Sorry to Christians, however, amidst a lack of proof of God, ministers who only want money, judgmental congregations, ad fake happiness. I wanted to comment on a subject that bugs me horribly. Now, looking and questioning my religion that affected me for the first 30 years of my life, I see I am no better off than others. I see people brain-washed and mesmerized by influential speakers. I see people spurting out quotes written by “men” (not God) in a book not in touch with our times. I see fictional tales to teach weak-minded people morality. I see good men change their own lives for the better and instead of patting himself on the back, he thanks God. God, in my mind, seems to be what people would psychologically call a portion of themselves that wants better and improvement. I feel God is just a way to access strength (psychologically)when some may perceive they don’t have any. By the way, I also have a problem seeing others give to a church who has money for their bills when these same people can’t make their own bills. Lastly, I’m tired of ignorant people (close-minded, uneducated) telling me about the invisible man, and how he died for my sins, and how he watches when I do something wrong, and telling me how to live. It’s like getting investment advice from a homeless person.

I’m wondering if anyone else has been converted to think for themselves and take a stand against old world thought. I have watched myself, through the years, go through denial and fear over my thoughts and questions, to dabble in other philosophies, to standing outside the Christian groups and seeing how naive a lot of this scripture-quoting sounds. Anyone like to add their two cents? I am curious to hear from other converts, and maybe some love. Christians, by all means, bash away, that’s what Jesus would do, right?

We’re now going to broadcast Christian music (1 cd per week) over the telephone system’s speakers, and we’ll no longer be playing out personal radios in our offices. This is a Human Resources company, with absolutely no religious affiliations whatsoever. Is it legal for my employer to force the whole staff to listen Dove Award winning Christian R&B for 37.5 hours per week here in the USA?
It will play over the telephones so that it can be heard in the office when that phone isn’t being used.
Even though we’re an HR company, we fired the last person with an actual HR degree because she kept telling the owners what they could, and could not do. So, NO, we have nobody left who knows the actual HR laws we’re supposed to be experts in.

Mikes and speakers in Mapparium ?

My husband and I have recently visited the Mapparium at the Christian Science Library in Boston. A few days after the visit, I actually realized why my husband wasn’t so impresed with his visit : he was sure there were microphones and speakers inside the sphere to amplify the voices of visitors. He thought that the particular acoustic of the place was actually due to an artificial voice amplifying system. I assured him that the acoustic within the Mapparium is all natural and due to the shape (shperic) and the material (stain glass) of the place but he won’t beleive me. I know there are speakers for the presentation (visual and sound effect) but what about for the visitor’s voice ? I looked everywhere on the internet and I even found result of a research about the acoustic of the place but nowhere is it written that the “whispering gallery effect” one can experience within the Mapparium isn’t helped by any microphones/speakers device. Can you help me convince my husband ?!

I go to a Christian school and we have a chapel every week and there are always people performing Christians songs before the speaker comes and speaks. I haven’t seen anyone perform a guitar solo during a song, but that may be because they aren’t quite up to that skill level yet. I am just wondering if some people might think it would be taking the glory from God and putting it on myself. I would like to think I am giving more glory to God because I am displaying a skill that he has given me, but some people might think otherwise.. What are your thoughts?

Everybody I know who speaks English as their 1st language thinks it would be an abomination to name their kid Jesus, but Spanish speakers use the name Jesus all the time. Is this name from a different source and only looks the same as the Christian savior, or do they not see it in the same light?

Can you cite any evidence recorded online?

Yes, I realize that this outspoken and popular Christian Evangelical anti-evolution speaker is in federal prison at present but I’m asking about his long-term ministry (which I assume is still operating through the help of his son and wife while he is in prison.) I had never heard anything about him being anti-Semitic so if this is just nonsense concocted by his critics, I would like to know. (Otherwise, it gives me yet another reason to consider his “ministry” mostly nonsense.)

Christian Entertainment…Help?

Ok i’m hosting a christian youth event ages 14-21 and its a weekend event i need great chirstian guest who are entertaining…previous years i have had comedians and insprational speakers any ideas

I just don’t understand they tolerated a witch (this woman was something like wiccan i believe) coming into my child’s school, which i raised no objections to, but it was a problem when i suggested that a speaker come in to talk about Jesus. You thought I was going to get these people fired when I mentioned jesus.
And just to clarify the wiccan was talking about her beliefs. Something about fairies and their ilk. Really couldn’t get it. that came from my child.

Hello everyone, i am a christian myself and for our christmas church service i’ve been asked to preach. This is my first time speaking and i’m extremely nervous about what to say. There are several speakers and i’ve to talk about the actual birth of jesus and the significance of how unexpected it was that the king of kings was born in a dirty old barn,also how humble he was.This is troubling me, any suggestions or links would greatly be appreciated.
