The Christian insurance product is a Life After Death. Policy. Very profitable- never a claim.

Insurance, no way.  At best it is a BS policy.

I canceled the policy after I found out that there is no sex in the life after death.

dude, you ancestors do seem to be couple of monkeys [pun intended], don’t they? LOL.

Quite frankly, There is A Lot more to you than your private parts and what you’re willing to do with them.

If you knew who you truly are….

A Conqueror in Christ -Romans 8:37
A Member of the royal Priesthood - 1st Peter 2:9
A heir—of God and co-heir with Christ -Galatians 4:7
A Pillar in the Temple of God -Revelation 3:12
An Oak of Righteousness -Isaiah 61:3
A Vessel of Honor 2nd Timothy 2:21
A Vessel of Mercy Romans 9:23
A god -Psalms 82:6

Etc.

Religious autocracy, hierarchy, and monasticism, with dictatorial priestly councils issuing edicts, drafting canon laws, and formulating so-called infallible creeds, are all incompatible with democratic congregationalism

21st century religion. A democratic, practical, diverse working religion devoted to ethical living without imposing ritual obligations or prescribing beliefs about the supernatural will become the religion of the 21st century.

My blog/forum rejects authoritarian beliefs and the validity of religious dogma, deities, devils, demons, holy buildings, holy books, transcendental justifications such as a dependence on belief without reason, the supernatural, or texts of allegedly divine origin.

Faith is an unacceptable basis for action.

Yes Mike I am sure.

Google is good at finding trends.  The effects of the Abrahamic religions from their beginning (a few thousand years ago) are the rippling data of monotheism impacting polytheism.

I think of it like this, it took a few thousand years for us to get to where we are in terms of religiosity. It could take us a few thousand years before the Abrahamic religions are more dustbin religions history.

What’s that list got to do with who “you” are?

Hell, what’s it got to do with the “god” of light and creation, life and love?

Hell, what does the label “god” even mean???

Me neither, but considering how much people banter around his name I figured someone ought it.  Figured the question was worth a try.

Seems to me like it’s all a self-created delusion based on ego (that would include self-interest, of the unenlightened kind) more than actually striving to understanding the creation we were born into and our human condition.
Oh and this “God” people keep batting other folks over the head with, doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the actual creation of our universe,
so I’m left with a fart blowing in the wind. 

Excuse the crudeness, guess I’ve got evangelicals dancing in my head, they do that to me, the disingenuous arrogant phonies,
people who are more interested in their own Prosperity Doctrine, more Profits Über Alles mentality than anything that has to do with humanity’s spiritual struggles.
Just look at how fast all their high and mighty “Christian” standards have been forgotten now that they got someone even greedier than they are into power.

Actually when I first saw this thread I thought it was about this:

How People Are Using Religion to Circumvent Obamacare
By CLAIRE ZILLMAN January 4, 2016
http://fortune.com/2016/01/04/faith-based-health-insurance/

The Affordable Care Act has had one largely unanticipated consequence: it’s driven the growth of faith-based health insurance ministries.

The ministries, which provide cost-sharing services to consumers with similar religious beliefs, have boomed in large part because of an exemption to the ACA that allows participants in the ministries to avoid being fined for not purchasing health insurance elsewhere. Membership in the ministries—many of which are run by Amish or Mennonite communities or individual churches—has reached an estimated 500,000, up from 200,000 prior to the passing of the ACA, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The fine Americans will face for not buying insurance will rise to $695 next year.

Consumers have embraced the ministries thanks to their lower price tag—some cost 30% of private insurance—but ministries’ growth has raised concerns among some insurance commissioners since the ministries aren’t regulated by state commissioners that typically protect consumers from unlawful practices and ensure that members’ claims are paid. Some ministries also don’t pay for preventative medical care and some don’t allow members to sue over disagreements, according to the Journal.

What you say I am essentially composed of is what I assume you apply to all humans.

One of the two of us know much less of what we are talking about than the other.
