You people are SOooooo....boring. All these threads/forums amount to is back and forth bickering between a handful of the same people day after day, month after month and in some cases(Dan the man), year after year.

You folks really need to get a life.

I have had my fill of these silly back and forth finger pointing with people that have no life other then topix.

Life is way too short and I have no plans of wasting it on some stupid hick town forum with the same "I don't have a life" posters. Dan the man in particular. The poor sap thinks it's some sort of Dan The Man Derangement Syndrome, when it's pointed out that he's a liar and a loser and a multiple personality poster. Hey Dan get over yourself and get a life, you and your multiple personalites. How in God's name can you spend day after day here is beyond me. You obviously are alone, and are not employed.

Anyone that spends all day here has a very boring,lonely, empty life.

With that said, I do hope all have good heatlth, happiness, and love in your life.(A liberal would never say that, they are too full of hate, selfishness and intolerance ).

Educate yourself, Dan. Eastern Orthodox Christianity is not the same as Coptic Christians, even though they are considerd Orthodox. It would be like me calling a Methodist a Baptist, both Protestants but yet not the same.

For someone that says he studied the Bible you appear to be ignorant of the Orthodox, which by the way was the first Church, the Church that started it all......Acts 11:26

The Orthodox Church in Chambersburg is Antiochian Orthodox. It's roots are in Antioch, Syria.

Next time you ask a stupid question like.."are you a Coptic Christian", do some research so you know what you are talking about...otherwise you just look like a clueless idiot....so what else is new.

Have fun spending day in and day out here....me, I have better things to do!

If I had a dollar for every time the dipshit from Chambersburg claimed she was leaving Topix because everyone here is a no-life loser and she's better than all of us, I could retire.

And if I had another dollar for every time she reneged on that threat/promise, I could pay for my kids' college educations.

The fact that the apostle Peter was married is evidence enough that marriage is an honorable estate.
The Apostle Paul, whose attributed letters make up the majority of the New Testament and who had evidently been married and was a widower at the time of his writings, said it was just the next best thing to hell. Also got a history lesson for you. Marriage wasn't even a required sacrament from the Church until the 16th Century. The only blessing you needed from the Church was for your betrothal, they forgave a couple in advance for committing the sin of fornication for strictly procreative purposes. Marriage was left to whatever the local law allowed and from the Church it was strictly optional if you wanted their blessing or not. Requiring the Church's blessing for a marriage was one of the issues involved in the Protestant Reformation. Many of the early Puritan Churches wouldn't even develop a rite for one for decades or longer. The Puritans outright forbade Church weddings, even for non-Puritans, when they still ran the show in Massachusetts.

He had been asked about a divorce dear, of course he's going to talk about the marriage. Did you know that he goes on to pretty much forbid them, divorces that is? Jesus never said that we were supposed to keep our legs crossed for him, that was Paul's invention.

You have children? I'm surprised any woman would sleep with you.

You say paul was "evidently" married. There is no proof or even a suggestion in scripture that he was married. But even if he was it makes no difference. It matters not what the puritans did. What matters is what scripture says be it jesus paul james luke peter etc who said it.

And your placing marriage just on this side of hell shows your biblical immaturity. Try buying a good commentary. You're a perfect example of the scripture that says we should study to show yourself approved having no reason to be ashamed. Dan the man child would do well to follow the same advice.

LOL! Qwerty's been lurking!

Of course Qwerty's the one who REALLY knows who Jim is in the real world. I just figured it out from the clues Qwerty left.

Qwerty wrote:
to jtb
This is what I know.
I know you are not Jerry the singer. Until this week I only knew that you LEFT the Mennonite church. You are the one who now is saying you were kicked out. That's new information to me.
I know that your last name is pronounced the same as a character from Jungle Book.
I know that there is no Christ like attitude in you.
I know you delight in attacking genuine Christians, although sadly for you, your limited brain power and overinflated self image prevent you from knowing when you are making a fool of yourself.
I know that reading what you post is a waste of time.
And that's enough for me. Be gone from here.
Then old Jim quickly changed the subject, ignoring Qwerty's post completely.

This is also a HILARIOUS exchange:

Isn't if fun reminiscing about the old days? Ahhh, good times, good times.

LMAO!

Oh ye of little faith: http://www.dennyburk.com/was-the-apostle-paul...
jtb_hypocrite wrote:

On the contrary, it was Paul's opinion which won over Christian thought on the matter for the next 1500 years. Marriage was not required by the Church, you did however need their blessing to fornicate for procreative purposes only. Marriage didn't even become the next best thing to damnation, your betrothal accomplished that.
jtb_hypocrite wrote:

Actually it does, dear. You are the one screaming keep your damned hands off the sacred institution of marriage and I was merely pointing out how short that line actually is. But let's refocus on the central theme of Christianity, all sex is sinful.
jtb_hypocrite wrote:

Scripture can be said to say all sorts of things and not all of them most Christians want to continue to agree with. For instance, the New Testament treats slavery as perfectly acceptable, when done right.
jtb_hypocrite wrote:
And your placing marriage just on this side of hell shows your biblical immaturity.
If that's what you want to believe dear, that's your problem, not mine. I see it as demonstrating my ability to read scripture in context and not merely bits and pieces. Paul says that for those unmarried and no longer married, keeping your legs permanently crossed in the name of Jesus is your highest calling, marriage is nothing more than a fallback to save you from damnation for your sins of the flesh. You can't be an actual member of the Catholic Church's family of fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters if you are married. That should tell you marriage's place. You failed.
jtb_hypocrite wrote:

I've read several dear.

Clearly you have learned the wrong lesson in all that alleged study dear, you have a lot to be ashamed of.
