Hi All....(its me tim but shh dont tell anyone).

I suppose most of you will have lots to say...and some would say God doesn't love us or who is God?

But i realised that i have been a Christian for over 7 years and i didn't really 'know' God....therefore my idea of LOVE was some what distorted. So what is this love that God has for us..even though we look around us at His creation and see such chaos......even though the good suffer.....what is that all about?

Why does God love us?

Is there a section for christian views, oppinions,insight etc...?
Speak soon

Well, PC, you found the right thread but I do hope your god has blessed you with a thick skin. Many of us will not only disagree with your christian beliefs but you're bound to take a few shots over it. If you are willing to debate it though, more power to ya!

Why does God love us?

Answer - maybe the question should be How does God love us? If this is some omnipotent satient being you are talking about, it has an odd way of expressing love. First the Stunami(?) of Asia last Xmas and now a double whammy in the Hurricane zone of the U.S. God apparently loves to drown a lot of people all at once. Don't tell me that it's some great mistery of how God shows love. If God is our Father he sounds like a very disfunctional parent at the least. I would have charges of mass murder brought (or at least child abuse). Lets put this supreme being on trial.

Pride is one of the big sins, Ocean. So is avarice. Somebody should point that out to the Christian right at some point....maybe one of those TV preachers asking for donations.

I'd like to see that, Ocean. They've been working on the part about a camel fitting through the eye of a needle for a couple of millenia now, it's time they told us some new lies.

they CAN get creative , can't they??? Sometimes it is just too funny. ( and what is funnier still , is that people fall for it..each new lie being perceived as a new "revelation"

hey Proud Christian, great to have you on here. I, like you, am a proud Christian, Protestant.

Many people don't actually "find god" until they are older. I personally had problems with going to church when I was younger but once I got older I found god, and since have had prayers answered. My advice to you would be to keep with it and eventually you will receive yours........

What, exactly, are you protesting? I've always wondered that about Protestants, having been raised a papist before finding atheism.

what "we" don't need is a fecking lecture.....

which "Xtian values might you be referring to?? The ones that support killings, wars, based on lies??? The ones that support a lying, sadistic leader??? The ones that ignore the poor and underpriviledged so the rich can rule over them??? the ones that endorse societal classes. ??? ........ad infinitum???? NO ONE has brought any of those up .......

No actually...I have plenty of reason to take on religion...

Your god is a construct of men, and Jesus never existed...

There, I've said it...

...and by the way Hank...you would be correct about the bigotry if I were to attack only Catholics or Protestants, or even Christians...but I don't, and I never have...

What I do attack with much enthusiasm is Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Shinto, Hinduism, Buddhism and any other idiocies that make false claims as the existence of gods and such...

"What, exactly, are you protesting? I've always wondered that about Protestants, having been raised a papist before finding atheism."

.....I am not protesting anything, what do you mean? Maybe i don't understand your question? And I have nothing against the pope, if you followed him I really don't have no ill will towards you!

Why are you attacking people based on relegion.... this is insane. If some one read the comments made on this post...........

Vanni if you don't believe in jesus i don't care, but don't attack people who do!

How have I attacked believers of Jesus exactly?

I mean that you stated that you are a Protestant. Being a Protestant infers that you are protesting against something, otherwise you're just a rebel without a cause.

I'm not attacking anybody based on religion, I'm encouraging people to think instead of blindly believing a story about a creepy invisible man in the sky with an apparent tendency towards voyeurism.

"What I do attack with much enthusiasm is Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Shinto, Hinduism, Buddhism and any other idiocies that make false claims as the existence of gods and such..."

........... then keep it to yourself becuase it will only offend people to attack their relegion. You have the right to practice the atheist lifestyle and the right to not be attacked. No one said that you have to believe in Christianity, Hinduism or whatever........ but you have to have respect.

"...and by the way Hank...you would be correct about the bigotry if I were to attack only Catholics or Protestants, or even Christians...but I don't, and I never have... "


big·ot·ry (bĭg'ə-trē)
n.
The attitude, state of mind, or behavior characteristic of a bigot; intolerance.

big·ot (bĭg'ət)
n.
One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.

...........a bigot is not only an individual who attacks specific religions, although this is the most common example and understanding. It also applies to people who are intolerant of others Beliefs whether they believe in god or whatever......

mr mom2
you are correct everyone here, including me, is a bigot when it comes to political stances. it is understandable.

but the thing is when someones relegion is attacked or relegion as a whole is attacked then it takes it to another level.
