“I love Jesus but not religion”

That’s a real shame because you know who was really religious? A guy named Jesus.

Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops - ABC News
Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.

May I Split My Giving Between My Church and Another Ministry? | Desiring God
I hope it is clear when I say that tithing is not a “have to,” not a New Testament rule. I am saying something like this: Suppose a football coach does not say to his high school team, “Everybody must get up at 5:00 every morning and run three miles so as to be fit for the maximum effectiveness of this team.” But instead the coach says, “I want you to love this sport with all your heart and I want you to give it all you have got this season. I want you to pursue maximum excellence and serve this team to make it as great as it can be.”

Now which of those two ways of talking to the team sets the higher standard? The second way doesn’t have any rules attached to it. The first one does. Up at five every day. Three miles. It sounds pretty rigorous. But I think the second word from the coach is the higher standard. He touches the heart of the team members. And if any of them uses the absence of rules to justify half-hearted allegiance to the team, he is simply not following the heart of his coach. And so it is with giving in the church.

10 Reminders for Preachers - The Master's Seminary
Charles Spurgeon: Ah, my dear friends, we want nothing in these times for revival in the world but the simple preaching of the gospel. This is the great battering ram that shall dash down the bulwarks of iniquity. This is the great light that shall scatter the darkness. We need not that men should be adopting new schemes and new plans. We are glad of the agencies and assistances which are continually arising; but after all, the true Jerusalem blade, the sword that can cut to the piercing asunder of the joints and marrow, is preaching the Word of God. We must never neglect it, never despise it. The age in which the pulpit it despised, will be an age in which gospel truth will cease to be honored. . . . God forbid that we should begin to depreciate preaching. Let us still honor it; let us look to it as God’s ordained instrumentality, and we shall yet see in the world a repetition of great wonders wrought by the preaching in the name of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Everett Piper: A Man Among Boys | The American Conservative
Oklahoma Wesleyan is not a “safe place”, but rather, a place to learn: to learn that life isn’t about you, but about others; that the bad feeling you have while listening to a sermon is called guilt; that the way to address it is to repent of everything that’s wrong with you rather than blame others for everything that’s wrong with them. This is a place where you will quickly learn that you need to grow up!

This is not a day care. This is a university!

Multiculturalism is not working. This isn't condemning an entire race or religion, but if there is a disproportionate amount of these negative events from one group, the continent must do some soul searching.

It's not multiculturalism as whole that's not working, it's a specific culture that refuses to integrate.

I wouldn't call it a culture. It's more of an ideology, and even then...
The ideology is Wahhabism (also known as Salafism), which is a sub sect of the Sunni branch of Islam. So it's subsection of a subsection of a religion

How School Shootings Spread - The New Yorker
The second problem was more complicated. The prosecution saw someone who wanted to be Eric Harris and plainly assumed that meant he must be like Eric Harris, that there must be a dark heart below LaDue’s benign exterior. But the lesson of the Granovetterian progression, of course, is that this isn’t necessarily true: the longer a riot goes on, the less the people who join it resemble the people who started it.

As pointed out previously, the evidence is very real and compelling:

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

The problem, however, does not lie with the evidence, the problem lies with those 'reviewing' the evidence. The fault is with you and your inabilities to perceive things in the spiritual realm. Spiritually, you are blind. You are deaf. You are dumb.

In fact, spiritually, you are dead.

Yet you want us to prove to you God. Or show you God.

First, go to your local cemetery and try to prove something to the people under the tombstones. The point you wish to make to them does not even have to be that complicated. Take a basic math problem (5 + 5) and tell the dead all about it. See if they hear your solution. Or 'see' what you are saying about the answer.

You're not going to bother are you? Why waste the time. Because you understand that the physically dead are dead. And they cannot hear, or see, or perceive, etc.

That's exactly your situation spiritually. You are dead. God told Adam in the day he would eat of the tree he would die. And yet, Adam lived (physically) for over 900 years AFTER eating from the tree. Why didn't he die that day he ate of the tree?

The answer is, of course, that he did die that very day. He died in his spirit. From that point on he would possess physical life but in spirit he would be a corpse.

The fact is that it YOUR dead soul that causes you to say there is no God. And YOUR dead soul that prevents you from seeing things in the spiritual realm with a mind of understanding.
