This is what I mean btw
Why would your vested interest cause you to post the information for others?
And you are claiming it had nothing to do with the fact that ians lives in Mexico and myself and others have given him a hard time about it?
And I agree, this is a silly exchange. Some things speak for themselves anyway. If you are fine with leaving it at this for your true motive, I am too. Quite frankly I think it illustrates both our positions perfectly.
sigh...LeLe made a comment about Mexico...I share with her what I had read.

I agree...I think it illustrates how much better of a position that you hold than I do.

I am out of here...I have other things to do...like my virtual workout.

That's an OT law and means nothing anymore acording to Christians.
Well Ben, I cannot tell you what Christians use or believe that attend churches and such.

Here is what I can tell you I practice as much as my ability allows me too the old and the new testaments of the commadaments. I am a long way from perfect ya know. Quite honestly do not associate with a lot of people in my personal life. So never assume with me.

Seriously Skom. Always trying to make people leave here ... You'd love if Ians left. I sometimes wonder why he even bothers.
You are simply a menace. Honestly. Just look at this post of yours- taunting him to "give it up".
Thanks for your interest. Le_Le, but there's no chance of my leaving the thread unless I get bored with it. As long as Skombolis continues acting out, I'll find at least a little time to return to slap him around.

Why do I bother? Good question. All I can tell you is that the man is so repulsive to me that I feel the ongoing need to slap him around, which feels right to do.

I didn't ask for proof because I felt I knew that it wasn't true. Maybe I should have but I have taken your word at what you have said about your job.
Next time I won't assume...I will ask for proof.
Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
Yet you asked me for proof on how I knew Ians was a disgraced doctor who was sued

So by your explanation here, you must have felt there was a real possibility that was true about him

I am glad to see you feel that way. I too think it may very well be the case. It would certainly explain why he started getting rid of patients at the end of his career who he claimed were not following his instructions and why he moved to a third world country

You also asked me for proof where LeLe said she wasn't a Christian. Clearly you felt that may have happened considering her refusal to even say if she believes in Jesus despite often using his name. And considering she looked like she was going full atheist while ripping on Christians in general but then switched to "Topix Christians" as a loophole to allow her to basj the faith while claiming it isn't directed at everybody, it certainly wouldn't come as a surprise that she had renounced her faith. If she ever did believe.

Thank you for your honesty and letting me know you only ask for proof on things you think may be true

all in good time my jackass. The rich man who died and went to hell while lazarus who went to heaven, asked if he could go back to warn his brothers . Answer was, even if someone returned from the dead they would not believe.
Then it makes you wonder why Jesus would do miracles or raise the dead.

And if actually seeing a dead man walk isn't convincing, then you really can't expect us to believe based only on rumors of a resurrection, can you?

Do you know what would be suggestive if not convincing of a supernatural presence? If believers were filled with some spirit that transformed them and made them remarkable people. What we see is the exact opposite. Look at the spiritual road kill in this thread.

No I get it

Lele heavily criticized the fact that I would rip on Ians for living in Mexico

You responded to your good friend to let her know by sheer coincidence you had just discovered some information you had looked up because your grandchild's father is from Mexico. Its amazing how your sudden interest in that coincided with the timing of LeLe's post. And then coincidentally you left out a tom of relevent facts that would paint a very different picture than the one you presented and you didn't link anything

Timing is everything I guess

LOL

Yeah that's why you have come here 253 days in a row and made dozens of posts a day to people other than me, babbling the same regurgitated nonsense about Christianity you have been faking and spewing since day one!

While I have no doubt a 'man' as tough as you would try to sissy slap me, once again your delusions have gotten the best of you

This post is unbelievably - spot on! Your words here speak the truth. This space isn't Skom's , or Serahs -or anyone else's.
They have both described unbelievers as trespassers.
Le_le wrote:
Skom doesn't want ideas exchanged here- unless they are his. He will slander your very being if You dare oppose him. He's a troll. Yes?
Yes. Lying is his best friend, and slander his favorite lie. He's like a gremlin or poltergeist haunting the thread, rattling his chains and giggling.

I'm tired of his verbal abuse and I seems you are too..
I'm intolerant of his ways, but not fatigued by them. My biggest potential obstacle is boredom. Sometimes my outrage dies down, and it becomes difficult to keep kicking him without it.

You seem to have the same reaction, but are constrained by your religious commitment from writing the kinds of things I feel free to write. If that's the case, allow me. I'm glad to be able to do it for both of us.

Did Dives go to hell? Or was that an intermediate place in Hades where he awaited judgment?

Was he already judged?

Before everyone else?

Was Lazarus in heaven? Or was he too in an intermediate place?

Why is the parable of Lazarus and Dives the only one in the NT to use an actual name, Lazarus?

Speaking of Lazarus, the non-parable one, he tasted death, too, according to the one gospel that mentions him.

Odd that Luke would be the only canonical gospel writer to name someone in a parable yet ignore a person with the same name in this life, huh?

Especially since John's author tell us it was the Lazarus miracle -- Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead -- that brought about the plot against Jesus: "So from that day on they plotted to take his life."

Do you all ever actually puzzle through your scriptures in a serious way? Or do you simply buy the line of crap -- hook, sinker, and all?

You are guessing on the last part
I read the same articles as you by doing a simple Google search, although I did mine months ago
The reason immigration is at its lowest is because despite leaving Mexico to come here, they end up returning because they can't get work.
The days of the illegal Mexican worker taking jobs from American citizens are over because now American citizens actually won't let them. It was one thing when the economy was booming. Nobody cares who did the jobs they didn't want. Now Americans are taking every job because of the economy
So despite Mexican citizens trying to come here so their family can have a better life, upon realizing they won't be able to leech off the tighter public assistance programs or schools or find work over American citizens, they have no choice but to return home
Its not like never tried to leave because Mexico and its $6 a day jobs were too appealing to leave
But you knew that
hey our greedy Predatory US Multiconglomerates with the help of Fundie Xtain US military plunders other nations raw resources and take their intellectual capital, and ruined their Agriculture land to polluting their lands with Industrial waste... make their nations poor... and our US corporatist/predatory corporations even outsource American jobs, and add insult to injury hard-earned American taxpayers have to pay up for all this...

I go to church because Mia likes it. She doesn't really know that much about me yet. It doesn't bother me. Everybody smells good there. I detected 13 distinct aromas today not counting the Irish Spring.
She says to the greeter (there is a greeter at this church), "This is River. She's my friend".
Greeter, "Well, welcome River. It's so nice of you to worship with us."
Mia pokes me with her elbow and River says, "It's my pleasure, sir. Thank you for having me."
River sniffs the air. She looks through the big doors and notices two other doors. One on each side of the building. She sees no children. She senses a basement. Mia pokes her ribs again. We proceed.
I know what that's like, sort of.

But obviously you live in the United States writer. If you feel so bad and guilty about the U.S/Mexican War where Mexico lose the territory in a >>war<< with the U.S---move to Mexico then. Relieve you guilt and shame about America plundering and stealing Mexico lands and go live there. No one stopping you. Maybe you can get Mexico to start another war with the U.S and try and get they land back. I'm sure Texas would be happy to be part of Mexico again lol.

Preaching to "believers" is like catching carp.
A bit of paper on a hook and they swallow it so deep, you can't get the hook back.

Sure you can. You post it constantly.
You are a Christian and you believe The Church.
Sorry, LW, you don't have a single belief that wasn't taught to you by The Church.

No person who has never heard of Christianity could come up with a single one of the doctrines of any denomination of Christianity simply by reading the Bible alone.
