Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

Unfortunately, your materialistically-oriented (nihilistic) outlook on our situation is preventing you from considering the idea that at the moment of death, the “soul” (i.e., the real reason for the creation of the body in the first place) is going to be “birthed” out the body and into a new and t...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

In your description of Gnostic Christianity, I do not find anything within its tenets that even remotely explains how the order of the universe came about. From that perspective, are you siding with materialism’s view that the universe is a product of chance? Indeed. If not chance and evolution, te...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

When you can name your God, I am, and mean yourself, you will begin to know the only God you will ever find. Becoming a God is to become more fully human and a brethren to Jesus. In your description of Gnostic Christianity, I do not find anything within its tenets that even remotely explains how th...

Re: The problem of self under materialism

What's wrong with deism? Hi Dalek Prime, I actually like Deism from the perspective that it doesn’t merely assume (as does hardcore materialism) that the unthinkable order of the universe is simply a product of serendipitous processes. I understand that what I am about to say will not resonate well...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

Logic and reason have limited use when dealing with the mentally handicapped... Again you offer your humiliating insults toward humans who are innocently stuck in a state of mind that perhaps you yourself were once stuck in prior to your escaping it. Do you also belittle and insult toddlers for the...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

Besides, ridicule is not the “only weapon” that can be used against unintelligible propositions, for it would seem to me that “intelligible” (logical) counter-propositions would be a better weapon. Sometimes, but unintelligible propositions - mostly made by the less intelligent - are not usually am...

Re: The problem of self under materialism

The other “Will or Spirit” to which Berkeley is referring is, of course, God. Possibly, but not certainly. It could be Descartes Demiurgic Spirit, or some other kind of "will." Idealism per se isn't definite about that. Oh come on now, I thought you didn’t like to nitpick. “Bishop” Berkeley was a C...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

I am a Gnostic Christian and that is what I offer to those who put morals ahead of their delusions that cause them to follow immoral Gods. Someone as intelligent as you should be able to understand that no one is following “immoral Gods” in any literal sense. For the most part, people (the “delusio...

Re: The problem of self under materialism

Questions such as the one you have posited above are relatively easy to answer if one is not afraid to entertain Idealism . Well, what you're talking about certainly isn't the Idealism of Berkeley. That's for sure. To reference a quote from Wiki: Here is Berkeley's proof of the existence of God: Wh...

Re: Are all believers in God automatically idol worshipers?

A truth that lying priests and imams will never admit to. They would lose their power to gain the money they collect for their lies. The con would die.
