    Your Own Religion :)

    Imagine you were to start your own religion!

    What would, say, your primary seven commandments be?

    Base these on what message you think your followers would most benefit from.

    Who would you target, as members, and how would you best reach them? Perhaps you would look to those discontent with mainstream religion?

    Would you borrow from other cultures, and ideas?

    Be creative :)

    First I'd make the son of God just like one of the boys. Not only that, but just like your next door neighbor. If you need a friend, he's there at the back fence waiting to talk.

    I'd tell them that all their sins are forgiven, regardless of their transgressions.

    I'd tell them that not only will they be saved, but they'll be just like the son of God. Afterall, why can't they be just as important as their leader.

    I'd tell them they'll all be co-heirs with the son of God in heaven. With that kind of guarantee, I'm bound to attract a lot of believers.

    Then, I'd . . . Hey, wait a minute. Didn't Paul say all these things? You know, I don't think I can come up with a better religion than Paul. Sorry, but those gospel writers and Paul got it right.

    I give up.

    i found this!?

    Imo, and from all that I feel, I believe that if there was a creator, he would wish us to learn, to question, use our imagination, and not 'punish' us for all eternity for doing so, then coming up with conclusions that may not fit in with his.

    If there is a god, he would not, imo, wish us to remain in obscurity, mysticism, and so on, he would want us to discover real truth, even if this meant challenging conventional thought.

    Those read like wise words, Lex, whoever wrote them.

    I would imagine he is some sort of genius, and probably damn handsome, to boot.

    God would be scientifically verifiable; his existence would be easily proven. It would not be a question of whether or not to believe in his existence, but whether or not you wanted to become a follower.

    Sounds like what might have happened. Assuming, Jesus was God, which I believe, then there were humans who encountered Him on earth. The end of the story however is very sad. They murdered God.

    the bad part is He let them do it, thus continuing the mystery!? : :spin2: :

    Why he did that was revealed and remains the center, the focus of Christianity:He shed His blood and He sacrificed His life for the forgiveness of our sins. I mean, that is basic Jesus 101.
