I'll take that for your inability to do so.

Annie - what part of "i need Jesus cuz i can't be as good as the perfect law of God demands" don't you you understand???
What "perfect" law? I thought you believed that things which change cannot be perfect? Are you saying otherwise?

BTW. You might consider Robert E. Van Voorst. He's a fine, believing scholar. Really. One of the few.

Nice try but you are still a failure on that point.
Stick to what you know. You make a lot of good points then destroy yourself with assinine crap that makes you look like a religitard.

"Female superiority movement?" You really are a joke, y'know that?
It's about equality under law; something that you refuse to recognize.
Oh, he's been watching that crazy Fox News woman who said women have ruined men by working, asking for equality, and all that other terrible stuff that makes men wet their pants because they can't rule women any more.

You're just mad because a multi-generational lineage of atheists never followed through for thousands of years writing down any evidence that God didn't exist.....an anti-Bible if you will.
Once they were crushed and destroyed by God for their disobedience and defiance , I guess the embarrassment and humiliation thwarted any ideas of writing down any lies they could dream up.
The same thing will happen to you when Christ returns, after which you willfully fall to your knees begging for mercy.
You pathetic tongue scrape.
Atheists don't have a Bible because they're not selling eternal salvation for mouthing 'I believe'. They don't knock on your door on Saturday morning while you're trying to have family time.

If they were crushed and destroyed by God, why are they still here? You make no sense.

Your threats do not work on sane adults. Even other Christians disagree with you on many things. The Bible says when Jesus returns there will be 1000 years of peace, and the judgment will then take place. But you say those who don't believe as you do will be judged at the time of his return. Geez. You people should get together and decide what you really believe and whether or not just to throw your Bible to the wind or not. You can't really believe the Bible if you keep making stuff up and adding to it to fit your personality, now can you?

Well, it may be the personality, conversation and good looks but I have this sneaking suspicion that the ability to hold oneself in check and not commit wholesale mayhem may not be in play.

Because God loves them enough to keep giving them chances to straighten up. I can tell you've never read the Bible.

Your anti-Christianity has made you evil and rebellious.

I know, because sane people are Christians. It's the insane like you that are in torment and fear.
Your fear is why you keep shoving your hatred onto Christians.

BTW<Atheists played no part in the Sandy cleanup. Only faith based groups do anything to help.....and that area was infested with atheists!!!!

I bet the atheists won't even give a hint of "thanks" in return, the selfish bastards.

You're making it difficult for me to keep up with the socks. Five atheist socks showed up right after I started whipping some atheist a88.

Quite the contrary.

You made a definitive statement saying God 'destroyed' atheists. I asked you why they are still here if God destroyed them. You move the goal posts.

It's expected.

Sorry, but those people have been around long before you were.

But, if it soothes you to think that you were whipping some atheist a88, go right ahead.

Many of us who are no longer Christian aren't atheist, by the way. You just can't stand it that people walk away from the religion you practice. Most of us walked away because we realized that the questions we had could not be answered by Christianity. We didn't just get up one morning and decide it was a new fad we would join.

But for me, at least, it was finally taking a look at the people also who claimed Christianity and acted in every way but the way in which Jesus taught us to live. Christians may have had a part in my leaving, but it was the Bible itself that caused me to leave.

So you can go on saying I've never read the Bible and consoling yourself that as a Christian you could never leave. But you left long ago and don't even realize it. If you were truly living by the Bible and Jesus' teachings, you could not and would not behave the way you do on here. It's just more proof to all of us who have left that it is a man-made religion, and keeps being remade over and over by each person who claims it.
