    You're not in a gun thread. You're in a religious thread. And don't wonder about religious forums. Go there and look.

    Because the forum rules allow it. The forum rules allow nearly anything in off-topic. And no, I'm not trying to impress anyone here, especially angry Atheists who are drawn to this like a crack-head. It's like an addiction for atheists. Christianity does not teach that one speaks to God in private only. Where do you get this private prayer nonsense? Churches are for public use? This site is for public use. This thread is specifically for public religious discussion. And one can loudly pray or profess their love of God in any publicly place without interference from government. You think praying before you enter the courtroom would be stopped by a court officer?
    .
    The questions still haven't been answered...
    1. If proof is required, prove you love your family.
    2. What happened to you? Most atheists aren't angry nor do they name-call and attack religion at every turn. It's the angry atheist nut that does that.

    TRUTH or TRADITION ?

    When we learn the truth of His birth, then it is upon each of us to decide whether to follow the truth of God, or follow the traditions of men.

    Good Morning Ringo, I received this yesterday from Mike Dennin, he is the co-founder of The American Patriot Council and a good friend.




    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL from Virginia
    Michael Dennin

    Christmas is many different things to different people. To Christians, it is the time to celebrate God's gift to humanity, His Son, whose teachings and sacrifice would lead all of God's children to eternal salvation. To the less religious, it is a time to gather together and celebrate the more secular traditions of our families and cultures. To the cynical, it is a time to attack religious belief and the crass commercialism associated with the holiday gift-giving and merriment. However, regardless of whether you are a believer or not, all of us have a reason to celebrate the birth of the most important and revolutionary figure in Western Civilization - Jesus of Nazareth.

    When we look at Jesus, we tend to think of him as a religious figure, and rightly so. However, our preoccupation with his divinity and the miracles associated with him make it easy to overlook the fact that Jesus is arguably the most important and influential humanist in world history. Consider this passage from Boris Pasternak's masterpiece Doctor Zhivago, where the Russian novelist speaks of the humanism of Jesus through the character of Zhivago's uncle Nikolay, a former priest who had himself unfrocked and later became a revolutionary idealist. In this conversation between Nikolay and his writer friend Ivan (which is notably absent from David Lean's beautiful film), Nikolay declares:

    "What you don't understand is that it is possible to be an atheist, it is possible not to know if God exists or why He should, and yet to believe that man does not live in a state of nature but in history, and that history as we know it began with Christ, it was founded by Him on the Gospels. Now what is history? Its beginning is that of the systematic work devoted to the solution of the enigma of death, so that death may eventually be overcome. This why people write symphonies, and why they discover mathematical infinity and electromagnetic waves. Now, you can't advance in this direction without a certain upsurge of spirit. You can't make such discoveries without spiritual equipment, and for this, everything necessary has been given us in the Gospels. What is it? Firstly, the love of one's neighbor - the supreme form of living energy. Once it fills the heart of man it has to overflow and spend itself. And secondly, the two concepts which are the main part of the make-up of modern man - without them he is inconceivable - the ideas of free personality and of life regarded as sacrifice. Mind you, this is all new. There was no history in this sense in the classical world. There you had the blood and beastliness and cruelty and pock-marked Caligulas untouched by the suspicion that any man who enslaves others is inevitably second-rate. There you had the boastful and dead eternity of bronze monuments and marble columns. It was not until after the coming of Christ that time and man could breathe freely. It was not until after Him that men began to live in their posterity and ceased to die in ditches like dogs - instead they died at home, in history, at the height of the work they devoted to the conquest of death, being themselves dedicated to this aim."

    This may come as a shock to the secular humanists who routinely disparage Christianity, but as Pasternak points out, not only was Jesus a humanist, he was the humanist who altered the trajectory of human history by radically elevating the status of the individual and his/her relationship to the secular powers that governed church and state. Central to Jesus' teachings and sacrifice was the revolutionary notion that the individual and the life of the individual were all important and valuable regardless of one's political, social and economic status. This is the highest and ultimate form of speaking truth to power, and it is this truth that Jesus was willing to die for to make clear and beneficial to all men. It is also this truth that our great country - the last crumbling bastion of individual freedom on the planet - was founded on, and it is Jesus' spirit of self-sacrifice that has likewise inspired those who have given the fullest measure of devotion to our country and what it stands for. Truly, these precious gifts and those who gave them to us are worth honoring and celebrating.

    And so I wish a Merry Christmas to All. May the spirit and blessings of this holiday fill you with love, joy and a renewed determination to preserve what Jesus and others like him have granted us, no matter how great and fearful the challenges we face. As long as that will and determination exists, hope and salvation spring eternal.
