our body is holy...as said in the bible., we should keep it holy and treasure it.... not hurt it!!..

Sorry for sounding ignorant but, what are they? Why do they do that?


it's a ritual thingy in the phils every holy week.. men whip themselves and walk barefooted on the streets..
and at some provinces, they even nail themselves on the cross..
they call it their sacrifices..

I`ve never seen people in my town or anyone doing that and I`m not interested. Let them fool themselves.

Does it say in the bible that if you torture yourself, God will forgive you?
I don't know if it does..
but it's actually stupid... I mean, it's considered a sin to self-injure, right?



First of all, I don't read the Holy Bible anymore.
And I'm not them so don't ask me.
I'm just saying what I know based from their point of view.
I think it's their own way of atoning themselves from the sins they've committed.
I just thought of it as their way of punishing / setting their own punishment to atone.
We all have different beliefs anyway.

And while you think it is stupid, they don't.
I neither do. Because I respect others' beliefs.
I tend not to interfere with their own business too.
Unless their very existence becomes an inevitable threat to my boring life.

Lawl.

IMO, I respect other religions but to the point where you have to hurt yourself/someone is when it's stupid.
You CAN ask God for forgiveness as long as you are asking sincerely (as said by my teacher who is a Catholic).
Because what I DO know is that in most holy books, we must always take care of ourselves as our body is holy.

Having your sins forgiven is easy: kill, rape and pillage then punish yourself during the Holy Week. Wash and rinse.

no, i think they've done horrible sins/crimes in the past that they do that in the first place... plus they don't think that their sins would be forgiven, they only hope for a lighter punishment (interviewed one)...
