People do not have the right to an absolute "freedom of belief"

Eris
inspyre

It is my contention that human beings should not be allowed to exercise the right to absolute "freedom of belief", contrary to the popular opinions of most individuals. Indeed I would instead assert that there are certain beliefs within the spectrum of possibility that - as human beings - we should actively discourage from being supported or defended by our peers; namely those beliefs which survive without, and despite, scientifically verifiable evidence. It should be noted that this is a pur...

inspyre
theCall

Although there are many preachers and denominations that teach that Christians should tithe (give 10% of their income) to their churches, there is no scriptural basis for this. From the beginning, Christianity broke apart from the 614 laws of the OT, especially among gentiles. Yet, many preachers teach that this is the one law that we must keep. Meanwhile: 1. The scripture always speaks of the tithe as food, never money, 2. The first tithe was a customary offering to Melchizedek for protec...
