One would need to show at least occasional use of it.

Something I haven't seen from you yet.

And, oh caller of others as judgemental, you might want to consider dropping the whole "you're going to hell" routine.

No such thing.

I'd say nice try, but it really wasn't. Seriously juvenile.

i think they should all have the equal right to repent of their destructive behavior before they perish! but, i don't think that they should have the right to bring the rest of society down with them...
I thought we were talking about gays.

You know. Those people whose sex lives don't affect anybody but them.

Are you equating gays with all those other crimes that DO harm others?

If so, please explain.

;)

True enough, but the thing is that Christian ideology hinges on the concept of actual free will. If you take free will away, then the whole house of cards falls down.

Interestingly, the God if the Bible is not described as omniscient at all. Quite the opposite in fact. God is surprised, angered (not to say petulant), and changes it's mind. None of those things would be possible if God was actually omniscient. So Biblically-speaking God is not omniscient anyway, and by extension not omnipotent. It's only Christians who insist that God is the most extreme everything, but that aren't actually backed-up by their own book on this.

Nothing is required of anyone. Jesus paid for everyone's sins. Mission accomplished.

if a gay's sex life didn't affect anybody but them, we wouldn't be having this conversation; i.e. you wouldn't be pushing for certain ambiguous 'rights' and i wouldn't be arguing about ambiguous 'rights':-)

I disagreed to your post - in order to facilitate a discussion.
I can see you refused or don't know how to do that.
If this is your stance - name calling and all....then you really don't know anythign about your religion.
"how do you know He is not the Creator?"
- Jesus never called himself such.....neither should you....if you follow Jesus in any sense of his teachings.
Did I offend you? I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were so touchy. I'll try to be more sensitive.

Questions.

Does the bulk of Christianity consider Jesus Creator?

Why?

You don't know my belief system.

This is something that KM is always trying to pull..."You don't know my belief system!"
But IANS has it right. KM may not have given us the specifics, but one can clearly infer from his posts what the major points of his beliefs are. He is far more transparent than he thinks he is.

"The prevalent theory of cosmic origins prior to the Big Bang theory was the “Steady State,” which argued that the universe has always existed, without a beginning that necessitated a cause.

However, this new evidence strongly suggests that there was a beginning to our universe.

If the universe did indeed have a beginning, by the simple logic of cause and effect, there had to be an agent – separate and apart from the effect – that caused it.

That sounds a lot like Genesis 1:1 to me:“In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.”

So this latest discovery is good news for us believers, as it adds scientific support to the idea that the universe was caused – or created – by something or someone outside it and not dependent on it.

Atheist-turned-agnostic astronomer Fred Hoyle, who coined the term “Big Bang,” famously stated,“A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with physics."

Do you know that the board of his church (not THE church) is like 3 people?
Do you know the WBC has about 40 people in its congregation?
40.
Your point?

The board, 3 people or 20, is still a misogynistic bunch of bigoted a-holes.

And its congregation is a bunch of 40 more bigoted a-holes.

I see you are making excuses again. You do that a lot, for the most egregious behavior of the religious.
