I am so sorry. That had to suck.

so you never knew Christ which means you never were a Christian. You have done nothing wrong? Wow...Angel is a perfect person and has never done anything wrong. You honestly believe that?

LOL! Do you really think that you have to be a devout Christian in order to be accepted into Heaven?

Point, Game, Match!

Devil Wins. Wasn't even close.

You might want to check what the Bible actually says before you condemn over 3/4 of the world to Hell.

I can't believe you think God is so stupid, to allow himself such a disadvantage.

Angel doesn't need forgiveness because she has never done anything wrong.

so what........How many times do I have to tell you this. There is nothing Free about the way atheists think. You all say THE EXACT SAME THINGS. Atheism has become your religion.

LOL! And because you choose to continue to JUDGE, even when the BIBLE tells you that GOD is the only one that has the right to JUDGE, proves you must think your GOD.

I will have to do some research, you might be entitled to a free pass to Heaven, because of your claims of being mentally ill.

That's strange!

When I Goggled insanity in the bible, Mathew 7:1-29 surfaced.

Do you think it could be a sign from God?

Maybe it's God's way of saying mental illness is not the issue.

What do you think Antiatheist? Are you mentally ill, or just judgmental?

And you think you don't judge? YOU have been judging me for months now. Besides, Jesus himself judged peoples actions all the time. People get judged in America every single day. We judge murderers, rapists, child molesters, etc. You don't think you judge those actions? Your wrong. The problem is YOU don't like being judged.

I Claim to be a CHRISTIAN, when a claim be a CHRISTIAN it doesn't allow me the privilege to claim I'm perfect. So if I have inadvertently judged you, I'm sorry, I'm a CHRISTIAN, I'm not perfect.

But, I don't believe that I have judged you. I've asked you questions and I've asked you to explain your reasoning. That's not judging.

When YOU choose to avoid questions about YOUR proclamations, it is human nature for someone to assume the answer, based upon what YOU have, or have not said.

Ha........you haven't judged me? Of course you have. As I said, we judge behavior every single day. If someone abuses a child are you telling me you aren't going to judge that behavior? Give me a break.

Nightserf.........anyone that has asked Christ for forgiveness and accepted Him as their savior is a Christian regardless of denomination, etc. Its not about being "religious" or how charitable a person is.
But what I asked was how you define the word "religious" in the context of the above discussion.

How about this; you breed contention, you thrive in rivalry, you judge others, incite hateful works, basically you do many of the things the bible tells you not to do, yet you brag about your Christianity. That is called hypocrisy . Did Jesus not say many will come in my name and yet he will say get away I never knew you?
Maybe your time would be better spent reading your bible and making even a lame attempt to do as it says you must do to be a Christian, and less time on the trolling internet looking for trouble and someone to release your hate onto. Spend more time perfecting your Christianity and less time defiling it.

anyone can be religious about anything. Atheists are religious. Religion and being a Christian really aren't even the same thing.

The judging that is under discussion is not the day to day judgment of a situation but the judgment to life or death according to your God.

You don't have anything of substance to counter with so you want to start with the petty meanings of words that have no bearing on the conversation. This is usually what happens when someone starts spouting off and then cannot hold their own later.

That's not a definition. Please provide your definition of the word "religious" in the context of your posts on this thread.

Sorry to post like a broken record, but until I know how you define "religious," I can't know what you mean about any of the above. the dictionary definitions don't fit, but the meanings of all words vary with context and usage. my purpose isn't to argue that your definition is wrong Others will undoubtedly do that--it's impossible to make any assertion on Topix without being challenged on it. I just want to know what you mean in the various posts where you use the word.

Me too. That was the only thing in my life that I regarded as child abuse.

Abuse of someone can be subjective. So I have to say, your analogy is to vague to be answered.

But I will try to answer your question with more clarity added.

If someone was to beat a child to death, and I voiced my displeasure towards that act, I wouldn't be judging the person that committed the act. I would be condemning the act (or sin) that was committed.

The Bible says anyone (it doesn't specify just Christians) has every right to do so.

The term broken record is antiquated. You might want to use closed loop for the younger generation.

My kids would think you were referring to obtaining a goal.

Enjoy your posts, especially late night when sleep is hard to come by.
