Religion Is The Root Of Evil

Has anyone seen Richard Dawkins? He is a militant atheist scientist at Oxford University. He says plausibly that religion is the root of all evil.

Moderator - He is probably close. That is why we need Christianity instead of religion.

A lie requires both a false statement and the intent to deceive. By "incoherent nonsense", are you referring to that you despise wisdom and instruction, hate knowledge, profess yourself to be wise, but became a fool, are a natural man, your knowledge puffeth up, resist the truth, are unlearned and unstable, are a hypocrite, and a false prophet. Since you insist on using a prophetic form (as if you were speaking under a divine inflatus), and don't speak the word of the Lord, you are a false prophet*. The blog "Your Favorite Bible Verses", Shawn_M.T. on 4/24/09. "That's 'Hilarious."
*Deuteronomy 13:1-3, 18:20-22, Jeremiah 14:4, 23:31-32, 37, Ezekiel 13:2-7, Micah 3:5, 2Peter 1:20-21.

This statement by Don Koennig,
"Religion is basically satanic.
All religion contains methods, rituals and practices for man to become righteous enough to ascend or evolve to God. All religion thus believes in the need for one to become self righteous. True Christianity is the complete opposite. True Christianity believes in God's righteousness. Because of His righteousness, Jesus the creator, died for our sins and breached the gap between God and man. True Christianity believes God provides a free gift of eternal life to anyone who trusts in Him (has faith) that God is graceful and sent His Son to save those who believe in His righteousness. Is very descriptive! Clearly drawn the line between religion and Christianity!!!!

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Glenn, That's 'Hilarious'!!! The deception of your first 'Lie' was when you posted underneath another name, after questioning me about having & using a second name(sound like you were asking me out of a Guilty Conscious).

...and Your Malicious intent, once again is your fruitless and futile point of trying to piece together this incoherent nonsense just to slander a fellow Brother in the Lord, all of which to make yourself feel justified in your 'Personal' problem with me stating To Whosoever Has...

Brother, I Pray & Hope that you'll learn that discussion in the Name of the Lord, are done for Christ sake, and not for your own malicious intents derived from your guilty conscious.
---Shawn_M.T. on 4/24/09

G: The blog of 4/23 should have said Glenn, rather than G. There was no malintent, but I apologize to you.

Shawn_M.T.: To be slanderous, it would have to either be a lie, or to be done with malicious intent. Though, I did make a judgment. Your illustration (4/21) concerning 'insanity' was expanded to include [or attempting to correct you].
Based on the the following blog replies, you are also a hypocrite. (4/23) "Has God Predestined Us": Anne, "Religion Is The Root Of Evil": DDM, and (4/22) "Does Science Lack Faith": To Whosoever..., "Once Saved Always Saved" & "Can God's Seal Be Broken": Anne, "Bad Fruit Is Not A Christian": Debbie.

Dawkins fits the biblical definition of a fool.
Starting with Lucifer its rebellion that is the root of all evil.
Silly goose.
Actually its more serious than that noting that if Dawkins does not come to salvation he will find that he was made in God's image and is a spiritual being that will live hell.

Unfortunately, non-believers include the body of Christ in with all other religious groups. We have heard that religion was the reason Christ was crucified. We know the media has a field day every time a church representative is caught committing a sin and/or crime. We know a lot of people don't attend church because they observe so called Christians living sinful lifestyles. Most important the enemy is out there trying his best to delay his down fall. Selective groups are trying to completely remove God's laws and words from all government documents. They took prayer out of our schools and our family morals and values have deteriorated. The body of Christ is Christianity not religion.

I'm not sure what the blog etiquette is concerning going off topic, but will assume it is usually correct to answer comments addressed to oneself.
Your query of 4/21 has its' logic since you: "despise wisdom and instruction" / Proverbs 1:7, "hated knowledge" / Proverbs 1:21-(29)-33, fit "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" / Romans 1:21-22, are a "natural man" / 1Corinthians 2:1-(14)-16, (your) "knowledge puffeth up" / 1Corinthians 8:1-2, "resist the truth" / 2Timothy 3:7-8, are "unlearned and unstable" / 2Peter 3:16.

To gain the Wisdom of why President Obama DOESN'T support abortion but isn't up rooting it either, Read Matt.13:24:30.

Are you KIDDING me?

While believing that it was implied, please insert "the love of" in the seventh sentence previously written (Glenn on 4/18/09). Job 20:15, 1Timothy 6:5-10 and Titus 1:11 concern avarice, especially to those who would use ministry for their own aim, and not God's purpose(s). Verse 11 addresses 1-10. Yes, the love of money is the root of covetousness. Other roots are Deuteronomy 29:18, Isaiah 5:24, Matthew 3:10 / Luke 3:9, Hebrew 12:15.

p.s. I was referring to your sharing with Miche3754 a too similar style of writing, a theological quirk, and in your mutual approbation.

Does any one here have a relationship with the Spirit and can comprehend the Light of God's Word and realize that It's the "LOVE" of money that's the root of all evil.



IRONIC, an atheist(a militant atheist at that) spending much of his time cursing something which for him doesn't exit....LOL....making him not to good of an atheist.

---Shawn_M.T. on 4/20/09

And Dawkins is wrong on this point of religion being the cause. Money is the root and religion is used by evil men and women to mask the root. We listen to leaders say, "I'm a Christian", and yet they fly their military half-way across the globe to kill the non-Christians. The motive is always money at the root. Money is the root of all evil. You find a war, trace the root. The economy is collapsing: what happened to the money?
---sam7489 on 4/19/09

To me, it seems that Richard Dawkins is another closed minded fool who spends much of his time cursing at a God that he says doesn't exist. Matthew 6:22-23, 12:34-35, Mark 7:21-23 say evil comes from within the heart. Romans 1:18-32 shows that God is wrathful against those "who hold the truth in unrighteousness." Galatians 5:19-21 concerns the work of the flesh. James 1:13 says God does not tempt evil. When reading 1Timothy 6:10 think of all types of evil, rather than all. There is/are some evil that doesn't have money as a root.


p.s. Shawn_M.T. Stop saying "To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear", since you are neither Jesus, nor prophesying in his name. Does the _M. stand for Misch3754.

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

MONEY ISN'T THE ROOT OF EVIL!! It's the "LOVE" of money that's the root of all evil :1Timothy 6:10.

The evil things in this world aren't Perfect, as the Truth of the Word but the fact that nothing else, like religions, are perfect either, isn't what makes them evil.

When we let ourselves covet any religion as being as Perfect as the Truth of the Word and faithfully listen & do everything that that religion dictates for us to do, instead of endeavoring to listen to & grow a relationship with the Holy Spirit, is when that religion has become piercingly & sorrowfully evil to our spiritual walk.

Non-evil thing can become evil unto us, when we covet them over the Truth!!!!!

One of the individuals that posted before me claimed that the greatest atrocities in the last century were the result of atheism. This is not true, all of the groups were only atheist in that they did not believe in god. They did not hold up the atheist values such as actually thinking before acting, All the groups cited were communist or socialist and dropped rationalism for social extremism. They dropped their former religions and grabbed a hold of a new one.And as for the most atrocious event in the last century look towards the Holocaust. Everyone falsely accuses Hitler of being Atheist but he held the tenets of several religions. Christianity, Norse Mythology, and also worshiped his mother as a diety.

I dont agree with him...Judging others is the root of all evil..insulting others is the root of all evil, to speak insultingly of others whom are dead is the root of all evil...everything that is against God's way is the root of all evil..there is nothing wrong with religion, its how people use it..

That was when it broke down. getting back to the Gospel could stop alot of the "evil" present today.

Mr. Leon; Atheism is not the worship of the 'creation' Worship of the creation is animism, or pantheism. Atheism is a lack of belief in anything, any divinity, I suggest checking the dictionary.

No Leon ... they say they are not all-knowing ... that's their whole point that they are constantly learning and seeking after more facts for more knowledge. They say that those who know all (which is what he says about Christians and other religions) are the dangerous people.
To them what they say is not absurd, and there would be no point in pointing out scripture to them, because they do not accept the authority of that scripture.

The second worst religion is the athestic religion. The claim of people like Dr. Knowlittle (Dawkins), at Oxford, that there is no God is absurdly foolish (Ps. 14:1 & 53:1) . For their statement to have any validity they'd have to be "all knowing" (omniscient) & if they did know everything, they'd be god. Actually, that's really what they postulate themselve to be -- god.

Anon ... Thank you for seeing my point that the way we say the truth we have can actually pass the advantage to our opponent.
Rudy ... I have seen no-one here who would agree with Mr Dawkins.

Sorry Lupe you do not answer, for it again shows you have no answer. You presumably agree that it was right for that southern preacher to spout hate-filled words at Dawkins, thus helping Dawkins cause.

Close indeed Moderator. Religion at its worst: "THE LOVE OF MONEY is the 'root of all evil'." (1 Tim 6:3-10)

Alan, thank you for your comments. I will not respond for it will serve no purpose for God in me answering you.
