Nothing new there , I've been saying that all along
What you've been stating over and over is someone's misguided opinion and in typical Curious fashion, you want to make a mountain out of a molehill. How about you direct and focus your attention on a REAL pressing matter, which has been proven to be a FACT that Christians suffer mental issues. Your mental issues are pretty obvious to me, perhaps you could be a test subject for new and innovative treatments to help your fellow Christians who suffer in silence and secrecy.

<quoted text>The important thing here is, Christians have a desperate need to get credit for charities. It is what Jesus would do. Giving is not important unless you get credit, right? Well seems to be the logic of Curious and friends.
Agreed.

The BIBLE is a book written with a mans hand and made to fit the region you live in. GOD is in your heart if taught the correct way it cant be bad but man kind will find a way to push young people away by using it to benefit themselves. All instruction for life is the same just taught differently, Don't worry if GOD is on your side, worry if you are on his because GOD is always correct! PREY FROM YOUR HEART AND YOU WILL ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU NEED, PREY FROM YOUR WANTS AND IT WILL GO BAD, Search deep inside and you will find the way.(Teach by example and no one will do bad things on the curve) Just look at nature it seems to have a handle on it, if bible study is in school some one will goof it up we are a GODLY country and if people do not want GOD in there life I suggest they move to a country that believes the way they do and this debate would be over!

The fact is....you can't admit to being wrong, whether it's due to your enormous mental block or your self conceited pride is anyone's guess.

So you disagree with freedom of religion in America?
How about you move and we let freedom stay here.

WHY I BELIEVE THE BIBLE TO BE THE WORD OF GOD
1 What the Bible itself says of its origin 2 Timothy 3:16,17 Revelation 1:1
2 It's detailed knowledge of future had to come from a superhuman source 2 Peter 1:20, 21 Isaiah 42:9
3 It's internal harmony. written down by 40 men over a period of 1600 years.
4 It's scientific accuracy compared to other writings from the same time period.
5 It's frank and honest writers.
6 It's preservation despite vicious efforts to destroy it.
7 What it has done for me!
THAT SAYS A LOT FOR MY GOD!

Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
What's all this?

You quoted Deuteronomy as the test of a prophet.

It says that what is prophesied must come true or the person is not a prophet.

Jonah prophesied that Ninevah would be destroyed in forty days.
(Jonah 3:1-5)

It never happened.

Jonah failed the test.

Therefore, Jonah was not a prophet.

That's using your own standard for prophecy which you quoted from the bible.

Sooooooooooooo

When people say Jonah was a prophet they are lying, because according to Deuteronomy, he wasn't.

Or

The test in Deuteronomy is wrong and things don't have to come true for someone to be a prophet.

Looks like another of those biblical contradictions

There are 3 ways to learn.
1 Can take God's word for it. The creator knows more about us than we know about our selves.
2 Can learn from the mistakes of others.
3 Learn from experience. That is called learning the hard way. Those who insist on learning things the hard way end up learning a lot of things they would have been better off not knowing in the first place
So in the finally it is much better to study the Bible and take God's word for it! He will never tell you something that will harm you!
The Bible itself says it is from God, mankind’s Creator
2 Tim. 3:16, 17:“All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.”
Rev. 1:1:“A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place.”
2 Sam. 23:1, 2:“The utterance of David the son of Jesse . . . The spirit of Jehovah it was that spoke by me, and his word was upon my tongue.”
Isa. 22:15:“This is what the Sovereign Lord, Jehovah of armies, has said.”
We would expect God’s message to all mankind to be available around the globe. The Bible, the whole or in part, has been translated into some 1,800 languages. Its circulation totals in the billions. Says The World Book Encyclopedia:“The Bible is the most widely read book in history. It is probably also the most influential. More copies have been distributed of the Bible than of any other book. It has also been translated more times into more languages than any other book.”—(1984), Vol. 2, p. 219.

That shows what you know about the Bible! You need a serious study of the Bible!
John 8:31,32 “If YOU remain in my word, YOU are really my disciples, 32&#8239;and YOU will know the truth, and the truth will set YOU free.

I know exactly what I'm talking about.

I asked SevenT what the test of a prophet was and he quoted Deuteronomy. You'll know the scripture - it says that unless what is prophesied comes true then that person is a false prophet.

Jonah made a prophesy that Ninevah would be destroyed in forty days. It didn't happen.

Therefore, Jonah was a false prophet.

<quoted text>A person who whines about Obama's name is a republican, through and through. It is the party line. If you wish not to be called a republican, stop acting like one.
That's as idiotic as saying that if you agree with one tenet of Islam your a Muslim.. One tenet of Marx your a Communist.. One tenet of Christianity your a Baptist...

Those in the republican party call me a Liberal or a Democrat because I am an atheist and think pot and pretty much any thing a person wants to put into their own body should be allowed..

Each Individual issue I make my views upon are Individually formed based on the evidence I have seen that makes rational sense... I do No make them because I have some total agreement with some foolish party loyalty as you seem to do..

As for Obama his Name was Barry Soetoro and was used during his school time in Indonesia and under Indonesia law the last mane of the Mother and any children are legally changed to that of the father.. Since I have never seen the documentation requesting a legal name change back to Obama then his name is Soetoro and was called Berry by his Indonesian class mates..

His History during his college time is all but unknown and what is publicly known would not allow anyone else to pass a Confidential Security Clearance.. When I received my first clearance my high school and college teachers were questioned . police records checked, College transcripts ordered.. But a President does not require such... It's totally up to the press and public to research their backgrounds and vet them... That was not done ..

For example no one knows the funding for his college , housing and trips to Pakistan... there are many question marks and I have looked at the PDF of his birth cert posted on Whitehouse.Gov and it is NOT a certified copy of his birth cert.. And to date a Certified Copy of the paper document has never been produced..

If the same level of background was out on a Republican you would be calling for a Investigation ... Bush was pilloried because of a college DUI , called a drunk and every name in the book yet the admitted dope smoking , coke snorting college days of Obama are given little to no concern... While I don't care if he smoked enough dope to make him a Rastafarian the lack of Background Investigation and the legal road blocks place to stop such is a red flag that anyone that was not a party hack would be concerned about...

So yes there are some Republican positions I fully Support, There are some Democrat positions I fully support, There are some Tea Party positions I fully support, There are some Christian positions I fully support, There are some Communist positions I fully support, There are some of just about Every Political and Social positions of every variation I fully support..

What I don't do is pick one and follow the company line because the party says so.. Like you seem to think is the way to go... To me much of the Republican Party are the same as the Democrat Party in that they have taken the Individual Power of the People and helped in converting a Federal Republic into a National Socialist form of governance without the required amendment and ratification of the Constitution ...

I am not a Republican even thought I agree with many of their positions, I am Not a Democrat even though I agree with many of their positions.. I vote for the Individual that has the chance of being elected to office that closest fits my views on specific policies based on their record and backgrounds I can actually verify ... And will not vote for anyone in any party that will take positions that I do not agree with if I find that particular position important to me..

You be a party hack if you like... I refuse to be played the fool like that....
