Steve in Idaho Nonexistent:God, An Anthropomorphic Personal Deity (151* d) RE: BS: Nonexistent: God, An Anthropomorphic Per 24 Mar 04


Amos - Boredom perhaps? And you may have something with your idea of each of us having "infinite reach." Jesus said in Matthew that if we had faith we could do anything He could do. So maybe it's a blending of Him and us?

I've just enjoyed reading the spirited, non-nasty, conversation about it. Usually folks have to go getting all spun up about it and try to "prove" something to the rest.

For me Christianity isn't about proving anything. It's about living a life in accordance with responsibility, accountability, integrity, and faith. If my choice is to use the Bible as that guide that is my right. Just as it is someone else's right to believe as they do. And trashing either point of view is ineloquent, denigrative, and indicative of the character assassin that utilises it. Be they Christian or not.

"Judge not lest ye be judged" my Good Book says - I've been guilty of that, and a host of other, sins. But - as a work in progress I'm trying to be more accepting of the conversation that develops when others challenge belief systems. My Janet calls that "tact" and I've been guilty of not having a lot of that in the past also.

Have a lovely day

Steve
