Apr 27, 2009 | Posted by: SongBookz | Full story: news.yahoo.com

The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

Grandpa's opinion about the Bible is equally valid as anyone else's opinion.

There is no point in the NT. The NT is an insult to Hebrew Scripture.

Pascal's Wager. I don't know why people still bring that up. It's a false dichotomy. IOW, it presents only two possibilities, when there could be many more. What if you need to blow yourself up in a crowded marketplace to get into heaven? What if you have to dance naked under the light of the full moon then sacrifice a virgin? What if god only lets atheists into heaven because he can't stand sycophants?

The Bible foretold of the death of National Israel and its resurrection. It also warned of the eternal fire. National Israel is back.
The fall of a nation is one of those sure things, given enough time, in this case thousands of years. Kind of like the buy bull predicting famine and disease. And it predicted the Jews would return to Israel, but MOST Jews don't live there.
Try again.

You didn't read carefully. I asked:

Well, in that case, I'd get into heaven, and you wouldn't.

well I might have been frightened when they burned people alive for pointing out the hoax of Christianity that you are trying to defend, but now I just find it annoying and sad that barbarians like you have not yet evolved to the point of recognizing the absurdity of your situation.

Curse me all you want to bible thumper. Your religion is based on hate and your Jesus is false. This is well documented and can be examined and found to be so by anyone who wants to confirm all things as Jesus was alleged to have said.

You do know that the whole hellfire thing was used to replace the acceptance of reincarnation by the early church? This was done by Roman Emperor Justinian in the Sixth century over the objections of the Pope. You can read a little about it here on another thread:

http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/T4FIP9BUN...

You are defending a proven, well documented hoax of true Christianity with mean, arrogant, empty threats and no facts

wake up to reality:

1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

have a nice evening.

And you are still a child of Satan and Biblically illiterate. You can't prove otherwise because it's true.
I can and did prove my bible literacy. You refuse to see it or discuss any of the scriptures I have presented, or my reasons for rejecting Saul's writings that conflicts with what Jesus was alleged to have said and the subsequent evolution of Christianity into what it is today. All you do is curse my in the name of your false god, Saul of Tarsus.

Instead of annoying people here on topix why don't you go down to your local biker bar and announce in an angry and hateful voice to all present that they are going to burn in hell for their wicked ways and see how many converts you can make?

If there is a god who has a set of rules he wants us to obey, and who will torture us for all time if we don't obey them, why do we have to debate about them? Why aren't these things made clear to each of us? Seems only fair.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness ... since what may be known about God is plain to them .. because God has made it plain to them ... For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities .. his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen .. being understood from what has been made .. so that men are without excuse ... For although they knew [about] God .. they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him .. but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened ... Although they claimed to be wise .. they became fools ... and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles

men are without excuse .......... nuff said

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways .. BUT in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son .. whom he appointed heir of all things .. and through whom he made the universe ... The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the EXACT REPRESENTATION OF HIS BEING .. sustaining all things by his powerful word .. After he had provided purification for sins .. he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven .... Hebrews 1

Jesus wants us to know that this day is ahead and it will witness a great separation between those destined for "everlasting punishment" and those with the better destiny, "eternal life."
And in the record, what criteria did he say he would use?
