Hey scumbag, I see you're a real tough guy on the internet, but let's see if you can tell someone to their face they're going to hell. I guarantee you've never done it before in your life, except maybe little kids, since you know they wouldn't knock your teeth out for saying it. You are a coward who does not practice what you preach, you just get off on going around insulting people and condemning them to hell. It's because of lowlifes like you that more and more people decide they want nothing to do with christianity. Why would anyone want to be a christian when it produces hateful bigots like you?

Well now, when all of you get over yourselves. You can see how the people that were actually in the shootings are doing.

http://www.wbir.com/news/local/story.aspx...

Ummm....as for who goes to hell and who doesn't. That answer will come on Judgement day, and not a day before or after. And certainly not by the mouth or any human.

As said, get over yourselves. You are but a minute spect of dust in the framework of time.

Get through your own day, and worry not about others getting through theirs.

For your info yes I have in person told people if they are not saved they are going to hell. That is the plain truth. Accept it or don't. I could care less. It's your choice. If you don't like it take it up with God. That is HIS law not mine.

Anybody who reads the Bible can know exactly who is going to Heaven and who is going to Hell. You know it now. Not on judgement day. Judgement day is just when it will happen.

If you are a born again Christian saved by the Grace of God when you die you will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

If you are NOT a Christian and you have rejected Jesus and lived your life for yourself and how ever you wanted to then when you die you will be eternally seperated from God. You will spend eternity in Hell.

It's explained very clearly in the Bible. Like I said before, you don't have to believe it. It's your choice.

Yeah right, you sick freak. If there is a hell, YOU are going straight there, f**kwad. I don't believe for one second you've told anyone they're going to hell in person. But the fact that you go around condemning everyone makes YOU guilty of a sin. You are full of pride, and pride will get you a first-class ticket straight to hell.

Not that hell even exists, but if it did and it's the way you christians describe it, you would most certainly go there.

So now you think you're qualified to pass judgment on anyone who doesn't believe exactly as you do? What a lowlife sack of shit. Obviously the bible is man-made and a work of fiction, and if causes people to be as close-minded and hateful as you, then it's a very evil book, along the lines of Mein Kampf.

There is nothing in the bible that would indicated that god would care if someone used the f-word in connection to his name. And since your god doesn't exist, it's hardly important.

Telling God what you just did is not something that can be done in a joking matter. Blasphemy is not a joking matter. You might think it all fun and games but God does not. And I can pretty much guarantee that using the F word in a direct quote to God telling him to shut up is not something that would be taken lightly!

However, there are very few actual christians; most are followers of paul and ignore what jesus wrote. And the paulist statement has been the basis for refusing priesthood for the RCC and many other churches for centuries.

It's sad when a heretic knows more about your bible then you do. God never said women can't be preachers and neither did Jesus. Paul said that in a letter disscusing a problem with the church of Corinth. that being said it's not the word of god.

Sorry, but that's not true by any stretch. Being "saved" means nothing if you sin; you will still have to repent. And you need to repent of your blasphemy--that you know the hearts of men better than your god does.

There is a difference between righteousness and self-righteousness, and you crossed that line a long time ago.

I believe you are wrong. Reading the bible does not say who is going to heaven and who is going to hell.
Yes, Jesus is the way. But isn't that easy. So, that would be why Judgement day is coming, and God will be the Judge.
It states in the bible, that you would not know your heart, nor another's. For you do not know the hairs on a person's head. Until you know this ....you will not know jack about what is going to happen come judgement day.
You can run around and make all kinds of blanketed statements, but that still does not give you or any other human the right to judge another.
Period!

The bible says some pretty insane shit. Anyone who takes any of that nonsense literally is going to end up being one screwed up individual. I think one of the worst things parents can do is force religion down their kids' throats. They should wait till the kid is old enough to make his own decisions before they enroll him/her in bible school and drag them to church every Sunday. I think if parents stopped brainwashing their kids from birth, we would have a lot less of these fundamentalist loonies running around.

So we should be calling them "Paulians" or "Paulites". How a-paul-ling.(Sorry ..)
Did Paul tell the priests to rape children?
Did Paul hate homos?
Did Paul tell them to gain control of governments and legislate non-religious people away?
Did Paul exhort religious leaders to become filthy rich and still beg for money?
Did Paul support giving starving people Bibles before food?
Did Paul advocate the killing of doctors?
Did Paul use religion as a smokescreen to push his countries agenda?
Just a few, innocent questions ..

That is the dumbest and most tired arguement around. I guess parents should wait until their kids are old old enough to figure out how to eat on their own before they shove food down their throat?!?!

For those who have a fundemental faith and belief in the Bible (God's Word), we believe our kid's would be in jeopardy, just like you, with Jesus in their lives. You are just hurt, bitter and angry and I accept that, but to say that sharing my faith with my children is the worst thing I could do....obviously you don't have children!

Whether you are Christian or not, you share your values with your kids... I share the love of Christ and for all people with mine and you share a Hate for Christians

Wrong again. I'm actually quite content. Just because there are those of us who resisted the brainwashing as children and have learned to think for ourselves doesn't mean we're bitter or angry. In fact, people like me are liberated and we don't live in constant fear.

And it's one thing to share your values with your kids, but that's not what you people do. What you do is shove your christian beliefs down their throats and never let them decide for themselves. You scare the shit out of them with scary stories about how they'll burn in a lake of fire if they don't do what some centuries-old book tells them to do. The real tragedy here is that people like you are allowed to breed. I honestly feel sorry for your poor children. They'll never know what it's like to be free-thinkers.

I would suggest that parents not shove anything down their kids' throats, especially before they are ready. You can harm a child by trying to feed it solid foods too early, and you can harm a child by exposing him to some of the horrors of the bible too soon.

It never ceases to amaze me that fundies call for a ban on horror movies, etc, especially because of the children, then heap on them the genocides, plagues, etc of the bible.

As a Unitarian,I find it hard to believe that someone would be moved to violence against us. Untiarians believe that God is available to ALL, regardless of "denomination", or even "religion"...hence, the Chalice and its flame. God "speaks" to us all differently as we are all unique individuals. It is so sad that such an inclusive belief as ours would be the target of such evil. Sad....
