this all seems based on the fact that human qualities can be applied to God.

then would you mind telling us why people don't have to sacrfice something every time they go to confetinols, or when praying for forgiveness. From what it sounds like forgiveing sins requires a sacrifece and since no one sacfices anything when they do the afrometniond things then that means they are not being forgivin and therefore your god isn't doing what you are claiming, forgiving sins.

You missed the entire point. The sacrifices of old (sheep, doves, ox and such) were practiced in place of Jesus but when Jesus came He was The Sacrifice to end all sacrifices.

not all sacrafices were used as an apesment to the gods back then. some where just offerings to natrue and the like to provide the people with food or other things not forgivness.

But what of that? As far as Christianity goes there is no need to make sacrifices anymore. But I don't know why other religions don't currently do if that has been their practice in the past.

I don't see why this doesnt stem to religion.

Seems the a lot of people interested in the animals would rather see humans die. This isn't good for religion unless you run one of those churches for animals.

Some people think that humans are the only species that matter; some that animals have more value than humans. Of course, both are wrong. Why does everything have to be so complicated? lol.

I think it's more like why do people always have to think in dichotomys?

The thing is is that everybody always thinks in terms of good and evil. They think only Black and White, never thinking of the greys.

I'm not saying that people don't believe in the middleness its just that they never show that they do. And whats the good in that?

middleness accomplishes stagnity and death. it keeps everything comfortable for neither going forward or backwards. First of all beliefs are a way for humans to find common ground for communication and acceptance. Yeah some people use mindless sheep to do there bidding but to trash a certian belief because you havn't thoroughly gotten it's entirenty, is like wiping you as* w/ your bare hands. It leaves a mess and it's a sh#tty way of doing things.

correctamundo! and why is this a bad thing. i'll tell ya why. because when you choose a 'beliefe' you are lying to yourself. you can nt choose to beleive you just do. and that makes you a liar. whats wrong with a liar, nothing if it doesnt make you a hippocrit. and becuase lying is a sin, most christians ar hippocrits. and ther are other ways of communicating (we are doing it right now). and the dependence is disgusting, its like the are smack addicts.

well looks like you got them out of order and the funny thing

is that it's written not spoken and you find away to

misconstrude what i've said BRILLIANT
Man has found out that if he stays in the middle to long it

creates a since of comfort,stability, staleness, and will bring

on middleaged crisis. For example here's america comfortable

jobs are great, we have not a care in the nothing can

happen to us our enemies are on the other side of the

world...omg peral harbor....omg 911 does that spell it out for

you. If you want to live on this earth you have to be proactive

because life is progessing everyday not staying in the middle

then you would be looking at a one world belief; if i couldn't

get off the path you followed and i was critized for that isn't

your statment hypocritical your belief. which brings me to the

next subjets. belief are not something you are born with it's

shoved down your throat from age 0- till you decide what

you want to belive in for example right now you belive that

you can't have a choose in what you belive please spend

sometime in reading what i wrote; instead of gettin a hard on

everytime i write a thread . I'm done with u awaken you call

me out just to say i used a bad metaphor... that's prob. the

only thing i can agree with you on. Grow some hair before you call me out....


Next thread. sorry i went off topic to all the other readers

Because if we aren't supposed to accomplish something then why are we alive? If you just sit content with indecision then you will learn nothing. Do you advocate ignorance?
