I haven't gone to church since I was really young. My friends that do on the otherhand, will get into arguments with our History teacher over subjects of Religion and such. Is there such thing as a Buddhist-Christian?

People act good for many reasons, to me if I didn't believe in a God I wouldn't act good. Why waste time helping some one when I could put them out of thier misery? Because I believe I would be severly punished. Ganhdi would say he may get down graded from a human when he is reincarnated. Though Atheist are different in this case, mostly they act good for themselves. You said you get a good feeling from being good, so that is for yourself. You see many people act good for different reasons, but what I believe is they act good for the wrong reasons.

Why is only your faith in god keeping you from evil, what if one day god's existence was disproven? Does that mean you would go on to unleash this unchecked hatred onto the world.

Taishi Ci wrote:Erm pardon not quite sure what the first question is asking, but the second one, Really it's not Faith, it more of anything you believes or feel that has to do with how a person behaves.
