You are a vile moron, Is your life so boring and dull that you have to pick on everyone else? Is your self esteem so lacking that in order to feel partially worth more than a speck of dust is to insult other people? Is your brain so incapable of any logical or valid thoughts that the only contribution to the internet you can make is useless one liners with no substance?
You should go upstairs and ask your parents to help you answer these for yourself, because thus far I am unimpressed with your trolling. It is as if the funny farm rejected you for being too droll. It seems as if your last braincell was killed off with bath salts too. How many faces have you eaten, in real life, not that imaginary life you try to live on WoW. But then you'd probably have to get off your fat butt and we'd have reports of earthquakes in your area as you try to run to catch your prey.
And your one UGLY ass MAN trying to be a WOMAN so who cares what a fairy princess as yourself has to say can't be a man so try being a woman you will fail there too lowlife

He likes to attack me because I reject his historicized jesus, while I accept the historical Socrates and Plato. He commands be to believe what he tells me to believe, and I refuse. In that way, he is no different from the christians he claims to oppose.
He likes to attack me because I stated that I'm ninth-generation Strega, and that my tradition is based on ancient Etruscan beliefs. Now, why he hates *that* so much, I have no idea; but he obviously feels threatened enough by it to make him spew his hatred toward not only myself, but he's even attacked, derided, impugned and ridiculed my family.
I'd like to know why.

Interesting; something definitely worth thinking about. Maybe I've been here too long...
That insignificant little sh*t stain "G_O_D" isn't getting to me, I'm just curious. However, it is obvious that somehow my existence here really gets to *him."

So, you are saying that King David should not have been the source of the bloodline that will eventually culminate in the coming of the Messiah? After all, David married Johnathan in 1 Samuel...

Don't confuse homosexuality with promiscuity. Promiscuity can be a problem for anyone of any orientation. Obviously, there is a good reason to push for recognizing same sex marriages...

Murderer was probably not a good example. I should have condensed my list to…those that live outside the teachings of the Bible.
Many pastors do just that though. If I may give one example here: Pastor Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church. I do not think that he is teaching the message of Christ to his followers, so I do not attend his Church. Even if they do believe that homosexuality is going against God, how are they trying to bring those they are demeaning the loving message of Christ?
AnnieJ wrote:
Yes…it is a common practice…
Many Christians expect non-Christians to live by the rules of the OT while they only apply the NT (well whenever it suits them) to themselves.
I don’t know that it is a Christian/non-Christian thing, some do the same thing to other Christians. Sometimes I honestly wonder if they understand that they are even doing it……
AnnieJ wrote:
Here is where my confusion started I think.
You stated in one of your posts that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. In this post you clarified the OT and that the NT is not clear…verdict is still out in a sense. I assume (I know…a dangerous thing) that you still have questions as to if it is or not.
Based on that assumption…
Would you be comfortable with an ordained minister that might “possibly” be living outside of the teachings of the Bible?
I am unwilling to instruct another on how to live based on a presumption of sin. At times every Christian steps outside the teachings of the Bible. It is not possible for someone to live by the word at all times.
AnnieJ wrote:
Believe me…it was NOT my intent…not only for personal reasons but have not ever considered it a sin. I am not even sure how any logical person could make that comparison.
I didn’t think so, but wanted to make sure we were on the same page there.

NS…IMO…the problem lies in the belief that all offenses/sins are equal. For a god to judge so in my opinion is ludicrous. How can a god judge someone that maybe has sex outside of marriage to one that has abused a child or taken someones life equally.
My response to you was not specifically about this issue but more for working out something in my mind. I grew up in a household that was “old school” religion…very much like a “Dusty”. You were to follow the “word” in its entirety or surely you would burn in hell. When I look back…I shudder with horror…thus I no longer am a Christian.
That is just it. How can someone keep score, if they don’t even know what gives a point - or how many points? I am saying that in my opinion a sin is a sin, because how would I honestly know what the outcome is? For me it is trusting in God to work it all out. If a man kills someone in self defense, is he going to be judged in the same manner as a criminal that kills an innocent bystander?(one example of hundreds of thousands that one can come up with) How would I honestly know that? Many Christians are all about self defense and standing up for themselves, but is that what the Bible really says….I don’t have the time to sit and try to figure out what everyone else is doing wrong in their life, and trying to come up with what I think God will do in the end. I would much rather focus on how I effect my slice of the world, and if I believe I am following Gods message to the best of my abilities.
I grew up in a household with parents that often said “God gave you a brain, use it”. If I had questions, we opened the Bible and discussed them together - they would not simply give me answers. I can not understand the Dusty’s of the world…I simply can’t fathom how some come to the conclusions they do. When I first started posting on topix, I thought a large amount of the Christians on here were non-Christians playing some sort of game….slowly after time I realized.
I am not saying that I am right in how I believe. Dusty might very well be right, but my intent is good. If God is what I believe him to be, he would take that into account. I try to constantly grow in my understanding, and have come to the conclusion that others do not wish to do so. I have no issue with that, and if they take issue with me that is fine….I like the path I am on personally.

Okay…can’t seem to be able to put the rest in words that make sense so I will wait on that.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some of my questions. Maybe someone else will get the hint what is supposed to happen when a question is asked! I doubt it…but one can hope.
Thank you for the discussion AnniJ, its always a pleasure. If you ever want to ask me anything, feel free.

Nope. If there is a lie, it is the Bible. I just read what it says.

There were four women present and Jesus said to the one He loved most, "This is your Mother (in law)". So Jesus's wife Mary took care of Jesus' mother, also named Mary, from then on.
