving towards him or love him in a psychological sense, the thing is no body has told first person accounts of Jesus so it's more like your grandfather telling you in his diary about his grandfathers friend who was a magical Jewish zombie, would you believe that?
User avatar #322 to #317 - jokeface (02/27/2013) [-]
>No reason to believe He exists

Except that He was already proven to have existed, plus several other things about Him were proven. The only thing not proven about Him was whether or not He was in fact divine.

And fine, call it something else then if it's not love. But you'd have to create a new language, because every translation of the Bible uses its respective word for love.

And yes, four people told first person accounts of Him. And two of them were apostles, and they were Jesus' entourage. They were closer to Him socially than anyone else.

And if a third of the world all had the same account of their ancestor being friends with a magical Jewish zombie, then sure, I'd buy that. I mean, assuming Christianity wasn't a thing, then yes. I wouldn't buy it now though, since I already believe in a different magical Jewish zombie who lived way before my great-great-grandfather.

Two thirds of the world are in utter disagreement. Christianity may not be the majority when you combine all the other groups into one "non-Christian" classification, but each group that makes up the two thirds is much, much smaller than the Christian group. So really, if it comes down to conformity, Christianity is actually the smartest choice. But I'm not in it for conformity. The numbers just make me more comfortable. I'd still support it even if we were the smallest religion.

lets rephrase your statements, "so I guess I should break up with my girlfriend, since I have faith that she's cheating on me. And I should quit my job, since I have faith that I won't continue to receive money from it. And I should move out of my apartment, since I have faith that my landlord isn't plotting to murder me.

there is a difference between my statements and yours, your statements are saying you "don't have" something, but you can not disprove a negative, you don't need evidence to say that something isn't happening. If you make a claim such as "the world was made by a monkey on acid then the first question is going to be "where is your evidence" you are making a claim and you need to justify it. if how ever you said "the world is not made by a monkey on acid" people would say "ok, I'm sure it isn't as there is no evidence for it" and carry on with their lives.

My faith is based on eyewitness accounts. They may not serve as proof but at least I'm not just pulling random theological ideas out of my ass. It's like what I said about the grandfather's war buddy. I'm choosing to trust someone who witnessed a phenomenon. That's where my faith comes from.

What's the point? It's not like atheists ever accept the evidence we present anyway. Shit, there's still some of you who think Jesus wasn't even real, divine or not. And besides, I've already explained why evidence would be counterproductive to our faith. If I went back in time and took a video on my phone of Jesus walking on water or turning water into wine, then came back to the present and showed it to you and you suddenly converted to the faith, your entire basis for believing would be that video evidence. And then you're not actually having faith.
#351 to #348 - thebritishguy (02/28/2013) [-]
well I am extremely against committing my entire life, outlook, beliefs, perspective etc. on a claim which is absurd and has no evidence upon, It is pretty hilarious to me that the church has to resort to brainwash people into thinking believing in theories with no evidence and even counter evidence is a positive thing. It really is insane and has caused so many hardships on others.

there are people who have found loads of counter evidence historical, scientific, linguistic etc. Why on earth is "faith" a good thing, if your going by faith why believe in God and not Allah or Buddha or fucking Zues?
User avatar #359 to #354 - jokeface (02/28/2013) [-]
Well Buddhism isn't a religion, it's a philosophy, and I'll admit it's a good one for the most part. But it also teaches lies about the afterlife, saying we'll be reincarnated and shit. I don't believe that. Zeus is one of the gods of Hellenistic polytheism, which is a joke religion. Given all of Zeus' flaws and humanlike characteristics, he can't be considered an actual "god". And Allah is just another name for our God, except the Muslims believe He gave commandments that contradict those given in the Bible, and at the end f the Bible it says do not add or remove from this Scripture. That means that anything that came after the Bible is bullshit.
User avatar #286 to #285 - jokeface (02/24/2013) [-]
Okay first of all please use correct terminology. Omnipotent means all-powerful. The word you want is omniscient, meaning all-knowing.

Secondly, God doesn't have to correct Himself. Humans should correct their interpretations. We're the flawed ones, not Him. And besides, even if He did mean that they were supposed to kill them, that law doesn't apply anymore. So what are you griping about?
User avatar #287 to #286 - thebritishguy (02/24/2013) [-]
I'm saying he is a cunt, if you want people to kill gay people for no logical reason, you are a disgusting person and if you worship that person and say he is loving you are immoral

so do you believe that gay people deserve to die? it says they are worthy of death and if you disagree you are disagreeing with your God.
User avatar #290 to #289 - jokeface (02/24/2013) [-]
I believe that gays deserve death, but I also believe straight people deserve death. Everyone does. Even you and myself. As pointed out in Romans 3:9-20, everyone is sinful and has turned away from God at some point, and no one is pure or righteous. No one truly fears God the way we're supposed to. Even the bleeding-heart Christians. For everyone is born with blood tainted by sin and therefore everything we do comes from a place of sin, even if it appears noble on the outside. This includes gays, straights, men, women, children, blacks, whites, Christians, atheists...everyone. We all deserve the grave, and that's exactly what everyone got when they died. Then Jesus came along and He was pure and righteous, and so He was able to save us from the grave and take us to heaven even though we don't deserve it. We owe Him everything for that.
User avatar #291 to #290 - thebritishguy (02/24/2013) [-]
can't you see how disgusting that belief is? you think that children deserve to die! you think Jesus is good because he saved us from God? makes perfect sense...
The way I see it Jesus is like an abusive boyfriend he manipulates, scares you with hell and tells you you are not worthy of him to make you feel like nothing so you are vulnerable and desperate, and then he says "it's ok, I love you and if you love me you will be saved" so that you become so dependant on him. This is why in abusive relationships it is so hard for the girls to leave they have been manipulated and controlled by this method so that in their mind leaving the boyfriend is not an option because they have been manipulated into thinking that if they leave this figure they are helpless and nothing.
User avatar #292 to #291 - jokeface (02/24/2013) [-]
First of all, Jesus is God, so no, He didn't save us from Himself. And yes, children deserve to die because they are sinners. But you're missing the whole point of our faith, which is that we don't have to die just because we deserve it. Jesus has removed that burden from our backs

And I'm struggling to understand your analogy because Jesus has never, nor will ever, hurt us. A boyfriend being abusive means he either hits the girl or is verbally cruel to her. Jesus doesn't hit people or say anything that isn't true about them. When He says we're sinners, He's right. But at the same time, he tries to help us resist sin, and even when we slip up, He forgives us. That's not abusive.
User avatar #294 to #292 - thebritishguy (02/25/2013) [-]
if Jesus is God he went on a big suicide mission so he could forgive people, this makes even less sense than before
User avatar #293 to #292 - thebritishguy (02/25/2013) [-]
he is going to send a shit load of people to hell, he says that all human nature is sinful to make you feel bad when you are simply giving in to human nature (abuse):
Jesus says, “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace on earth! No, rather a sword lf you love your father, mother, sister, brother, more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. “The real beauty of this verse is that Jesus demands people truly love him more then they love their own family. I ask you how can we love someone that we can not see or interact with? Love is an emotion pertaining to physical existence not to faithful ideologies, yet God threatens you with Death just because your love for your mother maybe stronger than your love for him. Matthew 10:34
User avatar #295 to #293 - jokeface (02/25/2013) [-]
I still don't see how it's abusive. He's not the one sending people to hell. It's their choice to go to hell or to follow Him. And the thing about the sword doesn't happen until He returns. And you're really gonna make a big deal about the family thing? Why? If that's what we need to do to receive His grace, so be it. It's not like He wants us to stop loving our family altogether. He just wants us to be willing to put our faith in Him above everything else. That's how we show Him we trust Him enough to save our souls in the afterlife.
#296 to #295 - thebritishguy (02/25/2013) [-]
because he is clearly insane! he is demanding people feel an emotion or they will be set on fire like some psycho narcissistic bitch! They clearly are sending people to hell as they set the rules on how to avoid hell and created hell. It is not a choice I don't know how many times I have to say this if I wanted to believe in God I couldn't it's like you trying to believe in Santa Claus, do that now try to believe in Santa. I'm saying it's abusive because he's saying he gets angry when people do things that are impossible to avoid as they are human nature so when they do them they feel guilty I have felt this when I first started masturbating mfw

He's not telling us how to feel. In Greek there are three majors words for love: Agape, Phileo, and Eros. Agape means a love that is born of the will, meaning that even if you don't feel a personal emotional relationship with someone, you still act lovingly toward them. Phileo means a love that comes from brotherliness or familiarity. Like the love you feel for your family and friends. And eros means sexual love so that one doesn't apply here. But you're inferring that Jesus is talking about phileo, the love that you just feel. But He used the word agape, meaning He wants us to act lovingly toward Him even if we can't feel the love emotionally.

you still can't act lovingly to something that isn't there, you can't act lovingly to Santa, also your claim doesn't make sense this is what your interpretation is, “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace on earth! No, rather a sword lf you act lovingly to your father, mother, sister, brother, more than me, you are not worthy of being mine."
even if he did mean this what is insane is that he is so desperate for attention he has to threaten people with burning alive and torture if they don't act loving towards him even though they can't see him and the majority of people have never heard his name, why would he be so narcissistic and desperate?

Hell was created for the sinners, and then Jesus took the bullet for the sinners. Got us into heaven for free. To deny His invitation is the same as saying you would rather pay for your sins yourself.

lets use the invitation analogy, this is an invite you would receive:

you don't have to come you have free will but if you don't want to come I will chop off your legs and burn you

This is a tough one. I mean. LotR was obviously much more well written, took more effort and creativity, and has a much deeper message. But Harry Potter has Emma Watson, sooo...Idk.
User avatar #265 to #264 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
to me lotr has no real sense of loss, Gandalf made me a little sad but he came back anyway, I didn't really feel it that much and I thought the characters were a little shallow so no doubt it is Harry Potter as that has a special place in my heart
User avatar #266 to #265 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
I understand that. But consider that LotR is heavily allegorical of Christianity. Gandalf is a transparent representation of Jesus, dying to save the others and then coming back to life after conquering a beast of fire and shadow. The One Ring is a symbol for sin and temptation. Frodo represents the human struggle to resist said temptation and ultimately overcome it by casting the Ring into the fires from whence it came (sending Satan back to hell). I think that's why I like it so much. I love symbolism.

Then again, you have a point about Harry Potter being more heartfelt. It certainly speaks to the childlike fantasy within most people who wish they could magically conquer the evil in their lives, while finding love, friendship, and happiness along the way. There's really no way to not like that series, unless you have a heart of stone.
#267 to #266 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
the thing about art is that the same picture could mean a completely different thing to different people, I agree that Tolkien was trying to portray a religious story but to me it means that the smallest of people can make the biggest changes in the world also there is interesting cases of the butterfly effect, if Frodo never fell down into Gollums lair which would at first seem really bad actually turned out to be really good, so it makes me think what may seem bad in life could turn out to be really good.
User avatar #268 to #267 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
That's very true, and it happens all the time. Which is why when bad things happen, you hear a lot of theists say things like "God has a plan," or "Everything happens for a reason."

I wouldn't go that far with it I meant it in a subjective way, lets take the case of Fritzel he raped his two mentally ill daughters and locked them in a cellar.
User avatar #270 to #269 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
I just read the Wikipedia page about that case. It was actually one daughter and three of her children. Anyway, I couldn't find a silver lining. But then again, that was the result of horrific sinning, not a natural disaster. Ergo, it wasn't implemented by God in order to serve a greater purpose. However, that's not to say that God didn't influence circumstances that would result in the best case scenario given the circumstances in place. The way Fritzl was caught came about because one of the children had kidney failure and had to be removed from the cellar to be hospitalized. Perhaps God arranged for the kidney failure to happen (knowing that she would survive it) so that the family could be saved.
User avatar #271 to #270 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
and what about the millions of people who are in similar situations and died like the girls who are locked in bathrooms, I heard some stories in England on the newspaper about little girls who starved to death because they were locked in bathrooms or cellars
User avatar #272 to #271 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
I'm going to reiterate a simple point I've made countless times before: Good things happen because humans do God's will. Bad things happen because humans go against God's will. It's like flipping a light switch. God is providing constant power to the light switch, but it's up to humans to actually flip it to the "on" position. For this reason, all good things come from God through humans, and all bad things come from humans refusing to obey God (not counting natural disasters of course).
User avatar #273 to #272 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
little children who died in the cellars do not deserve to die in cellars because they went against Gods will if that's what your trying to say. Obeying god includes killing sorcerers, disobeying god includes women speaking in church.
User avatar #274 to #273 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
I'm not saying the children died because they disobeyed God. They died because another human disobeyed God by doing that to them. They were the victims of the sin of another.

And the thing about sorcerers doesn't apply anymore because Jesus said no killing. As for the thing about women speaking in church, I'd like to quote Katharine Bushnell from her book, A God's Word to Women:

(Referring to the commonly cited 1 Timothy 2:12) "There should be no comma after the word "teach", which changes the meaning of the sentence to mean that women were not to teach men, but could teach women. But more importantly, she provides a historical context of this epistle stating that women were in great danger at the time of its writing. The growth of Christianity had made believers great enemies of Rome and the Jews, both which treated women with disdain. To freely allow women open ministry would place women at great risk, and Paul refused to jeopardize their status.

She maintains that this itemsition is a personal one similar to his suggestion to Timothy to drink some wine for his stomach's sake. While she believes the Word of God is inviolable and absolute. there are personal words given in the context of' Scriptures that are not intended for all believers at all times in history. For instance, Paul told Timothy to bring the cloak and books with him that he had left at Troas with Carpus (II Tim. 4:13). Anyone would know that this piece of instruction was meant for a situation at that time. No one expects us to be looking for a cloak at Troas as part of our spiritual obedience.

She contends that Paul did not practice this teaching of refusing a woman to teach, neither did he teach it in other settings. She states that while men are quick to jump on this Scripture and others like it to justify their view of male dominance, they do not adhere to other teachings that are in a similar cast such as when Paul wished that all men were single and celibate like himself. Very few men have taken Paul up on that one."

God also said not to kill in the ten commandments and then contradicts this maybe 50 times by saying who to kill like homosexuals. I don't think it matters to the hungry and abused children as to why they are slowly dying it is barbaric and wrong and if you worship the character you believe to be responsible then that is insane. It still is sexist in the verse saying that women shouldn't have authority or teach men, shocking.
User avatar #276 to #275 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
Nowhere does the Bible say to kill homosexuals. It says they shall be put to death, but it doesn't command humans to put them to death. I believe it means God will put to death their spirits (as in, send them to hell). And God is not responsible for making those children hungry and abused. That's the fault of the shitty people depriving them of proper food and care. It's our duty to help everyone in need. That's how God helps people, by working through other people.
User avatar #277 to #276 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
but you said that everything was Gods plan, it was because something happened that was against Gods will and everything happens for a reason? that verse definitely means to kill gay people it says there blood shall be upon them, you can't make up bullshit that is not in the bible.
User avatar #278 to #277 - jokeface (02/23/2013) [-]
I'm not making anything up. I'm using logic. Don't you atheists like logic? God says no killing. Then He says these people shall be put to death. He wouldn't contradict Himself, which means that He doesn't mean we are the ones who have to put them to death. The only other possibility is for Him to do it.
User avatar #279 to #278 - thebritishguy (02/23/2013) [-]
no he definitely would contradict himself he has done it thousands of times, there are loads of verses explicitly saying not only who to kill but how to kill them (he seems to enjoy stoning) you are not using logic you are finding a problem and then imagining a solution to it that is in no way logical. You seem to have evaded many of my arguments so I will repeat them:
1. you said God didn't make those children die but you said that everything was Gods plan, it was because something happened that was against Gods will and everything happens for a reason? so which one is it?
2. The verse says that they shall be put to death and there blood shall be upon them, he did not kill them or make them bleed in any way and it doesn't mention hell so what does it mean?
3. the bible has many instructions on who to kill and how. http://www.evilbible.com/Murder.htm do you still stand by your point?
User avatar #280 to #279 - jokeface (02/24/2013) [-]
1. By God's "plan" I'm referring to God's foreknowledge that such events would occur, meaning He was prepared to respond to them accordingly. Remember what I said about God influencing the hearts of man so that they know to behave one way but still had the freedom to act a different way? Same principle. God gave the sinners the opportunity to not do these evil things, but they went against it. And then, after they had done it, He again gave them opportunities to stop, and again they resisted.

2. He's referring to the death of the soul. So yes, it does mean hell. Consider that elsewhere hell is described as being a place where there will be "weeping and gnashing of the teeth." If tears and teeth exist in hell, then blood can just as well exist.

3. That link is very informative, thank you. Naturally I ignored all the examples from the Old Testament as Jesus' law overrules them. And there are only two examples from the New Testament. The example from Romans does not say to kill anyone, but only that God will inflict a death penalty on them (which, given the context, implies hell, not earthly death). The example from Acts does not say to kill anyone, only that two people died. The heading of that example says Peter killed them but obviously if you read the verse you can tell God did, not Peter. And God is not bound by the laws He gives to man.

from my perspective these are just your ideas, they are not backed up by evidence or the bible, can you give me parts of the bible which say what you claim?
also do you know how the bible was compiled?
User avatar #282 to #281 - jokeface (02/24/2013) [-]
Um, yes. God wrote it in heaven and then teleported it into the hands of Christians all over the world.

I jest of course. The Bible was composed from the writings of about 40 prophets who were influenced by God either speaking directly to them, spiritually inspiring them, or simply giving them wisdom for them to put in their own words.
User avatar #283 to #282 - thebritishguy (02/24/2013) [-]
I thought of a good question, if God didn't mean that we should kill gay people and is omnipotent, why didn't he maybe say "don't kill gay people" when millions of gay people over a period of probably about 1 thousands of years will be killed? If he was omnipotent he would have known that in after saying this millions of people will die, he even had the chance to say it in the rest of the bible which was quite a lot of books. I think you will like to see this documentary it talks about how the books of the bible were chosen and put together to form the book people read today: www.youtube.com/watch?v=phyN5tWUIUI
