Go to: Texas Gov. Rick Perry's misguided day of prayer

zbob's Avatar Jump to comment 34 by zbob

.> Matthew 6:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Governor Perry should follow the advice of his saviour and keep it in the closet.

Go to: The Rapture aside, America's evangelical Christians deserve a little respect

Unfortunately, the mentally ill and ignorant amongst us will not only part with their money but also attempt very drastic actions due to the lies of evangelicals. Watch this:Woman slits daughters throat and her own for fear of coming "tribulation".

Go to: Fighting talk in church

When I was learning the gospels, the version of Mark 10 said:

"13People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." 16And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them"

The relevant portion being, "anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God LIKE A LITTLE CHILD will never enter it." Totally different meaning from the version quoted at this baptism service.

Go to: Belief is about truth, not feelings

"Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends on what we look for. What we look for depends on what we think. What we think depends on what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality." -David Bohm
