Keep It Real cherry picks, has own interpretations and understanding. If he does "good" and thinks its God's will, there is not much wrong with it because results matter, not motivations. I do not understand how belief in God helps him but .. as you said .. whatever flows his boat, as long as it floats. ISIS does not float. We want to see results. The cool stories, about where our morals come from, are dime in dozen.

No alcohol, nicotine, illicit drugs or gambling.

Brush teeth every night.

Exercise regularly.

Attend church frequently.

Waking - 5pm, write novels, 5pm to bed - read, less socialising, chores, short breaks, appointments and planned holidays.

Q'apla!

Wow, your "god"'s will coincidentally matches your own ambitions for how you would like to live your life. Isn't that just amazing? So if you achieve your aims, your god gets the credit? Never seen that anywhere else, good shit gets ascribed to God. Who carries the can for the bad shit or if you fail to achieve your/god's will? Guess it won't be god for being powerless to ensure your success.......
Nothing new here at all, just a personal rehashing of the same old tiresome shit.
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

Also the apostrophe in qapla' is in the wrong place.

Keep It Real wrote:First we need imagine what God wants us to do with our life. Avoiding the sins is key, as is loving thy neighbor, as I see things. My lack of free-will has lead to substance abuse, laziness, selfishness and a host of other unethical behaviors. Many people don't lead good lives as they only listen to what they want; from moment to moment, and human desires are often unethical and damaging. It is worth turning over our will's to god; but remember this above all else - God is good! So only do the things god has revealed to you as being ethically robust. I do not think that god interferes or can interfere in the physical world or nature. God acts through guiding us poor, weak humans. God to me is moral truth, as we perceive it. So I'm going to follow that true path and no longer allow satan (unethical desires) to run my life. This philosophy is completely accessible to atheists, although I wouldn't recommend they keep thinking of themselves as atheists - the Christian identity provides a framework and structure which brings god to life in the mind and to call oneself an atheist would weaken god's influence in our lives. Peaceout.



Once I got married I know longer had any need to believe in God, my wife tells me when I'm bad and punishment is swift.

There are other gods, you know. :doh: But so far, not one theist has provided evidence that any of them exist. You certainly can't, no matter how much you preach.

Utter crap!

I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Correct - it's not a choice; but one can choose to be a cultural Christian/Muslim/Jew etc. and perhaps faith will grow but many of the benefits can be reaped without true faith regardless.

It's not a choice - it is forced upon us through perceiving that religious faith has no basis in reality.
