So do you think you need faith, ghoti?
Do you think everyone needs it (faith) in order to get that drive to be a better person?
Eveeryone has faith in something. Since we all have different life experiences we just see the world differently. I'm just asking whether your faith or ethical philosophy inspires you to take actions in your life.
IMO the passage from Matthew 25 is clearly a mandate from Jesus to his followers that they are required to help those in need. How else can you interpret it?
That is not what I asked you.
I'd like an answer.
But, to go on with my own thoughts, you use 'faith' in a manner of which it is meant to be the driving force in what makes people do good things. Insulting to an atheist or not?
Since you are not an atheist, then if others could answer that, please do.
Ghoti, I am very tired of your never answering directly. One has to come at you over and again with what they want answered. You never do.
You also say in your latest posting that you are just 'asking': does your faith or ethical philosophy inspire you to take actions in your life? yet, the beginning of this thread is not a questioning of others. It is you saying that 'faith' is suppose to inspire (my word is, drive) one to do good deeds to better their lives.
I don't need ronnie to tell us what he does in his life. Do you? I tell ya, the reason I called you and merry an ass is because you, as well as starlightangel have asked and asked him to say. Who cares? What will it prove, anything? And, maybe he doesn't feel comfortable answering, for one reason or another. Is it your call to see that he does?
The only thing this thread does, is say that since you do things which are good for others you exemplify the better person than, say, someone who doesn't post everything they do in life for the benefit of others. And I think I'm smart enough to know how these threads have gone in the past....it's damned if you do and damned if you don't: if ronnie answered you here, it's possible that it would come back to bite him by someone down the road. If he does not answer you, then all the posters with a bug up their butt about him will unanimously agree and post that he is some kind of troll...only here for himself.
You know what you all can do with that kind of attitude. Go ... ... ...yeah, that's right. I've been called a troll by shakey over and again in the past...that shit does not fly. it is extremely weak response to someone with a voice who simply ...for what they believe or think...has Gotton under your skin. Screw that, because we all are alike in that regard.
YOuse do the same things over and over again. Wabi,....you had to know what he did for a living. we all know how it went after that. for allll these years. he's gone now. and you can run the likes of anyone else Off this board with you guys' damned tactics....but just know that THAT is what makes for piss poor participation here.
