    Check out this link "Earthquakes and the Bible":

    http://www.ldolphin.org/quakes.html

    Although the earthquake was of huge magnitude in Haiti and has a huge loss of life here on earth, there have been many earthquakes in the past of similar magnitude with an equal loss of life.

    Such tragedies should teach all of us that our time here on earth is temporary and really short. But through faith in our Savior Jesus Christ, we have an eternal city, not built by human hands, which will endure for all eternity. We should never put our hope in this age because it is temporary, but rather in the age to come, which is eternal.

    Many in Haiti have now entered that age and rest, which is eternal, in which they are no longer lacking medical care, food, shelter, and water, but are now feasting at the river of life. On this side of eternity, we only see destruction, pain, trouble, and heartache here, but they now rest from all of this. The blessed ones are those who died and now are living in eternal peace with their Savior and Lord.

    But those who remain, perhaps in huge physical pain from serious injurires and broken bones to their bodies and from hunger and thirst and emotionally from the greiving of loss of loved ones, are in great need of God's comfort that he is still with them and will help them get through this through loving people who will help them. We and others like us WILL HELP THEM BECAUSE GOD IS CALLING ALL HUMANITY TO HELP THEM in whatever ways we can with their phsycial needs because we care about their physical needs and those of us who are Christians will also help them with their spriritul needs because Jesus also has promised to them that he is preparing a place for them at the river of life alongside those believers who died in this quake.

    I HAVE EVERY CONFIDENCE THAT GOD IS EVER WITH THEM AND THROUGH THE COMFORT OF HIS WORD AND THROUGH US AND OTHER LOVING AND CARING PEOPLE AND CHRISTIANS WILL HELP THEM, UNTIL WE ALL ARE CALLED OUT OF THIS WORLD. GOD INVITES ALL HUMANITY TO COME AND FEAST AT THE RIVER OF LIFE THROUGH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    Please, stop preaching. If people want religion, they will ask for it. We don't need this extra shit on here.

    Here's how religion ultimately treats you:

    Now go and do something productive like donating to Red Cross or something instead of capitalizing on a massive disaster to further your agenda.

    I have no agenda here other than love. My donations are already in action. Jesus calls all the time. He's calling all humanity to help them. Will you answer his call and help them, too?

    No I wondn't - I answers to myself, I choose to give donation, although I can't give that much right now because I'm out of a job, but I do it out of my own will, not some hocus pocus imaginary friend.

    I find doing good deeds to follow religious call fake and selfish.

    Why is jesus so helpless? Why can't he help those people? Why's he making them suffer so much? Why does jesus hate mankind?

    I must say, i am kind of shocked at how some of the guys react to this post. Seems very disrespectful and uneccesary. In all honesty it would kind of be expected that guys would have erspect fo each other on this site and at least give each other the freedom to express what they want on the site. If you dont want to read it, then just dont.

    Please be respectful.

    If you're gonna post it, expect replies, expect disagreement. Frankly, this isn't a christian site and all the christian preaching bullshit is offensive. Fuck christianity. I can say that here because it's the spirituality forum.

    I don't know why anyone bothers posting in G_Farce's threads, anyway. There's a good chance he'll delete the thread, should someone say something he does not agree with (I believe it has something to do with G_Farce's own God complex). Stop posting in this thread, and let it fade away into oblivion where it belongs.

    When people capitalize on disaster to further their religion, I find it offensive and disgusting. Exploiting people's time of need to dupe them into following your system of mythology is repulsive. People need help with their physical well-being--not some made of "spiritual" well-being, fabricated to get them to follow some bullshit belief system. Close your bible (i.e., mythology chronicle), open your mind, and stop believing in fairytales. You'll do yourself and the whole world a favor.

    whichever means - secular or religious - a person chooses is only a means to an end, and this end is whether or not you can find it in you to help the earthquake victims.

    what matters is the intention of the heart.

    What I find more shocking is the suggestion that an invisible entity named "god" manufactured a disaster which killed tens of thousands of innocent people in order to make people believe in it and to give surviving human beings something nice to do.

    Of course, anyone who has a rudimentary understanding of geology and plate tectonics would know that this simply wouldn't be true. It's a natural disaster, and instead of spending time blithering on about a non-existant entity, perhaps people should do something useful, like donating or flying to Haiti to help out.

    Give PEOPLE their due. They're helping because they're moved by compassion, which seems to be something the invisible entity is bereft of, and to suggest that Zombie Jesus is calling people to help is to denigrate the efforts of those mobilizing to help those victims of a disaster Zombie Jesus didn't feel compelled to prevent. Well, which makes sense, since he isn't real.

    Willful ignorance and stupidity should never go unaddressed. When it doesn't, that's when things like the Inquisition and suicide bombers wander on to the scene.

    Amen to that!

    As a Quaker I believe we don't need an external "saviour" to "save" us. Actualy the word used in the Bible we translate as "save" doesnt mean that...it means "made whole".

    We have the power within us to make ourselves whole not just as individuals but as a people. God or Goodness, however you want to term the interconnectedness of all things, is within us all. We have the capacity to be loving. To be moved to love.

    What type of insecure "God" "demands" worship? What type of "God" is "jealous God" who demands we only worship them? What type of "God" creates a natural disaster to show "love". The one we make for ourselves. The one we push all our hopes, fears and insecurities on. An institutionalised one.

    Take time out. Focus on the "still small voice of calm" that is inside. However you want to describe it. Meditate. Focus. Chill out. Relax. Centre yourself. Go for for a walk in the country. The "wow" factor of being in love, the "wow" of seeing something stunning beautiful, either in nature or a work of art, that is God/Goodness/the Divine.

    Even if you don't believe in "God", or believe in God in a traditional sense, being centred, being whole, knowing and loving and accepting yourself is still important.

    And just yesterday morning I wondered to myself what outrageous nonsense Pat Roberts was going to spew from this disaster.

    F' Pat Robertson. F' him right in the ear.

    I might be going to hell for my actions of love with another man, Mr. Robertson, but I'll see you there for your actions/words of hate toward other men.
