Your objections are about the mechanics of how to tell a person he is lost and heading for the flames of hellfire for all eternity. There will be no escape from that perpetual unimaginable torture.
What does your god have to gain by having someone tortured for all eternity? Care to explain? So far, no one christian has been able.

Maybe just maybe...this will answer the question...

What Is The Deal With Lightning Bugs?

I mean, here is this rather ordinary looking flying insect, but wait ... it has a glow-in-the-dark rear end!

What was God thinking?

I'm sure science has all kinds of explanations about how this fluorescent fanny is useful for mating and other stuff,but why did God choose to make the lightning bug glow?

I wonder if when God was creating all the animals and everything around us, he came up with the idea of thelightning bug and said, "The kids are gonna love this."

We know that God loves us enough to create all the things we need to survive, but does God loves us so much Hecreated some things just to make us smile?

Just seeing lightning bugs takes me back to those warm summer nights of my youth. I'd be running around the backyard with my empty Mason jar, racing toward the flashing lights all around me. I can still feel the joy and hear thelaughter echoing through my memories.

Lightning bugs were as much a part of summer as fireworks, fresh tomatoes, and big ice-cold slabs of juicy watermelon.(I also have a theory of why God created watermelon seeds the perfect size to spit, but that is anotherstory.)

God created so much diversity in this world, much more than is needed for mere survival. He made all of this forus, and He wants us to enjoy it. We can get so busy surrounding ourselves with man-made goods that we don'tnotice the living tapestry God has laid out all around us.

I guess lightning bugs do have a purpose after all. They are a reminder of a creative God who loves us so much, He'deven paint the rear end of a bug -- just to see us smile!

So what do you call some one who believes in Jesus, accepts Jesus as the final Levitican Atonement, tries to follow what Jesus taught but rejects the Greek concept of "Christ" and the pagan doctrines of Paul ?
That's not up to me. What others believe is their choice. It definitely isn't my belief, and it isn't the belief of most Christians, the latter being of little importance as it represents indoctrination. I do not believe majority rules in spiritual matters. There are many accepted and common beliefs that are shared by the majority of Christians that continue to be tweaked as our society deems acceptable and common practices that were not subject to change according to the author God. The majority can and likely will be found incorrect on many Biblical, church, theological, and historical beliefs and doctrine. But by then it will be too late to realize.

What bothers me the most, especially on Topix, is that many non-believers associate all Christians by the posting of one or more that claim to be a Christian. That is why it is wise to consider how we may be associating our beliefs and behavior as a norm for other Christians, and cause undue harm. I certainly do not lump all non-believers together as if they represent the whole. We are all individuals and our chosen faith is just a part of this temporary life and how we live it.

Two nuns are driving at night in a swamp. A vampire fly's out of a shadowy stand of moss-covered trees and lands menacingly on the hood of their car. The nun who's driving says to the other nun, "Quick! Sister! Show him your cross!"

The second nun leans out of the window, grabs the vampire and screams, "GET THE FµCK OFF THE G0DDAMN CAR!!!"

<quoted text>There's the rub. It is impossible for you, with your regenerate mind and mortal coil, to ensure that you are really born again. To claim otherwise is to presume to know the mind of God, and as you have so ferverently stated previously, mere mortals can not know the mind of God. Thereby lies your quandary.
Crises brought about by drug and alcohol abuse and/or sexual misconduct (occurring primarily among adolescents and young adults) are responsible for the majority of false conversions in evangelical and charismatic Christianity. You have already discussed your previous substance abuse and your wanton, unfulfilled sexual desires are on rampant display right here. Sin is to become sinful. You have demonstrated that you have yet to attain such a conversion. You are a false prophet. A devil in idiot's clothing. A regenerate pervert. Burn, baby, burn.

it's very evident that you're sharing your spiritual father's antichrist mind/heart....
You sound like a losing liberal trying to shut off all debate over *any* given issue by shouting "RACIST!!"

Now you are calling everyone who disagrees with you "antichrist." In other words, you are calling yourself christ.

Talk about delusional--or blasphemy.

Thanks for a well thought out reply. I concur.

Thank you for verifying my Logical conclusions.
My obversation was not about parables, it was about division and your religion is divided into 38,000+ factions/cults/sects.
Since you claim christianity and the bible to be associated with many humans, what would keep me from joining the most numerous christian body such as the catholics?? Why would I want to join a minority like your's?
