    Oops sorry guys. Was going to create a thread about the benefits of theism, just as a sarcastic ploy to list a load of ridiculous stereo types and misconceptions about what it means to be a theist.

    Then I remembered, I'm not a forum newbie, or Fetchmyjunk.

    #1. Theism gives people a reasonable explanation on the origins of the universe and human life.

    #2 Sorry but a multiple answer: A real hope for a peaceful future because Jehovah promises in the near future that all death will be done away with as well as sickness, starvation with plenty of food for all because the planet earth will produce food to it's fullness. We will be at peace with all the animals. Satan will finally be gone. And finally all humans will be at peace wtih each other..........

    This is a criticism of both sides of this coin.

    Truth is, any self respecting human should make up their own beliefs according to the evidence of the world around. Those who do not end up possibly falling into systems of control ...

    #1 reason to be a theist is to stand on Jehovah's side and declare the excellencies of that One who called us out of darkness,
    (1 Peter 2:9) But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies” of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
    (Matthew 6:9, 10) “You must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.
    The sanctifying of God's Name Jehovah is the most important reason to be a Christian!

    It'll be interesting to see if you ever tackle your fellow Chistian Eladar over his demonstration of living the Christian life, at least as we see it here on this forum, regarding the "benefit" which you call "love of mankind".
