Greetings Deists

by Fester 14 Replies latest jw friends


    Deism is still belief in God the creator. Just a lazy God who sits on his throne and does nothing.

    He or It expects us to be moral but does not explain what morals are. No Holy writings. No prophets. No churches. It has thrown out all the details that caused other religions to contradict themselves.

    It is the the same old company, re-badged and sold under a new name. Deism has cut out the middle men. It's like buying on line and pretending we are not shoppers.

    Deism is a spider that has had some of its legs pulled of.


    Fester: I initially joined this group a couple of years back thinking it would be a great place to spread the real good news about Deism.

    This thread has gone awfully quiet. Perhaps the news was not so good but just a different angle on an age old concept?

    You know, Gladiator - I quite liked your revamped definition of deism. I thought it was sort of like cutting out the middle man (in my case, Jesus) as well.



    Tammy - Middle men have their uses. They are life's cushions that keep us in our comfort zone and sell us what we need - at a price.

    The sketch:

    holy music

    FOLLOWERS: ...Look! Ah! Oh! Oh!

    ARTHUR: He has given us a sign!


    SHOE FOLLOWER: He has given us... His shoe!

    ARTHUR: The shoe is the sign. Let us follow His example.

    SPIKE: What?

    ARTHUR: Let us, like Him, hold up one shoe and let the other be upon our foot, for this is His sign, that all who follow Him shall do likewise.

    EDDIE: Yes.

    SHOE FOLLOWER: No, no, no. The shoe is...

    YOUTH: No.

    SHOE FOLLOWER: ...a sign that we must gather shoes together in abundance.

    GIRL: Cast off...

    SPIKE: Aye. What?

    GIRL: ...the shoes! Follow the Gourd!

    SHOE FOLLOWER: No! Let us gather shoes together!

    FRANK: Yes.

    SHOE FOLLOWER: Let me!

    ELSIE: Oh, get off!

    YOUTH: No, no! It is a sign that, like Him, we must think not of the things of the body, but of the face and head!

    SHOE FOLLOWER: Give me your shoe!

    YOUTH: Get off!

    GIRL: Follow the Gourd! The Holy Gourd of Jerusalem!

    FOLLOWER: The Gourd!

    HARRY: Hold up the sandal, as He has commanded us!

    ARTHUR: It is a shoe! It is a shoe!

    HARRY: It's a sandal!

    ARTHUR: No, it isn't!

    GIRL: Cast it away!

    ARTHUR: Put it on!

    YOUTH: And clear off!

    SHOE FOLLOWER: Take the shoes and follow Him!

    GIRL: Come,...

    FRANK: Yes!

    GIRL: ...all ye who call yourself Gourdenes!

    SPIKE: Stop! Stop! Stop, I say! Stop! Let us-- let us pray. Yea, He cometh to us, like the seed to the grain.
