Jesus tells you that others will judge...
Matthew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
Your candle has burned out clownie...I see no light.
Again...
John 15:8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
All I see when I look at you are...fruit flies.
And then there is...
1 Peter 2:12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us
I see no good deeds...only one-liner insults and lies about people that you do not know.
All of the above verses tell you that you will be judged by those that are not of your faith. They also tell you what you should be trying to display to those outside your faith.
You said in a post a few days ago that you will do on topix as you please...I suppose that you mean even if it goes against that which you claim to believe.
So...do you really believe in that Bible...in God...in Jesus...or just the parts that fit what you want to do?
"I see no good deeds...only one-liner insults and lies about people that you do not know."

There is Booblical justification for that, you know. Oh, wait, there's not! Sorry. It is so difficult to tell when witnessing the behavior of Topix Christers. In fact, the opposite is plainly true:

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.

For those not Shakesperean:

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. Of course, Groete Hansworst always seems just a little confused. It might be all the horn honking and exhaust fumes from the tiny car, but, one does wonder why those that claim to be Booble-Believin' Christers don't care to follow any of the tenets.

Hey, you old coot. What's up? It doesn't need to be understood. It's mysterious!

You can't disprove Muhammad was God's most holy prophet. Better look on a map to see which way Mecca is and start with the bowing!

Are Topix Christians really any different than those that have not gathered here? I think that the only thing that Topix does is give them courage...after all...their preachers and congregations can't hear them.
You must remember...they believe that Jesus is with them here...he said so.
Matthew 18:20 - For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
I wonder if Jesus ever gets tired of them making him look like a fool?
Most of the people I know don't think much about religion other than as a reason to be prejudiced, judgemental and hate-filled.

Have a nice day you non-intellectual bimbo ... ya hear!?
The first step to a holy life is to accept Jesus Christ as your savior!!! if you don't believe the book or in Jesus don't judge me
Based upon your(and others')emulation of this 'Christ' fellow, he is a real scumbag worthy only of being flushed to hell.

Hey there!
I don't think we have to worry too much about most of these Christians and their Bible...most of them haven't even taken the plastic wrapping off of it. If they have...they are trying to open it from the wrong side(upside down and backwords). Then again...they think they are only to read the page marked by that little ribbon bookmark.
It's OK, though. All they have to do is declare, "I believe!, and the bucket of pig's blood washes them Carrie-like to Cloud 9 in Outer Space!, where they get to wash hippie feet, listen to harp music and Pat Boone, watch Lonnie Frisbee pretend not to be gay while wearing a silken robe, angel wings, and a gilded halo, look down at Old Double Hockeysticks and squeal with glee at all that misfortune, and tease their soul hair high and blonde like Jan Crouch at a Billy Ray Cyrus concert.

Whoop!

Hey, where is Dusty, that hot, old crone? I picked up a fine, handcrafted velvet rope for her to use at the gates of Club Heaven. I heard the torture worms gnawed the heck out of the old one with their steel fangs.

IMHO, most do not qather in Jesus' name. They gather in the name of Christianity, Christ, Popes, Paul, Luther, etc. AND themselves.

A far cry from what Jesus meant.

Well, that's why it was invented, well, that, and ignorantly explaining the unexplainable, consolidating power, and growing the coffers. It is remarkably efficient at all of that.

When there are Muslim astronauts, they had a difficult time positioning the arrow in the spaceship to point to Mecca. Wonderfully a fatwa was composed to prevent blasphemy. It's magic!

Trespassing is such a strong word. It's more like littering. Care for a Chick Tract?

I can’t agree that the above view is a fair one personally. Looks to me like you are looking for all the bad in religion, and all the good in science. Everything that religion has done in this world is not bad, and everything science has done is not good.
By the way, while I may be incorrect here (I am sure I will be corrected if I am wrong) I think that the translation of witch is under dispute. I have read where it is thought to represent a person that poisons the local well. If a person was going around adding poison to well’s to kill off the locals, I could understand the command to not let someone kill off entire communities.
You may be right, but what is more important is how that Scripture was used to murder innocents and enemies, especially women. That it can be so broadly interpreted and misused points to its flaws and could potentially be described as nothing more than drivel.

With all due respect, could you please point to what religion has done in this world that is good. I am not asking about individual or group acts of kindness in the name of one church or another, but what have religions contributed to Society past the early necessity of tribalism for survival?

And I agree, science has certainly made killing most efficient, but the good outweighs the bad in immeasurable terms.

Not my forte but the "God Gene" study is one.
Is it trying to disprove an existence of a god or gods or trying to explain why belief is so pervasive?
