Liar. Here's what you wrote only three days ago:

" ... Jesus Christ, who IS the Messiah, and that whosoever believes in Him, and is baptized, SHALL BE SAVED and have everlasting life with Him in Heaven. And that whosoever chooses NOT to believe in Him, shall be damned to Hell forever. That is my personal belief that I TRULY believe in."

Evidently you can't even keep your story straight from one day to the next! Is anyone who disagrees with your mythology damned to Hell forever or not??

<quoted text>It is a word I am careful to always spell correctly, but even so, I consulted 2 dictionaries before making that post, and both say it is spelled "judgment". And I have never seen the word in a book, magazine, or other professiionally-produced manuscript spelled "judgement'. That word is a misspelling.
EXCUSE ME !!! Don't tell me that !!! It has both spellings in there Stupid..You are Dillusional..

Two christians fighting over the spelling of a word. Why don't you take your fight elsewhere and leave the rest of us in peace. We have no interest in your judgment day, nor in the hateful genocide committed by your god(s) according to the mythological Biblical record. You have the nerve to accuse non-christians of being intolerant while comdemning them to Hell for not believing as you do!! If that's not the epitome of hypocrisy I don't know what is!
WHEW !!!! You poor pitiful thing...but that's the way it is with some people ... They are unhappy...mean ... Poor You :(:(:(

A. You're wrong.

B. Please look up the correct spelling of your last word.

C. Study your 3rd grade spelling book again.

Christians, including myself, do not condemn anyone to Hell. That is solely up to Yahweh, who is The Creator of All Things.

And now you're going to tell me christians don't personally comdemn others. But your god takes care of the nastier aspects -- and obviously with your approval, else you would not believe in it so TRULY.

And you know what? That damnation of others shows in christians' whole attitude towards other people. It shows clearly in most of your posts, Daniel, Frank, Foxy or whoever you are. For all your sanctimoniousness, it comes very easily to you to pronounce others PURE EVIL, people you don't even know personally. It is the prevailing christian attitude towards the rest of humanity. An arrogance that says, I'm right and you are all wrong.

<quoted text>That's not a nice thing to say. Like millions of Americans, I'm a church-going Christian and I take my Faith seriously. And one of teh bedrock principles our nation was founded is Freedom Of Relion which is EXACTLY WHY it is enshrined in our Bill Of Rights.

So many of you socilaist dems and libs are so damn hypocritical as you are always yelling about "tolerance" EXCEPT when it comes to peple of Faith such as myself.

And being gay AND being religious are NOT mutually exclusive as some of you idiots here believe. You people are really a disgrace and proud of your hypocrisy !
You are wrong when you say Democrats can't be Christians and if you believe that then you need to question yourself...I don't believe in gay marriage but I saw so much wrong with the other side ...all the lying and bragging behind closed doors...they are far from being what they pretend to be !!!!!

And for the record, 740democrat is NOT wrong on the spelling of judgment/judgement. Here is an excerpt from the Oxford English Dictionary:

"judgement ... n. Also (the usual form in legal use)-dgm-. ME [(O)Fr. jugement, f. juger. see JUDGE v.,-MENT 1 The action of trying a cause in a court of justice; trial. Now rare. ME. 2 In full Last Judgement. In some faiths: the judgement of humankind by God expected to take place at the end of the world,..."

Once again you pronounced someone else wrong while you yourself had the facts wrong. If you could be so certain and so WRONG on the subject of a currently available dictionary, imagine how wrong you could be on the subject of 3,000 year old mythological writings!

So if I have the facts wrong, why don't you point them out to me instead of using punctuation marks as sarcasm? And how would you know whether I'm unhappy -- you don't even know me personally. I would say the one condemning the rest of humanity to Hell must be the unhappy person.
