Well there are 29000 deities worshipped on this earth today. So that means my dunce pal that one group is right or none of them are. Throw that in with zero contact from the gods who only talk to people who ask you for money in gods name. He made the universe but just can't handle money. You need to rely on yourself not things that are as real as mother goose stories. You are a typical dope who really believes that something is controlling your life. You control your life not that nasty Satan or a false god.
Once again, for whatever reason you wish to expand the arguement beyond what I stated. You wish to bait me into some insane arguement about the exsistence of God, when it is quite obvious,as previously stated, if there isn't any, then 95% of the world's population has been duped! Oh, I do control my life, with the help of Jesus Christ, my lord and savior, and with his grace, will enjoy my eternal reward at his side. You apparently have nothing to look forward to but death, how hopeless!

That's "Many are CALLED..."
But I've yet to see that our soteriologies are in agreement.
Ours is that the way is SO simple and uncomplicated that few can actually get their heads around it. They themselves are too complicated as persons, with too many mental encrustations obstructing the purity and simplicity of the way.
You are right, I stand corrected, Many are called, few are chosen. Are you among the chosen, or those who were called?

You forgot the obvious third option here, that they just might all be right. After all, it's a big universe.

Bullshirt. It directly addresses the nonsensical structure of the question posed, and invites the question to correct/clarify.

Yes or no: Have you stopped beating your 2nd wife?

Is it? The question posed was simply reversed from the statement made. It is not difficult to understand or reply to. Kind of like yes or no, no clarification is required. Simple and uncomplicated!

For one who proclaims to keep things simple, pure and uncomplicated, you sure get hung up on a lot of different words/slants to words. So here you go, Are you one who was called and has answered the call to be one of the Chosen, or are you one who has decided you're smarter than those called and refuse to be chosen?

I was all ready to answer UNTIL you ascribed a motivation to the second answer.

C'mon!

In Court that would play, "Objection, Your Honor: Prejudicial and Badgering"

Nope. Rewrite the question into a form that I can, in good conscience, answer and I will.
