Yes, it is you. And yes, you are a word guy - obstreperous troglodyte.

You obviously know the Dimwit well already.

Perhaps it's because there's nothing in the Bible that says God gave us free will. That's right, in the whole Bible the subject of God-given free will is conspicuous by its absence.
Contrast that with the fact that there are scriptures that speak against quite clearly against free will:
We all know about the incidents where God intervened by hardening people's hearts (Pharaoh & King of Heshbon).
Romans 9:18 tells us how "God chooses to make some people refuse to listen".
Romans 11:32 - "God consigns all men to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them".
Isaiah 63:17 - "Why, Lord, dost thou cause us to stray from thy ways?".
Ephesians 1:11 - Tells us how we were chosen in advance by God and that everything works out in accordance with his plan.
There are other scriptures but it gets tedious hearing pretty much the same thing over and over again. It seems to me that despite what Christians say, according to the Bible, the much-vaunted concept free will doesn't really have a place in God's world.
Great post! I've added your citations to my list of lists: scriptures contradicting the doctrine of free will.

Dan Barker made a list of terms of interest that appear nowhere in the bible. I guess that we can add free will to it.

“The next time believers tell you that "separation of church and state" does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word "trinity." The word "trinity" appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin. If they are still unfazed (or unphrased) by this, then add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural, Transcendence, Afterlife, Deity, Divinity, Theology, Monotheism, Missionary, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Christianity, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Catholic, Pope, Cardinal, Catechism, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation, Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, the Lord's Prayer, Good Friday, Doubting Thomas, Advent, Sunday School, Dead Sea, Golden Rule, Moral, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Atheism, Apostasy, Conservative (Liberal is in), Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible.”- Dan Barker

Liar. Obviously.
There is no way you knew that Lacez was referring Happy Lesbo. None of us did. Why? Because any number of us might have been the one to tell him about you.
Le_Le and I both assumed that you would think it was us, because it easily could have been. We've both gone on record calling you a liar that twists and mangles the words of others.
Or it could have been Catcher or Tide. They have both dealt with you at that level as well.
Had Lacez claimed that somebody called you a Dimwit in a PM, you would know who did it. But calling you a liar? It could have been any number of us.
I knew it was her because she tipped her hand in a post to B-man talking about how things were different on tues (without coming out and saying that was the day I started posting again) and it was obvious she was attempting to blame me even though I ignored you until you posted to me

HL is very manipulative. When someone stated someone was basically doing the same thing by t-mail, it wasn't hard to figure out who it was. And Tide and Catcher don't strike me as the gossip types. I think they would post it right to me or right to Lacez about me if they had something to say. HL likes to do her dirty work under the radar

And I don't lie on Topix. Never have. You on the other hand lie constantly. You lie after I give you your posts and keep asking for me to re-post the posts I have already posted! You feign ignorance. You change stories. You give preposterous explanations that people who once defended you on now had to see later that you were lying all along. You bigotry has been exposed for all to see. No amount of lies can change that now. You have marginalized yourself is the ironic thing. Coming here worked out great for you huh?

Christianity would have been forgotten long ago without the help of a series of imperialistic governments compelling people to accept it.

people are free moral agents to do good or evil. If God stepped in every time someone plots evil, then that person free will have been taken away.
Not at all. If I the police stepped in to foil some "evil" plot, would the conspirators have lost their freewill, or merely had its expression thwarted? Obviously, free will doesn't mean the ability to express that will.

What do you think free will means? How would you know if you had free will or not? What would it be like if your will were programmed into you? Would it still be free? Would it feel any different that it does now.

If you study this matter a little, you'll discover that you really don't know just what you mean by free will, and have no way to determine whether it exists. For all we know, our wills are determined by neural electrochemical processes, and are in principle as predictable as eclipses.

God allows evil doers to prevail sometimes, God allows good to prevail sometimes. One man does evil kidnaps 3 girls for 10yrs. Another man do good by giving part of his kidney to save the life of a stranger.
Exactly the same as if there were no god. How shrewd of it to always do exactly what a nonexistent god would do.

No. Perfect would be if there were no will to hate in the world.

Look at how deformed your thinking is under the influence of your church.

You're criticizing another poster's comprehension? How clueless can you be?
You wrote "gentile" for "genital" and then missed it when it was shown back to you.
And you've yet to comprehend that addiction is psychological and dependence is physiological despite being told repeatedly. These are both just in the last day or two.
And it's a recurrent problem for you. How many times have I had to call you out on your abysmal reading comprehension? These are all examples of your useless mind in action from just the last three months or so:

What's funny to me is that when you can't do that with me, you phrase it along the lines that you can't be bothered. Obviously you are lying again.
Dependence is addiction

How were you ever a doctor??

Once AGAIN

DEFINITION

drug addiction,

a condition characterized by an overwhelming desire to continue taking a drug to which one has become habituated through repeated consumption because it produces a particular effect, usually an alteration of mental status. Addiction is usually accompanied by a compulsion to obtain the drug, a tendency to increase the dose, a psychologic or PHYSICAL dependence, and detrimental consequences for the individual and society.

ADDICTION is defined as PHYSICAL DEPENDENCE as well as psychological

Are you just this stupid or this stubborn "doctor"

Good ol' "It Aint Necessarily True strikes again! LOL

I am gonna call you AINT from here on out. Maybe add a "t" in front of it..ya know, for Teddy!

When I went to our equivalent to your John Edwards (Anthony, from Whispers from Beyond), he gave me messages from several of my ancestors who had passed over, and there were no doubts about who he was referring to :) I still have the rose in my closet of treasures as a reminder of that special time in my life.....
That's a sad story, but I'm glad you could find peace with it.

Gee TAINT, seems like National hotlines, doctors, medical dictionaries, treatment centers, etc all understand it is a PHYSICAL ADDICTION also. Man it must have been a joy to have been a patient of yours when you were too prideful and stubborn to admit you messed up or were too ignorant and blamed your patients for not following your instructions

Maybe now that you are retired you can learn to be a well-informed doctor that actually knows important things about the medicine he prescribed? I mean it won't help all the lives you probably helped ruin, assuming if anybody got addicted it was their fault for being weak, but hey at least you got their money right?

I've started ignoring him, he's not worth my time.
At least the others here have some shred of understanding of the sentences posted.

Thank you, it's easy to take it on when I've death with similar insults on other topics all my life.
Nothing can really get through the skin I've developed for this.

I also enjoy showing how vile these "loving" people can be.

Today's Prayer

Oh Lord, Help me be strong and courageous. Empower, lift up, and encourage me that I will not be terrified of any thing, person nor circumstance, neither let me be discouraged, for You, the Lord my God will be with me wherever I go (Joshua 1:9). No matter what I face today, I know that You are with me and Your Holy Spirit lives within me and has sealed me unto the day of redemption. I know that the blood of Jesus has covered my sin and washed me white as snow, that I may be righteous in Him and live unto Him. I praise You and thank You Lord Almighty for Your strength, power, grace, mercy, and love. May You be glorified in all the earth, and through my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Prime time with God
