I am sincerely open to conversion.
I would love for someone to give me a persuasive argument for organized faith, but none seem to go beyond:

>"Well it might be right."
>"If you just withhold disbelief/criticism for long enough, you'll get used to assuming its validity and it will structure and orient your outlook."

I've tried prayer, but I don't see how a secular re-examination of personal morality is any worse.
I've tried studying religious grounding, but none of the traditional religious arguments are persuasive post-Kant or Spinoza.

Is there any other avenue that is persuasive, or shall I do like Hume and: 'Commit it then to the flames: for it can contain nothing but sophistry and illusion.”

You have to rationalize yourself into believing. If you're sort of smart, you'll manage it. If you are smart, you'll need longer, but you can construct a more elaborate reasoning for yourself. If you're really smart, you can just about do it if you squint and talk about god as if it's a force of nature, not a person.

No such thing. Every consistent atheist realizes this, they just don't want to change. Usually it is because they are too hedonistic and rebel against "Christian morality" (which just boils down to rebelling against restrictions on mindless sodomistic cooming).

Yhvh means "he who is". Yhv is the trinity, the last h is man. The h is symbolic for the Son of God who is fully God and fully man.

Thanks for your reply. However, divine command theory comes last in a list of secular moral frameworks including: moral relativism, consequentialism, ethical egoism, Kant's moral theory, moral pluralism, virtue ethics, and moral particularism.
I don't say this out of stubbornness or bias, it's just that DCT is riddled with more philosophical problems and contradictions than the list I gave above. I guess this is why Aquinas' Natural Law is touted by Christian's all the time, but even this framework contains problems which would give reason to reject the principle of double effect and moral absolutism. This is a hill where I need help traversing.

If I'm not mistaken, I take you're a substance dualist. If this is the case, how would you respond to something like Spinoza's substance monism, which would imply a denial of personal immortality but retain God/Nature's perfection?

I'm trying.

I'm not even atheist and I certainly don't rebel against God, that's literally impossible, we live inside the mind of God.
What you worship as God is in fact a lesser deity, a destructive demon that spawned from the deserts of Judea.

Advaita vedanta is a good start.
Everything can be confirmed in practice and eventual direct experience of nonduality and self realization

I deny bugmen terms used by atheists to discuss Christianity and theology. Atheists essentially cannot arrive at a full picture of reality and morality because they are blind, in a state of rebellion against the Holy Spirit, who grants through repentance the wisdom and the eyes with which to see the order in the world established by Christ. Just try it and you'll see for yourself.

Refuted by Christ's personal, historical and bodily resurrection.

I doubt debating people larping as christian to be "edgy" is going to get you many good arguments for Christianity. But to throw an argument for organized religion your way. It seems like every successful civilization (or tribe for that matter) has had some sort of organized religion. Seems like a strong indicator that organized religions are a prerequisite for a long term functional civilization.

Actually, I have been leaning towards monism. However, if this doesn’t assert the existence of a personal god, nor a personal eternal soul, and it emphasizes personal insight and direct experiential realizations - why should I change my current position at all? From what my ethnic Hindu and Buddhist friends tell me, a level of faith is required for enlightenment (the secularized version is just a commodity).

>Atheists essentially cannot arrive at a full picture of reality and morality because they are blind
Okay, taking you seriously - I have a question which you may be able to answer. Given that Christ is divine creator (omnipotent), divine in rationality (omniscient), and divine in moral perfection (omnibenevolence) - does Christ command that we perform actions because they are obligatory, or are some actions obligatory because he commands them?

>> No.15204776

He's talking about religion as a tool to organize society by rules and tradition. Since that only requires peoples belief, it doesn't matter if the religion the people believe in is true.

Quick question. What does happen to the humans that died before they could hear of Jesus Christ? Like those born in Alexanders times or in South America before the Spanish came.

>> No.15204794

>actions because they are obligatory, or are some actions obligatory because he commands them
False dialectics. I can promise you that you will never arrive at the truth by trying to pin Christ down into a neat bugmanistic reddit gold box. The pharisees tried it with their constant dialectical testing of Christ and look where it got them.

As a spiritual practice meditation is in all major religions. He will be persuaded if you are a virgin donkey that no one has rode on before.
>23But Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Truly, truly, I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a seed; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25Whoever loves his soul will lose it, but whoever hates his soul in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, My servant will be as well. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
If we die to ourselves God will be raised from the dead. Let your soul be crucified with him and you'll be raised from the dead with him. as much as you truly partake of goodness and Truth are you manifesting the proof of yourself to God. if God Made You from himself then if you empty yourself you should find what was originally there. all the top religious people always speak about negating yourself to find God.

In theologico evolutionary matters, at what time in history does God separate monkey from man?
Do all ancestral monkeys go to ancestral monkey hell?
Or are they forever in ancestral monkey limbo?

If they've no souls, at what point in history did our ancestor monkeys get souls? Was it gradual or all at once?
If it was gradual, do they spend a small amount of time in ancestral monkey hell/limbo?
Or are they in ancestral monkey hell/limo forever?

God Works in eternity, in spirit and in truth. Working in time is because people are sleeping very deeply. So the historical processes are merely a symbolic representation of divine processes. Only materialistic and authoritarian thinking has people believe the most foolish of things such as that some people won't be saved because of time periods which would make God unjust.
