    Faith Is A Simple Test: To Find Out If You Are Teachable?

    If it turns out that you are not teachable, then obviously you
    know more than God knows and there will be no place for you
    in God's Heaven. Heaven can only have one Supreme Being.
    A Supreme Being that will never consent to become a student
    to be taught wisdom and truths by one of His creatures.

    Jesus said, "Have faith in God." {Mark 11:22}
    And you say? :
    (1) I will.
    or
    {2) I will not.

    I have faith in man. In gods, devils, demons, angels, Easter Bunnies, and honest politicians, not so much.

    Man is the only animal intelligent enough to create gods and frightened enough to need to.

    Because he's the only one that can. For millennium, man killed up close. Clubs, spears, knives and rocks one ruled the battle.

    Faith in man? Surely you jest! Man is the one creature I'd never put faith in.
    My Word.
    Man is the only animal intelligent enough to create gods and frightened enough to need to.
    Man is a smart animal, but mankind is dumber than dirt.
    Well, the Bible tells us that man is the last place you want to invest your faith. Guess you didn't get the memo.
    So sad.

    I have no faith in Mankind. If Mankind was truly intelligent Mankind would not create gods nor be frighten enough to need gods. No Mankind is smart but not very intelligent.

    Aren't you ready to go ahead and lock-down in unbelief?
    One of your brothers in unbelief, wrote a book titled Farewell to God: My Reasons For Rejecting The Christian Faith
    Farewell to God: My Reasons for Rejecting the Christian Faith: Templeton, Charles: 9780771085086: Amazon.com: Books
    Based on your posting history (that I have read) you would DEARLY LOVE his book. Ya'll are bothers.
    Aren't you about ready to forever tell God goodbye?
    And just go ahead and resign yourself to whatever you think might be waiting for you out there?
