    edit: Songz answered the question quite well. thanks.

    got another one:

    2) why do people bother to pray to ask god for things if god already has a divine plan and won't alter it?
    I always wondered that, "lord give me strength" but what do you have to offer? Im sure merely believing in a god is not of worth... That sounds uber atheist I know, but I am slightly agnostic too, "god" is something we can't comprehend, not what is in a book.

So you should pray to God to help you resist the influence of the demons so that you can starve them to death by not feeding them any of your soul's energy. Then you can go to heaven when you die. Otherwise you'll be reincarnated as a pig and then as a worm and then as a weed and then a rock and then all of the experience and soul energy you've accumulated over all of your lives will be absorbed into God so that you can become a flower and then a bee and then a bird and then a dog/dolphin and then a mentally retarded human and then a smart human who can pray to God so that he'll let you stop reincarnating.
    - Gnosticism as preached by Samael Aun Weor

    Also, if you suffer as a flower or a dog or a tree then it's because the other person who killed you in a competition for resources for survival killed you for the greater good because you had bad karma which is why reborn souls have to reincarnate as innocent flower/animal/plant lives free of suffering so that they can grow their soul energy, which is why innocent lives don't experience suffering and any life that harms an innocent life becomes evil and accrues karma and it's ok for animals to eat each other because they all share the same soul so it's like the one that got murdered is helping the predator to continue its life and develop its soul because the prey's mission on earth was complete so it could go to heaven which is why it died. And if anything bad happens to you it is because of bad karma from your wrongdoings and sin in previous lives (sex being the pinnacle of all sin) and because horrible experiences are a growing experience so that you can learn to control yourself when the demons in your head are trying to make you do wrong things.
    Can I have what you are smoking? Also that sounds like mild schizophrenia.

    No. This forum has proven time and again that it cannot be nice about these subjects. At all.

    It isn't too bad now but I'VE GOT MY EYE ON YOU ALL.

    I would be surprised, if the breakthrough in that regard came from this little forum...
    It' not a nice subject. Let's call the thing by it's right name.
    Religion is about power and restriction of that power is again, just about power.

    One might say there is such a thing as private believe. The only problem is with it, that there is no such thing as a publicly expressed private believe.

    (Op should probably have asked for pms. Making a thread ends in the thread going a threads way.)

    Stay frosty.
