Re: putting religion in it's proper place

You spoke of your own judgment. As Jesus said, "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” And that I may not induce you to make it worse for yourself than it already is, I will speak to you no more. Strange that you think you will be saved, even as you honor...

Re: putting religion in it's proper place

That incompetent creator god of yours sure screws up our natures eh?

Re: putting religion in it's proper place

Do you see mankind's condemnation as justified and moral? Read for yourself... “There is no righteous person, not even one; There is no one who understands, There is no one who seeks out God; They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, There is not ...

Re: putting religion in it's proper place

It rests on the character and identity of Jesus Christ, and the sole miracle of His resurrection. So I'd suggest you focus on those, so as to manage all the variables comfortably for yourself. Reliance on a barbaric human sacrifice and the punishment of the innocent instead of the guilty. Interesti...

Re: Who will swallow the Corona virus debt? The rich or the poor?

The poor will bear the burden of paying for the pandemic, not with cash but with decreases in public services. How sad! The parasites might not have as much to mooch. They might actually have to do something to provide for themselves, like everyone else. There is such a thing as systemically forced...

Re: putting religion in it's proper place

Religion is just the hopes and dreams of those most fearful of death, that believe themselves worthy of nothing less that everlasting life, usually hypocrites with their free pass. Historically they've seen it as the "power" they so rightfully deserve, that is achieved passive aggressively, that ha...

the poor - as always. They do not have the cash, but I can see many in the middle classes pay, and this will drive themselves below the poverty line.

Re: Who will swallow the Corona virus debt? The rich or the poor?

Who will swallow the Corona virus debt? The rich or the poor? Financial debt is illusory, and can be cancelled. Poverty is a condition imposed by governments through the tax system. Demonstrate this? In Australia the tax system leaves low income earners alone and draws tax from high income earners....

Re: putting religion in it's proper place

Wow. You didn't even get it right for one word. :shock: That's pretty remarkably off-point. Do I even need to point out to you that Atheists don't believe in "Eve"? So "Eve" cannot form any part of their explanation of Evil. Irrelevant. Hardly. You said you'd speak for Atheists. You didn't. I'm not...
