He says he was once a Christian, but he was not. If he had tasted the goodness of the Lord, he would not have turned away from it.
Now he is angry and wants to do as his father the devil says.
And that is to go and smash the father's children's toys.
Cry, whine, and smash and destroy.
Sounds like sour grapes to me.

Belief in your ju-ju is plummeting.

People are realising that it's just a load of superstitious mumbo jumbo.

I guess you know that they also kill people who don't follow their version of Islam.

Is it wrong to kill people who don't follow your religion?

You are mistaken.

Dearth was a gentleman, a wordsmith, and a truly nice person.

He died some time ago. I was unable, alas, to attend his funeral - couldn't make the trip to the UK.

Well doesn't that say it all?
I make a post showing Christian hatred towards Jewsand you follow it up by referring to them as a nation full of sodomites. You prove my point,
The NT refers to Jews as dogs, snakes and a vipers brood who cannot escape being condemned to Hell. They're the people on whom God brought a "numbness of spirit" and gave them "blind eyes and deaf ears". The NT tells us that they're hypocrites and deaf to the truth. No less a person than Jesus told Jews who rejected him that their father was the devil and they chose to carry out their father's desires. Look yourself, there are other passages of anti-semitic text in the NT.
The Gospels tells us that Pontius Pilate had Jesus flogged and sentenced to death and indeed, it was the Romans themselves who carried out the crucifixion. Yet those same Gospels do plenty to malign the Jews and disseminate hatred of the Jews. It seems to me that it suited the early Christians to blame the Jews to avoid upsetting the Romans. It would make it much easier to continue practising this new religion if they kept Rome sweet.
Then came the early church fathers:
Tertullian told us that Israel is never clean - its hands foerever stained with blood
Origen stated that the blood of the Jews falls not just on the Jews of that time but of all Jews up to the end of the world.
Saint Ephraeum Syrus called the Jews "circumcised dogs"
Saint Gregory of Nyssa said the Jews were slayers of the Lord, murderers of prophets, enemies and haters of God.
John Chrysostom wrote "Eight Homilies Against the Jews" which tell us about the despicable nature of Judaism and of the Jewish people who were driven to the ultimate evil. Christians are warned not to come into contact with Jews, a people who within them, demons dwell and their mothers ate their own babies. Chrysostom tells us that the Jews cause is lost and they can expect no atonement.
I'm hardly scratching the surface here and much more anti-Jewish invective existed. With such writings and sermons, it's little wonder that a hatred of Jews became indelibly stamped on the mindset of Christianity.
Fuelled by the anti-Semitism of their leaders, Christians attacked and destroyed synagogues. The earliest recorded Christian pogrom of the Jews was in 414 CE in Alexandria where the Jewish community was pretty much eradicated.
With such a strong anti-Jewish mindset it wasn't long before repressive laws were created.
The Synod of Elvira forbade Jewish men from having sex with Christian women. It didn't ban Christian men from having sex with Jewish women. Jews couldn't marry Christians or even share a meal with them.
A few years later at the Council of Nicea, Christian clergy were forbidden to hold conversations with Jews.
Then along came the Codex Theodosianus which laid down a slew of anti-Jewish laws. These pretty much turned the Jews' status into that of an underclass and they were banned from the administrative, military and legal professions.
Further laws followed and the religious hatred of Christians toward Jews became state laws.
Hatred of the Jews was pretty trendy in the middle ages. Pope Innocent III used his influence by putting pressure on Christian rulers of other nations to remove Jews from public office.
Innocent added a preambles of his own to the papal manuscript "Sicut Judeis" in which he says that the Jews are not to be wiped out completely. In other words it's ok to partially wipe them out. Right.
On an on went the attacks on Jewishness. Further laws were passed and ghettos were set up for the Jews to live in. Life as a Jew in Christendom must have been pretty hellish.
Now that hatred lives onm in people like you.
hi satan - i was calling sodomites 'sodomites', not jews, but nice try AGAIN;-)

Right.
"Let's say that the consensus is that our species, being the higher primates, Homo Sapiens, has been on the planet for at least 100,000 years, maybe more. Francis Collins says maybe 100,000. Richard Dawkins thinks maybe a quarter-of-a-million. I'll take 100,000.
In order to be a Christian, you have to believe that for 98,000 years, our species suffered and died, most of its children dying in childbirth, most other people having a life expectancy of about 25 years, dying of their teeth. Famine, struggle, bitterness, war, suffering, misery, all of that for 98,000 years.
Heaven watches this with complete indifference. And then 2000 years ago, thinks "That's enough of that. It's time to intervene," and the best way to do this would be by condemning someone to a human sacrifice somewhere in the less literate parts of the Middle East.
Don't lets appeal to the Chinese, for example, where people can read and study evidence and have a civilization. Let's go to the desert and have another revelation there.
This is nonsense. It can't be believed by a thinking person."

Welcome back, Wassup. I was wondering where you'd got to. You disappeared pretty much after I demonstrated how the Golden Rule trumps your god. Maybe you'd like to go back and refute me (if you can) rather than run away.
You guys love cherry-picking your scriptures. Why don't you finish that verse off?
Don't worry, I will...."They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."
Perhaps you should give that line a bit of thought. How do you feel being so fired up with hate that you collect together the billions of people around the world who don't believe in your god and categorise them as beong foolish, corrupt, abominable and never doing anything good?.
How do you feel? We can see just how hateful your religion is.
It takes a warped and twisted morality to agree with that second sentence. Just the sort of sick ethics you can expect from a fundie.
Do you agree with the second part of that verse?
Yes or no?
hi satan - this is me!

you didn't refute anything! i replied that your 'golden shower rules' change as you change, but God's rule is everlasting!;-)

I wasn't the one venting, as you did.

So yeah - I feel fine.

As for the "loser" comment - I really don't think so. Do you like making up things about others.

Is this what Christianity teaches you, or did this come to you without the use of religion?

To be honest - one does not need religion, just the will.
