You might want to check with Trifecta on that one...he claims it is growing like hot cakes...that Christianity doesn't need us little heathens.
Christians contradict each other often.

Truth is not contradictory.

<quoted text>Thanks for reminding us about Rosh Hashanah... As far as the calendars, I did a study on the calendars earlier this year and it was pretty interesting that no matter how much the Romans or the Egyptians contributed to Calendar events... they swore up and down that they weren't attempting to follow a Jewish, 7-day calendar... interesting how the Roman empire went from 6-day week calendar models to an 8 day one... back and forth changes. Eventually settled back on 7 days. Not to mention that Jesus was born in the B.C. era.
The Jews would only use the Roman calendar for business purposes with the outside only. It's been a while so I would have to look at my notes to get back up to par with it. Headed out after next post... I'm kind of tired myself but making myself go to the gym... Take care.
Good post.
Thanks

Some would say that you are a "Sunday Christian" because of the language that you use here on Topix.
Some might think that you are a "Sunday Christian" because of your drinking until you have a hang over.
Or did you mean...there are some that are not a Christian just like you so they must be "Sunday Christians"?
There was only one "Real Christian" and he was a Jew.
Legend has it he was executed by the Romans as a traitor to the Empire. Some say he survived the execution.

My son's father died when he was 5...some months later I found him in tears. When I asked what was wrong...he said...
"I don't have a family anymore."
My heart broke...not because he was being raised by a single mom...but society had taught him the wrong concept of family.
Family is about more than just a mom and a dad...it is about people who love you...care for you...stand beside you through all that life has to offer. It is about friends who will listen...laugh with you...cry with you. It is about those people that you can depend on.
My son now knows what family is all about...those people that love you and that you love in return.
I didn't choose for my husband to die RR...I had no plans of raising my son in a single parent home...speaking from experience...that is a tough job. However...simply because I did lose my husband...didn't make my family any less worthy than yours...
This is why I didn't want to discuss it with you...you denigrate the hard work...the sacrifices that I made...to give my son a family. BTW...not just me...every single parent (male or female) that has done double duty in life to provide for their children.
Go screw yourself RR.
I respect your situation and I'm sorry for your loss. But if you've read any of my posts about single parents you'd notice that I always talk about "baby mamas" and "dead beat sperm donors".

I know trajedy can strike anybody at any time, that's not who I'm talking about.

You said it yourself, that you didn't plan for your husband to die. I take that as you planned on having a "normal" family; wife, husband, kid(s). Am I incorrect in that assumption?

I myself am a broken home. I left my wife 10 years ago because she wasn't a good person. She broke our wedding vows one too many times and I just couldn't take her abuse anymore. I did it, Annie. I broke a home. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do was watch my 5 year old son in my rear view mirror screaming, begging dad to come back. I'm getting teary eyed thinking about it now. I hate that choice I made, but in the long run it has paid off tenfold. I have full custody of my kids, they only lived with their egg-donor for a few years while I got myself established again. They now are star students at school, both with higher than 3.5 GPA's, great attitudes, obedient, smart, funny, you name a good quality, they got it.

I do not and have not denegrated anybody's hard work, if you took it that way then I'm sorry to have mislead you.

I denegrate the people that don't work, that don't care for their kids and that don't take responsibility for their own actions.

I understand your anger on this topic, if you want to ignore it or drop it, it's your call. You're the boss.

He had been defending Christianity and bashing non-Christians for at least two years.

Brag on God!
You are right though I have defended them for quite some time now. I find them much more morally sound, friendly and probably most importantly adult like. I just get sick of the childishness of atheists and agnostics.

Now let me just say that nothing is ever 100% there are good and bad in both arenas. I dont bash good atheists and I bash bad christians.

Not that you'd give a shit about the truth of the matter but.........

Yes...I used the word condemned...
My usage of that word is because it is my belief that you condemn someone when you make that prediction that one will "burn in hell" if they break the rules of your faith. It is condemning someone when you think they are a "pervert" if they are not just like you. It is condemnation when you relegate someone to a second-class human being...a POS...because you read something in a book that tells you they are dog vomit...an abomination...perverted...etc. ..etc.
It has often been said..."it is the act" that is sinful...ask your brothers and sisters about that one.
You judged this man based on very little knowledge...you came to the conclusion that his family suffered because of his remaining silent...he stayed in the closet in other words...a place where many Christians believe that all gay people should stay. Again...ask your own brothers and sisters about that.
Did your Sunday school teacher teach you that Mormons were despicable? Did your preacher stand behind the pulpit and pound it in to your that Mormons are a cult...condemned to hell...judged to be unworthy?
I understand that...at one time people tried to teach me that Baptist weren't Christians either...they would surely burn in hell.
You...have judged and condemned him in your very words when you said...
"He had worldly sorrow, a game loser."
"Using an unsuspecting wife and children is despicable."
"I guarantee he indulged in his sin betimes."
You know none of this...you are guessing...assigning his life as to how you want it to be. You conjured up his life in your mind...so that is the way it must have been???
Here is another phrase you used..."his heart was unchanged". Maybe he prayed for a change...and God didn't answer.
This post is ridiculous. So God had to keep him from gayness? It was Gods fault? Mormon is a cult and they added to the bible, a strict no no. The preponderance of the evidence is not conjuring rather it led me to my conclusion. I cant condemn or judge, I observed and commented, his conscience did that to himself. God will judge and Gods law made him feel bad because he wanted life insurance yet he wanted manlove, a transgression, like it or not. He used a woman and family for a cover while he lusted away not quiting the religion as many here have done to escape the guilt and shame. You don't seem to concerned about the housewives who contracted hiv etc and died. Do you? You just want to do the condemning of those who chime in to agree with the word of God. You think religion is bad because you cant have it your way, like burgerking. You want the best of both worlds, it don't work that way. Oh and youre gullible enough to think that this guy never indulged in his lusts, you really are a sucker.

Your here to mock and ridicule and spread your hatred for christians. My only reason for being here is to joke around and have fun. Maybe you missed my post but I said I dont know much about the bible other then its main messages. Now maybe I would add something if I didnt have to defend everything I say to you and others, childish and continous rants of liar, asshole, moron etc. etc.. If i didnt have to defend my positions to made up definitions you come up with to try and categorize me as less then you. But as it stands I got better things to do then to call names all day long everyday defend my positions to your twisting, additions and subtractions of my words. No, I just as soon limit my participation in your childish nonsense if you dont mind........

Of course. There will always be opposition.

As in?
Some might think that you are a "Sunday Christian" because of your drinking until you have a hang over.
Of course they'd say that. People will always find an excuse to denigrate.
Or did you mean...there are some that are not a Christian just like you so they must be "Sunday Christians"?
No. I mean the people that are not loyal to their beliefs, their traditions and their family. People that "party harty" all the time, get stoned of their ass or shit-faced drunk, then go clubbing, meet a stranger at the club and have sex with them, cheat on their taxes, lie to their boss, steal from a 7-11 then go to church on Sunday and "praise GAWD" with the rest of the fakes.

That's one of the main reasons why I don't go to church anymore. Because of the fakes, the "Sunday Christians" that don't live a Christian life AT ALL except on Sunday morning.

No one will go back two years to find it...But we can say what we all thought...
