As usual, you misunderstand the reason I posted that, and as usual you go off on some delusional tangent, completely ignoring it. Probably scares you.

But anyhow, if ever a feeling like that should suddenly grab you, you should immediately shut your mouth and quit showing your ass. Someone, or something, may be coming in there. It won't be what you are used to.

You are sooo flucking easy.

Now I will go to sleep. Goodnight

Nope your guesswork (or deliberate lies) are way off the mark but what can we expect from one of so little intelligence?

What a maroon!
You should have learned something.

IS THE BUYBULL INSPIRED?

If it is, it should be a book that no man -- no number of men -- could produce.
It should contain the perfection of philosophy.
It should perfectly accord with every fact in nature.
There should be no mistakes in astronomy, geology, or as to any subject or science.
Its morality should be the highest, the purest.
Its laws and regulations for the control of conduct should be just, wise, perfect, and perfectly adapted to the accomplishment of the ends desired.
It should contain nothing calculated to make man cruel, revengeful, vindictive or infamous.
It should be filled with intelligence, justice, purity, honesty, mercy and the spirit of liberty.
It should be opposed to strife and war, to slavery and lust, to ignorance, credulity and superstition.
It should develop the brain and civilize the heart.
It should satisfy the heart and brain of the best and wisest.
It should be true.

Does the Old Testament satisfy this standard?

Is there anything in the Old Testament -- in history, in theory, in law, in government, in morality, in science -- above and beyond the ideas, the beliefs, the customs and prejudices of its authors and the people among whom they lived?
Is there one ray of light from any supernatural source?

The ancient Hebrews believed that this earth was the center of the universe, and that the sun, moon and stars were specks in the sky.
With this the Bible agrees.

They thought the earth was flat, with four corners; that the sky, the firmament, was solid -- the floor of Jehovah's house.
The Bible teaches the same.

They imagined that the sun journeyed about the earth, and that by stopping the sun the day could be lengthened.
The Bible agrees with this.

They believed that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman; that they had been created but a few years before, and that they, the Hebrews, were their direct descendants.
This the Bible teaches.

If anything is, or can be, certain, the writers of the Bible were mistaken about creation, astronomy, geology; about the causes of phenomena, the origin of evil and the cause of death.

Now, it must be admitted that if an infinite Being is the author of the Bible, he knew all sciences, all facts, and could not have made a mistake.

----------
So, just like you must choose a God, you must choose a Bible. And here are your Judeo-Christian choices:
1. The Jewish Pentateuch.
2. The Catholic Bible.
3. The Protestant Bible, any of many translations.
4. One of the many Protestant Bibles with the Book of Mormon thrown in.
5. One of the many Protestant Bibles with Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures thrown in.

I repeat, which Bible?

All of them have one thing in common they are complete nonsense.

Nope science has provided myriad lines of irrefutable proof and you, with nothing but a twice complied and much edited book and absolutely no evidence cry because you have nothing to counter that proof.

The clincher is that you actually use some of that proof to claim no proof.

Hypocrite much?

Gift? Lol

If this gift truly required nothing as the claim says, then you wouldn't have to accept it to be saved.

This line of reasoning is used repeatedly by those trolling for converts in schools, offices, on TV, and just about anywhere else you find an aggressive member of the cult of Jesus.

It's the same nonsense that is spewed and taught in Bible study classrooms in most churches.

The problem is that the gift of salvation as taught in the Bible is anything but free.

It first requires that you perform a work. That work is believing Jesus is your Savior and that only he can serve as your intermediary with God.

Of course it also means that you accept all the baggage that goes along with that.

It means you accept as truth that this "God" will punish people for the "sin" of disbelief(Mark 16:16, John 16:9, John 3:18, John 3:36, Heb 3:12, 1 John 2:22), it requires that you worship a God who will provide infinite punishment for finite sins, and it requires that you accept a God with the behavior of a rather manipulative, power hungry, petty tyrant.

It means you must abandon your mind to save your soul. You must confess Jesus is your Lord and worship him as such.

Make no mistake concerning the actual nature of this so-called "free" gift.

Salvation is exchanged for worship and it's nothing more than a holy barter system where you say the magic words and you are saved. On the surface it's cheap, easy, and painless. It appeals to anyone who doesn't want to be burdened with thinking for themselves, but it's in no sense "free".

This form of holy fire insurance is nothing more than false advertising and should be treated with the same regard one would have when he opens a box of Cracker Jacks and digs out the cheap trinket that came as a "free" gift when you purchased the box it came in.

I can assume you have never had one of those feelings where you feel someone staring at you, or you get goosebumps out of nowhere.

Then you had your mother answer the phone to avoid it.

Poor GML. A scared little boy terrified by the unknown that he whistles louder than anyone by the graveyard. He forces himself to put on a big front of being so knowledgeable and so cool, and so in the know. Just like many adolescents do. His fear has stunted his development.

You can choke to death reading this, young puppy. You will be facing mortality for real. Your illusions will vanish. You will have no place to go, and no knowledge how to get there. Your game will end.

You are of the age where god consciousness tends to develop in men. Perhaps you will start thinking more seriously about your mortality and purpose in this existence instead of dancing away from terrifying thoughts with a wave of the hand and flip words like a scared girl who found herself in a situation she can't handle.

Your bluster and bullshit won't work.

People like Dave & Your Truly Bro. Clownie, are christians who stand up for what is right, who speak out against evil, who function as light and salt in our culture. Jesus said that as believers, we are the light of the world, and we are the salt of the earth (see Matthew 5:13Ė14).

Onward christian soldiers!!!!!

To 'THINK' is a foreign concept to the immature an uneducated mind.

Somewhere there is a church that needs another puppet to control and extract money from.
