Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god? God’s condemnation is quite severe. Hell and death, if you are a literalist believer. Meanwhile, scriptures say that the penalty for sin is closer to what we generally view as justice. That justice being an eye for an eye. This means that the penalt...

Re: Arguments against Soul

You'll probably find a lot more from the Gnostics, but they were rejected and persecuted by mainstream Christians as the religion grew. @Greatest I am May have some thoughts on this. Thanks for this buddy. =============== Gnostic Christians were seem as the good Christians and the orthodoxy could n...

Re: Objective vs Subjective Morality

Kaz1983 How does one decide what the greater good is when many attributes are subjectively based? By his subjective opinion. Right? Sure, one might just look at the body count, but if the two sides are close in numbers, my subjective opinion might favor the one side that has more women than men or v...

Do logic and reason say that God is our servant?

Do logic and reason say that God is our servant? https://biblehub.com/matthew/20-28.htm Even as the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve, At the end of the day, there is no physical or real supernatural God for us to follow. If there were, then logic and reason say that if such a God wante...

You're too confused to debate with.

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

I asked how one can 'harm' the environment, rather than how one can affect it. Affecting and harming are not the same. They are close enough if you are aware of the topic. Perhaps a reluctance to explore ideas - to follow reason - and instead dogmatically to stick with one's initial thoughts is par...

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

But the world isn't a person. It is not the subject of a life. There's nothing it is like to be a world. We call it the 'objective' physical world - meaning by this the world that exists outside of all minds. And I doubt we have any obligations to the environment. The environment matters insofar as...

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

I am not sure what you mean by a 'naturalistic god'. The idea of a god is the idea of a person, whatever it may involve. But the natural world is surely not a person - it does not have a mind, with thoughts and desires. Potatoes do not feel, hope, or desire anything. And nor does the soil they grow...

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

It's generally difficult to interpret most abrahamic scriptures as teaching pantheist doctrine. What could easily be confused as pantheism is actually a statement of God’s alleged “omni-presence.” Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, yo...

Is it moral for our governments to impose poverty on us?

Is it moral for our governments to impose poverty on us? Taxation determines what poverty levels will exist within it’s demographic form. It controls the graph shown below. Governments control taxation and thus control poverty levels directly. Imagine if you will, the real truth of that taxation, if...
