    Any Coach Flo news?

    I’m curious as well. I like Coach Flo, but I’m afraid a change needs to be made sooner rather than later.

    And I the same for you. I am a follow of Christ but miss the mark so many times DAILY. Many times I read things in His word that is still hard for me to grasp. But I try to live by the words of Micah 6:8.... He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of youbut to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    But they aren't truly followers of Christ. You are right, throughout history, people have done some heinous things under the banner of "Christianity". What I am trying to say is that if you read the teaching of Christ and TRY everyday to live by the examples He lived out on earth, there wouldn't be the horrors in the world that we see today and those people would have never committed those horrible acts. But claiming to be something and then doing something that is completely contrary to the teachings of what you say you are, shows that those people are only wolves in sheep's clothing.

    I'm sorry if I ruffled your feathers, it's just that you threw out a very serious accusation. Your words were that you see "all the time", I just thought you could perhaps give us at least 2 or 3 good examples of what you've claimed to have seen firsthand.

    Nope, nope, and nope. You can claim to be anything you want, but if your actions prove contrary, then you are not what you claim to be. McVeigh was agnostic, didn't believe there was a heaven or hell, so I have no idea where you came up with that. Eric Rudolph attended a Christian Identity church. They espouse a racist and white supremacist view of Christianity, but those views are denounced by true followers of Christ. Conditt was a part of a "Christian" survivalist group who's views don't align with a true follower of Christ. Also, mental illness I would bet played a HUGE role in all three's actions. You can call yourself a vegetarian, but if you go around eating meat, a vegetarian you are not.

    So you give one example even though you see it “all the time locally”? Is this where you are employed? Do you have ALL the facts that were involved in one person getting hired over another? How did the one hiring know that the other applicant “wasn’t into church”? How do you know there weren’t other Christians who applied for the same job that were passed over, too? If you see it “all the time locally” surely you can give a few more examples that could definitively point towards a bias??

    Can you give us a few specific examples of what you've seen?

    And that’s the thing: if you take Christianity out of the equation and simply look at the teachings of Christ and how He instructed us to live our lives, how much better would the world be if we all TRIED to follow His example? I put tried in all caps because that’s all any of us in our imperfect states can do. Try. Being a follower of Christ doesn’t make you perfect, but it points you to a perfect example of how you should TRY to live your life.

    I don’t think atheism means what you think it means. Merriam-Webster defines it as: 1a : a lack of belief or a strong disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods b : a philosophical or religious position characterized by disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods 2archaic : godlessness especially in conduct : ungodliness, wickedness

    And you are trying to turn a conversation into something it is not. You weren’t talking about the separation of church and state, you were talking about how atheism couldn’t be a “religion”.

    One of the definitions of religion is: : a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

    It may not state it as such, but is it not implied? For a species to exist, it has to have evolved/mutated from another species? Perhaps I should have said the evolutionary history of life tries to have us believe we came from pond scum?

    Very well said. I believe that intelligent design and certain “levels” of evolution can coexist and very well be a part of His design. The theory of evolution that has us believe that we evolved from pond scum through millions of statistically impossible occurrences to me takes greater faith than believing in a Divine Creator.
