    Jesus truly was an amazing man.
    Greater love has no one than this: to lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

    Before I received the Holy Spirit, I wasn't that way. I'm not who I was.
    It is amazing isn't it the deep effect religion has on our psyche. Psyche is Ancient Greek for soul. So it amazing the deep effect religion has on our soul.

    I feel this thread is ignoring the more important questions, like "What effect does cheese have on the development of roses?"

    I think you're trying to push my buttons, and it's working. But you're pushing the wrong buttons.



    You're driving me crazy

    @Bullet: Pentecostal is not my cup of tea. I'm nondenominational charismatic. My pastor is Joel Osteen.

    Not sure, I would like to know. I didn't grow up in a religious family but did go to a Catholic school from kindergarten to eighth grade and we can say it wasn't a good fit for me. Too much guilt, too many rules and they weren't open enough to the fact that not all people are the same but they should still be respected.

    I don't think I'm entirely closed off to the idea of religion, it just needs to be fair and accepting of the people who practice it and those who don't. To me, religion should be something to make you feel good and guide you through life. I do NOT believe atheists have no morals and are all going to hell.

    Thank you. I don't think I'm going to hell either.
    Not sure if I have morals though.

    It is wonderful you are non-denominational, but I wonder if it is true. If you are non-denominational charismatic, you will attend charismatic services in various nominational churches. So, for instance, do you attend catholic charismatic services?

    How does worshipping a God with the head of an elephant, called Ganesh, in Hinduism, make you feel good and guide you through life?

    And how does worshipping a God with three heads, called the Trinity, in Christianity, make you feel good and guide you through life?

    Joel Osteen is more Ayn Rand then Jesus Christ

    No, my fair-skinned brother.

    Yes, I take supplements to remedy that. Have you heard of Joseph Prince? He's right on and probably ENTP. If I lived in Singapore, my pastor would be Joseph Prince.
