And for some cooky reason, you think I'm all aflutter with envious joy over the murder of innocents...

Wrong again. This is a good example of two Christians showing this guy for what is he is: a bigot. If he posted this crap concerning blacks you would say something, or any other group, race or religion. I have to ask, do any of you that claim tolerance have any for anyone that doesn't share you hate? And I don't use that word lightly. But its on full display here by serveral posters. Oh well. It is a pity. Life is too short.

Hi
These are the books that never made the cut when the Bible was put together?
The Gospel of Thomas makes no mention of Jesus' death and resurrection. Furthermore, salvation only comes by understanding his teachings and not by believing in his resurrection:
"Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death"
No wonder the early church leaders left that one out!
They also left out the Gospel Of Peter which is strange because as far as I know, it provides the only eye-witness account of Jesus emerging from the tomb.
Jesus came out from the tomb with two angels and was followed by a talking cross. Once in the open, Jesus and the angels grew to a height of thousands of feet until their heads were lost in the heavens.
Angels? Talking cross? Giant Jesus?
Well, according to the account, this was witnessed by a Roman centurion and his soldiers (usually eighty men) and the Jewish Elders. Given who the witnesses were, you'd have thought there would be some records for this miraculous event. Turns out that there are none.
Ah well, perhaps it was just a made-up story.
The "Gospel of Peter" was written just before 200 AD, and was nothing more than an embellishment of the previous "Gospels" or "proto-Gospels". The intent being to lend credence to the fantastic and elaborate structure of reinforcing trinity and immaculate conception. It has been concluded by scholars that it was not written by Peter, but after his death.

I know, I know.... You're gonna argue that's my "indoctrination" talking, but it isn't. It's a biological fact.
Don't get me wrong, Mrs RR enjoys a little butt action now & then. But that doesn't mean it's natural.
Don't kid yourself.
Again with saying natural things aren't natural.
You fundies never do get it.

It has been observed in nature, ergo it is natural.

Your words:
"Even with plumbing parts there are male & female parts...
One of you, you & your fiancť, is feminine."

And so you believe that females can only have butts or mouths.

No "doctor" can be this stupid
You think addiction isn't physical? Especially opiate addiction which we were specifically talking about?
It was one thing for you not to know Ritalin has the adverse affect on adults
It was one thing to claim you gave ten percent of your money to a church where you knew the priest was stealing the money for himself
But for a "doctor" not to know opiate addiction is both physical and mental? WOW. Either you were about as bad and ignorant of a doctor and Christian as one can be when you claimed to be one or you simply are a bigger fraud than I thought. Considering the patients it would have affected, I actually find myself rooting for the latter.
Hey Friend,
Iím not sure any of the gang are what they say they are or even live where they say they do Skombolis. Something doesnít ring right about more than one of them.

Just an observation.

As I recall, we got into this because you caused me of taking away (or attempting to take away) certain rights of people.

So your answer is its ok to do something you claim is not ok as long as its Christians. Got it. Thanks for you showing that your word is worthless. As long as God gives me breath I will speak out against anyone being a bigot towards any group. You call it piling on, I call it standing up for the gospel of Jesus Christ that ains proves he hates. Sad that.

Ya'll make it sound like these folks were falsly invited to a party and then mowed down while they munched corn on the cob.
And that simply isn't the case.
The genocide of the native tribes of the America's was began by the Spanish as far as outsiders is concerned. But in truth the natives warred against each other for century's. And we don't know how many that took part in the genocide of the North American Indian were in fact American Nationals ...surely a great number were immigrants. But I can say with absolute certainty that not a single one of you can look upon the heart of anyone and declare if they are a people of faith ...or what faith.
The wheels of history were in motion. There is nothing anyone was going to do to stop it. It is what it is.
And since you brought up the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and sticking with that time period & WWII, it was the Empire of Japan that called us out.
How many civilians died at Pearl? How many civilians died around the world at the hands of the Empire of Japan?
The Emire simply bit off more than it could chew.
And lets not forget the many beheadings, death marchs and other forms of torture committed against the Allied forces.
How many civilians died in the sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-boat? Europe was screaming for aid. The USA didn't just march in and start shooting the place up.
This war had to come to an end ...it was enough.
I'm not advocated the wholesale slaughter of innocents ...but damn, we should turn away while Americans are slaughtered early on a Sunday morning ...or sent to the depths of the icy seas by an unknown hunter.
.. with a few exceptions, your post is completely accurate ..

.. specifically, I question whether Nagasaki was necessary ..

.. the Spanish were responsible for the slaughter of innocents in both North and South America. Did Christians in Spain complain about the massacres? Were they morally outraged? Or, did they condone the conquering, remain silent, even endorse it ??..

.. again, my primary contention is that Christian leaders have been responsible for many atrocities throughout history and it continues today. Are churches speaking out against the drones or the civilian deaths in Iraq or other mid-east countries? If not, why aren't they? Wouldn't that be a moral imperative ??..

.. believers claim that without a God, humans would have poor morals. Isn't it only fair that the behavior of Christians, the lack of dissent by churches regarding civilian deaths also be subject to scrutiny? What would Jesus say or do ??..

.. people can do better than this ..

None. I do think (and hope) that we seek the same thing, the truth. Many years ago before I gave my life to Christ I loved something called absolute zero. My thinking is no matter who where what faith or no faith this is something that everyone agrees on, the coldest temp. As far as I know and understand it also can't be reached. But I like things like that that are true no matter what. Much of what is spoken of here are things many don't agree on. I can't prove to anyone here I've met Jesus, nor can my wife. But I don't have to. All we have to do is live the best way we know how. In our church, Protestant non-denominational we have quite a few teachings on the history of the Protestant Reformation. I have no doubt that anyone in a postion of power and authority, be it a church, gov, ect that seeks to stop the truth will fail in the end.
Agreed. You have no need to prove your belief to me. Thanks for your opinions too.

OK. It appeared you were not understanding what I was saying.
I don't happen to believe what the church structure, defined by Roman wannabe gods, has deceived the masses with to this day is correct or honest. In fact, the earliest writings(before the "accepted canons") are in direct conflict with those canons. Apostolic succession was NEVER taught by Jesus(just one example). It was an invention of the wannabe rulers of the masses through theocracy...exactly the opposite of the message of Jesus-who taught that your relationship with the all is personal-you are "the "priest"...and as an individual, "YOU" are personally responsible to seek the truth-one which no "wannabe god" can attain for you.
Why were the "actual words" of Jesus not [all] included in the "accepted" canons? Should you believe Jesus' words-or the men who argued for hundreds of years what "they" wanted you to know?
Let he who has eyes to see the truth-see. Let he who has ears to hear the truth-hear.
Now you talking about history, so now you going to have to get specific.

What earlier writings before the accepted Canon of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John you talking about? what writings about Jesus that you know of that was written BEFORE Matthew Mark Luke and John?

Before I address the rest of your points in you writings, I need you to be specific about those other writings first. Because those other writings BEFORE the canon Gospels you mention is the key to addressing your other points. And I quite curious, very curious, what books you talking about.

I don't know. Maybe some are children-terrorists (they DO give machine guns to little kids over there), maybe some are collateral damage, maybe some are accidents. Again, I don't know.
How do you expect me to explain that? I'm not authorizing these drone attacks, Obama is - at a rate four times higher than Bush. Ask him.
<quoted text>
I was not there when Indians were getting slaughtered. But I DO know that lots of people protested against it - mostly Christian people. I would've protested it, too. Senseless slaughter is NOT the traitor of most people.
<quoted text>
Elaborate. That's pretty vague, I don't wanna give a vague response.
<quoted text>
Perhaps you're unaware of Christian protests such as those brought on by Washington, Lincoln and Martin Luther King. Those are huge and historical, but throughout history, Christians have protested evil and atrocity.
However, there are some that are loud. Really loud. Like the WBC idiots. They make the news while others don't.
Consider that before condemning our sense of morality.
.. Christian morality is not being condemned, the cause of their inaction and the silence of their churches is being questioned ..

.. you are finding reasons to justify the killing of children with robots. This is unacceptable because we know the civilian kill ratio is 1 to 10 ..

.. yes, Obama has ordered more drone attacks than Bush and I condemn this action ..

.. my point again: neither Christians or their churches are protesting civilian casualties in the mid-east. This is morally reprehensible. What would Jesus say or do ??..

Yes indeed. Its what brought me to my wife. It does hurt sometimes. Our first date was to a center where Messianic Jews worship. The Rabbi of that center was disowned by his family for it.
