  1. Why do people try to change Christianity?

    Good God, this post is full of truth. The first council of Nicea was easily the worst moment of Christianity in all of its history. You're welcome to, my friend. Google "early church history," "first council of Nicea." Jesus was literally VOTED to be God incarnate. OP: I'm not exactly sure...
  2. Comfortable with hell

    What a great system of "justice." What have we done; in what ways have we destroyed God, putting our twisted systems, thoughts, behaviours, and instincts into his own?
  3. the BIBLE is clear on being VEGETARIAN

    I simply have no reason to believe that eating meat is "the cause." It is almost entirely unsubstantiated. Then from what perspective do you view animals who eat other animals? Perhaps so. Not in any way. I neither said that there was or wasn't a common source among all acts of violence, merely...
  4. the BIBLE is clear on being VEGETARIAN

    bhaktajan, it is very likely you are overlooking tons of data in your argument. So what if eating meat is "common" among everything, eat meat is natural and, dare I say, "normal." Your problem comes from assuming that there MUST be a common factor among all acts of violence.
  5. the BIBLE is clear on being VEGETARIAN

    Hm.. all this stuff looks like human nature to me. No way to prove that eating meat caused any of this. Mass karmic payback huh? For eating meat? Does not compute.
  6. Bible Translation/Version Suggestions?

    Very interesting. I read some stuff about it on wikipedia, and it said it was accepted in America as the American Standard Version, and is nearly the exact same. If I remember correctly, the American Standard Version is still around today, though I do not know if it is the same as the original...
  7. Bible Translation/Version Suggestions?

    I don't base what Bible I use on what I can understand the easiest. Then I might end up reading some garbage like The Message. I read versions that are closest to an absolute literal word-for-word translation, like the ESV and HCSB. Those are the best versions for free-thinkers who want to...
  8. There is no such thing as 'Free Will'

    An extremely great quote.
  9. Comfortable with hell

    1 Corinthians 3 13his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. 14If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. 15If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he...
  10. My posts are being blocked?

    So... how long should it take for moderated posts to get approved? And if it is approved, does it still add a thread subscription?
  11. A question about Unitarian Universalism

    Alright, that helps a lot. Although, I seriously doubt there is a church near me. My city is a very traditional, Christian city right in the middle of the Bible Belt... haha. Although, there is a Christian science church...
  12. Comfortable with hell

    He, quite in fact, answered the questions very well. Very simply, there is no hell. It is something created by man to enslave and control, and many have been because of it. It is a way to hang souls in the balance, so that one might have absolute control over another. It was created by the...
  13. Is scripture dangerous?

    You raise some interesting points, and then seem to misunderstand some others. On some I will support you, and on some I will oppose you. Your post is full of ideas and topics that are essentially vastly unrelated... Anyway, I'm not going to get to the post until tomorrow. Why? Because it's...
  14. the BIBLE is clear on being VEGETARIAN

    All I see is two verses taken completely out of context. The only thing in the Bible that I know of that remotely supports vegetarianism is the passage where Daniel and his companions grow stronger than the kings men by eating vegetables instead of meat. The only difference with this is, while...
  15. A question about Unitarian Universalism

    eros philia agape. Three different Greek words for different types of love. Our English understanding of love is far inferior to the Greeks understanding, who had five words that we translate as various types of love. I have no problem with liberality. I am almost entirely theologically...
