Pagans don't look for recruits; we believe everyone must find their own path, and that there are many paths to the Divine.
When did Chills tell you that?

Hmmmm, not overtly.
My college roommate was a nice Christian lad and by his second year with me he had joined the Druid campus organization. Funny how open honest discussion works. I was a Taoist minister at the time. HAd a nice JW couple visit one afternoon, they left with a copy of the Tao Te Ching. I never got my copy of watchtower. <smile>

Sounds good to the ignorant, but in no way science.
It was Bigfoot day on TLC or Discovery or one of those the other day. All day long, shows about Bigfoot, some of them were pretty convincing.

You seem to be the only one concerned about it. First, the thread was declared dead by you on five occasions and now, it's not in first place. It must really suck to have your brain.

It doesn't matter to me who does it. I consider it an insult to God and an indication of someones faith being in their own cleverness rather than God. This is my oppinion. I think I will discontinue this line of discusion. It is of no gain. There are none here that are responsible for those decisions. If ther were, I would have no problem voicing my concerns.
The imaginary can't be insulted.

Thanks Duane, That's not my style. When I share about my faith I never minister in that way.

You are stereotyping all Christians as Fundies.
Seems as soon as you see someone who believes in God you think they are a clueless Fundie.
You have not been here long enough to know who is sincere and who is an idiot. I aim that comment at both theists and atheists alike.
So far, I think you are smart but you are acting like an idiot.
You were really on a roll last night Duane...Keep it up! Gotta love it!

Just for curiousity sake....Who told you about the "path" you chose? How did you come to learn about it? And furthermore, what is it?

Then why does she dodge and deflect, and act like a kid, rather than answer a direct question?
I'll answer that for you....I answer questions that deserve to be answered....And unfortunately I answer some that don't deserve it.

You think the Bible is a book of facts ?

Myth and tribal folklore.
Abram is as real as King Arthur or Lancelot.

The Tao Te Ching is not a religious work. It is philosophy. Tao is not "God".

Thought these were words of truth...

Ghandi said of peace,

的f we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won稚 have the struggle, we won稚 have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously, the whole world is hungering.

Gandhi's Prayer for Peace

I offer you peace.
I offer you love.
I offer you friendship.
I see your beauty.
I hear your need.
I feel your feelings.
My wisdom flows from the highest source.
I salute that source in you.
Let us work together.
For unity and peace.

Black Elk: Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, 1863-1950

"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."

You're right...the Goddess of the Roman harvest is very interesting. In fact, most myths are interesting in their own way. I guess I should have included in that information that Pamona's celebration was on Nov 1 and that is why Pope Gregory III designated Nov 1 as All Saints Day. What is truly interesting is how a newer religion always borrows from older ones in order to obtain more converts.

That's exactly what christianity did back in around 370CE.
<quoted text>
Which god?
godchecker.com
People professing christ have done many things that are wrong. But that doesn't make christ teachings wrong. It makes those professing to be representing Christ wrong.
The God I believe in is Jehoavah.
If a person believes they have to eat a balogna sandwich every day to be saved, they better eat a balogna sandwich every day. I'm not saying you have to eat a balogna sandwich. I'm saying you have to be true towhat you believe. If you seek the truth, it will be found. And you will be freed from your own misunderstandings.

Except your god doesn't empirically exist.

Interview 100 Christians and each will think they are properly representing Christ and the other 99 are wrong. This is one of the reasons rational people know it's all a bunch of crap.
