I know a lot of people who believe in something because of that, and that is better to believe in something than nothing at all. It gives people some sort of, i don't no, protection i guess... :-)
I agree, for some people its a lot easier to go though life with the thought of being guided than by something greater than you rather than knowing you are alone. Its an unsettling and depressing thought to many so they turn to religion just take away some of the pressure i guess. It grounds you, you stop floating aimlessly around the universe not knowing where to go.

Ive felt like this too which one reason i started studying religion. I'm not an Atheist, rather agnostic, the thought of being alone does scare me a little. Feels like "what's it all for then?" The idea that some is someone out there watching you is a huge comfort to some.

Wow. There you have it, my first post ever.

(It is not a concept I am familiar with.)

Well, some people are angry with God and want nothing to do with God. They hate the very thought of God.

That's why I think there has to be a place for them where God is absent.

I remember seeing a movie about a mother and daughter who were waiting for the end of the world. They waited in the desert for a long time and the child died. The mother was arrested and became very bitter. Then the end of the world did come and the bars fell off the doors and the prisoners went free. Her little girl appeared to her and told her mom to just say she loved God, and she could go to heaven. But the mother wouldn't say it. At the end, she stood in darkness....forever, I guess.

Getting back to the topic, although Pagan, I have no problems with the teachings of Jesus, they are good general rules to live by.

My problem lies with the Dogma of the Church/es, their Crusades and Inquistions and the general intolerance of the majority of their followers. They appear too frightened to go out, learn what non-Christians believe, and then speak from a position of experience. They blanket condemn all who don't agree with their particular blinkered world-view. Sad, really.

Ahh, Dogma.

Love the movie

Hate the real stuff, I don't know, I guess I think that things change over time. Maybe that is the biggest fault of us Christians, we get too comfortable and find it hard to change...

Or maybe it is just a fault of humanity.

Humanity is a fault in its self. The mear fact that we try to explain things we cant just makes it worse. :-(

Oh, but they DO. We had a few here, middle of last year. In fact, if I am not mistaken THIS thread was started by one of them.

They appeared to be using it as a training ground.

They are ONLY to willing to listen and learn...and go away and concoct lies about what we have suppossedly said.

They did not last long, pity really, I was enjoying the fun.

I am just off to sharpen my axe now, and get rid of these nasty sticky patches on the blade. They've dripped all down my arm. Mummy will smack me for that. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

MAny people do, I guess it is all perspective.

I do however think that represents only a small portion of Seventh Day adventists.

There are two things to be said about that:

1) why would it be a desirable thing to be part of a group that thinks that (whatever this antichrist thing might be)?

2) a study of history would make it obvious that without the papacy there would be no seventh day adventists. So what does that make them?

I can take that a step further and also say that Demon's and The like are created by Christians for their own intents and purposes, I know Angels exist but I believe they are more Fairy like then anything, Christians just took Fairies and made them look like angels.

A friend of mine pointed this out too me, Look at a picture of Jesus and tell me who does he look like??
