G_O_D is one of those narcissists who demands to be believed, he demands our validation, and if he doesn’t get it he turns hateful. He really does suffer from a god complex, hence his choice of screen name. He has convinced himself that he is an authority–or maybe even *the final* authority–on everything on Topix, from religion and the bible to egg-candling & beyond, and no one is allowed to disagree with him. No one. He even attacks Xcntrik and Hip Gnosis–the two nicest, mellowest (and in my opinion two of the smartest) people in the Topix universe–with personal insults whenever they dare to correct him.
G_O_D is a hateful, arrogant and paranoid sewer-dwelling bottom feeder. If two people notice and similarly comment upon his obvious bullshit, he sees them as forming an alliance against him–“taking sides,” as he calls it (“They’re all ganging up on me! Waaahhh!”)–and then attempts to drive wedges between them by openly lying about them, or accuses them of being “sock puppets.” He has accused me of being “Huh,”“A Former Liberal,”“Cyberkid44,”“Annie J,”“Water Nymph,”“Some Stoner Dude,” and I forget how many others who have noticed the same crap that he spews, and who have similarly commented on it; he even began to suspect that I was Epiphany, fer chrissakes..
What can I say? Great minds think alike.:-)
He thinks he’s faultless; it’s part of his god complex. And he’s decided he wants to have a personal ax to grind with me. He is *so desperate* to take away my beliefs, and he can’t–and that is what further drives his rage against me. I’m stronger in my faith than he will *ever* be in his. As much as he denies it, I am convinced that he’s a fundie christian who will say *anything* to “win the argument.” I think he’ll even go so far as to deny his own savior here for the purpose of “winning,” and then later go crawling back to beg his “savior” to forgive him, the way all the other fundies do to excuse their own hate and hypocrisy and lies (“I’m doing it for *you,* Lord; I’m doing **everything for you!**”).
He’s no better than that hate-spewing fundie “Just Results/Viking.”
I think what pisses him off the most as a fundie is that I’m a self-admitted, ninth generation Italian witch from the old school, and there is *nothing* that fundies hate more than witches. There’s nothing special about it, it’s just something that I once mentioned in passing, and he jumped all over it like white on rice. My family’s tradition goes back eight generations, and is based on ancient Etruscan beliefs; there’s nothing special about that, either, yet he chooses to take offense at it. He wants to attack me personally for it. He needs to drag it down, tear it apart, and he won’t say why; he even needs to drag my family into it. I think it’s because I *know* where I come from, I *know* my beliefs are valid for me, and I don’t need his or anyone else’s validation, while he has no fucking idea of where he came from.
I think he sees me as a threat. I *know* he hates strong women, as has been seen by how he treated W_N and Annie J; and I think he hates women who exercise their own freedom. He has repeatedly shown himself to be a full-blown misogynist.
He seems to spend his entire Topix life desperately trying to convince himself that he is right about everything. In his attempts to convince us all of how “smart” he is, he even felt it necessary to post some phony certifications as “proof.”**To a bunch of anonymous Topix posters!** People who have no friggin’ idea of who he is, or even care. I mean, my god–how friggin’ pathetic is *that*?? It’s like he’s sitting there screaming at his computer,“God damn you all, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE ME!!”

<quoted text>
Annie the post you left in here a couple weeks ago"

***

I couldn't find your original post...

I intentionally left your name out of the post that I wrote to shrinky...felt there was no need to get into any lengthy discussion.

My post a couple of weeks ago to Steve was concerning OSAS and my thoughts on it and an example of why I believe it to be dangerous to some Christians. I am not in a habit of bring posts from other threads here but those two posts fairly well eplained my thoughts.

Double standard...

I didn't set the double standard John...Christians do that when they profess their belief. Your Bible does when you say that you believe it in its entirety.

Do I approve of Kaitlyn's language...not in the least bit...she is also aware that I do not. I believe that she is very capable of expressing her thoughts without the use of that type of language. She is aware of my thoughts on this because I have told her those thoughts.

There is a big difference between Kaitlyn and the author of those posts...she does not profess to be "once saved always saved". The author of those posts does...his claim is that Jesus know his heart and his mind so he is not worried about what he posts on Topix.

Kaitlyn also does not post here as a representative of God...her language is not said with the claim..."in the name of God". That is not an excuse for her posts but I think that it is a valid point.

I felt as if you were quick to throw her under the bus in order to avoid the point that I was making in my post to Steve. She had nothing to do with any of it yet quickly became the subject of a conversation among some of you.

I don't remember everything that I said in that post. I do recall however expressing my thoughts on a god existing that would just turn a deaf ear to the type of behavior expressed by that poster.

You might say that he is not "saved"...he claims that he is. Not you nor no one else can decide that. He thinks that he is the real deal...he believes that God will over look his behavior because he is "saved".

That was my point to Steve...it was also was troubling me at the time. You might want to consider it complaining...whatever...but it was I felt a defining moment for me in my own faith. I won't get in to that however.

Do I place high expectations on Christians...yes...but no more than I placed on myself when I was following the Christian faith. Obviously I felt as if I failed...thus I walked away.

As far as the rest of your post John...you may think what you wish of me...I am okay with that. I have my faults and I am well aware of them. I do think however that instead of you reading what I wrote that day you looked for my faults.

As far as your thoughts on WINLAC...I have posted there and here...double standards apply on both threads IMO. WINLAC gets to be more than I can deal with at times so I leave for a while. So does this thread...so I take a break.

The Christians on this thread might not use the language that you will read on WINLAC but IMO what has been said to each other here is far worse. When posters begin judging the salvation of their fellow Christians...throwing innuendos around about the validity of other peoples faith...personally I think that is a far bigger offense than some four letter words.

That is just my opinion however...

John...I won't get in to a long drawn out conversation on this...I have really nothing else to say on it...so...

Glad to read that you are doing well after your implant and hope that you continue to make progress.

Lip service. You couldn't even get through one sentence without berating humanity again, could you? You've been steeping in this negativity for so long that it appears to be an ineluctable state of mind for you now.

And there it is again - your deep and abiding anti-humanism and misanthropy. It's all about failure and dependency with you, which is used to make you believe that you need the help of a god.

BTW "starlight" is NOT the reflection of the sun off their surface...any grade school student understands that simple fact.
Genesis 1:26 Then God said,Let us make man in Our Image. according to our likeness and let them rule over the fish of the sea aand over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
I stand corrected Sir;

Only a opinion here for ya.Society and humanity are some very sick puppies in today's written pages of history.

Starlight;Sciences says it is not the reflection of the sun.
The spirit says differently.Thank you I just follow the spirit not mankind.

But, He hasn't walked away from you:)

And truly, one cannot 'follow' the "Christian faith", but live it.

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."(John 13:34,35)

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.

"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[b] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."(Matt.5:13-16 ~ context toward Israel but I post for general application:)

You have a Great Day ,Annie...
