That is deceptive and a lie. Why must you Christian haters always lie to prove yourself right?

Posted by G_O_D to X this weekend:

"Unlike you, I don;t have an agenda."

"Too bad you don't have the honesty to correct your statement about JLu's "google list". Just a backhanded swipe at me....which missed.

I think you lost your touch, X."

"Her point, and mine, was that buning human beings was not a Christian invention as Kate postulated. Now whydidn't you staighten Kate out but instead made a vendeta against JLu and myself ?

You are biased and sneaky, you start going to church or something ?. "

There's many more pages. Should I list them? You never blamed him? What the hell do you call it? And you have the gall to call us liars.

Notice that when confronted with the same Bible, the Christian must change the tune when it comes to their own salvation. Proving that no longer does he believe the words of Jesus from the Bible, now Paul's words take the place of Jesus, all while claiming to believe every word of the Bible.
That is how meaningless the statement is to Christianity.
A god of mercy for them, a god of judgment for everyone else.
Christians create their own deity in their own mind.
And their god loves them.
You, not so much.
Huh, for a second their I thought you were describing those engaged in buggery now qualified as being parents. Their own deity of sorts.

Have you ever been to gaydays@disney? Just sounds so creepy, no?

I've pretty much just stated the facts.

My position has been simple, unchanged and unassailed.

Would you like to see it one more time?

The Antichrist is found nowhere in the Bible. Antichrists, yes. THE Antichrist, no. It is an invention of Christianity not represented by any of the individual authors of the texts. This fact is easily verifiable. Just read the damn book.

I even provided an explanation by a reputable New Testament scholar who repeated basically the same thing that I had said previously. I'll provide once more for your dining and dancing pleasure.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows...

"It often comes as a great surprise to people to discover that "the Antichrist" does not appear in the Book of Revelation at all. In fact, it's nowhere else in the Bible or in other apocalyptic literature except in a few passages in two of the Johannine Epistles. So the key questions are these: Where did it come from? And how does it come to be so central to the way the story of Revelation is interpreted in later centuries, all the way down to the present?"

Read the article for answers to those questions.

How about exposing more of your lies?

G_O_D to X:

"Your memory is terrible or your deceit is tremendous."

"X is hardly worth the bother any more. He rarely adds to the conversation and rarely practices what he preaches.

Should have been here last year. A different man altogether. "

True, the only time our water supply was contaminated was in the 90s. We were told to boil before drinking.
The 1st time I did it, I tipped boiling water from the kettle into a Coke bottle. It immediately buckled.

Mythology is too deep and too much work for the general public.
I wonder if "user friendly" is an ancient marketing paradigm.
I think the problem lies with religious authority that demands the literalization. I think anyone, even children can and do learn from mythology without requiring it to be factual or historical.

If one were to take Biblical writings as metaphor rather than literal history, there is much to be learned there. Just as Aesop's Fables are chock full of good and bad advice for living from cradle to grave.

But no....

It's really all about taking over the world.

Fortunately, them days is gone.

You have no polar direction, do you? You are a bipolar fowl that knows no direction or no purpose. You are quick to judge others beliefs but you have more than shown you have none of your own. Sad that the only thing you have to hold onto in this life is opposing what others have that you cannot grasp. So does degrading others beliefs fill the void that you have nothing at all?
Thanks so much for sharing.

You obviously have a cognitive blockage. I've repeated several times now that the entire thing is nearly meaningless to me. I'm not into church doctrine and dogma. God's salvation plan was made available to a child. All these details have no purpose to those whose names were written in the Book of Life since the foundation of the world. You dissect it. Salvation and Christ is pure simplicity. That is why so many never find it. They have been blinded by the light.

Speaking of poking, those two things floating around on your head kind of make me nervous. I assume they are antenna of sorts. But what do they connect with? No, no, don't tell me, I don't want to know. Just please keep them at a comfortable distance, they appear rather gnarly.

Hugs and kisses as it will soon be time for me and my bedmate to hug each other into a slumber of warmth and love. Thank God for His wonderful creations and gifts of love. xoxo

I'm glad someone else enjoyed that movie.

It came and went almost without notice, but it was a great creation story.

Our culture doesn't have enough of those these days, we seem to like apocalypses.*shrug*

Not according to Jesus, per the author of GoMatthew.

You're confusing Jesus with Paul again, ain'tcha boy?

Now how you want them grits?

Yep. That is what I believed about X and told him "to his face".

It was based on my own feelings of loss for the magnificent information and dialogue that X presented in the past.

It may also be projection in that I am not the exubernt teacher I was a few years ago.

I was being honest with my feelings with X. I hope he realizes that but if not I can do nothing about it.

What I find strange is that you and others make a bigger ordeal out of it than either myself or X ever have.

I guess that is why I consider X a friend and not you. Hope that changes in the future but that is up to you.

From J to C was very good. Was not aware of Scripting Jesus. Will have to add it to the bucket library.

Yep, parents and community. Many fall through the cracks. Some say it is God's way of culling the weak from the herd. I say God is as evil as good... and perfect in balancing the universe.
