That's a bit silly. You're claiming that an all-powerful, all-knowing deity had nothing to do with Judas's betrayal?
Yes. Judas had his own free will but was corrupt in thinking. It's like this...

<quoted text>
Rather, the mythology suggests that the Christian deity orchestrated events to sacrifice Himself.
Yes... even so, God has His own will and has also give to mankind freewill also.

No Actually, Judas was a gold-digger, well... a silver-digger in this case.
Hidingfromyou wrote:
<quoted text>
That's why Judas kills himself later - he's so disgusted with his God that he chooses to destroy his body, his temple.
It's true that he killed himself but he wasn't disgusted with God... Judas was disgusted with Himself for being such a treacherous person.

I think the very best we can do for them is to help them realize that other people's understandings of reality are equally valid to their own. Kind of an empathy training. Most will fail here, though.
Thanks

Bonsoir Qu,
Comme vous le savez je suis un créole, j'ai grandi en parlant français, il fait partie de mon patrimoine, je parle aussi le créole de Louisiane qui est un dialecte et très différent du français standard.

P.S.

Il est peut-être préférable pour nous de parler en anglais, que pensez-vous?

People see that all the time. The problem for Christianity and the Churches is that it is rarely seen in the Churches or Christians.

I read posts here and elsewhere and all I see is hatred for their neighbors and trying to force people to live by their doctrines' standards.

I find it disgusting.
What kind of perverts spend so much of their energytrying to force other adults to have sex the way they think is right ?

If one doesn't believe in X in the bedroom then don't do X in your bedroom and stay the hell out of other people's bedrooms.

It is written "if thine eyes offend thee pluck them out". It does NOT say 'remove the thing that offends thee', nor to 'pluck out the eyes of others'.

Howver, since most Christians don't follow the teachings of Jesus anyway, I expect them to continue being godless hate-nongers.

<quoted text>Hey Knowledge no problem.. if you look at the preceding pages I did a short study on it earlier... it had 5 parts to the message. The first one started with Ezekiel chapter 8. Let me know if you have probs finding it... thanks.
I still have found no evidence that one sin is greater than another, except blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. You are under the old testament. I am do not know your background on your religious beliefs. I do believe that Jesus will judge the hearts of man. There will be nothing hidden, nothing. The Bible speaks of the evilness of the tongue gossiping, backbiting is like murder. Jesus also said that if you look at a woman than you have committed adultry in your heart. I have not seen anything about sexual sin as homosexuality, being held higher than adultry or sex before marriage. I know in Romans 1 homosexuality is being called being turned over to a reprobate mind. That means away from God. Abominable, meaning detests/hates... Anyone who commits sin, is away from God, or they would not have committed the sin. God detests/hates all sin. Do you not think that child pornography or the ones who is committing it is a sin worse than any other sin. I do, but sin is sin, and it is not going in. I have not seen a rating from God as murder is higher than rape, or lying is worse than gossiping. Bottom line I suppose I am trying to say, that we all sin and fall short of the glory of God. I believe it was in Timothy, that if we say we are without sin, we are a liar.

That is why we confess our sins and go through Jesus Christ in order to be saved.

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, is the only unforgivable sin.

I do believe that Preachers, Teachers, and Priests and Apostates who sin against God, without forgiveness, will be held higher accountable before God. Just my opinion from what I have studied and read.

Repeat child predators? Today, they are never allowed to own a car or a drivers license, be at least 500 feet from a park or school. They are not allowed to go in State and Federal parks in the state that I live. You would give them back their rights, knowing they can not/will not change? What about child offenders?
I meant adults who offends a child. Not a child offender. For anyone who might have misunderstood. Sorry about that.

1. What relevance does this phrase have to our discussion?

2. Why should I pay attention to an ancient mythology written for a people whom I am not one of?

3. As to the first part, I accept that. I have no idols (except in the idoru sense) and no molten gods. Good advice! Go a bit further, though, and get rid of all the imagined beings, like the one mentioned in the second sentence.

4. As to the second sentence, did you know that Leonard Nimoy says that in Civilization IV? Kind of funny.

I wasn't focusing on any specific type of crime. In fact, the issue was raised in connection with Skombolis.
Again. It is my view that, once a person has fully served his or her sentence for a crime, including the required period of parole, that person should be considered rehabilitated as a criminal or, if you prefer, the person will have paid his debt to society for his or her crime. There is no justifiable reason to deny the person the right to vote. This would just serve to marginalize people and possibly increase recidivism.
Yes, there are often certain restrictions on sex offenders--registration requirements, housing restrictions, perhaps others in some states. I wasn't addressing these, some of which are controversial and are currently undergoing review in the courts. There are also statutes permitting civil commitment, at the end of the criminal sentence, of persons deemed by psychiatric experts to be sexual predators. Obviously, these people are not eligible for restoration of civil rights.
Glad you said that! LOL I agree with you also. The recidivism is astronomical, it is sad that the majority who does come out goes right back in....I am happy to see those who have made it, and never returned.

False. There's precedent for God taking away free will in the Bible, starting with hardening Pharoh's heart and ending with Judas.
<quoted text>Wrong.. God just knew what He was up to ahead of time.
You believe that God is the Creator of the Universe and somehow could not have Created a universe where Judas did not betray Jesus?
No Actually, Judas was a gold-digger, well... a silver-digger in this case.
No, his suicide demonstrates how disgusted he felt at being so used by God to betray his friend. So he threw the money away and defiled his only altar.
It's true that he killed himself but he wasn't disgusted with God... Judas was disgusted with Himself for being such a treacherous person.
No, he was sick of being used and upset at what he was used for.
Poor Judas is in hell right now.
hahaha!

First, there is no Judas, no hell. So, silly statement.

Second, an all-loving, perfectly moral deity couldn't send His Creation to eternal punishment. That's not all-loving, not all-forgiving and certainly not moral.

See how encultured you are to fail to understand the illogic that you invoke?

Um, not sure I should bother but here goes. Some time back I posted here quite often, left because I see it as kind of pointless. Way way too much off point. My cause is Christ and Christ alone. This is something, perhaps the only thing I agreed with Mr. X on. Anyone can say anthing. People that oppose Christ can't do a thing about the faith of a Christian unless they allow it. We have put our money where our mouth is and do what the Lord tells us. At this time its not sharing our past. They could change in the future, who knows? And no, my wife has said the reason she gave up on life and almost killed herself was becasue she knew she wasn't living right, nobody was even around her to tell her different. She had left her hometown and was living in a place where mostly kept with the lgbt click. I see you and many in this fourm as very much bigots and everything you cliam to not like: full of intolerance and that is indeed your problem.
You most certainly are sharing your past Chris..
You use your wife to try and explain away YOUR bigotry- at
every chance you get on here..
-if you aren't sharing- stop using your wife as a weapon against
a group of people you have no right to judge...

Well, I see you are as hateful as Qu and Lawlest are- claiming to speak for Jesus all the while..
-so carry on..

I wish your wife much luck and success in her "new" life.
By the looks of your intolerance- she's going to need it.
