NATHAN, it isn't nice to spread lies. I have nothing to do with what's happening.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

Agreed I wish people would not get sick but they do becuase we live in a natural world.


But you just claimed:

  We can always find what we want to believe.

Which is it? You are making contradictory claims.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

I told him not to, so he won't.

According to the bible you believe in, all sickness - colds, flus, headaches, were caused by demons, and the term disease may not have even existed at the time..  Any other opinion is not logical - demons were the explanation for ailments according to the bible, and the physicians of the time, including Jesus, were also miracle-healers, which at the time, were actually a dime-a-dozen.  Numerous miraculous miracle-workers, however, Jesus sticks out as the religious highlight of an ancient great physician...

Pehaps Ambassador Pony is right, that or Nathan is mentally retarded.

now now lets leave those that can't defend themselves out this.  Stop labeling people.  Good luck folks I am singing off.  your lack of proof that god does not exist forces me to believe you are crazy.

In all seriousness thank all of you that responded.  it is always good to get different perspectives.  I will have to figure out a way to get proof for all of you.  it obviously will take time. 

Be Blessed and I pray God does show himself to all of you acceptp Lucifer you already know he exists.

You've yet to prove Zathar does not exist, yet Lucifer and I have given our testimony to his existence. You know Zathar demands that you give up your God for him because he will save the world from the Quasars and those who believe in him will be granted an eternity in his special Nebula where you're able to have all that you wish and live in harmony. Why worship your God when Zathar actually exists and the consequence of not worshipping him is the potential risk of destroying the earth and you be severely punished for it.

Can you prove to me that my statements are wrong?

Agreed I wish people would not get sick but they do becuase we live in a natural world. I wish that people starving all over the world could be fed but greed does not allow that to happen.  I wish that the people being slaughtered just becuase they are of a different ethniticity was not happening but it does becuase racism reigns in someplaces.  I wish war would end but deep hatered does not letthat happen.  I wish God would appear so everyone could see Him but why should he since the last time he was her he go cruxified.

We live in a sick dying world bound on self distruction becuase of lucifer.

isn't it great how human ability has basically said in so many cases "fuck you god, so much for your punishment of disease"? 

Nice to see that you, Nate, pick and choose what you want your god to be responsible for.  such a pretty magic decoder ring you have.

Fine. You acknowledge you can be wrong. Good.

Demonstrate to me that you weren't wrong when you thought you saw demons.

 
Furthermore, and without dodging, answer my four questions:


I state (1) I exist,(2) I am male,(3) I live in the United States,(4) and I am actually an incarnation of the one and only Loki, the Norse God.

For each of these four claims, do you believe me?, yes or no.

He doesn't exist in World of Warcraft, Zathar doesn't have the time to play WoW, he's busy saving the universe. As Zathar is real, you are condemning yourself and putting our planet at risk by not worshipping him.

If you cannot prove that my statements are wrong, then I cannot take you seriously.

So I fear people in to accepting Christ because I believe through my life experience there is a hell and people will spend eternity there.  I applaud you for standing up for your beliefs and I respect them but I have seen demons, had experiences that prove Lucifer exists (still has no power) and seeks to destroy people for eternity.  There is only one way to know and that will be the day we all die.  in that day we will know if we are right or wrong.
Let me correct your grammar here.  You terrify people into believing in Jesus because your experiences in life lead you to believe that hell exists and that people will spend eternity there.  So...what difference is there between your actions and the actions of other people who use terror to force others into accepting something they want?  The simple fact is that there isn't.  It's wrong to use terror to try to force people into making a decision the way you want them to.  The means you use shapes the end you seek.

Quote from: NATHAN
You do have to accept the gift of Salvation through Jesus.  Your right.  I bet if someone offered you a millions you would take it.
If someone offered me a million dollars, with the same terms as your salvation through Jesus, you had better believe I wouldn't accept it.  "If you worship me for all your days, I'll give you a million dollars after you die".  See the problem?  This gift of eternal life doesn't come until after someone dies.  What sense is there in that?  The reason for this Christian belief is because it's impossible to verify anything that happens after someone dies, therefore promises about what happens after death are "safe".  People don't want to believe that once they die, that's it, so they buy into those promises about what happens after, wrongly believing that they're better off by believing than by not believing.

Quote from: NATHAN
I am trying to present fact and I am sorry if you take it as intimated  but there is a time coming when I guess we will all know the truth about heaven or hell.
The thing is, you aren't presenting fact.  You're presenting opinion.  You have no evidence, no way to prove your statements true.  By definition, then, what you're saying is your opinion.  And to be blunt, I'm not at all intimidated by your opinion on this matter.

Nathan, I have issued you a warning for trolling. You will cease pretending to be an idiot in order to take advantage of the forum membership. If you are not interested in engaging in earnest, as the person you actually are, then you should move on. This is not a place for playing pretend and being selfish.

The consequence for further transgressions is having all of your posts moderated by a responsible adult.

Ok, so you're saying that the former makes more sense. good. but you were doing the latter. now the other two questions Nathan.

Here’s what we can see with you Nathan

You use the no true Scotsman fallacy, you think you’re the “true Christian.”

You use Pascal’s wager, as did many Christians before you. You didn’t pay attention when we told you how the Pascal’s wager failed.

You consider anecdotes and youtube videos as proof of demon possession, but never try to understand the mind and how things can be explained, but instead you just go, “See, demon.”

After we give you answers to your posts, you just ignore our questions, make assumption about us, and you keep repeating yourself.

When I asked you some of the questions, you decided to ignore it or give completely dodge the question. Now, you decided to insult my intelligence and even just gave one weak answer to one question.

You then just threatened us with hell and proclaimed it isn’t threat and look down on us. It just tells us a lot more about you.

You’re inconsiderate, you’re condescending, and you’re a troll.

I refuse nothing.  Explain to me, simply and clearly, how I can have a personal experience with your god.  But I expect two things from that explanation.  Firstly, I want your guarantee that if I follow your words exactly, I will get that personal experience.

Do you really want Him in your life?  If not this is an exercise in futility. Also I am charged to assist you in this process and am making myself available to you. 

Thank you for that Nathan - but I didn't see in there your guarantee that I would have that personal experience.

I'm also confused - at one stage you say "church isn't important", but later you say "find a local church".  Which is it?

Actually, where I live, a mosque is nearer to me than a church - would that be acceptable?
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Church is a body of People that believe in Jesus.  It does not mean a big building.  I have issues with the corporate still church system in the US.  There is no way for 10,000 people to be discipled correctly. It is about a small group of people with relation to assist each other. That is church.
