Pretty much everything you say is obvious error.

You really should consider seeking GOD for yourself, and not just taking some guys word for it.

I never said I wasn't Christian just that I'm not a member of any division or sect.

And I hate to tell you what you should already know; but an icon or idol is an image made by the hands of man. And what you speak of is idolatry, and specifically spoken against repeatedly in scripture.

The more I read that you post, the more obvious you make it that eastern orthodox is really close to being the whore of Babylon.

I really hope you come to your senses. But that won't happen unless you sacrifice that pride of yours.

Faith in selfless Unity for Good.

Jesus made a Church for you. You choose the Church made by a man that thaught you lies and based on these lies you attack the Church of Jesus Too bad. You don't believe me but Jesus defends his Church.
The exact same could be said to you.

1)not attacking any church
2) rebuking your personal doctrines.
3) nothing you have said in reference to your own, or my beliefs can be verified by scripture or the conscience. You don't see any problem with that?

Peace

Faith in selfless Unity for Good.

RE: Christianity for busy thinking people
Pasadi, you've been had. Orthodox priests have no actual divine power, only the power that believers like you give them by showing up at their churches and making donations to them.

If your god actually exists you would be no better off than the atheists, because a god that would create a hell is evil and not to be trusted. In fact, it could be sitting in its happy place right now, laughing heartily at your gullibility and imagining some horrific torture for you.

However, I do not think that hell exists. I think it's a story that priests made up a long, long time ago so that they could scare people into their churches. After all, what possible benefit could a god achieve by locking up lesser beings in a torture chamber? Think of it this way: Do you spend all day observing a leaf in a tree in a distant forest, smiling sadistically every time a bug takes a bite out of it or every time a forest fire burns down the tree?

No, if *I* were your god I would not have a hell. Regardless of what people believed or did not believe, I would do what I could to help them live the best possible life here on Earth. Their happiness is vastly more important than My feelings of being ignored, mocked or disbelieved by mortals.

(By the way, have you ever tried meditating on the physical universe instead of on a god? You get all the awe and wonder and beauty without any religious silliness.)

You can't prove it doesn't work so it does? That level of drivel? Christ you evangelists are all such dreary drips.

For some reason reading your reply reminded me of this video. It's one of my favorites and has deconverted many people since it's been on youtube. Of course, the optimal word is "intelligent person". Intelligence is what it takes to realize that christianity is total rubbish.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Do you exists? Never seen a peer revised paper speaking about you.

Within this thread I have not once asserted that I do in fact exist, however, whether I do or not is neither here nor there.
I will gladly discuss that issue at another time. We have other things brewing at the moment.

Can I take it to mean that you in fact to not have any published works on the phenomenon? If it is as common as you seem to believe, it should be no trouble. Finding papers displaying a positive correlation between receiving prayers and curing of disease would be as easy as finding game theory analysis papers.

RE: Christianity for busy thinking people
The site of PM Hatwater is not a reputable peer-reviewed journal -- It is a personal vanity site with ludicrous articles lacking in credible references.

A site called "psychicscience.org" is an oxymoron -- There is no such thing as "psychic science," just pseudo-science. Real science involves conducting experiments that any scientist can duplicate, not just making up silly hypotheses that can't even be tested properly due to the lack of stringent double-blind controls.

I continue to believe that near-death experiences prove only one thing: That some people hallucinate when in danger of dying.

To add to that, the 'psychicscience' Facepalm page linked lists 4 papers with 4 broken links.
