For anyone..........But seriously, if our eternal lives depend on this book and the christian God wants us in heaven, shouldnt it be a whole lot easier then that?
I know if I had friends I wanted to invite for dinner, I wouldn't make them cross the forest of darkness to get them there..........Jus sayin.........
If a perfect god created a perfect message for the beings it desired to perfectly worship it.

The perfect god would ensure the message was perfectly conveyed, since, according to the perfect stories, the perfect god desires all the beings that it desires to worship it, in deed and action, to worship it perfectly.

It wouldn't allow the message to be imperfectly understood. The perfect message would be perfectly clear.

It wouldn't allow the perfect message to be misunderstood, since the perfect god desires all beings to perfectly worship it based on the perfect message it provided, perfectly.

If there are multiple conflicting and divergent understandings and misunderstandings of the supposedly perfect message of the perfect god, then the message isn't the message of a perfect god, or there isn't a perfect god, since there has never been a perfectly understood message from a perfect god.

If this perfect god existed, I can't imagine it would allow its desires be thwarted by an imperfect trickster god that the perfect god created perfectly imperfect.

But, that is the case with most god mythologies. And that seems odd.

Since a perfect god can only create perfection, according to the allegedly perfect books, that the allegedly perfect god left for us to perfectly follow.

That are nowhere to be found.

That is all.
Perhaps then, now that you have made your point of view very clear to all, you might be able to let the topic drop. Let us just be people...... that is all.

I don't have to tell you how much I love music. I just have a problem with it these days... I believe I 'turned the other cheek' too often in Africa, and the result is permanent damage with no cure. I probly should regret doing so for the beatings my head has taken both physically and mentally... but there's something about Truth when God rules the airwaves!
Love always my Friend in His Peace and Love and trust you have a good and rested week-end coming up. I must have lost track of time 'last night/morning' with 'TUES', because I woke up and it was FRIDAY! Now THAT is worth a >>>smile<<<
It's 12 noon now...
Indeed ((((IRRIRA)))), you can pick up that spirit in whatever music you listen to if you are not careful, I personally hate the loud hip-hop rapping lyric's of today's youth, I much perfer the glorifying music of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I admit that I still like some of the old school R&B music of the 60's, 70's and some 80's that I grew up with, but try not to listen to that too often as it is best to soothe your soul with hymns and praises of Christ.

Hope you have a Blessed weekend my friend.

Gays don't need to feel bad or make amends to people they have given aids to as their medical records are protected unless there is proof they did so knowingly which is almost impossible to prove

Oh, someone thought that was a negative implication towards gay people? I know I made it look like everyone by listing them in a group and gave an example something only a terrible person would do but I wasn't actually doing any of that. I am simply describing the law and the fact that I am sure some don't feel bad.
This is how IANS operates
Ugly from the other side isn't it?
That isn't another side, since, being homosexual or "gay", isn't a faith supported belief and doesn't adhere to any sort of doctrine - chosen, selected from, or otherwise.

All you've done is make a bad analogy.

@Scaritual...you keep saying things like you think I wanted an apology and that I got upset you didnt accept mine with class. What possible reason would there be for me to be upset? I barely know you and someone being classless in accepting an apology in a reflection on them. It makes no difference to me how you wish to come off. And even though you blamed your reaction to my earlier post and disregarded your original contact with me was argumentative I not only accepted your apology for what you called having a case of the ass and even said I understood how my post could have impacted your response. Yet despite that you want to keep making some issue out of it despite a corgial exchange after. That doesnt surprise me since it has become a pattern for some of you to display poor ethics in your zeal to rush to IANS defense. Again, a reflection on you not me. I am sure a pattern not lost on many in here

Right, because being homosexual in this society is sooooooo much easier. I commend you for choosing the harder road. Can you ever forgive me for being a weak girl and taking the easy way?

That's sort of the problem though, isn't it?

Christianity will say anything when it suits itself, and end up saying nothing when something really needs to be said.

Bonsoir Monsieur, yes it is that but she fought and died for her beliefs there is no greater courage than this, how many of us here can say we can do the same? She knew that she was going to die when she was caught it was only a matter of when. However her death inspired others to do likewise and rise against evil and tyranny. Evil flourishes when good people do nothing.
Good evening monsieur Sora, how are you doing tonight?

<quoted text>And what exactly is YOUR definition of "demeaning homosexuals"?........is it the church standing on God's Word which condemns homosexuality?......is God himself who created all men and women himself a bigot or a racist?.........too bad your eyes are so blinded, God is going to see to it that his Word goes out and accomplishes either one or two things......... to either save or condemn, but it will accomplish one or the other.
And BTW, please stop comparing black people to homosexuals as I find that highly offensive.
Calling homosexuals perverts, or in CS's case, "pervies," is demeaning.

I can't respond to the rest of your post: I don't believe in a god.

Why not make that suggestion to Counter_Strike?

He's the person who calls homosexuals "pervies," not I.

He's the person who refuses to let homosexuals just be people, not I.

He's the person who doesn't let the topic drop.

Yeah, jokes can be hard to detect in text at times, but the ignorance is easy to see at all times.

This is, Ar Ar after all, the Evangelical Pentecost that says he isn't Protestant.

I don't hate you. But your church is a parasite.
What do you know about his church? Are you referring to all churches in general? What is your problem with all churches since I cant fathom what you could know about all churches and what they teach and how their members act. Would it be bigoted if I said I dont hate gays but I find the gay and lesbian alliance or any other gay organization to be a parasite? Please define what you consider the 'church' and list their officcial policies you find parasitic since you are labeling an organization that consists of hundreds of millions of members. It does make it easier for you doesnt to say 'church' even though the 'church' is made up of millions of people doesnt it? By your own definition the church is made up of volunteers so how does one label millions of volunteers as anything? Who is the 'church' and how is it a parasite?

Today's Prayer
God, Things that taste bitter, do not taste good. Likewise, a soul that is bitter, does not feel good. Please help me to not become bitter over people who have hurt me. I pray for these people, that you would help them realize what they have done, and give them the desire and courage to make things right. I pray also that you would put the desire and courage in me to forgive and put the past behind; to live every day as a new day, being thankful for new beginnings. Thank you God, for giving me a new beginning. In Jesus name I pray and give you thanks. Amen.

Amen. Good prayer.

Hey! You're not weak, as far as I can tell. What I meant was sarcasm, nothing more.

Not all Christians hate gays, that's just the leftist media flashing around bullshit propaganda.

I can accept gays, though I can't consider them "normal". Good enough?

Here, I found this for you:

That sounds like the name of a porn star, or a character in a Mike Meyers movie spoofing a Bond movie.
