relationship to your physical body?

being is and his/her physical body -- that I am NOT my physical

temptation to discount who and what the Christian Bible tells you you
are. When you are finished, ask yourself: Who am

re-state them in your own words.

Big D Thank you, Stoney, I
couldn't have said it better, myself. Now
I have three important questions for you.
Then please ask.
Does any of what you've just paraphrased directly out
of the Christian Bible sound, look, or make you feel
as if you are:
or a groveling-in-the-mud, inherently-evil
sinner who's destiny is to burn in hell forever unless
you are obedient to an
violent, vengeful, easily-displeased,
sitting on a throne somewhere above the clouds that
surround planet Earth?
Big D Did anything you just
said indicate that you must belong to a church to find
Did anything you just said indicate that you are
As a reporter who writes human interest stories you've
talked rather intimately with several hundred of people from
all walks of life. Is that true?
Yes. I've conducted
over 2,000 interviews.
Then, you must know that the inherently evil story
just doesn't match common human behavior.
You are correct.
Of course, there are ignorant, mentally-dysfunctional
and/or desperate people who do evil things, but what
about the average person?
They are kind, loving, and
How many times have you heard about people risking
their lives to save the life of a stranger?
How many times have you heard people say something
like, "I want to make the world a better place."
"How can I help?" "I want to make a contribution
Too many times to even count.
Then why do most fundamentalist Christians perceive
themselves as church-dependent, groveling-in-the-mud,
inherently-evil sinners who are separate from God,
separate from nature and separate from each other?
Because they have been sold a
bill of goods by those who have a vested interest in
keeping them in the role of
servants and cash cows.
And the sheep, with mindless obedience, have accepted
the non-Bible-supported illusions that the
fundamentalist Christian leaders peddle as if it were
the "Absolute, Gospel Truth."
So you're telling me that those
who refuse to think for themselves are not living
according to the Christian Bible, but are instead,
being deceived and misled lead by false profits?
Yes! By the wolves in sheep's clothing.
And please remember, I'm not telling you this.
The evidence is!
Yes, Have you ever seen or heard and evidence anywhere
that indicates that the Creator/God (The Source of the
universe) wants, needs, or desires to be
