    I will not answer your earlier questions about the bible. I will allow others to do so as I am, as stated, neither a strong believer or anything like that. I am sure your questions were open to everyone so I can let another answer.

    On the above statement regarding impeachment, let me be clear. I cannot stand what is happening to our country and did not vote for the current admin. I am sure you are speaking emotionally when you say that we could demand impeachment, but we cannot. It is clearly outlined in the constitution as " treason, bribery,high crimes and misdemeanors" and while I think what he is doing is immoral, it is not impeachable. Just speaking logically.

    Being an awful, awful pres is not enough.

  3. Midnight, your thoughts are worthy but fruitless. When will you learn that religion and abortion is not worth your time? Ask al gore he invented the internet and Global warming.

    Midnight, you have so much to learn. As I referenced in a prior post, Congress is comprised of two houses... Source: United States House Of Representatives | Ask.com Encyclopedia "The United States House of Representatives is the lower house of the bicameral United States Congress, the upper house being the United States Senate."

    We do have three branches of government: The Executive Branch, The Legislative Branch and The Judicial Branch. For further information: Congress for Kids: [Constitution]: The Three Branches of Government

    Guess we're never too old to learn something new...and I include myself in that statement!

    Midnight you must have had something very troubling in your life to be so cynical about Faith. I can only hope for you to have peace in your mind and forgiveness for those that have hurt you so much.
    Peace be with you in this scary world.

    How did you know? You're right. I'm very bitter about what it's done to me. I was raised Catholic, and all the boys in my youth group would go on a trip every summer. Well one summer, we were at the beach when one of the church elders asked me to accompany him into his hotel room with him. He asked me if I believed in God. I said yes. Then he asked me if I would do anything for God. I said yes. He asked if I had unfettered faith for God. I said yes. This is when he asked me to put a bandanna around my eyes and to start stripping my clothes. When I asked him why, he said I should just have faith. I was raped that night, all in the name of God.

    So yes, I know what it means to have faith in something that promises "unconditional love."














































    Actually, I'm just messing with you. Hail Satan!

    I've seen some pretty silly arguments here, from several sides of some issue (it seems to be bobbing and weaving). Faith is called faith because it is not entirely dependent upon rationality. That does not mean that rationality is no part of the equation, but people come to faith in different manners.

    I don't mind people questioning faith. I don't mind rational discourse. Emotional and personal attacks qualify as neither.

    Sheldon, that "week" thing is in relation to God creating the heavens & the earth. God clearly tells us that there was "evening" and there was "morning" (24 hrs) every day for six days, He rested on the seventh day. Seven days= one week, our time.

    But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.

    Hebrews 11:1 says.."Now faith is the reality of things being hoped for, the proof of things not being seen".

    Yes, I need a reality check.

    You believe in a book that says an invisible man in the sky created the world in a week. That the invisible man flooded it and put two of every animal on a boat. That he gave a man the power to split the sea in two. That he told the Jews to unapologetically slay their enemies, and then he makes a complete 180 a thousand years later and tells everyone to turn the other cheek and love one another. That he says he loves all of us and then allows evil and suffering to exist in the world. That he somehow is omnipotent and knows our thoughts and future thoughts, yet he for some reason insists on us praying to him. And that he magically manifested himself into a man in order to save us from a fiery realm he could easily destroy in an instant if he so wished.

    And I don't believe in fairy tales.

    Yes, I need a reality check.

    He doesnt believe in our "invisible man in the sky" but has no problem believing in the dark one (who happens to be a invisible man in hell)

    Hypocrite?
    Pathological liar??
    BOTH?!?!?

    I had not put you on ignore yet because some small part of me thought you were being genuine with your "I have real questions, I am just trying to make sense of this" I thought your attitude was breed of ignorance. But no more, as I said in another thread... Despicable!

    Please reel it in, Guys. You're playing right into his hands and reacting exactly like he wants you to! Don't counter attack...just ignore! Our invisible God can fight His own battles!
