Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

<quoted text>That's my issue as well. I would rather see the word used in the context of a discussion than just being written because then I'm not sure if the Christian or writer really know what the verse mean that they write.
But that's different than saying I'm annoyed by that.
My thing is that The Word of God, is the Christian. The bible, is the Christian. Jesus Christ, is the Christian. The church, is the Christian. The Christian's life, is the Word.
It's impossible asking them to discuss their philosophy which is Christianity and Jesus Christ, and not include the bible. In fact it's rather preposterous and naive for an unbeliever to ask that of a Christian.
You do not want to Christian to talk about the bible?, then don't ask the Christian to discuss philosophy. It's that simple. Talk about the weather or sports or politics or the news or wallstreet investments or anything else. But ask about Christianity, the Christian MUST include the bible. Basic stuff. That like asking Elton John to talk about music, but not to mention he is a musician himself. Or ask Bobby Flair to talk food, but not mention he is a chef himself with many restaurants. foolishness.
If the bible annoy a unbeliever, then that unbeliever simply need to talk to the Christian about something else, rather than they religion. And if they do that, then they won't have to worry about being annoyed at reading or hearing about the bible. Simple solution.
Trifecta1, those analogies are not really on the point at all. Asking Elton John to talk about music and not mentioning that he is a musician, is one thing, but if you are talking about or to Elton John and rather than talk he just sits there and sings his songs all the time, I would think at some point the talk would end and either you would walk away in frustration, or you would pick poor Elton up and toss him out the door.

There is a time and place for everything. One has to learn when and where something is applicable or not. A discussion is a two way conversation. Cutting and pasting Bible verses from an internet site has no meaning except if it is specifically required to back up a point that one is trying to make. That would not usually extend into several pages of verses.

Okay Elton, let's talk about your music. Why do you sing the songs you do?

Elton: Sings a Song.

But Elton I am interested in your background and what got you into music in the first place, and also I am wondering what being gay and marrying a man from that oft thought lesser country of Canada has impacted on your music.

Elton: Sings another song.

End of discussion. One or both walk away entirely disappointed.

From this, one would have to conclude that Elton doesn't understand English, or that he is too arrogant to chat with lowly people, or he is so self-obsessed that all he wants to do is sing when others want to talk. Actually I doubt Elton is any of those things.

I looked at them, but still didn't find what you are calling a lie.
In the future, please include the link. Giving me the only post number when you're looking at the link and could easily copy and paste it here seems a little lazy or inconsiderate.
These are the links to the two posts you just mentioned.

I couldn't see a lie there. I've added a couple more posts to help clarify what happened :
From http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
NoStress4me: "Find myself wondering at the very idea of where Christian opinion is welcome on here"
IANS: "Your Christian opinion is welcome in your home and church. I suggest you consider confining it to those places."
From http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
hick-up: "With the thousands of threads available on Topix you show up here to tell these folks they have no right to be here."
IANS: "You must be confused. I said and say no such thing."
From http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR... :
hick-up: "So you are a liar. Confine yourself!"
As best I can tell, you morphed my answer to NoStress' question of where Christian opinion is welcome into telling her that she has no right to be here, accused me of posting the latter, and then called me a liar for disagreeing that I had.
Is that correct? Did you change what was essentially 'consider that your Christian opinions would be more welcome in a place for just Christians' to 'you have no right to post an opinion on this thread'?
I should tell you that this has been a running theme in this thread for as long as I've been here: somebody misunderstanding or misrepresenting another poster, and then calling that poster a liar for not agreeing with that mistake. That is exactly what the Dimwit did repeatedly.
Do you still say that I lied here?
OMG....

It should never become a concern for the USA as long as the USA maintains its separation of church and state policy, and it maintains its military position in the world, so that no Muslim based government attacks, takes over the USA, and then imposes Islamic law. I highly suspect that many of the Muslims who move to the USA (though there are some people in certain ethnic groups there who convert also) do so to get away from abusive Islamic rule, though they don't necessarily leave behind their beliefs when they do so, much as many Christians came to American to get away from abusive Christian regimes, but remained Christians.
Yeah, I don't suspect it will, either.

I threw that last comment in to somewhat highlight that some Christians at times will point at Islam and how Islam treats a segment of the population in an Islamic country, as some sort of proof or assertion that they feel should negate any criticisms of Christianity by comparison.

It's almost like a Christian slogan on a billboard.

It is of course, only my opinion, but HE would be feeling the hurt of the one that is hurting, rather than laughing with the one who is laughing.... HE is within each of us, and like our brain feels the pain of a prick in our finger, HE will feel the pain that is in our hearts.
It is also my understanding that the following Scriptures tells us so;
Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

My work life...

… We live in a fairly cheap apartment, and I have had no car since late 2010, which makes it cheaper for us, as the cost of a car is much higher than the public transit costs locally, and when I need a car for long distance infrequent travel I rent one for a few days, which is much cheaper than having one sitting costing me money all the time.

During the first years of my life, we had no running water in our home, and I was likely close to my teens before we had a shower in our bathroom.
As you 'think' in these thought patterns, I cannot compare 'my little' to 'so much', and yet to have so much less is the greatest blessing in life, allowing more time for the most important things. Living in 3 lands, my Pacific Islands, Africa, and Australia, working between science, nuclear physics, governments, apartheid, medics, the law, or the homeless - to mention a few – what counts is always the pw's job throughout my life. I knew from the age of 3, and have never 'looked back'.

To date this has formed a book, which will be my final testimony, and proof of all I have witnessed. Never a reason in such fulfillment to be bored, and no time to lose nor waste. What I have achieved is not important. That I see the fruits of my labors is to the glory of God.

Why would a supreme, omnipotent being decide that what it needed to do in order to appease itself was to sacrifice itself to itself to save it's own creations from the wrath of itself?
Simple. The wages of sin is death, the forgiveness of sins comes from bloodshed.

This means that someone or something has to die.

God doesn't want humans to keep on killing animals to Him for your sins, He wanted to take the wage of sin, which is death, on Himself, so anyone, anywhere can receive the salvation, which is the free gift of life.

Now answer her question; Why shouldn't Jesus love you?
