Have to disagree with your 'secondly'.
I believe in God as do most non-Christians.
I also believe in Jesus and am not a Christian.
I don't live a Christian life but instead try to live the by the principles set down by Jesus. The two IMHO are opposites.
As you should have...stepped into the discussion, and put on personal blinds to the rest. My bad.
I agree.
Not many people do so....why I like discussions with you.
I agree with both as I see them, I believe that because of how I was raised they are compatible. Smo.

1) it's not anymore appropriate for a non-christian to be obnoxious and disrespectful to Christians about God than it is for ANYONE TO BE DISRESPECTFUL TO ANYONE ELSE ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE!
in fact, IMO it's because of doormat-minded and ill-advised 'christians' that antichrists get away with what they do!!!
2) i never accused you of not being a Christian and saved by God's grace. i am, however, challenging you with the notion that not all Christians are disciples; aka not all are doing the ministry that Christ and His disciples did. not all believers were His disciples then, why would they all be now?
1) Never said that it was. In my opinion you are wrong. Peacefully standing up for rights, takes much more strength than bullying your way through.

2) I never said that all Christians are disciples(.) I simply pointed out that there are female disciples found within the bible, after you said females can not be disciples. All the other topics you pulled out of your hat simply to divert the conversation away from the point you made...still stands btw.

we're not supposed to attempt to judge each others motives!:-)
sister, if only you realized that the hard sayings of Christ (beginning with "if you will be My disciple...") only apply to those who wish to follow in His same steps as ministers of the Gospel, but not to every believer, i believe that it would be a truth that would set you free to flourish as a woman in your gifts and calling:-)
I live what I believe to be my calling, daily. I believe that God has a higher calling than you believe for women.

the amount of disciples recorded in the New Testament cannot be quantified and the New Covenant dispensation is still in effect to this day:-)

No. It's not true. You placed the salvation of someone else on another. When does God come in?

I was wondering why the god of the Bible gets so murderous when people choose not to use the gift the way he wants them to?
"That whosoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman."
2 Chronicles 15:13
That is found in the old testament. Not what Jesus taught.

So the god of the bible judges non-believers by their works and believers by their level of faith.
I see
Your god doesn't subscribe to the principles of equality, does he?
I don't believe this to be so.

all equity as been satisfied through the Blood of Christ, of whom you choose to reject.
therefore, you're out there all on your own.....
So God leaves folks behind because they don't believe?

i don't see you treating Christ and i how you'd like to be treated, received, and loved unconditionally; instead, you're always accusing and condeming:-(
Questions are not condemnation.

i like it when accusers accuse me cuz it encourages me that i'm on the narrow path of 'grace through faith'!
if i were promoting humanist concepts like all y'all; i.e.,'i'm a good person cuz i always try to do my best', you'd have no problem with me!;-)
What is grace and is it only for Christians?
