Let them (the masses) learn when they are ready to learn.

The troops are getting ready to come home after the surge in Iraq has failed.

So yes evil should be combatted at every point.

Wrong, Volitzer!!

The troops will NOT get to go home under Bush.  The only troops that will be coming home are the ones put there to help with the "surge," which they would have had to do anyway.


As for the rest of the 130,000 stuck over there, Bush has NO plans to bring them home, which means they will be stuck there until the next administration comes in!

Sorry I meant in the sense of the legislature.  The House of Reps and the Senate have plans to make resolutions to bring the troops home.  Yet you are right Bush won't make it happen.  Would be interesting to see if they could get a 60% overidding veto.  It may just save some of their political careers.

I believe we all have a moral responsibility to fight evil. I believe it is inherited in us, through each and everyone of us is an innate morality of love, and justice. Throughout history, this has been played out, over and over, but has also been used against people by misuse and for injustice. I believe it is up to each individual to decide to follow the path of good, or evil, and that is where the good and evil comes from, not from GOD, or Gods, or Demons, or Devils, but from each individual, and each individual has the choice at any and every given moment to choose.I say choose wisely, go for the good, keep at it, as best you can. I do not believe I will ever be a saint, never have been, and never will be, but I can do the best I can with what I have to work with, which is a logical brain, a kind heart, and a respect for my fellow human beings. Chose to practice the good character qualities, instead of the bad character defects. Illness is when the soul is ill at ease. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it, if it seems evil or bad, don't do it. Find something else to do, do something good, try to make things better. Keep an open mind, but don't let others walk on you. You are your brothers keeper, but not his mother or father. Remember be good to yourself, and take care of yourself, you cannot help others if you can't take care of yourself. Above all trust in yourself, you are the greatest miracle on earth each and everyone of you, we all are. We are living breathing conscious beings with a soul and spirit, we have freedom to choose, but we need to choose wisely through educating ourselves in many areas of life.

I believe that we need to replace the word "evil" with the word "illness"... and I believe we have a moral responsibility for the welfare of our brothers and sisters who are out of balance and ill.  I believe that we incarnate into this earth experience in order to improve things for anyone we come into contact with.  great discussion!

One does have a moral responsibility to fight evil, and we must fight it in whatever form it takes. And what is evil?  We all know it when we see it.

Cheers,

I believe the best way to fight evil is to look in one's self and abolish the evil there, for evil begins with the individual. Lead a good clean life, go to church, give the Lord his worship, then you have done your part to fight evil.

Bollox !!!!  One needs to stand up to evil on a daily basis.

Many church goers who would lay down for the NWO are not doing their part to fight evil.

Bollox yourself, Volitzer!  Unless one leads a good clean life, goes to church, gives the Lord his worship, then you have not done your part to fight evil.

As for the 'NWO,' render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, it is the next world that is important, not this one.

So you should live your life as a slave and not care about this world?  How is that moral?

How is leading a good, clean God-fearing life leading the life of a slave, Robert? In any rate, better to be a slave to the Almighty than a slave to evil, right?

You can live a good, moral life and stand up to oppression and tyranny without being a slave to your delusions.  The term "god-fearing" always makes me laugh.  Why would you fear someone that you're also suppose to love?   Sounds like S&M to me.
