So, not on this forum.  You get all the compliments because you claim a lot of things they want to hear on the religious forum that people here don't necessarily believe or have experience as being true.

WHOA BABY! You should see the negative feedback I get from atheists and jesus-rejecters calling me every name under the sun, but I can't post it here because it's full of their cusswords..Also, UM has a policy of "respecting other religions" so I have to let them off the hook, otherwise I'd blow them and their crock beliefs out of the water..:D

Where did you get your user name Tuco's Gas?

It pertains to a character of that name in a popular American TV series called Breaking Bad.

Oh, I was meaning to ask you why the pic of SS standartunfuhrer Max Hansen?

Actually, I started a thread concerning the Catholic Church and how members of the Vatican helped Nazi War Criminals escape to South America. The thread wasn't well received by some, so they used Nazi avatars to try and p*** me off, so I also used one. Just never got around to changing it, it has just kinda stuck. I didnt even know who it was when I picked.

Cool. And good for you. I was once kicked off an internet history forum for using the username "Kristallnacht." The owner/administrator of the forum called me out on it and I explained that I was in a rock band called that. Which was true. We chose the name after a huge brawl in the club we were playing busted the huge plate glass window of the joint and forever after referred to that night as Kristallnacht. Me and our guitarist being WWII history buffs.

The admin guy still booted me. I think he was Jewish.  Ouch.

Peace.

Well that certainly sucks, but there is a lot of sensitivity on topics like this. But, I am certainly not using this avatar to make a statement that I support what the Nazis did. If I was told by someone they were offended by the photo, I would take down, but to date no one has complained. Another thing about Max Hansen, he was a down in the dirt soldier, and from what I have read one hell of a Commander. It's kinda amazing he survived the War, after the battles he fought in, and all the wounds he suffered, in addition he was never tried for War Crimes, just because he was SS doesn't mean he was a criminal.

I spent almost my entire life serving my country, 23 years in the US Army and many more as a US Contractor. So I can appreciate the hell soldiers go through.

Peace

He was a bona fide badass. Won the Knights Cross in gold and the Gold Warrior Clasp (forget the German name) for valor in close quarters hand to hand combat on the Eastern Front. Plus he was at the Ardennes. 

Thanks for your service.

Well, I don't think anyone here would call you names but I, at least, do not agree with what you say about christians being calm and happy.  It is just your delusion or excuse or some other aberration.  And the people you consider atheists probably don't call you names, unless you are attacking them first.  I haven't seen you do that, just repeat the same things over and over with disparate memes that actually mean the opposite of what you say.  If you hadn't mentioned you were retired I would have though you were a teenager.

UM dosen't consider it disrespectful to disagree with someone's belief. You can discuss people's beliefs with them as much as they respond to you.

Being Respectful and agreeing are not synonyms.

Logic it out honeybun, atheists and nonchristians are BOUND to be a little bit jumpy and irritable because always at the back of their minds is the nagging thought- "What if there IS a naughty step called hell and I've dun wrong by rejecting Jesus?"

Christians on the other hand don't have that worry..:D

Sweetie, you are the one that needs to logic it out.  Like I said, your memes attached to your posts display the opposite.  A guy holding a gun, a threatening, gun toting armored man threatening "fundies" etc.  Do you even red the words on the memes you post or do you just like the pictures.  They make you look like you are the jumpy, irritable one.

Yes Christians do have to worry, most go to church as a Social Experience, to meet others and to try and find themselves in the process. However, when you can become a Deacon because of the amount of money you donate to Church, do you call that Religous? Look at the largest and wealthiest Christian Organazation on the planet the Catholic Church. Look what that Organization has become, a hiding place for Pedafiles or those who protect them.

Look at the Christian Evangelicals like the Christian Zionists, who will do anything to get the Jewish People to return to Israel to occupy the lands God gave them according to Bible. So that this will bring about the Second Coming of Christ and ultimately Armageddon, now how crazy is that. Now I also understand that there are Christian Organization that do teach the Word According to scripture and try to live according to those teachings.

But all in all, Christianity along with most Religions cant be followed blindly and if you do you are foulish. In my opinion it doesn't matter what religion you choose you have to trust and have confidence within yourself first, so that you can see the truth and the bull**** being offered. So I really can't get behind your views which you are certainly entitled too, but I can except your belief in your Christian Values so long as I am not expected to follow or live by them.

I have no problem with true Christian values, I don't beleive in Omnipotent Deities who no all, see all and who created all, but .I have no problem with those who do unless they infringe upon my beleif system.

You see that's exactly why people don't pay serious attention to you or your beliefs. You can't force your belief system upon others, because you will and are viewed by many here as a Zealot and a Troll. Here is something you should think about:

However many holy words you read, However many you speak, What good will they do you If you do not act on upon them?

buddha

On life’s journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.”

Buddha

1-  Buddha also said-  "Believe nothing, no matter who said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense", so my reason and common sense tells me that Jesus rocks..:D

2-  Do "pure" people reject Jesus?

Remember, Buddha was a great truthseeker who lived 500 years BC, but the fact is he was only a human giving us his best guesses and hunches, but Jesus was the Son of God, spot the difference?..:P

Scientists estimate there are literally thousands of advanced alien civilisations in our galaxy alone (google 'Drake Equation'), and as Jesus said "I am not of this world", why shouldn't we believe him?

PS- he's not a "belief system", he's JESUS..:P

Like I have said, your beliefs are yours. But reality is reality, and every Middle Eastern Religion said that Jesus lived, but not as. Religous Deity, but as a man who may have been a Prophet. Buddha on the other hand walked the true path to an enlightened way of life, never claiming he was anything but a simple man with a path all could follow.

Yes like I said, Buddha gave us his best guesses and hunches 500 years BC and I like some of his stuff but don't like other bits such as-

"He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes"- Buddha, so he seems to be telling us that love is a no-no?

He is only what your mind makes him be, nothing more nothing less and certainly not omnipotent. The difference between Buddha and Jesus is simple Buddha certainly existed, Jesus certainly existed in some form. To follow Buddha, there is no magic that must be excepted only a path that is based upon your reactions to the world and the people within it. To follow Jesus, you must believe in Miracles and except what has never be proven. 

If you choose to follow supernatural events, beleive in unproven truths that find that's called having faith without substance. However to walk Buddhas path none of that is necessary, all it takes ls living a lifestyle that benefits all around you, which you choose to freely give and follow.

Your meaning is not accurate, but if you wish to learn more research it thats the best way to learn. But I will give you a hint, while some may attribute that quote to Buddha it is not written in the Dharma so it's not a quote by the Buddha.

1- If you say Jesus never existed, we could say the same about Buddha..:D

2- Buddha said- "No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may", so Buddha seems to be implying that not even he can save us!..Fact is we're all imperfect humans, so I'd have thought the last place we'd want to look for enlightenment is within our imperfect selves.

3- The whole of Israel saw Jesus doing miracles, how many more eyewitnesses do you need?..Anyway even WITHOUT any miracles I'd still follow him because his rebellious anti-establishment streak appeals to me..:D

"The whole of Israel" is a drastic overstatement. In fact, secular sources for JCs alleged miracles are virtually non-existent. Pliney, Josephus, Tacitus only mentions that his followers claimed he performed miracles.

As far as the Buddha, Siddartha Gautama is well-documented as a young Prince in the Benares region. There are, though, many anecdotal and apocryphal stories about him, like surviving on a grain of rice a day. And the whole 40 days under the Bodhi tree is also likely myth. But the vast majority of his followers today don't ascribe divinity to him. And he also never claimed it. Which I for one find refreshing.

Stay with me here as it is very confusing....Imagine a so-called god who decrees murder and stealing as a sin and then makes laws that saying these actions require a sin offering of killing and stealing who requires murder and stealing — The advent of PTSD — the god of the OT.  And to add more confusion ...having a particular country requiring the making an oath of not lying while hands on a book that states such things.  Just one example....there are many. Utter Madness. 

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers+31&version=MSG

They attacked Midian, just as God had commanded Moses, and killed every last man. Among the fallen were Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba—the five kings of Midian. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. The People of Israel took the Midianite women and children captive and took all their animals and herds and goods as plunder. They burned to the ground all the towns in which Midianites lived and also their tent camps. They looted and plundered everything and everyone—stuff and people and animals. They took it all—captives and booty and plunder—back to Moses and Eleazar the priest and the company of Israel where they were camped on the Plains of Moab, at Jordan-Jericho.

13-18 Moses, Eleazar, and all the leaders of the congregation went to meet the returning army outside the camp. Moses was furious with the army officers—the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds—as they came back from the battlefield: “What’s this! You’ve let these women live! They’re the ones who, under Balaam’s direction, seduced the People of Israel away from God in that mess at Peor, causing the plague that hit God’s people. Finish your job: kill all the boys. Kill every woman who has slept with a man. The younger women who are virgins you can keep alive for yourselves.

.....

48-50 The military officers—commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds—came to Moses and said, “We have counted the soldiers under our command and not a man is missing. We’ve brought offerings to God from the gold jewelry we got—armlets, bracelets, rings, earrings, ornaments—to make atonement for our lives before God.”

51-54 Moses and Eleazar the priest received the gold from them, all that fine-crafted jewelry. In total, the gold from the commanders of thousands and hundreds that Moses and Eleazar offered as a gift to God weighed about six hundred pounds, all donated by the soldiers who had taken the booty. Moses and Eleazar took the gold from the commanders of thousands and hundreds and brought it to the Tent of Meeting, to serve as a reminder for the People of Israel before God.

The biggest difference I spot is in the followers of Jesus and Siddartha Gautama. 

They were both human philosophers and teachers. And political insurrectionists, with Jesus doing much more of the latter.

But the Buddha's followers claim no divinity for him. They, like the entire Buddhist philosophy, are too pragmatic for that.

JCs followers endow him with not only supernatural powers but deification.

The irony here is that there is much more documented verification of Buddha's life and teachings from people outside his following than for Jesus. He is barely mentioned by secular sources. Thus we have a case of far greater acts and status claimed by a vastly smaller group.

We need to remember too that Jesus never claimed to be God. The closest he came was with his "I am the Light" stuff from John's gospel. Which was written a good four decades after his ministry and is thought by many biblical scholars to be the least accurate of the gospels. The Jesus Seminar was especially harsh on the accuracy and reliability of Jesus's quotes in John, as they black balled (claimed as never said) over 60% of his quotes.
