Good luck with that.
In my opinion, we don't need any such help and won't get it. The Christians might need to police their own to slow their church's atrophy and preserve a larger remnant, but that is not a goal of mine. In the end, humanists will define right and wrong, and we will define the Christians well.
From the Affirmations of Humanism:
• We are committed to the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and to the solving of human problems.
• We deplore efforts to denigrate human intelligence, to seek to explain the world in supernatural terms, and to look outside nature for salvation.
• We believe in an open and pluralistic society and that democracy is the best guarantee of protecting human rights from authoritarian elites and repressive majorities.
• We are committed to the principle of the separation of church and state.
• We are concerned with securing justice and fairness in society and with eliminating discrimination and intolerance.
• We attempt to transcend divisive parochial loyalties based on race, religion, gender, nationality, creed, class, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, and strive to work together for the common good of humanity.
• We believe in enjoying life here and now and in developing our creative talents to their fullest.
• We believe in the cultivation of moral excellence.
• We respect the right to privacy. Mature adults should be allowed to fulfill their aspirations, to express their sexual preferences, to exercise reproductive freedom, to have access to comprehensive and informed health-care, and to die with dignity.
• We believe in the common moral decencies: altruism, integrity, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility. Humanist ethics is amenable to critical, rational guidance. There are normative standards that we discover together. Moral principles are tested by their consequences.
• We are deeply concerned with the moral education of our children.
• We want to nourish reason and compassion.
• We are skeptical of untested claims to knowledge, and we are open to novel ideas and seek new departures in our thinking.
• We affirm humanism as a realistic alternative to theologies of despair and ideologies of violence and as a source of rich personal significance and genuine satisfaction in the service to others.
• We believe in optimism rather than pessimism, hope rather than despair, learning in the place of dogma, truth instead of ignorance, joy rather than guilt or sin, tolerance in the place of fear, love instead of hatred, compassion over selfishness, beauty instead of ugliness, and reason rather than blind faith or irrationality.
• We believe in the fullest realization of the best and noblest that we are capable of as human beings.
The old religion beliefs and scientific discovery were never meant to be at odds with each other or reality and actuality.
The "universal" theocracy destroyed progression of society and freedom of belief in it's agenda of greed and lust for complete dominance and power over the entire known world, and even so far as total individual submission to it's corrupt structure of totalitarianism. It is the single most abomination to cooperative knowledge and understanding the world has ever known(so far). It, in itself, is an atrocity against mankind and the ALL, as I see it. We are still suffering the perverted twisted ideology of misinformation and outright obfuscation of the truth this faction has orchestrated upon mankind. There is just enough real information and truths embedded in the writings to make folks believe it is from the omnipotent...and that fact that it is NOT the whole truth makes it an untruth. We, as a people need to seek real truth, and recognize what they have done for what it is...and that is... We have been misled.

I heard a joke as a teenager about witches flying on broomsticks commando to get a better grip, but that's all I remember. I've been contemplating the subject ever since.
Wasssup is far from my least favorite Christian. I admire his libido, bonhomie, and candor.
[Yes, I use fifty dollar words on purpose. My intention is for curious people who like great words to look them up - ten seconds at most with Google - and learn them.]
I appreciate that.

You did.
You lied about me, maligned me, and walked away from your mess, refusing to take responsibility, as your doctrine allows you to do, EXACTLY as I described. And you've already forgiven yourself for it all, EXACTLY as I described.
But I haven't.

I agree. There is no forgiveness until the injured party forgives you.
<quoted text>
Perhaps. I think that I forgive many things cheaply without devaluing them. In fact, the main reason to forgive somebody that hasn't tried to earn forgiveness is that you value them.
What I really find cheap is the kind of self-forgiveness that I am seeing from two of these Christians here.
And just to be clear, I don't really care if they as me for my forgiveness or not for myself. I just wanted to see what they would do. About half of you would have handled it as I you would, and the rest like Dim and Juicy.

It's changed now, to the Rachel Ruysch. I think that they are both interesting and beautiful, but I'd like to see full sized prints or the originals before judging.
Bonsoir mon ami, I have always found myselg going back to this still life, as I told you it has sentimental memories for me it was my first restoration and it took quite a bit of time to do, still lifes require more conccentration and attention to minute detail. I shall send you those soon so you may look on them both. The plums have a signifigance for me symbolically. Symbols can often take the place of words just like music can.

Here is the the Rachel Ruysch Painting:

And here is the other by Caspar David Friederich:

Nothing is more powerful than Christ. Its why the world each and every day lives to mock Him and the good He does. So this was one of the first things I posted when I started back in another fourm. Another poster said the same as you. My wife gave her life to Christ in the year 1999, 6 years before we met. She also almost killed herself on drugs and by the power and blood of Jesus Christ was saved. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, forever. This world is nothing!

As someone that has posted with CS for a long time...I can tell you...he doesn't want to scroll. IANS, Catcher, Tide, HL weren't here when Andrew started his rant about homosexuals. They came here because of his hatred against them.

He made his home at Topix at one time on the Gay/Lesbian forum...ranting...raving...aga inst them. When he was outnumbered then he started pleading for their understanding, patience and tolerance. When they gave it (some of them because of me) he then turned around and slapped them in the face with his words. Yet if they responded back to him...he was appalled...offended...couldn't believe that they would stand up for themselves. If you read carefully...he has done the same thing here.

CS has an agenda...spreading his hatred for the gay community...I have seen it before.

No...Andrew won't scroll...he would miss an opportunity to tell the gays and anyone that supports them what scum of the earth that he thinks they are.

I have tried to keep my mouth shut, but reading some of your posts, I felt like I must say something. I am a Christian,a follower of Christ. I do not hate homosexuals, or lesbians. I have friends that are... I do not agree with the lifesyle, it is wrong in my belief. I also believe that living with a man or woman before marriage is wrong, before the eyes of God. What someone does behind closed doors, I will never know. But, when they announce it and I can not walk away, I have to give my opinion... I do believe what God had put together man and woman, was his plan. Man can say anything they want about animals even go after the same sex. People say it is natural, but I have talked to child molesters, who have also said it just felt natural. I have also talked to serial murderers who also said it came natural. I am not saying being gay is like any of the other. People say that have no choice in who they are, but all of those people who murdered, raped and molested also said the same thing. People,(men and women) who live together, and millions are doing it, are breaking the commandments of God. I do not hate you or anyone else...I suppose that when it comes down to it, everyone has an excuse to do as they do and say it is okay. The gossiper down the street who talks about you behind your back will have to go before God, if they were making fun of you. Now if they came to you, face to face and spoke to you as I am doing, they are only trying to save your soul. I have to say it is what it is, the Bible is clear, man can try to change it, but it does say in Romans chapter one, if you would like to read it. Christians might want to walk around it, and not be offensive to you, and I understand that, but they are failing you. I will tell you that Jesus loves you, and it is not his will that anyone would die and go to hell. God bless you, and know I am not judging you, but just giving you the truth of what the Bible states. Everyone is entitled their own opinions, and when one doesn't agree, they are to believed as haters and that is not so.
I agree Knowledge.....I am a Christian and DO NOT hate homosexuals

Well thats a waste. My wife has said she didn't need anyone to tell her she was in the wrong all those years, she knew it. What won her over was a friend that helped. As I've said I was on the same path but not as far down along. God knows who is real. Ptl.

My name change was only for a specific topic that my name was not appropriate for. Some young people died in a multiple car accident, and some were hurt. The name Knowledge just didn't seem appropriate, to give my condolences... As I said to your husband, I hope your love will always remain young as you both grow older. I believe that is the key to having a strong bond between two people...
Bonsoir mon amie, whether your name changes or not people always know you by the words you speak I believe. In regards to our love rest assured that it is growing daily. it has ever since the first day we met. Love is key yes, we both know this very well but what also is important is getting to know the other person. Many do not take the time to do this. Which is why we were friends for three years before we moved into a relationship, we got to know eachother first. Impulsiveness ruins lives which is why we were both careful and methodical. Consider those who meet people on-line for instance are they really in love, or are they simply being told what they want to hear? After three years of bliss, we decided to move foward in our relationship because we realized that this is what we both wanted. I believe in love at first sight and so does Sora but we also believe in prudence and caution. Although we have a neighbor who met and eventually married a woman he met online, she was Russian. They dated in real life and got to know eachother face to face then married, they still are and we are happy for them. Five years it took them. Which I think is good time. May I ask how lond did you know your husband before you married him?

You're claiming ignorance you shouldn't be.
2 Peter 3:8 means that time means nothing to God, you are amart enough to figure that out.
Theer's also Psalm 90:4 that illustrates that God doesn't see time like we do.
"A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night."
So a day to God is "as" a thousand years. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that a day to God exactly equals 1,000 years. Because it also says that 1,000 years is like a day...
And Psalm 90:4 says that a day to God is "like a watch in the night", which is a 3 hour security shift at night....
OK. Was that a rebuttal to something? I've asked you to be explicit about your point in the past: write it out in a sentence so that I don't have to guess. I suspect that where you see only one implication, I see ambiguity. Say it in words. It is so much more effective than semaphore or mime, especially over the Internet.

Actually...I have never been able to find where they are to ask forgiveness from anyone outside their faith.
According to this scripture...shrinky dink might be right...
Matthew 5
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
"brother and sister" being a fellow disciple.
Maybe it is in the Bible somewhere that they are to ask forgiveness from us little heathens...I don't know...I am not familiar with it however.
I think you are right Annie. I prefer to think of ALL men(mankind) as brothers. Division is counterproductive to progression of ALL men in every avenue. It is sad that we can't all see that truth.
