If my views are radical and not from God they are not christian. If my views are from God they may be radical but correct. It's not me who's right but God is right.I just try my limited carnal mortal best to agree with him. Although He corrects me often.


As do the rest of us.

Also Jesus and paul peter the other 12 except John were all hated and executed for being radicals. Do you want them to be silent as well.


Your talking about 2 different kinds of radicalism. The saints you mentioned were all radical in that they believed in jehovah in a way that most others didnt at the time. They didnt push it onto others though as you radicals are intent on doing. Please dont dishonor good people, even those of our past, with your narrow minded beliefs.

What is this about a second heaven ? I dont ever recall reading of a second heaven in the bible....a second comming maybe but not a second heaven. Also...if jehovah hates women so much then why would any woman in her right mind want to follow him ? As for these seeds you seem to have a problem with.....were you born of a woman or were you hatched ? As for astrology, well aint it ironic that in the bible, its siad that many wise men knew of christs comming birth because they paid attention to the signs in heaven or rather the stars and wasnt there supposedly a single star shining over bethlehem the night of jesus's birth ? Curiouser and curiouser said alice.
I know that Mormons believe in 3 Heavens, the Celestial Kingdom for good temple married Mormons, the Telestial Kingdom for the vast majority of other good people, and the Terrestial Kingdom for everyone else who hasn't committed an unforgivable sin.

Bill from norcross your claim is that you are christian. For arguement sake let's take your word for it that this is true. Please read acts chapter 4 at your next earliest convience. Please note after reading verses 17 and 18 quote niv But to stop thid thing from spreading any furthur amonst the people, we must warn these men to speak no longer to anyone in this name." Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied " judge for yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you rather than God." I say the same to you. please everyone give your life to christ. Your not born there you must make the choice. American citizenship does no more to make you christian than a bath can make a pig a poodle.


There are many ways to speak your faith and/or anything else. The most eloquint and effective that I have ever known is to speak what you believe by living it.....not by forcing it onto others. And this, I believe, is what the old time apostles did. They lived their faith. They didnt go about criticising or otherwise attacking those of a different faith and as for their supposed spoken words of exhortation in that example.....I believe that would be called making your case in court. Next round please.

I find myself agreeing with you, which may come as a surprise. I disagreed with you on another post before, but this is right on. I have seen through a friend's family what the wiccans have done to them...destroyed the family and messed up the children's minds bigtime.<quoted text>
Can you elaborate on this ? It doesnt sound like these people who hurt this family were true wiccans. True wiccans live by a simple rule which states "Do as you will with harm to none" The "harm to none" includes the practitioner as well.

Goodness! What is the difference between witchcraft and paganism? I think they are one and the same. You might as well not try to convince me otherwise. I have seen first-hand that they are. In one word:EVIL.<quoted text>


Your entitled to your beliefs hotsyflotsy and I have no intentions of trying to change them just as Im entitled to my belief that, overall, christianity is evil. I would like to know, however, if your belief that wicca/paganism is evil is based on personal experiance or on hear say. Please clarify what you mean by "seeing first hand".

Hey you parents and interested others do you see who and what favors this book. Their sometimes heated and passionate defense of the work proves my orginial point. They poured out in its defense for many believe it is their best chance in centuries to hurt as many children as possible.


Boy...time to go back out to the woodshed with you again. You lie and now your gonna get a whupping for it. We wiccans and pagans dont defend evil. If we did, we would be defending you and your words. We are, however, defending ourselves from your slander and your fellow bible thumper's attempts to censor what we read. Now, if in the course of doing this, we find ourselves having to correct your willfull misunderstanding of harry potter and/or any other book series then so be it but I'll tell you right now little boy.....if you gotta lie to sell your religion then it aint worth the having. Now....go to your room and pray for your evil god to strike me down as Im sure you will.

Absolutely the eyes and ears are the windows of the soul. And can fill the heart. That's probably what happened to many of you who became like you are. You probably started with Q boards and tarot cards or dungeon and dragons and seances and many other portals that gave access to evil to your souls.


Nope....actually I started out as a christian then woke up one day and got my head out of my ass. Thats how I got into wicca.

With you have you read the post, nobodies saying to ban HP, censorship in any form is a bad trend and leads to error. We just said it should not be in school and should be the choice and responsiblity of each individual parent. They force you and i alike to pay taxes so you and i alike should have the ability to say how those dollars are spent.


First it starts in the schools/bussinesses then it gets into the homes of others so dont sit there and lie about not wanting to censor. Thats about all you bible thumpers are for besides pushing your narrow views onto everybody else.

Some say narrow minded in my view point. I'm supposed to be narrow as well. Jesus said enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction. but small the gate and narrow the road that leads to life. And only a few find it. Jesus was not a ecuminical type of guy. He never said lets make a deal. He said this is the deal.. No man come to the Father except thru me. Either he is a true truthful witness and this statement is also true. Or he's a liar. there is no middle ground. That's why i urge plead beg encourage demand and any other action word for people to stop practicing idolatry in all its forms. Greed immorality paganism and any other system that sets itself up in opposition to God. HP cannot defeat God or any other literature. Or any other force or scheme on earth or under the earth. We the christians thru christ are concerned about you. The eternal battle for supremacy is already won. It was won by God before it started. Satan never stood a chance. But if Jesus is truthful, then those of you who donot have him are lost and without God in this world and the next. Please , fight me all you like. I got big shoulders. But please give your life to Jesus.


Boy...your full of it.

I saw the movie, wasn't even aware of it really. never thought about it. Definitely not on a witch hunt. Don't really believe their relevent in present world. Way bigger evils to fight. Would love to stop hunger and poverty and wars.(more important) The only witch hunting i'm willing to do is to find and implore and persuade to become a follower of the way. I think God has solution to every human issue. The answer is no, i do not see reason to ban narnia but i'm not an authority on it.
You are such a liar and a hypocrite.....Not on a witch hunt indeed. Youve been talking crap nonstop about us wiccans/pagans and you say your not on a witch hunt. Tsk tsk tsk. As for your supposed desire to want to stop wars, poverty and hunger, I doubt very seriously that your nearly as concerned with the doing of good deeds as you are of pushing your bible thumping ways down the throats of the "less fortunate".

Bill or anyone else do you think it good or wise to contradict Jesus. Do you think it's right in Gods sight to obey you rather than Jesus. Jesus said matt 28 18-22 to go into the whole world including the forum and make disciples of all men. So why is it wrong to speak to civic minded decent pagans and others about Jesus and persuade them to His way. Yes the orginial topic was opposition to HP for school children. But they as well as i have tried to explain each ones perspective and position.


Ha ha and ha. Your questions would presume that we believe in your god and/or acknowledge his authority over us which, generaly speaking, we pagans dont even believe in nor should it matter as to what we believe in since your beliefs are your right and choice. As for being outspoken about your beliefs, well, I dont make it a habit to go on forums or anywhere else and say "this is what I believe and you better believe it too". Why dont you just try living your beliefs instead of pushing them onto others ?

My scientific conclusion is complete.
I have concluded that religious radicals such as scott lack basic intellectual functions. They are closed minded individuals who believe they are right and never answer questions that disprove their belief.
My conclusion is.
Scott was dropped on his head as a baby, tried to commit suicide and failed miserable and as a result cut oxygen to his brain and now is brain damaged thus turned to religion or three: is a blatant idiot that no person on earth can equal.
either way: scott is a waste of space.
