Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Humans are the only animal that have religions. Animals don’t know cause and effect but humans do. Yet the cause of rain, sun and other natural phenomena were mysteries to ancient people. So, they guessed that gods were the cause. What else could it be? Belief in gods did not give ancient humans co...

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

bahman

Thanks. Most moral people do.

Christians read it and ignore and never reply.

They are not good at moral issues. Not surprising given their vile theology and god.

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

The human "trinity" is body, mind and soul. Was Jesus not human? If he was, he could not neglect the needs of any of his three parts but address the needs of each without ignoring the other two. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost seems to separate the three parts. In people that is not logical. I agree...

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

Could Jesus decide not to die? He is a human with a soul and He is free. Jesus said he was doing the fathers will and not his own, so I would say no, to your first. I disagree with your last. Gnostic Christianity thinks Jesus is just and archetypal good man hero of 1,000 faces. We hold no supernatu...

Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

God gave Adam the right to choose, freedom of choice to do right or wrong, the freedom of sinning and not sinning. What is sinning? to commit something against God's words What if those words were some of the lies that scriptures say Yahweh puts into the mouths of the prophets? Should those not be ...

Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

Consider. First, let us eliminate what some see as evil. Natural disasters. These are unthinking occurrences and are neither good nor evil. There is no intent to do evil even as victims are created. Without intent to do evil, no act should be called evil. In secular courts, this is called mens rea....

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Theism is broadly defined as the belief in the existence of a Supreme Being or deities. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theism It is very common knowledge that most theists will defend their theism like there is no tomorrow and some theists will even kill those who are perceived as a threat their bel...

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

If it is then how they deal with the tension in decisions? No. The triplets in the Trinity are not equal. So says scriptures. They show the Father volunteering or choosing Jesus to die. Further, Yahweh knows when the end of days will arrive and Jesus did not. Jesus could not independently decide to...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Does anyone here know the correct answer to this question? Thoughts? Christians sing that Adam's sin was a happy fault and necessary to Yahweh's plan. They then stupidly call it a fall. They should have stuck with the Jewish take of Original Virtue instead of reversing it to Original Sin. Since Ada...

Re: Putting ''Immanuel Can'' In The Religious Spotlight Part 2

become a parent and you will This means nothing to me, sorry. a parent worth his salt will sacrifice himself to preserve his child I agree with this. The Jesus myth is showing that your god is not even up to par morally with humans as he sent the son to die instead of stepping up himself. What a p*...

Re: Is there a nature of sin in free will?

God gave Adam the right to choose, freedom of choice to do right or wrong, the freedom of sinning and not sinning. Does this mean there is a nature of sin in our free will? If we are really "perfect" when we were made, doesn't that mean we should only know to do the right thing? If a human is made ...

If U mean whether or not God exists, then certainly since I have gnosis - and was born into Christianity (not the stupid North American evangelist crap) - it appears, that indeed it was required - that to know God, one must 1st go ...

Re: Why should we be blamed?

Why should we be blamed for coming to this world and playing a role that God is the Grand Designer? We should not. The god religions are full of moral cowards who fear telling the genocidal god, Yahweh, to shove his homophobic and misogynous religion up from where he pulled them out of. The false b...
