I'm with you, all these conversations get dulled down to the gay.

Sometime they might want to read the rest of the Book, or meet God for themselves and then see how much they hate.

God is never hated....

Does that explain why an avowed lesbian like yourself has such an obsession with me?
What will your pro-gay handlers at church do with you now?
Really Joe. I was thinking about just keeping you o ignore....but it is so much fun to poke you. And just like one of those clowns that you have as a kid, you beat them down and they pop back up for more.

How can you play the victim as an adult when you've been a bully since you were a kid?

Bully you say...a while back there was a Facebook question going around...if you saw my in the back of a police car, why would I be there? My mother got it right. She said that I would have beaten a bully down defending someone. So if you think my behavior is bullying, then you are indeed that bully...and I hope to "beat" you down on a daily basis. You are going to change...

Did you not have ANY toys growing up? Play with rocks and sticks or something? I thought every kid had one of the weighted blow up clowns to beat down. There is a lesson in that toy. NEVER GIVE UP BECAUSE YOUR OPPONENT WILL KEEP ON POPPING BACK UP!

And I will "beat" you down every time Joe...every time! I am not a quitter. I stand up for what I believe and what God has told me is true.

Not ones that I had to beat up!
You must still have a lot of unresolved aggression.

So who is off topic now, as usual - the 6 year old - joline.

LOL!

What an angry little man you are, you're mouth much drip of bitterness and yet you have the nerve to say you are somehow following Yeshua.

This is on of the reasons you are ALWAYS in our prayers.

Poor lonely man, trying having real relationships- with anyone.....

Fake Christians have already signed their death certificate, you are all just as dead as someone in the grave.
(Matthew 8:22) 22 Jesus said to him:“Keep following me, and let the dead bury their dead.”

(Matthew 10:38, 39) 38 And whoever does not accept his torture stake and follow after me is not worthy of me. 39 He that finds his soul will lose it, and he that loses his soul for my sake will find it.

That's probably true, Joe!

Because, if he were to hear [at least some of] your prayers, he'd probably TOAST you with a lightning bolt out of the clear blue sky right then and there.

So you DO consider yourself righteous. You're such a fraud, a poser. No one who is truly righteous would EVER boast about it. Once again you've shown your true colors. You really are the joke so many help to show you as.

No, but I am reckoned as such by believing Him who is righteous (see Romans 4).

I do, however, consider you to be foolish.

Reckoned by whom? Were you contacted directly? Wow! You really are special!! Lmao!!
And that last bit I consider a compliment, being as it came from you.

That would be by Whom, a nuance that was lost on you, as well as the obvious reference to Romans 4.

The "bolt out of the blue" is probably found in every cultural theology where thunderstorms occur.
