Gays here demonstrate their 'intelligence'. Name callers. Over and over. That's all you have to offer.
WOW! Talk about hypocrisy!

You've spent a month declaring that all gays are going to hell because they are sinners and abominations and yet you have the gall to complain that those same people are calling you a bigot.

LOL.

If your criteria for realness is whether or not someone in some religion claimed it to be real, then there are THOUSANDS of alternatives to your personal belief all of which are just as valid.

Then I'm at least as well off as you. At least I have a possibility of salvation.

Perhaps, you did not know that I do not subscribe to any religious beliefs.
At any rate, what does “only BEGOTTEN son” mean to you, if you do not mind my asking?
The same as the word beget means in Genesis...

It means to me..that every other creation was created THROUGH the Son....but the SON, come out direct from the Father, no intermediary

FIRST BORN in everything...

I suspect that is why you threw the trinity in as a curved ball..

to

'divide and conquer'

because if you can divide Christians in a trinity debate you can get them fighting between themselves and not as we all are in agreement that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination to God.

You're wrong.

There may be an afterlife where biblical literalists are not well treated but everyone else is, including Atheists.

I can't disprove that.

You can't disprove that.

My observation is this is hard to do because of our baser nature and need for attention. We try to exalt ourselves at the expense of others. The analogy I liken this to is that in a crowd of people, when we wish to be "seen" we must "step on" the shoulders of another, thus pushing that person down so we can be "seen." If in a virtual crowd, such as Topix, we put others down in order to bring attention to ourselves.....to distinguish ourselves from the crowd so to speak.
It is completely unBiblical, but it is part of most of our natures to some degree or another. No glory goes to God when we disobey God, even when our disobedience is a misguided attempt to bring others to God.
God bless you and yours.
True ..we are all probably guilty ..thank God that he is gracious and forgives us..it part and parcel of being a disciple of Christ..learning to discipline our tongue .." a man who can tame his tongue is a perfect man' says James.

Your foray into logic failed, so you've defaulted into retard mode.

Mentals and Poes are so predictable.

Nope.

"he who does not believe will be condemned."

Mark 16:16 (NKJV)
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

Revelation 20:15 (NKJV)
15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Nope.
God can and does grant salvation to any soul He sees as worthy of it.

And, God does not need a Bible as a guideline in His Judgments either.
He can do better.
He can see your soul.

I get it. You pick the parts of the Bible you like and reject the rest. Thereby creating your own personal god to please you. That won't work well on Judgment Day.

Revelation 22:19 (NKJV)
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

That means eternity in Hell fire.

You are using "Pascal's Wager" which is a well known logical failure.

You are assuming that by picking a religion you have a better chance at salvation than not picking one.

However, with 15,000 religions in the world, you are MUCH more likely to pick the wrong one than the right one.

AND, you didn't even pick your religion. You were assigned a religion by your mother.

AND, you are assuming that not picking a religion is as bad as picking the wrong one.

I put to you that it makes more sense that you put this argument before Odin when you die, "I didn't know that Norse was the correct religion, but at least I didn't worship some other make believe god."

As opposed to, "Oops, sorry Odin. I spent my whole life worshiping a Jewish Wizard instead of you."

God called you "ignorant".

"the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord"

1 Corinthians 14:37-38 (NKJV)
37 If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant.

The fact is, I'm at least as well of as you even if I'm wrong. If you are wrong you will burn forever. I can't lose. You can.
