You seem to look at Christians in a very 'flat' way, like a lot of Christians look at the bible themselves, you seem to take it very latterly(just like Jim Jones, and you dont want to be compared to Jimmie Jones=P). You can see god and Jesus as a person, yes. And you can take the bible latterly, yes. But that is not the only way one can believe in God and be a Christian. Being a Christian can mean a lot of things. It can also mean that you just live your live in a certain way.


It means nothing good to me. A distraction for when things get rough in life. Prayer yields little in terms of result.


okey, if that's what you want to believe and keep on believing than, I don't have anything to object to. For some people prayers can give one hope, and hope can lead to being calm and clear thinking (at times, not saying always). As long as you can understand that to some people religion can be.. something like a home, a place to belong.

I don't get much of what you are actually trying to state=P But I did research Jim Warren Jones, born in Lynn, Indiana. Who had a mother with an alcohol problem and a father who was very ill and probably very frustrated, having fought in WO I. And so I have one question for you... did you read the letter killeth? No? well then, talk to me again if you did because the letter killeth(written by Jim), is what happens when someone (like Jim Jones) takes the bible latterly.

Another ting, I only got Jimmie involved because he is one great example of someone taking the bible very latterly. and seeing religion as a flat thing, just like you guys. I'm not at all stating you ARE jim jones, and the mind behind 918 deaths.

Oh and if you do quote me again like this than, if you don't mind, please explain me the following terms:
1)no true Scotsman
2)political fallacy
3) OP
4)distinct conceptualization
5)logic fallacy
6)a poor character of judgment

If you are a person of good will, who wants to have a serious discussion with me (which consists out of interactions of thoughts, not in particular fighting each other), than please write what you would like to make clear in a CLEAR and simple way. So I will actually understand. If you think difficult words make you smart than you are awfully wrong, since you are not talking to someone who's first language is English.
Hey, English isn't my first language either. So what's your excuse for not understanding what I'm saying? When it's not my fault for being smart.

Furthermore, how can you even conduct sufficient research on a subject written in a language that you claimed that you don't fully understand? That's "logic fallacy".

And since I'm not Jim Jones, why did you even referring me akin to such individual when clearly I'm not. That's the "political fallacy" known as "no true Scotsman". And I was kind enough to hyper-link that information in my "OP"/original post.

Finally, if you lack the logic to understand the distinct conceptualization of Christians, then you're a poor character of judgment due to your ignorance. And if you still don't understand what they all mean, then look them up.

Belong where? A house of mirrors? Looking back on yourself and your own deeds with revile? I don't think I want that. Self-deceit is misery, since people end up with unrealistic expectations.

And even when the Bible can get human family value all wrong, just how fallible can the concept of God be? When it has all the negativeness and fallacy of those who followed Him since biblical time.

You both don't want us to use the Bible as a source of knowledge, and, yet, you would ideally prefer it if we believed in it? How does this work out?
