In response to this:

Barry H. Manners:


I want to ask all of you another question.


I told all of you that the church my friends are going to start is either a Church of Freethought or  Unitarian Universalist.  A Church of Freethought is going to more than likely sponsor atheism or agnosticism, though believers are not neccessarily barred from mebership.  The Unitarian Universalists will let just about anybody and their dog (but no cats) join their denomination regardless of doctrine.

Why did all of you keep giving advice knowing that the doctrines going to be taught are false from your perspective?  I am not trying to embarrass or offend anyone.  I am just surprised.

How much does a typical small brick church house cost?  Say, one that will fit around fifty to a hundred people rather comfortably.  There will be no Sunday School so that will cut some of the costs out. Nor will we need a baptistry or fellowship hall.
I responded to this. There is no mention of U/Us or atheist organizations wanting to build these buildings.

You can always do like a lot of groups do in Africa and just meet under a tree or on a river bank.

      ::headscratch::    I am really confused. I don't understand the purpose of these groups getting together. What will they discuss? How there is a God or not a God and what is the after life is like if there is one?

These people might be searching for the truth, because before I was a  believer there was no way I would discuss religion or God, nope to busy  ::cheers::

But when I came to believe then I  ::huggingyou:: changed and went to and listen to the  ::preachit:: or the  ::priest:: and made sure what they said was right  ::reading:: 

If it was truth then  ::amen:: but if it wasn't the truth  ::pondering:: and then   ::frustrated::, ::cryingtears:: and  ::announcment::, ::pray::and  ::saint:: and sometimes  ::groupprayer:: which could cause  rofl or  ::faint:: or  ::laughinghisterically:: with often  ::thankyouthankyou::  because  ::GodisGood:: and  ::Jesus::
is Lord.

Why do you ask, Barry?
I have a friend who is a freethinker, and he has friends who describe themselves as agnostic. They were entertaining the idea of maybe starting a Church of Freethought or perhaps a Unitarian/Universalist Church.

Turns out the estimate he got was way more than they were willing to shell out for, and that is with them actually building it. In the poorer side of town there was an old abandoned Baptist Church with seven pews on both sides of the sanctuary for $10,000.  But the roof would have had to be completely replaced.[/color]
free thought ---------------Satan sure has them fooled ..


to be truly free one would have to be christian because only the truth of Jesus ,as ones only savior from sin ..only that sets one free. Including ones thoughts .. WITH OUT JESUS ,, your friemds are slaves to satan ,, in their  thoughts words and deeds

The Children of Abraham
 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
