    I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

    I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

    As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus.

    Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

    John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

    Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    This fits perfectly with the bibles teachings that we are to judge all things and hold to the good.

    1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.

    This is a compulsion to be our own masters instead of just kowtowing to someone else’s opinions.

    This is also why Christians used their inquisitions on us. Freedom of thought was not allowed by Christianity.

    A concept and freedom that Christians now seem to promote.

    Many Christians follow the teachings of, to us, a genocidal and infanticidal demiurge, Yahweh.

    How Christians can see him as a good god is beyond me and Christians shy away from any apologetics as to why they think such a satanic god is good.

    I see my judgements as more moral than that immoral demiurge and that is why I have rejected him for Jesus.

    Do you follow 1 Thessalonians 5:21, or do you let someone else do your judging for you?

    Regards

    Why are you so stuck in 2000 years ago? These dudes are not historical characters. Read Robert green ingersoll instead. You will still be a hundred years behind.

    And Bertrand Russell then you will only be 70 years behind.

    When those who idol worship a 3,000 year old genocidal and infanticidal god and stop preaching and using homophobic and misogynous teachings, then I will stay in 2020.

    While those immoral Christians and Muslims are about doing harm, I will be around and trying to shut them down.

    I hope you are as well. It helps me mitigate my hate.

    Hate is born of love and she is a pushy mistress that demands my actions.

    You really do love these discredited 19th-century atheopaths don't you? Draper and White perpetuated the lie that the Church taught a flat earth before Columbus, and Ingersoll fabricated a quote from Magellan saying that the church said the earth is flat, plus village-atheist attacks on the Bible.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    How many lies does your bible have?

    Surely not god's genocide and infanticide. Those must be true eh?

    It is all lies, if read literally, unless you want to believe in talking serpents and donkeys and a god who would covet a human female, Mary, cuckold Joseph, and become a deadbeat dad.

    I hope you can see how intelligent the ancients were as compared to the mental trash that modern preachers and theists are using with the literal reading of myths.

    https://bigthink.com/videos/what-is-god-2-2

    Further.
    http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/03132009/watch.html

    Rabbi Hillel, the older contemporary of Jesus, said that when asked to sum up the whole of Jewish teaching, while he stood on one leg, said, "The Golden Rule. That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the Torah. And everything else is only commentary. Now, go and study it."

    Please listen as to what is said about the literal reading of myths.

    "Origen, the great second or third century Greek commentator on the Bible said that it is absolutely impossible to take these texts literally. You simply cannot do so. And he said, "God has put these sort of conundrums and paradoxes in so that we are forced to seek a deeper meaning."

    Matt 7;12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

    This is how early Gnostic Christians view the transition from reading myths properly to destructive literal reading and idol worship.

    Ingersoll had such a following they would run special trains to his events. Bible belt states tried to bar him. And it was $1 entry which wasn't cheap. They wanted him to run in politics but he objected stating he would have to compromise his beliefs. But regrettably there were no free loaves and fishes.

    Bubbles of sanity and reason like Ingersoll have popped up more often than most know but the church had their own anti-those against low grade inquisitions forever.

    They are like the tobacco industry that target the scientists when one has the balls to speak the truth about their immoral reality and how the church is as vile as any businesses that knowingly kills people with their product and try to hide that fact.

    Have you read Trump's henchmen saying that there is an actual non-believer coalition trying to undermine religion. It is a lie they are using to try to play the victim of a conspiracy.

    If there was such a conspiracy, I would hope to have been recruited a long time ago.

    If only I had the requirements to start such a movement.

    Hell, I should start recruiting and start one myself.

    Where is that powerful god when I want him.

    I would not even resist rubbing shoulders with the genocidal Yahweh, if he repented for his evil ways and gave me a bit of power.

    You really do scrape the bottom of the barrel don't you? Yes, even Russell's book against Christianity, which has none of the logical brilliance of his formal work.

    When discussing a low class subject like rel igion one is restricted as to how much true intellect can be applied. It often can only be a call to common sense. I know students who were disappointed that they enrolled in Philosophy of Religion due to the lack of intellectual vigour in the subject.

    Ingersoll's books have more wisdom than all religious books combined.

    I don't know how it could be otherwise.

    Any time anything is said of the supernatural realm, it becomes speculative nonsense as none of it can be verified or proven.

    That is why the ancients, before the immoral mainstream religions started reading their myths literally, had a poor opinion and reaction to literalism and the supernatural.

    They were brighter about religions and myths than the dim bulbs of today.

    Should have been intellectual rigour of course. The bishop must be busy carrying out pastoral duties.
