<quoted text>Thanks for sharing...... a wonderful contribution AJ :)
We know what you think about Christians, in general, and somehow you always find postings to share with us, hoping to make us feel better I guess.
Well sadly, your inspiration fails many times, and your postings reflect an attitude that somehow, I don't think you recognise. The woe is me, poor mother of a homosexual son wears thin...... and so do these sort of postings.
Why didn't I write something positive to you instead of what I have written? In my eyes, as least, this is an honest response to a typical posting, and believe me, I am expecting some sort of "I told you so" posting, as you ram it down our throats how un Christian I am being.
Well, I think JESUS would have eventually said something similar; if you don't have something nice to say, then try not saying it.
How about something more like "Thank GOD I am alive today ~ I can breathe in this marvelous air, see the marvelous animals, listen to the marvelous birds and enjoy the marvelous sky - and hope that you can all do the same"?
We have known each other a long time AJ, and know each others faults, and I am not throwing down a gauntlet as such, just asking you to lay off and ease up a bit.... Cheers, Serah
I read this and moved on….went back to it and moved on…but found that I need to say something to this. I find it to be disturbing that you would post this to her. AnnieJ in my opinion is a woman seeking answers, while not hesitating to point out discrepancies that she feels that she finds across the board. Perhaps the two of you have been posting to each other for long enough that AnnieJ does not take the above comment offensively, so I understand that I could be blowing this out of proportion. I read the above post as simply an emotional jab to get someone else to stop typing their opinions and feelings on here. I enjoy reading her posts and honestly hope that she keeps openly sharing her personal journey here. I believe that God places people in our lives for a reason. We may not understand why we cross paths with another, we may not always agree with them, but I think that we as individuals miss out if we do not at least attempt to see a personal blessing in the crossing of paths.

I see that. You said they were cruel so they created a cruel God.
This is not something you know, this is your opinion.
.. all you have to do is look to the deeds of our ancestors to see the cruelty of man ..

.. it would be logical to concoct a barbarous god who condones the despicable acts of humans ..

I'm confused about why you two aren't getting along. I confess that I don't read the posts about doctrine, and so don't know what your issue of disagreement is.
But what difference could possibly justify you not getting along better? And why can't your religion bring two relatively gentle and kind women who ostensibly love the same god together? And isn't that significant that it doesn't? You don't see irreligious people doing this. The conclusion is obvious to me. Religion is divisive and belligerent.
Yes, the believers and unbelievers are each belligerent to the other. But look more closely at where this comes from. The believers are also belligerent with one another. We are not. We all get along with the other unbelievers here. Happy Lesbo never calls Catcher names, and Hiding and River Tam never say things like what you and Serah, or Quin and whichever Christians he fights with say to one another.
That saddens and concerns me.
I don't expect you to turn on your religion. But please try to see what I see. We will all get along better without religion.
You are not suggesting that if religion was gotten rid of, everyone would get along are you?

If it's God's plan, then it should be celebrated, not criticized, yes?

I knew it! Now is it Buddhism? Not mocking, it would just explain your zen calm, lol...
I went from Christianity, to a melange of New-Agey stuff, to Zen Buddhism, to atheism. I kept the meditation practices I learned from the Zen Center in SF, so yeah, I'd say it has had a very calming affect on me.:)

It also reflects the philosophy espoused by the Holy Church of Catcher.

No, Shakespeare. When I say "we," I mean myself and at least one other person.
<quoted text>
Asked and answered. Rational skepticism and secular humanism have given us science and individual political freedom for starters.
What has your group - the Christian church - given us besides the Crusades, the Inquisitions, the Salem witch hunts, and more terror, shame, guilt and blame than humanity should have experienced? You ignored the question the first time.
<quoted text>
No.
Why would I? I have no interest in sharing anything personal about myself with you beyond what I already have. You're a felon.
LOL

All you have done is spin your wheels online for years. YOUR group has done nothing. You haven't effected a single bit of change yet you talk as if you are part of some crusade bringing Christianity down online and elsewhere. You are delusional 'doctor'. If you stopped posting tomorrow nothing would change as you haven't accomplished anything up to this point. All your files and personal constitutions is just for your game of make-believe

<quoted text>oh, you can criticizing as much as you want to. In fact, you can compile everything you think I write to you that not Christ-like. And I will write them to you a second time just to emphasize to you what I think of your criticisms ~~grin~~~
What was just hilariously funny and quite curious to me, is your thinking that a belief that you think is a myth, you criticizing people that you not believe following that myth..
lol..
is like I criticizing you for not living up to the ethics of Thor, but I believe the ethics of Thor is a myth.
I think you joking. that concept just too funny to be serious me laughing!haha.
I agree, getting schooled about your own religion by an atheist is pretty funny.

When you make Trifecta angry, his god gets angry as well. Trifecta's god, by the most amazing of coincidences, thinks just like Trifecta, mimics his emotional state exactly, and approves of everything Trifecta does. This makes you a hypocrite and Trifecta forgiven.
Oh I see. How convenient for Trifecta to have the entire universe governed by his projected ego.

Male or female "ex"?
Hey Karl, any success in getting those laws passed to have people thrown in jail for saying things you don't like to you over the Internet?

LOL

You are even crazier and more senile than IANS

Maybe you can get a law pased to have whippersnappers thrown in jail for walking on your grass?

Wilderide is a more Christlike than you are. He also has the peace that passeth all understanding and the fruits of the Spirit that eluded you. You're an angry and humorless guy.
<quoted text>
He is showing your hypocrisy. He is not in conflict with his stated ethics the way you are. He is actually in accord with your stated ethics better than you are. Consider the Golden Rule, a central tenet of humanism and rational ethics. Who wouldn't rather be treated more like Wildsride treats you than like you treat him?
Who's the hypocrite here?
Aw, thanks IANS. I don't know if I live up to having the "peace that passeth all understanding" consistently enough for my liking.

That's the irony though: most vehement fundamentalist Christians are the most unlike Christ. They certainly don't follow the golden rule with any consistency.

To define "miracle" is totally subjective a GOD will never clarify.
To have fulfillment and peace of mind comes from within there is no guarantee while having your mind on the GOD concept you will succeed. What I do know is a GOD doesn't give you comfort, as I've said, it comes from within, as is your GOD within.
If a GOD is all that, then you wouldn't need temporal comfort from people, why settle for less if you can have the best.
I enjoy talking about the GOD concept, is it okay if I reject the claims of those who express knowing a GOD in word only?
Regardless of your choice of topic, this is still an entertainment site and a GOD has nothing to do with it.
Topix is a message forum with different rooms dedicated to different subjects

This room is called "Why Should Jesus Love Me"

It is pretty simple Mike

Of course nobody can be forced to stay on subject but people are absolutely correct when they say this room was set up for the purpose of talking about Jesus and people's religious beliefs

That idea seems to bother you so much that you have been trying to come up with various reasons over the years for why that isn't the case. It is. Just look at the title and the first post

And you not believing in God isn't the same as God not existing

Did God set up of room? Of course not. But how can God have nothing to do with it when the site is about talking about him?

Plus

Matthew 18:20
"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."

Now you don't have to believe that but why is it so important to you to try to get others to agree with you on that when you know they aren't going to?

Good post.
You embody your stated ethics, Trifecta does not. You are gentle and reasonable, and he is angrily calling you "Hypocrite!"
Well, I try to embody them. I don't always succeed. Maybe Trifecta is just new to the whole Christianity thing and hasn't settled in yet. As they say, there is no one with more zeal than a new recruit.

<quoted text>True thing. Just look at that freethinker wilderide that must have asked the same questions at least a dozen times or more and ask them to about a dozen different Christians on the billboard.
That's because every Christian sees their religion differently. You didn't think Christians were a form of the Borg, did you? Are you like every other Christian?
