Of course, Jesus also told people that some of those in his audience at that time would be alive to see that end. Oops, false prophet.

Not just something new; something new that passes the Topix police.

If one reads the Bible carefully, the only commandements pitched were regarding diet and circumcission. No where does Paul or anyone else say the OT Laws are no longer to be followed.
Yup, Paul said to pitch circumcision, even though circumcision was declared to be the ETERNAL mark of a covenant with the God of the Bible...

<quoted text>Juicylu was trying to distract from the fact that she/he either doesn't know the history of Christianity (and not just Catholics whom she would like to blame for ALL the bad stuff perpetrated by Christians) or that she is in total denial.
His/her passive/aggressive behavior and poor pitiful me attitude gets him/her nowhere, but she continues with both anyway.
The fact is, she seems literate and intelligent enough not to have to pull this crap, but religion has removed all her capability not to pull it.
Rewind, repeat, rewind, repeat, rewind, repeat, rewind, repeat, rewind, repeat....etc.....blah blah blah...so, what's removed all your capabilities not to 'pull it' Nymph? More mind reading I see.

Your deity sure does change his mind a lot.
Or maybe he just doesn't exist.
He keeps trying to book a seat at the last minute during the holiday season. You'd think that after all of this time, He'd learn...

I hate to argue here, but having a hunter in my home does not make me an atheist. You might want to rethink that one.
I think she was talking about guns for protection. At least that's the way I understood it. My sons hunt and fish. I think that's a different category.

I do think that those who claim protection from God are not proving it by saying they need guns for protection. God isn't in the gun business as far as I know.

It's a difficult subject, and not nearly as cut and dried as either side makes it out to be.

I also don't think Huh was talking to people like you. I don't see you as a rabid 'I'll kill the president if he tries to take my guns!' sort of person. Of course, I think there may have been a time or two you might have shot your old kitchen range with one had it been handy enough. I had one or two of those events early on, but thank goodness I have learned as I aged.

Hope you're doing well. It's been a lovely day here. Made homemade chicken and dumplings and called my neighbor to come over so I could share. She really liked them. But then again, she makes hers with canned biscuits. UGH!!!! But I was really happy that I could share something with her she liked.

you still live under the old law, DOG? did you sacrafice a red heifer for your sins last year?
Foolish question, since sacrifices need to wait until the REAL Messiah comes and rebuilds the Temple. Of course, as legitimate Messianic prophecies state, once the real Messiah comes, ALL of the sacrifices will resume (for thanksgiving, since people will no longer sin)- Ezekiel and Jeremiah.

HEY! I don't think the size of penises has nothing to do with location. I may have to form an inspection committee though, just to prove it.:)

All this penis derision makes me know for a fact that I have to form an inspection committee now. Do I start with the Southern fundies or the Northern ones? Oh wait. They're the ones that don't need an inspection.

<quoted text>
i was not raised as a Christian & neither was my wife so after i we were born again, we were very zealous to raise our kids 'christian'. we were strict like your parents were and we made some mistakes but adjusted by the grace of God while our kids were still in school. they resent sum things, but they're no worse than pagans for it.
the thing i resent the most is the lost opportunity to emphasize the grace (unmerited favor) of God throughout the whole ordeal, rather than addressing behavior, behavior & behavior.
I think that this is the most open and honest post that I have seen of yours Wasup...thank you.

I don't regret how my parents raised me...it was fairly normal for the area that I lived in. How they raised me helped me to be who I am...good or bad.

My strict upbringing really had nothing to do with why I left the faith. I didn't really know at the time that there was anything any different so there was not resentment on my part.

At some point your children will look back and understand what you tried to do...they still might not agree with it but I doubt if they will harbor any resentment if they understand that you did what you thought best at the time and did it out of love.

One last thing that I will say...despite the strict upbringing that I had...I didn't walk away from Christianity so that I could live some sin filled life...had nothing to do with it.

Why not change that line of thought to: "Let Jesus love you and you may spend eternal bliss where there are no tears."

Why the threats? You can't scare people into believing anything, and it would be disingenuous. Why not offer the honey opposed to the vinegar?

Another Christian fantasy.
You realize Jesus is dead, and the Christ never existed, right?
Of course you do.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him" (Jn. 3:36).

Right, because I did that in the beginning didn't I? My point is, some of you guys/gals invite a lot of this stuff on yourselves and spread your distaste, sometimes rather nastily, over every Christian forum, a person can only take so much Annie. You go have a read back, I'm not arguing over your seeming to pretend to lose your memory or the ability to read.
JL...the last time that you and I talked you seemed to have no problems with me...now you seem to have.

If you feel as if I have attacked you please find the post or posts and I will reread them. If an apology is in order than I have no problems with giving you one.

I think that we all jump to conclusions sometimes and take someone disagreeing with us as being attacked.

Read your own book before telling others to do so. That way, you won't continue to misquote it or quote it out of context so that some non-Christian has to tell you what your own book says or in what context it is said. No magic decoder ring needed.

btw - which books would you like to see burned if you came to power???
i have a grand library including Holy Bibles of various translations, many biographies of saints of old, inspirational stories of valiant missionaries, study texts, many different daily devotionals...etc;)
Non-theists don't burn books, silly. We leave that to you fundies. Collectively, you've destroyed every holy book of every other religion you could get your hands on.

Isn't it time to get in the shit box Camaro and get your mullet trimmed.
<quoted text> Cite your source. Thank you for proving the efficacy of gun laws by invoking the dearth of deaths by illegal machine guns. Idiot.
Unfortunately, machine guns are not illegal in this country. And the gun ban on simi-automatic weapons, missiles, grenades and other such 'home protection' paraphernalia expired in 2004. Yeah, I need me a couple of hand grenades and missiles and a missile launcher to protect my property. I'm expecting the government to come kick in my door and take my handguns any minute now.
