    This is an article by Bishop John Shelby Spong. He questions whether one can dismiss the traditionally held view of God as a "supreme being" who "... desires our praises, elicits our confessions, reveals to us the divine will and who calls us into the spiritual life of communion with this Divine Being..." He has some interesting views, I have read his book "A New Christianity For a New World", and found it to be broad, informative and challenging. The man causes quite a stir, as Google will show you.

    I won't offer an opinion on this, for no other reason than to annoy JP.

    Doesn't annoy me mate, you just carry on. Your the one that got a warning for your behaviour, not me.

    Everyone has seen you in your true light anyway, so I really don't care whether you express an opinion or not. Particularly in another of your ridiculous threads.

    Did you read the article JP? Of course not, not part of your agenda is it, especially when it comes to topics you already know the answer to.

    Anyone who takes the time to understand what this guy has to say, would feel enlightened. Unless of course you believe in a simplistic, literal translation of the bible, and an interferring god.

    As for the warning JP, I got the same PM you got, probably ruined your chances of the mod job you covert so much.

    What has this all got to do with the topic?

    God is obviously dead.

    Bush and Blair have caused a we stir here and there also, Anyone with an educated or even un-educated opinion will probably cause a stir. It&#39;s the ones that believe it that concern me.

    Doesn&#39;t one have to believe in the concept
    of an Supreme Being to have an opinion as
    to weather one exist or not?

    (does that make any sense?...i just got up)


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
