But who says you don't worship yourselves, substituting 'God' for yourself?

I'm not sure how you are able to twist this around anon. This is what is wrong with your brand of thought. Nothing is as it should be, everything is complicated and roundabout. What one says always has hidden meaning, etc, etc.

Why can't you guys just take others at their words? If Patrick says that he worships someone other than man, you should believe him. That may not make sense to you, but for the majority of us, it is quite self-evident.
Anon,

Well,Christ is a historical figure,He claimed to be God and Man and the promised Messiah. I believe He is.

How that is worshipping me I cannot figure.

Now,you people worship yourselves openly as you are wise enough to know God is a joke. Me,I'm not hardly that wise.
Because I think pride is inescapable, and people who think they've escaped it only make it stronger cause they don't admit their own fallibility.

Yes, typical of the left. They take their own shortcomings/strengths, or whatever they consider them, and assign them to others naturally. That is one of the things that gets you in trouble.
Anon,

Pride or arrogance is part of all human kind,this is a fact and is one of the most difficult weaknesses to tame.
Where you are making a huge error is thinking erroneously that a Christian is taught to think he is WORTHY of anything. The Bible teaches clearly that we are all totally depraved as relates to God and after salvation anything we are is because of HIS work,not ours.

A Biblically oriented Christian will be the least arrogant man you meet as he is more aware than anyone else how pitiful he is in regards to his own "goodness" or "talent" or "works". The Bible teaches this repeatedly.

In fact,if Matthew chapter 5 is read,you will see the results of this "Biblically oriented believer". Having said this,the harsh truth is 99.9% of us are not measuring up to this standard,yours truly being among the 99.9%.

You're close - but not quite there yet. What ties your opinions together and gives it a mistargeted but well attempted thrust is behavioral psychology - and the physical mechanisms which drive it.

Fallibility there can be, but not in substituting self-love for greater love. You don't need to belong to any major religion to accept an ethos of belief, an epistemology which gives your life meaning. Most Leftists and self-styled Atheists are animated by personal conviction that what they believe is bigger than logic and unarguable truths.

I've written before than the foundational elements that most Leftists build their belief systems on are disinformation. To them, they hold religion, in general, in contempt because of lies taught to them as children which they had no reason to question at the time. Now, as adults, the disinformation is unchallengeable. One example is the concept of Dark Ages as a time of evil unscientific barbarism brought on by stiff-necked Priests. Untrue. Another is how Columbus was checked by the Church in his attempt to discover America. Another lie. Another was that the Inquisition was done by Religious zealots - when in fact, the Church fought against the excesses of governmental brutality.

On the other side of the Leftist Isms, is the concept of a big central government as a savior - necessary to offset Robber Barons and greedy Capitalism. Such basic ideology is untrue, but unarguable to most who view them as givens.
