However there are many more, for example, The Amish, The Brethren, Children of God, Christadelphians, Christian Science, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), Community of Christ, Eastern Orthodox churches, The Family, Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Polygynists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, LDS Restorationists. Messianic Judaism, The Process, Progressive Christianity, Quakers, Community of Christ, Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Unification Church, Unitarian-Universalism, United Pentecostal Church International, Unity School of Christianity, Urantia Book, Worldwide Church of God, The Way International, to name just a few!
Which one do YOU followc… The one that you were born into and brainwashed with of course! I am now, as of this writing, seventy five years old. I was brought up as a Jew and was forced by my mother to go to the synagogue every Saturday. I was also sent to a Jewish school. As a child I tended to have a very logical mind and found it very difficult to accept something that could not be convincingly demonstrated to me. I was badgered with God punishes the bad and rewards the good, yet in real life this just didn’t seem to happen. The straw that broke the camel’s back occurred when I was about thirteen years old. A young cousin of mine was knocked off his bicycle and killed. The whole family gathered for his funeral as the local rabbi began his spiel. And if we ask God and we have no right to ask God, he began. Why he took this little boy. Perhaps he needed an innocent lamb by his side in heavenc
What a load of cobbler’s, I remembered thinking. There are zillions of innocent lambs available! I walked away from the funeral and from religion.
SO WHICH SYSTEM IS THE CORRECT ONEc
Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God.
Jews and Muslims don’t believe that at all
Catholics worship the Virgin Mary…Jews don’t
Christians can eat pork
Jews cannot eat pork, crab, shrimp, oysters, snails, rabbits etc
Muslims believe that Muhammad was God’s messenger
Catholics cannot eat meat on Friday
Hindus consider the cow holy and cannot kill or eat one
Jews have to install a special little Hebrew scroll on every doorpost in their home and the men have to pray with one in a little box strapped onto their heads
Christians believe that Jesus is going to return to earth
Muslims cannot eat pork
Christians have to kneel to pray
Jews have to keep all plates and cutlery used to serve meat separate for any others
Muslims have to bow down and face Mecca
Muslims and Jews have to have their animals killed a special way before eating them
Jews have to cover their heads
Catholics can confess their sins to their priest and have them forgiven
If a dog licks a Muslim, he has to wash seven times
Jewish and Muslim men have to be circumcised
Each religion of course believes that theirs is the correct one and non believers will not go to heaven. Throughout history they have always slaughtered anyone who disagrees with them.
Seen those pretty sketches of Adam and Eve in biblical booksc If they had existed at all, they would have looked very much like apes. However, consider this: here we have Adam and Eve who had two sons. Where did the next generation come fromc Did Eve have sex with one of the sonsc Did Adam and Eve have a daughter who then had sex with Adam or one of the sonsc However you look at it, it was incest. What a great way to start the human race. No wonder there are so many idiots in the world!
Christian leaders try to convince the young to abstain from sex. Now, if we did not evolve from animals but were created by an all knowing God, why would he cause a girl of nine or ten to start menstruatingc That is a sign that she is producing eggs and that her body is ready for childbirth. So preaching abstinence is actuality going against God’s design. If there was a God who did not wish for people to have sex until they married, then he would have made it a horrible experience that men and women had to put up with in order to start a family. Another item for you to think about: if we did not evolve from animals, why do we have claws and furc You can call them nails and body hair but A rose by any other name is still a rose.
Christianity and Islam teach “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Do you see any examples of them following this credoc
Christianity, Islam and Judaism teach “Thou shall not kill.” What a joke!” They seem to do very little else!
All the major religions teach “Love thy neighbour.” You could have fooled me!
As there is no evidence of the existence of any gods, the faithful will grab at any straw so that they can claim to have seen a sign or a miracle…The face of Jesus on a piece of toast or a rusty refrigerator: the image of the Virgin Mary on a griddle: a light which is reflected from a church chandelier and moves across the wall etc etc. They are so gullible that they will follow anyone proclaiming that they are in touch with some divine entity, however outrageous the claim or how crooked the claimant is.
EVANGELISTS. The only bigger idiots than evangelists are those who send money to them! Here are a few examples of where your money goes.
A probe into the finances of six televangelists who preach a “prosperity gospel reported lavish lifestyles by televangelists including: fleets of Rolls Royces, huge palatial mansions, private jets and other excesses. These luxuries were purportedly paid for by television viewers who donate due to the ministry’s requests for tithes. The six under investigation were Kenneth Copeland and Gloria Copeland of Kenneth Copeland Ministries of Newark, Texas; Creflo Dollar and Taffi Dollar of World Changers Church International and Creflo Dollar Ministries of College Park, Ga; Benny Hinn of World Healing Center Church Inc. and Benny Hinn Ministries of Grapevine, Texas; Eddie L. Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and Bishop Eddie Long Ministries of Lithonia, Ga; Joyce Meyer and David Meyer of Joyce Meyer Ministries of Fenton, Mo; Randy White and Paula White of the multiracial Without Walls International Church and Paula White Ministries of Tampa.
Here are some other bible thumpers, charged with sexual, violent and financial crimes:
Tony Alamo, Matthew F. Hale, Warren Jeffs, Luc Jouret, Jung Myung Seok, WilliamKamm, Ervil LeBaron, Alice Lenshina, Jeffrey Lundgren, Charles Manson, Shukri Mustafa, Fred Phelps, Douglas Porte, Swami Premananda, Jacques Robidoux, Paul Schfe, Roch Thriault, Yahweh Ben Yahweh, Dwight York, Jim Bakker, Hogen Fukunaga, Mary Sue Hubbard, Henry Lyons, Sun Myung Moon, Edward Morrissey, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh later called Osho, L. Ron Hubbard.
So, don’t forget to keep up your donations!
MIRACLES. There are no miracles from God! Let’s take Lourdes as an example. Out of the thousands of miracles claimed, the church has decided that around 67 were in fact miracles, basically because they cannot come up with any other explanation. Some of the purported cures were later reversed. An interesting fact here is that the fourteen year old girl who started the Lourdes nonsense suffered from asthma which stayed with her until her death!
I personally performed hypnosis for many years and I am very aware of the power of the mind over the body. When I was a young boy, my sister developed a tumor on the brain. One of the top surgeons in the UK was ready to operate of her and stated that he would have to remove the optic nerve in the process, making her blind. Father refused surgery. A few months later, the tumor dissipated and sister regained her health. That was sixty years ago and she is still going strong. If we had been in Lourdes, it would have been called a miracle! What about the millions of sick people who travel there every single year looking for a cure from their loving and benevolent God,. only to return home in the same sick conditionc Do you hear of anyone going to Lourdes with one arm and returning home with twoc Now THAT would be a real miracle!
