The problem with doing something to earn brownie points by doing good from my view point as a Christian is God knows my heart and there are no brownies for things done for selfish reasons. If a child carries out garage expecting to be given a dollar or two is one thing if a child carries out the garbage simply because he loves his parents that is another thing entirely
I agree with you.
But to do something out of love and to know that I also will be rewarded for that is entirely third thing. I like this third thing.

Ugh, I hate when Christians come to atheist forums and try to tell the locals what's what.
What does it have to do with me saying "I am blessed (something is good for me)"?
Why can't I say this on atheist forum?
How many theistic forums would ensure the same privilege ? None, you can say what you want but In the same breath you cannot also claim special privilege. # rather disgusted right now. :no:

I don't give a flying fuck if you say (or think) you are blessed.

Being blessed implies someone or some thing has "blessed" you. It does not mean "something is good" for you. It's a concept similar to a curse but not in a negative outcome sort of way..... if that makes sense.

So you can say it all you want, its meaningless bullshit to me.

"I am blessed" is another way to say "I have something that is good for me". Why do I say this? Because I believe it is true.

Aliza Wrote:Speaking strictly for myself here, it actually makes me feel uncomfortable
Oh well.

That is not the definition of the word blessed.

bless·ed
blest,ˈblesid/
adjective
adjective: blessed

1.
made holy; consecrated.

it is often used as a verb as sort of the inverse of a curse too
or as a noun meaning one who lives with god

.... I do multiple posts like that cause I haven't yet figured out how ya'll gather them all up the way you do. Also my weird ass brain I'm continually thinking of things to add (which is also why I have to force myself to stop editing posts after 2 minutes or I'll never stop editing and adding to my posts)
