Since God created the guidelines to sin and, Christians are his followers, how do you think Christians are sinners?
Christians are born sinners and they die sinners, and no Christian makes it through life not creating new sin. Recognition of this is Christianity 101. Jesus the Christ (praise be upon him) died for your sins, and believing in him and accepting that fact- that you are a sinner- and asking to be forgiven for those sins is where you get the ticket into heaven.

My mother used to take baking soda to reduce heartburn, not flatulence. One baby was born, white from baking soda coating.
Supposedly, if you add parsley to beans, it reduces gas. But, Parsley gives unnatural "wang" to the beans. Best to have a great pot of beans and fart for all your worth. It'll be over in a day or two.
As I said (comment one) baking soda can be used to treat gas at the front end.

You will note he keeps repeating what I said before he said it.

I've never added parsley to beans but when I do use parsley, I use the flat leaf kind, the curly parsley is supposed to be used as a garnish and unfortunately grocers are meeting the demand of parsley with people who think it is for cooking... and I think it has an off taste.

I've already explained the indigestion has nothing to do with the acid (and you will notice the goal post have been moved from why beans cause gas... which is mostly the sugar the body cannot easily digest... lacking the enzymes).

Hence: Beano.

There's a clip from the Groucho Marx show where he asked a contestant the slang name of the food soldiers had (and the clue he gave was "noise" and the correct answer was supposed to be "celery" and the soldier said "beans"... Groucho gave him the point...

Christians keep God first and are, thus, protected from possessions and such. Catholics chase the devil because, they have a connection to him.

Actually, he hasn't repeated anything, but don't let that become an impediment to your prevarications.

I disagree. I think the majority of churches are deceptive but, not the religion or God, Himself. That's why I prefer to read the bible and put my faith in His word.

I see you are still pining away for someone to love, Mr Closeted Gay man.

How very sad for you, too--

-- all that unrequited love of yours, going to waste.

Or would that be unrequited hate of yours?

With you, it's impossible to distinguish what you call "love" and what you call "hate".

Both have the same dysfunctional behavior on your part, you see.

Well, if you remember BarfFoot is using scrounged "cookwear" over an open flame?

It's hardly surprising he always experiences boil-over.

It must be those old used paint cans he uses as a stewpot.

Which also explains his brain-damage: lead poisoning from old lead-based paint (still in the cans)....

Your admission that you hate all non-christians is duly noted.

No. We are not God and will never be God. True, we are his actors and, we have a role to play. We have to follow his script or, be cast out of the play. Just like your job. You have to obey the boss or find a new job. Rules.
However, just like your job , you know who butters your bread and are loyal to him.
God is just a fairy-tale, Oh Most Stupid One.

The churches do not teach the true Word. That is why I prefer to follow the bible, not the church. The best rule of law, moral and otherwise, is the 10 Commandments. You don't need church to follow the 10.
You have failed to prove god is real.

Go back to square one, and begin again.

Fail.

Sorry but, that's false. Baptism washes sin and collects a pledge to sin no more. That's why the baptisms/savings normally come after a person has grown into adulthood. So that they can truly start fresh. Even God knows that a young person has to go through a period of sin, before he can be saved. Catholics think you can say Hail, Mary - whenever you F-up and start fresh. It's not so.
Look up Herbert W. Armstrong, he spoke the truth.
Still no proof your monster, terrorist god is real.

Remember: Only TERRORISTS use torture.

Your god?

Uses INFINITE torture!

Your god?

An INFINITE terrorist...

.. not good.

Has he moved back to the railroad's crossing, trestle bridge encampment? I thought that they had sent him packing? Even they have standards, and slimy beans are definately frowned upon.
