Did you know the real significance of the cross and the church steeple on top of most Christian churches? Hint: The cross actually has nothing to do with Christ, and the steeple was not originally intended as a bell tower.

You state what you believe, OP; and I'll tell you what I know about it (no Googling allowed--I want to see how much you know about the symbols used in your faith).

Well as people I like Mormons. I've only met a few but the ones I have I've really respected. They tend to have a genuine faith and a sense of urgency to share that with others, which is great. As a belief system, however, it's false and close to being a cult in my mind.

No. No it's not.
>>
>>701139878
A creator could be there, but considering the endless possibilities due the age and size of the universe and our own insignificance in it, doesn't it seem rather unlikely to you, that a god or religion would cater so much to our various needs and wishes? Of course religion does explain that (choosen ones, created from his image and so on), but the fact, that several of them exist and flourished as soon as humans had the infrastructure for it to thrive, seems rather unlikely. I think it even seems selfish, when you really look at the size of the universe. We are so tiny, our minds do not even have the capacity to imagine how tiny we really are.

That's my reason for not believing. I know a few religions (obviously the big 5), but every additional one seems just as likely as the one we were raised with, two of the other big ones are almost exactly identical. Would be interested to hear how a religious person thinks about that.
>>
If God is all-knowing and all-powerful why would he create us knowing that our actions would lead us to either heaven or hell?

>>701141395
I mean I would really react so much as share with them what I believe and invite them to share what they believe. I think forming a relationship with someone should precede telling them what they are doing is wrong.

>>701141640
Very good topic. I agree that there's a tendency to feel silly assuming a God that created such a huge universe would put so much focus on us. I think of it like this: if a truly all powerful being created the earth, he could choose to make the entire universe relatively small or relatively huge. Making it bigger isn't exactly any harder. The reason for making a huge universe could be that he wanted us to have an idea of who he was by observing what he was capable of.

I have an alternate theory as well. At the time of creation it was intended that we would not die but live in the paradise created for us for eternity. Obviously there's logistical issues there with the limited size of the earth... but lo and behold we find ourselves in a HUGE and infinitely expanding universe. I find it reasonable that humankind was intended to populate the entire expanse of the universe... forever. We also would be much much smarter if no one ever died and sin had not entered the world.

>>
>>701143320

Good point. Except I don't believe the sin-part and would think of it more as future generations will live longer (forever somday?), have advanced technology and might use more space. Except the universe is still to large for that, because it is expanding faster than travel is physically possible, so we (or any matter) can never reach the end of it.

What do you say to the problem that there are so many religions and all of them seemed to be designed to be likened by humans? I would think a religion we do not like would be just as likely to be true, except it would not be known, because nobody would share it. This is the hard part to argue about, because at this point nobody can prove anything and it comes down to believing.

Well the Bible does say the Jesus brought a man back from the dead, cured a leper with his bare hands, the Red Sea parted for Moses etc. etc. In addition, there are multiples times throughout human history where the Church has attempted to hinder the progress of science and social development. That seems to be a bit contradictory.

Yea I get what you're saying. Actually I find Christianity to be pretty anti- what we would like. What I mean is for one thing the Jews wanted their savior to be a political leader who would defeat the Romans. I think of Christianity had been fabricated it would be a lot more um... heroic I guess. Jesus died shamed and beaten and bleeding on a cross. His message was about denying our fleshly "wants" and being obedient to a higher power. If I were creating a religion it would be nothing like any of that, honestly.

>>701145467
I believe they did exist. It seems that Jesus believed that as well. What I mean by not taken literally is there's a lot of different types of writing in there. Some of it is descriptive prose which seems to be intended to be literal accounts of events, and some of it is obviously poetry which is figurative.

The audience were people oppressed by the Romans. But even today, everybody cheers for the underdog.

But I am meant something entirely different: Why not a rabbit, who wants to be hated by us and wants us to act edgy on /b/. Or why concepts why understand at all, why not something sub-atomic or beyond our senses. I would even argue sub-atomic is the most realistic thing, because quantum-state is a place where there is still room for a god to act, at least for now. Of course I am not saying that it is not the Christian god acting there, just laying out how I think about all this.

Thanks for the nice discussion, have a nice day, /b/ro.

I mean those are miracles that break the laws of physics, which God created. He can do that. He didn't create the laws of logic, they just exist by necessity. He can't break those... not because he isn't "powerful enough" but because it just isn't possible.

I have an honest question. I have seen a picture floating around on the internet where it shows a woman thanking god for helping her find her car keys, another man thanking god for helping him score a touchdown, and then a third picture of an extremely emaciated african youth. this child might not know god, or at least the same god you believe in (i personally feel that if there is a god, there is only one, and everyone just needs to put their own spin on him/her). i guess my question is, what kind of loving god can justify the agony of all those children in impoverished countries?

Aquinas was a touch bias in his arguments. He was a Dominican friar after all, and was hardly going to argue that the god he had devoted his life to was a figment of his imagination.
Also I dispute your use of the word "proofs" There is no proof that a god of any kind exists, and the Faith argument is a cop out.

Actually, the Roman execution device of the day was not a cross. It was a wooden stake. The Greek words used in the original texts of the books of the New Testament are xulon, which means a tree, but not a living tree; and stauros which means “an upright stake,” to which criminals were nailed for execution during the rule of the Roman Empire.

The cross came to be used as the symbol of the structure upon which Christ was crucified when the Catholic Church was wooing pagan worshipers into the church. Several pagan deities were portrayed as having been crucified on crosses, and the Egyptian symbol of the Ankh was a cross-like symbol. The Catholic papacy modified its portrayal of Christ's crucifixion from being nailed to a xulon or stauros (tree, or stake) to a cross.


As for the steeple, it was a pagan symbol adapted by the Catholic Church as part of the papacy's efforts to lure pagan worshipers into the church, much the way that idols were given the names of Saints with the same attributes of pagan gods. The steeple now used on so many churches was actually a phallic symbol--in other words, it symbolized the penis, which was an object of worship in some pagan cultures. The pagan symbolism was masked by the Catholic and Protestant churches by making the steeples double as bell towers.

This is a complicated question and a very valid one. It's hard to answer and there's a lot I don't know. What I do know is God is loving even though he allows suffering. I also know that human suffering is only temporary and that God deals justly with all individuals after life is over. I don't know why he ordered things the way he did, but I do know he's just, and good.

> We are so tiny, our minds do not even have the capacity to imagine how tiny we really are.
That's my reason for not believing.

So, you're saying that you don't believe in God, because your mind is so tiny?

For an infinitely powerful (Omnipotent) Creator, the size of the Universe is irrelevant. You're right, though in your assessment of our understanding of such an entity. However, that speaks to our incapacity to understand, not to a Creator God's existence.

If you read the Scriptures, you will see that the creation of humans was at once an act of love and an exercise in free will--the free will of two creatures made in the image of the Creator who were given only one simple restriction: "Of all of the trees of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, lest you die." (paraphrased). It was a simple test of obedience by choice rather than coercion. In the event that the first couple were deceived by Satan (the serpent who deceived Eve in the garden) and disobeyed the Creator, the plan of salvation was put into place to pay the price of willful disobedience, which was death, so that humans could be forgiven and their sins atoned for.

As for the vastness of the universe, an infinitely powerful Creator could have spoken the universe into existence and caused it to expand to its present size in an instant, not billions of years. Such a Creator would also be able to form the earth and the solar system of which it is a part, created life on the planet, and create human beings in a literal week with no problem.

It is also revealed in the Holy Scriptures that the same Creator made other worlds and other intelligent entities. The earth and humanity were just a tiny facet in the creation of the universe. Read the book of Job, where the delegates of all the other inhabited planets in the universe were gathered together for a meeting with the Creator, and Satan showed up as prince of this world.

Satan gained control of this planet by causing Adam and Eve to disobey the Creator, and thereby forfeiting their dominion over the planet. Satan then claimed dominion over the planet by virtue of the fact that Adam and Eve submitted to him when they allowed Satan to deceive them.

Satan claimed that he and his ways were superior to the Creator and His ways. What is now playing out is the Creator's allowing the universe to see what life is like on this planet under Satan's rule. All that is left for the controversy to come to its conclusion is the fulfillment of the prophecy that the Gospel will be preached unto all the world as a witness to Christ, to allow everyone the opportunity to accept or reject the Creator's forgiveness and His Son as the Messiah--the Redeemer. When everyone has been given the choice and has chosen his or her path, then the closing events will take place, the righteous redeemed, and those who rejected Christ, along with Satan and the angels who were cast out of heaven with him will be burned to ashes, and the earth recreated as it was before sin entered it.

I 100% disagree. Kids are not able to make their own decisions. They are impressionable and accept whatever their elders tell them as fact. That's why we have age limits on things. I personally believe religion should only be allowed to kids over say 13 so they can make up their own minds.

I was forced to go to church and sunday school my entire childhood. Around the age of 10 I knew it was BS and constantly had my parents and people like you trying to brainwash me. I resent my parents to this day for forcing me into that. Memorizing useless prayers, wasting my entire Sundays, spending weeks of my summer at a camp I hated.

Well, I mean that a lot of kids for whatever reason aren't mentally mature as other kids are. The tv series weeds kinda highlights this

Some people physically mature much slower, which also goes along with mental growth much of the time (ie growth of the brain). I've met people on here who were 16 but were 10x smarter and more mature than I was at the time, but I've also known people who were the definition of manchildren. The former went to really good universities and ended up being career driven by nature a lot of the time, whereas the latter most of the time struggled with issues like independence, and physical and mental health for a great deal of time.

By mentally mature, I do mean cognitively, but typically this will always also mean that if they are of the faithful they will have a broader depth of what it means for them, personally, to be religious and thus will be able to instill it on other kids in their peer range. Generally it doesn't extend beyond "hey, dude, you should go, it's not like what you think!". That's often the maximum. And as I'm sure you know, spiritual/religious/Christian groups have been getting more and more casual, more and more centered on personability between peers and such, and sometimes will only take a religious stance in even 1/8 or so sessions if you're doing it weekly.

Coming from an older person who's culturally religious, and I matured later, an ability for a group's more mature members to mentor less mature and "struggling" kids has a lot to do with how the group develops. What I'm going to suggest is that you consider the religious part of it as an aside in trying to get friends or whatever to come, especially since the population of youth is getting more and more staunchly against such beliefs and practices. And if you can't score that into it, just try to make it like a really casual school club if you can, where more devout members might have a coffee in the lounge and chat religion

Hope I could help.

Just ask for help. Forget the shame, who cares? It's not worth your eternity to avoid a little shame. Most men understand anyway. Kids confess porn addictions to me and think it's the end of the world and that they're the only person in the church that's ever done this. To me it's not only not surprising but almost expected. Then they learn that Christ can forgive them no matter how deep they are and they recover. It's possible. Just gotta take the initiative.

They don't argue that. They just celebrate it on Sunday because it's convenient. It really doesn't matter

mmm lust not necessarily masturbating.

Well, christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ on Sunday. They call it "Easter Sunday", using their own words here. Christians also claim that he died on a Friday. The Bible says that Jesus rose on the 3rd day (1 Corinthians 15:4).

So if he died on Friday, and he rose on the 3rd day afterwards, then that mean that you should be celebrating his resurrection on a Monday. Not a Sunday.

So I ask again, why do christians celebrate the resurrection on a day that he clearly did not resurrect, according to the same book that you believe in.

It's a beautiful concept. It's not surprising that these type of threads garner better discussion atmospheres a lot of the time
>>
>>701160496
it's ironic somehow

>>701160430
Masturbation removes lust. At least for like, 20 mins or so.
>>
>>701160398
So why don't they celebrate Christmas on 1 certain day of the week, due to convenience?
>>
>>701159193
Agreed 100%. Don't worry about what anyone thinks.

There is no eternity. How is your dorm in "Heaven"? If u die as an infant do u stay an infant for eternity? Do u age? If your 95 do u stay 95? Do u age? Do u have all your former wives there? Do they have former spouses there? How do u know who to spend eternity with? Are there fights? disagreements?

I get you. I'm a skeptic at heart too. People think Christians can't be skeptics but we can. I question everything. And if I don't know the answer, I just don't know.

He said porn too. And he said he was in deep. This is likely a lot more than just a little "beating off". Plus, that's not really how damnation/salvation works.

so which part? carefully pick of the following:
-morality is subjective, but you decided you think it's objective
-you think infinity is actually finite
-you think you can comprehend even the slightest said infinite nature of existance?
-religion is the foolproof traditional method of trolling just below calling anything on your dick AIDS and you still live in a world where that's meme enough for you ?

>>701160589
Good point. I don't know. But I still don't think it matters.

I don't f*** kids. I do pay taxes. I'm an electrician I'm not on the church's payroll.

>>701160800
they told me you get to be whatever you want

>>701161654
are most electricians good at touching kids?

>>701161690
Lol. Kinda like Abra cadabbra Magic!!! I want to be young and beautiful! Forever!!! Lol. Religion, so funny.

>>701160800
Form... I'm not sure. I don't know what a spirit looks like or if it even "looks" like anything in the sense that we understand. Same with age. God is timeless and we will be too in eternity. So if we're timeless we must be ageless. None of that stuff will matter. There's no marriage in heaven. Marriage was created by God for companionship and reproduction on earth, but that won't be necessary in heaven since we will have perfect communion with God and won't need to reproduce.

Do you classify yourself as a Christian? Not trying to start a dispute at all. But I'm looking for a simple yes or no answer here.
>>
>>701161854
None that I know of.

>>701162280
Yes.

lol I mean I don't know if I agree with any of that but I will at least say I don't understand even close to everything. I just take the information available to me and do the best I can. We all do. I could be wrong, and I'm ok with that.
>>
>>701162632
Ok. If I'm replying to the right person according to trail of these posts, you refereed to Christians as "They" more than once.

>>701160398

Why didn't you refer to christians as "We" or "Us"?
>>
>>701162277
We're going to just have to agree to disagree. Not going to change my mind. And u are totally all in with your beliefs. But that's all it is is a Belief in something that can't be proved by anyone walking the earth. That's what faith is a belief in something that can't be proven. I can't buy into that.
>>
>>701138485
why do you molest the alter boy?
>>
>>701163199
Yea you are correct. Idk actually. I think it has to do with the fact that I know a lot of Christians out there believe different things about different topics. So it's hard for me to say "we" when I know there's a lot of division. So I say "they" instead I guess. Idk.
>>
the blind faith and "god works in mysterious ways" people have put a mark on christianity
>>
>>701163317
Well this might be cliche but I feel the "proof" comes through the spirit as opposed to the physical senses. But I know that there's no "proof" in the traditional sense. I'm ok with that. I don't buy into it because of any physical proof I've seen. I buy into it because of the things I've experienced.

i hear alot of christians say if the country and by proxy the countrys leader isn't "following god/gods will"(assuming they know and can interpret what the will of god is) then the country is in a "bad place" or is on the "downturn" What are your thoughts on this?
>>
>>701163445
Oh good original question brochacho
>>
>>701156637
They're not tho, just like you weren't. Kids don't have a belief system, they're indoctrinated by their family and the church.
How does it feel knowing you're helping brainwash the youth in your community?
