Most people that read the Bible all the way through, front to back, realize it's all nonsense.

Yes you are right, reasoning is the worst enemy that faith has.
Of course after reading the Bible I decide to do what Christ wanted me to do... FEED THE HUNGRY and GIVE WATER TO THE THIRSTY.
HE is so big and powerful that those not need my praying to him.
I just thank HIM for giving me REASONING, and many other things.

Reason, common sense and logic are not enemies of faith. Faith is the enemy of compassion, humanitarianism and charity. I founded a non-profit NGO in Peru for poor children. The biggest excuse makers to help starving children in absolute destitution are christians. Using their "faith" before they would pony up what would be the equlivilent of the cost of a happy meal, first they had to "pray about it" "ask their pastor" "wait for a sign" "help the kids when god sends them the money". Meanwhile atheists, Muslims, everyday common folk and even a world famous music celebrity has willingly and generously helped us. If christians really want to hide behind their faith as a way to ironically dodge their own godsent directions to feed the poor, and suffer little children, honesty would go a long way to just say, "I am not the christian I claim to be, I only care about myself and your children will starve before I ever help out" I'd have more respect for them. Faith without action=hypocrisy.

I was listening to a sermon the other night (yes, I listen to sermons to keep up with the cultural changes in Xianity) where the pastor, clearly in the modern Christianity camp, said that the more Christians look to materialism and evidence the smaller their religion and faith becomes. This was explained in a calm, almost soothing voice. The new preachers have adopted a style of sweetness and light. But the message is the same. Everyone needs religion and should be religious and have faith to the fullest extent possible. "It's okay to have reason," he said, "God gave us reason. But we need to be careful in our faith that our God given reason does not eclipse our faith."
I find this to be an indicator that the church is self-conscious of the fact that it's losing the faithful to rationalism. The picture illustrates that dilemma. So now they soft pedal their evangelical message. However slowly, the culture of religion is always changing.

Actually, I think this is a statement by Martin Luther, in the 16th century. Not exactly a news flash.

Thou shalt not bare false witness. Sucks for them.
