    Should a Christian religion ignor Biblical laws and commands and believe in man made doctrines that fit their beliefs?
    One example would be repeating prayers over and over....

    Yes, all Christians should ignore the Bible. 😉

    I have always found it interesting how the Bible is held in such esteem over any other writings. It seems to show a profound ignorance of where the Bible came from - but the real reason is probably more complicated.
    Why should a book that was chosen to be included in the Bible be called a 'Biblical law' whilst a book that was left out be called 'man made doctrine'?
    What makes you so sure that some ancient historian who wrote "Kings" is some how more likely to have been inspired by God than the Pope?

    Yes I know about verses referring to "scripture" being inspired, but it is far from clear what is or is not "scripture".

    where did it come from?

    one more question, why do you insist on coming to the spirituality forum with no spirituality?

    All Christians - and I mean all - pick and choose which Biblical laws and commandments that they are going to follow or ignore. No one follows all of them.

    I have a number of reasons for coming here, what I don't get is why 'having spirituality' (whatever that is) should be one of them. I rather doubt that you come here because you 'have spirituality'.
    You sure don't 'have science' but that never kept you out of the science forum.

    We should know that the bible was not written for an audience to read two thousands years later. The mankind has progressed. We know much more about politics, science, psycology, and a lot of other stuff, that weren't available at those days the bible was written.

    The bible is interpretable in a number of ways, that's the reason that the christianity is divided in so many fractions.

    I'm a Christian and Badwater is right on this one.

    because the spirituality forum is a place for discussing things of a spiritual nature, that is why, but you people are content to discuss non spirituality, why i do not know? you are simply content to tear away, nothing constructive is ever proffered, do you enjoy destroying rather than creating? what is it with you people?

    Secondly my reasons for going to the science forum have no bearing on this and for your information i have discussed only recently electronics and some circuits that we devised at home, a close circuit alarm and a lie detector (a pity its not a cyber version) which works on the principle that a moist skin offers less resistance than a dry one, the Stirling engine and its conversion of thermal energy in to electrical energy and its components, you shall be pleased to state which parts are unscientific or suffer the indignation of having to retract your statement.

    anyone who believes in a global flood, in the adam and eve story, and in the genesis account of creation is anything but scientifical.


    what you just said is only proof that you can function to a certain degree in society. if you would make a god powered lie detector i guess you should be locked away in a mental institution in any country in the world.

    do you have anything new, constructive, interesting, educational, edifying or even remotely bordering on true to state? perhaps a saying of wisdom? some proverbial utterance perhaps? some spiritual gem? or must we be subject to your delusional prejudices honed through years of misunderstanding and lack of spirituality?

    Isn't Twhitehead a member of the "spirituality seekers" clan? This would tell me he more than just a mere dour detractor and has a lot to offer this forum.
    He often cam e up against me as a skeptic in my early days on this forum.
    I like him. He's intelligent and his questions are usually spot on. Keep it up Whitey.

    I say it is.

    When religious people want to discuss non-scientific things, like intelligent design or any other religious things, in the Science Forum I have the same objection.

    So of course it has bearing.

    perhaps you can show where he has proffered some spiritual insight, for as far as i can discern he is simply content to tear away at the spirituality of others with nothing but non spirituality, vague assertions of ignorance, pretence of knowledge and a total apathy towards those who do not share his views on the emergence and diversity of life.
