Thanks, Lawest, but I won't go back and read your previous posts, as it is all I can do to keep current on the posts. I have seen what you have posted before, and you have not said anything that you don't continue to say, and which avoids or ignores what others say to you.
You can't put the cart ahead of the horse. Proved some evidence of the God's existence and you will have people piling on top of each other listening to you.

who="boooots"
Faith is ok for someone who believes in God and thus has the faith, but for someone who doesn't believe in God or thus doesn't have faith in God, it is rather a pointless exercise for you to attempt to 'educate' them to find God.
your words [[it is rather a pointless exercise]] a rather pointless exercise.

And YET, you keep engaging the Jesus Follower in a QuOtE "a rather pointless exercise"

So pray tell, please explain,[why] do you engage in pointless exercises? What is...{wait for it}...the point???

Depressing, and in my case it makes me angry because I think of the people who get sucked into these "Rapture" scares and do really dumb things which always harms their families.
Not sure how many time I have to say it this is not true. Unhappy lesbian says it over and over and you sit there and agree. That makes me sad. But something tells me this lie, that I wish the world would end will be repeated. Don't you get it? Saying that I look forward to the hope every Christian has in Jesus Christ doesn't equall hope the world ends.

What's amazing about that? The first scripture is contradicted by Psalm 104:5:“Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”
It's amazing because even though th language is, poetical, the fact is wonderful: the earth is so placed in space that it remains as stable as if it were a fixture.
Finally, your use of the phrase "for his time" is telling. Aren't these supposed to be the words of a timeless and omniscient god?
They are, and they're written so that we can understand them.

You must admit that, if the world were to end, it would put you out of your misery.

So you say. But you fail to support that claim. I say you're wrong (see below).
<quoted text>
I've shown you multiple scriptures that contradict you, including these:
[1] Dan 4:10-11 - "there was a tree at the center of the earth, and its height was great. The tree grew great and strong, its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the ends of the whole earth."
[2] Matt 4:8 - "Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor"
I say you're wrong about these scriptures. They contradict your claim that the bible does not report a flat earth.
Your choice to disregard them is part of your confirmation bias that simply doesn't want to admit that the bible writers had no divine knowledge.
You can think I'm wrong about the scriptures all you want, just remember that I'm not the one reading them like a novel, you are.

"Foundations of the earth", for example, is not a literal foundation of brick, mortar, concrete and rebar. I can't fathom why you would think it's literal.

You do the same with the "pillars of the earth", and the illustration you posted showed your mental image of literal pillars, a literal dome and a literal foundation

It's your inability to understand the bible that makes us not care what you think or post.

I saw in the night visions and behold one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven and came to the ancient of days and they brought him near before him.

And there was given him dominion and glory and a kingdom that all people nations and languages should serve him:his dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Your data are wrong. Christianity is dying in both Canada and Mexico. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Mexi... :
"Roman Catholics are 82.7% of the total [Mexican] population, down from 96% in 1970. The number of Mexican Catholics has fallen by 5% in the first decade of the 21st century"
Intellectual dishonesty? tsk, tsk, tsk, IANS.

The number of Mexican Catholics has fallen 5% because Mexican Protestants has risen 5%. It's a wash.

Your just doing anything to undermine truth and God's word by taking a verse and misrepresenting or twisting its meaning to suit your arguement.
Were you planning to support that claim? It should be easy if it is valid. Remember, we're not interested in what you merely want to believe, but what you know and can demonstrate. Your opinions carry no weight with people that don't know you.
Nick wrote:
Can you find me something better than the 2 previous verses you used.

These?:

[1] Dan 4:10-11 - "there was a tree at the center of the earth, and its height was great. The tree grew great and strong, its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the ends of the whole earth."

[2] Matt 4:8 - "Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor"

You didn't offer any support for your claim that those verses don't indicate a flat earth. You merely asserted it, and I thanked you for your opinion. But you have to support your claim, or the argument stands unrebutted, and the answer to your question is that I don't need to produce more evidence.

Go ahead and cite the biblical verse that unambiguously and without contradiction elsewhere affirms that those scriptures do not mean that their authors thought and were teaching that the world was flat - if you can.

I know you can't, making your comments nothing more than your opinion, which have no persuasive power.

A one verse wonder? I guess you mean that nothing in your bible should be believed if it appears only once. That's pretty funny.

I'm adding it to the list:

[1] I took the scripture out of context. It means something other than what it says (context and implied meaning never supplied).
[2] I don't understand literary criticism
[3] It's an allegory, not literal.

[snip]

[25] You have no reference in the knowledge of God to know our experience in Christ Jesus. The Word has to be embedded in one's heart, and that can come from God only.
[26] You're asking me to give you a four year bible study course on Topix?
[27] Dont fall in the trap of being a one verse wonder. You need to understand the passage and true meaning of the verse.

Anyway, you took too long answering my query, did you prefer Dung, Dag, or Dork? You get to be Dung.
There's that beautiful atheist sentiment again. It just pours out of you.... "More Christian trash"?

If you can ever get your facts straight, especially about the Bible, you might be worthy to have a conversation with.

In the meantime, just go ahead and keep on deluding yourself about the "hemispheric dome" that you claim the Bible talks about. That way your lies feel better to you.

You've changed your tune again, you deceitful worm. You suggested that we reduce our level of ridicule "for the benefit" of all. Now you've shape-shifted to a new argument in the midst of that one.
But to answer your question, yes, I do embrace tolerance and a tolerant society. Do you have an inkling what that means? It includes ridiculing your church into irrelevance.
You only embrace tolerance when it agrees with your world views.

Which means you are intolerant.

Your "more Christian trash" comment confirms that suspicion.
