<quoted text>I don't want whatever blessings have caused you to be duped by cultural conditioning. We're you from Islamabad, you would be claiming I lack the blessings of Allah, from Bangalore that I lack the blessings of Vishnu or thousands of other gods in hundreds of other religions. That you try to take a page from a book that is selling you something at a dear cost, a cost usually financial, but mainly a cost of the suspension of reality in order to prop up that book is the height of nescience. What else would it say? It is the original infomercial and your Billy Blaze on a cross is raking it in at your expense.
You're speaking of worldly churches out for financial gain sir, salvation in Christ is free, but I understand you would be Christ discreditors will always have a problem distinguishing the Lord Jesus from worldly profit seeking organizations, and sadly you'll likely always be blinded by such.

"Dear Dr. Laura
"Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.
[1] Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
[2] I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her? She is 6 years old, healthy, and very smart. She doesn't want to be a slave, so that might be a problem.
[3] I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness - Lev.15: 19 24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
[4] When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
[5] I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
[6] A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?
[7] Lev.21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear contact lenses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
[8] Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though Lev. 19 expressly forbids this: How should they die?
[9] I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves? What should we do with the NFL?
[10] My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws?(Lev. 20:14)
"I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help. You are a great prophet and I will go to my grave remembering that you were among the very few who placed the blame for 9/11 where it truly belonged: on abortionists, gays and lesbians. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging."

Good points.:)

Regarding the taking of Canadians as slaves, we Canadians refuse to work for people of lower education and intellect, especially when you don't have socialized medicine.:) You would thus have to put us all to death, which would kind of defeat the purpose of making us slaves.

Too long for me to watch much, but obviously a sign that Christians attack other Christians. I have no use for the Papacy or the RC church but it is still part of the Christian religion and encompasses the majority of Christians (or is a larger denomination than any other). All are following false beliefs, but I don't think RCs are any better or worse than any other, though the Papacy is a farce, and I think the end of the most recent Pope's short reign should have been the end of the Papacy as an entity.
I have RCs in my extended family - a nephew through marriage, a son-in-law, just to mention two. My previous partner, prior to my current wife was a RC.
Boo...There is good and evil everywhere... Just keepin' my eyes open...:)

Yikes to that sentence.
There are other punctuation marks besides the comma. There's your period, for example. And you always have your colon.
I thought they were talking about punctuation when they told me I needed a colonoscopy.

Imagine my surprise.

Well, I guess in a way there were talking about punctuation.

Make up your mind, if the Bible is man-made then so are the words, sentences and beliefs, and so words spoken from here are just like the man-made words you speak from science books, English books and everything that you learned from books.
If the Bible is not man-made and came from God, then you simply rebel in your spirit, because the demons inside you are angry.
Take a pick, since you are used to being wrong, it should not hurt.
If you are tired of trying to prove something that you have no proof about, then that is your issue.
Like you said, the poster was a fundamentalist, which explains your lack of respect. If you ever find an atheist who is respectful even when it disagrees, then that would be magical and like finding a unicorn.
My mind is made up, but subject to change given the necessary information. No danger of that happening on this site, I can see.

A true believer, who believed all the things that believers claim they believe, would find no time or interest in participating on an internet discussion board. They would be too busy enjoying their 'walk with God'.

Not true.

For most non believers, evidence is everything.

What we believe readily changes with the discovery of new information.

That makes non belief superior to belief, with regards to religion.

Boooots is a non-believer. Now. He was raised in a Catholic household & attended church for many years.

But he's lost his faith and turned his back on God.

Just like Hitler did.

Divert your gaze to Jesus. There's nothing to see here on earth but religion. None of these people that we are actually experiencing is the real deal. Real Christianity is nice, like hugging a kitten.

Now we're starting to disagree. You may ask; Why? Read the bible. Look at the OT. It isn't nice, happy, or cuddly. The parent religion of Judaism isn't much different in result than what the child religion found in the NT(the Jesus!) culminates in, and only 500-600 years removed in its barbarity or barbarous practices from its brother religion, Islam. I have no doubt Islam will be just as "peaceful" as the Christianity of today, given time to mellow and adjust.
<quoted text> Choose me, love me above all others, and allow me to love you for your servitude and dedication to me, which I deserve, since I am your deity, or die. Horribly.
I agree completely. My sarcasm didn't come through.
scaritual wrote:
The more and more I see a cross section(pun intended) of Christianity, and the adherents, minus the denominational monikers among those claiming to be "pure Christians" - and allege they are "pure Christians" minus the dogmatic religion aspects - the more I am forced to come to the conclusion that the essence of the "religion", and by that I mean the core, is corrupt.
I agree. It's a failed program both for understanding the world and for behaving in it.
scaritual wrote:
Or, maybe they just can't separate themselves from those dogmatic and "auto-pilot" responses and positions. The most obvious and widespread of those dogmatic "auto-pilot" responses is the bigoted, insult by proxy and death by proxy promises, gleaned or taken from the manual.
Agreed. The church is corrupt, and it teaches its people how to think and behave. Many succumb.

Just for a moment, consider this. Christianity has this thing it does. It's thrown around quite often and goes similar to: "You're gonna die like you deserve to die, It's my DEITY that's gonna do you, and its really gonna be horrific. I'm just warning you. It's not ME saying this, it's my BIBLE words, and according to my BIBLE words, you are a horrendous, abominable and wretched being that my DEITY will kill for being as such. I can't help that you are disgusting, it's what my BIBLE says, see? This is just how it is, it's what my BIBLE says, the BIBLE contains the word(S) of my DEITY, and I believe those words. Bottom line, if you aren't in my group, you are ultimately a piece of sh!t no matter how good of a person you are, and worthy of death."

That's LAWLESS. He says that.

[QUOTE who="scaritual"] "I love you, but my bible says you suck major ass and so you must. You can't help it. That's just the way it is..."
There's Christian love for you, or at least one kind of it. They'll also tell you that they actually love gays. Ask Adam. They love like their god loves: somebody has to suffer.

Why do you feel the need to point out that you're not homosexual?

You think anyone gives a shit if you're straight or gay?

You think being straight makes you a better person?
