I know what you are attempting to do here. I will not argue with you as we have played this out many times. If you have an actual discussion in mind? Have at it.
this Is an actual discussion and i'm sorry that you resent me for staying biblically sound.

bottom line - i can't bear & nurture children and you can't teach and preach to men. i don't resent you for your gifts and calling and i'd appreciate if you don't resent me for mine!:-)

what part of "I didn't come to bring peace but a sword" don't you understand?

i.e., whenever the Word/Sword of God is broadcasted antichrists SHOULD get their knickers in a bunch or they're not being good enough antichrists!;-)

Who wants a religion that doesn't bring peace?

No wonder Christianity is hemorrhaging believers and churches are closing.

Logic and reason are the first casualties when you accept religion.

I see atheists are busy killing atheists over who believes in gods the least.

Oh wait - that never happens.

peace with God = peace among humankind

no peace with God = self-centerdness & competition among humankind

you know this, but are too self-centered to admit it;-)

This'll be the peace that comes after your god slaughters pretty much all of humanity.

Your comment I responded to said:

i'm not sure what you're saying here sister, but let's just agree to disagree that men can be called as disciples and ministers of the Gospel, but women should stick to adminstrative & blessing ministries:-)
Since the Bible clearly has female disciples in it, I simply thought you had been attempting to ruffle feathers. I don't resent you at all, simply don't think I will ever understand where you are coming from. Thankfully the men in my life appreciate my opinions and would never ask me to be less than I believe God created me to be.

Reads to me that Liam does not believe in Christ, so it would stand to reason he has felt no calling. Do you know what his belifs are waaasssuuup?

I found myself for my first two (if not more) year's on topix very intregued by the diversity between the Christian denominations alone. I grew up in an open and honest household, where individuality was nurtured. I attended the same Church my entire upbringing, so there was not much of a variation in the teachings other than when a new pastor was appointed. In my younger years I attended Church because the family went and it was fun, teenage years decided to only attend on holidays - not a big deal to the parents. I returned to Church as an adult for personal reasons, nothing dramatic....simply feelings. I am raising my children the same. I think that there is a big difference between being conditioned and belief. I do understand the comfort zone aspect, and continue to question as I believe should always be done. It's not that I question God, man's interpretation gives me pause ;)

I tend to talk religion and politics. I just tend to shut down politely when someone tries to steam roll me into a different opinion or belief. I simply continue to vote and believe as I do. Now a good discussion...Love them! Never know what you may learn :)

IMO - it's not about denominations, but it's all about correct theology. lutheran theology, for the most part, is 'i just need to be a smiley-faced 'good person' & God will work out everything in His time'. true Biblical theology says 'i am the temple of the Holy Spirit and God works mightly through me!'
get the difference?:-)
Are both not true?

I find it frustrating personally. Pulling from the old when convenient, yet not held to the law's when it's not :(

It's just with so many gods out there to choose from; it's best to be specific about which god you're talking about.
