My mental image of God 'as a poster' would be full of love and warmth toward other members - even those whose lifestyle he disagrees with.

    I don't understand people who make religion about hate, fire, and brimstone. It was never like that for me.

    1 Corinthians 13 is relevant in it's entirety, but the last line resonates with me. "...And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." God is about love in my world.

    But God is something different to everyone. That's why religion is so effective. It's so personal. You take it, and you make it yours. You make God yours. My God would be a fantastic poster. Your God... Probably not so much.
    exactly. it's impossible for me to even answer that question because i don't believe those same at all.

    and hate wrapped up in that way sickens me like no other.

    I think when God created the Netherlands, he got so stoned from the legal marihuana that he forgot all about the world.

    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Love is not rude. (I Cor. 13:5)
    God is love. (I John 4:8)
    Therefore God is not rude and it's hard to get banned if you're not rude. So I think God would be okay.

    He's just got really bad PR people right now.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I realize this is a stereotype, but it's really not all true. It might apply to the Christians who get the most attention, and certainly many my parent's age, but it most definitely does not apply to all of us. I'm not fond of abortion... But, I am definitely not anti-gay and consider myself a feminist.

    I would also agree with pretty much all of what Patches said. Although, I do currently identify as a Christian.
