It's not Mothers' Day, but with all the daffodils and crocuses coming up, it just might be time to drag out a Mother's Day sermon. After all, it's Women's History Month, and this is, historically, what it's like to be a woman listening to this kind of sermon every year on Mothers' Day. Yeah, you get to hear about what an evil slut you are. I suddenly realize that it's pretty damned easy to find something… Continue

This clip comes to us from Dave Grubin, who is in fact not an 80's tv action/adventure beefcake personality. He is a Vinyl Preacher, for all intents and purposes. He makes Christianity all mystical and New-Agey, while retaining that Ol' Time Religion. Who else can do that?
Another way to listen to Mondo Diablo is to go to… Continue

While I was in the Army, stationed in The Republic of Panama, I started getting involved with hermeneutics. I was stationed there for 15 months and had a lot of free time to fill. I studied using The Continue
Amplified Bible that was given to me as a gift from a good friend of
mine, in addition to other study books. Here is a quote from the web
site of The Amplified Bible about why it was made; “It attempts to take
both word meaning and context into account in order to…

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.
1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

Other adherents will offer this option to me, “If you only would trust your heart, then you would know that God is real.” To this I say, “I have followed what I felt was the Lord's leading in my life for many things as surely as you feel that you are now.” This also includes for family, friends, in jobs, relationships, where to go for trips and much more. There is not a single area that I didn't try to “bring under” the power of God. Even my marriage. But the facts of reality must be… Continue

When I recently visited a Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints in Ponca City, Oklahoma, this was shown not to be the case. To give a little background, before I proceed, would be helpful. While I was serving in the Army, one of my roommate’s was a Mormon from Idaho. I think our commanding Sargent thought it would be a “good” idea to put the more outspoken religious believers together to make sure they wouldn't mess with the men that wanted to go out, party and have girlfriends, while… Continue

In both of science and religions areas of my life, I have many more experiences that added to both my understanding of the natural world and understanding about Christianity and religion. In high school, I was fortunate to take almost every science class that was offered. I even became a science proctor, [that is a teacher's aide or assistant]. The classes I took included: General Science, Biology,(two years) Chemistry, Astronomy, Physics, and Zoology. The only two classes I didn't take that… Continue

First, ask if they believe if the Old Testament still applies to a Christian Today. This will guide the rest of the discussion. As stated earlier, many fundamentalist state that they think the Bible is free of errors and contradictions. For my purpose and definition I would call “free of errors” as meaning that internally or externally is there anything inconsistent with the or contradictory in the text of the Bible or reflected in reality.
The good thing about this… Continue

The fourth largest group of adherents are the Hindu. Most of these adherents are from the India and Asian subcontinent. I have a visited a lot of hotels around the country and it seems like most of the Indian Hindu run these hotels. Oddly enough they all seem to have the last name “Patel”. I am not sure what it is about their religion or culture that attracts them to the hotel business but they do, indeed, seem to have an attraction for it.
After the Hindu, the rest of the World's… Continue

It is fair to recognize the good that the religious adherents do again. After all, my forefathers came to this country to experience and escape
religious persecution of Europe. Religious America has allowed many
sorts of views of religion to live in a relatively peaceful manor. The
Puritans, Quakers, Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians,…

Religion has truly surpassed the power of every invention that has followed it. As the
Bronze Age, Iron age, middle ages, the age of enlightenment and the
Modern ages have come and gone and gone, religion has been the enemy of
progress every step of the way. To the faithful, things like the Hubble
Space Telescope, nuclear weapons, and climate change are nothing
compared to the power of a faith that believes in a god. If anything man can… Continue

In the beginning was the word, and the word was, like all words, a human invention, to label something that humans want to label. This gave shape to a concept that eventually led to an ontological fallacy (God-the-greatest-thing-I-can-imagine does indeed exist as a concept
- that's the whole point - but that doesn't mean that God-the-greatest-thing-I-can-imagine also exists) ...
Whether a word represents 'the truth' is beside the point -… Continue

hose who claim to believe in "absolute" moralities usually don't actually follow them, and don't even pretend to try.
A few years back I decided to study the ethical teachings of Jesus. I sat down with a notebook and pen and a Bible, and (over the course of a week, off and on) read through the four Gospels, taking note every time Jesus said something about what we should DO. I skipped through the biography,… Continue
