I just ran across this and thought people would be interested in where their states fell.
There was not a good list for posting the cities with out doing a lot of retyping I can tell you...Atlanta made the top 25...but not in a good way. I did however...I believe...post a link to one site that gave the cities...if not I will try and find it again.
I think I posted one earlier. Atlanta is a dangerous place. I never go downtown alone, nor to any of the major malls.

No Messiah = no End of Days, therefore Jesus failed as a prophet. Real Messianic prophecies state quite clearly that the blood sacrifices will continue for all time.

water - who are these "we" you always refer to? you speak as if you're the key spokesperson for a large group or something.....
Many of us on this thread say 'we' simply because we are the non-Christians. We're not a large group but we have one thing in common...we know you better than you know yourself because we've been there, done that. Now we say 'no thank you'.

As usual, you deflect from the subject of the post to which you replied but decide to pick one word of the post and focus on that instead of your behavior, which was the subject.

Thanks for continuing to help kill off your religion with every post. You are doing more for the cause of exposing the hate and derision in your religion than anyone outside it could ever hope to do.

The sad thing is they've had a "no guns" policy up until a year or so ago that did nothing to curb gun violence. The bad guys still brought guns into D.C. and used them.
Actually, the gun ban expired in 2004. It's been 8 years. I looked up the information on mass shootings from 2001 to 2004 and then compared it to the years after. I think if you do that, you'll see there were less mass shootings during the ban.

a scoffer of course is not going to understand the spirit of Christ's message.
the rich young ruler in the passage you're referencing referred to Jesus as only a "good teacher", as most sceptics of Christ's divinity think of Him. Jesus was refutiating that notion by saying "why do you call Me (aka only a teacher) good? there is only One good, God"
then, He continued to tell the young man "if you think you're good like Me(Jesus) let's see you sell all you have and come do what I'm doing"
Silly child, you can try to spin it all you want, but it still says exactly what it says, and it says that Jesus is telling people that he was not God. And it is not like that is an isolated verse:

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

<quoted text>I thought you were a follower of Christ. That would make you have a religion just like everyone else, even it's just a religion of one.
Why try to divorce yourself from religion? Has Christianity become so distasteful that even while practicing it as you interpret it you are ashamed to be associated with the religion of Christianity?
I personally have a religion of my own. I don't try to say I don't have a religion. I just say that I am not a part of any organized religion and that I take from each good thing I run across and try to incorporate it into my own belief system. Some of that comes from some of the words of Jesus. Some of it comes from Taoism. Some of it comes from Buddhism. Some of it comes from those with greater minds than mine, whether religious or not. Paine, Jefferson, Ghandi, M L King, Sagan, Hahn, Emerson and others have influenced how I think. Still, what I have is a belief system and therefore a religion.
You can't say that religion in itself is bad when you yourself practice one. You can say that organized religion has bastardized everything Jesus taught, or any other great teacher taught and be pretty much on the money.
I don't have a problem with people practicing a religion. I have a problem with someone telling everyone they have to believe or burn.
You seem to have mellowed out since the last time you visited here. That's a good thing.

what don't you understand about the destruction of jerusalem in 70AD? Jesus' contemporary followers had to leave jerusalem and they set up headquarters in rome.
The destruction of the Temple and the Diaspora PROVE that Jesus was not the Messiah, since Messianic prophecy states clearly that the Temple will be FULLY operational once the real Messiah comes.

<quoted text>These are beliefs, not facts. If you choose to see your belief as facts, that's fine.
And you are correct, the beliefs are each person belong only to them. There are no universal answers. Each person is unique. Each person has uniquely different experiences. Why would any all-knowing God then expect the creations he supposedly created to all believe exactly the same way when their experience, knowledge and moral/ethical code does not allow them to?
Stating beliefs as facts is as empty as the bottle with which the wino just got done. They are empty for everyone except for the person holding those beliefs.
Whatever you think.

oooohhh....grave mistake! don;t you understand from scripture that the false messiah (antichrist) will champion the rebuilding of the temple? i.e., your christ is my anti-christ and my Christ is your devil....
Silly child, your Jesus was only an itinerant preacher of Judaism - not a devil, not a god, nothing but a man. On the other hand, I am telling you what the prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel have to say about the Messiah. And you say that that is the anti-christ? Looks like the grave mistake is all yours...

United States Holocaust Museum

Between 1933 and 1945, Germany's National Socialist (Nazi) government under Adolf Hitler used its monopoly of authority to attempt to rid German territory of people who did not fit its vision of a "master Aryan race." Foremost among the so–called racial enemies, according to the Nazis' antisemitic ideology, were the Jews. When Germany's pursuit of "living space" led to World War II and the conquest of much of Europe, the Nazis undertook the systematic murder of every Jew in Europe.

Many other groups were targets of persecution and even murder under the Nazis’ ideology, including Germans with mental and physical disabilities, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Roma ("Gypsies"), Poles, and Soviet prisoners of war. Millions perished in this state–sponsored tyranny.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of all who suffered during this unprecedented tragedy. This online exhibition examines the campaign of persecution and violence against the homosexuals of Germany.

The Nazi campaign against homosexuality targeted the more than one million German men who, the state asserted, carried a "degeneracy" that threatened the "disciplined masculinity" of Germany. Denounced as "antisocial parasites" and as "enemies of the state," more than 100,000 men were arrested under a broadly interpreted law against homosexuality. Approximately 50,000 men served prison terms as convicted homosexuals, while an unknown number were institutionalized in mental hospitals. Others—perhaps hundreds—were castrated under court order or coercion. Analyses of fragmentary records suggest that between 5,000 and 15,000 homosexual men were imprisoned in concentration camps, where many died from starvation, disease, exhaustion, beatings, and murder.

In the racist practice of Nazi eugenics, women were valued primarily for their ability to bear children. The state presumed that women homosexuals were still capable of reproducing. Lesbians were not systematically persecuted under Nazi rule, but they nonetheless did suffer the loss of their own gathering places and associations.

Nazi Germany did not seek to kill all homosexuals. Nevertheless, the Nazi state, through active persecution, attempted to terrorize German homosexuals into sexual and social conformity, leaving thousands dead and shattering the lives of many more.
