In what universe was your opening line apropos? In case you didn't notice, the continual line of tragedies which you allege your life has been(not that I believe you for a second) does not impress me. It is not a badge of honour.
Do you attempt to cause grief by advertising your grief? You do indeed, you are a griefing troll.
Do you attempt to derail by alleging that someone is stalking you based on the notion that someone viewed information voluntarily placed in the public domain thereby causing mock concern? You do indeed, you are a concern troll.
If indeed all of these things did happen to people close to you, i.e. your uncle dying while you fed him, or your father dying while you fed him or people burning to death...all things which are your stock-in-trade as a 'personality', I would be more inclined to ask your local prosecutor to examine the deaths than to give you any sympathy because you obviously relish the attention.
You sound like an "angel of mercy". That's a legal euphemism btw, not a compliment.
What do I think of myself? Well how long do you have? I'm a paraplegic ex soldier, tours of Ireland, Sierra Leone, The Balkans, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan. Paralysed in the lower left quadrant, wounded to the forehead, sinus cavity mouth and throat, witnessed a lot of death and gore. When I was injured people died and I lived, I suffered a certain amount of guilt for that for a while, learned to walk again, learned to talk agian. Went back to school got married, started a new career, had a child. My life now is actually better than when I was serving and able bodied.
....never prayed once!
The number of times I have mentioned this on topix is probably in single figures. You appear to define yourself by the misery which surrounds you, and you meet it with a smile on your face and a prayer in your heart...poor you. Poor, poor you.
Don't forget to give god the glory for all the great stuff that allegedly happend to your loved ones.
Hi.. Nice to meet you..

Wow! Great post..
Thank you for sharing..

You see what I see in Serah..
She is doomed in the name of Christ.. And she thinks she gets a free pass..because of it??

Unbelievable!

And: "As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion."

So, thank you :) I would never have known that.

LOL.
You mock the wisdom of the scriptures?
That one caught my eye, too. Apparently, anything passes for wisdom if it's in the book and written sententiously, however inane.
"It's better let a fool kiss you than to let a kiss fool you."
"A kiss is shopping upstairs for downstairs merchandise."
"A man with five dicks will have pants that fit like a glove."
Any of those could be in the bible.
Yeah, it was getting annoying, her quoting proverbs out of context. I challenged her on it before, but she babbled something incoherent - finally G_O_D explained it to me.

So then I thought I'd just make fun of how ridiculous it is. You can get such good at advice anywhere - and better, to be honest, since we live in very different times.

.. interesting analysis, Barrister. Why does Serah continue to hold hands with posters who deem homosexuals immoral abominations ??..
.. in the process, she has chosen to reject and condemn the personhood of her own brother. I do not understand any of it ..
I do not understand it either..
She
seems desperate..
Serah has taken homophobia to a new level for me..
Is this really the thought process concerning gays..today??

Makes me sick to think it is..
Shame on her!

It is when you gratuitously insert your god into the discussion.
<quoted text>
There you go again. When I discuss environmental policy, the words "God" and "Jesus" don't pop up except in reference to the contribution that Christian doctrine makes to the problem.
<quoted text>
That's Christian nihilism, which contributes to the problem.

Can you leave him out of your conversations with me?
<quoted text>
We can converse, but as soon as you make a comment that assumes the existence of Jesus, you're talking to yourself.

<quoted text>
That's incorrect. I just ask you to take into account that I don't believe what you believe, and to leave your religious beliefs out of nonreligious discussions with me. If you don't, the discussion will be about that instead. Notice that we have never discussed the earth at all because of your choice to sick the term "God-given" into your comment. If that's what you prefer to talk about, then you're going about it very well. But if the earth was what was on your mind, you made a mistake.
I have thanked you – said I am a quick learner when it comes to the answers you have given – and have no need to ask more at this point re 'why do you - non believers - target the Christian faith'?

Between all the posts I have said all I need to regardless of what we both do or don't believe, but what I share in here is for the very reason I entered the forum. It's title. If I wanted to prove anything I would have had an entirely different approach. So I have moved on as mentioned.

What I deliver to science re the earth has been done long before I knew this thread existed, and continues to... and like I said, nothing will change that either. Despite your suggestion to give up on that aspect - science - that's what they said to Leonardo da Vinci when they didn't understand him either. And you are right... I do not have to share a belief system with physics unless called for. All that matters there is that those who I work with understand very well. Your comment was really worth the smile!

I can also understand why you call things circular as well... if we were to continue that's what we'd be doing with these posts. That's not progress. That's bowing to one another's beliefs and neither of us do that. The essence of this thread is to share that faith. I do. So again, thank you and take care... it has been interesting. But never an intention of disrespect to either of us.

Good Saturday morning to you Ians, I will always be ahead of you there...

Why would Christians be flouting their beliefs in public if they weren't interested in the responses of non-Christians? Or do you think that we stalked you to find this thread and hacked into it?
There is no Christian privilege any more. The public space used to be Christian. It's targets, especially atheists and gays, were run into closets. Its god was splattered over the currency and stuck into the national motto and Pledge. Criticism of Christianity and "blasphemy" were censored.
That's all changing now. Humanists are ascending, and our values will supplant those older ones. This thread isn't yours, and your sensibilities don't matter to me now any more than mine ever have ever mattered to you.
Exactly!
Thanks

Perhaps I can help. Allow me to condense that for you:
"The bible says it, I believe it, and that settles it"
The thinking is done.
All too often it isn't even what the Bible says and often isn't even in the Bible.

I think you're describing something called 'cherry-picking' or 'quote-mining' where you keep the bits you like and disregard the bits you don't.
What you just said seems to fly in the face of every christian who has ever said, "you must read the bible as a whole, you cannot just pick isolated parts".
So which is it? Keep what I want or take the bible as a whole?
I am not the master of your mind. It up to you what you believe or disbelieve. I share it all with you good, bad or indifferent and the rest is left up to you as a individual.
Only you can decide what you want for yourself.
Just sayin it is my opinion only.

I think he could do better. If I were a god that wanted to be known and loved, you'd know me, and I'd be irresistible. I can't even find your god, and I spent five years searching.
I found something better than a deity from a book.
