Well... I think people can respond anyway they like but, I'm not sure it's fair to blame the believers who don't do that for the ones who do. Jesus never taught believers to say anything like that to people and people should not do it. When it comes to sharing scripture though, unfortunately such words are part of some of it but in my case and a few others, the scripture isn't posted to offend anyone.
My issue with the statement made, "your religion teaches you to call people names', is that I don't believe it does, I believe people choose to do that.
I'd be interested in finding out if your and others churches ever taught parishioners to say those things to people, I haven't seen it myself but it's all very different over there.
I think all this goes back to questioning when Scripture is used to smack at someone that believes differently.*Some* Christians use Scripture to smack at others and see nothing wrong with it. The reason I say that they see nothing wrong with it is because they say things like “It’s not me but the Bible you have issues with” after they post them. Now….at times that could be the case, don’t get me wrong. Yet a lot of times when I see it being said on here, it is to make themselves look like they should not be held accountable for their own choice of words, and when they choose to use them on others. I was not taught to call others names, in fact I believe that all are Gods children and should be treated accordingly. I would be interested to read where someone is coming from if their Church did actually teach such a thing and how they correlate it in to the teachings of Christ.

I perhaps should save that comment, enlarge it to poster size, and have Staples or Walmart, which are nearby, print it for me, so I can hang it on my wall. I have not been called an asset many times in my life. I do appreciate your saying that.:)

Oh no. What's going to happen if one of the Christian bashers leaves the forum? What a riot this is. I know you didn't intend this Le Le but this is the funniest thing I've heard today. Thanks for helping me to laugh.

trifectal1, I think (this is my own opinion) that your responses here tend to betray your acting in the spirit of how Christ would have wanted it, assuming Christ was a real person, which is not fair to assume, since we don't know that to be true.
I have observed IANS posting (I hope that is who your post was to) for several years on Topix, and I have observed that there is nothing irrelevant about what he posts. Yes, he may disgree with what you or others post, but he can never ben considered irrelevant.
Your opinion is noted, but not really substantive. When my soul comes before Christ how I write on topix [may] become relevant. but as of right now, it's not relevant, and we live in the [now]...so moving right along.

Oy![it aint necessarily] so is irrelevant to Christianity. What can he write on this billboard to affect Christianity??? nothing. Rantings and ravings. Fighting with hate anger and malice Skombolis and other Christians he does not like. To me he is acting like a lunatic and I truly suspect his writings are more for his own mental therapeutic exercise than anything else.

Maybe you find him relevant, because you agree with him.

Today's headline in a german newspaper was Obama comes to Frankfurt. We don´t need your hypocritical illuminati inspired John F. Kennedy copy and paste speeches of a free world here in germany. You did it 2008 in Berlin before you became the president of the united states of america. I know you also come to support the german chancellor Angela Merkel for her election campaign.You have deceived the ppl around the world enough.Please Obama stay in the U.S.

Okay you're right, Cheriann isn't new ...but how could HL know that?
It's not so much what you say, but how you say it that is one of their chief complaints ...I think. I understand you don't agree with HL's lifestyle ...I'm not wild about it myself ...But that's not my sword to wield.
Regardless, she is a human being first ...and should be treated as such. Do unto others; not just straight people.
Did you read the article Annie posted the other day about the treatment of others? I certainly hope you will.
Was that by any chance the blog link that I posted and the mother's reply? I hope so. I thought both had messages for all of us no matter what one believes...or doesn't.

I don't know if that was Darwin's theory or not. I understand he felt compelled to write about things he had discovered in his travels when he found various animals and birds which indicated that they had evolved. I doubt that he suggested that animals evolved from plants, but if he did so be it.
Much of the evolution that we know of today was found and verified by later scientists who tried to investigate what Darwin had discovered, and found various examples, which today is considered proof that evolution did occur and is still occurring, but except for a couple exceptions which I hinted about a few days ago, these evolutionary changes are not something that any one person could observe during his lifetime, as some take thousands, millions or billions of years.
The parts of evolution that has been tested and proved are not myths; that has been established, though I suppose that a New Earth Creationist would reject such as myths because it does not fit with the myths that they believe.
Still today there is nothing involving anything unnatural, or supernatural, that we read about in the Bible that has ever been found and proved - absolutely nothing.
We can argue the point, but unless new findings have occurred today that hasn't yet reached the major news, it hasn't happened.
Having all the faith in the world will not make a myth a true story, if it is indeed a myth.
...And God says only by faith can anyone please Him.

So God only establishes Himself to those with faith. And you have no faith in God, so God won't establish Himself with you.

There is [no]substitute to faith with God. None.
Mark 11:22
Then Jesus said to the disciples, "Have faith in God.

hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

And he not only rewards, but he reveals Himself to those with faith.

Nothing about Darwin's theory of how the human being came about is there evidence for, nothing. Sure a few animals changed minor characteristics over time, but that's it. There is not even evidence that one species turned into another species.

So as you say, there is no use arguing the point. You have never experienced God, so to you God does not exist. Billions have experienced God or a (g)od. And nothing you, a mere frail mortal can say that will cast a doubt on what that person experienced.

There is no solution to that dilemma. So you can either keep wearying yourself with it, or you can let it be.

I very much suspect that an 'all mighty and powerful being' could perform those recorded bible acts, however we have no evidence of there existing an Almighty and Powerful Being, and we have absolutely no evidence that any of the Bible acts really occurred.
Since we do now know that some of the Bible "acts' did not occur, one has to throw out the idea that the Bible is 100% true Word of God, assuming this God is not a liar.
As I have previously mentioned, I was raised to throw out some of the stories which had been proved to be myths only, so making that jump was not a jump for me. I just sometimes get surprised that some people still believe what the top mainstream denomination in Canada rejected almost 60 years ago.
iyai!!!You still have not specified the myths you're referring to. And I have informed you to what the word "specific" means. So that leads me to believe you're being either dishonest or are unsure of your facts and do not want to be specific for fear of losing face. Either way it looks bad on your part.

There is evidence that Jesus lived and did all those miracles in the bible. Sure prophets did some of those miracles, but only God can come back from the dead.

And actually it's established fact that most of what happened in the bible after the reign of David happened, including the life of Jesus:

So your lack of faith, is your doing. You simply do not want to believe. That is a choice [you]made.

Lying? Enlighten me. Please take me to my lie.
Read post 518538. Pay attention to your quote ...(that would be the italicized portion). Here you suggest Christians "confine" their practice to their homes and church.

Then read 518539. Here you claim you never said it.
As for vain, well, perhaps, but I'm not to the point that I require people to worship me or I'll torture them. I'm surely not that vain.
That isn't my idea of God either.
Would it be vain to say that I am more moral than your god?- a LOT more.
IMO, yes. The writers of the Bible had an agenda, just as the many translators had/have an agenda. The King James is the most widely publicized version. Do you think the original cavemen writers talked that way? IMO too much has been lost, and too much omitted in the multitude of translations. And it wasn't just mankind's ability to think critically that facilitated these changes. The self esteem of those in power and their ability to rule the masses and create wealth facilitated additional change.

Do I believe in a Supernatural Being?
Yes.
Does He/She/It live within the pages of a book?
No.
Did He/She/It inspire the writings?
Some perhaps.
What you call vanity may simply be me refusing to yield to Christian self-exemption and privilege, which I don't recognize. I recognize no special rights for the Christians.
For example, I reject the notion that Christians should be free to tell us how great their god is, but bristle at hearing how great he ain't. They call that rude.
Frankly my life is too full to give it much thought.
I reject the notion that Merry Christmas is the appropriate greeting, and that Happy Holidays is offensive. They call that a war on Christmas.
I know ...again, it makes no never mind to me. I'll chose my greeting, you choose yours. I'm thankful just to receive a greeting.
I reject the idea that putting your god on the currency is not shoving your religion down my throat, but wanting it removed is forcing atheism down yours. If I want to do that, I'll ask them to put "We Trust In No Gods" on the money.
Printing "In God We Trust" on money is fairly new ...started during the Civil War I think ...I could be wrong ...and no I'm not gonna look it up for you or anybody else. Again, I'm thankful to have a little money regardless.
I reject the notion that I can be called a liar for no apparent reason by any Christian, and he feels self-righteous doing it, but that any response in kind defines one as a troll here to harass Christians.
You have the opportunity to show me where you were ill treated. I wait.
In short, you people have a sense of being special. I don't share that sentiment with you, and I won't defer to you. In fact, I am defiant about it, which I think you mistake that for vanity.
Who are you people? Anybody here will tell you that my ass is planted firmly on the fence. I'm just trying to lead a life I can be proud of so the the eulogist won't have to lie and make up attributes concerning my life.

As for you, what I've witnessed is arrogance and belligerence, combined with a harsh tone and a demeanor of vanity. Your behavior is undignified ...yet you stand on your soapbox complaining it's everybody else. If it's so horrible here Charlie Brown; why are you here?

I kind of expect when I am on a discussion site that people will post their own thoughts, rather than just copying and pasting from a book. If one wants some to look up a particular passage just post the chapter and verse and anyone can find it online in seconds.
However, my comments are only my opinions about people posting verses. If that is all they know how to do, then so be it.
I can understand that, but to a Christian as you know it’s not just a book. At times the exact words we are looking for are found in Scripture, so we post it as our thoughts on the subject. I am not trying to argue with you boooots, just giving my opinion as well. It’s good to read you again, it had been a while.
