I'm just curious about the posters who seem to be against Christianity here. Maybe i'm just misunderstanding the posts. do people here not believe in God or a god? because through all the wonders of the world, i can't imagine a world without a God. where did time come from? did man make up the concept of time? or space? how is it that man is the only animal that loves each other, shares with each other. in other animals, as in bats, they share with kin, but not with non-kin. humans are the only things on earth that help people out of family. why is that? where did right/wrong come from? because i don't know of any evolutionary trace of animals developing a sense of right and wrong. i'm just curious to know what others have to answer these questions. =)
isn't it interesting to know that it's sooo easy to go to heaven? whole-heartedly accept Jesus as our savior and to forgive our sins. easy to say that. but whole-heartedly? but i believe that the building a religion around yourself is a sense of kicking yourself around on the ground. i've been in ruts where my mentality was "why would God want to forgive me? i keep sinning over and over again." and there i am stuck in a rut of self-pity. by knowing that God will forgive you and accept you and lets you go on with your life is great. you're cool with God and you're not left with some kind of grievance in your heart. sorry if i misinterpret your post in any way. =)
The purpose of those who created organized religion was to accumulate followers, wealth and power.
is that always the case? i sure haven't seen anything like that. of course, things like this will happen because people aren't perfect. but i think it's kind of hard to make such generalizations. in statement #6, i was wondering if you can clarify what you mean as proof and what you mean as "right." to comment on statement #7, it's not about works getting into heaven. but the catch is, people do good deeds as a representation of their faith. why do people become missionaries? to strike it rich? naw. and we don't worship Jesus to stay in a club. we praise Him for all the good He's done in our lives. CHristianity is about a relationship. that's the best i can describe it. if i've misunderstood any of your post, i apologize as i do to bires. thanks!
"I think. Therefore, I pray."
