Au contraire.

Being literate and reading without bias give me the gift of discernment.

You, on the other hand, have a sever confirmation bias that causes you to transform whatever you read into what you want it to say. You, the believer, are the one lacking the gift of discernment.

It WAS the 80's.....
They didn't even show hair for a time. Now they show shaved and in all its glory.

Playboy has been a big advocate of the first amendment in that regard.

We are a spirit, we live in a fleshly human body, we have a soul. God sent his son Jesus to perform miracles. This is quite simple.
Thank you for sharing your mythology.

<quoted text> Not correct my friend, belief IN the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus is the only path to salvation and spending eternity with God....

You can't use the scriptures against itself Shrink.
You can hardly find one that isn't contradicted by another somewhere else:

[1] Man is saved by faith, not works ("For by grace are ye saved through faith... not of works." - Ephesians 2:8-9)
[2] Except when he is ("Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only." - James 2:24)
==========
[1] Man can be righteous (Genesis 7:1, Job 2:3, James 5:16)
[2] Man can't be righteous (Romans 3:10)
==========
[1] Men have seen God ("So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared." - Genesis 32:30)
[2] And also, no man has seen God ("No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known." - John 1:18)
==========
[1] Honor thy father and mother.- Exodus 20:12
[2] If any man come to me, and hate not his father and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.- Luke 14:26
=========
Jesus' final utterance
[1]“When he had received the drink, Jesus said,“It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." - John 19:30
[2]“Jesus called out with a loud voice,“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last." - Luke 23:46
[3]“About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice,“Eloi, Eloi, a lama sabachthani?” which means,“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”- Matthew 27:46
=========
[1] Every word of god is true (Proverbs 30:5)
[2] God deceives prophets (1 Kings 22:23) and the wicked (2 Thess. 2:11-12)
=========
Jesus to the Sanhedrin when asked if he was the messiah
[1] "I am" (Mark 14:62)
[2] "You have said so" (Matthew 26:64)
[3] "If I tell you, you will not believe" (Luke 22:67-8)

Your present dispute is no different. Some of you produce scriptures identifying Jehovah and Jesus as one, some find contradictory scriptures saying they are distinct. Your bible allows you to create whatever theology you like, just as long as you submit.

<quoted text>not at all. Christians are already now dying for Christ. Muslims are already dying for Mohammed. And Gays are already being killed for their right to be Gay.

All I'm saying is, it's going to get worse for all three groups. A lot worse.

I would never advocate murdering anyone. Jesus Christ would not murder a Gay or a Muslim just because He disagreed with them. But Jesus surely would not bite His tongue about the sinfulness of their belief and practice.
Your Jesus would be so proud of you.

People like Here For Now are not going to like the future one bit. Silencing their church democratically is the goal, since it's their ideas that are so toxic. This is done not with a gun or an act of Congress, but with a campaign of contradictory ideas. We are privileged to be a part of that.
In the USA, Christian Fundamentalists have the same right to free speech as the KKK, Neo-Nazis and other hate groups.

What would you know about spirituality? You believe in ghosts and call that spirituality. How is that more spiritual than believing in astrology, crystal balls, or Ouija boards?

Sprituality is an intuition of connectivity with the cosmos and with all of life combined with a sense of mystery, awe and gratitude.

You hate the world, and despise your flesh, and can't wait to leave both. As a result, you live life like you're waiting for it to end. You feel like a prisoner here and dream of your death and escape.

You're not spiritual. You're spiritually dead, and I wish that you would stop using the word. You defile it when you apply it to yourself and people like you.

It is this reason that I do not believe a single one who claims such "belief/faith". Both foolish statements. Time on earth is brief compared to eternity. Part of the operation of God is for man to reproduce until the amount of souls he wants is complete. All the rhetoric notwithstanding, those who trust in the Lord will not be confounded. Unbelievers have nothing to look forward to.
