The mind of God is revealed in the Holy Bible by His Holy Spirit. Not only His mind but His will also. His will is that you come out from amongst the lost and be found in Christ on Judgment day. Jessica when you write things like this it really reflects on whether you have the mind of Christ.

Didn't John McGlone say he was leaving this thread?
He must be a liar as well as a blasphemer.
I did leave with no intention of returning. But so many were asking why I left without answering their questions and accusing me falsely, that I had to return to answer these detractors of the gospel of Jesus Christ, of which you have been the chief.

I have not lied, and can you define 'blasphemy' according to the Bible please?

Again, you judge unrighteously. John 7:24

all that you say is only what you believe. that does not make it correct. if you want to live by another's rules and regulations that is your choice. jesus, if he was real, was only a prophet. his soul is no better than yours or mine. you are not "lost" and neither is anyone else. there is no need to make up and follow a bunch of man made books. look deep into your heart if you want to know god. it doesn't matter if you have the mind of christ, use your own. "if you can believe that the soul of adolf hitler is back with god, then you are on your way to understanding the true nature of god". that, of course is my opinion, and no better or worse than yours. but any belief that does not respect the sanctity and divineness of all, well, something is wrong there, somewhere.

HIS will does not come from YOU, Mr. McGlone. Claiming to know what His judgement will be for a given person and claiming to know the Mind of Christ concerning them only makes you a liar.

Typical xian --- confusing myth with history.
To us who respect history as a disciplined field of inquiry, it raises serious questions that no one ever wrote anything about Jesus until decades after he is alleged to have died. And all of those writings are compiled in a holy book. None of the other writings written after Jesus's death are accepted as genuine.
I guess you will not accept any bio on Julius Julius Caesar because they were not written during his lifetime? Or his book, Gallic Wars which I read in High School and used by the military is not accurate becasue the earlies copy is 100's of years after Julius? And it is a fact that the NT was written within 60 years of Jesus death with the earliest mansuscript fragement found in Egypt is dated 125AD? Have you really studied Biblical Criticsm, Textual Criticsm, and the history of the Bible?

I do use my own mind to love God supremely and then love the mockers of Christ despite what they rant about.

You are right you can choose anything to believe in you want for now. God has given a freewill to every person. But, on Judgment day you will not enter His Kingdom but the place of torment stored up for you for your ignorance and neglect of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible says in 2 Peter that you are willfully ignorant. That is another way of saying, dumb on purpose. Repent and believe Jesus, He died to cleanse you.

How do you prove that? Stop judging me and lying about me, hypocrite!

You need to read your Bible! This is an emergency.

Please read the whole book of 2 Peter and then 1 Peter. Repent or Perish!

Your screen name says it all about you. The Bible says that God will judge liars, stop lying. Try capitalizing Jesus' Name it is the name above every name. The only Name through which men can be saved. Repent or Perish!

I would like to report to the readers of this thread that Pinpoint Evangelism appeared at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC today, 21 November, 2008. I had never heard of their outfit before, but I've been doing some research on them this afternoon, and it seems that it was pretty much the same old story. They stood on a public stage on campus, and they denounced those before them as sinners, fornicators, liars, and wicked people in general merely due to their social/religious beliefs. On the list were Roman Catholics, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jehova's Witnesses (it's interesting that Pinpoint Evangelism would set themselves above Jehova's Witnesses. This demonstration was held, with a permit, on the USC campus in the middle of a school day. It is my position, along with other members of a group that we are now forming, that it was a violation of the rights of the students of the University of South Carolina for Pinpoint Evangelism to have been issued a permit to speak at that location. USC boasts a diverse student body. They have students of diverse religious beliefs, including the lack thereof. These students (or their parents) pay a lot of money for them to be able to seek a university education. It is not proper for those students to be confronted with slander as a result of their differing social/religious persuasions. We understand that there is a freedom of speech ammendment in our Constitution, but we also understand that there are civil laws against public slander. For a university that prides itself on its diverse student body, and that wishes to maintain that, to allow their students to be forced to encounter such unfounded verbal attacks as are perpetrated by Pinpoint Evangelism is an outrage. Words are very powerful, and word-of-mouth is also very powerful. If the University of South Carolina wishes to establish itself as a school that does not encourage students of diverse backgrounds to enroll themselves there, they are free to do so, but it will come at a heavy price. It is unacceptable for the rights of students to be ignored as they have been today, and it is our goal to see to it that it does not happen again. If it does, we will be faced with the unfortunate reality of having to seek cessation and reconciliation through civil suits against Pinpoint Evangelism for the public slandering of students of the University of South Carolina, and against the University of South Carolina for the the violation of the rights of their students.

Pinpoint Evangelism also appeared at Middle Tennessee State University. I was not there that day, but I have been researching an incident that happened on campus between John McGlone and a female social work student, in which she was arrested for pushing him after he allegedly sexually abused her by repeatedly thrusting his elbow into her breast. None of the videos I have seen show the incident, including the hour and a half long video his associate posted of them "proselytizing" to the students (which was essentially telling people that met the criterion on the signs that they were wicked and going to hell, amidst turning away questions and students that wished to read bible passages).
I must say, while viewing this particular video, I noticed that, between bouts of insisting that people are not born homosexual, denying original sin, and deeming females at least partially responsible for rape due to their manner of dress (yes, I watched that particular part repeatedly, as he intended by repeating it), his associate spoke of an intrinsic morality that exists regardless of the knowledge of God or the Bible.
I would like to ask you, sir, if my intrinsic morality when faced with preaching of hatred and prejudice towards African Americans while in Sunday School class at the age of six would qualify as God speaking to me. If it is, and I still get the same feeling when faced with any form of prejudice from anyone claiming to be religious, does that mean that God is telling us different things?
