And the "snake handlers" are not a mainline Christian denomination.
What part of "mainline" is relevant? Not a one of them was around in the beginning, and all of them have all sorts of trappings and doctrine that Jesus didn't envision.

LOL!!!.... He didn't say "your" numbers. He said "your numbers argument."

How par, for "your standard deviation."

His point about "narrow is the Way ..." is valid.

Leave it to a Gnostic to twist the words of Christ into an elitist salvation scheme.

Ya know, with all of his statements which amount to "You've got to think this way to be 'saved"", he's far more like a "gnostic" than are you and I have EVER demonstrated in any of our posts on these threads.

that's ironic coming from a gnostic whose been peddling his own "thinking" as a form of salvation.

And feel free to share any of "my" statements from the Bible.

Go similarly bray about those who covet or who take the lawd's name in vain. Then we won't take you for another homosexually obsessed closet case.
