PS: The origin of this 'devil bullshit' of course comes from the church, the first priests on earth realized that they can manipulate people through their fears, which they tried to process and alleviate with prayers, rituals etc. using statues etc. That's how sin came into being, once there was sin, you could establish guilt, so people would feel bad about not going to the monthly ritual or church or whatever, which is rubbish of course, there is no sin, just high or low energy. Just as there is Yin and Yang, people ought to delve much more into eastern thought and philosophie, especially the Tao Te Ching in order to realize that the Western Churches are just greedy little clubs, trying to gain members, the more members the more money. Simple, really. And because this fear of God as a 'being' still persists in our society, a huge number of people continue to dwell inside their own little prison, dictated by the church, the government, and the media. They all use each other to create a vivious circle of information which doesn't allow the average Joe to look outside of that limited field of beliefs. The fact is, God doesn't give a shit what you do with your life, and he's not gonna fix it, either. You will have to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Life gives you exactly what you believe in, not more and not less.
Before I forget, a message for Jacob 30: Confusion comes from asking too many questions, if you want to eliminate confusion, eliminate a good deal of the questions you ask; just observe yourself and see what happens next.
P.S. is usually follewd by a letter which I see none of. And no good person swears. I hardly ask any questions. I feel no need to observe myself in a mirror unless my hair needs combing. Nothing in the Bible about God being still. In fact it tells us to be still. I have never been to prison. I'm 31 and have lived a good Christian life with no regrets. This confusion topic is a healthy warning. One which you should heed. No one wants to be manipulated. That is what the governemnt is there for. Just like the police only better. The church heals protects and cares for it's own. I don't know how unlucky your life is but I have had good churches wherever I have gone no complaints. I don't know what you are talking about when you say using statues. Truly you are crazy. Sin came into being through the devil and adam and eve. If you are protecting the devil that makes you the devil's advicate and a very bad and evil person. I don't feel bad about going/not going I go when I want to end of that story side's it's as healthy as eating or a good night's sleep God is in the midst of such a place and he inhabits the praises of his people which is a good thing cause it's what everyone needs if you say sin came into being then you cannot say it does not exist that is contradictory and a lie from the pit of Hell. Which is what you are: a liar. If you live in CHina and feel this way why don't you just crush those other churches like when china handed out weapons to north korea I believe it was. Chihna is the biggest communist nation from what I understand and most yin and yang has no substance to it truly I have heard nothing about yin and yang whereas God Jesus and the Holy Spirit are widely known. We do not live in a dictatorship and you should be happy and respectful of those over you. You are safe and will not be harmed if you do what is right. Joe is a homosexual I know. God made you and you should be thankful for that, but he i s not going to move your hands for you unless you've been injured. He takes good care of his people. And if you are not being taken care of I can sure see you as not being one of God's family which you know nothing about.
Talking about religion isn't allowed on chess.com. I thought this was a bit funny since it seems to contradict the poster's whole message:
Life gives you exactly what you believe in, not more and not less.
So is it bad to believe in this stuff or good since life gives you what you believe in? I'm confused. :-p
Honestly, though, stop arguing with each other. You're both just wasting your time since your minds are made. You're both just spouting BS meant to offend the other. Perhaps some of it has valid points, but mostly just nonsense that has nothing to do with the other's argument. I mean, China? Joe? Eastern Philosophy?
It was very rude of MCCSaturdayOpen for attacking someone's beliefs just for a comment like "confusion is of the devil." I'm sure his precious eastern philosophy looks down upon such, just as Christians are supposed to.
As for the whole thing about "P.S.," it makes sense if you go back and add it to a previous post.
Bla bla bla, come on dude, start breaking free from all this brainwashing or you'll perish from being in fear ;-) - and don't bother sending a reply, I won't be reading it, you have nothing inspiring to say, you're just one of those scared little sheep who follow along without having the guts to form an alternative, individual philosophy in life.
PS: [Letter or not, who gives a damn ;-)] The only 'good' christian churches are 'Unity' and 'Science Of Mind', for they at least tell people that money is NOT the root of all evil, it's a game you play with yourself and can be an act of generosity and goodwill. The 'love' of money is the root of all evil, yeah, but not money itself, it's just green little papers, it's the intention behind a financial transaction which gives money it's character. The guy who said 'money is the root of all evil' just didn't have any, we always make things bad which we want but don't have ;-))
Last but not least, my life is neither lucky nor unlucky, simply because there is no luck, you either take advantage of opportunities or you don't, very simple. Your usage of the word 'lucky' shows that you experience no real drive and direction in life, you are like a leaf in the wind, mercilessly blown around from thoughts that come from institutions which are designed to control you. That's weakness, not spiritual strength.
If you wanna pray to your 'God', pray for some initiative about finding the truth behind things, go out and live a little, take a bus to Greenland during the weekend or book a flight to the Seychelles, then Monday sip a Cappucino while doing laundry. Lighten up, dude! All the best, and as I said, don't bother about writing another message, I paid you more attention than you can obviously handle. And, thanks for calling me crazy, it makes me immensly proud. To be considered 'normal', 'average' or 'socially adept' would be the biggest embarrassment I can think of. ;-)
None of this made any sense was irrelevant hurtful and not very helpful. And I care about the ps thing. If you keep swearing I will report you.
Agree with everything except China. I believe I was using it as an example. And yes I thought it was funny he wrote so much after only one statement so I wrote back about as many words as he had sent me. Treating him how he wanted to be treated. ty.
btw I have never talked about religion in my life. I talk about Jesus.
and jesus is religous...
People who turn to Religion lose faith in themselves ;-), hell they even start worshipping dudes who lived 2000 Years ago! Life changed a lot since then, wouldn't you say so? What sense does it make to believe in a little book written by, say, maybe a bunch of jewish hippies, who apparently walked from Agpyt to the 'Promised Land' over a peroid of what, 40 years? A distance of 250 miles?? Yeah right, and then the story in the beginning of Genesis, where God made man and woman on the sixth day..then on the second page it syas, aeh, no, actually, God made Adam first, the he stuck him in the Garden of Eden, and after Adam got bored of living by himself in a botanical zoo, God decided to give him a sleeping tablet and fashion a woman for him, out of one of his own ribs...you can stuff that in your ears, boys !! Once and forever.
Grow up, live life, develop your own philosophies and beliefs, with a little common sense as to what MAKES sense and what doesn't ;-)
