The Questions for tonight

The Questions
1. What do we do with the military language within our religious traditions (eg “LORD of Hosts,” etc)? Does its existence advocate for war?
2. Is worship/belief of God for the sake of getting into heaven worship/belief? If not why is it people worship God? For God’s sake alone? How does our intentions play into this?
3. Is the organization of religion the problem with religion? How else can we experience God in community? Is that the problem, is community over rated?
4. Would Jesus be a Reagan Democrat?
5. Is there any reasonable (logical) way to make people believe in God?
6. Is resurrection/life after death necessary for Justice? Is Justice necessary?
