You don't think non-Christians should 'preach' to you, but you feel it's perfectly okay for you as a Christian to preach to non-Christians. You know nothing more about those individuals than they know about you. But this is the irony of fundamentalist Christianity. They have the 'right' to do as they please, but others don't have that same right.

Here in the US, everyone is allowed the right of opinion, and allowed to speak it. It is not a God-given right, but a Constitutionally given right.

I don't like the way you assume to know what every non-Christian is, based only on _your_ past behavior. Many of us have lived very boring lives compared to yours if you say you have committed all 16 of the sins but one in that Bible verse. I know I have. But for some reason, you judge that others are not as enlightened as you because you've 'accepted Jesus', even though many of us were Christians for decades. That is the reason we know when you are following Jesus as you claim, and when you are not.

Like I said, everyone makes mistakes. Every single person on earth makes mistakes. Religion and 'accepting Jesus' does not change that. You will always make mistakes and if you have been given the impression that at some point in life you will not do so because of your acceptance of Jesus, you were badly misinformed. However, it is good to strive not to continue in things you know are morally and ethically wrong.
I've judged no one, I've not claimed to be more enlightened than anyone, I am not all other Christians you've spoken to and yes I've had a f*cked up life, more than any Christian I've ever met. It's one of the reasons I sometimes feel like I don't fit in but Jesus saved me from myself and what I feel and believe is my own and no one can take it from me. I don't much care wether you think I'm following Jesus or not tbh, to me, you have no credibility at all. Stop projecting your feelings onto me and worry about your own decisions.

Pope?
Grace?
Priesthood?
Bible?
Pope, no comment.
Grace, is given by God and we are also to strive to be gracious under all circumstances.
Priesthood? All Christians are Priests who are under the Priesthood of Jesus and can go straight to God? Or Church Priests, I feel bad for them that they can't marry.
Bible = Word of God.
Is a Protestant basically a person who is not Catholic?

Not on my planet. On my planet Christians believe statin is a jealous prideful angel that got booted out of heaven then made it his mission to turn as many humans as possible against God by any means necessary. I reckon he's doing a great job. What Christians think statin is a deity? Nonsense!

Thanks.

What do you reckon that the protest-ants were protest-ing against?

Check this out from http://suite101.com/article/basic-protestant-...

Sola Scriptura - Doctrine is "by Scripture alone" as opposed to papal decree or council edict.

Sola Fide - Justification is received "by faith alone" as opposed to works or sacraments.

Sola Gratia - Salvation comes "by grace alone."

Sola Christus - Atonement for sins is "by and through Christ alone."

Soli Deo gloria - All glory is to be given "to God alone."

The ONLY Deities in Christianity are GOD and His son!!! Anyone who says or believes otherwise is a liar or a fool.

I respect you and I think you have much knowledge and wisdom, if you told me you were once a preacher/pastor I would exhibit no surprise, however, I will never concede on this, that piece of excrement satan is no deity, his desperately wanting to be does not make it so, I know this from experience and no one could ever convince me otherwise, so please just agree to disagree on this one, ok?
