My post requested posting OT support for several of the claims made about angels as well as OT support for a war in Heaven.

Christian apologetics and opinions are NOT acceptable as a substitute for Scripture (despite the beliefs of many Christians).

Actually, Matthew 10:22 says:
"You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved."
It's not at all about celebrating the end", as you suggest.
It's about how much is at stake in the witness and suffering taking place in Matthew 24 - that a believer’s future status in Heaven is being worked out in the choices he’s making on a day-to-day basis.
I think people have somehow come up with the idea that we are not happy people, that we fear GOD and can't wait to die.

Ah well, each to their own and after all, we only know what we have learned :)

Just so you know, there are some here pretending to follow the GOD-concept just to make the concept look bad. Therefore, you sincere folks should practice "Deeds", rather than regurgitated words.
How about you regurgitate words? How about writing some stuff in here that might make people feel better for having read your words? That, in itself, is a good Deed, is it not?

.. if you've read the debate between SCAR & SKOM, you'll notice a similar pattern ..
.. while I do not agree with some of AIN's battle tactics, he's returning fire, trying to make a point. Do you know what it is ??..
.. it seems SKOM is unable to see the very behavior that hurts him. Instead of interceding, identifying the communication problem, Christians remain quiet. Is that fair to SKOM ??..
It appears to be an ongoing battle of words between the 2 or 3 or 4 of them; Skom would simply bow out of it if he has had enough, and would not expect us to get embroiled into his argument. I think by ignoring certain postings, we are giving them privacy to argue in public.:)

Could have told you 'Darwin knows NOTHING about the Bible! anyone that says it states in our Bible that God told Adam to screw all the animals , he is a confused stupidity and thinks he knows everything!
Is this the same Darwin that use to post on PTAG thread? I seem to remember that name and he had a ape or chimp as his profile picture. I knew he was dazed and confused but I was trying to be patient and loving as we are told to be and do..Sometimes, Its easier said than done. He also claims to be a teacher or professor but he is on topix from sun up to sun down. Whats he teaching? and who is he teaching? I have noticed a lot about him that just doesnt add up..He is wise only in his own mind..

What can I do to help these Christians as Christians? Nothing that I know of.
I think that I can serve their descendants best by helping to push that loathsome church out of the saddle so that the humanists can take the reins.
But not them. They are intractable and proud of it, as the gentleman who just reassured me that none of them care or need care what others want reminded me.
You are an adult still calling people names and proud of your rude and hurtful words to others; and you want to offer us your help by showing us how good a man you are without GOD in your life? Ah, cheers, I'll keep searching for the good guys LOL

Show us your claim clearly, explicitly, and with supporting links, and I'll tell you how you're wrong. I'll help you identify which words you have paraphrased incorrectly, misunderstood and remembered incorrectly.
In the meantime, all we have here is your vague claim that I did something unethical and worthy of the word "liar."
I will embarrass you every time you do this. I don't mean that you are capable of feeling embarrassment or experiencing shame. I mean that you will be shamed in the eyes of others. Your peers will learn who and what you actually are, and how shallow your walk with your god really is.
This is what I mean about your postings; how about identifying your own issues?

Yes I do. You cannot disrespect people's faith and then expect to be rewarded with kindness. You're using this "Turn the Other cheek" business to make your way advantageous and you're being presumptuous that Christians will turn the other cheek.

<quoted text>
There is purpose to life without faith. And life has meaning even if there are no gods or master plans.
Besides, the existence of a god wouldn't make your life any more significant. Nor would the absence of one make it any less significant.
The mortal part of our life cycle is very likely all of it. If life only has meaning proportionate with its influence on an afterlife, then you strip your entire life of meaning if there is no afterlife.
Serah, this is what I mean about Christianity obstructing authentic spiritual experience. The natural experience involves a direct appreciation of the here and now with or without gods. Meaning derives from our function in family and society, and also with a sense of connection to the earth and stars.
But not for you. Christianity removes most or all of that.
Your attention is diverted to another place, one outside of the universe, one that may not exist. And you dwell on the time after your death, which you will likely never see either. How is that spirituality? Because you talk to supernatural spirits and feel affected by them? That's magical thinking, and is characteristic of children and primitive cultures. And Christianity. But not of maturity and authentic existence.
Humanists question not only the Christian view on morality, but also its view of maturity and of spirituality.
And metaphysics.
And epistemology.
For you, from the pen of the poet:
Now Ophelia, she’s ’neath the window
For her I feel so afraid
On her twenty-second birthday
She already is an old maid
To her, death is quite romantic
She wears an iron vest
Her profession’s her religion
Her sin is her lifelessness
And though her eyes are fixed upon
Noah’s great rainbow
She spends her time peeking
Into Desolation Row
What makes you think that this statement is correct?

are we not talking again?:(
allow me to share a story that i shared on another thread:
so my wife likes to watch criminal minds (proof that they're the weaker sex, but that's another sermon;) and i occasionally suffer through it just to be with her. last night a homosexual was killing people and i thought 'finally it's not a 'christian' doing the evil in an episode'!
turns out that this homo-guy was all twisted up cuz of this abusive'christian' treatment center his twisted 'christian' dad forced him to go to when he was a kid.
even though this homo-guy killed several of both innocent gays and women, the self-righteous FBI team was the most compassionate and gracious to this serial killer than i've ever seen them be in an episode before! GO FIGURE!!!
and to think y'all antichristers claim that you're not being continuously brainwashed! too funny!!!
How does watching Criminal Minds prove someone is the weaker sex?

And the 'conversion camp' drugged the kids while making them watch straight porn and also had them raped by a female woman while the parents watched and/or participated

There have been 'conversion camps' were some pretty attrocious things have been done and they have a high suicide rate

They FBI also was trying to convince the kid not to kill himself because they needed him to testify against the camp but I have watched the show since its beginning season and they always try to talk the unsub out of killing himself

Not looking for a fight but not really sure where you were going with this post

Incidentally, Serah, I think that your connectivity and empathy with animals is an authentic spiritual experience. And it is in the here and now, involving you and your pug. Your words suggested that you hadn't noticed the meaning and purpose in that. I know that you do - it's your nature.
But what you are taught to repeat contradicts it. Your words - what Dim would call your Christian indoctrination - discount that. The ideas they gave you undermine that. Here and now don't matter. You're a spirit wrapped in failed flesh, and your dog is even less: a soulless meat bag
You're taught that none of that has meaning - only the god stuff does, and life without a god belief is meaningless.
So, we see two different aspects of you - the indoctrinated one and the part of the original and innate one. It's hard to believe that anybody would opt for so bleak a world view, especially when the evidence that it is unjustified is everywhere, including your in your dog.
It's not you that I am complaining about. Nor your spirit that I'm criticizing. It's that damned religion, and how it actually affects people.
You are not religious, and yet, here, in this posting, supposedly to show how good one is without religion, you are calling another man names (again). Give me my dog, he just loves me for what I am, and knows I would not harm him although sometimes I might call him names for being a clown and misbehaving.

Actually, dogs are amazing...... but I know you know that too.

Frightening for sure.

He left Christianity, a Religion. He was never part of the body of Christ.

Then he go into Secular Humanism, and as we see turned him into a hateful arrogant foaming at the mouth evil person.

He is a scary testimony of secular humanism, that for sure.

Anybody want go get some secular humanism, they need to look at that writer as a scary and sad example.

ROFLMAO
Are you laughing at the same GOD you wrote about when stating how wonderful were the roses HE created? You are back and forth like a pendulum, G, swinging from one side to the other. GOD isn't like a pendulum, changing HIS mind from minute to minute or day to day; HE still is the one who grieved and repented making us because of our thoughts and intentions.

People blame GOD for trying to rid the world of evil; and others thank HIM for it. If you think man(kind) will ever have enough guts to stand up and tell the governments they are wrong, the judges and lawyers they are wrong; the sporting clubs for paying players for playing games millions of dollars a year and yet pay our service men a pittance for saving our lives; or making fire fighters fight fires in over 100deg heat for nothing BECAUSE WE CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY THEM FOR SAVING our homes, lives and that of the animals, then tell me the date you think they will have that sort of guts.

I just told you. Where you have to come running to IANs defense. I mean post after post, room after room, you and a few others respond to every post to him like it is addressed to you. Defending someone once in a while is one thing. You do it all the time.
.. that simply isn't true. You're seeing something that isn't there. I've remained outside your squabble with AINS and have refused to take sides ..

.. you're taking exception to my observation about you and continue to draw inferences that do not exist. Case in point, this very post ..

.. you began and continue calling AIN a liar yet fail to prove it. That's my observation. If it's incorrect, show me ..

.. I've told you before - I really do not want to be involved in this. It's between you and AIN ..

.. however, when someone makes statements like, "You do it all the time," or, "You always ...," they are usually incorrect. In this specific case, you are incorrect ..
