  1. Pat, I've seen people answer your questions with "The Internet" and with The Bible. I would recommend the Bible, as well as finding people in RL who are Christians andd people you admire that you could talk to. To the people talking about how the Bible is biased, lets be honest, the Internet is kinda controlled by athesiest, making it biased the other way.

    To the people with church horror stories: There are many churches out there, too many, that are hypocrititical, and do not operate based on the word of God. And these churchs are obviously a stone in the path of many. But, to condem Christianity because of these chruches is a mistake. This is like eating a rotten apple and then deciding that all apples suck. Look around, and try to find a chruch, or even just a small community, that is living by the word of God. Please don't judge all of us by the some of us.

    Finally, to the people saying that all religions are equal, and all that stuff. That belief is counter-Christianity. We believe that there is one true God, Jesus is His son, and that the only way to Heaven is through Him. Yes, I know, you're probably already planning your disagreeing response, but that is Christianity. If the Christian is living like Christ, this does not mean we hate all gays, atheists, non-believers, etc. But it does mean that we are going to disagree with you. Sorry bout that.

  2. Yeah I liked the quote enough to actually add it to my signature. Did it about 3 hours ago. It will stay there forever. A true testament of the goal of EMC.
  3. As a christian myself my viewpoint is that everyone deserves to be loved and respected, no matter what they have done or whether or not they hate us. This unconditional love is given by Jesus Christ.

  4. I personally have no idea what I believe. I love science and so I believe that, but then there is religion and it just becomes confusing. I don't want to offend anyone but I wonder if all religions are like the one in this book?
  5. I'm a lover of science, Jesus and ice-cream.

  6. Just going to throw this out there...
    If you erroneously believe in God, you lose nothing (assuming that death is the absolute end), whereas if you correctly believe in God, you gain everything (eternal bliss). But if you correctly disbelieve in God, you gain nothing (death ends all), whereas if you erroneously disbelieve in God, you lose everything (eternal damnation).---Pascal's Wager.

  12. Just going to say I don't believe in god, or Jesus or whatever, but I go to a joint faith high school, and have grown up in a Catholic family, and I can safely say that 'god', if he is real, doesn't send atheists to 'hell'. People who have repeatedly done bad things go there.

  13. that is NOT what the Bible says. The Bible says that if you refuse to belive, you go to Hell. If you have done something horrible and pray for forgivness and truly mean it, then you will go to heaven.
  14. That's the thing...there are those of us who believe, worship, follow what is written while actually having a life and loving people who are different who don't get why "He hates people so much." Then you have those who are so intolerant and "holier than thou" who do nothing but rage and make huge scenes that give everyone a bad name. Those people offend me.

  15. well i just watched this video and it made me think. I do love all you guys as a MC family and in christ, even though it may not look like it
  16. The problem I have with religion is that it does not fit with the modern world. All the scientific evidence to show the world was not created by god is too strong. And that homosexuality is bad, it is just another part of the human race. And because of all this I just can't find a way to believe it.
  17. and i support that 100%. even though i don't agree with you, i respect your choice
