maybe you can add something to this conversation besides a stubborn attempt to prove that you are always in some way technically right.

Thanx Barry. If you were able to see what I have been saying all along, then Oxbow should have been able to.

LOL!

I thought the same thing when I read his post!

LOL!

ANSWER: Either, you was insulted, or Oxbow was given credit. Or, a little of both. I dunno.

Your reply made me "LOL," literally, though.

No it is NOT from the top. You DO have a reading deficiency and also an unscriptural, argumentative, contentious attitude and evidently a huge chip on your shoulder. You have deliberately refused to understand/ignored my explanation.
Before you read any further I suggest you scroll up to my post #85328 and read the post which started this line of discussion.

The post which you keep arguing about is my 2d reply to Nettie’s post #85304, quoted above. When Nettie misunderstood my 1st reply I rephrased it. Please note as I have been saying all along I did not say that anyone was cherry picking, Nettie did and I challenged her by saying,“If anyone is observed cherry picking scripture…then…”
.
You would know this if you had bothered to read. Nettie’s post is #3 above the one you keep arguing about.
.
But you evidently are so convinced that you are right and so determined to get in my face that you didn’t even try to check it out..

That is not the post of nettie of which I responded to...

<quoted text>so are these the words of Jesus or not?
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Mark 9:43
And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
vs 44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
vs 45
And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
vs 46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
vs 47
And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
vs 48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Matthew 5:22
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
and if the Revelation is the revelation of Jesus Christ.....
Revelation 20:12-14
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
sure looks to me as though he believed and taught about a fire in hell.
FREAKSHOW....it's symbolic. Not reality. A loving, caring GOD would NEVER burn imperfect people, prone to mistakes....burn people forever!!! Crazy thinking. Hellfire is symbolic of total death, like Gehenna, a garbage dump. Why would a GOD of love torture imperfect people forever..they are imperfect!!! A loving God of justice would surely destroy those who are truly...truly bad. Your definition of God...is a God of torture..like the INQUISITION. The Inquisition was MAN's doing, the Catholic Churches doing. NOT GODS. Hell is symbolic of total death....only for those who deserve it. Those who are true opponents of Gods Kingdom.

Are you actually this dense or are you playing games? I know which post you replied to and I know that Nettie did not say anything about cherry picking in that post! That does NOT make any difference since it was not the first post in the exchange. My reference to "cherry picking" was not addressing her second post but her first post which I have now posted twice.
.
And as I have said repeatedly I did NOT make an accusation of "cherry picking," I was responding to Nettie's accusation that Christians did that.
.
Anyone with an IQ above room temperature can see that the post you are arguing about is the 2d post below the post where Nettie accuses Christians of cherry picking. In the post you replied to Nettie said something about me agreeing with her. Did you even stop to think what was I supposed to be agreeing with her about? Evidently you jumped in with the intent to attack me you didn't even bother with what I was discussing.
.
As I said which you are too stupid to understand. I did NOT make an accusation that Christians cherry pick scripture. Nettie did and my post which you are ignorantly misrepresenting was addressing that post.
.
Take your ignorant, chidlish whining somewhere else.

a Holy god would not tolerate sin. however a Holy god also would have to be perfectly just and perfectly fair. that's why he offers salvation freely to all who will believe and receive by grace through faith. those who reject him... well they are condemned already and the love of God is not in them. so how can the love of God help them?
sorry. a loving God will not save them from the hell fire that is promised to those who die without Christ.
it would not be true love now would it if he would permit unrepentant, unforgiven, unwashed sinners to freely enter heaven.

Since you're a bloody atheist what can you possibly know about a god that you don't even believe exists. Talk about FREAKSHOW, you're it!

I'm sure we can. We'll have to ask Doris Roberts to be the president, though. She's the actress that plays Ray Romano's mother (Marie) on "Everybody Loves Raymond," and she's, in my humble opinion, got the masked, insulting zinger down to a science! lol

You can play all the infantile word games you want to, it does NOT matter which post you responded to. You behaving like an idiot does NOT change which post I responded to. My reference to cherry picking was in response to this post by Nettie.
