Discuss. (another religion thread, so we're not mucking up Immortal's)

Immortal's thread got a little off the point...sorry about that.



If you can't see the graphic, it says:

"If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal. If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane."

-Robert G. Ingersoll

Can't really argue that, 'spare the rod, spoil the child' would get you brought up on child abuse these days.

"Love your Neighbor as your self". "Love your Enimies". None of that fits with the independent "I got this way so you should be able to" mentality that our culture has.

People may say "I try to love everybody" but will flat out say no if someone wrongs them. Jesus taught otherwise.

You know for a self proclaimed Atheist you sure like to bring up and comment about somebody you don't even believe in.
Thats how God is going to pull you in.

I enjoy the discussion. I just came across some awesome Ingersoll quotes today, so I thought I'd put them up.

The early church lived together and worked hand in hand to survive. Crazy, yes. Devoted, no doubt!

His other mistake is rationalizing that if he finds fault in a religion that he finds fault in God. That his massive understanding of the world can somehow change God.

If you believe doing so meant an eternity of joy, and not doing it meant an eternity of suffering, you would be insane not to.

This is why I don't have a problem with religious people trying to 'save' me- their beliefs tell them they should.

Religious persecution by atheism

Again....I don't care what faith you are. If you are stupid and lazy I will be annoyed by you.
