Like "surely die on the day you eat" means exactly that until they don't die and you start splitting it unto "physical and spiritual death"?

BassReeves:And what might that ingredient be if not that you must ask and knock and seek with all your heart and soul and mind and being for the proper understanding of God, instead of merely looking with blinded eyes through murky glass and thinking like a child and trembling like demons?

Meaning collecting stamps and not collecting stamps are both religions. Car racing is a religion. Motorcycle racing is a religion. Swimming is a religion. Bird watching is a religion. Dog breeding is a religion. And if you don't do any sport at all that's also a religion.
You miss out the ingredients that makes up a true and pure religion, one without flaws or faults.
Nope according to you anything can be a religion.

Very correct, they can be your gods just like the whites are your gods.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by DavidAO(m): 4:00pm On Jun 07|
Lol, it’s ok. I understand your premises. Well if you have read any of my publications you’ll see I don’t tell you what anything is. Your stance is bc you’re judging my words without actually see it. That affects your ability to judge me fairly.
Life is a place of realization. Everyone must realize themselves irrespective whether or not they wish too. That’s the whole point of judgement. A person must realize themselves now, later or at the point of death. Whether they like it or not.
That’s said, I try not to appreciate wiki or any answer there is about life unless the one that genuinely comes from a responder. If a responder answers me with their own answers, whether right or wrong, then it’s a necessary to correct them or learn from them.
When a person tells you to go check wiki for an answer, you’ll know they did not reflect on such issue which is bad for growth for either of us bc. it’ll just be an external person’s reality that creates our reality. If you see the way I highlighted my reply to the dear fellow, you’ll observe I did my research on the matter before talking. Which is how everyone should endeavor to do to things, even the ones they think they already know.
Life is a place of deception. The illusion sector is the most expensive sector of the world. If you were aware of this, you’d understand what I’m saying. Every information you can possibly find is already tainted. The only information that’s genuine comes from you and I and it’s ok to welcome such, However wrong or right. A person who realizes he’s wrong is he who has grown but the one who doesn’t continue in the same stagnant place. No one who’s come to awareness appreciate wiki or the popular things thought in educations bc it’s all just a deception. Do ur research too on this.
We’re all learning here you know? Neither of us already knows everything, if we did then we should be already dead. I called out Mr. Buda pattern of response bc it’s the popular pattern of response. People not wanting to be wrong so they go online to pick a point and stand on it whereby causing an unnecessary mental rancor when there shouldn’t. See if I do not know anything then I do not discus on it. I’ll rather ask questions and I suppose every reasonable person does that too.
What the dear fellow said was that he’d either learn or teach. I happen to know the topic of subject and I corrected his actions by stating the obvious which he did and said, most people are deceived for his kind of actions. And yes most people are deceived for such actions. Aren’t they? This shouldn’t cause a rancor for anyone who wishes to learn. If it did, you’re the culprit here.
Lastly, I introduced my publications not bc I had told anyone what life is. It’s ok if you’re presumptions on it. Don’t worry, one day, you’ll get to read something of mine as the Lord lives and you’ll see how I write. I do not draw a conclusion whatsoever about life, I just explain the things we can all see in a way that any reader will come to their own realization of the truth.
How will my writings create the spur for a reader when I already made the conclusion for them? I don’t tell anyone what life is. I write to help people realize the truth. My contents is to help people become aware of the things they never notice, and that’s just about all I do.
I do not think you realize that I actually did take a part of the law of thermodynamics the other day. It’s not like I didn’t know what I did. We view life from different angles and as such our reality must be different. You can claim not to know what the universe is. That’s ok for you. For me, I have become aware of certain things that has affected my knowledge of the universe or the earth. So I didn’t misquote anything. I just used the information as relevant as needed. Even if Einstein was alive today, he’d have realized better but his followers are trapped in his view of almost a century ago.
You actually attacked me from the very first time of our encounter and I see that you did bc I’m explaining reality in a different way. That’s what I do man. I know you might not know this yet but that’s what I do. I open up life in a way that anyone can feed on it. I try to expound on things we know and break complex illusions to help everyone see life better
If you can move pass this, get a copy of my work pls. And If you do not think you can move pass this. May peace find you and also rest with me ���

The perspective as given by the Power of Christ that is within, my Lord, is what I try night and day to make be seen.
Seek ye therefore Wisdom and Understanding and all things will be yours.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 4:23pm On Jun 07|
This was in your response to buda:
I also use this medium to introduce my publication to you. It’s titled the science of God and life. If you have a little token to spare and the time to read and explore what life is, get a copy at the link below. It’s more packed than anything you’ve ever seen.
You make it clear that you have unique insights of what life is or do you deny that?
My first response to you:
I didn't attack you, I corrected an often misquoted science fact.
I am always willing to discuss without acrimony but when you write bullcrap I won't hesitate to call it what it is.

LordReed:Exactmundo. Hole in one. However would you say they are pure and true religions, religion
LordReed:Anything can be religion, so far its a pursuit, but is it virtuous?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 4:59pm On Jun 07|
So yeah being on Nairaland is a religion. What does it matter which is true when all you do is a religion of one form or another? You are a poly religionist anyway.
BTW lemme ask you do you think religion should be taxed or tax free?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 5:25pm On Jun 07|
You both are using 'religion' to rightly mean "an understanding by which a life is lived", as well as in the sense of "that which is religiously done", as in done diligently and regularly, like posting on Nairaland.
Fact is, one can practise any religion, which in itself may be right or wrong, in a right or wrong way. One could for instance be a Muslim who murders or a Lord Lord Christian who can't turn the other cheek once or a footballer who does not train instead of a Muslim who follows the five pillars of the faith or a Christian who loves one's neighbours and ones enemies even more so or a footballer who regularly trains to hone her skills.
Noisy gongs and clanging cymbals, you see, can exist in just about everything we do mindlessly and wrong, so doing right whatever one does matters a lot.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 5:37pm On Jun 07|
Yes my dear buda but then he attempts a distinction between true and false religion while practicing both. That is a monumental contradiction.

It is at this point that I get to say, one must love one's neighbour as one loves oneself and one's enemies (as in, those with opposing views) even moreso.
You see, my Lord. buda was born an atheist, as in "one who does not believe but one who seeks and knocks and asks with all one's heart and soul and mind in order to know instead". buda did not just 'believe', as some atheist do, that there are no Gods, buda categorically knew that there are no Gods at all, and that Gods are the figment of the imagination, as in the crap some create inside their heads and bow down and worship. And then one day I met a certain LordReed, and ever since have I known that the Lord does indeed say to my Lord that inasmuch as I do unto the least of these whom I see before me, I have done also unto my imaginary God. You might be able to understand how liberating that was to my atheistic mind!
Wretched I was once lost, is my point, and now I have found my Lord. And since that could happen to me, I must find it in me to have compassion and the amazing grace to forgive those who have not yet found what I might have found. Or I'd be chopping off the limbs and plucking out the eyes of others while hypocritically not first plucking out my own offensive eyes nor cutting of my own offensive limbs first!
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see
Was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far
And Grace will lead us home
And Grace will lead us home
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see
Was blind, but now I see
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 7:27pm On Jun 07|
LordReed:It can be. Can be construed as such, especially if it becomes habit forming
LordReed:What matters is its integral part which can be empathy, compassion, virtuousness, selflessness etc
LordReed:Though irrelevant, I'll dignify you a response by replying that all manner of what the word of religion is now known as, that are liable to taxation under a sovereign country's constitution are already being taxed.
Can you justify me be taxed for having compassion on you and come to your aid, after you fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped you naked, beat and wounded you, and went away, leaving you half dead alongside the road? Would you think, its appropriate, I be levied for approaching you, treat your wounds, clean, dress and bandage up them up? Do you reckon, it should be OK to levy me a tax, for bringing you in my car to a hotel, to take more care of you?
Personally, I know that sort of religion shouldn't be financially taxed by the state, civil authority etc, it should be tax free.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 7:31pm On Jun 07|
LordReed:budaatum unconsciously, you're getting a sense of, the ideal for what pure and true religion that has no flaws nor faults is. The operative keywords are 'with no flaws nor faults' (i.e. religion you cant fault nor find any flaw in it)

|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 7:55pm On Jun 07|
"Unconsciously", you say, Bass. Is that because you can not possibly admit that buda can possibly be conscious of what buda is saying?
I guess you have not yet realised that is what happened to Eve in the Garden of Eden. She and Adam were unconsciously naked (as opposed to literally without clothes), until Eve consciously acquired Wisdom and their eyes opened to their unconsciousness and they became conscious.
Well, let me consciously commit the sin of arrogance so that when you become conscious of what buda is saying you will know how great buda's sin is.
You see, despite all your resistance, you will fail at ignoring that which the Holy Spirit will continue to bombard your mind with and then will you understand how great buda's sin is, and then will you fall on your knees and pray that buda does not burn in the hottest region of hell for buda's sin of being the conduit through which Jesus Christ the Lord of Wisdom and Understanding and the Messiah of humankind will eventually open your eyes. And when you do, we shall both say God is Great, and Amen.
In the meantime remember that blessed are those who keep the peace.

A 'religion' that is right and proper will give to the tax man what is tax and give to Lord what is God's.
Basically, it will spend what is tax on that which tax should be spent on, like feeding the poor and helping the vulnerable, so that the tax man will see what it does and even give it a refund or more to do that which it does. That, my Lord, is what will be done and is what is done.
You will be surprised to find out how much the Nigerian, and UK and US governments give to religious organisations just because they do feed and educate the poor.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 8:08pm On Jun 07|
You are a poly religionist so I fail to see why you need to make any distinction between true and false religion, you practice both.
Though irrelevant, I'll dignify you a response by replying that all manner of what the word of religion is now known as, that are liable to taxation under a sovereign country's constitution are already being taxed.
So the religion you decide is the correct one should be tax free? If religion is tax free does it mean it is correct or if it is taxed does it mean it wrong?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 8:11pm On Jun 07|

Let me state here so it is known, that everything about God and Christ is Consciousness, and those who are unconscious will not understand anything about either of them and will go about behaving like devils while thinking they walk with the Theo, or not as may be the case with the aTheoist.
And if, or when, you become Human Fishers (which you will become if you keep this up!), you will only be speaking to that which is capable of consciousness in others, whatever God or not you call on or worship or not.
God is building us into becoming powerful people regardless of our religions or beliefs or disbeliefs.

budaatum:The hunter turned into a wolf and devoured Red Riding Hood Eve
budaatum, just as in a way that shows a lack of experience, wisdom or good judgement, when and where you mistake religion and faith for each other, you now are doing a similar, in mistaking knowledge and wisdom for each other
You see budaatum, many people have knowledge, but they don’t have wisdom aka applied knowledge. Adam and Eve, by prematurely eating of the fruit from the Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil, brought upon themselves total annihilation. Its by the mercy, grace and love of God, that God had a get out of jail free pass or card to use for them to save themselves from their unclothedness and blushes. It is on the strength of the protoevangelium, that first promise after the fall from grace that Eve rejoiced at the birth of Seth as she found hope in the seed.
budaatum, knowledge without God and without wisdom is very dangerous. That’s one of the oldest problems in the world today. You have a lot of vain and 'straddling the fence' knowledge, you have accumulated a lot of perverted learning (i.e. knowledge without God and without wisdom), but the Bible, in 2 Timothy 3:7 sums you up, in saying about you that you're always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth'.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 8:44pm On Jun 07|
LordReed:Religion that God, our Father, accepts as pure, true, faultless and unblemished as is expressed in outward acts are all that has to do with having empathy, kindness, love and compassion on others
LordReed:Can you justify me be taxed for having compassion on you and come to your aid, after you fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped you naked, beat and wounded you, and went away, leaving you half dead alongside the road? Would you think, its appropriate, I be levied for approaching you, treat your wounds, clean, dress and bandage up them up? Do you reckon, it should be OK to levy me a tax, for bringing you in my car to a hotel, to take more care of you?
Personally, I know that pure, true, faultless and unblemished, as is expressed in benevolent outward acts like done towards you, in the posed questions above that you dodged giving your response to, shouldn't be financially taxed by the state, civil authority etc, it should be tax free.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by DavidAO(m): 8:51pm On Jun 07|
Yeah the true meaning of things change overtime. And this change is intentional by those who direct the word. It’s giving a reasons when there actually is. Today an atheist cannot recognize that he’s practicing a religion even thought he might be more devoted to the cause yet he ignorantly accuses a Christian of being religious.
A Scientist doesn’t also know that he’s also religious even though he takes high potent substances to realize certain things and devotes more time to his cause than a Christian does. Yet he ignorantly accuses a Christian of being religious.
Life itself is a religion, whether people see it or not is how far they deviate from reality. There’s one topic I created of the interconnectivity of all things and you can see that religion is a science and science is a religion. Religion is politics and politics is a religion etc. it’s just the new ones that attack themselves ignorantly that I feel for.
Thanks for your reasoning. I appreciate when I see those who look past meaning given them to realizing life
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 8:52pm On Jun 07|
You are funny, Bass! Just see here what God had me prepare while you were busy typing what you typed above.
Have you forgotten that the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is good for gaining Wisdom?
If so, how can the buda who is literally, and physically, and spiritually trying to poison you with it (as you seem to think), not possibly know the difference between knowledge and wisdom, or faith and religion?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by azraeljaheel: 9:18pm On Jun 07|
Your reasoning is crazy
Shallow minded individuals can never fathom your angle of seeing things
Hence my cry for help ... How can everyone see you as being comfy but deep down you feel like you are different
Can I pm you
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 9:23pm On Jun 07|
No you may not pm me. You may get instruction on how to contact me from my profile, but I prefer communicating on here if your contacting me is relevant to the topic here at least.
And please note that no human being is created with a shallow mind. Just some who might not want to use theirs
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by azraeljaheel: 9:32pm On Jun 07|
Then create a topic on how to push your level of reasoning ...
