Bigot : Dictionary "One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ." You are intolerant, therefore you are a bigot!

Your god is a bigot by this definition. It defines an in-group and tortures the rest.

Praise God in His infinite wisdom! Otherwise I'd have to spend eternity with hate mongers instead of wonderful, loving people who care about something other than themselves.
But will they be with wonderful, loving people? Are you planning to call the other souls in heaven liars like you do down here?

And what makes you think that you're entitled to a place in heaven given your wrath? You make a liar of your god and a mockery of his promises with your recent outbursts. You seem to assume that you will be forgiven for those posts. Why?

If so, you are an example of what I have been calling Christian forgiveness on demand - the cheap type of self-forgiveness permitted by Christian doctrine for people too cowardly to take responsibility their offenses and injuries.
Juicylu wrote:
This is another odd post coming from you btw. Now you're calling God names, a God you don't believe exists, do you often call 'imaginary entities' names? Or was that yet another insult?
Who did I insult? You?

Blasphemy is a victimless crime.

4 Bible Scripture on headband

#487356 Feb 12, 2013
Apostle Peter: "For they mouth empty, boastful words and, BY APPEALING TO the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error.

They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ AND ARE AGAIN ENTANGLED in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true:“A dog returns to its vomit,”

Hmmm. Washington D.C. area used to be Rome, Maryland... with 7 known hills in that area.

Capitol Hill, Meridian Hill, Floral Hills, Forest Hills, Hillbrook, Hillcrest, and Knox Hill?

Wrong answer.

I'll let your fellow Christians explain why.

Do you remember your words about Christian forgiveness and love? I do. Here they are, with my reply :

Hello Epi

Encourage words!

Trying thinking for yourself, I know you can do it your GOD expects you to.

Is a link to you repeating yourself supposed to be evidence of something?
Yes. It's evidence of what I actually posted, something you don't feel the need to provide.

And it's evidence that our values just aren't the same. But then I haven't spent as much time in the church as you have.

Does it matter?
I don't know, does it affect your beliefs? Do you think that saying what is written in the Bible is a myth affects my beliefs? If it doesn't matter then why continue this charade?

<quoted text>Yes, I've come across gnosticism lol... I believe that those gnostic gospels (Gospel of Judas, thomas and the like) were fabricated by various gnostic sects. JMO.

Simon Magus (who was a Sorcerer who supposedly got saved... found in Acts) is credited with being the father of those particular gnostic sects...

If you truthful knew you would not have to even ask,why should anyone fear someone who loves him.
To the law and to the testimony if they speak not according to this word it is because there is no light in them.Isaiah 8:20
Now please tell me you do not understand this either.
.. rather than explain, this scripture separates, so, OK, I'll say it, "I don't understand." ..

.. a wise parent teaches and commands respect void of threats or condemnation ..

.. if you know somebody loves you, you trust, not fear, them. If you met Jesus tomorrow, would you fear or trust him ??..

Not at all.
I have total respect for anybody's personal religious beliefs, and also their practices as long as they don't intrude on others.
My objection is not to personal religious beliefs and practices.
It's the intrusion of religion into the public arena that concerns me.
And the posters I am addressing, are the ones who want to foist their religion on others. I find this to be despicable, and I will continue to assert my view.
Sometimes, humor is an effective tool.
At other times, a frontal attack is required.
Religion should be a personal thing.
It shouldn't be flung around to those who may be unwilling to listen to it.
Just like a boom box in public.
It's not appropriate.

...if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful natured and despise authority...."
Funny Quin!
If "Lot" was righteous then we all get in.

If you read the "story" correctly "Lot" wanted to act out his perversion in private. His "childrens",children never accepted the "GOD-concept".

Juicylu wrote, "If I do decide to insult you ..."

You already have. You called me a liar.

Juicylu wrote, " ... it will be very much deserved ...."

That remains to be seen. I've asked you to provide your evidence defending your allegations about me. Have you done it? Will I find your demonstration that I am a liar between the post I'm answering and the one I'm writing now, or will you just call me more names?

And what have I said to you that even comes close to that? I've said that you're quick to anger and that I'm not going to make the effort to coddle you any longer. I criticized a rebuttal of yours by saying that it was nothing more than a "Nuh-uh." I teased you about "lmcao." I pointed out a gratuitous insult of yours. Where is the assault on your character?

Where did I call you a liar or anything else like that, such as a thief, or a pervert? I didn't, did I?

You were the one who crossed that line.

Juicylu wrote, "... it won't be name calling"

I think that that ship has already sailed.

Juicylu wrote, " Yes it will be fun for me as well."

You're a lot angrier than you let on.
Lol... Proof? Read your posts. If you lie I have to point it out, we can't have hypocrisy now can we? If you feel insulted maybe you could stop lying? Just a thought. Assume away, I sit here laughing, it's better than TV... Lol... You telling me I'm angry, that's just awesome! Hahahahaha...

You have posted that you believe the 4 canonical gospels and yet you also believe the gospel of Thomas. Either the 4 were lying or
Thomas was because they depict two very different Jesus teachings and personalities.
GoThomas: Jesus said: "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

.. rather than telling people what to believe, this verse challenges mankind to discover what lies within ..

.. when the New Testament was assembled, conformity to doctrine was essential. Any gospel that refuted the church's position (dogma) was not included ..

For the professing wanna-be christians:

The good book states,..judgement begins with the "nutty" believers first,..so rather than trying to saved the world, try fixing the house of believers first.
