People first, God second. Should people put themselves above God?
People first, God second. Should people put themselves above God?

Jesus put people above God and so should we. "Mark 2;27 And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: 28Therefore, the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."

I think that the world would be a better place if people put their wants and needs as well as the wants and needs of other people above God's.

I look at all the wealth that religions squander on themselves with huge churches and mosques, which are mostly empty, --- while many people still live in poverty and despair, --- and wonder if that wealth would be better spent on the poor. That would conform more to what Jesus taught us to do for the poor.

Governments seem to be of the same mindset as the religions as they spend lavishly on themselves while the poor go with their needs ignored.

I would think that religions would show the better mindset but that does not seem to be the case.

Before religions started thinking of God as a literal and real being, a more peaceful world, religiously speaking, home churches were the order of the day. Archeology has proven this. They were used as feeding stations for the poor and destitute and contributed more to the fellowship that people need more that the mega churches, temples and mosques that we have today.

Should we consider the benefits of the older ways and bring religion back into the homes where it's expression and help for the poor can be better served?

Seems to me that the religious crave a personal relationship with their God, and that is best expressed from homes and not from the self-aggrandizing mega monstrosities and opulent churches and mosques that advertise their wasted wealth in our cities.

Does charity really begin at home, by putting people first and not God?

I'd need to know which god before I can decide.

I think Scott Baculum displayed his acting talent in the tv show Quantum Leap? Sheep?

I see most Gods as immoral.

Which God are you putting first?

How does that God serve you?

You are aware of the Gods on offer.

Any of those strike you as worthy of you and your morals?

Dunno if they should, but if they do, they might as well go the whole hog.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

I agree.

If you can't see God in all, you can't see God at all.

Lol you think there is more than one G-d. Some Christian you are. You should read the Bible passages about false idols and the repercussions of believing them.

I am not a Christian. I am a Gnostic Christian.

If you think there is only one God then how would you interpret these?

Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Does "Gnostic" mean shitty? Cuz that's the kind of Christian you are.

My pastor says those passages are all referring to the one true G-d so I'm not sure what a ha moment you were looking for.

Strange that you would say such a thing when it is Christians that adore a genocidal son murdering God.
I guess that you too favor genocidal Gods.

Gnostic Christians do not favor Yahweh or Hitler for the same reasons.

True. I am not that stupid.

Further, a true Trinity would have all the heads equal. That is not the case with the stupid Christian trinity concept.

Strange how Christians can see a loving Jesus using genocide against them in Noah's day and even torturing and killing a baby as shown in the story of King David.

If that is your Jesus, you can have the prick.
