there is too much god on tv. every time i change a channel, they are chatting about god

i dont believe in god, and i dont trust anyone who uses god as an excuse for their activities.

To believe in God is one thing. But to believe that God himself controls everything (which could include ourselves) is another. Bah, Im a bit too tired to discuss right now because I am a bit tired so I will try to keep it short. Claiming how God guides your life is just as much as debating about the Free will VS. Determinism subject.

Thanks for bringing up the subject, George. The old philosophy forum was wayyy too much with politics and not enough of the religion/sociology/philosophy

in my opinion, god makes himself obvious to everybody in different ways, it is up to the individual to recognize him. unfortunately it becomes much more difficult with human interference. a decadent society and a liberal cultural revolution are destroying religion here in america.

The other night, I saw an evangelist infomercial, where the "healer" gave this old black lady the power to get up and walk (how original).

Unfortunately, the power of God could not remove THE MUSTACHE THAT SHE HAD. I'm serious, it was a full-on mustache. Not just some whiskers here and there.

So where's your God now?

ITA,

"a decadent society and a liberal cultural revolution are destroying religion here in america."

Churches are doing enough damage on their own. Their have to bear the majority of the responsibliity.

Just look at the Catholics right now. It's awful.

.....I understand your point though.

jixby hit pretty close to the truth as far as i am concerned.

i just cant believe that there is some special magical thing waiting to help me. there are just too many bad things that i have seen or have happened to me for me to believe. every bad situation i have been in i have worked my ass off to get out of. no one, with the exception of a few family members and friends has helped me. no divine intervention, nothing.

i dont feel sorry for myself, but i have learned to rely on myself. there is no magic government, or jesus, that can make things better, only people can do that. and from what i have seen, i believe that there is a thin layer of civilization, over a boiling pot of insane in this world.

and it scares me when my government is telling me to rely on the magic man to fix things when they take over a third of my paycheck as payment for THEM to do their fucking job.

Bush never said that GOD should take the place of govt.'s responsibility.

He and many other Americans are Christian. The American public knew that when he was running for office. Why should he now stop being himself just because he's president?

" every bad situation i have been in i have worked my ass off to get out of. no one, with the exception of a few family members and friends has helped me. no divine intervention, nothing. "

I think you see the flaw in that.

You would have no way of knowing if GOD helped you or not anyway......unless you had that relationship.

Personally I believe in God, but I can see why someone like George might not.

I believe in God to help me get through the day and persist with my goals. I pray a lot, even if s/he doesn't always come through for me. But unlike Jerry Falwell or Ronnie, I don't take offense to people who don't. What works for me doesn't necessarily work for everyone.

Oooooh! Naldo's hinting at one of them there "Road to Damascus" type experiences.

I believe in God. I'm not sure to what extent God believes in us.

What exactly are you watching?

What I see on TV is all about the god called Myself.

It preaches what is good for you must be right. Fast, cheap sex (even though we know that is dangerous). Your parents are stupid and out of touch because they try to limit you. Possessions make you happy. All that matters in the end is if you are comfortable and have the most stuff.

I most certainly believe in God. But I am quite sick about hearing about how God is on OUR side, on the American Team. God is not on our side, he is on EVERYONE'S side.

I agree.

It's whether or not WE are on GOD's side.

I was kind of surprised about that too, until I remembered that I'm actually an evil clone sent by the Raelians from the future to kill you all.
