Court system? Topix is a forum and I don't see how it's ok for someone who left the faith to tell me how to be a Christian, constantly, whilst twisting my words, calling me a liar whilst lying about what I've actually said and attacking me over everything, even the time. If this was a Court of Law, the case would get dismissed.
Please show how anyone has twisted your words. Please remember that you have told several lies here and have been called on them by more than one person.

No one has attacked you. A lot of people have disagreed with you.

If you think what people have done here is an 'attack', you should seriously seek counseling.

If this was a court of law, you would be forced to back up your accusations of me and others. You have made many, backed up none.

You're still playing the poor persecuted Christian. You know nothing of attacks or persecution. Ask a Christian in Kenya who has been accused of being a witch by a Christian pastor and then burned in the street about persecution. Ask a person who has been left tied by Christians to a fence post here in the US and abused and left to die because they were homosexual about persecution.

Oh, wait. You can't ask them. They're dead. That's REAL persecution. Those are REAL attacks. You sit here and whine about being attacked while sitting in your warm house, having a snack and having the ability to leave if people make you so uncomfortable that you cry. You always have the option to walk away, but you seem to need to stay where you think people are attacking you.

So stay. And whine. You're only showing your immaturity and lack of the mental ability to deal with things even children learn to deal with.

Reread my post and give it some thought.

You've added nothing of value here. You're neither witty nor learned.

But, clearly, you are angry.

Your anger damages and diminishes you, no one else, child.

... Hitler will no doubt have to answer to God for his sins, as will I, as will you.
So "believing" has nothing to do with salvation ?

Accordingto Christians, all Hitler had to do was "belieive in Jesus" and he gets to Heaven.
According to some Christians, mudering six million Jews gets him bonus points.

<quoted text> I've asked you several times to back up your assertions about me with facts and to be explicit in doing so. You have refused each time.
So, I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask you to back up your assertions by taking the post to which you replied and tell us all the parts with which you disagree and why. Please be specific.
Lol...you mean the posts where you accuse me of being someone else? Or the posts where you accuse and ridicule me about me not knowing where I live or what the time is? Or do you mean the hundreds of posts where you display your blatant hatred of Christians in general? Or do you mean the hundreds of posts where you attack others in the exact same manner with which you've attacked me? Or the many posts where you strawman any one who catches you out in your hypocrisy? Why would I bother? I will look through my posts and see where I have ever claimed to "hate Catholics" though, I pretty sure I've ever only expressed distaste for the Catholic Denomination and teachings though, not individual people. Someone told me not to engage you at all, I only wish I'd listened. I think maybe you might be too set in your ways to have civil and rational conversations with anyone who doesn't agree with you or maybe you are just what I've seen other people call you, I don't know. I'm not copying and pasting your hateful words again, last time I did that I found it was not a very good idea.

Don't pull the "interpretation" fallacy, please, it's a lame excuse for changing your personal beliefs to suit your opinion.
When you defend someone asserting a fallacious statement onto you, that's everyone's right, but it's also everyone's right to judge a statement based on the statement itself, unless backed by evidence. Religious views make no matter on the matter, so to say "non-christians cannot judge christians" is, itself, a fallacy of itself. It's also called evasion. Just show that they were lying about you lying, it's not difficult, and no one with half a brain will take the side of a person who lacks evidence to support their assertion.
Any "christian" who has a different interpretaion from another "christian" is not a "christian".

That is why there are 38K sects claiming they are the only "Real Christians".

Jesus came for the lost and the sinners, not the righteous. Once you accept Christ and the Holy Spirit is within, most of those things fall away, one still sins but the amount of grace needed lessens over time, as one strives to stop sinning, in my experience anyway.
Then why do you hate those who are trying to follow his teachings, but just in a different way than you?

Are you less sinful than a Catholic? A Baptist? A Mormon? A Methodist? What separates you and makes you better than them? What separates you from the other 38,999 sects of Christianity in which you don't believe and makes you better? Are some of them not doing the very same thing you are doing and trying to become a better person because of their faith?

It's quite easy to divide and separate in Christianity, while at the same time counting all those others as Christians when making a point about how many people follow Jesus.

It's also quite easy to judge that other Christians are less than you because you've been taught that they are not 'true' Christians while not even knowing the book you claim to follow, much less the history of your religion.

I know. I've been there. I choose not to be there any more. I also choose not to think that I am more important to God than another person. I choose not to preach anything. I choose to find for myself what works for me, and keep silent so that others can find what works for them. But if you claim to worship the God of the Bible and follow the teachings of Jesus, and don't, I'll be more than happy to show you that you don't.

Until demonstrated otherwise, the bible is the only thing we can judge a person who follows it by. It would be nice if such things were not required, but being in the minority one must know where they stand, and atheists are one of the smallest groups so we have little choice in the matter until either the dynamic changes for a more balanced world, or the majority of christians stop using their bibles as justification for heinous acts.
However assuming an atheist has no beliefs at all until demonstrated otherwise would be a valid assumption on your part, one could not fault you for that, it's the same type of assumption.
I just had a revelation reading your post.

Christianity has nothing to do with believing in God and Jesus. It is believing in Constantine's Bible (and it it's variants) and however a particular sect interprets it. Nothing more.

Note that they defend the Bible (esp. GoJohn and Paul) more than Jesus and God.

I have been bashed more for my rejection of PAul than mt Rejection of the ressurection. Go figure.

I think, despite my rejection of the whole bible/Jesus/Christianity complex I was brought up in, I am still a Southern Baptist in my marrow.
And it ain't particularly healthy.
I can relate to that.

Not people, you. Lol...I don't feel persecuted, that's another blatant assumption in the form of an accusation, show me where I said I feel persecuted. Lol...speaking of children, my little ones make more sense than you do. I don't need to once again back up anything, posts are there for anyone to read, including the posts where you have attempted to engage me with outrageous comments based on my posts, you reply to and nit pick on almost everything I say. Where I have messed up, I have admitted to doing so and apologised, when I am wrong, I happily accept correction, I even accept another's opinion when I don't think I'm wrong just to avoid conflict. You make no sense to me.
