<quoted text> There was no victory to gain over hell. Every place mentioned in the Bible as 'hell' is a place that existed in real life or was the Greek Hades. You are quite misinformed, but that's how you prefer to be.
The difference in you and me is that I believe what Jesus said before he was crucified (while he was actually teaching) and not the crap attributed to him after that. It's easier for you to hate than to follow the two rules Jesus gave you: love God, love one another. Your whole religious experience seems to consist of 'speak for God and hate his creations'.
The arrogance takes one's breath away.

<quoted text>Tell me this: What have you done in your life that requires a human sacrifice to be made for you instead of you having to answer for your own misdeeds? What have you done that is so terrible a god would kill himself to make you 'love' him? Most people haven't done anything worth being murdered for, much less in such a terrible way. Yet millions are willing to think that this human sacrifice is not just okay, but are joyous about it. The whole idea of another human being dying for what you did is just egregious and sickening.
You forgot to start screaming "blow me"!

Hehehe...

Jesus was once asked when the kingdom of God would come. The kingdom of God, Jesus replied, is not something people will be able to see and point to. Then came these striking words:“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”(Luke 17:21)

With these words, Jesus gave voice to a teaching that is universal and timeless. Look into every great religious, spiritual, and wisdom tradition, and we find the same precept — that life’s ultimate truth, its ultimate treasure, lies within us.

As Jesus made unambiguously clear, we can experience this inner treasure — and no experience could be more valuable.“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” he declared,“and all these things shall be added unto you”(Matthew 6:33). From this interior plane of life, he is saying, we will gain all that is needful.

Aristotle
This inner treasure of life has had many names. Plato refers to it as the Good and the Beautiful, Aristotle as Being, Plotinus as the Infinite, St. Bernard of Clairvaux as the Word, Ralph Waldo Emerson as the Oversoul. In Taoism it is called the Tao, in Judaism Ein Sof. Among Australian aborigines it is called the dreamtime, among tribes of southern Africa Hunhu/Ubuntu. The names may differ, but the inner reality they point to is one and the same.

In every case, it’s understood that this inner, transcendental reality can be directly experienced. This experience has likewise been given different names. In India traditions it is called Yoga, in Buddhism Nirvana, in Islam fana, in Christianity spiritual marriage. It is a universal teaching based on a universal reality and a universal experience.

Over the past 20 centuries, leading Christian figures have written extensively on this inner kingdom of God and their personal experience of it. This category of experience forms a vital current in the history of Christianity.

You don't know the meaning of the word "debate." Debate is an intellectual process, and you have told us repeatedly how you hate and disdain intelligence, education, and the truth.
<quoted text>
Don't hurry back.
dear kait,

if coming on blog threads to hate on christians is all you're doing to justify your strega wolf witch membership, you're making a piss-poor one.

better get crack'n to up your worthyness or they should kick you out of the club. either that or you must make a nice contribution to the disrobing ceremonies compared to the other old mud-hens who should probably keep their robes on;)
