Everyone should go ancient Greek, they had such a cool system of beliefs. You worship a particular god or goddess if you wanted something ie: Aphrodite for love. It's so simple and it's the one form of organised religion I would be able to tolerate, I find it very hard to take most of Christianity seriously due to some of the small minded and prejudiced views preached by many. I'm not knocking anyone on here, but thats my opinion on the matter

Lol, i'm not sure God has access to the Internet. BDV should be just fine.
You say that some third world countries don't have the opportunity to learn about God. What exactly is there to learn about him? There's no evidence of his existance so surely anything which is learnt about God is purely biased - and in reality, probably complete fiction. What opportunities are we talking about here? Sitting in a class at school reading bible passages to try and give us "the faith"?
If Satan has complete control over Earth then how come it isn't all war and hatred everywhere you look? How come when we have a happy experience, we always pray and thank God instead of Satan. It can't be both ways.

Cowie said in post #10 : .I think people have faith until something terrible happens and they realise god ain't listening at all, so whats the point in believing?
I dissagree with this, I infact found the case to be opposite. My faith has been increased. I'm Catholic, and I don't give a damn about the paedophile priests, they're sick. But not all preists are like that.
People can belive anything they want, I choose to belive in God. I choose to follow my religon. I don't belive it all, I don't follow the Bible to every last detail. I just try to be a good person and to be nice to people.
And in the end isn't that the main reason behind the teachings of Jesus Christ? Who, was a real man, he appears on Roman records. Also his death by crucificton is documented. There are facts behind it, the rest you choose weather you want to belive or not.
If you think it helps, belive. If not, don't. Don't give me a bunch scientfic theory that I know already.
Sure the "Garden of Eden" and the God creating the world in 7 days is just legend to help people explain what they couldn't expalin. There are things that arn't really belivable. But some of the things said by Jesus, his parrables. These are meant to be advice on how to improve yourself. Every Religon has something like that. Religon now, can help you to be a better person. That's what I think.

When God finds out about your Nazi banner, he's gonna be pretty pissed then yuh.
If you believe in the word of God, you can overcome the bad in your life...something like that.
But that's simply implying that if we don't believe in God, we're destined to be depressed failures. To believe those words is ridiculous. There have been millions of people who have lived happy good lives without believing in the word of God. I suppose they'll be burning in hell right now then yeah?
You should be banned for that banner Lee. It's incredibly offensive, I assume it's only there for my quotes comparison. Either that or you're a total smeg head. I'm not sure which. Care to enlighten me? Hypocrit.
