I think you meant to say Glenn Beck.
no i doesn't. my beliefs are different but i'm not gonna say anyone is a bad person for thinking differently.
everyone has different morals.
Its logically incoherent to say everybody has different morals, if a serial killer for example thinks its morally accepted to murder, doesn't make it morally right to murder. Furthermore, there must a supreme moral law not determined by society of right and wrong, it is not for any individual to decide.
So you are saying that individuals can not chose their own morals? You are wrong. Everyone has different morals based on how they were raised. The serial killer is a bad example because most serial killers have no morals at all due to 1 or more psychotic disorders they may have. If any killer says they are doing it for moral reasons, it would be those crazy pro-lifers that kill doctors (not saying everyone does). Anyway, people are religious and are told morals OR they are not so religious and draw out their own-but they are still good people
You are not getting it. Yes, murder is wrong and its illegal (higher law as you say) but murder is a bad example because pretty much nobody murders because they find it morally correct, maybe like 2 people. I'm talking about people who are not christian, they have their own morals too (and they dont involve murder). Just because someone is not following 'the word of god' does not mean that they are incapable of having morals. You are trying to argue that people who are not super religious cant be good people because they evidently cant have their own morals. 2 individuals can have different morals: ex. person A finds premarital sex to be wrong, yet person B does not but is in a loving relationship and doesnt sleep around with everyone. this post isnt about murder, its about premarital sex (which is not the same as killing someone) Person B is not a bad person, they can do good things for others and take the high road in any situation.
I'll even use myself as an example: I am agnostic and do believe in a higher power, I just do not believe that this supreme being is watching my every move and action and that I have to alter my life to what this being 'wants'. This does not make me a bad person, I respect others around me, Im very kind, and always helpful when I can be. I believe in karma, and that if I put out good it will come back to me. I just dont restrict myself, based on ancient writings. I have nothing against people that do, especially if it makes them happy and they feel fulfilled with life. I just dont like it when people would think of me as a bad person, because of my different ideas on life.
Lets begin, I never stated illegal is a higher law. Second of all i only used murder to demonstrate an example doing anything immoral I'm not stating many people do that. Furthermore, you miss understand me i never said nonreligious people couldn't have morals. Also, I never stated people were bad or good i only state whether the act is immoral. Lastly, by definition it is impossible to be an agnostic and a theist. Agnosticism is the view that the truth value of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, but also other religious and metaphysical claims—is unknown or unknowable. I never mentioned any supreme being i only stated that moral laws must be objective and cannot be viewed as opinions by individuals or they have no meaning. People who think you may be bad are ignorant but anyways its good that you use logically reasoning to defend your beliefs unlike most people. I do find these philosophical arguments rather a...
philosophical arguments are difficult lol...If you scrolled further down on the Wikipedia page, you would have reached the different types of agnosticism: Agnostic theism
The view of those who do not claim to know of the existence of any deity, but still believe in such an existence.
I didnt say i knew there was a higher power, i just believe in one. And the things that have convinced me are science and sacred geometry, and even anatomy courses. Im not denying the possibility that there is no higher power. I am not trying to argue, just simply state there are different types of agnosticism, I am open to different possibilities, and am not being absolute about anything
The phrase "logically incoherent" is somewhat of an oxymoron.
Not in the context it was used in. I wasn't used in the sense as if what she said was logical and incoherent, in that case it would be an oxymoron. The context it was used in was that use logical it was possible to determine her statement was incoherent, thereby making it not an oxymoron.
That is why it is "somewhat of an oxymoron", not indisputable oxymoron. I get what you are saying though.
Slutwhores are not bad ppl.
At first I thought you had said does make you a bad person, but anyways, no I don't think so, as long as you're smart about it and careful.
okay really, 'against the bible'? the bible was written a long, long time ago. most of those 'rules' were meant for the time period. these are modern days, and you follow modern versions of the rules. the no sex before marriage was because back then there wasnt effective birth control. if people went around having sex they would have tons of STD's and many would get pregnant. waiting till marriage meant you would be, ideally, exclusive to one person and STD's wouldnt be an issue, and having kids was fine because you were in a committed, likely life-long relationship. now, theres birth control. as long as you are responsible and dont go around humping anything that breathes, you should be fine and not have to worry about STD's and pregnancy.
I agree with you partially about the "it was because of non0effective birth-control", but not for Christians. God says that it's something to be between a man and a wife,t he closest form of love.
What passage did you get that from?
Some of us aren't Christians, so forgiveness is not a big deal. As long as you are in a loving relationship and stay faithful, you arent a bad person. Today is different, marriage isnt for everybody anyway. Whats the point in everyone waiting til marraige if 50% of marriages end in divorce?
Don't speak for all religious people. this is to anyone.
i am very religious and you saw what i wrote. so it pisses me off when people say "Christians..." as if we all think the same.
Umm technically you're supposed too. Christians all have to follow the same rules of the Bible. Having sex before marriage doesn't make you a bad person, it just makes you a sinner and you will have to repent before Christ for forgiveness.
Find me the passage in the Bible that states having sex before marriage is a sin. It's not in there I promise you.
umm no thank you. i'm not a robot. Christianity is a religion. i more have a relationship with god, so i don't want to have sex b4 marriage cuz it's my choice, not my religions.
How can you just chose to ignore the Bible?? What are you basing your religion off of then? And what God do you have a relationship with because it's not the Christian God if you do not try to follow the Bible. It is also your choice to not have sex before marriage, but it's also a religious choice, if you are religious. If you're an atheist then it's just a choice.
Some people chose to use the Bible as rough guidelines, because they do not believe it was written by God, it was written by people. And I think Christians should use their own brains (which God gave us) and situation ethics to figure out the right thing to do, God did not want us to be complete morons and follow a book, which frankly constantly contradicts itself and has a LOT of questionable and sexist statements in there.
Actually, if you study the Bible, legit, all contradictions disappear.
haha, i know MANY Christians who ignore the bible. divorce? says in the bible you can't. are you gonna tell them they are not Christian?
technically, christians are supposed to be people who have a relationship with God and does what he asked (what's in the bible) because they choose to. Some people are pretending to be christians when they really aren't, and make a lot of people hate christians in general
thats not my fault if they hate Christians, that is their problem and does less to me then it does to them.
i understand why some people think Christians are crazy because of all those crazy conserv. saying that 'God hates fags' which is absolutely not true.
i go to a conserv. church, but i am very open minded.
Saying you are not a robot because you don't follow the bible is dumb. That's like saying you ARE a robot because you follow the laws in your state. The bible is the WORD OF GOD, and it matters just as much to follow the bible as it matters to follow the rules your government lays down for you to follow, or you will face the consequences.
God gave us free will to follow this laws or not. faith in him is what gets me into heaven, following this laws gives me blessings.
i say i'm not a robot because i hate it when people say that i do everything i am told is right. i have my own mind and thoughts.
If you don't ask for forgiveness for sins, god will judge you for them on your way to Heaven. Even if you have faith in him, it's not an automatic pass to heaven. You must abide by his teachings, or ask for forgiveness when unable. God understands we, as humans, are prone to sin. That's why he gave his only son to cleanse our souls for us when we do make mistakes.
yea, no sins enter heaven. but it also says, "no one is with out sin" and no one is holy.
Really? Because in the Bible is says that you need more than faith to receive passage into Heaven.
Yet again some hating comments. amirite? is a place to share your OPINIONS, amirite? Meaning that was an honest opinion.
I am a christian and just because I am a christian doesnt mean I am just going to wait until mariage to have sex because the bible says to, I believe that you have sex with someone when you are in LOVE with them and that can happen in or out of marriage, it is for you to decide whether or not you will do that.
Okay, the point of this was it doesn't make you a bad person, which it doesn't.
Heck, if we are all the product of original sin even those of you that believe premarital sex is a sin have to understand how it does not make you a "bad" person because we are all of sin and will all sin. God knows this and loves unconditionally, all that is expected is that you try to live your life to the best of your ability, don't break the 10 commandments, and have faith.
Nothing wrong with premarital sex, just don't slut it up and be wise who you do it with and protect yourself.
What are you supposed to tell your husband one day... yeah honest sorry but I couldn't wait for you so I had sex with 5other guys. But I was IN LOVE with them then! I'd be mad. Ill stay a virgin so I'm not taking any baggage with me in any relationship I enter.
good luck finding a dude thats a virgin, i know they exist an all but still. Also, I think a mature person would not mind if their partner was not a virgin-unless its something they lied about or kept secret for some lame reason-its just different today. And not everyone feels the need to be married, just cus society says thats the thing you should do.
I am a mature person. And I didn't say I'm only going to date virgins, I would just prefer it.
If my husband thought I was a bad person because of the number of sexual partners I had, I would dump him. PS: I love your username. The Princess Bride is my favorite book and movie.
As long as it's with the person you're getting married to.
