It is strange to me that people put themselves, their church(es) and other "Christians" above the teachings of Jesus.

While I know a number of loving followers of the teachings of Jesus who call themselves Christian, it seems they have done so IN SPITE OF "Christianity" NOT BECAUSE OF IT.
Agreed.

We have more or less the same ideas, but use the language a little differently. You are noting the difference between the theological side of religion, something which I have little personal interest in, and the behavioral or social aspects of it, which I care about intensely.

One's personal journey is a private matter. If you choose to believe in a god - and perhaps to call it Jesus - that's fine with me. That's how Christians define themselves, and by that definition, despite what the members of the hive say, I have no problem with Christians or Christianity. That kind of religious walk is not a problem to society, and is none of my business.

But once people begin carrying water for the church, they become a problem to the rest of us, which is very much our business. Even then, it is not the indoctrinee that is the principle problem. It's the church that keeps producing them and turning them out into the neighborhoods.

So looking back at your post, I would word the same idea with which I agreed like this:

'It is strange to me that people put their church above the teachings of Jesus. I know many followers of Christ who still love all people. They have escaped the influence of the church.'

There's a 1978 treaty between Mexico and the U.S. that allows Mexico to refuse to extradite any criminal (including U.S. citizens hiding there) back to the U.S *if* there is the remotest chance they will be handed a death sentence for their crime. I have a suspicious mind when it comes to stalker a-holes.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
You're another defender of the church. There is no other reason for you to be systematically demeaning its critics. As I said, it is a VERY Christian behavior. You swarm like hornets when you feel like your nest is threatened.

Yeah you do, skank.

I only expose hypocrites for what they are.
But by the most amazing of coincidences, they all just happen to be detractors of the church. Hypocrisy from other members of the hive seems to escape your notice.

I turned on you fkrs when you showed what depths you were willing to go to just to censor someone who disagreed with you. Censoring opinion is the act of a tyrant. There is no room in this world for dictators.
It is impossible for me to censor you. Only Topix mods can do that. So, your argument is liquid stool.

Meanwhile, the swarm is buzzing "stalker! stalker!" in an effort to diminish my anti-ecclesiastical message, and you've got your ugly ass out there brandishing your stinger with the rest of them.

Is that what you mean by censoring? I doubt it. Not when its you.

No, skank, as I said, you turn on those who criticize the church or who criticize the vespids doing its dirty work, and only on them, making you a toady for the church. And you're happy to try to "censor" me with the rest of them.

Is that what you meant by tyrant and dictator? I doubt it. Not when its you.

So who's the hypocrite?

You've proven often enough that it is you who is insecure otherwise you wouldn't feel the need to censor silly, harmless Patty. A strong man, solid in his convictions, doesn't feel threatened by dissenting opinion.
What are you buzzing about now, skank? I wrote maybe three posts to that lunatic altogether. I scrolled past her garbage like I do Dr. Shrink for the same reason.

As for me being insecure, well, LOL.

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, Today I want to pray and lift up all the backsliding Christians in the world. Reach down and through their circumstances, other people, and Your Holy Spirit, prick their hearts and stir their consciences that they would be drawn back to You. May You receive their praise as they see Your hand at work through their repentance and receive glory and honor through their repentance and renewed lives. May Your will be done. If there be any way You want to use me to touch the life of a discouraged or out of touch Christian, then please use me to impact a life for good. Give me the words and the way and the unction to know who and what. In Jesus name, amen

Encouraging Words....

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

<quoted text>You really think every opinion needs to be prefaced or qualified?

The context alone made it obvious as someone would have to be clairvoyant to know for a fact

Its standard deductive reasoning.

Where was I wrong?

Did you come here with the INTENT of making Christian friends?

I'm trying to go easy on ya kid but honestly, your posts are so goofy. I know you want to be seen an intelligent. But you are waaay over-reaching if you think anyone is going ot see you as the intellectual teacher

Try to have some sane understanding of your limits please
You're trying to make yourself look like your intelligence matches no other, but it does not, for you cannot comprehend the simplest things sometimes. That isn't opinion, that is fact, which can be backed up by your posting style.

To make a claim and/or statement is not to provide your opinion, for if it were, all everyone ever did he was make opinions.

Skom, you have to learn how reality and the English language works. If you make a positive claim, you are not stating an opinion.

<quoted text>Kid, your dating life couldn't possibly interest me less

And I don't even know you. Why would I waste any mental energy desiring you to be unhappy in your relationship?

I know, I know you are gay so I must secretly hope your relationship fails

You love being the victim don't you?
And yet you paint yourself the victim at every turn.
Just look at you whining and complaining about all the atheists in the thread making you look bad.

Also, a lot of people haven't been able to adapt their social skills to work on the internet. The loss of sending and receiving body language really puts certain types of people at a disadvantage, such as those that don't have good analytical skills.
Understandable.
I also choose to hang around people who can have discussions that exercise the mind, unlike the conversations I have here. Though the ones I have here do transfer over to those I have in real life, providing a certain comic relief.

Oh my. First of all, Duane has no hate in him <sweet talker you>, Ians and Catcher are funny as and Shrink, if thinking of me as a lesbian makes you feel better about the fact that you will never have me, go ahead I think of it as a compliment. Christians are sadly delusional and GOD help them all. Religion is the most pointless and damaging thing ever invented and some of the discussions and complete lack of any kind of love or tolerance are recorded proof of such.

Oh and gay peeps are frikken awesome just as they were made, free will silly humans, free will.

:D :p 0:) <3

Serah really has gone downhill.
I think that may have something to do with Rider and Hick-up calling me a stalker, which seems to have pushed one of her buttons. She apparently has an issue with some Jessica Wright, whom she keeps referring to in posts to me:

Some people would say that we should be understanding and tolerant of thing like that, and of her blame shifting regarding her guilt over Andrew, and just absorb it all. I don't agree. I think that she needs to held accountable for her behavior. What incentive does she have to be more reasonable if we coddle her? I don't really care what these people's issues and problems are. They have lost my empathy long ago.

Sure, they are just being what their church wants them to be, and perhaps that was a done deal before they reached the age of understanding and responsibility.

But still, I expect people to meet certain standards of decency and fairness, and I think that she should be held accountable for failing. Serah's a big girl now. Yes, she's just a child intellectually and emotionally, a typical product of her infantilizing church. But isn't it time for her to grow up? Serah needs to be spanked and sent to her room.

Have we discussed that infantilizing aspect recently? If not, here's a discussion of it from February:
