>>724836308 No that is not at all the implication. I can't stand people like you, you intentionally misrepresent your opponent's position because you care more about winning than being right or honest. Fuck you
>>724833497 It helps people who are afraid of or don't want to think about the unknown. It's hard to get your shit done when you're constantly think about what the fucking universe is and why you're hear.. atoms and shit
>>724838233 "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
Yes, prayer has worked for me. I hate putting in those terms though. It's not like "I pushed this button and made someone do my bidding."
Saying it "worked" is more like it brought me closer to God, I think it helped me understand God better, and although I believe God knows my prayers I accept that what I ask for isn't always the best outcome. And when prayers aren't answered in the way I wanted, I have an easier time seeing why they weren't.
On a side note, through prayer I have found myself in a position to help answer other people's prayers - sometimes anonymously, sometimes not. But I am definitely more aware of ways I can help someone else.
I don't imagine my comment will change anyone else's viewpoint but it is my experience.
"Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God."
I read that once and prayed my hands to be instruments of righteousness for God and next week I was asked to play in a praise band. That was pretty cool.
>>724841381 Technically you're the center of your own observable universe, but the entire cosmos lacks an observable or quantifiable center from our human perspective. Any center that exists is either beyond out sight or beyond our current technologies to track and find. But its the thought that counts, I guess that's part of the whole religion thing.
>>724842177 Nice dubs, but I don't really see Christianity as a semitic religion. It's grown past the tribalistic desert religion thing that makes Judaism and Islam double-faced and brutal etc. as they are.
Our One Creator Which Flies and is Spaghetti and a Monster,
I believe Thou art the Creator of Goodness and Nourishment, and of Sustenance. I thank the Pasta, and the Sauce, and the Meatballs, for they provide me all my needs. I thank Thee for the Many Beverages that Thou provides, for they engender true fellowship, and I will quaff them heartily, be they Beer, or Wine, or Sweet Iced Tea (in the South), or even Milk or Kool-Aid, for it is not good to withhold fluids, and I need to take care of my Body, as Beneficiary of Thine Holy Goodness. I thank Thee for the giving of healthful Green Salad, the Yummy Garlic Bread, and the Blessed Cheese for the top of my Spaghetti, and also I am most thankful that If I eat All my Dinner, a Dessert of Extreme Chocolateness will surely follow, preferably Dark Chocolate, for it is Good. I believe that Thou are neither Male, nor Female, but are instead beyond the reaches of the gender confusion of Man and Woman Kind, yea, thou are ageless, timeless and all-encompassing. I most humbly thank Thee, oh Noodly Appendaged One, for Touching me with the mental capacity to adapt the mythologies of This Universe to aid and comfort me here, until that day I am able to join together with my Pastafarian Brothers and Sisters at the foot of the Beer Volcano, and enumerate my specifications at the Stripper Factory, so that happiness and contentedness and good cheer be present for all, forever and forever, RAmen.
>>724833497 Jesus consistently failed me. Loki has about a 90% success rate, but he's not an egotistical faggot like Jesus, and so you'd best not go groveling like a weakling to him. In fact you're better off trying to solve your own problems, and if he deems you worthy of his aid, you'll fucking get it.
>>724842758 >It's grown past the tribalistic desert religion thing that makes Judaism and Islam double-faced and brutal etc. as they are. True, but its still just as invasive. I will admit that its by far the least terrible if only because its not quite as violent nor is it taken seriously in political discourse anymore. That said the jew god is still a dick no matter which iteration of it you follow.
i really don't understand how grown adults can believe in a man in the sky who can make and do anything. along with noahs ark and splitting the ocean or whatever the fuck happened. shits literally a fairytale.
>>724843408 Just as invasive? Like Islam that seeks to dominate the world by terrorising and killing all non-believers until they all convert to Islam? Or invasive like the Zionists who seek to dominate the whole world with their capital?
>>724843549 God is not a man in the sky who can make and do anything.
>>724833497 Never been baptized. Never opened a bible. Only time I've stepped inside a church was for a funeral or a wedding. There's times where i want to believe there is a god but i feel like he's just not hearing me out. All i pray for is to be happy and to live in peace. living next to my neighbor and his 5 loud ass dogs doesn't help at all. i tried talking to my neighbor but he's an entitled redneck that doesn't give a fuck. I've left it alone because if it comes down to it im gonna fuck him up till he's snoring with his eyes open. I keep asking god to help me. im rambling and im not going anywhere with this but all im saying is i want to believe but im having a hard time
>>724844701 Another answered prayer of mine: I prayed for humbleness once. I can't remember why I wanted to be more humble or what happened, but next week I was like just falling to pieces. I don't know how to explain it, but something happened that made me feel like utter shit. God likes humble people, I guess, so He likes to answer prayers like that.
