A pat on the head, is waiting for you Michael. Come into the light, and see the truth, it is better than heaven :)
Doesn't it depress you, talking war up, about who is going to slay whom - knowing full well, that their only problem, was where they were born.
@Michael - You talk of spiritual healers, if those who use them claim they work, what problem have you with that.
This statement shows how gullible you are. Do you also believe in crystals, homeopathy, and do you believe in tithing, to keep these very wealthy religions with their huge buildings and hierarchy in the lifestyle they have become accustomed.
The operative word here, is CLAIMED - I have often wondered why any xian goes to a Doctor or hospital - they just aren't praying hard enough? And geez, wouldn't that save the country a lot of money!
Spiritual stuff just doesn't work, people who claim they do, are charlatans and soothsayers- and going to Africa , that is when you REALLY know they are liars and CHEATS. The ones who do believe in spiritualism are superstitious to begin with, and are easy prey, I understand why, especially in third world countries, they are easily taken in, they WANT to believe in an afterlife, because their life is so shit.
Unless people show their credentials while fleecing the locals - how can YOU believe it.
I am not the medical board allowing the synergy. I am simply stating what the medical board did without judgment.
@Michael - What do YOU think about xians going to doctor or hospital, or having operations? Do you think xians could do just as well, by staying home and praying?
100% of what the world knows to be a Christian is unfortunately a casualty of the Roman/ Byzantium falsehood and is deceived. Thus any of these that rely on faith without having their lives right with God are threading on dangerous ground. God is gracious but he does not endorse falsehood.
Yet God is merciful in many instances.
Rome is dead, Italy nearly bankrupt, and Byzantium is barely a memory in ancient history books. You're living in a world that no longer exists, Michael.
BTW, which god would that be? Zeus, Odin, Amurru? I have a list that would extend past the capabilities of this page to hold - to which invisible sky creature could you possibly be referring?
"Rome is dead, Italy nearly bankrupt, and Byzantium is barely a memory in ancient history books. You're living in a world that no longer exists, Michael."
To the contrary, in direct fulfillment of the prophecies, The Roman Empire and Byzantium are on the rise. I have spoken volumes on this site about the EU, its expansion eastward, its common currency, (the first time since Emperor Diocletian and the eminent assimulation of Turkey, the former land mass of Byzantium. This despite its fall to the Sultanates and Turks Constaninople has remained the spiritual center of the Orthodox Church. Both Rome and Constantinople are the two horns of Chrisian Roman Empire.
Collectively, this cities still rule over 1.5 billion people, spiritually. the temporal power is returning, even as we speak.. It was no accident that the EU was forged by the Treaty of Rome.
Still fearful, Michael - No god to love or hate - no ghosts, no prophesies, no angels, no talking snakes -
No god to be neutral, or anything else, actually. Just sad people who believe violence is the way forward, war is inevitable. I am not fussed by what any one believes or not believe, it is when it overflows into my life, that it is an affront to me.
Did your parents hide from you when you were a child, just so you would have 'faith' in their existence. Not just words from a translated book, or words in your head - proof, is needed.
RE: "Did your parents hide from you when you were a child, just so you would have 'faith' in their existence." - good one! So good, I just may steal it --
I have walked into some very wild places in my time that should of had fairies, but did not, upon general inspection. How pure of heart must one be before they become visible? Do they like HOHOs?
If they don't, can I have theirs?
@James Cox - I don't see fairies, but I do see a lovely White Unicorn - so I must be very pure of heart :) or else, someone is stealing my stash.
