Jesus has nothing to do with it. He's been pretty much pushed out of the religion. He's not even invited to his own birthday party any more.
Well said.

I said if you (redick) believe your God has limited powers, then this God thing (That he believes in) could NOT create something as complex as the universe.
That's even worse logic.

If a god with limited powers could not create the universe, then your claim is that something with unlimited powers is required to create it.

But there is nothing known with unlimited powers.

So there is no universe.

That's great, Burnt Baboon!

Bwahahahahahahahahahahhaahhahh ahahha, Berp.

Neither Eagle nor Riverside Redneck bother me like they do you.
I'll bet that you can guess which poster gets my vote for being the most empty and pretentious. It's not Buck, who is a trifle pretentious, but not empty.
At least Buck isn't boring.

He is trying to use the "They aren't Real Christians" crap again.

Depending on the needed argument by Christians, there are either 2 Billion Christians or just one.

Except when they brainwash children into it.

It wasn't a language. It was nonsense syllables.

BTW, the venomous snakes they use are not usually deadly to adults and each bite increases a human's resistance. Also, many of the snakes used are starving and die in captivity. Not much venom from a half dead snake.
That's more reliable protection than faith.

Jesus wasn't even a Christian.

If he were here today, he'd walk in one of the churches and give them a cussin'.

Typically, you are wrong. Check day for me is the third Wednesday of the month.

No, don't think so.

Not syllables, but combined word fragments.

Are you saying that you visit Christian households on Christmas and see no sighs of thanking Jesus or celebrating Jesus' birthday?

That can't be so.

In my household, we always give thanks to Jesus and wish Him another happy birthday.

I don't worship the god you describe.
You are confused.
Sure you do, you are the one that said your God has limits, hence he is not omnipotent. Is your God all powerful or not? You seem to be the one confused. Either the God you worship is omnipotent or he isn't, which is it?

Maybe.

Because they're so obviously non-Christian.

I know you want Christians to be hateful.

Maybe some of them are you masquerading as a Christian, to further denigrate Christianity.

hmmm

Are you a poe?
