And there will be merchandising. Amen.

The world is easier to face if you can put groups of people in neat little boxes. Realistically though, people don't fit in neat little boxes unless they are dead.

Sometimes the "pay off" isn't for ourselves.
I don't think that poster qualifies as my children.

But nope! And if I had either, I don't think my posting to him would actually benefit the kiddies or daddie.

The thing is, he keeps telling me to be nice to him so that I can get to know him. And he couches that in a bunch of insults. So...not really worth my time.

@HIDING...I dont deny those who start in the faith from an early age are subjedt to at least some indoctrination. That doesnt mean however when becomming adults they arent capable of shaping their own beliefs and feelings that can be very different than what they were first taught. But thats neither here nor there as far as the particular topic at hand. I would ask you re-read the post I quoted you from IANS and tell me in your opinion is that post indicative of someone who feels Christians are indoctrinated?It talks about typical Christian thinking and thinking what they do because of how their church taught them and several other things that are basically Imo the definition and what the result of indoctrination would be. Do you agree?
Skom...he didn't use the word indoctrination. He said you were taught by your religion. Given IANS meticulous nature and precise vocabulary, if he wanted to write "you are indoctrinated" he would have.

Given that he did not, in fact, use that word while you claim he did and base your opinion of his honesty on that interpretation, don't you think you'd better re-position your stance here? I mean, you're calling a man a liar based on your interpretation of his words rather than his actual words that are written down. I apologize, but that doesn't make him a liar. That makes your use of the word "liar" creative.

It's possible indoctrination isn't the wrong word here. From an atheists point of view, I see creationism as indoctrination. It's misleading, promoting of ignorance and dangerous when applied to medical science, destructive when applied to science.

And, so, would it bother you more if he wrote "Skom, you're indoctrinated"? I'm sure if we ask IANS "Hey, do you believe that Christians are indoctrinated?" He will answer.

Hey! IANS! Are Christians indoctrinated?

You've got that reversed.
<quoted text>
That's kind of my point, isn't it? He has forgiven himself.
<quoted text>
LOL.
So you say because he doesnít care what you think he forgave his self. Where you got that from I donít know.

My point is more like he isnít asking you for forgiveness or permission. He doesnít have to please you. None of us do nor do we have to worry about what you like or donít like. After all you are doing to us what you complain about us doing. Most of what I have read from you is you claiming things are that arenít. Get over yourself and realize that others are not as interested in your having thing be your way like you are.

to plead guilty,lawers persecutor,12 of jury and sentence guilty or not guilty
Jesus spoke about Judgement of others in this form, not delusional forms of faken christianity beliefs
nobody is able to condemn heart of believer or unbeliever
ALSO NONE OF THOSE LITTLE STUPID SIMPLE CHRISTIANS IS ABLE TO FIT DEFINITION WORD JUDGE OR JUDGEMENT?BECAUSE EXIST ONT SENTENCE GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY
Bonsoir mon ami, I believe only God has the right to judge the heart, we do not it is not our place as human beings. May I ask where you are originally from, I am a Creole and I am originally from New Orleans.

What I meant was that we can do things to help others without getting any direct benefit ourselves. Pseudo-alruism.

Your being here helps others perhaps more than it does you.

Skom replies....sorry got to do it llike this for space. No it wouldnt bother me at all if he said Christians are indoctrinated. In fact I think given what he wrote it would be preposterous for him to claim otherwise. I would also not be surprised if I searched to find posts with him using that exact word when describing Christians. I am currious as to how he will answer your question under the circumstances. The reason this came up is he said someone paraphrased him all wrong like I do when the person said Ians believes all or most Christians are indoctrinated. I dont know why he would deny this other than it is a common tactic he uses. But I wont drag you into this any further. Have a good one

I believe that was a misinterpretation of an actuality. One probably handed down through many generations, of a group that were indeed different from common people who were incapable of their physical and mental stature, and therefor thought of as "supernatural". Scripture and other ancient writings bear out their existence in actuality.
[ANG] was a race of individuals who possessed a shimmering blue radiance, superior knowledge, and the ability to become transparent and even invisible to the common people throughout history...one going back at least 60,000 years. Take the story of Abraham and Sodom for example. The characteristics are identical(just 1 instance). As related, they were ANG/[EL]=the shimmering/glowing messengers of EL(god), and were recognized immediately for who and what they were by Abraham... and at that, had abilities above and beyond that of the common people(including the chosen Abraham himself).
"Misinterpretation" of an "actuality"?..how about total exaggeration?

Stories told, often lean towards the perspective of the storyteller?

Why isn't "imagination", "figurative" often considered in bible stories?

@Grace Walker.......hope u see this as my phone closed when I was trying to respond and will take me forever to scroll back. I think that is a great idea to reach them before they even start. Like the old saying goes "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". I think you will do a wonderful job. God bless you for taking a very difficult and demanding yet desperately needed role to help save lives.(T) Peace

It is in Modern Judaism. Christians are still living in the Medieval period.

That is the recounting of nuclear war and it's fallout, which was documented by the Sumerians...and in that very location...only the "old" account is even more specific.
I'm sorry...a nuclear war?
