Re: I Have Never Experienced God Personally

I quit the church routine some time back and have not had much motivation to mess with it these days. The outfit I started with wa part church and part cult and they taught many things I found to be wrong later. But among the things they taught that I aggreed with was the seventh day sabath. I never...

Re: You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

Jlay, how would you have me respond to your demeaning comments? You are quick to respond at length and throw in you little jabs. I never referred to the bible as bunk, but I'll tell you this much, I watched a mother and other family members go througy baptism and claim they had the holy spirit. She ...

Re: You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

I wasn't "airing my dirty laundrey" as you put it, but if that's how it appears, then why make it worse by elaborating on the situation? My whole point was my own observations and where it led me. I took responsibilty for my own actions, as I stated. It's sort of funny how people tell me all the tim...

Re: You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

That was what killed it for me years ago. That scripture and others like it such as "fervent prayer availeth much". After I moved to another state things went horribly wrong for years. Job trouble, car trouble, all sorts of things. I took on different jobs and kept losing money till I lost the house...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

It took me a few years to realize that it was not my fault and I did tell her that the marriage was breaking down, that she had responsibilities in it the same as me, nbut it's like so many people that they will cause their own problems then gripe about the results. She wondered why I tossed my wedd...

Please define Speaking In Tounges

Here's a problem: According to scripture the desciples were eating and the holy spirit descended on them to give them the supernatural power to speak in foreign languages in order to preachto the world. Ever since then people talk of speaking in tounges. I was in a church years ago that was disinteg...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

To make a long explanation very short, when the wife and me got together we had long discussions on how to raise the kids, since she had two and I managed to add another later, and it was an attempt on my part to run a home as I was supposed to. Ever the period of years, I tried going to church, I t...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

There are also many non believers for other reasons. Take evangelists for example: The wife was thoroughly devoted to a certain set of them who she watches all the timeand she became hotly offended if I said anything negative about these hell fire preachers. I did some reserch on them also and found...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

Marioloo, i think your reply shows more understanding of where I am coming from. Too many times people including me base their conclusions on what they see in front of them and the conclusions are wrong. As I began researching years ago I found that people would read the intervention of their God, a...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

jlay, if I want to be chastised, I have a wife for that. Are you trying to be nice? Wow, I'm impressed. Sorry if I dont have the faith you think I should have, but I've had my reasons over the years. You sound like the guys who tell me that God doesn't answer my prayers because he finds black clothe...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

As for mythology and the bible, I used to study mythology in school. and the strories of men and womenfrom the sky such as Zeus, Atlas, and a host of others, all have the same characteristics. These are beings who have supernatural powers and perform supernatural acts, and they have sons and daughte...

Illness

I am struggling with faith right now, and am looking for answers. I have an illness which is not worsening but it very hard to live with. One of the wifes relatives claimed it was an STD but the fact is I have never been promiscuous, so that rules that out. Whatever it is, it is miserable and I woul...

Re: Something that really bothers me about theology

Having been involved and damaged by a cultish church, my belief is that cults use religion as a means to take the weak or gullible and excercise control over them, to terrorize them into submission to the point of running their lives and even initiating their destruction (Jim Jones). Cults are not a...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

Thanks for the reply, in answer to your questions, the reasons why I have not abandoned faith are a few. For one thing, if those experiences taught me nothing esle it was that humanity is flawed, that people fall for the right gimmick and no one is above error, including me. I am not of superior men...

Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

I used to spend much time debating non believers and I searched a numnber of churches to try and find one suitable to raise my kids in that would help me to lead them in a positive path. I have found certain reasons for lacks of believers which I will mention here: The bible is a book filled with st...
