You do not want the truth; the truth is, your whole life is one huge gigantic lie which you try to shove down normal people's throats all day long.
I tell the truth and you lie. These are not just words, I post your lies, I copy and paste the lies you tell and I post facts to prove your words are lies.
I know that is beyond your comprehension because you only accept what people say and haven't a clue what evidence is, or facts are, or proof. None of that matters to you, all that matters is lying to yourself that there is a Jesus and that you believe, but you do not believe, it is all lies. You are a broken defective being. But because you don't believe it you won't believe it. That is so twisted, so circular. Your Christianity is one huge gigantic pathetic evil.
Is that you, Pomona?

Hey Al, I think I found the village idiot!

Sounds like it was tailor made for you. The NIV is not without it's fair share of detractors - you act as if they effected a word for word translation, when the translators themselves admit that they did not do that.
We now have a Comitee on Bible Translation...

...thats responsible for any and all translations of the Bible to be as accurate as possible. All proposed changes are studied and examined by committee members, discussed and voted on. Changes are not made easily.

Silly goose. You won't find him on Topix.

"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you." (James 4:8)

I'm sure that in the past you've had a personal disappointment with God as some on here have told me and I'm really truly sorry to hear that.

The fact that you're very knowledgable in the Bible and the fact that you keep digging at others that believe tells me that deep down you're truly digging to find him instead.

No my friend, you won't find him on Topix.
You'll only find him in your heart but only if you're ready and only if you let him.

I really would prefer civil to you as I see something there that maybe you don't. I see someone looking for answers as I do but from a different perspective.

Good luck friend and I wish you the best on your search.

Just making sure.

Thx... I'll get around to reading or listening to it sometime.

Checking out his list of titles and it looks like the guy's authored several works that'd appeal to me.

Hukt wouldn't complain one bit if Topix would just do away with the judgits altogether.

They're nothing but a nuisance.

Back in 1986 I flew with my then girlfriend out to Des Moines Iowa to meet her family.
One of her cousins (I'll call him Punky) comes up to me and says "you're Mexcan ain't ya!?"
It was half way between a statement and a question.
I said "yup! That I am"
He said "well.... We got good Mexican food out here, its called Taco Bell.... You ever hear of it?"
"Nope!" I said "but I'd sure be interested in trying your so called Taco Bell"

Ohhhh..... The memories......

Lol
I got questioned (and subsequently NOT hired) for writing "American" in the 'other' box.
Once upon a time, I worked for a copier service company. Fixing stuff.

Got a call one day to go to a prominent defence contractor - it might have been Rockwell - they make rocket bits.
I filled out a whole entry form, and where it said "Citizen of" I put down "Éire". That's the Republic of Ireland.

I had all the guts torn out of this massive office copier (remember those?) when a security guy came and escorted me off the premises. leaving the machine scattered all over Hell's half acre.

To this day I do not know who put it back together.

You're trying to tell us the "real meaning" of what Jesus said.
Hypocrite.
He's saying jesus said what he said. Christians are the ones who tell us all about "context" and "the real meaning."

Yes, you did assume. You claimed to know that I think all other religions are myths and now you're trying to justify your assumptions with more assumptions.
Knock it off, don't be an ass.
If you assume something about someone, ASK.
You're just being dumb. It's not an assumption if I have good reason to believe it. You are a christian. Therefore, you believe in jesus, original sin, all that jazz - so you must necessarily consider all other religions myths.

Tell me I'm wrong. We both know I'm not.
