Divine Being

Divine Being (12/17)

  1. Jesus said that the right way to pray was in private. Closet yourself is the term he used. Most people ignore that which shows just how well they follow their scapegoats advise. Regards DL
  2. I think it is but we do not define the word God the same way. Regards DL
  3. Ok. I find it useful to use against those who do give it authority. Do not translate that as me giving it authority, it has none, but it does have the odd bit of decent advice. Regards DL
  4. You would be surprised how few testings need alteration once put on a moral graph. Once your ideology is pointed in the right direction it is hard to reverse but easily directed in small increments. Regards DL
  5. Ah. I am all in for that. I call it seeking Gnosis. Regards DL
  6. Are you saying that what you and I do a lot of as described in these, is wrong? Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. You do not see those as good advice? Regards DL
  7. I put the Golden Rule as my number one guide because I have never found a better rule to live life by. That rule is also written as Harm/Care. Meaning how I should react to the harm or care that is directed to me. IOW, a reciprocity rule. I look at the issue at hand, apply my view of what I would like, all but one moral tenet I know are subjective, as you point out above, and go from there. Regards DL
  8. All the Gods are created by the thinking and words of immoral men, by todays standards, and all the Gods must die by the thinking and words of moral men. Have you noticed that Yahweh and Jesus are not promoted by moral men here and that it is the immoral men here who sing his praises? I have. Regards DL
  9. Logics, reason and the moral value of the tenet using the Golden Rule as my guide. This is how the ancients formed their arguments and I think it works quite well. Rabbi Hillel, the older contemporary of Jesus, said that when asked to sum up the whole of Jewish teaching, while he stood on one leg, said, "The Golden Rule. That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the Torah. And everything else is only commentary. Now, go and study it." Please listen as to what is said about literal reading. "Origen, the great second or third century Greek commentator on the Bible said that it is absolutely impossible to take these texts literally. You simply cannot do so. And he said, "God has put these sort of conundrums and paradoxes in so that we are forced to seek a deeper meaning." Even Christians are given that directive but as you can see from those here who say God is justified in his genocide of man and the murder of many innocents, they have not dared apply the Golden Rule to the actions of their genocidal God. Matt 7;12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets Regards DL
  10. Sure, Gods genocide of mankind was natural. You are turning out to be just as big of a joke as Dan. Not surprising as you both follow an evil God while calling him good. It is no wonder that Yahweh has been called the God of the blind. Regards DL
  11. So murdering a body is not killing in the spiritual sense. All murderers will love your words. And you call yourself religious. What a joke. Regards DL
  12. If Yahweh was in my presence, I would love it as I have a bullet with his name on it. All decent moral men do as all decent moral men would be well justified in killing such a poor and immoral God. Regards DL
  13. Absolutely. That is why this is in it. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. There is some wisdom in scriptures but most of it is lost on Christians because they do not know how to read or interpret it. That is not surprising as it is a consolidation of many older traditions. Regards DL
  14. There is some wisdom in the bible if you read it the way a Gnostic Christian does. Some individuals find ways that are quite immoral and to not care enough to try to help them find a better and moral path is not to follow the golden rule. If you were on the wrong path, would you not want someone to point it out? Oh. Here is wisdom from your bible, and you can even read it literally. Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. Regards DL
  15. I like this, but I hope you add in a bit of struggle against those who are directly doing evil, like most mainstream religions including Christianity and Islam do. For the evils of those homophobic and misogynous religion to grow, all good people need do is nothing. Regards DL
