Sometimes when I get out of the shower...I wrap a towel around my head.

I had no idea that it would offend you.

Sorry...

However...

Jesus replied:“'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it:'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Maybe my interpretation of "neighbor" is wrong...I thought it also meant those that wear a towel upon their head...maybe in translation something got left out...

And the second is like it:'Love your neighbor as yourself UNLESS THAT NEIGHBOR WEARS A TOWEL UPON THEIR HEAD. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

The commandment to love your enemies is by far the most ignored commandment in the last 2000 years.

"If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even traitors doing that?
And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even gentiles do that?"

I haven't asked this question you over in the PTAG thread, but what is your beef with Pauline tradition? You have admitted that he wrote his epistles in the 40s, 50, and 60s A.D. Is there some translation you're reading that the rest of us aren't aware of? This is a sincere question.
I don't believe in Paul. I believe in Jesus.

Yes, Paul wrote letters. So did Hitler.

I think...at least IMO...this line might be the one that is ignored...is left out...yet might hold the key...

"All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

The implications of this one line I believe holds more relevance than one might be comfortable in acknowledging.

I made the mistake of telling a lady from South America that she wasn't an Aborigine.

She told me that she was part Indian and so definitely an aborigine over there. I correctly called her an Inca after that.

Paul was a persecuter and christian hater
Paul set out to destroy christians and christianity
Paul was hugely sucessful

Almost all christians (today) are Paulines very few "follow jesus" (less than 10%, I think closer to 3%)

Jesus was a homosexual who preached love

Paul was a homophobe who preached hate

the modern "christian" follows Paul.

you for example, are a Pauline

"what is your beef with Pauline tradition" --- shows you are a Pauline and you have studied so little of your own religion that you do not know what is wrong with Paul.

Agreed.

Jesus says the "Law" will remain forever.

Christianity says, the "Law" is abolished.... which explains a lot.

Note that with many Christians you will get more vitrol by questioning Paul than questioning Jesus.

What I find sad is that you believe God Almighty and those who claim faith in
Him would
need my defense at all. Where is your strength- your victory?
My post was regarding the injustice and outright bigoted hatred that we have witnessed ,
by God"s "faithful", here on this thread. And - I was referring to the stunning
silence by many of you.
God doesn't need defending- and neither should you. it's those who are
persecuted in this world that need- desperately- to have support and Love shown to them by
the Christian community. Instead of judgement and damnation.
I think what I am trying to say is lost on you. So we can end it here.
Ps. I've no peers here-
and it"s just silly for you to imply so.
Hey Le Le,
I see that you allow those that hate Christians, ANY Christian, a pass to attack and run its course, including some the ones that you said needed help, but it is not ok if I do the same. If it would bring peace and unity I would. All that happens is the ones I speak up for turn around and bash.

I do not agree with bashing gays. But if some are going to be nasty then nasty is returned. If only both sides, believers and non-believers, would quit and behave. I don’t expect it to happen. I am not going to keep on calling down when it does no good.

I see what you are saying but I don’t agree with your way any more that you agree with mine. I think you
See what I’m saying but don’t care so you scoot around it.

Yes we can leave it here.

Le Le I do want to add that if I actually witnessed a gay person was being harassed or bashed I would help them.
