Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

It's difficult being surrounded by the lost who do not even realize how lost they have become. People gathering for comfort, nothing wrong with that. Sometimes God does do wake-up calls at church-like functions, I agree. Since I consider myself an empath, suffering has a real effect on the dispositi...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

I don't care for organized religions much. God and I have had our struggles, but the relationship He and I have is unbreakable. Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc. as organized religions forget what is most important which is one's relationship with God. Forget all the hoopla, forget the herd, and ju...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

A better question is why pray at all since there is no scientific evidence that praying has any effect on anything. Research studies have been done to gather evidence that group prayers for the ill are beneficial. I haven't checked online to see if any of those studies are documented. The research ...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

FCS wrote You don't know me, so professing to understand me, and to know my actions and history better than I do, without even questioning me, makes me understand you to be a bullying, sanctimonious 'know-nothing', who makes me want to turn away from whatever it is you are spiritually quaffing, rath...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

How can folks who don't actually believe have solidarity in anything other than their unspoken disbelief. Even Jesus' apostles didn't believe and they all had bird's eye views of Jesus in action performing miracles. I get the principle of gathering, but without belief it seems more of a social event...

Re: Do you regard the human brain as the most complex object in the universe?

Still a no. I will say that God trumps the souls he's created, so it seems I erred. God is the most complex and elusive "object" on, around, over, through, above, (He is all "objects") in the universe. How many times is God going to tweak life on Earth? It seems like Earth is an ongoing project of H...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

FCS, Haha, your an atheist with a yen for joie de vivre! Nothing wrong with that. True, you could be talking to yourself in a healthy way, but do that again and get back to me with the Who is going to handle those hopes/wishes. You don't need to talk to yourself to know what they are, so you are voi...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

ForCruxSake,

Why do you keep editing your post above my answer as if to circumvent my already given answer? A believer would not do that in a discussion.

Re: Do you regard the human brain as the most complex object in the universe?

No, it's not the most complex organ, the soul is. The brain is only a relay station for the sensory body to the subtle body of consciousness or soul. People with big souls never have enough material body, perceptions, and neuron synapses, to run their subtle bodies properly hence a lot of intellige...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

Whether he realizes it or not, an atheist is asking for help from a force greater than his own. You think a collective prayer carries more weight? Why? If people are not tuned in, they have no power because while they may be connecting with each other as "believers," they are not connecting their be...

Re: Since God is omnipresent, why congregate to pray?

Man is God's company. True believers do not need to be organized or gather together with anybody else, they have a direct pipeline to God so that gathering together is for money and pretense, sometimes a bit of hope, desire to believe, but no pipeline has been established. Everybody prays informally...
