    Agreed, they're already on the path to salvation.

    Salvation= God's free gift of eternal life and forgiveness for sin which I may have by believing that the Lord Jesus died for me and rose again. When I believe in Christ, I am saved from the penalty of sin. As I grow in the Lord, He continues to free me gradually from the power of sin. Someday I will be saved from the presence of sin.

    Any questions?

    If you knew anything about me and what I ride, you wouldn't have posted this non-sense. I see you frequent this place, 3 posts since 2011, you're informed.

    Salvation as defined by you Wayne, and the conceptual framework your world is structured around. Sin is another cultural construct which can be relative to the individual. And while we're on the subject, the concept of original sin is the biggest crock of sh*t IMO. Something I always grappled with(I was raised Catholic, my mom just wanted me to get confirmed and then left the choice up to me), but how you you tell people that they're born guilty and without baptism will be damned for eternity. Christianity as a whole appeals to the dispossesed and oppressed, but I mean come on, it's such a transparent selling point. Join us and get baptized or you're going to hell. And for the record, I mean no disrespect to anybody's personal beliefs, I just find theological discussion interesting. Sh*t, I even talk to the Jehovas in my neighborhood.

    Someone is a little self rightous. Why go to church when I can go to this forum?

    Let's see, you're calling me....liberal a**hat....a**holes...d***weed....you may be headed for the rarified infarction status, watercress. What are you, 12?

    Make your way over to the hater thread as started by another self-righteous bible-thumper, Little Lord Fauntleroy himself, aka clemmy, and there you can go bonkers all you wish.

    I'm not liberal.
    Where am I being negative?

    Having the freedom from religious worship/belief is positive thing. How much time, energy and money is wasted trying to support the religious institutions of the world? Couldn't we put those resources to better use instead of trying to buy our way into "eternal salvation"?

    The sad fact is we are organic lifeforms who die and decompose like anything else.
    When you come to terms with that, every second seems more precious then the last.

    "The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides."

    Sure we're organic life forms that die and decompose, but that says nothing about what may or may not happen after. The more we learn about the planet and universe, the more complex we realize it is. Putting the Sagans and Dawkins types aside, I'm sure there are plenty of scientists aren't as quick to say when you're dead it's over and that's eat. Eat some psilocybin dude.

    Yea, 'shrooms are cool. Definitely helps you wrap your mind around abstract ideas. Here are a few:

    Try accepting "nothingness" as a possibility. I feel as humans we always presume there is "something" that had to come before, or "something" that happens after. Could it be possible that the universe is just infinitely old? Isn't it likely the universe is infinitely old?

    Anyway, surfing should be exempt from religion. And nobody should be trying to get more people into surfing. Could we user religion to lure more people out of the water? That would be great!
