Let us agree with the christian world that we firmly believe Matthew 15 as the word of god as they do!
Therefore, we believe Jesus Christ when he said: "22And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
Out of the mouth of Jesus Christ, we can all believe that anyone who is not of the house of Israel is a dog, and shall NOT partake of the bread belonging to the children of Israel. VERY CLEAR. ALL CHRISTIANS ARE DOGS DESERVING NOTHING FROM JESUS CHRIST. HE IS NOT SENT FOR US AS HE HIMSELF DECLARES.
We all benefit from a supportive community for friends, charity, and fostering a better understanding of secular values with our neighbors. Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, skeptics, non-religious, lost tourists, and the generally confused are all welcome to join us!
It is often claimed that atheists are rare when in fact nearly 20% of our nation's population do not believe in a higher power. Still, atheists can feel isolated because the religious community is so organized and outspoken on issues. Building and participating in a community is the first step toward being heard.
Plus - the conversation is great!
