yes then you think that one way religius invitation to make a band on the site that is "home" of all the members(all religions) is ok?

maybe this way of action limits the members that are not by their choice Christians..and who think that would be intersting to participate in band....but they cant...becouse ther are not Christians?

As i saw it, Leedbreak did actualy state that you didn't have to be christian to yoin Walley soldiers.
If he/she don't want to yoin the band becouse it sing about christan belief, it is the same thing as he/she not participating of the reason that they play jazz, and he/she don't prefer to play jazz smile.gif
A christian band would never be the "home" of all christians, becouse it is not a collection or anything, its just a group of people who likes to play and write songs with christian content smile.gif
I understand your complaint, and i agree that subjects like this may make groups and/or arguments. But relax, thinks like that simply can't happen here at GMC smile.gif

I myself is christian, and i think its cool that we have a christian band smile.gif

I'm not Christian and I feel fine about there being a Christian virtual band, there are plenty of other virtual bands to join and it's just a different genre of music, like Black metal or funk. I don't think anyone's being left out, so it's all goood. smile.gif


Same here,as long as the cause is good and shares nice vibes,it's good. smile.gif

I got nothing against a christian band.. i'm not christian or religious at all, but too me it's the same as someome getting together to start a (for example) country-band because they all like countrymusic.

..and hopefully it will sound like Stryper biggrin.gif

It's pretty easy to start war or arguing.
What's "hard" to achieve is full understanding for any kind of difference between people.

Seems like we(GMC) are haven't found it to be hard to achieve at all. smile.gif

I feel no person is better than the other. It's a personal belief and each has there own.

What's nice is that a guitar and GMC can bring all these differences together! smile.gif

This is what repeatedly amazes me about this forum. No other forum I know of can keep a civil discussion about this for 7 pages. smile.gif

Me: Apathetic agnostic atheist. I don't claim to know -- nor do I think anyone ever will know -- whether there is a god or not (agnostic), but I decide not to believe in him (atheist), because I find the question of his/her/its existence meaningless, unanswerable and irrelevant to my life (apathetic).

The poll is a bit skewed, since there is such a thing as an agnostic theist (believes, but does not know), just as most atheists (except the strong ones) are agnostic (don't believe, but do not know)

I don't think there is a god. The idea of a god was started thausands of years ago, probably because people where trying to figure out how we where created. Back then a god would seem as the only logical reason of how us humans where created, because people didn't know very much about the nature, physics and evolution of species. But today science has taught us a lot on how us humans, the earth and the universe could have been created. And I think that theese theories are much more logical than the idea of a god that created it all. I mean, people probably assumed that there was a god just because they could not come up with a more logical reason. But today's theories are based on much more reliable sources, and the theory of evolution and the big bang surfaced from centuries of studiyng and learning how the nature and physics work. And since we have learned so incredibly much on nature and physics over the years, scientists have come up with a theory that makes so much more sense to me.

I used to be christian when I was a kid, but now the idea of a god just seems silly to me. I mean the idea of a god is the most simple answer people could possibly think of. It's almost like saying that it rains because the "sky people" are crying... (I know that was a little extreme comparison).

By the way, theese opinions are my own and I respect those who believe in God, even though I absolutly do not believe in god myself..

I'm ortodox christian, but wanna avoid the subject, because I'm very open minded in terms of religions. For all I care any religion is the same for me, they all share some great ideas how people should behave, and if only people just listened to those wise words they would live a whole lot better instead of using religion as a mean of politics and making material wealth.
