<quoted text>hu is a god-bot? Wow, that's a first. He is about as non-traditional as one can get and still believe in God. Not that anyone is judging him on that. We accept him just as he accepts us. Its all equal. But he couldn't be farther from a "god-bot"

I don't worship anyone in the religious sense."

What sense do you worship someone in then? I can't imagine any reason being more valid than the religious sense that someone would have to worship another. To worship another human being for any reason to me is indicative of low self-esteem. Its fine to respect someone else and to give credit and acknowledgement to things they have done but I can't see why that would require worship. Under what sense do you worship others and who is the object of your worship?
I worship Dave Grohl in the sense that I appreciate his talent and great insights.
Worship could mean to highly admire someone, and that's the worship I show towards Grohl.

I'm not forcing you to do anything, I'm voicing my opinions.
To say that you wish for everyone to be in peace with each other and be happy, but then to vote against their rights, is extremely hypocritical.

What is loving about taking away people's rights?

The Old Testament books in the Bible (all of them written between 1450 BC and 430 BC)
Your first date is incorrect.
Hebrew text writing was non-existent.

On the second date, you're cutting yourself short. It was later.

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.
http://www.clarifyingchristianity.com/m_proph... is but one page which will clarify.
You are correct.
The tanakh refers to a messianic event, but not the christian version.

That is not a fact, that's an assumption.

That's why I deny it.
Look at Kaitlin's comment with all the quotes.
Your denial doesn't make Hitler any less of a Christian.

Now, just to clarify, because some people here obviously can't read my comments without misunderstanding them:
Hitler was a Christian, yes, but I'm not saying that all Christians are like Hitler.

Like the rest of the human race- he still chose flesh over God- HOWEVER he repented and repaired-
Jesus is from David's blood line- I used to think that was the only reason God kept forgiving him- but when I grew more= I realised it is the same offer we all have!!
Can you show where David repented and repaired for having hundreds of wives and concubines?

<quoted text>Homosexuality is others choice- fine if they choose it-they can vote for it.

I do not vote on the topic- and as far as I know was never given the chance to.
Now that we've finally gotten to the bottom of your claim:
When did you choose to be straight?

If you think homosexuality is a choice and that's how you justify attempting to deny people rights, then let me ask you this:
Do you think we should be able to vote on Christians' rights?
I mean, religion is a choice.
You are not born religious, you are taught religion.

Both sides do it Lawest.
I do agree that we have a tendency to profile people as a group and not an individual.
Some Christians believe that all non-Christians are some evil wicked immoral pieces of garbage...you choose to believe that without knowing us as individuals.
You said...
"they blame all of Christ children for the actions of a few hypocrites and pretenders,"
You do realize that you are doing the same things yourself that non-Christians do...you are judging the faith of others.
You (when I use "you" I am referring not to you as an individual but as a collective group) also do the same to non-Christians.
What I am getting at is that one side is no better than the other.
Good evening Annie. I do understand the point that you are trying to make here, but in defense of myself I would say that perhaps I wasn't careful enough in my posts in conveying my points on concerning those who tend to lump all believers together in one basket, I for one do not have it in my mind that all unbelievers are in habit of putting us all in one category, there are non-believers here like yourself and a couple of others who do not go on the attack against our belief IN Christ by calling our God an imaginary deity and speaking all manner of ignorant and blasphemous statements against our faith, but most of the unbelievers here do so sadly enough, and I was generally referring to those that do so.

I am not so much judging them in particular as their errant behavior is simply speaking for itself, and we are simply calling that foolish behavior out, I have no problem with anyone who does not believe because I understand that the only way that they CAN believe, is to be so Blessed of our Lord and Savior to do so, and which is why we count ourselves among the most Blessed, but our problem comes in with all the demeaning remarks against our faith, beliefs and against ourselves as a individual as a whole, and even more damning ( to them ) is that they speak again.........most blasphemous and nasty words of evil against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is the author and finisher of our faith, this is not to be unexpected of course as we were warned by the Lord himself that the way of truth will be evil spoken of, but at times it is pretty annoying to deal with, but we do pray for you all as well.

Peace.

If its a right someone never had, how is it "taking away" anything?

Are you okay?? Maybe you have low blood sugar or high blood pressure which prevents you from moving off a topic?? I am hoping that you will spend more time enjoying what is positive in life- and not focusing on things which you have no control over. Your current situation is not healthy.
And when did you CHOOSE to like red licorice? Can you choose to dislike it?
If so, I would love to know how you can change the chemical makeup of your tongue to do so on a whim.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>Yeah, it was the evil drugs that did that to you.

No, Dimwit. You were weak, which is why you went to prison.

You still are weak. You control your impulses with a fear of hell. Now you have a reason not to engage in antisocial activities.

I suppose I should be pleased, and count it a small victory for religion if the streets are slightly safer because it gave you a reason to stop hurting people.
I keep seeing you refer to his sentence, what exactly was he imprisoned for?

Did you even read my post?
You're attempting to declare war on a post that said "I won't bother you."
I had no issue with your reply to PW

Just wanted to make some points about the earlier question. Even when legit, the practice of essentially calling someone out to hold them accountable for not making public rebukes at our choosing, and especially ones that force them to announce where they stand on controversial issues, is an inherently problematic thing to do.

I did however like the fact that you did not badger her, accepted her response, and the fact that she was under no obligation to clarify. So in fairness I probably should have acknowledged that. I just generally dislike the practice because at its best it requires someone else to confirm to our moral view less suffer the consequences. But again, your approach to it was much more reserved than what I have seen in the past and there may have been some genuine curiosity. I just wanted to make some points to provide some food for thought

(T) Peace

So you're claiming they were all atheists right? Get a grip on reality.

According to the geneaology, Jesus, who is not the christ, was the son of Joseph.
That's why he is called Yeshua ben Josef.

The Tanakh is OT
5 Books of the Torah Moses;Genesis,Exodus.Leviticus . Numbers. Deutoronomy
Nevim books
and Kethuvim books
prophecying future Saviour of Jews and world chosen by grace children of the earth limmited number

since Jews killed own Saviour,
salvation is departed from whole chosen by G-D Jewish nation,and given to gentiles together with NT,
because OT ceremonial jewish nation lost legal validation to be directly saved
it means only single remnant of Jews can be saved .not whole nation

<quoted text>I think they see one of the last places they can vent their frustrations is slipping away, as did the bigotry against Blacks a few decades ago, and some people can't be happy unless they have someone else who they can try to make unhappy.
That makes perfect sense and is probably the reason. It's just sad that they still think that way.
