There's your delusion showing itself again. There is no "they say;" *I* said you don't want to understand, you dumb fucker--and I'm right. You DO NOT WANT TO UNDERSTAND, and you prove it with every post. You live in your own world; I prefer reality.

Then, You are trying with your own efforts "WORKS" to receive what Jesus died to give you freely..Even Jesus said in Matthew 5:20

Matthew 5:20
New International Version (NIV)

20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

The Pharisee's were SELF Righteous because they TRIED to become righteous by the WORKS of The Law. Jesus became our righteousness. Thats the only way to become righteous..For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Its through Jesus that we become Righteous..Not by our self effort, which only makes us SELF RIGHTEOUS..We have to be Spirit Led, Not led by our own flesh..

Jesus vs. Christianity
Matthew 19: 16-17
The question:
"Then someone came to him and said,‘Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?’"
The answer:
"And he said to him,‘Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.’"

No one has ever been, or ever will by made righteous by the law. If you read the OT carefullly, the whole point is that if men could be righteous we wouldn't need a single commandment.
Despite what Christianity claims, Jesus did not have to be sinless or perfect or a god to fulfill Leviticus....AND.. John the Baptist and Jesus could have traded places. It was only chance that one's throat was cut and served as a meal and one was handed over.
If you didn't follow that I recommend you read Leviticus 16 very closely and without a "preacher whispering in your ear".
"Let those who have eyes see"
I wonder if you'd be interested in Dr. Tabor's priestly thesis re:John and Jesus as prophesied dual Messiah in the lines of Aaron and David? I don't think the idea is original with him, but he makes a compelling case in his book, "The Jesus Dynasty" for Jesus' motivation as truly believing they were not only fulfilling prophecy, but causing it. It's the tragic side to an otherwise remarkable life.

Jesus trivia gleaned from Tabor: Remember, after John is killed, how gospel Jesus kind of thumbs his nose at Herod and drifts out of Perea (where Herod ruled) and back west of the Jordan (not Herod rule)? Tabor points out how Herod's plan was regicide, and the real Jesus was on the lam. He did intend to provoke a reaction, but not then, not there, and certainly not with that two-bit pretender.

<quoted text>Hey random lunatic .How nice of you to jump in but I am afraid everything you said is wrong. I dont fear reality and have no set position against evolution. I just know there is no way anyone can know evolution, something that takes millions of years that we cant even tgrace tlo its source, is ongoing. there is no way anybody could know that, even if humans are the result of evolution, that it isnt in its final stage or if not that it will continue indefi8nitely. nobody could possibly know that
"I just know there is no way anyone can know evolution" ... that is far from even being a scientific assertion, that's purely religious fanaticism. We don't "know" evolution, we observe it. Then your last point shows just how little you know about the topic, there is no "final stage," there isn't even a direction. Evolution happens, sometimes it produces good results, sometimes bad, then natural selection causes the bad ones to vanish and the good ones to survive. You need to learn the basics of something before you can even begin to address, and you need to learn all of it before you can even begin to debunk it.

I learned all about your bible, had to as a child, and that's why I can debunk it. You should extend the same courtesy.

If you were a supreme being, why would you waste your time on a civilization which spends more resources on killing people than educating them?

You are absolutely correct.

If I were a supreme being, I would provide for a happy, friendly, trouble-free civilization.

If there is a god out there, he or she has not done a very good job.

<quoted text>Rider, I didn't "piss and moan" about Bush's spending", now did I? I asked a fair question - why did no one bitch about it when that was going on, but got all fiscal responsible ONLY when the opposition took over.
They did. Many conservatives ''bitched'' about it
I also have been hearing for the last four years of these dire things "just around the corner". >>yawn<< You're right - let's talk WHEN that happens. In the meantime, things are far better than they were in Jan '09, after 10 YEARS of waiting for the benefits "just around the corner" that supply-side incentives, lower taxes, and deregulation were supposed to provide.
You go ahead and "wait" for your dire predictions to come true. I suspect Jesus will get back first. In the meantime, I'll look at what DID happen, and vote for somebody to do something different.
So you don't think anything is going to happen. Do something different? You mean like not even doing a budget? Ignoring it all? Maybe it will go away? How does one deal with a huge problem by ignoring it? Does that work for you?

Ouch.

Americans, I understand, spend two and a half times as much on health care as the British. On a per capita basis.

Where does all that money go?

Insurance companies. The pharmaceuticals industry. The AMA.

But universal health care? Nope. It's just too darned expensive. Can't afford it.
