With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. – Steven Weinberg
All men and women are wicked. Good only comes from God; therefore any thing which is actually Good, is of God. Howbeit man and woman would like to take credit for any good to which they would do. To do so is Pride. God hates Pride, and we as a people are filled with Pride.
Belief in the supernatural reflects a failure of the imagination. – Edward Abbey
I disagree, because if God were not so, it certainly took a Great Imagination to produce Him.
A man is accepted into a church for what he believes and he is turned out for what he knows. – Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain)
pause, giggle, I agree, and I do not understand why this would be under ‘Atheist Quotes’.
it just goes to prove to us Christians the Religious Church has NOT changed… and will Not change, and that even among they who are not religious, nor are they for Christ, do actually see the Hypocrisy of Religion. To their misfortune, it is sad they do not see the Difference between following after the Heart of God, and knowing that even Christ had some serious issues with Religion… and too that in the Imagination of the Mind the Two were accounted as the same.
26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridle not his tongue, but deceive his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself un-spotted from the world.
honestly now, if it looks like the World , smells like the World , acts like the World, it is probably going to have the taste of the World, and that is good for Worldly people. these are people who seek after their own pleasure/desire, and c’mon people the Lord tells us ‘we are not of this World, but are Aliens and Strangers to the World. We live here, but we are to be separate from the World. Why? Because God is called: a Holy God. He is separate from that which man sees as good for himself; just as Eve saw what was good for herself, and shared it with her husband. Even as this was happening in the Garden, God took charge over what He created, and He continues to take charge over His created. Things are as they should be until He has had His fill, and when it is overflowing He is going to pour that fill UPON THIS EARTH.
I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. – Susan B. Anthony
again I pause, giggle, and agree, and do not understand why it would be included in ‘Atheist Quotes’.
just as I hear the resounding ‘ God told me today: God Job!’, and ‘I was so proud that God was proud of me today’. Honestly this causes my eye to twitch.
people are not hearing the voice of God… they are hearing their own voice saying those things. this glorifies man/woman; not God. In the Book of Samuel God calls out to Samuel. Samuel had not been use to hearing the voice of God… by means of actually hearing the voice of God. No, this wasn’t someone in the house calling to him, nor was it the voice inside his head, and it was not the ‘am I going mad because now I am hearing voices’ syndrome, and they are telling me what to do. This voice was God’s voice, and it is recorded that Samuel had not been use to hearing God’s voice. And with this voice came a Word to be spoken, and as Samuel heeded to do as the voice told him, all that was Spoken came true. This was the beginning of Samuel the Prophet.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. – Richard Dawkins
should he be given an applaud for impressive language skill?
I believe if a true christian read this, it may feel as if a sharp dart penetrated their heart. What it does to me is prove what God states in His Word… pride blinds us, and unless God removes those scales we cannot see Him as a Just God. Anger, and Mockery causes one to thrash accusation again God.
It will yet be the proud boast of women that they never contributed a line to the Bible. – George W. Foote
and it is the proud boasting of men who enjoy blaming the woman for causing man to fall. – my quote.
one of things I truly love about God is this: having a talk with man and saying: “I repent”. It is hard for me to think God in His pure of Heart could actually repent of His doings. Like when He creates man, and then man became so violent He destroys all that moved upon the earth; except for Noah and his family. God was moved to destroy; yet also was moved to preserve. Maybe this is why people have a hard time seeing the whole picture to which God has planned, before He even created an image in Himself.
We must remember: that which is created in the image of self can never be exactly like the Original. There are always differences… may seem the same, but there are differences. And since God is Perfect, how could that which was created be perfect like Him? He who is Perfect, would have to manifest Himself in the created in order for the created to be Perfect. Because, if by His own standards that which was created need be exactly as those standards made Himself to be Perfect, then those standards would have to apply to the created.
I sat and listened to a Rabbi on video about how he can prove that Jesus was, and is, and will never be the Messiah. He also teaches his classes that we Christians and Scholars misinterpreted the early scrolls of writing and devised a New Testament.
Don’t get mad, or angry, or even think it is alright for him, because he is Jewish. He really knows NOT what he is doing, because he is blind. One can only pray for him that his eyes would be opened while he reads the Word and is determined to again Falsely Accuse Jesus.
