  • How do I make peace with God?
    God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life—abundant and eternal. Because of our nature, we are separated from God; we disobey God and go our own way. Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He died on the Cross for our sins and rose from the grave. In this way, Jesus bridges the gap between God and people. We must trust Jesus Christ and receive Him into our hearts by our personal invitation. How to Receive Jesus Christ. 1. Admit your need for forgiveness and peace. 2. Be willing to turn from your sins, believing that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. 3. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and be your Savior. As quickly as you can, please find a Bible teaching church, get involved in a Bible study, meet people who will provide encouragement and accountability. Email me if you have questions.

Ahhh..."The Golden Rule." Now there's a principle to live by--one that Jesus taught. The rule that summed up all of the "rules" (Law) that Moses taught which he claims came from God.

I appreciate the argument, and didn't notice the tone. But I wonder what's so bad about believing in God?


The one hard and fast rule that I can think of is "the Golden Rule". In many ways it renders the rest superfluous. I come from a religious background. I know how deep that teaching goes. I know how important it is.

I want to apologise for being flippant. I regretted it as soon as I hit send (and then there was a crash, and it somehow got sent again). I guess I just wanted to point out that a belief like the one in God, when taken out of religion, is a pretty good indicator of either childishness, or insanity. I apologise for the tone, not the argument.

I don't believe in God anymore. I believe that if Jesus existed, he was a pretty smart guy. So was the Buddha. And Lao Tse. An Confucius. And Moses and Abraham, etc. And what they all said, when you get right down to it was, "Be nice to each other."

I wasn't. I'm sorry.


Brett, thanks for that insight. I understand why you would choose not to believe the Bible. Are there any others' teachings you think worthy of application to your life?


Atheists don't care what the Bible says.

However, we suspect people who have imaginary friends are insane.
