Some things take time. And I never learned it from you...you don't even believe that God exists so how could you have taught me? O Tangled one, perhaps we should go fishing.
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain " *** “We must realize that the Reformation world view leads in the direction of government freedom. But the humanist world view with inevitable certainty leads in the direction of statism. This is so because humanists, having no god, must put something at the center, and it is inevitably society, government, or the state.”- Francis A. Schaeffer
“The whole war between the atheist and the theist comes down to this: the atheist believes a 'what' created the universe; the theist believes a 'who' created the universe.” - Criss Jami, Killosophy
...ive likely done more of that stuff than you have.
As Jesus pointed out to the disciples, the lady who gave two mites gave more than the rich men who gave bags of gold - because she gave all she had.
Ringo claims I dont do what Jesus says to do, but I fail to see where I fall short...perhaps you know.
See above. Jesus told the rich young ruler to "sell what you have and give to the poor" - not "sell a lot and give to the poor". It isn't how much you do that counts. It's how much you could do and don't.
"I've been to Moose Jaw, now I can die." -- John Wing
Only if you fight your mind. This is very, very simple stuff, but you have to switch off that bit of your mind that can't let you think.
And I never learned it from you
You didn't learn it from anyone Phat, it's been pointed out to you hundreds of times.
...you don't even believe that God exists so how could you have taught me?
You see, you still haven't got it. It's logic, not belief.
Thus, if God theoretically knew what I would choose He would also know on a day by day basis what I am choosing (day by day) and if I ended up damned it really would be His fault for not speaking to me in the still small voice which I believe He does have.
That isn't hard is it? The next step is to see that if god is all knowing and knows what you'll do before you were born and also knows that you'll murder someone but still sends you to hell for all eternity, then he's evil. At the very least, he doesn't love you.
O Tangled one, perhaps we should go fishing.

"Science adjusts it's views based on what's observed. Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved." - Tim Minchin, in his beat poem, Storm.
