Re: jesus and the easter bunny wait santa too!!!!!
EVERYONE has faith. You have faith that this world is real and that your senses are correctly representing reality. If you disagree, then prove to me that you are real... Prove that the world has always existed and that matter is eternal. You have faith in these things (if not then an intellectual infinite being must exist).
You told us to choose for yourself, yet you are telling us which road we are to choose. Aren't you doing exactly what the "church" is doing? TELLING us what to do! I am 5 hours away from a trip to help build houses in Charleston. I don't tithe--I give where I feel led. I work where I feel compelled. You have stereotyped Christians. Stop. I am not telling you what to believe, but asking that you be human and kind about your beliefs. Be rational- not belligerent.
