Re: The Good Person Test


Repent what? Be saved from what? I'm not being threatened so that I need saving.

And what does this mean:

Apparently, it's really convicting some of your consciences.

Re: The Good Person Test


Repent of your sins I think Mo - and maybe be dunked in water so that you are reborn. Not my religion at all I'm afraid but each to their own.

I don't say much about my beliefs because I prefer usually to read everyone else's different views and opinions. In my church you are born once and once only and that's when you come into the world. You are baptised as a baby when adults make promises on your behalf to see to your spiritual well being in the church until you are old enough to make up your own mind, at confirmation. I don't want to get into a long discussion here though ...

Re: The Good Person Test


And who decides what those sins are?

If you live according to the laws of your land, live in peace and harmony with the people around you, do as much good as you can and don't do anything to hurt another living being, what sins are you committing?

And who are the sin police?

And if you aren't committing any sins, why should you repent and of what are you supposed to repent? And to whom?

Again this is inane nonsense.

Sin police? Dunno - self-appointed I suppose, but I haven't ever come across them!

Re: The Good Person Test


I don't normally advocate this, but Mel looks like he needs a reality check. Mel, this might not get through to you, but I'm going to try anyway for your sake, as well as for the sake of anyone you may be influencing elsewhere, where we're not around to refute what you say.

Mel,

You are so brainwashed, you can't even think for yourself. This is what makes people like you dangerous to society. It's not Christianity, per se, but the organized spread of ignorance, which is caused by fundamentalist (blindly following without thinking at all for yourself when it concerns your) religion of all kinds, whether it's Christianity, Islam, or any other variety/sect of religion that advocates blind faith over logic.

This is why you are always met with opposition, Mel. You convince yourself that you have all the answers, then get on your self-righteous high horse and start judging people, when you are being far less "Christ-like" than most atheists I know. Judge not, lest ye be judged. In other words, live and let live, and whatever happens will happen. It's out of your hands, Mel, so why do you keep trying? It didn't work at Illusia, and it's not going to work here. But hey, keep showing your fundamentalist nonsense here, so we can keep pointing out all the holes, and anyone who might have been a fence-sitter will see that we're right and stay away from your kind. So yes, please stay and keep it up, Mel, because you are beautifully demonstrating why people need to think critically about everything they are told, using logic to determine right from wrong, fact from fiction, science from pseudoscience, and everything else that comes up in their day to day life.

You claimed that Jesus took away the commandment for keeping the Sabbath, and yet, here you are including it in your "good person test." Please explain how this does not contradict itself, because anyone who can think logically, can see the contradiction.

quote:

Killing in war is different than murder.



Tell that to the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Tell that to the mothers of the little children who suffer and die every day in Iraq because of us... Or is all of that OK to you? Do you consider it OK to slaughter innocent children, as long as we are ravishing a country in search of terrorists who weren't even there when we first attacked?

quote:

Mo said:

Rape is not judged by moral laws but by the laws of a country. In Africa for example, white people introduced the concept of rape; among some of the indigenous people of Africa, rape does not exist, it is considered the correct thing for a woman to give in to any man who asks. The only law that applies is that of the husband, if a man rapes an unmarried woman, her father is obliged to insist that he marry her but if he rapes a married woman, she has no recourse, her husband does and he can claim restitution, sometimes death or sometimes cattle and a public authority, depending on the laws of the region.
In Sharia law, a man is not guilty if he rapes a woman, but she is.



This all sounds a lot like the Old Testament. Wow, what a great morality teacher that thing is, huh? Oh, and let's not forget, Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, and the rest of the "righteous men" were all portrayed as adulters, and don't get me started on Lot, who was sober enough to get it up and stick it into his daughters... or so the story goes. Maybe this is why alcohol is so frowned upon in a lot of churches, to keep the followers ignorant of the fact that, any man who is sober enough to get it up is going to know what he is doing. It's as simple as that, but you probably won't understand it anyway.

Now, Mel, you may be ignorant, and you may be letting faith cloud your sense of logic, but that does not automatically make you stupid. I personally don't know if you're stupid or not, because the only posts I have ever seen you make all appear to be attempts at converting people, which as I said, isn't going to happen as long as there are people around to refute your attempts at arguments. If Rick converts people, oh well, at least he doesn't teach bigotry and hatred, but I will stay on your butt and point out every little flaw if I have to, if it means saving people from your particular flavor of religion.

There might be hope for you, but you have to do the work if you're going to lose the ignorance. Take a critical thinking course, learn the scientific method, heck, take up coding! Anything to exercise those logic centers in your brain that have apparently been hibernating. As they say, use it or lose it! I really hope you will decide to use it, and I will be happy to help you out if you ever decide to make the attempt.
