okay DOG - how can anyone who trusts in the righteousness of Christ and not in their own righteousness be self-righteous?
wouldn't it stand to reason that the opposite is true; i.e., those who don't trust in the righteousness of Christ are trusting in their own rightoeusness and therefore they are self-righteous?
this is not a trick question....
You yourself are a trick question. Of course, when you compare yourself to God and say you have all the answers in the universe, everyone will just naturally bow down to you, right?

Being a Jackass for Jesus is your shtick.'WE' know that.'WE' do not see anything righteous in you. Remember, it is not God typing here. It's only you. YOU are the problem, not God.

okay okay...among many other things, i can also be hypocritical.
what do you do about your sins & hypocricy?:)
First of all, sins are just self-induced nonsense. When I do something that is an error, a mistake, I honestly try to make up for it. I really try not to be hypocritical but I am sure there are times when I have been, especially when I was a practicing Christian.

That's all there is to it, waassuupp. You make amends in this lifetime because if you just ask an invisible deity to forgive you and keep doing the same thing, you've not only not learned anything but prove yourself to be a liar and a fool. Do you think God thinks you are repentant when you continue in the same behavior time after time? Do you think that asking a woman for a date when you are already married is not breaking one of God's laws? You've done it here repeatedly yet seem to think that law doesn't apply to you. If you covet another man's wife/girlfriend, you have already committed the sin in your mind according to the Bible.

Maybe you should work on the pile of trash in your own back yard before calling the cops because your neighbor left a hairpin laying in her driveway.

<quoted text> I had a good laugh when I read this post.
I think it may be akin to some of the archaic laws in the US states.'Have you had sex with a mule?' for some reason reminded me of one of those laws. In one state ( I can't remember which one at the moment) it is illegal to have sex in a shopping cart.
So, if there is a law against it, at least one person/couple must have done it at one time or another. I think that's where the concern comes from. A couple must have tried sex in a shopping cart and someone saw them and all aghast, must have made an impression on the state/county/city to make it against the law. Same thing with having sex with a mule. I can't for the life of me understand how having sex with a mule would hurt the mule, but God was certainly concerned about it enough to make it one of the ten commandments. Funny he thought it so important to have it written in stone and didn't write a single thing about homosexuality. Funny also that he thought it was worse than the rape of another human being or the enslavement of other humans.
LOL All kinds of responses to this...

Darn...I didn't know anyone was looking...or...

Is that sex in a shopping cart going down a steep hill...or...

Well...better not post the other responses.

I remember reading in one state (maybe Georgia) that it is illegal to tie your giraffe to a light post. In another it is illegal to give your horse a bath in your bathtub. There definitely should have been commandments about that!

Whether one adheres to 613 or just 10 commandments it is as if one was set up to fail. Most have no problem following most of the 10. One can not always control the thought sins. Yet it is just as sinful to think of lust as it is to act upon it.

If a God created us he created us sexual human beings...then punishes for acting upon those feelings unless you follow some set of rules.

Annie and WN, I know sometimes life can be confusing. Maybe this may help...
And I quote:
This comes in handy a lot of the time. I can leave it home, when I think it's gonna get me in trouble, or I can rent it out, when I don't need it. But now and then I go to a party, get drunk, and the next morning I can't for the life of me remember what I did with it.
First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it. So I called up the place where the party was, they hadn't seen it either. I asked them to check the medicine cabinet 'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes But not this time. So I told them if it pops up to let me know.
I called a few people who were at the party, but they were no help either. I was starting to get desperate. I really don't like being without my penis for too long. It makes me feel like less of a man, and I really hate having to sit down every time I take a leak.
After a few hours of searching the house, and calling everyone I could think of, I was starting to get very depressed, so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast. Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place, where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street, I saw my penis lying on a blanket next to a broken toaster oven. Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him. He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen. I took it home, washed it off, and put it back on.
I was happy again. Complete.
People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached, but I don't know.
Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass, I like having a detachable penis.

"First of all, sins are just self-induced nonsense"

1 - i never ever trust someone who can't admit they're wrong! i've learned this from working with cons in prison.

"I honestly try to make up for it"

2 - how could you ever make up for murdering the innocent Son of God?!

Philonic. One 'l', not two. Look up Philonic Judaism. Then look up Augustinian Christianity in America. Maybe you can un-muddy the waters of your mind just long enough to understand a conversation.
Also look up English Grammar 101. It does not start with 'R U'. And yes, I'm a purist trying to save the English language from fools who mostly communicate by cell phone and have no real conversations, nor do they write in any intelligible literary form.
Even Hukt on Fonix? I'm not one been indoctrinate but you and others who kowtow to extremist Religious views are ones dividing world to wars... You need to look up Leo Straussian Philosophy and Jocobian precepts and the Neo-malthusians Castrophe as these tide in with radical right wing Xtain Coalition evil works... You need look up Critical thinking skill 101, and logical reasoning 101, foreign affair 101, peace studies 101... know now sister religious nut get to work also and you communicate through the air with reaching out to others with you man-made gods as been brainwashed and indoctrinated by Religious Conmans who preach to god of Money and earthly needs and wars , very few good mens; mens with reason but without moral will do what its nation and the world?

It makes sense but so do a lot of other ways of looking at it.
In general what we do "know" is that it is far from a first hand account of any activities of Jesus, the Apostles or Paul let alone a "true and accurate account" of much of anything except the gullibility and self deceit of humans.
If a Christian 1st cent.'DSS' is ever discovered I think many people (believers and non) will be sorely vexed.
Of course not. Luke/Acts is a work of fiction masquerading as history. It is based in part on some version of Mark, a polemic against the Twelve and their teaching. Luke, unlike Mark, wants apostolic authority. He relies on Mark but tones the rhetoric down. The closest followers of Jesus are no longer a threat -- or even alive. The first generation has passed, and the Jerusalem church as been long dispersed. Luke often is dated to the 80's, but outliers such as Burton Mack date it to the first quarter of the 2nd century. Regardless, it is time to take apostolic authority from its next of kin.
