Do all religions lead us to God?

No. not at all. I am simply anti-religion. I don’t ever claim to know that there isn’t a ‘god’, because I’m not so short sighted that I believe that I could even comprehend what God even is. Don’t tell me what my beliefs are based on other individuals you have met. And don’t mistake the meaning of the word atheist. Theism is religion. And I am anti-religion, but as I explained before, I am very spiritual. I don’t need a book written by men with agendas of their very own to tell me how to live my life or how to be good to others.
well good for you. not a fan of religion either "hint its all man made". However i know what atheist means and its exactly how i explained if you don't see that ok fine.

Well I don’t agree that he [Jesus] was a great role model to be honest.

I kinda like him..:)

HIGH PRIEST- "Jesus of Nazareth, alias the Christ, the Messiah and the Son of God, you stand accused of upsetting us real bad, how do you plead?"
JESUS- "On yer bike Jack!"

Maybe you should emulate him.

Jesus used to go around rescuing naughty girls from stone-throwing mobs, I hope you're not one of them blokes who don't like girls..;)

"On yer bikes, she's with me! Hold your head up baby"
"Thanks JC, let's go down the chip shop, I quite fancy a sausage in batter and pickled onion"

The first world religion began with Cain. All the rest just followed his foot steps.
The word Abel means “the breath of LIFE”, and the word Cain means “possessions”, in Hebrew.

Cain slew Abel - in English, “Possessions slew the breath of LIFE”.

I’m a woman. But I don’t believe that kind actions should mask the utter hypocrisies that him and his apostles and the entire bible preaches. I can’t ever know who the real Jesus was, I just have the words of men. Men who had their own agendas and political motivations for writing what they wrote. Also the bible was written over a long period of time. It is little more than a book of fairy tales for me. Why should it be anything else?

surely the creator of the entire universe wouldn’t be so petty to care about whether people worshiped him or not, or how they decided to live their lives? It just doesn’t add up at all. A supreme being would be so far beyond any of our capability of understanding that we would never be able to interpret its ‘plan’. The bible makes wild, unfounded claims based on nothing more than the words of humans. I won’t find God in that.

You literally called it a religion. I don’t think you understand what atheism actually means. But ok.

In Christianity women are the absolute equal of men, I thought you'd have liked that.. :p

Paul said-"There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28 )

Some of the disciples ran off in fear of the Romans when Jesus was crucified, but women stuck with him to the end, bless 'em-

Many Old Testament prophets and early Christians were hassled and killed by the snooty jewish priests and Romans, there was no 'agenda' there..:)
The prophets and apostles were just ordinary people who God gave messages to, to pass onto the human race, for example Paul was nothing to write home about -
"For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful, but his appearance is unimpressive, and he speaks poorly" (2 Cor 10:10)

And Moses admitted to being unable to think on his feet-
"O Lord, I have never been eloquent, i'm slow of speech and tongue." (Exodus 4:10)

And Jonah was so scared he refused pointblank to be a prophet and jumped on a ship to escape, bad call -
"Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish." (Jonah 1:3)

And young Jeremiah tried to talk his way out of the job - "Lord i'm no good at speaking, i'm too young and people won't take me seriously" (Jer 1:6)


And even Jesus asked God to get him off the hook-
" Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done" (Matt 26:42)

1- God cared enough about us poor shmucks to send Jesus to get us off this planet-
Jesus said- "God has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners..." (Luke 4:18 )
So Jesus is like this Adrien Brody character in 'Predators', it's your free choice whether you want to follow him or not..:)



2- God spoke through the prophets and Jesus, they didn't make things up as they went along..:)
Jesus said - "I say nothing of my own accord, i only say what my father tells me to say.." (John 12:49)

I don’t know if I ever shared this one with you, but this unexpected healing was caught on audio tape, as it happened. It’s not too long a watch, but it blew me away!

Sorry it took so long to reply to this.
I don't have much listening time, when other noise isn't going on.

That is a startling and amazing transformation. And clearly a deeply emotional moment for him.

Very, very extraordinary. I am glad I heard it.
I will be thinking about it for quite a while.
Thank you for showing it to me.

Ever argue with an atheist? They will fanatically argue for their believes not much different then any religion or cult. "a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy" is your isms. "

"a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods."

Add the two together what do you get? Just another follower of a false god like i said your gods name is
Khaos in the greek or Apophis in egypt are just some examples of gods of nothing

We are meant to believe in....be it something or nothing your still believing. Sorry but that's how it works.

If God is a loving God who cares about his creation, and has a plan to save everybody who shows interest in Him and in being saved, then I believe that in His intelligence he should be able to present us His plan in a way everybody should be able to understand it.

Just like when adults explain things to children, they simplify so child can understand :)

Philosophically also, one would have to concede the supreme being of the universe would also have the highest morality, anything less couldnt be considered God. What kind of morality would leave humans without knowledge of his love or greatness?

Ironically man will concede that we are insignificant in what we know and our ways in the context of extra-terrestrials and science.

The phrase "this is why the aliens wont talk to us" is often recited as a meme, never is it said "why dont the aliens help us, they must be evil"

But you put God in place of aliens, and this introspection turns into hateful resentful diatribe.

Ever wondered why quite a lot of celebrities and prominent individuals turn to Hinduism , leaving behind the Abrahamic faiths that they were born into?
Adherents of Abrahamic faiths , such as those of you on the forum, relentlessly strive to create a dichotomy between God and Satan, good and bad, right and wrong.
This dichotomy is false for true knowledge will reveal to you that this world and its occupants do not conform to the childish notion of seeing everything in its entirety in black and white.
