  Undivided – An Open Letter to Vicky Beeching (Vicky Beeching is a relatively well-known Christian singer songwriter who is now better known for being gay and an advocate of the LGBT agenda within the church. When she came out as gay she knew that her career on the American Christian music scene was over, but she now has a new career as a darling of the . Thus a religion of heavenly love, built upon the redeeming life and doctrine of a Son of God, dying to save the whole world in division, bitterness, envy, pride, strife, hatred and persecution; every outrage of war and bloodshed, breaths and breaks forth with more strength in learned Christendom than ever they did from a religion of pagan.   The consensus of scholars, including non-Christian scholars, is that a historical Jesus most likely existed and the later stories about “Jesus Christ” were told about him. The idea that there was no such historical person at all and that “Jesus Christ” was a purely mythical figure has been posited in one form or another since the eighteenth century, but is not taken . Upon this occasion the Jews, under the conduct of Barchochab, rose up in arms against the Romans, and in the war had fifty cities demolished, nine hundred and eighty-five of their best towns destroyed, and five hundred and eighty thousand men slain by the sword; and in the end of the war, B.

Religion is a voluntary Thing; it can no more be forced than Reason, or Memory, or any Faculty of the Soul. To be devout against our Will, is an Absurdity; and it is ridiculous in others to hope to make us so, in spite of ourselves.

The most compelling evidence of the paganization of the Christian church is the seven letters to the seven churches found in the Book of Revelation. These seven letters effectively debunk almost all of the Christian doctrines. John Adams view of the Christian religion as a factor in political education appears in one of the last entries in his diary: “One great advantage of the Christian religion is, that it brings the great principle of the law of nature and nations—Love your neighbor as yourself, and do to others as you would that others should do to you—to.

A few years since, the Editor of the following pages published a volume of Religious Creeds and Statistics; and, as the work, although quite limited, met with general approbation, he has been induced to publish another of the same nature, but on a much larger plan, trusting that it will prove more useful, and more worthy of public favor.

The Christian religion builds people to be better with its higher goals. Ways of life that accent dog-eat-dog or social position are aimed at a target that has nothing to give other than more of the same. Selfishness isn't a realistic goal, nor does it make for a desirable social reality.

In other words, religion is compatible with modern evolutionary biology (and indeed all of modern science) if the religion is effectively indistinguishable from atheism. The frequently made assertion that modern biology and the assumptions of the Judaeo.

Religion is one lie after another: the lie of original sin, the lie of eternal life, the lie of hell, the lie of answered prayer, the lie that life can have no meaning without religion, the lie that religion is the source of morality, the lie of creationism, the lie of a spy-in-the-sky who hears your every word and reads your every thought.

Whereas religion is limited, temporary and repetitive, the life of Jesus is eternal and forever. As a “priest forever” (), Jesus is “eternal salvation” () within the “eternal covenant” (). Jesus is better than all religion because He is the provision and sufficiency for practical experiential behavior that glorifies God.

The mind of the sincerely pious Christian, inspired by the promises, invigorated by the principles, and supported by the prospects of the gospel, rises superior to every affliction.
