Well I'll be damned your right. Bless his heart. He's using it all wrong. And my grammar is way off. I thought it was spelled slew. But using phonics. Sa-lew is definitely the correct spelling. Thanks Prof. 😊

 

🤣

They ain't call me The Redneck Professor for nothing, son.  😎

Given the name, I'm guessing SouthternSound is from somewhere in the American "bible belt."  Would we be correct to assume that?

Well thats what I thought. But I dont know anyone in the south that has never heard "The Devil went down to GA" 

Apparently, he is in the world; but not of the world... if you know what I mean.

Worships Jesus Christ. Well, there are numerous ways people have defined worship and Jesus Christ. And interpret the Bible. Wars have been fought. Blood spilled over it. So saying only that is too broad.

     I could label myself as some kind of hard agnostic. In that, now, I see our situation as beings in an Impossible situation to "know" truth, indeed that term makes no sense at an absolute level.

    It is like asking water how does a rock feel. It is just a weird question. There are some Christian pararels where Christian hesychasts said that God's essence is unknowable and unimagineable but we know his uncreated energies. So I'm an an agnostic on the absolute existential level, but a rational empiricist of sorts on the relative level. That is using reason and sensation to build diverse ever changing ever verifying models of reality.

Not sure what that means. Does that mean you change your mind from day to day?

 

No, I just express the same worldview in more than one way.

I'm genuinely curious to know how people satisfy their spiritual needs after Christianity. People tend to gravitate towards the spiritual. Where are they drawn?

 

Just because we don't believe in the Bible or christianity anymore doesn't mean we jump to another religion. Some of us like @Joshpantera have given a lot of thought and contemplation on having spirituality without believing in a God. I have not ruled out the possibility of a supernatural aspect of spirituality. I have my hopes as to how I would personally prefer the afterlife to be. But those are just hopes without any foundation. I know that most likely after my eyes close for the last time there is probably nothing after that. But I have hope that there is. If not.. I will never know the differenc and I'm ok with that. I have plans that I am content with whether there is an afterlife or not. 

 

You haven't posted in a few days. Have you already grown bored with us? It would be nice to have a more in depth conversation with you, where both sides glean information from each other.

Ex-Christianity: Where you can roll your own beliefs about God and heaven...and not have to feel bad about yourself.

I'm here. I'm an authentic Christian. My visits will be sporadic.

 

My reason for joining is I'm interested in what Ex Christians believe after they apostatize.

 

Salue!

 

Welcome.

What I believe is, there is no compelling reason to believe there is in fact any spirit..

Human, supernatural, or holy.

 

"Spirit" (as a noun) is one of those things the belief in which is near universal, but for which there is no actual definition.

That alone is enough to make me skeptical.

 

I was a Christian believer for 58 years, if that matters to the discussion.

Yes.

 

An authentic Christian is a person who loves and worships Jesus Christ with all their heart. If this is done with a genuine and honest heart many character traits follow from that, of course.

 

To be a little more honest and authentic, you would say "who loves and worships Jesus Christ with all their belief and devotion", yes?

 

My intention is not to pick nits, but this is another example of the corruption of speech which is common to the Christian faith as well as other religions.

 

The heart is of course an organ which pumps blood, nothing more.

 

When words begin to be used to generalize and imply something other than what they actually mean, the truth becomes distorted.

In effect, it's a form of propaganda.

Then who are you not intending to pick nits off of?

Is that, in your perception what I am doing?

I'm just going by the words you were using.
