  1. I found a link on this site that listed many youtubers:
  2. I wonder if losing one's sense of humor is a prerequisite for becoming a Christian.
  3. Except when he has 42 kids killed by a bear, eh?
  4. Since it is not illegal to open carry inside my own home, that can be a deterrent. I just don't step outside.
  5. God is complicit in man's sin by creating man after having failed with the creation of angels. Did not the omniscient God know that man would sin? Especially after the disaster of the creation of angels, 1/3 of which rebelled? The whole logic is flawed, yet no Bibler will admit it. SMH
  6. Isn't the first one hypocritical? Its against people who say women should be thin to be attractive by saying women should be obese to be attractive? Anyway, as a red blooded male, having gone through a divorce, there is more to life than just looks.
  7. Apparently, and rightfully so if true, the US has condemned ongoing violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar as ethnic cleansing. Yet many Americans support Israel and believe the Bible. Do you think this is bald faced hypocrisy or have none read the OT stories of God having men, women, and children of non-Jews killed? O, that is except for the women that were virgins, they could be kept by the Jews. SMH.
  8. Due to the limited population and their strict doctrine, there is also inbreeding in the Amish population. And they won't get medically tested before having children to see if there may be potential genetic issues. I think the initial Amish population in the US was around 200, now there are ~250,000. So you do the math.
  9. If I hadn't committed to the support group, I would been gone already. The group meets weekly for another 4 meetings, then I can bow out. but this waiting period is torture.
  10. I have been thinking about this a lot lately. If original sin does exist, isn't God an accessory to sin if not worse? If God made angels gave them free will and one third rebelled. Yet He didn't learn, He then made an even less trustworthy creature, mankind, gave him free will, put a temptation in his dwelling place, and then told him not to eat of it. But God is all knowing and ever present and all powerful, so the minute or instant, if you will, before Eve ate and Adam ate, God KNEW! So not stopping them is a sin of omission, is it not? Anyway, the above is predicated on Adam and Eve being real as well as the God of the Bible being real.
  11. Welcome SFA. There is a box on the bottom left that you check to quote text for a reply. And you can Like, Thank, etc by clicking on the heart icon in the right. I am new here too, and that's about all the tech advice I have
  12. These next few weeks is going to be like torture. I hate being hypocritical, so this will be a rough stretch. Should be able to exit after 12/11. Thanks for the welcome!
  13. Thanks MOHO. I am just providing mainly emotional support and practical advise to the group having gone through what they are going through now. No indoctrination. Mainly a shoulder to lean on, figuratively speaking.
  14. Just a quick introduction. I just joined this site in the last week and am in the process of leaving evangelical Christianity. After 54 years of hearing some form of Christianity preached to me, I have several reasons. The main two are the twisted logic that I have heard taught by pastors/preachers in explaining things Biblical, and the continuous, never ending sense of guilt and worthlessness that is preached. Yes, it is preached that there is salvation for our sorry butts, but that's because god made us with the ability to sin. So he made a mistake? Anyway, I have had enough. My difficulty is that I am involved with a small group and a support group of the church. I am just waiting for the support group series of classes to end before I depart. Why? I feel bad leaving people going through tough times after having committed to help them for a period. I know, I guess it makes me a hypocrite for a short time, but if that is the worst that is laid at my feet, then I am OK with that. Thanks!
