Something worth beliving in..


If anybody actually just read what is written than they would know that we aren't bound by the law. We are forgiven. That doesn't mean to go and do wrong. It just means that as long as you believe that Jesus is lord then you shall have eternal life. I am not saying this thread is religious bashing. I'm saying that religious threads bring in religious bashing and I'm sick of it. Would I make fun of somebody for believing in ghosts or the flying spaghetti monster. Counter question. Are you trying to convince me that making fun of people is ok and good? You said it yourself that it's not a nice thing to do. Christians are supposed to act like Christ. The religion is essentially WWJD or what would Jesus do? No. I shouldn't make fun of people but I might and for this I am forgiven. That doesn't mean it's good. People often seek out to make fun of religion as a hobby. They think it's a funny joke. It's bullying. There aren't whole sites where people go and spend all there time making fun of people who believe in ghosts. Are there nutjob Christians as you call them? Yes. I however have no right to judge them or anyone else as I too do bad things and if they truly believe Jesus is lord then they too shall have eternal life. People make mistakes. People use the good laws of God for evil. In fact in the bible it states that even Satan does this. He does what he can to make Christianity look evil.

first of its not about making fun of PEOPLE... but a belief, as there is much crazy things believe either it being your father, mother, sister, brother.. etc..
To some degree its not bad... but that is to a sensable line.... again everyone draws that line shorter then others.... that is annoying when its so short you can't even discuss things.

Also who are they bullying as long they keep you out of it while focusing on the belief that you hold?

+ that the forgivness and punishment system of religion can be a issue, as every single person got their own verison of it.
where REAL "laws and rules" comes in handy.

What is a good judgement?


God judges according to the heart, so a good judgment is one that is made with intent to grow closer to God. It may not be perfect, it may not even be correct, but if it is made out of love, then God will help things along.


i love ur answer, so do u believe u have good judgement? or do u think ur still looking for that good judgement?? what do u do to improve urself? or do u just go with the flow?


I judge myself by certain standards. I try to live up to them, and that helps me to have good judgment and to improve myself. Like serving others, being kind and generous, spending time with family, etc. But I don't always live up to everything that I try to live up to. Trying is what matters. So yeah, I do think I have good judgment...far from perfect judgment, but it's good enough to help me be better each day.

It's obvious, say, the Christian God doesn't exist, because that's just ridiculous. Ever tried to read any of the Old Testament? There are pages and pages about testicles. Literally. Most organised religion seems to be a form of delusion. I guess I'm not completely against spirituality though, people claim to have reached altered states of mind through meditation/religion etc. and that doesn't seem dogmatic enough to outright reject.

I believe in the Abrahamic God, of the Judeo origin. Many people around the world try to disprove the existence of God, yet to me God shows His existence all around us we just have to look for it.

Romans 1:20 (NASB)
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

Now for people saying that man/humans wrote the bible. Yes they have, yet as scripture points out it was inspired by God himself.

2 Timothy 3:16(NASB)
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness

Yet not all of human kind will see God or get to know him as scripture points out also.

John 6:44(NASB)
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.

But for those that seek Him he can be found, we just have to search for him.

Deuteronomy 4:29(NASB)
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.

Isaiah 55:6-7(NASB)

Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

I'm not saying people can't discuss it. It's good to discuss it. It's when people lose respect of the subject that problems arise. People often bring in insults to religious discussion. On this very site I've been called scum for being a Christian. That is what I don't like. Just last week somebody made a thread solely for the purpose of religious bashing. It's not about people making fun of people. It's people making fun of my religion. The thing I consider most important to myself. If you knew people were out there making fun of what you hold most dear you wouldn't be happy about it but what can you do about it?

Of course not, I belong to an actual religion. Only atheists talk about Hell and the Old Testament, as if they think either exists.

Remember what scripture says:

John 15:18-20(NASB)

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

Matthew 5:11-12(NASB)

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

We as followers of Christ should love one another, no matter if the world bashes us or not. How can we be the lighthouse on a hill if we don't show love and charity?

You need to explain yourself better or you're just wasting your time.
