Not true at all. I just don't support painting with a broad brush, and extrapolating the actions of some, to all members of a group. I don't support that for Christians, either.

Riiiiight.

Now the Christians hang gay youth from barbed wire, and beat them to death. They are FAR more civilized.

Thanks, fell into my Rhetorical Trap.

In my second quote, you fail to note that what I am replying to, was a statement that Christians are all wonderful, all civilized, and that I was supplying an example of an exception.

Giving you, once again, a chance to proclaim "well, those were not real Christians!!! That was terrible, that was murder, that was wrong"

instead, what we keep hearing about that murder.....is silence. (one did appropriately post, and good on 'em. But no other "Christian" has done do)

Honestly, I didn't know that I could delete it. And I wouldn't anyway because in a sick way, that might be worse than letting the thread continue. I can only imagine the hate I might get from "censoring" the thread.

K now you know. But you don't want to do what you said your value was - not perpetuating mass spew about Christianity - because of the hate that might come your way? We all have our values I guess, self interest is pretty high for all of us.

I'm intentionally staying out of this, as much as I want to jump in, believe me :) But in response to direct comments to me ..

I believe that Kalimon asked you directly if Christians were better than Muslims.

Thanks for your thread!

This has to be right up there for most ironic thread evah
Despite the fact that I'm the OP, I couldn't agree more.

rbord, you're coming across like a high school bully trying to pick a fight for no reason. No fight to be had here. I think the vast majority of people got my point with the very first post so I'll just leave it at that. Gonna go climb now.

These militant atheists seem to have squirrels banging around in their skulls

No atheist will acknowledge the Christian radical movement to free slaves and abolish slavery in 19th century America

Similarly, you won't find any atheists devoting their entire lives to the sickest of the sick, in the slums of Calcutta, without taking a single rupee in profit

It so amazes me, and saddens me more than anything, how it is that people are so far disconnected for their own consciousness and from the consciousness of people all around and throughout time.

Do you really believe mature men/women would devote their lives and resources toward a God of no thing without ever reciprocating any thing? God and the bible are living and working in people's lives today. Atleast I KNOW He is in my life and the people I pray with.

Every single day is extremely precious it took an awful lot of work to get us to this point, IT'S NO ACCIDENT!
Don't waste life on worldly trash. Pick up people that are down and out, less fortunate, not as smart as you. This is where you will meet the savior.

You're not the only one, so don't sweat it. We have been beaten down for years.

Some remain silent and go on with their lives, and that's fine, but others speak out and denounce THIS BULLSH#T!

I, and the army behind me are tired of this. There is a stewing army of people who want America back. The America where we didn't know what Spec Ops were doing, where we killed jihadis on sight. The America where kids could run around carelessly until dark in the neighborhood without any fears.

We're not there yet.

As for people you meet and your personal lives? Rock on!

Illegitimi non carborundum. Do NOT let the bastards get you down.

"When we look around at the actions of most religious people, they are often NOT practicing the love that they profess for humankind in general, and the poor in particular....





'We see the richest folks, who proclaim their devoutness, actually taking actions to suppress the poor and middle class, and keep their foot firmly upon their necks. We see contributions....when they are deductible. We see laws designed to concentrate wealth. We see little of the actions sanctioned by the Jesus they profess to love."...





TRUE...

rbord you're coming across like a high school bully trying to pick a fight for no reason.

Sorry if I sounded judgmental. Not my intent at all.

Jawon you're coming across like you lack strength of your own convictions, or maybe misunderstand them - more mass spew about Christianity, less mass spew about Christianity? Which is it? Are you sure that you're being honest about the value that you're serving?

My thanks to you are sincere - glad to see you taking a more active role in your thread with the rest of us.

All I'm saying is that whatever your worldview, continued seeking is wrestling is what we ALL need.

Is that really all you're saying? If I have a relationship in my soul with a spiritual advisor which I call Jesus, but I don't believe the story about how a human 2000 years ago was sent down by God, what are, as you claim your motivation is, the eternal implications? Will God still use one of his saves on me, or am I SOL?

Thanks again!

rbord, sincerely and with no animosity, I am at a loss what your point is. What I thought I was saying pretty clearly all along is this...

1. I believe (as I think most people do) that online discussions about religion is useless. The tendency is to spray, not listen (just read this thread).

2. If there is sincere interest in discussing religion, it should be done in relationship so we get to dig deeper together and understand each others' backstory.

3. If anyone wants a more personal view of someone's journey to Christianity, supertopians can feel free to contact me.

Jawon,
Your invitation is worthy!

But you can tell from the spew-acholics here in the last pages that alot of spewers aren't ready to come face to face with their own face..

Frankly, i believe "spewing" truths into their minds is something God can use! Remember, Gods "Word" is the foundation of the world! And without a foundation, their house is made of straw and will be blown away. It IS up to us to share His Word.
