From Arwensmallelf:

If jeusus died so that one could be forgiven...?

This is just one of the many things in christianity, aand all it's branches, I don't understand. if jesus died so that the sins of man could be forgiven then what difference does it matter if you do something wrong? if you are forgiven when you die.

FYI: i know i can't spell, and a little note i'm not christian and i don't have a god. don't try to convert me or change my opnion. or pray for me.

From Anthony:

Would you travel back in time to stop Jesus?
-- To stop him from getting himself nailedd to a cross and founding the worst religion ever?
-- I think I could stop him. I think If I had a time machine that I could stop him good.
-- If we work together, we can do this peoople.
-- If I stopped him, I'd be saving his liffe. Isn't that even better than watching him die?
-- I'd kidnap the bugger and outwit any Roomans or Jews who were on the posse out to get him.
-- Peter didn't have a van.

From Forsaken13

Is man the true god?

When I stop and think about it, didn't man create the first religions? Didn't man establish the first reigning gods? Didn't man dethrone some (Zeus,Jupiter,etc)and put new ones in the throne? (jesus,YahWeh,etc) Isn't it man who fights and conquers others in order to give power to their respective god? Is not man the one who has shaped the Earth and created many things out of it? Is he not the one with the power to giveth and taketh away? Can he not choose to destroy the Earth? I believe gods and religions are mere tools of man: the true creator. He who rose out of nothingness and shaped the face of the Earth and its creatures.

Does anyone else hates bloody Christians?

I noticed that lots of them are in America. "Bloody Christians" are those who shout that they love Jesus, and Jesus is in their lifes and so on... and yet, they could easily beat the **** out of you if you curse them or say something like "Jesus sucks"... They are violent, more violent than any other people who don't have any religion at all. The have the tendency to make justice with All costs and they are easily irasscible. This is not christianity you bloody martirs(only in your minds)... (bloody - not the irish meaning, but the true sense sorry for my grammar mistakes, english is not my primary language)

From Sol:

Looking for religious advice:

Am a recovering catholic..have a son and contemplating baptism (my family)..good point they make.."give your son a religion and let him decide down the line if he wants to continue to believe, but at least give him something to believe in"..i am still trying to figure it out..i like the teachings of buddha, but also the bible has some really good stories to believe in.. i would like a religion that allows questions and of ideas and debate...also the service must be energtic and full of life and song..not monotone and repetive (as the catholic ones offense, but i went to mass for 18 years of my life)... any ideas what that can be?? protestant, lutherian, baptist, presbyterian...any leads would help...

From Anonymous:

Isn't Intelligent Design as a theory just a little too convenient? Isn't it true that it was formulated just to counter the theory of Evolution? Religion should not be melded into science, the secular and spiritual concepts should be kept separate.

Agree or disagree?

From ChristianA:

Christians misunderstood?

I find that people misunderstand sincere Christians intentions. I only want what's best for people. And Jesus is the best. I want people to go to heaven. I don't push people to change and rarely say anything. If UI am asked, I take the opportunity, it is my duty and hearts desire to share it with them. I only want them to find the true happiness and peace available. I want to see them in heaven. It hurts me to see the turmoil in the world. Yet people seem to think Christians think they are evil. I only have termendous love for them. Anyone else find that others are angry at Christians?

From Lovesalljesus:

Advise on how to witness?

Muslims believe in God, but call him Allah. How is this God different from the christian God? Isn't it just a different name because of their different foundation language?
