not at all
I love E2 's humour- lightens the mood here often.
Buffoon imo, is not derogatory, and he is evidently smart, but read my words, that describes it all.
Yes well lets cut all the personal insults out, i have been guilty a couple of times, we are all friends here, plus i dont want you complaining about me to the white middle eastern dude inside your head. :)

Fair enough, I didn't read the whole conversation before replying. Also, you don't need to keep putting the inverted commas around God's pronouns -- is it that grating to speak of His personal existence, even hypothetically? :grinv1:
Is 'God' a 'He', a 'She' or an 'It'. No one knows for certain.

disillusioned and distracted followers are still sinners
They were predominantly leaders of the church/faith. Continue to bury your head in the sand over past atrocities all for your selfish little place in heaven.

Christians on this little old thread accuse others of being bashed on here, but ignore their horrendous history of forcing people to not believe anything else.

Kidding, right?
And you know what, no matter how much you get out of meditation etc. you too are going to die. We all are, and whatever hell you and I and all people are experiencing in this life will end. But what next?
Nothing.

What do you think you came from?

Why do you think where you’re going to when your life is over would be any different?

There’s existence, and there’s nothing.

Let’s not overcomplicate how we live our lives with pie-in-the-sky wish lists.

There is more to it than that black and white description.
Sorry that your life experience closes the door on spirituality

Oddly, many Christians ignore their own teaching on this issue--prayer alone is insufficient. You have to do something: James 2:14-26.

What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? .... For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Agreed.
As Desmond Tutu said, I have never seen pizza fall out of the sky. If you see starvation, you should do more than pray- actually provide food for those you see starving.
