Now you're getting it.

Everyone knows the keys to a successful religion are:

a) a terrifying hell for non-adherents in the afterlife
b) spreading of "the word" through force and intimidation
c) teaching/brainwshing your children with the same beliefs

The Christians did it, the Muslims did it, if you panentheists want to be taken seriously you're going to have to follow those steps, and a bit of violence is a good start.

I'm trying...

If you guys don't become panentheists, then you will be cast down into the boiling molten bottom of reality, where bad stuff happens. LOTS of bad stuff. Like, all the time.

Is that what you guys really want? Is it?

I didn't think so. Ergo, I am right.

line a....terrifying hell for non adherents in the aferlife.

Wow!!! Anyone knowing any Bible at all knows this applies to adherents as well as non adherents. But many ...even those who claim Belief...get it backwards. For Believers on meat and not milk..know that they deserve hell and damnation as well as anyone..and are not guaranteed that they will go to Salvation. Their Salvation is up to the Lord..not to them.

Interesting to me to see someone of logic and reason get it so wrong when they have obviously read more of the Word than many on these threads and specialize in trying to use/misuse it on others in confusion.

Very interesting phenomenon to observe in print.




line b...spreading of "the word" through force and intimidation

There is no such instruction to spread "The Word" through force and intimidation. "The Word" is spread through the Holy Spirit putting a good conscience towards God into a individual....to where they search out more of "The Word". Also they are brought before people who can teach them in process of time about " The Word" and how it applies in our daily lives.




line c...teaching/brainwshing your children with the same beliefs

This as compared to planting ones children in front of a television and movie screen many many hours a day ..or video games. A public school education. What religion is this one???The religion of the flesh?? For it is obviously a very devout belief system since it is so prevalent.


Interesting view Humphreys has posted here.

Thanks,

Missing one letter from a word in a typo is not quite the same as your train-wreck posts! :naughty:

You disagree that force and intimidation played a part in Christianity's rise?
