It aint necessarily so wrote:
I feel if I respected that I'd be needlessly contributing to the stupidity and ignorance of the human race, and that is one thing I don't want on my conscience. No offense.
Nothing he said there is incorrect. Nothing can be argued against, because all that he says is true. The only thing that I would fault him on, if he could be faulted, is that one has to remember that you are addressing other human beings, who despite their weaknesses, and their gullibility, are still deserving of some respect, just because they are human, like he is. So though his making those comments on youtube, usually in response to someone arguing against him, is quite appropriate and okay, he might want to be a little less caustic if he was at a social gathering with others who he hoped would invite him back a second time.

Many people take attacks on their "beliefs" as personal attacks on them, as we see daily here.

Because in those times it was common knowledge and already known(especially among the "elites") so there would have been no need for any explanation....that's why. When the two/three "beings of the "blue shimmering essence" appeared to Abraham, he knew explicitly who and what they were-without question...and followed their commands without question-they were his commanders and emissaries of Enlil by proxy(the "watchers").
Great posts, BT42.
Are you by chance a fan of Zechariah Sitchin?

I would expect it was the latter. Those who formulated the "bible" left out some very important writings and explanations in concern of history etc. for obvious reasons.
I agree.
If christians would just research the history of both the OT & NT they would notice many red flags popping up.
With today's technology, it's very simple.

God's word says to not misrepresent Him- and if people are doing so- they can not serve in The Body in leadership util they repair their testimony~ A church that allows open sin in it's leadership is not a church of the bible. It is a church of the flesh- and in pleasing congregants and NOT God. Therefore putting "self" above God.
God wants us to leave our flesh in order to not put self above His purpose for His people. Some people worship their money over God- some a ballteam- He wants us to not put anything above Him- because when you do put our focus on Him above all- we SEE moore clearly what MAN has done to each other )c:
I guess, since we allegedly have 40,000 various denominations, and sects of Christianity, and likely over 2 billion individual opinions on who is misrepresenting God, it would be rather difficult to objectively find which one is the real representative.

However, the denomination to which I refer is the leading Christian denomination in Canada, and represents denominations that are the leading Christian denominations in the world, and is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada, and possibly the one which gets the most attention of the general public, so if it is misrepresenting Christianity then no denomination is representing Christianity.

Again, that, to me, is now redundant, as though I do believe that this denomination has one of the best policies of churches worldwide, it still, IMO, is misled as to there being a God. It also like all the other denominations in the western world is rapidly disappearing.

We can always "justify" when someone is on our side...or we have some kind of connection to that person.
<quoted text>
Over time we all build a reputation by the posts that we write...by the issues that we speak up against. We "know" each other by those reputations. Just as in real life (IMO) we guard those reputations online. Just as in real life...people will attack what we have worked hard to build.
<quoted text>
Sad that we do that...if we can't build ourselves up on our own values, morals, characteristics...I suppose that the only other way to make ourselves "look good" is to drag someone else down.
I can't speak about Dr Shrink, as I have not known him very long, at least not as that alias, and so far I have no desire to know him better. On the other hand, I watched Kaitlin being bullied daily on several threads for several years by people who allegedly were God's gifts to humanity, according to their own descriptions, and so if she seems a bit caustic, at least in her situation, she has had some reasons, though even I have mentioned to her a few times that she might be gaining more by cutting back a bit on her ways of presenting herself, since she is one of the smarter posters on Topix, and thus does not necessarily require the type of approach she sometimes uses.

I guess I find her kind of approach more difficult to understand when it comes from a person claiming to be a Christian, than from someone who has never claimed here to be a Christian. My knowledge of what Christianity stands for leads me to expect a bit different type of post from them, yet many 'Christians' here make Kaitlin look like a saint, in comparison.

Sorry, Kaitlin, I am well aware that you are quite able to stand on your own two feet without my two cents worth, but as you no doubt are aware, I am one to give an opinion anyway.

We all have reasons why we do what we do Boots...

Most child abusers were abused as a child...

We can't justify our actions based on other people's actions.

I understand Kait's anger...I have experienced that anger myself. I sometimes respond based on that anger. I have to own that...I made the choice to do so...no one forced me to.

I have seen Kait respond in a kind and compassionate manner before...I actually like that Kait. I just don't enjoy reading about such descriptive accounts that she sometimes gives. I scroll by those.

This is what I think...if I am going to speak up about the actions of those that I disagree with...then I should have the courage to speak up about the actions of those that I do agree with. To do otherwise would make me a hypocrite...we have enough of those posting here without me adding to the number.

Though...I believe that all of us can be hypocrites at times...we see our "own kind" in a different light than we see the "opponent".

One frequently occurring complaint that I have seen on this thread is that Christians will not speak up against their own and yet point out the faults of non-Christians.

.. absolutely. That's why I have a tendency to defend Catcher and AIN but I've also critiqued both of them. AIN can become militant because he's passionate about his cause and Catcher can get downright ornery when he suffers from jet lag ..

.. we differ here. I have no need to protect, defend or justify what I write. I can't guard against or control what anyone posts about me. When people write painful words, it's a reflection of their character, not mine. Do you think anyone takes Dr. Shrink's posts seriously? I certainly don't. Heck, I don't even read them; they're the same old smelly farts ..

2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Ephesians 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
Colossians 3:8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
2 Timothy 2:14 Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription:“The Lord knows those who are his,” and,“Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
2 Timothy 2:21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

We are NOT the individuals that attacked Kait elsewhere- from what I have seen scanning posts over this near past-and since I came in last week....- Her approach toward this thread has been to attack and belittle the people here- paying this thread back for what was done to her ?? So others have turned into doing things her way )c:

Dr. Shrink does NOT meet ANY of the criteria for being Christian- He is a poser- who has NOT yet accepted Christ- had he truly accepted Christ- his heart would be purified and he would not spew the filth and hate which he posts.
He seems to be every non believers excuse for their own wrong deeds. He does not represent Christ- he represents his own poor choices and his own world.

Hi truths.
You're not telling the truth.
Yeshua was never the promised messiah.
The first letter in the name Yeshua ("Jesus") is the yod.... names such as yo-NA, yi-SHAI, and ye-SHU-a have become known to us as Jonah, Jesse, and Jesus.

The Old Testament books in the Bible (all of them written between 1450 BC and 430 BC)

contained hundreds of prophecies
about an “anointed one”(“Messiah” in Hebrew)

who would arrive in their future.

The Messiah would “deliver” or “save” all the Jewish people,
bringing them to paradise or heaven.

These prophecies also stated that the Messiah would save all the other people in the world “through the Jews.”
For this reason, people who are not Jewish need to learn about the Messiah, too.
