You should feel bad for me, but not for the reasons you think.

I went from being married to the daughter of a multi-millionaire at the start of one weekend to losing her and being in jail in Georgia on Monday.

Another week, I went from a pro contract with the Cincinnati Bengals to driving a forklift for $6.50 and hour. I was also shot twice. But that part didn't hurt.

Calm down, you are having a silly hissy fit.

Your claim is that an imposed, violent dictatorship equates to Christianity.

That is a comparison of here and now tangible facts, not your ignorant, distorted view of the unknown.

Now, back it up. The fundamental basis of Christianity is choice.

SMile.

Buck, could you give us some more right wing rants?

You watch watch way too much Fox News.

Then you will have to tell me when Jesus really meant it when he referred to people as gods and sons of God, and when he meant something different. And you will have to square that with him denying the charge of claiming to be uniquely a son of God to get off the hook and avoid being stoned.
You will also have to square it with him telling mortal followers they could do everything he did and even greater things. That would include doing things greater than being the atonement for all sins of mankind throughout eternity.
You will also have to square that with his followers, after Jesus' death, traveling to Paul's churches and trying to unwind the Jesus-as-Atoner message he was preaching.
Excellent post.

Why can't you be this clear and succinct more often ?

Don't worry, I've got a lot to square with to God.

I'm not looking forward to my judgement day.

I'm confident, but I know God's gonna have some tough questions for me.

Oh. I'm so sorry, Darwin's Pecker Flecker.

So the high gas prices and high taxes in California are made up by Fox.

For sure, then, Detroit's bankruptcy was also made up by Fox. That Liberal Laboratory of Economics was actually a glowing success!!

My sincere apologies to you and the moonbats of California. I should have gone out there myself so I would know they have low taxes and low gas prices, and not many illegal Mexicans driving drunk.

Thanks, man. Any more of my naive assumptions you would like to dispell?

Don't tell me. Obama didn't tell us we could keep our health plan!

Damn you Fox!!!

I know what you mean - tough questions.

I'm contantly afraid God will ask me "What is the capital of Djibouti?"

When Jesus said that, "I have said you are gods", he wasn't referring to every man. He was referring to magistrates, judges, and other people who hold positions of authority and rule.

Jesus was quoting Psalm 82, the psalm of Asaph. Those were not His words.

It's clear in Psalm 82 that the "gods" were judges and magistrates, specifically evil or wicked judges and magistrates they focused solely on self and worldly things.

“How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. "The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

He's referring to people of authority that have authority over man and think they have authority over God, too.

It's explained as a futile endeavor:

"I said,‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’ But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.”

Really, the whole point of Psalm 82 is that judges have to act impartiality and offer true justice, because even the great judges will stand before God, the one true Judge, someday.

Jesus was only reiterating that fact when he quoted the psalm, He was not implying the humans are gods.
