Got it in an email, makes you think.

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by pyro2005, Sep 2, 2003.

  1. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).

    Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

    And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?"

    In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

    Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school ... the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

    Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

    Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

    Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

    Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

    Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

    Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

    Are you laughing?

    Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
  2. Wouldn't was written in an basically: Insert Beliefs Here
  3. I won't even get started on this.........................................................................................................................................................................
  4. Why do religious people or e-mails like this have to be so condesending? Why can't they make a real argument, they sugar coat everything with metaphors, or some other truth bending tactic. The only people who seem to be able to argue in favour of religion are people who don't believe in it and are arguing to play devils advocate.
  5. Any coincidence that Slayer's last album "God Hates Us All" came out on none other than.......09/11/01

  6. I was thinking the same thing. What was their record release party like? Pretty dull I'm guessing.
  7. people who email such crap have a serious illness. it's called blind faith. and it is dangerous. blind faith is what brought a bunch of fanatical muslims to drive a couple of aircraft into a couple of buildings.

    as for her statements that god left the US alone after apparently americans asked him to leave... i thought these nutcases believed in god as both omnipresent and all powerfull, so

    if god is all knowing, past, present and future, then god *would* know about 9/11, and if god is all powerfull then he *would* have the ability to stop it. so in a sense, god is responsible for 9/11 due to criminal neglect.

    also "god" created man with free will. now, if man is applying his free will and denies god *and* get's punished for it by god, as the point was with this here blind-bigot mail, why bother with free will at all? why not just bow down and submit like any other slave.

    religious nutcases give me a headache sometimes. are they using their brain at all?

  8. thats exactally what i was going to say
  9. Yeah i believe in god and all, but i don't like when they use their religion as an advertisement rather than a faith. They try and lurer nonbelievers into believing something with the idea of everything be so perfect. So many atrocities happened to mankind and there can't be a religious explanation for it all. It is just wrong to create a story out of all out nothingness, they don't KNOW that happened for that reason, these people who so believe in the bible are actually spitting on it with these delusional lies, they are trying to make the bible sound evil, killing others faith with their lame ignorance. But yeah, if that story were written in the bible 2000 years ago, i'd believe it.
