BibliFact Roundup #2: Bible-n-Eggs with the President

Commented Apr 24, 2012 at 16:26:28 in Religion

“As a society develops individuals tend to depend more on their own reasoning and capabilities to provide for their security and answer questions about life. It is usually through life tragedies or difficult circumstances that people realize how fragile and vulnerable life really is and how little control they do in fact have over their life. This is why Jesus said it is easier for a rich man to pass through the eye of a needle than to enter through the gates of heaven. It has nothing to do with this man's wealth, but rather that wealth and status are usually associated with increased self reliance. This is a good point that you made- but it really has nothing to do with evidence for or against God. More so it just shows a trend in human nature for when we are open to thinking of life outside of ourselves and what circumstances cause us to be more self reliant and self focused.”

BibliFact Roundup #2: Bible-n-Eggs with the President

“Agreed. Either take it or leave it. Believe it or don't. I don't understand why Christians are so afraid to actually have any faith. Isn't it obvious that it is just as logical to believe things were created than to believe everything came from nothing? Is it really more a leap of faith to believe that life is intention than it is to belief everything just perfectly "poofed" out of nothingness? To create a spacecraft takes years of many peoples lives to design and perfect, and that machine doesn't even begin to match the glory of the great space it seeks to explore. It seems so obvious that those who proclaim "no faith" really have quite a strong faith that has even less answers and more perplexing assumptions than religion. It's so strange to me...”

“Religion is an establishment, but faith is a worldview- and we all have one. We all have a lens through which we see the world and make decisions. It is ignorant to think that it is even possible to separate a persons faith from their ideas, values, and beliefs. If a person's worldview is Christian, Islamic, or Jewish based how is that any different than a person who says they have no religion and their worldview is based on a humanistic or natural view. Either way, your values are shaped by a belief system. Most likely your belief system (whether after studying a religious text or other studies) is based on research and self exploration to determine your personal view of the world. What should be avoided in politics is not banning all individuals with a certain worldview (such as religious) but rather we should avoid the toxic thought that one worldview is better than another. The essence of America is that we all come together, respecting our different worldviews, and seek to better the country together.”
