Re: Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

hmm, are you sure? I think i could provide a pretty long list of things once thought evil, that now are not?[//quote] What people feel or think is good or evil is meaningless. They are objectively determinable and are states of being and both states are always present in every human being. From the...

Re: Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

I know, but was answering his position rather than him. Ah, ok. I wonder if it is advisable to be quite so gnostic? You don’t care to hedge your bets up there, even a little? I'm not being Gnostic at all. Good and evil are absolutes that are the same in all times and places. hmm, are you sure? I th...

Don't feed the trolls.
Gnostic Bishop Was quite full of himself, as most gnostics are, but at times he was able to make some pretty good points, imo anyway. Unfortunately he was so convinced of his infallibility that you couldn’t really discuss any of them with him, alas

Re: Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

To the Original poster, GD God did not condemn man to death and hell. Eve and Adam were exactly like Lucifer -they both betrayed him and rejected the earthly heaven of Eden. By their own treason they became subject to a "purgatory" of natural life rather than the supernatural life they ha...

Re: USA religious decline IS REAL

Very unfortunate, but here's the consequence of mad-dog Republicans politicizing religion. Tens of millions alienated, in short order. It only gets worse from here. I think some spirituality is necessary for most ppl, and very important to establish a foundational morality and shared value set, but...

The graph shows a slightly different date range (2007-2019 in the graph, ending in 2017 in the paragraph).

Re: The Biblical God is not infinite

Four is an arbitrary number indeed, but it is his whole story behind it that is so very worthy of reading, concise and to the point I see the gospel of Thomas not in the context of any religion, certainly not Christianity.
