God is an excuse...

God is an excuse to be justified in denying your humanity as to feel some form of supremacy.

God is an excuse to profit on the nation's only tax free business.

God in an excuse not to think.

God is an excuse to feel free.

 and moreover,

God is inexcusable.

Is human nature a good thing?

God is an excuse to profit on the nation's only tax free business.

I'm not sure I understand this point... there are many tax free businesses.

God in an excuse not to think.

Thinking is not inherently good. Hitler thought many things... such as to kill Jews and minorities and gypsies.... Yet, the Bible tells Christians to think and to reason....

God is an excuse to feel free.

I agree.

and moreover,

God is inexcusable.

How so?

Our nature is nothing to be ashamed about. Were all human. Get over it. Don't systematically repress it, that's not healthy at all.

Did you really say thinking isn't good? Wow you are so blinded by faith it's scary. Like children of the corn..but I shouldnt even have to explain why this is rediculous. Crazy nutjobs think about genocide, normal and intelligent people think about science, art, ect.

That might be the most absurd thing ive ever heard. I have NEVER heard of any bible verse or church dogma that comands thinking rationally. If you did that, you wouldn't be as ignorant as you are. Find that verse, I'd love to hear it.

Is human nature a good thing?

It isn't in question if it is good or bad, and in fact I daresay there isn't one thing that doesn't come with one the other. Yet nevertheless, you and I are human. We fart, fuck, cry, mourn, and cause a lot of pain, and mostly unintentionally or inevitably. Pretending that this can be avoided, or IS to be avoided, is silly; and to further push this burden of guilt for it is ignorant. Why should I feel guilty? I apologize when I mean it and I don't when I don't. I don't owe some imaginary all powerful being my penance, especially if that deity is the one that A) enabled me, B) did not prevent me, and C) knew I would do it.

None of which I can name. provided you do, I'll revoke the comment and revise it.

Again you take the absolutism approach and pigeon-hole this as a good versus bad scenario. Thinking yields ideas, creation, advancement, and problem solving. Crazy megalomaniacs produce genocides. Do you see the difference? It isn't the action of thinking that makes one justify, say, the wholesale slaughter of non-Arian society, but rather ones own mind.

I agree.

Yet to whom are we supposedly most indebted? And whom supposedly casts us in hell fire or whatnot if we don't live a life dedicated, and a life so forfeit of will?

-

How so?

Even the bible claims we are accountable for our own actions after age 12. Let's all at least function at a 13 year old level and point the finger at ourselves.
